Bold Strokes

Life is stringing her along with every heartbeat

Choking on the words of yesterday

As she is high, drunk on emotions

Drying up on her own expectations

Somewhere in the broken heart of space

The little girl inside her has grown into a beast that guards her heart from this pathetic world

Beautiful but dangerous…

Thrones in her words keep people at their bay

Every day she wonders

What is the difference between normal painting and greatest painting?

It’s a matter of five bold stokes they say

Over time she failed to accomplish these stokes

A thought that watered screwing up the paintings has bloomed into a giant tree

Might cost her efforts or may be it was risk that needed to be taken.

Which had her hands shiver at the touch of brush

And eventually hope along with her gave up painting

Maybe it’s same for her in life too….

Never bold enough to speak up

Living in the irregularities of thoughts

Stuck in the angle of incidents

In a ocean of loneliness she became a mirage to her existence

Over again and again

Maybe this dessert flower doesn’t know the price of rain after years of torture and pain

She doesn’t know what is is like to quench her thirst with success

Maybe she is too sacred to bloom

The bud that rotted from inside out

And left to dry up and break…

Only her stroke of words are bold as she paints her words in sorrow on the sands of today.

Dieing a little everyday as the time laps the pages of life by and left to the responsibilities of adulthood begins as she has failed to master that one bold stoke ….. Maybe one day she will have the strength to risk it all.

Waiting for that day as the seconds tick by so that she can bloom again into the flower that she is meant to be… waiting seems endless for you dear flower
