*Boundaries*

There's a limit to everything. Yes. But in the case of human beings who decide these limits?
For you, let it be 'you'. Don't let the world set your boundaries, don't let the people make you doubt yourself. Don't let their words create a tornado inside your head.
Imagine the sun withholding it's energy just because some people don't like summer.
It's your life, your decisions. It's your wish whether to end something with a full stop, an exclamation or a question mark.
I know people offend, dominate, they even sometimes try to control but Darling in the end it's the ocean that demarcates.

*Search*

The leaves have FALLEN and I try to pick them up, one by one like the dead memories which my mind pukes, covering me in nostalgia. Gathering courage, I remind myself that even the sun sets BEFORE SUNRISE and so I say goodbye to my fears hoping that ONE DAY they might teach someone else, how to be fearless. I have waited long enough for my SERENDIPITY to happen, which will lead to what I seek. But now the wait is over, so I paddle the empty boat in the vast stretches of water in search of happiness, a LIGHT BETWEEN THE OCEAN, the dark ocean.

*Mattress*

You lay me on the mattress
made hard with the
late night mutterings
of people in 'lust', tired of heartbreaks,
wearing a mask of solipsism, finally.

That is all they can believe,
that is all they were made to believe,
that is all they can be sure of.

Two empty carcasses
and the mattress will be harder tomorrow.

*Asthma*

Breathe.
oxygen - carbon dioxide.
inhale - exhale,
I fail.
I am a fish
drowning in
the sea.
I am a bird
without
feathers.
Breathe.
inhale - exhale,
I fail.
your love,
your kiss,
running,
laughing,
anger,
leaves me
out of breath.
I am in
a war
with my body.
Breathe.
inhale - exhale,
I fail.
An inhaler
decides
my fate.
The lungs
support it.
What am
I doing?
Breathe.
Inhale - exhale,
I fail.
I am
in space,
with an
empty oxygen
tank,
the mind floating,
heart racing.
I close my
eyes and
ask myself -
"BREATHE!"
inhale - exhale,
i fail...

*WAR*

Bombs exploded
guns loaded
Terrifying cries
soldier dies
blood around
orders bound
boundaries set
greeds met
lives lost
what's the cost
strong heart
corpses in cart
hide behind
none kind
brown n red
all dead.

All pain
no gain
mothers cry
asks why
give reason
no treason
why fight
whose right
ask yourself
find oneself
one deed
all bleed
stop please
humankind pleads!

Dear Oorja Paul ๐ŸŒŸ,
Rain play
The clouds were gathering
As if some meeting
The were tensed and dark
And uttered too loud
Peeping thru the window
I continued with my plans
The weathered had lured me
Into down the road walk
My steps were slow
Eyes wondering
Senses were seeking
The best scenery
I felt a drop on my hand
And just like a piano keys
Few hurled on my skin
By the time I heard the notes
I was hearing the thundering rain
The shower was severe
My attempt was minimal
To escape it ...I feel
No time I was drenched
And I felt the water enter the skin
I walked with splashing steps
With no need of shad3
The meeting of the clouds
Was pouring down
And I was wet
Making a walk back
Couldn't diffe...

*Murderer*

The lamp hit exactly where I used to kiss her goodnight. That night a life giver surrendered before an inhuman life taker, a mother was lost.

The bullet pierced the shroud that covered the dead humanity. That night inhumanity murdered the inhuman, a father was lost.

The insuperable words choked the grey heart. That night the timeless inhumanity murdered my favourite lap to sleep on, a grandmother was lost.

The impartial acid burnt the prettiest face. That night the amorous inhumanity murdered my partner in crime, a best friend was lost.

So tonight
I wonder,
'Shall I be the murderer or the victim?'

Dear Oorja Paul ๐ŸŒŸ,

Haha

The upcoming rain
Thrashes the mood
To a world so serene
And Everything seems good
Splash of drops
Has witnessed smiles
And it's made sure u don't
Remain dry even a while

*Determination*

To achieve what I want
I let my determination haunt.
         I imagine a person working hard
     who has for the goal same regard.
He works 24 hours a day
'losing' is no option in this fray.
              So I work harder than this guy
              of course there is no time,
                      even for a sigh.

If I win my imagination creates another
and hence the achievements in life move further.
          
But if I lose I need to beat
         because I either win or learn but
                                         never retreat.

*Come back*

Yes, I don't miss you.

Not at 2 A.M,
when I am lying on my bed,
staring at that depression in the roof resembling the one in my mind.
I close my eyes and sing a song.

Not at social gatherings,
where I meet a friend of yours and suddenly your name pops up. I put that fake smile I carry inside me. Everyday, everytime.

Not when I open my closet,
where I see that royal blue jumpsuit
winking at me.
It too is resting in peace now.

Not when that song plays,
whose lyrics used to be your favourite.
I am glad that some things can be deleted.

Yes, I don't miss you.
I am accustomed to that - not missing you.

But then there are busy afternoons, a happy news, a fight with my mom and t...

Dear Tanmay,

Yes I agree that destiny plays a significant role in our lives.

