Lonely No More

Her moment will come,
To unleash her fiercest desires.
When desires will no longer be tamed,
Passions burning hotter than the sun.

***

Having dwelt in them so long,
Her heart had turned to ice;
Numb and cold,
Eyes fierce; yet delicate.

***

A fiery temperament; alike that of a tigress,
Yet her soul;
Melancholy like cloudy days and raindrops.
Her eyes, could burn holes through hearts of men.

***

With eyes hiding the love of thousand suns,
Her breath as cold as winter breeze,
And his on fire
Together their love was as fierce as ever.

***

She was his girl, both bound together by destiny,
Oh Mauli…!
There’s a wolf hiding behind your eyes,
And, Only he could see, the flames inside your soul.

A Drug of My Choice

0e364edefe86b610630485b196fbaf58

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

Indulge; Plunge,
Maybe even if for seconds.
Explore; and,
Come back for more.
Vices; entice us;
They allure,
Often too much to endure.

*****

Someone’s vices,
Are another’s virtue.
forever interchangeable.
Ideals are wonderful,
If trapped; then a destructive attachment.
When to strike a balance,
Between virtues and vices?

*****

Cigarettes: joints; weed,
Booze; black coffee,
Cruel or snide;
Dirty and deplorable.
Miles upon miles,
Slithering along the old,
Forgotten bend.

*****

My love;
You are my drug; my vice;
My escape from reality.
One kiss sends me flying through the seasons.
Your electrifying touch,
Sending a fire across my skin.
My addiction; the high of my life.

*****

Balance…,
Is that not what life is?

Lies: Truths We Wish To Hear

download

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

Lies;
Broken promises and crushed hopes
A different brand of heartbreak
Mind rationalizing the malady
Sabotaging relationships
Unknown depths of dark deceit
Stabbing; silently through the chest.

***

Cheat;
Playing wicked games of mind
The truth hidden, a black vacuum
Choking the essence of love
Chooses to stay on; ignoring,
Caging our sanity; paralyzing the heart
Strangling  commonsense till blind.

***

So easy to lie and cheat
But can one cheat on Death…?

Fallen Leaves

1797537_776711895672574_3290131059459495711_n
By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

The daylight declines,
To linger;
As the leaves fall,
Away with the wind.
Whispering together;
Before a storm,
Naked branches,
Now scratched by cold wind.

***

From the seed
We were conceived,
Spring; being our beginning.
Each lyrical leaf,
Dancing;
Gracefully upon the wind.
The leaves take counsel;
Some linger on while some fly down.

***

Destined to fall upon stony ground,
Witness to a part of life’s infernal gyration.
Oh..! I am but a simple leaf,
Withering now; within the gutter.
A pledge of foliation
Continuing to endure; an autumn flutter.
What spring has furnished;
Autumn expires.

A Shattered Dream

The-Death-of-the-Princess-Tarakanoff

 By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

Trembling and bewildered,
Standing bravely in the middle of a crisis,
Heart remaining the same as it is,
She acts…
Her woes,
Obviously masked.

***

Those blank expressions,
Her scars she’s hidden after the incident.
No one knows,
She’s dying inside.
No one knows,
How much is weighing down on her shoulders.

***

I could see,
Something beyond the obvious.
Turmoil;
Underneath the careful blank slate.
Tears she keeps back in her empty eyes,
Quivering lips; through the forged smile.

***

Lives slump over days
Those trivial quarrels;
Never will come back
Forever gone
The long hallway to hope disappears
And disappointment take hold.

***

What isn’t obvious to all, is her tears,
The ones that she lets flood out,
After shutting her bedroom door at night..
Noose and death fill her thoughts.
Hollowness;
Loneliness sets in,
Resting in the intangible.

This poem is dedicated to a dear friend of mine who has lost her minor son to the jaws of death. May God give strength and courage to the parents to bear this loss.

आज फिर उस मोड़ पर मुड़ना हुआ…

Sunday Reading

-रंजीता नाथ घई

आज फिर उस मोड़ पर मुड़ना हुआ 
जब रखा था पहला कदम मैंने इस देहलीज़ पर…..
मन में डर और एक अजीब  सी बेचैनी थी,
नए थे गलियारे और नयी सी दीवारें थी, 
थम सी जाती थी हँसी और कशमकश से जूझती थी,
फिर दिखी एक सुनहरी किरन, इंद्रा धनुष से रंग बिखेरती किरन,
आत्मविश्वास जगाती एक किरन, तूफानों को थामती हुई किरन,
भविष्य की आहट पहचान, आगे बढऩे का हौसला देती वो किरन,
आज फिर उस मोड़ पर मुड़ना हुआ 
जब रखा था पहला कदम मैंने इस देहलीज़ पर…..

****

कौन पकड़ पाया है रिशतों को और रेत को,   
जितना समेटना चाहा उतना ही हाथों से सरकती गई, 
हाथ कल भी खाली थे और आज भी खाली है,
बीते कल के पास न कहने को कुछ नया है,
न इसके पास तुझे देने को कुछ नया है,
कुछ है तो बस एक मीठा सा ऐहसास है,
एक प्यारी सी मुसकान है, एक अपनेपन का आगास है, 
आज फिर उस मोड़ पर मुड़ना हुआ 
जब रखा था पहला कदम मैंने इस देहलीज़ पर…..

****

तूने किया वो सब जो तेरे बस में था,
उसी बंधन से मुक्त हो आगे बढ़ने का समय आया है,
पल-पल, क्षण-क्षण, नई उडान भरते हुए 
नए गीत गाने हैं, तसवीर में नए रंग भरने हैं,
सप्त चक्र के जीवन में सुमधुर यादें बटोरने का,
कुछ अपनो से विदा लेने का, कुछ नए रिश्ते जोड़ने का वक्त आया है,
आज फिर उस मोड़ पर मुड़ना हुआ 
जब रखा था पहला कदम मैंने इस देहलीज़ पर…..
