All way long
I carry the tired body
And a bitter soul
Dizzy eyes shut my vision
Voices amplified inside me
They were of memories
From worst to best
Reels of them swirled around me
Time wasn't racing
The soul was just gazing
Every piece of realistic drama
My Mind was healing
With Rollercoaster of feelings
Vibrant emotions spread like oceans
Once again I travelled back
Again & again I was watching myself... Every shade of mine
In an unknown universe of memories...
Memories fueled me
A slow smile lit my face
And I begin the journey
This time  with the passionate body
And a spiritual soul

Wading
Washed

Tideline

A Walk along the Shore

The granules remind me of the easiness I carried, and the waves remind me of my little fury and rage I holded all the time. Little things that matter more are seldom realized at the end if a day. The tidelines remembering me every now and then phase does change and bud a new hope Evey time. How I used to spent hours and hours just wading along the shores, reminiscing every moment of past. And how I used to let the waves wash every dirt of mine. Selfish I was, wasn't I? I used even the water to wash away my sins and started finding hopes even in the tides flowing. How the crest and tough of these waves depicte...

The prisoner of my own desires,
I live as I die everyday
Without you.
Draped in your memories.

So many memories...
So many hopes...
The memories outnumber the times... And reality has slowly been killing the hopes that were mine!

What was the point of it all?
Did you satisfy your curiosity,
Did you answer the questions you pondered?

जो पल कभी तुम्हारे साथ बिताए थे,
आज अकेले जी रहा हूं मैं,
जो प्यार किया था तुमसे कभी,
आज वही प्यार समेट रहा हूं मैं,
जो जिंदगी जी थी तुम्हारे साथ कभी,
आज वही जिंदगी छोड़ रहा हूं मैं।।

Words to be used
*WADING
* WASHED
* TIDELINE
* CREST
=========================
The crest reached the tideline to wash away the sandcastles and sand sculptures.
However, the little feet no longer were seen wading in the water on the beaches, no hands built castles and nobody sun bathed.
As the splashes in the amusement park were the newer ways to spend summer vacations.

You are everywhere,
In my words,
In my verses.
Like those beautiful
Golden leaves of autumn,
Scattered around—
Are your memories in my life
Woven in and out of me.

"If you could let the pain of the past go
Of your soul
None of this is in your control

If you could only let your guard down
If you could learn to trust me somehow
I swear, that I won't let you go
If you could only let go your doubts
If you could just believe in me now
I swear, that I won't let you go

I won’t let you go
I'll always be by your side."

*Song lyrics - I won't let you go by Switchfoot

Remembering how much Switchfoot's songs inspired me in the phases of my life. ❤

Evening glistened in the descent
catching the glittering half-light
that still flickered on the horizon
and called to mind all the memoirs
of the dying stars now peeking out
and dotting the indigo canopy
that spreads in all directions
while we lie on our backs and stare
searching for virgin constellations
and wondering whose name it bore
or why we never made more wishes
for fear the sky might fall
while we laughed at the absurdity
of cows and spoons clearing the moon
and I would give just about anything
for a few more nights like that
where you were so close to me
when we were so young and free
when there was nothing like living
when tomorrow didn't matter
just tonight and right now
just y...

canyon memories

Stand with me up on the narrow

cliffs and take my hand. Maybe we will fly as sparrows,

In endless skies and clouds and suns.

Maybe one day all this bleeding will be secede

And our memories not forlorn, not

Left to fade and erode like water shapes canyons.

I hardly remember much of you anymore...

I hardly slept last night, but when I did, I had a dream that sumned up how I have been feeling of late: I was floating in something like a huge bathtub or sink, with water going down slowly into the drain, until there was just a whirlpool swirling and swirling, picking up speed, faster and faster, except that in this dream-drain it never ended, never fully emptied, just kept going and going and going, pulling at anything and everything within its grasp, and there I was on the periphery of the swirl, fighting like madness to not be swallowed, but being pulled in all the same, over and again, like some never-ending battle-royale, unrelenting, could never relax or give up, like it had gone on f...

Like an apparition from the mists
You came into my life
That first February

And after weeks of fits and starts
We took shape and form
In fullness and glory

You called me your Dionysus,
Told me to make you my Maenad
I was, and I did

And for nine months you were My Completeness
All silhouettes with no regrets, melting into each other

But when the end came you said nothing
Couldn't be bothered, I guess
Just faded away
Gone, gone, gone

Simplesmente desapareceu
Sem pedir desculpas
Sem dizer adeus
E pelo que se vê, me esqueceu por completo

Mas eu? eu? eu?
Nunca esqueci
Nunca te esqueci
Nunca nos esqueci

“Thoughts” I guess

You don’t even care about me
I was just one more passing through
I know I was
Even though your mom adored me
You didn’t really want me there
Just one more
Just one more
No big deal
You’ve had them all before
But as much as I hate to admit it
You’re the name I check for in my story views
Every time I check my watch I check your time zone too
I still search for you sign when I read my horoscopes
And you don’t even think about me anymore
So why can’t I get you out of my head
You’ve moved on
And you’re still preoccupied
So why can’t I understand
You don’t mind where I’m going
Or what I’m doing
Or who I’m with
Because there’ll be more just like me
But better in ever...

I remember roads.
I remember afternoons
and boulevards turning dark.
I remember shoes.
Steps—their scratching sounds
on unsmoothed pavements;
hands holding and swinging while
nobody’s watching.
I remember city lights
moving like fireflies.
I remember the smell of cigarette smoke.
I remember muffled beats from
passing jeepneys.
I remember salt on fries,
and fries on sundae.
Yet, I can’t remember you.
Or, do I have something to remember,
or were you even there?

the wind blows...

but the leaves
have taught themselves
to let go.
As the wind loses
its strength
the leaves take rest
from their flight;
only then
they embrace
the immensity of the earth
to forget
they were once
attached to their stems.
The leaves shall breathe
their last ounces of colors,
and they shall return to
where they grew.

Dear B,

I haven't written to you in a long time. No, I have not forgotten you. Nor did I forget us. I've just withdrawn from anything and everything which even remotely reminds me of you. Is it bad, B? Because look at where I am right now. Running back to our thoughts, our memories, over and over again. Mine isn't a cry for help. Mine is a cry dreading oblivion. Yes, when Augustus Waters said that, of all things, he fears oblivion, I kinda got it for I fear the same. Do you not remember things? Was moving on easy for you? I'm assuming, it was not but I had to ask.

Then how did you put our story to rest?

-B

   When you said
   That you'd keep me
   In your heart forever
   I believed you
   Because I was always
   Taken in
   By the softness in delivery
   Of your black velvet lies
   Yet now all I have left
   To comfort me
   Are the memories
   Of my naivety from a time
   When what I really needed
   Was white satin honesty.        JD

Buried in the depths of heart
There lay a memory
Nonchalant and forgotten
Laden with specks of dust
— of you and me being one.
Darling, it’s been long...
Let’s sit together for a while
No hours, no days, few moments
Together in silence
Will wipe that dust off.
Would you? Sit with me?

The breaths felt heavy as the sun drowned behind the mountains, to kiss the horizon once again after the moon had flirted with and embraced the stars after a night.
The stars shined bright and casted the light to my eyes, their image distorted by the curvature of a bottle that lay abandoned in front of me.
The bottle had glitters floating in the vacuum inside it.
Little did I know, in this brief period of musing that I was captivated in, the night wasn't going to leave me any less befuddled.
And there was life's wile for me, lying in a bottle. The bottle of memories.

The thundering breezes suddenly fainted to witness a broken heart get sloshed in memories. The stars shimmered to fix ...
