Confound in the maze of
My inner turmoil
I forgot to see the crack
Letting in a speck of light
Reminding me there is tomorrow
Come what may
You are breathing
You will live
There is yet a hope for you
So get up and get going
You have all the time in life
To be what you wish to be
To attain your vision.

#ShadesOfLove
Does pain beautify love
Or
Love Adorns pain...
The thought of it,
Made headway looking at the rain...
The poem she tried to pen,
Escaping from the one,
Leaving behind, who ran...
Days, months and years passed by,
Looking back had smiles those mesmerised...
A feeling of being Numb,
Left her without a clue,
There she keeps standing,
Looking at the bird,
High in the sky that flew!!!

As you stand on the cusp of womanhood
Reaching to be yourself
Know how proud I am of you
Your compassion,your personality,your wisdom and your grace
May your passage to womanhood be easy
May you face it with an open heart
May you know that my love surrounds you
Even when we are apart
As you move into your future

I'd go without my phone,couldn't manage an hour without putting something in my mouth!!
Hunger games definitely, couldn't be doing with all those dinosaurs
Think I need to be the most intelligent in the room because I had to look up what  polyglot meant!!!!
I'd rather talk to animals than people,especially my dog  so that when he looks at me with his big brown eyes ,I really know what he is thinking.

I vividly remember a time when I was whole
But like a vulture picking at my bones,she steals my soul
creating a void in my heart and a vague feeling of fear of what is to come
As I become weaker and a shadow of myself
Her power grows stronger
Her eyes gleam with the maleficent force flowing from her
I wander the woods a shadow of myself
Unable to escape her as she leeches my life force dry

I've spent
The last month
Wavering
Between guilt
And justification
For the life of me
I cannot decide
Which is the truth
Or how I should feel
     Maybe it is time
     To let myself
     Off of the hook
     And negotiate
     A compromise
     That will set
     Both my mind
     And his spirit free.

Always remember, nobody will ever leave you if they feel you are irreplaceable. Those who have abandoned you will never appreciate your presence. Just like you cannot place someone in the middle of nature and expect them to love their surroundings when they are unable to cherish its beauty. @PLECCA

People need touch and affection. I grew up in Spain where people are warm, touchy and affectionate.
I sometimes miss that. So I try to hug, kiss and touch everyone. My kids and husband always ask me to touch or massage them. To other people I’m not that close I just hug or touch. Some people think I’m crazy, but to me is quite normal. It’s a natural reaction.
So please don’t hold back any feelings. Hug, touch or kiss often. It is a great feeling.

Distress.

Fear.

It's unavoidable.

There's always something that we are scared of. A certain kind of anxiety felt by all of us. It creeps around within our worst nightmares. Burrowing from the unknown. And when it starts to kindle, it will gradually take away our happiness. Until the only thing that's left is...

Rather than leaving a like and leave, write about what you feel about what I wrote or what anyone wrote. I'm a text book case of infj and I'm introvert. I write here dreaming someone will understand the emotions behind what I write. I don't even mind belittling myself to say out loud that I'm looking to people who talk really. Among all the species here in earth only we humans are given with the blessing of talking and writing about our emotions and stuff, let's celebrate this god-given gift. Talk and write, write in the comment sections too and maybe you will make the day of someone else or even change someone's else life forever; words have such magic.

You Made Me Write:
One question. A million answers, but for me, there is no thinking again. It's something clear that you are the reason words flow, emotions get frozen to some words, thoughts turn into some tales that are hard to be spoken even if I try. You are the only reason who makes me write. The warmth of your love tends to take me to farthest lands where magic exists and people know the deepest meanings of emotions. Your tender feelings make me create pieces of tales which might not have a meaning at all, but since they smell just like you I call them some poetic traces of you.
You reside in them, yes the words might speak of a different character each time I put my thoughts to word...

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!

You loved me when I hated myself. You laughed with me and sometimes at me, and you've kept on loving me when I was gone. Undeniably you're my biggest fan and that's fine because you're my hero.
I would need to create a whole new language to honor you and to express my gratitude.

You mesmerize; you hypnotize
Moments with you looks enticed!

Hold your breathe, close your eyes

Will give you a pleasant surprise...

I lean in a little, diving in your deep eyes
Entangled in it, my emotions can't hide
Holding you, my heart is gushing
When you shy I love that blushing

Embracing your touch...
Forgetting all the petty lies.

Your warmth entices my heart & everything looks so fine...
As I wrestle your tongue down with mine.

Nothing at this moment is verbal
The love we have is eternal.

Seven years back, she had realised it was love. She had taken a year to let the feeling pass, to let his thoughts take a backseat, to let the pangs of longing fade. They refused to.
That year, she knew, they belonged together.
She hardly saw him, for he was thousands of miles away, in another university, working hard for his dream. He gave her a call sometimes, and they shared a few minutes reminiscing of old times as friends in school,  sometimes they would talk of their difficult times, and that was all.

They stood by each other.The world might have seen it for what it was, they didn’t. They hid everything under the veil of friendship. She being afraid of losing him as her friend, kept qu...

There was a good news this week! A couple in our family had their first baby after a long time.

