A conversation between neighbors.

"So Nandita, what did your husband get you for your birthday?", asked Misha.

"Oh! Tons of stuff Misha! A diamond necklace, a new dress from Chemistry, a wonderful gooey chocolate cake...", Nandita trailed on.

Misha noticed a pretense behind the happiness Nandita was demonstrating. But she knew better than to question her about it. Ten years of being Nandita's neighbor, she had seen and heard much more than she should have. She knew what went on behind closed doors, for she had heard the screaming, the hitting and the fresh bruises on Nandita's body. But what made her stay in that abusive relationship, she failed to understand. Was she lured by the money or the materialistic possessions?

Nandita was once an independent woman with a wonderful career. She got married to a man, who had crushed not only her dreams, but her confidence as well. She still had enough money in the bank to leave him and start a new life, she knew that.. but..

Misha came back to the present when Nandita snapped and asked, "Where have you traveled off to?"

Misha smiled, "Don't mind my asking, but tell me, why are you still bearing the brunt of something that was never your fault?"

Nandita held back her tears and said, "Misha, you have no idea, but getting married was my childhood dream. I wanted to be with a man who would love me and give me more happiness than I had ever felt. I wanted to have his kids, be a wonderful wife and have a happy family. None of those things seem to be coming true, but I am still hopeful. But now,  I am at the least fulfilling my dream of being a wonderful wife...."

Misha hated herself for judging Nandita to be a gold digger. Misha had no words to say, should she tell her to be practical, move on and start a new life or should she tell her that people of such character never change?

Speaking her mind, Misha said, "When you finally escape the hold of your husband, you get a whole new outlook on life. You will start feeling emotionally and mentally more stable. There will be an overwhelming sense of freedom you will get while finding yourself once again. You'll be able to do things that you haven't done for a while. It's like being set free from prison, your choices will be unlimited. Being alone would have never felt so good! And God will guide your way.. He knows your dreams and if He thinks a wonderful relationship is what you deserve, he will send one your way and help you heal. But darling, unless you make a decision and help yourself, nobody can help you live the life you dreamed of."

Nandita hugged Misha and said, "I wish it were as simple as you said."

I'm nothing without you.

How far should I tread alone,
Before you come and clasp my arm?
How much more pain should I endure,
Before I get an understanding hug?

Deeply flawed,
I am;
But with you by my side,
It all adds up,
To the most perfect equation,
One that you and I together create.

I always need to know that..
You'll never let me go,
For it is with you,
I know what compatibility feels like.

The long gone past we talk of,
The future yet to come we dream of,
And the present that we share,
As far as heaven you go to,
To make it momentous.

What will life be without you,
I never want to know,
I crave your company,
I yearn to spend time with you,
I pine to see you happy,
I hope my wishes are heard,
For these, indeed, are my life's greatest desires.

24 October, 2013

I'm overwhelmed to have YOU.

I complain of a migraine,
Or of a stomach ache,
Maybe even of a cold,
Just knowing I feel sick,
You're ready to rush me to the hospital,
Awww.. I feel overwhelmed!

You motivate me to study,
And teach me to prioritize,
You spoon-feed me and spoil me rotten,
You pamper me like I'm your queen,
Awww.. I feel overwhelmed!

There's nothing that your love for me can't accomplish,
It's divine, it's enchanting;
It's pure, it's rewarding;
But above all..
The amount of love you possess for me,
Overwhelms me and leaves me contended,
And indeed..
A life with you by my side is exactly what I look forward to. :)

What I forever need.

I hold your hand,
And cannot believe how wonderfully our hands fit,
As we embrace each other,
A trance we fall into,
For we cannot believe how wonderfully our bodies entwine.

The times when we cook,
I hold close to my heart,
For it is in those times I learn togetherness;
Forward I look to,
With inquistiveness,
To what the future has in store for us.

The times when you kiss me before we leave,
It makes me feel so loved;
When you kiss my nose,
I tend to crinkle it;
When you kiss my ear,
The resounding sound deafens me for sometime,
Thus making you my main picture.

