“I rise I fall”

Image

I rise

I fall.

 

I rise 

I fight 

I lose

I fall.

 

I rise

I forethink

I strategize

I fight

I win

I pride

I drink

I slip

I fall.

 

I rise

I meditate

I win

I pride

I slip

I fall.

 

I rise

I meditate

I win

I calm

I pride

I deflect

I slip

I fall.

 

This time

I’ll rise

I’ll meditate

Not to win

But not to fall.

 

“Promisee”

Image

The moment I do myself proud 

The next I feel crest-fallen.  

Thrice did I rake over old coals 

And found hurt many a pretty souls.  

It kills me apart …as those achy breaky hearts 

To whom my words were arrows and darts. 

I repent I perpetrated many atrocities 

Until the hell freezes over I’ll murder no promisee. 

“I have lost my smile”

Image

I have lost my smile

Have you seen her lately?

She used to adorn my face

But now she is gone, left no trace.

I had been mad at her

She glowed too often

Maybe it was her sense of humor

that I failed to comprehend. 

But she can’t remain mad at me

I’m her only best friend

She knows i have issues

With the world’s erratic trends.

Now, my face is naked

I feel the cold of shame

Well, come back to me

I take all the blame.

“When I look at you”

                Image

My heart beats faster 

My nerves get hotter

My lips sing laughter 

Nothing but you in view

The world does shatter

They whole don’t matter

“I’ll deal with them later”

My eyes fixed on you.

The clock gets slower

Butterflies do hover

You and me together

Over and over.
