That Day, I stepped out, Merry, blasé, In soaking rain, Admiring the gaze, Hopping through, the usual lanes They stood there as ambush predators with sadistic eyes, of a tormentor I was spotted like a rare bird Punished, mauled, for staying away from the herd They mocked, They abused, They touched, They groped I cried for help, struggling to lope A piece of flesh left without a hope I felt the jolt, It shattered my soul, Not only the skin, my dignity they stole I fought with God, for writing this dole Still searching myself, In part and whole That Day, I wish hadn’t come I’ve lost a part of me & the others still feel numb!
Decided to probe the sky
For who does it love?
“A vagabond heart, a free spirit,
Looking to fly high”
Beginning Today, I’ll render goodbyes, to silent tears, the 3am regrets to perpetual fears that cage my soul! Beginning Today, I’d take a chance, make mistakes, turn a page to scribble, another valiant tale! Beginning Today, I’d surrender, to the child, quirky, venturous, tiny embers of spark, waiting to, rekindle a fire again! Beginning Today, I’d embrace odds, open new doors sketch life’s story with my own pen unfazed, unperturbed, by a happy end!
I Wish I were a shadow, of your dreams, the lucid reality the credulous fantasy the aureate sunshine worth following! I Wish I were a shadow, of your tears, the memories held back, the feelings that dissolve, the pain so ethereal that waters your soul! I Wish I were a shadow, of your bewildered self, the bruised heart, the petulant mind, enshrouded by solitude waiting to be found!
I stare at the sky,
drenched in shades of red
Is it the mountain,
professing it’s love
Or the sun blushing away to bed!
She condoned the past, Embracing life, Awaiting a chance, To be judged again!
She walked through the dark Holding hands with her fears Talking to strangers, who were once friends!
