For The Love Of What Matters

swimming through
Some times you just cannot finish any sentence you start. Everything forms a swirl in your mind and you let go of each string one by one because holding on is just too much. Even if you try to close your eyes and leave out the cold insincerity of those who do not love you back your lashes shiver in the wind. Things lose their shades and become grades of grey instead. You try to swim through, kicking and screaming and all you face is a swill of smoke. There is no escaping, there is no explaining; your voice is unheard and you are silent to them. Even in the cold rejection you know that it no longer matters that your words are meaningless to them; you have courage, you have resilience, you are not dying today even if they make your smile falter in its way.
See your own reflection and recognise yourself because that's all that matters

  2. This is such a nice line: you are not dying today even if they make your smile falter in its way

    I love how the pictures you've chosen go so well with the poetry. They both have this beautiful eeriness that is very effective.

    Very gorgeous blog.

  6. Hey Dibiparna! We are in loovvve with your blog! and already following it! ;-)
    This is such a lovely post. You said it right - despite all the rejection we face we have to have the courage to be there for ourselves, to be our own strongest support.
    You've put down your thoughts so well. :)

  7. Beautifully written Debi! I love the last line "See your own reflection and recognise yourself because that's all that matters." and no matter how difficult, we have to swim through!
    Btw, I'm from Calcutta too! I'm just always so excited to meet bloggers from Calcutta! *waves*
