Are you okay? Yes I am.. But I wasn't , As I responded to that, Because what else to say, When you aren't, Are you feeling good? Yes I am.. When I wasn't, But how will it help, If I responded for real, Do you need water? Yes I want.. But just shut down, The surrounding chatter, With infinite laughter, I couldn't bear, The noise, Inside me growing larger, Than my voice that was, Shaking my exterior poise, My daughter, Came closer.. As she held my, trembling hand, As she whispered, Mom, it will get better.. My partner, Looked at me, And wanted me to know.. It's okay, Not to be okay, Getting drunk, And throwing up.. Is all part of growing up, Till the part, Where you start loving, Just water again.. My mom and dad, Comforted me,  That although sad as it looks, Things aren't that bad.. As explained by the books, Relationships and people, Are the ones that make you stable, While everything else, Can topple,   Well, there will be loads of trouble, But more than that t


Caught in your smile..
Going breathless for a while.
As you look back at me..
I could see.
Patio chairs sit empty now..
As laughter echoes through summer.
Shouting out loud right into my ear..
Then coming down on my lap..
Those widespread eyelids twinkle..
Not falling for the trap..
Is me.
The steaming coffee smokes..
Flickering lips with a sip.
Foggy glasses..
While rain splashes the windows all afternoon..
Trying to watch through closed eyes..
Feeling the voice of the door..
Or the creaky floor..
Heart trembles as night falls..
Sleepless gets me.
Not happening..
Not anymore..
Where they are ,where they go..
Only heart pounds in despair..
Wishing they know.
Rushing back to my arms..
Are crying droplets..
Snarling back..
Is a faded reflection..
Trying to look through..
Is me.
Walking on dry leaves..
Listen as silence swings..
Noisy heart beats..
Clumsy crossing streets..
Caught a butterfly..
As it passes by..
Giving out a smile..
That’s in me.

* Dedicated to parents and their selflessness.It’s a courageous pact indeed.
