Wanting to be free
Yet stay in the same place.
I’m a cliche and a joke.
My mind is broken and so is my heart.
Craving healing but not knowing how to live healed.

Constantly thinking it was my fault
Wondering what I could have done
Never thought you’d break my heart
I’ve now become so numb
Scared to open up
To someone new
Will they hurt
My heart
Too?

Fingerless work of an incredibly talented blind man.
Swirls and splashes,
Green, purple, pink, yellow.
Abstract design telling a different story,
For every person who personalizes it.
He, who shed the tears,
Can only remember the torture of every Mark.

हमने महफ़िलो को यू ही ज़िक्र नहीं बेचा
जो संभल न सका फिक्र
हमसे उनका अतरंग ही कुछ ऐसा है
पर खुमार इंसानियत का यू चढ़ा है
सुलगते ख्वाब इनायत से धुआँ है

वो शहद सा सवेरा मेरा भी होता
जो संभल न सका लफ़्ज सबके इल्म का
फिर हम भी न बेचते रूह को अपने

Life’s so unpredictable you come across a stranger, and before you know that stranger becomes your everything.

Never loss hope everything happens for a reason. Always be thankful for what you have and those you don’t have because if you don’t. It means that was never meant for you.!

Four three two one zero. In this order the reality of our friendship ends, not even leaving me with number one!.   

just me with an emptiness zero, which now I really appreciate more than ever, because through it I learn about my empty self and how to except the fact that you are vast and there are no limits and lines to divide you or cuts you in halves, only to be a whole and complete.

Not fearing to lose anything that isn’t yours in the first place, only the ones and the things that are really meant for you will blend in you without any trivial excuses or Unbearable explains.

Love can go full circle sometimes,
& pain can be just a step behind.

We started as friends, then had some fun, & then I showed emotion while intoxicated.

My head & heart were not connected, as my heart was opening but my mind stayed closed.

I was still in too much pain & closed myself off from the world. Why couldn’t someone love me? Was I not good looking enough?

Not charming enough? Not funny enough? Or was it my job title?

The chemistry I had felt was infectious, but she only saw me as a friend.

Then I closed myself off emotionally & spiraled. I’m sorry you caught that end of the stick.

You deserved better, & I always pushed you away when you got close.

The Casualty
———————
All I ever wanted
was to know you..

Your pet peeves & daydreams,
Your scars & sadly, your intoxicated extremes.

But, you ran way too fast
for me. I couldn’t keep up.
“Slow down!” I’d yell.  
Running faster & faster towards my glorious hell.

In love I had fell.
Skinned knees & a dirty dress.
Nonetheless, I gave my best.

Unaccepting that you’ll always choose liquor over me.

Unanswered calls in the dark,
And what’s left of my naive heart, leaves me feeling cheaper than your bottle of Seagrams meaning you must’ve been just a reason or a season.

Talking to the paper
Hello world ! Here I am
Without guile or airs
“Naked as a Jay Bird “,

As if other birds wore clothes.
Raw as a slab of beef ,
Rare as a passion fruit
Yes it’s me.. not beautiful
Just unique, alive, surviving to fight

Do not allow yourself
to become lost
to negative thoughts.
You are not alone
in your level of thinking.
Things might seem impossible right now
but finding your voice
and asking for help
is the first step
on the road to recovery.

All through our life, everything keeps changing,
The only constant in us
is our personality.

The character roles we play
differs but the essence of man behind doesn't .

It is the one thing we build for ourselves and is ours.

It is what sees the end and beyond.

The key is shaping it with all the goodness we could muster.

Many a times, being good and doing good seems to fail us.

Happiness may not come easy.

But, look at the strength of you, that survived it all.

Being good doesn't mean we fail, it means we sustain and make peace.

MY MOTHER WAS A BUTTERFLY

She was a butterfly,
Without her wings, she flew,
She lacked the silky, black and orange adornment,
But, her Beauty was equal and true,
From here to there, she fluttered,
As if the ground did not exist,
Our time with her was momentary,
Short and sweet, it was,
To catch a glimpse  of her,
In her fleeting flight,
Was, wonderous, an extraordinary sight,
Spirit full of freedom,
From emergence, of the cocoon,
In her world there were no ceilings,
There were no walls, to bind,
She fluttered, and mingled in crowds of her like kind,
And traveled through the day, as if she magically avoided the chains of time,
There are many, that seem perfectly the same as her,
But none cou...

