Beloved; The Fragrance of All
Poem

Beloved; The Fragrance of All

Once I am told, There is something precious than gold. Nothing, but a scent, In which the world will lend.   Beauty is not a word, To demonstrate it as sacred. Medina holds that marvel, Of the ever sustaining floral.   My beloved is the nucleus, Above all the trends of righteousness. It’s an ever-living fragrance, Which lies beyond the lovers.   Yet I haven’t tasted, Still, my mind follows its playlist. Beyond the surge of memory; The scent of beloved is legendary!
The One I have Become
Poem

The One I have Become

Amidst the chaos, Often I lost my way; My mind for what I yearned, But all the wrong ways were worth discovering,   It was never wrong, Just not acceptable, For the one who watches me struggle, It was worth it because of the undiscovered ways; Discovered magic lied within me.   In the journey, few promised to stay and then left, Few promised and still staying having my back, Few never promised anything, But having their well-wishing eyes on me.     I would say, I had the best ways, Unleashing the real me, through people, and ways. How can I not be grateful for, The one I have become? Strong, passionate, dreamy and euphoric
LIFE IS EPIC
Poem

LIFE IS EPIC

When efforts are accomplished to please others, It is plastic and doesn't last long. When endeavours are done with affection and passion, It lasts long; enhances the significance of one.   When you are questioned about being different, Believe, that you are on the right track to attain your dreams. When people don't stay beside you in the present, They don't belong in your magnificent and victorious future.   When you have found the right bond, Sadness and brokenness are never a hassle. When you have found the right words, To uplift you, going back is never an option.   When you seek positivity in negative situations, Accept, that you are a warrior and ready to fight. When you learn to love to enjoy little things, Life is...
Lockdown
Poem

Lockdown

-I- An entire year is greeted With utmost ecstasy “Happy new year” “Have a bright year ahead” A Couple of months passed With different hue Relished the days like a Slave being released from his enslavement, not knowing Further Fetched with hope, as always. A sudden thud begins Devastated and shrugged whilst Enquiring the reason Yet, it’s about a few weeks, Maybe like arid situation in An area. Summer, the flickering sun The relishing activities Halted from being relishing. Monsoon, the petrichor, felt Suffocated without inhaling And exhaling Sensing the dew to our Withered body, to feel alive Is being disordered. Winter, the flakes, melted Without my presence. Meadows being isolated Without the touch of my Toe. -II- However, days being Relished enthusiastic...
His
Poem

His

He was the one who made me grin. Who carries me on his berm. The one and solely superhero of my little heart. Who comes with chocolates and hues every night. I still remember that pale chromatic tooth while he smiles. And I can sense his love in his kiss on my brow. He, he was my guard. His existence made me fearless. A sudden bang. It jolted me awake when I realized it was all a dream. A dream, a bittersweet one. A fugacious recap may be. It has been a decade. Still, I can feel his smell Which must be blended within me.
Feeling Time
Poem

Feeling Time

Time heals everything…. Is it true?... I asked Myself countless ….if it’s the truth Why my scars deepening With time…. Time reformed a lot … be it my life Or my decisions…. But Never have I let it take over me As once time gets hold of you You are going to forget everything Because time is not just a clock It is a feeling…
I’m Lost by A Cost
Poem

I’m Lost by A Cost

Through the window, I see the pathway -you walked away, I feel the emotions, Once suffered, -when you left my side. Glaring at the view, Sitting beside the window, I felt your presence. Neglecting your absence, Wanting to believe you'll never leave, I stay besides, the window, Even when I'm numb, Even in melancholy. My eyes travel across the boundaries, My mind was lost in hopelessness, My soul craving for serenity, My body felt numb. Yet, I prayed and still pray, For your presence, Or at least, For your serenity, in Paradise.                   How easy it is to lose someone, even when you love them in depth. How easy it is to feel utterly hurt, even when you were in utmost happiness. Mates, love yourself & love those who are there for you, your parents, you...
Oblivion
Poem

Oblivion

I choose to be oblivious. I choose to remain, Behind the veils, Of ignorance. I choose to remain in the dark, And let things be. I choose to close my eyes, To sights; That invade my serenity. I choose to not know, Of things that are falling apart. I lend out a deaf ear, To the painful cries, Of that innocent child, Who was brutally raped and I cannot stop, but let pass, The story of that naive man, With dreams in his heart, Who was slaughtered like a sheep. mine more than full tummy, Refuses to digest, the numbers of kids, Sleeping on hungry stomachs. My comforts, shield me from the plight, Of the homeless. My privileges, narrow my vision, And blur out the metaphors of the stifled. My Happiness fills my heart to the brim, Leaving no space for empathy, for the liv...

I hope tonight is the last time

  I hope tonight is the last timeI write about youBecause i don't remember your faceI think i'm free nowI hope tonight is the last time I write about usBecause I don't remember the way you kissedAnd that doesn't make me feel badI hope i can let you go nowBecause your love is replaced by your memory.   Bhagyalakshmi Nair
