I make a bouquet of thorns
Just to prick myself awake.
It's a hard time dreaming,
When reality is at stake.

It's nice to know I matter,
But sad, all the same.
Quenched throats and crumpled cups,
Are serial offenders of my name.

There was a time I was once melancholy,
It seems not to have passed.
I shall sit by with my rose of thorns,
And wait for it to last.

Don't matter. Exist calmly.

WHAT DOES PURPLE TASTES LIKE?
--------------------------

I stalked her from behind as she once again walked anonymously towards the secluded houses in our society. It was strange as no one ever dared to walk in that deserted area except her. There were many different stories famous about that area. Some said that it's roads were haunted after the death of her parents in an accident. Some believed that, negativity in that area forced people to abandon their houses and a few used to say that the houses there were not sturdy enough to withstand natural disasters.
This was the reason why she was so infamous in our school & stayed anti-social, even though she was our class topper. I barely s...

THE INTERVIEW QUESTION: Why do want to become a doctor?

When Doc Tatz asked me this question during my interview when I was applying for medical school, I have already prepared an answer that was simple and sensible. But it did still caught me for a moment of crashing memories and emotions. I paused for a beat before giving my the well-thought reason while thinking about my real reason.

When I was a kid my first dream was to become a teacher partly because it’s one of the limited options I was aware of and partly because I admire my kindergarten teacher (as well as that minitured house at the corner of our classroom). But then a lot of people told me that it was hard to be a teacher because...

To Whom It May Concern,

        My name is Kristofferson Evans and I started sending Lettrs when I was just seventeen years of age. I am now older and wiser. I apologize for my absence but life was calling to me and I could not help but answer.

        In my absence I have loved and been loved. I have cried many tears and felt many a sunny day on my cheek. I met many who passed through my life and many who stayed.

        I hid from the world because I didn't think I had a place in it. Considering the current circumstances I believe we are all hiding.
        I hope you are safe, dear friend.

Dancing With the Light

You remind me of a moth.
Delicate.
Fragile.
Yet your wings are strong and beautiful.

They carry you across continents in search of what you need and I see how it nourishes your soul.

I admire your courage, my freckled friend.

You attack opportunities the way a moth will dance with the light of a naked flame,
At risk of being singed while looking into its brilliance.
And I see that it scares you.

But you are more wise than your years, sweetheart,
And time has taught you that a life free of risks is no life at all.

On Days Like These

There are days,
Days like today,
When I hear,
"It's beautiful outside",
But no matter how hard I look,
I just can't see it.

I mean,
I hear the birds,
But its just a cacophony of noises,

And I see the cloudless sky.
And I know it should excite me,
But it doesn't move me at all.
It has lost all of its colour.
And I feel no joy from its vibrancy.

It's like looking at a Monet,
With paint thinner spilt over all it,
All there is are tones of ugly, muddy, grey.

I know I should feel the warmth,
The warmth of the sunshine,
Upon my naked skin.
And the glow of the wood I am sat upon,
It should fill me to the brim,
With big smiles and exhultations.
It should make...

Hablemos sobre ti
sobre el café de tus ojos,
motivo de mi insomnio.

Hablemos sobre mi,
y sobre lo poco que me importa

mientras me sigas viendo

Hablemos en plural
Hablemos con la mirada
y besémonos con las caricias

Hablemos de "nosotros"
Sí, en plural y sin espacios
Hablemos del lunar de tu hombro
que me enamora,
y que puedo observar
cada vez que me abrazas.

Hablemos de todos los trenes

Hablemos de los besos

y que hoy en día
nos regalamos bajo las sábanas.

Every word ever written.

If I could keep in all the letters I have written, of these lines in verse, on each word, would be my intention to kiss her.

Dreams, fugitives and stories in every word carrying to his eyes, distances in which the letters no longer embrace.  

This is how the stories come to an end in an embrace, and kisses every word that were the metaphor, the most beautiful poetry.

But,
I am not gone forever.

I am wounded
But,
I am not pitiful.

I am re visiting everything
I  am repenting

Then,
You cannot bear my heat,
You will know my power,
You will know who I am.

I can be a creator,
A destroyer,
A master.

I can be anything i want,
I will have everything
I wish for,
I will be happy.

And I will not have to hide anymore.

Today was Saturday. I could see the entire city of New York from my apartment window. A low hum and sparkling lights of this concrete jungle. Like fireflies on trees, the windows of the apartment shone brightly. Each must be having it's own story.

