WRITING PROMPT
Love


We’ve all been blinded by the blanket of emotions that comes from falling down the precipice of union into love. While we only have one word for it, the ancient Greeks in their pursuit of wisdom and self-understanding, found seven different varieties of love that we all experience at some point:

EROS (EROTIC LOVE)
MANIA (OBSESSIVE LOVE)
STORGE (FAMILIAR LOVE)
LUDUS (PLAYFUL LOVE)
PRAGMA (ENDURING LOVE)
PHILAUTIA (SELF LOVE)
PHILIA (AFFECTIONATE LOVE)
AGAPE (SELFLESS LOVE)

Choose one as your topic and use it as the title of your poem or short story.

Tag your letter, "love".

The music was exciting, the weather bright. They were dancing as the music swept them from side to side. All eyes were on them. The stars of this evening.

When the song ended they sat down. He wondered if this was the right time to tell Adelaide that he only had a year to live. Maybe even only a couple of months. Jake really loved this girl and what nothing more than to be with her. But he had cancer and as much as he went to treatments, he wasn't getting better.

He had to tell her. He had to let her know the truth but how?

How was he going to break it to her that the one person that was bringing light into her life was about to leave as well?

Adelaide had just lost her parents ...

Sometimes you need some gloom and doom
Otherwise the sun wouldn’t burn so bright and the roses smell so sweet

Pretty Shoes

Her eyes have seen too much
And the truth is too much to bear.
Her voice speaks out loud
But no ears can't seem to listen to what she's not saying.
Her pretty little shoes tried to walk away from the violence that stripped away her innocence,
Knowing she will never walk the same way again.
She then tries to silence the truth with lies and childish stories
And ultimately believe it until it no longer haunts her.

Appearance is a powerful tool. And the biggest lie you can tell someone. I always used to think that a lie could be seen in someone’s eyes when told. That the truth would float up to the surface, visible like an oil stain on water. But it does not. Truths are like separated droplets in a sea. Unseen, submerged, dissolved. We only see the sea. Appearance is a powerful tool.

I don’t like the taste of coffee. But I drink it anyway because I feel like I need it. Sometimes. We need to move on fuelled by whatever floats our boats. As long as we keep pushing forward. Go, go. Figure it out. Figure it out. But don’t stop moving. I don’t like the taste of coffee because it’s bitter. It even sounds b...

Not everything can be poetry,
Not every word can have meaning,
Sometimes the deeper implications are lost,
Trying to satisfy the thirst for curiosity,
Sometimes the world just doesn't spin anymore,
Around the Sun it's supposed to circle,
You can get a candy you've always wanted,
Only to be snatched away before you take a bite,
The hopes tend to get raised,
When the omens seem to concur,
Only to be left disappointed,
When things go wrong,
Not that it was supposed to be right,
But you're mind made you wish it were,
If happiness is not the end,
Why take all means to get there,
If there's a better afterlife,
Why struggles through this hell,
What are you rat racing for,
When one end leads to anot...

Hello world.
Since one of my favourite introverts, Avicii, died, I spent a lot of time thinking about this world ruled by extroverts. And how I actually think it's a bit unfair. Everytime someone is a bit shy or quiet, basically everyone around that person feel the need to ask why. People should try to understand that not everyone want to be the centre of the attention. Not everyone feel the need to be loud and assertive. It is neccessary sometimes, but not all the time and it doesn't come natural to all of us. I've watched Avicii's documentary and I actually felt chills when he mentioned Carl Jung and his theory of introverts and extroverts and when he said hapilly that he found himself to b...

Where Are The Summers Of Our Yesterdays,

Where Has Time Gone To Hide Them Away,

I Try Remembering Them All So Clearly,

As My Memory's Quickly Slipping Away,

I Don't Have Much Hope For Tomorrow, 

As I Can Hardly Remember Today,

My Past Holds All My Favorite Memories,

As I Try Holding On, To All I Loved Yesterday.

Dreams.....

Dreams never talked to me again,
After that awful day when,
My fears forced me to put
All my dreams to sleep.

They were looking at me,
Confused at my betrayal,
Hopeful for a miracle,
That never happened.

But now, when I am fighting
The fears, the demons deep inside
I want support and strength
But will my dreams rise from their sleep?
Will they help me again?
Will they guide me again?

Mirror mirror on the wall
Who is the prettiest of us all?
Painted lips and painted eyes
Do you see me beneath the lies?
I starve I cry I hate what you show
But I hide it again and don't let them know.

Am I skinny! Am I tall?
Am I pretty enough to make you fall
In love with a girl
Who loved to write
Once, but now is a broken kite
Strings attached now fallen apart
This girl is dying with shards
In her heart.

