When The Posts Were for No One Ft. Realizations

I have long maintained that my posts are never for someone. And that was true till a while ago. And then it changed a little bit. I met someone who I can attribute at least 4 of my posts to. This was quite a big change for me. Initially I did not want to share those pieces on social media because they seemed more personal and intimate than any of the others I had written for some years. But they are online now, and they don’t look any different than my other posts. Only I would know the difference.

Okay I let in a couple of my friends on the secret too. They were surprised but supporting nonetheless! I make it sound more dire than the situation really is. But it seemed like a crucial milestone to log in the blog. I will not be posting the dates because I remember them anyway. The timestamps have skipped my mind now, which is progress! Haha. Full disclosure: the posts are still abstract, fictional and creative pieces. But the fact that they were born out of emotions after a certain period in time are enough to warrant this whole post!

It was a different time and refreshing experience for me. And to see if it could be discerned from the content of the piece that it was another kind of special. There are happy, fluffy pieces and really dark, heavy poems/haiku that can be attributed to that time. I am glad to report that all of the new pieces are free from the burden of that time or place or person or animal or thing :p Trying to make it light. Thank god it was only those 4 posts and now I’m back to fictionally orchestrated posts. Fancy term for : it came to me like that! One more confession: I cut my nails, voluntarily. To the world it may not seem like a lot. But my friends who understood the enormity of the situation gave me their full reactions. People change their hair as a trans-formative action. For me, it’s nails! Context: I used to be a chronic nail biter. I’ve somehow got over that habit in the last couple of years, so I treasure my natural nails a little bit too much now. Cutting them is a big deal. This post has turned into a life update of sorts.

I don’t know who enjoys reading these random posts, but I’m sure I will fondly look over these later in life (if I live long enough, but that is a topic for another day, haha). Thank you for reading! Hope everyone is keeping busy, staying safe and having fruitful days 🙂

Ocean of Poetry

I thought I was less for you,

Look now at this ocean of poetry! 

This represents how one could feel inferior in a relationship, or not sufficient. But in this case, it’s visible that the love was true, and immense when a lot of poetry is born in the process. It proves that there is no comparison because so much art, love, poetry and prose have been created by their being in love. It’s a good sign. First posted on the blog in September 2019.

Tunes of Your Heart

Dancing to the tunes of your heart

I lost myself completely! 

When you find someone who leaves you speechless, that is a different feeling in itself. Especially if you thought always that you were good with words and that whatever you write or say would be enough for Expressing all your feelings. If you have this love or any kind of love: hold on to it tight! Have a great day everyone! Art by Effenemea.

I am posting my poetry and pieces on Instagram daily and some tidbits about my life too.

Mother

I resonate with you
As you brought me to life.
You represent an emblem of sacrifice
And of love, boundless and infinite.
Poem or praise falls short, as an ode
To a mother is who is a god!

I remember writing this for Mothers’ Day and I should have sent it to her but I don’t do the mushy stuff! Haha. I sent her a lot of other messages that I’m sure meant the world to her but could not make up for the geographical distance we had this time around. A huge thanks to my mom who has always loved me, trusted me and made me a good human being. I can only hope to be as strong, and confident as she is. Because she has sacrificed a lot to see us happy! Every day we should thank our moms, but here is just another reason to do this today. If you haven’t done so, tell your mom you love her!

Your calm.

My chaos longs for

your calm.


Well, its Valentine’s Day and I would be remiss to not post on my very lovely blog today. Hope you’re all having a great day with the love of your life, at work, with your best friends, family or just by yourself with pizza and Netflix, because  ‘yay, self-love’.

Another year and I would carefully keep my plans under wraps. Hehe, partly because I’m smack in the middle of my exams and the highlight of my day will be a few calls, some texting, good food and a ton of good music from my forever playlist.
