Walking on your wavelength,
I can feel you,
You ache like I do,
Love like I love,
A smile adorns your face
As brightly as it does mine,
Your battle wounds are Braille
Across the landscape of your universe,
Telling reasons why you are you,
Similar to the reasons why I am me;
Knowing me,
Allows me to know you,
Gives precious moments of connectivity,
Before we traverse our separate paths;
But how much better I am,
For having stumbled across you,
You,
Who have reminded me
We are all battle wounds
In various stages of healing;

This crazy idea of mine:
Maybe we could all help each other heal
Through the collective understanding
That I am you
And you are me.

PEACE AND LOVE

Exercise, budget, inner-peace...

Get serious about yourself for once in your life. You only have one.

I don't want to fall for the potential of who you might be. See, I fall fast, but I'm learning how to slow down. I'm a hopeful romantic but I don't want just anyone; I want a special someone. All I ask is this: be honest, and not first date honest, but be honest with exactly who you are like it's the last time we May talk. I'm not looking for perfect, I am looking for real, so please do not bring your representative. Bring the real you, flaws and all, and if we are meant to vibe then we will flow.

I miss that kind of love the most,
the kind that finds
new reaches of your soul,
the one that curls your toes
with just a simple kiss.
That’s what I miss -
the way you made me feel
deeper than this every day girl.
You made me feel extraordinary.

I don't compete against
other women.
To uplift others means
I'm never looking down on them.
I applaud their strength,
and I remind them that we never
know how strong we are
until we are tested.
And this life will test you...
But it's not a competition.
I want us all to make it.

Your gone which seems like forever never coming back again how can we go on from where we left off picking up from where the fighting was happening trying to remember the laughter when we were happy don't you want to keep that in mind and go on but it's turning into something that we regret leaving behind all the time we have spent and now your gone

"SOME DREAM UNCOMPLETED"
( KUCH KHWAAB AHURE SE.....)

Yes thats my diary's title. Seems Dramatic but its not.
Number of emotions, happiness, sorrows were captured.
Sometimes i penned eulogy of my own pain.
Sometimes my pen wrote the pain of someone whom i have never met..
Sometimes ocean, hills, old tree, even glasses 👓 too became my reason to write.

This Sometimes comes Everyday in my life.
Every night i write what i feel before sleep.
Every morning i kept my Diary under my pillow..
So that i will hide my emotions just with me..
My Diary is not just a bunch of papers ..for me its my true friend who lives with me since 20 years .. to listen me without any interruption.📚

Dear Jen,
In the words of the famous song people say money makes the world go round but I do not think that is true.
Love makes the world go round, the love I have for you
In a busy world with busy days we don't, always stop and say " I love you" to the ones we love,we let moments slip away.
Lately I have had so much time to sit and think of love,to think of those who mean so much to me and how I did not show them my love.
A gentle word,a caring touch,a smile or a kiss. Loving thoughts that reach out to embrace and pass to a person like a misty kiss.
Holding someone in your heart,praying God will hold them in his care. Loving thoughts which touch them even though you are not there.
My love fo...

I think he was only joking;
at least at the very start.
He started describing her--
With words touched my heart.
She was a very lovely lady
Who had nothing to say.
But he loved her ever so
and even still does today!
She left him and gently cast
him aside somehow this pains him
as he to this day he wonders why.

     If there were no time, no sense of beginning, no worry of ending.... Would the quality of life be as well as the quantity?
Would we understand the value of a moment?
Would we feel the magic of a kiss?
Would we know the significance in our ability or seize the opportunities otherwise we'd miss?
Would we whiteness a miracle of a first cry?
Or a rebirth on a Sunday morn?
Would we love with all we have?
Would we even try?
Would our choices reflect life lived?
Or would we merely exist....
Would we put off till tomorrow
Or give in to what we couldn't resist?
There's significant in this concept ;
Thought not all of us can see.

