Sorrow and life.

Is this world not badly messed,
Where all are finding reasons to feel blessed.

The continent looks like God’s coffee spill,

Wonder then if it was his plan or will.

Right from when we open our eyes,

It’s a mad rush to be wiser than wise.

It’s a day eat dog world they say,

To survive one must then find his own way.

Wish life came with a  manual of guide,

So to know the unimportant and to be kept aside.

Doing what I want is taking me no where,

Wonder if I even know my purpose here.

Running after my happiness I am without rest,

Then why in return I feel such a waste.

Once I was told this life is a gift,

So when this got into a tragic shift.

Maybe I should not think about it at all,

And just enjoy the crazy free fall.

Happily I must accept the joy and sorrow,

While praying for a happy and beautiful tomorrow.

Maybe then the world would seem a bit nice,

Even with all its fugility and vice.

Torn we are.

Torn we are between here and there,

But it is with you I want to be everywhere.

The pain of separation with you I can share,

Other’s don’t bother and neither do they care.

The distance is not really what I fear,

But it is the thought of you not being near.

So often it’s your picture I stare,

Trying to reach you climbing some imaginary stairs.

Not an excuse.

You say I don’t express my love anymore,

I didn’t know that we were keeping a score.

I might not say it a lot,

But in my head I repeat it non-stop.

So doesn’t matter I say it or not,

Remember you are all I have got.

I am not here to make any excuse,

Even from billion it’s you I’ll choose.

-Shivesh Gupta

 

 

Always free.

Like an idle useless old tree,

I am for you always free.

Confused I am about the time,

Like in darkness one is counting dimes.

Unless autumn when a leaf from tree fall,

You don’t need any reason to call.

So make me hear your beautiful voice,

Whenever you want it’s your choice.

-Shivesh Gupta

Always there.

So what the photos got deleted,

Our memories are now permanently created.

Don’t you ever get sad or feel hurt,

Remember you are always there in my heart.

We will click more pics this is not the end,

Those broken memories we will someday mend.

So stay happy and don’t lose that smile.

Will come to see you even if have to walk miles after mile.

-Shivesh Gupta

What a time.

What a time to be alive,

I can see your face on screen live,

I am making any kind of hype,

You look beautiful even on skype.

So what if the network is bad,

Your voice still makes me mad.

I know it’s going to be worth the wait,

Still then I am becoming desperate.

As will forward go the year,

We will get more and more near.

-Shivesh Gupta

Because since…

Since we can’t together wine and dine,

I send you poems which I try to rhyme.

Life without you feels so empty,

LIke after the meal you get no Coke but Pepsi.

I know you are there for a good cause,

But my happiness here has since been on pause.

Like every day I need that coffee filled mug,

Craving now I am for your warm hug.

-Shivesh Gupta

Everything about you

So healing is your laugh,

It cuts my stress into a half.

So sweet is your voice,

It will always be my music of choice.

So cute is your nose,

Makes you look good in every pose.

So charming is your eye,

Make me want to do all sorts of vice.

So juicy are your lips,

Kissing them makes my heart do flips.

You are in every way a beauty divine,

I am so glad I can call you mine.
