Tired and haggard
Distraught and lost
I dragged myself in room
Picked you up
Inhaled your fragrance
—Like that of old memories
Lay down on the couch taking you along
— feels like home with you.
And, there you lay on my chest
When I opened my eyes
No more I’m hurt, no more is the despair haranguing my soul
I may not have got all the answers, my mind seeks
Yet, I feel at peace
Because you are there, with me on my quest of finding meaning of my existence.
Looking for a Reading Buddy.
Please comment, if interested.
My mind wanders to things it shouldn't, pressing my nose up to the glass of someone else's story. Why do I long for the pages someone already filled. I have my own blank sheets beneath my fingers itching for originality. Life isn't something you can plagiarize, we do not need more copies of stories already told. This world lacks inventors. Stop being a sequal and start your own independent plot.
Her mind was overflowing with poetic verses. Some days she had too much to say, other days there was stark silence. I never knew where all of it came from; how she could think of such eloquent masterpieces. I guess her mind was a more complicated, beautiful thing than I could ever have imagined.
The power certain words or lines have is very deep..
While writing this,I am reading a book of Arundhati Roy..
She is famous for her language..her way of writing..
In one of her books.. towards the end of a chapter..there are 3 simple lines..
But I think..those 3 lines made the chapter.It is as follows..
"Anjum waited to die.
Saddam waited to kill.
And miles away,in a troubled forest,a baby waited to be born..."
These 3 lines looks very simple..but..I felt it explains what each one of us are... Everything else we think as we are or as we have is just an illusion...
For our story to be written, but no you just left by saying it's an empty book
Human are not an open book even
when they say they are
There will always be some pages
that are written by invisible ink
You need an eye to look into a
The problem is,
Everything is written on the cover
But like everyone you started searching inside the book which is empty.

I'm sure a lot of you must have watched the movie "Wonder" which is about a ten year old kid named August Pulman who gets bullied at school because of his facial deformity. I am so in love with the movie because it can instantly melt hearts and make people realize what inner beauty is. The necessity of being kind is also highlighted in the movie. But, one thing I'd like all the ardent readers to do is to read the book because it is as beautiful as the movie. The writer, R. J Palacio has wonderfully described Augie's life from different points of view of his friends, sister and sister's friends. Sometimes, we get so lost in ourselves that we forget to be kind to one ...
It's book day. Books are the best part of our life. All books have different lesson to teach us. We get knowledge from the book according to our thoughts. It says books are the best friend of the human. The more we read more we get and more we can share. So read more get more and share more.
Happy reading to all.
If I am able to imagine myself flying high in sky,
Then books are the only airplanes for it.
If I can see far ahead than others,
I must be standing on mountain stack of books.
If I can think with more dynamism than before,
I have surely spent more time in library.
If I can remain optimistic,
Books are the prime fuel for it.
If human minds are rockets,
Books are the major propeller of it.
If I can improve my writing skill with time,
Books are my ultimate guides.
If flower garden is symbol of beauty and fragrance,
Library is epitome of Wisdom and Peace.
If we have to create better living in all segment of life,
Books are the firmest pillars of it.
Happy World Bo...
his hazel eyes
are wide like saucers,
serving his bitter-sweet
heart for someone to take.
his tongue is dry cake
not easy to taste,
his skin rough, smooth to love
and heavy to care.
his hair devilish and lips
are buttery thick, soft
and hungry for another.
The question isnt who will let me, the question is who will stop me!
The way Ayn Rand pens down about reaching out to one's goals and best selves has always impressed me!
This one is from her book The Fountainhead.
The Things I’d Do (Closeted)
You know what it’s like to kiss her lips and I don’t.
You were probably too drunk to even remember.
She told me she was too drunk to remember,
But her friends were sober enough not to forget.
The things I’d do for that memory he stows—
Just a sliver of myself prays
That I see your face when I turn a corner
Or see you standing there when I open a door,
But even if I were to, I would forget to breathe
For just a moment, but then
I’d choose to carry on by, unscathed.
Sometimes I wonder what would have happened
If I really showed up to your house that night,
The one when you begged for me to come over.
Luckily I was smart enough to tell that it w...
Inside my mind
Like a monarch
Between the pages
Of an old, yellowed book
Free to fly
With its beauty
Stuck in a story
That no one
Will ever read. JD

When you randomly buy a book and then start to read it and you realize that it was just made for you, like if that book was waiting for the right person, waiting to be read like there is no tomorrow, waiting for a new home, then the connection begins...
