Guest Writer Spot

It’s great to be back blogging and to be welcoming guest writer, N Gopika to this slot once more. Here is a little bit about her:

I am 18. I belong to India, the largest democracy in the world. I am a passionate writer who loves writing poetry as well as fiction.I used to read books since my early childhood and that helped in bringing out the writer in me. Writing is a better way to bring out the unsaid feelings hidden in the subconscious mind.

THE MAPLES OF AUTUMN

For today I am alive,

Tomorrow might not be mine.

I might not wake up,

On one fine morning.

Or I might not see that night.

I would be all set to leave,

To that one void deep dark silence.

The maples of autumn would sing,

Their songs of absolute melancholy.

The tides of the Nile,

Would shed their tears.

And in the condolence

Shall you be standing with,

The memories of a brio

In your heart beats,

Some missed out opportunities,

In your tear drops.

A few incomplete stories,

Being hummed by your lips.

And a good bye for me,

In your deep breaths.

As I lie beside you,

With my eyes shut and

Body frozen and numb,

But my ego keeps on auditing,

For whom did I really live for,

And for whom I would be leaving then.

I would turn back at,

The trillion moments of joy,

In this glittery blissful life.

Some unending love affairs,

With the womb that bore me,

And the roof of my good times.

I have lost a million battles, but

Life is not only about triumphs.

So did I learn to lose seldom,

And to gain with overwhelming charm.

There stands my kith and kin,

Shedding the last tears for me.

And there she is,

Lost in the memoirs of a warrior,

Who survived in her,

Liberated from her,

And who gave up his life for her.
