The Edge

The Edge- Nikita Sara

The edge...
like a seductress, tempting me to her arms
like a poet, willing me to hear anther verse
like a magician, hypnotizing me under her spell
like a river, enchanting and endearing

I walk closer
the glimmering waters beckon
tempted by the sheer inviting drop
my eyes riveted by the reluctant dewdrops
that glisten on the leaves before they melt away
at  the hint of the first ray of sun
and kiss the tender tendrils on the ground
where the buds open up magically
at the first strain of the new song
the melody and harmony
of the birds waking up to herald the new day
the insects making their way
to their business of the day

...suddenly breaking me out
of my reverie
reminding me that
I should head back
to the bivouac of life
and I will have another day
to feel the magic at the edge
to be tempted by its delusive illusions
to move on and be up and doing
still achieving, still pursuing...


Wildchild- Nikita Sara

a girl, a child woman
like a flower in the wild
on the treacherous mountain top
on the edge of a hill
on the river bend
standing bright after a storm
all else withered but the wild flower standing tall
with a promise of a brilliant bloom after the rain
to bring joy to a broken heart
to stand out in brilliance at the break of dawn
to radiate hope at the first ray of sun
to be trampled once again
and yet flower again
bringing back colour to the enchanted wilderness


Reflection- Nikita Sara

I like what i see
My reflection whispers to me
I smile a silent smile
It’s taken me a while
To move away from the shadows
To erase the blows
To find a place I belong
To find a place I want to rest

I quickly steal a look
without fear or anxiousness
at the brilliant reflection that smiles back at me
at the reckless soul
the free spirit that has nestled
with the spirit
that has dared
to bare itself and make space for it forever!

One Day

One Day- Nikita Sara

One day if you let me
I will take you to the skies
Seat you on the stars
And as we make our way through the milky way
I will pick up all your dreams
And weave them with the stars
And spin it all around you

I know you don’t see yourself
The way I do
The questions and thoughts
 that plague you day in and day out
but, with you on my mind all the time
those thoughts are things I cannot go a day without!

One day
When you let me, I shall build an observatory
Just to show you
That throughout all constellation
All the stars will never
Shine as bright as you!

Chasing fireflies

Fireflies- Nikita Sara

Been chasing fireflies......

Wrapped in a rainbow
Living a dream
Burying sensibilities
Leaving reality behind,
plummeting into a world so divine!

A jolt, 
a thunderbolt
As I lounged around on the silver lined clouds
Rudely woken in a world I didn't belong

Picking up the mask 
thrown once behind
Reluctantly, coldly, putting the dreams away
Back into the arena to battle with the mighty
A life lost, dreams lost but hope still remain alive

....Reborn, once again to chase the fireflies!
