Thank you, maybe?

Do you remember the times, you would ask me what I need from you and I would simply say, Nothing. I've always been the same.
Maybe because, what I always needed was your presence, a small token of assurance that you are around. Because, a tiny affirmation, that you see me, acknowledge me, hear me from no matter where in the world, is fairly adequate for me to be okay.
Because, the sound of my name coming from you, twitches my frozen soul, runs fresh blood through my numb veins,awakens my breathe and makes me want to get up and move.
So, Thank you, maybe?

What You Drew

I need to lay my head 
On your naked chest
Accompanied by the comfort 
Of your blue sheets

I’m sorry for the stains 
I left there
Between the plaid print covers

I wear your clothes now
And wait for your return
Since I can’t feel your touch,
I resort to clothing that once belonged to you
To provide warmth 
And protect my skin from the cold air

Until your return
I will not feel safe 
Because in times of grave danger and distress
Your arms are where I run to 
A sanctuary of goodness and relief to me
And you are my favorite place to hide

With each joke I hear I find myself 
Pausing and looking to my side 
To hear your reaction
And see your wholesome smile
But then the sting of ...

Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood
- Marie Curie

But when your sweet distraction becomes your obsession and your worst enemy....
Life goes down the black hole and becomes pitch black.

This is the time to go back to the quote 'Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood'.

We learn from our experiences and aspire to reflect and become the greatest in our lives. For ourselves and for others. It might be the best worst distraction you ever had in your life but it is the one that brought in the most needed experience to make that imperative change in your life.

Let your life sing its own song, spread its wings and soar with pride!

Love
...

काला पानी, काला मन
काली है ये रात

पार करके आना चाहूँ , तुझ तक
मैं ये समुन्दर सात

सोच रही हूँ कैसे निकलूँ
यहाँ, धुएँ की बारात

कह ना पाऊँगी तुझसे
कभी मैं यह बात

सब कुछ निछावर कर दूँ तुझ पे
दूँ प्यार भरी सौग़ात

पर डर लगता इस दुनिया से
काला पानी, काला मन
काली है ये रात ।

When I first saw you, I had never seen eyes that seemed so lonely.
I reached out to you and gave you my hand so boldly,
A man shaped by misery,
Shrouded in mystery,
Tucked behind a crowd and a smile,
Unravel his charm and he'll make it worth while.

Sometimes I question everything
Like why am I hated?
Why do I bother trying when all I do is annoy people?
Why have I lived this long when I shouldn't have?

I often think back to year 6 when I had the chance to end it all
Yet I didn't
What a shame

Since maybe if I had I could avoid being a nuisance a presence of disdain.
Or to the time in Turkey where I could have jumped of that building
I had so many opportunities yet I wasted it

I'm sorry
Sorry for being alive for so long
For not dying
I know you hate me
I hate me too

But don't worry my time will come and maybe then you will finally smile at me.

Do you remember my name? And the fact that I loved to hear it in your voice. That occasionally when I called out to you, it was only so I could listen to you, say my name. That every time you called my name, I felt safe, I felt your assurance, I believed that you were around.
Are you around anymore? Will you not keep me safe? Will you not assure me that it's going to be alright, that whenever I would need you, you would lend me your hand?
Have you left already, moved on?

They sat opposite each other in a dim lit beautiful romantic restaurant.
Apart from the candle light, there was one more thing in between them. "Silence".
Not many words were spoken other than the taste of the food.
Even though they saw each other after days, the spark between them was lost. The silence between them was leading to the end of an era.
The hug at the end of the night was no more a, 'I miss you. Meet me soon' .
All it said without words was 'Goodbye'.

Dear God,

Henceforth, I just ask you to be with me. Because maybe, the only person I trust on with my feelings, is you. I apologize for complaining, for begging and for being angry at you. I learnt that we get what we deserve and never receive what we don't. So, no matter how much I wail, beg, offer or sacrifice what's not mine will never be mine. Henceforth Lord, I shall never ask for anything material for myself , maybe because I have no more wishes left also because I know it's just you who's will shall be done.

But just, stay with me. It's too dark here and I'm scared.

Your Child,

There is something empty, something missing inside me,
Just like the lock is missing its key.
Every night, I toss, I turn,
My sleep leaves, as my thoughts burn.
My heart chained in grief and sorrow,
Happiness is the only thing that I need to borrow.
I feel my stubborn emotions, rebelling to be let out,
But will anyone understand, is a thing they doubt.
My ears crave for silence,
All I want is someone who will understand my heart's chaotic violence.

You are not alone. In this you are not unique. We all come from trauma and the attempt to run from the pain. We are all the same and we all need each other to get better. A good friend related us to aliens, and non-addicts to earthlings because we are a group unlike the "normals." You'll always be an addict, but you don't always need to be controlled by it.