You were in my dreams last night
And I had my way with you
Residue of guilt and shame on my pillow
I woke up thoroughly confused

Maybe this is why I hate to sleep
The temptation is always there
I deny you in my waking state
But you find me in my nightmares

My demons come out to play
My subconscious summons me
Just one more time, nobody will know
Let us bury your burdens in secrecy

I promise to never tell another soul
You know you love me and oh how I've missed you
You'll be fine, you have nothing to fear
All your worries, your trauma, can now be subdued

Come with me into my world
Let me take you away, let me take care of you
Because no one will ever really understand

The more I learn the less I know
And this has inspired me to grow

The urges, the cravings, the reservations
A long life unlived with lack of self-preservation

To speak of hope was a waste of time
Figments of your imagination unwelcomed in my mind

The fix in this case was never the solution
It was an endless ingestion of toxic pollution

And endless pursuit of selfish desires
My only goal was to get that much higher

While hitting rock bottoms, one right after the other
Because each contained a trap door that revealed another

An excavation towards death and destruction
Digging my own grave had become my sole function

Overwhelmed by the insanity and madness
Consumed by unrelen...

As I sit at your counter you slide the mug in front of me. You dive into a story about how the drive thru screwed you over last night and you are still salty about it. I listen and sip my coffee. You trip on your feet but catch your self but ...

I poured a few pieces into my palm
But my eyes grew wide as they wanted more
A sudden sensation of excitement coursed through my blood causing a rush to my head and a pounding in my chest
My hands began to sweat and my fingers quickly clenched
They defied this desire, this unwelcomed hunger
Still I entertained this temptation to swallow these sorrows
While simultaneously it scared me to permit these nihilistic considerations to consume my rational mind

My Inner Thoughts

An addict dating an addict... it’s not always easy to keep in mind the love you found before all the hurtful words were said, it’s hard to find your cuddle in the flail you’re bound to, it’s hard finding time for one another when you can’t keep your eyes open because you’re on day #4... so when you’re gone all the time, to me it seems like you’re finding every excuse to be away from me, because when an addict dates an addict it’s not always easy keeping in mind the love before it’s all said && done.

In all honesty, my addiction is to you, if all the walls were to fall around us today, my home still stands because my home is with you.
If we were to lose everything in the ...

In 2016, the storm outside reflected the one inside.
There was chaos in the room, and my granny's body was on the floor. The moment of silence directed at the impending doom.

The concotion of silence and chaos are  the basic elements of life, and at that point my life.

People started leaving the house in a while, but the repercussions of the demise were subsiding inside.

The storm seemed to be over for the outsiders, but the insiders were aware of the emerging new storm inside.

To my friend-cum-strength,

There were days when I lived in oblivion, and my potential was unknown to me and the world.

Then you came into my life like a knight in shining armour who was ready for a roller coaster ride with me! You chose to hold me tight and gear me up for a fight.

Suddenly the gumption to achieve something came into light, and by the end of the day I was ready to fight.

But, unlike Karan Johar's films neither my middle class status had a Gucci packing nor the sets were larger than life!

Keeping the facts aside, I was ready to enter the corporate world unaware of the impending "BLOOM".

We live in a world where each one of us has a battle to fight. So, should we share our plight? Or choose to keep our lips tight?

What if we choose someone to share, and they can't help but stare and say -- what's the use of suggesting anything to you, now there is nothing that can help you.

All I have told you in the past was hardly followed. So now you better swallow that emotion.

I don't blame them  as I know they have their individual battles to fight, and this time I will fight with my demons day and night...

~There is something about old books,
more than stories they hold memories,
memories of those fingers which gently turned every page making it a
soulful place.

Those pale yellow pages carry
the secrets of their grapples,
grapple in making every line
read and felt by heart.

The biblichor itself craves for the
fragrance of all those sites it has been,
and the taste it felt by those filled mugs.

The dusty torn cover somehow
knows the journey,
journey from big book shelves to those
catastrophic desks, and then maybe
again to plesurable surroundings,
                Perhaps, they know the revolving, of endings being the
new beginnings.

Couples that manage to stay together have a tendency to argue in an effort to reach an understanding. Those who are unsuccessful at resolving their differences tend to argue to win and defeat each other. All relationships eventually end when you both feel defeated. @PLECCA

Fight for me I said to myself as I stared at him, his light brown eyes, full of hurt and betrayal,
Well that was ages ago,
Yet again only heartaches seem to be my company each time I fall for someone I like,
Being too nice, being too independent and being too kind for my own good has led me down the same path,
The lone wolf's
When I'm out there looking for the love I seem to think I deserve, the universe keeps telling me otherwise..
I suppose a man who thinks love is worthy of a little fight against your better logical reasoning is a rare gem. He's out there...my lone wolf.

