DETAIL

We are muses
to the
photographer
who kept
waiting
for one right
shot.

He forgot, objects
remain
as they are,
only
perspectives change.

ALIVE

Her red lip stick,
and little black dress,
her vehemence
and hair in a mess.

Her pointy heels,
intimidating smile,
her enchanting scent
and stares awhile.

Her back upright,
pride in her walk,
free from despair,
prancing, as they gawk.

Her unleashed soul
and exuberant voice,
reflecting exemption
in which she rejoice.

For now she denied
to be weighed down
and made the choice
of keeping her crown.

WHAT REMAINS

Warm afternoon
brunch
clinking mimosas
laughs
a sudden breeze
chilly;
her enchanting 
scent
fills
the empty chair.

THORNS

Yearns
pleads
screams
still an animal,
thrusting himself in,
basking in
manliness.

One little slit
oozing
red neck,
cloudy eyes
cloudy dreams
luminous morning.

GUILTY PLEASURES

Ashamed of
getting
consumed in the
moment?

Or drunk
on her
pheromones?

CHANGES

When you’re happy,
screaming
children bring
a smile.

When you’re sad,
their warm
hugs become
cages.

PEELS

Silent suffering
and unheard weeps,
hapless soul
walking through creeks.

Roaring voices
and heartless barbs,
hapless soul
wearing agonizing garbs.

Countless bruises
and strangled hopes,
hapless soul
making empty strokes.

Unquestioned fidelity
and false surmise,
hapless soul
caught in lies.

WHAT COLOR IS YOUR TEARDROP?

We all have been experiencing life in our little cocoons; some bigger, some smaller. And we all embrace how and what life gives us. Well, we try! But most of the time life’s melons aren’t really the shape or size or color you wanted them to be. And most of the time you don’t know the end to this rhetoric sentence, “When life gives you lemons…..” But why is it important to complete it, I ask. Why do we always have to know that one single approach to leading our lives? Why can’t we experience it all in whatever way we please? And why does something as irrelevant as this sentence have to define your choices?

We all have our own perceptions, our own apprehensions towards worldly things. Everyone doesn’t choose one single approach or address a dilemma in a particular way.

Some choose family over their own happiness, some don’t. That doesn’t mean they don’t have integrity.
Some want to rescue animals, some don’t. That doesn’t mean they lack empathy.
Some cry watching rom-coms, some don’t. That doesn’t make them any weaker.
Some derive happiness from working hard, some don’t. That doesn’t make them pompous.
Some find solace in reading, some don’t. That doesn’t make them anti-social.
Some believe in God, some don’t. That doesn’t mean they don’t have faith.

And there are a million other examples that can be cited. It’s pretty much a tomayto-tomahto situation.We don’t always know what the other person has been through. We can’t always read their faces. And we don’t always have to try.

So, how about changing our outlook?
Let’s not judge, let’s not make assumptions and let’s not reach conclusions. Let’s just lie back for a while and go with the flow. Let us feel that sunshine seeping through the leaves, let us enjoy the wind whistling through our ears, let us allow the waves to tickle our feet and let the rain liven up every pore of this skin.

Because only when we are closer to ourselves, we understand, how equally important is it for others. We might have our one favorite color but that doesn’t complete a rainbow. It needs all the colors to be the beautiful spectacle it is. The best gift you can give someone is to let them be and maybe letting them choose their favorite color will add more substance and vitality to their lives.

We all deserve an equal chance to happiness; so let’s give the ones deprived of it, a chance to be.
