Miles apart we continue to be, 
I'm still wondering if this gap will ever close.
For you, you know, I am (was) always there,
If only the same from you I could still suppose.

I thought (chose to believe rather) the distance would only make our love grow stronger.
Never knew your pain would be so much that you would refuse to take it any longer.

I long to gaze upon your face, to share a smile, an embrace.
But gradually I'm coming to terms with the fact,
You now belong to some other place.

Its not the same, I can see that clearly.
But still those expectations are not completely lost.
Or let's just stay I still have some hope left,
And trust me that hope costs me alot.

"It's all over and it is perfectly fine",
I say it to everyone almost all the time.
But not everything is as perfect as it seems to be,
Because someone still has to be convinced of this fact,
And that someone is me.

A smile on my face, a twinkle in my eyes.
Don't confuse it for happiness, Oh boy! I tell you.
It's there because there is still some hope, 
That one day it'll be "us" again, 
And not just a solitary me or you!

My eyes are filed with thousands of emotions, 
I wonder how can still see through!
Is it really that hard to accept 
That you mean to me more than I ever meant to you?

Or maybe it's just a way of yours, 
To keep yourself away from what is true.
And that little secret buried in your heart,
Is that you still love me too!!

It just shows a side which isn't visible usually. But this is just random poetry, feeling less.

And the fact that your not 'saying anything' says more than you ever could is not something that I don't see.

No, I am not sharing my views on (not) being committed. Yes, this is one of my (vain) attempts to keep this blog alive. No, I have not made any effort of writing in the past few months even though I had all the time. Yes, that is certainly not a very good thing. So, this is a book review. Well, not really a review, just a few words here and there since I finally managed the onerous task of finishing reading this mostly boring book. Just a few things that will stay with me. Ok fine. Yes, this is a book review.

A brief background about how I came to read this book. My dear friend for almost six years now gifted me this this Valentine's Day (much to my surprise as I did not expect him to actually take into consideration my all-time love for Eat, Pray, Love) and hoped this would give me some insight on our 'future'. Marriage was always on the cards albeit things have been extremely rocky lately. This was supposedly my anchor to rough…

Happy New Year?

Not really. It's a new year, alright. Not all that happy though. Hoping a bad start leads to a better end.

Anyhow, it's good to be back after a year. I think this has become more of an annual ritual for me now which, to say the least, is extremely disappointing. And since even this post is rushed, I will only say the things I absolutely want to.

A dear friend gifted a copy of 'Memoirs of a Geisha' to me for my 26th birthday (yes, that happened :/) and needless to say, I am thankful to him for more than one reason. Firstly, it took away the most tedious task of choosing what to read, which is what takes (wastes?) most of my time. I ABSOLUTELY cannot make up my mind about what I want to read. End result? Piles of unread dusty books. Since that was taken care of, all I needed to do was be diligent enough to find time to read it. And I did! In less than a week! You see, that's the thing about a good book, you just cannot keep it down till you're do…


I'll be 25 in another two weeks, and for some unfathomable reason, I am pretty excited about this one. My birthdays are not really something I look forward to, and that's because of a lot of reasons- you keep building the hype for months and weeks and days and everything is over in just 24 hours, just like that, phoo; some calls never come, and you keep waiting till the end of the day, this thing constantly ticking at the back of you head; some unsaid expectations are not met, even though consciously you are not aware of these, but your heart shrinks when 'these things' don't happen.

That being said, this year has been quite a roller-coaster ride already, and there is not much to lose at this point in time. Hence the excitement. I've also made a special effort to clear the clutter, from my mind and physical space around me, just to make sure there is only good energy around my silver. And there are some little things that I have in mind to do for myself this b…
