“Do you let it go?” They asked me.
“Let what go?” I replied.
“Do you let the love you never thought existed go, just because they are going to leave you in the next few days and they really don’t have a choice? Do you let the happiness escape you now, just because it won’t exist anymore in a few weeks? Do you let the pleasure of joy get ruined, just because it won’t be there after a few days?” They questioned me.
“You don’t let the love go just because it won’t be there in the future, you don’t even know if the future exist.
You don’t let go of someone who provides you with such immense amount of happiness just because it won’t be there in a few weeks.
You don’t let the joy escape you just because it won’t be there after a few days.
I paused and said:
You know why my love? It’s because it is there for a short amount of time and even if it’s there for a short amount of time, it is there and you don’t let go of something so special and unique go for a future which is uncertain.
You keep it close to you till you can, you make them happier than they have ever been till you can and you make sure they are never ever sad because of you.
That’s how you know you can’t let this go, after all you need to take all of this at one day at a time.” I replied.
It might surprise you, but I guess now, I moved on from the stage of being ‘okay’ or ‘fine’.
It might surprise you, but now I no longer look for you in every corner of the room, when my heart knows you are there.
It might surprise you but now, I’m truly happy and nothing you can do can change that.
Don’t let anyone affect your happiness.
Don’t let anyone affect your inner peace.
Don’t let anyone affect your capability of being better.
Start living, quit delaying and breathe. ~MS
Monsoon is my favorite season not just for rain but when I’m sad, I try to stop my tears but In monsoon I’m not alone so many tears of my gloomy heart become damp in the shower of rain.
Surround yourself with positive and equally driven people who take out the best from you.
After a certain age your capacity to tolerate bull shit reduces, do not give your time to anything useless.
Leave that shit and move on with happiness in your life.
Don’t use the words feel or felt.
So how are you feeling today?
Just kidding, don’t answer that. Unless you answer it without the words “feel” or “felt” or other synonyms in the sentence.
I’ll explain this with an example.
Incorrect sentence: He felt like he was going to pass out.
Better sentence: The floor seemed to sway under his feet.
See the difference?
The first sentence tells the reader what the character is feeling and the second sentence shows what the character is feeling, without mentioning it explicitly.
It’s like the famous Russian playwright Anton Chekov said,
Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.
Using this practice just helps the reader visualize the scenario much better and makes them feel a connection to the character.

Do something for you,
Show yourself the truth.
Who you really are,
Who you really want to be.
Play the guitar
Made by your own strengths
And Open the garbage can,
For your mistakes.
But make sure
To discover the reason
Behind that what you did wrong,
To play someday a beautiful song,
With your hands,
Which really stands
For exactly you.
I want more , give me more ….” I pleeded life
“How much is ‘more’? ” Life questioned back to raising an eyebrow
My mom is not a hero
She doesn’t encourage dieting
Neither does she makes it any easier
By talking about it
Making me want to give up , give in .
But she gives me all the healthy food I want
More or less of a few things.
she thinks she does everything
Everything possible she can do
Possibly Do according to her .
Proud and happy with what she’s doing
Like a child she’s ignorant of the world
The REAL world ,but she thinks she does
Does know what it actually is
And maybe she does
Having a view to see
See the world as not as it is
But as how it could be
Sometimes it scary
Scary to think of how much I love her
Because I could do nothing without her
Of course I shout about not finding my stuff
Complain about being the duff
Yell about not getting the food I like
But after all that, I know that I’m loved
With all of my flaws
Without any clause
By no one else
No one but her….
I live between what is and what was.
I exist in both, I belong to neither.
There is no today, no tomorrow.
My ‘now’ is where you are.
My now is your fingers,
tracing mine, lacing.
My now is your head, resting on my shoulder slowly falling asleep to that movie you wanted to watch so bad.
My now is tears rolling down your cheek and with each one that touches the ground,
I love you more.
you’re so beautiful.
God, I love you.
My now is your arms wrapped around me,
holding me tight as my world fell apart, as though the only thing holding my pieces together was you.
My now is you,
And with you, I belong.
