I fear Love

Walk Into My Life
And hold my trembling fingers

Steady my shaky hands
Pamper this terrified heart, my dear

I fear love today…

 

Sit beside me today

And listen to my untold plead

Sing a lullaby to me

Let the fear in me go to sleep

I fear love today…

 

Hold my hand wantingly

And let me draw circles on your palm

Caress me in your arms

Let the spell of your breath dance

I fear love today….

Tonight!

I am blank,
I have no idea how long we are here!

But, while we are here,
I want the time to go a little slow,
I want the breeze to be a little cold,
I want the moon to really glow!

While we are here,
I want you to stay
I want you to love me
I want you to be, Just be!

But,
Tonight please do not kiss me
just look into my eyes and tell me that you miss me!

Tonight please do not touch me
just tell me about your day but do not forget to whisper in my ear that you love me!

Tonight, do not leave a hickey on me!
just look at my scars and tell me how to heal them!

tonight, Just be here!
where it’s you
where there is me
and where there is love!

tonight, just stay here!
where it’s raining
where there is music
and where there is love!

tonight, just hold me!
When it’s dark
When there is no hope
and when there is love, in you!

I am blank,
I have no idea how long we are here!

But, while we are here,
Be mine!
Only mine!

The Son I Would Never Have

This not a poetry or a prose. This is something that I have seen so much lately that I just wanted to put it out!

I grew up in the body of a lady
I grew up with the life of a lady
I looked at the world like a lady
and
I loved men like a lady!

The men that I loved were
my father,
my brother,
my friend,
and
my lover.

Every time I came across these beautiful souls
with disturbed minds
I found the Son I would never have!

He will never look at a woman and rate her on her looks
He will never look at a woman and rate her on her clothes
He would not slut shame
He would not disrespect!

He will stand up for what he wants
He will stand up for what he believes in!

He would not mind crying if his heart is broken
He would not mind giving in at times if needed
He will listen to others
and
He will listen to his heart too!

Tomorrow,
When I have a son
I will never ask him to man up!
I will never ask him to grow balls!
I will never ask him to stay strong!
I will never ask him to not cry!

Today,
When I am with my men,
I will let them cry in my arms,
I will let them laugh their hearts out,
I will let them sing the songs of broken soul,
I will let them be them!

I just want to lay beside you!

Tonight father, I want to lay beside you!
I do not want to talk,
I do not wish to cry,
I do not want to smile.
I just want to lay beside you!

Tonight, I want to fill the room with silence.
I do not want you to ask me what happened,
I do not want you to ask me why it happened,
I do not want to speak.
I just want to lay beside you!

Tonight I do not feel like myself,
I just want the time to fly slowly,
I just want the night to stand still
I just want the world to slowly fade away!
I just want to lay beside you!

tonight I just want to
stay,
stay here,
stay quiet,
stay still!
I just want to lay beside you!

It just does not feel right.
It just does not feel mine.
tonight,
It just does not feel right!

Dad, I know you have believed in me.
During the toughest fight, you have been with me.
You have held my hand,
and brought me back to my feet.
But tonight,
I just want you to lay beside me!

Dad, I know it makes you cry,
When you see me hiding when I suppose to be the knight.
But tonight my sword seems weak,
But trust me tomorrow I will be the king!

But tonight,
I want you to trust me.

But tonight,
I just want you to lay beside me!

Day 4: Society and everything wrong with it!

I know the moment you read the title a series of ending thoughts, complaints and rants started going through your head. But, let me tell you this one important thing! Whatever you are thinking, is abso-f**king-lutely right.

Most of our rants have some strong bases. They either come from something that we have experienced, seen or read about. But, what are we actually doing to change the things? Are you really fighting against the unjust on children or underprivileged or even on your friends? Or is it that your solution to all their problems is, “Everything is going yo fine soon.” Basically, words that are good to my ears but do nothing great to my life!

