Oh Mother In LawĀ 

Letter to my boyfriend mother
My dearest mother in law

On Mothers Day 

Every one wished me a Happy Mothers Day 

And I thought of you

How much you have done to hurt me 
I’ve shed one too many tears

In hopes of one day holding my very own child dear to my heart 

But you 

You have snatched that joy inside of me 

Before I can give my child the opportunity to see the world with its own naked eyes

You have destroyed my peace

You took my smiles and turned them into frowns 

You made me sad 
When you came here I treated you as a Queen

Attended to your needs with whatever you desired 

Gave our bed for you to rest on

Allowed you to take full control over my home

And now 

Today of all days 

I have regrets 

It is because of you 
I hope when you’re reading this letter your heart doesn’t burn 

Your body doesn’t freeze

You soul doesn’t ache 

But if it does 

Then so be it 

I just pray you know how to deal with it if and when that time comes
You have birthed your son

Today he is a part of my life

I asked humbly for your blessings as he did too

Today he is willing to forgive you 

When I have forgiven you years ago
Not once have I destroyed you with words 

But the names you have called me is words I’ve never even heard
You were like a mother to me in my eyes

And in yours I was a disgrace to become your sons wife

I would have protected you the best I could 

Given you my home and let you live

Worked my bones to its very end 

And pray that God keeps you safe from anything 
As a child I was taught to respect those who are eldest 

I was told to be humble no matter how much and how hard it gets

I did my very best 

Today of all days I held close to my heart 

The regrets of being so humble 

Because of you 

My universe is of nonexistent 

Because of you I gave up on love 

Because of you I have pains today 

And now because of you 

Your very own son has stayed away from you 
Not once have I made him choose 

He knew in his heart you have done nothing for us than abuse me with hurtful words 

He knew you sent people to have me beaten up 

He knew our lives was at peace until you came here and destroyed it
What mother leaves her son all alone In a different yet difficult world because of her own selfishness? 

What mother snatches a child from another woman’s womb? 

What mother wishes her children bad? 

I can’t seem to understand why do you think you have it all figured out 

When even that same son aches for the love from his mother 

How do I stomach the pain that you have taken away from me 

When you yourself is in pain because your son has denied you today? 
I wonder now 

How do you feel to destroy me and in the process you destroyed yourself? 
I’ve done great deeds more than you can imagine

I’ve sheltered those who had no home

I’ve cared for those who had no one

I’ve loved for those who has been abandoned 

I’ve been a mother, a friend, a sister and a loyal woman to your son 

I’ve respected you when you degraded me

I’ve loved and cared for your son 

I’ve done the best I could
Today  

I’ve done enough

I pray that today 

My last words to you shall embed itself into your soul making you restless forever until you crawl on your knees and beg for my forgiveness 
The next time you dare to step in my path

Thunder will roll

Lightning will strike you 

For I am more loved than you can ever imagine

I am a child of God

Who deserve to be happy

Who deserves to be respected 

Who deserves love like everyone else in this world

God is my witness 

I have not once disrespected you 

I’ve had 

Many opportunities to send you to jail

But I kept shut

Today I will no longer be a victim to you or anyone

I’m stronger and more powerful 

Because God has mended my broken heart

My child is with the angels rejoicing 

That he or she is proud to once be a part of me
The next time you dare attack me with your words or your physical being

I hope 

For every thing you have done to me

I pray it comes back to you twice or ten times more

Seven years is long enough

Now I am putting my foot down 

I pray that God be with you through those times 

And I pray you accept him and he 

shines some light into your dark heart!

Because if you don’t

Then you haven’t yet felt real PAIN 
I WILL REMAIN HUMBLE KNOWING MY GOD HAS MY FEET GUIDING ME THROUGH TRIALS AFTER TRIALS LIGHTING UP MY PATH 

With his blessings 

As his child I gain each day the knowledge of those who are arrogant and of those who are ignorant

Walls closing inĀ 

You see the light fading.

Water swallows you as you swallowed her.

You die slowly.

You rot for eternity.

Breathing heavy you die and die and die.

You lose yourself. You lose and cry.

Fading away. Walls all around you.

You die and die and die.

Darkness consumes you.

Soulmates

repost)  

Two minds shared in equal balance.