My balcony has one chair.
I think this isn't fair.
It was supposed to be two.
Looks like my sky isn't Blue.

The storm is here.
I don't have fear.
I like the wind.
I have not sinned.

There is no need to fall
I have had it all.
I have everything to gain.
Just a little bit of pain.

I sit on this chair.
Storm is trying to scare.
It has started to rain.
The thunder is insane.

I love it to the core.
I just want it more.
I am the drenched one
Letting it out until I'm done.

So happily enjoying the storm.
I am now in full form.
This Storm has got me trained.
For the things that I have gained.

I was afraid to open my window which was closed since long enough. I was comfortable in my own space without any foreign air sprinting inwards. I was afraid, that the dust that covered my table won't look pretty anymore. I was afraid of the change.

And then, a storm broke the glasses of my windows, it rushed in and created a mess. As if it changed everything. But now that every shattered piece of glass was on the floor and I was unwilling to clean it up, somehow I gathered my strength and started cleaning all the mess bit by bit every passing hour.

I got tired and I slept. I had a sound dreamless sleep finally after so long. When...

We are creatures of habit. We stick to our daily routine yet sometimes things don’t end up the way we intend them to. No matter how carefully we plan everything, life still gets in the way. But as the resilient beings that we are, we adjust, we adapt and we compromise. We move forward carrying this heavy load, and then we thrive.

The taste of purple : A short story

I was a kid, rather a chubby kid. I guess about 6 year old. It was first day of school and I was early enough to occupy the first bench. The next day I saw a boy sitting at my place and I told him to sit somewhere else. To me, as a kid, it was MY place. How could someone else take it away from me ?

But he did not listen, he hit me in my stomach. I hit him on his face and that is how we started fighting. But then something happened. His leg slipped and he fell on the floor hitting his head on the table before falling. Moments later there was a clear bump on his forehead and it had turned blue.

She's a beautiful dreamer with eyes like an angel
A body to die for and a mind just like mine.
She keeps all her thoughts and dreams in a journal
The passion she writes with keeps growing with time.
Sometimes her dreams are playful and vivid
Sometimes her thoughts are scary and dark.
I wish I could be there to help and to heal her
And put back together her sad, broken heart.

If she just lets me in and gives me her trust
I'll hold her together and keep her from breaking.
I've already fallen for her beauty and charm
My mind and my body are hers for the taking.
So my dream girl exists I've finally found her
Scarred and beaten but a spirit unbroken.

Dear people of the world,

We are all butterflies unable to see our own beauty. Only others can truly see it. If people say you are not beautiful they are the caterpillars who do not see the beauty you posses, only your strangeness in how different you are. That does not mean that your beauty is nonexistent, only that they focus on how you are different and not the beauty and color of your wings.

There are three people standing on the top of a mountain. This mountain overlooks humanity and its entirety. They can see time pass, from the cavemen to the astronauts that went to the moon, to the scientist today curing cancer. One of them looks up at the sky and says: "Breathtaking." The only girl of the three tilts her head up too and sighs lightly. She closes her eyes and searches blindly for a hand of the second man. Their hands intertwine and she guides his body closer to her. Finally the last one of the trio aims his eyes at the sky too. There they are, three people, on the top of a mountain, having the possibility to see humanity and its entirety, yet choosing to look at the sky. They...

THE MYSTERY

That air of intimidation blew me over.

The evening grew duskier. My Roman antique clock tick tocked.

The tenor turned cold. My phone kept ringing like one fire alarm. I ignored.

I ran down the staircase, only to be found alone in my home. I panicked.

There was a letter on the diners table. And it read just what happened above. The same lines written down neatly with no signature. I flipped it over. It was plain. Trembled was I.

I opened the door of my store room. The room was organized, like one cleaned up crime scene. But the pungency was hard to ignore.

I blocked my nose and walked further, into the corner of the room. She was there, waiting for me. Lifeless.

Dear letterists

At first when I was very very young, I was told that a home is a building you live in. A building made of bricks and cement and doors and windows.

So I loved mine with all my heart. Decorated the walls and the windows with little drawings and stuff. But then one day, I had to leave that house.

As I grew older, I realised that a house becomes a home because of the people who live in it. The memories they create there. The walls and the windows and the doors become witnesses to those memories as they are created, remembered and relived over the years.

