Platonic Love

When you laugh it’s like rain making love to snow
Like a beloved and a lover made for one another
…………..
Your first glance took away my heart
Then an ache started in that part
…………..
Hold my hand as long as you are with me
Let it become a love story
………….
Let there be talk as long as there are words
Stay in front of me as long as there is world
…………..
If you look in my eyes there is no chance you will find someone else
you will fail if you try finding anyone else
……………
You know between you and I there is something
Don’t fool yourself… don’t test my patience

False Metrics

Researchers have revealed that people who occupy themselves with gaining superficial pleasures end up being more anxious, more emotionally unstable, and more depressed. Pleasure is the most superficial form of life satisfaction and therefore comes as easy as it goes. One feels that while you have that feeling you’re living otherwise you aren’t. And yet pleasure is what is marketed to us, twenty-four-seven, to wire our brain to work in a way that we crave for it every time. It’s what we look for every time on and always look for pleasurable activities. It’s what we use to numb ourselves which keeps us distracted for a little while. But pleasure is not the cause of happiness; rather, it is the effect or the by-product. We use sketchiest of the means to attain it. People use different forms of drugs to get the feeling: we call pleasure, they give us a quick high which makes them feel better in the short term but it leads to a life of anger, despair, insecurity, neuroticism, emotional repression. You can’t have a pain free life, it can’t be roses and unicorns all the time so always look for a balance that would provide contentment. Don’t use pleasure to act as a metric to measure your happiness, and think obsessively about it, rather count the blessings as a measurement which would be more rewarding.

10 tips on how to calm a troubled mind and live a joyous life!

10 tips on how to calm a troubled mind and live a joyous life!

1) Clear your mind:
Whenever you feel like negative thoughts are taking over your mind, could be because your life is cluttered or chaotic; always take time to calm your mind. This could be done by expressing yourself in different ways, like writing, talking to a friend or drawing would be a good outlet to let it out and is also very therapeutic.

2) Assurance:
Positive affirmations are the key for goodwill to follow. You are what you imagine yourself to be in your subconscious mind and that you can achieve all things you impress on it. Also, let your mind be consumed with positive ideas.

3) Purpose-driven-life:
It’s important to identify your interests, skills, knowledge, talents and passion to land opportunities that you are perfectly suited for. Having an aim in life keeps you motivated/going and keeps you energized as well. Moreover, it acts as a guard against depression.

4) Live a harmonious life:
Also, believe that you mind is full of God’s wisdom. You forgive everyone, don’t desire ill for anyone and show gratitude. Create harmony, peace, love and understanding with the people surrounding you. Value your relationships. Do not take people for granted. Demonstrate appreciation and love by giving small presents or thanking for even smallest favors to maintain strong relationships.

5) Proper sleep:
Always make sure that you take proper sleep to function optimally. On an average it’s vital to take 8 hours of sleep for overall good health and well-being. Before sleep get rid of all negative thoughts and wake up with positive thoughts that would help in making it a peaceful sleep.

6) Make happiness a habit:
Always see the glass half-full. Count your blessings in life, thank God for them. Appreciate good people and things around you. Take charge of your own life and let not people dictate it. If something bad happens just take it as a learning curve and experience. Draw your attention towards your hobbies that make you happy and let your mind be occupied with good thoughts.

7) Strive for a better future:
Each day is a time of renewal, revival and rebirth. Expect the best. Don’t live in the past. Having a feeling of remorse, thinking what went wrong or could be done in a better way. Don’t dwell on those wrong decisions. Always believe that now is the time to fix it and hope for the best outcome, don’t dare be skeptical. Try to have a positive outlook toward life.

8) Love unconditionally:
Often we love and serve others expecting something in return. If our expectations aren’t fulfilled we are disappointed and feelings like bitterness and resentment take over. If a favor is done, do it from the heart for the joy and thrill of making someone else happy and making bringing a smile to their faces, that would be much more liberating.

