Journeys..

A moment of revelation,
She saw through the mask,
Sand castles crumbled,
The wave of realization brought in a flood of dark.
Laughter turned into cacophony,
Betrayal at every step and turn,
Companions departed,she sat and mourned.

Clouds of Melancholy cast a gloom so dense,
Pained she cocooned, shut doors to cleanse.
Yet blessings made way through little cracks
The torch bearers-they gave her love and light,
From cradle to the journey so far,
Infuse in her manifold might.

Shaken faith, bitter memories,
She tried to walk away but the good souls refused to leave her side,
Held on till she found the strength to further stride,
Lady luck-Beautiful and kind,
Gifted her with some peace of mind,
She rose in the glory of her awakening
With new rigor and zest for life
The year that went past made her real and alive.

Cotton Clouds...

Tired of the daily sickening rut
This rat race killing the purity of gut
Give me time to soak in vibes of peace
Let things move with some more ease
The wind in my hair-sunshine on my face,
Give me moments to experience and embrace.

Was I born to run after green
Or is my purpose a higher serene
Burning away the cerebral passion in me,
This withering is something naked eyes cant see.

My soul crawling, wailing, begging for solace
To stop the sprint and liberate into space
This life-the yearnings, the mirage, greys and misinterpreted purpose
Bartered the arbit colors in return of bland morose
Desperate attempts to keep sanity
Yet driven to live a conformed life of vanity
Stop me from erasing my wholesome beauty
Break these shackles of mundane cruelty

I chase the winds that tell me stories
I transcend to planes that awaken the glories
The overwhelming burst of brightness galore
Let's float away in cotton clouds of amour...

On Gameover.com

Been too long that I've written something.

Maybe a year.

And this one year, has been a tsunami of changes. The Mr.Right I kept writing about is Mr.Husband now. His Mr.Right title now has a prefix to it, Once upon a time.

You know how puppies chew off everything when they are teething? The first year of marriage is similar, you tend to chew off each others brains for every small thing possible- teething problems in marriage. War zone! Husband versus wife!

Suddenly, messy me has found a messier person in the house. I can't believe that "I" have fights over clothes randomly strewn in the room or shoes thrown carelessly on the floor. There was a time my own room was a mini fish market, piles of clothes on the bed and me fitting in a corner somehow making place to sleep. The younger me, in a parallel universe must be smirking at my new Avataar.. :-O

Is it possible that the ceremonies during marriage, have a secret ritual to cast a spell on the bride and groom? Is it possible?Say!!! Maybe, there is a mantra that is chanted to make us control freaks, psychos- everything we never wanted to be!!! :-o

There was a time I wouldn't start my day without playing music! Now I start my day in the kitchen following the maid around like a scout. Everybody who has been married for over 3 months would know what a critical role maids play in a woman's life post-marriage.

Our conversations majorly constitute of lines like, "My maid was late again" "My maid is such a bully that I feel scared to ask her to do even a little bit of extra work" "My maid skipped coming to work today" "My maid...my maid....my maid" . 
Can you believe what my maid asked me the other day? "Maaaa (A way to address ladies in south), Main aaj thoda nahaa lun kya aapke ghar pe? Paaaaani nai aata mere ghar mein" (Read: Can I take bath in your house there is no water in mine." ) (Aiyoooo.... How on earth does one react to this?! )
Another friend of mine, has an Alpha maid. She insisted that the young couple buy a house and she gives them loan for the down-payment! :-o

The new-age maids are intimidating for newbies in the domestic world.

Sigh.

For those of you who think marriage doesn't sound appealing-don't be disheartened. There are good things like having a friend cum lover-forever in marriage. Arms to carry you when you're down and lots of little cheesy things. Marriage makes life brighter in indescribable ways!

In fact- Marriage is incredible!

It turns you into 'Mrs.Always Right' for 'Once upon a time-Mr.Right' .
