Her Adversities

The adversities she faced
ripped her faith
drowning her in a ravine
with no respite.

And she,
trapped in her failures
capitulated,
letting fate take control
until that moment

When her heart,
despite her mind’s acquiesce,
leaped forth,
leaving behind her past
to a new world
displaying radiance and brilliance
and reconfirming
that hope indeed is a beautiful thing.

Veritable

She wore her emotions
like a sheet of grass on a barren land,
her tears a veritable first shower
under scorching summer sun
and the petrichor rising slowly
spreading the fragrance
of her distant yore,
yet remain refreshed
in the petals of her eyelids
and the thoughts of her soul

Her Lance

She used a shield to guard her thoughts,
wearing armors to hide her emotions,
and armed with a lance
she projected to be a defiant soul

Yet all the barriers she put forth
dissolves like mist
raising to oblivion
like some insignificant thin vapor
when he appears with his mystic smile

And like some naked soul,
exposed and stark
she surrenders to this thing called love

Your Banal Excuses

I am tired of your banal excuses and the ostensible sincerity you display calling our love beyond the world’s appreciation and yet fail to express a comforting expression of care remaining callous of my yearning verse.

That Easel

She placed the white canvas on the easel on the boulder overlooking the dilapidated house, which she once called a dwelling, trying to recreate the memories she lost in oblivion in living a feigned life
