#3 Haiku: Seagulls

Far across horizon

There flew birds of same feather

White birds with black tail.

Verbal diarrhoea


That ‘me’ within needs no tongue to express

It’s mal-functional when I’m in distress.

I wonder what I’ve on my mind

Whether an extraordinaire or the daily rind.

It’s not the unexpected turn of events I fear

Is it the plain pressure what they call of peer?

Oh Madame moiselle, I may correct you

Hello how are you? How do you do?!

Not just exchange of few verbal bizarre

At times, my mouth goes topsy turvy over par

I’m scared of nothing but my mistakes

Pardon me, I’ll try to pull the brakes

Over this very fear

I promise never to shed any tear

Over the matter so menial

As a matter of fact I’m being real.

I hate pleasing

As a matter of fact, that word isn’t appealing

At all I must add a few

It’s not just that I hate one or two

There are many that makes this ‘me’

Fall of the curve, down that C

Verbal diarrhoea they say

Has no cure whatever may

I tried hard and harder not to fail

My sea is mine and my boat is all mine to sail

Cease, is what I could afford

But, what do I do of all the emotional load?

Some say, suppress it, some say express it

When I do as they say, they don’t suffer one bit

At last I now know of that,

It’s your life, wear your choice of hat

Dress like a stripper or a clown

Up you go or down you drown

You got your soul

Hold yourself and up you roll

Your sleeves of wisdom

Continue your tandem

Beats of expression

Leave it all, have no tension.

Change

When words meant

nothing

I tried being silent

You messaged me once

You messaged me twice

And ’twas the last.

I told you to go away

And for a change

you said Yes

Without a fight.

That night everything

changed

Perhaps not you but,

My life changed

My world changed

I changed.

Since, I haven’t

looked back

And, I won’t be

looking either.

No Expectations

tumblr_nky8zzuiXM1uosmx1o1_500.jpg

Leaving me overwhelmed-
the words you choose,
to convey your thoughts
Are too harsh!
Piercing through my skin they,
Make my eyes bleed,
Tears of disappointment.
I see my expectations dying,
A painful death.
Suffocated at the hands of your chosen:
Words so venomous!
Alas, makes me realize
Never to expect.
Live like a free bird,
Soaring high in
the clear blue sky.
Un-stirred, imponderous;
But having a say,
like the seal of an unbroken promise-
From God to us,
To love us always.

Closure

Thoughts speak louder,
Than words could ever!
She wept for the answers
she never got,
All she needs is:
Closure not tears.

Freedom Reigns 

Designedbyme😍

Enough of the restrictions

I am a free bird

Don’t chain me

Let me breathe

Let me fly

Let me soar high

Let the wind take me away

With it to the clear skies

Blue and infinite

As it seems

May this journey be as fine

I want to be happy

I want to laugh

I want to be free

With no burden to carry at all

I am a free bird

Don’t chain me

Let me breathe

Let me fly.

Burst the bubble that you call an armor, it’s refraining you from achieving the impossible.

Admirable Beauty

Your words are full of wisdom,
Your thoughts painted with love,
Your soul so beautiful!
Your smile one of a kind,
Your mind so spotless!
A remarkably admirable strong woman with a radiance unmatchable.
