Time for something unusual.
I love photography & I love seeing pictures too and nowadays you don't really need a camera to click a good photo, after all we all have a 'smart' phone in our hands.
So this week, I want you to click a photo, anything you want to click, from a beautiful landscape to a busy street, and then write a few lines about it. There are no restrictions or judgment, click anything you feel like and share.
Write an open letter in a few lines and attach your photo with it, the letter can be anything which you can relate with the photo, I'm your own imagination. Tag your letters with "myphoto" & add an another tag, which should be your country. For example, I'll add ...
Sometimes I don't quite understand what I feel. It is this sudden sensation of nothingness. I wonder what the root of all problems is, but never quite arriving at an answer. Where did I go wrong, that I lost my life, and I'm still trying to pick up the broken pieces. I was alone for most part of my life and I was carefree, didn't really need to exist for any reason at all. The only people that mattered were my parents, after all I can't go and kill myself and cause em shame and pain, can I? Never, that won't do.
My life still ain't set up right, the last mess left scars and left life in ruins, every time I took a new path to set on a fresh start, I would eventually hit a dead end. Maybe ...
I'm now a pile of mess,
Rolling down a slope,
Aided by nature,
With a pull of gravity,
A free fall of sorts,
But ain't pitch black yet,
There's still hope,
I still see a glimmer of it,
Calling out to me,
Instilling me confidence,
A sweet soft voice,
That led me on,
Now I'm rolling,
Hoping to not fall off a cliff,
But to find a hole,
Where I'd fit in,
With no gaps left,
My perfect place,
Missed and longed,
My home, you.
I'm already lost,
Bracing myself now,
For incoming turbulence,
Followed by Utter chaos,
Where are you now,
My lil speck of light,
Where are your rays,
That shine light on me,
You're deeply missed,
For I'm an empty shell,
In your absence,
I feel just nothingness,
A deep black void,
Staring right at me,
With an evil grin,
Calling me over,
To the dark side,
Can I resist,
Of falling free,
In this endless put,
Can I fall now,
Hoping you'll catch me,
Holding on now,
At the very edge,
Please save me now,
And come back quick,
For I'm waiting here,
For your great return,
You have even left.
Skylark challenge #83
One day before sunrise had fallen, I was walking on a perilous path. It was said to be forbidden, cause the illusions of light between oceans were enchanting. Half way into my path, I finally understood, this is Serendipity.
Hello there human 🤷♂️, I have a prompt for you, if you are looking for something to write and have no clue what to write. Of course anyone can write, no rules or anything on this one.
You may be new, you may be old, but if you're still here there must be some reason behind it. Today I want you to write what that reason is, it can be anything really, some people might just be venting, while some just love to write, and there can be a million other reasons why you're here writing on Lettrs.
Lettrs has been like a home to me and I end coming here all the time. Now it's your turn to tell.
Write an open letter telling your story, why you write here on lettr...
To you it has been given to discern what you hear
As you look, you see fresh starts and new beginnings
A surprise awaits you in the distant and near future
Discovery of who you are will propel you into your focus
The plans and purposes of God toward you shall not fail
He longs for you to move ever so closer to His love
He likes how you are made, he exclaimed "perfect" when He did.
I have been thinking about this for a few weeks now actually, to put this or not. But as the days pass, it gets worse and worse around this place and it actually pisses me off, seeing how all these people around me are.
Patience - they say "Patience is a virtue", I guess it is, and if can't really be found anywhere these days. In India especially, when traveling on road, you should see how others drive & keep pushing themselves into the slightest of gaps they see, without even thinking. And we wonder why deaths & accidents are on the rise in the country? This came into more prominence on my mind after I saw how people actually follow traffic rules outside of India. It's the same with queues...
I see you,
Through the obscura,
Formed of blurred lines,
Forming the silhouette,
Of curves and shapes,
Of the beauty beneath,
Veiled from the outside,
Protected from the world,
For only me to see,
For only me to feel,
In the darkest of nights,
And brightest of days,
You shall forever remain,
Scatter me around,
Let the waves of tomorrow,
Wash me away
Sprinkle me now,
With holy water,
Wash my sins away
I'm but a spectator,
Walking a treaded path,
Holding no speculation.
5 months eh? That's a pretty long time these days I guess. But the funny thing is time sure flew by, omg that's scary and awesome at the same time. It's like it's just been a few days since we met, but then again it's not.
I already know how it went last time, 3 months uh, so this sure is a milestone I guess. I'm confused and stupid at times, I don't even have words most of the time to describe how I feel.
