But no Cigar

Everything was going right
We were meant to be together
He promised me togetherness forever
There was something between us
That we spoke through eyes
All things were set right
Could hear wedding bells ringing in my ears with delight
Until one fateful day he met a dame who promised him limelight
To move on further with his life he left me in between
A promise tattered away in disguise
He was out of my sight
Love lost its meaning when he bid goodbye
I was left lovelorn
Letting my heart whine
With a broken heart I cussed my life
That which bought me shameful insight
Squalid eyes haunted my soul day and night
I decided to Perch on grave
Closing my eyes
It took years to come out from that sad demise
Everyone saw me closed
But they could not catch the sight of cigar burning my life


I was born up in Delhi and has been living in the city since then; I have completed my graduation from the Delhi University. I come from a respectable and close-knit family. As an individual, my endearing nature and cheerful personality makes me popular among friends. I am an avid reader – I am fond of reading anything to do with spiritualism, psychology, the psychic realm, reincarnations and autobiographies. My favorite authors include Brain Weiss, Paulo Coelho, Brian Tracy, Gary Chapman, Louise Hay and Doreen Virtue, Sudha Murthy, Priya Kumar among many others. I feel my connect with books not only enhances my knowledge but also inspires me. I have put a pen to my thoughts and created book of poems called Love beyond Veils, book of short stories The golden hour and the gang of wonder kids available on amazon and Flipkart I am also fond of music and plays the guitar too. I have keenness in mysticism and the occult – I am a certified Pranic and Reiki healer, Angel therapist, Tarot Card reader and an astrologer. I share a deep love for animals and this is reflected in the fact that I took up the healing courses ostensibly to alleviate the suffering of stray animals. I practice meditation too. Professionally, I began my career with an international airline; then switched to work for diplomatic missions. I sat for the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) exam in 2009 to test and enhance my knowledge in the language.
