I never liked your cigarettes They took away from your smell, taste Nape of your neck, I favored most Yes I could call it home, home, home Oh it feels nice to breathe you in…
‘Advice to a girl’ is a short one-paragraph poem, but with a very strong message. An advice that the one who is worthy might never be yours. And it’s up to you to decide how to move on.
This is a poem about suicide and how it often occurs to best of people. And those who don’t understand these people during their lifetime wonder why they chose death over their company. Charles Bukowski calls death as effect and oblivion created by people around him as effect.
Robert Frost chooses the best alternative as a mode of destruction if the world had to end this moment. He chooses the better mode from amongst ‘fire’ and ‘ice’. He is also giving justification for his choice.
I can’t believe we been together for 8 years I would ask you to grab a glass so we can say cheers But let’s not forget you only here because of my peers I have been waiting for Jesus to finally steer At times I feel like he’s deaf because he’s still not here I guess it’s time for me to steer I just got to ask you something Why do you continue to keep me from resting?
‘I Thought That I Could Not be Hurt’ is one of the first poems written by Sylvia Plath during her teenage years with a sad undertone. In this poem, she wants to express how her life was happy and joyful. And how these pleasant feelings aren’t permanent.
‘The Lesson’ by Roger McGough depicts the frustrations of a teacher in a very strange and peculiar manner. I cannot, even in my nightmares, imagine any of my teachers could do such a thing, as illustrated so beautifully in the poem.
कभी कभी बड़े से बड़ा दर्द भी खामोश होकर सहना पड़ता है, दर्द तो दर्द है साहिब हर किसी से कहां कहना पड़ता है । गमों को आखिर कितना पीया जाये, जीना ज़रूरी नहीं फिर भी जीया जाये । मुक्तसिर सा फैसला बड़ा तूफान लाता है, वक्त भी कभी इम्तेहान लाता है । खामोश तो समंदर भी है, आदमी तो आदमी के अंदर भी है । सुकून की तलाश में फिर एक दर्द खरीद लाये । #updivine #updivineyourvibes
मोहब्बत भी कितनी अजीब चीज़ होती है, रूठकर उससे कितना भी दूर चले जायें मगर दिल उसी के पास रहता है । इसका शिकवा भी ये ही बयान करता है, चश्मा उसी के घर रह जाने का मतलब उसका दिल उसी के घर रह गया । #updivine #UpDivineyourwibe
Standing in the middle of the nightWith an aching soul and tattered mindWith no one to lean by my sideWith nothing to leave my grudges behindTill rain had splashed over meThen I realized, I finally…
Sometimes it’s tough when we decide our fate before birth. Success seemed so much more salacious to me than love. How silly was I? For the rest of my life, the clapping of the audience…
This poem describes the fear of Christina Georgina Rossetti, not from death but from the fact that her lover might not remember her after she is gone. But as the poem progresses, she accept that for a greater good, it would be better if he forgets her and live happily, rather than remember and be sad.
Har ankahee baat raaz nahi hoti Har kisi ki kahaani udaas nahi hoti Agar dil mil jaye toh jashn-e-ishq Magar dil toot jaye toh awaaz nahi hoti Sehete hain hum bhi par kehete kuchh nahi Aage badh chali zindagi dil toh hai waheen Toota toota sa poochhta hai hamsafar se apne Kaheen mujhe bhulaya toh nahi?
I loathed the flowers thatI’ve planted on the backyard. I did water on it every single day. I’ve cultivated it as soon as its roots sprouted. But why? Why did you bloom for someone else?
This is an extremely sad poem, much like the life of Emily Dickinson. A poem about her appraisal of the sadness and grief that she meets, and I bet she meets many. This poem just keeps getting sad until the last couple of paragraphs, where she reveals that other’s grief gives her comfort. It is others too, who have suffered. And some of the pains are like hers.
