It’s real, not skywriting

The moment i met your gaze.
I felt like a full bloom flower…
The way you looked into my eyes.
A smile buds on my lips.
Your lips reciprocated the smile.
And kissed me real tight.
I still remember the first bite.
With your palms cupping my face.
The warmth of your palms spreads right under my cheeks.
I loved that warmth.
The warmth of your skin against mine.
My heart blooms in your presence.
All i could feel is that tremendous gush of blood into my heart…
It’s like you are watering my soul.
Laying close to you.
With just nothing…
Between my skin and yours.
I could feel your breath upon my skin.
And your lips brushing on my skin…
Nothing is heaven as compared to being in your arms.
Love is not just skywriting.
When i am with you…

Men- another being burdened

Men – another soul in pain..and pressure
We all see men as the strongest ones, or someone more significant, someone who is bound to protect women or the sole breadwinner of the house, the leader, and many more.
What if they dont want to be all these?
Are we not forcing on them all these?

No matter what, or which age, they are weighed upon with all the responsibilities. They are not given a choice, isn’t it?

If women assert to be encumbered with other gender-specific responsibilities or being a mother, getting married etc… then we need not do the same to the men too.
Stop popularizing that being manly is being a smoker or someone who drinks…
Stop popularizing that being manly is getting a woman pregnant…
Stop popularizing that being a man is like standing up for his woman.. a woman can also stand up for herself.. (let her be independent)
Stop popularizing that being rejected by a girl or someone is a big deal or even questioning their manhood… it’s all a choice.

Normalize the fact that men are human beings…
Normalize the fact that they can also cry and also seek help…
Normalize the fact that they also like being pampered and cared for…
Normalize that men need not man up all the time…

As co-existent humans, we women need to help men and, yes of course men also need to help women too…
Let’s lead a life of happiness not like a pressure cooker.
Change your mindset, before changing others.
Co-existing doesn’t mean ending up in cat fights, things can be amicable too.
Everyone has a role to play in life.

Yes, i loved many..but not like i loved you

You know what makes you so special for me..
You are the gem , i was always looking for ever since my journey began..
I loved many,
But none gave me that love,
I craved for..
Everyone i loved, assumed they deserve me..
But all i desereved was you..
The one with whom i feel alive..
The one who could make my eyes teary with a smile on my lips…
The one who can hold me, like never gonna be apart..
The one with whom, i can sleep and dream..
The one with whom i can tell stories and read my poems..
The ones whoes arms are like my home..
Yes, i did love many before you..
But then, only you led me to the real me hidden inside me for so long..
You are magic to me..
You are light to my darkness..
And my whole world….
You are my home, where i wanna fall asleep ,
Safe and sound.
