Discovering My Real Self ( A Poem On Self Love)

My petite form hidden masked in my heart’s strengthened blossom,

I take prancing steps flying in new love’s freedom,

chained by affection’s wings:

I claim the sky today:

love has made the whole universe mine.


Beloved I am and the lover too,

the Eternal and the Ephemeral

Never miss real stories from India's women.

Register Now

transcend volatile in my frail form

trailing off lights that illuminate stars

and whisper Maddhava’s form

in my ecstatic ears.


Heart-ache and heart-ease both left behind in the splitting city lights,

I dance in the castles of rain -clouds:.

I have left far behind human cares and human worries:

only the madness of the chirpy wind beats my soul

bringing spining tears to my love – lorn eyes.


In this night’s stillness

amidst twinkling companions of Indra’s heaven:

I smile unabashed at myself:

my heart crying raptures at the unleashed discovery of my own very self.
