Broken, yet Unbroken


The door to my heart

Leads into the dark

If you light the corners,

If you make a spark

You will go deeper down

So wait;

Wait until the light shines bright

The seams are loose so hold on tight

And pray.

Pray for the fears to go away

Pray that faith and trust will return some day

And hope;

Hope that love will open the door

That your tears are enough to drown my shore

And I will learn to forgive;

I will learn to forgive and I will shatter the walls

I will open my ears and I will hear your calls

The glass will fall apart

I will try to love you with all my heart.

P.S. I have not posted anything for a long time. I am happy to make a post again. So here I go !

Amigos :)

For all my loved ones on WordPress-
When the sun was bright, the ocean blue,

You touched my soul, said, “How d’ you do?”

Oh, did I know that you would stay

That you would liven up each day?

And when the sky seemed dark and gloom,

The flowers promised not to bloom,

You touched my soul and brought a smile

You held my hand, we walked a mile.

And bit by bit my sorrows did

elope in fear, no more they hid

Under the darkness of my soul,

For you were there and I was whole.

The nooks and crannies of my heart,

The wearied strings long torn apart-

You stayed on, strived with all your might

You held on, gave me reasons to fight

You lit my path, you gave me life

You gave me reason to survive.

And if ever I did unleash my mind

Gave all my love, in trust turned blind

That embodied you mean to me

More than the stars that you can see.

Your deeds unnumbered, my words at war

To let you know how dear you are!

Though there is little that I can do,

Yet I promise, I’ll always be there for you.

The Sea, My Paradise



And under the sea I have lived;

lived and escaped ruthless humanity 

Distant dreams, more distant life

Yet, like a work of art beautifully tainted.

I have lived and loved the ocean blue,

the creatures too minuscule for my pounding heart.

With every breath I have inhaled tranquility

I have been engulfed by waves,

and in the waters I have immersed 

to quieten the mayhem in my heart

I have danced to the melody of the rising tides

And with the falling tides, unperturbed I have slept

Like the pebbles smoothened by the waves,

I have attained my paradise in the sea.

Can You Love Me ?

Can you love me with my ruins?
Can you love me with my scars?
Can you love me when the sky is dark,
when rain clouds hide the stars?

Can you love me if I let you know
that I have been through hell?
If I tell you things I’ve never shared,
can you promise not to tell?

Can you heal my scars and make
me feel like everything is fine?
When things go wrong and I am down,
can you still help me shine?

I need not love, I am complete
Give me a shoulder to cry on
If I promise you we’ll be good friends
Will you my dear, be gone?

Will you not stay to touch my soul
So I can feel your love?
Will you heal my scars and set me free
So I can fly above?

I Am a Woman

image

I’m not this hair, I’m not this skin
I am the soul that lives within.
I’m not this curve, I’m not this fat
I am a woman, have I told you that?
My shade, my eyes, my lips, my face
Not to forget my cheeks, in case
you consider these while defining me
I still don’t care, I’m a woman, you see!
If my beauty is what you’ll define,
why not then my enchanting smile?
Why not my heart of love and care?
Why judge my skin that’s dark or fair?
I know, for you my guise is all
It matters whether I’m short or tall
But to love me true, you’ll need to find
the beauty that is in my mind
I wear not looks, nor care for things
that falseness, and hollowness bring
In guise a handsome, gentleman
Without whom I’ll embrace my tan!
For I live to love, to care and share
My heart for wounded souls I spare.
Beauty always, in my heart will be
I am so pretty, I am a woman, you see!

Obstacles in the Path of Love

Have you ever loved someone
and hated him as well?
Blocking painful memories,
forgetting you went through Hell.

Have you ever loved someone
for he loved you the same?
Yet, you knew he hated you
Made you cringe with guilt and shame.

Have you ever loved someone
for he’s as broken as you?
The stories untold, secrets unknown
Though, in togetherness you grew.

Have you ever loved someone
for you wished to heal his scars?
When both of you were worlds apart,
you dreamed to reach the stars.

Have you ever loved someone
and wished he’d love you back?
Just once he’d ask for forgiveness
and help you heal each crack.

Have you ever loved someone
and wished to hold him tight?
Wished you’d share much love and care,
wished things would soon be right.

Have you ever loved someone
for you knew he loved you too?
He cared for you and craved for you
But there was nothing you could do.

Have you ever loved someone
and wished you wouldn’t be so far?
If only he would heal your heart
and every tiny, little scar!

An Optimistic Note

Another piece from my “Sickness Diaries”
Yes, it is undeniable that illness makes you creative. I believe so 🙂

When you are in bed,
just sick, you know
You stay in bed,
no place to go.

No place to go
means nothing to do.
But, do you believe that?
Is that true?

You can be a thinker,
you can think and think.
And you can change the world
with paper and ink.

P.S. These lines that I so often wrote really helped me in achieving quick recovery! 🙂
