Big Fat Post Below :)

Shadowed Verses 

She slips out of her blankets
Hearing them whimper asleep
Her shadows cross dark corridors
Door to door, she creeps.

She’s unstoppable now,
All her heart now desires
To write under the candle light
Her passion high on fire.

She runs through her words
Draws stories in her head
They sleep in peace knowing
Naima has not gone ahead.

She cares of no one now
She leaves her qualms behind
Naima Ali, the upcoming writer
Is the picture she has in mind.

She remembers how they would torture her
Strangle her passion to death
She remembers the pain, the fear, the sweat
The obstacles, the walls they would set.

The pain she feels, the anger in her
She puts into her lines
Like a burning hearth that ignites the soul
Her words shout out her cries.

This is the Naima she dreams of
This is the Naima she strives to be
Through verses of love, she’ll topple weak walls
Which veiled her face, from the world to see.

Yesterday I had this "huge" emotional upsurge; very weird I tell you. Makes you go waaaaaaaaaa....but then brings out the poet in me which is a plus point. Made me write 2 poems and I'm pretty happy with how they turned out to be :P Ok I'm done with my haughtiness, so Enjoy and show some love through your comments :P

And I had NO idea Naima means tranquil. I had heard the name before and instantly loved it. Hence Naima Ali :)

Anddddd We play holi tomorrow. So Im superr duperrr excited. And Ujaan is in town and Koko is here too which makes things awesome. 

And I have PICS to share...Sam B meets her canon presents u these -
