ancient beings shiver
from the tingle of primordial wind
we are merely part time residents
of their olden home
thousands of years
the rise and fall of kingdoms
doesn’t matter to these denizens
their experience of time and space is vastly different, we live in years, mere seconds to them.
guardians by day, by night

Hello all,

I just want to quickly say, always be thankful & grateful for everything you have.

I know sometimes as human beings we want more & are never satisfied with what God gives us.

Not knowing that there’s people in worse situation than the ones we are.

So, take a moment to be thankful for the food you have in your table, for your family, your friends, your pets, for your job, the car you’re driving, the roof on top of your, & mainly for opening your eyes to see another yet.

Cause not every day is promised.

So thank you God for everything you give us.

Hey dearest,

Sometimes
it takes a situation
to realise our feelings,
And yesterday
did that to me.

You are the most wonderful person i have met so far and your love has healed me . It had been the reason for my smile from the time we met till now.

Every tiny bit of memory brings with it a happiness that's irreplaceable. How many times you have surprised me and made me feel things i never expected to.

How many days you would just come anytime. And the things we would do ! The openness, honesty, friendship, love.. all those amazing emotions. Uninhibited pure care and affection.  Every word of yours had coloured up my day.

You have no idea how caring and genuine you could be. You just...

The Origin of my Name

It was a Sunday, a brilliant afternoon,
Devoid of anything pallid,
And, as my mum would tell me, it was
A great day to have
Her first born, her first kid.

My father was, being a Sunday, right by her,
Because if it was any other day,
He'd not be able to make it in time,
And, with his work, he'd end up missing
The greatest moment of his life, a moment
so sublime.

My mum, when recounting that day,
Would tell me she was terrified at first, 
Was even praying profusely, 
Because, even though I was a tiny blob of life 
In her arms, she made it out of it easily.

The nurse would later tell her,
She was confident that the kid, me,
Would gr...

I am drawn to the sea
and its salty spray,
my thoughts preserved,
far beyond the shore.
I am lost,
I am found,
with every wave,
the tide,
its pull,
I break,
I bleed,
from the sea I was born,
and to the sea,
I will return,
when I leave.

New found habits - Writing prompt

   Look at the world now, look how much it has changed. Do you remember how life used to be, before lockdown? Do you even think about it anymore? Most of us have gotten used to this life. The life with a mask, the life with restrictions on travel, the life with sanitizers and thermal scanners. This pandemic sure has changed a lot, especially in our daily lives.

  I for one, get to stay at home and work, which is nice in a way, cuz I don't have to go to office, I save on monthly expenses on food and travel, though rent is still being wasted, every month, but I've no choice. But this feels like the new normal. I stopped this and that, cause basically I can...

What was the last thing to catch your mind
and captivate your inner dialogue?

What were the whisperings you heard
in the corners we dared not gaze upon?

Is it just a brush with the hand of madness
or has it sunk its talons in deep
are the voices framed in unison
or is the dissonance keeping you from sleep?

Is the white knight still talking backwards
with a tea party in full swing
or did the delusions finally subside
into your familiar fever dream?

This game of questions has no apparent end
nor is their much hope of enlightenment
at the bottom of the empty inkwell

Sometimes, we become stuck in the same routine and seek comfort in the way things are now. It feels the safest and most familiar to you. When you tend to see the world darker than it truly is, a part of you starts to believe there is no love, friendship or passion that can bring any light back into your life. We remain alone and discontent only when we have given up on our desire for love, connection and something to be passionate about. @PLECCA

When you have been gravely injured and think that you can no longer stand up, perhaps there is a thing  called "faith" that helps you stay strong and helps you face everything that comes your way.
When the your eyes are filled with darkness , faith is the lamp that will  guide your every steps in night.
When you feel lost and lose hope, faith will make you believe that everything is possible.
Faith is all those prayers that we
say hoping that they will be answered.
Faith is the evidence that makes us believe on the existence of unseen powers.

So remember,
when the time is harsh and you feel troubled just keep faith and you will  surely get through...

I was afraid to open my window which was closed since long enough. I was comfortable in my own space without any foreign air sprinting inwards. I was afraid, that the dust that covered my table won't look pretty anymore. I was afraid of the change.

And then, a storm broke the glasses of my windows, it rushed in and created a mess. As if it changed everything. But now that every shattered piece of glass was on the floor and I was unwilling to clean it up, somehow I gathered my strength and started cleaning all the mess bit by bit every passing hour.

I got tired and I slept. I had a sound dreamless sleep finally after so long. When...

We are creatures of habit. We stick to our daily routine yet sometimes things don’t end up the way we intend them to. No matter how carefully we plan everything, life still gets in the way. But as the resilient beings that we are, we adjust, we adapt and we compromise. We move forward carrying this heavy load, and then we thrive.

