Even the wisest and bravest of us tend to get drawn towards the softer side of love. Many great men and women before us have written and told us through their lives, that life goes on and the living carries on with it. No matter how huge the burden of hopelessness and disappointment strikes us, we get back up in a while with our head held high and with that our hopes as huge as the sky. This is not just applicable to our tender hearts that get hurt from time to time, but you can relate it with the…
They ask what is so beautiful about you and I wonder if I really have an answer to it.
As I look at the lone koel
Sitting on top of the branch and looking as black as the night,
The mango tree seems to swing in the direction of the wind
But she remains in that stillness yet more beautifully.
The monsoon has come bearing many gifts
The blooming of the half burnt trees, the incessant croaking of the frogs,
But the most special thing it has brought is
How it reminds me of your smile and makes me miss…
Beautiful lines run through their bodies
All complementing one another,
It’s an observation and not a fact
As it takes only a perception to accept any defeat.
I do not care about what the world has to offer
Even though it manipulates and struggles with all its lies,
To justify a glory that is hard to reach
Since these stubborn crooked are never contended with just enough of anything.
For once I want to feel
Without being subjugated to your market policies,
Because I do not find myself always in the black or the white
But in the lines that colour my…
I think my generation has had their time for being reckless and having fun with no care for what the world would make a perception about them and that’s a reality check we got sooner than we had expected. The best days of our lives are the ones spent not worrying. I cannot stress more on this since as far I can remember, people used to simply go on about their days discussing how to proxy for classes or how to get their crush to like them. But it all stopped when we had to suit up in formals and…
It’s Saturday and I went to the park,
Took long walks along the side of the pavement
That does not get much busy,
Yet you have to maintain a pace so as to overcome the slow walkers.
It’s a nice evening with a clear sky,
The road is busy and unknown to me since I am only a visitor here,
Even when a part of my family stays across two streets
And I have a place to call home.
It’s a good feeling to be out and about,
To be invited and included in a new conversation,
You learn so…
Hello Readers. I hope my post finds you well. Some person who regularly reads my posts has expressed their disappointment in me because I was not helpful to them in a certain way they had expected me to be. Previously I thought it is a waste of my time to engage and give explanation to someone I know nothing about, precisely because of which I refrained from calling out that person. But as you know I speak my mind when I have to and there are no rules that can convince me from doing otherwise. I want to make it…
Don’t bury your feelings or yourself so deeply inside a box
That you push someone to their edge
And they give up.
Not only because they are tired of pushing their way through someone
Who intentionally remains emotionally unavailable,
But also because it’s rude and cruel
To step up the tasks just to satisfy your ego
To see how far they will go to fight for you.
Playing mind games is so out dated,
Not to mention its insanely toxic.
It’s not admirable to be scared and feel incapable of owning your feelings,
Simply because you are afraid it might…
Hello Readers. I hope my post finds you well. And if it does not, then I hope it gets better for you sooner than you can imagine.
Sitting at home with nothing much to do and with no job to get you worried and all worked up to complete a task makes you feel detached from the rest of the people around. I remember the last time I felt the thrill of chase was when I had to complete our final year project to be eligible for a bachelor’s degree in engineering. The frustration of not reaching up to the…
Hello Readers. I hope the summers are not too taxing on you.
I am a very weird combination of both my parents. I have got the calmness genes from one and a set of short tempered genes from another which has not been a very successful amalgamation according to me or do you think it has been? It is very confusing for people to judge me because at times I am patient and at other times it would be in someone’s benefit to maintain a fair distance from me because I am afraid they could not bear the wrath of…
