Promises

Poem By ANJALI KAKATI

You promised me the sky
You took me high
And just
when I had started to fly
you vanished
letting me fall freely
wounding the wings of my soul
I might never ever fly
Why did you
promise me the sky
When all you could do was
to leave me to die?

You promised me the sea
You took me deep
And just
When I had started to swim
You left
Letting me drown in the depths
and with me my faith and hopes.
I might never ever rise again
Why did you
promise me the sea
when all you could do was
to leave me to gasp,
never to rise?

Why did you
promise me the sea?
Why did you
promise me the sky?

“ I Will Never Love You Again”.

Every night,
I cry out my heart
To the pillow
And turning it upside down,

Female Bonding

Celebrating
Moments of our
Friendship
Past,

Aei Ajnabi

Aei ajnabi
Kyon tum mujhko
Itne aapne se lage?

Just A Kiss

Hold me close
So close.
My bosom
Heaves breathlessly

Jab Tum Nahi The To Kitna Sukun Tha 2

Hume tanhaiyon ki aadat thi
Tanhai ka koi naam nahi tha..
