Twilight

d8b7a9e5bbf2a28b717343823285b9d8

Stars aligned perfectly in unison

Embroidering the dark blanket

The sun goes down, so does the disappearing crimson

The world breathes quietly free from the racket

Of birds or the cacophony of my thoughts.

I am a creature of the dark

I see beauty where everyone else fails to

For there can be no light without the dark

Lying in wait of the awakening of a chaotic world.

Warrior

There are things which are beyond our control. When life puts you to the test, and you have to face circumstances that you are not prepared for, that is when you discover how strong you truly are. You know one thing for sure and that is never to give up because giving up isn’t an option. At such trying times fate puts us through, you need to be your own superhero.

When you know your life is going to change

That it’s never going to be the same

And there is nothing you can do about it

Just stand helplessly and watch it transit.

When the storm tries to uproot your existence

A warrior is born amidst the turbulence

Only the strong and sturdy rise

Conquering darkness like the blazing sunrise

They make their own wings;

Stone-cold and immune to the uncertainty and swings

They stand tall and face with courage

Prepared for the worst, lest fate ever try to discourage.

What is love?

Each one of us has our own interpretation of love. The more I try to understand its nature, the more bewildered I am. Its seems like an endless journey, this quest to find the true meaning of love. The more you explore, the more entwined its essence gets.

rose

If love sets hearts on fire, doesn’t it extinguish over a span of time?
If love is forever, does it encompass the mortality of the soul?
If love is unconditional, why does it hurt when it is not reciprocated?
If love is fulfilling, what if the emptiness tries to creep in?
If love is perfectly imperfect, why do the imperfections threaten to shake the very fabric on which it was built?
If love is bliss,why at times does it seem blissful ignorance?
If love is forgiveness, don’t some mistakes make the heart go through a great ordeal?
All I am left with is the timeless question, “What is love?”

The Golden String

 

maxresdefault

For times when reality gets overbearing, music is my safe haven. To me music is like a story, where, as the tale unfolds you become one with the character, you experience their joys, dreams, fears and hopes. And when the story ends you reluctantly snap back to reality and the spell is broken. Lately, I’ve been drawn towards classical music concerts and here’s an ode to the way music inspires me.

Enamored by the whimsical sound of strings

Strung with emotions flowing like the fall of spring

Vibrating in accord with the cautiously beating heart

Burning like an inextinguishable fire lighting the dark

His fingers struck them with a delicate ease

The absence of lyrics nonetheless felt;

Every note filled our hollow souls with a temporary bliss

A treacherous escape bound to fail

Because it all ends when the music stops.

A Survivor’s Cry

dd8114b8439fbf5f76b69b2d925e1a8b

-This short poem is an insight in the mind of a victim of bullying. All of us, at some point of time have been a bully ourselves by not taking a stand against those who bully others and silently watching it from the sidelines. It is time to make a change and join forces in this fight against such torment.

I am fire, I am ice
In a world filled with hatred and malice
I am hurt, I am insecure
I barely recognize myself in the mirror anymore.

Once upon a time I was destroyed
Now I destroy everything in my path
The carefree life that I once enjoyed
Is haunted now, by invisible judging eyes and misdirected wrath.

Everyday is a plight, every step is a fight
Nothing I do ever seems right.
Even my smile feels contrived.
Despite everything, I survived.

Fashionable Ways to Flaunt those Floral Prints!

When I think of floral prints, I associate the type of print with the occasion. If you are wearing it for a casual outing, choosing something subtle and yet remarkable is preferable. You could try patterned neutral shade pants or shorts,  pair it with something bold and interesting or go for a classy minimal look by opting for a plain tee.

 

You can try the same with floral skirts too! Emphasize the attention to the skirt by choosing a plain top to go with it.

Floral jackets work to trendy look to a tee. It adds that edge to the entire look  to make it appear very playful and fun.

There are endless varieties of dresses that bring out the floral summer theme gorgeously. Here is a compilations of few of my personal favorites.

What excites me the most is the more challenging task of going an overall floral patterned attire! Mixing two pieces of different floral pieces to produce an outfit that is still in harmony with  every piece, now that’s something you can have fun experimenting on!

Hope you guys loved it! Do let me know your favorites in the comment section below!
