A BRIDE’S REVERIE


The bell struck five………………………..

As the voice echoed through the streets

A gush of excitement chilled my spirit

I was wide awake………from the deep slumber

Shedding the last remnants of a sweetdream

Its my wedding day

Within a few hours……………

My angel will be holding my hands before the Holy Spirit

It seems a life time

since I went to school for the first time,

wearing short pinafore,

Holding my mum’s hand

And screaming all the way down

My dad getting me dressed,

Murmuring about my laziness

The sound thrashing from him

For getting drenched all over in rain

And the thousand kisses he gave

On seeing my tear-stained face


Still I remember the day-I was just thirteen then

When I thought of ending my life

On seeing my poor marks in physics

The pranks we did on school……….oh! they are unforgettable


And the day I got a love letter

I was thrilled beyond words-

Though I didn’t show it on my face


The ecstasy that filled me

When my sir praised my poem with wide open eyes

And said……

“You’ve got an exuberant imagination”


Hours that flew like seconds,

in the company of my friends-my sweet pies

the love and dreams we shared,

the tears and smiles we shed..............



The ever-green trees, election campaigns and the lover’s corner

of our college campus………….


And now I’ve reached here-the next stage of my life is going to start

Wedding bells will be ringing

Blessings will be showered upon us


Finally……the moment will come……when I should loose

The tight grip on my dads hand…………..

I’ll be snatched away from them…


Tears welled up my eyes

I started to weep terribly.

A tight embrace broke my reverie

It was my dad and mum

They were smiling,a radiant smile

Eclipsing all my sorrows

And as they guided me out from the room

I realized

They’ll never be away from me


‘cause without them

I won’t have a soul……..



WAITING FOR THE FINAL JUDGEMENT


Darkness…………..Darkness everywhere

The rain lashing against the willows

The wind blowing with all its might

The owls hooting madly

This place seems so creepy!!

As the darkness envelops my spirit and surroundings

I stand alone……….faraway from my land

Not even a single firefly to show me the way

Not even ray of hope to lighten my worries

I realize………….now………….I’m in hell

Leaving my earthly life,

I’ve reached hell

The ghastly place of punishment……

Blood sucking vampires flew past me

Warning me of an unknown fate

Fate???Do I-a mere shadow of me-have a fate?

I need someone,oh god,I needa company

Never leave me here,never isolate me in this devilish moor

Beat me,whip me,put me on fire

But never leave me here

I scream at the top of my voice

Heaven forbid!!i’ve lost my voice

I’ve lost my face,my body

I’ve lost my existence…………

I kneel before you my lord

If only I could turn back time

I would have erased all my mistakes

I plead your mercy my lord,

dont leave me here

I wait for your judgement-the final judgement.
