A Facade of Laughing Bonhomie

e46b8798589b46b04b914c8b1f37f717

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

Behind her facade,
Is a sorrow with reason.
A girl who was filled with,
Insecurities, and sadness.
Emotions; locked and imprisoned,
Like a tiny white-winged dove.

*

Behind her facade,
I know a different person.
Who lives in a hope with dying light,
Looking happy and carefree.
Hiding a boiling, raging love,
Longing to be free.

*

Behind her facade,
Is a well filled deep with tears,
Home to her deepest darkest fears.
And I wish I could spill the sadness,
That threatens to destroy her,
Like storm waters sinks a ship.

*

Behind her facade,
She would always smile.
She would always laugh.
But her eyes void of life,
Voice void of emotions.
And I’m afraid they’ll buy the facade and she’ll drown.

*

Oh Mauli…!!
Don’t you know that you’re too convincing.
It’s time to remove the mask,
You’ve worn all your life.
Let your true self show.
Let the world peep in through the windows of your soul.

…..because all is not bleak.
All is not lost.

Nothing Is Ever Finished

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

I keep your memories
Locked in a box,
Hidden in my heart.
Like you keep
Your love for me,
Hidden in your mind.

*

Incomplete;
Without the piece
You took from me.
Life is a spectrum that exists
Between the black and white.
Grey; being questions that have no answer.

*

Memories of you: forever chasing me.
The key to my heart,
Stolen from me.
I do not believe in the definitive.
Nothing is ever finished…
Until all is said and done.

*

I’m giving up the fight.
As neither can win,
Without another glance behind.
Did I leave some pages empty?
The story lies unfinished…
Trapped in times like before.

….but words that I cannot write
Will echo evermore hereafter.

Break Away From the Cacophony

670dc80b93419451b5d1aadd34afe176

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

Dead to the core; but moving still,
Trying to make a change.
Letting go; breaking down to cry
When adversity strikes.

***

Dragging our feet,
Watching; waiting to hear the siren’s call.
Pushing onward until we find,
The answer to this, inside our mind.

***

We slog ourselves every day,
And attempt to stand tall once again.
Only to face a hundred more problems
Spinning our world around.

***

Dreams:
Life rolls onto a mat like a rolling pin.
Fatigue wringing your body and spirit,
Like a towel and crushing it flat.

***

It not your nemesis,
There’s still hope for you,
If you,
Just hold on tight.

***

Always believe in your dreams,
At least for once in a while.
Make a conscious effort;
Have the will and strength to fight.

***

Be confident, believe in yourself,
Horn your skills.
Live in the present; believe in the future,
Let the mistakes of the past be a stepping stone to success.

***

Dreams do come true
If not often, then at least for once in a while.

The Broken Crown

dwight-dansemacabre-580x391

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

Living in an age
Where being selfish is the norm
Truth is deemed as a lie
And lies are accepted as beliefs.

***

Too worried about their own survival
Guns and knives our allies
None has faith in humanity
Or the will to fix it.

***

Laws are made to be broken
Drugs and narcotics used to escape the pain
Politics in the name of religion
And wars in the name of the nation.

***

Grading in school education won’t help
We don’t need politics and we don’t need wars,
We need to cast out all delusions; radical and insane
And rise against the fears; for coward, we are not…!

Another Bullet Flew By

0b796ef

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

Enlisted
To serve the country
Enthusiasm; zest,
Vitality; dynamism,
A part of his personality.
With no taste for…
Ping Zing Diplomacy,
An officer is born.

*****

Bullets zinging past him, dust flying,
Bound together, they fight.
Back to back,
Brothers from another time.
He doesn’t fight,
Because he hates what’s in front,
But to protect those,
Whom he left behind.

*****

Blisters. Swelling.
Aches and yearning;
He knows not when it will dissipate.
Vivid images
Playing in his mind,
The rushing blood and adrenalin.
Bullets crackling above him,
The war; it will stop one day, right?

*****

But on the court of life,
Paid Media and Human Rights Activists,
Deciding his fate
No competition but allegations;
Again and Again taking pot shots at him.
Accusations searing a black hole across his heart,
And in a moment passing faster than the blinding flash,
Of a supernova; he’s gone… forever.

This is dedicated to the Soldiers and Officers of the Indian Army who are always on the receiving end of the Paid Media and Human Rights Activists.

Temporary Lessons

 

p1060594

By:- rANJEETA nATH nHAI

Concrete rubble,
Scattered beneath my feet.
Vacant Streets;
On the other side of the road.
Into the grove,
I see barren homes that once flourished.
Now stand abandoned; whilst wind swiftly whispers,
Hollowed secrets.

***

An old tree stump.
Aged beyond measure.
Once a towering giant,
Viridescent leaved;
Today; cut with precision.
Incapacitated to no longer grow,
Ragged shards of raw inner wood ,
Now blackened with death.

***

I intently observe,
The grooved bark of a tree,
Next to the stump.
The outreaching tree was,
Proliferated while the other did not due to death.
It grew around that cut,
Which was enough to cause death,
With limbs now outstretched towards the sky.

***

The realization swooshed,
And then swelled into my heart,
These are nothing but,
Temporary lessons….
Circumstances are never same; not forever.
Its mind over matter.
We can either be stumped in our lives,
Or, rise above our problems; cross the barriers of mind; reaching the zenith.

Between Pennies and Sandwiches

helene_khoury_1

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

A mother; a daughter,
A daughter in law; a wife,
A sister; a girlfriend; a lover,
A boss or
An employee…
You can watch her run 
A company
Or a kitchen
With the bread 
Butter, knife or a pen.

***

Sandwiched between,
Both the worlds
Earning pennies; making sandwiches;
Sometimes facing,
Loneliness and ire,
Between two slices,
Of cold reality,
You’ll find…
Different identities of 
A Woman.
