Wasted Dreams



They get wasted
Every single day..
Another one is shattered
When I wake up to a new morning

I muster up courage
To sleep another night
In hope of
Waking to a fresh dawn
To keep my dream alive..

Dreams are dreams
For a reason..
Seldom they come true
No matter how strong they are
Tomorrow their death is due..

Still I foster a new one
Every single day..
Waiting for them to bear wings
And to see them fly high !

Lost soul

He was a loser
The big one I would say
He lost me , the most precious one
Who was in his life to stay.

Never once he tried
Even if I cried
The soul in me had died
Right there it lied
Still never once he tried

It hurt to see him smile
As The smile was not for me
It hurt to see him happy
Neither a part was I

Love they say is weird
To be happy for the other
To sacrifice like a mother
I love but I am selfish
As I love like no other.

Untamed emotions

When you come down the stairs
Wearing my favorite shirt
Yes, the maroon one
It doesn't matter if you don't know
It doesn't matter if you are oblivious
To my glance..

You come nearer
And my heart starts to pound
Fast and then really fast
I wondered
What would you say
If I take your name and call you near?!

Dry were my lips, blank went the mind
Standing like a statue ,I look at your eyes
I blurted out your name and stopped midway
To secure the feelings in the vault
I have kept in for long..

You opened your lips, sensuous and wet
All I could do is to watch
Without hearing a single word
Watching you speak is a pleasure
And doesn't come too often

You talk with your head tilted
and oh! that expression of 'just about to smile'
You sweep me off my feet
and I wish the moment would freeze!

The moment didn't pay any heed
To my urge and pleading
It just passed and you walked away
Leaving me alone
With the memories
That bewildered me a moment ago..

Let's together say NO!







Yes, we are stay at home moms
Our day passes, sometimes..
Staring at the blank white wall
And the rotating ceiling fan

In our ever complex brain
Tangles of thoughts dance around
As If they have promised
Never to keep us bored

At the end of the day
We hear a question as usual
What have you done during the whole time?!
Our mouths freeze
Tongues come to a halt
Not able to utter a single word
We stare blank at our hubbys' faces

Yes, We are stay at home moms
We cook, we feed, we teach our kids
We clean , we watch TV and sometimes moan alone ;)
We read, we sew, and that coffee we brew
Yet, we have nothing to say
and they have nothing to hear

At the end of the day, all think
We don't do anything at all !
is it fair you say?
The garden says - No! Our pet says - No!
The crafts say - No ! and we together say - NO!

In the pursuit of happiness

I searched to and fro
For a bright glowing smile :)
Lo and behold ! The search was so long :'(
and lost my smile somewhere in the way..

If you ever see a curve
Bent upwards and lying on the road
Make sure to return it to me
and copy it if you can..:)

Doesn't cost a penny make others smile
And you know what ?!
When that smile smiles back at you
you get the infection and
It ends up with you !!

I thought of that curve
As I saw some worried faces :(
So busy and worried they were
As they lost their smiles on the way. :(

We all have one of these curves
But seldom bend it upwards
and choose to keep them straight :-|
Or even rugged and downwards.. :-< 

When I am writing all these lines
A smile came up and said Hi !
and I know I am sounding stupid
But I know it made you smile :)

Untamed Emotions..

He was coming down the stairs wearing that maroon shirt, yes my favorite one. Well, he is oblivious to that. He came nearer and my heart was pounding fast and I was wondering whether to call him or not. Then my mouth hypnotically called out his name, ...and he stopped and turned to me. My heart was beating so fast and loud, I was afraid everyone near would hear that. My mouth went dry and for a moment I was blank and stood like a living statue. I blurted out mechanically the whole thing that I had memorised to tell, because I needed to keep talking without going blank midway.Afterall, the feelings I have hid so securely must remain in the vault. Then he started replying and you know what I was not listening to a single word.
Watching him speak was a pleasure . With his head tilted a little and wearing his usual 'just about to smile' expression, he kept on talking looking at me and I was wishing that moment would freeze right there . But that moment didn't pay any heed to my pleading, it passed and he walked away leaving me alone to rewind the memories which bewildered me a moment ago.

Actors

In the theatre of life
We all are actors..playing our parts
Some scripts lie unfinished
Even some tales untold

All the way to the end
Till the play does finish
Dancing to the tunes of others
We find the real us perish
