"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry


love (2)

silence I am and I’ll be silence
till you’ll find your way back to me.
go fight your wars and break all your demons
my heart is here, quietly burning in the night.
go gaze in a million eyes and listen to million voices
among them all I am the only shelter
for your spirit that cannot find rest under man made roofs.
desert of curiosity seeking everywhere
I am your soothing rain.
wild river flowing out in the unknown
you will always retun to your source
to mend your pain and cradle your heart.
we are one.

  3. Ahem! Unconditional love? or two notch less 🙂
    What’s Saturday for you like?

    April 6, 2013 at 11:10

    • Saturday was only 15 hours of work, with lots of stress. That much about my weekend. 🙂
      But I did not understand the comment: unconditional love/two notch less? please explain, my English is not that brilliant to understand what you meant.

      April 6, 2013 at 23:07

      • Just like that. You spoke of unconditional love the other day in reference to your mother and this poem though about lovers speaks no less.
        15 hours they make you work?!
        That hurts.

        April 7, 2013 at 12:03

      • I am used to work even 20 hours or more bro, that is no problem for me. It’s though sometimes but if one is very motivated and loves his work it’s not that much of a disaster. 🙂
        Nobody MAKES me work, I can arrange my days of work and sometimes I work a lot so that i can have an extra day off in which I do other things important for me, like learning, reading or writing and many others. I try to balance all the aspects of my life.
        Well about the poem, I know from my own life all the possible kinds of love and they are all beautiful. No matter what I write it’s sincere and all the people I love I honestly love them from the heart. So by saying that I think I say it all. This goes back to what you said about life, about feeling that one is on the right path. 🙂

      • 🙂
        Hm, Seems you’re in a pleasant mood today.
        I’m a bit bored though. Is there a post you’d like me to read if you free to talk or later?

        April 8, 2013 at 14:10

      • Read my new post from today, Balance. I am working also on another 2 posts.
        And whoever wants to talk to me finds me on my blog Arjun. 🙂

        April 8, 2013 at 14:13

      • Uff, I said if you free right NOW cause I’m bored right NOW

        April 8, 2013 at 14:15

      • 🙂 I’m free, what is bothering you bro?

        April 8, 2013 at 14:16

      • Not much. Just coming to the end of what I set out to do on WP. Soon I’ll be done.
        What next is bothering a bit which will till I discover something new.
        No reason. I get bored too soon with anything.

        April 8, 2013 at 14:19

      • Well I know quite a few people that get bored with what they do or even in relationships. And you know what, all can be actually fixed, even the boredom.
        What do you mean by coming to an end with WP? You think of giving up your blog? 😦

        April 8, 2013 at 14:22

      • Yeah. I set out like a film-maker to tell a story, show my film and it was a great show, I guess. Movie has to end, right?!

        April 8, 2013 at 14:36

      • No, Arjun.
        This blogging thing is no movie and it does not have to end. Blogging is about sharing you passion, and you will always be fiery about literature, poetry and image. This is not a movie or just an episode, it is the passion of your life, your purpose in life, this is WHO YOU ARE. Be proud of yourself bro. You are a fantastic writer and photographer.
        I know that sometimes we have no more inner interest or energy to carry on, but the secret would be to do something new. That meaning not closing your blog, but posting something new, about something you did not approach before.

        April 8, 2013 at 14:38

      • Yup. Of course, we can begin a new movie. A new form in poetry and images. That’s exactly what I’m wondering. What is next?

        April 8, 2013 at 14:41

      • Well you can try, isn’t it?
        A good challenge would be to find fantastic photos you like and write a poem to them, or imagine a piece of prose that goes with it. That is why I sometimes write for challenges bro. Not for winning, but for improving my ability to write and my English as well.
        You can play any game, you can improvise, the possibilities are limitless. 🙂
        Do you think that Bukowski has written every single day of his life? No, he did not. He must have had many days of being low and depressed and absolutely drunk and he made it through those days and he filtered all he has been through and that is how he wrote his best poems. Think about that when you have a bad day. 🙂

        April 8, 2013 at 14:49

      • How about making music videos?
        I’d love to do that. There’s so many talented artist, folk singers particularly, I can make videos for them.

