Changing definitions: trust, loyalty and love

Love like the flowing river has changed its colours and definitions every generation. Gone are those days where loyalty spoke of true love! Infact the definition of loyalty itself has been chamging over a period of time. Relationships are tested on the backdrop of multi stage extra marital under currents. The meaning of trust has [...]

Love…a strength

"Love is a waste of time it only makes you weaker and vulnerable.." This is what those deprived of love in life say. They restrain themselves from letting their emotions flow building a shell around their hearts. They don't let themselves get drenched in the feelings and remain dry and emotionless. Love is eternal and [...]

The hurricane of destiny

I sketched your memories with sand grains of my emotions. I had thought, I had caged them in my heart forever. But then came the hurricane of destiny. The wind of time blew rough and cold and messed the sand grains of my emotions. The lightening of the sudden unexpected shock shook my heart. The [...]

Beauty and the beast

(This is a symbolic poem based on the fairy tale 'Beauty and the beast' . It shows how love can cure the negatives in a person caused by the situations and conditions in life. No man is good or bad..the situations make him that way) She knew the dark chambers of his heart, She knew [...]

Loosen happiness boundaries

'Life & happiness' has always been my favorite topic to think and talk all the time. Pursuit of happiness is a continuous process which leaves us with infinite revelations. I would like to share a recent thing that enlightened me when my life took one of the worst roller coaster rides. We always have set [...]

I miss…’US’

"I could never say 'I miss you!'. The very reason is 'I miss you' is too shallow! Missing someone is so complex! Missing is not just about the rememberence of the flashbacks of butterflies in stomach, exciting eyemeets, long deep dives in eyes, shy gazes and often those eyeshifts to the floor. It's more than [...]

A part of you is forever mine

There you walk in the hostile crowd, you are always very one with it. You feel aloof and alone sometimes, please don't say no, I have noticed it! The true you is hidden, behind the new fancy face you wear. But the fake people who surround you, about the 'real you', they never care. So [...]

The other side of tearless eyes

Once upon a time I was very proud of being an emotional person. I considered emotions to be the only sign of liveliness. On the other hand I always saw practicality as heartlessness. As I saw more life, I realized that emotions have invited numerous scars on my heart. When I cherished extreme pleasure I [...]

Eternal happiness – a mind trick

Eternal happiness is difficult to realize as happy moments don't last long. Perhaps, that is the reason why some of us feel that eternal happiness is a myth. But this holds true if we think of happiness on a shorter span of time. Nothing lasts long and how can happy moments be an exception to [...]

An angel in the dark

I walked down the dungeons dark, On the rough path of realities so stark, Voices yelled and howled at me, I ran for help and hurt my knee, I groped in the dark to find my way, But at every step, fear blocked my way, Soon I heard his footsteps slow, His enchanting voice deep [...]

Lost smiles

I wonder where I lost my lively serene smile, To search that smile I walked long miles, In the desert dead, burning in flames, There I stand amidst those hot sand dunes, I spot the trail of the foot prints you had left, And the place from where you disappeared, I trace the foot prints [...]

It’s not my birthday its my rebirth!!

It's my birthday today! I realize I am 27 now! I am neither happy that I am one year older nor I am happy for spending 27 long years of my life. I am happy because I have grown by more number of years just in a single year. I have seen more of life! [...]

Too many facets­čśĆ

Human being is so complex! So many faces and so many dimensions! When we get to know a person we hardly know a face or two of this incredible complex being. As we proceed in our life, we take a look from different perspectives and get to see different faces from new dimensions. That's where [...]

Replacement

Everyone seems to be unique, but even the uniqueness is no good at times when you are replaced by someone so easily.  This is the most painful period in life, that you know you have given in your life and blood for something or someone yet someone replaced you. You may be an epitome of [...]

The uncontrollable force within

I have heard many saying .."I wanted to do it but the situations suppressed me..people around me were not supportive..I did not get a conducive environment for my growth.." Nah..I don't agree with them. Strong emotions of love for someone or something intensified with dedication and commitment...nothing stops them from growing. Nothing stops them from [...]

