LOST (A SHORT STORY?)
I pressed both sticky palms to the glass, eyes wide, mesmerised by the colourful fairies and woodland animals - motorised toys that danced and pranced along their circuitous routes in the shop window. "Look, Mum! That one there with the rainbow wings!" I turned and beamed at my mother standing at my side with what I hoped was an endearing smile... except it wasn't my mother. The old lady beside me coughed and shuffled her feet awkwardly.
"I'm afraid I'm not your mother, dear," she sniffed.
I shrank back away from her, staring as she moved away back into the crowd. Where was my mother? I turned and scanned the tumultuous sea of fac...
.... Here's to the good life people say.
Sometimes i feel like something is wrong. I don't belong here. It'll all turn around. You never gave me a reason to doubt you. Memories i can't erase...i feel like i lost what i found. Some things are lost or left behind.
Maybe for someone else to discover.
I have habits following me.
I have traits that are passed down.
Its sad.... That we lose the good things, we lose the start of something new as it becomes old.
People change. Weather shifts. Nothing is ever as it once was or what it seemed....with time things move along. Everything switches up. For better or worse? Each person that comes and goes I seem to take a piece of them with me as i leave...
Oh how I hoped for you to be my dreams come to life,
instead you became my living nightmare!
Life can get too much,
Life can weigh too much,
I get it,
I get that feeling of escape,
Feeling that you can leave some of the weight,
Maybe leave someone behind,
Someone you know will stay,
Someone you want to come back to,
Someone you know will stay.
I get it and yet,
It's too much of a pain,
I don't want to hate,
To feel this menace.
After all, it was I who said,
I can be whoever you want
So if that someone is me,
Let that be.
Except it the grave night,
When nothing feels right,
I find myself thinking,
If ever i had to make that choice,
I can say this without blinking,
I'll give up on anything but you.
The time lag
Day after Day I passed
without demanding from you to always keep me company
Day by Day I live with a heavy heart
even though this heart hurts and restlessly waits for when this time lag Will end?
And little by little I had to stop getting used to you, to get away, as every bird moves away from the storm when it approaches.
Number of times, you typed how to die without pain was really painful.
One day I want to feel the warmth of the sun in winter,
I want to feel the gush of wind, rushing against me....
I want to feel the sand beneath my feet...
I want to see clear blue skies again,,
I want to be happy again
This is not goodbye, till I see you again.....
Next time I will never let you walk from me....
Our story is magic
But it's been long years
And everyone has accepted.
We had our tales
shout out at the bars,
we sold like hotcakes
even at funerals,
and we were small talk in cars.
We were tales at the parties
and recited at get-togethers
We were wasted at anyone
who would listen
Until no one would.
It was bright yellow decor
Now light seems coming off from the far
New relationships are crazy
And they keep changing their better half.
They have a new story every week,
and we sit back contemplating who we are
Darling, we didn't lose the magic
Just coz we stayed and they couldn't.
There is nothing wrong with us
but the world has grown so cold,
with everyone usin...
I'm hanging by a thread
& I can't seem
to find a seam
to hold on to
a n y m o r e
I'm tired of drifting
through the fabric oflife a lo n e
I just want
to be intertwined
with someone like me
But the world
has fo rg o t t e n how to sew
& here I am
feeling like the last thread
without a purpose..............
"No longer in step with the same rhythm,
No more will the song and dance repeat the Same memory
that was found in each steps That were made.
I 'll be running to some new world while you Sleep away
And although we are planets apart,
We share the same moon.
I look at it as a momentum of hope,
A beginning that I 'm waiting for that
For you, it may be a sign,
A reminder that the loving soul won 't feel
Out of place because you and your love are Seeing the
In a way, I 've settled in the dark.
My eyes are nothing like the sun...
But they have a glow that very few people See. "
You had this image of me. This side i showed... The talks of what i desire in you to perform the little self proclaimed slut that i was. Always trying to catch your eye. Can i make an impression that would have you falling for me.... I seen you I immediately felt drawn. Your strong personality was confident. You're words stayed true. Your kindness was genuine. You didn't play games from what my instinct tells. You showed me no dirt and done me no wrong.
I don't know where the time went, 3 and even more hours video chatting with you. Waking up every morning and seeing you put a smile every time on my face. Id hide my blushing face. Id giggle and twirl my hair. I love how you'd show me all you...
There are those people,
Who walk away at the tiniest sparks ever seen.
And then those,
Who dive into probably the biggest forest fire, ever on earth!
Here am I,
Wanting to longing to dive into the depths of the all-consuming fire of love but scared that it would actually end up being a mirage
How many more nails do you have?
How many more till its the final one?
It is an empty coffin,
It will be an empty grave.
Because what's inside has already died
And it will rott away till you reach your end.
You pay attention, don't you.
Avoidance was never your game.
You watch the color fading away from the face,
You watch the eyes, looking down.
You watch the sudden hysteria in the voice till it go silent.
You watch the raised pace till the footsteps disappear.
You see its what the venom does to a person,
It's like a hand around the neck, choking it.
Its like an open wound, draining the blood out.
Drop by drop,
Nail by nail,
Bite by bite.
The lost fight.
I am not fighting anymore,
I am ...
Since you left, the dark
Is all I have ever known
I long for light now.

Unko ab mere awaz sunn kay bhie dard hota hai
Jikay sath zindagi bitanay ka wada tha, unko to ab mera naam sunn kay bhie sar dard hota hai..!!
This is my first time doing something like this. Putting my feelings out in the open usually isn't what I do often but I guess if someone is out there to listen here goes,
My life is not the perfect life I pictured having growing up. I dreamed of going to college, moving out on my own, and meeting a great guy.
I am 20 years old and none of these things have yet to happen. I know I'm still young and have plenty more things to come, that's what everyone tells me. But I just want to live a good life.
I keep trying to find my fairytale guy which is not reality, which I know, but I want to believe it will happen.
I still live with my family and am limited by sharing a bedroom with my younger s...
It was that night, the last night when we were sitting in the living room, watching tv. We were all happy and laughing at his jokes.
I stood up and told him goodnight. He told me the same thing and smiled at me. That's his last words. "Goodnight". He seemed happy and peaceful. We all did.
And the next morning everything changed. She was in panic, rushing to the hospital with him. I stayed home, calling her every hour in order to learn how he was.
But I knew. He wasn't going to make it. We would be all alone from now on. I would be alone. And that's what happened. Because sometimes, life isn't a great fairytale. But our strength in such difficult situations, can be.
Sometimes it's too hard to focus on the fact that suffering will end and you'll get there. Maybe it never ends, it take breaks and we call them life.
