In The End, At Last.

Vast-galaxy-desktop-wallpaper-1280x7203


Perceptions and Perspectives

Universe and You

For Eternity

Infinity and Beyond

Lies or No Lies

Commit and Remit

Through and Through

End of an Era

Beginning of a New Millennium

Always Save the Best for Last

As in the End, It Does Matter



Make it work
Make it worth
Mend your ways
Mind your days
Going through hell
Living in heaven

Let’s walk a mile
Wanna see you smile
So don’t be late
Gonna fight this fate

The end is near
But I have no fear

Death can wait
Coz I have you as my date

So give me this chance
To live my life
One last chance
To love my life
Give me this time
To relive my life
In just One Day
One Last Day
One Last Day

Thaw or Not To Thaw

One two ten

I am lost again

Why won’t thou understand

‘Tis not ’bout being sad

‘Tis thy coldness

Not mine frozen heart

‘Tis thy sheer ignorance

Making everything fall apart

Thou walking on thin ice

Showeth thou shall rise

Thaw Thy Ego

Then come see

Let it all go

If it were meant to be

The Blog Tour Award

I was nominated by Piyush Singh for the Blog Tour Award. Thank you so much for this. This award is something different than the others, basically to help bloggers connect with readers. And for fellow bloggers to understand you better. I think this is a great way!

Rules:

1. Pass the tour on up to four other bloggers.
2. Give them the rules and a specific Monday to post.
3. Answer four questions about your creative process which lets other bloggers and visitors know what inspires you to do what you do.
Q1. WHAT AM I WORKING ON AT THE MOMENT ?
Q2. HOW DOES MY WORK DIFFER FROM OTHERS IN MY GENRE ?
Q3. WHY DO I WRITE OR CREATE WHAT I DO ?
Q4. HOW DOES MY WRITING/CREATIVE PROCESS WORK ?
4. Compose a one-time post on a specific Monday (date given from your nominator).

My Answers:

Q1. WHAT AM I WORKING ON AT THE MOMENT ?
Currently I’m working on 2 short stories. The End…? and The Danger Sign. Their next parts would be posted soon.
Also trying to revert to all the award nominations one by one, which I have accumulated in the past two weeks or so. Thanks to my lovely blogger friends for the honor. 🙂

Q2. HOW DOES MY WORK DIFFER FROM OTHERS IN MY GENRE ?
Every individual is different, yet similar. The difference keeps us intrigued and the similarity helps building connections!

Q3. WHY DO I WRITE OR CREATE WHAT I DO ?
This is how it was meant to be. 🙂

Q4. HOW DOES MY WRITING/CREATIVE PROCESS WORK ?
It’s all about inspiration. Sometimes I find it within, sometimes in nature or life, sometimes  from my fellow bloggers and the blogging courses or challenges I take. It’s all here, there, everywhere!


Now time to pass on the virtual tour to other blogs. I suppose this is also a time when I should display the Rebel side of me. So going against the rules, I would like to make this an open invitation! I nominate all my fellow bloggers for this award. I think this is a great idea – to have a virtual blog tour. If you have some time, do try answering these questions and carry forward the Award Nomination Tradition. 😉

Write a one-time post next Monday, or whenever you can!

Spread Happiness. ❤

50 Word Stories

My Lucky Charm

“You gotta hold my hand always?” Angrily, Suzy pushed Kyle away.
Realizing a car was approaching from behind, she pulled him back, hugged him and said, “Oh my God! I’m so sorry Kyle.” 

“That’s why I’ve to hold your hand; to say how lucky I’m to have you.” Said Kyle.

(Prompt: Luck)

The Beach

People think night-life on the beach is so glamorous. The night parties, crackling sound of bonfire, couples dancing and singing around it: what’s not to like!

But if they saw me sitting here on this rock, all by myself, then I’d like to know, how glamorous does this look?

(Prompt: Crackle)

———————————————————————————————————————————————–


Again for The 50-Word Story Challenge.
I know, even I don’t like the 2nd one.
But this is what I wrote.
Thanks for reading.


The End…? (A short story)

Diamonds.
Shiny
Sparkling
Diamonds.
They are said to be
a girl’s best friend.
But for some reason
these diamonds:
lying here all around,
on her bed,
all the wedding jewelry
and what not;
they remind of the things
She doesn’t and couldn’t have.
A normal childhood,
a happy family,
a friend who would never leave her side
or the love of her life.
These diamonds
were just telling her
how her life
is always going to be
empty.
How it would be filled only with
materialistic things
and nothing else…..

To be continued…

50 Word Stories

The Room

The doors were locked. The lights shut. Even the clock stopped clicking. Still, here I am, lying in my bed, staring into the never ending darkness of this room; whose every belonging shouts out her name and takes the life out of my already dead soul. Every time. All. The. Time.

(Prompt: Not enough sleep)

——————————————————————————————————————————-

Danger Sign

“Wanna go to my place?” he asked abruptly. “Sure.” I blurted. And in no time, we were rushing to his apartment, two blocks away from college.

A peculiar smelling room, everything out of place.

And then I saw it. Staring back at me.

Most dreaded danger sign.

The Ash Tray.

(Prompt: Ash Tray)

——————————————————————————————————————————-

Anything For You

“Honey! You know I don’t like this salad! Why did you order it?”

“Babe, it’s good for you. The doc said so. Remember?”

“Yeah…. fine. Just ’cause you’re saying. But on one condition.”

“What?”

“Take these ugly green beans away pleeease. They taste funny.”

“Haha. Done.”

“So sweet!”

He smiled.

(Prompt: Green Beans)

The Right Thing

❤ Follow your heart they said. ❤

Go do the right thing they said.

❤ But heart’s in the left I said. ❤

How can it be right I said.

Does two wrongs make a right

Or two rights end up being wrong?

Clear the confusion come along

Dont turn this into some fight

❤ Heart is always right ❤

Beautiful day comes after a dark night

And darkness turns into light

So just sit tight

❤ Everything’s gonna be all right! ❤

The Ugly “Wall”

When someone asks you to think about walls, what comes into your mind? Before I reveal what hit me when I wondered about walls, lemme tell you I desperately searched my camera album and even browsed through old pictures thinking I might accidentally stumble upon any “wall” picture to share with you guys. But nope, that certainly didn’t happen! Then I realized I never click pictures only of walls (unless there are people standing in front of them!). Although, yes, I might have clicked a few pictures of old walls of archaeological or heritage sites found here in India; I do like a good piece of work, like those beautifully engraved and carefully carved intricate patterns found on the stone walls of The Taj Mahal, Red Fort, Humayun’s Tomb, etc.
PS: I’m not good at describing those things so pardon me!

Then again what else comes to mind? Well, I kind of took it metaphorically you can say. Walls. Fences. Borders. Man-made barriers. A way of marking a territory.

But what do they really mean? In the real world? Continents, countries, states, cities….everything is divided. Long story short, I don’t like such “walls”. And yes, all borders are ugly. They are just messy.

border

The India-Pakistan border appears as an orange line in a photo taken by the crew on International Space Station.

Ok, so this is like, even the ALIENS can see the “apparent” divide!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sure it looks nice from space, but it is after all, just another border.

fencing constructed along the indo - pakistan border - fao chris

The floodlit border fencing built through the Indian government since 2003 is so bright it can be seen from space

Yeah, so the floodlights are probably good for surveillance and all…. that’s it, I wont say much.

I sometimes wish someone would go back in time and undo all this. And instead of War, just spread Love.
