    "And like the moon, we
    must go through phases
    of emptiness to feel
    full again."

    A bare heart

    I’m sitting with a piece of paper
    Trying to get my feelings out
    But I leave it blank for hours,
    “Am I human?” I ask in doubt;

    Holding the pen in my hand
    Thinking what to write
    But I feel so empty inside
    That I can’t describe;

    My heart’s a bare land
    I guess so
    Cause I can’t feel a thing
    Neither warmth, angriness nor woe;

    You love to write, as there is no one to listen to your plight. You talk to the shampoo bottles at night, because there is no one to whisper to you, "go to sleep its alright". You want to hug someone tight, but in the vicinity of your sight, even then an argument with the blank lifeless walls at three midnight makes your burden a little light. You hug yourself tight, and whisper to yourself, "got to sleep, its alright".

    But tell me honestly, is it actually alright? Didn't you weep that night? now you shall start with a 'ummm...... maybe' or a 'might'. But what about that feeling That universal feeling? Of drowning in your own thoughts, being crushed by the burden of your own dreams, being hanged by a chain of expectations and its insanity, actuality, reality and its brutality, taking a pill of truth and not being able to swallow it, for its bitter, being diabetic in your life, for all the sugary lies, for its sweeter, maintaining a balance between East & West, North & South. Why don't you speak up? Why don't you let it out? Whom are you afraid of? You, me or all of us?

    'कल' के वादों में जाने कितने आज निकल गये,
    उनकी बेपरवाही देखकर भी लबों पे हसी है क्योंकि बेरुखी और दर्द तो दिल में राज़ बनकर ही रह गए|

    "ANOTHER HEART TO LOSE"
    [lyrics written by: Amal Michel].
    I thought we had it all but I was so wrong
    Though my heart was worth giving to you
    But what you did, what you did
    It damn well almost near killed me you know,
    I thought my heart was worth the risk
    But you broke me before I even got to say "I love you".

    And now I realize that
    Your not the man I thought you were no
    Coz you were just, coz you were just
    Another heart to lose, oh you were just
    Another heart ache for me, you were another heart to lose.

    No, you didn't love me, you didn't love me
    I guess I'm the one to blame
    No wait a minute how was I supposed to know
    That you'd be the one to turn around
    And break me like this, how was I supposed to know
    That you'd be the one to turn around
    And hurt me like this, you hurt me like that.

    And now I realize that
    Your not the man I thought you were no
    Coz you were just, coz you were just
    Another heart to lose, oh you were just
    Another heart ache for me, you were another heart to lose.

    I thought that what I gave to you was what you needed
    I thought it was enough for you to love me
    The way that I wanted you to but you
    You said it wasn't enough, no I wasn't enough
    It wasn't enough for me to keep you
    From breaking my heart.

    And now I realize that
    Your not the man I thought you were no
    Coz you were just, coz you were just
    Another heart to lose, oh you were just
    Another heartache for me, you were another heart to lose.

    Colder than ice!

    The numbness that stays, like a cold winter
    Where feelings are dreams, far away
    I wish I could feel what I felt before
    The tenderness of affection,
    The tenderness of love,
    But, all I could feel is numbness and dessert consuming me.

    I could remember, but it's a curse that never ends
    Being reminded of everything old, while it's still new.

    This emptiness, this numbness, when will it ever end ?

    It's hope that makes me stay awake, stay alive!
    Will I ever wake up ? From the curse of stone cold numbness!

    *Hope I find pain, love and tenderness*

    Silence after a smile!

    Did it ever occur to you, the depth in silence after a smile?

    A sense of hindrance, a feel of caution that stays awhile.

    The fear of falling , falling deep into the river of darkness

    Fear of lying deep all alone, your ideas being hostile.


    How do you explain such phenomenon to someone?

    When everyone you meet makes you feel like no-one.

    The only feeling you feel is the feeling of emptiness

    When the pain that's growing inside you is known to none.


    Can somebody tell me what it takes to feel happy again?

    Not the kind where I compete my fading smile to retain.

    Sitting with my friends but holding hands with loneliness

    Camoflaging my tears as I sit under the scourging rain.

    Depth of my heart

    I wish if I wouldn't have met you that day
    My life was so much better before
    I wish if I could've denied talking to you
    Then forgetting you would be much easier

    I fell for you but I know you don't feel the same
    And in any case I will never confess
    Even though I have to live with the pain
    As I am not ready to lose myself for you

    I will keep on making excuses to ignore you
    So that you will leave by your own
    And I will keep watching you go far away
    Even though my heart sinks inside for you

    I wish if I could share all my feelings to you
    But I don't expect you to understand them
    I know that you will leave like the others
    And I will be left alone like I've always been.

