Ocean’s A Mystery

Those roaring waves call me,
Those blue sapphires allure me.
But, the warm sand keeps me in,
My soul’s trapped in a human’s sin.

Expressions are never crystal clear,
Every smile holds dried tears.
There’s pain hidden in each joy,
A hint of regret, when we rejoice.

The ocean unravels unspoken mysteries,
Summoning all the bittersweet memories.
Met with a strange calm amidst the chaos,
It has sorted out my scattered thoughts.

And now the sand’s turned cold,
All those gossips have been sold.
Slowly, the water moulds my fragile body,
I surrender, to feel what I couldn’t see.

-Ishita Gupta

  2. Beautiful my dear friend. This poem is near and dear to my heart. I can ride each feeling with you Ishita.

    “Every smile holds dried tears.
    There’s pain hidden in each joy,
    A hint of regret, when we rejoice.”

    Gorgeous lines describing a mixture of emotions. Nothing is simple about the emotions we feel, often mixed.

    Congratulations on teaching 200 followers. I remember how thrilled I was with 100. It is like a loving, nurturing, and supportive family, this community.

    Have a wonderful day sweet friend. Love to you and all those you love.
    Hugs ❤️💕🌺🤗Joni

      1. It is entirely my pleasure dear friend. I really did find your lovely words near to my heart.

        I am happy for you about getting exposure because for me, it was an amazing opportunity to learn so much from others. Exposure to music, art, flash fiction, and gorgeous poetry. It has enriched and blessed my life. You will start to find that there is so much to read and learn from your followers but not enough time to spend with even your favorites.

        You have an amazing week too my friend.

        Love 💕 and hugs 🤗

      1. Congratulations on reaching 200!! Many more to come! And sorry, I forgot to wish you earlier.

        I am having some issues with WordPress lately, and changing the name made it worse. So I had to change it again.

          1. Oh…I don’t know why I thought you followed my blog. I made a list of all the followers in a doc as my WP was messing with me. I thought I saw your name as well. But hey, you must ONLY follow my blog if you like my work. I believe in real followers & organic growth….I don’t follow a blog myself just for the sake of following & traffic. So please feel free to feel how you feel about my blog 🙏✨❤️. Much love

  8. Lovely verse Ishita. Serene and calming. However the finale was a little bit of mixed emotions and I love that about your poetry.
    It certainly urges a person to think and that is the greatest achievement of any poem. When it asks to review or think, you know that a Poem is a masterpiece and I can say this one is.
    Congratulations on your 200! Here’s to so many more( 200s and wonderful posts such as these.)
    Take care.

    1. Oh dear Shanyu, you have left me speechless with this comment. Thank you so much for those beautiful words my friend. I’m so glad you enjoyed this poem, and it makes me beyond happy that you think this is a masterpiece. I have no words to thank you enough.
      Thanks a lot dear!!
      Sending love and hugs, and a beautiful yellow rose. 💐🌺💞
      Take care


      1. Dear Ishita,
        I take absolute pleasure in writing this to you. This one was indeed beautiful. I’m glad to know that the comment meant so much and I hope you keep writing such beautifully.
        Thank you friend. Have a wonderful day.
        And yes, the rose is beautiful. Yellow happens to be my favourite colour, so you’ve got that spot on.
        Sending you begonias.

          1. Indeed a lovely coincidence. No wonder the heart is yellow too.
            Wow! Yellow’s beautiful.
            Let me ask you. What is your favourite colour? Is it green because if your biology background?

            Liked by 1 person

              1. Nice. The green part was more of a passive guess. I have got yellow even though I love biology so that that. Red is certainly bold. Blood. Love. Hearts. Quite a versatile color you’ve got!

                  1. Biology is beautiful. Though I’m like a novice at it, I know I like it. And especially the undiscovered biology. By the way, a wonderful way to end the comment. A red and a yellow heart! Great🧡

AND….CONGRATULATIONS!!! That doesn’t surprise me at all!!! YAY! Cheers and ROCK ON!!! 🤗❤️😊
