Speak Softly For They Are Listening

w4og2hd

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

The butterflies have fled.
Sparrows have flown away;
Never to return.
Living within the circle of smoke and fumes
That hovers above.
Arrogantly. Ravenously;
Fighting over pieces of the earth,
As if driven by the devil.
We beasts; The Humans,
Born from her;
Dependent on her,
Yet, we dishonour her creations.

*

Fully aware of our misdeeds;
We pillaged.
Like pirates possessed by the evil;
We pillaged.
Drilling into the heart of the oceans;
We pillaged.
Burning the forests to create concrete jungles;
We pillaged.
Each hill, each valley;
We pillaged.
Wars; ruins and rubble; depressing debris,
And ashes about everywhere. We pillaged.

*

When raping, killing, looting,
And pillaging is a punishable offence…
Why then is pillaging of nature justified…?
I speak softly for They, are listening.
The assassins will be cornered,
The nemesis defeated;
And the day of inevitable retribution will come.

A Tainted Legacy

td1988-137-1

By: rANJEETA nATH gHAI

With tired legs, I began to reach it,
A garden;
Which I hadn’t frequented in a while
Which I knew existed
But now had towers and skyscrapers
Blocking its pristine view.

*

The world in which we live today
Is made up of concrete blocks
Instead of trees. Raped by humans;
Fighting for her honour, nature weeps silently.
The Man has had his bounty
But now the time has come to stop.

*

Blossoms bloom no more. No more birds to sing for us.
The sun peaks; bountiful woodlands
Are fast disappearing.
Long gone are the rainy days
With the smell of fresh earth dancing on the breeze.
All I’m left with is auto fumes and a mask.

*

A hungry traveller;
I protest against man’s avid greed.
Today, I’m scared of the living ghosts
Who treads in the barren valleys and
Crowded concrete streets and towers.
A fire blazes within my heart
Yielding to the unadulterated and enigmatic call of nature.

*

All I desire is beauty in nature’s bounty
But all I see is man’s folly glorified in the headlines.

A Stampede In My Mind

sunset-after-a-storm

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

A tempest,
Of emotions
Exploding up
Like lava
Seeping out through
Every nook and crevice
Of my soul
Showing mercy to none.

*

“Calm down,”
I tell myself
There’s nothing that
Worrying can ever change.
What is to be. Will be.
Whatever happens, will happen for good.
Flutters of insecurities
Must be silenced to be calm.

*

There’re  so many answers,
I’ve been searching for all along,
But freedom only came
When the thinking stopped.
“Don’t think,” I tell myself.
Sit down and rest. Just let it be.
Bruised and analytical
I stop in my tracks wondering…

*

Is it calm after the storm
Or calm before the storm?

Runaway Relationships

broken-heart-burning

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

Day slowly passes
And sometimes she feels so alone
Even with her family at home
Pain…blinding pain; it surges
Through her body like electricity
Crippling her confidence and her beliefs
And, reality is unforgiving.

*

She feels a strange connection towards the words.
The alphabets are now her best friends.
Making her feel special
They make her not want to reach the end.
There is a connection…between her words,
Her thoughts and her real life.
And she knows their love for her is not based on needs.

*

Her brain is now keeping distance
From people who use her just as an option
She has no choice but to accept the decision
As she had been wronged often.
Tonight she realised, as it all fell apart
That they did not entirely belong to her
And that the best days really were the first to flee.

*

Focusing on the pain Mauli, ne’er did you any good.
Ripping your heart open it only caused you constant suffering.
Constantly complaining ne’er did help either.
It only brought in excuses and apologies that poured in abundance
And the same follies oft-repeated after that.
Living in fear of always been taken for granted
You finally take apart the beads off friendship’s string.

Armageddon

big_1-728

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

Actions speak louder than words
And today you proved yourself
To be a small person.
Someone gifted
With a mean minded mentality.
Bludgeoning me with reckless words
You proved beyond doubt
That you are not worth my time.

For the mean words that spew forth
From your heart: a bitter place,
In the long run, you’ll surely pay.
As a witness to the harsh realities
One thing I can say for sure
Crushing one’s spirit is not fun and game.
Tainted wisdom; delusion and overconfidence;
Can wreak its havoc in the most surprising ways.

Bear in mind. O you conceited fool…
kARMA:* the wheel that makes the world go round
Has interesting ways to serve what you deserve.

cvx3olvwiaab3cd

* Karma (Sanskrit: कर्म; IPA: [ˈkərmə] ( listen); Pali: kamma) means action, work or deed; it also refers to the spiritual principle of cause and effect where intent and actions of an individual (cause) influence the future of that individual (effect).

A Few Wounds and A Pinch Of Salt

download

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

A few wounds;
A pinch of salt;
And a little pain.
But it’s time not to mourn.
The etched memories,
Will serve as a reminder,
Never to trust you again.

*

One eye behind my head,
The other facing forward.
Watching out for stray daggers,
While focusing on the future.
Today, I have rearranged the people in my life,
As per their own rules and standards
And my priority in their lives.

*

Words and excuses were always
Arranged and rearranged.
To avoid standing by my side
When I needed them the most.
Manipulating words; to portray alternate meanings
With no promise of anything.
Now, they and their words are beyond the capacity to hurt me.

*

As long as we continue to deny
What is clear to our naked eye
We shall be used and taken for granted.
With a sudden change
Today, everything has been rearranged.
Negativity; I didn’t want it to be permanent
so I packed my things up; moved out of their lives.

*

….I’m still slowly moving along.
But with people who care…

Happiness Is Artificial

download1

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

My smiles; manufactured
To your liking,
Funny how it appeases your ego.
You thrive on your moments
Of artificial power
Which in fact is a mirage
As I long for moments of silence.

*

My independence
Damaged beyond repair.
The glow in my eyes,
Lit by an artificial happiness.
Sick of you nagging like an old hag,
Sarcastic jibes and hurling insults,
Sometimes, I prefer my solitude to your company.

*

Happiness;
Unrestricted romances;
Contentment;
Bliss;
All are fake acts,
Of getting through life.
To justify an ill-thought decision.
