For She Hopes…

Lying on her back,

As still as death,

Hoping for sleep to knock her door,

And doze her along.

For she wants to drift the focus away,

From the everlasting pain that clenched her body,

To the worldly pleasures,

The focus will enhance the pain, she assumed.


The Pain,

Unknown guest to her,

For she cannot categorize the reason behind,

But continues to lives with it.


To her dismay, Love showed at her door.

For He knew the only reliever she could ever get will be his.

He gave her all the hopes she dreamt of,

All the strengths she longed,

And all the truth she ever kept.

Finally she grinned at the thought of finding something worthwhile.


Within the glimpse of her hope,

Life stuck her.

She illuminated all the paths to

Pain, Sleep and to Love,

But no one came to her rescue.

Dread heartedly,

She laid on her back wondering,

About the nights when Pain was her only companion,

The days where sleep was her immortal being,

The memories Love laid.


Immerse in these shadows,

As still as a statue,

Contented with way these took a part of her,

Up till the time,

Believe” made her way through the door.





Heavenly Ride!

Sliding down the curvy road,

She makes a sudden right and then swirls around the way.

Her strangled hair moves the way out to reach her eyes,

But the speed cannot control the enthusiasm within.

This is the first time her mother has allowed to ride the bicycle out of her sight.


She horns at every turn.Waves Rajesh Bhaiya,who visits their place for ironed clothes.The way he hops on to his cycle, and fleet through the way, inspires her.

Heartwarming Rajesh Bhaiya waves her back.

She crosses plenty of automobile,felt sorry at the sight.Down casted with all things they were missing out on.

The breath of fresh air while riding,

Quenching on the foot pedals,

The way she can feel her freedom,

And the joy of not jammed inside the cuboid.

She heavy heartedly made way through the traffic, and reach home safe.


Her mother waiting for her prompts up asking about her trip. She vigorously tells her all about her joys and other people loss. Her mother jokes if she would ever get a ride on her bike. With a big “Yes”, she attains her Eureka moment!

Amid of all these fanatical talks, her father honks and tell them to hurry up otherwise they will miss the train to their homeland. They plunk the luggage in the car. Her mommy turns around to confirm asks her, “Sab rakh liya na?kuch reh toh nahi gaya ?” (Kept everything? Is anything left?)

With sobbing eyes, she replied, “Yes mommy, Everything but FREEDOM!”
