I guess, I need to make the most of this... not knowing if everything is gonna be how it is after this is gone...

It hurts to write this... it hurts because it feels like I'm saying goodbye to a friend I never wanted to lose. I cried when I found out that I would need to give up my safe haven in days not even sure of. It's hard to lose peace in a place especially when you started getting comfortable there. I wanted this so badly... have a place to call home and not having to move again, but it seems like I'm destined to live out my life in constant move, and it is tiring... but for what it's worth...

Thank you for making this, for the hearts and minds behind this... that made this re...

I won’t say goodbye
because it’s too sad.
I’ll try not to cry
even though I feel bad.
I’ll continue to write
because that’s what I do.
And when I pick up my
pen, I’ll think of you.

To lose this safe space is incomprehensible. No app or piece of technology has ever constituted to my identity. But this app... These letters... They have become me. This profile is the purest form of me that is out there in the world. Hidden in plain sight, fully identifiably me but cloaked in the animosity and respect that this platform provided so perfectly.

I can't believe it.

Wauw.

It actually hurts.

I wrote my first letter in 2014. This page, this app, literally shows my growth as a person. These letters have bore witness to my coming 9f age, to the mistakes I made, to the lovers I had and all the heart ache I have faced. I have seen myself fall and climb back up within the words th...

Dear Jen,

You are one in a million. You've earned the respect of all of us here for your dedication to Lettrs. You always go the extra mile for us and that hasn't gone unnoticed, my lovely.

You have also become someone I consider a good friend. You are considerate, thoughtful and genuine. I feel very blessed to have met you here.

I also deeply admire you. I am in awe of your creative gifts! Your abilities with the pen span from remarkable and ingenious illustrations to superb poetry. I would love to own a piece of your artwork one day. Perhaps we can do a swap? 😁 Drew has been fortunate to have your loyalty to Lettrs for so many years. You talents shaped the platform in many ways.

Today i signed into lettrs, to randomly post a write up/thought that came up in my mind like always;

"do not forget, this is also what you chose
for yourself. Because not choosing
something else and choosing this are not
different, and, thus."


these were just lines that translated my thought and i casually opened lettrs to record it, like i always do, with no routine no expectation, because i had always known that this would be that digital corner that will always be there when i am down, low, happy, wondering, thinking, contemplating, guilty, pleased, lovestruck, depressed, joyous, empowered, and every other possible feeling i could experience, this was a safe haven a nook a corne...

One last letter.

Two days back I came to the app totally unprompted. I don't write as much anymore, I come here only to remind myself of the person I was before. I was taken aback when I read lettrs was going away.

My journey in letters started 6 years back in my formative years. Even though my writing wasn't nearly as polished as I would have liked it to be, this app was the place where I wrote enough to add the word "writer" as one of my descriptions.

This platform was the same place that brought great authors like Paulo Coelho to read my words, I could've never even dreamt in my wildest dreams that I'd be interacting with one of the authors who has changed the world.

Dear Drew,
I'm happy to write this last letter to you so I could thank you and your Team for connecting so many hearts and thoughts.
Never have I seen a similar place where people really had their hearts on their sleeves in so many various ways. I loved that what was truely important wasn't your name or age but your feelings and thoughts. Hope there will be a continuation in the future and in any case I want to share a simple 'Good luck!' wish for your own future.
May beautiful things happen to you~

When everyone is saying goodbye to lettrs or may say lettrs is saying goodbye to us....I would like to thank this app not because it helped me to pen up things which I would have never wrote otherwise . I also came to know one thing about me that I can also words not in an excellent way but still in a bit poetic way. This app provided me with a space to live my imagination . I will not say that it reflects my journey of life but yes it reflects journey of my imagination. Thank drew for this wonderful platform and thank you #Shipra Tripathi for introducing this app to me.

Dear lettrs,
As you are going away, and everybody is saying you goodbye in their own ways, I thought I should not shy away from this that have created which feels like a space in my heart, so here it goes.
I wrote my first lettr on September 1st 2014, I thought let's try out this application, little did I knew it won't remain just an application but will become a part of my life and will effect the course of my life.
As I've grown from 19 year old to 25, I've been through different phases of my life and one can clearly see it by going through my feed. Lettrs became a safe space for me, a place where I was never judged for feeling what I truly felt. It became a beautiful diary of my emotions, ...

I know all about darkness.
It can keep you hidden,
when you don’t want to be seen
but there is no freedom
to be found from being invisible.
You can’t hide from your thoughts, they linger.
Do not be afraid to acknowledge
the unspoken words,
be vocal,
find your voice.

