Happily Married!

I absolutely am not sleepy yet,
But there is nothing about which I want to talk,
So again I go early to bed,
Making an excuse of my morning walk.

He walked right out without turning back,
Without a hug or a goodbye kiss,
I am not surprised or taken aback,
I now don’t expect any of this.

I smile at him when he returns,
And go back to reading my book,
He drowns into his mobile and my heart yearns,
Just for one reassuring look.

I often give in when our opinions differ,
I have no will to prove me right,
Nor do I have an explanation to offer,
Where is the point to start a fight?

We are happily married they say,
They must be so damn right,
They cannot see the dark dismay,
They only see the light!

Can't get enough of you!

Oh my God! You're so cute that I cannot kiss you without clenching my teeth!

Dear God

Dear God,

Give me a burst of color, a stroke of darkness, a sprinkle of shimmer, a variety of textures!

Do whatever, just don't let me die an empty canvas!

Love,
Meghna

Broken

I'm a glass. Broken. Everyone cautiously walks away from me. At such a time you come close and try to fix me. Of all the people I land up hurting you. Not because I want to, only because I'm broken. You still have faith, clean up the blood you've shed and continue to work on me.

That's why you are my favorite person!

I'll Still Keep You Within Me!

I'll never let you die,
I'll never say goodbye,
When they come to get you,
I'll break my piggy bank of luck,
And spend every dime to keep you back,
I'll hold you in my kiss,
And hide you in my words,
Elope with you to my dreams,
Or wear you in my eyes,
And if they still insist,
I'll ask them to take me along,
But I'll never let you die,
I'll never say goodbye!
