Lightning Rhymes Review 2

I’m delighted, honoured & deeply touched by reading this heartfelt review by Sinead McGuigan (Instagram handle: @sineadmcgpoetry) on my debut book – Lightning Rhymes…My gratitude to Sinead for reading my book & writing this amazing review on Amazon…No words can describe this feeling…

I shared last time how & when I started writing poems…before that, I had never written a single line…but I do remember clearly that I would simply “sing” to myself on my way home from the train station…that 10 minutes walk…yeah, I sound best if you put noise cancellation hearing protection on 😉…I was like…”nah, it’s not me”…what I’m actually saying is that I did sense something but that’s about it…but that changed in late 2017…a state of self-realization…I felt this crazy need to write those words down…I’m sharing my very first poem below…I was like “what’s happening to me…in me”…I started writing whenever I would sense words in me…I was admitted to the hospital on 7th Nov 2019…the day I was hit by brain hemorrhage…writing poetry was all I did besides the regular therapies & a bit of chit chatting…poetry helped me…it’s therapeutic in the sense that I could express what I was going through…I even shared my poem with the nurses & therapists 😊😂…I couldn’t have made it this far without them, the municipality, my friends, colleagues, blogger friends & my own will to live…and most importantly, without the beautiful support & love from my family…7th Nov 2021 was my conscious choice to publish my debut book…coz it’s the date of my rebirth…

I’m truly grateful to each & every one of you…for your wonderful support…this book was my dream & it would’ve remained that way if you were not there to show your love…I would only humbly ask you to buy my book if you connect with my lines…if you wish to read my rhymes…Lightning Rhymes…

Wishing You A Very Happy New Year…that’s filled with joy, peace & light…Thank you for your time to read this sharing of mine ✨💛💫

I’ll be sharing another heartfelt review within a week.

Lightning Rhymes Review 1

I’m honoured, humbled & delighted to share this wonderful review by Michelle on my debut book – Lightning Rhymes…Thank you very much for reading my book & writing this review on Goodreads…It’s an amazing feeling to know that my book is well received.

You can find Michelle on: WordPress & Instagram

I won’t ask you to show some love by simply buying my book…coz you’ve already been showing so much love towards my poetry…towards me…I had never dreamt that you – my readers would connect with my poetry…I started writing my lines just for myself back in late 2017…an outlet I found when something clicked in me…when I finally saw a glimpse of myself…my journey of writing poetry started from that point of time…words can’t express how grateful I am to each & every one of you for your wonderful support…I would only humbly ask you to buy my book if you connect with my lines…if you wish to read my rhymes…Lightning Rhymes…

A Human Being

So if I simply write this to you
Would you read it?
Would you get what I mean?
Eye me explicitly
Tear me tenderly
Drop me dramatically
Wet me whimsically

I’m dreaming in this dream
You are with me
Soulful touches
Body heat
Wet lips
Intense eyes
One heart

Yeah, it surely is a dream
Coz I can only see me in reality
Empty touches
Body scream
Dry lips
Soft eyes
Broken heart

Is love only related to a relation with another human?
Is love about feeling, touching & kissing?
Is love about missing, longing & meeting?
Is love about losing, sacrificing & winning?
Is love conditional, seasonal & situational?
Answers I already have coz I know its true meaning

But tonight I’m missing the heat
Tonight I don’t want to really see
My craving to kiss like crazy
And look in the beautiful eyes so deep
Touch the gentle skin tenderly
Forget the world & all those what ifs

But the emptiness in me
Is choking me very slowly
My throat is dry & heavy
My soul is grey & rainy
This moment my body is shivering
Coz I’m feeling once again very lonely

Vulnerability at its peak
Soon I won’t be able to speak
Caged in these feelings like a freak
Running around in circles to be free
Closing my eyes to find the inner peace
But eyes are constantly dripping beads

Yeah, it truly was just a dream
I’m sitting in my room not able to sleep
It’s time to listen to my favorite playlist
Before I sink into my loneliness a few more feet
I’m in tears but I just don’t want to scream
Weak & in pain I can be coz I too am a human being

iSick

Lots of beautiful posts & comments are flowing on my screen
But unfortunately, I ain’t able to read those lovely writings
Coz I’ve been absent from WP & IG for almost a week
It’s just this little thing with me that I feel kinda weak
Cough, cold & fever are knocking my surface constantly
So taking rest most of the time is my current priority
I’ll be back but just know there’s always a constant flow of energy between you & me

Spoken Word Poetry Collaboration: Implore – by Lauren M. Hancock and Navin Manik

Recently, I had this lovely opportunity to work with my dear friend, Lauren of Lauren M. Hancock Poetry and Prose, to write & record a piece together. Lauren is a poet, painter, violinist and above all, a wonderful, sweet & kind being. Please visit her blog, where you’ll find her heartfelt, soulful, raw poetry, prose & spoken word and her beautiful artwork. My gratitude to Lauren for reaching out to me, to make this happen.

