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 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) 😉
