Moving On – Two short poems

On behalf of Smriti

Trust betrayed
Innocence frayed
My past haunts me in nightmares
There is no one who cares
Still I survive, I work, I live
The love I have to all I give
The cloak of a survivor I don
But can I be happy, can I move on?

On behalf of Rohan

I am scared of myself,
I have hurt others in past.
This softness that I feel sometimes
Not sure if they will last.

Should I give in to them?
This song should I groove on?
Can I be worthy of love?
Can I be loving, can I move on?

  1. These poems are so apt for the characters. The crafting is so good and detailed that I feel Rohan and Smriti do exist. Read the book 3 weeks back, but the story, feeling and inspiration are still fresh in my mind. I remember scenes, characters from the story every day 🙂 Loved it!

    Posted some feedback as well on FB, not sure if it was read / missed.
