Carte blanche for her life!


picture credits-

The young princess was offered the cosmos at her feet

yet she gave up the comforts and riches for she had promises to keep.

The people called her imprudent and naive

yet her heart knew her reasons and backed her to strive.

The whispers from inside had been driving her wild

and those mind numbing chanting and echoes she could no longer hide.

No longer could she confine the growling beast inside

and to remain sane, her bed of roses she was fated to sacrifice.

Finally withdrawing herself to her own heart and soul

she listens to none other and sets her life free from the daily toll.

So one fine morning she breaks open the pearly gates of her royal castle

and lets her drooping soul bathed in the healing sunlight sparkle.

Beholding a serene and breathtakingly beautiful autumn scene

she forgets all fears that had been pulling her back within.

She runs through the lush green wild fields,

dives into the welcoming oceans deep.

Stealing kisses from the playful and mellow breeze

she gets drunk over the chimerical moonlight.

Walking over the rain soaked earth she lets its scent sink in,

running her fingers over the flowers she takes in memorable imprints.

She is often tempted by her so called royal friends

to go back to her life decked with jewels, gems and delicacies.

Meanwhile she feels her heart skip beats

and her fascination running wild.

And she goes on exploring the creation,

for she had promised herself Carte blanche for her life!


About SK Rajeshwari

I am an incurable bibliophile, dreamer, writer, poet and connoisseur of all things beautiful. This blog 'My Cosmos' is my first love and nothing pleases me more than constructive feedback for my write-ups. My second love is books. I am an insatiable and roly-poly bookworm. Books teach me how to explore the world inside me and the ones that are outcomes of someone else's unadulterated imagination. What beautifies my existence is the endless walk I enjoy putting on those shoes of imagination. Step into my world, feel my poems and allow your wandering soul to be hypnotized by the fragrance of the captivating manifestations of my dreams, experiences and imagination. Allow this feeling to creep into your being and let your nerves speak the language of beauty and artistry. Bienvenido :)
