    They met to collide in the hide..

    Breathing was possible..
    Words just humble.

    He for whom you’re running
    will continue haunting you
    in different forms

    To confront you
    with your fears

    But don’t be scared
    Understand that you are your fears
    Face them, listen to them, thank them
    and let them tramsform in bravery and good stories

    My Love For You

    My love for you is stronger than iron and steel, more vivid than the nightmares that haunt my sleep, and more lively than the nature that resides outside my window.

    Those silent tears
    Those quiet lips
    That silent room
    And those thoughts in my mind
    Haunting me every single day and night

    Suppressed thoughts of the day,
    Haunt her in the silence of the darkness.

    Next Hunt

    Those dreams keep haunting
    Tried to run away from one ghost
    Ended up finding another
    Where have I brought myself?
    These rooms
    All look familiar
    Just the faces change
    I have been running for so long
    It hurts
    But can't seem to stop
    Just seem to find more ghosts to run away from
    They seem so scary yet so attractive
    Where am I going?
    This dilemma kills me
    Those faces so beautiful and peaceful yet so painful
    Here I am
    A new ghost

    I am still awestruck,
    By the naughty, cocky,
    Innocent and very momentary Smile.
    It brought along,
    Eyes brimming with mirth and glee.
    Shyness peeped through, the lowered eyelids.
    The Pompous white, radiating and mocking.

    Oh! How I long for that delightful sight.
    The ticking plays its part,
    Fast paced, shrinking all.
    The contours and lines,
    Talk of the journey so far.
    Yet again, memories are,
    Indelible and timeless.
    So in the realms of thoughts, that smile again,
    Fills me, with awe.

    I have a wound. It's very old.
    But its still new. It won't just heal.
    I won't put the medicine on.

    It hurts, all the time.
    I act like I don't mind.
    But I won't put the medicine on it.

    I have a wound. It still looks red.
    Spills out that blood. Bright red.
    But I won't put the medicine on it.

    I have this wound. It's getting too big.
    It never gets tricked. It tricks.
    But I won't put the medicine on it.

    This wound shall soon consume me
    and I'll end up dead.
    But I wouldn't put that medicine on it.

    Now if you might ask, why would l
    do such a fruitless act?
    Then I might tell you, its me who created this wound.Its a self-inflicted june.

    To call that one. The one who won't come.
    One who got lost, in the mist of the past.

    But that one still exists somewhere.
    Of that I know very well.

    When shall that one get out of that well?
    Only then shall the medicine work. Or else if I shall lose even this wound.Then tell me,what would be really left?

    Last question....

    "Are you ready for the last question,Mr.Void"

    "Yes! I am" I said in irritating manner

    Mr.Reaper don't you get bored by using same dialogue,
    "Are you ready for next question,Mr.Void" (wowowowoooo)
    you should write down some new lines and dialogue ...
    May I give you a advise..you should watch KBC..and learn from Amitabh Bacchan....
    ...Mr..Reaper, you really need that....." I said with a laughing.

    "Mr.Void,you trying to be funny but trust me,you are not funny at all.
    And just for the record ,I try to be simple and also I am not hosting a show.."
    He said in cold serious voice.

    "Ok, Sorry! A flop joke ,I am just trying to be funny after lot of serious talk...so...I thought that it is necessary...well...
    ....what is the next question..you told me it is boring..
    hope it is simple one.." again I said in funny sound.

    "Ok,Mr.Void,it is a simple question or I should say questions, What do you want?
    And What will you do after resurrection?"
    He asked me.

    "Hmmm! Really!You want to know that,I have told about it to death..you could ask him..
    ..it is really a boring question
    and well first is more boring.."
    I said him making a weird face.

    "Mr.Void,it was before you faced me...or...
    I think I should say faced yourself...
    I want to know again,what is in your mind now.
    Mr.Void this your last question and don't think you will feel enjoyed if you don't get resurrection reaching this near
    and did you forget about our schemes,there are plenty of them left " He said like he was enjoying it.

    "Ok ! No schemes....I will tell you ....
    (..I will kill you..son of **....) " ,I muttered.

    "What ,Mr.Void ?" He exclaimed and asked..

