You could not be,
The one that,
I've always seen,
Walking past the,
Guidelines that,
Set me free

Just pretend,
You could get better,
While you're around,
Humming a rhyme

You could not be,
The one that,
I've had to let go,
Due to insecurity,
Leading me to nights,
With no sleep.

New found habits - Writing prompt

   Look at the world now, look how much it has changed. Do you remember how life used to be, before lockdown? Do you even think about it anymore? Most of us have gotten used to this life. The life with a mask, the life with restrictions on travel, the life with sanitizers and thermal scanners. This pandemic sure has changed a lot, especially in our daily lives.

  I for one, get to stay at home and work, which is nice in a way, cuz I don't have to go to office, I save on monthly expenses on food and travel, though rent is still being wasted, every month, but I've no choice. But this feels like the new normal. I stopped this and that, cause basically I can...

  Remember when Corona started? Remember how things were before we went into lockdown? Nobody seemed to care, nobody did anything, nobody was afraid. We all saw the news, how things were getting worse by the day.

  It was the weekend before Holi, I really wanted to go home. Like, I wanted to go home for 2 weeks. Mum's birthday was coming up, and I thought I should be home, it's been 2 months since I went home anyway. I was planning to take work from home n stay home for the time. But I didn't think I'll get such a long work from home.

  So on Friday morning, the new manager said, Tuesday and Wednesday will be work from home, like if you want to, you can. I immediately booked a one way tick...

Yolo people,

  I remember the time, that I used to post prompts week in and week out. Much of my creative edge has been lost over the last few months and Corona has only made it worse, in the sense a more lazier, lethargic me.

   It's been like 3 months or so since the lockdown first happened, and recently most places have actually opened up, maybe in light of the falling economy. I am one among many, who got work from home, and probably one among few, who prefer to actually work from home.

  In this writing prompt, you're to write how Corona has affected your daily life, some may have lost jobs, some may have to go to work, some love work from home, while some just want to get back to off...

   This is pretty much a continuation of last letter. I felt that, that required more of the immediate attention than this.

  I'm really sad, and really low. Two days ago, I got to know that, one of my friend's mum is diagnosed with brain cancer. I was super shocked to hear that. Like u had no idea what I could say to him anymore. Cancer is scary, but the timing is just horrible, with Corona all over the place. One whiff, and you know you're done for.

  I couldn't find any words to tell him, and while talking to him yesterday, I was saying, let's hope for the best and hope she recovers soon & got another news from him. That one of our mutual friend is diagnosed with cancer and he's undergo...

To whomsoever it may concern,

     Things are so messed up right now. I can't even think straight anymore. Been hearing too much sad / bad news in the last 2-3 days.

  I dunno if you know anyone who was tested covid positive, if so what did you do? How did you cope with it? Are they okay now? What are the chances of survival? I've no clue...

   This I got from a friend, about another friend / acquaintance mum. I know her, even though, I wouldn't call her close friend or something. But still, it's her mum, so I'll just paste the forward as it is... I can't do much to help, nor do I know if anything you do now will be useful or yeild results, but if there's a 1% chance, wouldn't you take ...

We were not young, when I first met you
I used to be the boy that chased hot wheels,
You used to be the one chasing burgers

Little did we know,
That today you and I,
Will be chasing same dreams,
Against all odds of fighting covid,
To make a plan that's seemingly impossible,
But it's okay

We have been through a lot already,
Ups and downs,
Break ups and make ups,
That used to light a flame

Burning bright,
Every night we do,
Each of us,
Till we seemingly collapse,
Gasping and panting,
After a night out,
Rolling in wet dreams

Little did we know,
That today you and I,
Will be fighting the same thing,
The distance between us,
Widened by covid.

Watching inspiring anime like Haikyuu

Doing random things n hearing a thank you or getting a smile in return.
When I order new hot wheels.
Talking to a cheerful lady love.

