Take your things into your dream
It is not about running in life
Maybe clockwise is wiser than you
Ends is not about how you rotate it to fit you
To think every single step in your dream
In the aims you pursuing in life
Mocking bird is more popular than a singer
Every flag has its pole and no need to go rushly
The numbers are just your guide
If you believe, it just about moving
Mistake is mistakes even you turn it into justice
Except you are never look at your walls to find you time’s point

LOVE IS A NESTED WING
pebbles in ponds glisten
fish swim over fins christen
love is a nested ring
smart girls stumble upon garden roots
girls in glasses shoo off new shoots
love is a broken thing
he writes her name with quiet fingers
spells her lips with love he brings her
love is a nested wing
Bunnies shan’t nibble new bouncy mates
Bouncers trounce with rakes at gates
love is a tempest thing
market to market to sell fat hogs hearken…his love doesn’t cry
his belted shorts aren’t a bargain…soft saffron in his eyes
love is a forever scented sigh

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
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..
