With impish delight ...
Her graceful presence ... tempting ...
At the crossroads to meet,
One who had left
In those moments of lust.
Still I stand
Waving to the waters
Of that luminous stream,
Waiting for it's approval
To bring him back.
I stand still,
At the chaos of life,
Amidst Schattered departure of love;
Waiting for trust to win,
Hope to survive.
-Still I stand\\ Arunima.
I like to feel
Every shard of a broken relationship
Running my fingers over it
Caressing its edges
Letting the blunt ends prick my wounds
Making them bleed
Over and over
Till the blood has all run out
Till I'm familiarised
With every single piece
Its cuts and crease.
I like to analyse
Every hidden corner of a broken relationship
Every single perspective
List down the possibilities
Break 'em down
Analyse them further
Till the throbbing ache in my head
Has become routine
Till there is nothing new
That I haven't already seen.
Only then, do I stand up
Burn the pieces
All etched in memory
And walk away.
Her response makes him spray water from his nostrils. He accepts napkins from the waitress while pinching Lisa's love handle. Ralph spares her life because he fears missing her too much.
His story, my voice.
His book, my pages.
His name, my recognition.
- the nomad pen.
Captivating soul ...
Such beauty, such grace, passion ...
If only, stirring ...
My heart was chained up with your love,
And the best part is,
I don't wanna escape.
I wanna stay caged forever.
我 是 你 的.
You've made me so happy in some little time.
You've already given me such good memories.
Dancing around the room while I'm falling over myself, literally and metaphorically.
Late night conversations where we're truly who we are, no walls, no pretenses, nothing fake.
Swimming in the creek neck deep, trying not to laugh so much because my sides hurt.
You can't even begin to comprehend.
You are amazing.
You don't even see it.
Your laugh makes me smile so much. It's so pure and happy.
Your voice quite literally sends shivers down my spine. It's an unexplainable feeling.
Your passion lights up the room. When you talk about something you love, your heart pours through you....
I'm on a light diet, I eat by sunlight, I eat by moonlight, and sometimes I eat by refrigerator light .
El día en el que decidiste tratar a tu hija como basura fue el mismo día en el que dejaste de tener una.
Every night she fought with the demons and laid them to rest,
Every night she conquered her sorrows,
Every night she believed she is the happiest of all,
Every night she made her doleful heart asleep,
And you call her unbroken.
Yes she is Unbroken with all her pieces bend Together
Boys like me who were told "crying is for girls" when young have a hard time chanelling feelings when they finally grow up.
Feelings,as they told me,were unmanly-they said I should be cold as ice.
But ice eventually breaks,and so did I.
Forget what you were told.
Boys cry and feel,they break down.
No one should be ashamed of feeling...
Emotions makes us humans-flawed?Yes..
But no one is perfect.
My feelings are either too much or too little.
It's not for you people to decide how much I feel,
I'll mourn for an eternity or just a day,
That's for me to decide.
I was a beautiful chaos
You were as serene as water.
Sometimes I wonder,
How did our hearts collide?
I haven't been inspired in a while. Rather, I haven't been moved to words, shall we say. Lately my inspiration has come in bouts of silence. I've spent a lot of time by the water. Watching it move, uncontrolled and wild, yet with a rhythmic calm that makes me want to cry. I could sit and watch for hours, listening to the gulls and the waves harmonize with one another. Not a care in the world. It's the only time I can shut my mind off. Calm my thoughts. Bypass the words.
There's a small shell stuck in my sandal, right in the middle of my foot where I can't reach it with a sweeping finger. My shorts are wet where I sat down on the sand. The guy up ahead looks like someone I'd be friends with;...
