Stupid era



Many times I wonder

As the rhythm of my heart goes

Ding dong, ding dong 

I ponder

Have we all gone nuts?


Are we now robots?

Devoid of emotions

Nor human feelings

As we act stupidly

With our smart phones

When lives beg for help!


Why not a life saver 

Than paparazzi

Acting so lousy

With smart phones

Stupid era

I ponder


Many, oh many

To the morgue

'Cause we fail to act

In the scene

We act foolishly with our phones


Allowing lives evaporate

All because

We want views, 

We want comments

We want likes

Era of social media

Stupid era!


The baby in a carton crying

Yet we're videoing

Oh accident victims struggling

Yet we're snapping

Is our phone a curse,

Rather than a blessing?

I ponder

What a stupid era!

Love held in hands,
Opens eyes to  hope in the skies;
Now I see light.

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Dear Valentine

Val' as you are,

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
