    There's a transparent ocean in your eyes.
    So many things left unsaid tossed in the waves as I steal glances,
    always afraid of touching what lies in the dark, dangerous and foreboding.

    My anxiety sits in a corner.
    It reminds me that there's a good reason to be wary because I am the only one who ends up getting hurt when it comes to you.

    I have never known the address of your heart, even though it shares the same street as mine. Your house is not in the same realm of existence and I cannot visit or walk through the garden because it is always closed to me.
    Full of poisonous plants and predatory creatures who would hunt me for sport, the prey creature that I have become.

    It seems that I have forgotten
    I used to be a lion.
    When did I discard my claws and fangs?
    Where did I misplace the roar that would make the bravest hunter shake in his dungarees, running for sanctuary?

    There's a transparent ocean in your eyes and I misjudged its depth.
    Now I am doing my best not to drown as I sink to the bottom.

    I have never known the address of your heart, even though it shares the same street as mine.
    Your house is not in the same realm of existence and I cannot visit or walk through the garden because it is always closed to me.
    It sits vacant,
    full of poisonous plants and predatory creatures who would hunt me for sport, the prey creature that I have become.

    •• और ये वो सच्चाई है जिसे हम जितना भी झुठलाएं,
    वो बदल नहीं सकती ।
    हम खुद कभी न कभी, कही न कही ये बात अच्छे से जानते भी है ।
    मानते भी है भले कुछ वक्त के लिए ।
    कभी उससे भागते भी है,
    लेकिन ये डोर से पैर में बंधा हुआ वो फंदा है
    जो जितना भागो उतना पीछा करता रहता है ।
    तकलीफ देता रहता है ।
    वक्त के साथ उसकी आदत भी हो जाती है,
    और साथ ही रूह पर
    उसके निशान भी बन जाते हैं ।

    असलियत

    जाने या अनजाने
    हम अक्सर दूसरों के मिटते वजूद में
    अपनी खुशी ढूंढते रहते हैं ।
    बात थोड़ी कड़वी सी है, पर सोचा जाएं
    तो उतनी ही सच भी है ।

    जलता हुआ दिया हो
    या दूसरे की डोर को काटकर फिर खुद कही
    कचरे में शामिल होने वाली कागज की पतंग हो ।
    आसमान में टूटता हुआ तारा हो
    या आग में जलकर खाक होने वाली लकड़ी हो ।

    उनका जल जाना, मिट जाना, तारतार हो जाना
    कही न कही उन सब में हम अपनी खुशी ढूंढ लेते है ।

    एक ना दूसरी तरफ से
    हम कभी मासूम से शिकार होते है,
    तो कभी जाने अनजाने खुद में दबे हुएं
    खूंखार शिकारी भी होते हैं ।

  • mystery_in_words 23w

    Tonight seems awfully quiet
    Silence, like a ringing in my ears
    As loud as it gets at funerals
    As corpses lay in houses, dead or asleep -
    Who cares?
    As long as the monsters are asleep
    Hunting away in their dreams.
    I step out leaving my coat and scarf behind
    In clothes that let me breathe,
    The same clothes that predators sniff
    The supposed pull of a predator to a prey
    A prey that is not cold but covers itself;
    Not tonight, though.
    Tonight,
    I stand over their graves
    The rustle of leaves singing goodbyes
    As my skin breathes.

    Last but not the least, there's a very important quality that stands out. He becomes intimate with you physically to please you not himself. You will find him asking you plenty of questions about what you find appealing in a foreplay, and while in the intimate moments with you, he won't be concerned about fulfilling his physical desires, he will be real gentle with you. He will ask you things like "do you like this?", "tell me what you want me to do". He will let you be in charge, he will ask you guide him to please yourself. He will pretend "neutral" or "resistant", and his trick will be to let you seduce yourself through him. He will just be a tool for you, to explore your own body. This increases the female pleasure points inside the brain to its limits, and you might find him most romantic. Whereas the truth is, it's you doing all the work, guiding him, and letting him "know" you in whole. This is a simple phenomena, it's called "reverse psychology": letting the girl to seduce. A mirage of letting the girl know, it's her in charge. Where in reality it's other way around.