So I decided to make a human being my home. For some time it was wonderful. But I always slept with one eye open. There w...

Beauty surrounds
in forms
unbelievable .

The morning rays,
when the birds chirp.

When the kid downstairs
comes to play.

The aroma of coffee,
and the food i cook.

When the crows come in
for their daily meal.

When the love of my life
smiles knowingly
with eyes half closed.

As i water the plants,
the flowers bloom,
with it my hope.

When the elderly man
walks across
for this daily labor,
so does my inspiration.

My parents call
all laugh and smiles,
showing me life is to
be lived.

Life brings with it
Many lessons,
Many opportunities,
And happiness.

We smother it
with negativity
and blame the
darkness !

If one minute,
We sit and watch,
The glory dawns,
so does hidden pleasures.

Dear Drew,

Thank you so much for Lettrs!

The past few days have been unexpected and suddenly, it felt like the world I made for myself in this app seemed kind of lost. There were critics saying that the app is gone, but somewhere in my heart, I knew you and your team were out there, working hours to bring it back to us. I was praying, wishing it was all temporary and never have I ever before felt that void in my life, that I felt those days Lettrs was inaccessible.
It was like my daily ritual, first thing after waking up and the last before going to bed, wishing it was there, like before. And there it was!!!!!

There is no synthetic scent that can capture the essence of a flower.
An aromatic formula that can never be duplicated, at best only replicated.
Humans cannot concoct essential ingredients such as a cool breeze, the morning dew, the sun's rays, the flutter of a butterfly's wings, a bee's tiny footprints.
And how absurd is it that I pass these little gifts from God every morning, every afternoon, every evening without taking a moment to stop and appreciate that natural fragrance in the air?
Today I remind myself to be aware of my surroundings,
I remind myself to stop and smell the flowers.

Hey dearest,

Sometimes
it takes a situation
to realise our feelings,
And yesterday
did that to me.

You are the most wonderful person i have met so far and your love has healed me . It had been the reason for my smile from the time we met till now.

Every tiny bit of memory brings with it a happiness that's irreplaceable. How many times you have surprised me and made me feel things i never expected to.

How many days you would just come anytime. And the things we would do ! The openness, honesty, friendship, love.. all those amazing emotions. Uninhibited pure care and affection.  Every word of yours had coloured up my day.

You have no idea how caring and genuine you could be. You just...

On a ledge
we stand,
a delicate balance
of fall and firm.

A void looms large
An empty canvas
The past paints
The present follows
Is it ever empty ?

Trials and tribulations
Pushing on
a chosen path,
of we run
someone's trajectory.

Validation
becomes primary,
Acceptance
turns necessity,
Are we ever ourself?

Inferior
is what we think and
Let be bullied.
Perpetrators feed
their fill
to next kill.

Of we run,
tears and fears later,
on a given trajectory,
for whom
we never know.

Stop once
from the drop
A spiralling abyss,
Value yourself
You wont fall.

Even
a slip from the edge
Means nothing.
The world moves,
So you stand
on the ledge
balance for yourself
Life depends on it.

Do not allow yourself
to become lost
to negative thoughts.
You are not alone
in your level of thinking.
Things might seem impossible right now
but finding your voice
and asking for help
is the first step
on the road to recovery.

I will not be a hearty meal that you feed on
as though I am just something to be consumed
until your level of hunger is satisfied.
I am more than that.
When you dine at my table,
there is an expected level of behaviour,
if you cannot comply,
do not expect a feast.

I have danced with you,
the world paused,
and in that moment,
we were finally free.
I have held you,
but my arms can’t seem to forget,
the way forever feels.
I have loved you,
you have loved me too,
although rivers may flow,
at different speeds,
in the end,
they always return,
to the sea.

Sometimes, you must experience a breakdown in order to break down all of the things that are breaking you down. Once your life feels like a mess with nothing but darkness and rain, you will begin to focus your energy into alleviating the stress and finally healing the pain. @PLECCA

I am drawn to the sea
and its salty spray,
my thoughts preserved,
far beyond the shore.
I am lost,
I am found,
with every wave,
the tide,
its pull,
I break,
I bleed,
from the sea I was born,
and to the sea,
I will return,
when I leave.

