The ticking cursor

a poem by

Anuja Pandey

The ticking cursor irritates me, as if it’s teasing me.
Teasing me, staring at me, as if it doesn’t give a ****.
I kept looking back at it, asking him to shut up.

But my brain shuts and heart opens, trying to write all the shit that just happened.
Why can’t my thoughts process slow, slower than my hand move,
Why can’t my hands move faster as if it’s my mobile keypad.

Write, write, write and what not to write,
What if someone reads,
I kept stopping myself, whenever I felt it is just my belief.

Belief to fall in love and rise again or just keep drowning to the deepest shit.
My heart knew what I felt but my hands kept moving totally extremes.
As if my hands could think, of those unsaid flings.

Will it be fine?

a poem by

Kanish .

You may be beyond my imagining,
I wanna make my dream
of your, in any mean.
Your fantasies, your desires.
May be out of reach.
In spite, I wanna it be of mine.
I’ll fulfill. Will it be fine?

May have hesitation to say
You may counter my way
With trick ‘n’ play,
Will try to make,
you on mine track.
May feel imposing sometime.
I’ll negate. Will it be fine?

Always I’m there
When you’ll upset
Illogical jokes of mine
will try to flirt
and make you out.
Always ready,
with such foolish guts,
I’ll tease. Will it be fine?

To rule over my heart

a poem by

Amber Kumar

Her soft mocha skin, where glaciers slide,
her eyes with galaxies and nebulas within,
and her fingers orchestrating this heart of mine.

Her breaths like breezes adorn my rusty palace of tin,
her semblance, a canvas embedded with bubbly art fine.
The mountains and oceans are nothing but petty bumps and puddles compared to her,
for she is above all and everything,
seraphic deity, celestial delicacy,
a lady of unmatched beauty,
a girl with diamonds in her hair,
a lass with sempiternal dusk in her stare,
a fox with such tempting snares,
The only Queen to rule over my heart.

Her voice melts in my ears,
and echoes in my vessels forever.
My throat burns up with words,
words wanting to line themselves in front of her eyes.

You shall hear my pleas through the dusty winds and chirpy birds,
through shimmering leaves and crackling fires,
through chiming icicles and the clearest crystals.

For I have spoken, and I have spoken enough,
I would rather you look than hear,
for you see dear one,
we share the same sky and stars,
the same sun and moon,
that like mirrors shall reflect us from one place to another,
and I wish to see your likeness through them forever,
so cherish these few things we have in common,
for the differences are endless, and my dried up heart,
now lifeless.

Love at School

a poem by

Rajneesh Yadav

It was the first day of my new school
That day I was looking so stupid

As I was alone and strange
She came to me and sat on my bench

Then she introduced herself and asked my name
But that moment I was feeling ashamed

It was the first time when I sat with a girl
And her beauty made my mind whirl

Such a beauty I hadn’t ever seen
She looked just like a queen

I kept staring at her
Listening all her talks
How cute she looked while cracking jokes

Her smile was a God’s boon
Her face glowed just like moon

No one can explain her beauty in words
Her voice seemed to me like chirping of birds

Everyday I noticed each of her reaction
From her smile to cry
And the things which made her shy

Soon I became a diehard fan of her
My heart started to love everything about her

Then a day came when I fell in love with her
I started to dream day and night of only her

To sit with her
I knowingly used to forget all my books
To impress her, I started to better my looks

As she looked just like a princess
So to look like a prince, I used to wear a nice dress

In her love I was falling and falling day by day
To see her once, I didn’t miss the school, a single day

Whenever I missed her, I used to close my eyes
Then she would come in my dreams and kiss me twice

Her beauty made me intoxicated
Whenever I saw her
My heart started to beat at the speed of a rocket

My love for her was touching the sky
After school, I always followed her just like a spy

Now a single minute was not spent without her
My eyes always remained curious to see her

Every minute seemed to be a day in her absence
How happy I felt in her presence

It was becoming difficult to survive without her
Then the day came when in front of all
I finally purposed to her
Down on my knees and with a rose in my hand
I said “I love you so much. Will you be my girlfriend.”

