It’s Sweet and Blissful

We’re driving towards my native place in Karnataka and dad’s saying something to my brother about where to stop for petrol… I try to pay attention, but can’t I realise I don’t have to worry about it. My eyes are doing that slow-mo opening and closing thing, and I’m falling asleep I can feel morning…

To The Girl in 9th Standard

Hang in there. You’re destined for greater things. Bigger and better things. And these problems of yours will seem small. Yes, darling, they do seem to encompass your whole life right now. As if your life depends on being friends with the cool group. As if there’s definitely something wrong with you because the pretty…

Love

A guy Who’s love is sincere Real Who’s cheeks are gruff with stubble, that add to his sex appeal But he’s as sensitive from the inside as much he’s tough on the outside Who’s a genuine person with genuine emotions With eyes that speak volumes When those eyes will look into mine, I’ll know it’s…

That Place

To a place where There are no expectations No arguments No sadness No bitterness To a place leading to the warm sun Where the yellow light outside will have the power to seep in your soul And brighten it from within Where the light breeze and shining sun will wash away all the sorrows All…

What’s the aim, really?

We think We wonder We worry We overthink We try not to think And we think about that, too. All, for what? What are we trying to achieve, here? Happiness? Peace? Contentment? In the race to find it, Do we realise the race is never going to end? That there’s no winner or loser in…

A Broken Smile

I wish my heart was stronger. I wish I wouldn’t get hurt so easily. I wish my brain didn’t work overtime. I wish I didn’t become an emotional wreck so often. I wish I didn’t get attached to people. I wish I didn’t have to learn how to smile when I don’t want to. But…

I Am Me.

I am me. Whatever you do or say Isn’t going to change How I feel About things. You try to dominate me To convince me To persuade me To do things I don’t want to. It isn’t going to work. It isn’t going to change my views, My ideas. I am me. And I like…

City Bred Flowers

I think we all are like city bred flowers. Yes, they are beautiful. But they¬† are limited. To a windowsill. Whereas we are limited by our own ideas. Our materialism. Our egos. Our anger. Yes, we are beautiful. Just like city bred flowers are. But we are limited. By our own ideas. And that’s the…

The Ordinary Things

Today I feel happy. So contented with myself That the ordinary things seem extraordinary to me. The headlights of the cars on the opposite side of the road Make me feel as if thousands of spotlights are trained upon me. And the brightness outside is just a reflection of the brightness inside. Inside me. Inside…

My little brother

Brothers are irritating. But I still wrote a poem for my brother. No, not ‘just like that’. It was his birthday, and birthdays make me super emotional. This was the outcome of my outbreak of affection: My little brother Although you are not little anymore, You’ll always be little in my mind and heart. You’ll…

The girl I met

Since I don’t feel like writing (or doing anything else, for that matter), I thought I’ll post something I’d written in the past. This is a poem for my friend who was going through a hard time: There’s a girl I met. A crazy fan of Harry potter and confessions of a shopaholic. Never really…

I’m leaving.

Today I feel nothing. I don’t know whether I’m capable of even feeling anything. I just want to drown away into nothingness, and be there. Forever. I never want to come up. Because that would mean caring, loving, arguing, crying, hating. I’m running away Leaving my inconclusive thoughts Leaving all the arguments in my head…
