    Love, Love, Love Alone (Or Maybe More)

    He asked me what love is. In my insecurity and my inability to talk about such emotional matters, I just said, ‘I don’t know’. The answer to the question was simple. I was always following the lead. I always felt I knew what the answer was but in the bid to be my capitalist, authoritarian, ‘what-feelings?’ self, I forgot that there is a sensitive side to me that needs to be nourished and cared for, every now and then. As I said, this year is going to be a completely new experience for me. I am slowly but surely detangling emotional locks, finding the keys one at a time. The…

    Finding A Convenient Love Story

    I have said this on many occasions and I will continue saying this till the end of time. 1- Love is sacred and idiots around the world are ruining it all. 2- We were not raised the way we are behaving, or were we? Talking about convenient love. You know convenient love is that infatuation with a human being that exists because we try to become the brew masters of our heart. We create a situation where we can fall in love, develop feelings, act out on our feelings like there is nothing else in the world that we believe in and then leave as easily when our expectations are…

    Times When I Want To Talk

    These times when I want to talk Are times rather rare These times when I want you close For a little cuddly moment These times when I want to hold Your hand and write a sonnet These times when All I want Is to speak like I never did before These times when All the emotions Piled up for long stop their torment These times when Speaking is The only relief I have These times when I sing a song In my little room-cave These times when You feel a pinch Of loneliness taking over you These times when All your ambitions Lie sleeping and dormant These times when I…

    People and Energy Interactivity

    I was exposed to a lot of people and philosophies lately. Though nothing really happened in my life apart from a plan for a huge career shift, a lot happened with people who were really close to me. These people, I believe, are the very extensions of my own self. They faced many issues in life and I was lucky enough to share the burden with them. However, as the time passed by I got to learn a lot of things. The first one was that the number of people in your life doesn’t really matter. If you just have one person who would stand by you when you really…

    Goodbye…. Half Lie

    Remember, I used to call you To come to the place we loved to be Together we used to watch people pass by The kids and the staring eyes that used to see The love in our eyes and the bond of our souls Same old things that are saying goodbye. I have waited for this moment ever since I was gone I only wanted the time to be ripe When I could see you for one last time And then cease to be a part of your life. Friend, dearest friend, I have loved you more Than the deep ocean trench I have hidden a love wider than the…

    Loving From A Distance: Sad To Be Happy

    There can be nothing worse than this to be honest. When you love from a distance, you really feel too sad to be happy. You never know what they are feeling and when the pain strikes. Then there are moments when communication is needed, not necessarily performed. It can be any relationship in your life. When the one you love is not around, it seems like the world would crash any day and they will be found dead. Yes, fear is the most integral part of the long distance love. The fear of loss is primary here. It could be loss due to cheating or ill health or pretty much…

    Love Can Change Your Life….

    Lately, i have been talking a lot about love. How you worry about it, how you want it and how it all is the single most basic need of every person. Today, lets talk about something very subtle and very subjective. Love changes your life. Love is something that may make you spin on one leg. Yeah, that is funny. Seriously. I have often come across people, books and theories that say that a little love can really turn around the whole process of being healthy, wealthy and wise. Honestly, they are not wrong and this post comes from personal experience. First of all, there is nothing wrong in being…

    Why is Love Scarce?

    We all have grown up listening to fairy tales, watching movies and reading books. All tell the same story of finding true love and living happily ever after, forever. More recently, we have also been experiencing a different side of love. A love that happens in minutes and fades in days that follow. A love that happens in words and not in feelings, a love that happens in phone calls and not in emotions.What is the big deal with this conflicting idea of love? Why are we all looking for love and ditching everyone who tries to love us on the way? Why do we begin but never end this…

    I Thought You Would Live Forever…

    This is the first time ever…. I am sharing something that’s too close to my heart. I have written about things that do not bother me, that bother me and about those people and situations that made the poet inside become a ballad singer. For the first time ever, i am sharing something that i have never told the world. Maybe i am scared to share these things even with myself. I do not want my soul to become a black hole that slowly digests my entire beings. So here i am sharing it all … and i don’t quite know the consequences. I thought she would never die. I…