Then she came in the pose as I was
Smiled and took that rose

Suddenly she hugged me and started to weep loud
Then she said “I love you too.” in front of the crowd

Love at First Sight

a poem by

Rajneesh Yadav

When I met you for the first time I got goosebumps
That moment I found myself dumb
My eyes were amazed and my heart was beating fast
Your beauty made my mind blast
Your blue eyes hypnotised me
Your blond hair mesmerised me
I lost my balance after watching your beautiful face
I became a fan of your grace
You are an angel who is heaven sent
Whenever I see you, your beauty makes me faint
Whether it is day or night, I see you in my dreams
Now only your name flows in my blood streams
I have fallen in love with you
Everywhere I see image of you
It seems that you are down to the earth only for me
Therefore I thank God for sending such a gift for me
It has been a knack of you
My day doesn’t start until I see you
My each second is spent thinking about you
Whole time, my eyes are curious to see you
My nights are spent in desolation
I feel tense due to our seperation
But whenever I miss you I just close my eyes
And memorise your cute face
Me and my heart are waiting for your embrace
Now there is only one dream that you become all mine
My heart is just waiting for your sign

Living in your Memory

a poem by

Rajneesh Yadav

All night I keep staring at the ceiling alone
How can I explain, what I am feeling, since you have gone
Your memories are always in my mind
Which let me to live a life like blind
My mind tried to forget you
But my heart never dared to do so
I miss those moments we spent together
I miss that place we roamed together
I miss that day when for the first time you kissed me
I miss that moment when you gave your first hug to me
On bed, I dream only about you
I cuddle my pillow as if it is you
I always keep your photo with me
So that I can ask “what was my fault?”
It brings tears in my eyes
When I remember the moment you left me giving a taunt
Days are spent in your memories
But the nights are sleepless
My love for you has became endless
Living in your memories give me a lot of sorrow
But these are the only things which carries me to another tomorrow
My heart loved you and will always love you
He doesn’t want anyone in my life except you

She is My Love

a poem by

Rajneesh Yadav

On the paper of love
With the pen of heart
I wrote a thousand times that she is my love

She is just like the shining moon
Perhaps she is the only God’s great boon

Her face glows like a beautiful lotus
When she sits near me, her eyes my focus

How beautiful are her two little eyes
They make her more pretty whenever she eyes

Her glossy lips make me crazy
Her cheeks are beautiful just like daisy

She looks gorgeous when she blush
She is my first and final crush

She is one of the world’s great wonders
Without her I am just like rain without thunders

She has become my life and my breath
My love will never end until my death

My eyes are always curious to meet her
My day doesn’t start until I see her

All the day I weep in front of her pic
Day I don’t see her, I feel sick

Just looking into her eyes
I promise again and again

“I will be your umbrella
whether it is Sun or rain”

Dreaming of You

a poem by

Rajneesh Yadav

I used to sit on top of the roof
Looking up at the sky full of stars
I used to stand in my balcony
Staring at the beautiful moon
I used to lose myself in dreams of you
And wish if you were with me
Sitting just by my side with your arms around me
Your smile, your talk and your soft touch
Really I miss all very much
I close my eyes
Picturing our first meet
The moment that stopped my heartbeat
A smile appears on my face
When I remember your embrace
I use to cuddle my pillow
Acting as if it is you
My nights are spent in your memories
You come in my dreams just like fairies
Now I can’t wait anymore for you
I want to spend my whole life with you
I want my day to start with your kiss and end with your hug
I wish my nights are spent in your arms under a single rug

Beloved

a poem by

Shubhanshu Shrivastava

Time was floating as swift as lightening,
No melody of love entered my mind,
Until I met you, my love,
It was frightening, of the unholy past I left behind.

Your face I found wherever I was,
In my deepest dreams or the day ‘twas,
Long lost and awaiting, amazed I found,
My destiny in you, to you I am bound.
I was always divided, hollow and grave,
Feeling, half alive and half below the ground, engraved.
In that stoic silence you came to me,
Freeing from those broken chains that were meant to be,
My stony heart of the vehement cold, incessant,
Found your warmth, melting and repentant.
I look back at the recent times that passed,
Breathing, thinking of you persistent, starved,
Filling my heart with passion, and love,
To the drowning ecstasy of unspoken words.
Hence I say it, give you my word,
That I would love thee forever, O beloved.

