I feel Sorry..

I feel Sorry..

for all the times

you caressed the star

but wished ’twas the moon.

I feel sorry..

that it was the moon you dreamed about

but had to,

adjust with the star.

I feel sorry..

for your cowardice

to let go of what you desired

but settling for what you got.

I feel sorry,

for you being such a fool

to have lost the moon

while counting the stars.

I don’t feel sorry..

for the moon but

Who chose itself,

than someone weak-hearted as you.

NaPoWriMo, Day 4: Was that Love?

She thought her dreams had come true,
Unaware of the impending doom.
She thought she would be complete,
Didn’t knew she was about to lose herself.
Her hopeful spirit, became a curse,
the false hope that things would change for the better,
did her more harm than good,
tears came to define her way of being.
The power to forgive easy,
Made her look easy.
The hurt kept on increasing,
‘Cos she gave too many chances.
Her spirit was almost breaking,
She was finally tired of her emotions,
Being played like a toy.
‘It’s over for me’, she said.
‘You’re being mean’, he said.
‘I know no other way with someone like you.
I am sure, i’m done with you.’

The heart longs to belong..

The heart longs to belong,

and sings an unknown song.

Lives with an undying hope,

But, love evades and there seems no scope.

The search goes on,

But, love never fails to con.

Then, one look in the mirror changed it all,

It begged, screamed and gave me a loud call.

‘Hey, you stupid,’

‘You, dreamy-eyed kid.’

‘You gotta grow up’,

‘And live the life, with head help up.’

‘You are complete,

the way you are’.

‘Why seek love outside,’

‘When it’s been there all along, buried deep inside.’

And, I remind myself,

Yes, it is. Yes, it is.

Writing 101 : Day 7, Give And Take

A Love Story?

Adam, the Bumble Bee one day, noticed a far away garden. In his curiosity, he expressed his desire of wandering there to his friends and family.

“We’ve never seen such beauty before, as we did in that garden,” his friends who’ve already been there would say ,” Don’t believe us? Go, see for yourself.”

And, Adam would think of giving it a try.

“Don’t even look that way, that garden will bring you doom,” his family would warn him.

Adam, on hearing such words, would push his desire away.

This turmoil went on for days. Finally, he gave in to the temptations.

**********

The vibrant display of colors, the exclusive smell of flowers, varying heights at which plants grew, drew him inside to never let him go back. He started enjoying to be among such beauties. He realized how right his friends were and how overprotective, his family was. “This is where i belong,” he would merrily sing.

One fine morning before the sunrise, he saw a secluded corner, which never caught his eye earlier. In his usual exploratory mood, he decided to explore the place and he thought he would then have, one more story to share with his friends back home. “No, I’m never going back. I’m loving it here”

The sun rose high, and shone light on the most beautiful flower. Adam went dumbstruck and could not gather the courage to go near her. She became the first thing he saw in the morning. Days and nights went by, just like that.

The flower on feeling privileged with his persistent admiration, called him by herself.

“Who are you, by the way?,” asked the flower.

“I’m Adam,” he replied shyly.

“What do you do here? You seem new to this place,”

“Ummm.. I was just passing by.”

“You liar, I know what are you upto,” the flower teased Adam.

“No, I was just..”

“You can come here. I won’t mind.”

“Sorry! did you really mean that?”

“Ofcourse, I did,” she winked.

Adam was so much in Love with his new life. The apple of his eyes, reciprocating his love. He could never imagine leaving her.

***********

” I was thinking, I should go and have a round of the garden. I have not left this place from so long. The flowers outside must be blooming,” said Adam.

“But, I would miss you my sweetheart.”

“Oh Come on, what did you do before I came in your Life. You have never left this place. This is where you belong. I will be back soon.”

“Can’t force you for anything. I’ll wait for you.”

***********

Adam got busy cherishing the beauty of new flowers outside. He was fine exploring the fresh flowers. The thought of the flower in that secluded corner never occurred to him again.

The flower grew pale, as she kept on waiting for Adam who never actually returned. Her self confidence, hitting the rock bottom. She wished, she withers away soon.

