Of head and heart

Learned first about Pantoum here and found it a good challenge to try ..

In the dead silent night
draping darkness around
“what’s going wrong in life”
i sit and wonder this aloud;

draping darkness around
i try to listen to my heart
i sit and wonder this aloud
“this better doesn’t last”

i try to listen to my heart
it has been silent for long
“this better doesn’t last”
reasons are always wrong.

it has been silent for long
this battle of heart and head
reasons are always wrong
no matter what happens in end.

this battle of heart and head
“that’s what going wrong in life”
no matter what happens in end,
In the dead silent night.

A letter from angel !

I knew you not more than your name

guess,even  for you it was the same;

yet you sent for me a letter that day

in times when fashion is to call or  mail.

Life was not treating me great, you knew

was it reason enough for that letter from you ?

With what authority did you decide to write

all those harsh realities and the inspiring lines ?

Was it your words or the faith you instilled in me

that i cleared all hurdles that came into being !

To that letter and you, i will forever owe

my first success, my pride for my first job.

You were the angel to me,not just that day

but every time i needed,your words were there.

all thanks to the letter you wrote to me

and the fact that it was well responded.

For Life

Nightmares,

dark shadows,

blood stained

walls and floor,

these are not

just illusions

but her overt fears

which she fights

amidst tears

and clenched fists;

waiting to end

the ordeal

with smiles

and not her life.


So many of us are haunted with past or present fears/events. This is for all the brave women who ended such life to live a new one not succumbed to it.

Nightmare

dark thoughtsLock it deep,
block it forever,
Poke it never,else
choke you,they will
all just in dreams.

Prisoners they take,
slaves they do make,
in your fears they live,
to you,tears they will give.
all just in dreams.

repeat them not,
heed to them never,
remembered if ever,
pretend to think not
all for your dreams.

dream,live,play but dare
you make rulers out of
your worst nightmares !

God’s lessons

There’s always a good
in all that god does;
i hear it so much often
from myself not others.

Then sometimes i feel
i deserve to be punished
for journey into the dark
how could i err like that ?

I know i will have to wait
till you decide to show way
assured that i have learned
lessons which were meant.

He breaks me piece by piece
from person,place and thing;
till i am left standing alone
just his hands to hold close.

So let it be this way again
i will silently bear the pain
for your blessings i will pray
forgive me,if at all i stray.

I wished for you

when flowers appear bright,
like the stars in the night,
when winds suddenly flow,
full of fragrance of rose,
when an old forgotten memory
lures the heart out of misery,
when some never heard song,
gives smiles like never before,
when a tender touch of care,
is wished and immediately there,
know you are being thought of,
love and luck sent for you in loads.

Reason to smile

pray that you never

hand the key to joys to some one

be not a prey yourself

Wrote this haiku on twitter today .. and since then i have been thinking about it … Is it really in our hands to stop being such a fool as to give the key to happiness in some one else’s hands ?? Does life really make such beings out of us ?? We, who call ourself wise; who talk as if all is well under control in our life .. is it really so all time ?? why do we make wrong choices ? Or is it that choices go wrong later !! And when this happens, why don’t we easily let it go ??  why do we want to hold the same time, people and feelings ??  Wonder if any one can give an answer satisfying to every one !! All i know is i can sit and cry for ages or can stand up and smile for myself whenever i think about it .. Am gonna try the latter .. Are you ??

A smile you owe,

to yourself alone;

smile you must

for yourself just.


A smile is a gift

not to be recieved;

its the best one

to yourself you give.

Some days

some times days pass
silently,unnoticed;
you live through them
but only later feel it.

you no longer desire
some one to love you
you realize the feeling
is just there,inside you.

some times days pass
seemingly uneventful;
you live through them
feeling so peaceful.

you forgive yourself
and forget the hurt;
you feel good for times
you remember,you loved.

some times days pass
unbelievably thought of;
how it changed your life
you imagine but not know.
