Your eyes were
Counting my faded
And newly introduced
Shallow silver scars

Like they were
Teardrops or
Crashing 
Amber stars

Like they were
Pale pink roses or
Tiny twigs embedded
In my flaking skin

Remind me
Of why you
Had to wake
Me up once again?

People tend to wonder
where the good souls have
wandered, forgetting how
they were rejected

Once embraced their
energy, now they've fled
into obscurity

Away from the light
that had shone bright
now embracing the
darkness of the night

We miss the good
only after it has
vanished rather than
not taking it for granted

Let me feel the warmth once,
Is all I feel for, 
All I breath for, 
All I need for,
When you look at me like that, 
Let it linger in me, 
Draw it out of me, 
Draw me into you, 
And hold me still, 
For you
Bare the way we wanted
Engrossed we lay
Feeling the warmth...gasping!!

Paradise
It's not long after
humanities retreat
pursued by aerial mushrooms
that life reclaims the
lifeless

Home of four
and unwelcome houseguests
released
mother is the true creator
in collaboration
like the patient tortoise
excused sterility
in obeyance to
natural order
emergent productivity
shelters a panoply
vibrant and resilient

A woman with many wings
wants to fly high
with or without someone
but
the problem is that the woman thinks more about
the society about the
short mentality people, what they will say
or
what I am doing is Right,
many things inside
that woman's mind, but nobody
is there to tell that woman
"GO
FLY LIKE A KITE
&
HIGH LIKE A KITE

YOU REACH SO HIGH SO
NOBODY COULD SEE YOU OR CUT YOUR FLIGHT.

-Chirayu!.

I love this! It resonates with me....

As a child, I was afraid

As an adolescent, I was sad

As a woman, I am furious

Across the lands and across the seas there is a place I believe you'll hear the bells
and see the light and peace be with you in the night.
I walk the hall with bare feet
and see a woman by the creek.
skipping stones and picking weeds and together we will meet under a tree
and on a sheet a basket near and a drink.  Hold my hand and touch my toe and off to another world we shall go.

   The sea beckons me
   Her kindred soul
   Captive
   To the rush of waves
   And tang of salt
   In which she lies
   Asking to exchange
   My freedom for hers
   Not able to see
   That her teal tides
   Contain the anchor
   That holds her
   And I do not have
   The strength
   To set her free
   Nor dare I, If I could
   For fear of stealing
   Her beauty from the world.      JD

There are three questions every woman should be able to answer yes to before they commit to a man. If you answer no to any of the three questions, run like hell."

"Does he treat you with respect at all times? That's the first question. The second question is, if he is the exact same person twenty years from now that he is today, would you still want to marry him? And finally, does he inspire to be a better person? You find someone you can answer yes to all three, then you've found a good man.”

In Limitless Universe
Every corner has its beauty
Buried with tragedy & truth
Just as me
Just as you
Just as everything
Faith lies Everytime
Hope leaves anytime
How strong you be
Who you always be
A new you must unleash
To fight against dark
To hold hope
To fix your broken dream
And this happens within heart
When you walk alone

Take some time.  Time for yourself. Time to laugh, time to cry. You need all of it. Explore all of the emotions that you are feeling. Don't hide from them.  They will only get worse. Face them, write about them, document them, and then move on. You will find who you really are and you will find your true strength.

Rely on your friends who are there for you. Laugh with them, cry with them, let them love you. Because your friends will be there during this time and after.

Do not let just anybody in though. For people will now try and treat you like their prey because you are vulnerable.

Keep your eyes open and your ears open and your heart open to only those that you are...

Every beautiful morning
Holding a fake smile
Standing in her blossomed balcony
With a hot cup of tea
Letting the sun to kiss
Her wound to get healed
And killing the pain in silence
That walks in with love...

i run with wolves,
warriors with softly resilient hearts
i hold hands with heroes,
my hesitant fingers bound in theirs
because they give me the strength
to rise above the fire,
to run among the pines,
to break glass ceilings
they teach me how to be patient
they show me how to be
brave

The sun, the moon and the stars
and the galaxy
talks about her beauty..

Like the dancing waves
in the sea,
that takes away all
the attention seeking it.

Like a painting she'd shine
Attracting many with
the belief that she hides.

Like those cold winds,
That brings with them
What's been lost for a while.

Like those fresh rains
adored yet untouched.

And that's how it works..
When she stopped looking for
someone else to find her,
She finally found herself.

Alchemy.
The strange and mystic art of trying to turn a mix of metals into gold.

A rumored hobby of Isaac Newton; understanding the gravity of his situations.

Life makes alchemists of us all.

We take our elements - the hard, the fine, the dense, the noble, and the untouchable radioactive- And we blend them. We try our hardest to mix them into something that shines in the sun. Something of value and beauty. While we know that Gold, in its perfection, stands alone, we still keep mixing. Like mad scientists making artistry of chemistry, we mix til it’s similar enough to be satisfied for one more day.
And when the luster fades, we start again- beautiful, mad, manic beings seeking after the s...

Maybe in an alternate universe,
Me and you are together.
Maybe the distance between us,
Was unable to keep us apart.
Maybe we go for those long rides,
That we only talked about.
Maybe the flowers you send are real,
And the kisses I send are not just smileys.
Maybe we hold hands and walk miles,
Understanding each other more through the silence.
Maybe my day starts with your forehead kiss,
And your day ends with my warm cuddles.
Maybe we watch you favourite shows together,
And sing my favourite songs in unison.
Maybe we both had the courage to,
Express our love to each other.
Maybe all these things were possible in this reality,
If only we both could overcome our fears.

Rise and shine,
A new day, a new dawn.
The same familiar mirror dance once more.

Tracing silhouettes,
Eyes darting,
Dark silence absorbing the room.

Fingers grasp at each inch of flesh,
Nails scratching,
Not breathing.

It won’t bend.
It won’t break.
It won’t budge.

But skin is not clay,
And no matter how much it is molded,
It will never be perfect.

It seemed that she was going through the worst phase of her life. Everything she used to believe was right turning out to be wrong. Still she didn't give up. She stood alone for herself  when nothing was in her favour. Her faith in herself was the only weapon for the battle of life....

Doesn't matter how good you look if you are not as beautiful inside.

Because a Ferrari without an engine, is just a Ferrari without an engine.