Love isn't all flowers and butterflies, sometimes it's thunder and lightning as well. It's not smooth sailing, and that's what makes this an awesome ride I guess. Some days it's so much of love, that I can never express in words what it feels likes, just butterflies inside. And s...
Even if I don't believe in anything else in this world, I still believe in us. I believe that we are meant to be.
What's with this emptiness all around?
Somethings amiss right now,
A million questions asked,
With a million more answers available,
Yet still left unanswered,
Is anyone to blame,
For the clock ticking so,
Or is it a test of fate,
For mental fortitude,
The path lays gloomy,
With a tragedy,
Every twist and turn,
I sit here and pray,
For a twist of fate,
Holding on to myself,
Keeping the faith.
Tomorrow is Good Friday in general for everyone all over the world, so have a blessed one and a long weekend :)
N it so happens to be Vishu, sorta like New year for all malayalees so, wishing all of you from Kerala, all over the world a Happy Vishu.
It's also probably one day all malayalees look forward to, after all you get some money in the form of Kaineetam 🙊🙈😋.
Good night 🌃.
I guess it's passion week, and today is Maundy Thursday ha.
Wishing you all well & a blessed maundy Thursday :)
Sometimes I feel like just killing myself.
Oh, don't get me wrong, I'm not talking about suicide at all, that's the last thing I'll ever do.
Sometimes life feels so hard, everything seems to just go wrong, whatever you touch or do, turns into one big mistake and trying to fix it, makes it a bigger mess than it already is. It's pretty depressing, going through that kind of shit.
All I want is someone to talk to, it's kinda sad I can't find anyone anymore when I really need it. People will say they are always there and they probably always try their best too, so I'm not blaming anyone anymore, it just is fate or say bad bad timing. At least, there's writing to keep me company, this pa...
Sometimes days just go so bad that, all you want to do is go sit in your lonely corner and cry. It's not anybody's fault, but the flow of events & the timing just weren't right.
Writing is a form of art, the only one that anyone pick up. All you need is a paper and pen, coupled with a set of emotions & voila, you're now a writer.
Love & Darkness
They never met eye to eye, yet were wild in love.
There was sunshine and rain, followed by darkness.
Falling in love was truly magnificent.
Something that reciprocated from both.
This was no fairytale nor taken off a movie.
This was very real, frightening real.
Love at it's purest and most beautiful.
Yet the same love at its ugliest and messy.
Love isn't all Butterflies and magic.
There is darkness and confusion too.
You can't fight against it or prevent it.
Just embrace it, as part of the deal.
Darkness will pass by every now and then.
But love stands Victor at the end.
We all love music, don't we? And we connect with songs in ways we never can manage to express. That's the beauty of music.
Remember the time when A R Rahman won an Oscar? That was probably one of the proudest moments ever for us Indians. And recently dad said a song form the movie Roy won some award.
Write an open letter, choosing your favorite song, by an Indian artist and tell us why you love it so much. Also, do add the name of the artist and album or movie title so I or anyone can find the song, if they feel like listening to it. Tag your letters, "music" & "fanmail".
Your letters will be tweeted to the artists. So keep it short enough to fit in a single page, you can ch...
I have given my heart,
Cause I know,
It'll be safer with her,
Than it'll ever be,
Cause she loves me,
I ever will.
In the dark of the night,
I look into the skies,
A night of the starry skies,
With a blot of moon,
A sight to behold,
The mind lost in transcendence,
Wishing for one last thing,
A dreamy shooting star,
Measuring the lengths,
Of this unending sky.
Ya right. I honestly don't think there is any humanity left in the world, at least not on a large scale. There will be glitters of hope here and there & that's about it.
In ancient times, fighting, war and all were to capture kingdoms and become huge empires, at least those were the wishes of the Kings. The battles were mostly between two armies and it all made sense at least it you look from their point of view. On a general, the casualties only went as far as the soldiers, and not the civilians, of course there will have been bad kings and bad men among them too, but in general it might have been much better than today at least.
And now? In this modern day, what's the...
It's time for another prompt. Maybe time to get to know more people and their languages in India, I myself am not sure how many languages exist is our country, so here is a prompt for you all just to show it off.
"My mother tongue"
English and Hindi will be the most spoken language in the country, but that doesn't make it your mother tongue, so why don't you write something in that.
Write an open letter, which contains one quote from your mother tongue, cause sometimes when you translate it to English the impact is lost. Also do write the translation of the quote in English under it, so all can understand.
Tag your letters, "India" and "" and do leave a co...