The taste of purple : A short story

I was a kid, rather a chubby kid. I guess about 6 year old. It was first day of school and I was early enough to occupy the first bench. The next day I saw a boy sitting at my place and I told him to sit somewhere else. To me, as a kid, it was MY place. How could someone else take it away from me ?

But he did not listen, he hit me in my stomach. I hit him on his face and that is how we started fighting. But then something happened. His leg slipped and he fell on the floor hitting his head on the table before falling. Moments later there was a clear bump on his forehead and it had turned blue.

She's a beautiful dreamer with eyes like an angel
A body to die for and a mind just like mine.
She keeps all her thoughts and dreams in a journal
The passion she writes with keeps growing with time.
Sometimes her dreams are playful and vivid
Sometimes her thoughts are scary and dark.
I wish I could be there to help and to heal her
And put back together her sad, broken heart.

If she just lets me in and gives me her trust
I'll hold her together and keep her from breaking.
I've already fallen for her beauty and charm
My mind and my body are hers for the taking.
So my dream girl exists I've finally found her
Scarred and beaten but a spirit unbroken.

Dear people of the world,

We are all butterflies unable to see our own beauty. Only others can truly see it. If people say you are not beautiful they are the caterpillars who do not see the beauty you posses, only your strangeness in how different you are. That does not mean that your beauty is nonexistent, only that they focus on how you are different and not the beauty and color of your wings.

There are three people standing on the top of a mountain. This mountain overlooks humanity and its entirety. They can see time pass, from the cavemen to the astronauts that went to the moon, to the scientist today curing cancer. One of them looks up at the sky and says: "Breathtaking." The only girl of the three tilts her head up too and sighs lightly. She closes her eyes and searches blindly for a hand of the second man. Their hands intertwine and she guides his body closer to her. Finally the last one of the trio aims his eyes at the sky too. There they are, three people, on the top of a mountain, having the possibility to see humanity and its entirety, yet choosing to look at the sky. They...

THE MYSTERY

That air of intimidation blew me over.

The evening grew duskier. My Roman antique clock tick tocked.

The tenor turned cold. My phone kept ringing like one fire alarm. I ignored.

I ran down the staircase, only to be found alone in my home. I panicked.

There was a letter on the diners table. And it read just what happened above. The same lines written down neatly with no signature. I flipped it over. It was plain. Trembled was I.

I opened the door of my store room. The room was organized, like one cleaned up crime scene. But the pungency was hard to ignore.

I blocked my nose and walked further, into the corner of the room. She was there, waiting for me. Lifeless.

Dear letterists

At first when I was very very young, I was told that a home is a building you live in. A building made of bricks and cement and doors and windows.

So I loved mine with all my heart. Decorated the walls and the windows with little drawings and stuff. But then one day, I had to leave that house.

As I grew older, I realised that a house becomes a home because of the people who live in it. The memories they create there. The walls and the windows and the doors become witnesses to those memories as they are created, remembered and relived over the years.

So I decided to make a human being my home. For some time it was wonderful. But I always slept with one eye open. There w...

On a ledge
we stand,
a delicate balance
of fall and firm.

A void looms large
An empty canvas
The past paints
The present follows
Is it ever empty ?

Trials and tribulations
Pushing on
a chosen path,
of we run
someone's trajectory.

Validation
becomes primary,
Acceptance
turns necessity,
Are we ever ourself?

Inferior
is what we think and
Let be bullied.
Perpetrators feed
their fill
to next kill.

Of we run,
tears and fears later,
on a given trajectory,
for whom
we never know.

Stop once
from the drop
A spiralling abyss,
Value yourself
You wont fall.

Even
a slip from the edge
Means nothing.
The world moves,
So you stand
on the ledge
balance for yourself
Life depends on it.

The days are blending into one I think everyday is a Monday because that’s what it feels like. I’ve never liked Monday’s they were always the worst. First day back to school and the day after an amazing weekend. That’s not a thing any more, I know it will be over soon but I can’t help but think this will go on forever.
I know I should be grateful that I’m healthy and well but I really just want my freedom 💛

I am drawn to the sea
and its salty spray,
my thoughts preserved,
far beyond the shore.
I am lost,
I am found,
with every wave,
the tide,
its pull,
I break,
I bleed,
from the sea I was born,
and to the sea,
I will return,
when I leave.

I long for you.
If you are the fire,
I am a forest of hope,
eagerly awaiting your flame.
Rage like the wind,
let it carry you to me,
so that we may burn together.

It's been more than a week of unending work - hardly any sleep and random munchies for meals. "Don't know how long I can go on like this", I utter at last to my friend, breaking down in sheer exhaustion. It's the middle of the week and none of us have enough time for cranky conversation or consolation, and so we hang up in another couple of minutes. It's been ages since the Sun decided to show all its might - scorching heat and skyrocketing temperatures with no respite in the form of winds! What could possibly be worse than this!

