Moving On



I’ve ceased
Writing your name
On transient clouds
That mar my face;
I’ve stopped
Reading your name
In every line
And empty space;
Tears have fallen
Like diluted drops
Of icicles and lace;
Your presence
Isn’t my crowning glory
Nor my saving grace.

i could write about other things
and pretend that i’ve forgotten.
no one will even realize
that under all that fastidious writing
was still your name–
glossed over with vulgar laughter
and fabricated oblivion.
no one except you;
for, you’ll see those tears, i hide.

Have you seen my scars?
The ones you left behind
When you let me move on?

Have you seen my scars
Glow and burn with remorse
When you smiled at me
Last time we crossed our paths?

Have you seen my scars
How deep they still linger
And not letting themselves heal?

Have you seen my scars
All over you?
Because I did-
(Behind your smile)

“To The Girl, He Loves, Next”

When he says he loves you–please, let him know that you, also, do. Tell him–tell him, everyday. Shower him, with sweetness. If you could; then, cook for him. Buy him little gifts, to make him smile. Praise him. Encourage him. When he feels down and discouraged, pull him up. Let him know how special he is. Point out his beautiful character–his kindness, his gorgeous eyes, his intelligence. Tell him that you believe, in him–and, that you are proud, of who he is. Make him happy. When he disregards you, be patient with him. He gets preoccupied with life, as well. Above all, be there for him. Fight for your love, too. Because, he isn’t perfect. And, life–for you, both–will, surely, be tested. But, please–love him. Sometimes, he forgets to love himself, as well. Because, I cannot do these things, anymore. You are his present. I am, merely, his past. Love him, for me, too.

“Smiles Are Waiting For You”


Written by Mitesh Sahu.

Do you think your life is ruined
because of break up?
See yourself in a mirror and
smile doesn’t it look nice?
Observe that girl staring
at you in the class
who thinks you are a different guy than others?
Think about that friend
who starts giving you lectures when you are low.
Your dad’s face when they hug you.
Your siblings when they tease you.
Doesn’t it all look just perfect
and you are wasting it all
for a stupid break up? Damn!
You need to grow up.
A lot of smiles are waiting for you,
A lot.

“I Love You But I Don’t Want You”


Show Text

oh, i still love you.
i think i’ll always do.
but no, i don’t need the pain,
you make me feel.

i don’t need
feeling inadequate,
whenever you’d flirt
with others, in front of me.

i don’t need feeling lonely,
whenever i’d wait for you–
and you don’t arrive.

i don’t need all
the negative feelings
you make me feel.

yes, i love you
but no, i don’t want you
with me.
