Narrative Changed

In my last post, sometime in June, I mentioned a possibility of narrative change. Oh yes! and change did it. The worries, pains, shocks of yesterday didn’t melt away *I doubt they will, any time soon* but the burden has gotten lighter, significantly lighter. Although they’re events that catapult me back to that dreadful December morning. Like seeing my dad cry. Da** that’s terrible. Seeing him choke and eventually succumb is not the worst part, its the helplessness I feel. I have strength, a solid block of inner strength and in moments like these, I want to give all of it to this man who most of my life revolves around. I’ll revisit this another day…today is about my changed narrative.

Have you ever said silent goodbyes? The kind that you really don’t want to, not because they’re difficult, or the parting is so emotional *I suffer from emotion deficiency* but because you really don’t know what tomorrow holds, yet you have somehow convinced yourself to plunge into that bleakness and uncertainty and you are worried that loud goodbyes might haunt you if you ever have to retrace those steps. Even if we don’t burn bridges, I don’t want to have to walk a path I have boldly and riskily bade goodbye.

So, that time finally came.The curtain falling to mark the close of over a quarter of my life. Time came to say goodbye to those lovely and at times not so lovely 13 years of my life in a foreign land. A land that had become my second home. Literally. What was I coming home to? Most certainly my family – my nuclear family. A lot has taught me how this unit is the single most important thing after my own coming soon family (No, am not pregnant)…….

I digress, it’s raining violently outside and my ride is here so, this post has to prematurely end here…..

Home & Warm

These white waves and all their beauty

Will never erase this empty continuity

‘Angels protect you

Troubles neglect you

And heaven accepts you’

You are home

My heart feels warm

Hiatus

My hiatus
Got so much to say, to write, to tell but my brain’s moving too fast for my pen
 
Feels like my story is a common feat yet incredibly personal; 
 
 
 
I drown in this ocean of thoughts and narratives.
 
I swim in this lake of dreams, wishes and what if’s.
 
I cross these rivers of pain, hope, grace and fleeting smiles.
 
I dwell in these streams of promise, that maybe tomorrow, or some other day 
My hiatus will give.

From You, to Us, to Me

I want to go back in time
And live in the gone days
I want every chime
To stop as if in a daze
And only resume, 
if it’s for me to carry. 
 
I wish for me only swiftness
Fear is ejected 
I consider a gladness
Heavens beauty is reflected
From you, to us, to me
Three months on
XO

Knows no wit…..

 

Nobody said these memories,

would cause such grief.

This, a genesis

I’d hoped would bring relieve.

An insatiable void

No way I can avoid,

For every path I tread

Since that Sunday morning of dread

Has You etched on it

This journey knows no wit
