Call from Home

Call from Home

Call from Home "Fetch me a home." He said. "Home?" I chuckled. "Yes, some place, where the walls offer solace and the rooftop soothes me, when I lay beneath it" His eyes seemed lost. "You already live there, darling." I slipped my hand into his. Bewildered he gazed at me. So I continued, "If home were some bricks stacked upon each other and some concrete piled up, I would forever be a vagrant. But I reside, here under this skin. My soul plays in the gaps of my veins. My body is my home. I'd decorate it with the fabric of love and pierce my flesh with utter emotions. Cleanse my blood for the dirt of the times long gone. The phenomenon of home is restrained to an enclosed space or a hundred paged book or some person or some memory you decide to live in. Shed that cloak of pretense. Accept the home you were born in. For once. The melanin in my skin shall be the glittered sky you wish to see from your window. My dull hair shall be...

Captioning Photographs

Pre-Script: If you're a writer and you've got friends who do photography or, well, post any kinda posts you've heard this: "Bhai is photo pe caption dede" Translation: Bro, give me a caption for this photograph. A few months ago, I did this:- Jokes apart, the sole reason I do it is, I get a good subject to write upon.

(Obviously on my phone, I'll show it to you, soon.) Here are two of the recent photos that I wrote a caption for and they've left me perplexed!

Make sure you check out her blog and her Instagram for marvellous sketches. Take flight This is for all the artists out there..the ones who had so many things in their head to recreate on a paper with something as simple as a pencil and colours of any kind..who were waiting to get better and better so that they could show the world exactly what they wanted. The waiting is over. Pick up that medium and just start creating without holding back. You were born to do this. The art is not just in your skills it's in YOU. No one can compare to that. Let the lines be wobbly and let those colours out of those crooked borders. Just keep creating no matter what. No block or nothing can...

What makes us human?

What makes us human?

© Divya Gupta - A writer of deepest thoughts and widest vision. A person whose short write ups will indulge your heart in an emotional sea. I won't ask you to follow her, her work will make you do it yourself.❤️ We were only a couple minutes old when we started to express. It wasn't something we learnt. It was something we were created with finesse. Expressions which should have been awakened and optimized, Were only beaten away and criticized. We grow up to learn that it's critical to be logical, And it's only logical to be critical. Expressions portray vulnerability. While vulnerability depicts weakness. We start to strive from what we learn. We detach ourselves from one's to be attached. And attach to what we're trying to get detached from. We realise many things aren't real, And real things aren't many. We hold on to feelings and souls so close. And just when we realise someone's eyes are on us, We leave them all hanging midair no matter the vows. All because we feel "feeble" Oh but feeble only rhymes...

Looking for humanity

Be kind, be brave.

Be kind, be brave.

“How was the city? Did you like it?” She enquired. “Well, it was helpless and romantic but mostly suffocating”, I replied. She sighed, apparently this wasn't the answer she was expecting. But I only spoke the truth. I could see people with hollow eyes and dry lips- so void of any feeling. I could see people getting into those showrooms buying a piece of cloth that costs far more than the actual worth, while children begged outside these very showrooms. I could see how everyone was in search for some place to escape, for something to disappear in. And since they were unable to find it, they pretended to be in love or having fun. Pretension was their escape. I could see how history no longer mattered to them, how scared they were of the future. And somewhere in between these two they were living the present. And at that moment the world seemed so bitter and unkind as if it's put there to watch you drown or build...

I let them die.

I let them die.

I am bitter. I mourn for the people I couldn’t become and I blame the world for it. They killed the poet They killed the writer They killed the playwright and everything they could’ve written. They killed the actor They killed the model They killed the muse and everything they could’ve become. They killed the firefighter They killed the doctor They killed the soldier and everyone they could’ve saved. They killed the child They killed the romantic They killed the dreamer and everything they could’ve accomplished. They killed everything I could’ve become and I’m bitter. Because in the end, I let them die. ©Caffeinated Chi - An amazing blogger friend/guide of mine who's been a great inspiration and motivation to me!
