The Magician
Akshi Hargoon Feb 15
We all are unique magicians

From a painter to a nurse
To a poet that writes a verse
We create it in our own way
To brighten up somebody's day

We may all not have mind blowing tricks
Though our goodness still sticks
Our efforts never go unnoticed
And we don't make use of hypnosis

We all are created for a specific use
Each with our own personal muse
We all are unique magicians
And we will fulfill our missions
We all have a little magic

my pencil bleeds out its grey led
with all the words that could be said
painting out a collage of emotion
revealing a deep rooted devotion
hidden within a preconceived notion
waters raging like an unstable ocean
grey blood splashed all over the place
trying to win this unstoppable race

For The Love Of Nature
Spring time is here
What better way to cheer
To marvel at mother natures wonder
That can be admired beyond yonder
This is by far a magical feeling
Taking it in - your soul healing
All the trees and plants blossom away
Reminding us of natures ways
Leaving us all in awe
Hands to our cheeks dropped jaw
Oh what a blessing nature is to us
Providing us with calmness in life's rush

A New Adventure
Akshi Hargoon Feb 13
Farewell my dear friend is what I have to say;
though I wish from my heart that you could stay.
You have been an amazing friend thus far;
A true gem, a shinning star.
You have been there in the littlest of ways;
Just to show that you care always.
Here's a message from me to you;
Just remember my words are true.
The worlds your oyster as they say;
So you just go along and play.
My wish for you is all of lifes best treasures;
Coz my friend you are truly special beyond measure.
Always remain as you are;
A perfect masterpiece by far.

Perfectly beautiful with your scars

Hidden Desire
Akshi Hargoon May 30
Your eyes tell a story of innocence
Yet your mind is poisoned with deception
You lure me with your inviting looks
Your Laughter a growing infection
You are a gracious orchid laced with thorns
Consumed by dark intentions
To do all the wrongs

And even though there were nights my tears ran dry...
Each drop of my blood would still sing your praises
For a love as rare as yours - is worth much more

Akshi Hargoon Feb 17
Alone at last I feel free
It's like a light has shone straight out of me
I find peace in solitude
Yet they say there's a problem with my attitude

My senses seem heightened when I'm alone
I could draw a picture of a story untold
A story that has a protagonist of time
And an antagonist I cannot define

Being alone keeps me sane
It removes all my stress n'd pain
If only more people could understand
There's only so much I can withstand
So don't judge what you don't know
Coz you will only ruin the show
Having time to yourself is important
People always said, there's a light at the end of every tunnel - I never did believe that until I saw that light... In a person...

He brought out the best of me as well as the worst.
He could comfort me even though he was the cause of my untamed anger.
My calm exterior underneath which was a raging volcano of anxiety
One controlled by him so as to not let it possess my every pore and consume me

Being with him is like waking up to the sound of the birds chirping, the smell of fresh crisp air, the sight of mist covering the hilltops like a warm fluffy blanket. He is my sunrise on an overcast day. The rainbow after a storm and my *** of gold at the end of the rainbow.... He is my existence...

Be True
Akshi Hargoon Mar 24
Sometimes our eyes simply do not see
Our ears do not hear
We confuse our true self with our "Show" self
The self that's consumed by ego
The self that does not realize the value of relationships
The self that does not stop to appreciate the little simple pleasures offered by life
Do not just look.. But SEE
Do not just hear... But LISTEN
Always be your TRUE self - only then will you
truly find complete happiness and appreciation in what life has to offer

Time of Darkness
Akshi Hargoon Feb 12
There once was light where I stand;
Now I'm unable to even see my hand.
A time of darkness has dawned upon us;
Just makes me want to scream and cuss.

Loadshedding is what they call it;
Unable to see I sometimes trip.
It happens at times when we are hard at work;
Or at home while making dessert.

It's something that's beyond control;
Or at least that's what we are told.
The energy grids struggle to take on the pressure;
Thus reducing our times of leisure.

It's something that drives us insane;
Yet there is nobody we can blame.
How long long will this dampen our spirit?
Even they don't know it.

What are we to do in this dire straights?
Well nothing, just sit and wait.
Loadshedding has once again dawned upon us. A huge inconvenience.

