a web of thoughts,
a scene to avoid
to stay sane
though I like to play with them
delving deep into my mind’s alleys
rather an exercise of sorts
the messy rendezvous
however, pushes me with a jolt
to cut the chord and never return
but, this mind so sly
never is shy
to immerse in the labyrinth of chaos
thus continues the messy affair
to narrate tales
to recite verses
the crazy mind conjures!

Stepping stone to her success, she calculated
Betrayal, he cried
Fleeting longevity of fame, she misjudged

Quick and easy,
This life never is,
Riddled with hurdles,
Battles with hopes,
An endless novel,
The story of life goes on,
Chapters that can’t be rewritten,
Pages waiting to be filled in,
No pause button,
Neither can you rewind,
This is it, for better or worse,
Yet, I would say,
Give me five,
For this is the moment to celebrate,
Despite the chaos that lingers,
Struggles shall be sorted eventually,
Dilemmas won’t last forever,
A tribute to the many moments,
That splash a smile,
A prayer of gratitude in return,
Life is beautiful as we make it be!

There isn’t much I yearn,
A little time on my own,
To converse with musings that chance my way,
To pen down some that happen to stay,
In solitude, I create a world thus,
Without traveling the four corners of the world that is,
However, it remains dear to me always,
Though, musings abandon me at times,
A figment of my imagination all this, you may cite,
My favorite of all, this world, despite!

be a rebel.
suffer in silence
be an illegal.
survive with no identity.
impish choices grin!

Oft bitter failures
give one too many reasons
to chase sweet success!
Too many obstacles not to pursue further,
Discouraging rationale without failure,
How long can one succumb to defeat!
It’s not time to yield and depart!
Not when success allures from distance!
What if perseverance pays off at last!
Another attempt deserves a try,
Perhaps, the best shot waiting to be freed!

I know, not often I say this to you
That I admire you the most,
Beyond any words, I can utter
Because dear, you are my true love!
Let this be our little secret
That I would like to spend,
Every waking moment with you
Beyond the slightest doubt, I know!
Cruel this world, keeping us away
Despite my 24by7 need for you,
Life is such, my darling,
A sip of you I crave all the time,
My hot simmering cup of tea
Stealing my taste buds always
A passion so deep you carve
And lost in your love,
More for you I crave!

A lifetime of wait
proved to be in vain,
When a Knight in shining armor
failed to appear,
And she learned to become the savior
for her own sake forever.

He promised, “I’ll be there for you, always!”
He convinced, “We’re soulmates forever!”
Turned out, he didn’t have a soul to share!
