“With reins in my hands, the horse of my dreams is unstoppable and under control at the same time.” — Simran Kankas

When I was a little girl, I did not have anyone with whom I could laugh and share things. Although there were plenty of children with whom I could play, my happiest and sweetest hours were spent in the company of loneliness, which bothered me a lot almost every day. I remember, one night, I was sitting alone on the porch trying to understand the reason for my lonely tears. My tiny mind and sad heart could not…

Dreams do come true!

Whenever I get confused about anything or feel overwhelmed, I pick up my pen and diary and start writing. Sometimes writing a poem helps me get the answer to the question running in my head at the time or a simple quote solves the puzzle. I can say with absolute certainty that writing is like a therapy to me.

The demons began to disturb the sages and seers. …

“Why do you keep breaking mirrors?” the girl asked.

“Because I don’t like what I see. I hate my reflection,” Eli replied.

A week later, he renounced all the luxuries of life and comforts of the world and started living in the forest in a wooden cabin. In nature’s silence and melody, Eli felt connected with life. His heart was happy.

One day while he was collecting the wood for the fire, the bright glare of something almost blinded him. He blinked a few times and saw the diamonds, not too far from where he stood, scattered far and wide…

The beats of my heart create
New songs for you every day
You love me the way I am
You are perfect for me
In every way

You are my one and only
I am your better half
You wipe my tears when I cry
I laugh when you laugh

In your warm embrace
I forget about the cold nights
Our love seems to win
Over our silly fights

I am your sun
That rejuvenates your tired soul
You are my moon
That quenches my thirst
That goes far beyond

I look into your eyes I see our own little…

Our love is toxic
It is taking us over
Yet we crave for more
Like never before

This madness has
consumed us both
Ever since we have
exchanged each other’s heart

While burning up
inside with passion
We embrace the fire of love
in each other’s arms

We are lost in the
ocean of love
Like heaven above
If only they knew
We are home already
that only we can see

Tomorrow if the world
turns upside down
Even if the chaos
fills the whole town
Your heartbeat will be
my favorite sound

What we have is special our love…

i have written so many stories
each and every word
is connected to you
leading me to a place
and every time it is new

praising your bravery
admiring your creation
some talks about your suffering
through my own imagination

some stories are full of complaints
the pages are revealing my pain
how it turns my clear blue sky
into black and sunless again

some are praying for
a hopeful tomorrow
some are wishing for
a beautiful today
some are still wandering
the haunted past
trying to be a
meaningful part

some stories are weaving the warm fabric with the…