    I can't cover the entire ice berg through this tiny write up, its just the peak of the ice berg but it contains all the essential information/ observation. I hope this helps you in some way or the other. I pray you never experience this kind of toxic men, most of you won't and it's good. But if some of you do come across these kind of men who treats women as "subjects", then I hope this little piece of information will help you identify them and recognize them (and their tricks) before you get too involved.

    Thank you for reading :)

    Be aware of anyone who "studies" you and tries to be intimate with you. Don't let emotions come, in the way of judgement, know his intentions. It's very unlikely that you will meet this category of men, they are rare. But if you do, then just be yourself, your very unique self, and NOT JUST A GIRL. Do NOT think like a girl, but think like your unique self. If he's being mysterious, lose him immediately instead of trying to solve his mystery. Notice what feelings he arouses in you.
    Is he lifting you off your feet through feelings?
    Is he coming online at a specific time to talk to you?
    Is he trying to get you in some kind of habits?
    Is he making you wonder about him often?
    Is he doing things which don't match with his words?
    Is he expecting you to make the first move?
    Is he trying to get sympathy and pity for him?
    Is he trying to be intimate with you without any strings attached?
    Is he saying stuff like "you are mature enough to understand", "we are grown ups now, it's okay", "don't be childish, it's normal"?
    Is he being very courteous and extra polite, yet flirty?
    Is he a box of mystery, or a bundle of "different ideologies"?

    You will be infatuated with him, deeply. It appears as if he's this room, with the doors slightly open for you to peak through. You will feel as if he's filled with treasures, he has so much more to share with you. But if you notice carefully, you can see, he never opens his door! Its always slightly open, you can never take a good look at the inside of the room! That's what keeps his mystery alive, he keeps you guessing. He lives in your imagination. At times your heart will tell you all this with him, is wrong, even if it seems so proper from outside. Even if it all appears harmless, so courteous and so gentle; it has the power to deform your identity. And whatever changes your identity, is the greatest threat in life.

    Once his little game is over and his purpose with you is fulfilled, he will leave you. I know most boys leave, but this leaving will be different I assure you. When a boy leaves, it's not that bad, you have yourself and many others to support you and love you, you get over it, and often many alternative things fills the void. But when someone leaves you, after studying you, understanding you, and using that knowledge about you to manipulate your very identity according to his needs, and then leaving you; it's gonna create a void within you that can't be filled for a long long time. You will look at the mirror and won't recognize yourself anymore, the person you are now is a new one which he created, and you don't know what to do with. You will miss the "past you". The kind of numbness you will feel will be loud and intolerable. You will be having difficulty taking tiny decisions in life, because of identity loss. You will feel its him who completes you, but now that he's gone, you will be forever incomplete. That's half truth, he have changed a part in you, to create a new you. You will find your life completely changed, and you will miss your old life, old you. You will have severe trust issues, and will be afraid of all men in general. Anyone who displays the slightest similarities of him, will appear either as a threat or as someone who evokes mixed feelings in you. You will start questioning the fundamentals of life, and you will find yourself confused about where "you went wrong". His after effects will remain with you for a long time. Healing yourself will be utterly difficult, and you won't be able to allow any other men enter your life for a long time.

    These men are cold hearted Bastards, and you are just a number in their long list. They won't even remember your name, but he will be the world to you for a long long time.

    Gradually over the time, you will find him behave unexpectedly, and it's hard to predict how he will behave. He always says the "right" things at the "right" time. But even after spending so much time, you never fully understand what he wants from you, you feel so many things, yet logically it's too swallow. A genuine person will make sense both logically and emotionally, he won't be a puzzle, or this interesting, any genuine person tend to be a bit of boring, because you can predict them. However, these Bastards are unpredictable, they react violently through the use of firm words. They seldom explain themselves, or over explain themselves for the reason why they did what they did. Through these tiny and subtle reactions from them, which apparently originated due to the "way you behaved" in a certain way, they are trying to "shape" you. They want you to "change", so that you can fit into the box they have created for you, the kind of box that's most suitable for them. Most of these fuckers are playboys disguised as "gentlemen". Stay with them long enough, and you can't recognizing yourself anymore. They will manipulate your entire identity, and that's where the danger lies. Identity is the most vital thing that you have developed over the years, and a real partner will help you "develop" your identity and let you "grow". He won't try to "shape" your identity into something different and urge you to "change". In most cases, these men tend not to get into a relationship in the first place, most of them are into "no strings attached" until we develop feelings/get to know each other.

