    Sometimes you just stumble upon some lines that are so beautiful that you just can't stop falling in love with it. Thank you maa for naming me Shubhra, I never knew something so beautiful could be written by using this word.

    GOLDEN BLACK

    The sun shone so bright,
    Temporarily blinding me,
    With false illusions of a better day
    A golden non existent straw
    Which I grasp at, in vain
    From my maelstrom of blackness
    When I finally give up and let it go,
    The sun shines again,
    And like the gullible fool that I am,
    I dare hope again
    For my illusion of a sunshine,
    Lured into a vicious cycle
    Of craving and crushing

    Life's loveliness...

    The golden beam of sun
    Is well felt only twice...
    Just like the creature called 'human'
    Is well learnt only twice...
    When it starts shining
    And once when it drowns into darkness!

    BROKEN

    Strangely beautiful they are,
    Broken pieces
    With the lights bending through,
    Captivating eyes
    Shimmering in the darkness
    Strangely beautiful they are,
    Broken pieces
    With edges sharp as glowing lines
    Touch them, and they cut
    As ruthless as their shattered thoughts
    As heartless as their crumbled emotions
    Touch them, and they cut
    And bleed you out, like their crushed heart

    REFLECTION

    I see love in
    Your glassy eyes,
    When they stare into mine
    A reflection, of my foolish love
    In your insentient apathy

    LOCKED

    When I dab at my eyes,
    Their ghosts stare back at me from the whiteness;
    Weeping the tears that I refused
    Accusing me,
    From behind their smudged kohl lines

    BROKEN WATCH

    The heart meets its reflection
    On the broken face of glass,
    Reminiscing the times
    Tear tracks and sharp lines
    Never marred its perfection

    INFINITY

    The first time I met you
    I was a black hole,
    Squeezing my self out of myself
    Every waking hour
    A snake gobbling up its own tail
    A vicious circle
    A never ending chasm of unrest

    The first time I met you
    You were the sunshine
    A brimming pot of golden light
    A meadow of joy,
    A beacon for my flickering hope

    You fed the insatiable black hole
    With your unending light
    Even when light from darkness
    Never did rise

    You were the tranquil lake to my waves
    Absorbing them all
    Into glistening ripples
    You rekindled the fire within me
    In the eye of my cyclonic self

    The last time I saw you
    I broke
    All the walls of restraint
    Came crashing down
    Unleashing furious powers
    Of self destruction
    Fuelled with self contempt,
    Pity and hate

    Now I'm something I had never been
    An infernal tornado
    With fires from hell
    Leaving ruins in my wake
    As I rampage through myself
    Sucking myself into the vaccum
    Of my hollow heart
    The feeble memory of a past shimmers
    The first time I met you
    I was only a black hole

    THE SLEEP CYCLE

    I wish the earth would open up
    And swallow me whole
    So I can lie dormant
    Like a seed from ages past,

    And wake up someday
    To a world that is beyond recognition
    Or go back in time to a more luscious land
    Fearsome beasts and a haunted past

    Maybe I could lie there and sleep
    Forever and through all eternity
    Peaceful, with dreams pleasant
    And inescapable nightmares

    Who is to say that that isn't what is happening
    That I'm trapped in a nightmare
    Of my own making?
    Maybe when they bury me
    Beneath these grounds
    That has seen it all pass
    Maybe then would I finish this nightmare
    And begin a sweet dream
    In my eternal sleep

    MAKE - BELIEVE

    You walked in
    I tried to push you out
    But you overpowered my will
    And squeezed your way
    Into my tiny heart,
    Where no other had ever stepped in,
    You built a castle of your own

    All the while I tried in vain
    To stop you and throw you out
    But my strength had waned
    And my efforts half hearted
    Because I wanted you to stay
    As much as I was afraid that you would not

    And in the end you walked out
    Time stood still for me
    When I saw you with another
    The way I wanted us to be
    Tears would not come
    Screams frozen in my lungs
    I stood weak, my insides collapsed
    While a smile hid the pain

    But no one ever saw
    The depths of my love
    The ache of my soul
    The powerlessness underneath the strong façade

    I hid it well from all
    Even you never ever knew
    I tore down the castle
    My heart imploded

    I hid it well from all
    Even when I turned into a heartless ruin
    Even when from that crumbled heap
    Your face shone with my unshed tears