    "Nothing..... just saying I will tell you ..
    Honestly , I don't know what I want and ....
    I have no idea what will I do with it.. really i don't have any idea...."I told him

    "If you don't have any idea ,Mr.Void
    why you want another chance, just to make same mistakes and hurt more people around you.
    Do you think you can bring something good out of it"

    I start telling him
    "No,I know there is risk that people could get hurt..
    And but I am trusting my guts on this...maybe ....
    I could bring something good out of it..
    Maybe I could do something right...
    I don't know where life would lead me...
    I don't say that I will not try to find my love again...
    Or I don't know if I will walk alone this time with numb heart...
    I don't say I will forget every memory voice...
    I don't say ...that... people will not be hurted by me...
    There will always be a danger.... but...
    ...I want to play this game for one more time...
    ...I want to believe myself....for one more time...
    ..maybe I can't fit anywhere .....I know I can't correct every mess...I have created
    I know I can't take back the pain people get due to me......
    ..but I can apply salve on their wounds......
    I can build the town of my life again..
    I can face my nightmare this time ....
    I can think about others ...this time rather than me...
    I could help others......I can prove that I am not rich man's gold lover....
    I can move forward from immaturity to achieve maturity.....
    I just want to do things in right way this time....
    I want to fill people around me...with happiness..and..
    .....and..... with.......you know....with glory.....

    I have a dream lot of them....and...I know....that.... somewhere...maybe....if I say....practically all can't become true...but one dream I want to fulfill even just for one time ...I want to say my family do what you want to do...you want to buy something .....buy ....
    You want to eat....eat anything you want....
    You want to visit places say the name....
    ... everything will on me...
    Just for that i want resurrection..
    Because I can't do it with present way.... the hopes have already broken ....I want new hopes to blossom in the dessert.....I know it's difficult .... But even cactus bear flowers....
    This is all I want to say....." I ended my words with eyes filled with tears.

    "Very Well,Mr.Void", Reaper said with a serious look on his face.

    Reaper :
    So, coming to our next level, your teen phase,Mr.Void
    Why don't you make friends?
    Why you are so mean and selfish?

    Me :
    I don't believe you are asking me that.
    Yes,I don't need any homie or any bestie or any friends..
    I don't need them..and
    Also, I don't trust anyone..
    And yeah, you could say that I am selfish and mean..

    Reaper :
    Really! But you have done sacrifices and many things in friendships..
    Once you even take your friend's blame on you...why...."

    Me :
    No, I didn't done that ,I mean I did..but..
    I did that because it was necessary..
    And sometimes I was debted of some acts done by so called friend..so I do that ..so that I can remove my debt...
    Simple maths.."

    Reaper :
    Ok! Why you always try to make people laugh...
    Why you treat them in very good manner?
    Why you try to share their sadness and
    Why don't share their happiness?

    Me :
    "I do what is necessary,I don't do anything because I want something ..
    I just do it..what I feel right...
    I just wanted to distract myself sometimes ...so I do these things....
    and also,I am not that much good in relationships...
    .....like friendships
    ....you remember that I accidentally called a girl fake ...in joke and I forgot her name?

    Reaper :
    "Yeah! You feel guilty about it...
    But why you felt that...when you know it was like an experiment...."

    Me :
    "Why are you lying to yourself,Mr.Void?
    Why don't you accept that you need someone as friend to share your thoughts, your feelings..
    How long will you keep talking to yourself..
    Crying and laughing without reasons.."

    Me :
    I don't want anyone ,I am my best friend..
    Yes,I talk to myself and even cry and laugh..
    Because I feel good and why need friends...
    You never know when they break your trust...
    When they will leave you..
    I don't want anyone sympathies...
    And I don't want any weaknesses..
    I already have many......

    ....I just wanted to left alone..I felt more focused
    And I felt more stronger when I am numb..
    I wanted to remain broken because pain is my drug now...."

    Reaper :
    But, how long will it go...
    Tell me..why don't you find someone with whom you could share your feelings..how long you will befriend
    with paintbrush and pen and with songs..tell me.."

    Me :
    Hmm.as long I am alive..
    Maybe you are right I should find someone
    And you know that I tried that several times...
    And you know what I get ... failures..or ..
    ...you could..say.. nothing...
    I don't say I am alone ,there are many like me .......
    ....some even worse than me....
    .... but for clapping you need both hands ....
    ... you can't talk only about yourself..
    When I wanted to talk about them...
    you know what they say....it breaches their privacy
    ....maybe.. sometimes secrets should be remain secret but why force other about the same thing when you can't share your feelings....
    ..But I admit that I still have hope that I will find someone....I will try to take a chance..."

