I am with You

Passing by through the paths of yours
Flooding my mind with memories of yours
Smile with a lump in my throat
A single place yet so much did it denote
Observing it pass in front of eyes
With hopes and promises under the blue skies
That place being a signal to live for self
And memories magnifying my love for self
Bound to some ties and knots
Yet they didn’t move out of my thoughts
Guarding myself with a boundary
Though i could sense that feel soundly
And when you find yourself stuck with no clue
Just whisper to self that “I’m with you”

The River…

Coming up with the next guest post and apologies because I’ve really really delayed it a lot!! This poetry is by amazing writer Pamela Jessen…

Photography by- LifeCapturedinLens

I stand on the edge of a river

The water runs clear and quite deep
I take a step in, and it’s so cold
And my balance is hard to keep
I fight to stay upright and standing
Falling is not in my plan
I step further into the river
Away from the safe shore and sand
This river is my Chronic Pain
And I’m tackling it, one step at a time
It flows hard and tries hard to claim me
It moves with no rhythm or rhyme
But I’m stronger than I first appear
And I fight hard to stay on my feet
I wade deeper in to it, the battle is on
And my victory is going to be sweet
The river will always be flowing
but I simply won’t turn away
I’ll battle this enemy daily
And emerge as the winner each day
Up to my waist, or my neck
I refuse to give in to the rage
I dunk my head under and come up for air
I feel like I’ve turned a new page
No river around can defeat me
I’ve proven it time after time
So when I stand on the edge of a river
I know that my life will be fine.

The End is Near…

Coming up with the next guest post. Here’s an amazing piece by talented poet Mudita.

The End Is Near

Image credits: pexels.com

As the time to depart nears by,
Heavy drops of memories roll off my eye.
As this chapter of my life is closing
The time wheel is rolling
Flashback of the times i had
The good ones and the bad
And in the blink of an eye,
Its time my shoulders be clad
With a pinch of luggage wrapped
In the heaviest of emotions haphazard.
The reality check has struck
And I feel stuck
with a numb mind and a heavy heart,
It is finally time to part.
My joys and sorrows, the world knows not
Just a handful who always gave a thought.
My gratitude offered-
For all the selfless love poured,
Every bit of help extended,
Each time i was cared for,
And bringing a smile when tears filled my core!

– Mudita

Guest Post 1: You’re not the only one

So finally started with publishing our guest bloggers!! Here presenting a beautiful poem by Miss Uma Marda.

Title: You’re not the only one

People always say,
‘Why always me? ‘
Ask yourself, ‘ Why not you? ‘
Many are suffering through the same,
you just know your side.
So, remember you’re not the only one.

I used to think,
people share their stuff only with me,
never knew, I’m the last one in the queue.
So, remember, you’re not the only one.

Many go through heartbreaks, rejections
and I feel, I’m the only one going through the tough phase,
You just see your tears,
So remember, you’re not the only one.

Everyone has to face ups and downs,
Everyone have their own challenges,
I feel I’m the only one, who is hopless,
But, remember, you’re not the only one.

Things will change, time will change,
There’s no point in thinking I’m the only one,
Cause, people will change and their priorities too.
So, remember you’re not the only one.

Many shares their experience,
while many avoid to speak about it,
That doesn’t mean, you’re the only sufferer,
You never know about others, and
you feel alone and helpless,
So, remember you’re not the only one.

None knows the Real You

Your mind comprising thoughts enormous
Wishing to shout through silence within you
But timid soul never dared to
Because none knows the real you

World around you eager to judge
Your feels percieved only by a few
But fragile soul never expressed
Because none knows the real you

They speak, you listen each time
Though your words weren’t so new
But receptive soul never voiced
Because none knows the real you

The introvert within you so silent
And that extrovert planet makes you blue
But stonehearted soul never bothered
Because none knows the real you

In their lives, you act as an enigma
About whose essence, they had no clue
But your soul never let them fetch
Because they never knew the real you

A Tinge of Haikus #2 -By my guests!

Hey there fellas! And this my final guest post of the “Poetry Month”. These are the beautiful Haikus written by my guest writers. Thank you so much for making my post more wonderful by your submissions. You guys are truly amazing writers.

Lovely yet lonely
Stood the Rose in garden
Thorn being companion

Did I just wake up
From dream so bad that numbed me
Forever to freeze in time


Haikus I read
Images painted in my head
With words said


Heart is bud
Brain being a beautiful flower
What you choose?

-Riyansh Sharma

Walking in moonlight
How many human minds see
And share these heavens


You inspiring soul,
Spreading warmth of your words,
Within and around

-Pooja Nair

“Small, short bursts of prose?”
Yes, delightfully succinct.
Nods. “Clearly brilliant”

Feeling through your eyes.
Chasing the inspiration.
Writing it through mine

-Susi Bocks

Nature is a best lover
Love is same for all world over
we are fighting over caste

-Yashashree Agashe

Summon the world
Boasting in their own might
Showing your shine


And now I dedicate this haiku to all the above writers appreciating their initiative!

