Thoughts Before a Swipe…

Loving you is about loving me. Loving you is about being me. I am me only when I am with you. You know me best as I know you. Yet, there is a strange mystery lingering about. We share the same jokes that the world raises an eyebrow to. We secretly kiss through our eyes. Yet, looking into your eyes feels like staring into emptiness.christmas-568951_1280

Is it you or is it me? Has love found itself on a different route. We belong together. Yet, inhibitions have found a way into this surreal bond. How different does it feel! Do you feel it too?

I have wondered how life would be alone again. But is it worth making that move? What if it is true that you live in me as much as I in you? Would we be able to survive the calamities of brokenness? Would you?

Someday, this mind will silence into a sound sleep, free from questions, doubts and you. But will our love prevail? I hope to love you even after forever. Do our hopes and dreams match? Would you want to see me again or would you just swipe left?

An Ode for the Broken Ones

A cry, a plea, a distress call
My heart is broken
I pushed myself in a pit
I belonged and now I’m alone

Love faded like the clouds above
Darkness overshadowed the light of day
I was replaced without a word
All I could do is watch it slip away

The emotions, the tears, the rage
All now mean nothing
The kisses, the caresses, the promises
Have long ceased to exist

Yet a frail ligament of hope hangs on
A new tomorrow will bring love again
That place of belonging will be mine again
That sound of happiness will be mine again

Made for You?

Is he/she made for you? Do you ever ask yourself that question? Do you question his/her existence in your life? Are you sure of the person you chose to be your partner?

It’s not called doubting but finding the certainty in the relationship. You need to know whether that person is made for you. If and when you know, you will find it easier to dissolve arguments with him/her and make up after a fight without any room for ego.

Life is not easy without a partner, but it is easier with someone who is made for you rather than someone forced upon you like an arrangement. You need to know if he/ she makes you happy. If your presence is a boon in his/her life.

Don’t be left as a trophy on a shelf that is flaunted only when noticed by someone else. You need to be treated with value, and not as a valuable, if you know what I mean. You don’t want to regret for the rest of your life choosing the wrong person. Don’t settle for less if you know you are worth being with a better person.

If you already have taken the plunge, it’s never too late to bounce back and pull yourself up from the cliff. Make your move “now” or “forever hold your peace”.

Love Will Find You!

Love is not defined by happy times. It is defined through how it gets ahead of difficult times. It is figured through the many different emotions that make it happen. It is what makes the struggle worth. Have you ever felt love?

Heartaches can be painful, literally and emotionally. However, if you may have not noticed, relationships feed on brokenness. If you are broken inside, you become vulnerable. Love feeds on a vulnerable heart. It does sound like a preying monster but it does not have any negativity. Everybody needs love and they need it the most when they are broken inside. That explains artists writing love songs with a broken heart that become #1 tracks.

Love can be spent selflessly and yet bring happiness to your heart. What is a relationship that does not have problems? That is so perfect that it becomes mundane to just be together? That is a show-off but in reality without any emotion left? Make your relationship a meaningful one.

I keep telling people they will find someone who would love them more than themselves. But, honestly, if you love yourself, love will find you. And when it does, you better make sure it’s a keeper. It’s always that you find love, but you won’t be without either if you know how to love and accept yourself the way you are.

It was a difficult time accepting myself, my limitations and my worth. I still managed to do so. I do go back to that dark place at times, but never give up. I come back out into the illumination that love holds at the end of the tunnel.

Coming back to the beginning; if you and partner get through difficult times together and still accept each other with all those flaws you dare not display in public, you are almost there. Sometimes, just saying things out lot enlightens you about your own feelings. Figure what’s in your heart and show your partner what you lack in expressing ever so often. If you cannot speak to your partner, talk to someone who listens, then make things right in your life. You will find love or at least figure it out with your partner.
