I am a Woman
Neha Srivastava Aug 2017
I am a woman , I should be timid - They say
I am a human , I know no limit  - I say,

My existence is not meant for your judgment
Crushing me is not a sign of your triumphant,

My love for you has always been abundant
Why am I the one to make all the adjustments,

Look into my eyes , you'll see a twinkle
Savaging it , is so sinful,

My demand for freedom makes you reluctant
Clothed in societal norms , I have to bear its repercussion,

How are the governing laws so different for Both
What makes you so nervous of my growth,

Why do I have to fight for what is my right
Why do you enjoy my plight,


Being submissive is declared my attire
No one hears what my heart desires,

I am not the one to dance on your note
I am a volcano that erupts on my own,

I don't demand anything extraordinary
All I seek is equality,

Equality to Breathe without fear
Equality to be safe my dear!!!!!
A tribute to Equality of a woman

Demons Inside My Head
Neha Srivastava Dec 2017
Every morning ,throughout the year
I hear demons in my head shouting loud around my ear
Lacing me with antagonism
drowning me into deep rooted negativism
I feel trapped in their grip
as they keep Pushing me to darkest corners like an adandoned ship
I lie on my bed unwanted and unheard
My mind is half asleep and my eyes are blurred
They made way through me for reasons unknown
It seemed easy to make them one of my own
Eyes half asleep ,I see a gleam of light
All I know is to fight with all my might
Exhausted as I manage to Chain the monster within me
Not afraid of the roars, I'll make them bend down their knees
This fight was mine , though the Battle is to be won

You Lost Me
Neha Srivastava Nov 2017
I was so busy breaking up myself into pieces and left myself destroyed
That I couldnt realize You used each bit of mine filling up your void

Dont write me off coz I am not done yet
You can turn away but I am not over yet

With nothing left I can recreate a magic
Honey my growth game is fanatic

As you choose to betray me
I pity you , for there's no another 'Me'

I stand here proud as I watch you leave
Coz I didnt lose you , You lost ME

Myself
Neha Srivastava Dec 2017
You might not know the real me
The One you see and roams free
and the other whom you read locked in my poetry
I am a soothing breeze when heard
I could be a volcano in words
Gentle as a dewdrop on your window in a beautiful winter morning
I am the storm trapped in my pages rumbling and alarming.
Flip in the pages once ready for the thunder storm and fire flashes
You'll meet the whole of me once this dust settles.

Love
Neha Srivastava Jul 2017
Love O Love...
U Pour Pure Blood...
You had my soul with the innocent glitter...
Ahh..you slaughtered it with no jitter???
Wounded & Bruised I get into my last slumber.
As I fall freely...
I forgive you my love willingly...
Love O Love..
U Pour Pure Blood...

Extremes
Neha Srivastava Jun 2020
There is no right or wrong
Living in the "Now" shan't always be the norm
Partly existing in the past
absorbing the essence and holding the grasp
Counting on the unknowns
and wanting them to be one of my own.
This is Me..
Breathing on these extremes

Promise
Neha Srivastava Jul 2017
I am an emotional fool I say ,
yes ..so is my heart that feels the promise made wid every beat ..
and so are my eyes that lives that promise with every blink..

Promises are made to be broken they say..
Try not to ...as you are also breaking my tender heart full of hopes..

My heart is shattered ..it says nothing now..
just beating for u...
My eyes are closed. Says nothing now..
just full of tears rolling down for u..

My Mind is so clever that laughs and says
'Told u .. not to destroy urself just for a promise made'...

Disconnect
Neha Srivastava Apr 2018
It didn't take her long to realize and start afresh
that he only professes love having his hands on her flesh,
How skillfully he practiced this mind body disconnect?
How secretly he kept his heart remain unaffected.
It was then she decided to let him go,
For her, love was an utmost amalgamation of both mind and body.

Date
Neha Srivastava Jun 2017
Tonite she'll again take her thoughts to bed
Far away from fear
Let it be surreal
Her heart skips a beat
When she meets her dream
With the ticking clock
She explores her thoughts
Ahh she finds peace
Long time she at ease
They giggled they laughed out
Together they danced their hearts out
Under the moonlight
She paused for a while n held him tight
Her thoughts snuggled her gently
With giving her love abundantly
With teary eyes she waited for the dawn
To bring the reality *******
Her thoughts whispered going my love
Waiting for tonite when we shall be together my love

Woman
Neha Srivastava Dec 2017
I am my curves
I am also the fire raging through my nerves

Waiting for my shining armour
Sometimes I chose to be the one

Every month I bleed real blood
For you I could be soft as a rose bud

I love my freedom
I could give birth to next generation

I am the words of your poetry
I get paint on your canvas so quietly
I am half of your society
I am worshipped as your diety

