Three Poems by Akanksha Agarwal


The dragon in our lives

You are the most haunted animal
That has enveloped our lives
like a blanket of enemy around our body.

We humans, hijacked by this foe
Are at war with this Contagion-

We need to wear the shield of happiness and love
To fight this arrogant, non degradable creature

That is destroying the bond of humans with nature
The scariest movie in real and dream.

When you glance in the eye of a doctor
Your image blurs
The sailors of life
The god of humans.

Join our hands together
Fight this invisible human
And let your home be your best friend !


The Spider and The Cobweb on the ceiling, the man in her life,
Staring at the insect, for her survival,

Her eyes couldn’t blink watching her new friend,
Her day would pass murmuring to the insect,

Love like Termite was feeding her Heart,
She was smiling with sparkling eyelids after long,

Like a band of colours portraying different emotion,
She was becoming frail and weak,

She cried out, to pronounce her anguish,
Her lips from ages were summoned to pin drop silence,

He was the last resort for this quadriplegic frame,
His hissing sound, was the most soothing lyric, to die in peace !



She, the personification of a lioness

Ferocious and sharp edged for her duties,

Her hands in gloves and blood have been my soother,
The most courageous metal,

Her Robotic brain, unwavering her performance,
Patients comfort, drives high spirits and pleasure in veins,

Her work place, the Temple of the house,
The seat she cherishes the most,

The most Fearless women on the globe,
With clock running not faster than her fingers,

The sunset just an indication,
Bones declining as inchmeal,

My tears like every drop of her love ,
showering her blessings on my cheeks,

Her hairy, rough and itchy forehands,
The glass of impressions, hard work, sincerity and devotion!

Such journeys are endless and selfless ,
Like fire in the forest, igniting like a Goddess!

Akanksha Agarwal is a multifaceted artist -- a poet, dancer, singer, painter, musician and a home- maker par excellence. She gleefully embraces the diverse experiences and perspectives of life and pours it out in her creative pursuits.They spread an aura of happiness and love.


It was her friend and mentor, her father, who glimpsed the spark in her versatile abilities and gave her a ‘Pen’. He encouraged her to express herself with abandon. From a very young age she felt completely uninhibited in giving shapes and forms to these expressions. 


Her writings and sketches depict a feisty sense of longing and belonging,and she comes across as a person who reminds you of the sunny, winter afternoons --nippy and warm at the same moment. 


Winning accolades in competitions and impromptu challenges, she wore her achievements lightly. A rising star on the Instagram platform, she recently organized a live session of poets around the globe with aplomb. 


Akanksha writes from her heart, dreams with her heart, and being a people’s person, lives with her heart. 


The Secret in My Blood, her first book of poems, is a beautiful work focusing on love and romance. Her deep and untainted feelings, come through in each rendition with her inimitable play of words.
