    That feeling of emptiness.

    It’s right there in the chest, yet unsure how it came.
    Is it sadness?
    Melancholy?
    Boredom?
    I guess it may be a little of everything.

    If I ever let her go

    If I ever let her go,
    Tears will fall down
    The silent voice inside my head will get loud
    So shall my soul will be in pieces.

    If I ever let her go,
    Shall I be happy?
    Only with my broken soul
    And with unfulfilled promises.

    If I ever let her go,
    Will I be able to love again?
    With these scars on my heart,
    And with anxiety.

    If I ever let her go,
    Of the days, we spend together
    Laughing, cherishing, enjoying,
    Will I ever feel alone?

    If I ever let her go.....

    Things start having value
    Only when we give them that value!
    The true nature of anything...
    Is actually... Emptiness!

    Left Behind in a Cold Embrace

    To where do I roam
    In the snows of this hereafter
    Behind the rising smoke
    Of a train’s farewell?
    ~
    This new emptiness expands
    Quieting, the pulse of the wild
    With its veil
    And the mad wind’s roar
    ~
    Without the warmth of her stare
    Without the flight of her words
    Without the golden blaze
    Of her lantern’s path
    ~
    How can I go on
    Far away in this mist
    Where the emptiness wails
    For fresh trails of blood?

    Yeah, I know I have felt many times & still feel it every time.
    But , I seriously don't want to beg anyone

    Instincts

    My instincts will drive me home
    I may listen to many
    And may see so many
    But when the core of my heart
    Tells me it ain't right
    It sure ain't right!

    Just because someone can handle emotional damages properly doesn't mean they can be tormented over and over again!!!
    Because...
    Standing strong doesn't mean it doesn't hurt right????

    चलो कुछ दर्द बांटते हैं

    हमसफर से सफर मे होने के दरमियान ये सफर काटते है
    कुछ यू ही मिल जाए तो कदर नहीं होती है अक्सर
    जो बहुत मुश्किलों से हासिल हो उससे ही जहां मानते है

    लोगों को अमूमन ये गुमाँ सा बना रेहता है
    जो करीब है वो बस उनका बना रेहता है
    भूल जाते है अक्सर सच्चाई वो हालातों की
    बस फिर बीती जिंदगी इन्तेहा-ए-इम्तेहान बना रेहता है

    चलो कुछ दर्द बांटते है....

    Emptiness

    I feel empty and im not exactly sure why
    Maybe I got it the wrong way
    Perhaps I long for something I once had but took for granted
    Or maybe there's something out there for me and the right time has yet to come
    Whatever it is I know I won't be complete without it
    I'm lonely. I'm aching for something and it really sucks that I don't know what to do about it

    Love is the 'Betadine ointment' for wounds that can't be seen, just felt.

    My Emptiness

    How can a damaged soul love you
    When all the parts that make up my body feel numb
    From the pain and hurt experienced because I loved deep and wholeheartedly

    How can I make you feel better when I myself m hurt
    From the histories made by man in my heart
    Piercing all chambers that encompasses it with hatred and the seek for revenge

    How long will you wait for me to heal
    When I am still lost filled with emptiness that consumed my mind, body and soul
    I am still learning of ways and how to heal
    Still a stranger to this feeling my heart calls its home

    The longing of freedom breaking me more beyond my control
    Maybe, I probably might never heal from all the trauma's invincibly carved on me
    Just maybe, this is a destiny I have no idea how to escape from.

