He Is…

In a field of wild violets
He is my balmy lavender
Graceful, tranquil and trusting…

Remain always…

In her heart he lives and shall remain always
Roaming freely in the wilderness of her emotions
Tugging at her deepest chords
Stirring a love so real and strong
In her heart he lives and shall remain always
Safe and secure
Free and fair
Loved and cared
In her heart he lives and shall remain always….

मै शायर तो नाही #6

We never know where we are headed or what our final destination is, but still we weave our stories and give perfect happy endings to it.  Life doesn’t always go as we want it to and somewhere along the way we lose our way.

मै शायर तो नाही #5

How do you feel if you are asked to leave a movie halfway through? Or eat just a bite of a delicious pizza or a cake! We don’t like leaving things halfway. But then why do we leave our stories half…

PS: This also happens to be my 1st post of 2020. Damn. I should get to writing rather than just re-posting! :/

An Ode to the Imperfects

If you are a 90s kid born in India, you will remember how songs made us all fall in love with love. Music, especially the Bollywood romantic and the Hindi Pop, was a huge part of our childhood.

Heck, I even wanted that certain someone to sing those songs to me…

The fate bleeds…

I had written this earlier, but this seems to go perfect with Sue‘s Photo Prompt for this week. Hope you guys like it. 🙂

He playfully ruffles my hair, leans in closer to kiss my forehead but suddenly stops short. I hold his gaze and watch as the ghost of the laugh we just shared gets eclipsed by intense thoughts. I know what he is thinking…and maybe he is right. Continue reading The fate bleeds…

Silence #writephoto

The ocean inspires many things. Here’s my entry for the Weekly Photo Prompt hosted by Sue Vincent.

 

 

Silence

Easing into your ebb and flow

Like a ship at the high sea