Getting all curled up
on wrinkled white sheets
With drowsy eyes
& dreams about you,
Wrapped in my arms.

Forehead tucked
in the arch of your neck.
Sense of your scent,
And an effort of filling
it deep in my lungs.

Soft wet touch
by my lips
Like a fresh petal
fell &
Reposed on your chest.

Crawling fingers
on your skin
with endeavor
Of passion & love.

And that morning
I woke up

All lingered
in love.

DECEPTION

I looked into his eyes
Believed his lies
How could I have known
I trusted freely
Left feeling foolish, used,
...and alone.

WITHOUT LOVE

I have loved
I have been in love

Many heartbreaks I've felt
Unrequited loves

Undeserving
Unloveable, so it seems

How does
happiness feel ?

What is it
to be peaceful?

When is that
you are in control ?

Fear filled rage
Tear filled hope
Smiles full of lies
Life full but empty.

What the mind knows,
The heart doesn't.

How much ever
life pushes,
Hope fails to
resurrect.

Why does it
come to that?

When will
the fog lift ?

Is there ever
a road to clarity ?

When broken
you can pick up,
But the fear of
awaiting the break,
is much too
horrible,
I wish that to no one
But myself.

I love how i respond in 5 minutes
And you take at least an hour and a half
Like wtf is up with that
Its a bad sign
When im smiling at my phone
Waiting for your name
And i know i need to let go
But you say the right things
And you still got me on hold
But you treat me like shit

That relationship needed to end so you could end that cycle of losing yourself in someone that never feared losing you. Those friendships needed to fade away so you could find a social circle where you are valued and appreciated. That job needed to end so you could stop feeling a sense of dread in the mornings. Everything that ends becomes the beginning of your journey towards happiness. @PLECCA

These falling expectations,
Are the wings you wanted me to have.
And you think I'm not ashamed of,
All the things I couldn't have.
Sometimes trying your best is,
Never gonna be enough.
Cause that's not how the world works,
Things failed are better off undone.
And it breaks my heart cause,
I'm conscious of everything these days.
Every single mockery,
Of the things I couldn't be and all the stares.
But lamenting never seems to fix the scars,
Holding on to things that break apart,
I'm trying my best but what does it mean?
I see the world moving everyday twice,
You think I just not realise.
Laying in my bed you think I don't care,
Walking past things which shouldn't be there,

Just a little bit of pain.

I sit on this chair.

The thought of this being my last assignment astounded me. Here, he knew where to find me. It was after that proposal nothing more left his lips, I knew this was my last day in this house.
Tomorrow I’d be off and unrecognizable to the future and all who come after me.

As he knocked, I sprinted to the door and calmly opened up. Sure, I was excited, but scared. Nothing will be the same once I do this.

“Are you ready?”

He spoke to me. Conveniently, I had sold, donated, and kept but a handful of items closest to me hoping they won’t change. It’s a silly thought, but with a deep breath I said, “All this in the name of good?”

“Absolutely.”

He then took my hand and guided me out ...

As he pulls up on the driveway, she gets ready for a difficult conversation. She sits down in the chair and waits for him to walk in. With each second that passes by a bit of her deals with her fear. How will this go? She thought over and over again.

She heard a few footsteps, closer to her table. The moment she looked up he was standing there with the same smile like always. The kind of which tells you how happy he looked from outside.

"Did I make you wait for long?" He asked taking a seat across her.

PART I

Spring was around the corner, but she didn't care. All she wanted is to sit inside. Doors and windows closed. Let the darkness consume her.

But then, out of the blue, the phone rang. It rang once, twice, she counted the every single ring. In her mind she could hear the tiny voice saying her to pick up the phone.

At last, she picked up, and indeed, that was a wierd phone call. From the other side she heard the sound of the waves upon the shore, some seagulls crying out, and someone in the background calling out loud: "Fresh fish, fresh fish!". She called out loudly, "Hello, who's there?", but there was no answer. The phone call ended suddenly.

He pulls the door open and she breathes like a burden is piling up on her. He walks in. They see each other. Their eyes meet and greet. And then, the ice breaks. He says, "Hello! What's up?".

Today was the day he had lost his wife. But did he need to stay alone forever? Was it really needed? Doesn't he deserve love?.. companionship?.. Friendship??.. She was g...

That mesmerizing weekend by the sea. Salty breeze blowing on her face. She had planned a solo trip to Goa. She needed some time off to process everything that happened over the past few weeks. She had found her man in bed with another woman, when she returned home early one evening.