    I know its difficult to point out accurately, but let me help you spot one. He will be really great in flirting, usually he will start from text msgs. The way he flirts feels different, something you have never experienced before, different from other men. He knows how to be "fun" and not make himself appear "funny". He will compliment you usually after a long conversation, and his compliments will never be direct. It will be subtle, such as "that ear ring you wore last night, looked so good on you, what was the occasion?". You will find yourself remembering yourself and looking at yourself through his eyes, may be blush a little, and give him an answer or a statement instead of a "thank you", simply because he will never give direct compliments. Moreover, you have to "earn" his compliments, when he thinks you are at a certain point which serves his purpose, he will give you a subtle compliment, it's actually an "encouragement" for your cooperation. In his chats, he will usually talk with one liners, and will take proper time to reply back (to keep you waiting for him, to keep you craving for him). His replies will "hit" you and make you "think", to keep you "hooked". The conversations won't last long, it's always limited. If he's a pro, he will always talk to you at the same time everyday, repeatedly, to make you get into the habit of feeling his presence at a particular time. Suddenly after some time of repeated conversation with limited time in specific times, he will disappear for a day or two (not long). He won't explain you beforehand, his disappearance will be a "surprise" for you. And during the time you used to talk, you will feel restless and his absence will be terribly felt. Then suddenly when he appears, you will be overwhelmed, almost tears of joy. His game is designed to give you these roller coaster rides. Moreover, these fuckers seldom propose, they usually make the girl propose them. Not with force or pleading, but with strategic manipulations, tiny push giving them directions.
    Some make use the weapon of "smell". They will put on the same perfume every time they meet you, over and over again. It's called "smell association". It makes your olfactory nervous system attach a particular scent to his persona, his image. This is a very sophisticated technique, to trigger your memories about him, years after he left you. The moment you smell something similar to what he have made you get acquainted, you can remember clearly, his features, the moments you shared with him, the way your heart beats were running wild, and the way he touched you. Everything becomes alive, even after he's gone. It's like leaving his signature within you forever, a mark, a scar on your identity, which is his creation!

    These kind of men tend to be the most charming, he will appear to you as if its he alone in this entire world who understands you like an open book, even if you met him for the first time 3 days ago. They tend to quickly build an "image" of themselves in your mind, and you can't help but fall for his image, your own imagination. These men also tend to be "mysterious", as if there's a lot about them to know, they will keep you on your toes, always curious to "know more" about them. These Bastards are also great storytellers, they will tell excellent stories about how they had lost all hope in love after their ex cheated on them, how they are "survivors" in relationships, and how they are looking for that "one girl". They will make you feel special beyond your wildest imaginations, because they study you as a "subject" as treat you as such, which appears as if he's trying to settle down with you. You will tend to relate more to songs and imagine him, you will find yourself doing things for him, and feel happy doing those things. It's easy to notice, when he says he is not in a hurry, and next day he's pressing your boobs, or else he says he needs to borrow some money because he's in desperate need of "help" and you find all your savings disappearing. Try noticing these "contradictory" things happening. His words and actions won't match. He will react emotionally the moment you react unexpectedly, your emotional strings will be pulled and a gentle kiss on your forehead by him will melt your heart. You may think, he could have done many things if he wanted to, but all he did was kiss my forehead. If you find yourself thinking like this, congratulations you are a part of his game now.

    Many of you might think, what's wrong in it, and many may think its okay. But listen carefully, it's far more than you can imagine. This man treats girls as "subjects". What that means is, he studies them, carefully, only so that he can manipulate them to serve his personal benefits. Let me elaborate through general observations:
    He will study you, your personality. He will remember your likes and dislikes, he will notice that tiny little yellow nail polish you applied last night on your left little finger. He will notice the kind of people you mix with. He will take note of your habits, your trigger points, your mood swings, your beliefs, your emotional patterns. In short he will study your psychological makeup and anything that's related with it. These type of men have mastered female psychology, and all you need to do in order to fall prey to these men is simply "think yourself a girl", or "think like a girl". That's all you need to do, and their work is done.

