Ms lazy boots in Kerala

“Travel brings power and love back into your life.”
― Jalaluddin Rumi

Recently I visited Kerala, India with my colleagues to escape the routine and I had a very good time in ‘God’s Own Country – Kerala’ South India’s most serenely beautiful state.

Focus

Are your emotions under control ?

No,

I try to Control my emotions pretty well, I try but fail miserably!

I try to hide my feelings but forgot that my eyes can speak, but when you come around they’re all over the place.

But sharing thoughts is the most intimate things that can happen between us.

Sometimes I cling to the thought that you’ll react badly and put up a fight when I tell you that what I’m getting from you isn’t enough. I fear to talk frankly; I can feel the involuntary reactions and the wall built that I can’t get through. But if I could talk, talk openly without hurting each other.

I know that you’ll let me go easily as you let me in. Because of this, I am stuck with whatever you decide I am worth. I can’t resist you long enough to actually leave.

There are limitations I have enforced on myself. But if I could talk, talk without blame, without insecurities.

This is a note from one of those sleepless nights when I couldn’t shut my brain down because I missed you too much.

The Perfume that I most wanted to wear!

“Let’s go we are getting late for the party,” I ruffled to Mr. walking shoes. Though I was not in the mood for a party but decided to join our flock.

“Let’s just watch a movie”, he said, while waiting for our friends to join us but without any second thought, I agreed.

That night we dimmed the light, and lied down, staring into each other’s eyes. His sharp eyes spelt love – it’s not that he lied but his half squished face, stretching a smile on the pillow forced me to love him even more.

“I like this scent of your body”, he said while caressing my face. The ardent touch of his hands was warm enough to love my soul. I’ll trade a million lifetimes to hold his hand and freeze those seconds.

It was 11 PM on some wintery night when we bumped into each other and kissed. I took a long breath and hugged him tightly to inhale his fragrance because it was the only brand of Perfume that I most wanted to wear.
