Slips right between conversations
hide behind the smile
comes to see me
in broad daylight
just waiting for
a single text
a photograph away
under my skin
lives in me
but doesn't pay rent
if I am at
or in my private space
Like an old
It fills me
and leaves me empty inside
Like first rain
It takes over my senses
until I am drench
as memories cut through
It leaves me numb
make me do
things I won't do
leave people I love
hurt them with words
once used on me
As it breaks me
Black dog, black dog, jumping on my bed.
black dog, black dog, get out of my head.
black dog, black dog, always wants to play.
black dog, black dog, never goes away.
Hush now, hush now, he mustn't see me weep.
hush now, hush now, putting him to sleep.
hush now, hush now, the time is almost come.
hush now, hush now, and so, the deed is done
Black dog, black dog, i cannot hear you bark.
black dog, black dog, laying in the dark.
black dog, black dog, i know you're still around.
black dog, black dog, until the end, we're bound.

Why are you still in my mind, soul and every where?
Why do i think of u all the time?
Why I can't forget u when it's the most important thing to do..
Why I just love u even when u dont?
Why you had to leave me at my most important times..?
So many why's which apparently has no answers know...
Which apparently took everything out of me.. And know I'm empty..
So tell me,
where should I go?
To the left,
where nothing’s right?
Or to the right,
where nothing’s left?
Hey! Hope y'all have a great day today.
Well, bullying seems to be so much fun right? But have you ever thought about the kid who's getting bullied. People tease them, crack unpleasant jokes on them, make fun of their bodies and sometimes, even undress them. You can't even imagine the pain behind their cries. Their beautiful smiles fade away. You keep on bullying others but you don't even imagine the aftermath of it.
If you're brave enough to do such things then use your bravery in doing something great and not bullying those kids. Just because of you Lunatics they start hating themselves, they cut their skin, they suffer from mental illness and sometimes even suicid...
I wade through my memories of you.
Me, your biggest failure,
And you, my loved stranger,
Though our paths separated long ago,
A piece of me still follows you,
Bound by unspoken promises that were never to bloom,
My mind you consume,
I'd surrender my sanity for just a glimpse of you.
Picture a door, proverbial at best.
Picture locking that door, then bolting it, then barricading it, then building up around the barricade.
All done with the intention of keeping people out of your heart.
Picture someone finding a window, proverbial of course.
From it, a dim glow of light casts dancing shadows in the recess of her mind.
And while the window cannot be breached smoothly, it can and is breached.
And all of a sudden, after a lifetime of a sojourn in solitude and after a drought of human warmth, love lights up the whole room.
This love was strong enough to melt away the barricade surrounding the door.
This love was stable enough that she had never felt more reassured...
Sexual assault on women is a common phenomenon in our country. Under sexual assault comes; molestation, eve-teasing, child sex abuse, rape, marital rape, domestic violence.
Of all these crimes, Rape is the most violent crime which is committed against women. According to Section 375 of the Indian Penal Code, Rape means an unlawful intercourse done by a man with a woman without her valid consent.

This needs to be stopped....
Women are wonderful daughters, sisters, wives, and mothers. They should be loved, cared, respected a...
Here I sit
in this broken house
slowly becoming nothing
no longer with capacity
to hold two souls
With unfulfilled dreams
on the walls
and the occupant's skin
The copious ink,
that flows through my nib,
Is a bit too picturesque,
Am amazed to look at it's red,
When the first thing I see,
Are the faded blood stains ...

Over my thoughts
As ripples and remnants
Settle over my heart
Like moon-glade on the lake
Of phantoms and shadows
Refuse to move on
For what I didn't do
Or what I could have done
Before you were stolen
And all chance was gone. JD

Finally after many years of pain, heartaches, loneliness and sadness.

She again had to let go her kids and go with her new husband to his house, she was assured that soon her kids will be with her and she can live with them happily in her new husband house.
God made beautiful world and in that world made beautiful people but those beautiful people be...
What to do with those who always poke you by saying "you are ugly "!
What to do with them who always bitching about you !
What to do when they are making a lot of bad memes of you of your random moments without asking you and making it viral on social media!
But you always take their calls and answering them in WhatsApp for making their future bright,ruining own life.
Please, for the sake of God ,don't upset.
They are temporary and their post too.
After some time both will fade.
Don't allow them ,to use you like a use n throw person.
Don't pick up their phone and block those contact , whom for everynight you woke up by getting panic attacks.
Break the rules.
Be alone but be the...
How can I express me, my feelings to you I don't know .
As I know , you have got your new girlfriend ,and you are happy .
At least you are happy , that's enough for me .
You know I felt that I love you when for the first time I saw you.
I do think , you liked me but love!!
Really I don't know ..... In my society it is easy for a boy to propose her girl but you know when I was passionate in you ,it was not easy for me to say my words to you . I always afraid of losing your friendship.
See now ? We are not at all friends . We are now strangers.
Neither we were good friends nor my love was strong enough .
It was a silly infatuation , timely I don't understand .
But you know now sometimes I remem...
It hurts when someone come close to u and
Than start ignoring you later
It hurts when they say they love you but
In reality those are just words
It hurts when u start falling for them and
They take you for granted
It hurts when you understand everything and
They don't have time for you
It hurts when u think love can be given another chance but
Everytime they prove you wrong
It hurts when life long you wanted onething that was love but
YOU didn't got it
It always hurt
She is used to faking a smile and pretending that everything is fine.
She is used to being the strong one; the one who is there for everyone.
Rarely does she falter, there with a shoulder to cry on, ready with a sympathetic ear and the best of advice.
But who is there for her?
Who is there to listen to her problems?
Who is willing to hear the fears and insecurities that keep her awake at night, and help lay them to rest?
Who can be strong for the strong girl, and give her the chance to come undone, knowing that there is someone to catch her when she falls?
In the darkness of the darkest night, who is there for her?
This time next year
The departed in my life
Will have faded
Into the background
Like the fleeting remnants
Of a summer storm
Their memories returning
Every so often
Like whispers on the wind
To remind me
That they are gone
But not forgotten. JD

Today was a hard day.
Last night was challenging too.
Last night, a guy I don’t ever wish to remember from my childhood popped up in my Facebook notifications and my heart stopped for what felt like eternity. I went to his page to block him never to think of him again, and noticed that my older brother and his girlfriend along with a very good family friend who I consider a brother, were friends with him on Facebook. That’s how he found me. It’s got to be. Because my name is different than when he knew me and I don’t look the same.
The 3 people who went through this tough time when I was 8 years old with me, because of this man, are Facebook friends? Why? You can only imagine how I felt...
Yes, you are in love,
You must know this for sure,
You are in love,
Because you were dishonoured countless times,
Because your smile never made a difference,
You were heard but never understood,
Your efforts were only chores,
Every time you dressed, it impressed only the lusty eyes,
Your eyes were never read properly,
Even your words never mattered,
You were appreciated only to gain physical satisfaction when the time came,
When your work was recognised worldwide, you were thrown out like trash,
Yes, you are in love, because you forgave his unfaithfulness,
You felt this curse called love was gifted,
Even when your entire realm shifted,
You never left his side even after drowning in gallons te...
