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 ...

Life isn’t just sunshine and roses
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...

she’s on the ground
bleeding out
yet you stand in my way of helping her
you laugh at her pain
her misery
but she still loves you
i don’t understand why
all i know is
i’m not going to break her heart like you intended too
i will keep her safe
and away from you
your hands

our hands
are too weak
you nail our feet to the ground

I been learning a lot
About life love people and myself
People come and go on your life.
I love being on my own but at the same time i love being with someone
What i don't like is people prentending the want to be without you for the wrong reasons
Telling what it is i like to Hear Just so the  
can  get What the want,
And then leave me behind, feeling such a fool for trusting them believing in Them.
It had toen stop actrating the wrong people in my life
I Need tot work on on that part of me
Because its Killing me slowly and i am losing hope in menkind

In a room of own,
In the haunted hollow pipe.
Was following him, through sounds
Once of sitar
Then 🥁 drums take place.
Lead to cold hymns,
Drop in a pond.
             Whirling wild wings of mountains.
             Final back to me, where I started !
             Hunting 🌟 star that,
             Hunting me again.
Some letters started dizzling !
No voice now echoing,
Top in skull-empty.
Then where's it came from?
Alwways rise in dark.

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

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?

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,

Can change my fate

with choices that I make!

But still, I chose him
Be it,

In all the highs and lows

Yes, you do ask me
to choose better;
to leave you for best;

But I stay,
not because

Or it is hurting too much.
Because it is not up to the brim.

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...

the sound of the dripping on the damp walls
from the beer bottle you threw at mother
she’s on the ground
bleeding out
yet you stand in my way of helping her
you laugh at her pain
her misery
but she still loves you
i don’t understand why
all i know is
i’m not going to break her heart like you intended too
i will keep her safe
and away from you
your hands
are too powerful
our hands
are too weak
you nail our feet to the ground
and order that we stand up.

I found depression in my mothers knuckles
And behind my fathers smile

Sometimes it hits you for no reason

And sometimes despite the sun
You can't find the light

But that’s alright.

These scars that you see,
Are mortal gifts,
They don't bother me at all,
         Will fade away with time,
         From my body and mind!

The ones that haunt me,
Are the ones you don't see,
Still raw, still sore,
        On my soul I brave,
        They'll accompany me to my grave!

She closed her eyes and breathed,
Its time you go,
Confusion clear in his eyes,
Sadness in hers,
But he knew if he stayed,
He would destroy her.

When I first saw you, I had never seen eyes that seemed so lonely.
I reached out to you and gave you my hand so boldly,
A man shaped by misery,
Shrouded in mystery,
Tucked behind a crowd and a smile,
Unravel his charm and he'll make it worth while.

Sometimes I question everything
Like why am I hated?
Why do I bother trying when all I do is annoy people?
Why have I lived this long when I shouldn't have?

I often think back to year 6 when I had the chance to end it all
Yet I didn't
What a shame

Since maybe if I had I could avoid being a nuisance a presence of disdain.
Or to the time in Turkey where I could have jumped of that building
I had so many opportunities yet I wasted it

I'm sorry
Sorry for being alive for so long
For not dying
I know you hate me
I hate me too

But don't worry my time will come and maybe then you will finally smile at me.

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...

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...

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...

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...

In my mind.

Tears following gravity
she's screaming at me
says I'm better of dead
that I deserve a bullet through my head.
everything I do I do wrong
she says I don't belong.
blade to my wrist
but holding on to a reason I still exist. 
she says I'm a piece of shit
and on life I have to quit.
to her I'm a joke
wanting me to choke.
she says I'm born a disappointment
that I steal all enjoyment.
she lives in my mind
and she's all but kind.

Somebody said you got a new friend.
Does she love you better than I can?
There is a big black sky over my town
I know where you at, I bet she's around
I know it is stupid but I just got to see it for myself.

I'm in the corner watching you kiss her
I'm right over here, why can't you see me?
I'm giving it my all, but I'm not the girl you're taking home
I keep dancing on my own
I'm just gonna dance all night
I'm all messed up I'm so out of line

So far away, but still so near
But you don't see me, standing here
I just came to say goodbye