Mirror mirror in all your eyes
You are killing the girl as time flies by
Every moment beneath the layers
She loses herself, her soul lain bare
Mirror mirror she is fading away
Her edges frayed in shades of gray.
Tired smiles show whiter teeth but
Mirror, do you see her corpse beneath?

You that speaks nice but has a double edged sword

She was nervous and he was away. A million thoughts were running in her mind. She was doubtful if she was doing  the right thing. She was highly unsure if he really would be right for her. She wasn't marrying him by choice, it was family pressure. She didn't have any big wishes in that moment, just a loving life partner who'd make her happy. But it wasnt going to happen and she didn't want to live..

He didn't know what was wrong but he was trying to read her eyes. She didn't return his gaze, afraid that he might know. He took her hand and began to gently dance, looking deep into her eyes, she felt like a book he was lovingly devouring.

She stood speechless, yet ecstatic. Tears rolled down her cheeks. She was walking on air. Softly she sai...

I need to lay my head 
On your naked chest
Accompanied by the comfort 
Of your blue sheets

I’m sorry for the stains 
I left there
Between the plaid print covers

I wear your clothes now
And wait for your return
Since I can’t feel your touch,
I resort to clothing that once belonged to you
To provide warmth 
And protect my skin from the cold air

Until your return
I will not feel safe 
Because in times of grave danger and distress
Your arms are where I run to 
A sanctuary of goodness and relief to me
And you are my favorite place to hide

With each joke I hear I find myself 
Pausing and looking to my side 
To hear your reaction
And see your wholesome smile
But then the sting of ...

When you ask me to forgive you, someday in life, I simply tell you that I'm not angry. Because I'm not. I'm not upset, I'm plagued. Plagued by the absence of you, shattered by this present, this unforseen present dumped on me. I'm not angry at you, I'm lost, lost of any purpose, deprived of any wish, abandoned. I sulk through the days, cry through the nights, not because I'm angry, but because I was pushed out, with no trace of regret, my identity taken away from me. I cry, because I know I'm not missed, not because I'm angry. So, don't ask me for forgiveness dear you, it's not your fault. It's love's fault, for it decided to reveal it's true natur...

I can give you my heart
with three conditions
First,
Don't break it
Second,
Don't throw it
Third,
Don't pass it,

If you want to do something
then please keep it to yourself
for a few days and then see
The magic of the heart
Your heart will say

I will be going with this heart
and never leaving this heart
because this heart is

this is the heart of my life.

Yes, you made me feel

I got to know my worth,
Beneath all the lies and the truth;
Between what's chosen and what's not.
My fate is always meant to be 
stuck with something not worth.

Yes, I do have options,
to leave or
to stay.
Can change my fate 
with a blink of an eye;
with choices that I make!

But still, I chose him
Be it,
storms;
cold;
fights;
breakups.
In all the highs and lows
I could see, to be 
with him the most.

Yes, you do ask me
to choose better;
to leave you for best;
to leave because you care.
But I stay,
not because 
you offer me to leave;
Or it is hurting too much.
Because it is not up to the brim.

Our relationship has colours...

Dreams.....

Dreams never talked to me again,
After that awful day when,
My fears forced me to put
All my dreams to sleep.

They were looking at me,
Confused at my betrayal,
Hopeful for a miracle,
That never happened.

But now, when I am fighting
The fears, the demons deep inside
I want support and strength
But will my dreams rise from their sleep?
Will they help me again?
Will they guide me again?

            "About Heart"
I can give you my heart
with three conditions
First,
Don't break it
Second,
Don't throw it
Third,
Don't pass it,

If you want to do something
then please keep it to yourself
for a few days and then see
The magic of the heart
Your heart will say
"Wherever this heart will go
I will be going with this heart
and never leaving this heart
because this heart is
who made me  love and
this is the heart of my life.

-Chirayu!.

      Is leaking love
            Faster
                  Than any bandage
                       Can handle
                            At this rate
                                 There will be
                                        No love left
                 When you finally
      Come to your senses.               JD

bleeding out
yet you stand in my way of helping her
you laugh at her pain

Make your mark on the earth
Before you go,
So time will not erase the
Person that we know.

Fleeting life..soon forgotten,
The fireman, the soldier,
The doctor, the priest.

The obscure life with
No headlines,
Yet well lived with devotion
And self sacrifice....

The handprints with their
Unique patterns
Scream “ don’t forget me”.

I was here. I mattered.

Impressions.
It was a lousy afternoon. I was working all day long with my sister to paint our house. There were newspapers, paint brushes lying on the floor. Whole of the house was filled with smell of oil paints.
My twin sister was dizzy with the smell and wanted to go out for a while. But me being lazy as usual refused to even step out of the door. And so she left alone. Which I later realised was one of my worst decisions.
It was not long after that she left, that my neighbour came over for a cup of tea, without invitation. But being in India and being a girl as well it was my duty to look after the guest well as my parents and my sister were unavailable.
The moment I ente...

