[141] Echoes of Silence

Come see if you have the same kind of memories echoing in empty rooms!

Smoke words every day.

You left your memories
To echo in this empty room
Each corner of which hides the
fragrance of your lilac breath
The walls capture your heels
when I held you by the waist

It feels as if this is a riverbed
of my insecurities
This empty room
It’s a result of avoidance
of my pain
It’s the culmination
of all that I dreaded
It’s the singular symbol
of my inability to love

I run around this empty space
No longer running away from you
But running away from what you meant
and how difficult it will be
to give meaning to this room again
To make this pain a memory
that only echoes in this room
and not in me

Come and enjoy this heartfelt love poem!!

A Writer's Soul

I find myself tired of writing about love songs,
Or maybe its just love in general, you know, the feeling that has everyone soaring and floating high above the clouds, as though nothing on the ground matters.
Those feelings and emotions that make me blush and laugh,
The ones that have me smiling in the middle of the night,
Shoving my face into the pillows to shake this grin,
But I can’t seem to help myself when I think of you,
And I hate that you seem to be the one thing my mind trails back to time and time again, painting a picture of something that could last forever and ever.

Thoughts of your lips tracing my hips,
Light as a feather, afraid that you’d break me if you gripped to hard,
(But it isn’t my skin I’m worried about you breaking)
Thoughts of you and me, simply enjoying…

Acceptance and respect

Come read Didi’s great post on – Judging, Empathy and Understanding!!!

Didi's Art Design


Easy it is to critisize
But difficult it is
To think oneself into situations
Not belonging to us

We do not live
With decisions
Another person
Has to take

We do not live
The life of anyone
With his/her background
Instead ignore reasons

So no right we have
To condemn or judge
Or make us only better
With hidden motives?

Quote of the Week

Come read “Quote of the Week” on dealing with – everything unresolved in your heart! Don’t Miss these words of wisdom from Our Friend Just Me!!!


Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answers.

-Rainer Maria Rilke

In a State of Uncertainty

Come and enjoy Kim’s beautiful poem about love, longing and letting go!!


I thought about you when a song of ours came on today.

I couldn’t help but smile as thoughts of us came into play.

You used to be by my side whether I wanted you there or not.

Now what I wouldn’t give to have what it is she’s got.

Where is it that I went wrong with you somewhere along the way?

What is it that made you want to find another instead of wanting to stay?

Do you have thoughts of me like I still have of you?

Sometimes I want to forget but your in everything I do.

When I wake up in the morning I see you in my bed.

That’s when I close my eyes and try to erase you from my head.

As I fumble out of bed I see you in the shower.

That is when I try to rush on through that…

Too Much

Come and read “Too Much” and see if you feel this way sometimes too!!!


I can’t bring myself to spill ink

There’s too much

Too much everything

I saw the stars and there was too much

I felt my gut and there was too much

Too much pain

Too much guilt

And too much regret

I read Shakespeare and there was too much

Too many words

Too much love

And even more pain

Everything is a jumbled mess

I walked through a crowd and there was too much

Too many hollow eyes

Too much inhumanity

I took a snap shot of my brain and there is too much

Too much misguided trust

Too much forgiveness

Or not enough

Too much loneliness

Also too many wild thoughts

I went through my files and there’s too much

Too many hopes in the corner

Too many dreams in there too

There is just too much for me to handle

Come let “Reilience” inspire you to listen to your own beat!!

Smell The Coffee

Don’t let life hammer
you into blind acceptance
Question everything
Don’t be mesmerised by ‘things’
they add nothing to your life

Rather, be moulded
by noble thoughts and goodwill
By kindness to all
By fanning flames of passion
And stomping to your own beat