    ଶୂନ୍ୟସ୍ଥାନ

    ସକାଳରୁ ଆଞ୍ଜୁଳାଏ ଲୁହତୋଳି
    କରିଲିଣି ମୁଖ ପ୍ରକ୍ଷାଳନ
    ହେଲେ ହୃଦୟରେ ପୁରେନାହିଁ ବଡ଼ ଶୂନ୍ୟସ୍ଥାନ
    ଉତପ୍ତ ଓ ଶୁଷ୍କଭୂମି ପରେ ଯେମିତିକି
    ବାଷ୍ପିଭୂତ ଏଇସବୁ ବୁନ୍ଦାବୁନ୍ଦା ଝରଝର ଲୁହମାନ
    କୋହମାନେ କାନ୍ଥ ଛୁଇଁ ବଳପାଇ ଓଲଟି ଆସନ୍ତି
    ପୁଣିଥରେ ହୃଦୟର କବାଟ ଫିଟାଇ
    ତାଡ଼ି ନେବାପାଇଁ ଆଉ ଏକ ପାକଳିଆ କୋହ
    ହେଲେ ଫାଟୁନି ମାଟି ଏଠି କି ଛାତ ଏଠି
    ଖାଲି ଥରୁଛି ଯାହା ତୁମ ସ୍ମୃତିକୁ
    ସାଉଁଟି ରଖିଥିବା ରକ୍ତ ମାଂସ ଦେହ
    ଅବଶ ହେବାର ନାଁ ବି ଧରୁନି
    ଆଉପାଦେ ତୁମଆଡ଼େ
    ଘୁଞ୍ଚିଘୁଞ୍ଚି ଯାଉଛି ମୁଁ ଛାଡ଼ିଏଇ
    କାଚ଼ ସିନ୍ଦୁକ ଅସାର ଜୀବନ
    ଯେତେ ଘୁଞ୍ଚିଲେବି ଡାକିଲେବି କାଇଁ
    କେଉଁଠି ପାଉଛି ତୁମକୁ
    ତୁମେବି ତ ଘୁଞ୍ଚିଆସ ମାଳମାଳ ପାହାଡ଼ ଓ ନଦୀଡେଇଁ
    ପୋଖରୀର କଇଁ ପଦ୍ମ ଛୁଇଁ ମୋରି ଆଡ଼କୁ
    କାହିଁକି ଭରୁନି ଏ ଶୂନ୍ୟସ୍ଥାନ
    ଯୁଆଡ଼େ ଚ଼ାହିଁଲେ ଗଛ କାଠ ପଥର
    ସବୁ ଠିକ୍ ଠାକ୍
    ହେଲେ କେତଟା ଆଖିତଳେ ଦିକ୍ ଦିକ୍
    ଜଳୁଛି କଂଚ଼ା କଂଚ଼ା ବିନ୍ଦୁବିନ୍ଦୁ ସ୍ୱଚ୍ଛ ଲୁହମାନ
    ଯେତେବେଳେ ସେମାନେ କୁହନ୍ତି "ଚ଼ାଲିଗଲା"
    ଇଚ୍ଛାହୁଏ ଦୈାଡ଼ି ଯାଇ ସେମାନଙ୍କ ମୁଖସବୁ
    ବନ୍ଦକରିବାକୁ ହାତର ଅଙ୍ଗୁଳି ଦେଇ
    ଇଚ୍ଛାହୁଏ କହିବାକୁ ଅଛତୁମେ ମୋ ଦେହସାଥେ
    ଦେହହୋଇ ଛାଇସାଥେ ଛାଇ ହୋଇ
    କୋହ ସାଥେ କୋହ ହୋଇ ଲୁହ ସାଥେ
    ଲୁହ ହୋଇ ମୋ ହସଫୁଲ ପରେ
    ଟିକି ପ୍ରଜାପତି ଟିଏ ହୋଇ
    କାନ୍ଦିବାର ଭୂଲ୍ ମୁଁ କରୁଛି
    ମସ୍ତବଡ଼ ଭୂଲ୍ କାହିଁକି କେଜାଣି
    ତୁମେ ଦେଇଥିବା ହସଫୁଲ ସବୁକୁ
    ସାଉଁଟିବା ଛାଡ଼ି ଉପାଧାନପରୁ
    ଲୁହକୁ ଗୋଟେଇ ମୁହଁକୁ ଧୋଉଛି
    ଅଜ୍ଞାନ ଅବୋଧ ଚ଼ାଦରକୁ ଘୋଡ଼ିହୋଇ
    ବିଳାପର କବିତା ରଚ଼ୁଛି
    ସହିବନି ମୋ ଲୁହର କଷଣ ଜାଣିଛି ମୁଁ
    ଅନନ୍ତ ଅବ୍ୟକ୍ତ ଦୂରତାକୁ ଡେଇଁ
    ବିଷମ ପ୍ରସସ୍ତ ବେଳାଭୂମି ଛୁଇଁ

