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!

The Fear

Looking up to the star-lit sky, she recalls that unforgettable night. The night when she longed to hear the three words..”I am here”. Though he said those words with hesitance; her innocent heart accepted that little lie.

He wanted to show her how manly he was. So he listed promises as much as he could say, lifting that poor foolish girl’s hopes to more than they could stand. 

She was full of life and she deserved to be loved and to love. But the only fault she was accused of was that she wanted to share the happiness of life with the one she thought will love her till the end.

The “I am here” were just words to shut her emotions. The rest of her days were empty having him beside her.

He left her weeping till her love tried to escape her throat. Her soul was trapped between the cages of her heart and her memories lost to fade away.

As a star falls in the sky, she lets out a teardrop from her eye; It may be a glimpse of that bitter memory, a rage towards her blind belief or the fear of promises..

The Big Day

She walked down the aisle in a long white dress…

Holding her bouquet in her hands, she remembered how many times she played the petal game to know the answer to this day.

It’s like a dream..a dream come true…a dream was thought impossible, but as her lover reminds her everytime, that it’s possible by his side!

She walked past the welcoming people rising from the church benches. Feeling proud of the clapping hands…proud of her decision and is excited to meet the one waiting for her on the other side.

She smiled at the people who where holding their tears back. Their eyes spoke of their shock, confusion and joy.

The day they received the invitation for this event was sudden and unplanned. Instead of thinking of her own life, many questioned her parents’ and family’s reactions.

But she made it! Here she is, walking firmly, flipping her long hair for the last time…

As she nears the altar, a teardrop slides down her cheek.
She remembered herself being here in a white dress 17 years ago..She recieved Him that moment but never gave herself back.
Today she decided to fully commit to the vow..

and she said YES!

Is it when your eyebrows move up excitingly or your eyes widen up to see the beloved clearly?

Is it when you tend to spend time with someone you wish to stay next to, forever?

Is it when you desire to caress the face gently to let the one know that you care?

Is it when you smell the scent in the air even after the owner has left for hours?

Is it when you can distinguish that unique voice among all the sounds your ear, drums to?

Is it when your heart pounds finding  the intense love?

Love is the eternal voice that calls you everytime you experience “your definition” of love.
It becomes louder and louder shouting to convince you of the pure love that is ready to pour into you..
It’s divine, honest, beautiful, exciting.
That is Love.

Love is thinking about that Person all the time and trying to connect with the purest form instead of fantasizing..
Love is the strong trust you have without any proof.
Love is connecting through the pure soul.

Love is a word. That Word itself took the form of Love.

The Heart full of Garden

Hi Mr. Car Freak,

If your car may take you places where you dream to visit..then choose my heart as your destination!

There are no gates, no high fences, no barking dogs, no thorns..

What you will find is a small door. Just tap on it gently and it will open to welcome you inside.

After that long weary ride, you’ll sure need a rest. But before you let out a sighing breath, it will be captured by the view of the inside of my heart.

A beautiful garden filled with sweet fragrance and different kinds of flowers except for roses..

There in the middle of the garden, an empty space with fertile soil is waiting for the rose seed you’re carrying in your hands.

All it needs is to be watered and nourished and taken care of so that it grows an exquisite bed of roses..

P.S. There is one sign on the door of the heart that says:”this place is not for rent; you’re welcome only if you are ready to stay”.
