    -City-

    Cities captivate me
    The way they capture fragments of people
    That come and go
    They hold onto them
    Holograms of moments
    Anywhere you look, cities breathing people
    People don't engulf cities
    Rather cities engulf people
    Like galaxies of stars, matter and stardust
    Bodies of matter with so much potential
    Like headlights taking you back in time
    This teleporting in city streets
    Of looking at tall sky scrapers
    Reminding you of a moment truly lived
    Reminding you maybe this life isn't bad afterall

    If and when I die
    What if I just wanna perish
    Perish into nothingness
    Like I wasn't here at all
    Like the many beings
    That come to this earth
    Live and then perish
    Their lives don't mean anything
    What makes our lives mean something?
    What makes us different?
    Am I not just a being that is a visitor
    In this world?
    There are humans and then there are heroes
    Heroes we celebrate, their legacies we cherish
    humans and beings that just perish
    What if I choose to be the latter?
    I want to walk beside those souls
    Tell them they aren't alone
    That their lives meant something too
    But that we're all just visitors
    Heroes and humans alike
    There needs to be nothing grandiose
    About this, about our death
    Having to mean something
    Maybe some of us could not really live
    This visit that we got to earth
    Maybe for some of us, it was just torture
    Maybe all we could do was struggle
    And I want to stand beside them
    I want to be among them
    I don't want to know what makes us heroes
    After all, is it not just a figment of our imagination?
    Maybe I don't want to be remembered
    Maybe I don't want to scar the one's I leave behind
    And all I want to do is come and go
    Like a visitor, smooth
    And when it's time we just perish
    Like a flower when it's days are over
    Like a mayfly that falls after a day
    Alot of us mean something to someone
    Alot of us don't
    And when I go, I want to go in peace
    Leave the one's I leave behind, in peace
    Give them the strength to move forward
    Because at the end of the day
    We're all just travellers aren't we?

    -Make the clock reverse-

    Going back in time
    I see a younger me
    The happiest, high-spirited girl
    I see her looking at him
    Innocence in her eyes

    I wish I could tell her to turn back
    I wish I could hug her for what's about to come
    She looks happy though
    Still content with the one person who seems to be her world
    There's fear in her eyes, but she still leaps forward
    She risks it all for love

    I know where she would be now
    I watch her lonely self
    Walk down that same road
    Confused, hurt but still keeps walking
    I wish I could hug her now more than ever
    For the brave girl she was trying to be
    I wish I could tell her she's not alone

    Things haven't changed much though
    She would still choose love, I know
    Even with all the hurt and betrayal
    And things that are never really in our control
    She would still choose to walk down that road
    But it's time I told her that
    I cannot make the clock reverse
    And there's no bringing back what once was hers

    ~Survivors~
    I'm just barely staying afloat
    But atleast I'm floating
    And if I keep staying afloat, maybe one day I'll reach the shore
    Sure, there's going to be turbulent weather,
    Sure, the waves are gonna swing and knock me to it's bedrocks,
    keep me there till my lungs give out
    I know there will be hard days coming
    but I'm still gonna try and stay afloat
    even if it takes me down
    But if I think for once,
    That I can beat against the water, complaining and crying for help,
    Asking someone to help me come out of this vast expanse of angry ocean,
    I know I'm just going to sink
    Because the help I need is me
    Only I can save myself
    I have to figure this out on my own
    No one's going to be there looking for me, helping me, everyday
    This is something I have to learn
    To survive, even when the odds are against you
    and I know I will, though the path or days ahead
    will never be kind to me

    Tinted lights, silent night
    Blue naked body under blinds of sheets
    Palpably a perfect murder scene
    The room a silent witness
    To all that's been

    Everything in twos, the shadow creeps
    Time stands still
    When the clock strikes three
    Demons unleash
    The night is set free
    The room a silent witness
    To all it has seen

    Alive or just breathing?

    For a girl who hated the shade of yellow,
    She grew up to love a sunflower~

    Healing

    I kept sending songs to you
    To tell you the things my heart could never tell you

    I kept sending,
    Sending ..
    Sending ..

    Until I didn't anymore

    Because I knew you only saw them as songs
    But never beyond

    And now these songs remind me of you
    But my heart doesn't ache anymore
    It doesn't ache for you.

    Here's hoping mothers are celebrated and loved not just for a day, but always. For their love. For their sacrifice. For their flaws. For their individuality. And here's hoping we see them as humans, than romanticised epitomes of "ideal" motherhood. For they can err too.
    Let us love them for what they are and not what society has conditioned them to be. To all kinds of mothers (not just to humans but to animals/pets as well).
    We love you.

    Amma,
    I realise alot how I wasn't made for this world
    I've felt hopeless. Tired.
    But you are the reason I keep going
    You didn't just have two babies
    You carried mountains, braved dangerous weather
    You stood high and strong even in the eye of the storm
    But you had your soft palm
    Caressing your belly,
    Telling us everything will be alright
    You are the reason I keep going amma
    You are the life and light to my world
    Please don't be afraid to live
    You're not alone
    You will never be
    You will always have me
    And if there's a love so pure
    That I believe in
    It is you
    Never forget that
    I will LOVE YOU
    Always!
    No matter what.