It's been more than a week of unending work - hardly any sleep and random munchies for meals. "Don't know how long I can go on like this", I utter at last to my friend, breaking down in sheer exhaustion. It's the middle of the week and none of us have enough time for cranky conversation or consolation, and so we hang up in another couple of minutes. It's been ages since the Sun decided to show all its might - scorching heat and skyrocketing temperatures with no respite in the form of winds! What could possibly be worse than this!

But alas! The last couple days showed just what can be worse: enormous grey clouds playing hide-and-seek with the sun! So now with the heat is the humidity as well ...

I have a long list of things that make me happy and a longer one that don't. But since I'm pretty good at segmenting, my focus remains on all things bright and beautiful. So here are my top seven joys, in that order:

1. Dance: both Indian classical and modern Western
2. Reading: give me a crime thriller and watch my surroundings melt away
3. Chocolates: anything above 55% cocoa content is always welcome
4. Conversations: deep and meaningful ones with a little humour sprinkled across; preferably with my family though, and probably close friends
5. Coffee: a black, sugar free cuppa is all I need to get in the "zone"
6. Writing and Calligraphy: some times content and at others the fonts take my...

Can you tell me this?

Why is it that we strive for freedom from all shackles - mental, financial, psychological - and yet when that freedom is just around the corner, we feel more scared of it than we've ever feared anything else?

Is it just the trepidation aroused by the change that's to come, or is it that we were only in love with the idea of freedom and not freedom itself? For, to be truly free, wouldn't it mean to be rid of all attachments, expectations and dependence? To be able to live as we wish without being burdened by the constructs of society. And are we really ready to be in that state of existence?

We're supposedly social beings, with an inherent urge for association - with p...

#582 - ‘Lost’
 
I walk, without fear, towards the
promise of you. Following every
flower, in bloom, that still carries
your scent.
You always exist in all the places I
cannot reach; they hold on to your
beauty in ways I have only dreamt of
because all that I own are dreams.
Dreams of you.
Dreams of us.
I often find myself overwhelmed by
dreams, hoping one day I will wake,
and you’ll no longer be a dream to me.

Talking to the paper
Hello world ! Here I am
Without guile or airs
“Naked as a Jay Bird “,
My mother used to say
As if other birds wore clothes.
Raw as a slab of beef ,
Rare as a passion fruit
Yes it’s me.. not beautiful
Just unique, alive, surviving to fight

Here's some good advice I read from a book I'm reading randomly
throughout the book, here and there... a bit of every where randomly.
The title of it is The Laws of Human Nature by Robert Greene
have to give credit when credit is due and I like his sound advice, makes sense
if you have an open mind and can see things from another view anyways
here it is. I probably should take this own advice right along my road since I could use it. We'll see...

I was parched dry
Looking for reasons
Searching answers
To why i should
wake up everyday.

Letting go
Felt easier
For i was always
in need of happiness.

Happiness
The one missing thing
And then i met you,
You showed me
Happiness every form.

Without you
It is not just
I would miss
my reason to live,
But
The pain would
kill me everyday.

Because now
i know you,
i have experienced you
and
I am nothing
without you.

I cannot take
that pain ever.

Beauty surrounds
in forms
unbelievable .

The morning rays,
when the birds chirp.

When the kid downstairs
comes to play.

The aroma of coffee,
and the food i cook.

When the crows come in
for their daily meal.

When the love of my life
smiles knowingly
with eyes half closed.

As i water the plants,
the flowers bloom,
with it my hope.

When the elderly man
walks across
for this daily labor,
so does my inspiration.

My parents call
all laugh and smiles,
showing me life is to
be lived.

Life brings with it
Many lessons,
Many opportunities,
And happiness.

We smother it
with negativity
and blame the
darkness !

If one minute,
We sit and watch,
The glory dawns,
so does hidden pleasures.

A night to remember
where sleep was standing away in a surprise.
i was awake but not sad
blink in my eyes, blush on my cheeks.
It was visible to all my night geeks.

My pillow hugged me for no reason,
after a long, he found no tears on him.
Ah! that may sound a little weird
but i found a reason to smile without fear.

Though Love tried hard to derailed me,
HOPE holds me, peck me, stayed awake with me
to make me realise that
I still have life to live without any reason.
Just live it, love it, till I can ..

