Wounded Heart

Hey, listen -
You've now made me melt
Until this moment, I was never felt
So rock solid I had been
Never such a thing was ever seen

I was once burdened by emotions so heavy
You were tainted by fake promises and lies
They came like unstoppable swords and stabbed me
Leaving us broken for the rest of our lives

Have you forgotten?
You were left dying all alone
For reasons being unknown
They showed only their cowardice
Of running away without justice

Don't worry -
Although the scars have still remained
I have healed myself over time
To fight pain, I stand firm again
Backed with strength up front in line

All I ask of you -
Don't make that same mistake
We can't fall apart yet again
Know the truth before its too late
That dreadful suffering, I can't endure again

Right Ho, Jeeves

I longed to read comedy in literature and this book was the right choice. This is a satire which left me giggling from time to time. A romantic comedy driven by subtle thoughts involving Jeeves and Bertram Wooster and few other characters. Bertie's pride of being a Wooster always makes him devise ridiculous schemes to resolve issues which often end up as failures. Then finally Jeeves comes to the rescue and saves the day.

What tickled me the most are the insults by Bertie's aunt on him although he is very dear to her. They are  peculiar and I may call it - insulting in the Elizabethan way. Not to forget, the phrase Jeeves uses very often "Indeed, Sir?" with an unusual elastic stretch to it made me imagine the tone of his voice. The characterization of Gussie and Tuppy along with their love interests are also perfectly defined. Lastly, I read a lot of "Right-ho"s and "What-ho"s in the book which are new to me. They sound interesting. I like to use them in my day-to-day life. They have a different air to it. Reading this book was total fun and entertains every reader who likes classic British humor.

Toxic Love

Toxic Love

Roses are red, violets are blue
Pretty when they're young
But far away from truth

When needs start to grow
The tongue tastes sour
True colours begin to show

Deeply immersed in emotion
Everything else appears invisible
Breakdown is thus, inevitable

As expectations rise high
Minds are lost in dreams
Reality is eroded in eyes

When inseparables separate
Isolation - just can't tolerate
Causing irreparable damage

Obsession takes control
All dear ones are ignored
Life begins to take its toll

Deserted in loneliness
Miserable pain follows
Gloomy days of blindness
