In honor of the great Martin Luther King, a man of letters and consequence in both word and deed.
“Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think.” - MLK
Small doses of poison and melancholy.
She was all I wanted, she did not know, eventually I learned to die in silence and regret with neat elegance, I die without her and there is no corpse smell.
I did not expect to fall, let alone ascend, look at me, a poor unhappy man who ignores his side to omit his weakness, while she built barriers to her anguish, I played with her shadow.
I still doubt, my stubbornness has imposed me melancholy or is saving me from various hells. I am tormented by the paradoxes that remained in his mouth. The last Kiss.
I can't find a simple way to tell you that it is the cure to all my fears ... I'm useless when that's what it's about. These ruins that you se...
I haven't been in the headspace to write lately. I just don't want the dark thoughts documented anymore. But they are all consuming. Therefore, no writing. I'm taking a break from writing for a while.
And as aggressive they came, the calmer she must have stayed. The experience in the middle of the raging sea was an indicate of a quest she was in, it wasn't easy to realize but it was required with urgency.
Her peace never came, therefore her body went from stiff and paralyzed to a hard core mineral state. She begin to feel her thoughts fade away, her desires crumble, memories melting, and so on, till there was no light in those eyes, no air in her lungs, no struggle.
She was gone.
The air between the skin
of my palms
and the wool of my gloves
i will gag it and scorch it
until it burns to ashes
and flows out
near the bonfire
none except me will smell
warmth came for a murder
of a soul
non-existent yet burning without smell
i had a mouth once
now i no longer feel my lips
I am a rambler
rambling over my death
trying to kill myself
by walking naked in the rain
snow and wind
It is crazy the world we are living in today. Somehow, we still survive.
There are different ways to go on with this year. pick yours.
Get out of that crazy job you hate.
Look deep down and know who you really are and what you want to become.
Start new ways of income.
Learn something new every day.
Fail, and try again.
Reconnect with yourselves.
Trust your instincts.
Recognize you can still do better.
You are a leader, dear reader. And you know it.
So, new year, new me, right?
The world is no over, yet. Keep going.
Success and Love
Dear inner me,
I wanted to write this from so long time. Better late than never I feel so.
I know you've been scared, but of what?
Rejection, Trying something new, Others judging you,following your dreams.
Ohh the list is very long
But deep down you know your biggest fear is you only.
I have been scared to explore the best version of myself by ignoring the voices inside my head and soothing them with a comfortable layer of reasons whicb are called excuses.
And now they all pile up to become my so called fears.
So do I need to actually fear them.
I think so no
But to combat and fix them one at a time .
As j read somewhere a great quote
"When there is no enemy inside
Did you know that it's not as easy as turning your palms up when you want something
You need time to stagger tiredly to get back up
with the confidence you have, you will very easily be able to get back up and start over again
Thank you lettrs for allowing me to express my life through writing...I will miss this platform and the people on it.
You have listened to my highs and my lows...and now it’s time to let this app go...
Happy New Year to you all!
Lots of love,
First of all, a very happy new year... I wish you all the success in life..
Secondly, I request you to plz keep this platform alive.. It's more than a "app" for me.. It's a place where my thoughts rest in peace.. I know you are doing your best, but I just want u to know that lettrs has my heart..
But, I also wanna say dt even if that unfortunate day comes, where lettrs is not there anymore, I just wanna say thank you for creating something like this.. A place where a introvert especially like me can be myself.. So even if it comes to an end, I am glad u made it possible, I am glad that it existed... So thank-you drew for trying your best nd I hope you will soon be able to come w...
We made it. Another year went pass...
Gone... We already lived it.
Is there something you wish you might have done differently? Maybe we all have done something we are not proud of. But, we learned a lot from it as well.
All these years had built us. We are not who we used to be before. We are stronger, way more knowledge of things, and thirsty to keep learning.
If there is something you want to share, reader... Please, do so. Don't keep that inside you.
Let's leave all those bitter moments in the past. Write down your goals and accomplish them throughout the years. Focus on your passion and follow your bliss. Take risks, make mistakes, learn from them, an...
We might not always be able to see the beauty of the year ahead, until we take time to reflect on the beauty of the year from which we came. It’s there...
Life takes its toll on every person I think, but it’s when you learn to struggle happy that a richer dimension of joy falls upon you.
Blessings for 2020. We are doing our best to keep the lettrs mystery going.
Don't know how and when but plans were made for travel to one of the metropolitan cities, as to meet a person with whom I rarely interacted on social platforms, and we both had undergone same professional training as undergraduates. I did reach the destination with a close friend and met her who was accompanied by a group of her friends. We all talked for a while after which we both sneaked our way out of the group.
As we hang out together, we talked as if we weren't from different places. She suggested 'chai' after we had a light dinner. We talked as we walked, giving me a sense of happiness and excitement I never had being with someone. Then we sat together comfortably talking in a place...
Are you worried
Yes you look to me so worried
Why be worried
The 2020 year is yours
Say bye to all your worries
to say hi to all
your hurries coming
in the form of happiness.
Lettrs is not going anywhere
Lettrs is and
Lettrs will be a home for
How beautifully did the poet write, that the amount of moonlight falling into the room, depends on the size of the window...and even more importantly, on whether it is open or not! Could anything be more revelatory about one's quality of life?

In My Heart.
Let's gather some moments,
Some of mine and some of yours,
Either worthwhile or worthless,
Whom we call our own,
And those who choose us as their selves.
चलो कुछ लम्हे बटोरते हैं,
कुछ मेरे, कुछ तुम्हारे,
कुछ मतलब-बेमतलब से,
जिन्हें हम अपना कहें,
और जो हमें अपना लें।
My biggest fear is that soon I
Will wake up and see that I have died
Knowing all my family has cried
The razor has cut far too deep
Is this pain because of me?
Is it because I failed to see,
That my life was perfect the way it used to be
But now that all I love is gone
My family will have to soon move on
8 months has already passed
How much longer could their pain last
They cry too much about the past
Oh hey look I see my crush!?!
The constant love
The constant lust
All of the memories we used to have
All of the memories…
we could have had
They cry now because I am dead
Never being able to stop the dread
The constant tears
The constant Guilt
What?Wait? Whats happ...
