Isolation in Rain

The scent of rain, On a cold late evening, Taking away the mundane, Giving her a new meaning. As the first drops kiss, Her beautiful face, All pointless thoughts dismissed, For a sweet happy escape. Feeling like a novice, An experience like never before, Cold, wet, tired, and exhausted, Precious moments, she wanted more. A... Continue Reading →

A Happy Heart

Flawless skin, And a perfect face, Look what is deep within, Is the heart in the right place? Not too tall, Or not too short, Ready to wear high heels, But are the feet on the right spot? Dressed to perfection, Slender and thin, Does size matter, Hiding the real beauty therein? But can a... Continue Reading →

The Breakaway

Bound from all sides, Feeling like a prison, Stuck in the past, Take a break and listen. Time does not stop, But by the hour you heal, To survive in the now, So get up and deal. You need to look ahead, Losing what is left behind, Convey what is left unsaid, As a new... Continue Reading →

In the middle of nowhere, Just me in the outdoors, Life seems to get better, Even though it has hit a pause. © 2021... Continue Reading →

Hakuna Matata

A mantra in life, Like a magical potion, To give high five, And heal when broken. Hakuna Matata, Says Timon and Pumbaa, A signal to the brain, "No Worries" to avoid the crumble. Waiting for the inevitable, Why waste the day, Build for the creditable, Go out and pave the way. © 2021 Shreya Shah

The Unsaid Refusal

Afraid to give an answer, You simply stay silent, Hoping your expression transfers, What you want to convey in private. Nervous laughter, And fidgety hands, Don't they count as a factor, You haven't given consent? Choosing to ignore the signs, They take the step ahead, It is time you stand ground, To speak what is...