Implore

The breaths I take
The steps I sway
When I dance on my feet
My ground is change

The heights I stare
The case is space
The light has shades
The dark isn’t just pain

I see the sane
When I saw the chain
I tear the deep
When I drop the waves

The colours I blend
The Universe I paint
The eyes then glare
The divine through pen

I expand upon
an inner sense
of personal justice
social soul well meant

I know I know
the ability for
personal growth

is well rooted deep within,
for every passing second
my efforts are tirelessly sown,

my chest expands
my heart, it flows
rich with breath, mighty effort
stallion-like strength –
continuous insistence,
and sound temperament.

our steps in time
pirouetting groundwork
yours and mine

our knowledge together
brought closely in life
we stare down the precipice
and soar, divine,

unknowingly yet aware
we become entwined
intent and more
this World we explore

for reaching our Universe’s heights
sights and sounds
enriching our abilities
our minds implore.

Violin track & artwork by Lauren and video & sound editing by myself.

My Poetry (reblogged – an updated version)

If the things were only up to me
And my vault were stashed with greenery
I would exit the world of perfect geometry
To enter the universe with heart fueled poetry

I’m in love with scribbling the meaningful schemes
It’s my way of expressing how I truly feel
The lyrics synchronize with frequency of my heartbeat
The percussion & vibration of the immaculate beast

Now let me stitch the pieces a bit differently
Just stay for a while, hear another thing from me
I share my stories with the same original intensity
You see, this is my healing process & my own therapy

I know it’s kinda provocative the way I project my themes
It doesn’t matter what you think of it & what you think of me
It’s not gloomy to throw light on the darker scenes
You see, the darkness is so light can be

My rhymes are self-realization & experiences with deeper meaning
It’s my way to explore the burning fire & the formless being
This is how I see the things now & this all was meant to be
My poetry is the flow in me & it’s the soul I simply set free

Announcement – Lightning Rhymes is Out Now

It’s time!
Was the inner calling in the month of July
So I started working on my book mindfully, a pure delight
Grace guided me to follow this flowic dream of mine

I’m proud & honoured to present to you – Lightning Rhymes
It’s my poetry collection, a part of me & my life
Lightning has a deeper meaning than how it’s normally described
Self-realization, raw emotions & other experiences I share & rhyme

The publication date of this book is my conscious choice
Your blessings on me is purely the beautiful & starry shine
I hope you’ll read Lightning Rhymes & will truly enjoy
My gratitude to you to be with me all this time 🙏🤍✨

Lightning Rhymes Book Cover

Dear all,

I’m excited to share that my poetry collection is out now. A dream I had once, is now a reality.

Self-realization, experiences, raw emotions & some other dimensions is what I’m sharing with you through my poetic creations.

Lightning Rhymes is the title of my poetry collection. This name simply came to me & it felt right instantly. In September 2020, I had written a poem with the same title. But I never thought that one day it would be the name of my book. I strongly believe, there’s always a reason why things happen. The book cover designed by myself is purely intuitive.

I loved each & every moment of this journey – from working on the manuscript to designing the cover to registering the ISBN number to uploading the electronic files & to finally getting them approved. And now here I am, with my debut book. Believe me, it’s such a great feeling that I can’t express in words. I hope you’d enjoy my poetry collection. Much love 🙏🤍✨

The Switch

I snapped at my kid, so I wrote down The Switch

I switched the click
Of old memories
I snapped again at him
Blood is the heat
Heart breaks in pieces
I bricked the peace
I hear the screams
Oh again, it’s just me

Everything resets to nil
I’m walking furiously
Throwing a fit
Chasing like wind
Scaring the beings
He’s running in tears
Disappearing with speed
Emptying the fills

I’m burning the stills
But I can’t simply sit
So I re-engage to spit
The trigger is me
Fire on delicate leaves
But then I switch to leave
So others can peacefully live
I dim down the chills

No covers & no sheets
I don’t want to exist
I would rather exit
When I become the beast
I feel sick in this scene
So I put me to sleep
I seek rest in peace
My name is fear

My Raw Interior

You & I can’t be defined even if we try just like this Universe
The third eye that shines the divine is the energy purely magical
The signs we sight in this life are the intuitions supernatural
The scars that I wire in my I is to revive the deeper connections
The rhymes that I write in line are the lightning of my raw interior