Appreciate every single mood swing,
Appreciate the fact that it is just how your heart sings,

Be careful who you give your heart to,
fire is not dangerous,
people that do not respect or understand it are.
Your heart should never be a reward
for the kind of person that wants the promotion
but is not committed to the cause.
There should be a spark
and that spark should turn into a raging fire.
If you find that you are constantly having to fan the flames,
in the hope that they will never fade,
then it is energy misspent.
Energy that belongs to you.

as though I am just something to be consumed
until your level of hunger is satisfied.

and in that moment,
we were finally free.
I have held you,
but my arms can’t seem to forget,

I have loved you,

although rivers may flow,
at different speeds,
in the end,
they always return,

from the sea I was born,

It's been more than a week of unending work - hardly any sleep and random munchies for meals. "Don't know how long I can go on like this", I utter at last to my friend, breaking down in sheer exhaustion. It's the middle of the week and none of us have enough time for cranky conversation or consolation, and so we hang up in another couple of minutes. It's been ages since the Sun decided to show all its might - scorching heat and skyrocketing temperatures with no respite in the form of winds! What could possibly be worse than this!

But alas! The last couple days showed just what can be worse: enormous grey clouds playing hide-and-seek with the sun! So now with the heat is the humidity as well ...

                       "You’re not a failure just because you had a setback"

Failure is difficult for anyone. But just because you failed in the past doesn’t mean you’re doomed in the present. The lessons you’ve learned from your epic fail can help you attain bigger wins today. Nothing can stop you from turning your failure into a massive win.

Often times things go OK or even better than that. But on some days they don’t. You make a mistake, have a setback or you simply fail. So what’s needed is a smart and self-kind way to handle such situations instead of letting them lead to vicious self-beatings and to them dragging you down into negativity for the day or month.

The first thing...

            Two Super Humans

During the last few days i have been engaged in an audit. New places, new people but the same old techniques. It was almost getting monotonous and mechanical and i wasnt getting much fun at work.  

While I was waiting for some misstatements to be found like the hound longing for blood, unintentionally I met super humans, not one but two.

1. The ever smiling accountant

For the fisrt time in my life i saw an accountant who keeps her smile on even when misstatements are pointed out. Being an auditor with four years of experience, i had never met such a pleasent one.

We, auditors,  are never used to have a look at the personal life of the accountants. But some ...

आज मैंने एक ताल देखा।
सूखा था, गमगीन था।
दो दिन पहले देखा था मैंने उसको,
झूम रहा था; झमाझम बारिश में वो।
दो दिन मिला ना प्यार पानी का उसको,
लहराना ही भूल गया; बताए अपना हाल वो किसको!
हम तो फिर इंसान हैं...
दोस्तों के बिना वीरान हैं!!
दो पल की दोस्ती में खुश हो जाते हैं,
ज़िन्दगी भर साथ रहने के सपने बुन जाते हैं।
तीसरे दिन उस ताल की तरह,
साथी का साथ जब छूट जाता है....
मायूसी और अकेलापन रह जाता है।
पर उम्मीद का दामन ना छोड़ पाता है!
उस ताल को भी तो है उम्मीद,
एक दिन फिर लौटेगा उसका मीत...

I convinced myself that I was happy just surviving
But I've learned its never too late to start reviving
All my buried goals and aspirations
From the stagnant state of procrastination
For there hides a deceptive comfort in misery
Because of its familiar repetitive history
A zone that I have known all too well
A zone in which I am no longer willing to dwell

Running hobbled
Tripping over rocks
Colliding with walls
Every turn dead end
Every progression resistant to momentum
Hacking through the brush surrounding
Pushing my way through
I stumble through
Relief of obstacle
Moving with greater ease
No impediments block my path
All I ever needed was the final push
Choose the right path
With enough will and strength
Ease found in the freedom of direction
All paths are now open
Choose
Decide
There’s no more ends
Only beginnings are beyond

Hope to want something to happen and think that it is possible. So basically when you say I hope.... It's because you want that things to happen whether you think it's possible or not.

Expectation and hopes are beliefs or wishes about the future,while hope is a feeling of optimism or desire that something will happen. Although these two are similar,they are not the same.

You will have days where the fog settles,
and your bones feel heavy.
On those days, it is important that you seek out the sun,
regardless of what form it takes.
A life ruled by darkness will never find peace.
The mental walls that you put up
that you think are keeping you safe,
are the reason you feel isolated and trapped.
Gather your thoughts,
bathe them in the light of the day
so that they may roam free
with a renewed sense of hope and energy.

Don't promise the world
I won't believe you.
My mind is practical
And no more romantic
Than a can filled with sand
By the filthy shore.

