You are all around me,
From wake to sleep
Holding each inch of my life
Deciding, how my day be
And letting me play with you
A hardest thing, I’ve ever known

You rule my friends and enemies,
If I not pick the right of you
Soon turning my friend to foe,
And vice versa
Also, looking at age and plumping,
That people call, maturity

You around me, never I am impassive
My helping hand in situations,
My strength, my weakness and
What not I owe you ?
You make NICE and KNIFE out of me
To choose which?
Is the only access you give

But whatever,
I love you like
I never loved any
And I promise,
I will love you,
Like I never love any..

And what are you?
You are my “Words”

Words Are Mine

Words Are Mine short poem

Blood was in season, on your hands. A staged encounter mauling the clouds. Into a hare, you put the lead with a roar of gun and sun wants his share. Beneath the honours lies the guilt of a ravaged moon.

Words short poem

They say words are powerful, Coz they are both helpful and harmful. Kind words are inspirational, But unkind are no motivational. Words have power to inspire you, They light a spark that no one can do. Words make you cry