9) Break a bad habit:
You are free to choose a bad or a good habit. Habit is the function of your subconscious time. So the compulsion to do comes from there. So if you keep on repeating a positive thought it would act on it and will surely help in shaking those bad habits. Try not to harbor any negative feelings like anger, envy, bad temper, fear. It would be good in two ways, firstly, it will have a positive impact on your health (fresh looking and throw off positive vibes) and people will tend to treat you better.

10) Workout and eat well:
This could be done in any form. It could be as effortless as dancing or talking a walk or locking yourself in a gym adopting a hardcore workout regime coupled with very wise eating habits.

 

 

 

Downward Spiral

love hurts…

You emptied your eyes full of sorrow to fill mine
To see my heart throb every time

I don’t want to push you away
Because without you this wild one isn’t safe

To keep me in your territory is what I fight for every second of the night
Because you are the only one who can let some light in my life

I have trapped a beautiful moment in my eyes
But I when wake up I’ll see its demise

Let’s take a few steps back to return to being animals again
I just want to connect with the animal inside of you to go reckless again

How lucky are you to be with the one you like
For me it’s no longer a care for everyday life

love hurts.

Victimhood

You are the only one who can make those diamonds drop
Something you didn’t call for

Your beauty is unbearable
How do I control myself when the feelings are uncontrollable

Utopia is where we belong,
Where we shall sing all our favourite songs

You couldn’t be mine in this lifetime
So I made up my mind for afterlife

What kind of tension-filled cheeky love is this?
Makes me restless

Enjoyed couple of moments of happiness
Then found treasures full of sadness

Come witness an immature burial
Trapped between life and death

Neither dead nor alive just loss of an innocent life

It happened the first time and but I’ll make sure it doesn’t happen twice

Victimhood

Sob of a virgin goddess.

Sometimes in life, you are just not meant to get over some people and I don’t want to fight the urge to. I’m done going against the wind. I know it is one-sided immutable love but I’m totally okay with that. We met at a time when my faith in the goodness of this world had been destroyed completely. I wasn’t happy with plethora money. It was when I had resigned myself to the fact that the world was unrelieved darkness, that it was just about paper-chasing that I caught a glimmer of light when I saw you, I felt alive. I had stopped thinking about the terrible fate of my face. You perfumed my surroundings. Just like the tree had flowered suddenly. Will the glimmer grow if I’m lucky it will? When time will try to dilute the sweet memories of that day I hold on the memory that you will meet me again. Before I go to bed I just close my eyes and intoxicate myself with those thoughts, feel so intoxicated that I can hardly move like I had lost the power of speech. But I know as the days will pass by the soul of the memories will become cold but I will keep it in the greenhouse of my heart. And the only way of lengthening its life is to believe that it will not be destroyed and that it would be renewed shortly. That person’s life of butterflies, of eyes with dreams, of mind filled with fantasies wasn’t lost forever. For you there’s no stand-in. I will be prostitute for you and sit at a brothel where you’d come every day. I’ll be a bar girl if you testify you’d hit the bar every time. I’d be a stripper if you promise that you will come to the strip club every night after 9. All I want is the whole world to feel the vibe!

Did you just witness the queen that bowed?
A thousand thanks for the help you gave me to revive redeem and buy back myself.

Pub-love (poem)

Your solitary entrance put everyone on high alert
Like a song going on high octave

I watch you watching me
Tell me how many hearts have you broken. Tell me how many hearts have those eyes stolen

You swamped to the music, laughing softly at a witty stanza
Closing your eyes at a romantic line

You didn’t listen to the song as much as you received them with people serenading you
A man alone among us, made beautiful by tribute of a song

You swallow me by the way you stare, downright seditious

Girls attracted by your charm like bees drawn to honey
You were like scent to the ocean to them

Quality of experience was the goal probably sunlit and shadowy
