I am scared
How much ever i try to convince myself
However badly i try to quit
Thoughts keep rolling

With each passing day
I get more attached
Bits of me keep dissolving into you
The more i let in
The more i fear

What if i everything is a mirage
What if the glass cracks
What if it all falls apart
Will my broken self be brave enough
To gather up the pieces
And smile through the pain?

Will i be able to keep the promise
I made to myself
That I will let go of you
When the day comes ?
My resolve weakens
The closer we get

Its not about losing faith
Its not about possession
Its about sharing what is me
What has become my life
My cherished memories
Smudging them up

one day,
Those will fade
...

And just when you thought

You are being constantly misunderstood
When all you could be is second fiddle
When you felt love is melodrama
And no one actually belongs
With each other

You meet this person
Who is a best friend
A confidant
A lover
A pillar of strength
And everything in one

Who teases you
Who teaches you real laugher
Becomes the purpose
And a constant motivation

Who understands you
Better than yourself
Who does things for you
Even before you think
Who cares more than self

Who pushes away your wildest fears
And shows you what trust is
With whom nothing is awkward
Who shows you “Love does exist and being loved is beautiful “

With whom you find solace
Comfort,Peace and h...

Self reflection
Nah, not my strongest suit
Like a pandora box
Boxed up contradictions
Merciless hypocrite
Hopelessly paradox
Multifold enigma
Stark contrast set in white

Hyper yet lazy
Lovable yet detached
Greatly hopeful yet negatively charged

Dreamer of all things beauty
Color chaser romancing darkness
Moon lover waiting for sun
Smile catcher in pursuit of happiness!

Love can never be coaxed
It has to happen by itself
Only then it lasts forever
And it is true

It needs no manipulation
It has no conditions
It flows on and blends
Deep into us
That even we forget the difference between two

No - it doesn’t look for
Reciprocation
It knows no resentment
It spawns only beautiful memories it know only to love and never hate

It doesn’t get attached
With strings and to the hip
But dwells in one another
That even miles apart
The connection is felt

Missing happens
But not possession
Learning happens
But not domination
Growing together happens
Not jealousy

It is such a strong emotion
That, even on separation
It wishes well

Do not shy away from showering ...

Tears fall when nothing could convey what i feel
As a silent language
Between two souls
Binding us tighter
In a mirage

Love knows no loss or gain
An abyss in itself
One can be lost in love
But never in loss for it

Grows in leaps with each passing moment
Its the same for you
As it cares for me

Beyond borders and boundaries
Breaking all barriers
Together or far apart
Made no difference

Lines or limits
Made no sense
Rules or right
Dint matter

Here we are
With what we had
Speaking the language of soul
Happy tears ain’t they.

Life throws in a lot on our way
And times we may sway
A pole to catch
Need someone to reach

People are many
Personalities are plenty
With dreams to catch
Minds to match

A faltering word
As sharp as sword
May push us to brink
Weaken us in a wink

There are promises to keep
No time to weep
Perfection is in the mind
Let good times rewind

What we seek
Shall we find
Pleasure shall unwind
Maybe not how we want
Yet might be all we want

But rules are to live
And so shall we believe
Whats ours will stay
Love will find its way.

I let the pain seep through
Blistering fire scalds my core
Sweltering heat scoops me up
Tears don’t fall yet.

I knew this was to come
And yet i do not regret
For memories mean a million
A lifetimes worth lived.

I learn to let go
Only did my heart possess
My love will heal this and more
I am grateful as i am complete.

In time and some
The dark rupture will descend
Welcomed bare and open
All’s paean of proclivity
A tribute to what words can’t define.

Waves ripple to moonlight
Trying to hold on
To reach its abode
And blaze in ecstasy.

Memories we create need no form
They are nailed in deep
Flashes peeping through the day
Your smell on me says it all.

I see you musing over work
Deeply engrossed
And i fall for you.

I try to climb out the bed
You catch my hand, eyes closed
Half asleep,
Still wanting me next to you
I fall again.

You see us in the mirror
Holding my waist
Happy and gay
First ever time i see myself like that
A new me.. with you
Falling deep.

First ever time
You were sitting far
Just as you turned our eyes locked
I fell then
Not knowing that  I am.

You shush me with me your hand
And softly place your lips on mine

Love

The basis of our existence
Changes a lot of things,
For us and others.
It can break us down to the last fragment
And yet,
Give us the strength to pick up
Every tiny piece of us
To stand tall again.

It can blow as a mighty storm
And yet,
Be the calm that follows.
A gentle caress,
To show it cares.

It is an enigma in itself.
It can make or break us.
It can torment,Fantasize,
Create a magic world,
Where in, the pain becomes a pleasure.

