Life's a mess, one void of stress
A perpetual emptiness, prohibits a start fresh
Of changing mindsets & flickering flames
Indecisively playing an uncertain game
A snap of fingers, a roll of the dice
A trigger to reality, breaking the meditative ice
A stealthy unpause,
Moving forward, unaware of where the roads go
Existing, while the rest perennially flow...

{Words: Chest,Glowing,Strength,Hole}

"

An uncanny epiphany struck me with clarity
Amidst this wholesome insanity
The passing of a distant relative
Lead to an atmosphere meditative

Acceptance, a stable approach
Defiance, a sentimental, often foolish reproach
Accept the inevitable, letting it sink in gradually
Defy the impending, and knocks you to your knees

The setting sun of a life, one final time GLOWING bright
Casting a soft red glow, a warning, providing foresight
Dips below the horizon not long after
Leaving behind memories, the blues of twilight

Swiftly, to a different dimension a kind soul moves
Leaving behind a HOLE in hearts, in the ...

Perfect disaster
-----------------------------------
Square rimmed glasses, sincerely floppy unmade hair
Carefully selected dress, perfectly curled hair
An aura of reserved confidence
An air of false indifference
A handful of faithful friends
A circle of parasites obsessed with split ends
An unmoving grit to move the world with words
Canvases and brushes atrophy hidden in wards
Nights rendered sleepless in a craze, chasing dreams
Silent nights, spent gathering courage to no longer hide
Carefree evenings spent with those closest
Pretenses and parties with those from friends which are furthest
Two different worlds of words expressed a...

"Not a Whirlwind Romance:A Pentoum"

T'was a lifelong partnership, was no whirlwind romance
Youngest of their grandsons was now married
Neither was it a holding of chance
For over half a century they'd been bickeringly happily married

Youngest of their grandsons was now married
Gazing at the retreating backs as one by one they left
For over half a century they'd been bickeringly happily married
Their camaraderie, apricity in times rather bereft

Gazing at the retreating backs as one by one they left
Tears pool in his eyes as each makes a hasty return
Their camaraderie, apricity in times rather bereft
a moment pain enticing as they gathered for their deceased mum

Tear...

   NEW YEAR REFLECTION

In 2016
I saw   death
I made  my best attempt at it all
I tried  to be better
I learned  that i can't always succeed with little effort.
I wondered  if I'd ever be able to make a change in my own self.

In 2017
I will try to work harder.
I won't procrastinate.
I want to use every second of everyday wisely.
I need  patience.
I hope the year does me good, that i do goos this year.

Dearest Friend,

I think of you as I write this. From where I am, I will sleep two nights and wake up to a new year. The anticipation of something big and breathtaking consumes me. You have become a part of my life, one that I chose.

They say "friends are the family we choose" and family we are. Blood may be thicker than water but words birthed by emotions and thoughts shared in depth in our writing bind us in ways blood may not be able to.

I wrote this letter to let you know that there is a piece of you in me that I've taken in the letters you have written. Whole as I may be, I am shaped by how others have touched me. More profound than I can ever explain, trust that nothing is random or...

"Agreeing to what's undisputedly true
There's a lot that you have to do
To do it right and with determination
To do it all without the shadow of tension
Is all I ask of you
in this year starting anew
Through this year, you must not lose focus
Dealing with it all with utmost patience
Your patience in yourself must not deter
Continue you must, to push your limits further
The goal you're set towards isn't a task easy
But the thought of the rocky path mustn't make you queasy
Hundreds facing the same competition
Your success won't be defined by a single examination
It is the preparation that you must grow through
A metamorphic transition, one of self discovery to go throu...

"Insanity"

Loneliness chips at my sanity,
My vision lacks clarity.
In a place so crowded,
By dozens surrounded;
Eyes look around, longing for acceptance,
The loss of this unrequited desire would be good riddance.
My vision blurs, the clouds of doubt begin to appear,
I cave into the storm, yielding to a habit of years;
Lips curve into q rueful smile,
The struggle has never been worth the while.
Why,yet again should let the messy cycle repeat?
The only outcome, my morale will further deplete.
My goal is clear before my eyes, stronger than the previous times is my resolve 
Worries and doubts in a sea of determination dissolve 
So, I chose to quit this dilemma
Having had enough of t...

