A Mystifying Story of An Adventurous Girl

Anupam Mishra is a language trainer. She has been teaching English for ten years. She loves to read and write poems, stories and articles.


Early Age

A little girl was born in a small town

Unwanted she was being feminine,

The family wished for a baby boy

And couldn't digest the birth of this child,

Her charms couldn't get the attention

Of the people in her large paternal mansion,

But just considered her as a source of tension,

As she couldn't be the heir of the huge mansion.

Within a few years, a baby boy was born,

And the gloomy family had a celebration

to express their contented feeling of jubilation,

At the end, they got the heir of the mansion.


Teens Dreams

With the age, the expectations grew

The teen had got so many dreams new,

Some hormonal physical changes

Provoked her to revolt against the customs,

And she didn't accept any of the age-old traditions,

She longed to have reasons for every superstitions,

Thus, becoming an odd piece in her connections,

She stayed away from every relations

Getting engaged in her soulful invocations,

Drowned in the world of words

She developed a new world of perceptions.

But then too, to fulfil her carnal desires

She was trapped in the world of fake fires

Considering platonic love as her fervour,

She couldn't realise that desire was a cheater

Who was disguised as a passionate amour,

She was ready to leave the whole world

To stay with that newly found admirer

Who pretended to support her in every ardour.

The trust crushed like candy floss

As the lewd flew when the truth came out

And what left was just a black spot,

On the life of that teen who lost her self respect,

That part of her life was the very moment

When she easily accepted her defeat

And was ready to go with the trendy beat.



With the blink of the eye

The teen was no more a teen

She was grown up as a woman

As she was married to a man,

Her dreams started with him

And revolved only around him,

Neither friends nor any destiny

She'd just her husband's company,

She forgot all about her mutiny

Accepting her present as her fancy.


Flourished Garden

The world became more and more beautiful

Though that included just her family world little,

Her little family garden flourished with flowers,

The garden was nourished with love and affections,

Despite the differences in interests and expectations

Until there was no scope for any intruders.

Shattered Garden

There came a twist in the story

With the arrival of long lost deity,

Who tried to be perfect in every sense,

As she had made her world of greatness,

Devoting her life for the needy ones,

Spending her days with orphans

And with the dejected ones in old age homes,

Her arrival in our little garden was an avalanche

Which shattered the little garden of ours.

In Love With A Shadow

That little girl now as a woman

Had got a lot in the world of her own,

She started living her life once again

Just to give something to the next generation,

Though she was still obsessed with a shadow

Whom she considered as her companion new,

And shared everything that she felt or knew,

Hallucinated she was of the elusive love

Wandering in search of that fake fellow,

That never existed in the real show.

She kept on waiting for the response

Expecting that she might make some sense

But all her plea were ignored and shattered

With time she came out of that ignis fattus.

Quest for Love

She kept herself so engaged in her passion

That she really forgot about love or devotion,

Time and again she kept hiding her longings or ambition,

Knocking at the doors of many hermits and conmen

Just in hope of getting the salvation,

But for some reason, she was reminded of her form

And recalled the requirement of this physical form

When one of her childhood friends asked for a union,

Though she hated the idea and broke that connection

That was the point when the quest for love had begun.


Love in the Air

And finally, there arrived the love season,

It was neither infatuation nor with any expectation,

Just showering some blessings in the heart garden

Letting the little girl feel herself as an individual again,

Afar from any existing worldly relation,

She found her best companion,

Who could listen to her expression

Without engaging her in any prison.
