They smile in brilliance

You shattered the glass.

A swift blow was all it took.

 

You tried to mend it,

Only to break it further.

 

You felt you were lucky to have that glass,

But, you pushed it too far.

 

Today, the shards pierce your hands,

Though you can never put them back together.

 

You should have taken better care,

You shouldn’t have kept pushing your luck.

 

See, it has now run out.

The glistening shards are the proof of that.

 

They had stayed together for all these years,

Only for you.

And finally, today they have found their shine.

 

Your luck seems to have shifted to them now,

For they have decided to glitter.

 

Though broken; in pieces; in millions;

They choose to shine despite the pitfall.

 

You have faced an irreplaceable loss,

And so has the glass.

 

However, instead of spilling their own blood now,

They smile in brilliance.

Poems

I am short,

I am sweet,

I can sometimes grove to a beat.

I tell stories,

I share pain,

I experience joy in a very unique way.
My speciality is rhymes,

I love metaphors,

I invoke emotions like never before.

I can bring hearts closer,

I can drive them apart.

It can share histories

And can bring dreams to life.

Goodbye

The night falls and so does the chill.
But this chill makes me feel ill.
I have an exam tomorrow.
But all I can think of is you.
We weren’t perfect.
But then life never is.
Life without you seems meaningless.
But somewhere I know it means something.
I miss you so much.
It hurts like fresh wounds.
But the most painful of it all
Is you never stopped to say goodbye.
So here’s the goodbye you never gave.
The goodbye you never took.
Goodbye. Goodbye. Goodbye.