Heaven, hear me out please!

a poem by

Syethemba_Dizzmar Thwala

I don’t want to keep on crying
And ask myself what are doing
And why you keep on hurting me
Because I can’t fight back

And you won’t even bring them back
Because of you, they lashed out
And left me with thousands of questions
God why are doing this to me
Why do I have to go through these things

Do you feel happy when you see my sorrows?
Firstly, you took my dad from me
When he has planned my tomorrow
Now my life is in dark and now I can’t see
The future in front of me

And to you dad wherever you are
Please know that your words are still playing in my mind
That I have to build you a big house near your kraal
When I finish school and start working
But for now please know that I’m still blind

Because my life is still in the eyes of a world like a rally
But I can vow to you that I will still push
And I will do all in my power to find a way
Of fulfilling the promise I made one day

But Lord what wrong have I really done
You didn’t take dad only but even my mom
And my cousin, and now I can’t even call
Them because they are no longer with me physically
But spiritually they are still with me

Tell them that I miss them
Please deliver my kiss to them
And tell them that I miss them
Even though I’m heart broken
Because you took all my joy

And now I see that I’m talking to myself because you avoid me
I need someone to touch me
Make me not miss them this much
Heaven hear me out please
Before my heart catches flue and freeze

Paradise Express

a poem by

Krishnasish Jana

I have heard of a place that’s not on maps
A place where there’s no room for lies
Where mornings and nights never make the kiss
Where every form of life is able, is wise

Where you’ll find only faces and never a mask
Where curiosity is never afraid to think and ask
Where the one true religion has always been love
Where the endless sky is always blue above
Where the birds never know the fatigue of flight
Where the nights stand dauntless in the stars’ light
Where no child is killed before even she’s born
Where no heart is broken and no skin torn
Where nobody knows the art of building a wall
Where there is always a hand when you fall
Where lilies dance with a newfound zest
Where crows and doves share the same nest
Where the river quenches the thirst of all
Where a horse runs free and is never in a stall
Where the moon’s always shy and the sun bright
Where you’ll never have to fight for what’s right
Where benevolence is, by all, considered divine
Where dreams and fears are separated by a line
Where every empty soul always gets fed
Where there’s always a smile after every tear’s shed

I have heard of this place, and of a train that runs
Through its heart; and I can hear the summons
And since it’s dark, my end drawing nigh
I would love to be there, and I would love to fly

Butterfly flies away

a poem by

Oriada Dajko

Butterfly as a whisper comes around
for a little child happiness is found,
he sees a colorful art of life.
She stays near the child
not afraid of being burnt
by the desire.
Is it a candle or a child?
Secondly, she will be burned.
Firstly, she will be admired.
She makes him feel the magic
and then she wants to fly away.
A child can’t wait
that hours become days
and butterfly returns again.
He will love only for today!
Once she will fly away,
the beauty in his eyes will be lost.
Soon he will learn that
beautiful creatures can’t be admired
when they stay under chains.

The Fortune Cookie

a poem by

Poumita Paul

Cents crawled over Baga
The fourteenth from right
First from me
White tarpaulin flew over
Dispair of the vend’s derm
Adorning the last few cookies
Wind chimes tickled an anvil
Bucks for the Fortune Cookie
Honey brown teint glued my glasses
Bare eyes longed to rest
Lips to feel the first kiss
The rough skin held my hands
Lips inches apart
Ouch! That hurts!

Tongue blood bathed
And me noticed its opening
Unchaste! Winking through the hoods!
Its demonic beam savouring it all
Akin the day sweet chirps tooled it
Tearing its hem with the peak
I stumbled, fings escaped
The cookie embraced the sea
Glasses reflected the dirty dance
Gusts sanding my tearfeds
Brought in a thump
Across the left blush

The silver foil read
NOT YOUR STORY.

The Tempest

a poem by

Swati Krishna

I weep as I feel the tempest rage
All bleak and dark and ever reaching
The numbness in me spreads
As you go far beyond my reach

It’s dark and forbidding, my love
A guillotine hangs upon my neck
Your smile erases the pain by bit
Your absence is just keenly felt

It hurts my love, where do I start
I can’t see the light anymore
I wish to scar and rage and die
But the numbness burns more than scars

I wish you were beside me now
I imagine the whispered comforts
I cry myself to the lull of sleep
You seem so far and far out of reach

I cannot take it anymore my love
You’re not here and I can’t take it no more
My demons drown me and I lose my breath
Even as I die I think of you

I think of your laughter and your gentle hands
I do not have the right to think of them
And yet I want now more than ever
In the crowding darkness I float away

I am next to you in this little peace of heaven
We carve for ourselves our own my paradise
Mine is as I listen to your words
Your cadence and laughter and your hesitance

I am a sinner and a broken one
God and Devil exist in my head
They wage their wars and I feel my blood
Upon my dying breath I weep
