I Stand amongst the dark night
I become a knight
I walk with the bluntly sharp sword
My Shield is love,
and only Love

The path is a little foggy
The forest denser than what I had thought of
My body is fragile
The heart though has the strength of the mighty Mountain

I live in the womb of words
I was born in a rhythm of divine poetry
I dance back and forth in verses
My skin tone is a shade of ink

Call me what you will
I will in the enclosed space create a dream
Without doors and windows
My room yet shall always remain bright

Because
I Stand amongst the dark night
I become a knight.

I become the Knight

When You touch My Skin

And sometimes
when you touch my skin
and a wave of goosebumps
are dancing on the top of my skin

I wonder what good I did to deserve love like yours!

 

And sometimes
when you hold me tight
and the breathless heart
falls in love with the divine suffocation

I wonder what good I did to deserve love like yours!

 

And sometimes
when you look at me
and every part of my soul
feels like the most beautiful being

I wonder what good I did to deserve love like yours!

I wonder what good I did to deserve love like yours!!

 

Your Girl,
Dharti

I fear Love

Walk Into My Life
And hold my trembling fingers

Steady my shaky hands
Pamper this terrified heart, my dear

I fear love today…

 

Sit beside me today

And listen to my untold plead

Sing a lullaby to me

Let the fear in me go to sleep

I fear love today…

 

Hold my hand wantingly

And let me draw circles on your palm

Caress me in your arms

Let the spell of your breath dance

I fear love today….

Every I love You!

Every ‘I Love You’ Ever said
was a spell Casted

Every ‘I Love You’ ever said
was a smile crafted

So smile my friend
as the godliest
feeling was
a guest at
your place

Every ‘I Love You’ ever said
was like a dream come true

Every ‘I Love You’ ever said
was a heart skipping a beat

So breathe my friend
as the liveliest
person finds
home inside
you!

 

So live, my friend
So breathe, my friend
So love, my friend.

Your Girl,
Dharti

To Read Faces!

To read faces
Means to understand twisted faces

I become aware of dark thoughts
I can see the unwanted tear
I can hear a silent scream
I can love a broken Soul

 

To read faces
means to understand something unwritten

I can sense a broken heart
I can see the depression’s scar
I can hear the anger roaring
I can love with a dagger in my heart

 

To read faces
means to be a witness to an undone crime

I can sense a destruction of self
I can see the blood coming out of his chest
I can hear the stabbing of dreams
I can love the terrified being!

Your Girl,
Dharti

I hope a dream finds you tonight!

I hope a dream finds you tonight
And in awe, you sleep
for those little hope
These closed eyes give
Will find a home in you, when opened.

Among the trampled edges and damp souls
your bright soul shines
Among the twisted faces and roofless homes
your dreams fly!

They will find you where the world meets
They will find you where hopes breathe
for they are lost in the fog of sorrow
for they to crave a soul that believes

The smiles will hover in the air
the love will hide in your hair
your heart will dance
and the mind sing
when the dream will find a home
in you!

I hope a dream finds you tonight
And in awe, you sleep
for those little hope
These closed eyes give
Will find a home in you, when opened.

 

your girl,
Dharti

What Would I Be Without You?

What Would I Be Without You?

During the days when the Sun is bright
I would be a man walking without his shadow
And at night the Moon would laugh at me
For I might be chasing dogs on the silent street!

 

I would be a poet without a poetry
and a heart that does not know how to beat
I’d be a burning cigarette without a smoke
I would be the man lost in his own home.

What would I Be if not yours?
Who would I be if not your?
What would I be without your heart?

I would the only still thing during a breezy night
I would be nothing but a pitty sight!
I would be a book without pages and a story without its end,
I would be a hell without any sinner and a heaven without the angle!

And at nights like these,
when your arms are not near
I seldom wonder
What would I be without you?
Who would I be without you?
Where would I be without you?
HOW COULD I EVER LIVE WITHOUT YOU?

 

Your Girl,
Dharti

Love was here!

We all tend to complain about love
As if its arrival gifted us nothing else but pain!
But to all those who shed tears
I want you to smile my friend
Smile because love was here!

Days, months and Years are passed just like that by few
Waiting for a moment for love to call their name
But with you my honey, love stayed for a while
So I want you to smile my friend
Smile because love was here!

To be lucky is to be loved
To be lucky is to feel its suffering
To be lucky is to feel its blessings
So I want you to smile my friend
Smile because love was here!

 

Your Girl,
Dharti

The heart in my hand!

Tonight I will knock your door
with my heart in my hand
Let me in or throw me out

Tonight I will knock your door
And bring with me broad daylight
Let the sun witness the love you hide!

Tonight I will knock your door
And bring with me some stars in my lamp
Let these little one know what real light looks like

Tonight I will knock your door
And bring with me Tansen’s Sitar
Let him the see the music of your voice

Tonight I will Knock your door
And just in case if you decide not to open it!
I will sit at your door for the rest of my life
and keep singing to them
the songs I have written in your wait tonight!!

 

Your Girl,
Dharti

Be A Potato!

You are a Potato!!!

Now when I say that many of you would come with different interpretations of this statement and the most common ones, of course, will be “fat,” “ugly,” and “stupid.” But darling when Potato was never meant to be an insult! How can a vegetable loved by all age groups, behind the existence of French Fries and a savior in every dish be an insult?

 

For me, Potato means a savior, a kind that mixes with every other kind, the one that holds on to you in cold and in heat and brightens up your mood, no matter what!

So here is a small poetry for my wonderful Potatoes!

 

Darling, you are so fine
With love flowing in your bloodline
I am glad I can call you mine
And never in your life forget
to be a person like you is a blessing in disguise!
So go kiss the world darling,
toe the line,
You are Potato and you must shine!

(Maybe not the best poem you have read but try to feel the love I have put in it!)

You are a Potato!!!

 

Your girl,
Dharti!
