Set me free

Image
May be It's not the time
May be not the moment May be It's not right But just for the moment
Let's forget what ought to be And just let things be Just for the moment Hold my hand and set me free
I know deep down you feel it too And it's not the thing to say But life didn't promise us roses It wasn't fair anyway 
Put your feet on the ground  And feel the earth beneath Let something change inside you  Because it would anyway
Look into my eyes Like you always wanted to And tell me you're there                                                           And hear me say the same to you Because you know I'm there 
Smile at me like you smile from within A smile that reaches your eyes Hold my hand Like you always wanted to And let's go there 
A place where we are free.. 

Time is not what binds us Time sets us free All you need to do is hold my hand

The art of feeling inferior

Image
To feel is an art and seldom do we get it right.-Damini
Right from the day we are born, it is the world around us that tells us what attributes we have. What's good, what's bad, what needs improvement etc, is decided by other people around us,including our parents. 
All throughout our lives,our thoughts, feelings and beliefs are governed by these individuals, who by some power have the authority to determine who we are. 
Oh! She doesn't talk too much but he talks a lot! He isn't as fair as him but he's not as intelligent as him. You should be more outgoing, while you should be a little less and so on and so forth. 
By the time we grow up and embrace our reality, we realise that we haven't really grown up as fully functional beings. Rather, we are fragmented versions of ourselves;waiting for the world to put the pieces together so that we can make sense of ourselves. 
Constantly basing our judgments about our own sleeves, on the basis of those very people who are not…

The Unfinished Story

Image
She sat next to her phone, waiting for it to beep.. Like every other day.

Waiting for that one message, that one 'hi'  that would put a smile on her face for the whole day.. Sometimes the whole week.. or may be the month..

Her friends wondered what's wrong with her. Why does she always obsess about this one message? Agreed, she liked him. May be, he liked her too. Well, he never said it openly. 

Perhaps, she just assumed he did.
But she knew better. She didn't just like him;she loved him. It was that always, forever, eternal sort of love. 

A love, often seen in the movies, written about in books. A love, where there is a happy ever after, in its most absolute sense.
And she knew, he only liked her. He loved her as a friend.. or so he would say. 

He loved everything about her and would notice even the slightest change in her voice.
They were so tuned to each other, that she had begun to preempt those once a week messages and those fortnightly calls.

She would just sit by her pho…

The Simplicity of Relationships

Image
I don't know why,but we all like to believe (consciously or subconsciously) that relationships are difficult.It is this belief,that translates into our actions and ends up making relationships complicated as hell!

Sounds weird? May be.

Over the years,I have realized that we as humans have developed and nurtured this tendency to complicate and magnify things in our minds.With so much happening around us,so many demands to fulfill,so many personas to attend to; we cannot keep things simple.

Unfortunately, one of the things that is essential for our existence, our relationships,end up suffering.

When we have a train of thoughts running in our minds,when we are busy building up scenarios in our heads,how many times do we actually communicate properly as to what's happening?

Instead,we put our guards up-scream,shout,hurt the other person and then assume that he/she will understand.

Really? 


Does it sound fair? 

Yet,we still do it.

How many times do we make the effort of expressing what we t…

I am free

Image
Let me be imperfect, I don't know how to please you. 
Let me be broken,I don't know how to piece you.
Let me not be a shadow, I don't know how to follow you.
Let me be alone,I don't know how to be with you. 
You can't be my light for I am not in the dark. 
You can't darken my world, that's filled with my light. 
You want me to walk but I know how to run. 
You want me to stop, but I know how to have some fun. 
I don't know how to listen to you for you don't know how to talk.. 
You can't listen to me because to myself.. I talk.
 I go on exploring this world so full of me.. I don't have time for yours.
 Perhaps you should do too and then you wouldn't be so busy with me.
You can't catch me for I am the wind.. I blow, I flow and wrap everything around me in my own air.
Wrapped in my own imperfections.. I am free.

Holding on to the desire to let go

Image
I don't know if there are some more people like me ,who are perpetually embroiled in an existential quest to find the meaning of their lives.People who often wake up with thousands of questions,  about where their life is heading,where would they want to go,what would they like to be...
People who experience a sense of vacuum in their lives along with the never ending struggle to fill that vacuum.
People like me,whose lives are filled with dozens of 'I don't know' responses.. And sometimes this state of not knowing feels like a thousand daggers across the heart.
I mean how can you not know?
It's your life,your space,your dreams and hopes and all you can say is 'I don't know'.
What do you want? Why do you want it?Why don't you want it?What do you want to do ? And so many more questions with just one answer...I Don't know.
How long will this not knowing last? And to that also,you get an 'I don't know'.
So then how will you become what you need t…

Women and Weight!

Image
Have you ever stopped and wondered about  what all you have to do each and every day? When was the last time you did something that you enjoy and actually enjoyed it? Don't you also think about the time when you used to be fit, active, slim, used to exercise, look good and feel good about yourself?

Often when you look at yourself now,you are clouded with negative thoughts about yourself. You wonder, "Where has all the time gone? Will it ever come back? Have I become less attractive than before? Why am I putting on weight? What can I do about it? Will I be able to do something about it?" or perhaps, you have just one thought," let it be..who cares".
Women are increasingly becoming more and more susceptible to hormonal imbalances and weight issues. Being overweight not only impacts their physical appearance, but psychological and emotional well-being as well. At some point or the other, all women have gone through this feeling of low self-esteem and a certain amoun…
