Because there’s abnormal in normal…


The Death


Days, weeks and months passed by.

Their endless conversations came to a standby.

Those days of drowning into each others eyes,

Turned into stalking each other on social media, like spies.

Those goosebumps and butterflies, perhaps had died.

I wrote this for YOU.

I want you to know that I’ve written this for you. Only for you. So that you can read it. Everyone else who reads it doesn’t get it. They may think they get it, but they don’t. These words are meant for you. Truly, only for you. For you are special. You are beautiful. 

I want you to know that there will be no fears or tears after you read this. That you will emerge as a stronger person. That you will gain mental strength from these words. That these words will become meaningful only after you read them.

I want you to realize that there are happy memories as well as unhappy ones. That you need to forget the unhappy memories. That it is not easy but you can try. That you need to remember only the happy moments of your life. That reminiscing them will bring a smile on your face. That your smile is the most beautiful thing.

I want you to believe that the bad days will end soon. That the gloominess of your life will be over one day. That the darkness will fade away. That after darkness will appear a ray of light. That that light reflects hope and happiness. That that light is within you.

I want you to realize that people come and people go. But some people stand by your side, no matter what. That they are there for you even in the darkest phase of your life. That they are the ones who truly care for you. That you need to realize their worth. That you need to stop chasing wrong people. That nobody stays with us forever. Because nobody is immortal. But the only immortal thing in this world is YOU. Your Soul. That your soul is pure and beautiful. That it reflects the obscure –‘you’.

I want you to know that life is not easy. That it has innumerable obstacles and hurdles. That you need to go on despite all the barriers. That you can’t give up. That you have to fight for yourself. That you are strong enough to do that. That with your perseverance and confidence, you will win it one day. Trust me.

I want you to believe that everything around you is beautiful. That beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. That the sun sets each day. That that sunset is beautiful. That the sun will rise the next day. That that sunrise is beautiful. That rains are beautiful. The rivers are beautiful.

And so are you. Keep smiling always!

Sadness prevails

Some days you are sad for absolutely no reason.(No reason? Are you kidding me? You have every reason in the world to be sad.)

Your heart is heavy and you look for a dark room or perhaps, a washroom to cry your heart out so that nobody, absolutely nobody can see your endless tears and drenched cheeks. Your eyes are filled with tears and you hide them behind your ‘feigned’ smile. You feel broken and fallen apart. But at the same time, you do not want anybody, particularly your loved ones to know about your state. And if somebody sees you in that dark room, accidentally though, you turn your face away and wipe off your tears before they come to notice. Your inner self shouts out at God for your current state but there’s absolutely no answer. This shout-out relieves you, for a few moments though.

You want to be alone. You want melancholy. But can’t because people around you need you. They want your presence.

So, in the end, there’s no escape.
