Beautiful Chaos

Beautiful Chaos

I build these walls to safeguard my heart

For it pains to see people come and depart

Stubborn yet fragile they stand tall

Waiting to melt at your one single call…

Break those walls and enter into my heart

Live there forever and never do part

For you’re my sweetheart Adonis

The one I so fervently miss

To you I love , O my Eros

My heart is engulfed in a beautiful chaos.

-Raashi Hasteer

Entwined till eternity


Entwined till eternity

Beneath the starlit sky

Hand in hand , sat my love and I

Soft roving breeze kissing his hair

Gently ,  the way our mother’s care…

Turning his face partly toward mine

I could see on his face a charming smile

‘ Tell me O my sweetheart , my love ‘.

‘What do I mean to thee? ‘

‘How deep is thy love for me ?’, asked he.

‘Look into mine eyes  and see therein

Thou shalt see an ocean of love within

As you plunge into the waters deep

Thou shalt see my heart that beats

…For then all voices silence themselves

My heart to your heart shall say

And with every tune of our hearts beating in harmony

…..Our souls shall be entwined forever till eternity !’

-Raashi Hasteer

Tale Of Our Love


Tale Of Our Love

Moirai , the harbinger of fate

Opened gently my life’s gates

Tiptoed you came like morning rays

Fading my sorrow in umpteen ways

Slowly and gently you made your way

Mystically my heart began to sway

As you into my heart did walk

Mine heart with thine got firmly locked

Secrets of happiness you revealed

Our love no longer remained concealed

My and mine was us and ours

As we spent talking for hours and hours !

I felt our love till eternity shall last

Healing our lives of the wounds of past

We forgot the lyrics of our love song

Alas ! Our forever didn’t last long…

My heart still craves to be with you

For my love for you was truly true

I wish we could be together again

Be the panacea for my intense pain !

But , in hearts of hearts I realize

Things shall not be the same ever again

I see Cupid taking back its arrow

Was our love really that shallow?

Destiny and time has played its role

My soul thus parted from your soul !

-Raashi Hasteer

…If hearts could say !


…If hearts could say

My heart whispers notes of love

Words so tender like a beauteous dove

Kissing the realms of my thirsty soul

Drenched in love , my being is whole !

Lips fail to utter what the heart doth say

If hearts could speak , I wish they may

I wish hearts were visible to one’s eyes

Then one would know where true beauty lies

Beauty isn’t the pretty face or lovely eyes

It’s heart where beauty truly lies

Love her for her heart not her face

That’s true love’s true embrace !!

-Raashi Hasteer

“Love” … Isn’t it?


LOVE…Isn’t it?

Many a promise are made
Veiling truth under a facade
With sugary words they flatter you
Behold ! All is lie and nothing is true.
They say they’ll always make you smile
And holding hands, cover each and every mile
They promise to love you ~ real and true
And color your life in umpteen hues

But to their words , pay no heed
Words do differ a lot from deeds
Their brittle promises break soon
They are no longer your protective cocoon
And they leave you deserted and marooned
You got to realize it later or soon
That words and reality isn’t the same
You’re no longer their princess , O pretty dame !

You cry , cry and cry !
You’re hurt but still you try
… And one day when pain reaches its zenith
All your ” love ” gets buried underneath
You gave up on them with a weary heart
Thus with your “love” you had to part.
Calling this “love” in itself is a shame.
When everything no longer remains the same
Love that ends never really started…
If from your “love ” you have been parted.
Relations today are so demeaning
Love itself has lost its meaning !!

-Raashi Hasteer

A Weary Soul

A Weary Soul

Thou standeth at my grave to cry

When I needed you , Did you ever try?

Thou standeth at my grave to wail

Did you mollify when I was pale?

Thou standeth at my grave to yell

Did you hold my hand whenever I fell?

Thou standeth at my grave to whine

Did you see when for you I did pine?

Thou standeth at my grave to weep

Did your promises you ever keep?

Thou standeth at my grave to moan

Did you hug me when I felt forlorn?

Thou standeth hither . I know not why?

Is something left for you to try?

You made my life a living hell

And now thou standeth here to yell?

A whacked , withered , weary soul ~ here I lie !

Do whatever because my soul won’t die

Before my soul to heaven proceeds

I request you sir – Please Recede !

-Raashi Hasteer

My Sweetheart Canine

(This poem is for all dogs . Particularly for my future pet)


My Sweetheart Canine

I crave you each passing day

So much that it is hard to say

My hands here I stretch out

Put your tender claws, don’t back out !

Let me hold you so close

My secrets I shall disclose

For I know you won’t ever judge

I shoo you ; you’ll have no grudge

You’ll love unconditionally , I’ll do the same

My feelings for you have no name

You’ll soothe me – grief laden

With you my home is my Eden

Had I never looked into a dog’s eyes

I would have never known what love comprise

Come home and be mine

I Love You – My Sweetheart Cannine.

-Raashi Hasteer
