Of course there ain’t no tide timetable for love because she wants to sweep you off your feet! Playful minx 🌊 This week she showed me the more I give, with no expectations, just for the love of it, the more comes in, flowing from unexpected places, surprising me from all angles, like one of those fun arty water fountains 🖤💦

s i x t e e n t h || in painful memory of the nirbhaya case, five years later and nothing.

That Winter night
On the Sixteenth,
She died,
But not alone.

She died
Just like many of us do,
Every other moment.

She died,
And took the
Human in humanity
Along.
She died
With all hope that
Wound our hearts
Like knives on wood.

We stay on
The scars remain.

She died
With all the pain that
We keep trapped beneath our smiles
Like acid in a jar made of flesh.

We burn on
The disguise remains.

She died
With all the words that
We hear through our lives
Because they say we are
But a commodity
They find, they get
They lose, they get another.

She died 
With all the hate
We bury within
The darkest depths 
Of our soul
Because they say we are nothing
But theirs
For their eyes to rake over our flesh
For their hands to touch
For their lust to destroy.

She died
But lived with all the horror
We choke on
On late nights
In dimly lit streets
On bright afternoons
In empty rooms
On ominous evenings
In drunken looks
On cold mornings
In painful screams.

She died 
And we live through
Death everyday.

She died,
But didn't die alone.

And they?
They forgot.

You don't have to know what the next line is and your life does not have to be word perfect. Sometimes your going to fumble do or say the wrong thing but that's just how it is, the definition of perfect is different for everyone. What matters is how you feel about your life and the lines you're singing so stop singing along to someone else's song and write your own. I used this photo of @seizurebird because i regularly steal her stuff and she's singing so it worked really well with my long winded slightly cheesy metaphor

With her eyes shut,
she thinks she can hide
from the world,
but he knows,
oh, he knows,
Her face isn't space
enough,
but she can always count
on the smoothness of skin,
and she knows,
oh, she knows,
Her chin is not the ending
as a cleavage makes
for a great passageway
for the tears
for the years
she couldn't hold onto
anymore

जरा सा तुम बदल जाते, जरा सा हम बदल जाते,
मुमकिन था शायद ये रिश्ते किसी साँचे में ढल जाते
