Far far away in your world
Eyes, Nor warm, neither cold
They are hiding something
Must have been a sharp sting
Warmth becomes indifference
Sharp change in beings
Things end in blink of eyes
Only the memories remain
Sitting so close yet
Hearts feel the space
It’s only growing in size
You cannot control the pace
You were thrilled once to see them
Now it’s nothing but intense hate
You can’t seem to stand them now
Though she still waits for that gaze
You may outgrow the feelings
You may outgrow the love
You may outgrow the moments
Or It could be just a distant blur
My eyes struggled to open
As I woke up today
The first thought was as usual only yours
I quietly try to gather these feelings
I close my eyes again
Only to form your visuals on my mind
I see you too are looking at me sometimes for me
Such imaginary thoughts seem to satisfy the soul
I thus gathered some strength
To start with the day ahead
I stumbled trying to stand up
Stretched out my hand for you to grasp
I listened to the songs
They once were ours
I even listened to the new ones
They were full of hatred and dark
The gloom that surrounds
Is bound to break the soul
But what is love
Without its miseries and woes
Throughout the days and nights
I feel right next to you
Although it is imaginary but,
I am happy to be with you
His smiles radiate at her as soon as he sees her walking towards him
His smile enough to make any human being calm
His cheeks gleaming, eyes bright and beaming full of love
His forehead glowing and chin is shining bright, nose like the roman’s
She wondered how he would have fondness for someone like herself
She only smiled back at him maybe she was thinking out loud
Oh but wait what is going on in his head
Its’ actually the same thing that she was reasoning within herself
He showed her the world one she’d never dreamt of
Her world never seemed so perfect, she couldn’t reason how
As quickly as the time flew by when she was in his embrace
He gave her something which was only written in tales
She told him, when I am with you, I feel I am flying high
He said, no you aren’t too deep into this yet, maybe you don’t know why
The doubts kept surmounting both the hearts until one of them couldn’t take it more
She wondered why they said there’s a thin line between love and hate, she still was unsure
He never left her wondering for long
Showed equal loads of repulsion that was beyond just strong
Assumptions killed two beautiful souls
Never to be mended never to be sewn
At last only thing she had captured within
The only moments she could take with her
His smiles that keep radiating through it all
Only the smiles that kept that kept radiating through it all
Sometimes you would feel that you’re not moving
Don’t worry, hang in there you’re still changing every second
Sometimes the time feels its not shifting
Trust me you are still different and more than special
At times you’d feel you’re standing still
Trust its meant to be for now and keep standing through it all
You may think yourself similar to what you were yesterday
You do know you are changing you eternally revamp from within
For if you ever feel you’re adrift,
Think of yourself taking a pause just to improve self
After a long haul I am back again. Actually had been busy with a few things. But genuinely wanted to write as soon as I could. This post is about my summer essentials. My top picks, have a look.
White tees– The most basic yet the most useful for dreaded summers especially in India. White also being my favorite color, I stick mostly to it throughout the summer. It goes with skirts jeans shorts culottes, in short it goes with everything.
White Jeans– Easy breezy and stylish to the Tee. Team up with colorful polo tees or basic tees. I basically love how it looks. It’s on my wishlist.
Culottes– Culottes are my new favorite. After my sister showed her pair of culottes to me last year and I gave it a try I discovered how comfortable and stylish these are. Great to wear indoors as well as outdoors, Culottes are in trend and keep the heat at bay.
Skirts/shorts/sundress– I am more of a shorts person but I do like to wear skirts and dresses once in a while too. Choose your best, according to what makes you feel good about you.
Flip-flops– colorful or simple whichever you like. I personally like the basic grey or black ones.
Linen clothes– especially the PJs. I loooooooove linen in summers, such a cool and breezy fabric and super light on the skin too.
Sunblock lotion– Must must must have at all the times in all your bags and should be applied at least 3-4 times a day 30 minutes before stepping out in the sun. I have been using Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sun block SPF 50+. This works best on my type of skin. It leaves no oily or patchy feeling behind and is a fine matte finish. It also doesn’t make skin look dark or dull. I have been very satisfied with this overall as it reduces suntan and sun burn to a great extent. Buy here- http://bit.ly/2qIrIan
Lip balm– My go to beauty item whenever the face need a little lift. I am using Maybelline Baby Lips Color Balm – Pink Lolita. Just the perfect tint of color for the day. Neither too bright nor too dull. Okay so it wouldn’t be exaggeration to say that I am addicted to this lip balm for years now. It makes lips look fuller, it has SPF 20, also has mild fragrance, carefully repairs damaged lips and lasts up to 8 hours. Buy here- http://bit.ly/2qmhGsD
Sunglasses– so what’s your pick? Classic aviators or Wayfarers. That could be any of it but make sure it is UV protected so that your eyes get the basic shade and protection they need from harsh summer sunrays.
Water and water based drinks– Water, lemon water, cold water, normal water, tea infused water, detox water. I swear by all kinds of water based coolers especially the ones that are sugar free since unknowingly we consume a lot of sugar in our drinks and ice creams which actually instead of cooling us down increases the body heat. So make sure you watch what you consume. Stay healthy happy and fit!

I was feeling obscure, although the mind was looking for a cure.
Reasons known unknown to my heart,
All the promises were broken right from the start.
I craved for a sense of belongingness,
Wish I knew hearts are capable of creating a mess.
As dark as hell as hot as sun,
No other place no land I crawl I walk I run.
Heart feels heavy head is full of clouds,
Where is all the hope love and how am I going to rise above my doubts.
The world seems opaque right now, I want to rise up see the rays
Want to see a sky lit up with love peace and harmony, Without any signs of greys.
Have you ever climbed on top of a hill or maybe just rock? I have and guess what it made me feel like. It made me feel heavier than I thought I was and it showed me where I stood in front of nature. I was feeling so weak when I started. At first it was bouts of heavy breathing and self doubt and worry about falling from the rocks, but heck I just had to do it. My hands were hurting my legs were literally shaking and my throat never felt so dry.
What looked like an easy climb was much tougher when I finally got started. But I didn’t want to let go. Who was I doing this for? Myself. Yes. Just for myself.
It was an experience an exhilarating one of course but worth it. And when I reached the finish line post the climbing, the mini me was waiting there to share this little victory and we were smiling at each other to push ourselves enough for the day. It was a beautiful day indeed.
These are the days when I feel like a potato. Too lazy to wake up too lazy to stand up and too lazy to start the day. Summers have got to me somehow earlier than I was expecting. However a simple thought or idea can change my mood. Last evening it was a quick stroll to the park. These days its all the more better to go to the park since the kids have started playing different sports at evenings. Badminton, throw ball, cricket, handball etc.
It gives a different kind of high to watch all of the vibrancy and frolic around me. I usually stay indoors through the day but evenings I make a point to drag myself out and take a short or a long walk. Just walk somehow, it helps. I see the elderly people taking walks stopping in between for a break or a chit chat with the fellow walker. I used to feel amused because I am not much of a talker but somehow I started enjoying looking at them too.
Then there is this group of girls who walk walk walk and talk talk talk. They never cease to amaze me. Firstly because all of them dress up so nicely and tidely and secondly because they are an inspiration to me. They smile they laugh wholeheartedly and even have serious discussions in between.
Then there are the loners who won’t talk but keep staring. I smile at them too even when they wont smile back. Going there fills me up with a positive vibe somehow.
I didn’t have anything to share about trends this time so see you guys next week. Till then. Keep walking 🙂