Baby, I don't know how to let you know that I love you, so..
I'll give you all my time and more love than you will ever need,
I'll hug and listen to you vent when you're upset,
I'll share all your joy and happiness,
I'll be the best version of myself;
And all I ask for in return?
An endless, inexhaustible stock of undying love,
Will you please give me that forever??

100 fiction.

One look at her and I went spiraling down the memory lane. I remembered how I hated the way she was rude to people, I hated how plain she looked and so many things about her attitude. But today, she had enhanced my life in a way nobody else ever could have. She brought in joy and happiness, laughter and most importantly, love.

I told my son, "Love isn't about who looks hottest or prettiest. It's about who can make you smile widest and feel overwhelmed with emotion with just one look. It's about who looks after you when you're sick, who listens to you when you're down and who tends to your every need. It's not about who has abs underneath his shirt or who looks the perfect couple. In love, we always are perfect in each other's eyes."

My wife of 25 years, who passed away five minutes ago, taught me the most important lesson of my life.

In the candlelight.

The moonlight fell across the hall,
Where there glistened a single candle;
In the shadows,
Was the figure of a woman,
Whose beauty was enhanced,
By the games the light played on her.

She looked striking in a blue dress,
One that oozed elegance,
She was my princess,
For she held the key to the throne -
That was my heart.

Romantic was the setting,
Candlelight, flowers, a fabulous ambiance;
I wished to caress her,
Stroke her hair,
And hold her in my arms forever.

Amidst good food and great conversation,
I spent my last night in the town,
With the one I adored,
It was a moment that will stand the test of time,
And remain etched in my memory for eternity.

Love a guy who.. Part 3.

Love a guy who.. 
Wakes you up every morning,
With a kiss,
While uttering the words you want to hear.

Love a guy who..
Buys you your favourite leopard printed tee,
Inspite of being tight on finances,
Just to see you lighten up with joy.

Love a guy who..
Makes you try scary rides,
Just to blow your fears away,
Mentioning how important it is to try everything in life once.

Love a guy who..
Plays water fights with you,
Not bothering what other people would think,
For being childish he sees as a way of life.

Love a guy who..
Introduces you to a new sport,
Thus making it your obsession,
And to see you enjoy,
Takes you to play it everyday.

Love a guy who..
Cannot bear to see you cry,
Tears roll down his cheeks as well,
When he see you damp and gloomy.

Love a guy who..
Watches late night movies with you,
Just cause you had been aching to watch it,
Inspite of having to wake up early the next day.

Love a guy who..
Helps you shed your inhibitions,
Looks out for you,
Calls your name sweetly,
And most important of all..
Adores, respects and loves you with all his heart and soul,
For it is in such a guy..
That we find our soulmate,
The one who will forever be a part of our life.

Sometimes love isn't enough..

Sound trashing I always got,
For the coffee not being hot enough,
For the missing button on a shirt,
Abused I was,
Now I believe..
Sometimes love isn't enough.

He called me names,
But he said he loved me,
He pushed me around,
Disrespectful he was towards me;
Oh yes..
Love isn't enough.

He hugged me tight,
And unhooked my bra,
Trying to set my body on fire,
But sleep was taking me over,
When I said that out loud,
Forcefully he invaded my body,
Sometimes love isn't enough.

He bought me expensive gifts,
He took me to see new places,
He even called me his jaan,
But when it came down to the basics of being loved,
Respect, adoration, concern..
Indeed, sometimes 'love' isn't enough.

A guy's dream day.

With a joystick in his hand,
Adorable he looks,
For on entering the house,
Squeal he did,
On seeing an Xbox in a house we stayed.

Comments he screams,
"I will save you, my girl!",
For the villain's role he does not play;
Justice and truth, 
He seeks to protect.

Excited he gets,
On seeing virtual fireworks;
"Yay!", he screams,
Every time he wins,
Just like a kid who got his chocolate.

In the midst of the chaos he creates,
Parathas he waits for, to gobble them down;
"What a beautiful life", he proclaims,
Food and gaming,
A guy's perfect dream,
Come to reality,
And achieve it he did,
In a random house on a shady lane.