 

Here, My Dear Friends, I wish to highlight something that we see every day but happily ignore!

  1. We the INDEPENDENT creatures!
    Think, ARE WE REALLY INDEPENDENT???
    Knowingly or unknowingly we have become dependent on technology. This baby, that we gave birth to with so many expectations, is in reality, outgrowing us!
    we have become SLAVE to its existence!

2. Food of LIKES!

Social media has now become the most essential factor for survival followed by food, clothing, and shelter.  I have seen people feeling restless because of the lesser number of like on their profile picture and people committing suicide because of some comment on their online content!

3. Words without feels!

I have seen couples put long captions on cute pictures of each other and how much they miss each other when apart. It is super cute and I do feel jealous at times too but I start feeling better as soon as I see them in real life.
Stuck on the phone, have nothing to talk about and barely know each other. Love is lost in the words and sex has become easily available. The connection is lost in the world of connectivity!!

SOCIETY AND EVERYTHING WRONG WITH IT 3

4. The Illusion of Perfection!

The Internet has created an illusion of perfection! Slim body, perfect hair, sculpted face and lavish lifestyle! We all are trapped in this illusion. We are so much in love with the idea of someone else that we forget to love ourselves. Craving for own good is alright, but idealizing something which not even real but a mere mirage is wrong!
So love your own self, your surrounding, and your life!

SOCIETY AND EVERYTHING WRONG WITH IT 4

5. The ruthless rulers!

We all have gotten used to a lifestyle where we are ruled instead of getting guidance and almost all our activities are dependent on reactions of others. One of the biggest rulers we have had is our parents. They mold us, break us, make us and above all life decisions are dependent on them!
be there for them but do not be dependent on them!

Day 2: Old friend and New Memories!

Out of all the things that are changing around us one thing that we do not want to change is our friends! Especially the ones that were there for you since the beginning of They are the true example of the proverb, “Old Is Gold.” Friends are like a family that God had forgotten to add to the list of people related to us by blood. But again friends come in different shapes, sizes, colors, races and even sometimes in shape of a dog!

Truly speaking, the older I am getting, the lesser are the number of people I am constantly in touch with and hence, the fewer friends I have. With the growing age, I have also understood the value of friendship. Not only the friendship that I share with the outer world but also the kind I have with myself! Definition of a true friend has however changed a lot for the growing generation!

In today’s world, these are those people whom you can tag you in an unlimited number of memes and they are said to be the best if they reply and react to every one of those memes. And you are the luckiest if they tag you back in a huge number of memes too! But for me, friends are the people who know how crazy you can be at times but still take you for who you are. That too just not on a Snapchat/Instagram filter but also in real life. They are your therapist, your support system, your laughter zone, your crying pillow, not only that, they would curse the person you do not like with you and also help you stalk through your exes and tell you why you were stupid!

But not everybody is lucky enough to find a friend that close.

I know many of us come from a category who have been deceived by a friend and gotten our hearts broken by the only person we thought was worth the efforts and loved them with all our hearts. To you people, do not give up on the human existence yet. There might be a friend hidden behind the mask of a stranger. Keep looking out for them, do not stop hoping, and always keep trusting. The bad world must not kill the good you.

And to those who do not have friends, who find it difficult to interact with people, who have tried but failed, I have one very beautiful friend for you. That friend is no one else but yourself! I am not going to ask you to go out and try or talk to random people or write or read. All I wish you do is, talk to yourself, hug yourself, love yourself, pamper yourself, scold yourself, but before anything else, UNDERSTAND YOURSELF! Rest everything else will be automatically taken care of.

I want all you guys to remember,

YOU ARE YOUR OLDEST FRIEND! AND YOU ARE THE ONE RESPONSIBLE FOR MAKING NEW MEMORIES WITH YOURSELVES!

 

And also,

I am always here to listen to your stories and experiences, feel free to write me anytime at talktodharti@gmail.com!