    "And you should Mr.Void",he said and I know this question ended...

    Reaper :
    So,here your next question Mr.Void
    Why did you beat your brother?

    Me :
    Hahaha! Every brother even sisters fights .
    It's part of relationships

    "Yes! It is.
    But Mr.Void,they don't fight to kill..
    And you know ,what I am talking about.
    You beat him that he choked out,"

    He screamed"Why, Mr.Void"

    I said in loud voice
    "I didn't beat him ,
    Yes,I mean I did,but I never meant to choke him.
    It was an accident ..I just lose control.."

    In an anger voice he brought his face near me and looked into my eye and said,

    "You lose control or wanted to lose control.
    Look at me,Mr.Void..Why you did that ..
    Answer me..
    Say you wanted to kill him..
    Say,You are a disappointment..Say it !"

    I rejected with anger
    "No! I am not."

    He laughed and said
    "Yes! You are ,Mr.Void..".

    My eyes filled with tears and shame,

    "No..I am not .." I said in crying voice
    Yes ,I beat him because he was making same mistakes like me..and it was worse than me..he can't control himself like me...
    I thought....I thought ..I saw my father in him..
    I thought I would lose him...he disrespected mother
    Maybe,I wanted to put my responsibilities on his shoulder..and I felt disappointed ....
    ..I felt that I am not a good elder brother...and..
    I am not a good son....I got so angry ...that I spill my
    magma on him...
    But I never meant to ..i never meant to choke him..
    I still felt guilty ..I wanted to apologize..
    But...my ego hold me back..
    ..I can't lose anyone.....not now..I am not ready for that....not yet..
    I am not that much strong..
    My mother cried several times due to me...
    It kills me .. believe me..it does..
    I can't see the same thing happening again when the reason is my brother...
    I hate myself.....for the mistakes I have done..
    I don't know why.....why , everytime I wanted to do something right..I end up with destruction.."
    Why even I was born ...I wish I would have never born... it's becoming difficult for me to take anymore....I am losing myself..I am.. in real..."

    "So, you admit that it is your mistake.."He said with smile

    "Yes! It is..." I spill the words after drinking my tears..

    Haunting Accepted ..

    I don't want to tell him but I started cold hearted.

    Me :
    It was night like all others,
    Mom,was sleeping in other room, because
    Of my brother ,and I wake up and went to
    other room,I don't remember what was reason!
    My father was in that room..
    So,I didn't go inside ...
    I was just standing outside room near door..
    I peeped inside..
    He was doing something I don't know what...
    I was just 4 years old,so I thought maybe he is making something to play...
    He was holding my mother scarf..
    I don't know why he wrapped around his neck and other end to fan hanging on roof...
    I was feeling sleepy and scared..so I went back to room where my mother was sleeping....
    and I slept...

    When I wake up ..everybody was crying ...
    they were hugging me and some gave me sweets to eat ....
    There was lot of crowd .....
    Everybody was talking then I saw mother she was crying ......loudly...I had never seen her like that....
    I went near to her and ask her why is she crying?
    I told her that I will give her choclate if she stop crying... (Hihhiheehe)
    And she said nothing ..she is just feeling pain...
    And then some people came ...they are big ,
    A person said police is here ...
    They go to inside my father room ...
    I wanted to go inside but my maternal uncle
    hold my hand and asked me if I wanted chocolates
    And ice-cream....
    I said yes ..and he took me to market..I don't remember if he gave me Chocolates or not(hhhahhaahh)

