Right kind of wrong

image

Life wants to take a different route
And it’s not what the heart wants
When instincts take over logic
It is the right kind of wrong!

Sacrifice asks more of you
And it’s not what you’d like to give
When selfishness creeps in
It is the right kind of wrong!

Dreams want to come true
And they make fate’s cruel game
When you make your own destiny
It is the right kind of wrong!

Love is but your only choice
And it belongs to someone else
When devotion becomes obsession
It is the right kind of wrong!

You want to be the real you
And the world around does not
When the grit turns invincible
It is the right kind of wrong!

It’s my time….

image

You carried me safe for nine months long
Made sure that I was born strong
When you are on the last stanza of your song
It’s my time to carry you along!

You safe gaurded me against all storms
During tough times wrapped me in your arms
When you need someone to fight for you
It’s my time to make sure I do!

You put food in my mouth no matter what
Despite the gnawing hunger in your gut
When all that is left is your legacy and pride
It’s my time to ensure your life a beautiful ride!

You are my never ending strength and lifeline
My being is your gift and my soul your shrine
When we prepare for blessed eternity
It’s my time to provide a glorious dignity!

Muse

What do you see when you look at me
I am the soul for your inner child
The freedom into the unconfined wild
I am what you always want to be!

What do you see when you look at me
I am the remedy for your pain
The rays of sun after the rain
I am the world you want to see!

What do you see when you look at me
I am the reason for your smile
The reason why you live a while
I am the truth you can never disagree

What do you see when you look at me
I am your passion, beloved and muse
The one to make vanish your blues
I am the sanity that sets you free!

Irony

image

We pine for things we won’t get
We run after people who don’t care
We come up with reasons on being right
And call it the irony of life

We abuse relationships of the dear
We cry when those are not near
We wish we could do so much
And call it the irony of life

We hurt those who love us
We get hurt by who we love
We forgive those who don’t deserve
And call it the irony of life

We don’t care for our parents when old
We want their money and all their gold
We often forget why we exist in the first place
And call it the irony of life

We want to prove to those who doubt us
We give our virtues to those who betray
We claim loneliness and being love lorn
And call it the irony of life

We treat our bodies like trash cans
We rush to the doctors when it recoils
We speak about fitness but no action
And call it the irony of life

We don’t respect our surroundings
We want it to be perfect still
We turn blind to the useful resources
And call it the irony of life

We feel bad for refugees in Syria
We argue about all the wrong doings
We can contribute to the better but won’t
And call it the irony of life

We waste food like no tomorrow
We feel pity for the unfortunate
We sit on our couches and don’t do a thing
And call it the irony of life

We say it is all about inner beauty
We however judge on the appearance
We get all philosophical at convenience
And call it the irony of life

We rebuke those who are childless
We cringe about female infanticide
We tall eloquently about social causes
And call it the irony of life

We call ourselves agnostic
We say we are more spiritual than not
We still pick sides during crisis
And call it the irony of life

We marry for true love (so we say)
We procreate for sake of love too
We realize otherwise and chug along
And call it the irony of life

We revile the earth we live in
We crucify those who toil for humanity
We keep the surplus of good to ourselves
And call it the irony of life

Cocaine

image

I try to smoke away the chaos
Oblivious to what is around me
You are a lethal addiction
Bringing me closer to my end

There are moments of exhilaration
That mask the pains of my life
You are an endless deception
Pushing me into a dark abyss

Nothing feels as truer than true
When I am wasted you make a home
You are an ultimate lie to happiness
Intoxicating me and my few breaths

I want to be rehabilitated
Free of your love, lust and longing
You are like the kiss of cocaine
Unyielding to my last inhalation

Snow

image

There were times dark of decisions
When words made the deepest incisions
Forgive me if I let my revenge grow
Because I am not clear as the snow!

There were moments of relentless grudge
When loved ones did a dirt smudge
Forgive me if I become not the one you know
Because I am not pure as the snow!

There were junctures of my ripped probity
When I was bestowed with venality
Forgive me if towards world I disgust show
Because I am not untainted as the snow!

There were those who cut my head off
When their low they couldn’t quaff
Forgive me if I treat you like a foe
Because I am not chaste as the snow!

There were hours of immense need
When my dreams were mixed up with greed
Forgive me if I ignore your chateau
Because I am not righteous as the snow!

It’s time…

image

I was your hope, when there was none
I stood by you, when all was done
Yet you took the liberty to hurt me
May be because I was free!

I was your happiness, when there was none
I made you smile when there was no fun
Yet you did not hesitate to kill my soul
May be I was never your goal!

I was your peace, when there was none
I helped you be calm when you were a shun
Yet you always returned me pain
May be I was of no gain!

I was your freedom, when there was none
I kept your secrets even when they were pun
Yet you always wanted me gone
May be I was worthless alone!

I was your love, when there was none
I gave you life when you wanted to run
Yet you always left me to fate and destiny
May be it is time you forever lost me!!

You complete me

If there could be heaven on earth
I don’t know how that would be
My world is a paradise
Because you complete me

If I were anymore beautiful
I don’t know how that would be
My mirrors say that I indeed am
Because you complete me

If success were to be at my feet
I don’t know how that would be
Failure stays far, far away
Because you complete me

If I were rich and famous
I don’t know how that would be
I feel like the most luckiest girl
Because you complete me

If I had all that I ever wanted
I don’t know how that would be
Life is always at its best
Because you complete me

If wishes were horses
I don’t know how that would be
Every dream of mine is fulfilled
Because you complete me

Because of you…

image

Life, I was told is always tragic
And seldom there is any magic
Yet, you happened to me in an odd way
Because of you I live today!

Trust, I was told was the act of weak
And that return favors are just bleak
Yet, you gave me the courage to dare
Because of you, I learned to care!

Laugher, I was told was a nuisance
And it never happiness’ real essence
Yet, you created my widest smile
Because of you, I enjoy every while!

Truth, I was told never brings any luck
And with panic and dread you’re stuck
Yet, you taught the purity of thought
Because of you I am never distraught!

Love, I was told is the reason for misery
And it leaves you scary and teary
Yet, you made me the best memories
Because of you everything is bliss!

(Title inspired by Kelly Clarkson’s, “Because of you”)

Fool!

image

I, the fool who rushes in
And does not ever win
Then I cry that it hurts
But it never comes with an alert

I, the eternal optimist
Wants you to always insist
Be the first to make a move
And your affection to prove

I, the hopeless romantic
In your absence becomes frantic
Then I pine to see you
For those precious moments few

I, forever waiting in vain
The distance is indeed a pain
And want to be near you
So I can prove my love is true!!
