The deceptive Poetess!


Picture Credits-

A hopeless romanticist,

an illusionist,

a restless soul,

there she goes wandering along the banks of her utopian island,

followed by mischievous glow-worms dancing on her sublime thoughts .

She blows life into slumbering words

leaving behind footprints on the sands of time.

With a poker face she walks by your side,

her pursed lips deceiving you

of the loud cries of her racing thoughts

deafening her with the clattering of the restraining chains

that drag her like a trampled toy.

Damaged. Discarded.

Screaming and demanding to be set free,

her dreamy self strangles her with threads of extreme passion.

Lost in the silent battles with her own self,

she slowly learns to derive pleasure from the pain that clouds her qualms.

She dreams of snowstorms while the sun rays bathe her feet.

She fancies bloodbaths while staring blankly on the clouds so limpid.

Conjuring painful fantasies she bleeds on the lifeless sheets,

producing heart-wrenching tales and poesies.

She sheds bitter-sweet tears as she writes,

with deep solid strokes she paints the bloodless canvas

and brings it back to life.

She delights over her reader’s distress,

confusion, chaos and brainstorms that shake the naive souls.

Slaughtering her own chastity into pieces,

she dies a thousand painful deaths in her reveries.

But her heart only beats more fiercely as time flies

and makes her feel astonishingly

oh so alive!


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 :)
