Happiness

Come read Sarah’s – HAPPINESS

Heartstring Eulogies

“All I ever wanted
was to make you happy.
And I will never give up trying.”

All I ever wanted was to make you happy. Though you deny it, I know I failed. I wanted to show the world I could survive anything. And I did try. But at every turn, it feels like one step forward leads to two steps back. And with so much at stake — being a mother, a bleeding heart, an empath, a wife, a person — a living, breathing, person — a survivor, it feels as if all I can do lately is fail.

All I ever wanted was to be happy. I guess I failed at that too

But that doesn’t mean I will ever give up trying.

I will never give up trying.

No Accident

Come read Nandita’s writing and you will see her words are – NO ACCIDENT.

A Tangle of Weeds

I may have stumbled upon poetry
accidentally one day
driven by extreme voices
strangulated far too long
within the confines of a stubborn mind
overthrown at last by a profusely bleeding heart.

But I am, by no means, an accidental poet.
I had poetry trapped in my veins
Lying dormant, just no escape..
Until that fated day
When it poured, never to stop again…

I am not an occasional poet either
I do not write because I like to.
I write because I have to.
There lies the difference!

If you’ve sensed pathos in my dark writings
You have also seen the delirium
of what I become
when in love;
I speak in metaphors!
I become what I speak
I speak what I bleed.
And when my poetry aches
I seek refuge in your words.

Reluctant to Say

Come and read – RELUCTANT TO SAY.

Overflowing Ink

I’m reluctant to say I love you

I’m reluctant to say you are wanted

I’m reluctant to say what is in my heart

I’m reluctant to say you are a need

I’m reluctant to say I cherish you

I’m reluctant to say you are special

I’m reluctant to say you are amazing

I’m reluctant to say you are an angel

I’m reluctant to say anything

I might as well join the rest of the world

YOU MAKE ME WANNA

Come read the romantic poem – YOU MAKE ME WANNA.

Romantic Love Poems- Words from Heart

Long day, I come home from work,
Am so tired, my eyes hurt.
And all I want is your arms around me,
Holding me close, loving me.

I try to chill but am waiting for the doorbell,
I want you back home as well,
Cause I can’t wait for your arms around me,
Holding me close, loving me.

And there you are, all ruffled hair,
You look so good, I can’t help but stare.
I want you close,
Close to me right now.

You make me wanna forget every harsh thing,
Smile so much more, tend my ruffled wings.
Throw away the doubts, be once again strong,
Remember I am special and to you I belong.

You make me wanna love you so much more,
You are the eternal wave on my life’s shore.
I pray the sun always shine upon us,
Because I love you darling, just love you…