Thou possess spark within self
Know thy powers and show the world
Pen can be strength symbol

Keep Writing!

Guest blog- A poem by Azzurra Nox

As I had mentioned in my post My Poetic Heart , I’ve started accepting guest poems. And I got truly amazing response. One such poem is by Azzurra Nox.

About Author: Born in Catania, Sicily, Azzurra Nox has led a nomadic life since birth. She loves horror movies, cats, and a good rock show. She dislikes Mondays and chick-flicks. MY AMERICAN NIGHTMARE – Women in Horror Anthology was a YA Short Stories bestseller on Amazon. She curates the lifestyle blog: https://theinkblotters.com/ You can find her on Twitter @diva_zura

Title: Paper Monsters

A black Sicilian veil cloaks my ashen thoughts.

He tastes like half-eaten candies,

Licorice and cinnamon.

Cobblestone streets reflect minuscule paper monsters.

My heart is filled with a fiery lava, the kind that

Explodes from Etna in the sky at night.

I’ve been waiting for his return.

I’m afraid that soon the fire in my heart

Will fade and become an ice black.

Almond blossoms adorn my bed,

His last words echo in my brain and I writhe


My body aches for his touch—

I just want to break a little….

I dream of becoming a tragic heroine

A Giovanni Verga character incarnate.

This is how you draw a broken heart:

Dip your fingers in blood and don’t

Hesitate to botch the final project.

His image hovers over me like

A storm cloud in April…

Ever present but translucent

As the flesh fades to cold coal.

-Azzurra Nox

A Tinge of Haikus #1

Haikus are a form of tiny poetries of three lines. First line consists of 3 words, 2nd line 5 words and 3rd line 3 words again. So that’s 3-5-3. There’s also a combination of 5-7-5. Haikus show a connection between all the three lines which means three lines of a single Haiku completes it entirely!

As I had mentioned in my post “My Poetic Heart” that I’m learning about different types of poems, haiku is one of them and so thought of trying a few Haikus!

Beautify yourself more
Wear your, pretty smiling face
Conquer each day

Walking in moonlight
Staring above at boundless universe
Shining dreamful eyes

I looked at the sky
And saw those stars smiling at me
Though my Moon never turned up

I grew colder
To all criticism and fakeness
Was tagged ‘stonehearted’

You say richness is crucial
You say beautiful face and body is important
I say you’re just Materialistic

Deep down in silent waters
With wide eyes and heart she immersed
The Death God was here
Beautiful green meadows
Lying down under sky’s blanket
That’s my wish

My Poetic Heart- World Poetry Day

A Poetic heart of mine sways swiftly

To my own fantasy world every hourly

Poems run through my every nerve and vein

Healing my body’s every possible pain

I’m really sorry for interrupting our ‘Changing Abstracts’ series, but this write-up of mine was much needed as it is my tribute to all the amazing Poets and their beautiful Poetries.

Today, that is 21st March is declared as World Poetry Day by UNESCO. Speaking about history of Poetries in short, the ancient poems were in the form of songs and hymns. It is said that poetries used to exist Before Christ as well. But most of the evidences say that Poetries originated during 14th century. Most of Indian literature including Vedas and many more Sanskrit verses are in poetic form. Nowadays poetry verses are in different forms like Haikus, Sonnets, Limerick and many more.

There is this beautiful literature book “The History of English Poetry” by Thomas Warton published in 18th century which describes about poetic literature. There are infact many movies as well which are based on the theme of ‘Poems’. And if at all you might have seen this movie “The Dead Poets Society”, you might realize how wonderfully a poem affects human life. Poetry lovers can definitely relate to this.

I remember when I was kid and we had Languages in our school as subjects. During those days poems were something I loved the most! And my love for poetry can never ever abate. I wrote my very first poem during my 2nd year of graduation which became my very first blog post ‘Life is too short’ And never stopped after that. It’s been more than 2 years I’m writing poems. And I’m glad that I’ve started learning different forms of poetries through different resources.

On the request of audience, I would like to put up top 10 poetry write-ups and really sorry for being late:

1) Just a smile

2) I don’t belong here

3) The ICU deathbeds

4) The Cloud Palace

5) Parents- My life’s core

6) Oh My Diary!

7) The Musical Body

8) You’re within me

9) Gracias

10) My Angel

To all the poem lovers, I’m gonna have poetry guest blogging during the month of April. All poetry bloggers are invited to send their Poems on my email ID natashatungare@gmail.com. If you have your interesting story of how you started writing poetry please do share :))