I wasn't comfortable on the seat number 16. I thought of exchanging my ticket with number 3 but he seemed reluctant. So for the rest of the journey I made him my companion - Thomas Hardy.
"Can I sit here?"
With that 'yes' I agreed upon spending the next 4 hours with you. And now I know that you live near my college, you scored 92% in your twelfth, you went on a blind date last week, you like Aishwarya rai bachchan and Yami Gautam(indian actresses).
I know that you had a relationship which didn't work out. I know how you entered the girl's hostel and it was the craziest thing you ever did. I know that you were into ...

I am not 5'6.
I am not skinny.

My skin does not glow.
           It does not reflect the glittery rays of the sun rather it absorbs it's harmful ultraviolet rays.

My body is not the perfect shape.
              It is not markless and it doesn't fit into 34-24-34 rather it has its own curves and has imprints of god's creativity.

My hair does not fall perfectly on my waist.
         They are neither colored golden nor made smooth, silky and shiny rather they are sometimes wavy and sometimes straight depending upon the hairstyle I made before sleeping.

My eyes are not big and beautiful enough to catch everyone's attention.
         They are not underlined with Kohl. Winged or cat eye are mys...

*Your words*

It was love at first sight.
And I was lucky enough to get something that was beautiful from both inside as well as outside.
Your words wore the best suit, I have ever laid my eyes on and the hidden meaning stretched his arm like a loyal lover whispering in my ears, "I know you, Oorja!"
And he does!

He is the one who's sometimes content, sometimes enlightening, sometimes asking, sometimes sulk. He is vulnerable too but still exposes himself to every feeling, every emotion. He is a different human.

'Nobody understands me' used to be my patent line but it no longer is.
Did the healer read your words?

Dear ex,

Of course I miss you.
We had memories, good and bad.
I remember the nights in which we made love, how you poured the energy of your emotions in me.
I remember the days in which we comforted each other, laughing and crying.

Of course I miss you.
We had arguments, fair and unfair.
I remember how we fantasized a world of our own.
I remember how it was broken by that evil 'someone'.

Of course I miss you.
We had dates, romantic and adventurous.
I remember that blue dress of yours, the fragrance and the golden scarf.
I remember how I spilt hot coffee over you. You still have that mark!

Of course I miss you.
We had moments, sleepless nights and indolent days.
I remember how you grabbed ...

*BEAUTY*

She is a beauty when she gets up in the morning complaining how tired she is and how she can sleep for 12 hours a day without any break.
she is a beauty when she says that she is on a diet but eats a full pizza when in stress. how the cheese follows the traces of her fingerprints!
she is a beauty when she sings while taking a bath, the song which she didn't like at all, sometimes the pitch so high, sometimes low, mostly high.
she is a beauty when she cries over the death of her favourite character in the book, curses the bad guy and when I try to give her a hug, pushes me away.

Not all weapons are sharp, dangerous and noisy. Some are simple, calm and decent. Covered in layers of trust, hope and faith.

They are not aimed suddenly, they are time bombs. Impossible to diffuse. The red, green, blue wires are invisible.

They don't kill. They will hurt every atom in your body and the nuclei will ponder upon existentialism at 3:17 A.M. They will not target the heart but the mind first. They will make you insane.

Not all weapons are created. Some are developed with time. Made perfect with experiences. Every ruinous machine is one of it's kind. They change shapes, forms and styles.

They will give you time to think. Lifelong. You will have time to realize that you have b...

# The Someone #

There is always 'the' someone for you.
Someone who will be there every second and then will leave you for a whole day.
Someone who will protect you from the world but will give you deep scars.
Someone who will sing songs for you and then will seize your voice.
Someone who will make you laugh so hard and then will hurt you so bad.
Someone who will call you at night and say 'i love you' but will forget you in the day.
Someone who will admire your beauty but will averse your freckles.
Someone who will show you your favourite flowers but will only buy the thorns.
Someone who will hold your hand but will leave the red marks.
Someone who will listen to you carefully and will mock ...

#I Miss

I miss the nights when we used to sleep under the starry skies, looking at the the best hd view of the universe, trying to count the twinkling skies, finding beauty in old,patchy moon.

I miss the letters we used to write to the far-flung relatives, with beautiful handwriting, on colorful pages, making it impressive by avoiding cuttings and the laggard words, there was no backspace.

I miss the games we used to play, that left bruises on our knees, elbows and head, that gave us a bath in our own perspiration, that involved every child from neighbouring street and sometimes  the grown-ups too.

I miss the picnics we used to plan, a park, a sheet, a basket, a ball, juices and the rack...

I have lost myself. I have found myself. I have loved myself. I have hated myself. I have built myself, day by day, second by second. I have invested in me everything I had, everything I will ever have.
I always told myself to stand firm against all the problems like a wall. I did. I am strong but once in a while I realize that people are breakers. They will break you and then every atom of your body will explode into a thousand fragments of disappointment, hurt, sorrow, remorse.
you may hate your own bricks, your contents, your investments. you may find it all useless. The resolute wall becomes weak and there are no supporters. Your adjacent wall was broken long before by another breaker. Yo...
