It was night. Ten minutes till midnight. Ten minutes can change the world. After all, every minute counts (doesn't it?). It was a cloudless night. I headed to my balcony to look at the moon. The worst part about night is that it is silent. Never thought that silence is something that one can hate.
I took a deep breath and headed back to my tent. Well, there is no "my" tent here. Cries and moans of mothers and daughters were common in the refugee camp. Some are polluted while the others disappear like a chameleon. Do they disappear or are they there but not there? I wouldn't know. I never attended school after the eighth grade. I knew someone who knew the answer.
I lost Al...
How should I find that solace
Of a love that's so at ease
Of someone who organically
Melts those words to breeze.
Does that love even exist
Or is it just my wishful fancy
Unreal and blatantly untrue
Out of the books of Nancy.
On days I feel way too much
On some others way so little
Or it's just me who is alas
All but oh so brittle.
I wish there could be some one
Who had lived this life before
And told me what mistakes I made
And what next were in store.
The Lost Compass
Going through my old things I found it hiding in the corner, long forgotten as if it never existed, covered in dust witnessing the passage of time.
I realized we don't forget things or people, we just avoid remembering them. We tuck it in the back of our head but when we see them again every small detail, every touch, conversation, and memory come back in crashing waves.
I hold my compass and ran my finger over my name engraved on it like I have done a thousand time before.
I see you sitting at a corner in a small cafe on an unknown street. You seem to be at home while I was miles away from mine. I remember exactly what drew me to you. Your crooked nose, ...
No matter how many times I tell you how much I love you, it will never be enough to tell you. The love I feel for you is infinite. I feel the sky is you.
That my life would not be easier life without you. When I see you I see memories..... Beautifull memories
You are special to me n close to my heart,
And sometimes I feel that my heart will explode because of my love for you.
You are growing very fast and I would like to stop time.
In your one n half years you are a beautiful CHILD inside and out. You make me smile when I don't feel anything,
I thank God for having you in my life. My BETU , I love you more than you can imagine.
Today and always,
WRITING TOPIC | TAKE OVER TOMORROW
lettrists, let's get real.
Tomorrow is the day you'll clean your room, do the dishes, study for that Algebra test, work on your history project, start exercising, and finally memorize the entire theme song to Dawson's Creek... ok maybe not the last one. But "tomorrow" is that day.
Well let's make it TODAY.
Write about all the things you've been putting off till "tomorrow" and tell us why you'll get them done today. Tag your letter "TOT."
Because tomorrow is just another excuse not to make today the day!

As I was cutting onions to cook something for myself, tears rolled down my cheeks. I mean because of the onions. Like an idiot, I wiped my tears with my dirty hands and irritated my eyes further. I actually never felt any sort of pain when I found my eyes filled with tears expect for the slight burning sensation in my eyes.
And then.. this thought struck my mind. When I am sad and I begin to weep, the same tears come out of my eyes. The emerge from the same place. Why do I feel the pain in my chest and my head? I was thinking..... whenever I feel like crying, I should start cutting onions. So, I can let the tears freely roll down my cheeks.
Sometimes.. I get such crazy ideas.

W.W.J.D ( What would Jesus Do) This is the hardest test we face on a daily basis. For me at times it's difficult and I don't always pass the test but God knows many times although i don't reason with him I choose his way. It's ok to sometimes do things in his grace even when you don't want to. All I pray is to grow more and more each day towards his way. Have a blessed day. 😀
लिखना तो मैं तुम्हारी बेवफ़ाई के नाम एक ख़त भी चाहता था ,
क्या कटती हैं तुम्हारी रातें भी ठीक वैसे ही जैसे मेरी कटती हैं ,
क्या हर करवट पर तुम्हारे हाथ भी अपने बग़ल में किसी को ढूँढते हैं?
बस यही जानना चाहता था।
ये जो क़िस्से मैंने तुम्हें बताए है और कुछ सवाल जो तुमसे किए हैं,
ये ना समझना कि मेरे सही या ग़लत होने पर तुम्हारा मत चाहता था ।

I thought I could save this civilization
Among the stars
For hundreds of thousands of years
I’ve been shuttling through galaxies,
Visiting different planets
All those hold lives on them
Like this blue sphere
I was there when their very first mother gave birth to her next generation
I was there when they lit up their very first fire
I was there when their very first King put a crown on his head
I was there when they first knew they live on a globe
I saw together they moved the mountains
I saw they struggled on their oceans to link continents
I saw both their destitution and prosperities
I saw the dusk
'Everything that's left is screaming silence now'
Have you ever tried listening to that noise in your head when your silent?
Those thoughts ringing again and again loud... Like it's never gonna stop.
And it hurts...hell a lot.
I just wonder how people say ...'just let it go'.
If only I learnt the art of letting go....
if only I could move despite this noise in my head.
Atleast I'd get a good night's sleep...
I'm not asking for anything more.
Alright anyways let me try to get some sleep now.
I caused you to feel bad, I stopped myself..
I just felt good to talk to you, I thought you too do..
Remember last year summer vacations, you would call me some days and ask me what's up??
Now it only seems one thing -
" you say," if you want to, you can call me "
Maybe now you don't even feel it.
I thought I am your friend by choice, not due to my need..
But see what do these actions suggest????
I'm helpless. I know you're available at whatsapp you're online right now.. Still, nobody hinders me to talk to you..
Your words do.
Your behavior which makes me feel I bother you, do.
See, it's the biggest sacrifice I again, make for you...
For your friendship, I stop myself from both...
