I think our minds hold on to the good parts, and we fool ourselves into thinking we’re still somehow latched on to each other.
Visualize the smoke, and when it clears, look at the sooty ashes that remain.
You don’t deserve ashes.

Hasrat Jaipuri, ek aisa naam jiske liye zindagi ek suhaana safar thi, jo badan pe sitare lapete hue, jhoome re jhoome re karta madhur chandni mein kahin kho gaya. Jiske geeton ko sunkar baharein phool barsaati thin, aur bhanwre gunjan karne lag jate the. Jisne kabhi is rang badalti duniya ki tasveer banai, to kabhi dil ke jharokhe se hamien jhaankna sikhaya. Rekhta unki yaum-e-wafaat par unko khiraj-e-aqeedat (tribute) pesh karta hai... #DeathAnniversary
قِفا نَبكِ مِن ذِكرى حَبيبٍ وَمَنزِلِ
بِسِقطِ اللِوى بَينَ الدَخولِ فَحَومَلِ
فَتوضِحَ فَالمِقراةِ لَم يَعفُ رَسمُه
لِما نَسَجَتها مِن جَنوبٍ وَشَمأَلِ
Stop, oh my friends, let us pause to weep over the remembrance of my beloved.
Here was her abode on the edge of the sandy desert between Dakhool and Howmal.
The traces of her encampment are not wholly obliterated even now;
For when the South wind blows the sand over them the North wind sweeps it away.
- Prince-Poet Imru' al-Qais, of the tribe of Kindah. 6th Century AD.
I was a song
waiting for a right moment
and you a tune
waiting for a perfect song
we happened to meet
without any intention
unnoticing things coming our way
I didn't know it was you
and you didn't feel it was me
but time changed things between us
I saw you
and I realized
you are everything I ever wished for
you existed because I exist.
It was like a dream
to both of us
a dream from which
we never wanted to wake up
We were afraid of the evil in this world
an evil which would steal me from you
or you from me
We hid for years
thinking the evil would disappear
and got up one fine day
assuming it vanished
but it didn't
it's been waiting
to turn our world upside down
all this while we were being watched
it gave us time to celebrate
waiting for the right time
to strike us down.
I still believe
ours is a fairy tale
and life played the villain
we were just caught up as it's prey
it wasn't our fault
not even a bit
we only loved after all
we didn't know evil life has different plans
it's okay to part ways
our relationship might end
but our love story would be
ever lasting one...
If wishing for a different life causes you to miss out on your current life, you will end up with no life. #TotalrepostTuesday

à l'heure où on choisit
Avec quel dictateur on va s'associer
On ne compte plus les têtes coupées
Ni même les crimes de guerre
Les génocides et les terres brûlées
Arabie Saoudite ou bien Iran
On partage les ressources
Avec le plus offrants
Laissant les droits de l'Homme de côté.
Se bastasse seguire un faro/per uscire dall’oscurità/sarebbe tutto più semplice/ma c’è una sottile linea grigia da superare/che annebbia la vista/congela i cuori nel loro egoismo./Non possiamo/essere migliori:/dammi la mano/lancia il cuore oltre la folla/oltre il limite.
Seen It First
I saw me disappear first
If you’re noticing it now
A person who finds
there life less has
already gone missing
So anyone who misses
them is taking second
place in a life race that’s
about to run out
That person first watched
themselves disappear, so
you’re not the first to realize it
Stop acting like you’re apart
of the act so you can be the
center of attention, acting
like you’re a witness to something
that’s been long time coming
I pray for things you can’t
What you actually want
To leave traces under a sky
Carried away by the darkness Where nothing fly
Freedom falling apart
Stuck inside a place part
Of our childhood
Where you disappeared in the wood
Under the pretext of reaching the waves
to pull us out of this illusionary rave
Of our demons after twilight.
I come to realize thy truth is not what I cometh to imagine.
There is an energy field in thy flow. We just haven't figured it out but when we do...our whole life changes.
It passes us by precisely...within us so clear yet I want to be free. Coming in thy synch and being in direct proportion with thyself. What tis thy feeling we feel as humans?
An open book penetrates us...it cradles us.
Thy episode filters as thy evil thrives and very soon thy heaven plays a role.
What tis thy vision we endure?...Nightshades take place and we reminisce thy most lonely nights.
I sit here and write...thy most profound of lifes heartaches.
My love trapped and I cannot save him. It's only a few minutes and thy lights turn off.
We're both in prison you and i...punished for our strength and our independence.
Remembereth every insult and every tear. Thy best parts of me are well hidden. Please never forget who you are. As i will never forget who I am towards you.
Man to believe to reason...aloneth I come to see... Tis like fire season...what shall I take when the worst cometh? If I was brave I shall take nothing he says.
So I write...let my prayers fill me with joy and allow thy nothingness be obliterated from my life.
Our beauty is thy power and thy strength we cannot alloweth them to change us or lessen us.
I will never grant them thy satisfaction. Thy memoirs buried under my skin.
Loneliness is thy human condition and no one will ever fill thy space. And as time goes by...thy ships will sink...a little less...a little less...so I write
we were holding hands,
when you dropped me back,
with teary eyes, & heavy hearts
we said ‘love you’ to each other,
do you realise that,
we never said the ‘goodbyes’
it wasn’t ‘maybe we will meet again’,
it was more like, we knew it wasn’t the end,
we knew it ‘Was not end,
it wasn’t the goodbye. —.

"There is a world that lives inside us
And this reality is so tiring
So darling remove these masks for a while
and tell me about all the weird things you love
And the things you are afraid to say
Let's share our inner worlds
And dwell there
Let's go away from every bit reality for a while
To heal our souls,
Let's create our own happiness "
