I have had my heart
ripped out of my chest
a few disastrous times.
It took all I had to put
myself back together.
Now I see the role I
played in my demise,
and I’m relieved that
I fared the weather.
It’s interesting what
you see when you look
through a different lens.
I’m conscious of this now;
as on it my life depends.
Rose no more
As gentle a rose sweet floral smell of the flower water drips slowly drop by drop as the sun brings life to a living plant, white like the color of innocence attractive to the bee's comfort to the soul as the person grieved in and around the casket of the deceased. Perfumed to cover the aroma of the embalming fluid like Frankincense and the anointing of the body like myrrh.

People say ‘True Love Never Dies’.
However, Love is being
murdered in the name of Colour, Gender, Caste and Dowry!

Best friends to lovers
Lovers turned into husband and wife
Perfect status updates highlight our happiness
I can’t help but wonder if they all know how deep your love for me truly runs
Deeper than the black and white photos
Past the endless display of sumptuous food
Down deep through the darkest parts of my being
You loved me, even when I tasted like depression and heartache
For that, I will walk through the fire
Because I know we burn brighter together
Missing Mumbai more than ever! The city sets your soul free! The city that makes you feel home! The days are as busy as the nights are quiet! Life here is fast, always running to catch a train, and even a fourth seat makes it worth it! There isn't a problem that won't sort itself out while you enjoy the view at Marines! The ice gola by the beach, with khatti kairi, and a park full of couples! From khaugalli to 7 star hotels, variety of options to choose from, yet the evening tea and vada pav with a bunch of friends makes the heart content! The city doesn't sleep, dance your night away, or watch the waves crash, and ofcourse long drives at night followed by idli at 4am! The city where dreams a...

Ay querido mundo de las letras, que muchos días han pasado sin escribirte como páginas en blanco. La vida es un libro, y en muchas ocasiones no somos los autores de dichas páginas e historias. Es la realidad. No controlamos nuestra vida, ni tan siquiera un día. Y es así cuando a veces se nos escapan hasta los pensamientos. Pero, es solo una parte de ella. No es toda la realidad ni la alcanza.
No te preocupes. Yo estoy bien y pronto te contaré. Te compartiré estractos de mi libro, aquellos que puedo escribir y el corazón me dicta. Pronto me pondré en sintonía directa y a pura conciencia con el papel, la tinta, el espacio, la sensibilidad, el corazón y aquellos que con aquello compartan sus hi...
You have to kindle
The fire that you started
Or she'll dwindle, die.

I found dew of hope
Dripping from daisies I so
Lovingly tend to.

When they cannot speak
Be the voice of a voiceless
Show the world their worth.

You make today better
As I meander
Down the red carpet of life
I'm lucky to know
That you'll always wait for me
Arms open, my biggest fan.

Fresh amaryllis out of season is the passerby’s fortune
An ounce of cure for the equanimity with which he navigates
It’s funny we get used to
feeling bad, but we also get
used to feeling good. We
should try it sometimes!
Wow. It’s been about 4 years since I accessed this app.
SO MUCH HAS CHANGED!
I had a baby !
I got engaged !
I moved into my first apartment!
I’ve missed y’all so very much <3
It’s okay for me
to ask for what
I want and then
it’s equally okay
for me to accept
Por favor, nunca me abandone,
Seria solitária sem você
Um recado aos mais corajosos:
A aqueles que choram todos os
Dias silenciosamente em seus quartos
Um recado gostaria de proferir:
São os mais fortes
Em meio aos mortais
São os mais corajosos
Dentre os humanos
Gostando ou não
As coisas se tornam mais suportáveis
Gostando ou não
O silêncio torna tudo mais insuportável
Coragem aos calados
Que sofrem toda noite em seus quartos
Esperando poder tirar eles mesmos
A dor que eles suportam carregar
I feel like there is a force that is trying to take me out
Am I going the wrong route
Taking things into my own hands
Like the man above won't provide life's demands
Today was a very sad day for me
I had to put my 8 month old puppy to sleep
I sit and wonder if that decision was right
Was he suffering too much
Or would he have recovered the very next night
As his last breaths were taken
I wonder if I made a terrible mistake
Mischief was once a bright light in my often dark world
Now memories of him all in my head
Thoughts of what if, should of, would of, could of
My heart yearns for the things he used to do that got on my nerves
What I would do to have him jumping all over my head