    And I don't even remember if I saw his cremation...
    ......or not..
    But i just remember when I returned home everybody was gone ..
    My maternal grandfather was there ..he was looking sad...I just remember they were packing and going somewhere...
    I asked my maternal uncle "where we are going .."
    They told me that we are going home
    I was very happy .....
    I asked will father come with us ..
    He said
    "Of course..he will but after some days.."
    He was a businessman..so he mostly
    come late to home... almost for everything..
    So,I went home....but me and my brother was waiting for him..
    We asked several times but the same answer
    "He is busy..but he will come..one day.."
    Days passed then years passed waiting my father
    I turned 7 from 4 but no sign of father..
    My classmates and teachers asked about my father
    I don't know what should I say...
    So..I start making stories..
    That he is a businessman ..he work very far..
    He come sometimes and he gives me lot of Chocolates and candies..
    He bring me toys..
    Sometimes I say he is in army..
    I don't know what to say,
    So... I..I...just
    Say anything that comes in my mind..
    This kept going on till I find a letter ...
    One day..
    ..when mother went to somewhere I was alone at home..and I was searching something to eat..
    (Haahaa) I found a letter ...
    all I understand from that...
    my father is dead..then I joined every link..
    Trust me ..kids are really intelligent than they seem..
    So my father was dead..then I know that he was not making something to play ..but he was making it to suicide...
    I didn't have strength to ask about this from my mother..
    I haven't ask about it till this date....
    I was changed that day..I could see the pain
    in my mother ..hopes ..
    struggle.... disguise to be fine
    It felt like I was broken ....I can't make friends ..
    I engulfed myself ....I felt like volcano..

    I asked everyday why I didn't go inside the room..
    I could stop him...maybe he could change his mind..
    Every time I close my eyes..that night become alive in front of my eyes..
    I know I sound crazy,I pitched my life like
    pretending I am happy... that I don't care ..
    Not a day passed when I didn't think about it..
    I thought i could make it my inspiration...
    But...........I don't know...... how...
    and when it ......turned into nightmare....
    It ripped me apart everyday......I tried to forget it
    And start again...but ....I can't ....
    The marks only get stronger....
    I lived my life in taking revenge ...
    But i know that this fire burn me from inside.."

    Reaper :
    Mr.Void why you want to forget it?

    I screamed in anger ,
    "You are asking me that why ....wow..(hhhhwhh..!)
    I am insane ,wierd ,and everything I am now is
    due to this nightmare......!"

    Reaper :
    "Yes! You are right..
    But think what if your father was alive,what would have happened?
    You could be a playboy,you could be some spoil guy!
    See yourself Mr.Void,
    Who you are now?
    You respect girls,you treat people in a better way, because you try to understand their situation,
    You opened yourself to understand life
    You understand the value of sacrifice...

    Me :
    "Hmm! Yeah you right..but..I have done mistake...
    ...lot of ...mistakes"

    Reaper :
    "Yes!of course you did
    That's why we are talking
    But you have to accept that it's your part of
    life and you can't forget it...
    You can only embrace it.....Mr.Void."

    Me :
    "I am getting, what you are telling me?
    I have to accept that night and
    I will ......."

    Reaper :
    "That is the point of this session,Mr.Void.
    Are you ready for next question?"

    I said in irritating manner "like I have a choice.."

    In The Twilight

    The wind howls,
    The lush trees scratch at the window,
    Quick, Quick,
    In a flash I turn,

    A ghostly figure,
    Pale and transparent,
    Stands in the twilight
    apon the carpet,
    A handsome face,
    A warm smile,

    My love is here.

    I fell in love with chaos. She was a beautiful mess that simply didn't know how haunting she was.

    are you death ?

    are you death ?
    are you death ?

    who are you,
    tiny voice inside my head
    you are who ?
    shiny choices 'round my neck

    so, are you
    noises i haven't bled

    so, slow and blue
    are you ?

    who are you ?
    the pain i haven't wept
    you are who,
    the pieces i never kept ?

    who are you,
    i dont think we've ever met

    so, low and new
    how are you ?

    so hard to forget

    so, clear and true
    why are you ?

    so far to regret

    now it's in me too
    so sharp to cut me through

    so, near and few
    shards, sharks and you

    who are you,
    tiny voice inside my head
    you are who ?
    shiny choices 'round my neck

    who are you ?
    why me, it's a riot in my head
    you are who ?
    screaming voices 'round my neck

    so, are you still dreaming,
    and nobody has found you yet ?

    who are you,
    are you death ?
    inside my head,
    inside my heart,
    outside ripping me apart
    are you death ?

    so, are you
    the ghosts i haven't met ?

    what is true,
    why do i see
    the sun set ?

    so, are you ?
    the one who sets me free ?

    if i count to three,
    and close my eyes,
    would you still be here,
    with me ?

    why don't you die,
    are you death ?
    are you death ?

    now it's in me too
    so sharp to cut me through

    so, slow and blues
    are you ?

    who are you ?
    the pain i haven't wept
    you are who,
    the pieces i never kept ?

    what are you,
    are you death ?
    are you death ?
