They smile in brilliance

You shattered the glass.

A swift blow was all it took.

 

You tried to mend it,

Only to break it further.

 

You felt you were lucky to have that glass,

But, you pushed it too far.

 

Today, the shards pierce your hands,

Though you can never put them back together.

 

You should have taken better care,

You shouldn’t have kept pushing your luck.

 

See, it has now run out.

The glistening shards are the proof of that.

 

They had stayed together for all these years,

Only for you.

And finally, today they have found their shine.

 

Your luck seems to have shifted to them now,

For they have decided to glitter.

 

Though broken; in pieces; in millions;

They choose to shine despite the pitfall.

 

You have faced an irreplaceable loss,

And so has the glass.

 

However, instead of spilling their own blood now,

They smile in brilliance.

How do you know if you are unhappy?

Unhappiness is a feeling of sadness. It is the feeling that one gets when one is not happy. Sometimes, this feeling is very evident and easy to recognise. But there are times in our daily lives when we cannot point out if we are actually unhappy and what caused these feelings. At times like these, I suggest that one looks out for the below mentioned pointers to ascertain if you are unhappy.

1) Feeling low

2) Feeling irritated or angry.

3) Expressing irritation or anger on something or someone despite no mistake of theirs.

4) Staying distracted and unfocused most of the times.

5) Feeling the need to cry most of the times.

6) The feeling of emptiness.

7) Feeling a lack of confidence.

8) Experiencing loss of sleep or insomnia.

9) Loss of appetite or the will to eat anything.

10) Loss of interest in all activities.

11) Emotional eating (Refer to understand better: http://www.helpguide.org/articles/diet-weight-loss/emotional-eating.htm)

12) Loss of interest in all activities and hobbies.

13) Feeling the need to stay away from all social engagements.

These aforementioned signs can help point out signs of unhappiness in one’s life. When one experiences them temporarily, one can deal with them through short term methods. But during the long term it can lead to physical health problems. Noting these problems and their triggers helps understanding their sources and recognising them. I will be publishing an article tomorrow on my blog. This post will talk on how one can deal with and overcome unhappiness in our lives.

So stay tuned!

Crispy Love

I just love paper.

It’s what defines me.

Newspapers, magazines, books or scraps,

They bring happiness to me as nothing else does.

We share a unique relationship.

One that includes pure joy and happiness.

A love that only gives with no expectations.

So I nurture every piece of paper I come across

And store them with care.

It’s the only love I have known,

It’s the life I have.

Life and Me

She is mysterious.

She is unique.

She loves giving surprises

And hates planning.

She believes only in the goodness in this world.

She is a believer of destiny.

She believes in smiles

And spreading them in the cities.

She talks of honesty and integrity.

She baffles me at times.

But that’s who she’s supposed to be.

She makes me a better person.

She only does what’s best for me (like it or not)

She brings me closer to my dreams

And helps me be me.

She is my life.

She is me.

Loneliness

My dear shadow, the love of my life.

I don’t love you, even though I might.

When you are away, I crave your presence.

And when you are near, there’s only sadness and tears.

You are my creativity and my smile.

You are the tear drop forming at the corner of my eye.

You are my strength and my biggest weakness.

But in spite of the love-hate relationship we share,

I always know you will be there to make me cry,

To make me happy.

My love, my loneliness.

You are the only thing in this world that breaks me

To help me be a better version of myself.
