Tiny tales

When two people want to be close, no distance is far enough... When two people want to separate, no closeness is near enough...

Stay away...

Stay away,
Unless you are sure you want an independent girl,
Who doesn’t need your decisions,
Only your suggestions, thoughts and opinions.

Stay away,
Unless you are looking for an equal, a best friend and a partner,
Not someone to be dominated upon or to execute your plans.

Stay away,
Unless you are mature enough to handle honest viewpoints,
Sometimes sweet, sometimes biting, no sugarcoats.

Stay away,
Unless you are ambitious and can appreciate ambitions of others too,
Unless you want to change the world in some way, even better if I could help you do so.

Stay away,
Unless you appreciate trust, loyalty and honesty,
Unless you can give your 100% on these and expect the same in return.

Stay away,
Unless you want sleepless nights of passionate conversations on everything from life to death,
And sometimes, just sleepless nights of passion.

Stay away,
Unless you want to be showered with extreme love, possessiveness and obsession,
Bordering on jealousy,
And can return the favour.

Stay away,
Unless you want to be dragged to extreme locations of unseen beauty, wild explorations,
Discovery of nature and rediscovery of the self.

If you are looking for just a homemaker, caretaker, a mother to your children,
Stay away.

Unless you understand you are looking at a person with dreams, ambitions, hopes, likes and dislikes of her own,
Stay away.

Stay away,
Unless you want to know what a seemingly unflustered person is really like when in love.

If you think these are the ravings of a romantic poet,
Which could be worked out later on,
Stay away.

Stay away,
Unless you can love as singularly, passionately, tenaciously and with dedication.

Unless you are here to stay,

Stay away.

Miracles

Do miracles really exist?

Have heard so much about them,
Read about them in stories,
Watched in movies,
Seen in a few people's life as well...
But are they real,
Or they plain illusions of making the present seem out of league,
Only to return to normal or worse very soon,
But on a different level, miracles might exist,
Just because there were great men,
Men of courage and valour,
Who chose to not give up in the face of adversity,
But to face it and turn it favourable,
Am I one such?
Are you?

Whose fault is it?

Is it my fault?
That my horoscope keeps shifting its patterns,
Handled by different people, in different ways,
It is a walking, talkng human you just denied,
For something so shifty in its ways,
What about the promise you made,
You are breaking it for something so ungrounded,
It isn't fair,
I was once denied my happiness for exactly the opposite of what u believe in right now,
Whose fault is it?
Maybe Krishna's...
But He has given up on me too...
Probably I never mattered to Him,
But He was all I cared for,
I thought He always cared,
Guided me towards what is right,
But that wasn't so...
Why was I even born, why am I still alive!

The stone

I can feel the sorrow, 
It is no more just an emotion,
It is an integral part of me,
Occupying major part of my insides,
Like a stone,
Making my chest heavy,
Obstructing my primary functions,
Not allowing my blood to flow, the air to circulate,
Is it just years of pent up unhappiness?
Is it a symbol of hopelessness?
Or is it my heart that just turned to stone?

Love - Give and take

All that the world is ever truly after is Love. People might disagree and say it is money or fame or greatness. But all these are just the means, the means that are believed to attract true love and appreciation in our lives. A great achiever needs at least a man to tell him he is great, a person with money would realize soon that without a purpose, all of his money is meaningless.

To experience true love, one should be a giver... A giver of love, because love is something that you can truly, warmly experience only when you give it away. Give it away and it will let you glow, bask in its warmth, bathe in its glory. 

"Love is something that you give it away, It just comes back to you,
It is just like a magic penny, hold it tight, you won't have any, It just comes back to you!"

Last evening, I suddenly remembered a friend from college on seeing something on social media. It had been long since we had spoken and I immediately texted him. Coincidentally, he had remembered me the same morning on seeing the same post. I felt a moment of pure, open love and true connection. With some people, there is just no feeling of 'Let him/her call me first'. Instead it is, 'Even if you try running away from me, I will find you!' 

What brings about this difference? 

Probably it is just that in one case you want to be cared for and in the other case you actually care. As soon as there is a 'want', there is an expectation that someone/something should happen to you. Clearly, anything apart from your actions are out of your control and hence there is no guarantee that this 'want' would be fulfilled. This results in grief. However, in the second case, where you want to give away the care, it is easy. Your actions are under your control and you can do exactly what you set out to. This is way much easier and achievable.

Is it then wrong to have any expectation of love at all? Well, there is nothing wrong or right in love and war. All that I am saying is that having an expectation is definitely risky and would sooner or later result in pain and sorrow. As it is said,

'Sometimes, just sometimes, when people say forever, they mean it,
Sometimes, just sometimes, when people make promises, they keep it..'

You may decide for yourself which one you want to opt for. But let me remind you, Lord Krishna asked us to abstain from expectations in the Bhagavad Gita and He was definitely an intelligent man... :)

Competence is a turn on...

When there are talks boring you insane..
The voice of reason that raises a valid argument at the right instant,
The voice that says not a word more than warranted,
The voice of trust, you know when you hear,
A promise, It will be done as said,
The word kept, 
These are the people who earn respect,

Never over promised and under delivered,
Well thought before having spoken,
Thoroughly professional,
I think, Is there a person below that exterior,
Of cool detachment?!!

The fingers working ever so efficiently,
Instant responses and replies on time,
They respect others and earn every dime,
With honest effort,

The sense of trust that they inspire,
Rising like a tall spire,
You know they will do as they say,
Keep your backup plans at bay,
This should have been the norm,
Yet generally it is a boring swarm,
Of empty promises and too many words,
More said than done, the modern day con,
That is why competence is a turn on...
