Momentary Qualm

I had a strange dream last night,

ghost and silhouettes,

waiting for me in an empty room,

heart full of wildfires burning,

saying ‘I love you’ to my favourite human one last time

they shouted, ”Wake up”

and I lied in bed, trembling.

Sigh… ‘Nightmare’ – Qualm

Bookshelf of thoughts !!!!

I am feeling you in a dream, a place you can stay forever,

The quiet in the morning before either of us speak

Your hand in my hands,

I want to build a bookshelf for all your thoughts

I wouldn’t know the first thing about starting,

But you want me to learn cooking (Cake, ice cream, pizza, pav bhaji)

Collaboration

Temporary Love

The day I fell in love

Was the day you told me,

You didn’t feel the same.

That even though it was nice,

I didn’t inspire you

Or make your heart stop.

The day I fell in love

Wasn’t some beautiful perfect day.

It was cloudy and murky

A stench of things rotting.

There was no sunshine

No silver lining or rainbows.

The day I fell in love

I felt like drowning.

My chest hurt like crazy,

Eyes itching from rubbing,

My bones collapsing on itself,

Blood leaking into crevices.

The day I fell in love

I remembered the little stuff.

When you touched me it was amazing, I never knew that I had so many nerve endings.

How you grabbed my hair,

How you tasted on my lips,

How you felt against my skin.

I revered every little thing.

The day I fell in love

I didn’t hurt me,

Just because you did.

I didn’t cut myself

Or make me sick,

I stopped myself in time.

The day I fell in love

I stood in front of the mirror

And looked at me.

The black hair you liked.

The lips you kissed.

The curves you touched.

The day I fell in love

I loved my hair for its smell.

I loved my lip for its smile.

I loved my curves for its softness.

I loved my scars for its memories.

I loved me.

The day I fell in love

I realised that

I didn’t need to inspire you.

I needed myself to create me.

The first time I fell in love

Was the day you broke my heart.

Temporary Love

Under Construction

I am being too lazy to write toady, so I searched quotes for today’s prompt word: Better and here are some quotes which will straight away go to the list of ‘My Favourites’.

  • It is better to travel well than to arrive. Buddha
  • Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. – Albert Einstein
  • Loneliness adds beauty to life. It puts a special burn on sunsets and makes night air smell better -Henry Rollins
  • There is no better than adversity. Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance the next time – Malcolm X
  • Life is too short to worry about anything. You had better enjoy it because the next day promises nothing – Eric Davis

I save quotes, stories, letters and text messages/ Conversations of my favourite people and read when I feel out of the blue. Because sometimes slight reminiscence can make everything Better.

Human Library

“How are we to understand each other, if we do not have the opportunity to talk to each other?” – Ronni AbergelInventor of the Human Library

It is said that everyone has their own story, but unless you open the book and start reading you never actually know what the story is.

Keeping in this mind, back in the year 2000, Ronni Abergel and his brother Danny and colleague Asma Mouna and Christoffer Erichsen started a Human Library as a project in Copenhagen, where people can borrow human to read and talk.

The Human Library ™ aims to establish a safe conversational space, where difficult questions are expected, appreciated and hopefully answered by the Human Book on loan.
It was developed to challenge societal prejudices wherever and for whatever reasons they occur, and to help people form a better understanding of those with whom they share their communities.

when I came across the idea of Human Library on Social Media, I got so surprised by the idea of borrowing human on loan to read. so I decided to open it in Surat, Gujarat, India after taking official permission from Human Library Organisation.

so I started preparation to set up Human Library but the journey was never easy. what glued me to make this possible was love for the diverse culture of India.  India is one of the most diverse lands found anywhere else in the world. From language to dressing-style, the country has been hailed as one of the most complex amalgamations of various cultural identities. A large number of different cultures, knitted together in such a close and perfect manner, make India’s diversity one of the wonders of the world.

But to live in a world’s biggest democratic country like India, where language and lifestyle change at every step, we need to be able to talk without any insecurities in a very calm manner. and it is possible only when we can talk about it in our community.

1st postSo here I am with the Hunan Library Surat version to help people learn to appreciate others as a different idividual, understand social prejudices and stereotypes while listing to their experiences. you can check out here for more information

Mslazyboots in Himalayas

The more you document your life, the more you check in, you tweet, you blog, you capture moments, the more you do all of this stuff, the more you make stories out of it, and if you do that much, you became a spectator to your own life.

The Himalayas, from a mountain range in Asia.

The Himalayas include over fifty mountains, and I got a chance to climb Mount Chandrashila, Uttarakhand, India. a few days back.

“Moon Rock” – Mt. Chandrashila, the summit of the Tungnath.

Chopta Campsite. The small village of Meadows and evergreen forest area and Mini Switzerland in winter.