Tragedy too big to accept
Self medicated until it went away
Never saw it all go
The pain went, all that mattered
UNDER CONTROL
Too far, went too far and saw

Who's in control?
Quit to clear the mind
Found a stranger
Who am I?

Hi, my name is Niko and I'm an addict. I've been completely sober for eleven days and counting. I don't know who I am and it's terrifying.

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...

I can't afford to lose you, oh damn.
Let me be your hero, let me be your man.

How could I live, lady? My heart doesn't beat anymore,
Now it sings your name, doesn't let anyone through the door.
Come, stop me from dying, I can't live alone.
Let yourself to feel me, don't just be a coldstone.

I'm burning, I'm crying, it feels like I'm into a fire.
Tell me that you love me, help me, don't just be a liar.
Come and hold my losing breath, kiss me now forever.
Caress the kid in me, tell me, you won't leave me, never.

Just when you're away, I can feel the thunder....

Sit and stare, sit and stare
Pulling back her silver hair

As this white bowl calls her name
Her mind is scrambled; it’s not the same

She spends a lot of time alone
Obsessing with her collar bones

Staring at her bare reflection
In this world there’s no protection

There is no shelter from slanderous words
As if hatred against her marches in herds

People are horrid, they’ll say what they want
They’ll tease, torment, torture and taunt

Like society say, the thinner the better
She feels the whole world is betting against her

Every blemish and every curve
Gets pulled apart by hateful words

Her fingers dance at the back of her throat
This was always the part she hated the most

It’s good to think about life sometimes, we all are so busy in life, that we actually forget the beauty in this world that surround us. Every single moment, every single time, we step out of our house is a gift as well as a chance to make a difference for that day, for oneself or for others. After every tuff day after work we indirectly always learn something new. For instance, being more kind the next day or seeing a bad behavior and to promise oneself to never act like that because respect, should still be the first thing to put on while leaving home or to enlighten someone else day or by just  doing something good for oneself by hearing a favorite song or watching a movie.

Finally I am glad to see the difference I always wanted to see in the world.

From now on People with intuition will remain on the top in every field to control over people with intellect. Due to this paradigm shift in civilised structure, people with saint like wisdom will have power over all destructive force developed through intellect.

With intuitive wisdom, they will utilise this forces creatively for the benefits of mankind for its prosperity and sustainability.

There were many problems before in the world which need tremendous amount of sacrifices and men power to solve the problems. But with this one major paradigm shift all of them are going to solve with ease.

The true beauty in writing is often hidden away.

We make edits and changes in hopes that we can change what we perceive as imperfections.

Perhaps in a way we make these changes because we don't see ourselves as perfect so how could we believe anything we've written could be anything less.

Caking on edits in hopes of masking anything others might see as wrong or imperfect is never the way to express ourselves.

Writing should express the writer in the rawest form, as they are not as they are as a face in the crowd.

Believe in the beauty of your words and the beauty of the writer putting them to paper.

By having a huge friend circle one doesn’t even recognize if one has lost a friend. It’s when the circle starts to shrink that one realizes that one has been forgotten, maybe because the other ones were forgotten too. How can a flower bloom if one doesn’t water it? Tell me how?

Yet, one doesn’t have to always be there, to let someone stay (life is busy enough) but in those little moments when one has got time, showing some care isn’t that much of an effort, isn’t it? If one skips to water a flower for a day, it will not dye immediately, though it will dye when one has completely forgotten.

There's something so attractive about the people who are the opposite of what we are and those who appear to be somewhat like us. In the beginning we don't often think about it. We are drawn to them as they are drawn to us. With the excitement of the new find we look for those qualities we are most likely in need to work on in ourselves. Immersing ourselves in the opportunity to come as close to what we want to find in us we are temporarily blinded. There is so much freedom in enjoying those who have the qualities we lack.

जब सोचा, वो सब कितने ख़ुशनसीब है
तब पाया, यह तो सब अपना-अपना नसीब है ।

जब सोचा , अब कुछ कर के दिखाना है
तब पाया , अब कहाँ रह गया अपना ज़माना है ।

जब सोचा , आज कुछ लिखा जाए,

She is the flower never seen.
A blossom that opens and unfolds
and
blooms in the night,
in a far away place,
beneath the moon and the stars.

And just like that, I've been consumed the way a planet does when its star explodes.

Surprising, as I was the Sun and she, Earth.

Starting a project for myself as a tribute to Jen's lovely collection of stamps.

I will write a poem for every stamp in the collection. You can follow the concept and show some love and tag your poems #StampPoetry. Here's the first one.

1. Closer

A meet after long,
Two words and a kiss so strong,
The way we smell of each other,
And the beauty of this charm...

