Even when away, they loved the most


Under the starlit sky, with thousands of lanterns floating up in the air

lighting up the whole place

with fireflies lighting up the grass beneath her feet

She stood grasping her breath

Her eyes had the depth that none could read

She waited, all along to find her soulmate

she never knew when she fell in love

it was like he came and conquered her heart

even when she never knew she was giving away everything to him

he came and swept her away from the floor into the heights of life and the depth of his heart

She whispered to herself thousand times “whether she should love or not? “

Her heart always answered that she needed him

Everything changed as she was falling madly in love with him

she forgot the world

she forgot what she was

she lost herself in love

love was truly blind, as she could never see anything other than him

love was truly maddening her, as she could never think of anything other than him

every breath she took was named for him

he became the world to her

he became the wind that fondled her

he became the pain that she never wanted to get over

he became the smile that never faded from her face

he was the vision in her eyes

he was just hers forever, even when worlds apart from each other

both were bonded together as one soul

even when the world separated them.

As he lay on her lap …listening


She was busily talking to him all along

their words were uninterrupted

they spoke for hours and hours

he looked at her with utmost love with his lips just giving a smile

his eyes were locked in her eyes

even if she talked and talked

her hands were fiddling in his hands

and her eyes fixed on him all along

she could speak of anything and everything all along

he smiled and enjoyed her talks

her hands slowly moved on to his forehead

he slid his head onto her lap, enjoying the fondling fingers in his hair

she loved to be with him all along

she cuddled him in her arms and planted a kiss on his forehead

he slowly drifted into sleep …embraced by her

she watched as he slipped into sleep, she adored it

she kept looking at him and loved him more and more.

The little girl wept silently…yet none noticed


The little girl sat at her desk

silently browsing through the pages of the book in front of her

even though her mind was not even letting her read

she just gazed at the book

Her mind was with the sounds of the kids playing outside

she cursed her self-being locked up in the room for hours and hours of studying

she felt exhausted, but her parents never bothered to even ask her

They stressed her from point to point

on each and everything

they wanted a perfect one, not a good one

she felt she was tortured,

she felt being snatched

she felt being lonely

the sadness on her face was neglected

to make her perfect, her parents quarrelled and competed

little did they realise that they are hurting her from inside

she wept inside

her silence was taken as being dumb and useless

little did her parents knew she was causing invisible scars on her soul

the little girl wept from inside, hoping that one day they would realise

what these scars have turned her into….

All she wanted little play and little time to enjoy

All she requested silently was that

She revolted, but none noticed

the little heart bled.

By the sea, my thoughts battled with the waves …

I stood there gazing at the amazing waves of the sea
the sunset, where the beauty is overbound
at the far horizon, where the sky meets the sea,
I watched the red hot ball shaped sun settling down into the sea
as if it was going to take a plunge into the cold sea waters
the soft breeze was fondling me and the cool waters were washing my feet
the shimmering sand beneath my feet washed away with every wave
leaving a large footprint were my feets immersed, soaked in the sand
each time I step out and stand in the next position when the wave arrived
and every time I made a footprint, the other one vanished
I was playing with the waves when the sun began to sink into the sea
I watched as the birds flew away to their homes
and the beach was filling with people who love the night
the sunset was a tantalizing image in my thoughts
I wished I could just vanish away like that one day after shining bright and strong all along
I wished I could just be the light for someone’s life
I wished I was the sole reason for the bloom of a life
I wished I could rise up into the sky, like the sun and sink into the deep ocean with no strings attached
I wished I could be like the sun, who invisibly brightened the moon and dazzling stars to award a prodigious night sky
I wished to be imperceptible but be a reason for someone’s happiness
I wished to be the waves, that could carry the weight of the heart and leave behind the treasure trove from beneath the sea
I wished to be the tree, whose shade was comforting
I wished to be someone who loved you the most…
As I was lost in my thoughts, there you come to fulfill my wishes
holding me in your arms, the safest place on earth I could ever find
holding my hands and conveying me that am the meaning of your life
the life that you give me, is more than what I could dream of
the joy is profound and the blessings are uncountable
I held his hands and walked on the wet sand soaked in the waves
leaving a mark on the sand of our togetherness.
