Reality in Tears

By taking off the mask, published on Aug 18, 2010

...

And with it the pain I feel right now

I know there’s no alcohol in the house

Wish I had a bottle under my pillow

Or in my closet, where I normally drink

But tonight I’ll have to be sober

Deal with the pain

Accept the hurt

Why do I get my hopes up?

All I know is I love him

Respect him

And want to spend my life with him

the ice cube finished melting

and my nose begins to run

my tongue instantly tastes the salt water

that just ran down my face

you can never understand the pain I feel

the hope I have

and the fear that haunts me

you can never understand

because you are not me

I Have My Spring With Me

By Uttam Gill, published on Nov 24, 2017

To me it appears, as if life is dancing… yes life is dancing for those who are in unrelenting mood to give up smile. Those who are not willing to smile, I beg them, to borrow smile with reasons…If they don’t have any, invent the reason….find the reason…Life cannot be wasted.

Umpteenth time the salacious moments transgressed into my life but I could always get through such turbulent phase. And now also, I know that, I don’t have to fasten my belt, I would tread through. No matter what happens, I know now that, I have the repertoire of experience and unfazed wish to take a course, which... (more)