Two hearts yielding love.

Two lives lived in different ways.

Two souls entwined as one.

There’s no mistake when you find this mate,

You’ll know it from the start,

The feeling is an awesome one,

The best one in your heart. 

Adore MeĀ 


As we gaze into each others eyes
We feel the mystical energy
A powerful beam of light
Penetrates ever so radiantly
Vibrates deep into our hearts
Sending electrical charges
Beckoning our love for each other
Each silhouetted face glows 
Refracting brilliant charges
That is mutually exclusive
And expressed in a satin heaven
As we reach the plateau
Of our love, we bond in a cocoon 
Hearts beating as one, lub dub
Happiness shows for our love 
We pledge to respect always
Cherish and romance as well
And always to share kind words
In every waking moment of ours
With each breath we take
And at the crossroads we encounter
We stay true to our path
Together we breathe and walk 

I wonder too…

I wonder how you’d feel if walking my shoes right now.Would you be in pain, showing it through your face? 

Or would you smile and just endure it 

Like nothing happened in the first place?

I wonder if I paid you no attention 

Would you pretend that you’re okay 

Or would you lash out like a child taken to a candy store and couldn’t even get one thing?

Sometimes I wonder
I wonder if you dare

To creep your feet into my shoes

Putting no emotions on a table 

Because you’re that bold and able 
I wonder if Jesus came to earth 

What is the first thing that you would do? 

Would you prepare a feast and clean the house or would you stand at that door with water to wash his feet?
I wonder if you’ve ever cried yourself to sleep or do you smile knowing because of you someone else’s is crying under their sheets? 
I wonder if you’re gonna weep the same way I’ve once weep or would you laugh in slyness for being proud of being a creep? 

It’s amazing how life takes sudden twists and turnsWhen family becomes enemies and friends become foes

I wonder when one dies what becomes afterwards to their soul

Does anyone wonder too? 

Love Knocks 3 xĀ 

 
‘I …….L O V E…….Y O U’
As you knocked on the keyboard

3 simple words with not much thought

Your desire across the board

My love you constantly sought
In the web of love, I was caught

By a total stranger with a magical rod

Mesmerised in delusion, put me in a spot

Hopes a float, what I might and what I ought
Is this just a fantasy or simply a plot

A fiction of my imagination, luck of a slingshot

Targetted my heart, hit me on the spot

Strucked my wounded soul with a lightning bolt
Black words typed on white screen board

Loves declaration upon parchment canvas distort

Endless pursue, throngs of words you fought

Capturing my love with hopes I would never abort

Everlasting Love StoryĀ 

The heavens call out to us with truth of love everlastingPromises never made, yet kept within the deep

The depths of our souls unite in the midnight

As we melt in a world that has not joined our names

Washed upon the shore with the waves of regret

We wish and we hope for a union

A union we pray…

For a day, a night when the stars might shine upon our story

As in each other’s arms we are safe and at home

At home, listen to my heart

For it is my heart that beats your name

It beats your name loud in the winds that call you home

Home is where the heart resides and you reside within me

And neath the diamonds sparkling, we laugh, we cry, and we believe

In love, a love that shares in our legend of passionate streams

Where hand in hand we walk with new hearts

Hearts that have forgotten they were ever broken

Broken no more for together they have found peace and comfort in the everlasting truth that our souls knew all along

Cruel LoveĀ 

Cruel love
Alas, cruel love, away with you! 

Attempts at you are but in vain! 

You tempt and mock at evā€™ry turn 

And always leave my heart in pain. 
My thoughts of you must not be real, 

A fantasy to neā€™er be found. 

If this be true, then set me free 

That my deep sorrows may be drowned. 
Away with your false promises 

Of undying, deep devotion 

And forever love, if such exists, 

Iā€™m done with this emotion! 
For thereā€™s no hope for such a fool 

Whose pleas remain unrequited 

For life has left my broken heart 

Scarred and forever blighted.

