THE SHRINE AND THE ALTAR
Bani Marathe Apr 2018
Of all earthly structures
The shrine and the altar,
Examples of existence of wonders
In the spectra of misery and mishanter.
The moment you enter,
The wall collapses
Amid the giver and the taker.
Faith aligns
Washing the grit off the ascender,
Souls synchronize
And sing to the mysterious amender.

Living as a poet...!!
Bani Marathe Mar 2017
Holding a mind and a heart working together
Fighting the moral conflicts that never end forever
They are the dreamers and the believers
Living a life different from the regulars

Emotions play an important role
Practicality dwells in the corner of the hole
They like to be in a state of utopia
Constantly looking for a better euphoria

But that is often sensed as a mistake and not as a gift
It creates imbalance and quantifies the reason of sorrow
Advises overflow to bring you down to reality
But they will never understand how hard it is
To ask someone to be somebody not meant to be

Escaping Innocence
Bani Marathe Mar 2017
I wish I had some more of my childhood left
It was too soon too much to lose
Those enchanting smiles
Those ravishing times
The boundless mind that dreamt sublime

It's hard to believe those were things of past
What is left of now is brutal reality
Somehow I held onto my faith in love
But they made me realize it is unreal
We are all alike and we must follow the law
Live in the shadows and love the stench of lies

Innocence forever has left our side
With profound negativity we abide
Proudly we accept life as our fate
And continue to live like a merciful surrogate
I am still exploring the new realms of life
Mediocrity is the winner but it is the truth that suffice

​The way you make me feel
Bani Marathe Mar 2017
You are not mine but sometimes
I pretend and I wish you were.....
I want to love you fearless of this world for sometimes the right things don't always give us the best feelings

Being with you gives me the red feelings
They are deep, strong, dramatic and intense
Take me into your life. Make me a part of it
Come along..Let's conquer the edge of our love and see

Never found a place so peaceful where I felt I belonged
Until the day you took me in your arms
In the very stillness of moment...I came alive
I lost myself in the tranquillity of your love...
And I found you!

I love the way you make me feel
So beautiful and full of zeal
Liberating me of all that is surreal
You transform me into someone so real

I dont want it anymore!
Bani Marathe Feb 2017
What he wanted to give me now
I didn't want that anymore!!

Why not give it another chance?
Many questions are left unanswered

I have made up my mind and decided to cross the line
But they still want me to simply stay at my crossroads

I have nothing to give or to accept
When it's all over for me then how do I refrain

Before it's too late for anything to protect
I am saving the good moments and moving away

There was too much pain in living alone
Wanting to be with you and your love regrown

But now I don't hold any grudges for more
All that you want to give is not what I want anymore!!

The nights are longer

The sky is higher

Dreams have been painted

The fate of silence

Is yet to conspire...

Feeling Lost..
Bani Marathe Feb 2017
I have lost the best part of me somewhere

My heart is empty with nothing to fill

Everything is falling apart and I feel helpless

The wall around me is slowly breaking down

Don't know how long I can resist the fall

After all these years I have nothing to talk

Silence has become my new identity

I feel intimidated to trust myself

Tried to put on happy faces all the time

But it has created a bigger hole instead

Pain and guilt are killing me on the inside

I find myself lost even holding his hand

Being happy is what I am missing the most

I am fighting hard to hold myself together

Having lost my soul I see no turning back now

With each other
Bani Marathe Jan 2017
How is it possible?
Can emotions last this long?
It's been ages we've heard from each other
Still the bond is so strong so beautiful
Feels like it was yesterday...
And sixteen years of life has passed.

Never experienced life this strange
Dreams that looked weird and far away
Have now taken a new beginning....

Eyes are filled with sweet memories
Bringing back moments of serenity.
Emotions so deep binding us together with absolute divinity.

Our lives are contrast and censorious
Separated in time yet bonded together.
Love has no bounds...
I live in him, he lives in me
With vows unbreakable
Till the last breath we take.....

It happens..
Bani Marathe Jan 2017
It happens..

When everything feels just right
The aura around you shining so bright

Concedes to you everything you lack
Allowing nothing to hold you back

Ends all pointless confusions
Banishing all inhibitions

Let's you be so sure in life
Like you never did before

Yes it happens..

Hold on to your faith
Just a little more

It might take a while but
It will find you for sure

It will blend your life
With lightness and satiety
Making you a part of serendipity

Love happens..!!

Unforgettable..
Bani Marathe Jan 2017
Unforgettable! That's what you are
Diving deep into my thoughts all the more..
Never meant to complicate your life
Always wanted to be by your side
But Alas! My heart is so weak and so tempted.

Lived every moment spent with you
Loved every dream I dreamt when not with you
Wanted to share every secret with you but
Never thought of falling in love with you.

What is it that exists between us so strong
Pulls me in closer everytime I try to breakfree
Feeling so helpless trying to hold my emotions
Failing miserably but still not giving up.

It wasn't your fault, may be a bit mine
But I am glad and hold no regrets
You gave me the best time of my life.
Unforgettable... yes indeed it is!!

Frozen dreams
Bani Marathe Jan 2017
​Standing alone in the land of frozen dreams
She awaits him in all extremes
Unknown enough yet she entrusts her life with him
Unconditional is her love and strange as it seems

He gleams through the darkness as she devours
Her soul rejoices with beauty so rife
She rests herself on the bed of flowers
And feels the soft touch of colours in her life

Their eyes talk building dreams monumental
Expressing thoughts deeper than love
In every glance..He paints her eyes
with varied shades of hidden emotion
Glorifying her beauty to a new dimension

There is something that keeps them separate
There is something that ties them together
It will always remain an unsolved mystery
In the lines and verses of her silent poetry

To let go..
Bani Marathe Jan 2017
​He says love me simple with
Love that is less complicated.
It is not that I don't want to
But all I am asking is to trust me some more.
Stranger than fiction I wait at a distance
It has all changed just in an instance.

Why it has to be so cruel everytime
Now that I don't expect him to love me anymore
May be it was never unconditional as I thought
But I will still rejoice every moment we were close.
I wish one day he gets to know
I love him enough to let him go and not regret
The time he gave me
I will still love him though...

Silent whisper
Bani Marathe Jan 2017
​Everyday..every moment..every second that I breathe
I feel your breath come alive in me
Being with you makes my journey complete
You are the sweetest part of my journey
Without which I am no more me

When I love u
It is so untrue
Am I dreaming or...
Someone has really painted me blue.
Reflections from past are binding us
In a bond stronger than life.
You love me deep with all your heart
And give me emotions I was stranger to.
I am living a dream larger than life
Craving for you more and more each day.
You have become my need, my fantasy.
How to let go of you....
When it feels like home with you!!!

— The End —