  Honestly, I don't know what I feel right now, when I'm back here. This place, that once used to be my safe haven. A place filled with beautiful memories. A place where I found a lot of beautiful people, from all across the globe. After Orkut, this is the one place that has given a similar vibe, of being unique and actually connecting people across the globe, with words and heartfelt emotions.

  I don't want this place gone, no matter what. I've just too much here. Stuff I never wanted to put on a blog, it's my personal space. I'll always be grateful for stumbling upon this place. N I've spent a lot of time here, and those were previous to me, I don't think anything new can feel the same. ...

  First of all, it's a relief to see that lettrs is still working. For that, thank you Drew, for I would never want to see this place go down, ever. Simply because, there's just no place like this out there. N as much as the footfall has fallen over time, it still remains unique in its own way. A special place for someone like me, to spill out everything, which Instagram can never be.

   I needed to write out a lot, and I've been defaulting to Instagram, but it's just not good enough, the space constraints are a bit too much there and it's too plain for my liking. So, I guess I'm back again, with fresh wounds that let's me bleed out, all the more.

   One last letter, probably. A last goodbye to this once beautiful place. Filled with beautiful memories & emotions.

I dunno what to say or feel anymore, as I'm writing this letter. I've always felt that, this place will always be there for me. But that's not gonna be the case, I guess. All good things must come to an end, and that's how things are.

  Thanks to Drew, for making this an amazing place. I just wished, he'd do a bit more to keep this place as it is. If only.......

   How this place has faded over time..... I'll remember the good times and all the lovely people I met here. All the letters shared here, are priceless. It'll have the feeling of burning a journal, as ladyo said...

   So how does it feel, to dump it all on me and make a run for it. I've never really hated anyone, and I probably wouldn't hate anyone either. I've always let go of things, as long as it's on me, I wouldn't give much of a damn. But if you involve the people I love and care about, I'll never forgive you. That's always how I've been. You can wreck me, leave me broken or heartbroken, but I'll still never hate you for it. I've never been the kind to hold out that much of a grudge.

   Yet, people think I'll hate them. Yet, people and like they've never known me. It's like I've never existed for anyone. It's like people see me, they talk to me, for days and nights, for weeks and months & still k...

I can't put this out,
The flames of flaws,
That engulf me now,
Chipping in soft,
With some guilty conscience

The soul is weighed down,
With thoughts haywire,
Who do I approach,
To flush it all,
In a full swing

Oh, someone save my soul,
Someone hear my plea,
Lead me out,
Lend me an ear,
Oh, someone out there.

  I still seek answers. If only I had time to figure things out better, with a little bit of space. If only I had time to analyze things and sort myself out.

  What do I need? What will I get?

Oh man, somebody shoot me!! Stuck in between the devil and the sea, ain't I? No amount of advice is going to save me or calm me down right now. For what I need the most now is, clarity and nothing else & what I have is, anything but.

I'm in a state of fix,
Trying to find a way,
Past all these obstacles,
Popping up day after day,
Hindering the slow progress,
That life used to offer,
In bits and pieces,
With no way to vent,
All the mist that clouds,
The very sense of judgment,
Be it right or wrong

I've lost it all,
In this restlessness,
Day and night,
Engulfing all thoughts,
Pressed hard by stress,
From all sides,
To choose from them all,
What would eventually be,
My right or wrong.

     It is always pain that makes me write. It is always pain that fills me up with abundance of emotions. It is when I can no longer take it, that I take up this virtual pen and keep spilling it all out.

  I'm overwhelmed with feelings. I don't know what I feel, or what to feel even. I just feel pitiful about my own life. I haven't quite reached anywhere, that I've dreamt of. I've not quite made it there, yet. Will I ever be able be someone who's dependable and reliable to anyone at all.

  I've given up all hope, by now. That I can get what I want, since nobody is actually on the path that I chose to tread. If only, I could set things right and have a clearer vision of what I need and see...

    Today, all I want to do is find a place to sit in peace, with nobody watching, nobody to disturb & cry my heart out silently.

   I'm feeling guilty and sorry for all the people who have ever gotten involved with me in some way or the other. I can't really make out, what has become of me. I'm questioning my very existence and purpose of life.

