Died Not Dead

How does an ocean of love
Evaporate
And leave behind a desert?
Those precious nights, those pure moments
When two souls collided in love
A mesmerizing explosion, a supernova
How can they leave behind nothing but a vacuum,
A black hole in your chest?

30 Day Emotional Detox​ – Day 1. Rope Of Hope

Hi There!

I have decided to go on a 30-day emotional detox. Which means that for the next 30 days I will only think, speak or write positive things, only watch positive videos or movies, only read positive books and treat myself well. I will remind myself to be grateful for the things I have and focus on the things that I want in life. I am sure negative thoughts or information will come my way but I will make an effort to walk away from them and only focus on good things. The most difficult part of the detox and the most important one will be making a conscious and continuous effort to only feel positive emotions. Any time I encounter a negative emotion, I will do my best to walk away from it and shift my thoughts and eventually my emotions towards a positive direction. I will do things that make me happy and maybe once in a while even pamper myself. How is that for authentic? 😉

Missing Pieces

More than the People I have lost,
More than the times that are gone,
More than the dreams I dreamed
That fade away with the dawn,
I miss what they took away from me.

They say live, I am someone who has,
They talk about life-enriching experiences
And all the nobility they give
But they don’t tell you what it takes.
I miss what they took away from me.

When I Swallowed​ The Warm Yellow Pill

I swallowed a warm yellow pill today,

It went down my aching sore throat,

Like a soup made of warm love,

Soothing, caressing, easing the pain.

It filled my chest with the sun shine,

Clearing the cold cobwebs of winters,

Walking Through The Fog

When the fog is so thick,
That it blinds you,
And you can’t see the path ahead,
Walk forward anyway.
It’s just gloom, not a Gate that blocks your way,
And what else is there to do
but walk?

For The Sun To Shine Again

We wish for the clouds to part,
And the sun to come out and warm the heart,
But a perfect sunny day never comes like that.
Gentle parting of the clouds gives luminescence of hope,
But not the illuminating fresh start.

Mangata

Her eyes were a shade of grayish blue tonight

Like a cloudy sky on a melancholy evening.

Tears lingered on the edges of those skies

like heavy clouds filled to the brink with rain

Yet never falling,

Glittering like the ocean in the moonlight,

When I Met Maheshmurti Leni Sahebrao Jadhav (Leni)

Maheshmurti Leni Sahebrao Jadhav (Leni)

Sometimes we meet someone, a complete stranger and something good happens, we feel lighter and more cheerful, almost hopeful, in their presence. Meeting Leni is very much like that, just by being around her, you feel good, positive. She has this infectious cheerful energy but that energy does not come from innocence or naivety. After only a few conversations, you can tell, she has seen the ugly unkindness of life and you can tell, she has stayed strong through it all. It’s so great meeting people who have been tested by life a number of times, but life has still not managed to rob them of their energy or dim their light.

There Is Hope

It is messy, too messy a fight

The process of getting from wrong to right

The ruination of what is, for the inception of something better

And even then it is a game of trial and error
