Lighthouses don't go running all over islands looking for boats to save. They just stand there. Shining.
Sometimes it is kinder Rather than to provide absolutionTo deprive a wrongdoer of suchNot in spite, not in rage,But rather, as a gift;That by refraining to cleanse and wash away their ills That they instead must retain themLook inside And use it as an opportunity to reflectDevelop and grow,And maybe, just maybe, Even start to heal themselves,Through your act of "non-forgiveness"...©raindropsoncacti
Page, Pen & Sky
Back to my sky as a page, And a page as my sky.For what seems as many days as there are starsBoth escaped my mind's eye.Why did I turn my head down?I've answers none but words many.Why did I stop ink leaking, and sky-seeking?Too much of none, and too little of any.Seasons of torrents have since passed,Ink caught none, nib rendered dry.Supply plenty, yet page and mind empty.Time to rouse once again:My page... my pen...Above all, reunite myself with the sky.©raindropsoncacti
We resist change, yet are surrounded by it...Every star in the sky is showing us the very nature of change; what each star has become, not by chance but rather only through every moment it had to endure, outlive, outlast, even the parts it has to allow to fall away from it, for their light to even reach us.We resist change, yet are surrounded by it...©raindropsoncacti
Whoever would have thought so much closeness could be borne from an abundance of space?Who knew..?©raindropsoncacti
The most fulfilling love is that which we do not fear falling away,That we treasure, but refrain from treating it like it is ours to keep.Formed by never believing someone belongs to us,And always cherishing a moment for what it is, just that, a moment...©raindropsoncacti
Watch me bluff for as long as I canThat I don't feel a thing.But... Are you watching closely?For just like magic... there'll be a quick flip...Slight of hand and heart...A beat will skip.Then out of thin air, just like that,Into love I'll majestically slip.©raindropsoncacti

They say "lightning bolts never strike the same place twice".This is pure myth. They can strike one place upward of twice,And very often do!They say "people don't deserve second chances",But this is also a myth.For they're not the same person, and do deserve that second chance,And quite often, you aren't either, and similarly deserve a second chance, too...©raindropsoncacti
Difference & Sameness
We can exist in different places,Even be living in different times,And yet still enjoy same sunsets...©raindropsoncacti
"and since that day I began adopting a pillow other than the one I use for my head and every night I would sleep clinging on to it and cuddling it in my arms, with my heart humming its favourite song, 'i miss you'......."©_elamin

Life asked death, "why do people love me and hate you??"Death replied, "Because you are a beautiful lie and I'm a painful truth."
You were my ocean. The depth I was willing to go.©shamein555
Are we to be blissful arrogance?Yearning for the things out of reach Holding onto life, that burns so intensely Like the stars in their purified gloryDestined to fade away R.S©fragmentedpoet
Don't look for shine because no light burns until it has a source of energyDon't drain yourself into these peopleBe with people who pour peace into your soul and light you up.#stars #shining #trust#mirakee @mirakee©rajvis
Word of the day : BurnTag and share with #burncNote: My dad is not well, hence please excuse me for a couple of days. My team is busy with exams itself. We will see you in a few days. Thankyou.
I believed in us.You're the stars to my moon,Without you I'd never had bloomedMy mind still envisages meeting youOh my heart still speaks of you.As Robert Frost tells us"Nothing gold can stay"That's what you're, pure gold.But still I can't forget you, I can't let you go.I... don't feel free...I used to hope our story would never end. The way I've lost you,Right now that's what I'm feelingand sometimes it gets hard even to breathe, even to open my eyes, but I could only wish dying was that easy. For the first time in a long time, I started loving myself because of you, but now I hate myself as much as I miss you.But maybe tomorrow,I'll feel better in the morning.Cause if I don't, I have no idea what will I do. #writersnetwork @writersnetwork@mirakee #pod

When I look out of my window, i feel That I'm watching a movie of my life.Wild and fresh countryside, welcomed by the early spring;Cherry flowers in full bloom;Children running around in evening as the sun sets; And the starry night that illuminates the dark sky;And me hem around my loved ones for Midnight story with a dimly lighted Kerosene lamp laid that bless the shanty yet warm home.Sheltered in love alone.......©stonex
