One Day

I am not crying because you are leaving me for one day
I am crying because you will leave me one day

Everything will feel right
Every other thing will become good
There will be a twist in tale
And you will be happy soon

You were just too tough on yourself
You didn’t let someone close
What was your mistake
That you loved her like a fool

Don’t worry, the clouds will shine
The rains will finally be over
The rainbow in the midst will be
The harbinger of things to come!

Someone will come
Someone will hold your hand
Someone will wipe that sarcasm off your lips
And that someone will become your sunshine indeed

There will be a picture of you two
Walking the altar
And hey, you will finally agree with me
Not all females are blood sucking bitches!

Irritatingly Repetitive

Post: EtherealJinxed | Poem: Irritatingly Repetitive | Image Courtesy: @surrealaberrantHave you been in a loop
Like a mad person in a soup

Refreshing the same thing again
In the hopes of getting a single mail

Failed attempts on holding the one
Who was never yours and that’s the pun

So have you been stuck in a loop
Where dreams are better than reality, you fool

Queuing up the moments to watch it again
With the hope of reliving it in vain

Hundred and a thousand calls,
But those were never yours to dial and shove

Yes, I have been in a loop
Stuck in a time-warp waiting for you like an old boot

Bas ek Khwaab

Post: EtherealJinxed | Poem: Bas Ek Khwaab | Image Courtesy: SurrealAberrantAaj main hoon betaab,
khoye khoye hain yeh khwaab.
Aawaaz ek bulaaye,
khwaabon main kho jaaye.
Teri hasi, tera mazaak,
ban ke reh gaya…
… bas ek khwaab!

Aasmaan mein bhi yeh rang,
badal se kyun gaye hain?
Din-b-din jo guzre,
baat bhi na ho paaye.
Teri hasi, tera mazaak,
ban ke reh gaya…
… bas ek khwaab!

Taare ginti hoon main,
ki tujhe bhool jaaoon.
Per taaron mein bhi tu hai,
har ek khwaab mein tu hai.

Jab bhi tu muskuraaye,
mera din ban jaaye.
Jab bhi main sochti hoon,
soch ke hi doobti hoon.
Teri hasi, tera mazaak,
ban ke reh gaya…
… Bas Ek Khwaab!

Can I take a break today
I am tired of the acts night and day

Can we discuss things
Like we used to have a fling

Can we talk as a we
And not as you and me

Baby, I had tried my best
To give everything a rest

Never wanting to let you go
I still did all to push you, my old jo

You were as close as skin can be
You were the breath holding me

How can I be so selfish
To pin you up on my cloth string

Hanging out to dry
Like my sliver of hope, however thin it might

Still, can we take a big break today
Can we have things going
Like we were used to wooing

A little part of me loves a whole lot of you
and it always aches for more.

And it ain’t no, no for me
to make out tonight.

And it ain’t no place for me
to hide out tonight.


Post: EtherealJinxed | Poem: Mirage | Image Courtesy: SurrealAberrantFar in the distance
Among the sea of unknown faces
Was a guy coming towards me
With a wide smile on his face

Staring into his face
I had to stop myself
I was falling in love
With him yet again

That deep dimpled smile
And I was already his to take
The best combo we were
I again felt

Wanting to score bonus points
I averted my gaze
For I had to have my sanity
‘Cos he was for just a few lays

Fading colors of our pic
The tearing in three corners
Pulled me back
As yet another year flew past

What do you know of love, I wanted to ask
But you had already experienced it all

How was I special to you, I wanted to know
For you had girls always falling over, now I know

The gentleman-ish charm everyone said you had
I was moved beyond grief to pull back
He is mine, only mine, I wanted to stake claim from all

But how am I to keep you
When I am distanced so further away
For there are so many petty shades

You are the matchmaker of my heart
And that’s all I know
For you were the only one to irritate me the most

Scarlet hues

Post: EtherealJinxed Poem: Scarlet Hues | Image Courtesy: SurrealAberrantYou made me smile like a shine in the night
You made me glow like you know after glow
Those are the few moments I will always keep to my heart
For never gonna another come like a dart

Your smile on seeing me widened
Your eyes grinning scarlet
Your arms clasped tight around my waist
For every meet became a sacred faith

Baby, it was like
I was living a parallel life
Wanting the same for you
To unburden my guilt and to unfreeze you

With fights and shouts
With heartrending and pouts
To faithless life and clowns
To scary dreams and empty towns

Oh yes, I had a life
I only couldn’t hold my frustration right!

A Ship on Sail

Post: EtherealJinxed Poem: A Ship On Sail | Image Courtesy: SurrealAberrantA ship on the sail, I could see
From the tiny boat rocking on the sideways
A whoosh of air, I sensed
Like the feel of fresh air breathe

A bigger ship came from behind
Gobbled up the ship in front with its monster teeth like
And then whoop it vanished
Like there was nothing ever there

Scared that I was, I screamed out loud
My screams waking me up in a foul mood
Moods that swing up and down all day long
But this, I could hold no more.

Every dream has a meaning, it’s said
But what should I infer, when will you tell me?
It’s like my all other dreams
Of me talking in my sleep of wanting something

May be I was not alone there
But I could not see him yet
Probably there was someone with me
But it was getting scarier indeed!