A ride in life

I was very upset and disappointed. I was not able to sleep for a long time. I tried to close my eyes again. Now I was sitting in a car and I turned the key to start my car. Suddenly, the darkness vanished and I felt myself driving the car on a smooth road through [...]

Dependency..an attitude

The sun bathes the trees in its warmth, and the trees grow and bloom in the showers. All elements of nature are interdependent. Nature itself exists on interdependence. But when it comes to human beings may it be a physical emotional or financial dependency we feel insecure. However, dependency is an attitude and not a condition. [...]

When moving on is difficult..

Emotions are like a flowing river. When the time flows they get replaced. The emotions become memories frozen and get locked behind. The time flows and these memories are never lost. They never lose their place. These impressions created by time can never be washed away. But the ties flash in the form of tears [...]

Earn it!

We struggle with our emotions thinking we are not getting enough. We go on expecting after we put in efforts in relationships. As time passes we expect everything would get better.. But that never happens! Eventually we feel the other person does not reciprocate and we give up or begin to think that she doesn't [...]

My genuineness…they thought was a mask

I was taught to be genuine.. I was taught to be honest...I was taught not to wear a mask. As I grew up my eyes got baffled with the constant color changes of the masks around. I stepped ahead to feel and love the faces I saw and the images that were behind the beautiful [...]

That sensitive part of us!

The dynamics in human relationships is dependent on that hidden thing in our hearts. The person who is capable of maneuvering that sensitive part of us emerges powerful! Did you guess what that thing can be? That little sensitive thing is EGO! Every person in this world struggles to preserve his or her 'self'. Nobody [...]

The rain poured

The rain poured, Carrying away the bits of my heart;, Purifying my soul, Making me whole; The rain poured, With droplets trickling down my body, Carrying my pains, Enlivening my veins; The rain poured, With sharp, curt stabs of rain drops; Taking away my emotions, And my needy dependence; The rain poured, On the insecure [...]

Why love doesn’t exist

Love is a sometimes volatile while other times it is eternal. Love is a mix of needs, physical and emotional...woven into different bonds.. love is friendship.. love is a habit..love is sharing..and love is caring.. When all of these delicate feelings exist, love is there. But slowly and steadily these delicate feelings walk away as [...]

In search of me

Like every other person in this world, even I felt the strong urge that I must have someone to understand me. Just like this feeling like everyone else I felt that people around me just don't understand me. Once I decided to chase this feeling. I decided to chase who my heart feels should understand [...]

Need for human empowerment

Women's day was celebrated with a great zeal and enthusiasm. Everywhere every person talked about women empowerment. Men conveyed their best wishes to women on that day. But I have a few questions to raise. I feel we all need to think about it in a different way. Women made themselves feel and look special [...]

Struggle

When a seedling sprouts, it has to emerge from the heavy soil growing upward. It has to use all its strength to let it survive in the intense sun and sometimes in paucity water. This is struggle, survival and success. No one in this world can ever escape struggle. The person who doesn't struggle becomes [...]

Do it alone!

"I am alone today and not just a day but many days at times. I wished I had someone with me to do all the things I love the most. Unfortunately, I have quit the desire to do all that I love only because I have no company." Wait.. I am not talking about me, [...]

Let the breeze blow

Let the breeze blow Let the time flow, Let the tears freeze, With that gentle breeze; Let the time flow, Let the breeze blow, Let the words dissolve, And the love evolve; Let the feeling flow, Let the words flow, Let the lips smile, Loving for a while; Let the hearts feel, Giving love some [...]

Words vs silence

Distance created by words is more painful than what silence can create. It pricks, it hurts it wets the eyes with tears. Silence can atleast leave a hope but words kill the flame of hope that silence can leave in a hopeful heart. There is always a chance that silence can end with words. Words [...]

Silence- a reflection

Silence gives the world peace, Silence makes you feel guilty, Silence makes you feel romantic, Silence gives you tranquility; Silence says what words don't, For silence has its own voice, Emotions love silence than words, For, deep inside a meaning lies, Silence opens the golden gateway, Giving life to the unheard feeling, Taking it to [...]

