This one goes out to all the dreamers at sea.. This life is only what you want it to be.
The Earth is put on holdThe world is standstill The streets are lifeless We have slowed down, for a while!The nature is recovering. Stray animals for once are breathing. There's no theft, robbery, rapeThere's no rush, no hustle and bustle We miss going to school and college. We miss working for long hours in the office. We miss the hectic schedule. Everything has been delayed, good and bad, it for sure will start again, it has to start again! Maybe. But,Is the virus a threat or a treatment?By Akankshya Mahapatra©asakanxa
While trying to be strong,He became my weakness. In search of light,I fell in love with his darkness. By Akankshya Mahapatra©asakanxa
She was winsome, she had scars. She was just like other girls,Smoking nirvana and seducing stars.By Akankshya Mahapatra©asakanxa
He is strong, no?He gets hurt, but he can't cry.He gets depressed, but he can't say.He never bleeds or feels period pains, But he holds an ocean of sorrow in his veins. He handles his girlfriend's mood swings,He fulfills his wife's cravings. He sacrifices his passion, for his family He is forced to do everything we want him to do only.Hey man! You can cry. You can say.You don't have to hide your emotions.No problem if noone notices you,Your broken dreams, your dedications.They are so busy talking about feminism, They often forget you.The world is so fake,They can't see the real you.In the name of equality, hate they pour, You're not less man, and we're not more.In every battle of life, you've fought like a warrior, Not being a feminist, man I know you're superior.By Akankshya Mahapatra©asakanxa
Rose and Thorn
She was a roseHe was the thorn,Rude but protecting her.Everytime someone came to flock, He showed his immense power.They stayed throughout the spring,They saw summer together. They danced in rain,They witnessed every weather. She was attractive red,He was a rebellious lover.He kept her safe in his arms,She was the one to give him shelter. They were so much in love,And promising to each otherWhen her petals started falling, The thorn stopped breathing forever.By Akankshya Mahapatra©asakanxa
Thousands of emotions Thousands of thoughts What would be his reaction after knowing,Whom she loved the most.There was a tiny life inside her wombDelicately blooming, unknown to the world.Her heart was on fire, shivering Was it a mistake or a blessing!Rubbing her hand on it, she whispered, "Will he ever accept you, oh lord!"She was numb, she was full of tears "I'm pregnant" she murmured. Calling her a whore, he yelled Everything seemed dark, her soul cried. The fetal was screaming too,Life ended here before living, it knew. Rest was unspoken, unbearable, disturbing, The unborn killed itself before dying. By Akankshya Mahapatra©asakanxa
He was a Summer day, she was the Winter night. Both together made the best twilight.By Akankshya Mahapatra©asakanxa
Oh My Rainbow!
You came from nowhereBecame the charm on my clouds They were so stubborn never letting me goYou proved how easy that sounds.I was a little unsure, I was scaredI was somehow legit cowardYou gave a hope, you fought You never left me unwanted and fired That Black shirt of yours gives me a temptation Smelling it like beyond seduction The way you put smile on my face,Noone could ever got stick to that action.The seven million colours you brought to life Have their impacts on each and every bit of time.Seeing you by my side is something I will always crave for,From where did you learn to love like this, mister!I'm a creep, I'm sometime too bad at keeping promisesI forget to say sorry, I make blemishes. You always manage to calm me no matter how hard it arises. I wonder life was like a mirage, dry and holding fake heavenThere was Sun. There was rain.But Oh my Rainbow, with you the leaves started to grow again.By Akankshya Mahapatra©asakanxa