Don't expect me
To fall at your feet
As you lavish me with gifts.
I am not a toy,
Or a digger looking
For the comfortable
And common.

Do not be surprised
If I demand equal rights.
I do not want to be
A man.
What I want is to be
Treated like an equal
With great minds.

My opinions are mine.
I do not expect you
To believe them or adhere.
What I need is for you
Not to treat them as trash.
I need arguments and discussions
Not to be patronized.

You are welcome to be angry. ...

Months ago the heat squandered me. A long time before Summer ever started. I don't think about it enough, what I've been through and where I'm going. And I think about it too much.

I thought I would spend the rest of my life wasting away in one place with nowhere to go but down. I thought there was nothing for me at all until persistent voices broke down my deafening walls. Then I looked a little bit closer. I realized that I could have anything I put forth the effort for. Why shouldn't I? And what more do I have to do other than breathe to be loved? It's the contract I entered into, being born. As long as I breathe I am loved. As long as I live and after I die to live again.

The first letter goes to myself.

Learn to make it on your own, learn to trust... only yourself.
Learn to love yourself first, and then who deserves it.
Learn to understand, to understand many things that you may not accept.
Learn to observe.
Learn to listen.
And above all, learn not to be ashamed of being who you are.

From myself, to myself.
And also to those who need it.

It's been awhile since I wrote anything of significance in any capacity.  So many years, so many decades I searched for the "others" . Those mythical beings that were in easy possession of an infinite array of weird, magical and unfathomable ideas.  The kind of folks I loved listening to and sharing with until 4 in the morning .
I traveled 48 states, 8 provinces and 3 countries over decades and sought out these unicorns,  these ghosts of the world.

That the sad (but expected) and quite tragic lesson that I learned was that they or you (I suspect you who read this...) are very, very rare.  I cannot count the many times when I started a conversation with someone,  got my hopes up in the exc...

No matter how hard I tried,
I always ended up losing you..
I kept you so close to me;
But you still chose to leave.
I spent my savings on you;
But you never gave a heed.
I slept thinking about you last night;
Wanting to keep you safe,
because you were my only one,
My dearest!
But when I woke up , you were gone, Gone like the wind...

I let you keep my sight together, but you still wandered away everytime.
I never let anybody have you..
I treated you like my own baby;
But you were least bothered to hold on to me or my feelings!!

And there will come a day,
When tears have no place here.
And I fear its arrival, for the

The sun starts to shine, on a Time

Hello there,
I found this hidden gem when I was looking for a writing app or something or other (can't remember exactly) a few months ago then I got busy and stuck in the rat-races of life these days but isn't that the same with everyone. So it sat there on my phone in a folder that I access quite regularly just collecting dust (so to speak), so today I finally  had some downtime so I finally decided to set up an account and give this app a try.

I am not sure how exactly this really works but the way that I think that it works is that its like talking to the moon and stars in the sky above me when I am missing someone I love who has passed away just hoping that I could hear their voice o...

Look around you. Observe the world that you are living in.

Can you feel the beating of a thousand desperate hearts?

Can you see the fear for tomorrow in the looks of people?

Can you hear the cries of a thousand mothers who are losing their children each day?

Now ask yourself, is this the place where you always want to live?

Is this the place where each child expects to grow up when they open their innocent eyes and see the world for the first time?

Are you able to look in the eyes of those children without the feeling of shame for this reality full of evil, which they have to face?

Is this what we have prepared for them throughout centuries and years?

We cannot deny ...

Love can go full circle sometimes,
& pain can be just a step behind.

We started as friends, then had some fun, & then I showed emotion while intoxicated.

My head & heart were not connected, as my heart was opening but my mind stayed closed.

I was still in too much pain & closed myself off from the world. Why couldn’t someone love me? Was I not good looking enough?

Not charming enough? Not funny enough? Or was it my job title?

The chemistry I had felt was infectious, but she only saw me as a friend.

Then I closed myself off emotionally & spiraled. I’m sorry you caught that end of the stick.

You deserved better, & I always pushed you away when you got close.

From the bottom of my...

The Casualty
———————
All I ever wanted
was to know you..

Your pet peeves & daydreams,
Your scars & sadly, your intoxicated extremes.

But, you ran way too fast
for me. I couldn’t keep up.
“Slow down!” I’d yell.  
Running faster & faster towards my glorious hell.

In love I had fell.
Skinned knees & a dirty dress.
Nonetheless, I gave my best.

Unaccepting that you’ll always choose liquor over me.