Vision of SerenityĀ

And find that paradise inside of you

A vision of reminderĀ 

Just a vision to remind you that you come first at heart and soulEveryone and everything will fit into place when you open up your mind to the world I see 

No matter what pain you may face 

Joy follows afterwards

Like the rain and the puddles 

Comes rainbows and sunshine 
It’s called a world filled of life and beauty

Exotic creatures 

Unexpected situations 

Vivid memories

Fainted tears

Unimaginable pain

Unforgettable love

Strength with hurt

Life with laughs 

Time for work and time for play 

Reason behind death

Blessings of birth

Life journey takes it courseĀ 

When life’s journey has taken a new course  

You’re speechless because of the intimacy 

You’re deaf to the words of warning 

You’re blind to see the pain which lies ahead
And now 
You sit wondering 

Quietly to yourself 

How could this be? 
When the love in which was so strong has now become weak
I wonder 

“Is he truly in love with me?”
I shiver with the harsh tone of his voice near me 

I sometimes wonder is he out there cheating on 

me 

I cry my self to sleep many nights 

Afraid of waking up to the room being empty 
Without his love I wobble 

And with his love I shine through even in the darkness of life 
I know not what tomorrow may bring 

But my love 

I promise to remain the same 

For you I wish the world to bow before

I pray an eternity of happiness is all that you should ever endure 

I lift you upon my fantasy pedestal 

Proud that in my heart not only your name is written 

But it is also embedded into my soul 
I love you 

Let your name leave a legacyĀ 

Life is such a growing process 
We live, we learn, we accept, we change, we chance, we give, we demand, we work, we play, we cry, we smile…

But through it all 

Our minds are developing into something stronger 
Life is challenging 

Just take it as it come 

Don’t let fear or rejection, stop you from embracing life 
Get out there and touch the sun if you dare

Reach out and hold the stars if you think it’s possible 

Do you because no one will do for you 

Embrace your life and let your name leave a legacy! 

Where we stand I will never know

Where we stand I will never know
Where we stand I will never know, because your emotions you can never show. 

Today you love me 

Tomorrow you don’t
One moment you care the next you say you won’t 

I can’t seem to understand the fine lines between us anymore 

The simplicity between a conversation 

No longer exist
You turn your back on me in the bed which we share

I know not what I do many nights 

For me to constantly feel as I am walking on egg shells
Afraid I am to speak my mind

Because if you don’t run away for the entire night

You’re lips are on constant rewind
Memories of the past I wish can remain there

Yet you seem to always have a reason to bring it back to me when things seem a bit of uncertainty 
I’ve waited for six long years

For you to always say your parents were right

Then answer me this one simple question

Why is it you still seem to crawl back into the same bed we share at night? 
Where we stand I will never know

I am the last thing on your agenda even a simple promise you can’t afford
I sometimes sit and wonder

Where is it that I am heading 

I live with a man who thinks I am worth absolutely nothing

Faded PetalsĀ 

FADED PETALS  

 
Strewn upon the cobbled

path lay dried and faded rose 

petals, where tear drops had 

left their mark, but now were 

invisible in the dark, but they

still left their mark
The dark red roses had

arrived, the day after he had 

said goodbye, and she cried 

and cried but kept them till 

they lost their colour and died

 

Knowing the ocean wind 

would soon carry them 

away, perhaps then she

could start again in some 

way, but how could she 

without the one she 

had depended upon as

her friend, soulmate and 

had loved so deep.

 

This mountain she now 

faced was cold and steep.

One rose petal she crushed

and placed into a locket

he had given to her as 

a gift, and she would wear

it always, he would be 

with her on this climb and

when she needed help, he

would give her a lift.

After you’re gone…

After You’re Gone  

A midst the quiet of the evening,

I still sense you are near.

The memories flood my consciousness

As I wipe away my tears.

I long to hold you close, 

to feel the warmth of your skin.

But my mind tells my heart,

Iā€™ll not see you again.

Faded pictures, greeting cards, 

and songs on the radio,

are all that remain

of the love we once knew.

Your ways, though quiet,

were oh so strong 

that I think you are here

even after youā€™re gone.

