You held my tiny hand in your grip
Took me to places in your footsteps
You never let anything harm me
I was safe and protected
You said they are here to loot
They are here to hurt
I saw it through your eyes
A world full of Inhumans
I was inside the border
Which you never let me cross
Maybe I was not yet ready
But I was safe and protected
You are a fighter
My only role model
Who gave me wings
To be the best like you
I was ready to face them To fight them back…
Did you remember the day we met for the first time?
It’s still in front of my eyes
Your smile behind the scarf
Anxiety in your footsteps
As you walked towards me
The bus journey on a bumpy road
Crackling noise of windows
Which interrupted our conversations
The laughs we had
Cadbury bites we shared
Sitting next to each other with an inch gap
Every moment and every second
Is still in front of my eyes!
The blush on your red cheeks When you hid your face to read my first letter And the way you looked at me…
When I was a kid I used to think over and over about a crazy thought.
Why do we exist? Why were we born?
Why do we go through the pain and join in life?
Just to die someday?
Is someone controlling this entire universe?
Maybe someone is watching us from outside the universe
Like how we watch microorganisms through a microscope
Is it the God who watches us continuously?
What if there are no humans on this planet? Not just humans, any form of life A place there are no planets, stars and sun A place where this entire…
I Became alive when you stepped in my frontage
Opened the doors for you to wander in my heart
As you walked in,
All shades of grey turned into the colours of a rainbow
Your authentic smile,
Lightened the dark walls of my soul
Whispered a cool breeze through windows
And played a melody with striking chimes
To comfort you and feel safe
How would I know there will be a day,
To stand alone and watch you walk out of my doors
Just to remind me I’m a place meant to visit but not to live.
Hold back you little heart
Your wounds are still fresh
I can’t let you down again
I know, brainy
But I can’t hide anymore
Let me fly
This world is cruel my poor guy
You can’t face another storm
I failed many times
I became stronger every time I hit the ground
I have the courage to face it again!
Besides, what’s the purpose if I can’t face it?
Bravo! Fly high my champ.
I am by your side to rescue, as always.
They haven’t rejected the girl I love.
They rejected my emotions, feelings,
And my right to choose the one I love.
I’m conscious and my senses are perfect
I’m a responsible man, not a teenager
I understand their concerns,
But all they care is about society.
They barely know about her,
But what matters to them is her caste.
You know what, it’s just the mask
To hide their intentions.
It’s the ego and insecurities of the puppet master; Racist Parents.
But in the end, we blame the puppet; Caste.
Why is my heart fluttering like this?
I never felt this pain in my heart before
Feels like my heart is drowning into a void
Am I floating in the air?
Or am I high on dopamine?
Why am I feeling butterflies around me?
Hm, I don’t know what it is
But let me enjoy this
With a bright smile on my lips
Like a stupid, while I wait for her reply
It’s just her in my mind,
In my thoughts, in my heart and in my breath.
I even lost a space for myself in my mind.
Oh, Is this how it feels to fall in love?
You were a breeze,
Which gave me a relief,
From my grief.
We were at that feast,
It was a bliss.
I enjoyed your wrist,
Around my sleeve.
I was close to you; I meant
But when you were close to him; I regret
Your care for him,
Was a pain for me.
A secret pain that burnt my eyes
Blurred my sight.
