Why must we be so apart, lovers of a kind from the start; The cookies lie there astray, half baked to my utter dismay; I changed the drapes from black to red, yet they remind me of you instead; The whispers you left on my cheek I hear, You feel so far yet so near; Your beloved honeysuckle blooms every day, I can't help but look away; That blue tee still carries your scent; one piece of unwashed laundry I resent; How strange it is and how unfair, a long distance relationship is tough to bear; Another whiff of smoke fades away, without blending with yours on the way; This widening gap may swallow me whole, little love come close; Goosebumps I still get as much, I wonder if they miss your touch; From plump curves and messy hair, to lifeless blank walls that I now stare; Your voice echoes on my earphones,but it doesn't last as your cologne; Bring me to where you are, my love, for that is what I await, my paradise; For each day I will strive, alas until my hope survives.  

Creativity in the times of crisis

As COVID-19 is wrecking havoc globally, India enters an official 21 days lock down today. COVID-19 also known as Corona Virus is a real disruptor. Even though everyone is aware of the greater good, most of the social media posts show how people around the world are annoyed on being locked down at home with the restrictions. That got me thinking, what sort of creative outlets would one use to keep calm in the face of isolation / quarantine / social distancing ? A few ideas that got me interested were: Writing - Both digitally and in real life, Innovative Cooking, Practicing Kon Mari Let it flow!  As a writer stuck in a writers block, I found this to be the perfect time to finally collate my thoughts. Others being penning down a few letters to loved ones, completing my half written poems (the one below was spontaneous YEET!!), maintaining a calendar and so on. Starting from my blog here to take off ;) Write, write, write it down, Steadily down the page, Merrily, merrily, mer

Poem – A drop in the ocean

Poem – A drop in the ocean I am but a drop in the ocean, the one with the power to slay, I am but a drop in the ocean, a part not everyone can play. I am but a drop in the ocean, and there's little I can do, I am but a drop in the ocean, one plus one makes two. I am but a drop in the ocean, an ocean so vast, I am but a drop in the ocean, still pretty steadfast. I am but a drop in the ocean, but I give out my hand, I am but a drop in the ocean, because united we stand. I am but a drop in the ocean, so small I look frail, I am but a drop in the ocean, yet everything I do leaves a trail. I am but a drop in the ocean, nothing goes in vain, I am but a drop in the ocean, when we come together as rain. I am but a drop in the ocean, what matters the most is you, I am but a drop in the ocean, a strength only you can pursue.   ‘This post is a part of Write Over the Weekend , an initiative for Indian Bloggers by blogadda ’
