Still Alive

When you feel that your soul is experiencing slow death and you’re gasping out to breathe in …remember that you’re still alive.

When your thoughts drift away slowly and your memories are haunted by the zombies of the past, but your mind tries to cover them up..remember that you’re still alive.

When your body can’t resist temptations and the demons conquering you are backed off…remember that you’re still alive.

When your heart feels weak to handle any shock and is still fighting to beat…remember that you’re still alive.

Remember that you’re still alive because He is alive in you!

The Unknown

They look at how peaceful she is and envy her quietness but deep down a raging anger is calmed by the power of her silence..

They fall in love with her smile and think how positive she is but her tears are hidden within her soul tearing her happiness apart…

They hear her laughter all the time thinking how crazy she is but the loud laugh is to cover over her arguing mind voices..

They see how excited she is with an overwhelming energy but this she uses to scare her fear away..

They know of her lovable heart that has known to accept everyone and everything but her heart is full of stitches still at the edge of breaking apart…

What they don’t know is now known to her..

and the moment she knew the unknown..she knew herself!

Part of me

If I can engrave every single word you message me, I’m sure I can build a stunning sculpture no one can break!

If I can turn your voice messages into musical notes, I can beat Beethhoven’s masterpiece!

If I’m able to record every single phone call of yours, I’ll create a playlist that I can listen to infinitely!

Talk to me…Tell me about what you like and what you hate..Tell me about the moments that got you in tears and the memories that you’ll always remember..

Talk to me about you..your thoughts..your goals and career.

I may not be part of them but your life became part of me..

It’s the moment when the eyelid waits eagerly for many minutes to meet its other half in a magical blink!
It’s the time the heart awaits to rest in silence between two beats!

It’s when the trees sway crazily with the strong wind’s blow while keeping its root firm to the ground; ready to stand still when the wind is gone!

So don’t stay awake all night to see the sunrise. But sleep deeply till you welcome the morning arrival as the darkness vanishes away!

Remember that the sun waited all night and the moon waited all morning for that remarkable meeting!

Patience is when you travel within time; and with time prepare yourself…for the right time!

The Mirror

My heart sinks whenever your eyes meet mine and a thousand ideas flow in my mind. However unable to make itself out as words, it pounds my heart against my chest so hard that blood glows up my cheeks, forcing my eyes to lower obediently. But yours still stare for another comeback.

Looking up at you again hesitantly, your eyes cheer up for my return and with a welcoming wink you take my breath away. And you tell my heart to keep calm? It can’t! Increasing rythmically, I can see your eyes dancing to my heartbeat! 

A wandering boat is my heart and a sea of secrets is your eyes..I can’t know where will you take me so I’d rather stay at my shore..

I can’t swim if I feel like I’m drowning and If I’m lost, I’m afraid I’ll lose my way back to myself..

But I do confess that your eyes are so beautiful that my fish-eyes will definetely fall for the bait you set!

Silently observing the confusion battle in my eyes, with a calm nod of your eyelids, you comforted me!

Excited, my eyes search yours carefully to catch a hint for a confirmation and I catch myself see…myself in your eyes!

Time to live

A day holds a gift of opportunities for you to open; the unoppened ones will not stay for the next day. What is gone is gone..
A year holds a million gift of opportunities; were you grateful enough to open at least a hundred of them? Because what is gone is gone..

Remember that each gift is a life point for you to live the day and year. So simply you were lifeless at times!

Now that a new day, a new year is coming your way, promise yourself to unwrap all of them. You may not win at all times but you will sure lose many chances down the drain if you didn’t.

Enough of counting days and running past them; have the guts to live every passer-by because now is the time for you to live!

At First Sight

Evening was getting over, and I was wandering down the road. Trees began to chase me with their shadows. Fearfully, I increased my steps rushing the moments of being with my own company.

Slowly, a pale ray crosses my eyes and I reluctantly look up following the trace of the mysterious guest.

On spur of moment, the entire place was brightened and everything surrounding me was shining!

My eyes couldn’t resist to investigate the owner with curiosity. And there it is! Floating in the midst of nowhere. As far as it is, I can still see it clearly.

Round, smooth and full of light! Unlike the way they describe it having uneven surface and rough edges.

However for me it looked perfect.

So calm and quiet. Like a still painting; one could look at speechlessly for hours.

My heart melted as I kept on staring at the night visitor.

Even though I didn’t hear anything, I can sense the feel of vibrations reaching to conquer me completely.

Suddenly I felt it moving away hinting me that time has come for us to part.

Despite the night which came to an end, it couldn’t stop the endless radiance that defeated every corner of  darkness.

It moved slowly across the sky collapsing into the clouds. Reappearing again naughtily,  I then realized that it was love… at first sight!
