The shelter of darkness

The scary stark light very bright, Is the reason behind my fright; The darkness you find fearful, Dresses me pretty and beautiful; Afraid I am to face myself in light, For I will lose my optimistic sight; The dark is understanding and kind, It makes me feel pretty when I am blind; This darkness creates [...]

Beauty and the beast

(This is a symbolic poem based on the fairy tale 'Beauty and the beast' . It shows how love can cure the negatives in a person caused by the situations and conditions in life. No man is good or bad..the situations make him that way) She knew the dark chambers of his heart, She knew [...]

An angel in the dark

I walked down the dungeons dark, On the rough path of realities so stark, Voices yelled and howled at me, I ran for help and hurt my knee, I groped in the dark to find my way, But at every step, fear blocked my way, Soon I heard his footsteps slow, His enchanting voice deep [...]

Lost smiles

I wonder where I lost my lively serene smile, To search that smile I walked long miles, In the desert dead, burning in flames, There I stand amidst those hot sand dunes, I spot the trail of the foot prints you had left, And the place from where you disappeared, I trace the foot prints [...]

The illusions of the fog

She walked wearily with her eyes blind, On a foggy road leaving her sight behind; Soon she saw a face her eyes knew well, On this face once she loved to dwell; With a gush of wind the face vanished, Came a smirky face with purity tarnished; Its lips smirked and eyes shone with smile, [...]

The flame of love

I see the love drop invisible in your eyes, It looks at the drop subdued in my heart's sighs, Neither does it show it's there nor does it see mine, Still it waits there alone despite the destined wind's tries; I feel the warm flame in your hidden heart glow, Wish you would have seen [...]

The seeds you sowed

My life was an arid, dry land in tears, Your words showered  bringing smiles, Leading me to the world of  happiness, Taking away my heavy bundle of toils; Your powerful words healed my heart, In my life, sowing that magical thought, The blunt and weak got sharp and strong, It was then.. those bold battles [...]

The flame and the fire

I lit a flame of hope in my heart, To spread the optimism in the dark; It was bright, bold and beautiful, My dull, lull life was so delightful; The flame soon turned into a fire, The fire of expectations and desire, The urge to have more and more, Burning the heart with the scars [...]

Freedom

You were  born free, They chained you, They easily caged you; But your legs were free, So you felt obliged, Though your  hands were tied, Huh! You call it free? So happy you were! For the little freedom there? They shrugged it off! Their true  responsibility, Such a pity! Freedom is responsibility, They could not [...]

The wicked beauty

The beautiful face shone so bright, Casting its shadow in the midnight; She dressed in sweetness diabetic, Evil hidden inside the image exotic; She cast her spell with her magic black, Singing a song sweeter than a lark; Soon she removed the mask so false, Reached the roof climbing the walls; The shocked horrified the [...]

Protecting the rabbit in me

I found a rabbit hidden inside, Wounded and afraid, I asked the rabbit to step ahead, Face the world with more courage, The wicked will surely try, To kill and bleed the innocence to deadly death..   Step ahead, embrace the world, With a tricky and deceptive mask, Look into the mirror clean, And meet [...]

The drop of bliss

The drop of my eternal bliss, Fell on the pretty red flower, Blessing with a lovely kiss, For a never ending hour;   Glowing in bright sun stream, Looking prettier than ever, But in a crazy whim, The wind took it away forever;   The memories still remained, On the moist delicate petals, When it heavily [...]

Water and fire

The out-roar of fire simmering inside the dead cold water, It gets louder and lightening strikes, louder is the thunder; The water curbs the new born spark but it is not true this time, Spark veils itself,takes a shape secretfully in the "hiding"; The whispers under water talk about the dangers to come, The water [...]

The monster

I was alone, afraid & trembling in the dark, The monster appeared unjust and stark; The air in the room was heavily chanted, Frozen with fear I was totally fragmented; The power game black mailed emotions, Enhancing the gravity of dreadful inhibitions; The struggle of good and evil went on and on, The dogs howled [...]

The flight towards freedom

The brown little spotted deer tried, To break the chains with which she was tied; The curious eyes peeped in and out, Making no noise so no one would doubt; Now free was she, she gracefully wandered; It revealed her beauty, but why she wondered; She loved the new world it bought her peace, She [...]
