Agape (self less love)

Since many years ago,
she is guiding me
to inject soul in my body
through her white and red blood
I am blind but she have power to
illuminate my world through
her sense of touch
Her infinite and deep love
has made her a rich beggar
of the world but there is huge
disparity that she love me ever
without asking any retreat.

Sumbul Jamal.

2 a.m.
A grave night.
The room-
Swampy lumps of darkness-
I inch towards her.

I inch towards her,
And I curl up to her.
Asleep,
Into an endless darkness,
She sinks.
Away from our world,
Away from me,
Unaware,
Carefree,
Assured even, just a little,
She slips.

I trail my fingers,
Down the smooth length of her arms.
Short, so slight.
Her skin so thin,
So cold on my skin.
Wrinkles, layers, shallow furrows,
So weary, so worn now.

But it was yesterday.
Just yesterday,
That she arranged,
Her hair in a lavish bun,
And pinned a rose, sideward.
The skin,
At her high cheekbones,
Under the setting sun,
Had glamourously glittered.
Then,
When had my Maa been growning old?
Under the shadow
Of the dying ...

But my heart forever...

Agape love!

She rubbed her back as she sat on the steps resting her head against the pillar that stood long and strong supporting the terracotta roof. Her back hurt. Doing all the chores alone had taken a toll on her health.

From preparing breakfast, lunch to doing the dishes and laundry - she was always packed with work. After she finished her daily routine, she came and sat on the steps everyday gazing at the half opened gates as if she was awaiting for someone.

Two o'clock, Three o'clock, Four o'clock... As her vision began to blur and her heavy eye lids were pushed to rest by the lazy afternoon wind. She sat waiting for them to return from school.

She was a mother of four kids.

From a teen lass
Who dreamt of stars and moon
Who believed in celebrating the falling rains
Who rejoiced the blooms of spring
Who feared heartbreak
To an independent strong stubborn lady who no longer believes in promises, meaningless friendships and love
I have travelled a long way..all alone..all by myself
Is this worth being proud that my happiness is in control of myself or should I be sad that I have turned this cold hearted?

A girl was holding a doll with loose hair,who was doing hide and seek with her grandma.
The grandma hid behind the pillars where was obvious to be found.She was not into the game and what she wanted is to make her granddaughter feel a sense of accomplishment.
She was a frail old lady who made little sound while walking but laught out loud to her darling.

Don’t fall in love with a woman who reads, a woman who feels too much, a woman who writes.Don’t fall in love with an educated, magical, delusional, crazy woman. Don’t fall in love with a woman who thinks, who knows what she knows and also knows how to fly; a woman sure of herself.Don’t fall in love with a woman who laughs or cries making love, knows how to turn her spirit into flesh; let alone one that loves poetry (these are the most dangerous), or spends half an hour contemplating a painting and isn't able to live without music.Don’t fall in love with a woman who is interested in politics and is rebellious and feel a huge horror from injustice. One who does not like to watch television at a...

One of the few human qualities that truly inspires is resilience.

And there are few persons I know with greater resilience than my mother.

How she has endured, and how she can still endure time and time again is a testament to her boundless generosity. Her ongoing sacrifices for her loved ones in the face of continued adversity is a wonderment to behold.

I look back at my childhood with genuine disbelief and incredulity. How did a single mother put three boys through private education, complete with extra tutoring lessons, on an hourly wage that would have barely satisfied the needs of one person? How many hours must she have sewn? How many personal indulgences must she have forgone? The s...

"Tu puta enamorada"

No me arrepiento de haberte conocido...
De verdad, nadie más me hubiera partido
la madre tan exquisito y sublime como lo
hiciste; bendita maldición haber probado
la ponzoña que me diste.

No me arrepiento de haberte conocido...
Lo juro. Dicen que más hombre es, el que
en el sexo hacen correr a una mujer... te
felicito cariño, me follaste hasta los ojos,
mira como estos se vienen a mares por
tus recuerdos rotos.

No me arrepiento de haberte conocido.
Sí, aunque haya dolido, aunque me hayas
jodido, siempre tu nombre llevaré en estos
dos dedos conmigo, cuando caminen siete
pasos por debajo de mi ombligo, en donde
empieza el infierno y acaba tu olvido.

No me arrepi...

"Los domingos te amo más"

Lo estaba; sí, estaba despierto
cuando usted se levantó a hacer
el desayuno, pero es que me
encanta verte con los ojos
entrecerrados sin que te des
cuenta. Fuiste de allá para acá a
buscar un blusón fresco, el de los
domingos; no lo encontraste porque
lo escondí y terminaste por ponerte
mi camisa, me fascina que lo hagas.
Observé como aspiraste el cuello y
cerraste los ojos para olerme en ella
mientras la apretujaste como si me
la quisieras arrancar como en la
noche, después volteaste conmigo
y me apreciaste por 7 minutos sin
hacer nada, solo me me mirabas y
suspirabas; 15 suspiros en total
conté, uno cada 30 segundos, pero
el último contó por dos...

Social Taboo

As soon as I turned into an adolescent,
the discussions on my fertility had become predominant.
When the d day arrived,
my family quite rejoiced,

A huge procession was arranged,
and I assumed it was just to declare that my body has changed,
When I deterred this ideology,
I was forced to ask for an apology.

I stood stunned,
As my pleas were shunned,
I shrank beneath in my heart,
when my secrets were blown apart.

What is wrong,I wondered,
and was lost and cornered,
on why I was made to sit in a corner,
and was only allowed to murmur.

Why am I feeling so dirty?
Is it a sin to hit my puberty?
I realized that these customs are unfathomable,
I resisted to be treated as an  untou...

From, because of and To this patriarchal society.

An incident which has left a grave impression on me.
One fine day when we received sweets from one family when their daughter got engaged. I heard someone passing a comment, "Now since they don't have a son, having no choice they will have to distribute gifts and sweets on their daughters engagement as well (with this I am yet to meet or rather dying to meet that one person who set this ground rule of only celebrating a son and his happiness).

When I heard this I tried to rebel. And to this day all I can think of is, I rather have people not do anything for me at all rather than having people who would do things for me lesser than they wo...

           "Once Upon a Promise"

He already left me
a long time ago.
He already poured out hisself
to someone else.
He already spent his time
without me.
He can do it all over again...
Once upon a promise.

Oda de una mujer casi rota

Voy a reconstruir todo lo que destruiste.
Voy a escupir todas las palabras
que tragué para hacerte feliz.
Voy a ser más fuerte que nunca.

No me importa cómo me veas más,
es hora de dejar de luchar
por tu atención o tu amor.
Voy a apreciar todas las imperfecciones
que tú señalaste con precisión.
Voy a dejar de burlarme
de la manera en que te burlaste de mí.

Voy a dejar de quejarme de las personas
que no me tratan bien
porque me enseñaste que esto no es lo que merezco.
Tú me enseñaste que eso no es una norma.
Voy a empezar a amar todo lo que odias de mí.
Voy a empezar a vivir para mí sin temer tu existencia,
tu opinión, tu juicio o tu castigo.

El ma...

As a rebellious teen I hate doing ANYTHING with you but at the same  time deep down inside my heart I know that I’d have been NOTHING if it weren’t for a mom like you. When you told me what to do, I thought you were bogging me down. But in hindsight I realize that you were actually giving me wings...
If I can grow up to become even a LITTLE of what you are, I will consider myself to have achieved a LOT. Happy birthday mummy.....
I luv u a lot....
