Escape

IMG_20170704_103538_040.jpgDo you ever feel like just walking away, giving up everything and just escape. For a few hours or maybe days. For some people, travel is an escape. They run away from home and find themselves in faraway, stranger lands. For some, escape is a person and that is the worst kind of hell. Don’t be that person. Just travel because it will teach you that you don’t need to lose yourself in another person. Travel because there is more to life than one person who did not love you back. Travel will make you forget your own problems and you will realize how small they are, in the grand scheme of this universe.

Love story

He was playing a cricket match when he saw her. She was taking pictures of the sky and he stood there waiting for her to see him. He forgot that he was playing and dropped a catch because he was busy looking at her. That’s when she noticed him and smiled back. He couldn’t wait for the match to get finished. As soon as the match was over, he gathered up all his courage, his furiously beating heart and approached her. He faltered, steps and words, both. She smiled again when she saw him and said, hi. He stood there staring at her, willing his words to come out and she waited for him to say something. He finally told her that she is so beautiful that he dropped the catch and made a fool of himself in front of his mates. She laughed and said, “Well, it’s a stupid game, anyways.” Before that day, he never knew that he could fall in love with a laugh, in moments and for a lifetime. Hardly did he know that she was waiting for him too and just like that, on a beautiful day like today, love happened.

Night Souls

IMG_20170630_230637_954.jpgFor people who have darkness inside them, they simply can’t help but love the night. They are the 3 am writers, the lovers, the dreamers, the crazy, the different, the weird ones who find peace within the silence of the night and the insomniacs, who have too many thoughts running in their head that they can’t sleep. They don’t want you to share their loneliness with them but maybe just a little understanding. Trust me when I tell you that no one chooses this life. It’s a gift that we didn’t ask for. It is a burden yet the night brings the solitude that our souls yearn for. There’s a little bit of darkness inside all of us but we the, night souls, were never given any choice. So, we embrace, who we are.

Raindrops

IMG_20170630_121903_525.jpgI went in rain to click this picture. I had to capture the beauty of raindrops on flowers. It just made sense.
Rain cleanses the trees and the flowers and everything looks so beautiful. I wish it could do the same to hearts too, cleanse them of all the pain, regrets and grudges. I wish hearts became beautiful just like these flowers. Even if for a few moments.
