Lovers Flower

Shalini Samuel
Kanyakumari

On the bed of roses, she is the pretty rose
Clad in a velvet blue gown, she is his muse
He plucks the stars to decorate her angel house
Gifting her a flower from heavens garden
He goes on his knees
Oh maiden! You have won my heart
This everlasting flower, I brought for thee
From the deepest ocean of my heart
Its lovers flower, let you know its greatness
Akin a chameleon, it changes hue, sans Photoshop
The emotions of the owner, it reflects
Let it be yours, from today,
The pink flower changed red in her hands
Are you scared, queried she holding his hand
She ran towards him comforting his hands
Yes dear, I am afraid of losing you, he smiled
Her eyes expressed love, tears rolled down
Excited of having the best present -she blushed

He let the lovers flower stay locked in our hearts
And our soul mate holds the key to decipher it.


His Ladylove

by dawn, the handsome prince grabs a white rose
if not the day does not pass by
the handsome prince walks over the bridge
if not the day does not pass by
the handsome prince dries his ladylove's attire
if not the day does not pass by
the handsome prince glides through the woods
if not the day does not pass by
the handsome prince drinks his reflection, by the riverside
if not the day does not pass by
the handsome prince jumps over snowy mountains
if not the day does not pass by
the handsome prince feeds his green children
if not the day does not pass by
the handsome prince bathes in the sea
if not the day does not pass by
Bidding goodbye, Sun the white rose gifts himself to earth.
until then the day never passes by for earth, his lady love



Death is a myth

If death was just a disease
You and I are sinners
For burying a million men
In hot sand,  amidst trillion mites.

A million souls cry from beneath
Grieve they, trapped in coffins
Astral travel, they opt for
To come back to their loved ones.

If death was just a disease
Where muscles stop working
A moving doll just loses charge
And we have the medicine to cure

Then,

How life would be easier
I wish the day is near,
Where mortals are just a myth
And immortality becomes reality!

Lets know what we knew for ages
Lets dive into the secrets of sages
You can live forever, if you wish
Your life cannot end in a swish.

Withstand and win

Chanced upon a rock in the midst of the sea
Gave ears to his years of persistence, my accomplice
Never-ending waves loom and thwart his seconds
Crores of silver foam hides his unique distinctiveness
Yet, he stands stable, deep-seated in the bed of calmness
Arise oh ye waves, come and slay me, he dares
Arriving from infinite directions, the waves rejoice
In unison, they hold hands for a loot – a merciless plunder
Striking, again and again, the white caps kill themselves
Revealing the sagacious old rock once again
Azure blue waves do wear him down persistently
Olive green parasites feed on his outer crust
Yet, he endures every trespasses and bully
In the mighty sea of deceits, he thrives as a lonely tavern
Confronting every wave, every foam
He shapes himself resilient than ever,
With a hope of fathering a peaceful serene island.
Be the rock in the midst of the sea, my comrade.



Life in a Hell

Its quite a hell
the sun above
burns everything below

Its quite a hell
When the clouds never appear
and the shades disappear

Its quite a hell
when summer starts
hitting our heads

It quite a hell
when the power goes off
and inverter stops working

Its quite a hell
when you yearn for rain
the sun sucks the last drops

Its quite a hell
when the sky grabs all
but gives back nothing

Its quite a hell
when every day is sunny
and there's no rain

Its quite a hell
when every move is a failure
and there's no success

Its quite a hell
when you have to read a poem
but it gives back no smiles

Its quite a hell
...
because we live in hell