    There are few things he will display, which will be prominent. For instance, he will never stare at your boobs while talking to you. You might think he's such a gentleman, this is where these kind of Morons are mistaken as "gentlemen". They do not stare at your boobs because they know very well that by not staring it will create an impression on your mind. They know what "girls" like, and not staring at your boobs, is a part of their dirty little game. However, if you be alert and notice him at other times, when his guard will be down, in a irrelevant situation midst casual situations, you might catch him not just staring at your boobs, but scanning your entire body (or probably scanning your financial services that you can offer). Whatever it might be, that's just the beginning of the long journey.

    Dear girls,

    Tonight I want to discuss and share with you, about a certain category of men. I feel the need to do so because I have seen plenty suffer, and lose their identity in the hands of these men. The purpose of giving away this secret known only to few, is not to encourage manipulation or discrimination against any gender, but simply to raise awareness among the vulnerable.

    It's very unlikely and rare to meet this category of men in your life, the category of men who treat girls as "subjects". Yes, you read that right, you must have heard how some men treat women as "objects", but these cheap men are in plenty, very common and easy to spot one. I am not here to lecture you about those who treats girls as objects, you know very well how to deal with them. However, what most of you don't know is, how to deal with those who treat girls as "subjects". This discussion is exactly on that topic.

    One of the reasons why you might have not come across one so far, is because they are really difficult to be spotted or recognized, rare as well. Another reason is, their close resemblance with "gentleman" personality type. Yes, there's a very thin line differentiation between a gentleman and a men who treats girls as "subjects". Most of the qualities of gentlemen personality overlap, the difference only lies in the "intention". Let me be very clear, if a gentleman is opening the door for you, it's a sign of respect towards you, he has zero intentions for you. But if the other kind of man opens the door for you, it might appear as a gesture of respect, but that gesture is loaded with "intentions". Now, as far as my understanding goes, their intentions differ from man to man in that category. Some of these toxic men wants to be in your pants, while others wants to use your money for their personal benefits, or some other advantageous intentions that serves solely their personal benefits (without any regard for the other person).

    Predation

    Isolation is the ultimate poison
    A caged solitary animal will eventually stop eating
    Death of a spouse will institute illness in a survivor
    Such natural notions seem exaggerated and novel Social attention and interaction opposites exist
    Reverse machined threads on the silencers barrel
    Trigger squeezed the rounds to isolate and alienate
    Prey hunted by hungry carnivore killers, tuned perfect
    Yet miniscule in comparison to solemn loneliness

    Cage falls

    Prey!

    high on the highway,
    when the sun is low,
    starts twinkle,
    and make them glow.
    in the car,
    I am seated,
    wearing my hoodie,
    covering my hair!
    headphones in ear,
    I hear that voice,
    which says, "is that what's your choice?"
    deepening my thoughts
    I think for a while,
    "am I happy with what's inside?"
    and the voice in me speaks again,
    "sleep dear, it's just the devil searching again for its prey!"

    ~~ Dear Piranhas ~~

    I wasn't expecting such an agile visit from all of you; to greet your ¹sugarcoated senses with a pleasant welcome is such a ²beguiling treat to attract someone with. How a simple ³braggadocio has never impressed someone too!

    I just wanted to write this out because of the never-ending fatalities that happen all around the pristine rivers. Why? Why must your senses go too far to a point where a carnivorous instinct has fooled you too? Are you desperate enough to quench your active, yet ⁴inappeasable tastes?

    What made you and your fellow men that way? To victimize the innocents, fleeing to the ⁵aphotic zones of the ⁶maritime waters, is such a dreadful act that serves justice to the affected! Must the waters now be yours? Isn't freedom applicable to everyone?

    I write this to give thee a sign that these vast stretches of water are not your land, and not your straight-forward rights to claim and manipulate the living matter that dwells here as their own homes too.

    Please, refrain from your horrid acts and start approving for a more humane life united to the dwelling creatures of the diverse waters.

    Sincerely,
    A ⁷cenotaph's heed
    .
    .
    .
    -- SUMMARY --

    This discusses about people who've been accused and charged for murder among victims. A group of piranhas are metaphorized as the evil people themselves, while their prey as their victims.

    -- VOCABULARY --

    1 | sugarcoated - expressed in a more acceptable way than it really is
    2 | beguiling - marking a deceptive manner
    3 | braggadocio - boastful speech or writing
    4 | inappeasable - unable to be satisfied
    5 | aphotic - dark; marked by a point down the waters where light is too little
    6 | maritime - marine
    7 | cenotaph - a tomb or monument constructed to honor someone, whose actual remains are elsewhere