A night to remember
where i met with myself .
totally changed persona ,
behaving like a child.
blushing like a teenage
silent like an ocean with
love infinite .

feeling shy somewhere...

Today,
You asked me
something i don't
have an answer to !

I said i would be happy
if you are,
now when you are smiling
I sometimes don't.

Why have i changed ?
does it mean
i no longer care ?
care too much?
or care for more ?

It just means,
i am running scared
of what could happen,

i have stopped believing
that we can be happy,

i keep anticipating
the next crushing pain,

Those,
are the scars,
the remnants of past,
the lesson learnt,
happiness is just a word
peace comes with a price
I ain't the lucky one !

Hyderabad , India

As the distance increases
And the probability of meeting decreases
We realize
'I'll see you soon', isn't just a line
Its an emotion, a confirmation
A hope and sometimes the only the thing
That keeps us together and holds us forever.
Because no matter how long it is
I'll still see you soon Amigo  <3

The Grand Finale

Despite having such adverse conditions like a tightly wound up fist thrust full force in my face, these less than stellar circumstances I’m faced to deal with despite making a reputable and honorable attempt at getting it right, in doing the right thing by putting my best foot forward and staying positive in hopes I’d manifest positive force energy. I find that things certainly haven’t worked out to my heart’s desire and have been so far, less than advantageous.

I’m trying so hard to create the best case scenario, making the best of it with a positive attitude. I’m a little nervous about my current situation and I want so badly to go home but once again due to no one’s faul...

Months ago the heat squandered me. A long time before Summer ever started. I don't think about it enough, what I've been through and where I'm going. And I think about it too much.

I thought I would spend the rest of my life wasting away in one place with nowhere to go but down. I thought there was nothing for me at all until persistent voices broke down my deafening walls. Then I looked a little bit closer. I realized that I could have anything I put forth the effort for. Why shouldn't I? And what more do I have to do other than breathe to be loved? It's the contract I entered into, being born. As long as I breathe I am loved. As long as I live and after I die to live again.

The first letter goes to myself.

Learn to make it on your own, learn to trust... only yourself.
Learn to love yourself first, and then who deserves it.
Learn to understand, to understand many things that you may not accept.
Learn to observe.
Learn to listen.
And above all, learn not to be ashamed of being who you are.

From myself, to myself.
And also to those who need it.

It's been awhile since I wrote anything of significance in any capacity.  So many years, so many decades I searched for the "others" . Those mythical beings that were in easy possession of an infinite array of weird, magical and unfathomable ideas.  The kind of folks I loved listening to and sharing with until 4 in the morning .
I traveled 48 states, 8 provinces and 3 countries over decades and sought out these unicorns,  these ghosts of the world.

That the sad (but expected) and quite tragic lesson that I learned was that they or you (I suspect you who read this...) are very, very rare.  I cannot count the many times when I started a conversation with someone,  got my hopes up in the exc...

No matter how hard I tried,
I always ended up losing you..
I kept you so close to me;
But you still chose to leave.
I spent my savings on you;
But you never gave a heed.
I slept thinking about you last night;
Wanting to keep you safe,
because you were my only one,
My dearest!
But when I woke up , you were gone, Gone like the wind...

I let you keep my sight together, but you still wandered away everytime.
I never let anybody have you..
I treated you like my own baby;
But you were least bothered to hold on to me or my feelings!!

Hello there,
I found this hidden gem when I was looking for a writing app or something or other (can't remember exactly) a few months ago then I got busy and stuck in the rat-races of life these days but isn't that the same with everyone. So it sat there on my phone in a folder that I access quite regularly just collecting dust (so to speak), so today I finally  had some downtime so I finally decided to set up an account and give this app a try.

I am not sure how exactly this really works but the way that I think that it works is that its like talking to the moon and stars in the sky above me when I am missing someone I love who has passed away just hoping that I could hear their voice o...

Look around you. Observe the world that you are living in.

Can you feel the beating of a thousand desperate hearts?

Can you see the fear for tomorrow in the looks of people?

Can you hear the cries of a thousand mothers who are losing their children each day?

Now ask yourself, is this the place where you always want to live?

Is this the place where each child expects to grow up when they open their innocent eyes and see the world for the first time?

Are you able to look in the eyes of those children without the feeling of shame for this reality full of evil, which they have to face?

Is this what we have prepared for them throughout centuries and years?

We cannot deny ...