#Writing Prompt: And so I fell..

Yesterday evening, on my way back from coaching, a stoplight turned red just when I reached, I started looking around and just beside me was a car in which A Father, Grandfather and the cutest baby were sitting. The baby was looking out the window, bored. I smiled at her and she started to look at me seriously. Her grandpa helped her stand and then I waved at her, and she waved right back,grinning, we made goofy faces at each other and the light turned green.. too soon.. I waved her bye and she was jumping up and down as much as she could.
I fell in love, on the go. Literally.

sophie allen is not a morning person. and definitely not a monday morning person. shutting out the beeping alarm she gets up from the warm confines of her bed and opens the window blinds. just great she exclaims a rain is just what i needed to add to my misery. how can anybody ever like rains? they're wet and messy and... all those curses seize as she remembers the rainy days spent with him. 

spending lazy rainy mornings  slumbering on the couch together, that prom night when they danced in the rain and afterwards, that stormy night when he told her he had to go... 

the chime of the doorbell wakes her up. the mailboy. pulling herself together she goes to the door...

#Writing Prompt

In the summer, she would wake up at 5 in the morning, Come over to mine, pull off the awnings
The sun streamed in through the window, I turned away, groaning and buried my face in the pillow
A good ten to fifteen minutes of her asking me to wake up, shouting in my face would reward her with me opening my eyes and getting up. We were two 10 year olds jogging and playing badminton in the morning, sitting under the shade of the trees and talking for hours and at times, sitting in companionable silence with the birds chirping their morning song.
We'd separate for half an hour to eat and bathe and then we'd either go play in the park or lounge around at each other's all day more ...

  "Living a Contradiction"

DRAGGED down by inner turmoil,
her empty eyes and quivering lips smile
She strives harder,
a FIERCE determination taking over
Her freedom traps her,
a hurricane of doubts drowns her
She tries her best to keep swimming,
Determined to be the one winning
Her own belief lost, her dreams a fading ghost
She continues to fight, for her loved ones deem it right
Afraid to disappoint, she thrives till her breaking point
In the eyes of her loved ones she witnesses disappointment,
She drowns,struck by a riptide of helpless sentiment.

"Falling"

You tell me I can't do it,
I agree wholeheartedly.
You tell me I'm a lost cause,
I let the VESSEL of my HOPE sink..
You tell me I don't work hard enough,
I think of giving up altogether..
My journey has just begun,
And I'm headed towards a better tomorrow,
A thought that bought on a sense on TRANQUILITY and held promise,
Now just seems like empty words strung together..
Denial would be futile for I won't believe my words..
Words you said cast a MAGICAL spell,
Into an abyss of self-doubt my self-worth fell....

The stage was set and lights were dimmed. The audience waited with baited breaths for her. An electrifying beauty was she and the most sensational prima donna of the time.
        She adorned the red fabric and same shade of lipstick,and waited for her music to play.
        She entered the stage on a golden carriage pulled by horses and danced to the tunes of joy.
                   She performed with elegance and grace,with finesse & perfection, leading the rest of the crew with ease. The audience were enraptured, one hundred pairs of eyes were fixed on her, captivated by her beauty, bewitched by her charm, unable to loo...

"Dear Sarah,
                    I'm not sure if I'm ever going to see you again. There's a possibility that this letter won't reach you and yet I write. I write in an attempt to let you know just how much you mean to me. The fact that we might never meet again,not in this lifetime anyway, doesn't stop me from penning down how much I love you and I know I don't get the chance to say it very often but I really do love you Sarah, and all the time apart does nothing but strengthen my admiration and love for you. And our love is what has kept me sane up until now.

Happiness is..

Finding a family in an app meant to immortalize words..
Lettrs has become a place where we find friends who are friends without any ulterior benefits..
A place so safe and away from the judging eyes..
An amazing platform for expression of the heart in words with a beautiful imperfection..

The full moon cast an IRIDESCENT glow on their faces, the DRAUGHT wind sent their hair flying every which way. They sat with their feet dangling off the cliff, the silence of the night filled with the sound of crashing waves and their echoing laughter.
     Old friends reminiscing the cherished times that THREATENED to slip from memory in the decade they’d been apart. The time away failed to restrict their conversation from flowing as they caught on the years of each other’s lives they’d missed & just like that, another memory was created.
