A GUEST POST “I’ve Always Told You” by “PRATIK KIRVE FROM PUNE

http://crazytruefacts.wordpress.com

 I’ve Always Told You

No, I’m not misunderstanding anything. 
You have always been a free-spirited, 
Straight forward, eloquent, and articulate. 
And I miss that, I’ve always told you.

You always spoke your mind, 
You talked whatever you wanted,
Without thinking who thinks what about you.
And I admire that, I’ve always told you.

So, if you are not saying, ‘I miss you,’ 
What do you expect me to believe? 
I believe you don’t miss me. 
And I distaste that, I’ve always told you.

When I confronted you for being mean to me, 
All you said was, you’re misunderstanding me.
Then, you began giving explanations. 
And I hate that, I’ve always told you.

You can’t expect me to realize on my own, 
If you’re not saying it out loud as you always did,
I think, either you don’t miss me or you’ve changed.
And I realize that, I’ve always told you.

You’ve always been vocal to express love to me,
We had to part ways, but never resented each other,
Then why not to be vocal about missing me?
And I resent that, I’ve always told you.

This means only one thing, you’ve changed.
You’re not the person I fell in love with. 
The distance, the new environment changed you. 
And I believe that, I’ve always told you.

And even if you want to give explanation for that, 
You better keep it to yourself. 
I don’t expect explanations from unknown people.
And I resolve that, I’ve always told you.

Whatever the excuse or explanation you have,
I just want to tell you, I’ve always missed you.
Your place in my life is irreplaceable. 
I know that, you know that, 
And I don’t have to tell you that.

SOMETHING ABOUT HIM IN HIS OWN WORDS:-

Hi, Dear Reader!!
I am Pratik Kirve From Pune, India. An Avid Reader, Cool-minded Introvert, who always sees the world around him from own point of view & gets lost in his own world! I like daydreaming & believing that it’s possible.
The purpose of my writing is to tell people that they are not alone. There are people who feel the same way you felt when you were going through the same situations I portray in stories and poems. I felt the loneliness for almost a year. And I tried to escape from reality in that period through stories and poetry. So, I started writing personal stories as well as stories of people who have gone through a struggle to give strength to others.
Besides poetry and stories, I like football. I am a huge fan of Manchester United. I love drinking cold coffee. I also love listening to music, especially Eminem and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

 

 

“Fairies Speak about such things”by: “KAE BUCHER” from CALIFORNIA

http://bucketsonabarefootbeach.com

Fairies Speak about such things

What are heavens made of that some were made to sigh?
And others made to laugh at them and make girls wish to die?
Fairies speak about such things…

Winds of wingless angels watch untouchable girls huddle
Dark clouds shove little girls into ugly mud-bled puddles
Fairies cry about such things…

Wheat colored girls sip rainbows they tie their hair in ribbons
Listen to their pretty songs and follow them to kittens
Fairies forget about such things…

White gold cotton wraps her chocolate colored bliss
She is an evening full of white stars, a cocoa covered kiss
Fairies sing about such things

Dusky Cinderella washes white rice, white veined flowers
Prince Charming picks Black Diamond for his special hour
Fairies sing and dance…. whisper love songs… I grow wings..

karma comes around by a Guest poet: “KARAM KAUR”

Karma Comes Around

Rush of feelings deep inside
Where will life take me on this ride?
The plans unraveling by universe,
Waiting for blessing that will lift the curse.

Hold on, hold your disbelief, 
It will happen, no need to grief. 
Your time is near don’t give up,
Cards will show, regarding buildup.

Do your deed, and move on to the next
Don’t wait around for the jewels in chest. 
Least expected, good Karma will come around 
Inner peace attained, never again bound

POEMS BY A GUEST POET : “LONE GIRL STANDING”

http://lonegirlstandingblog.wordpress.com

DESOLATE

Was I so wrong?
Was I so bad?
Lost everything
Everything I had

Is it this world?
Is it just me?
Terrible I feel
When I just want to be

Feelings pour out
But words stay in
Witness to my fault
Silent witness to my sin

For yes, I have sinned
Wrong that I was
I was at fault
Believing in lost cause

Had hope in people
Had faith in them
I was so naive
Only I am to blame

I have learned now
Now I finally know
I will be on my own
It will always be so

******************

HAVE I LOST YOU

Have I lost you
When I can’t see
but sense your lingering
presence around me?
Have I lost you?