Another fairy tale

She left her hair down the window, For the prince to send her a letter, But her feet froze, her hands froze, A gulf of fog played the game, Which parted both of them, The letter vanished , His words dissolved, In that unexpected silence, The princess still waits in the tower, For the dissolved [...]

One stress at a time!

Life has become so fast! There are so many fronts that need to be handled all at a time. Your girlfriend is angry with you, the boss has piled up work for you, your dear pet has to be hospitalized and the list is never-ending. The clock runs faster than we can imagine. The more [...]

That one moment

That one moment in life, Changes everything right? Like that bright spot, On the canvas of life, Painted by the time, Leaving a memory, That freezes you there, Lighting up your life, On the swing of time. Copyright 2017 Chitkala Mulye                

The chase

Chasing the winds of ambitions I try flying high, leaping higher to touch the bright blue sky, Leaving behind the gold, to glitter like gold, to reach great heights, growing multifold, Everyday I want some more, finding a new me without changing the inner-most core, One day I realize the desired dream of my mind, [...]

He broke up because..

She was sitting at the coffee shop waiting for him. She had covered her face with her hands and was weeping in frustration. She was thinking why he had said, "I am meeting you for the last time." Her mind was crowded with numerous thoughts. She was still wondering why her relationship went through thick [...]

100 shades of grey..

The art of forgiving is indeed a difficult thing to learn! But once inculcated, makes life easier and happier. It helps heal painful moments and sleepless nights waking us up to see a brighter sunshine. Though we blame the world for being unfair, we can never ignore that nothing lasts for long.  Change,  being the law [...]

Lost love for brown

Traditional Indian people talk about "feeling proud of Indian culture....cherishing Indian culture...". I feel like asking them a question. "Are you proud of Indian skin colors?" I'm pretty sure that most of them won't be. They will prefer fairer brides for their sons and will definitely underestimate the beauty of darker skin shades. Oh! I [...]

Diversification of happiness

When the world is grappling with the pursuit happiness, I have my own 'funda' - diversification of happiness. We invest our interests and emotions in a few people, situations, activities and often end up saying "Nothing is going right!". We have dreams and ambitions for which we crave desperately. When these dreams are shattered into pieces [...]

Marriage is not an event!

I wonder why people exclaim, "Finally the couple in love got married! Happy endings!"I have always thought of love and marriage more as a journey that begins when a couple commits to be life partners.  It continues throughout the life, till the moment when one of the them takes the last breath or due to an [...]

Move on

The warmth of the bed holds me there But I leave those mushy dreams there Twinkling nights intoxicating fire flies Embracing sunshine losing moony ties, Getting drenched in the rain so wet, Bidding rain 'good bye' I don't wait; Seasons of life change their colors fast, I enjoy 'today' forgetting the 'passed' past; Butterfly flying [...]

Away from you…

Finding a way away from you Turning away from love so true Filling emptiness with your absence, Not sensing feelings in your presence; Painting the pictures with no colors, Relishing tastelessness & no flavors; Loving the "lull" in loveless life of a lover, Sucking the nectar of a nonexistent flower; Living imagination of life "without [...]

Change

The power of change liberates the crowded mind, Nourishes and purifies the thoughts of mankind; The leaves change their colors , they fall and grow; It is resisted by a frowned raised reluctant eyebrow; The change rejuvenates and the life it conditions, Realising the real importance of the gone done; It's the law of Mother [...]

Love metamorphosis

You had never ever touched my body But every emotion more than a buddy The desires in me had doused their charm, Now lit sparkled in the dark and sung a song; My life was still with a lull and badly bent, Waves of ecstasy danced with contentment; The feelings soon changed their colours, Became [...]

The season of life

The sky had spread cloudy blue light, I closed my eyes but it was still in sight; The memories had soon begun to fade, But not the impressions it had made; The turmoil was calming down slowly, The heart was warming up peacefully..; The bitterness was losing its taste, The sweetness- the present had blessed; [...]
