Remember how it started off after we met at a party? Initially, it was like any other young adult's story. There was excitement; the urge to meet each other whenever time permitted us to; there was youthfulness and then one find day you asked me out, and I said "I do!" Every thing was going on perfectly; the way it should be. Calls between work, kisses between talks. Life seemed somewhat like a fairytale, but again don't we all know that life is not a bed of roses and that feelings are not sure to stay.
I guess love left me long back when your words no longer sounded like a song to me; when I realised that I no longer have a penchant for the touch of your skin.
Here's a truth that I would like to admit. It's sad that I miss you even when you're around me, and that I can't do anything about it. I don't know who is to be blamed here. Maybe, blame would be too harsh a word. I wish I could get you back, the "You" that I madly fell in love with.
Well, I guess John Green was perhaps right when he quoted, "You can never love someone as much as you can miss them." I realise. I let out a long sigh.

I've been quite busy in the last few days, and as such the captions are lacking. I want to apologise for that.
I've seen way too many people lately who feel as if their hard work is completely underrated by their boss, who might choose one of their colleagues for a promotion instead of them. And I am strictly talking about professional job-type work.
Hard work does not equal results; at least not at first. You see, even though you think you are working harder than the said person, he still might be getting better results out of the two of you. Be humble. Good things happen when you stop looking at other people as competition. Greatness happens when you focus so much on yourself, your only competition lies in the mirror. I know I've said this before. Truth is, there's not a soul in this world who can know just how much a person is working behind the curtains; all we see are the results. Trophies are earned during training. When you sweat more in training, you bleed less in the war.
I want you, my dear friends, to focus so much on yourselves that you simply do not have the time to look at how someone else is doing compared to you. I want you to kill your ego and learn to grow without the need of social acceptance. I want you to live your life to the fullest, no matter the cost. They might call you crazy, they might hate you, but in reality, they wish they could be like you.

When they assume one part of you is the whole you
And that's the filter which they choose to view you through
Unable to zoom out to see the full picture
But rather zooming in on a minuscule detail that has little to no effect on the entire structure
Unable to focus the shutter
Long enough to even snap the picture
Flashing different parts of you
Just so an image of you can break through
Providing certain exposure
Whatever it takes to snap the perfect picture
Stop with the photoshop
And allow the perfect imperfections to come forward from behind the backdrop
Force yourself to challenge the status quo
Even when you'd rather just stay in your comfort zone
Develop from the negative
Into something beautiful and positive
Allow your flaws to peek through
Without feeling the need to edit any part of you
Show every pixel
One alone may not be much,but together they come to show a picture clear as crystal
When all is said and done, I ask her
Do you like the girl in the picture? ~Excerpt from "Perception"
Be mindful of what comes out of that hole in your face. 👅
Between my back and food poisoning and a gnarly cold and my wrist and all my other general aches and pains, I’ve been feeling very fragile lately, but not fragile enough to keep from getting a good word/punch in!
Perhaps, I am
a little drunk on emotions
that leak out of the crevices
that I haven’t been able to
I am stranded far away,
in the middle of nowhere,
in the middle of
that provides me clarity.
With a little black dress on
and heels wrecking my ability to dance,
I am moving like I’m lost,
I am dancing like
it’s all I want to be for now.
A dungeon of darkness
rests before me,
a ray of hope
shining above me,
and I hope to come across the answers
to questions that make me restless.
Who am I?
Where am I supposed to be?
What am I supposed to do?
Does it even matter?
how I’m asking questions
to the universe yet
I know I’m not ready
to be struck with answers.
I am good at pretending.
I want to be drunk and happy
within the wild worlds
that I exist between
. -Devanshi Sharma
I'm so glad you stayed, and I still choose you.

For a very special person in my life.
Don't leave soo soon,
It's for you,
That I dance in the desert sun,
Barefoot, on the hot sand,
Revelling in this feeling,
Of the way my skin burns.
Oh, how much I crave,
This heat, this passion.
That you Kindle within me.
And with you gone,
The sun won't rise the same.
It's a dull, cold night,
Until I see you again.

“The best medicine for choice is peace of mind in knowing you are more than the challenge itself.”
When we ask for new paths...
What we don’t expect is the path to be jagged edge rocky, because in our head we believe that we’ve done more than enough to prove that we are in this ting for the long run!
We’ve pushed ourselves
We’ve made lists
We’ve made the sacrifices
We’ve practiced silence to focus on action
We’ve been there, done it and now we want a new fucking T- shirt!
So what the fuck is this sticky yucky crappy situation, that lingers like a bad smell?
The voice inside tells me it’s CHANGE.
The voice inside tells me it’s EVOLUTION.
The voice inside tells me it’s YOU SHEDDING YOURSELF FROM YOUR OLD SELF.
The voice inside tells me to MAKE A CHOICE!
I whisper to myself “sink or swim... sink or swim...” and realise that I am back on my grind doing what’s necessary... doing what’s painful...doing what’s important and doing it with internal conversations that quarrel with my COMFORT ZONE, who NOW wants things to go back to the way things were. (I hear you sobbing...please don’t cry)
Inspired by a conversation I had with a friend in the thick of his evolution:
We really do have the power to keep our bits and pieces moving!
Write your own script...
Become your own accolades.
Keep it moving

Tonight I've been wrapped up in memories. It's amazing how the smallest thing can send an avalanche of memories, good, bad, and ugly cascading down on you. The pain of recovery seems to be worse than the pain of the injury.
I don’t know about you guys, but I hit 2019 running and although it’s been rewarding, I’ve had to remind myself that a healthy hustle is balanced with rest and relaxation. Can’t stop, won’t stop? More like can stop, will stop. 💆🏼♀️
The lonely is worth it
Because I got to know you,
Even if only for a moment.

Not everyone you love will understand that wanting to be with them all the time is a way of showing your affection and adoration. They would not always understand why you make them stay, stop them when they are trying to leave. Not that they don't want to stay, too, but, understand, everyone has a different way to perceiving things. They might think you're trying to hold them down. Well, after all, even the prison guards, don't let prisoners leave. So its wise sometimes, to let them run free and wild, breathe. And let them fall.But Don't you go running then. Yes, They'll hurt, they'll bleed, with their face in the ground breathing in dirt, all they will think of how you tried to stopped them. They'll then think of how you'd go crazy if they even got a tiny scratch and they laughed with happy tears, at you being so concerned, so kind. And that, will light a spark within them. That little spark will burn down this dense forest of mayhem and anguish. And there you will be standing, arms open. A wise person once said, let it all go, see what stays or comes back. .

It weighs on me,
Makes me feel like I can't breathe
Like anchor holding me to the
Bottom of the sea.
The grief is like drowning.
