In the world of words

Magical Woman

She is a magical woman

She drives me crazy

When I look into her eyes

All I see the storm and  blue skies

She is so magical & irresistible

Her voice so charismatic

Her attire so unconquerable.

She is the one I am looking for

She is the one I wanna hold onto

She is the one I wanna go places with

Yes, she is the one ❤ !

P.S Someone asked me to write this poem for someone really special.

 

Center of Attention.

via Daily Prompt: Center

He was pushed behind the walls because he couldn’t do anything. He was stopped at the doors because a useless human deserve no invitation. He always fancy arts and singing was his passion but he was told about his failure frequently. He failed and failed several times yet, he has no regrets. He quenched his thirst in solitude, his fingers running through the strings, his voice, inaudible yet, every thing around him feel the rhythm of his music. He was now the center of attention, for every little thing danced around him following the pattern, high on tempo, playing it to the beat. He was the winner at that night, A winner who has no competitor.

Daily Prompt

Hesitate

She listened quietly,

She was hurt but,

She hesitated to speak up

He took all the blame on him,

Stood there firmly but,

Hesitated to speak for himself.

His 11th birthday, He knew;

His parents are busy,

Money has more value,

Hence; He Hesitated,

To ask for celebration.

She wanted a doll,

Knew; mum's working  hard,

As usual, hesitated to ask,

For present again.

 

They all hesitated,

They all miscalculated,

Their chances refuted.

Their lives revolted.

An unwanted Guest

Baby

She was their first child, First love baby. She deserved their unwanted attention; love, care & what not? But what happened was just the opposite of expectations. She was a baby that was wanted yet, unwanted. She was a baby that couldn’t be able to pull a smile on their face when she breathed for the first time. Nothing could’ve helped them to soothe out their misery.

They wasn’t ready for it because it’s too early now, All the responsibilities were dropped on their shoulders. What to do? Why did she come in this world so early? Why God why?

These questions always popped up in her head when she was going about the day, doing stuff and chores. She took a maternity leave and the very next day, her husband lost a job. She couldn’t think of anything else; rather blamed her only child which was the cause of her miseries, according to her. Strange..isn’t it? She brought the bad luck. She brought the curse upon them, She thought about it the other day, while putting the baby in cradle.

Why would a tiny little child be the cause of their miseries? How are they get bind to miseries due to a baby? She was going all nuts, nowhere to go. Things weren’t going well, It was hard for her husband to find a decent job. Their mental peace was messed to the point that they have started hating their own blood. Whenever she got angry, she needed something to vent out her frustration so, Someone had to play the role of punching bag, a radio or a dairy. Ironically, Her daughter served the purpose well.

Glitter But not Gold

Glitter

Glittery and sugar coated words that never meant to be real. It made her go all gaga over it. She was like, “He is the best man”. She proudly narrated everywhere, she get a chance to go; Parties, birthdays, weddings. She’d say, “I am proud of him’.

But all went in vain when he showed his true colors, which leads her to admit, “not all that glitter is gold”. She has started to think with a new perspective, trying to own things that seem real. Her real journey begins with a new way.

I was asked to translate my happiness

I said, ‘I don’t know’

I was asked to translate my miseries

I said, ‘God knows’

I was asked to translate the feelings

I said, ‘Insensitivity’

I was asked to translate the meaning of life

I said, ‘Apathy’

I don’t know why they are asking stupid questions,

They won’t understand the sufferings and emotions.

Daily Prompt: Squat

Squat2279782-abused-woman-black-and-white

Eight men squatting  her body

tearing up her silk linen  blouse,

She screamed until word fades in her mouth.

She fought back but no energy left in her,

she felt like a piece of trash dumped in a dumpster.

They were ripping every bit leaving her breathless

She was their prey and they were hunters; nevertheless

hunting her and haunting her at the same time.

The pain was excruciating but she didn’t stop resisting

They looked at her mockingly, spitting at her laughing vigorously,

telling her, her right place, “My foot”.

 He shouted stamping his foot,

They raised their hands, Victory sign it was,

They conquered her and left her in eternal despair..

images-5First Light

The first light that pierced throw curtains of my memory

It caressed my bare skin, touched my eyes.

I felt the warmth, heard the soothing melody,

I took me to the other world, whispering melancholy.

I strode across the realm of fantasies,

Engulfed the existence of envisages.

There was no going back  as;

I was awestruck at this new discovery,

Becoming fond of this musicality.

It’s the first light that touched my heart,

Sparkled my soul, erased the dark spot.

Expectation

‘He is such a prince charming, He really loves me and care for me’ ‘ He knows what I want even before I say a word. He buy me gifts and flowers even though I never ask for it’. Here, Look at this picture’, She flips through her photo gallery and showed me a picture where they both were standing on a beach, holding hands and smiling at each other. That was a perfect click; I liked it. ‘You know I love blue eyes and see ! I got one with the blue eyes’. Nina chattered happily while sipping fruit punch.

‘How are you so sure about it?’ I asked curiously. Off course, Her happiness matters but I was being overprotective and I think that’s my right because she is my best mate.

‘Oh ! come on, He said he loves  me and he will do anything for me. He’s really into me and now he wants to marry me’. She smiled and I saw her eyes sparkling with love. I prayed for her happiness, silently.

‘Okay ! but I still want you to be careful and don’t believe every word of him, you know my tag line “Expectations lead to disappointment”? I tried to warn her even though I was happy for her. She told me about wedding plans and the bridal shower. we spent quality time discussing pros and cons of wedding and stuff.

‘How are you?, how is your family? do he loves you the way he used to before?’ I bombarded her with questions because we have met after 4 months and I was so excited to see her that I forgot to see that she has changed a lot.

‘Yeah, He is good to me because I serve him and cook for him and his family’. she said gloomily. ‘and love you once told me about?’ I asked eagerly.

‘Love? Well, Not everything meant for you even though how hard you try. That was a lie and I was imprudent to believe his every word. He wanted to marry me not because, he loved me but because, his mother wanted a son and his first wife has burdened him with two daughter’.

She was sad and lost in the sea of coldness,..’you were right..she went on, expectations lead to disappointment’ she said skeptically……
