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 🙂

PS. The featured image is from that day, serving as a cool reminder.

Friday Nights

“Each Friday night,

like a dirty little secret,

together

but only for a few hours.”


Well well well. What do I say about this one. Rather be tight-lipped about this 😋 no pun intended. Congrats if you saw it! 😂🙈 Thanks for reading everyone.

Alcohol

The first and the last time I drowned my sorrows was for your sins!


How we choose to drown our sorrows, or celebrate our happy moments is our own choice. Sometimes alcohol helps. To each his own! I’ve believed in that for years now and always will. This post is again a different one for me. Seemed appropriate though. Art by @effenemea have a great day everyone. Thank you for reading. Stay safe and stay home. -Saloni .

Wise Words Wednesday (Nov 27, 2019)

The greatest lovers are like twin blooms, each reflecting the passion and the glory of the other.

I was in a weird funk last week! This week has been almost back to normal. But some things happened that changed so many of my views, for better or for worse. I hate being cryptic here, but the quote should be helpful as a hint. Anyway, A quote about a new love for Wise Words Wednesday. Hope you have a lovely day! 🙂

Mystified!

Honey,
You’ve made me a mystic
I belong to you in letter and spirit.
With my words, I claim to find you
While in my soul you already reside.
I am lost and found with you beside.
.

Focusing on spreading the language of love. Having someone be a part of you, and claiming it for all!

Secrets to Carry

Myriad colors and faces in the crowd,

Thoughts, dreams and wishes echoing loud

Find the man most glad, he’s stark,

For he hides a secret most dark.


 

Flashback Friday! This was first posted on my blog in July 2016 and received mixed reactions from the ‘crowd’. Because it is a little dark, it seems like a twisted quartet. But the thought behind it is actually the common thread that binds us all today – that we carry deep secrets within us and yet be social, pretend to be happy and hide behind our smiles to appear normal. If you believe another interpretation of it is valid, I’d love to know.
