The Lost Strength

I was lost
in search of you
somehow made
my way through.
With lots of
strength and grit,
collecting myself
bit by bit.
Now I’ve started
to crawl
and soon I’ll
cross the wall.
Growing stronger
day by day,
I will make
my own way.

As the time
passes by,
I’m learning
again to fly;
without your help
and acceptance
marking my
utmost presence.
The will to
grow and succeed
and to fulfill
my deeds
I’m prepared
to fight again.
The lost strength
is regained.

Missing “You”

Missing someone can really be heart wrenching. I was enduring this feeling one day. Hence I came up with this piece. Hope you all will like it.

—Missing You—

You touched my soul
Like no one before
Left me alone and
shook me, to the core.

An affair full of wrench,
In a sea of tears, I did drench.
You left me with no choice,
Lost in love, without a voice.

Seldom did I forget,
how you made me smile,
A glimpse of you and
my heart, raced a mile.

Reminiscing the time spent together
and the love, as soft as a feather.
Those late night talks,
without fretting about the clocks,
random walks on the moonlit roads
were one of my favorite episodes.

I miss the vibe we shared
those moments will never return, I’m scared.
Missing you is now a routine,
Life has become a blank screen.
With a smile on my lips, I pray
for your welfare, wherever you stay.

The Shore

I was a restless soul

rampant and uncontrolled,

no boundaries to stop

no barriers to withhold.

My soul wandered

in search for repose

but lost amidst

the crowd full of woes.

You came as a calm

wave of breeze,

and made my restive

soul to freeze.

You calmed me the way

sea waves quench

the thirsty shore.

But alas, I was a

mere sandcastle

shattered by your roar.

My Dear Angel

A sweet little angel knocked my door,

I got thrilled to my heart’s core.

I ran towards her with arms too wide,

A glimpse of her and I almost died.

Eyes glittering in the moon light,

My stars, definitely getting bright.

Her bewitching smile seized my breath,

I lost my ground and fell on my head.

She conquered me and ruled my heart,

made me sin and tore me apart.

Tears are hidden behind the smiling face,

Lost my way catching up her pace.

I look for thee in every face I see,

You will stay forever in me.

An Unbroken Bond

An unbroken bond

I still feel your presence

hovering around me,

It makes me frail,

and full of glee.

Drenched in your fragrance,

Lost in your eyes,

In your presence

time flies.

Our encounter was

decided by fate,

Neither do I love

nor do I hate.

Your thoughts still

crowd my life,

making me ponder-

Do I ever cross your mind?

Did I ever mean anything to you?

Or is it too late?

but I will still wait…!!

An Undying Pain #2

—An undying pain—

Every day I feel trapped

with your thoughts over me,

making me lose myself

sans the presence of thee.

Lost in memories

tears roll down the cheek,

full of agony

I am too bleak.

Hold me tight

I’m on a  slope,

the undying pain is

difficult to cope.

Your dreams drown me

to such an extent,

my heart finds it

difficult to relent.

That bewitching smile

commanded my heart,

I ache for you

please don’t depart.

An Undying Pain #1

Sometimes it is difficult to express what it feels when you are deeply hurt. It’s better to be silent and let your words do the talking. This poetry does it for me.

—An undying pain—

I so longed

to be with you.

You made me feel

as no one do.

I still am lost

with no ray of hope.

The undying pain is

difficult to cope.

You provided me

the strength to fight,

without you

life’s an endless night.

Each passing day

makes me realize,

You have gone too far

and left me demoralized.