Like a whirpool, it can suck us right in
And yet,
No one wishes to escape its pull.
For, A life without love, is a life not lived.

Knowing it, we all fall in love.
As,
It exists in many forms and shapes.
It teaches us what ...

Along the walks of life
We come across many
At cross roads
At intersections
At coincidences
At contradictions
Along side.

Sometimes we click
Find companionship
Find love
Find understanding
Find friendship
Find a rhythm.

Yet another times they
Lend silent support
We work together
We hang out
Make memories
As partners in crime.

To some we open up
We bare ourselves
Find a soulmate.

Sometimes
we are a family.
Yet at times we are just two different people.

With everyone though,
We connect at some level.
Each passerby leaves a mark.
We belong with each other under strangest circumstance.

This is what keeps us alive
Make us believe, hope
In luck, fate, destiny
And ultimately in life.

To some,
Self respect holds a big part in their value system.

To them,
It is not overt signs of deference but an implicit sentiment.

Do not take “Respect” for granted .. it might mean “Life” for few.

Keep me with you as long as it takes”

Who spoke about seeing my

Who spokes volumes about getting engaged.. cooking together .. having a daughter.

Every now and then
My mind plays tricks on me
I find myself traversing a dark alley
Seeking the light beyond

Imagination runs wild
I see shimmer and shine
Buttteflies flutter past
Painting colours on canvas

Blood gushes through my veins
Redding the pale of my cheeks
Hope strikes a hand
Every time It is you.

Is it possible to love a person over and again ?
Through everything and remain the same throughout?
Yet again
The sun sets behind a peak
Leaving an eerie glow behind.

I feel the scent of you
I hear you whisper my name
Floods traverse the valley
Filling every crack and scar.

I look in your eyes and see
A vast ocean with treasures beyond
Hidden  in its depths is calm

It is strange what I feel
Even more is why?
It is painful
Yet the heart seeks more.

Like an unsurmountable grain to an ant
Challenging boulders block my way
Yet the heart desires
To break them all.

Miles to travel
Seas to cross
Filed with sense of loss
Over something that never was.

Love is never about possession ain't it ?
More about taking chances
And letting it all go..
For even scarier than getting hurt,
Is when you don't fall at all.

Kiss a lot of frogs to your prince
Is what they say.
Right now it's distant and far away
One day it will be my bay.

For love falters at times
And mine is a simple wish
A day when everything will be alright
And we will be together.

I am a stranger to myself.

Like sea and salt,
You are entwined in me.

I have dreams
Of you and me together
Making a home.
I replay it every day,
Waiting for you to come,

That moment
Of unexpected love,
A simple gesture,
Makes me forget the world .
And the pain of waiting washes away.

Will you come and ease the pain?
Will you cover me with your embrance?
Will you come home ? to me ?

It may happen,
Or may remain a dream.
I will not waste my time worrying.
What if i had never met you in this life?
Now i have the pleasure of dreaming about you.

With that,
I will continue living with you in my every breath.
I will continue to carry you in my every thought.

When dark clouds of pain looms,
When heart shudders like thunder,
When ego casts its shadow in lightning,
Tears veil up as rain,
And drops fall down as we cry.

In profound moments of deep silence,
That rain offers to everyone,
A little sadness comes alongside.

As the falling pearls hit the earth,
A lovely fragrance fills us,
Enveloping us in a serene mood
And a little sunshine follows through.

Every moment is an experience
It is the nature.
My heart, Why do you shy away from this?

Savor it and see the sunshine !

Something that has not come to my lips,
Just peeks through my eyes.
It teases me .. sometimes you.

Sometimes
It seeks few words,
It wraps around a voice,
And tries to kiss my lips.

Sometimes
It remains a feeling.
Like a sweet fragrance floating in the air.
A fragrance that indulges you and me.


Sometimes
It can be still.
Like the calmness of deep blue ocean.
Where everything inside us feels alive.

Nothing is hidden in this world.
Except this one.
A secret within the depths of me.
Revealed on;y to you.

Cut down on negativity :

1. Stop Complaining:
   
   When we focus on the bad things we have,
   When we focus on whining about the situations we are in,
  No good is going to come out of it.
  No one is going to like to hear us complain for long.

Stop wallowing in self pity and work on self betterment.

2. Worry:

  Worrying about the past is not going to change what has happened.
  Worrying about now is not going to help- Rather do what is necessary.
  Worrying about the future is worst form of self negativity.

Do what is required of you such that you need not worry ever.

3. Self doubt:
   
  Doubting yourself is the worst punishment you can give to your body, mind ...

Today,
I have decided

To "Let go" of
The constant fear.
The nagging.
The uncertainty.

