How Can It Be Love?

Published 09th December 2017 by viewsofpreethib

How Can It Be Love?

How can it be love,
When you never tried knowing me, my sorrows & happiness,

How can it be love,
When you never stood beside being my strength,

How can it be love,
When you never accepted the difference in our opinions,

How can it be love,
When you always misunderstood & held me wrong,

How can it be love,
When you never tried to overcome the distance between our hearts,

How can it be love,
When you never valued my emotions,

How can it be love,
When you spoke of exploring my body rather than my soul,

How can it be love,
When you couldn’t respect boundaries,

How can it be love,
When your actions were opposite to your words,

How can it be love,
When you never tried to work things out & keep your word,

How can it be love,
When you slept peacefully knowing I was in tears,

How can it be love,
When your friendship too was conditional,

How can it be love,
When you didn’t trust me enough to know about your best friend,

How can it be love,
When nobody in your life knows my existence,

How can it be love,
When you frequently gave up on me,

How can it be love,
When your love for me faded, in just few days….!

I wish you knew!

Published 17th November 2017 by viewsofpreethib


I wish you knew!

I wish you knew,
How much I miss our chats,

I wish you knew,
How I wait to hear your day-to-day act,

I wish you knew,
How I want to update you all the facts,

I wish you knew,
How I miss you calling me pagli & all,

I wish you knew,
How my day passes in your memories,

I wish you knew,
How some feelings would forever remain in drafts,

I wish you knew,
How much impact you made on my heart,

I wish you knew,
How I have started writing in your style,

I wish you knew,
How I hoped you noticed every small things,

I wish you knew,
How genuinely I tried to be yours,

I wish you knew,
How I wonder if you remember me at all,

I wish you knew,
How much I miss you my dear friend….

Special Yesterday, Unwanted Today!

Published 15th November 2017 by viewsofpreethib

Special Yesterday, Unwanted Today!


How the beeps of your messages so frequent,
Turned out the mobile permanently silent,

How once your priceless possession,
Turned now as your worthless dispossession,

How your innumerable endearments,
Turned to be just words for acknowledgement,

How your future plans of us,
Turned to be plans of fuss,

How your promise of staying forever,
Turned out a myth in November,

How your unconditional be-love,
Turned to be conditional love,

How the hope of search coming to end,
Turned to be distress of dreams coming to end,

How those sparkling smiley eyes,
Turned and were left with teary eyes,

How from being so special to you yesterday,
Turned to be unwanted for you today…..

Tutte Dil ki Dastan!

Published 21st October 2017 by viewsofpreethib
Feels like its incomplete, but still posting it as of now… Might edit and add few more lines in the future…
Tutte Dil ki Dastan!!!
Nami aankhe,
Suke hue aansu,
Bin tere,
Zindagi hai gumsum…
Zalim Duniya,
Mein jeena, na manzoor,
Mar na pahu,
Kasmo mein bandhi hoon,
Tutti iskadar,
Saans Lene mein majboor,
Zinda hoon,
Lekin, Zinda laash bankar…

A wrap for NaPoWriMo & AtoZ Blogging Challenge 2017

Published 02nd May 2017 by viewsofpreethib

Did you survive?                        

I am so glad, finally finished the two blogging challenges I took up this year in the month of April successfully. This is the second time I am taking part in the two blogging challenge as the first time I took these challenges were in 2014.

This year I was not sure I would be able to finish both blogging challenges and if I could write every day.  Yes, in between I really wanted to quit, but still something, someone, some power in some or the other way pushed me on the next day as I woke up to keep up with the challenges.

A special thanks to my colleague come friend Cynthia who encouraged me every single day to keep writing, reading my blog, and correcting me in the places where I could have improved my writing in the AtoZ Challenge and during the NaPoWriMo she became a poet herself while I was trying to write the poems. Thank you Cynitha, it was fun writing, reading poems together. Your encouragement, everyday you were keen to read what I wrote on the prompt and your honest comments on my attempts really means a lot to me. Thank you so much.

Congrats to all those who had taken part in the NaPoWriMo or AtoZ Challenge. Below I have listed a few links who have participated in these challenges. And who have been encouraging me with their likes and comments.

Day 30 – NaPoWriMo 2017 – “NaPoWriMo”

Published 01st May 2017 by viewsofpreethib

Day 30 – And finally, our final prompt – at least until next year! Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem about something that happens again and again (kind of like NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo). It could be the setting of the sun, or your Aunt Georgia telling the same story at Thanksgiving every single year. It could be the swallows returning to Capistrano or how, without fail, you will lock your keys in the car whenever you go to the beach.


Year after year,
New Challenge in April,
New prompts for 30 days,
A new form of poem each day,
Due to NaPoWriMo Challenge.

Year after year,
Your up with gear,
To face new challenge,
A repeated gift for yourself,
Which is NaPoWriMo Challenge.

Year after year,
You write 30 poems,
Along with unknown people,
In the journey you make few new friends,
Due to the NaPoWriMo Challenge.

Year after year,
Brings a smile on your face,
A satisfaction about yourself,
A memory so delightful,
Only due to NaPoWriMo Challenge!
