Dedicated to all the writers and poets out there -

I see your distressed and tormented face
layered with all the doubts
that were once beneath your jovial and radiant face
I truly don’t know why
nobody ever told you
that there’s no hole in your boat
and the oars
are perfectly fine, my rower,
to reach the shore
and that you can do so much more;
for these worries hold no power
as you will learn to adjust your boat with
every rise and fall
the crisis that you see with every lashing of the tides
like a storm
won’t last longer
ain’t that stronger
like you
for, I know, you will outperform
like always you did
do it...
do it...
before your boat sinks
and before my pen weeps.

if you ever felt the world is impassive
and that nobody sees your pain
or the trauma you go through
or when at night, you contemplate on
how shall these horrendous things
will come to end
Remember: the world around you is waiting -
waiting to see
the power of your creative mjolnir
waiting to welcome you at the shore
do it…
do it…
before your boat sinks
and before my pen weeps.

don’t let my pen weep - Sumit Asrani

don’t let my pen weep - Sumit Asrani

I miss her
like the crops misses the rain
on a blazing summer day.
She moved on with another guy
without saying a goodbye.

I miss her
like the crops misses the rain
on a blazing summer day.
She taught me everything,
except to live without her.

She had promised me -
to never leave me alone,
and that we will be together
like the sun and its rays -
on earth and in heaven;
helping the world with the light of our love.

But, the rusty relationship of ours,
took her away
and I stood the blow of the storm
while thinking over the games that life play.
I wish I could hide somewhere like a worm
behind the doors
and could forget everything that happened
maybe someone would open the door
and crush me to death
then perhaps,
I could make her mine -
in the next birth;
or could live with her again -
in heaven, as she promised me.

But, for now,
she left with another guy
without saying a goodbye.
And I, MISS HER!

The unfulfilled promise, Sumit Asrani

I waited too long to get approval to start writing. Don't repeat that same mistake.

If you are waiting for approval to unleash creativity and to do that creative work, then you are doing it wrong. Not only that, you are heading at high speed in the wrong direction.

It was 2 at night
I wish I could describe the beauty of crescent moon
or about the starry night
but I couldn’t see, neither the moon
nor the stars,
all I could ever feel - that it was a gloomy night
and the only thing my eyes saw
or pretended to see
were the closed locked-shutters
and the watch-guards outside each shop
dozing off on the chair
like a withered flower

I couldn’t walk an inch anymore
finally, I sat on a bench
or maybe on a footpath
I don’t remember,
but it was hard
I said life is hard, too
but writing makes it easy to live that way,
I suppose.

That night I realised,
I don’t need the moon or the stars
nor there is any need to write about them -
to beautify or glorify
my life
all I need is pen and paper
That’s it.

That night
I found a friend within me
And that night
I found a writer within me

– Sumit Asrani, That night


Thanks for accepting my request.

I'm a Chemical Engineer, work as a freelance trainer and started penning down, initially simplifying technical concepts into easily digestible web content helped me to put words together and then slowly the desire to pen poetries and stories took charge over my heart, mind and pen.

I love reading and writing - classics, fiction, non-fiction, poetry.

Last year, on Mother's day, I self-published a short story on Amazon Kindle - Faith Perfection.

I write poetry to escape from a chaotic and dramatic day.

I write non-fiction and blog about creativity, love sharing my experience about tapping and nurturing creativity on my website/blog.

I'm learning and trying to understand each and every minute detail about the craft - writing and as Hemingway said: "We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master."
I believe this community will be of great help to this fellow apprentice. And would be happy if my inputs would be of any help to anyone in any way to grow.

Glad to be here and looking forward to know more about others out there.

Hello! Sip by sip and word after word, finish it off!

P.S. Hope introduction wasn't too long!
