the sound of the dripping on the damp walls
from the beer bottle you threw at mother
she’s on the ground
bleeding out
yet you stand in my way of helping her
you laugh at her pain
her misery
but she still loves you
i don’t understand why
all i know is
i’m not going to break her heart like you intended too
i will keep her safe
and away from you
your hands
are too powerful
our hands
are too weak
you nail our feet to the ground
and order that we stand up.

Maybe I wasn't the best thing that happened to you. Maybe someday, it would be easier to accept that.
Someday, when you come back to our city, would you feel the rush to come visit my place,once your heavenly abode?  In that moment, would you regret the decision you took, would you regret leaving? That day, when you find that nothing really changed here, would you know that neither did I? Would the roads leading you to my place, tell you my story, explain how I passed my days, in your absence? Would my terrace show you traces of my presence, as I looked upon the road, for time infinite, hoping that you would return until it eventually exhausted me? Would my house speak of my cries, of the ...

WRITING PROMPT
Love


We’ve all been blinded by the blanket of emotions that comes from falling down the precipice of union into love. While we only have one word for it, the ancient Greeks in their pursuit of wisdom and self-understanding, found seven different varieties of love that we all experience at some point:

EROS (EROTIC LOVE)
MANIA (OBSESSIVE LOVE)
STORGE (FAMILIAR LOVE)
LUDUS (PLAYFUL LOVE)
PRAGMA (ENDURING LOVE)
PHILAUTIA (SELF LOVE)
PHILIA (AFFECTIONATE LOVE)
AGAPE (SELFLESS LOVE)

Choose one as your topic and use it as the title of your poem or short story.

Tag your letter, "love".

   .... And he left.

Yes, you made me feel
my place very precisely.
I got to know my worth,
Beneath all the lies and the truth;
Between what's chosen and what's not.
My fate is always meant to be 
stuck with something not worth.

Yes, I do have options,
to leave or
to stay.
Can change my fate 
with a blink of an eye;
with choices that I make!

But still, I chose him
Be it,
storms;
cold;
fights;
breakups.
In all the highs and lows
I could see, to be 
with him the most.

Yes, you do ask me
to choose better;
to leave you for best;
to leave because you care.
But I stay,
not because 
you offer me to leave;
Or it is hurting too much.
Because it is not up to the brim.

Our relationship has colours...

Every new 'Thing' in life, brings with it an excitement. You know that feeling in the stomach, when your heart is elated, all set for the new experience. That's when your mind stops reverting back , that's when it imagines a better future, makes plans and life seems so beautiful with no weary past.
It is only when the 'new experience' runs dry, when it all gets over, when the bubbles burst, that a realization strikes.
Someday, sitting on your favorite spot, living on your normal life, you come across a familiar name and a  known feeling gushes in. A memory of an old 'thing' you once owned, a thing that was your muse for years. It hits you, how the craving of the new washed away the exist...

She closed her eyes and breathed,
Its time you go,
Confusion clear in his eyes,
Sadness in hers,
But he knew if he stayed,
He would destroy her.

"The music was exciting, the weather bright. They were dancing as the music swept them from side to side. All eyes were on them. The stars of this evening.
When the song ended they sat down. He wondered if this was the right time..."
The sky was lit with stars, breeze rustling through her soft golden locks.
He bent down on his knees only to see a pair of painful eyes swelled in tears and longing.  He closed his eyes knowing his calming words of mutual love will soothe away her pain.
Suddenly he heard her call a name...not his.  He opened his eyes and there she was running bare foot draped in ecstasy.  Till she melted in that strangers arms. "I thought you will  never come" she was laughing a...

They say this world is a prison for the believer...
They say this world is paradise to the disbeliever...

They say Home is where the heart is...

Then it wouldn’t make sense for heart to be at home? For the believer...

They say live on this world as a traveller...

For sure the heart travels...

Travels with it’s Home, where ever you roam...

"I just want to be with someone who never stops trying. Never stops fighting for our relationship, and who will be down for me no matter what." - Aishwarya Kris

I know it wasn't easy
All the times we argued
And when we fought, we thought we were through
Felt like we would never speak again
Know deep down I loved you, even then
No matter what, my love is with you till the end

काला पानी, काला मन
काली है ये रात

पार करके आना चाहूँ , तुझ तक
मैं ये समुन्दर सात

सोच रही हूँ कैसे निकलूँ
यहाँ, धुएँ की बारात

कह ना पाऊँगी तुझसे
कभी मैं यह बात

सब कुछ निछावर कर दूँ तुझ पे
दूँ प्यार भरी सौग़ात

पर डर लगता इस दुनिया से
काला पानी, काला मन
काली है ये रात ।

Dear Yan,

It's 8pm in E and last year, on this day, we were together. We had met at 5:10pm and we had hit it off like crazy.

I know, deep inside you still have feelings for me. And I know, you are going to come back to me. I'll wait for you no matter how long you take.

I am sorry that I have been such a bitch. I have ignored all your emotional needs for the past few months. I took a long time to realise that. I am really, really sorry. Please forgive me. I should have been more supportive and should have taken care of your feelings. I have treated you like crap the past few months. Although I am grateful for all the things you have done for me, I have rarely shown any appreciation or grati...

When I first saw you, I had never seen eyes that seemed so lonely.
I reached out to you and gave you my hand so boldly,
A man shaped by misery,
Shrouded in mystery,
Tucked behind a crowd and a smile,
Unravel his charm and he'll make it worth while.

Do you remember my name? And the fact that I loved to hear it in your voice. That occasionally when I called out to you, it was only so I could listen to you, say my name. That every time you called my name, I felt safe, I felt your assurance, I believed that you were around.
Are you around anymore? Will you not keep me safe? Will you not assure me that it's going to be alright, that whenever I would need you, you would lend me your hand?
Have you left already, moved on?

You can learn from the person you fall in love with
You can grow with the person you fall in love with
but
You can't change the person you fall in love with
and
You can't change yourself for the person you fall in love with

DEAR ME OF 2023
Five uears ago you didn't like to socialise. You didn't express your emotions. You didn't express your feelings. You had very few best friends and even fewer(1 or 2) whom you could really trust. So to whom would you have talked. Family? Yeah right! As if they didn't have a hundred problems of their own. You tried to atleast solve your emotional and mental problems on your own. Five years ago you thought that life is easier alone than with a family coz when you have a family expectations come along and non-fulfilment of those leads to frequent arguements. You thought the same about your love life and avoided any kind of committment and relationships in these past five years. I'...

They sat opposite each other in a dim lit beautiful romantic restaurant.
Apart from the candle light, there was one more thing in between them. "Silence".
Not many words were spoken other than the taste of the food.
Even though they saw each other after days, the spark between them was lost. The silence between them was leading to the end of an era.
The hug at the end of the night was no more a, 'I miss you. Meet me soon' .
All it said without words was 'Goodbye'.

It felt surreal,
The answers to her agony.
She had grown accustomed to it’s nuisance, numb in other words.
The moment had come though, and as everyone said, she has no idea how she survived.
Looking back, the path was so unclear.
The warmth felt amazing. Her peace within herself felt the heaven. She smiled for the first time in years, and it was pure joy!
