You don't know where you are. It's too dark all around you. You are alone. And suddenly it becomes too cold sending you chills down your spine. That is when you realize you are not alone. You turn around to see that dark entity coming for you from afar. You run, you fall, you crawl as fast as you can. But the entity keeps getting closer and closer and closer. And you seem to not move at all. Now you see people around you, not noticinng you struggling. Not even aware of the fact that you are being chased by that deep dark entity. You don't understand why you keep running yet not move a bit from your place. And when the dark creep almost touched you, you scream!
This could be one of your worst nightmares. This could be your current circumstances where you are stuck and everyone else is moving forward. That dark entity could be someone. Someone toxic. Someone whose presence threatens you. Or it could even be your shadow self, coming after you, trying to tell you something, wanting to make you listen to it, acknowledge it. Or like I said, it could just be one of your worst nightmares. A nightmare that wakes you up abruptly gasping for breath. But I am leaving it up to you. Interpret in your own sweet dark ways.
"Hey they're putting on a special sale on the new store!" said person 1. "Wow! We really got to check it out" said person 2. "You know what happened yesterday on that TV show?" Added person 3. And they all started giggling but not her. She wasn't just giggling but laughing like laughing really hard. And suddenly none of the conversations could be heard. It turned all dark and gloomy in the blink of an eye. She was still laughing and smiling and nodding at the others. But nothing they said was heard. There was a sudden shortness of breath in the middle of her laughter. But no one noticed. A voice kept saying "STOP IT! JUST STOP LAUGHING!" Followed by another voice saying "So..? Is everything alright now? I never knew...?" With a grin on it's tone. Followed by another one, "Just give up already! No one's declaring you as the Master of Pretence!". And then those voices came in all at once, not just whispering but screaming shrilly! But nothing came out. Her heart kept thumping so hard, so hard that it was almost about to burst out of her ribs. Tears almost came gushing out of her head flushing away her eyeballs. But there was nothing seen on her eyes, not even a drop. "Excuse me, I need to use the washroom! Be right back!" Said she, trembling inside, with a naive smile on the outside. And those 15 mins of all the dry coughs, suffocation, suffering, nausea, losing her grip, those stormy flood that finally came out of her eyes till they dried out all salty and burnt. They all were perfectly kept intact, were perfectly concealed again by that naive smile, when she looked herself in the mirror, as always!
I know I love you. You know you love me. I know you know I love you and you know I know you love me. But guess what? I won't say it to you and neither would you to me. And I won't let you think of anything else than me. I'll just keep on bombarding you with all the double meaning hints and all those weird mixed signals and would just grab all your attention towards me. I would just turn you and myself into confused psychopaths. If at all you tend to get a bit closer to me sensing my love towards you, I would just lose my mind like crazy. I would just yell at your face saying, "Don't you take Advantage of me!" But then would turn towards my side smirking right in front of you and would look at how you're responding...! ... Aargh! What's the point? I mean, Doesn't this whole thing SUCK! Why can't you just be real, just be yourself. Why would you have to keep on exaggerating things. What's with all this so called "Flirting"? I agree I'm a bit of a Dumbo when it comes to catching such mixed signals in the beginning. But when I do get it, I can't pretend or lie to you anymore and I bet there are many people out there who also wants everything to be simple and raw and real. Why can't we just say how we feel towards each other? Don't just run your life on mere assumptions, because assumptions lead to unwanted expectations and expectations will definitely lead to disappoinment and hurt. Just say something, anything. Just ask it out, even when you're about to receive an unexpected answer. Haven't we all been there at least once? Haven't we all been rejected, ignored or friend zoned at some point in our lives? And haven't we moved on like a pro? I know it is much easier said than done. I know it hurts and kills you inside and I know we all have spent those days where being or just pretending to be strong inside out has been the only option left. But haven't we fought over it? Why split your entire life into "Before them" and "After them" when all of us have a LIFE of our own? Enough of this icky sticky ooey gooey lovey dovey nonsense! Be Authentic. Be Real. Be You. And if you're still into all these nonsense and call it love, then just play around with those silly apps which are just made for you idiots. And stop playing around with people's feelings. ... P.S. This write-up is not gender specific. Be you a girl, a boy, LGBT or whatever. If any of you guys find this pretty offensive, guess what? I'm not even sorry! Well hey, somebody has to speak up someday somehow. So...Ross Geller's Friendly Finger to y'all dumbos! PEACE!
