Our relationship

like tiny thorns on a rose

Hurts on embracing.

#3 From My Diary: EMOTIONS UNDER THAT VEIL(12.02.2018)

I smiled
 We smiled
 It was an unusual
 twinkle I saw in your eye!
 You are good at hiding
 your feelings,
 I'm good at not
 acknowledging
 The fact that we both do care,
 From far even when
 We are inches apart;
 Cloaked like the emotions
 You've in your heart
 For me when I'm 
 All that you love, and
 when you're a part of me.

A writer’s plea: It’s what that lies within

IMG_20180208_140925.png

Need no sympathy

or pity;

It’s all about a ear

to our story,

Music to our beats,

Heart that bleeds

For the words that fall

Off our fingers onto

pitch black!

Stark white churning

memories within;

And if not this

Then just a simple thought

that springs within,

Small bubbles of joy

that burst

Leaving a smile on your face,

And at times like these you

end up saying Grace.

When the shadows are seen

and emotions are felt

And hearts melt.

That’s when a writer

has succeeded.

And as I said,

We need no followers

or sympathy

All we need is a ear

to our story

And a heart that melts and

a mind that wanders.

For my best friend

Dear best friend,

I met you when I had no friends
I met you when I was in a foreign land
I met you when I didn’t know how to blend
I met you when I didn’t know that you were there to hold my hand
I met you when I needed a sister
I met you when I was lost
I met you when all I did was just whisper
I met you when I wasn’t aware of the cost
Of our friendship that’s priceless
You’re my sister
May you be happy always &
stay blessed
I wish for you A Happily Ever-After
You’re a beautiful soul
I love you my dear woman
We’ll continue to rock and roll
And to this let’s just say ‘Amen‘.

Harsh Reality

We all are so gifted to have been born as a human. Why can’t all humans take it as a blessing and live life to the fullest, enjoy life and be happy and make others happy?!
Why is it so difficult for people to accept the fact that they’re the most blessed species and why are they permitting themselves to be mislead by demons that surround them and the demons that develop within?! Why can’t they yearn for a better life by inculcating love and happiness within for oneself and for others? When each and every individual accepts themselves to have been born for a bigger purpose in life and not for committing crimes and destroying ones own life and others. It is so sad and disheartening. We were given the best form, we should be so thankful to God that we aren’t born as houseflies and reptiles. It’s quite baffling to see the human population dig their own graves!

Random thoughts at night

618b9d713c557abb657ce281cbb2fbe1

I had a lot to share

But my mind lagged behind.

My hand wouldn’t tire,

While my mind continued to sleep.

A question lingered in the air

As I continued to write

That- “If her mind was asleep

who was her guidance

at this hour of the night?”

I typed & typed,

While my mind hibernated & wandered

Into lands of depth & wisdom.

I’ve missed this flow of words:

Of what my mind couldn’t understand,

As it’s not of mind to work

But to absorb & ponder

Dive in deeper & fly higher,

Over the mountains of love

& Rivers of joy.
