Your Colour


My distant, for I keep you such
and you are the closest I have touched.
A Question confronts you-
You bleed so much blue for
a person you keep far
inside your soft heart.
Does your one bleeding colours
that mix and fills this soft heart?
-Manvendra Vidyarthi

God’s Own


Open ways the doorways of.
Takes you in silently, like the soft breeze
Taking greens to shimmering.
The Supernal land
known to be God’s own.
Justice is that I had seen.
For heaven is where he is
And heaven is where peace,
The Serene,
The simple merge.
Forming that is God’s own.

What a kind thing to say.



From the lullabies of timeless spinning
of fibres from each one of dresses they wore.
I am guilty of stealing from the one
the colours to mine came from.
There I have lost some belongings of mine.
All your prayers are my crying.
And in whirlpools of the words,
To find the kind things you say
I keep prying.
What a kind thing to say-
“I am from you
and you from what all is mine.”
-Manvendra Vidyarthi

Beautiful Outsides and utterly fine.
But these Vessels have withered insides.
A Victim? Yes! This is entirely true.
I know love. I do believe you.
You are. (with a smile)
Where does one sell souls?
I find no Devils here. Only Humans though.
Ahh! Humans are no less. Now I know.
Dylan Simone said -“ How do they walk around?
Devoid of warmth.”
She threw me in deep thought.
But no answer to this my heart and my head caught.
It is alright Dylan. I believe and you shall too.
A place we belong to, is surely hidden somewhere too.

Under my skin


Like crystals decorating the surface
I have seen dewdrops on flowers.
Your smile do this to your face.
Like the dust is settled by the showers
I am settled in your company feeling safe.
All my tears are under my skin
and you wash them away by your caressing.

Secret (Acrostic)


Silenced beneath beautiful shining green
Eyes deep like the oceans I have longing for.
Chest holding a lot more than every complexity holds.
Resting where they belong.
Enwrapped away from the cruelty of this world.
Time in this life, will not be enough to unravel them all.
