The Journey

Poem By Ankur Shrivastava

A rainbow washed away,
In a torrid rain.
An urge to fly
With clipped wings.
Beauty brutally raped,
Virgin body, battered soul.

In this weird world,
No surprise, I walk alone…

Desires burned away.
Hopes brushed aside
Dreams long forgotten.

Carefree steps,
A thumping heart…
Pain flows in the vessels.
Rampaging as a river.

A haunted winter night,
Remainig embers of guilt
Keeping me warm.
Notions falling apart.
Memories fading away.

A fresh beginning,
Every step.
Shadows chased
Horizons challenged.
On roads never visited,
Journey is the destination.

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,