Hey you! Yeah you. I know you're probably bored and tired of your day and you're just here scrolling down your feed. But before you scroll down further, let me put forth a few questions. Are you that one person whom all the people in your life confide to when they're in a rut? Are you the one who makes yourself available for everyone in your life almost everytime and anytime, no matter how busy you may be, just because you don't want anyone to feel to be left out all alone in the cold? Do you think that your sole purpose of existence is to make others around you happy? Can't you stand even a thought of someone hating you for no reason? Does it hurt to even thinking of saying 'No' to something or someone that you end up saying something else like a 'Yes' or a 'May be' ? Do you often take the blame for others just because you "Understand" better? Are you the one who keeps on giving and giving and giving even if nothing's being reciprocated just because you know that 'Someone' has to be flexible to keep the relationship going? Now. Since the illustration on the back has a girl screaming out loud, don't think that these questions are just for all the ladies. Because no matter what gender you belong to, if your answer is, without any second thoughts, a 'YES' for all these questions, you know what you're called? You're called the 'GOOD SOUL'. Mhmmm! I understand. Because you've always wanted everything to be in that way. You know, no big drama, no hurt, no vengeance, just Happiness in Abundance! Can I please ask you to do something for me, well...for You? Can you please stop being one, you know... the 'GOOD SOUL' for a little while? No, am not trying to manipulate you guys to go evil or anything. What I'm trying to say is, for heaven's sake, just stop being so good and start thinking on how you're being treated, just for a while. Do you get that feeling somewhere deep down that you're being taken for granted? Well, you may be or may be not. Wanna find out? Then please do this "Intense Analysis". Please be selfish. Get real busy with yourself. Don't be available to every person out there every single time. Tell'em you're busy. Atleast just pretend to be busy even if you're not. Make and take all the time this universe has to offer, for yourself. If someone approaches towards you to listen to you, don't just blurt out every single thing that's been bothering you. Instead, Think. Because you know, there's a difference between 'Curiosity' and 'Care'. Raise your guards up above the world so high. If you don't feel like explaining anything to anyone, then don't. Wanna stay low key. Then stay. Not able to throw that fake smile anymore? Then you really don't have to. Just shutdown yourself from everyone and everything. Not just at the so called 'Romance' but just shut down from every fucking relationship you're dealing with. Now, I'm not asking you to be like this forever, because there's no such thing. And I bet you won't be able to continue this way even for a few weeks. But yeah a few weeks of being this way would do wonders. In other words, just Become a Priority in your Life. Start treating people exactly like how they treat you. And if some are upset of that, then honey trust me! The problem is not with you but with them. There there! Just stay calm. You've done your part. Just accept it and let others make the effort, this time, this one time, for you. Because those who really love you, who really care for you, would definitely make an effort to get back to you. And if some don't, well...Good Job! On showing them the doorway! You really don't deserve such toxicity. Now you get the word 'Intense' in this analysis, don't you? Because after this, I'm one hundred percent sure. You'll know who really are. You'll know what you really want and where you really stand. And most of all, you'll know who are really yours and whom you really belong to. So yeah, that's it. Thanks for taking your precious time to have come this far! Now, go start experimenting with your life, with yourself! Happy Experimenting! :)
When I was a kid, I used to avoid reading, watching or listening to some news and facts which were about the harsh brutality that happens in its various forms all over the world. I avoided them because I would put myself in the victim's place and that scared me so deep that it would haunt me for weeks and sometimes even months, that whenever I would think about it ever again I would cry really bad. During my school days, some of my friends would come running towards me just to tell me about something too cruel something too brutal that they've read and watched and I used to muffle my ears and shout "aaawwh" and run away so that I can't hear them out. But as the days passed by, I somehow mustered up my courage to read, watch and listen to any of the cruel incidents that happened all around the world, turning my anguish into anger. But after all these years, I was again afraid, like I used to be, when I was a kid, when I saw Posts, news and pictures about Syria. I purposely tried to avoid knowing anything about it. And it took me a week to come out of it to really get to know about this brutal civil war in Syria. I stood speechless and I cried and I cried and I cried. Not just those poor souls, we all are helpless here, having lost humanity. Yes, it is long gone. The poetry which I wrote some nine years back by the title 'Universal', came to my mind. I don't know what difference this could make. I really don't. But my prayers are always there for every single soul out there which is striving hard, which is struggling for every drop of its life.
