At the dinner table

“Well you didn’t have to wait up for me “, he pulled out a chair and sat next to her, ” you could have done your dinner earlier”.

“I didn’t” she shook her head , ” I am sitting here to give you company”.

She then served him rotis and curry.

” I know you don’t like eating alone”, she informed him.

He gave a lopsided grin at that.

In my dreams

You were the one, haunting my dream

I couldn’t just wake up and scream;

Identity of yours might take you away

But you would invade my mind anyway,

For them a decision must not be rushed

After all only a flower that I’m , meant to be crushed.

Conscience and consent, may not find a voice

Yet it is their way to me, I might not have a choice.

Culture we say shapes us and makes a man,

Can our culture be blamed, for an act so inhuman?

Reverberating

A sensation of going back and forth,

For as long as I remember,

Being so close to the top yet , very far from it;

I can’t exactly fathom the reasons,

By now I know the pain and can bear it without shame.

The pain of working hard,

It’s the pain of giving my best,

Where no stone was to be unturned.

The mind still doesn’t listen,

It plays the game of expectation.

And I always lose in the end.

Connection

I am not sure if it is right,

With little connection between us

Hardly can I show my empathy;

And I don’t even know when it happened.

When you lost the touch that could create tingles,

Yet the last string might be enough to pull us back.

We get by

Yes you and me , get by

Easily it seems, we don’t have to try

Exchanging ideas , we reveal the truth, not shy

The world might say things, making me cry

But you are my strength , won’t let me die

Yes we do get by.

Souless

They told me to cry, I couldn’t

They said you will never be back,

I tried but couldn’t feel,

Was my mind so strong, not letting me break,

Anticipation perhaps is my answer,

My soul was already lost, when you were done

I knew you wouldn’t be back,

So I let my soul free to roam with you.

I know you were there

Every moment, I turned my back

Dark alleys and rusty buildings adored my sight,

I could feel someone close to me,

But my eyes chose not to see

How long did you keep me company I don’t know,

The faint cologne was unmistakably your love to show;

I know you were there ever moment;

To know I was safe , not being poisoned.

Come back

Well this is a shout out for my own story Harappa’s lost seal. Two years back I wrote it and now I am reconstructing it with more details on Wattpad. I am not sure if anyone of you are wattapaders here, you can even check out the link through browsers.

If you really want to visit the prehistoric era of Indus Valley, then check it out. Lol it seems like I’m pleading. I guess I’m doing that. But I really need your help there.

Please don’t just like it for the sake of liking, check it out.