True Realization
Close your eyes
you will see
all that cannot be seen

as once your eyes are shut
you see from within your soul
clearer messages relayed

My Natural High
He was intoxicating
A feeling you get after consuming a bottle of *****
A head rush, happy endorphins released
With you I felt capable, able enough to take on anything
To be anything
To touch
To feel
To believe
You were my magic pixie dust

Shine On
Akshi Hargoon Feb 18
Countless stars fill up the night sky
They sparkle just to brighten it
Seeing it makes me wish I could fly
But I'm afraid that I'll just trip

The sky and stars cannot survive without each other
They complement each other in a marvelous way
Their relationship is just like ours, we make each other better
We know that together we will stay

You are my night sky, I am your star
I shall burn to give you light
Whatever you do, wherever you are
I'll be your beacon shinning ever so bright
Special relationships and priceless

You threw her away
A seed which wasn't being used
She fell to ground
In despair, in a desperate attempt
To make something of herself
The dirt which she fell in, nurtured her
Provided her with all that she needed
Now she stands tall
A beautiful strong tree
Fulfilling her purpose

Force of Attraction
Your demons devour my soul
Drawing me closer to you
My inner voice shouts to stay away
Yet like opposite poles of a magnet
I'm stuck to you

My Quote on Kindness
Akshi Hargoon Feb 15
Kindness makes a huge difference
It's something that comes for f r e e
And truly is P R I C E L E S S
Just coz it doesn't cost anything to be kind to people. Any simple act of kindness is appreciated
142 · Feb 14
Akshi Hargoon Feb 14
A little kindness will live on
Long after you are gone
This will keep your memory alive
And help the wounded to survive
People remember how you make them feel

Your voice is like music to my ear
Serenading me, removing my fears
But how do I remove the fears

he was her air
giving her a beautiful life
a life suited for a queen
but suffocating
her on certain days - shutting the palace doors
making her see an explosion of colour
but immersing her into a dark dungeon
her mind became a spiders web
trapping her most intense feelings
allowing her to maintain her golden smile
while making sense of her devastation within
this war is hers to fight for she refuses to give up
she still sees the beautiful life and opened palace doors
135 · May 20
Akshi Hargoon May 20
Her mind is a bunch of tangled wires
Waiting to be taken apart individually
By the one man that dares
To wonder through her madness

Akshi Hargoon May 31
Touching you feels like playing with a candle flame
A pleasurable illusion of danger
To my intense gratification
I cannot stay away
Your iridescence beckons me
Your scent torments me
A mutually decided destruction

Our Demons
Akshi Hargoon Feb 18
We all have demons within us that look for opportunities to let themselves out.
The simple anger fueled misunderstandings, assumptions and conclusions.
They use that as their fuel to grow stronger and emerge out into the open as our alter ego
They devour all in its path just like molten lava that leaves behind no room for explanation
But we are in control and need to put out the flames that can consume us

Akshi Hargoon Feb 22
"Would you burn for me?" said the Candle to the Flame

And in his eyes I see love

Never tire

I'd happily drown in them
And feel at peace

Waves of Bliss
Akshi Hargoon Feb 12
I sit upon your shore; marvel at your beauty
Your cool breeze, pearl like glistening water; makes my heart beat faster.

Peace and tranquility is what I suddenly feel,
Gosh! I sometimes think it's unreal.
Watching your waves, puts my mind at rest;
A temporary relief from life's dreaded tests.

In your depts lay many hidden treasures,
Some that are priceless beyond measure.
You are both beauty and despair;
So one needs to take extra care.

You are a force more powerful than any,
Even to those that have tons of money.
You are my beauty, my waves of bliss;
Without whom I'd be in a dark abyss.

Our Hero
Akshi Hargoon Feb 14
He was a man who stood tall;
He knew he was destined to face it all.

From scholar to lawyer to freedom fighter;
He knew in the end it would make this country brighter

He tried his best to fight for equality;
Coz he knew all people would get equal opportunities

Everyone was equal in his eyes;
And it was this trait that made him rise

He was born to perform a duty;
And he did it to the best of his ability

He was someone we will forget never;
Our Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela
He truly was a man of great stature

You Are My Awakening
Akshi Hargoon Feb 28
In the calmness of the sea
I see nothing but you
You capture my every sense
Your composure, as calm and breathtaking as the waves kissing the sand
A tinge of roughness but care not to destroy its beauty
Your voice, oh, like a marvelous symphony in my ear
Each word taken in deliciously in bated breaths
My eyes look upon you with devouring intent
Your lips, your smile could bring the changing tides to a halt
The ball of fire in the sky dulls in comparison to your aura
One touch from you - I am a barren land filled with springs transforming into a flowing river
I flourish in your presence - in your absence I'm desolate
120 · Feb 22
Akshi Hargoon Feb 22
You glistened like gold
When I first saw you
I was elated
T'was as if I had found a pirates treasure

You brought with you high promises
So high that even you were unable to reach it
You pursued me to help you for your own
selfish needs
Yet you failed to observe I was a smoldering piece of coal
Almost burnt-out
Burning yourself to brighten someone else