    FLAMING HEART

    I will shatter my heart into a thousand pieces,
    And stab myself over and over with each
    Shedding bloody tears streaming down a hundred thousand rivulets
    Into the scarlet pool of my heartbreak
    Yet I will love you
    Over and over
    A million times
    Through showers of my tears I will smile at you
    And you at me, knowing not
    That the rain you dance in is salty with my tears
    That the roses you adore are painted with the essence of my heart
    That the silence you and I share is filled with screams of my mind
    Yet I will love you
    Over and over
    And shatter my heart
    Over and over
    With some twisted happiness, I will savour it
    Knowing that it was all for you
    In the fluid grave of crimson
    As I lie on the embers that flame around me
    I shall remember
    The dark, dark sweetness that I so enjoyed
    Scented hot ferrous
    And coloured black, under my closed eyelids

    INK BLOTS

    Into the churning depths
    Of the whirlpool of my soul
    Into the infinite vaccum
    Of the black hole of my heart
    Into my dark world
    Where no fairy ever danced
    Where no unicorn ever pranced
    Where no string of pearl ever hung
    Into my dark world
    Where I knotted strings of letters
    Where I glued shredded pages
    Where I blew out candles
    And the light in my life
    Where molten wax and paper cuts
    Created insignias
    With dark shades of crimson
    Where the scent of smoke lingers
    As a reminder of my burning self
    Into my dark world,
    Whose walls I have layered
    With insentience, scorn and hate
    Where no other has ever stepped foot
    Into my dark world,
    I beckon you
    No more do I have to offer
    To tempt and entice, I have nothing
    A broken soul fumbling with letters
    On a tightrope of words
    And slipping, someday
    Into the entropic chaos
    Of fallen words and shattered dreams
    Buried under blankets of umbrous thoughts
    Trapped in a nightmare, for all eternity

    BROKEN RED

    You came to me
    I gave you a piece of my broken heart
    You asked for one more
    And glued them together
    I gave you more shards, exalted
    At how your deft fingers mended them
    You handed it back, shiny and red
    And beating loud, for you
    Then you left and I bled
    The crimson soaked through the glue
    And my heart fell apart,
    Dropped to the floor,
    Shattering into slivers
    Finer than before
    And when I try to pick them up
    My fingers paint your silhouette
    Against my reflection in red
    But you didn't know
    Neither did I
    That your care was the healing magic
    That held it together
    And even the tiniest bits of it
    Crave for you
    From the pool of blood
    In which they drown

    BLACK ROSES

    Where dandelions bloom
    Where dreams float in sweet air
    Where the sunshine lights up closed eyes
    Where canaries sing and butterflies flutter
    In that meadow, my love, shall we meet
    And smile and dance, for all eternity

    In that meadow, my love, shall we meet
    Far away from these burning ruins around us
    Far away from the smoke that chokes us both
    Far away from this blackness of my own making
    Far away from this twisted maze that my mind has woven
    Far away from the embers that glow
    From the remains of what once had been

    In that meadow, my love, shall we meet
    And would you forgive me then
    For what I did
    For when I pulled you into the darkness of myself
    For when I drowned you in the depths of my soul
    For when I strangled you with the love of my heart

    In that meadow, my love, shall we meet,
    The meadow of your dreams
    Far away from the burning ruins of my nightmares

    OF SUNSHINE AND DAISIES

    When sunlight pierces darkness
    When the rays of hope pervade
    Then shall I remember
    How you tried to save me
    In vain, knowing not
    The depths of the blackness
    That I had sunken into

    When I disappear
    Into the void of my own making
    Then shall I remember
    Your naivetè
    And how you reminded me
    Of when daisies bloom under sunlit skies

    When I say my last goodbyes
    When I finally find my peace
    Then shall I remember and smile,
    For the rare fortune that brought
    The unlikely friendship
    That you and I had

    METAMORPHOSIS

    When logic fails
    And logistics crumble
    It's words that keep you going
    Words that flow in ink
    Ribboning in the fresh parchment of life
    Filling the depressed hollows of your soul
    It is the inner poet that lives
    Even when the shell of rationality cracks
    Logic is but a stiff cocoon
    Poetry is the butterfly

    Truly Yours

    Things which are truly yours,
    will reach you one day, no matter how..
    No need to hold it tight,
    no need to hide it from the sunlight,
    no need of fake promises,
    no need to cherish it in your forehand.
    And not to worry about it's departure...
    It will return, no matter how far,
    If it is truly yours...
