I Am A Dream!

Poem By Ankur Shrivastava

Neither the way I pretend
Nor what I seem,
I am nothing but a dream..

With layers to be scratched,
Cryptic meanings,
Unplumbed depths
And heights unconquered,
A story untold,
A language unknown,
All painted in a blurred vision...

Loved or loathed,
A feeling of nostalgia
Often forgotten,
Colours will soon dissolve,
And voices in slumber
Would be lost,
Recognition and admiration
and the distance between,
Dream with ambitious wish....

Safe in your oyster eyes
I have got a lovely life,
Rays of sun will mark my end
Dawn will never descend,
I shall die even before
I truly come alive....

I am nothing but a dream...

I Am The Poem!

You wrote a lovely poem
And threw it away,
Just because it didn’t rhyme?

A Day In Love!

We wake up together.
Your warm breath,
Falling on my neck..

A Missing Star!

In an unending night,
You looked out of your window,
A dim star I was,
But your gaze gave me light.


To mend that imperfct line,
I look for words again,
A lost poet tries hard,
To dip his love in colors of pain.

Wrong Dream

Have you ever dreamt?
Tender and misty,
Without calculation,


He hangs around the same river,
Still tosses a pebble,
And looks for the ripples,