Teenage pregnancies.

Bulging belly,
Naked hand,
A hundred eyes followed her wherever she went,
No celebrity she was,
But a teenage mom to be.

An abortion she was advised to have,
Not only by her parents,
But even by the guy,
Who gave life to the form,
Growing in her body.

Hormonal changes,
Weight issues,
Mood swings,
That pregnancy brought along didn't bother her,
For all she could think of,
Was holding this precious bundle in her arms.

She refused to kill her unborn child,
She didn't want to give it up for adoption,
A time when she should be in school,
At home she sat,
Speaking to the baby in her tummy.

She narrated stories,
Listened to good music,
She reduced her stress levels and ate good food,
For the baby that thrived on her,
Seemed to be her future.

She could feel,
The heart beat in sync with hers;
Feel him/her move in her tummy,
Swimming in her body's fluids;
She could feel him/her kick,
And see the impression of his/her feet on her tummy;
Nothing gave her greater joy.

Teenage pregnancies,
Are they wrong? Are they right?
Are they ethically and morally bad?
Ambiguous questions these are,
For the heart and mind speak different languages,
And what is right to one may not be to the other;
But for now,
She was happy to wade in happiness,
Even without knowing if her baby was a girl or boy.

Women Are NOT A Piece Of Meat.

Skimpy clothing,
Sluttish dancing,
Showing sex to lure audience,
Stop treating women like a piece of meat!!

Selling shoes,
To tone big butts,
To make them round,
So men feel fulfilled,
Stop treating women like a piece of meat!!

Raping her,
Because her clothes provoked you,
Your stupidity evokes me,
To slap you,
Stop treating women like a piece of meat!!

For she has a heart and she has a soul,
She wishes to be loved,
For who she is,
Than the shape of her curves,
Respect her, adore her,
Compliment her, embrace her;
Stop treating her like a turned on dog,
Look into her needs,
For it is men like that,
Who get to be treated with honor and respect,
For they respect a woman's dignity,
And don't look at her like a piece of meat.

Faithfully yours.

No matter how long it takes,
For us to sort our lives,
I will be yours.

If it takes us eons,
To achieve our dreams,
And see them come true,
I'll still be yours.

If we stumble,
And fail,
I will be by your side,
Holding your hand,
For even then I'm yours.

When we've reached a point,
Where we exude content,
And happiness is all we feel,
Just know that I'll be smiling along,
Cause I'm yours.

We'll exchange rings one day,
And be fiancé's,
Then we'll get married,
Be lawfully wedded husband and wife,
But even before the time for these occasions come..
I'm yours.

I pledge to be faithful to you,
I promise to spend fifty plus years with you,
I vow to be together till death do us apart,
For I believe in us,
And this is the kind of love I was waiting for..
Unconditional and reciprocating;
And you were the person I was waiting for,
I'll faithfully be yours..


My Need; My Desire.

It scares me,
Not being yours,
It sends a chill down my spine,
And makes me want to whine,
For you are my life's greatest desire.

Times when you talk of being single,
Insecure I feel,
As you are someone I cannot stand to lose,
You make my world brighter,
For you I orbit.

Loneliness takes over me,
Resentful I become,
A petulant, stone-hearted person I wish not to turn into,
You're integral to my existence,
For life with you is what I dream about.

How different would my life have been,
Had you never entered it?
I will never know,
And I wish not to either,
You're my sun that shines brightly,
Among the gloomy clouds,
Stay in my life forever,
For you, my love;
Are my life's need and desire.

26 June, 2013

Meant to grow old together..

Just one look at you and..
I get overwhelmed by the love I have for you,
I drown in your warmth,
And feel giddy when I see you smile,
You have no idea how much I love you.

Your brown eyes,
They sparkle,
When sunlight bathes them,
They twinkle; they speak to me,
Oh dear!
You have no clue how hard I've fallen for you.

Your muscular body,
With which you envelope me,
Leaves me in a trance,
I cannot believe I deserve you,
You have no inkling to the amount I adore you.

