Restart 

*SPECIAL POST*

Do read. This one is straight from the heart. Hope you like it. 


What is wrong with me

That I crave to smile again 

A smile that touches my eyes 

A smile that isn’t a masquerade

 

That I want to sleep 

Peacefully on my mother’s lap

Her soothing voice a remedy 

To all my childish problems that children have. 


What is wrong with me

If I want to breathe again 

Inhale the fresh, crisp air 

Exhale the misery and the pain


Take me back in time 

When I was made to believe

That life will forever be simple 

And that people never leave 


All that is wrong with me

Is that I have a weak heart 

I’ve come a long way in life 

A race that I can’t restart.

Amused-Bemused 

Time staring me right in the eye, my entire life floating in front of me like a terrifying yet enchanting nightmare. There was good and bad, happiness and gloom and everything else that makes life a beautiful conundrum. Though I could make changes, stop time and alter it, I did nothing. I just stood there- wonderstruck, amused at how far I’ve come, bemused that there’s a long way to go.

Happy Diwali 

The festival of light, love and joy arrives 

May the lights always brighten our lives, 

May the love destroy everything in this world that evil and hateful,

May our souls be joyous for as long as we breathe.

-Namrata

Wishing all my friends and followers a very Happy Diwali. ✨

Raise A Toast 

​”Cheers”, I say, 

“To friends who became strangers

And strangers who became friends

To the lover who now hates me 

And the haters who now love me 

To everything I’ve left behind

And everything that has come my way

To the bitter yesterday

And a better today.”

-Namrata 

Light Years Away 

​Dark, serene, ceaseless 

Gazing at the blackness 

I see the stars 

Smiling at me

The bright, white moon 

Whispers my name

For the sky 

And the world 

That lies beyond 

Is where my soul belongs

It takes a lifetime to return 

Return to where 

I’ve come from

Gifted with this life 

Only to die

And to be re born

As a new being

In another universe 

I’m here, only to return 

Return to where 

I’ve come from

To the place 

That I call “Home”. 

Namrata
