Giant Mountains can be moved by the
sheer hands of a lone Hercules ,
Mighty rivers can change their course
of centuries out of just one prophecy
Tallest Amazonian tree can be uprooted by
hammer blows of tempests of the north
Yet my fellow folks there is one thing
harder than the all, for everything under
the Draculean Sun has been smeared
on the dark gaunt raccoon eyes from the
holiest waters of mighty Ganges,
Zinger herb from the fertile
plateaus of Zanzibar, medicinal secrets
from the ancient deltas of River Nile…
Eaten forbidden apples from the gardens
of Eden to have crimson blood flowing
on purplish patches, had pulp of heavenly
Swiss cherries , took elaborate
baths in the silky waters of wines
from the fine regions of Normandy,
had stinky soap carved specially out
humble Mediterranean donkeys milk
enough to conceal of late nights voyeurs,
even had the kilos of harrowing cheese
made out of one Arabian camel’s milk
but to no avail, all in vain…
My fair ladies and gentleman for when
a young woman in thirties suffers from the
intense pangs of Dark-Circles it’s hard
to cure, smooth virgin skins can not hold,
and the blue veins under eyes just
( This is my true story, tragic and painful as it sounds)

Beautifully written. I hope you are getting the dark circles from the sleepless night and I so hope as your kid grows you those shadows will vanish. Stay charming
Thanks Shatanu, all in humor my friend. Yes sleepless nights did cause some shadows!
I am glad. And it is a relief 😊🌸
Ha ha few blemishes add on to beauty just like few heart-breaks add on to love!
How beautiful. Even your comments are as gorgeous as you
Thanks a lot for your praise, I’m flattered!
My pleasure always
Everything can be turned into a poetic expression, when you can look beyond the surface! Well done!
Thanks Warren, you are absolutely spot on once you can look beyond anything can inspire you to pen a verse. I don’t always like to talk about my pain or suffering, I enjoy humor and wit!
You’re welcome! I hear you, I can share the pain and suffering; but rather talk about the love, sprinkled with my humour and wit! Have a wonderful weekend!
Great words…almost the tour of the world.
Thanks for a kind read I am glad you liked it! Regards
Dark circles I hate them
Me too, and I am having them and I need to do something!
Do something before they start liking the place they are residing and claim a permanent kingdom over there.
I know I should something..
captivating piece you got right here
Am also a writer and i’d really appreciate it if you checked out my blog

Only a poet like you can write about pain with so much beauty and fervor.and I loved the title which portrays the underlying emotion.
Thanks a lot Megha coming from you it means a lot, I am truly humbled. Sure women across the world know how to turn pain into beauty, that’s what we all do most of the times❤️
My pleasure Tanya. We women,are indeed the epitome of turning the pain into beauty and giving birth is an apt example of that.
I love the imagery. Beautifully penned!

You’re welcome, Tanya! ❤️
Thanks for your kindness dear!
You’re welcome! ❤️
A universe of women understand!!! Thank you for taking a bit of humor to combat the hateful shadows. 😉
Thanks for reading dear, I’m having some shadows under my eyes , may be part of aging. I try to hide with my glasses and all kind of concealers and always looking out for creams to smooth them!
I clicked “like” but only if you know that means I’m not liking dark circles — who wants that? — but your words. They’re dark-circle-free 🙂
