Blogiversary & Guest Post (Pending since 7 years)

It has been 9 years of penning down my emotions here. I can say this blog has seen the brightest and the darkest days of my life. I haven't been consistent in writing if you see the blog archive on the right side. 2018 brought the consistency in writing because a lot has changed. I shall sum it up in the last post: 2018 - The Year That Was.

Let me Thank You for reading and staying with me for 9 years. There are many silent readers. I am grateful to each one of you.

I am lost for words. Thank you once again and Christmas wishes to everyone.

To celebrate this blogiversary, following is the guest post by Eon Heath which he had written for me almost 7 years back. Our friendship holds a special place in my life.  I am sure you won't even read this but your post deserves my gratitude. Better late than never!


P: Pata hi nahi chala tumse chapar chapar kiye ek saal ho gaya!!
E: Bas ek hi saal hua?? :P Toh kya ab anniversary manana hai??
P: Haan. :P
E: Guest post??
P: Awesome idea!!
E: I know am awesome.. :P

So, after the above conversation and my awesome brainy coming up with this not so awesome idea of writing guest posts, here I am, the sincere me doing my part of the bargain!! *poor me*

Well, to think of it, girls are pretty weird to some extent. (not all of you!!) Do, you people really keep a tab of how long you have been talking ot someone? Or is it just the case with doctors keeping tab of their victims? ;-) [I think a few scalpels are being sharpened at this moment..] My opinion, its just doctors… :D

Err, well, if I rewind my life and kinda think about all the sooper awesome thingy that I did in the not so recent past, me thinketh, pestering Poonam.doc was what kept me going during all the not so good times of my life. And on her part, she has definitely got a lot smarter being in my company. (This doesn’t mean you can keep my brainy forever) Well, it’s a secret actually, I have lent my sooper awesome brainy to her for quite sometime now.. ;-)

To be honest, its comforting to know that there are people with whom you can be the stupid self and not be judged. {Now you know why I didn’t ask to see your doctors degree.. :P ] Just call them up at 2 or 3 in the night and ask them if they are sleeping…

I don’t know how its gonna be tomorrow, but for today I would say, I didn’t have to think about what i needed to write here. It is all It is.

Eon eon,
Yes Poonam?
Smoking cigarettes?
Yes Poonam..
:-/
NOT FAIR!!! ARENT YOU SUPPOSED TO LIE FIRST??
:P
Hehehehehehe….

p.s.: Am glad to have you in my life.  take care.

You Always Leave Me Behind

I understand
People will come and go

It hurts
Watching you leave
and
Keep coming back

Maybe one day
You will come
to
Stay Live forever

Alone Not Lonely

You aren't familiar with - 
Solitude is bliss!

Two souls
Stay together
Like each other
But can't 'live' together
They aren't the ones for -

The Beautiful Silence


They were standing next to each other under the lilac blue sky. The charcoal cloud swirls looked like a matt photograph. The turquoise blue river stream was shining unabashedly brilliant and hypnotic.  The warmth of their bodies and the majestic nature  were the version of perfect evening far from the hassles in their life.

There was a galaxy of fireflies above them, the only soothing source of light. Her elbow grazed across his arm while reaching for a firefly. He looked from the corner of his eyes and smiled. She was staring at the glinting little colorful light, happiness sparkled in her eyes.

The only movement were the dancing fireflies and their slow breathing. They both had their thoughts at switch-off mode. What mattered was this moment of being with each other. 

The blanket of silence enveloped their souls. It was comforting, the thousand unsaid words were understood. Their life back in the city will shatter the silence, so they embraced it tighter - their beautiful silence.

What if I hurt you?


Image Source: Pinterest
There was something about the moonlight which made her happy and sad at the same time.

She: What if I hurt you? Will you forget me?

He: (a mischievous smile dancing on his lips) Well, then you would be giving me a new reason to fall in love with you all over again.

Happy, because he was with her. Sad, because he will be gone, loving her more than ever.

And she felt - 
Life has cursed her with the gift of Love!

Her Glassy-eyed Stare


She was staring afar. She wasn’t blinking. Her eyes looked as if anesthetized.

He: Hey! (He revived her from the reverie by touching her hand)

It was strange, she wasn’t startled as if she knew where she was and yet lost. She looked straight in his eyes.

She: You know what I want now? I want a glass of wine or shots of vodka would be better. I want to drown in reality.

He dreaded her glassy-eyed stare. Never did he witnessed such expression in the years he had known her. For the first time, he was scared. What will happen when he will let her go?

Heart Or Brain In Love

And maybe someday I might find the reason 
why fate threw us apart
But for now
I shall keep cursing the time
I acted under obligations 
shoved you away 
breaking each other's heart

I don't want to experience ‘forever’, 
except when I am in your arms

Remember The Night We Met!


Image Source: Pinterest
Remember the clinking of glasses
the sharp taste of firewater

Remember the frivolous talks
the mirth in it

Remember the hesitancy
the entwined fingers

Remember the stare
that pierced my heart

Remember the brush of lips
the tight snug

Remember the warm breath on skin
the cease of ‘what ifs’

Remember the wound of love
the ecstasy in the kisses

Remember the caresses
the deep touch within

Remember the night we met
when we became 'one'!

Forget Me

Image Source
Forget
The day we first met
And forget
The path walked together

Forget
I make you smile
And forget
The secrets we share

Break the mirror
If you see my reflection
And turn all the memories
into dust

Do not feel me
in the raindrops
in the spring winds
in the autumn leaves

Do not find me
in the footprints on sand
in the ocean waves
in the crystal moon

Let the dust
ripple over my name
Forget how it sounds
For what should be left
is a white noise

Forget the aisle
I am no longer waiting
Before I leave
I will make sure
I am gone from your mind

If you suddenly say
"still waiting for you"
with roses in hand

Running towards you
I will lift my arm
To never touch you
To never tell you,
"If you ever turn
I am here for you
I was always for you"
