Bereavement

I usually don’t post my hindi compositions here. This is my second attempt. For my global friends I am including the English translation for easy read. Let me know your thoughts below. If you approve it, I will post more in the future. 🌸💛

See what your bereavement has done,
When we were together
I was just a speck of dust,
but now that you have left
a poet is what I have become.

देख तेरे इश्क़ का जोर
क्या से क्या बना दिया
जब साथ थे तब कहाँ मशहूर थे
जो बिछड़े तो शायर बना दिया

Impetuous Soul

She was impetuous,
always in a rush,
she never believed to rest and pause,
and her careened laced moves,
world seldom approved,
but her befuddled mind
never stopped her from soaring in blind

Never once was she rattled,
and every time she fell,
she collected her soul
and moved on to the next battle

Lest

Her spunk laced mind lest her temper,
and like a cannonball,
she dangerously flirted with his insane mind

Confronted him with grit,
braved his stance
with her furious glance,
and after an arduous battle,
and a long standing wait,
she erased the fears that engulfed his mind

A New Me

I was a ruinous soul,
a savage,
feared by all.

I am unsure when,
you crawled into my world,
and encroached my closely guarded den.
You caressed my wounds
and nurtured my soul,
tamed my anger
and showed me the blissful knoll.

Then one day I fortuitously saw my face,
and I failed to recognize my own image
I stood awestruck unsure what to do
a new world beaconing
a new me raring to go