But alas! The last couple days showed just what can be worse: enormous grey clouds playing hide-and-seek with the sun! So now with the heat is the humidity as well ...

I have a long list of things that make me happy and a longer one that don't. But since I'm pretty good at segmenting, my focus remains on all things bright and beautiful. So here are my top seven joys, in that order:

1. Dance: both Indian classical and modern Western
2. Reading: give me a crime thriller and watch my surroundings melt away
3. Chocolates: anything above 55% cocoa content is always welcome
4. Conversations: deep and meaningful ones with a little humour sprinkled across; preferably with my family though, and probably close friends
5. Coffee: a black, sugar free cuppa is all I need to get in the "zone"
6. Writing and Calligraphy: some times content and at others the fonts take my...

Can you tell me this?

Why is it that we strive for freedom from all shackles - mental, financial, psychological - and yet when that freedom is just around the corner, we feel more scared of it than we've ever feared anything else?

Is it just the trepidation aroused by the change that's to come, or is it that we were only in love with the idea of freedom and not freedom itself? For, to be truly free, wouldn't it mean to be rid of all attachments, expectations and dependence? To be able to live as we wish without being burdened by the constructs of society. And are we really ready to be in that state of existence?

We're supposedly social beings, with an inherent urge for association - with p...

I walk, without fear, towards the
promise of you. Following every
flower, in bloom, that still carries
your scent.
You always exist in all the places I
cannot reach; they hold on to your
beauty in ways I have only dreamt of
because all that I own are dreams.
Dreams of you.
Dreams of us.
I often find myself overwhelmed by
dreams, hoping one day I will wake,
and you’ll no longer be a dream to me.

The best way to get rid of sadness is through becoming angry at yourself. You must become so angry about losing control over your emotions that you no longer allow everyone and everything around you dictate how you feel. The angrier you become, the faster  your repressed emotions will give you the clarity and strength you need to be happy again. @PLECCA

Love is only love to you if you are able to perceive it as love. Someone can love you with all their heart, but if you think their affection is being given to you out of desperation, you will believe they are simply seeking attention from you. @PLECCA

Will we ever become united without focusing on our differences and the color of our skin? Will true love take over and ever win? Will society stand up to help achieve this mission? Will we ever love each other without preconditions? Will we ever reach the point where we can live and breathe freely without preconceived suspicions? @PLECCA

Be you.
You have got nothing to prove to the world,
the fires that burn will always burn,
respect is not given,
it is taught,
those that take the time to listen,
will earn something that cannot be bought.

Battle cries are heard
Across the world
Injustice ends with us today
No more pain and suffering
Or those eyes of judgement
We are building a brand new way
Peace wins out
Over the anger I’ve felt
As I look at my reflection today
But as the world burns
You’ll understand the words
Don’t compare to the sacrifices of yesterday

Everything thing evolves , even love.
Carnal and romantic love evolves into  divine love . Love is the force of creation of this universe . The creator's love created the whole world, and we are his children so our love essentially has the same potential. Carnal love produces a human child while evolved or divine love creates divine things. When shah jahan couldn't connect to his wife in the material plane his love evolved, and by it's force of creation gave birth to Taj . We too can harness this force to reach our goals , just start to experience love in a deeper plane. Love your special one's soul instead of their  body and see the magic of creation unfold.

I am about to throw it out
Let it float towards stars and die out.

We could have it all
I gave you my all
But who knew that "all"
Wasn't it just enough?

Like a boxer in a ring
I am trying to defend myself
You hit to slay, doubt I will make it.

Demanding what you refuse to give
Always pretending and hiding
How doesn't it feel to break me down?

With your past clenched in your hand
You are seducing, you are no lover
You are a beast hungry for revenge.

Tear down my heart
Will not make for what
Your ex break within you.

I don't want to fight
I don't want to die
I wanted to be seen.

Then i stood still for a minute and i found out that a piece of me didn't want you to ask for i won't be able to talk to you about it or to any one else ! As i have never been good in talking about my problems.

The rest of me wanted you so badly to ask about me to reach out to help me be the person i was once more and that part kept telling me that you could have done that without talking about what is bothering me and that you coul...

I am drowning in these murky waters depths,
My lungs burn from the strain of holding my breath.
I need fresh air, but am afraid to cusp the surface's edge.
The hallowed demons of my past,pull at my ankles.
Begging for me to give in.
My arms tred around me,my hands grasping and touching nothing.
The fear growing in my bellies depths.
Blood flows from my nose and drifts around me.
A silent scream escapes my lips.
Traveling up to the surface edge in a bubbles entrapment,only to be lost into the wind.
Its now or never.
Instead of fight or flight, its fight or die.  
Should i fight to hope for another possible wound and possible happiness? Or give into my demons and live a saddened existence w...

