The Value of Things

Poem “The Value of Things” by Drisha Sehgal

They say “you don’t value the things you have today”,
Yes, I agree with them,
For all the things I’ve lost,
And seen them others possess,
For all the things I wish I could get back,
And never knew it when I had them.
Now I look forward,
For someone else,
To do what I was supposed to do,
To be who I was supposed to be,
To have all my lost possessions.
There’s nothing I can do but wail and watch,
Till time heals all the wounds it gave,
And with a final blow which knocks me down,
Tears all the dreams and makes no sound,
I lose the grip of all my hope,
And walk with a bent head,
To my so-called home.

Gone Forever

Poem “Gone Forever” by Abhishek Jain

When I thought of you,
I thought of beauty coloring my mind
With the pastels of joy.

When I looked at you,
I saw an angel walking around me
Fading all my strains away.

N when I smelt your hair,
My nerves filled with your fragrance.
N when I kissed your lips,
All sicknesses washed away.

Now I feel so numb, nothing can I feel,
Coz it was you, the one that made me heal.
Now I feel so alone, can’t forget all those nights,
Coz it was you, the one to bear all my lights.
Now I feel so dead, nothing makes me feel alive,
Coz it is you, the one I wish I can bring back to life.

Why have you closed your eyes
And gone forever?
Why have you left us both alone
And gone forever?

The Lost Battle

Poem “The lost battle” by Rushikesh

Poem “The lost battle” by Rushikesh

I tried to forget her, but how I would?
She was there, beautiful, and here my heart holding all it could,
It always happened with me, whenever I tried to forget her, I never could.

Something was there which changed my open attitude-behavior into shyness in front of her,,
Whenever I saw her, I was at loss of words,,
Not only my heart but even my soul loved her,,
Don’t know why I couldn’t resist the love for her;

Whatever it was, it gave pleasure in pain,,
How can anyone say, in love, there is no gain,,
I know my love will not go in vain;

The friendly teasing which made me blush,,
don’t know why she is still my crush,,
But my feelings were so much in rush,,
I couldn’t even speak when she did with slush;

I don’t know now what to do,
Regret being so introvert,,
And now I cannot stop thinking about her, I had this hard feeling in my gut,,
I don’t know how to end this thing,,
To express each emotion, it would take me everything.
