Being from an average small town (so they would say) nestled in the heart of the Himalayas, I knew moving out of Shimla was inevitable. We kids back home were (and still are) more or less brainwashed into believing that our beautiful little town is inadequate for a good life, which is somewhat true or… Continue reading My Heart Is Where My Home Is
Be a troublemaker – be the rock-ribbed exception. Be an undaunted pig-head, beyond correction. Revolt in defiance against the alliance Of savages and brutes, carpers and prudes. They’ll try to unnerve with opinions and questions, Notions, convictions, belief and perceptions. And intimidate they will with censure and hate. But be brave. Be audacious Be sweetly… Continue reading Firebrand
Struggle every day Which mask to wear today? Vizards infinite Beautiful and bright Ersatz smiles Counterfeit eyes Veneer of grace These faux façades Masking aches Different guise For different pain Each and every day. ~ By Tanya~
No seriously, Tea Time Tale, am I supposed to stab this pretty little heart you sent me in the name of dessert? I don’t have the heart to dig into another heart (again). (I just had to post a picture of this lovely little thing. Happy weekend all.) Heartbreaking indeed!
We spend our lives breeding bizarre eccentricities to make up for our defunct personalities, always on the lookout for someone plagued by the same complexities. In a twisted world full of tortured souls, simple love is an aberration. Simplicity can be hard to swallow when our existence is riddled with a lust for complication and… Continue reading Crawling

Birds and fluttering dragonflies, Blotchy clouds in cobalt skies, And dandelions that pass me by, Carry me as they float to you. Even in my fantasies, Fine frenzies and hovering dreams, In the… Continue reading Sorcery
Three vodka seltzers down, I feel like I’ve gained more perspective on life than the Dalai Lama. All this is pointless, I tell myself as I slather on a rather obscene amount of red lipstick for the third time. Life is such a circus and here I am participating in yet another senseless charade. Could… Continue reading The Cheater
I know now all too well That love fades from kiss to kiss. Affections die and passions wane. And flames that once set hearts ablaze Are quenched as all feelings drain. Like dwindling fires smothered in rain. Maybe love is designed to fail. To hurt, sting, burn and maim. To make hearts crumble in flames… Continue reading Flames
Someday you are going to meet someone who will permeate into your flesh and bones and fix the weary shards of your fragmented soul, filling every crack and crevice of your broken heart, making you whole again.
