My heart is like A ball of fire It gets ignited It starts pumping When I am surrounded By loved ones. It shrinks and shivers When it faces indifference. I like to keep it light though Clearing the muck of negativity Becomes a fight though But practice makes a woman perfect And it’s cleaner than before.
Happiness smells like A freshly brewed coffee A freshly baked muffin. Happiness smells like Mom cooked food. A recently ordered book. My favorite spot at Home. Happiness smells like Sunshine in winters Roses in my garden Love in the air.
The moon is that balloon Which shows up at night Sometimes white Sometimes grey Sometimes yellow It always have something to say To those who have time to observe It’s changing shapes It’s robe of clouds. It’s the night lamp Which God turns on For his babies to sleep.
Last time my home felt sad When I realized my body Is my permanent home now. Rest all houses are mere addresses Which might change At the stake of a single friction. When I realized that it’s not my home If it’s not in my name. And no matter where I live I have to follow rules set by the owner And maybe now I will always live With a fear of what if they ask me to leave. What if history repeats itself And I am asked to leave another address. One of my goals now is To get a home of my own. In my land they say Girls don’t own properties But suitcases and jewelry. I hope such proverbs change. I will play as patriarchy please till then.
Love ends when The bitterness outweighs Bonding between you and me. When efforts are done From one side alone. When I cease to be a pleasure And turn into a test of your tolerance. When you stop counting me As your strength. Wish you regret your decision soon. But there would be no looking back now. I thought it would last a lifetime But some people are just meant To be a tease.
Your smile is like An open chest of treasure That shines brighter than gold. Your smile is complete Like a full moon sky. Your ear to ear smile Assures me, you are mine If not forever then for this lifetime. I am smitten by your smile I have captured it with my eyes And I think about it When times aren’t right And I feel okay. Please keep smiling When you look my way As long as you are mine.
Love is a gift Which only the blessed one Receive. I too was the lucky one But it didn’t last long It came with an expiry date And made my heart break. So many happy memories Weaved together Yet that wasn’t sufficient To make him stay. Can’t defy destiny Is all I got. But I was lucky to experience love Life has many aspects Other than love And I am going to explore. For love and commitment All doors are closed I am committed to my goals.
My heart knows It doesn’t belong to anyone But me. It doesn’t have to rely on anyone But me. My heart knows It is safe with me. People will come And stay for a while But I am my permanent resident It is my responsibility To take care of it. Acceptance and submission To destiny, is my only strategy To keep it safe in the now.
Love is that friend Who always gives us strength To move forward in life. Who hears our troubles And keep us light. Love is that friend Who stays by our side And fight the world If the need arise. Love is that friend Who I will always keep close Irrespective of many fights.
