Forgotten Tales

Screenshot_20170715-002909_1

All the while eating the soul away
Destroying it from the inside
To the out; ripping it apart,
Filling you with dread and despair.
Secrets of heart grow
Heavier day by day
While we learn to walk about
With a tailored smile on our face.

Thoughts, plans, regrets,
Sometimes even wishes
Not all secrets can be shared.
Layers by layers these secrets pile and
Everything is locked up and stored behind.
We donne a mask we seldom want to reveal.
People, you say you have no secrets!
And I say I have tonnes…

Look deep into your darkest memories 
You’ll find a forgotten tale,
A murmured doubt, and a few
Forbidden stories, with unfinished ends…
There are secrets…
Secrets on the inside of me
Smothered in their prime, yet blazing with heat,
That I’ll endeavour never to reveal.

Wow… 1002 Follows…!!!

Wow… 1002 follows…!!!

For a slow blogger like me whose blog has just completed its first anniversary two months ago… having 1002 followers is a very good reason for celebration.

I just love the yellow dot on the bell and the notification sound that plays, when I get a like/comment/follow. Also, it’s always great to hear constructive criticism… It helps me write better. When I had embarked on this journey in the blogosphere I was totally clueless. In the last 6 months, I have made a few good friends here who have genuinely helped me grow in this field.  Today if I don’t get their comments on my work it feels somewhat incomplete. I don’t need to name them. They already know who they are as I’ve often told them so. Normally we don’t carry these friendships into out personal lives… but these few friends have gone beyond just levels of blogging and have always been there goading me to write and write better. To them, I dedicate my today’s beautiful day.

Honestly, I am at a loss for words. I have just moved my residence…and all the setting up of the house, new job and heat of this place really got to my grey matter rendering it almost useless. I had literally gone into the ‘writer’s block’  mode.  Then comes along this stranger who says use my photographs to write and feel free to use them. And I did. Somehow his photographs speak to me and I am able to write. Not the usual long poems I normally write but quotes that prevent my brain from rusting. Some of those photographs are just too good to pass up. And the best part is they are not Googled. They are originals! Thank you dost.

After I started blogging I started experimenting with my writing… quotes and short stories (though one is still half and pending since long.) Wow, now I could write both! I  am really grateful that you all have bothered to read what I write and have taken time out to comment and follow me.  I have been a little a lazy in my follow ups but this I shall rectify soon enough.

New Attraction

I and Siba have started a new blog “myclicksyourstory,” where we post only original photos that have been clicked by Sibananda. They speak to me and they shall speak to you too. You are free to use these pics as a writing prompt and write a poem/ prosetry/ short story/ fiction/flash fiction anything that you like. Please leave a link to your blog post in the comments section. We will surely follow you up. That’s a promise.

I take the opportunity to Thank you ALL for liking my poems/quotes and short stories which is a BIG motivating factor…. with your support I hope to keep writing, editing and bringing my work to you in future too….

A Hormonal Meltdown

Menopause_art

By: Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

Easily displeased
Quick to be disappointed
Crushed by weight gain and calcium depletion
Sagging breasts and a pear shaped figure
Aching bones and aching patella
Stretch marks and varicose veins
Inadequate and solemn answers to questions
Sometimes too critical or aggressive
And a hormonal meltdown….

~o~

Keen intelligence yet detached humour
Mid age crisis; searching for eternal love
Zero tolerance to bull shit and attitude
Or laughing at herself
Sometimes a stranger even to herself
Hot flushes; fluctuating blood pressure
Progression from heels to flats…Occasionally
Missing a step while climbing or walking
And a hormonal meltdown….

~o~

Superior knowledge; experienced, affectionate,
Queer, funny yet tender and understanding by default
Echoing silences and self-castrations
Occasionally crossing over the line
As they inch towards reaching their prime
A cranky child; trapped in her skin fighting
A losing battle against age spots and wrinkles
They’re in menopause state of mind
Facing a hormonal meltdown….

Living in A State Of Denial: “Prosetry”

sand-head

By: Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

I accept that the truth hurts
But what hurts more
Is living in a state of denial.
Afraid of facing the truth.
Overwhelmed by our dysfunctional world
We constantly practice denial
Ignoring reality
Idealising the non-existent
Taking refuge in nostalgia
We refuse to let it go.
Choking on self-respect
I wonder why
We choose to hurt ourselves
By searching for continuous mirth?
Face it. Confront it. Let it go.
Free yourself from the sorrows
Follow your heart
But do listen to your mind for
It knows. For only the
Mind can treat the cancer
Of living in a state of denial

Let The Magic Work

img_20160515_215143.jpg

By: Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

Rays of light
Peering down from
The cusp of heaven
A heavenly touch of sunshine
Piercing through the cloudy sky
Slipping through the golden gates,
As if blessing me in my
Moments of personal glory,
As my dreams become reality.
 
Looking back I feel
So easy, was the idea of giving it all up!
So easy it was to think of not writing anymore,
But one thing I was not prepared for
Was to tame the voices and the words that
Played truant as I went to bed.
To silence this voice of mine,
To let the words all scatter
And fall around me.

Taking a deep breath
Look upwards and feeling blessed
I walked back inside
To the warmth of home
Throwing away all the uncertainties
To the wind; trusting my instincts
Letting the magic work
Chill out with a glass of wine
As I lay my anxieties of the day to rest.