Loves Holding

LOVEā€™S HOLDING.
Is love, in aberration confusing

That it steals from a mindā€™s daily routine

And is more to blind emotionā€™s choosing

So only what colours the heart is seen

How might a mind full in love concentrate

On daily functions, deliberations

And how would a heart, so held, operate

Its passion losing mindā€™s information

Sooner would I a mind to conjecture

That all thought is constructive in effect

Yet, to loveā€™s hold, is my mind in stricture

And I am lost to all clear thoughtā€™s select

Should I think on love with an affection

Then is love not to a heartā€™s connection

~ Love Intrigues Me ~
I celebrate the emotions of this life,

feel the prelude of passion and its sensation …

It holds my fragile being in total submission,

but the hunger for love … intrigues me

Calm after the stormĀ 

Storms of life come, storms of life dissipate.Thunder sounds loud, lightning will equate.

Outburst in some relations, anger will annihilate.

Remove yourself from this situation.

Move to a more understanding relation..

Storms do not last in a loving relation.

Deadly AttractionĀ 

Deadly Attraction  

I remember you loving me like you never did before

Before that dreaded moment of you walking through that door

Door to my heart I opened and the walls you penetrated

Penetrated by what I thought to be love, only to be degraded

Degraded to the lowest of lows, taken from the highest of highs

Highs accompanied by mundane mornings and never-ending numbing nights

Nights and days passed, were gone forever, ones that made me superior

Superior to those who were not in love, those who are inferior

Inferior to the feelings I had and still have for you

You, the love of my life, the one I see in my future too

Too soon, it was for me to fall in love so quick

Quick to say the three words and then it was time to quit

Quit fooling myself, quit thinking about these deadly feelings

Feelings of inadequacy and unworthiness to my heart they cling

Cling triumphantly, tugging and squeezing, leaving me so very lonely

Lonely with my miserable thoughts, exposing my vulnerability

Vulnerability because you were with me but your mind was not there

There you were in your mind, body and soul, but I wanted you here

Here, I was trying to believe just how much you love me

Me, the one you pursued and told people we were meant to be

Be my best friend, my passionate lover and my dutiful wife

Wife of mine, the one who I have decided should share my life

Life so promising in those wonderful words uttered from your lips

Lips of temptation and words of deceit issued from movie scripts

Scripts through which you seemingly poured out your heart and soul

Soul of innocence and truth replaced by a dark, empty and gaping hole

Hole so enormously fed by lust, greed and insecurities

Insecurities which fed on the love I once thought was to be

Be my knight, save me from myself and save me from you 

You, who despite warnings from friends, may need saving too

Too long we have pretended to be the perfect couple

Couple of idiots, now we have to sift through this rubble

Rubble that resulted from the crumbling walls of our love

Love with a flame that burned brightly as a message from above

Above all others, fighting against all odds, it turned quickly into murderous hate

Hate for me, growing hate for you, is the masterpiece I intend to create

Create a canvas just for you, with loads of malice and serious contempt

Contempt that will continues to build towards suicidal attempts

Attempts fueled by murderous intentions only awaiting the plan

Plan of your death and mine which must be an event so grand

Grand affair that must be done with due care and attention

So perfectly, artistically mastered that definitely must be mentioned

Mentioned daily, monthly and yearly in the local news

News of the kill of a lifetime that should be awarded 5-star reviews

Reviews of its gruesome, gory, grief-inducing details

Details will be told of these crazy, cryptic, critical tales 

Tales that would make blood drip instead of sweat from your brow

Brow-beating tale, how it ends? No one but God knows and understands how

TransitioningĀ 

Transitioning 
I know what you’re going through

I know because I’ve been there too
I know what it feels like to lay in a bed only to turn in the middle of the night realizing that the reason you awoke 

It is because of the tears which rolled out of your eyes

Against your cheeks 

And down to your chin

Hitting you right on the chest 

Awakening

Feeling so drenched 
Drenched in pain 

Which no one knows

Yet humble you remain

Falling back to sleep

Dreaming of that nightmare all over again
The sounds of the CO’s 

Banging on your door

It’s time for them to enter And play their roll 

Shaking the unit down 

As we are stripped and search
Stripped from your dignity and pride

No one treats us as humans 

For our stories are never really heard

Because you see 

The system is there to commit you to jail

Guilty until proven innocent is their main aim
Aiming to reach the stars

I wished so many nights

I kept telling myself that everything will be alright 
I will remain a tamed lion for a few more years until the jury and judge awaits to hear my pain as the trial I await seems longer than the usual time frame 
Framed of a crime I’ve never committed 

