A starry sky,

On this wintry night,

Who shines the brightest, I guess they fight.

As alone I sit in the balcony—

THE FAULT IN OUR STARS lying side by.

A mournful symphony,

Or so is it just in my mind.


Holding the fresh brewed hot coffee,

For at this hour, I prefer it more than the tea.

It’s probably cold by now,

Coz I don’t find the hot vapours

Coming out of the cup any how.

I place it lightly on the table,

Carefully, but with a little tremble.

I get up, but my legs feel so feeble.


In a short while,

I manage to reach the railings.

My hands fall on my ears absentmindedly.

And I am able to feel his gifted earrings.

I look up,

For down, it’s just darkness and fear

And I’d prefer a little light

To let my gloomy mind feel a bit of cheer.

I behold the stars again;

Wondering when was it that their shimmering began.

I hear my mom’s voice ring in my ear:

“Forever is an illusion, dear,

It’s a word, just mere.”

Premonitions fill my mind.

Anyone so perfect, will I ever find?


That sad song,

So familiar and yet,

I cannot identify it.

Or may be it’s my mind gone all wrong.

It plays again.

Now and then it stops again.

Only to resume again.

And when it did stop,

It’s silence pin drop.

I realize it was my favourite country song

Whose lyrics I’ve remembered for so long—-

You see the stars?

Through ages and wars,

Like them, your love will shine.

For even when he will depart,

And you both are miles apart,

No matter how dim,

Your rays will reach out to him,

Calling out “You’re mine.”

P.S. With this post, I’d take a little break from blogging for the next few weeks since I have my final exams coming up right away. Thanks to all my blogger friends who’ve poured in so much of love and encouragement which has just inspired me to a whole new level. I never thought I’d be writing instant poems with just one word prompt, had it not been you all’s inspirations. I can’t thank you enough. I’m just grateful to have met such lovely people like you. And by the time I return with my next post, keep writing for your writing is what inspires me to write more and more. I’d catch up with all your posts once my exams are over, for I’d love to.

If you like this poem of mine, you might want to take a look at the other POEMS I’ve written. It’d mean a lot me if you check them out as well.

Lots of love and well wishes.

FEATURE IMAGE: I did a little bit of hand painting last vacation. So it’s mine. HA! HA!

    1. Thanks a lot, love. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 It’s probably just the introspection of a far-sighted overthinking of a girl in love. 🙂 🙂 🙂 We all have our fears, right?
      And thanks for the well wishes. Yeah my first Exam is English but the rest 5 are science subjects: PHYSICS, CHEMISTRY, MATHS and COMPUTER SC. Thanks again, 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

    1. Thank u. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
      And about the part where the mother’s words come, I included it keeping in mind how a mother or a father for that matter guides their child and advices them against something when they know their child is wrong. Infact I tell u what, the sentence I wrote “Forever is an illusion” is inspired by what my father had advised me once. He said “Don’t run after illusions in life”. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

      1. I will. I will. I vouch on my life that I will. Your love is reason enough for me to write like there is no tomorrow.

        I can’t thank you enough for being who you are. Your words were my undoing. I’ll get back to writing as soon as my Boards are done with. Take care and ace the tests like the amazing person that you are ❤

        P.s. i guess my GYANI GUNI BHAIYA has become all romantic today. I read the poem about Holding Hands. But like i mentioned in my post i am just unable to comment on any bloggers’ posts except probably one. Been having this problem since yesterday night. Anyways, it’s a very romantic poem. Loved it!❤❤❤❤


      3. Haha..arre you’re the only one who named me gyaani otherwise morever i speak non sense due to romantic disorder 😂😂
        Glad you like it and i guess go through to the settings to settle on commenting problem.

      1. Genetic? Probably the only part I ❤ about Bio! XD!
        So how have your exams been? Good with you? Like some loyal friend? XD!
        P.S. Your blog's new look is so cool. ❤ ❤

      2. Reproduction? Everyone hearts the chapter. It’s this one chapter that makes Class 8’s Bio all the way more interesting lol!!!😄😄😄😄 Maths was good. But i made a bit of mistake in one of the Probability sums. Yeah I finished it 5 mins before the bell. It was lengthy. But then i was taking my own sweet time to answer each question and checking it in each step. Ha ha!
        Btw how’s ur bio preparation?

      3. Hahaha yeahh. Same. I think probability ruined our time. I started from the back so I did that with the 6 markers. Then I saw the time and rushed through the 3 markers.
        Lol I have to do so much more but weirdly enough I am so chill. Last exams suck. 😭
        You’re so lucky you are done!!!

      4. Luck? Where was the luck when we had computer and maths only with a day’s gap????😢😢😢😢
        I finished the LPP Sum around some 2 mins before the bell. I took more time in a few other sums which shouldn’t have taken the time I gave them.
        Hopefully we’ll get part marking in greater proportion! 😥😥😥😥


      5. It was abit tricky with writting all the outputs. But easy nonetheless. And yes not lengthy as well!
        And best of luck for tomorrow, My Beautiful Dreamer. ❤ ❤ ❤


  1. Poetry weaving a story is beautiful indeed. ♥ wonderfully done.

  2. ❤💜❤💜 LOVELY.
    P.S- I relate to so many of your traits, writing during exams when we should be studying, musical tastes, recent inclination to poetry. But bio is my all time fave subject. Wo ek cheez alag hogayi 😄

    1. Thank you Ayesha! ❤ ❤
      I am so glad I found someone much like my own self! But I can't agree with Bio! OOpsie! Sorry!! Lol! Oh my! How do you people even memorize such weird weird names of organisms and medicine compositions and bla bla bla??? 😛 😛


      1. Haha. I guess the ones who like bio seem strange to the ones who like physics. Like me, I can’t ever understand how anybody liked the numerical stuff in physics (I like the theoretical stuff) 😉

      2. I won’t say that I loooooooovvvveeeeee Physics but when I understand and I can constantly solve the MCQs once I get into the flow, it does become my Favorite! Ha ha! But anytime, Maths is ❤ ! And Bio? I better not talk about it! But but, in class 10 I did love Heredity and Evolution! They were ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤


    1. I think I am getting flattered so much that I am ready to flood with the pink of my blushes re Sumedha.😘😘😘😘😘😘😘
      Here are you visiting my posts and all I am doing is replying to comments and sucking class 11 physics. Hum tere saare posts check karenge ek din. Pakka re.😊😊😊
      P.s. were your comments disabled for the last post? The one on class 12. I read it few days ago when u shared but couldn’t find the comment area. ☺☺


      1. Ahhhh save the floods…. I think there are more of your posts to read…. Or did I reach the end already? I don’t remember new posts showing up when I scrolled further….
        11th physics 😌😌😌. The Object Of My hatred. Not physics in general, but 11th physics. And no pressures on the blog thing. My writing is freakishly amateurish compared to yours.

        By the way, if you truly seek some beautiful writing, visit this blog: https://pulchrauniversum.wordpress.com
        I can’t express in words how much I love whatever she writes. So I’ll just say, that level is kind of what I aspire for, some day.

      2. He he he he!! No way!! I’ve read your work and when u read something, u know where ur own writing style is.