So Tell me whats causing this ambiguity
Give me Equality
Cheers to Womanhood

My Shadow
Neha Srivastava Jul 2017
It was a bright sunny noon
In the month of June..
When I was walking hopelessly all alone.
My pace was slow..
I was feeling so low..
Hue and cry in my mind..
I hear a footstep closely behind..
As I turned back..
All I could see was pitch black..
Ohh, I felt a strange connection..
You were no one but my distorted reflection.
You knew all my woes..
You were all along the flow- You were my 'SHADOW'.
Tears filled my eyes..
As I hear u promise..
"Even when the sun will go down
And there will be darkness all around..
But my love, dont make your heart pound..
I'll embrace you with all my might..
You just have to hold me tight..
For all such times when u'll think I am gone..
Remember, you'll find me within you
And Together we shall be 'ONE'

You , take it easy
Neha Srivastava Aug 2017
You ,Go easy on yourself for a while
Take a deep breath and come out of your self imposed exile,

Don't hesitate to uncover the curtain
Meet the sight of butterflies dancing in your garden,

Erase the boundaries that have been drawn on your canvas
Start afresh
Paint with a free flowing brush,

Remember once in a life time 'You' happen
Don't let 'Your Life' get trapped in,

Discover yourself uncover yourself
Even if someone disapproves of your 'Real self',

Choose to bend only till the time you don't break
Hold your head high and turn away before your heart aches,

Please walk away from what is perturbing
Away from the chaos and people who are disturbing,

While you walk away don't hold the grudges so fiercely
Don't let the negativity damage you severely,

Coz you aren't bitter
You are an ocean of nectar,

This is your poetry fit in your own words
Be your own Muse , Rhyme your own prose!!!!

My Flight
Neha Srivastava Jul 2017
Bit by bit I build my sky
My wings are ready to fly high
High above the land of wrath and agony
Rising above the valleys of self atrophy
Far away from the cacophony deception
Where no one could judge my reflection
As I reach the realm of rainbows
Clouds pour nothing but love
The wind sings nothing but love
My soul soaks in love
Mesmerized by this divinity,
I meet my destiny

Depression
Neha Srivastava Aug 2017
Dear Mr. Depression
I have realized I am your Obsession,

You have made me a partner of your loneliness
Why are you guiding me to darkness,

Swayed away by your hypnotism
I make my way towards negativism,

I have lost interest in everything but you
People around are having no clue,

Are you my friend or my foe?
Coz you make my head blow,

I cannot deal with my blood boiling anger
Teary eyes I look out for an answer,

My days are so lonely my nights are so long
I now have a fear of the breaking dawn,

I feel so weak and numb
All I could do is to keep mum,

I am not getting killed , I am being suffocated
My inner peace is long awaited,

You make me so tired to fight
I beg you , This isn't right,

Shackles in my feet I can barely move
My Mind is in your trap but My heart disapproves,

The love in my heart is meant to overpower
You are unaware of the strength of my will power,

Slowly and steadily I change my direction
Your world was nothing but a deception,

I not only want to live I want to feel alive
Your foul intentions cannot keep me deprived,

Far away I see a light
Hope is standing on that side,

I promise not to look back while I start my Journey
Your pleas to keep me along are not worthy,

I might be late
But I'll make sure I reach that gate!!!

Its not about me , its you
Neha Srivastava Nov 2017
On a lovely morning, I stand on the bus stop
Amidst the traffic running non stop
Mumbling my presentation which was due
Our eyes met and yes it was you
Your sight reminded me of our fight
When I had resisted your advancements last night
As i take a step back unsure of your foul intentions
I sensed a splash and pain
Was it Acid on my face?
I cried as I burnt
You feel so proud to see me melt
The pain makes me exhausted
I feel helpless as you leave me distorted...

On a beautiful evening, I walk on a street
I look so neat in a shirt and my new Jeans
You came from the other side of the road
You pinch me hard as you slowed
You whistled, you giggled
Your devilicious stare
Make my skin look bare
I am frozen , I am numb
I lower down my face with anguish as I hurriedly paced.

It was a dark night when I came out of my house
To get some urgent medicines for my spouse
Wish the darkness could convey
That you were hiding in the corner waiting for your prey
You grab my waist, you twitch my wrist
I yelled I begged
Not even your hands on my lips could silence my screams
I trembled with pain
As you came inside me again and again
Exhausted and satisfied you roar  cheer
You kicked me as you have won this battle
And left me besides my broken medicine bottlle.

Its not the sunrise,its not the sunset
Its not about if we have ever met
Its not my age
Its not my face
Then what it is all about??
Its about you and your insanity

Who Am I?
Neha Srivastava Jun 2017
My Body - in quest of pleasure
My heart - seeking for love
My soul - in pursuance of Solace


They say the amalgamation of these forms my existence..
Deciphering this code will get me closer to brilliance

why to strangulate by sticking them together with a thread
When they all have different paths to tread?

