Hold my hand.

Hold my hand,
Stay with me,
Run your hands through my hairs,
Wait for my sigh!
This darkness bewilders my mind,
Was all of it a lie?
The waves of the sea and the splashing streams;
The riddle and the lines in between.

Hold my hand,
Stay a while!
Emotional overflow?
Tell me something I don’t know.
In the lap of mountains, at high noon,
Show me sunset and e’en hues.
Give me memories,
tracing new stories
As our souls inspire poetry.

Hold my hand
For a while more;
Why does it feel so right?
I want to touch your soul,
and you to touch mine.
Entwined fingers, warm smiles,
and the slow breeze passing by.
Moments fleeting within
The blink of an eye.

Hold my hand,
One last time;
I wonder,
Is all of this for real?

If you can’t be mine;
Let go of me, gently
I have a year to heal.

      1. Indeed.
        It’s been long but I’ve been good. The pandemic has me getting more free than ever so I’ve been utilizing it to learn lots of new skills💚
        Thanks for asking!


  1. Hiii Anushka
    Again I am wondering how you come up with beautiful poems as always. This is poignant and the way your words expressing emotions is amazing. I loved last stanza a lot ❤️

  2. I don’t know why but being the closest one to you, I want to make sure that if you don’t find anyone in world to hold that hand, you’ll always find Sumit who’d be there for you.

    It seems, this wasn’t just a poem but full of emotions which you’ve poured, Anushka.

    1. I’m so happy to see you here Sumit. I’m so pleased that you liked this.

      And about holding hand…when I have such an amazing friend like you, I’ve nothing to be worried about, right?
      Thank you so much Sumit.


  3. Poem right after the first stanza played a tune in my head.
    It’s like a strong melody playing in my head while I go on read it further.
    Unlike every other time where I read your post again and again and getting processed in my head…but this one… before even going to second stanza the tune plays and stays in head throughout the poem.
    …but the best part about the poem..kept telling heartbreaking truth… Leaving the strongest impact from those lines.
    I am loving this anushka special ending of these poetries.
    This was a heartbreaking imaginary rollercoasters but the special touch of you makes it unique from every other poetry there is.
    Thank you for creating this.
    Precious is precisely precious 💙
    Keep that intact.

    Although , even if I say this …this won’t be that big of a thing , coming from a total inexperienced person…but I am still saying it…you are mastering all the poetic devices… exactly how it is suppose to be.
    Right amount of rhymes
    Right kind of pace.
    Perfect imagery.
    The way you are getting close to perfection perfectly…I am sure you aren’t going to leave any goals untouched.
