Remembrance

His dormant social networking profile is a grave. I don’t wish him ill, it is just my way of telling myself that he is no longer ‘alive’ in my life. And when I miss what we were and what we could’ve been, I grieve by going to his grave and remember all the memories that…

Thank you 2016

Dear 2016 – Thank you for all the wonderful experiences – some perhaps the most challenging experiences I have ever faced in my life. As I part ways with you, I remember how I fought and blamed you for all the pain and mayhem that I experienced. I was wrong. It was only when the…

New year and resolutions

This print in ink Reminds me to revisit The crossing of another year gone Another one to come It’s the same excitement, the same nervousness What shall the new year bring with it? The promises I made – I make again this year It’s not just the turning of a year, it’s milestone of 35…

Overreaction

In my endeavor to be normal, happy, and accepting of all situations, I suppress my emotions and rarely express my mental state – especially at home. This habit of not reacting makes me over-react at times on the most trivial of issues. Today was one such day when even a wise advise given by my…

Moving On. Really?

Can you ever really move on? The glance, look, persona, voice, attitude – all bundled up as a memory unforgettable. Psychology and reality aside, likeness to something or somebody without knowing anything about them is unexplained and beautiful. You never really know what you want till you see it and like a flash of lightening…

An Obituary

They were not failures – those who ended their lives We are too comfortable in our lives to understand No they didn’t attract sorrow in their lives They wanted to be happy, just like you and me They didn’t live for themselves, they had responsibilities Before you judge, know their stories, put yourself in their…

Shinning my gold

Building the castle Painting the walls Sewing the drapes Decorating the rooms Laying the bricks Planning the event Inviting the guests Throwing a party They join and leave for their homes I’m left alone in this house that I built A dream fulfilled but a lifetime passed by Yes a house it is but of…

I don’t ever want to fall in love

I don’t want to fall in love like this ever again I don’t want to feel the excitement that brings so much pain later I don’t want to dream to only have them shattered again I don’t want to cause discomfort to someone else for my need to feel loved I don’t want to hear…

A leaf of hope

We were born alone and will die alone, it’s how we live that matters. What do people think of you? Why care? They can be judgmental about you for all they want. If they cannot take away your pain, do not allow them to takeaway your happiness either. Live as if you were just born,…

Of perceptions and realities

They lust and don’t love They love thy body, not heart They want pleasure, not emotions They like the attention, not responsibility They want to be happy at the cost of thy feelings They will drool, yet will call thy unbecoming They will enjoy thy innocence, yet treat you with contempt O’ loving being – learn…

My imaginary friend

I wait to see you in my dreams I sleep the whole day waiting for you to arrive You are nice, polite, and patient You have the wittiest of jokes to crack I can cry so freely before you, you are never judgmental Don’t you get tired of listening to me? How can you just…

I Shall Celebrate…

I don’t know  when you were born But when your birthday comes, I feel I would just know I want to feel what it feels like to plan and celebrate the birthday of the one  I don’t have to be with you, know you, or see you to celebrate that day I want to just…