I sit in silence as I begin to listen

There were so many more 

Just like me

Striving for another opportunity 
Opportunity to do things right and show the judge that I am not that monster who he said I am, refraining from those who were the reason I’ve just become another statistic to the system 
A system in which people truly know nothing of

Unless of course they’ve been inside just like us. 
Us women you see 

Have been granted such a miraculous opportunity 

Some may feel deprived of society 

Others may feel unworthy 

Some bitter

Some free
Free spiritually 

That I am 

I had no choice 

It was the only book I was allowed to read

I found inner strength 

To conquer through the battles and the grief 

To motivate and accept what has been written will be

I’ve learned to love me 

Finding inner peace with my heart for allowing others to control what I gave with ease

I found beauty inside those walls

The sounds of the metal doors clinging as the CO’s scream out for me by my last name

Sometimes I am a number which forever remains

Like a social security card 

Where it follows you for life

I found joy to hear my name being called 

I brought 

Myself to stronger courage 

Releasing my pain 

While transitioning into something greater 

For us all 

By Devi Ramsaran 

Love confusionĀ 

      As time permits and pleasure demands I sit at my most tranquil moment to type these few lines letting you know that I love you.

 

We were born by ourselves…We will Die by ourselves…But as we Live…being alone without a companion is not in Gods design…Isolation can be good for a time…But it also a form of cruel punishment…Reach out and hug someone close to you…Tell Them you love them…

For as often as I can I will continue to say that I love you…

If a strong emotion suddenly lights all the candles we carry inside ourselves, 

It creates an explosion or brightness that shines far beyond our normal vision and then a splendid tunnel appears,

That shows us the way that we forget when we were born and calls us, 

To recover our lost divine origin…

The soul longs to return to the place it came from, 

… Leaving the body lifeless…

And ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation 

that you are my oxygen that ignites this fire within me…

I hope that this never be you but always be me and one day our love will blossom and together we will be on the same page.

Unconditional love, hard to find as equality among races

My love, everlasting, forever, understanding and compromising

His love, sudden as a light but strong as the darkness 

But as sudden as it can be turned on, sudden it can turn off. 

Keeping love, strategy is the key 

… My love, is powerful no matter what, devours the obstacles rain or shine

His love, quickly distracted by newness and temptation of the unknown 

Our Love, our mutual agreement 

My love says BE MINE FOREVER, donā€™t change inside 

His love says WHILE YOUā€™RE MINE, donā€™t change outside

When time fools you into a false sense of security

My love says, we have history baby, dedication and commitment

His love says, I donā€™t feel the same anymore, we donā€™t have passion

But passion lost was interest lost only to further distanceā€¦.

Letā€™s try again? We deserve a second chance

My love, excited, refreshed, hopeful; better to try and fail than fail to try

His love, unable to put the best foot forward, canā€™t wait till the motions are over

Unconditional love, hard to find as equality among races.

My love and his love stuck on the same chapter but never on the same page…

What is Love?Ā 

What is Love ?  
Love is when two souls connect as one 

When two heartbeats with the same rhythm 

Love is as pure as the natural sunlight 

Emanating through the pupils of our eyes

Love is 

To conquer the universe with your impressive mind 

Love is to reveal the hidden treasures of yesterday bringing fourth life to today

And the expectancy of tomorrow 

Love is when your soul is in search of the other half when your significant other is not around

Love is connecting through 

Hearts, soul, & touch 
Love is better felt than perceived

Rain & Roses

Rain & Roses
Petals tremble in soft misty hues

and the rain falls like tears on the roses 

once blooming

in every line 

of every sweet love poem

that chased my dreams and flowed from my pen

now etched upon my heart

ā€¦still missing you

and lingering

like tears on the roses

By Devi Ramsaran

Ecstasy

Ecstasy  

Your breath became a sweetness,

through every moment a breeze of ecstasy.
Wafting across my cheek, anointing anxious lips,

excruciatingly long moments waltzing in three-quarter time,

your arms seemed eons away, mine unable to reach you

across a blue-haze horizon and yet that breath,

that wondrous delight hinting of sweet clover

and fields of lavender remains forever, 

embedded in my memory.
