The sun meets water

     As it sets, giving life to

         Graceful, coral seas.

Beauty, dear Beauty
What a funny fowl is she-
makes her home in quiet, gnarled, hollow tree.

Attraction, her sister, dwells in the light-
Causing riotous awe for her every flight!

But Beauty is different, her feathers don’t fade.
She is far more desired, though she hide in the shade.
Her companions are quiet and often thought strange:
The painter, the dancer,
Bell ringer of Notre Dame.

Who can find her but those who know
The hollow tree she lives in called Sorrow?

A woman feeds you
With her body
As you take sustenance
From her.
She feeds you
With her soul
And makes you feel whole.
A woman softens the blows
That this life can bring.
She’s comfort
Like balm on parched skin.
A woman is God’s idea of love.

Burning for me, she harboured herself in the dark,
A ray of light, from a door left ajar,
The beauty she is, syllables seek her hide,
She's a Dantè on a canvas of Whites...

God it sucks. I wanted you to be the one. You know? I wanted it so badly I continued to go back time and again over the last month knowing the end result because I’ve been here before.. like deja vu.. insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

I allowed you to take me for granted, diminishing my self worth as you would blatantly show me I didn’t matter to you. You made yourself clear as a sunny summer day it didn’t matter to you whether I stayed or left and the total lack of respect you so unpleasantly bestowed upon me gnawed away at my self esteem ..

I kept trying to be a better girlfriend making excuses for your shitty behavior, but the truth...

One night, he starts to realize that his work never really interested him. And so, once again, he found himself staring out of the window. It was in that moment that he felt something he never experienced before. He saw her, in her yellow dress. The wind played with her dress as she turned around and they locked eyes.

He could never understand why the girl stops greeting him before the new year. it was ...

Beauty is hidden in Honest hearts,
Broken and beautiful from the start.
The kind of heart that does not masquerade the journey it takes.

Beauty is given,
In the roots dug deep.
Showing us the more we mend,
The more we seek,
The more we will learn to breathe.

Beauty is hidden in honest hearts,
Broken and beautiful from the start.
Humbled and whole;
Hearts that know,
What a journey it is..
to finally make it H O M E.

Real incident of my life... must read you will be shocked too :- (for english scroll down below)

एक दिन की बात है मैं दोपहर का खाना खा रहा था। और मैंने खाते हुए अपने पास से एक आवाज़ सुनी जो की मूषक के बच्चो की थी। उनकी माँ उनके पास नहीं थी और वो भूक से तड़प रहे थे।
शायद उनकी माँ उनके लिए खाना ढूंढने गई थी। मुझसे उनकी ये हालात देखि नहीं गई और मैंने उनके पास एक रोटी का टुकड़ा रख दिया पर वो इतने छोटे थे की वो उसको खा नहीं सकते थे। फिर मैंने सोचा की उनकी माँ तो खा ही लेगी आ कर और फिर इनकी भी भूक मिट जायेगी अपनी माँ के दूध से। और फिर तब ही उनकी माँ वहां आ गई पर उसके पास कोई खाना नहीं था। मुझे लगा की वो भूकी है इसलिए वो ये रोटी का टुकड़ा खा लेगी। पर मैं ये देख के हैरान रह गया उसने उस रोटी के टुकड़े को...

Guage the intensity of storm well,
Prepare yourself for a deep cramp,
Clean your armor and Sharpen your axe.
Stand tall and keep thou abreast.

It's ok to have teary eyes, wounded sides
Dust your knees, Pull up the sleeves.
Know your foes and know your camaraderie
Self awakening is the ultimate key

Bed and blood both are relevant
Love and vacate both are important
When heaven and hell both exists
Why to arrange one sided see

Strength in the thoughts, warm in the speech
A strong woman is a bundle of God and a beast.

Fortune favors the brave.
And she was bravest of all,
fought the wars for her beliefs.
Won the honor of dignity.
Worn her integrity like a badge.

Don’t blame me for my darkness,
blame your lust,
your craving of perfection.
Darkness lies within my eyes,
within my hair,
within my soul,
and it will remain there...
It makes me remember,
That my skin has the color of my land
Land bathed with blood
Blood from my brothers and sisters
children of the corn,
children of Tlaloc,
Their life,
Their dreams,
were drained
by the wishes of lustful, unmerciful men
It makes my chest explode,
pieces of my heart scattered all over the place
I feel the rage of those emerald volcanoes
who couldn’t protect their people

In my mouth, the spanish tongue
Cervantes,
Becquer,
Lorca,
Borges,
Neruda and his inmortal verses
García Marquez speaks to me

I think more people should talk about heartbreaks, and that it's okay to go through the pain. It's a part of life and eventually, you'll either find it more bearable or you'll find it empowering you. There is nowhere else you should probably end up in. Yes, the pain hurts but if you can do something about making things better, go for it. If not, I guess there aren't many alternatives to this whole thing. You just have to brace it.

                                                                   Freckle


                                                       I was a virgin canvas
                                                   your lips couldn't stain

                                            I had waterfalls inside my chest
                                                your eyes couldn't contain

                                                         I ached in places
                                                your hands couldn't touch

                                                        I spoke of autumns
                                              words couldn't adorn much

Trigger

Trapped in the aftermath of a catastrophe, except the only thing catastrophic, my thoughts; ones I could not control. You, on the edge of a cliff, looking for something, anything, a sign to not jump.

We were both disastrous endings in the making, caught up in storms greater than ourselves, fighting desperately to stay alive. The difference between you and I was that you were in control and I was not. You were strong and I was not. And every time we got close, our storms would collide, throwing us off course from where we were hoping to go.

You triggered me and I triggered you and we kept calling it love. We kept going at it because how can love be so wrong, right? Wrong. Because ...

Ye mat puchho ki kaisi aurat hun,
Karoge yaad ki aisi aurat hun 😎🤘

Shhh..chupke se girau ye dard k ansoo,
Phir bhi hansti rahu ki aisi aurat hu

Bar bar zindagi jise neeche giraane mein juti ho,
Phir bhi har bar khadi ho jau ki aisi aurat hu,

Jiske paas hain sabke raaz, jisse sab karte mann ki baat,
Par khud na kabhi bolu khud k halaat ki aisi aurat hu,

Jiske aane se aaye bahaar, jiske jaane se jaaye bahaar
Jo vo jaane ki khud hai bahaar par anjaan rahe ki aisi aurat hu,

Jiski palko mein anginat sapne aur chamak hai ghazab ki ankho mein,
Phir bhi hotho se chhupa jaye dard ki aisi aurat hun,

Chaal dekhi tumne, nain dekhe tumne, naksh dekhe,
Jo dil bhi hatheli pe dikha du rakh ke ki aisi...

I love you,

And that's why I have to let you go,

To hold on to you,

When you're only giving me a temporary place,

Until you find the next attempt to take my place,

I won't give you that,

I won't give you the chance to use me to cover your loneliness,

Until you find somebody else,

And discard me again,

I don't want to be friends,

I want to be lovers again,

But this is only a one sided wish,

I'm not part of your plans,

Because I am not enough,

You've said it so many times with your words,

"I don't know what I want",

"My heart is a mess",

"My head is a mess",

"I'm not ready",

"This isn't the right time",

"We're too immature",

"I can't do this",

"This isn't right",

You just...