What You Drew

I need to lay my head 
On your naked chest
Accompanied by the comfort 
Of your blue sheets

I’m sorry for the stains 
I left there
Between the plaid print covers

I wear your clothes now
And wait for your return
Since I can’t feel your touch,
I resort to clothing that once belonged to you
To provide warmth 
And protect my skin from the cold air

Until your return
I will not feel safe 
Because in times of grave danger and distress
Your arms are where I run to 
A sanctuary of goodness and relief to me
And you are my favorite place to hide

With each joke I hear I find myself 
Pausing and looking to my side 
To hear your reaction
And see your wholesome smile
But then the sting of ...

Can I ever forgive you?
When you ask me to forgive you, someday in life, I simply tell you that I'm not angry. Because I'm not. I'm not upset, I'm plagued. Plagued by the absence of you, shattered by this present, this unforseen present dumped on me. I'm not angry at you, I'm lost, lost of any purpose, deprived of any wish, abandoned. I sulk through the days, cry through the nights, not because I'm angry, but because I was pushed out, with no trace of regret, my identity taken away from me. I cry, because I know I'm not missed, not because I'm angry. So, don't ask me for forgiveness dear you, it's not your fault. It's love's fault, for it decided to reveal it's true natur...

Maybe I wasn't the best thing that happened to you. Maybe someday, it would be easier to accept that.
Someday, when you come back to our city, would you feel the rush to come visit my place,once your heavenly abode?  In that moment, would you regret the decision you took, would you regret leaving? That day, when you find that nothing really changed here, would you know that neither did I? Would the roads leading you to my place, tell you my story, explain how I passed my days, in your absence? Would my terrace show you traces of my presence, as I looked upon the road, for time infinite, hoping that you would return until it eventually exhausted me? Would my house speak of my cries, of the ...

Every new 'Thing' in life, brings with it an excitement. You know that feeling in the stomach, when your heart is elated, all set for the new experience. That's when your mind stops reverting back , that's when it imagines a better future, makes plans and life seems so beautiful with no weary past.
It is only when the 'new experience' runs dry, when it all gets over, when the bubbles burst, that a realization strikes.
Someday, sitting on your favorite spot, living on your normal life, you come across a familiar name and a  known feeling gushes in. A memory of an old 'thing' you once owned, a thing that was your muse for years. It hits you, how the craving of the new washed away the exist...

Everything hurts
My head throbs
My heart shrinks
My chest heaves
My bones ache
My skin burns
My fingers crack
My knees buckle
My ankles pop
Everything hurts

My blood runs slow
My eyes look hollow
My body is stiff
Yet my hands shake
Water rises in my eyes
My body becomes
Only a shell
Everything hurts

I can't move
I'm stuck
Frozen
As time ticks on

Halted
In disbelief
That one thing
Could do this
To me
Everything hurts

Leave me
Broken
Hollow
Empty
Feeling alone
Lost and
Unwanted
Everything hurts

How much
Power
Can be held
By one
Thing
Everything hurts

Do you remember my name? And the fact that I loved to hear it in your voice. That occasionally when I called out to you, it was only so I could listen to you, say my name. That every time you called my name, I felt safe, I felt your assurance, I believed that you were around.
Are you around anymore? Will you not keep me safe? Will you not assure me that it's going to be alright, that whenever I would need you, you would lend me your hand?
Have you left already, moved on?

The subtle pain of being away from a part of you is so profound,
No amount of expressing, explains it
No amount of shedding tears, sheds it
No amount of distractions, keeps you away from it
But that is okay because there is a beauty in being connected to that part of you, this pain keeps you connected.
Such an ironic sorrow.

DEAR ME OF 2023
Five uears ago you didn't like to socialise. You didn't express your emotions. You didn't express your feelings. You had very few best friends and even fewer(1 or 2) whom you could really trust. So to whom would you have talked. Family? Yeah right! As if they didn't have a hundred problems of their own. You tried to atleast solve your emotional and mental problems on your own. Five years ago you thought that life is easier alone than with a family coz when you have a family expectations come along and non-fulfilment of those leads to frequent arguements. You thought the same about your love life and avoided any kind of committment and relationships in these past five years. I'...

A part of me would always be with him.

But we had reached, I think, the point of no return. A month before I didn't want to even consider it coming to an end...nobody ever does. Now I'm not saying I was overjoyed by the idea either, I still loved the very bones of him. But I was at peace with it. We had come to, if you like, our natural end.

There's no feeling like love. Everything in the world is sweet when you're in the midst of it - and I know, I know the feeling of ecstasy when you're experiencing all of your firsts with someone doesn't last forever and arguments happen and you have days where you just want a break. I also know that I am far from an expert on the subject. But I have a t...