The last time she was there, it was on her first wedding anniversary. Those were different times. As she walked past the window of a cafe, she heard a voic...

Spring was around the corner but she didn't care. All she wanted is to sit inside. Doors and windows closed. Let the darkness consume her. But then, out of the blue, she could hear soft whispers from one of the abandoned corners of her once clean room. A strange feeling of fear creeped into her mind and she started to run towards the door....but she stopped at her door as if it was a dead end. She did not want to go outside because she felt she didn't fit in there, amidst all the crowd. Maybe she feared rejection, maybe she felt she would never be understood, or maybe she thought she was just out of place.... whatever it was, that was keeping her from seeing the outside world, it was consumin...

She recognised his perfume, and turned a shade of red. She faced him and chose to blame the wine in her head, while being grateful that it wouldn't be evident in dark, that she was blushing.
She shrugged, unable to utter any words.
He placed a cigar on his lips, lit it and took a huge puff, "It is a beautiful sight to behold."
She brought herself to only mumble, 'The night sky is beautiful indeed.'
He stepped in a little closer and whispered, "whoever spoke of the night sky. I was talking about you."
She felt a sharp sting in her loins, and she knew she wanted him more than ever. She didn't blame the wine for this.

There's a celebration in the air
exploding in colored showers
that deafen and glitter back to earth
and the metaphor is not lost on me
as I reflect on another fourth of July
my grandfather's birthday
for the record
and I know I'm not any sort of patriot
but I still love this land
my America and all it's supposed to be
I still believe in her ideals
even though they're a bit hidden
in the midst of such heavy sadness
but I believe in the home of the brave and free where all of humanity
is created equal
and I refuse to rest until that belief
becomes reality
When all our bloody history
will finally be resigned to the past
and we can all sing along with Woody
"This land is your land...

Una existencia plena de estrechez y desilusión sufría. Se refugia en la fortaleza que el amor a sus retoños le proporciona. En su camino se cruzó con quien demostraba ser el escape de su angustia y soledad. Mas estaba lejos de poseer la portada del regalo que alguna vez soñó. Le dejó a la vera del camino pedazos hecho, confiaba en que la vida un regalo de diferente portada le daría. No contaba con que la existencia no es una serie de cumpleaños, con un regalo cada vez. Hay obsequios que se brindan una única vez en la vida...

Se siente en las fauces de un pasado recurrente, ése que sufre una y otra vez. La certeza de un recorrido circular le asola el alma. Con cada espada en su pecho, no sabe si perdonar al portador o a sí mismo. Con el tiempo siente odiarse ya, es que ya es tan difícil perdonarse a sí mismo cada vez. Rabiando de dolor y desolación, admite lo estúpida que es su forma de amar.

Eres ausencia de amor, epicentro del dolor, tormenta del desierto que solo revuelve las arenas sepultadas de la tumba de un pasado que no quiero volver a ver, eres una maldición que escribió el infierno para hacerme palidecer, porque te expulsaron del mismo infierno, por causar calamidades y destrucción que no se pueden preveer.
Si quieres verdades puntuales: ven, acércate y escucha con atención. Perforaré tu alma eternamente para que se separe en tres partes y luego para volver unirlas en el otro mundo tendrás que usar un pacto de reconciliación.

El tiempo corroe vidas que en algún momento quisimos inmortalizar, ideales que llevábamos en estandartes con orgullo y pasión. El tiempo arrebata pasiones y colores hasta volverlos ajenos, lejanos y desmotivados. La esperanza parece perecer en las lagunas perdidas de la memoria y se revuelca en la incertidumbre constante.
Déjame hoy desprender la balsa y alejarme mar adentro, donde la historia no se repite, donde la sonrisa parece resucitar, donde el tiempo es más sabio...

TENGO SED DE TI

En el inmenso azul del cielo
se dibuja nuestra silueta sigilosa
de dos seres locos enamorados
sedimentos de amor y pasión.

El viento trae voces lejanas
que se cruzan y se abrazan
tocando el fondo del  ser
que tiembla y se detiene
en cada poro de la piel.

Labios de pétalos de rosa
con deseos húmedos de florecer
y sentir que están vivos
esos besos sabor a miel.

No es basto lo que piensen
cuando tengo sed de tí
y arrebato dulcemente las entrañas
de este loco e inmenso amor

Y los pájaros que cantan para vos.

Hoy que marcas tu propio reloj

Hoy cantamos con vos.
Aquí renuevas tus esperanzas
Llego el momento de sopesar
Repartes las barajas
Y el conteo vas a retomar.
Ahora que reinicias

Pero no olvides nuevos sueños