To "Face"
The reality.
The longing.
The fears.

To " Conquer"
The inner demons.
The mind tricks.
The distractions.

To  " Embrace"
The past.
The mistakes.
The guilt.

To "Focus" on
"Me"
My strengths.
My future.

To "Utilize"
The time.

To "Accept"
The wait.

To "Develop"
PATIENCE.

Everyone passes through a phase in life,
Where everything seems to fail,
Where we make bad judgments,
Where we are beaten up ,
Where we feel alone.

The miracle is in accepting the flaws and working for betterment.
The miracle is in hoping and believing.
The miracle is in willingness...

24 hours in a day,
Is what everyone has got.

Some choose to live their dreams,
Whilst others dream their lives.

It is our choice how we spend each hour.
What we make out of it is up to us.

We are social being none the less ,
We are bound by our choices, not mistakes.

Live like a Roman when in Rome ,
Is for those who take it in the literal sense.
We are answerable to laws- laws of nature and laws of human.
As long as we have them covered, nothing matters
We are responsible for our actions not others' opinions.

Our life is so delicate that,
We are all just a heart break away .
It  can topple us over.
It can change everything we have ever - got and built.

Any day can be our day
To places we can go away.

All we need is
The breath of life
A brain so wise.

We need to push ahead
Through the boulders and tread.
We should keep the inner fire burning
With the urge to achieve churning.

We define ourselves
We complete ourselves.
Seldom we need acceptance
Of family and friends.

We have to prove
Only to our inner selves.
We are our own sculptor and master
Our own slave and judge.
Our conscience is the key
To contentment and peace.

The path will not be easy
The road may not be rosy.
We may lurch
We may skid
We have to steady ourselves and keep moving.

No road is easy if it is worth the travel.

Our life can be a book
With a Story that is often beyond our control
All we need to do is sit back and breeze through it
The pages can be plenty or few
Can be old or new.

Sometimes it can be a thriller
And we wish it was thinner
Or It can be a fantasy
And we wish it was fuller .

Sometimes it can be real creep
And make us weep.
For days might pass on to months and years.
Or it can be colorful and magical
With every minute so whimsical.

It can be an emotional roller coaster
We acquiesce and succumb
With each beckoning
Albeit we run, filled with trepidation.

Nah, we cannot skip chapters
We cannot jump into conclusions
So the least we can do..
Is enjoy living each p...

On a journey toward nothing
I feel alone and lost
Miserable and imbecilic.

Purposelessly and aimlessly
I wander
Searching for my lost soul.

I do not know anymore
Will i rediscover myself ?

Do my dreams matter?
They seem distant and unreal
Unworthy and non existent.

Anything and everthing
That ever mattered
Have lost their charm and appeal.

Why did i embark on this path
Waging a war
Within myself and everything outside ?

No further can i go
I have no energy to fight
I am tired and sick of it all.

The uncertainty
One of the many mysteries of life.

Who is she ?

Her take at " Love" means
Long romantic nights,
Cute cuddles,
Deep kisses,
Moonlight walks,
Miss you messages,
Little surprises,
Underpin hugs,
Meaningful glances,
Thoughtful acts,
Stars and fairy tales,
Lurch in the heart,
Skipping a beat,
Butterflies in stomach,
Tug of war in bed,
Pillow fights,
Naughty smirks,
Smoldering passion,
Brutal honesty,
Heightened respect,
Everlasting happiness.
All of it and more.
She wants someone who listens, understands ,
Makes her laugh and tingle at the same time.
Deals with her madness and moods.
Sees rainbows when she's a rebel.

It dawned bright.
Surprising.
Considering the might storm day before.
It is one of those wild winters this year.
And most days were dull and grey.

The light poured in.
He woke up exhilarated.
Warmth spread inside and outside.
He moved the curtains and watched.

Flecks of snow flew everywhere.
As a cardinal whipped its wings and hit a branch.
A new day had arrived.
He went up and about his drill.
He liked routine, the constancy, the reward.

He is a simple man, with less needs and contented heart.
Every day intrigued him.
He looked in the mirror and decided.
It was time to change his...

Nothing says "Home" like your own private space.

No one to muddle or interrupt.
Just you and your thoughts.
And that place my baby, is called Writers abode.

Or stripping all walls and breaking the boundaries. .

Is she just a pretty damsel ?
Vibrant and beautiful.. mesmerising and mysterious
Cascade of hair like ripples in water
Falling in waves and caressing her shoulders
Willowy frame and sparkly skin
Made heads turn as she breezed past
Is there more to her than enticement ?

Is she a lonely wanderer in search of a beacon ?
Who dreams of castles in sand
And waits for her Prince charming