We all were eagerly waiting for the final news as they are settled abroad. It was the topic of discussion for many days in a household, with questions like "when is the delivery?" or "when is the baby due?"
Finally, the news came that "Didi ki aaj delivery honi hai!"
As we were sitting on the dining table, my younger son looked confused, and for some reason, excited. He asked me, "Mumma, kis cheez ki delivery honi hai aaj?

“You girls ready to go? Please get your shoes and coats on,” She continued.
The men hooting and hollering in the other room was terrifying the girls. Katherine has previously spoken to her husband about this "excitement" over a game. Seems this issue needs further attention.

If the person is already suffering; even if she is being unreasonable, even if her reaction is beyond your understanding, even if she don't get to explain herself, you don't show her anger. You just BE there.

Ps: Suffering and Loneliness.

The first few times you do somebody a favour,
You are being sweet,
Soon you'l be misused and called a fool,
If you let it consistently repeat.

Main maan nahi Sakti aisa hua na ho
Use kho k tu roya na ho
Dil k zakhm itne gehre h tere
Main maan nahi sakti tu khoya na ho
Use kho k tu roya na ho

Dhadkan thi vo teri
Chahta tha tu usko
Paane k liye use tune khud Ko khoya na ho
Main maan nahi sakti tu roya na ho

Har galti maaf ki uski
Har pal intezar Kiya uska
Shayad samajh jaae vo tere pyar Ko
Is umeed me to soya na ho
Main maan nahi Sakti tu roya na ho

Uske ghar ke chakkar lagane
Uski ek jhalak Ko aakhe tarasane
Bawalo ki tarah uske sheher me jaane se
Main maan nahi Sakti tu khud Ko rok paaya ho
Usko kho k main maan nahi sakti tu roya na ho
Yun hi uske sapno me khoya na ho

Neend se uth ke usko kareeb paane k vo umeed
Hath faila k us...

i gave you everything
i gave you so much
i helped you
it was you and me.
and you packed your bags
and you left me
my eyes filled with tears
“he’ll be back”
foolish i was
to believe that
you’ll come back to me
you’ll tell me you still love me
now i believe
that you took my heart
and you broke it piece by piece
till there was nothing left
now...
i’m dead.

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.

My bed is empty. The cage is full. The prison walls collapse.
They call me bad, but I  am good,
I promise I am good.
I call out to papa in the night, but daddy disappeared.
They call him bad, but he is good,
I promise he is good.
Brothers and sisters link arms and hearts that our souls may never be lonely...
They call us bad, but we are good,
We know that we are good.

People need touch and affection. I grew up in Spain where people are warm, touchy and affectionate.
I sometimes miss that. So I try to hug, kiss and touch everyone. My kids and husband always ask me to touch or massage them. To other people I’m not that close I just hug or touch. Some people think I’m crazy, but to me is quite normal. It’s a natural reaction.
So please don’t hold back any feelings. Hug, touch or kiss often. It is a great feeling.

Caro amore mio ,  
Dirti mi manchi risulterebbe inutile tanto quanto ridicolo .
Ormai il mi manchi è scritto sui muri di ogni città e il vento è stanco di portare nel suo gelido vento parole vuote ....piene di un sentimento flebile come una fiamma di candela nel mezzo di una tormenta  .
Effettivamente in questa lettera vorrei farti arrivare la stanchezza del mio cuore nell'aspettarti  invano sapendo che non solo non giungerai nella mia vita ma non sei nemmeno previsto nel mio destino !
L'attesa mi sta logorando e l'illusione si nutre di me ! Sento la tua mancanza nel mio percorso di vita e continuo a sperare che tu abbia  solo preso una strada più lunga per arrivare a me !
Raggiungimi amor...

"Maybe one day we'll finally learn to love ourselves, and stop apologizing for the things that  make us who we are." - R.M. Drake

I make enough mistakes
My immaturity and bad habits get in the way
I don't know how I'll explain myself
She's the only one that hears the things I say
Someone that I trust
How did I fail to give you all the love you deserve
When you're the only thing thats worth
What life is worth
I don't mind if you hate me
Because baby if I were you, I would hate me to

While you are asleep..
I am busy encrypting our tales on the moon...through the clouds,
with colourless ink of my eyes...
Crescent after crescent,through its every phase.
So that one day when it shall be a full moon day and you shall raise your head to adore the beauty of the glow...you would realise that it's not just the full moon but an entire script of our love...

I've spent
The last month
Wavering
Between guilt
And justification
For the life of me
I cannot decide
Which is the truth
Or how I should feel
     Maybe it is time
     To let myself
     Off of the hook
     And negotiate
     A compromise
     That will set
     Both my mind
     And his spirit free.

You Still Can

No-one said it would be easy,
Please don’t hide away completely,
Let your voice be heard,
Teach those that need to learn.

If you allow yourself to run,
You will be forgotten,
Amongst those that ran.

They never found their strength,
But you still can.

'dear old friend'

today i received a letter from an old friend.
a letter that i once wrote and she once read.
i told myself this is what suprises look like now a days.
reminders from a time capsule buried in the memory
of the days spent loving and living so passionately
that the death had to come faster than anticipated.
treacherous as she calls me to be for inking my feelings;
making a piece of paper so worthwhile to be protected,
she says she has the courage to fight me but never
tear my words into irreconcilable pieces.
i laugh at the irony of how we were able to survive
the waves of nostalgia flooding our feet.
but look at us now, we do not recognize
if the reason behind our sudden w...