Set them free..
Let them all reach their destiny...

Love so rare
Neha Srivastava Nov 2017
I had not realized until now
The love that I was longing for and wasn't allowed
It had always existed within me since eternity
How My mind has loved my heart so gorgeously
It sketches , it paints , it sculpts a world so new
of everything that lies in its preview
My mind envisages so beautifully
and let my heart absorb it presuambly
This gift is the only reality
as it gives hope to let my heart beat willingly
The day you'll be tired of your paint and brush
My Heartbeats will make no rush
Before you calm down together
Your love for my heart is rarest of rare...

Inspiration
Neha Srivastava Jul 2017
When hope fades, despair flutters..
Resilience breaks, mind clutters..
On the verge of breaking down..
Oh I see you like a gleam of light all around..
You sprinkle life..
I am revived..
The Darkness settles as the dawn breaks..
With moist eyes I could see you leave..
But I promise there's no grief..
As my Inner self retains your Aura of mystery...

Wanderer
Neha Srivastava Jun 2017
Gazing at the moonlight
Shining and bright
I look out for signs
To get some respite
With the blowing wind
With the vibrating chime
I look out for signs
To keep me alive
With the tides on the shore
I think how much of myself I should be feelingly yours
As I battle with deciphering this code
I feel my heart all alone
As I look out for signs
Deep and Deep I fall into them
Alas I find no answer no respite

Let us talk hands in hands
Neha Srivastava Jan 2018
The Hues and cries in your mind.
are the sounds from the universe inside you
and its there for a while

Scars of your mind unseen to the world
recite a Tale of your battle without an armour
and its been a while

Lips curled up setting a fake smile on your face
unfold the magical courage you hold
and its been a while

Release the universe,
Pick up your shield ,
Stop being this strong,
Tell me about your pain and grief
I'll share mine
Meanwhile the world goes on
Let us talk hands in hands.

Trying to move on from you has been the toughest task so far
Until I realized it wasnt betrayal from your side at all
It was mere the lack of willingness you possess
Why was it so hard to confess
With your phrases , you placed me high
But your endeavors never made you mine..

Mental Health
Neha Srivastava Apr 2018
A bruise, a cut and the dripping blood
makes you sensitive like a rose bud,
Perturbed for what lies on the surface of the skin
Cared to notice what experiencing underneath?
Mental scar, depressed mood and grief so extended
why are all these left unattended?
Are these not signs of mental illness?
Then Why are these dealt with Prejudices?

Take me inside you is what he pleaded

smilingly she locked her heart  thinking about his unkept words;

As the dawn breaks over the horizon,
With the changing shades,I witness the sky being a Chameleon...
The spectrum of light

A smile flutters on my lips,with the hope of something new.
But a  tear rolls down for what is not there in the view...

Bid Adieu
Neha Srivastava Mar 2018
By the fortuitous act of destiny we met
I am here for you always, you said
Your words never aligned with your actions
This didnt govern the laws of my attraction
You kept promising
I kept believing
Hopes in my heart were crushed by your unkept words
But I kept covering the extra yard
Standing on the crossroad I accepted something I always knew
This realization cleared the view
There is one who you belong to
There is something else you crave for
This is when I started giving up
I didnt let go off you
I just let go off the willingness to be with you

Don't be this strong
Neha Srivastava Jan 2018
How Skillfully she has Mastered the art
to build her walls up high from the start
keeping her beyond reach and secluded
She now enjoys being excluded

How magically her tears became her slaves
residing on the brim of her eyes making her brave
Slowly and steadily will they come out
knowing she's lonely and there is no one around.

How beautifully her heart holds
all her feelings inside
until midnight
when they unfold
behind her hands covering her mouth
so that no one hears her shouts

Darling , I am in total awe of you
You are a master piece
coz these skills are rarely seen
These are not signs of weakness
This is just your uniqueness
For commanding your emotions unbelievably
You deserve a bow undeniably

Who says you need to be fixed and there's something wrong
All you need to learn is to 'STOP BEING THIS STRONG'

Transient Grief
Neha Srivastava Dec 2017
Life is transient and brief
So is your pain and grief
For something so momentary and fragile
Ruining yourself is so futile
Open the cage of your heart
where the grief has been locked and trapped
Set it free and let it flight high
Allow it to meet you eye on eye
Let it be with you like a tangent
This is the way to keep it abandoned
Grief , Transient , Pain , love

Your intimidating eyes
Encapsulates the skies
Of Thunder and Hailstorm
Yet you are so warm
Your hair leaning down
When no ones around
Carelessly kissing your forehead
As if something has been left unsaid
Ohh Look at your mole on the Right side of your shoulder
As if beholding a story so older
That birth mark on your left arm
Is nothing but a charm
Mole , Love , intimidating , Mole