        April 8, 2013 at 14:55

      • Yes, why not? If you have the possibility to do that, do it. You can even try some videos on music you like using your photos or photos you like. You can make this experiment. Try and see the impact.
        You know, I love poetry but I could not only live out of that. So I work, I write a bit, I try to do a bit of all. You can try the same, write, make videos, and from each little thing you do you will get your share of satisfaction and you willl also see with what you are the best. And you will be able to choose what is your thing after trying several things, right?
        You remember that you told me that you never miss the sunrise? How come you never posted photos of it? Do you have any idea how many people would actually love that? And what if you make videos with music and your thoughts and poems? Or just write every morning your positive thoughts for the day and share them together with your sunrise photos? Do you have any idea how many tens of thousands of people would be grateful for a positive thought and beautiful sunrise in the beginning of their day? 🙂

        April 8, 2013 at 15:01

      • In here lies the answer. I’ll copy paste your advice and work out a plan. Cool? 🙂

        April 8, 2013 at 15:03

      • 🙂 Cool, try, copy, make a plan, go out, take photos, don’t be afraid or sad or bored, life has so much beauty Arjun.

        April 8, 2013 at 15:06

      • Just bored. I’m fighting it since I was born 😉

        April 8, 2013 at 15:08

      • Well it’s funny, I’ve been sad in my life but I never get bored, I have always loads of things to do. Maybe because I get involved and I work on several things at the same time. So when I have a day off I swear I would like to do 100 things and I do as much as I can and still I wish I had more time…:lol: 😉

        April 8, 2013 at 15:14

      • How unique is that! 😉

        April 8, 2013 at 15:16

      • Is it? I never thought about it. I am who/what I am and I don’t compare myself to anyone. I guess we are all unique and beautiful and perfect the way we are.:)

        April 8, 2013 at 15:19

      • Absolutely!

        April 8, 2013 at 15:20

      • Yay! 🙂 I’m waiting for those posts with sunrises/sunsets.

        April 8, 2013 at 15:22

      • And please make photos of those sunrises and sunsets that you see… I am the first that will press the like button on your blog, and a hundred others at least after me. 🙂

        April 8, 2013 at 15:20

      • Aw! Alright, I’ll post a sunrise picture for you. On my other blog 🙂

        April 8, 2013 at 15:24

      • 🙂 thank you!!!!
        And see how many likes you’ll get. :lol::P

        April 8, 2013 at 15:25

      • I am in a good mood?
        Well maybe I am because I empower myself often to be like that. I am a powerful empath and I listen to people and I give my unconditional love and energy freely, which sometimes drains me.Many have no idea who i am or how I feel. I have my own ups and downs and my downs… I live them on my own and nobody sees me, so it takes a lot of inner strength to stand up. But you know what, I love life and I love people and I really want to stand up even when I am in the deepest sorrow, and I do stand up.
        And if you need a hand to hold your hand when you feel down like today here I am bro.:)

        April 8, 2013 at 14:41

      • I know. One may count on you, anytime, any day 🙂
        You are a brave soul, a true heart.

        April 8, 2013 at 14:48

      • Well I am (and shhhhh don’t say that too loud because I might pay for being like this again and again… ).
        But I have been also stupid and weak and silly and low and alone and lost and angry and… and… and…
        Yet I put on the side the bad parts and I try to make something out of my life. And so should you, you are the master of your life Arjun. Whatever you set in your mind, you can do it. National TV prime time poetry reading? Yes you can. Famous poetry? Yes you can. Famous photos? Yes you can make that.
        You are brave true and fantastic soul Arjun my brother. 🙂