Your hands,
As they entwine with my fingers,
As our palms touch each other,
I feel belonging,
I feel loved,
I have a hunch that I fancy you far too much.

Words fall short,
When I try to convey my love for you,
I cannot articulate; I cannot profess,
No matter how much I try,
I fall short;
I love you too much,
Much, much more than I will ever be able to express;
I give to you my heart, body and soul,
For I have faith that our relationship,
Is meant to be,
You and I,
We're meant to get old together,
And wish on falling stars.

For A Thousand Years..

For a thousand years,
I waited to feel your breath on my neck,
My hair rose on end,
And goosebumps I felt,
And the wait was worth it.

For a thousand years,
I wanted to hearken your heartbeat,
And when I finally got the chance,
I was elated,
For our beats together weaved a melody.

For a thousand years,
I wished to lay on your shoulders and laugh out loud,
When you clicked a photo of me open mouthed,
I didn't just fulfill my dream,
But even had visual memories of it.

For a thousand years,
I wished to feel your arms around me,
Embracing me in tight, warm hugs,
And when I was stroked and caressed,
I felt like I had for the first time experienced the purest love.

For a thousand years..
I wanted to know how our bodies would feel against each other,
And when we fondled, cuddled and made love,
I knew that I would do anything..
And give thousand more years,
Only to be yours forever.

Love a guy who.. Part 2.

Love a guy who..
Will willingly carry your bag,
And not feel embarrassed,
To be seen in public with a woman's bag.

Love a guy who..
Will fulfill your every call,
Ask him to take you on night rides,
And poof! He buys a bike to hear you squeal.

Love a guy who..
Will wait in a doctor's clinic,
Even though he hates to be delayed,
For he values your torn gum more than his time.

Love a guy who..
Puts you before his own needs,
And cares to understand every word you speak,
For making you happy seems to be his goal.

Love a guy who..
Will cup your face in his hands when you cry,
Console you,
And tell you how you're stronger than the obstacles you face.

Love a guy who..
Puts his hand on your shoulder,
And pulls you close to his chest,
Just to make you hear his heartbeat.. that beats for you.

Love a guy..
Who helps you preserve your faith,
Visits temples with you,
And prays with positivity.

Love a guy who..
Knows you in and out,
Weaknesses and strength,
But will never use them against you.

Love a guy who..
Knows you are his world,
But not once uses it to his advantage,
For he knows how much you mean to him.

Love a guy who..
Respects your body and soul,
Nurtures and cherishes you,
For you might be his world too.

A Birthday Letter To A Lovely Sister :)

Dearest sister,

Wish you a very happy birthday! :)

I hope you have a wonderful day showered with love and all good things that the world can offer.

There’s this quote that I recently read and I felt that it resonated with us:

“For there is no friend like a sister
In calm or stormy weather; 
To cheer one on the tedious way, 
To fetch one if one goes astray,
To lift one if one totters down, 
To strengthen whilst one stands” 
― Christina Rossetti

In the short time that we have known each other, you have inspired me like none other. You’ve helped me pick pieces up and forced me to move forward, even when failure broke me apart. You taught me so many lessons that today, I feel strong enough to face life’s battles. Sometimes, when things in life go wrong, that is all we need to do, revisit the lessons we have learned. All the problems you are facing are like clouds that are blocking the clear sky, tackle the clouds - it might rain and pour down with problems - but always remember that the sun will appear. The Lord knows how much we can take and how many problems we are capable of facing and believe that he will never burden us with more than we can handle.

They say love makes life worth living. It is indeed true and I learnt that from you. There is nothing that love cannot accomplish; there is nothing that love cannot crack open. Love might shatter our comfort zones, but it will always take us to deeper levels within ourselves. It will force us to expand our boundaries and explore new things. On this new journey of life that you are about to embark, I hope you take along lots of love.

