A date to remember!

image

I told him, I didn’t trust his car,
His beloved had the habit of breaking down far.
He wouldn’t listen. When it came to his black beauty,
Driving it was like his ardent duty!

And as I had warned, she did just that,
Even before we reached, she behaved like a brat.
He looked at me genuinely unaware,
And I could do nothing, but at him I stare.

He got out and talked all lovey dovey with her,
And caressed her softly, like she was covered with fur.
I sat inside and watched him, toil and sweat
I knew she would do this, I always won the bet!

He knew she wouldn’t start, “It’s not so far from here.
Let’s walk along the grass and savour the nature dear”,
He said and walked silently as I kept complaining unending,
And then I stumbled upon the rocks and all words came to ending.

My wrath turned to pain and curses, while I stared at him,
With a funny face and a naughty laugh, his smile hidden dim,
I couldn’t get up with all my bruised knees and feet,
I burned with anger and disappointment, all fire and heat!

He smiled and walked closer to me, while I punched him for such a date,
He said, it all happened because it was our fate.
And then he slowly lifted me, in those strong arms with care,
My heart suddenly was overwhelmed and with love for him, I stare!

My date with him was always a fun filled ride,
With his treacherous black beauty always by his side.
He enjoys it all along, I know, to tease me and fight
But the love between us, is always a beholding sight!

My Heart Of Glass?

Image result for sad eyes

I wonder looking through the glass,

Am I more broken or it?

Are my pieces as delicate as it lies?

Or are they as sharp edged as mine within?

Like fingers touch these shards and bleed,

Will I too hurt and bleed from within?

They may replace this glass, some day,

But what do we do with a broken heart?

Why is it made so delicate then,

When there is no replacement or a guarantee?

Don’t go!

I’m tired, lonely and exhausted,
This is not, from my life that I wanted.
Fighting the world alone,
Was not something I had known.

You promised to be by my side,
Yet left me to swim through the tide.
All alone to face my nightmares,
With no one around me who cares!

This life is empty without you in it,
With all feelings fallen and no piece a fit.
Come back to me, before the wind carries away,
The pieces of my heart, like straws of hay.

I need you, love, come back to me,
This world and its wars, whatever it be.
Don’t say, you’ll watch over like that star!
Don’t die upon me, don’t go away so far!

Don’t! Love! Oh please don’t go!
I promise, I will be around you, high or low.
I can’t, I tell you baby, I just can’t do it
I won’t be able to keep the flame of my life lit!

Me Before You – Review

Hello blogging world!

Here today, I am ready to review a book. A very, very special and tough book to review for me. You may wonder why! Read on if you want to know! I read this one a few days back but couldn’t bring myself to review it. 😐

Ever felt so helpless before the feelings rising in your heart? Ever felt incapable to hold on to the tears that well up in your eyes? Ever felt like getting into the book and asking, pleading or even begging the character to listen to you? Ever?? If not or if you did, or if you want to, then go ahead, read this book!
You might end up like me, all teary eyed and pained. And this was the reason that even after reading it earlier, I couldn’t bring myself to review it!
Yet, ask me if I would reread it or read something like that again. And my answer would be, YES!!!

The book today I am reviewing is Jojo Moyes, Me Before You.

Published in 2012, the book went on to become a bestseller. And has a sequel to it, titled After You. It is something I plan to take up when I can read on a stretch which is something I am dying for!

The story is about William Traynor (Will),  a young, rich, sporty, woman’s dream man, who is so badly hurt that he ends up as a quadriplegic after an accident. And this happy and witty guy turns into an angry, respiteful and moody man.

The story is about Louisa Clark (Lou). A young energetic yet unambitious girl. With lesser qualifications to support her, she is happy with her job. And suddenly, she loses that job. After a lot of hunting jobs she lands up with one, of taking care of a quadriplegic, our Will. A job for six months only.

His mother, Camilla Traynor is trying her best to keep her senses and herself strong to do what he wants to do. His father and sister just add on as the people who are around him yet so far.

The other characters like Treena, Louisa’s sister, her parents and the relationships she shares with them, make the story more beautiful. And our Lou has her own haunting past.

Now, Will has his own heartbreaks. His own dreams, now shattered. His own issues, which he is unable to accept. And there is only one goal in his life? What?

What scares Lou? What is her life all about? What is it that she wants from her life?

Well I ain’t giving any spoilers here. 😁

Does Louisa manage to change Will’s outlook to life? Does Lou change her outlook towards life? What was her past about? What is Will’s goal? What happens in the six months of her job with Will?

All answers lie in those pages of the book.

I am giving this book 5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟. If I could give more out of 5, I would have done so. I loved the book!!
If you are a romance reader, if you like emotional and tear-jerking kind of books, then I believe you too will like it a lot.

My reaction to it, you ask? Well, I read this book, specially half of it, while I was alone. And I cried. I cried so much, that my nose turned red, my eyes would not stop flowing, I got pain in my chest. I kept messaging back to my friend who mailed me the book. I kept threatening that person. I kept scolding for sending me such an emotional one. I kept crying while I told that I hated that person for making me cry and then I thanked for giving me such a beautiful book to read! Man!! How confused I was that day! You should ask that friend of mine!

Some beautiful lines from the book:

There are so many of them. But I don’t want to reveal anything through them. So not sharing here.

Read it. And when you do, please let me know what’s your opinion! 🙂 I hope I have been fair enough.

Thanks for reading!

Happy reading,
                 writing,
                         blogging and
                                 living!
With love and best wishes to all!

Tell me!

image

I look at her, stealing glances
She smiles innocently, as though uncaring
And those eyes sparkle, with hidden naughtiness
That freckled pale skin blushing away to pink.

She looks at me, as though waiting
As if she knows within I am struggling
To open my heart to her for once
And tell her those feelings for her I’ve embedded.

The blood races in my veins as I gather courage
I step close to her with firm resolve
Yet when I just look into those eyes,
I forget the words I had till now rehearsed.

******************************************

I see those eyes stop at me and give
Some message unspoken by lips
They seem to tell some underlying secret
Which his lips don’t want to reveal.

What stops him, I don’t know
What he wants to say, I am dying to hear
His quivering lips, his uncertain steps
His hesitant steps and dimpled smile

They all tell me another story
Is it what my heart has heard from his?
Is this love that is unfolding between us?
Will he tell me or will I keep waiting forever!

Why not me!

image

I keep waiting everyday
While I am the lone one left
When no one comes to pick me
For hours after school.

In solitude and sadness I look
At those gleeful faces of other children
And those opened arms of mothers
In which they rush and fall
And are kissed and cuddled
But not me, oh no, not me!

I’m left in despair, with no one
But to hug and cajole myself
No caring embraces nor any ruffling
Of my disheveled hair.

When nearly all have left,
A car screeches in front of the gate
It stops and I know what to expect
I know no one waits in there for me.

I walk towards the car
a long and expensive one
But why don’t I feel happy?
Why don’t I feel rich?

My heart tells me, everyday,
I need my mom and dad
Not the driver to welcome me
In the car, while he drives me home!
