Drifting Contemplations: My Wishes-You (micropoetry)

Wishes,dreams,hopes that’s what this season is all about,I find myself wishing for more love and love to stay and grow,I know there are many people in the world who must be wishing for love to walk into their lives,hoping that this year would change everything,I was a lifetime ago in the same place myself,desperately wishing for love to take the cold away and fill my world with warmth,so I truly know how lonely this time of the year can feel if you don’t have someone special to spend time with,so here I wrote something keeping that in mind…


If I had wishes
only few…
darling…
I’d still blow
each one on you

‘Tis the time of the year
when everyone’s generous…
you too darling be benevolent
and make your much awaited appearance…
fill my holidays with the warmth
of your precious presence…
light my world with hope
that’ll last till the year next…
please walk through that door
and sprinkle stardust on my gloomy days…
wrap my life with the
ribbon of galaxies that is your caress…
if you cannot stay
then grant me death in your tranquil embrace…
that too will be a wish come true…
the sweetest end

Drifting Contemplations : Xmas (micropoetry)

Xmas is a beautiful time even to someone like me who doesn’t celebrate it,it’s beautiful because of the many movies and the holiday cheer and the songs,childhood memories of beautiful friends and their wonderful families sharing their cakes and cookies with us.My mind is in sync with the West so I relate so much and this time of the year doesn’t feel any less special to me than to the characters of the numerous Christmas holiday movies that I watch tucked under a blanket,my ultimate happy time.
The following micropoems/quotes were written especially for this season because this time of the year everyone seems to be wishing for something or the other,mostly for love,I find myself wishing for summer,especially summer in Japan,now that would be the best gift ever…

If celebrating Xmas
would bring you…
I would celebrate
Xmas too

Drifting Contemplations: Remainders (micropoetry)

Remainders were written for word prompts but these drifting contemplations when I read a few days later after posting felt like my feelings,I have so many people I have lost and so many memories which are adamant don’t leave with the people they were made with,it’s ridiculous.I hate how these remainders of people,of relationships,of friendships get embedded deep and hurt so much…do you wonder why we store memories,why we simply cannot erase them like we erase files,it would be so much easier to breathe,but then there would be no poetry I guess,so it’s fine as long as they serve me…


I ran my fingers through
memories of you…
they ended up bleeding…
…you cut…
still

tonight
I’m throwing myself
into the fire…
hoping to burn with me
splinters of you
that are embedded in my soul…

I hope still…
that burning
will bring some light…
just…
maybe…
this darkness
that resides in my soul
since you left…
will be reduced to ashes

I have to say that though the poems above were written for wordprompts there is a little of me in those lines,my heart bleeds and memories bring grief,to know more,to read something personal about me please click here. Thank you.

*The first poem above was featured in a community on Instagram that goes by the name HerHeartPoetry,they have a massive following of 10.2k,and to have my poem featured as work of the day felt pretty awesome then and below is the screenshot(sorry for gloating) in case you were curious…

The Moon’s Phases-My Theory (poem)

The Moon’s phases are a result of…well there’s a scientific theory which is kind of boring and not so lovely,so here I write about a possibility(a fact in my head though)…don’t you feel like the moon breathes,sighs,loves and drowns in sorrow,lights up in love,I feel so,yes,I know that maybe I cannot get away from feeling that way if I let everyone onto how I feel about things but I can always write about it,right?
So,this is my theory on why I think the moon phases,yes,absolutely,the whole world revolves around me,so obviously the moon’s phases too have to do something with me and my life,I believe that(giggles),you should too…repeat after me…the whole world revolves around me(chuckles)…well done,now believe it…


Every once in a while
the moon burns itself out…
fiercely…
it’s ashes dissipate…
it’s reduced to dust…
all because of envy…
it cannot comprehend
but also cannot deny…
that none can love it
more than I love your
dazzling glistening eyes…
it takes a while…
for it to recover…
to collect itself again
from across space…
and this charade…
the rest of the
earth’s inhabitants…
call the moon’s phases

Drifting Contemplations: Autumn,Words And Thoughts (micropoetry)

Autumn depending on our perspectives can be both a beginning or an end,to me it is an end,an end to Summer…heart-breaking,here I wrote about autumn,words and thoughts,death and departure,promises of eternal love…eternal remembrance…eternal mourning…

ap2
fall for me like autumn leaves…
let go and be mine…
I know you fear that darkness
will dawn on love…
but I promise I won’t let us fade…
our love will always wear a burning red…
for your name’s forever engraved
on the folds of my mind…

I’ll keep our intimacies…
shared words…
thoughts and memories
in between fragrant pages…
eternally safe from erosion
by the hands of time

Autumn bore the brunt of a broken heart…
when Summer faded away ruthlessly
stealing even it’s words and thoughts…
it bled saffron and lost all it’s colours…
whilst mourning the death of love…
gradually slipped into winter…
turning cold and pale…
buried itself under
it’s own shadow and frozen snow…
choking to death
it’s dreams and existence…
alas…no spring visited it again…
only endless rain…
…only endless rain
