All Aboard !!

The train conductor’s call,

The passengers made their way onto the train,

The engine let out its steam and blew a whistle,

It was then time to leave,

Crew members, service attendants and porters hurried to make it to the train,

The train started to move slowly as it left the station,

Visitors of the passengers waved their goodbyes,

Some with even tears in their eyes,

It was after sometime you could see the end of the train which had many bogies,

So majestic as it curved with every turn,

As the train picked up speed it made more sound and everything outside moved fast,

Each compartment had a door which passengers can lock from inside ,

There were no upper or lower berths neither sides,

Divided into separate areas with no means of moving between compartments,

The aroma of food made the people anxious,

They couldn’t wait to taste the food that was served nearby,

The train changed different routes passing trees ,

Meadows along the way,

Finally we reached our destination and got down from the train,

What an amazing journey it was,

I wish I could turn back time and do it all over again….

Burst of Flavors

The bitter sourness of the lemon hits you as you taste,

To the sweetness of that oozing chocolate sauce with nuts and ice-cream,

Melted to create that awesome taste,

The spiciness of a chilli burning up your mouth,

That hot sauce that mixes to create that smoke,

To the tanginess of the tamarind,

The aroma of all the mixes mixed well,

The pungent smell of the onion,

The tears that come with it,

The melted cheese making its way out of the patty,

The gigantic burger which doesn’t fit anymore in your tummy,

The coolness of the cucumber and mint,

The taste of all these amazing flavors,

Gives a burst to all the colors and flavors of life….

Lonely Pain

She shut herself away,

Loneliness was her only friend,

She spoke to herself when she was in pain,

She was not insane,

She would cry for no reason at all,

Every single day she hoped she wasn’t alive,

Her family couldn’t understand her,

They scolded her and hoped she would change,

But little did they try to understand about their daughter’s pain,

She was going through a hard time,

Depressed with no motivation to live,

With no support,

She continues to struggle alone and live through the pain on her own….

Make it Go Away…. Your Way…

Have you ever met people who constantly try to annoy you?

What do you do?

Do you ignore and walk away?

Or do you respond and stay,

Whatever the case calmness is the key,

The more annoyed you would get the more motivated they get,

Its the constant feeling of getting the attention on them that makes them act this way,

Well, the life lessons has taught me to stay away,

So, I go on without overthinking what people may say,

Its your choice after all,

Everyone has a different way,

To deal with annoyance and make it go away,

So smile and forget things that don’t matter to you in anyway….

Ladder to the Sky

I want to build a ladder to the sky,

I want to see the whole world from up there,

Tiny below well-lit at night,

I want to float on the clouds,

The blueness of the sky and the ocean,

The sun and me having a long chat,

Giggling and laughing our hearts out,

In the night the moon would give me company,

We would have dinner together in moon light,

The soft clouds would be my bed on which I lay,

The birds flying would come and whisper on the way,

When its time to rain I can see droplets and all green below,

When it’s spring I can see beautiful blossoms of flowers,

The sky would change into whatever color I want,

The sky and me would be like two friends sharing our stories…

Imaginary City

Two people set on their way to discover and gain the fame,

To discover an unknown city,

As they went ahead they lost their way,

The map all old and faded ,

With nothing or no one to help they used their instincts,

Finally they reached a big tree the roots were deep and old,

This was the first point to the unknown city,

They lay beneath the tree for shade,

They continued their journey from there,

The sound of water could be heard nearby,

This was the second point,

They reached the beautiful waterfall,

And had a quick swim to feel refreshed,

They saw a old boat lying at the corner,

They got on the boat and paddled their way,

Behind the waterfall was an open space,

Leading to a different world,

There were modern buildings,

Modern architecture,

Flying cars and take away in air,

Was this the future they had come to,

They were surprised,

They came back out of the waterfall to make sure they can go back to their real world,

When they tried to re-enter the waterfall again something was different,

This time the city had vanished in thin air to never be found again…..