    ଭରିବାକୁ ମୋ ଅଥଳ ଶୂନ୍ୟସ୍ଥାନକୁ

    ମନେରଖିଲି ମୁଁ ଆଉ ଯେବେ
    ଏଇ ଶୂନ୍ୟସ୍ଥାନ ଢାଙ୍କୁଣିକୁ ଠେଲିବାକୁ
    ଚ଼ାହିଁବେ ଏ ଲୁହର ଉଷ୍ମତା

    ଅକ୍ଳେଶରେ ସେ ତତଲାପଣକୁ
    ଢାଙ୍କୁଣିର ଫାଙ୍କ ଦେଇ ଝରିଯିବ
    ଆଶିଷର ଝର ପ୍ରେମସୁଧା ନୀର

    Automaton

    Can a heart that's filled with sorrow,
    Learn once more to love anew.
    Can the warmth of love tomorrow,
    Fill a cold soul without you.

    The stars still shine,
    The moon still rises.
    They fill my eyes with awe, no more.
    In my future, will I wander lonely.
    No whispers on this silent shore.

    No arms to hold me in the darkness.
    No sounds except the ticking clock.
    No dreams to fill my sleeping hours.
    Deep in my chest this icy rock.

    I spend my days on autopilot.
    Wake, eat, work, sleep,
    Day by day the time goes by.
    No one sees the mask I'm wearing,
    No one hears my silent sigh.

    Save me from this numbing madness.
    Do I want to feel again?
    Feeling only brought me heartache,
    An empty soul and tears like rain.

    Sometimes inside my mind I wander,
    Like watching a movie in my head.
    Arms entwined round two young lovers,
    Cuddled on a large soft bed.

    Lips soft kiss and slow caresses,
    Raising slowly passions flame,
    Loving till the early hours,
    Until their afterglow remains.

    In the dark my eyes stare skyward.
    A single tear rolls down my face.
    The memories of a love once shared,
    For a moment the pain of loss replaced.

    Inside this once warm hearted woman,
    Compassion and empathy still live on.
    But look, see deep inside her soul now,
    Lives a lonely cold automaton.

    It is said that "An empty mind is a devil's workshop" ...but it should rather be "An empty mind is a sad dwelling"...

    Emptiness drives us to the most dreadful part of our life . It compels us to rethink the memories we always wanted to wipe out or the changes,we were never ready for . At times it's the helplessness it brings with itself and sometimes the repentance and the nostalgia from the days gone by...

    Forever for a Lil Far

    Was being besotted and treasuring you
    My biggest mistake?
    Was believing in you my epic disbelief,
    That made you sell out all the stakes.
    For all the respect offered,
    I've been rewarded in contempt.
    You started it all and stated your call
    No surprise you tried to prove that i was being a recall.
    Was Wherewithal the threshold you choose
    That i couldn't close.
    Now that I've been conned to all about us,
    The only witchcraft I'd wanna witness is,
    You steer clear of your yellow snow.

    The Moon too goes through phases of emptiness, to be full again and yet we enjoy and appreciate it....!!.Why can't we celebrate Sadness!? Appreciate the little grief to grow and glow...��

    SADNESS

    Dejection, despondency, despair
    Many adjectives to compare.

    Some unveil it with a smile
    Some with grief.

    Many celebrate with a glass of Chardonnay
    Some with a piece of Art.

    An integral fragment of life
    For the life to strive.

    Like the phases of moon
    Emptiness, half and full.
