The Bond

Poem “The Bond” by Arpita Sukhwani

You were always my angel, always a star
I never judged you and accepted as you are
I Loved you when you were broken
Always stood by your side when you could never open
You are my sweetest memory, can never be replaced
Your name from my heart can never be erased
I know we went through so many misunderstandings
But were they too intense that you abandoned our bonding?
Even after many years,
My heart skips a beat, each time I hear your name
My eyes drown in tears, and memories flood the brain
The way we danced together, the way we sang together
Without any worries in the middle of nowhere
The care and concern for me in your eyes
Were always my favorite sight
The journey through the innocent you
Always helped me find my inner child
You were the only one I could connect to
The one who would understand me when no one could do
U always made me smile when sorrows surrounded me
And taught me not lose to hope when things never went right
And then reality struck me hard
And I realised, what I mistook for love was just your manly regard
Even now, after these years,
When I lie under the starry night
Our fainted memories again gets imprinted on my mind
I pray to God to bind us together forever With a smile
And then cry myself to sleep every night!

Then Why

Poem “Then Why” by Shivam Yadav
The world is brimming,
Of people so wise.
Where everyone encounters,
the same sunrise.
We keep radiating wisdom,
on veracity of death.
Then why we cry,
on one’s sudden demise?

The daughter, full of flair,
can rule the globe.
The son has got veins,
to lead any mob.
The womb gifted them,
with unique tinctures.
Then why parents clout,
for a government job?

We stare at a girl,
wandering in shorts.
We praise the society,
for refurbishing a lot.
We palaver about equality,
We gab about feminism.
Then why we authorize,
our sister’s clothes?

All the answers,
have got lessons of life.
But as a run of the mill,
they are cryptic and rife.
We definitely got junctures,
to make them patent.
Then why we always,
show case our strife?

This society has got injuries,
which needs alleviation.
World has got predicament,
which needs total cremation.
The novice youth demands,
to create the change.
Then why shouldn’t we,
first learn the creation?
Then why shouldn’t we,
first learn the creation?

Lasts Forever

Poem “Lasts Forever” by Anmol Sachdeva

So today we part with a heavy heart
I’m still stretching my hands towards you
In a hope that we can have another start
I know I have hurt you deep
And it is said as you sow so shall you reap
The weight of remorse will be a burden throughout my life
Something I can never defeat even if I could fight
But darling you will always live in my words
Even though our togetherness will be blurred
I will keep you safe like a flower pressed in pages
Our love’s fragrance will last more than ages
So here I implore to forgive my deeds
My aching heart cries and pleads
For when I had time, I could not keep you mine forever
But we don’t we really miss the winter more only when summer lasts forever?

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 Goodbye

Poem “The Goodbye” by Arpita Sukhwani

Standing at the forged road, looking at you
Eyes were filled with tears but mask was happy too
Life was so perfect when you were by my side
And the thought is so revolting that the lovely bond we shared can never be revived
With so many lovely memories of ours in my heart
Sister, it’s arduous to bid the heartiest GOODBYE!
