Love, it's been awhile since the last time I saw you face to face. Your mere existence brought relief to me. Your smile gives light to my darkest day. Your eyes of brown calms my erratic heart. And your words of kindness delivers me to happiness.

But, now that your not here by my side tell me how will I live without taking a glimpse of your smile. Tell me how to breathe knowing you're not here to see it. Tell me how life will be without you. And please tell me how to move on?

I know I sound pathetic right now. It has been 4 years and 3 days since you let go of me. I know I should have moved on by now but knowing that you're the first person who made me realize how terrible I am to over...

There I lay,  desperately happy
Rolling in the white snow of the sheets
Covering every inch of my porcelain
that you put your mouth on
This is what love feels like
Electricity runs down my spine 
And flowers bloom on that very spot 
Between my breasts 
Where you rested  your head 
The warmth of your breath and the soft caress
Of your lips
Still makes my body blush 
And the words you whispered still vibrate
Through my ribs and resonate in my racing heart
"I need this, I need you
I need this,  I need you"

When words fail, distances often express the true feelings of conveyor. Partly because we hear only what we feel.

Goodbye Lettrs. Until next time.

Dear sunshine,
                           Where are you busy nowadays. How busy are you..you can't even take out 2hr of your daily life to talk to me.
I told you a number of times to call me but I never got a single call.
I seriously needed to tell you about something good so that the warmth, excitement and some mysterious energy of your presence and your voice just take me to another level of happiness.
I just can't write down what I feel when I share small moments, happiness, misery with you.
When I talk to you my sadness just decreases I feel relief I have nothing to worry about much.
When I m tensed I want to talk to you. You just put me in a totally different mood :)
And I neve...

LOVE FINDS YOU

When you are a dad, blessings come in pairs.

Thanks to the thousands of people on the lettrs network for helping me live a dream as a man, and father, of letters.

Yours in thanks, and hope,

She was like a
small bird in the
Ocean trying
to find delight in
every moment.

Everyday she chuckled
and shined like pearl.

Wondering of
having all
the materialistic
delight,
she went
running before it.

Her chuckling and
shining was long
left behind,
Could never be find..
Could never be find..

                 MEMORIES

I know, I came too far though we are in the same place,
Still there’s a wind of you inside me that never settles,
It rises at particular intervals either through memories or the people,
Though the same wind only make me remember that I should not go nearby you,
That is the only time when this wind turns into earthquake, strikes with all the memories,
Which only either broke us or provided pain at later stage.
I know this wind is stopping us from doing what we want to do,but what I can do is only hope that it’s good for us and this shall also pass,
As they say never get back to the one, who broke you!!!

You are the light
amongst my darkness;
when nothing else
is in arm's length
I reach for you.

Though we aren't
always skin to skin,
your heart is the beat
in my chest.

'Win' and 'lose' are two distinct words imperfectly concocted by humans. Two extremes capable of affecting not only one's disposition, but emotions, thoughts and feelings alike.
Life is a cycle in compliance with the flow of success and failure.
We are triumphant some times and, at others, we learn. We are leading a life where growth and change are in tandem, where each one of us is constantly stumbling upon novel facts, disparate experience, uncertain situations and newfangled ideas every new day.
So how can there be such expressions like 'win' or 'lose' when an individual's ability to assimilate and percieve themes is never-ending and processes, quite untold?

Writing Prompt
WOULD YOU RATHER


1. See into the future or be able to read minds?

A. Definitely read minds. It wouldn't mean I would change the way I would react after getting to know what they think but just curious enough to know what is going inside their heads. Psychology never bores me.

2. Spend the entire day without eating or spend the entire day without using your smart phone?

A. An entire day of no food ? Are you kidding me? Other than the Lenten season for Easter I wouldn't starve myself for any major reason. Food is love ! I can survive without the phone .

3. Trapped in Jurassic Park or compete in the Hunger Games?

A. Definitely the Jurassic park. Fear drives you to...

The glorious heart crying,
To the melodies of pain.
Fire dripping from the soul,
To make you cringe in vain.
Scorching desires within,
Chasing the sins,
Of past present and future.
Lying beneath the untamed fire,
The raging storm all around,
Witnessing the intimacy,
Of the souls crashing against each other.
The big heart will die,
And move to oblivion,
For it has nothing to do,
With the sacred sayings;
That love will last for now,
Or till forever!

He was a serpent.  Filling me with mock trust and morphing me into a lifeless being as soon as I was too far in the enrapturement to escape.
I hate reminding myself of these pains but I know it is my story to tell now to all of those who are finding themselves lifeless in the grasp of a lover who never asked for anything more than a warm body to treat like a cold body in the sheets.

Bottomless seas, the depth of her affection
Lips horizons that can be touched
Sunrises and sunsets
Perch up happily on her eyelids
And rainbows arch around her brows
The scent of happy sun flowers in her hair
And petrichor perfumes her muddy feet
Little bluebirds dance magically on her fingertips
So I color my skin blue
To dance with thee

Another day gone.

The more I think about it, the more I feel like I'm just a riverside carbonate stone and the time is a river, an ever flowing flow which erodes me regularly, until I vanish.

All I can do is make the most of time which I have left, and funny part of that is, I don't even know how much matter is left in me.

One more splash gone.

I don't know what happened
What came up to me
But it was 2 am
And all I could think about, was you
Just you!

I don't know what happened
But I was not pushing away the thoughts
The thoughts that I knew
Could drown me
Because I knew that I would still find some warmth in them

I don't know what happened
That yesterday you were nothing
And today you are everything to me
That my life totally relies on you

I don't know what happened
But just that one time
You kissed my forehead
I lost control of myself
Dizzying all the way, from your arms to my bedroom
When you smiled and waved at me a goodnight

I don't know what happened
But the first time you looked deep into my eyes
My mind became a comple...

Make it easy for me
Let me die in this ecstacy of being a muse
To a poet kissing my wounds 
With adjectives that I would never use
To address myself in a million years
Let me breathe in the metaphors you use
To describe the hope that clothes my naked sins and 
The pain in the mouths of the daisies 
That achingly bloom in my curls tonight
Stop killing me with those
Verses that you write for me everyday
Your love scares me
And even if I try
I can't match the depth of the ocean in your eyes

Hunt me down if you can
I am a prey in waiting
I will look into your eyes
And smile like I always do
I will give in
I will surrender
The whiskey absolves you
Each time I raise an objection

HOLD ON TO YOUR HEART

To The Father I needed, but I didn't have :
  
       You are quite something, a masterpiece to top the list. When I was young, you showed me that some dangers will be very close... Like the danger of abandonment and anger... Confusion and envy. While I was younger, you stood aside while was crying out for attention, accepting negative rather than none at all. Oh how I resented your absence, and your lack of provision.
       When I reached young adulthood, early 20's, I needed you to hug me when relationships ended. I needed your example to set my standards in all and current potential relationships... But you were not there. I needed to be daddy little girl, held safely while I cried and...

HAPPY FATHERS DAY!

He is all the simple things in life.

He is early morning smiles and Saturday cartoons. He is rain pattering on the roof and living room forts. He is hopscotch on a summer day or the smell of fresh cut grass in the spring. He is "party until I can't feel my face" and "cry until you have nothing left inside". He is the "don't forget to tuck me in" and kisses goodnight. He is  whispers of "I love you" and tears of "I promise I will never let go". He is all the simple things in life.  

And all the simple things are in him.
