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.

Struggle

She was struggling all alone,

none could hear the silent groan.

Bruises, too deep….

scathed by some creep.

 

A solitary tear

trickled down the cheek,

as the onlookers

gave her a grotty peek.

 

Dejected and deprived of

love and care,

the situation was squicky

and full of despair.

 

Not a single noble soul

dared to make it right,

most turned their faces

after seeing her plight.

 

Waiting for a miracle

she looked up the sky,

hoping our Father in Heaven

will listen to her sigh.

 

With no desires left

where humanity stood bereft,

she decided to leave

with none to grieve.

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 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.
