Movies: Reality in jeopardy!

test2blogo

Don’t live your life like they do in movies.

Your life is much more worth than anyone else’s imagination captured in a three hour reel. You gotta filter out the illusion from reality.

There might be background music in those man made moments but there is a man made out from moments.

A walk in the rain without a stolen kiss , a white hair before your 20’s,too much traffic on the road, a dent on the car, fucked up ending of a popular TV show, a dress gone out of stock, a sale turned into a disaster and every tiny thing hurts in real life. A hero as well as a villain both die in reality rather the former one dies much younger. The right one gets nothing sometimes, the evil one wins too, people fail, talent goes to waste, people are stuck in cobwebs of life.We regret the ones we love and even more the ones we didn’t.

Hard work is sometimes the only solution and start-ups don’t always succeed. In reality, movies are extracted from it, not vice versa.

Life is always a change, it’s never constant. No one says in reality, like they say in the movies, “And they lived happily ever after”. There are ups and downs, ups disguised as downs. Businesses don’t bloom like flowers in the garden, the only time travels and flashbacks we have is in our memories and the only category of homo sapiens that can bleed for days and still survive is females.

Life is different and it is difficult. Like if me writing this post was to be showcased in a movie, it would have been in a few seconds and in one go with motivational background score ending with a voice narrating the same to the viewers. But see, here you are digging through the words, wondering or probably abusing the piece of shit.

Be Real not Reel.

 

Hey there!

It’s been a long long time since I last posted here. Gives me chill seeing my previous posts and writing this one.

Not many of you would have noticed that I started writing this blog in mid March of the last year ending with the no. 4 (2014) with my last post being in ending November of the same year.

Life and premonitions never go hand in hand. Blink of an eye and the world is different.

Anyhow, while I had been on the roller coaster of life, I tried not to let my personal life cast a dark shadow over my desire to write, though the mediums and platforms changed.

From writing posts and statuses on Orkut, Facebook as a kid to pouring my teenage heart on wordpress, I went on to kickstart magazine of my own named “Eunoia” which means  beautiful thinking and a well mind. It was a college magazine and is still running in the premises though I graduated an year ago. 

A 9 to 6 job and a lover to fill my mind and heart, life had been a bit rewarding while being equally cruel. Being in and out of love enriched my experience and transitioned me to a bittersweet(amateur) poetess.

These days  its me, my poems and instagram. The moving on phase has been long and challenging. Yet I try to grow day by day from the bittersweet memories of past.

A glimpse of the poems and photographs:

 

 

Title: Quotidien Morose

It’s one past midnight

with you on the phone

Few words and a drunk snores

leaving the other voice in a sleepless mode

Maybe it’s you or just the flashbacks

When will you grow past my nostalgic mind?!

Creeping memories

Moving on thoughts

Life has become a traffic jam of quotidien morose

Dripping water yet so dry

Polluted feelings in a trapped mind

Should I try again or

just lay

wide awake in my bed all night.

 

I am hoping to continue writing here as well. But if you like my poetry, please feel free to eavesdrop 😉
