    Do I believe in ghosts?

    ©akshiwrites

    Of course, I do believe in them!
    In fact they are all around
    No, they don't look like scary humans
    as they show in movies

    In fact, I don't know how they look exactly
    I can just feel them deeply
    They are there in my mind
    I feel them in my insecurities
    I feel them in my anxiousness

    I feel them making me tired
    when I want to feel excited in the morning

    I feel them making me nervous
    when I want to feel confident while having a conversation

    I feel them keeping me awake all night
    when I want to have a sound sleep

    I feel them entering my body
    while I inhale oxygen
    But I don't feel them leaving my body
    while I exhale carbon dioxide
    I feel them flowing along with blood in my body

    Ironically, they don't haunt me
    They are trying to stay friends with me forever, but I just can't .

    I will definitely bid them goodbye,
    sooner or later but I will.

    Querencia

    ©akshiwrites

    What is life?
    It is a continuous hunt,
    hunt for qurencia,
    where you would feel
    yourself a little more,
    where your heart would feel secure,
    where your soul would experience tranquility

    I had set myself on this hunt too
    I was also in quest of qurencia,
    trying to search for it
    in the company of people and
    in places I felt I belonged

    Tired of trying,
    I somehow managed
    uncovering it at last
    It was right there,
    inside me

    It was in that moment
    of realization,
    I felt most secure
    and solid

    My querencia had a
    heart and a soul
    It could talk to me in a way
    nobody had before
    It could make me feel in a way
    I had never felt before

    All this while, it tried communicating
    It's just I had never been an effective listener
    But I am glad I found my querencia,
    my safe place. It was me.
    It had always been me.

    Seasons at the window sill

    Deep engrossed in life and occupied with that deadline, I sit by my desk and can't move my eyes beyond the computer screen.

    Suddenly I sense darkness in the background,
    Quizzed I lift my gaze up. Gifted with the precious corner beside a window, out of the leads gaze.

    A pearl like droplet slowly sliding down the window pane, adding little shine and glitter amongst the plain.
    Marvelled and engulfed in tracing its path, I forgot my pain.

    Like noise destroying the silence, waves destroying the footprint, the rain started to pour heavily and brought me back to my reality.

    How I adore the rains, like a pause from mundane.
    They make us ride the memory train, from joy and vain.
    From childhood games in the rain to the romantic daints,
    I smile with a deep breath from the cool breeze, sure about many more dreams.

    Oh! It's that time of the year
    when days and nights
    will be colder than hearts of
    many individuals out there

    Oh that soothing wish of ‘sweet dreams’ ,
    Got me some sound sleep somewhere .

    Now that I’m in love
    With the midnight nightmares ,
    And talking with silent walls !