Dearest,
Today was a very normal day, I went on doing my daily chores. In the afternoon as I was lying down for a nap, a stream of thoughts passed through my mind. I missed you badly, you were not there and I just wanted to hug you.

I thought of our time together, all the fights we had and how we used to make up after each fight, all the happy memories we shared, the tough times of our lives when we stood by each other as pillars of support, our good byes, the breakup and everything. I remembered the reasons for breakup and then my eyes welled up. But then I remembered about the promise I made to myself to never cry for you again, and to never think of all these things.

And once again, lik...

Another fairy tale romance...!!   

In the middle of the night,  
Amidst the crowd going high...  
I saw a guy so attractive,   
Getting on my nerve, soothing to the eye...  

Lured by the persona I began to think,  
Should I give a start or resist the charm..  
The smile on his face made me a stalker,  
It was hard to get rid of that feeling...  
Seems like some one was holding my arm...   

Gathered all my courage & I approached the guy,
Breaked the ice by saying a Hi...
A smile came back with the hello on my way,

Consider the kitten fur. See how each individual hair glistens in just the right light. Do you see the colors? They amaze--not black, not just golden, they become a brand new illusion, and then return to the world you know, and then delight you again within their infinite chameleonic shifts.

Look through the key hole and dedicate your eye to a spot that you study with new eyes, and newer eyes still. The secret of the room beyond fills you with a yearning, and you spill back to a place you remember. It's just a moment. You squeeze your eyelids shut tightly to prevent complete escape, but it has passed thoroughly, leaving only the knowledge and comfort of something precious and innocent and w...

She treads through darkness,
Hidden by the blinds of the night.
She is a dark,cloaked mystery,
struggling to find her light.

A phantom darkness this seems,
A light at the end of the dark tunnel beams,
This phantasmagorical beauty,unseen
beheld by an unflinching hope
Holding at her seams.

this light is a mirage
A never -ending  stream
Her soul - an enchanting mirror
To the darkness that bewitches her dreams.
She is borne out of the darkness,
Abhorred by the light she must stay.
Her dreams- her salvation, her absolvence,
If they may.

LOVE NIGHT
----------------
Throbbing hearts lying beside each other.
His hands caressing my face,
Playing with my hairs.
Pecks that he give me on my cheeks,
Ignite my desires that I feel.
Lusty to press my lips against his.
He moving his fingers tenderly onto my skin.
Holding me tight into his arms.
Feeling like, we are inseparable.
Exposing each other through our skins,
Our breaths go high like deprived of oxygen.
Warmth of his skin,
Give shivers to me.
His eyes are enough to intoxicate me.
Whirling my senses,
He fills me with ecstasy.
His whispers into my ears,
Fills me with excitement.
Like there isn't any heaven,
That I have ever seen.
Melting into each other,
Our every nerve tingling....

My hand to the earth
My eyes to the sky
Open wide
And devour me
Spit out my failings
And broken pieces
Fill in my spaces with love
And faith
In acts of kindness
Being the thread that winds
Through all of us,
Binds the present with the past,
I wish I could hang on
An arm of the Milky Way
And see all the ripples
Since the beginning of humans,
Teach me the language
That echoes
Mark my skin with all the stars
In our galaxy
Twist time around my fingers
So I may feel it’s gentle sway
Tickle the air around me,
I want to know the stars
And the wishes they keep,
Devour me,
Like a shot of your favorite liquor;
Let me learn.

Some people just care too much.

One of my coworkers lives somewhere close to my place. That's what she said. This evening both of us happened to leave college at the same time. I saw her take a different route to her house. Out of curiosity, I stopped her and asked.. Where does this road lead to? She laughed. She must have laughed at my ignorance. Anyway, I just wanted to know if there was another route that led to my house. Even if I'm handed a Google map, there is a possibility of me getting lost. I'm that bad at discovering and remembering routes.

