I HEARD the most empowering quote the other day and although I’m yet to discover who said it, I want to share it with you: “An entire body of water the size of the Pacific Ocean can’t sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship. Similarly, all the negativity in the world can’t bring you down unless you allow it to get inside your … Continue reading How not to let negativity get to you
Hey everyone, hope you are doing good. What are you up to? Currently I have been reading so much and it is such a bliss. Recently, I picked up The Iliad by Homer again and took my time finishing it. I’m often kept up at night brooding on my troubles, wishing I could find some solace that would help me sleep. But now I know that … Continue reading Weekly Updates ~1
Hey guys, got another year older, and no it doesn’t sound fun anymore…nope. Due to lock down still going on in full force I didn’t leave house, but my friends called and they threw a virtual party for me. They are really the angels..sometimes disguised as devils. But no worries about that. I got a Kindle for my birthday, such a beautiful gift for a … Continue reading Another year older
God only gives us what we can handle, never more than that. The pain is similarly, one of them. At moments it may seem like too much to bear, but we can endure it, and so much more. Don’t give up just yet love. Everything ends, your pain will too. I took a small break from writing need to clear my head. Now I am … Continue reading Everything ends, have hope.
I can’t promise you moon and stars, but what I can promise is- I will always hold you, even when you can’t hold on to yourself. Till the end and eternity, I will hold you. Always. ~ Pia Majumdar Continue reading A Promise

For those who tried to read her face, how could you miss her hurt eyes, and the pain they hold? In my previous post, I wrote about how it is time, to change your perspective and outlook, on how we see things. Now adding more to this point, in the process of this positive change don’t overlook those who are in pain, those who need … Continue reading Eyes lie too
Huddled in a corner with a pen the paper blots up tears and ink and offers no hope of surcease to seeds of panic poised to grow. If only a little rain would fall. // my eyes adjusted to the dark last night of the light that fades in, flickering in the bathroom where I have spent my worst times I … Continue reading Bad Decisions
Sparkling eyes and tender flesh are shielded From the world in a tight hug. A photograph captures my father’s love. Gentle waves come home to shore, sloshing against the sand, A constant in this changing land. The sunset paints the azure sky, And its fiery orb disappears into cool gray water. A paradise in a different world, Away from troubles and danger, During innocent days … Continue reading I’d rather be some other place, a poem close to my heart
I looked at my mobile. Eagerly waiting for an intimation, if not a call, a message. Her fragrance, smile and the innocent eyes still haunted my days. It isn’t always easy to forego a person to whom you have committed your life. Especially a friend of years, who knows more about you than you yourself do. In those years of knowledge, I had never seen … Continue reading The girl who never was
I look behind me, and the soft blur steadies slowly, squinted my eyes a few more times and I now see clearly. It’s a broken bridge, there’s a hollow gap, a deep emptiness that separates us. We used to share intimate little spaces, strange but familiar darkness, and the perfect amount of comfortable silence. I used to fill your cracks with these tiny flowers that … Continue reading We don’t talk anymore, but I do miss you.
Me: This is a great morning. I better make the best of my day. Paranoia: You’re probably going to get hit by a truck while crossing the road today. Me: I have a test tomorrow. I better prepare well for it. Paranoia: You won’t be able to give a test after getting hit by a truck. Me: Wow, this breakfast looks delicious! Paranoia: How long … Continue reading HOW ARE YOU TODAY?
I was buried in a pleasant cemetery, Beyond the walls of the city, Near the banks of the Mississippi, When my body was stolen from the Ground. I died as I lived, languid and cold, My corpse interred beneath stone too old, My heart placid, as hard as gold, When my body was stolen from the Ground. At my funeral, you were first to attend, … Continue reading The Necromancer
I kept running. As fast as my legs could take. Breathing heavily, panting, as the shadows swept past by. Something felt wrong, amiss. Something was following me, matching my pace, feet to feet. It felt like a nightmare. A moment back, I was at the dinner table, and a second later I am running for my life. Thundering around in the alley. Was it a … Continue reading An encounter with the unknown
touch me just enough to awaken a tingling sensation brush your soft fingers yet long polished nails along the canvas of my body a shade of sapphire blue – gems on all fingers yet you bear no rings – paint me an image that is invisible yet imprinted through frail motions paint me an image that the blind can see, the mute can reiterate and … Continue reading Damn the feeling
If I must, It’s best if I drown at sea. Under shimmering light, Breathing in gulps of saltwater. Slipping away from my life The ocean would hardly notice if I spent the eternity there. I would puncture the surface To take my last breath of air. I’m still waiting, Happy faces, old memories, familiar feelings. I smile at myself at how far I’ve reached. – … Continue reading How far I’ve reached
She lays on one side, and he lays on the other. she is a beautiful flower against the brutalized landscape, he, thistle and thorn on a path rightfully left untrodden. … Continue reading The rift within us
I keep seeing spirits in front of my eyes white wisps of smoke floating by why are these ghosts taking shelter in my mind? They do not belong here am I just turning into a ghost myself? No one sees me, no one knows am I invisible? Yes. Better luck next time finding you. I am beginning to think about the probability of my misguided … Continue reading Invisible, but sees everything

You made me laugh like … Continue reading The time we danced together
