Dreams

a poem by

Sukhbir Singh

A Human can’t fulfill all his Dreams
In his life, he always have some Dreams
He works hard to fulfill these wishes
And he has succeeded to fulfill his dreams
But in every success
His wishes have also increased
If a human will become
Rich person of the world
Yet, his wishes will not be fulfilled
This is the truth of human life

Dream

a poem by

Skeleton Prince

You were here next to me.
Flat on the floor we lay and listened to some “Indie songs”.
The floor grew flowers and you pluck some for me.
You brought your ear close to my heart and it skipped a beat.
I, blinded your eyes with my hands and whispered in your ears
Which made you smile.
My finger burnt at the tip of the burning cigarette
And I, woke up, it was all a “Dream”.

Dreams

a poem by

Sreelakshmi K R

In between the past that are being yesterdays
And the future that carries the burden of hope,
I sewed the truth of present.
I knew earlier that this would happen.
The dreariness realized during the day.
The restlessness realized during the night.
Unexplained! You filled the cosmos.
Even if there are many colors,
For my fiery love,
For my revolutionary vigor and
For the blood I scattered,
You gave red gulmohars.
And in the glimpse of that memory, I live.
For my uncharted wanderings,
There is no beginning and end without you.
In the parade of failures; I, me, myself being the truth,
I’m once again searching for the enigma that you are.

A bad dream

a poem by

Surbhi Chauhan

In the room fraught with darkness
Some white shadows appeared
Glared at me with smirkle smile
Buzzing noises filled my ears
With throbbed heart I laid in despair
Buried my face in the blanket
But who could stop those shadows to invade
With silent scream my body shook in fear
As I woke up everything disappeared

Enslaved

a poem by

Jayant Kashyap

Oh! Dreams, they kill me,
I feel like dried, and pressed thereafter,
To be stacked in some corner, or
To be thrown in some shattered pile;
I feel like being an object-
Enslaved!
And these inanimate creations,
Of my mind, holding my reins.

Dreaming!

a poem by

Deepak Banjare

Dreaming of light like, illustrating yours crystal eyes;
Like never I have done, under the bed-sheets of curtain side;
Hiding my self, when I hear your sound at my doom side;
Coming too my home I’m sleeping on that time;
Wake me up from dreams, where we travel all the sides;

Morning at the road walking along besides;
End at the mall party with you late night;
A chain bangle on right, bluish watch at left side;
Holding your hand sometimes like “always said, be my side”;
I remember only this, seen only at your eyes;
At the mid of day I have only yours crazy smiles;

Sparkling my night, car ones-headlight doesn’t work that time;
Some selfies, coming at the driving side;
So so so so… closer;
I can’t focus at your lips white strips;
I wanna kisss, like I have a pervert side;

Wake me up;
Same day, Same time;
Lets do it all again;
Like it always start with yours crazy smile…

Union

a poem by

Sanal Kumar

A union I never realised
Meeting I never forsaw
The place I never went
A dream I never dreamt

Futile

a poem by

Sunil Rajagopal

I did not wait for such a morning
whose dawn the darkness stole;
Burning with lies and yearning,
Truths, bitter and never whole.

I did not wish for such a night
watched by empty grey skies;
Even fancy dare not take flight,
this world is but shadow and guise.

I did not seek such hefty dreams,
Enough to sink this trivial life;
Like the sun caught in streams,
blown to bits by a breezy knife.

For none of this did I ever ask-
Only, a veil to shelter under,
Only, a beacon in the dark,
Only, to be filled by wonder.

An Unknown Dreamer

a poem by

Anu Pillai

An unknown dreamer comes on my way I know not who he is,
But he gives me a fragrance of love that never goes away from me,
And this unknown dreamer puts a sweet beam of melody in my heart,
Never to let me forget his presence in my life,
Even if a distance is there between two hearts.

