The Plight

Do you suffer from a loveless life?
You are not alone in this world,
As no one is happy but miserable,
Even if they are blessed with love.

Cut of the expectation after a point,
And focus on how to live this life,
For you may not get this life again,
Stop chasing after love that’s fake.

You can’t undo the wasted time,
Waiting for finding the lost love,
But do yourself a favor forgetting,
The past that’s worthless and nil.

The proud peacock

She thought he liked only her,
But he liked not her soul,
That longed to be his side,
Left her for another, a cool one!

She waited for him for ages,
That passed like passing clouds,
He did come one day to find her,
And called her stupid!

He walked away shaking his head,
Feeling nothing for her, but pity,
As he moved on long back,
A practical man with dreams!

Inside the Ocean

Irresponsible is he to her,

Hanging out with friends,

Avoiding eye contact, talks,

That will lead to a fight.

A silent maniac is he!

She is an idiot to him,

Of no use but fit to earn,

Fool is she to live with him.

She knows it’s a death trap,

A life lock that has no key,

As he knows where it is,

Inside the deep, blue Ocean!