Our nose tiff and cute hugs,
An embrace so warm,
Those smiles and funny moments,
A decade passed of sorts...

A lifetime to begin,
A promise to follow,
Our story and its part,
So many years of calm...

A few words to sum up this bond,
Our beliefs which keep us going,
Trust, honesty and intimacy race,
Togetherness, a forever solemn......

Dear Drew Bartkiewicz,

I'd like to inform you about my campaign. Mental health awareness. Being an individual with schizoaffective bipolar type rapid cycling, I know it's a mouth full, I have lived with the stigma that society shares with mental illness. I often get looks, judgement calls, and bullied. I'm often misunderstood by my affect as it sometimes does not match my emotions or what I'm saying. So your app has been truly an incredible experience and inspiration for me because I do quite well with the "written" word. So with the proceeds I'm donating to NAMI which is National Alliance on Mental Health. To promote awareness and advocacy to those with mental illness and information for th...

Those bright young letters
You left for me
The ones you read
Didn't pen to see
Those endless reckless
Nights of storm
Those nights where my love lost its form
And pined for life for health for you
And dwelled with strength each day anew

The lips, the smile, the curve in them
The blush, the hide and seek so lame

The flash of glee, the ring, the chimes
The childhood and it's silly old rhymes

The school, the cupboard, the coloured chalks
The evenings back home, short li'l walks

You left me tender
Hard to see
your broken form
Li'l bride to be

Your cold, dead form
My bride to be

PROMPT : I'LL BE FINE.

I've been binge watching this show called 'Please like me'. And every episode starts with a different opening but always the same song.

It's called " I'll be fine" by Clairy Browne & the bangin' rackettes. The title already tells you what the song is about.

Now I want you to write a short song(or poem) to yourself saying it'll be fine. Then one day, when you need it, you can read it to yourself.

Tag your letter 'music' and leave a comment below when you're done.

Everything made sense!


Those stupid fights teasing each other
Never felt so meaningful

Those sleepless nights pouring our hearts out
Never felt so peaceful

Those mornings texts worked like alarms to wake up
Never felt so beautiful

Those calls during the day and talking nothing
Never felt so worthy

Until that one day you stayed quiet
Which disturbed me with the loudest screams in silence

and Everything made sense!

Bipolar

Moments of happiness
and wild fits of grief.
A mind imploding with
sudden sweet disbelief.

Eyes filled with tears
of joy and sadness.
Cheeks red and shying
away from madness.

A storm raging inside,
birthing ideas abrupt.
Making the poor soul
cruel and corrupt.

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 ...

WRITING PROMPT
Love


We’ve all been blinded by the blanket of emotions that comes from falling down the precipice of union into love. While we only have one word for it, the ancient Greeks in their pursuit of wisdom and self-understanding, found seven different varieties of love that we all experience at some point:

EROS (EROTIC LOVE)
MANIA (OBSESSIVE LOVE)
STORGE (FAMILIAR LOVE)
LUDUS (PLAYFUL LOVE)
PRAGMA (ENDURING LOVE)
PHILAUTIA (SELF LOVE)
PHILIA (AFFECTIONATE LOVE)
AGAPE (SELFLESS LOVE)

Choose one as your topic and use it as the title of your poem or short story.

Tag your letter, "love".

"Linda never truly knew her mother. As she was always very secretive about a lot of aspects in her life. Her mother would leave early in the morning and come home late at night. If Linda asked about any of it, her mother would simply say she had a long day of work.

One day Linda decided to follow her mother to 'work'. That's when she found out... her mother worked in an orphanage!
Linda hid behind a tree when her mother stopped, turned around and scanned the crossroads anxiously. What was about her job that was giving her so much stress? Why had she never mentioned to Linda her job profile of a social worker or an orphanage caretaker which would have made Linda proud of her diligent soft he...

The sky was lit with stars, breeze rustling through her soft golden locks.
He bent down on his knees only to see a pair of painful eyes swelled in tears and longing.  He closed his eyes knowing his calming words of mutual love will soothe away her pain.
Suddenly he heard her call a name...not his.  He opened his eyes and there she was running bare foot draped in ecstasy.  Till she melted in that strangers arms. "I thought you will  never come" she was laughing a...

He waited holding back strongly the entire drive home leaving his books in the passenger side.

The slamming door thrown by his hands stopped on footsteps that lead to the the attic.

His low budget office.

His sanctuary.

Her hiding spot.

Her most favorite place.

His that soon became theirs.

Retrieving his favorites and running up.

Triangular, tiny, scrappy, paint chipped off, hidden with framed pictures.

A ravens desk with a Manila lamp and dozens of cleansed decorative used plastic coffee cups.

His office. Her first place to look for him in His
sanctuary. Their sanctuary.

His gaze stops down at the spot stained with clay petite handprints when she tripped from running...
