The sunshine girl

Never preferred raindrops, I love sunshine,

Brightness is my thing, while drizzle is yours-

You like the pitter-patter of the raindrops,

My love for a noiseless sunny day is well known,

When I was finding a way to balk and stop,

Proceeding after the first meeting was you;

Sugar and spice is what makes us,

Taking the steps forward, we will be trusting faith

The memories are ones keeping me on track now.



Extendability, stability, durability;

Features which make a good battery,

What if it doesn’t have those?

Maze of Minotaur

Time being a challenge, running around the maze

How difficult must it be for me to escape it,

I have been trying and yet there’s always an obstacle,

Working up my strength, my sanity-

A stable rock you have been for me,

Feeding my mind with positivity and solutions,

“I am there ” is like your signature in my conscious,

How did we come to this? I don’t know

I am sure, your love will make me love you.


You are odd and I still stand by you,

Unromantic that you are, you don’t sympathise

No pity case for me, no caring sharing words-

I hit my head and you turn it to humor,

You don’t let me cry though, not offering shoulders-

When I feel you don’t love, it’s then I realise.

Being challenged is what I love, not being pitied

Tantrums are not my style, it is you who can,

You love me the best you can, that’s what I accept .

You taught me

Smiling and laughing not my best attributes,

Keeping calm and cool was still unlearned,

Indifference and apathy were my best weapons,

Yet all these dissolved when you came,

You taught me to face the world with a smile;

Niggling and grumbling wouldn’t get me anywhere,

Did I realise the great fall then? No,

You were calm while I seethed with anger,

You smiled while I smirked,

You were my peace, my trust, my sole,

My mind being its own master,

An angel could never be my soul,

I sought the easier way out, running far

Lingering would tell me the truth,

Patience was never my element,

Yet you cared and shared with me,

Deeper did I fall, when I knew your smile,

Could follow your smell and shadow,

Yet you asked me made stop mid-path;

Smiling you gave our angel, a blush like yours-

You were not beholden, yet you let me hold,

Our angel is now my calm and peace,

Makes me smile and laugh, just like once did.

After all these years

Clarifying yourself, promised to be there,

Insanity, people would say,

But I believed in you.

Change in occupation, do you call that mature?

You know not the value of priority,

Something bound to keep you stable-

Yet that is the one lacking,

Perhaps life did turn better,

Hence erasing you from my life.


On a bright summer evening, your eyes crossed mine,

Your smile so addictive, made me turn up my lips-

How did make my cold heart burn in fire?

Was it your care for me? Or subservient desire.

You knew I am an indifferent, yet you chose to laugh,

May be that was my undoing, the uncertainties melted away.
