    When love was packing it's bags,
    To leave my heart empty
    I knew Hollowness will
    Be a good tenant.
    It had been waiting so long
    To occupy my heart
    And give me company
    In days filled with pain.

    If you remember me,
    then I don't care if
    everyone else forgets.

    - Haruki Murakami, 
    Kafka on the Shore.

    Life seems so short
    That one desires to
    Live recklessly.
    But life is also so long
    That if you do not plan
    Your years ahead, You get lost.
    Life goes by you
    Silently like a river,
    But at moments, Engulfs you
    Like a thirsty tornado
    Picking you from somewhere
    And leaving you somewhere else.
    And sometimes it floods
    You house and drowns
    Your woolen covers
    Leaving you with a pile of mess.
    Heavy and sad.

    We will never give up. After all we have been through, we will never.

    Last year when you left us all, for the first time i came home and you weren't there on the platform waiting for me. You took my childhood with you and i know i will never be the same. But life is moving ahead, and it hasn't been easy to write this.

    I hope, i just hope there is something beyond this. I hope when my time comes, you will be at the other end. That you will hug your little girl, and tell her you are proud of how brave she has been.
    I love you Papa.
    I miss you every day.

    Dear Papa,

    A recurring fear of my childhood was losing the sight of you in a crowd. Everytime we travelled by train, you got down at stations and only jumped in at the last moment. It made my little heart anxious. I did not know what we would do without you. Without you, we would be lost.

    When at 17, i came back home alone for the first time from Delhi, you told me you were proud of how brave i was. You were happy i was becoming self-dependent. But you would always receive me on the station, and also drop me when i had to go back.

    Those curses were not yours, child
    They were ours.
    You were not born
    Branded with destiny's iron
    Under the wrath of stars.
    We saw violence, silent and loud,
    Hidden inside the curtains of love,
    All tears had to be washed away,
    All cries had to be muffled,
    Because gratitude.
    Generational curses fell
    Upon our heads,
    And those plights were not yours,
    Child, you were born after the
    Storm died.
    You were born to live,
    We were born to survive.

    April is the cruelest month, breeding
    lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
    memory and desire, stirring
    dull roots with spring rain.

    T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land

    I can fake a smile
    I can force a laugh
    I can dance and play the part
    I can do it
    I can do it
    I can do it.
    But I’m only human
    And I bleed when I fall down
    I’m only human
    And I crash and I break down...

    - Human, Christina Perri

    If I loved you less,
    I might be able to
    talk about it more.