Have I lost you
When I hear everyday
your loud, boisterous laugh
while silent, brooding I lay?
Have I lost you?

Have I lost you
When I feel your soft kiss
on my tearful face
filling me with peaceful bliss?
Have I lost you?

Have I lost you
When in your scent I drown
as my eyes fill with love
and wipe that intense frown?
Have I lost you?

Have I lost you
When I remember this all
that you still live in my heart
will come rushing at my silent call?
Have I lost you?

**********************************

DO

I do what I love
Doing what gives me pleasure
I enjoy process
And every moment I treasure
Smiling I face the odds
Troubles I heads on greet
Defeating them all
Makes success twice as sweet
Do the thing you love
And you’ll forget all the sweat
You’ll come out a winner
Nothing you’ll regret.

****************************

THE SEAMLESS OCEAN OF LIFE

The seamless ocean of life ahead
the mysteries beyond which I cannot see,
but that treasure of knowledge is within reach
Just how to reach depends on me.

The ocean is big, so is my thirst
Will ever my curiosity let me be?
The water is ready for me to drink
Just when to drink depends on me

Thousand questions running in my mind
The ocean’s depth holds the answer, I see
If I want I can hear them whispering
Just when to hear depends on me.

Who am I, whose this body is?
What are oceans, rivers and the sea
If I want to know about it
He who knows it all will tell me.

NUANCE OF LIFE-A GUEST POETRY BY “KARAM”FROM USA

http://ancientbeautyblog.wordpress.com

Nuance of Life

In the smoke of life, I stand!

Hazy and unknown objects approach,

I tackle with, as they attack

Some are sweet-bees and some vicious bats.

One side an angelic light is seen,

It pulls me towards it, and forces.

The other side is a dark one,

It shows me love and mesmerizes.

Which path should I choose?

Nuance of voice, Nuance of intentions,

Difficult to distinct value each has.

Life will be a struggle throughout,

Between temptations and righteous deeds.

Choose a side and follow that path.

Standing in the middle looking confused

Soon the voices will go mute.

Guest post Poetry:-“YEARNING HEART”

http://ancientbeautyblog.wordpress.com

Yearning Heart

I will have you in front of me one day
Smile, look at you smile back, and shy away,
Sit you down and just gaze at you.
I will be on the seventh sky, sorrow no longer true. 

Till that day arrives there is this yearning. 
A lamp of absence that keeps burning.
Longing for your touch that ignites fire
Our souls entwined is my desire.
Becoming one is something of fantasy, 
It can be possible if you can be my ecstasy. 

Come to your beloved as I adorn,
Wear garments with jewels, never worn. 
I will embrace you with all the love there is
We will chatter whatever your heart says.

Guest Poetry from PARAS “MY LAST WORDS”

https://moseyinpoesy.wordpress.com/

LAST WORDS

Youre familiar with the face of my darkness,
Shadows and shades of my brokenness.
My most beloved, forgive me
For the hurt I inflicted upon you.
I
m scared as you know my whole
And it terrifies me to witness
How effortlessly you fill all my gaps.
But I`m more an addict than a slave
To my melancholy.
Narcotics induce numbness, not to sorrow,
For it augments my cherophobia.
Let yourself; the light of my life, be absent,
And let life escape and abandon death with me.
My last thought; I ponder if I offered enough
Happiness to surpass the measure of suffering and dolours.

Reach for my heart as I reach for your hand
For I dont possess the divinity
To touch your heart or your enlivening virgin kiss.
Through the penance and amercement, my soul,
Will elope with what I never had; hope
To find what I never felt underneath; light.
And someday when I return intact,
I
ll wrap you in my absolute warmth
And shower you with my lit and free joy and love