************

“You seem a paler version of yourself, dear flower. Is everything okay with you?,” said Zen, another Bumble Bee.

“Yes, I’m fine, ” replied the flower hiding her tears.

“You don’t seem so, my friend.”

“Umm.. I missed having a friend like you. You know, I’m tied to this place. Sometimes, I feel so lonely.”

“Oh, I’m so sorry. I was on a family trip. It was you, who I came to look for first. So, be happy.”

“Oh yes, I’m happy. Very happy.”

“I promise I will come to meet you daily.”

“You’re so sweet, Zen.”

*************

As Zen became a regular visitor, he caught Adam’s eye. One day, as his eyes followed Adam and as he saw him going towards the secluded corner, he remembered his early days with the flower. The very next day, Adam visited the flower.

“Hey, I’m sorry I became busy. What’s up with you?

“I’m fine, in the pink of my health.”

“That’s great,” not even noticing the poor health of the flower.

“Hey, how are you sweety?,” said Zen. “It seems we have a visitor.”

“He’s an old friend, just passing by,” replied the flower, trying not to relive the pain she went through all these days.

“Aaah, nice to meet you,” said Zen.

“I can’t say the same about you, ” replied an angry Adam. Then looking towards the flower, “You liar, so you can’t even tell him, what I was to you. A friend, huh? I hate you.”

“I know, you never loved me,” said a teary eyed flower.

Writing 101 : Day 3, Commit to a Writing Practice

Well, for today’s assignment I’m going to write about the three of my favorite songs and what do they mean to me.

Song 1:

Mujhse Juda Hokar (Movie: Hum Aapke Hain Kaun)

“By Separating from me, you have to go far away from me

A moment’s separation, and you will have to return”

This song is important to me because it so nicely depicts the pain of being separated from your Love for a short time along with the hope of meeting soon. And, the video has been shot perfectly to go with the lyrics. The lovers think that although we’ll have to leave each other for a while, but with the assurance that they will have each other’s love to keep company and their wait will actually be rewarded one day. This song leaves me feeling good. Cherishing their innocent and pure love for each other. And how much they’re going to miss each other when away. Also, how it depicts the dreams the couple have for their future together(If they are serious for each other). The stories they make, the scenes they imagine(shown in the video). I just love living those moments with them(The couple in the movie).

Here’s the youtube link of this song with English subtitles. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MONrycqV3Ow

P.S. Awwww, I’m such a Romantic.

Song 2:

Baabul(Movie: Hum Aapke Hain Kaun)

“Dear Father, whatever I’ve learnt from you in this home,

I take along all of that to my new house..”

This song is important to me, because it speaks about the pain a daughter goes through when she has to leave her Parents’ home when she gets married(In Indian culture, guys stay with their Parents throughout their life but girls stay until they get married) Although, I yet have to experience these emotions in my Life, but whenever I listen to this song I always have tears in my eyes. What a bride goes through at that time, has been so beautifully depicted in this song. What emotions she’s feeling, what she would say to her father, her mother, her sister has been so nicely said. I also have a younger sister, so i can easily relate. How she will take along the teachings from her Father, how she’d never forget the childhood stories she heard from him, how she’s going to leave behind her childhood memories and her request to her  younger sister to take care of her Parents in her absence. These words bring a plethora of emotions inside me. Its not yet happened, but will be in near future and saddens me to just even think about it.

I’m very attached to my Family, that shows why this song always evokes reactions in me.

Song 3:

Tu Na Jaane Aas Paas Hai Khuda(Movie: Anjaana Anjaani)

“You’re not aware that God’s all around you”

This song holds significance for me because i remember how once when I was really upset and stressed and I listened to this song. This song magically lifted my spirits. It asks you to remember that there is a divine presence around you. And, how you should not lose faith in yourself, and keep on walking on your path. This song is just awesome and it will directly speak to your depressed heart, your crushed spirit if you ever are in dumps and you can’t see anything worthwhile.

I’m in love with this song.

These all songs are close to my heart all for different reasons. Hope you had happy time reading the post.
