The Suffragettes….(Happy Mother’s Day)

She cried out of her senses

Sheer despair, beaming at its hinges

Shedding her thoughts and beliefs

Resting in her mind’s deepest crevices!

With every drop, inching out attached negativity

Spreading thin, creeping riddled sensitivities

Cleansing out the coloured palettes

Years of depressed feministic rights and fates

Blooming on with the beautiful suffragettes!

Dedicated to Mother daughter suffragettes: Christabel and Emmeline Pankhurst


Looking on that lonely path
Shrouded darkness leading to an unaltered mark
Is this what’s left?
The deadly bitterness of sweet aftermath!

Distant footsteps, nearing each heart beat
Growing louder, this fleeting echo
Nothingness accompanying these feet
Stopped static right in front of me!

Feeling sight, glaring bright
Yet, darkness surrounding free
Instilling a cold shiver
Beginning an uneven still fright!

The Quarrel!

Bring out those unsolicited claims
Witness in your heart pretentious gains
Blowing worthiness of splendour and gold
Tell me this isn’t true or revoltingly untold!

Say ye, thee wise men
Born into the stressful messy den
Unfold thy lids, covered with years of dust
Belong to this song, make no precipitating fuss!

Rush thee now, whistle on fours
Turn that wind dial, hush then some more
Terror draw you out of your circle
Enter my square, begin now that ultimate quarrel!

Intelligence being!

The search has just begun
The find of an intelligent being
To interact with and be part of the scene!

Wishing on a rare kind of star
To humour and bring out the hidden dark!

Waiting for the magnanimous universe
To select, delete, investigate and uncurse!

A graze of good fortune, in much abundance
Droplets of good luck on this prance
Filled with stupendous hope and lit up darts
Giving a firm but gentle nuance!

Worries aside, fear and expectations by the side
Extremely good thoughts and focus in mind
The skies are looking positively clear
Brimming full of my endless cheer!

The Complicity

The complicities of love
Laid bare emotions
Fulfilment of devotion
Enriching dormant dead imagination!

Intricately binding at every pore
Feelings of astonishing galore
Ring in the new, lovely dew
Enlisting joy as one of the many few!

Picture perfect at a glance
Try it then, take a seldom chance
Feel not barred nor battered nor inflicted
Ending may vary, worth it even if restricted!

Promises and vows
Rich in binding thy very now
Open to the merge, souls conflicted
Bear this in mind for when indicted!
