Time lapse

It is the tale of the time
when our love was new and our egos were small,
When my heart would beat and next your name appeared on the screen
When on issueless strifes,
we would not mind spending sleepless nights
When my heart would sink on your week long absence.

And today we are here, not sure either our names are in any of the drawers of the heart or not.
Digging out the pasts and wondering either we were or not?
What a paradox of time;

we now are,

but we never were!

THE SWAMP

The swamp.

That with each taken breath was getting

blacker and danker and darker.

Her hopes mixed with miry water became

 

saline and murky and unsavoury.

Her eyes brimmed, looking for someone familiar . Her mouth gasping, tasting her last words.
A sudden warm touch.
A man with a face so beautiful that it made her heart

beat and melt and dream.

He handed his hand in her hand to free her off . Their fingers

locked and interlaced and warm.

His eyes. They were more captivating than his beaming face. No one can escape the lure with which they weave the stairs to the dreamland.
That dreamland that had
lush green

trees and brooks and breezes.

Treading on that land i came across the gateway to his heart that was clasped with

wires and chains and rust.

She tired herself out unlocking that door with all the strength she could muster. But the door had iron locks and his heart had iron will.

She returned tangled to her swamp-land which was her

Fate and home and destiny.

Polluted Silences

We have talked about all kinds of abuses but one that goes un observed and thus un recognized, is the ‘abuse of silence’ . We are a generation where we have suffered alot at the hands of communication gap and i guess we will ,for the years to come. Further aggravated this situation, is the boon of social networking where we think by posting and hash tagging we have dished our hearts out and every one has savoured whats in our heart. But the the truth is Our Silences have become heavier than before , we are craving to be understood by people who love us or at least by the total strangers. Inability to be understood is directly related to our lack of connectedness and communication. We are afraid of saying what are silences are shouting. Or maybe we are too afraid of listening to those silences. As a result they die an un natural death and lurk in the air and are causing global warming. I know it sounds ludicrously unscientific but where else should the heat and fire of our unsaid words and larger-than-life emotions should go? We have to pay ,our planet has to pay for the polluting the sacred silences which are supposed to be cherished and sanctified instead of being antagonized and polluted.

Communicate!

Unfortunately we all are the victims or we all might be the naive abusers ,in either case we all need saving. Spot the abuse and save yourself and do earth a little favour.

Here’s to the hearts that break 🍸

We are really a generation without emotions. Many a times these emotions are curbed to a level of non existence. We are told of ‘larger than life’ love in dramas, novels and movies but we can’t see that love around us. So uninformed we are when it comes to experiencing such a terrific force nurturing within human soul. Instead of explaining that ,we have become so good at mixing things. We mingle love with lust, selfishness, immaturity, crudity, madness. Along with real life love stories, we should have been told about real life heartbreaks. We should have been told it is something which will be healed. We should have been said to savor it ,for it is the only magical component found in the human soul. We should have been told it’s the only element which connects soul and the body. The only constituent because of which you are experiencing the Now. The now which you might not feel in decades. The glory in breaking of heart is equally celestial like that of the love itself . We should learn to cherish that.

It’s better to reign in hell!

Back long ago when i was very young i heard this saying” if all the tress become pen and and all the oceans become ink, you can not praise God enough “

And honestly speaking i used to count on my finger tips all the things that i could praise God for and that was for sure
” countable”.
But today i realise no body would have given a thought to explain things to kids in a right way back then. Especially when it comes to religious sayings nobody ever dare to temper them a bit and i dare not to ask them?
If i ask them now ,what do you mean by praising God? The answer is pray as much as you can, recite Quran as many times as possible  (and that could be without translation even).
But nobody told me to know enormity of the sea of knowledge, nobody told me to venture into various subjects to measure the vastness of God’s existence. Nobody told me to listen to the tunes of musical instruments to hear the hidden notes of human hearts. Nobody encouraged me to question God’s existence, so i believed everything what they told about God. I praised Him for the things they praised Him for,  i feared Him for the things they were afraid of and also asked forgiveness for the sins that they commited. And for a longer part of life was concerned about the hell that exists somewhere and did not bother about the hell of the cage that my mind was becoming.
It’s still hell today. But it’s a hell i choose to live in.

Gypsy positive 

An artist’s soul has gypsy blood. It may resist its urge to step out of room for days but it becomes restless with the same soil beneath its feet. Soil of happiness. They are lured with the crackling sound of laughters, the belly hurting jokes told by nearby friendz group make them envious. But as soon as the happy melodies start making home in their hearts, their heads signal them the warning of some malignant intruders entering the territory. These gypsy souls long for displacements. Neither they settle permanently in the hearts nor on lands. The soil of familiarity contrasts fiercely with their painstaking unfamiliarity. Their dwellings are there where pain resides.These vagabonds and wanderers drift across lands and hearts with equal wildness. Wanderlust is so visible upon their hands and heads. You can see fumes in the shapes of rectangular books and square shaped paintings, dome like songs and heart shaped tunes.

 They are naively reckless.

Sometimes only way to refute sweet lies is by confronting them with bitterest of truths.

Sheis a woman. She sacrifices. She is loving. She is the companion.

She will still be a human.

magnanimous is born. Similarly pains, 3:00 ams and tears were created so that
human hearts could wake up to another day.

That’s amazing, that as we grow how masterfully we learn how to hide the way we loved, the way we were loved, we erase every trace of it from our eyes as well as from our conversations, how more we talk about everything that is not about love.

I was never interested in four-walled bound love, i want it to be emanated ,
resonated and echoed from every action, every word ,every silence,every smile
,even from goodbyes.

times.

your life’s chapter, the best thing you can do is part the ways. Find your
reasons for happiness and let them find theirs, life is too short to extract
happiness out of illusions.

to commit to anyone or anything.

Sometimes you want to keep someone’s memories in your heart and mind forever because, you want to live in someone else’s life forever , you fear karma. You don’t want to believe that there exist a fate where you will be forgotten. And you can bear

being sceptic about your own existence.

replacements.

Love Your Ex to be. ❤
