Falling for Her, Poetry by Shubham Atul Kumar Joshi(SAKJ)

Genre: Sad, Romantic

Falling for Her by Shubham Atul Kumar Joshi(SAKJ)

Falling for her was never a matter of choice,
At its initiation, I knew the probability of being with her,
Was equivalent of getting a seven in a single chance of dice,
If given a chance would have never fallen for her,
If we were not meant to be,
then why the hell I met her….

I tried to hate her yet failed,
I tried to hide my feelings yet failed,
In the quest umpteen times I did hurt her,
If she got hurt coz of me did I really ever love her???
Well this question is of as inconsequence as is my life now,
But I will love her till my last breath that’s a vow……

They say true love never goes unattended,
May be my love was not as true as I had intended,
I fell for her with the way she walked, she talked,
she argued, and laughed like a child,
What I forgot was that from the moment of my birth,
I have been the destiny’s cursed child,
Falling for her was never a matter of choice,
At its initiation, I knew, I needed a seven in a single throw of dice…

IF?…………………………with apologies to Rudyard Kipling, Poetry by Lesley

Genre: Life, Society

 

IF?…………………………with apologies to Rudyard Kipling

 

If you can find your phone

When all about are fumbling in their bags,

If you can self scan shop,

And not find anything scarier, and carry on regardless

When there’s an unexpected item in the bagging area……

If you can choose the queue that has no ringing bell

And pack your stuff and find your purse

Although you feel like hell,

If you can stir a pot and clothe a tot and fill a vacuum flask,

And find a shoe and clear up poo – then you can multitask!

If you can smile when others take the piss

And not ask does my bum look big in this?

If you can fill the unforgiving minute

With sixty seconds worth of emails sent,

Then yours is the earth and all that’s in it –

And what’s more you’ve had  a life well spent

 

Lesley

lifetime, Poetry by catherine hsu

Genre: Sad, Hurt, Life, Hope

lifetime
catherine hsu

it’s six o’clock
she hears the whistle
a pause in time
it speeds past
in a flurry of smoke.
she closes her eyes,
waits for the wind,
and leaves it behind.

another day
it’s three o’clock
she feels the metal
bare feet on iron
she dances alone
to soundless music.
she picks up a pebble,
puts it in her pocket,
and moves along.

another day
three thirty this time
she shields her eyes
against the glare
it is almost beautiful.
she gives a grim smile,
reaches for a pebble,
and walks away.

another day
it’s four o’clock
she treads lightly
on the rocky path
the stones dig into her feet
blood or sweat she cannot tell
but she hobbles home again.
with a pebble in her shoe.

another day
four thirty now
she only walks
with shivers and chills,
but before she goes,
she pauses and thinks,
and takes a pebble.

another day
now it’s five
she sits there quietly,
and stares at the track,
she almost does it,
but at the last minute,
she picks up a pebble,
and leaves once more.

another day
it’s five thirty now
she sits there again,
but then she lays
down on the path
and stares at the stars
and if only for a moment
she is gone.

today is it
it’s six o’clock
she hears the whistle
a pause in time
it speeds past
in a flurry of smoke.
she closes her eyes,
waits for the wind,
and leaves everything behind.

To Timothy, Poetry by Axane Sand

GENRE : relationship

To Timothy by
Axane Sand

My feet, my feet
Are always borderline
Never able to choose
If they should fall or climb
To the right, to the left
Up or down there’s no sign
No little help to show me
Which way to decide

My eyes, my eyes
Aren’t along the same line
Not able to agree
If they are blue or blind
To the trees, to the sea
Over and here, there’s no light
Not enough golden green
To open my pupils

My heart, my heart
Can’t hear you on the line
Not able to debate
If you are wrong or right
Through the voice, through the sound
Empty or full, nothing’s bright
No good intonation
To restart inner beats

You have taken
What was rich inside
Leaving me my lonely poor side
That’s why I’m standing on the line
I’m standing on the line

Hoping you are borderline too