  What I see from the window

  A life of love I'm not the recipient of sadly.

  Excitement and adventure I'm excluded from daily.

  Friends & family who go place to place together while I'm here all alone, a nobody!

  Every hope. Every dream. Every wish. Ever desired reminding me they will never be for me.

  Freedom from this personal hell where glass and pane have turned to iron bars and lock with no key.

  What life could be if only I could be free.

  EVERYTHING I WANT LIVES
     ON THE OTHER SIDE OF
     THE WINDOW FROM ME!

        That's what I see...
   looking in or looking out,
        remains the same
              tauntingly!

I found myself looking
at the golden sun this morning
thinking of how warm it is
This never ending source
of faith in living

I found myself standing
in the crowd yelling and screaming
Who doesn't realize the crimson sun
was ready to be a gift of love
for everyone who was celebrating
the end of the day

I found myself with closed eyes
seeing only the blue sun before me
I knew it was a sign of hope
which was nowhere to be found
using just human eyes

And I wondered then and there
Have I felt it in my chest
Or was it just the pain

A Whole New World

I see trees of green and skies of blue,
Clouded by destruction and the smells of fossil fuel
I sit here asking myself "What's an individual to do?"
I wonder if the solution to my species is to not even exist at all.
I stop myself...
Those thoughts are negative.
Negativity fuels fear, Fear fuels depression, depression leads to hatred. Hatred of the very vessel keeping us alive.
What one four letter word could do to keep us alive.
Hope.
Hope is what drives the masses to stand for what they believe in.
Hope is what motivates change in a world heading toward inevitable destruction.
Stop.
There goes my mind again losing its grip on hope. Grip on hope that we ...

When it started flying humanity opposed
Humanity divided itself in to multiple races which lead to collisions
Because of this collisions the souls wings were slaughtered.
Now the soul is alone waiting for its day to fly to reach its dream.

Months ago the heat squandered me. A long time before Summer ever started. I don't think about it enough, what I've been through and where I'm going. And I think about it too much.

I thought I would spend the rest of my life wasting away in one place with nowhere to go but down. I thought there was nothing for me at all until persistent voices broke down my deafening walls. Then I looked a little bit closer. I realized that I could have anything I put forth the effort for. Why shouldn't I? And what more do I have to do other than breathe to be loved? It's the contract I entered into, being born. As long as I breathe I am loved. As long as I live and after I die to live again.

The first letter goes to myself.

Learn to make it on your own, learn to trust... only yourself.
Learn to love yourself first, and then who deserves it.
Learn to understand, to understand many things that you may not accept.
Learn to observe.
Learn to listen.
And above all, learn not to be ashamed of being who you are.

From myself, to myself.
And also to those who need it.

It's been awhile since I wrote anything of significance in any capacity.  So many years, so many decades I searched for the "others" . Those mythical beings that were in easy possession of an infinite array of weird, magical and unfathomable ideas.  The kind of folks I loved listening to and sharing with until 4 in the morning .
I traveled 48 states, 8 provinces and 3 countries over decades and sought out these unicorns,  these ghosts of the world.

That the sad (but expected) and quite tragic lesson that I learned was that they or you (I suspect you who read this...) are very, very rare.  I cannot count the many times when I started a conversation with someone,  got my hopes up in the exc...

No matter how hard I tried,
I always ended up losing you..
I kept you so close to me;
But you still chose to leave.
I spent my savings on you;
But you never gave a heed.
I slept thinking about you last night;
Wanting to keep you safe,
because you were my only one,
My dearest!
But when I woke up , you were gone, Gone like the wind...

I let you keep my sight together, but you still wandered away everytime.
I never let anybody have you..
I treated you like my own baby;
But you were least bothered to hold on to me or my feelings!!

Hello there,
I found this hidden gem when I was looking for a writing app or something or other (can't remember exactly) a few months ago then I got busy and stuck in the rat-races of life these days but isn't that the same with everyone. So it sat there on my phone in a folder that I access quite regularly just collecting dust (so to speak), so today I finally  had some downtime so I finally decided to set up an account and give this app a try.

I am not sure how exactly this really works but the way that I think that it works is that its like talking to the moon and stars in the sky above me when I am missing someone I love who has passed away just hoping that I could hear their voice o...

Look around you. Observe the world that you are living in.

Can you feel the beating of a thousand desperate hearts?

Can you see the fear for tomorrow in the looks of people?

Can you hear the cries of a thousand mothers who are losing their children each day?

Now ask yourself, is this the place where you always want to live?

Is this the place where each child expects to grow up when they open their innocent eyes and see the world for the first time?

Are you able to look in the eyes of those children without the feeling of shame for this reality full of evil, which they have to face?

Is this what we have prepared for them throughout centuries and years?

We cannot deny ...
