               Dad, I Remember

You dragged her across the hallway by her pretty hair..
Based on the assumption that she had an affair.
She was kicking and screaming but you didn't care..
What hurt her most was that her child was standing there.
You threatened her not to leave while you took a shower..
But she wasn't going to stay there and cower another hour.
She drove off refusing to be overpowered..
You ran out in your towel chasing her as your demons became louder.
SMASH! Goes your fist thru the neighbor's car window..
You've mistaken the neighbor's vehicle for your wife's blue pinto.
The cops arrive and your son's crying into his pillow..
Sobbing for his mommy as his blood begins to siz...

She gave her hand into his hand and He hold her carefully everytime she stepped into something, ever since the time He promised her to take care of their daughter. Out of confusion, she asked him, papa why the world is so cruel, why can't I go late at night, why people lay their eyes on me. He hold her tightly and said, Sorry, just to keep you safe from them I kept you in a cocoon but from now onwards I'll help you to do whatever you want, because you shouldn't be taught to be afraid but they should be taught how to respect.
Love you Papa.

घर मेरा एक बरगद है…..
मेरे पापा जिसकी जड़ है…!!
घनी छायो है मेरी माँ..
यही है मेरे आसमान…!!
पापा का है प्यार अनोखा..
जैसे शीतल हवा का झोका …!!
माँ की ममता सबसे प्यारी …
सबसे सुंदर सबसे नयारी….!!
हाथ पकड़ चलना सिखलाते
पापा हमको खूब घूमते ….!!
माँ मलहम बनकर लग जाती …
जब भी हमको चोट सताती..!!
माँ पापा बिन दुनिया सुनी
जैसे तपती आग की धुनी..!!
माँ ममता की धारा है …
पिता जीने का सहारा है…!!

Placed my hand on that old recipe book
Turning pages one by one
Reminiscing those good old days
When mommy cooked that delicacy
As she waited for dad to arrive home
Here I sit cherishing those memories
As I churn the ingredients slowly
With a little patience that's still left in me
Oh how I miss those good old days
For those were the times I enjoyed the most

As i was growing up, papa always said 'Sky is the limit. But sky is limitless. Define your own limit.'

He is my idol and my strength.
Love you papa!

He waited holding back strongly the entire drive home leaving his books in the passenger side.

The slamming door thrown by his hands stopped on footsteps that lead to the the attic.

His low budget office.

His sanctuary.

Her hiding spot.

Her most favorite place.

His that soon became theirs.

Retrieving his favorites and running up.

Triangular, tiny, scrappy, paint chipped off, hidden with framed pictures.

A ravens desk with a Manila lamp and dozens of cleansed decorative used plastic coffee cups.

His office. Her first place to look for him in His
sanctuary. Their sanctuary.

His gaze stops down at the spot stained with clay petite handprints when she tripped from running...

       He is lost
       And never knows
       Whether
       He is coming or going
       And even if he did
       He wouldn't know
       How to get there
       His mind
       Is a series
       Of blank maps
       Once lined
       And well traveled
       Now soggy and illegible
       And this pretty much
       Sums up his life.        JD

     He's off his rocker
     From all the drowned brained cells of
     Living in bottles.

Almost 11 months...
Yet, when reality hits, it hits like an unexpected giant tide...
Some dreams were wished to become  a reality and, there's reality that I truly wish did not exist...
How awesome it would be if everything were just a dream and I wake up from this to run towards him and he would be standing right there to embrace me like he always did...

"Time heals", "The show goes on" are certain phrases that I hear everyday these days... True, but the forced acceptance is suffocating at times...

"Whenever I watch any superhero movies, there's a voice deep inside that looks at them and says, you guys are nothing compared to my dad"...

I miss you Appa. You've taken a part of me with you ...

Realizing the love of our parents when they're around is an absolute blessing...

Else, it would only be a life filled with guilt...

A poem for my favourite person.

I don't know what favourite rhetorically means,
Just as perplexed as like a girl wears a "Boyfriend" jeans.
But, be it called what; Papa, you are the soul to my being.
You're the strength to my mind, and the sense to my feeling.

Everyone who knows you, have something to say to me,
"You're just like you're daddy", to this I could never disagree.
And this is not just a statement Papa, perhaps it completes me.
And I know that you feel proud, which sets my soul to glee.

You are more than just a human, the way you've been all long,
The pain, the wounds and all of the fears, yet stood always so strong.
My love is immense for you, and selfless is your hear...

I LOVE WRITING DAY

Sister: There isn’t a night where she says: I M... ... never mind... who cares... it’s late...

Child: But what does she always say, you didn’t finished...

Sister: Forget, it wouldn’t be that important anyway. It’s time for bed now.

Child: But Nora what strange story are you telling me. At least finish.

Sister: I just realized, that there are sometimes things that should be kept in a special place. When you are older you will understand.

Child: And how does this place look like?

Sister: It’s on your left side, where your heart lies, reserved only for special people and memories. People who care used that very often. It helps people to be in touch with others even though their aren’t...

Remember there are thousands brains to hate you but only two people who always love you unconditionally -
Your Mother and Father .

Keep your parents with loving care, you will only know their value when you see their empty chair!

I wish we could  fight,one more time, and end up glowering, eachother.
I wish we could play, one more time, and catch you up, cheating.
I wish I could demand, my wishes, one more time, and you be mine spinning machine.
I wish I could stand behind and hold your shirt tight when I'm afraid of this horror world.
I wish we could meet, just one more time.
