Roopa Menon Poems
To Those Who Love Me
Brown, yucky and tasteless Toxic monsters All tightly bundled Into a thin roll.
A Tale Of Love
In a small town lived a young girl, Who had a very sweet name called “Furl” She was very gentle and delectable Exceedingly gorgeous and affable,
The Sea Called Life
Showers of happiness, As a million raindrops, Where every dropp mirrors, The wishes and dreams,
The wind blows Through my hairs Grown through years of struggle It brings message
The Kindest Piece Of Paper
Knocking every door Polite or rude A poor sales boy walked. A burning stomach
Learn To Live
In this materialistic universe, Being generous seems like a curse. Today when we talk of great values, People turn deaf ears like statues.
The tree didn’t dropp from sky, It has grown I wish it rather Grew into earth
Clouds And Hearts
The Sun awoke And dazzling rays shown Reflecting on the golden wings As two birds flew
Anatomy Of Tears
Tiny droplets of salt Cling on the tip of eyelashes Hanging valiantly Until a blink of eye
Her Body Print On Sand
Painted in evening colours, The sky glowed, In an array of orange shades And the rays sparkled,
Her First Steps To A New Life
Tired, tattered and trapped, She lay still and peaceful A rhythmic whisper From a young heart
Addressing World Citizens
We have all taken birth on this earth, Where murders, thefts and dacoity have no dearth, All around us there is corruption. Even today millions are deprived of education
We touch Shoulder to shoulder Hundreds of strangers and me My eyes
Just A Heartbeat Apart
Forlorn and Abandoned, Yet together eternally, United in a soul, Two little sisters,
Just A Heartbeat Apart
Forlorn and Abandoned,
Yet together eternally,
United in a soul,
Two little sisters,
Sharing warm smiles,
Sorrows and memories,
And innocent promises,
In life’s unwinding roads.
But they were parted,