" This route leads to the same place. Wanna try it out?" She asked. I followed her. The road was even and broad unlike the one I usually take....

If each one of us take small amount of time to have a frank and honest conversation with ourselves, All of our tendency and impulses will emerge into something meaningful.

Because when we face ourselves, There can't be any filters and layers which can divert our thought process towards victimhood. We must have to accept who we are and what we did. There can't be any doors of escapism.

Almost every time in crisis situations, we find escape mechanism instead of coping mechanism. Its not our faults at all, the world is full of victims. So we will always been appreciated for playing at victimhood and always face resistance when we play leader role for coping mechanism.

There's always a rainbow after the storm.  You may not understand why things happen, but they always find and work their way out. In moments of doubt, what you need to do is believe. Believe that you can. Believe that this is just another journey that you need to take. Believe that in your situation, God is still greater.

You have a great God who is willing to be with you every step of the way. He is always there from the start of the storm until the end. Whatever you experience right now does not happen because God wants you to suffer. It happens because God knows you can. You are a conqueror. You are a survivor.

DIM LIGHTS
-----------------
A cursed soul,
Scuffling with her inner demons.
Suffocating breaths,
Felt like, 'No! Not anymore!'
Those dim lights in my life,
Scared me much more.
More than the fear of darkness.
More than being forgotten with no regrets.
Those dim lights!
Which gave shivers to me.
The sweat that drips from my body seeing it.
Those dim lights,
Which were worse than the darkness.
Cause, everytime when I wished to see it getting brightened,
It back stabbed me leaving me into the world of darkness.
Everytime it gave me a false hope,
That everything is fine.
It felt like, it hypnotized me somehow.
Cause I had no control over my mind.
When I got comfortable with dark,
It flickered ...

        The remembrance........
           

A letter to remember is what I wish...
But have my voice ever reached to you?
A shard of steel is stuck on my skin,
Pain pulsating again and again,

You were a stab in my chest to begin with
Sinking deeper as the sands flooded

I saw you as one to keep the wound from bleeding.....
And although it reeked of my blood, and flesh
your sinking is what saved Me..........

You sit upon my favorite pedestal.
You sit me on the one hidden
deep in your closet heart,
dented and cracked.

He says,
"-you put me on a pedestal.
"...you remind me of hope-
"you remind me deeply,
"my prayers are never answered."

I wonder if we both fell-
Me from yours,
You from mine,
If we'd find we mirror each other.

Take me up to the Hotel Great
Makes me guitar of your Lust
Pull my strings nice and fast
While rainfall out side puddles make
Let's in side puddles solve.

*Live You*

They say, "An apple a day
Keeps the doctor away"
But I believe
We make our own health and happiness
Wherein music soothes the soul,
Variation keeps life exciting,
And childlike wonder keeps us young
So keep strumming those strings
With life's harmony
Have a camp out in a hotel room
To switch things up
And always jump in puddles
While the rain drenches your fears
Live long
    Live well
       Live you.                              JD

STRINGS of innocence were
Ripped apart by an APPLE

Skylark Challenge #104
Skylark Spectacular

He was mocking me
And the life we had shared
As he expressed his intentions
Through hand gestures
As if his rust covered pistol
Could actually do the trick
But soon enough
I'm sure he would try
So I consistently
Had to think on my feet
In order to plan my escape
From this empty room
A room
That housed so many memories
Both good and bad
But now was just a cell
Driving me to insanity
The creased pages of my diary
Depicted the particles
Of my former life; of our life
A toxic melange
Of scuffed and broken promises
That could never again
Be polished or repaired.

Words :-particles, think, mocking, creased, scuffed, rust

Stop bang bang first
Mocking to self next
Press your creased shirt
Polish your scuffed shoes
Give up particles of sadness
Forget past stains and rust
Give to mind proper rest
Call me when clear your heart
I think, my escape
Would be upon your shoulder.

