silence could be sounded everywhere
and i had realised i was somewhere
it was dark and grey
trust me! nothing could be seen.... all was in vain !

i move my hands in and out
gave myself a few circles round and round
took a step further ahead
and had almost decided to take it back

when i saw a bright ray of light
coming towards me from my right
" whether shall i approach my right ?
  or right  is just not right ? "

a swap of limbs by degree 90
name of almighty
started stepping ahead
could not listen the footsteps i had

by now the ray of light
had become visibly bright
here started conflict of heart and mind
" it can be everything. "
" it will be nothing. "
" why dont you venture in ? "
" why not to escape out of it ? "
" complexity is magnetic......"
" but simplicity is  adorable. "

the signals were infuriated in nerves
just as a natural geyser is about to bring turbulence
" silly me !.."
dove and the olive branch
had started appearing hazy........

sounds like  a tower of babel....!!
" you ignored the ghoosh sound. "
" but what now !!"
"  you had already ventured into brightness..."
indeed! complexity is magnetic.. !!

" it is bright.. so .. bright..
  me out of darkness..."
there are roses, orchids and jasmine
green leaves are following the rhythm of happiness
finishes the disturbing silence.

" it is the first time
  taste sweetness
  smell happiness."
vision has brightness

close your eyes.
and four

open your eyes
too see darkness.. deep darkness
now its fear and horror
horny touch and ghostly voices
falls a sheet of darkness

that was a trap
to engulf the brightness of ours
not of ours ..but of millions..or even trillions..
that is why it is brightening.....
 a brightning darkness.....

author’s note:
i am feeling that i am moving towards light
but i am entering into a deep and dark tunnel.
as an author, a writer, a poet, a girl..lols..whatever you know me as…this is  one workpiece which is very close to my heart. “the brightening darkness” . the all meaning lies in the title. Darkness: evil, disgrace, negative, hovering, pessimism, haunting…! Brightening: happiness, cheer, joy, love, affection, amore, friendship, light, warmth. But, how could two co-exist? Simple. In life, something that appears magnetic and attractive, like a guy who is handsome and caressing, or a rose beautiful and fragrant, a friendship promising…. But later it is realised that something which appeared to be brightening was an envelope over the darkness it is made up of. The guy is a fraud, the rose pricks you the moment you hold it, the friend was fair-weather.
Friends! Face values are a trap, they are temporary, if you have to appreciate, start appreciating the beauty of heart. Permanent!

it is a  day to be called sunny..
but still there is  dark and deep..
i can see flowers
but they are not sweet !!
i can see bushes dense and lushy
but they are not green..

little girl has fallen down while running
it was the time when i got hurt on my knee
dad said "you are a brave girl, my child !"
mom said, " princess will be alright"
my eyes were showering ..
and i felt it was the saddest moment....
a moment that can never have a strong competitor

but, i can be wrong, so wrong..
i never knew .....
until this happened..

HEART- a small room for large wounds
no bad doctor to give me medicines                        
no bandages, no tears, no more blood to bleed
but what  crying is a small heart
a small room for large wounds

no dad to say that i am a brave girl
becaue he cant see my heart harboured
my heart harboured with tears 
that no friend can wipe for a dear
mom sees a smiling face 
and says that it resembles hers in childhood

i am walking on the path 
trampling over the leaves...
ohhh !! these thorns are painful.. so painful..
that i bleed, i weep, i cry aloud...

when it rains outside,
little children come out of their houses
they run, they shout, they play with fun and frolic
they fall , they get injured and cry with showering eyes..

their crying upsets everybody around them..
silly me! i smile on this..
because i know it doesnt hurt
what hurts when you have a heart
with millions of wounds not seen.

when it  rains, i thank him..                                                  
"him" is the almighty
because it rains when my eyes arent able to shed tears
he crys for me and supports me
and says "because life has to move on"

lost in a land of sand
i was walking here and there
besides there was a stream
with water gurgling and murmuring

i could see nobody anywhere
i could listen some sound nowhere
the silence sounded somewhat eerie
i was lost in solitude nearly

alas! i saw some footprints on sand
not of human or panther or creature living on land
i shouted if anybody was there
but heard no response from anywhere

suddenly, i felt a touch
shocked, bewildered, i was stunned
it was cute, little and fumbsy
yeah! it was genie.....

ah! i thought he would grant me wishes 3
but, he himself looked pale, sad and needy
i asked who you are
where do you belong from

the genie exclaimed (as expected) :
" i can fulfil your 3 wishes..... "

ah! that's great!
you are a creature
found by people
with handsome fate

but, tell me why are you sad?
why not happy........
for fulfilling desires
for fulfilling what we aspire....

"no. i am an evil.
 i am a disgrace.
 i am not meant for people
 with handsome fate."

"ah! how come you say that?
 if you fulfil any 3 wishes
 you can't be a disgrace
 i am lucky to have such a fate"

"stupid girl! get the meaning of life
 life is a path of thorns and pains
 there are hurdles to be crossed
 and stones to be pushed away."

widely opened was my mouth
soon you could see me dumbfound.
while i was making out 3 wishes
my fingers shaking and body trembling

within no time, the genie said :
" demand! demand what your 3 wishes are! "

his words were an order
asking me for 3 wishes
his eyes were a plea
requesting me not to say anything

i was gazing at his eyes
oh! they were so immense
when i found that
i was lost in them

"no. i don't want you to fulfil any of my wish."
"demand! demand what your 3 wishes are!"
"no. i don't want you to fulfil......"

genie converted into a beautiful prince
sparkling smile and twinkling eyes
his hair was gold and colour was silver
yes, he was not less than a treasure

"i had been waiting for you for years
 without you i was always in tears
 you are not a stupid girl
 you know how life can always turn

 how did you make out
 that genie was something fake
 it was a trap for people
 not with handsome fate

 yeah, you were gazing at my eyes
 did you make out me pleading
 or you understood something from my speech
 or is it like you don't have any wish "

"what you said is all correct
 these were a few things i had kept in my head
 but, something else was most portentous
 that had troubled me with great momentous


 i saw footprints big, small and very small
 moving towards you on and on
 but why these footprints never returned
 has now an answer very much deterred......."


an attempt to highlight how the world can always put some bait to engulf you. but, we all can overpower it by using our wits. the story of a fairy land, or Cinderella, or snowwhite may be good to listen and no offence against people who believe in the existence of such worlds ( hey, even i do..). here, a genie granting 3 wishes was a trap...a big trap..! the moment narrator had asked for it, it may have done something it never wanted to. the narrator's wits of observing footprints that never come and overpowering the vice of greed... that's what is the demand of poet  !!!  and yeah, it did help a beautiful prince !
“open your eyes to see the world. anybody: an enemy, an acquaintance, a friend or a well wisher...could be a disguise who offers you wishes, but, don't demand! it may take you down. ! :/ :/ :/”