Unanswered calls in the dark,
And what’s left of my naive heart, leaves me feeling cheaper than your bottle of Seagrams meaning you must’ve been just a reason or a season.

WORDS ARE LIKE KNIFE

Never have I imagined that the words FLAME, PASSION and INTIMACY could hurt.

Not until I heard it from your mouth.

It hurts so bad to the point that it brought back the pain from eleven years ago.

Different situations, same pain.

Suddenly, fear creeps in. What do I do? Should I keep trying or should I run?

Now it is over, there’s so much I would like to tell you. Something that I have found is that we try to figure out what love actually is when we have lost it, why? I think we can’t actually tell what love is unless we have lost it.

I want to experience our love once again, just to know how it was to be yours.

For even in darkness we feel serenity, peace, and You are your own blissful companion.

Thus not all light will show us truth.”

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.

Life Through The Eyes Of An Addict

Time Frame:
9 Months Clean & Sober

I take things to extremes
Its all or nothing and no in between
If it feels good I want more
I want something stronger than what I had before
I don't know my limits
I fuss and I fidget
in a desperate attempt to keep still
Was raised to think everything could be solved with a pill
I have a high tolerance especially for pain
I get bored when life feels too tame
I sleep too much
or not enough
I'm a complete control freak
I forget to think before I speak
Sometimes I romanticize
as I begin to fantasize
About how it would feel to go back out again
Take one hit, two hits, maybe ten

Born to over think
Heartache most wouldn't believe
Life's beauty angered me
A childhood trait
Now I've passed it to little B
I wish I could take away your pain
I'm sorry I just gave you away
Filling you with anger and shame
Then just walked away
The things I put you through were not okay
But how do you tell a six year old momma shoots dope into her veins
Because of it with Mommy Dearest you have to stay
Now you know an alcoholics pain
Perfect for abuse because your mommy abandoned you
I can see where you've confused love with hate
An how sometimes living an dying look the same
I see the hurt on your face
I promise there's more to life than pain
It's ok to keep your trust locked away

I woke up to a new morning. My wife was still fast asleep. Well needed sleep from her busy workdays. Rather not disturb her weekend sleep.
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.

I cleaned myself quickly and set out for a short drive. My Ford Mustang was parked in the basement garage. This was a good time for a short pleasure trip. Thought of grabbing brea...

पुकार

ऐसा ना कर तू, जो तू मुझसे दूर हो जाए,
मंज़िल पर भी जो खुशी मिल ना पाए|
तेरे नाम को ही पुकारू  सुबह शाम.
दिल में बस गया है जो तेरा नाम|
अब तो आदत सी है तेरी,
जैसे हो साँस तुम मेरी|
क्षितिज पर जैसे आता है सवेरा,
तुमने जीवन रोशन किया मेरा|
जो वो सितारे है रात में,
वैसे तुम हो मेरी हर बात में|
तुम हो वो बारिश जो मेरी प्यास बुझाए,
तेरे बिन मेरा दिल मुरझाए |
कब सुनोगी तुम मेरी ये पुकार,
मैं करता हूँ बस तुमसे प्यार|

Never have I seen a similar place where people really had their hearts on their sleeves in so many various ways. I loved that what was truely important wasn't your name or age but your feelings and thoughts. Hope there will be a continuation in the future and in any case I want to share a simple 'Good luck!' wish for your own future.

Dear friends,

After 7 years of bringing letters to the world, we now must say goodbye to lettrs, despite best efforts to keep it going.  The world has changed, where imagery dominates the the mobile medium.  The psychology of letter writing has changed too.

Thanks to everyone who was part of the lettrs experience. It means a lot to me, really.

Maybe one day we can produce a next generation lettrs, that is simpler and aligns more to how the mobile medium operates in the shallows.  

So please save your letters, as in a few short days we will close down this once beautiful place.

In lettrs,

Dear Drew,

Thank you so much for Lettrs!

The past few days have been unexpected and suddenly, it felt like the world I made for myself in this app seemed kind of lost. There were critics saying that the app is gone, but somewhere in my heart, I knew you and your team were out there, working hours to bring it back to us. I was praying, wishing it was all temporary and never have I ever before felt that void in my life, that I felt those days Lettrs was inaccessible.
It was like my daily ritual, first thing after waking up and the last before going to bed, wishing it was there, like before. And there it was!!!!!
I placed my trust and hope on you and I am so grateful that you gave us Lettrs, ...

We experienced a severe interruption in our service.  Over the next few days you will see all restored.  However, given the fragility of technology and the importance of your life’s words, I do recommend always having a back up of your wondrous letters.

If you care for lettrs, please do leave a positive review for us, and of course, do tell a friend.