Your memories dwell here
In this Creased Scuffed heart
Holding on to every bit
Of your essence,
I keep adoring
The way you made me
Into a self lovable mess
And prepared me for all
That was going to come.

But you my love
You are my strength
You are an open book
To my escape,
You held the particles
Of this soul
And gave them
A perfect shape.

To me you are my "All"
You are the cure
To my past
Full of Rust,

Don't you ever Think
Of leaving me
You've been my all
Love and lust...

Today
This heart is more
More than just an empty room,
I can face ...

Their indirect criticisms
sting me like a serpent but
inspite of that I subconsciously
has fallen in it.
They love me passionately but
not in the way which I want,
They belong to my semblance
but I don't belong to them.
I always shut my tongue btw
my jaws ,though  my passive voice
always poke me to burst out
entirely.

                In the midst of chaos,
                      Began a war.
               A breathtaking combat.
        Between the Heart and the Mind.
               Wounded was the heart,
                  And won the Mind,
                   Over the dead me.
                        Yet alive.

As I read the letters of Muslim,
Christian, Hindu, and Buddhists alike, I see the same messages in between the lines.
The messages of love and kindness and how loving one another is the key to transcendence.

This being witnessed, said and written  as proof for all to see, yes we can all get along as a world people. We are not at all different one from another.
We ALL must be diligent to love those who would disrupt the harmony that we work so hard for.
It is not wrong to discuss a difference of opinion, it is wrong to kill people because of it.
When are the just going to overcome the unjust?
How long do we allow chaos to reign in all of our countries?

It really is very simple.

Love...

Solo escribo para que tu sepas lo que estoy sintiendo
Se que es extraño y que te suena absurdo porque estas con él
Solo escribo para no quedarme sin hacer un intento
Tantas canciones que te he escrito y se han quedado en un papel

Solo escribo para darle un golpe a mi cobardía
No digas nada quédate callada déjame esto a mi
Que en estas cosas de salir perdiendo yo tengo mas experiencia
Y es que no sabes cuanto he practicado que debo decir

Y antes de irme quiero decirte
Que no paso ni un minuto sin pensar en ti
Y quiero que sepas que aunque me cuesta
Esta vez no voy a arrepentirme
Porque quiero decírtelo todo antes de irme

No estoy escribiendo para hacerte daño y eso te lo juro

Freedom is a term thrown about as if it is as simple as remembering how to blink. Freedom is something that most think they have, yet it does not exist. Freedom is the illusion we tell ourselves to give us a sense of power. As long as we have freedom we can do anything. But in true we are tied down by countless things. We are obligated to follow rules. We can also be held back by how much  by materialistic items we have. We are never truely free, we are all tied down. And yet as we are all tied down, we are all connect. And from these connections we learn things about one another. We start to live not only for us, but for others. We learn to love. We learn that freedom is not only an illusion...

To my fellow lettrists:

Any soccer fans around? I may not be the hugest fan--I don't know every statistic and famous player in the game--but I love watching the World Cup. In fact, watching it last year helped me become more interested in the sport. In our violent world, it's heartwarming to see different countries come together and exchange a common interest.

And despite feeling disillusioned by FIFA's corruption, I am more than ever committed to their international competition, because we're now in the middle of the WOMEN'S World Cup!

It's unbelievable how little attention the competition receives given the amount of  talent there is in the game right now. Take Abby Wambach, a fo...

MY REALITY

Tossing my contribution into the potluck of this week's topic.

It's difficult to actually say, with any certainty, how I am viewed by my peers. Not just for me, but for anyone. See, we are a lot of different things to different people. Some are close friends, others nearly strangers, perhaps stepping in and out of our life for only a brief moment. There's family bonds, casual acquaintances, and everyone else in between. We are something different to all these people, and to sum up what we we are to others is therefore nearly impossible; it is a narrow inquiry of a unquantifiable subject.

That sounds a lot like I'm avoiding the question. Also, it's kind of boring.

Here's the ...