Security is just an illusion. We feel that we are secure when things that we need are within our reach, when we are able to satisfy our wants and when life is at a pace we can handle. But when we do new things, there is no security. When Neil Armstrong went to the moon, what proof did he have that he would return safe? When Edmund Hillary climbed Mount Everest, what did he carry along for security? These great men broke out of their comfort zones and went ahead to do things they didn’t need to do. Just like how you went out your way to help a woman in distress, just how you gave your hand when the world ignored my cries for help, you made me feel secure. You’ve done great things, break the shackles and fulfill your dreams. They’re waiting for you.

Hope for better things. Hope is one thing that can bring great changes to a person’s life. Hope that your health will be better and hope that the bugs that are bothering you will be squashed. When we hope, the world aspires and comes together to make it true. Optimism doesn’t fool us that things are better, optimism makes us see things in a new light and that light helps us build our world in the way we want it.

Keep faith and pray everyday. The Lord will always watch us and never, ever let us down. He might give us a few setbacks to humble us, a few successes when he knows we’ve done our best and failures when we need to work harder. The Lord only intends to make us better people and only wants to help us live our lives to the best we can, atleast I believe so and I hope you will too. Never loose faith, for that is where life came from. Our parents had faith that we would be born hale and healthy with two hands, two legs and a heart that will pump efficiently.

You know, in life, there are very few people who really ask us how we are. When people ask it as a formality, we have all the right in the world to pretend that we’re perfect. But when it comes from the heart, when the intention to know how you are is genuine, let the layers fade. Let the reality come out. People say that we need to pretend, as we cannot go around sharing our sorrows. Maybe it’s true; maybe it’s not. I haven’t learnt that yet. But I know that I’m willing to take away a part of your pain by listening to the troubles you have. A problem shared is like a burden lifted off the shoulder, it gets halved. So share not only your joys, but your sorrows too. A joy when shared will multiply and a sorrow? When it shared, it will divide.

I have always admired how you have defined yourself. You’re an investment banker, you’re a daughter, a wife, a sister, a friend and I’m sure you play so many more roles in the lives of people around you. But you have always been ‘love’ to me. I love how you have no layers to yourself. I love that innocence, that warmth and that smile that you seem to carry. I love the sweet tune of your voice whenever you talk. Please never change that no matter how stern the world seems on changing it; be yourself. You’re too beautiful a person to turn into a replica of crazy mud-heads.

I don’t know if there’s too much advice in this letter, but I hope you get the message. I care for you and would only wish you the best. I hope your spirits are high and awakened. I hope that you pop open a bottle of champagne (if you don’t drink, even water would do!), raise a toast to yourself, face life in the eye and say, “I’m ready, bring it on! Show me what you’ve got!” For that’s how strong you are. Put on the best version of yourself and have a great birthday!! :)

Tons of tight hugs, warm cuddles and lots of love,

I love you knight, because..

There's so much I love about you,
That I can practically write a book on it,
But this is what comes to my mind,
When I say your name..
Your smile.

Your smile lightens up my darkest days,
It gives me hope, it gives me faith,
Your smile is like a guiding light,
One that I'll always keep in sight.

Your unconditional love,
You gave, but didn't expect,
You paved my path, you showed me the way,
Your love has always been my beacon.

Your positivity,
Motivating me that things will all fall in place,
Optimistic that the light will be visible,
That till the end of the tunnel is all I will have to wait for.

Your kindness,
You gave more than I asked for,
I don't know where you came from,
But I'll never let you go.

 I love you,
And always will,
For you have the key,
To my locked heart,
You're precious to me, my darling,
And I love every trait you possess,
For you're my knight in shining armor.

Down the Memory Lane. ♥

I would peep into his class and talk to all my seniors, but with my eyes transfixed on him.

I used to get so nervous when I compered, not because of talking in public, but because of how close he sat to me.

We shared a love for public speaking. He was so special to me, but he never knew it. We never spoke more than necessary, but I cared a lot about him. I don't know if he liked me as much, but I know that he enjoyed my company.

I've not seen or spoken to him since he passed out of school, eight years ago, but he is still an integral part of my memories.

For he was my first crush. ♥

P.S: Me's post inspired me to write this. :)