How Much Do I Love Thee?
Akshi Hargoon Feb 18
How much do I love thee you may ask?
I love thee with all that I am - it ain't a farce
I love thee by being unapologetically me
I love thee because it sets me free
I love thee with a flame that burns so bright
A flame that could rob the day of light
A flame that only thou can ignite
A flame that can withstand any fight
I love thee with all of my heart
Even at the times when we're apart
Just coz I love you

Just because I'm not like you - doesn't make me strange
I may be wired differently but definitely not deranged
I am a glow worm emitting a light when I'm at my best
But for that to come into sight I need my antisocial rest
I blend in like a chameleon when I'm in a crowd
But feel a reckless need to leave when the voices get too loud
Makes me feel like an addict in need of narcotics
Though I'm perfectly normal I get looked upon as psychotic
Just because I'm not like you - doesn't make me strange
I am a normal human being - definitely not insane
I connect with people that are non judgemental
Their place in my life is definitely instrumental
If I don't like you - you'd be sure to know
Coz I ain't the type to put on a show
We all have different personalities. We should accept it instead of making judgments about a person

Akshi Hargoon Feb 28
There's so much I want to say to you but when I'm with you
All I have is words unspoken
Some times there's conversation that you would love to have, but when you do get the chance to do so, all those thoughts evade you

What if we wake up one day and realize that all along, we have not been living
What if this life, is not life at all
What if we are just puppets being controlled
To provide entertainment
To act on this "life" movie set
Our roles are already set out for us
Our stories already directed
Some have happy endings, some not
Some uncertainty, some just bleek dullness
It's not within our control
And as well go along acting
Experiencing an array of emotions
The puppeteer sits comfortably on his high chair praising himself for what he has created

The Shadow
Akshi Hargoon Feb 15
I feel it hanging over, calling out to me.
Enveloped in my feelings, the answers I can’t see
I try so hard to get away; crying when I begin to pray

Coz we have a talent inside;
A strength that we don’t know;
A strength that’s untried
One to call on, when times are low

Needing Passion
In your embrace
Is where I Wana be
The warmth of your body
Seeping through my pores
Feeling of belonging, wanting, needing
Knowing that I can feel this way only with you
Sends my emotions, passions, on a roller coaster ride
This exstacy, a high like never before
It's all you, only you
It's has always been and will always be just you

My Lifeline
Akshi Hargoon Feb 14
I lie awake, unable to put my thoughts at rest.

Visions of you fill up my mind
I smile just thinking you're one of a kind
You have stood by me through times of unrest
Even though I wasn't at my best

You encouraged me, motivated me, held me when I cried
And told me "It's okay at least you tried"
"We can get through anything" is what you always say;
"As long as we have each other, believe and pray"

I'm only strong coz of you
You are the only one that helps me through
My pillar, my strength, my shelter from the storm
It's coz of you we can face it all
For the special person in my life

Like a lost leaf in the wind she wondered
Roaring like the thunder
Unafraid of what lays ahead
She was still able to tread
A brave soul though exterior
Without revealing her soft interior
A strong spirit going on with daily life
Fighting through all that complicates her life
A smile like hot chocolate on a winters day
Never does she cry one would say
But all that isn't true
Her pillows know of the tears she shed
Late at night while cuddled up in bed

Change just like death is inevitable
How we cope solely depends on us

A Rainy Day
Akshi Hargoon Feb 17
There's such beauty on a r a i n y day
The sound of the r
hitting the ground
As if they trying to make musical sounds
The patterns I see as they drop
Just makes me want to stop and watch

There's such beauty on a r a i n y day
If only more people could say
They don't stop to take notice of this beauty
Coz they are all in a rush to perform their duties

If only one would stop and say, "what a beautiful day hooray! "
If only they would rejoice to see
This natural beauty that comes for free
Nature appreciation

My Love & Enemy
Akshi Hargoon Feb 20
I gave you my heart and soul to hold
But you let it break
My heart was as pure as gold before
And now it feels fake
I knew it was you I shouldn't trust
Coz now my heart is covered in rust
Rust that can't be removed
Guess I'm left feeling fooled

I knew I should have trusted my gut
But it was out of my control
All my senses had become shut
As I had been cajoled
Why had you pretended to be mine?
You pathetic, obnoxious cold-hearted swine
You brought with you a promise of love
Yet all I received was a cold heartless shove
We have experienced what this felt like and always wondered why me? What did I do to get this?
Akshi Hargoon Feb 13
In silence I hear the words creep through my mind;
Latching onto my thoughts like a parasitic vine.
Darkness surrounds me with no room for light;
Yet I somehow feel quite alright.
It has a warmth, a comforting that only I can relate too;
Something that makes me feel like I'm going to make it through.
A safe haven built just for me to escape;
From life's dreaded escapades
Sometimes all you need is the lights turned off and some quiet time with your thoughts