The enchanting enigma

a poem by

Kalyani Dash

I turned my gaze around
as the last bus to my home has left.
My breath was heavy
my heart was pounding
and I stood there with my parasol,
totally exhausted.
That was when my heart skipped a beat
beneath a banyan tree
he was sitting, totally drenched,
on his seat.
His shirt was sticking to his body
hung on the tips of his hair,
were tiny little raindrops,
which paused on his eyelashes
and rapidly rolled down his nose
and further down his neck
he had done nothing to me
yet, I was hypnotized.
He broke the spell and brought me into reality
as he looked at me, and…
our eyes met
that I realised.
His big dark eyes
as black as the thundering clouds
I wanted to be lost
deep, deep, deep in his eyes
Ah! I wish I could
I turned my eyes off him
so did he
too clumsy to express one another’s feelings
too shy to look into each other’s eyes
we both were silent
the only noise was the splattering of rain
strange sensation it was
Perhaps the aura of love.
I turned back
ready to depart
with a heavy heart
desperately he turned towards me
under the gloomy moon of that rain,
slowly… our eyes met again.
He smiled at me
was I supposed to be shocked?
Or blush?
Or smile back?
I didn’t know
but that warm smile stopped my heart
I do know
the cool breeze went past by me
slightly blowing my hair
but I…
I felt a warmth
a smooth warmth
and what was it, I don’t care.
The rain had stopped
the bus arrived
I got into the bus
but, my eyes were fixed on him
until the last inch of him
disappeared from my sight
I woke up from my dream
looked at the clock: 8 AM already???!!!
Damn!!!
I rushed to the school like a mad man
forcing my way out
through the crowd
I noticed a familiar figure
he turned around,
looked at me
and smiled.
My heart ached in a sweet pain
as…
our eyes met again.

Loneliness

a poem by

Anu Pillai

I cry, admit my lonely thinking of my dark fate
I have no one other than my loneliness
Which makes me faint to go into my sweet dreams

If it is possible…

a poem by

Shivaji Pandhare

Bored with harassment of rats
Brought a cat home as a pet
After few days of her night vigilance
We slept without a worry

But one day the cat drank the milk
And got rewarded by beating
Next morning we kept the milk in a saucer before her
Later she used to it.
Rats rattling stopped.
After a month
We found rats slept near the cat
Thought the rat may be dead
About to shake them with a broom
But stopped and took photo of them
To post it on facebook

Worried that past days would come again,
If this coalition is true.
How this miracle happened
With no discussion, no summit, no protocol, no mandate
You don’t know what horrible days would come again!

Fortunately rats ran away
Took the cat by the ears
To throw away on dumping ground.

I sent message to my friend
That I miss today, one miracle of love
Which man could never do in his life

Dreams

a poem by

Sayali Joshi

Dreams are the ones which we all see
Try to fulfill it, using efforts as a master key

Not all dreams will get fulfilled
But that dosen’t mean, it’s your defeat

See a dream with a positive thought
Make it your new aim and give your best shot

Untamed

a poem by

Ashwin Kumar T

I am floating away,
With nothing at stake,
My thoughts disappearing,
Like the ripples in this lake.

I have been lost for a long time,
Now I am going to find myself again,
These birds fly alongside me,
And I become with the wild, untamed.

I saw a pleasant dream!!

a poem by

Manoj R Lulla

Yes I saw a pleasant dream,
We were together and out of joy I was to scream,
You looked in my eyes and I, in yours,
We dint even notice around us the crowd and chaos,
Between ourselves we were fully engrossed…

Your sweet scent took me on cloud number nine,
Intoxicated me, without whisky or wine,
I felt so fresh and everything seemed so fine,
That I couldn’t resist but ask you out to dine…

The candle lit the table and my desires,
Pretending to be cool, but within me there was a fire,
I held your hand close to my heart,
And you realised whose name in each of its beat it was…

“Lucky Me!”, I thought to myself,
To take things further, I prayed to God for his Help,
We got close enough to hug each other…
And “Wake up you moron, you’re late!!”, shouted my mother…
Yes indeed I saw a pleasant dream!!!
