Hey my blogging family,
I’m in seventh heaven today as one of my poems again got published on the literary collective GoDogGo cafe. Go check it out.
The sparkle in her eyes
as she sees him
the peaceful glean in her eyes
as he steps back in the household
It brings happiness
etched in her wrinkles
from her crow’s-feet
A new wave of life and energy
flows through her old veins
the flash of happiness
through her cracked lips
the glow on her face
can put the sun to shame
The eternal wait and
constant worrying has
finally, come to an end
the moment he walks in
Her whole world is there
right at the moment
He is her epicenter again.
Her old bones have been
re-energized with the flow of
her love and passion
her instincts have been resurrected
from the deep slumber, they were in.
she again becomes
the epitome of care
making her mission
to shower her love
and gently wash away all his pain
Well, nothing can compare
the ecstasy of…

Was your meeting a coincidence?
This post is in response to the Daily prompt challenge for the word
Born a thousand miles apart;
breathing a different world;
unaware of your existence;
a million lives apart.
Yet seem to resonate to the same tune;
heart swaying to the same rhythm;
sharing thought with just a glance.
There is so much different and;
Yet so much same.
Now our lives are intertwined;
We finish each other sentences;
We share the sunrise;
and the calmness of the dawn.
Merged in a single lifetime ;
Brought together by mere coincidence.
Whisper slowly into my ears, my darling those sweet little nothings don't let any word fall down don't let even air come between us my love has no bounds those sweet little whispers are only I have to show the world in my arms, you belong Whisper slowly into my ears, my darling those … Continue reading Sweet nothings
We, humans, have the proclivity to shut down emotionally in a state of emotional crisis.We all feel that we are safeguarding ourselves from all the pain and angst by keeping the help at bay and downplaying the hurt we are going through. It takes a lot of courage to open to someone and to share your deep emotional thoughts with people around us. We all feel very vulnerable by doing so, but are we really keeping us safe this way?
Cherish all the beautiful sunrises and sunsets in your life.Merry Christmas to my wonderful blogging community!! This post is in response to the daily prompt Cherish

What we really want in today’s world. Do we want companionship, passion, empathy, peace, happiness, brotherhood or just wanting to be accepted?
We always have a long list of things we want from everybody else but there is always nothing we can give to anybody. We read about grief and sorrow in all different form in this world and it kind of has made us immune against all of that.
We really have become completely immune to the human emotions.
We see a crying kid in the crowd and moves on.
We see a homeless person sleeping in the cold and move on.
We see people homes getting burned, loved one getting killed and gone in a second and we move on.
We move on and go on in our life.
Heading towards an invisible goal which even if we attain will never give us any satisfaction.
Once you achieve…

Can you ever fool your heart?
Have you ever try to fool your own heart? Sometimes we do.Sometimes we try to distract us from the sad truths of life. Sometimes we utter white lies to ourselves so we can ease our existence in this chaotic world. But you know, the heart knows.
It knows everything.
You cannot fill the gap of an empty heart with the feelings of fulfillment and abundance;
The heart knows how it feels.
You cannot fool the heart with treats and surprises;
The heart knows all our tricks.
You cannot fool the heart with whims and fancies of a fairy tale story;
The heart knows how to bleed.
You cannot fool the heart with a fake and empty smile;
The heart knows how to mourn.
The heart knows.
knows your desires;
Knows your needs;
Knows your fire.
You curb it and you shall die;
You curb it and you shall cry.

Hello Talees! (Yes for Lack of a better word..please allow me). It’s only been a minute but how I missed here.
How is everyone? And for the record none of the questions on this blogland is rhetorical. This girl seeks to hear from you.
This post is inspired by #16DaysOfActivism against Gender Based Violence that ended only recently. I would love to second someone on a certain platform who said 16 days was not enough by sliding in my voice.

And when the euphoria that came with the match left
He still wanted to “play”
He found himself kicking at her –
A ball he chose out of many-
Sealed with a ring of “Blue black” bruises

One of my favorite poem.
Reblogged this in response prompt Silent
Silences between the conversationthe most beautiful feelingThe pause where the world stopsbut the feeling flows eternally Silence of the heartThe rhythm to which the heart beats untuned with the chaos of the worldpaired only with him Raindrops are mute toobut touches you whole as they make a trail on your skinwashing the hurt away and cleansing your soul Silence in the beautiful moonlightflaming desires in the silent heartsThose unspoken vows keeps you entangled from the start Silence of the deep riverin the flapping wings of the butterflysilence in the middle of the nightin the deepest of the woodswhere you soul commune with the god Silence, it has its own languageThe most beautiful conversationIt will sway your heartOnly if you listen to it.
