Think Again: Moved On

Think Again

Another ‘dailyprompt’ leading to another one of my poems. I feel this particular poem is relatable to most of us millennials who find it difficult at times to maintain relationships and getting over them after all is said and done. There’s always to those silent tears and those loud cries of agony, anger and frustration. While some of us do get over things quickly, others have a hard time. This poem deals with the ambiguity surrounding the person after his break-up.

Happy reading!

Moved On

It’s time now.. I’ve stopped thinking about you,

Those dazzling eyes & that mesmerizing smile…

I’ve stopped thinking about the days when we were together,

When I was your crazy lover..!

I’ve moved on from those vibrant & soulful eves,

You were just a fantasy is what my mind conceives..

I’ve stopped being overly proud & bragging about things which I did for you,

Because there’s no need to show-off when your love is true..!

Those love songs captured my mind & its ‘you’, who struck my mind,

I was invariably caught in loving you, almost blind..!

I’ve moved on from the questions like, “Does she love me or just like me..?”

Because life is so much more than just you & me..!

I wanna experience the moments which will take my breath away,

Wanna travel the world till my hair turn grey..!

It’s a quest for a new sunrise, a new beginning,

It’s time to give my life a new meaning..!

I thank you for making my life so very wonderful,

Our times together were pretty damn cool..!!

If you ever wanna talk to me, call me don’t hesitate,

We aren’t enemies my dear, it’s just fate..!

Sometimes when your images flash in front of me,

I wonder why ‘You & Me’ were never meant to be..!

So sometimes I think in the face of dawn,

“Have I really moved on..??”

Moving on is at times a really tough and deceptive task. You never know what exactly will get your boat past this rush of emotions and bring you to the shore. All I can say is that it’s just a matter of time and courage.

Luxury: What’s Love?


Hello everyone.! Its been a while since I have posted something. As always, ‘dailyprompt’ summoned me to catch up with you all. Today’s response to dailyprompt related to the reality of the modern world. Luxurious, extravagant, über stylish, glamorous and many such adjectives are befitting to the lives we lead today. Everything we do has to have a glam-quotient and a suave to it.

But is this really good when it comes to love? Well, that’s what my following poem narrates. I have posted a question right at the end and I’d love to know your thoughts on it. Happy reading! 🙂

What’s Love?

Suddenly I knew what I had to,

I knew what love today was all about…

Love isn’t about those sweet words & those special gestures anymore,

It isn’t about those weird blushes & the nervous meets anymore,

Love is all about those grand parties & those huge presents..!

It’s about those expensive dates & luxurious outings..!

Love isn’t about just being together & walking on the beach hand in hand,

It isn’t about the wait to see each other’s faces n’ getting those butterflies anymore…

Love is about going for movies to multiplexes & hanging out in lavish bars..!

Love today is all about flaunting & showing off,

It’s about wanting your partner to stand out amongst everybody,

Love is about that dream date that she has always fantasized about…

It is about becoming famous in colleges because of your hot partner..!

Love is about airplanes pulling banners over stadiums, proposals on jumbo-trons & giant words in sky writing..!

But actually love is never about all this,

Love is really about going that extra mile even if it hurts,

It’s about giving it everything & letting it all hang out there…

Love is about finding the courage inside you that you didn’t even know existed…

Love is about holding on & being there with her,

Love is a need… A need as vital to the soul as water is to the body..!

Love is when you know that you were born just for that one person…!

Love is when someone means so, so much to you that words don’t even begin to describe what you feel about her..!!

Love is when you wanna be her ‘everything’..!!

So, that is real love in my opinion. Everlasting and true, with or without luxuries. So true that it keeps a dying man alive in the hope of salvaging some blissful moments from life.

As I said, I have a question for you all,

What according to you is ‘love’? Would you rather choose ‘love’ or luxury’?

It always encouraging to know what my readers think. Don’t hesitate to like, comment and share.
