My Submission

Love On New Year’s Eve

I gaze sideways at the curtain because there’s just too much to say,
I anchor my words, my thoughts…as I wait for something you to convey. 

There is an urgency in this comfort, something my tapping foot awaits,
Yet, that time, the shadows of hope seemed to fade out the gate. 

My graphite scribbled intents are erased by your good bye,
I put a smile on, say the same and nod my head with a sigh. 

The 2:00 am disconnects are brutal yet so is when you say “good night”,
Things frustrate me, they confuse me
But god ! Talking to feels just so right. 

In many ways than one, you evoked feelings I never thought I deserved,
Believe me when I say laughs along with tears we’re served. 

Yet here I am, staring into your hazel eyes thinking if I can ever escape,
My soul feels unencumbered. I’m lost…in your surreal gape. 

Then comes those times where my tresses crave your stroke
While the hopes of that are futile and that of I’m aware
Just…sorry I am for those sleepless nights when all I wished was for you to be there. 

Then came that lingering moment when the freeze cloaked my clock
 (time stopped)
That night, those words slipped out as my heart lost the key to its lock. 

I’m smirking as I write these words, rolling my eyes cause these circumstances I don’t believe !
I guess all I’m trying to say is ‘I love you’ and baby...that wraps my New Year’s Eve.


Here are a few bloggers I would like to nominate-

Thank you and Good Luck !

My Answers to Ishita’s Questions

  1. What does true friendship mean to you?

True friendship to me is where firstly you have a lot of inside jokes😆

And secondly, true friendship just includes supporting your friend no matter what. ☺️

2. How would you describe spirituality?

Spirituality is a broad concept although I perceive it as a state of being concentrated on ones soul and letting go of material irrelevances which come as we grow.

3. “All’s fair in love and war.” Do you believe in this? Why or why not?

No. Killing you brothers in war or slitting your wrists for love is just not justified.

4. This may seem like a strange and random question. What according to you was the most horrible/evil/atrocious thing done in human history? (It can include both recent and ancient history, mythologies etc.)

That’s an interesting question. I think the worst thing done in human history was that earlier people belonging to the LGBTQ+ Community were specifically sent to conversion schools and were given certain medicines to become straight. Many people felt suffocated and felt that they weren’t allowed to be themselves. This drove many teens to commit suicide.

Love is love no matter with whom.🏳️‍🌈

5. What is one thing that humanity needs to learn in these times? (I mean these times in general, not COVID-19 times!)

I think today people just need to learn to listen. I get it that you might have a lot of opinions but sometimes when someone needs to talk….Just listen.
