How Did I Got Here?

So, I decided to take up the OctPoWriMo Challenge once again. I am not sure if I can do all 31 poems or not but I wanted to get back to writing and this is the best opportunity.

There is a kind of vacuum and lot of unwanted stress due to mundane things of life and I want some smiles back which can come back with more positivity than I already have so I thought I will write more. Writing is cathartic. Its passionate. Its love. Its happiness.

I am writing after ages and somehow I have forgotten to make verses and have got more comfortable with random thoughts. As I say this I am smiling, for I used to always say I even think in rhymes. Just how life changes right ? So, lets do this and I hope this make sense and I hope after this challenge I can get back that writing tempo.

So see you around 🙂

Day I 

I sometimes sit still and wonder
At the serenity that encloses
I wonder if this it is, and ask
How did I get here?

I remember the struggles and pain
The scars are now all so gone
But I know the pain, and wonder
How did I get here?

Life is at a standstill again
I have a long way to reach zenith
But I am glad at being where I feel
How did I get here?

Love and happiness defined my world
And then material is how I found bliss
I am sane, but fidgety, about it all
How did I get here?

I still want the wings to fly across
Wet my feet in the sprinkles of magic
I have wishes unfulfilled and yet
How did I get here?

I detest the face in my mirror
I look at the extra inches and cry
Losing esteem is not my beauty, yet
How did I get here?

I let the enemies get the best of me
I get the opinions overpower my being
I be the best, and feel the worst,
How did I get here?

Engulfing darkness is because unrest
I do not know what I seek next
I want the skies I was flying in once
How did I get here?

I wipe out the tears that are tying
I comb those hairs and line my eyes
A kiss to my being is needed I guess
How did I get here?

As the temperatures start to dip again
I revisit dreams of last year again
And see your reflections smiling at me
How did I get here?

I make that promise of a lifetime again
Of happiness, joy and love sprinkled
I believe in all that I have to find
And romance another route to there

So I can say

I am glad I got here

With you
With myself
And life quota
Of kisses.

Autumn Dream


The leaves of autumn
Smile with the sun
That rise for warmth
Like a love season.

The birds chirp together
As silent lake glitters
Growing hope in silence
In a painful heart.

I once again wish
Like a movie unfolds
For desires are born
Of love catching us.

I seek a face
Some smiles, some talks.
A stranger, turning dear
Fragrant coffee, beating hearts.

Conversations that fulfill
From Rumi to Yeats
Some music got mixed
Like mind just mirrored.

Planned we not all
Yet got we all
Siting aside, we promised
To be ‘we’ soon.

Suddenly a breeze strikes
Woken up was I
From that smiling dream
The bench just gave.

P.S. This post is part of the October Poetry Challenge where we are to write 31 poems in 31 days. Off late writing had taken a backseat, and I am quite uninspired to compose too.  So I hope to write as much I could this month. Will try to write everyday but let’s see. I just wish by the end of the month, I see a progress in my poetry writing skill.  Hopefully you people keep coming everyday to encourage and inspire me to complete this challenge 🙂

Also, thank you Lady Nimue for telling me about this challenge.
