I’ll Survive

 

20181008_123411_0001.png

Feelings that reverberate
Within like air locked in
the chest- choking;
I graze the surface
of the sea that
you drowned me in,
to taste the reality.
Coughing up phlegm
Of sorrow!
Breathing in strength
To survive.
The spaces in between
my fingers lay vacant,
I miss you.
But, like any warrior
I’ll thrive,
I’ll survive.

Rejoice and reminisce. Once upon a time, on a lovely day in the month of July, the 28th Ultimate Solace was born!

I’m obliged, rather blessed to have wonderful readers like You! It’s has been a hell of a ride but with you all by my side, with your writeups that make my day and the encouraging comments that inspire me to write better, post often and most important of all to write what’s on my mind.

To each and everyone of You, I would love to send my warm regards and gratitude.

I wish to read more, write more and post more. Please do visit Ultimate Solace for some love for the soul and frankness that comes automatically without any provocation.

Have a great weekend one and all.

#10 Truth Of Life: Wild Wild World

Being docile and naive
Is not the key,
To a life you’re living
In a world brimming with
liars and deceivers.
Embrace yourself tight
My dear the World
Is full of monsters
Not the ones who prefer
Cookies, they’re in for
Something more,
That you can never spare
Always be aware of them
Who are lurking around
For they want
nothing but,
Your Inner Peace.

FRIENDSHIP BLUES

large

Our friendship lay shriveled
In the arms of uncertainty
Succumbed to the clutches
Of love that must have held
Us together, rather
Coated with the layer
Of ignorance that now surrounds
Our souls that lay bare
In presence of love
That has drifted us apart.
I miss us.. Our friendship
Somewhere in afterlife
I shall meet you.
And we shall become
Friends again..

MOONSTRUCK

A curve set high
Up in the dusky skies,
Amidst the blue-ness of the clouds;
Complementing the mood
Of the night that’s just
About to set!
The skies that smiles be-jewelled,
The stars they are in full bloom-
Charmed by the glistening moon.
Aroused by the dimly illuminated
Night, consumed by the sound
Of the lashing waves against the shore,
Setting the universe ablaze
With the passion that
Now circles the sky.
I lay amused:
On a bed of sand
Enamored by the sublime
Essence of tonight,
Enthralled by the beauty
Of the moon.

Wide awake

Dark circle guards

My eyes they seem fine

No sleep, no slumber

Exposed to dis- ease & dis- comfort

I need some sleep

Devoid of apprehension.

I had forgotten the chaos

With the bliss of meditation

But, I’ve this thorn

In the bouquet of my life

Disturbing my peace,

My sleep-

that’s dear to me.

#9 Truth Of Life: CONSCIENCE SPEAKS

1b05e0d7cbcd158590fc71d39b273d84

DON’T DROWN AWAY

Sweat clings on
To the frowns that
Ornament the fore head,
Then
Dripping down onto
A sheet that’s white & spotless
From spick & span
To blotch & patch
Now making a difference
But not later
Likewise a mistake
That clings to your conscience
Then drips onto guilt
Making you sad & miserable
A mind that’s guarded by clarity
From sound & stable
To wounded & unstable
Now making a difference
Not later
Unless you choose
To forgive & to forget
To accept & to de-stress
Choice is yours.
~Shambhavi 

P.S: When conscience speaks listen to it. Change your ways or succumb to the guilt that may eagerly come your way.
