Poem By Shikha Singh

I've lost the ability to express
Thoughts are nothing but a jumbled mess
I am surprised at how time moulds you
I am awed at how life holds you!

Hands draw you back and
Keep you glued to the ground
Chain you with reality,
Gnaw at you like a hound.....

Time heals your sour wounds,
But leave a deep scar....
To remind you of the failures you've accumulated so far!

You have to suppress your voice when you want to cry
Shadows don't leave you no matter how hard you try...

An emptiness fills your whole being...
You wonder how to express/escape this wretched feeling!
You await a small opening from inside the closed doors
A share of Sun....a ray that's yours....

When why how your being was transformed?
Who is this in the reflection your mirror has formed? ? ? ? ?
Suffocating is this alien personality..
You dread to open your eyes and accept the reality! !

Open your life and accept change;
Its like a flower in midst fo a mountain range.
blooming and shining unconditionally;
spreading its fragrance and hue in the valley.


Deep down in the heart, there's a sound of grief;
Something that is making it go against all its belief.
Sounds of agony are echoing in the valley of knowledge;
Helpless is the situation, 'coz retaliation needs courage.


I’ve lost the ability to express,
Thoughts are nothing but a jumbled mess.
I’m surprised at how time moulds you,
I’m awed at how life holds you.


I’m longing for something, everybody longs for;
Roses between the Iron bars;
A cascade of stars in the icy lakes;
A lingering sweetness in the salty flakes.

Glowing Dreams

Deep in the darkness,
Lightening my dreams;
Betwixt the moon,
Stars flowing in a stream.