    I saw him, yes today he wasn't same. There was something very different in his body language. I bet, he was much happier and much more lively and honestly, I was very happy to see him like this. Why wouldn't I be, I always wanted to see him cheerful. He doesn't know I follow him to this very place almost at every opportunity available, to check upon him and no, he doesn't know that, I still read him like I used to.

    We were trapped both of us in a situation that wasn't good for any of us and like the milk, that boils out of the pot after a pressure, we parted the ways. I have seen him sad, guilty and even crying but from a distance. I wanted to go running and embrace all his fears but I couldn't get myself to forgive him. Alas now I am happy, it took all these years but I am happy for him. You know why I never moved on? Because I couldn't let him face this alone, practically, I did made him alone but my heart knows, it was always with him. We have hurt eachother to the extremes and things got so out of hand that nothing could be fixed. You see now I am happy, and you notice that girl besides him, she has helped him heal and I see him look at her the same way, like he used to see me. Isn't he cute this way? I bet he has learned from his mistake, for he is much kinder to her than he used to be.

    The cage is empty now, the love bird has left to find itself a new home. Let us it keep aside, for no matter however beautiful the bars are colored, it reminds me of the bitter fact that, we often attempt multiple times, to cage the love we think we deserve and that is the worst mistake we commit. Love birds need no cages because when they leave, that empty space brings in the shadows of repentance. You can hide the cages, but how are you gonna deny the very fact that you once have experienced this feeling. And now since he has freed himself I too free myself from this past of ours.

    Adieu my lover for we have spent a great time in this cage.

    In the end you will be left with nothing
    and that will be the heaviest feeling .......

    When someone enters in your closest one's life, it makes you feel abandoned.
    But it's a fact that you couldn't be replaced if you were on the same page with equal determination to be together forever. Still you got replaced then its as simple as that you weren't meant to be together.
    Its like some people are those stars whom you can't have in your destiny, no matter how much you try.

    I CURSE YOU HAPPINESS

    You broke me
    Which I didn't expect to foresee
    The pieces don't even know their story
    Who once enjoyed their glory
    No touch no prayers can heal
    The wounds reciting their ordeal
    I curse you happiness
    Ignited from my emptiness
    Rising like a phoenix
    Singing some unsung lyrics
    Of my ashes
    Dumped straight into the trashes
    Each episode of your smile
    Should pause you for a while
    To remind you
    My tears are hid in dew
    And its not a benediction but a curse
    Beginning of the end that's worse

    Just empty at times,
    When every tick of clock sounds like a roar...
    And tinkling of wind chimes,
    Don't seem peaceful anymore...

    I do things, but they go in vain.
    Like searching water in a desert terrain.
    Sun shines, but rays don't reach my lane.
    Wind blows, but I feel none again.

    When nothing seems to fill,
    The emptiness that wanders...
    Will have to keep going until,
    I find an end to the ladders!

    Tactics

    My nest of fire burns bright
    I live inside this miserable skin
    drowning while lighting a cigarette
    smoke marks my lobes
    scarring every word I release
    smiling at this emptiness
    veins run dry, ashes to dust
    I trim my hair
    opening my legs with blatant lust
    too lonely to believe
    mentally undone
    my words kill the insane
    desperate tactics overall have finally won
    soaking wet
    my blood sits in this puddle
    as I watch it, it rains
    leave me in peace
    I've made my choice
    now let me lay here
    I need not want your help
    I am not felt
    I wither alone forever
    my last hand was dealt

    The popular saying, it gets better with time doesn't feel true to me.
    You see time is a series of infinite numbers that does not stop counting.
    How can the emotion you're feeling get better when it still resides in your beating heart?
    When you're alive and each breath you take serves as a constant reminder?
    I'm not sure how it gets better, but one thing I'm sure of is that as each number depletes and the time moves ahead, you get used to it.
    You get accustomed with living with what you feel.
    It doesn't get bearable, it becomes a normality.
    It doesn't feel like the first time because it's not the first time.
    Countless repetition of the same feeling makes it null and void.
    Like the emptiness in your chest.

    Empty

    A silent wave hits her heart,
    Bringing about the numbness in her soul.
    A whirlwind of emotions,
    Leading her towards life's wormhole.
    Her hands are now cold, just like the breeze in the shore.
    And she can't feel a thing anymore.
    Its nothingness that she's been dealing,
    Mere words cannot describe her feeling.
    She isn't upset, she isn't angry,
    But she just feels like a deep dry well;
    Empty and empty!

    The way heart feels the emptiness of sky
    a part of myself will always drown in your eyes

    Boring

    That feeling of -

    1) Not being able to 'Connect' with anyone's mind/heart &

    2) Really wanting to 'Fill the emptiness' inside us and feel good about Self.

    Moral of the story ?

    People around should stop 'Pretending' to have a Happy Life.
