soulmates (random ramblings)

I would call you a sister (brother/lover/friend)

But I have no inkling of how you will react

So, I would call you my soulmate

I definitely don’t deserve to have a place in your heart

But I know you deserve to be the happiest person in this world

Happiest daughter, wife, sister, brother – The happiest (wo)man

Whereas many known faces drop by, come and hurl something

Talk to you with a view to talk about it to someone else

you always turn up because you have something beautiful to share.

In the world alarmingly relying on the facade and managing it

In the world where I have no faith in relationships

You hold my hand and sit quietly by my side with nothing to reject or rebuke

In the world that cannot tolerate your smile and giggles

You teach us that even anger is right, a tool to understand the self

But above all, you whip round your magic wand and pull me up from my pitch dark abyss.

setting it alight like a wildfire

And I have these ashes like a burned incense

I feel awfully fortunate and indebted to have this privilege, I doubt, I deserve.

But, I’m just a human

A work in progress.

Her perpetual displeasure arising from the hypocrisy in the society underneath the semblance of religion, culture as well as the conditioning for compliance urged her to put down the impressions in her mind.

She describes herself as -- a soulmate, a life alighted on the earth catching the rhythm passing by her. A tinge of joy colours her world and lays its feet on the land where revellers are awaiting her to get into the groove.
