Don't judge my poem as i wrote this on 4/08/2018, & that was literally when i started writting, so yeahi just wrote whatever rhymed & made a bit sense lmao. As @mirakee posted abt it, i just felt to let it out, idk whyyy! Clearly, am embarrased, but we learn as we grow. Kuddos to 3 year back me haha!
The very first collab with one & only @vichus Hope y'all like it.
I lay down in the bed tried to close my eyes to listen those whisper and howls inside my body, eyes that sees beauty in everything sheding tears and burning in vain, like the lonely winter tree without leaves, none sees beauty in it but a void, maybe who carries darkness within. I did not die, but mentally i died more than thousand times i dig my own graveyard for no reasons i've been stabbed million times by my own thoughts in the nights, fierce tears rolling down the cheeks to reminiscence everything like a projector, the depth of the rays melting my emotions into a rage that cast a spell of destruction to my own happiness, my anguish flows from the rift of unremembered stars of hope.
I lay down on the grass, closing my eyes, tryna listen those phrases my heart whisper with the tint of cool zephyr into my ears, the way the leaves bid their farewell from the branches, falling on the ground, with the allure finnesse one could ever witness. It feels as if nature's being born again, yet with the exact fresh essence which reminds me of the cologne, bringing a smile on my face, shine in the eyes & glitter in the soul, as if i've returned back to those golden days, back down the memory lane, as if i'm still on grass barefoot, as i really am. As if my heart's still warm & yet cold. As if i'm still singing with the choir of canaries, as if i'm still alive within those delusional promising world of yours.
My love for Indian History, esp Jodha Akbar is endless. The more I try to forget it, the more those monuments & talks comes in front of my head. So I just thought of inking a thought of Akbar, if he were to express his love for Jodha now. Also, let me tell you, Agra Fort & Fatehpur Sikri is a must visit :)
_____________________________________________________ Verses: A smile strikes my face As I hear your footsteps Marching towards me With the calm sootheness Of your anklet, The sweet & sour Playfullness of your eardrop, The shy gesture Of your nosering. The loosened pallu Which peeps into your eyes Allurely, Devoting pure love Towards the tomb Of panchmahal That lies straight over your head, The quietude anup talab Which still sings The raag of our love The way it did back then, Expressing Our unity despite hurdles Despite religion Despite culture Despite background Despite heritage. Your winter palace Speaks the melodious Incident For when I entered Your kaksh the very first time For when the moon was too shy For when we made history. The sparkle in your eyes, Is still fresh in my memory As if you're standing Right beside me Holding my hand, Looking upon the sky & Talking to me Like we used to do back then. I wonder, How does the time flies So fast, Its already been more than 4 centuries, But the smell of red brick The silence of night Makes me feel As if everything Just took place yesterday. As if We're still in love. As we still are. As we'll always be.