   Why do I stand here, at these crossroads, with no answer to any of the questions. What do I want? What do I need? What do I deserve actually? If only I could pick, I would have. But fate may have something in store for me, but if it's not what I want, what's the whole point of trying so hard?

  What do you live for? Is it love? Is it food? Is it...

I'm no saint,
I'm no good,
Please forgive me,
For not being there,
Though I never knew,
What you'd have to face,
In this life of uncertainty,
Wishing for calm,
The twists and turns,
Take you places unexpected,
In a life so meek,
Rendering you helpless,
The cries for aid,
Fall to deaf ears,
You're on your own,
Till world's end...

All this time, I was running away. Running away from people, running away from responsibilities, running away from literally everything. I never wanted to grow up, I never wanted to grow up. Although time has passed, adding numbers to the stat called age, I doubt if I've ever really aged, at least mentally.

   I dunno what my status, am I committed or am I single, it's like somewhere in between, with a thread that holds me, from doing anything in any direction. What exactly am I doing with my life? I want to run away from all this shit. I don't want anyone to be even connected to me.

The only thing I've learnt, over the past few years is that, I've to forgive and let go of things that aren't exactly in my control. People make mistakes all the time, and that's what makes us human.

  I can't ever say that, I've never ever made any mistakes of any sort. So how can I ever judge people without ever knowing the circumstances under which they've made their mistakes. Maybe they were out of options, maybe they felt it was necessary, or maybe they were just plain stupid. Whatever the reason, what's done is done. And if the damage isn't as substantial as it may have felt, maybe you can let it be and let it go.

We are only human, living life once. Why keep grudges, which amount to...

It was a dark night,
And I was again a stranger,
I can't believe that,
I've been left starnded again,
Let the rain come down,
And wash away my tears,
I've been crying all night long,
I stopped seeing the light,
That used to be guiding me along,
A new day may not come,
I can't believe I'm here,
After waiting for so long,
Trying to be so strong,
Through good and bad times,
Now it's probably too late,
The feelings you've had are fading,
While I stay here,
Wilting away like a flower,
A new day has come,
Take your step ahead.

So....that's it? That's how you want it to end? All this time, for nothing? Maybe  that would have been more apt, if you were asking this after two years, or at least that's what you'd have been repeatedly playing inside your mind on repeat for the past few weeks.

After all, we are both old, and reaching certain ages where family expects this and that to happen.

Wailing in silence,
Mourning for deeds,
Those that led to demise,
Of thy very self,
After each dip,
In the lake of fire,
Oblivious to the consequences,
By lack of awareness,
Or lack of interest

Leading to a spiral,
Of unending pain,
That slowly consumes,
Every ounce of your life,
Slower than a snail,
Till you start begging,
To be euthanized.

Have you been in love? Do you know what it feels like, when it hurts you from the inside, not because of someone, but cause of your own shortcomings. I would really like to apologise for that.

  I used to feel good about myself before, no matter what happened and how lonely I used to be, no matter how useless I felt, at least I used to feel that, I could be really good to people. But I guess I couldn't have been any more wrong.

I can't even sustain a relationship. I've probably felt too much emotions and that I'll be someone who never leaves anyone behind. No matter what ever happens. At least, I used to try to cling on to people as long as I could, till they cut me off by force.

Nobody has the time,
To stop and take a breath,
Nobody has the time,
To stop and observe,
All the things happening around

Patience is a virtue they say,
A lost one at that,
Those who seek a bit more,
Get lesser and lesser,
While those who don't need it,
Have it aplenty to waste

If only people would try to grasp,
How time is essential for everything,
How time makes and breaks dreams,
Maybe, just maybe,

So many questions,

Yet you'll end up,
Back in square one,
With no concrete answer,
To all questions that pop up,
While you are busy trying,
To make sense of all things,
Natural and unnatural

From this endless tradition,
Laid with traps that creep,
Deeper than all you expect,
Sinking per day,
Into depths unexplored,
Gasping for breath,
Till it all ends.
