My dear Nandita has recently bid adieu to the blogging world (sadly) but we agreed to continue with our Dear Series. For readers who miss her eloquent poems (like me), Nandita ‘Manan’ Yata has recently released her debut book “Passion in Poetry: Whispers from the Soul”.

Dear Anger*

My scheming threads
can turn you into a puppet
A heartless, mindless robot
with fiery soul, corrupted.

Good intentions are my harness
Best wishes I don’t overrate
No space in my heart for malice
Such a soul is immaculate

Once you dive into my cliff
you will surely sink,
I bet no one will help you
until you die and shrink.

Contentment is my guide
On joyous clouds I float
Love will help me glide
Should I fall off my boat

‘Cause I am a fierce poison
that unleashes your inner demons.
Yes, I am a strong force
that’s too hard to reckon.

My demons I’ll tether
with kindness and empathy
Try your best Dear Anger
Love conquers all, I’m happy.

Dear Pretence*

*Part of the  free verse “Dear Series” collaboration with my poetry Queen, my dear soul-sister, my cheerleader and encourager, my lovely friend, Nandita of Manan Unleashed.

Dear Pretence*

 

A master in fakery
I make delicious lies,
with mask of bravery
and grinning wide smiles.

Sugar coated bitterness
a good facade you make
Smile laced with uneasiness
What an effort it must take!

Bitter crocodile tears
hides my inner grimace,
as one’s fears
were slowly realized.

Oh the dryness underneath
Misty flowery wreaths
Fear you hide beneath
The anger that seethes

My flattering words,
were never ever pure,
real praises I can’t afford,
cause I’m the best, for sure.

your honeyed words I feel
Compliments not meant
Dear Pretence, be real
how long can you pretend?

Dear Judgement*

Dear Judgement*

Once accepted,
I can’t be erased.
Once received,
I can’t be fazed.

Once you enter
you are usually seen.
Empathy is my mentor
I will not let you in.

I break hearts,
and infect minds,
turn lies to art,
make truths blind.

Hearts gets bleeding
You are so unkind.
A parasite feeding
on the feeble mind.

With self-righteous man,
I will surely flourish.
Cause there is no one
better than all he is.

You’re so hell bent
I hope you do your penance.
Dear Judgement,
I bid you good riddance.

Will your failure define you? Or will you define your failure? 


Dear Failure*

I’m the bane
of victorious soul,
I’m the rain
sun can’t control.

Your test of rainy days
are a blessing in disguise
for the one who strays
into the path of lies

You’re a mountaineer
in a beautiful peak,
I am wind’s sneers
turning  you oh-so weak.

My faith is invincible
No matter the height
my strength indomitable
Burden heavy or light

Slowly you cascade
from top to bottom.
Will someone save
your life in autumn?

Succeeding in its fall
Beauty cascading free
An important stepping stone
Dear Failure, I honour thee.

Dear Hatred*

hatred

*A  free verse “Dear Series” collaboration with my poetry Queen, my dear soul-sister, my cheerleader and encourager, my lovely friend, Nandita of Manan Unleashed.

Do you know that hate is a double-edged sword?
If not, let Nandita  and I show you how and why.


Dear Hatred*

Drink me like a toxic soup
taste my cold bitter curse,
as I slowly, surely swoop
in between your brain’s curls.

In and out, you are so bitter,
you are no sugar-coated pill,
I must help you feel better
let me drink you to the fill.

Brought by tainted past
you can never forget,
I will remain and will last,
your heart I will torment.

Your past must have been hard,
anger is just masked fear.
Don’t let the future be a shard
pricking everyone near.

Kill me, yes you can,
blow my dark flaming fire.
Forgiveness, no less than
is my only bane for hire.

Let kindness be your lance,
your bane will turn into boon.
Dear Hatred, give love a chance,
love, I know, will find you soon.
