Quote #17

Can’t we just take a moment to pause and to look, to observe and to appreciate, these pretty sunsets, and the raging storms, that we so often take for granted? P.S.- June has always been a really special month for me for absolutely no reason at all. So this year, I decided to make some…

The Person in the Mirror

To the person I see in the mirror everyday, I apologize for all the hardships I put you through, for being so rude and so cruel to you, for lying to you again and again, for telling you that you’re not beautiful, too plain. I apologize for shutting you out, for torturing you no doubt,…

A Beautiful Piece of Art

When asked, she smiles and says, “I’m okay, thank you, good day”. Half moon circles adorn her wrist, hidden under the long sleeves of her tees. Dark circles under her eyes, concealed by a lavish amount of make up. Pain in her smile disguised into beautiful words. Emptiness in her heart veiled through a beautiful…

Hello dear Twenties!

Goodbye to my teenage years, and a warm (read, conflicted) hello to the twenties! Now my dear twenties, let me give you a little behind the scenes of who you’ll be dealing with. Now I’m an amazing person, very caring, very considerate, very loving. I’m kind and patient (most of the times), sometimes rude and…

Can’t seem to close it

These slowed reverb songs torment me with this space that lies between you and me. Didn’t think it was possible for me to open my heart again, but to you, I just can’t seem to close it. Moments I crave for, your presence I seek for, your smile I’m breathless for. P.S.- What did you…

A Soul stronger than ever before

We were a wretched mess, hanging on by a wafer thin thread, clinging onto little moments of happiness. And when that thread broke, we fell apart and I was left alone, constantly thinking of where it all went wrong. Then I hit my lowest last year, suffocating beneath all that pain, kept fighting for fresh…

Monsters out there

Under the bed in the dark, that’s where the monsters lie in the lair of the darkness. Out in the open that’s where the monsters lie with a smiling mask on their faces. The monsters under the bed can be won over with time if one overcomes’ their own demons. The monsters out there are…

A beautiful day

Biryani on a rainy Monday afternoon, smell of fresh mint and marinated chicken, infused with crisp and earthy smell of rain. And that is all that it takes to transform a tiresome, dreadful Monday into a beautiful day. P.S.- Let me know what you think of this poem in the comment section below!

Someone oblivious of her worth

The epitome of innocence and thoughtfulness she is, so kind even to those who don’t deserve her at all, so considerate of others’ feelings and opinions, so irritating that I hate her sometimes, so annoying that I wish murder wasn’t a crime. Not so confident, always doubtful of herself, never really sure, always changing her…

Fall asleep beside me

Lie down beside me and tell me about your day, tell me about that guy who was a jerk to you, tell me how the weather today was too hot, tell me about the times when you missed me. Stay awake beside me and take my hand in yours, take me in your arms, take…
