Kshipra is a student pursuing masters from JNU, India. She loves reading and writing poetry and wants to publish her poems someday.

I am a girl next door,

like all of you may well have seen,

like the frightful deck knocking the door,

of structurally unsettled evenings


As much quirky ,chirpy

and wild like a child,

I am innocent and timid

rejoicing in those platitudinous chimera

full of enthusiasms cryptic!


I agree to have not being tamed,

for in my wildness lie details,

of loving parents and pleasant memories.

I can be vile, oft a cause of grief


Will those evenings ever portend

the pains, their despair and sighs

inside the depths of their appearances frail,

yet strong enough to be ever gauged by an eye;

that timidly like ruckus plays

all the time ,throughout the days;

too loud to be appreciated,

by their pain stricken skies


No the faces you are encountering,

of many passer by

will never reflect,

the pains , the deep scars

marring their souls

writ large...

On their beings and person

They will not rejoice in playfulness and glee

a mellower demeanour held by thee

will not either better their tomorrow

neither would be as much a sorrow


I have learnt to behave

for like a passer by, its better to be forgotten

than to be remembered

etched in grieving moments

on the blank slates of memories

as havoc spreading innocence

      I enjoyed reading this poem, Kshipra. I would say, ‘just be yourself’.
