Smiles and tears...

If I can see pain in your eyes then share with me your tears. If I can see joy in your eyes then share with me your smile. 
--Santosh Kalwar

An artist's job...

The artist's job is not to succumb to despair but to find an antidote for the emptiness of existence.      
Woody Allen

Destroy you...

Every moment those cold fingers of you touches my skin in these rainy nights, they lit fire to my soul a bit at a time. These moments make me crave to be destroyed, even more. In the end, when my whole soul is engulfed in the fire that you have started, I want to pull you into my arms and destroy you too, in every breathtaking way that exists.

I am your mother...

“To my beautiful daughter, always remember: you are brave, you are capable, you are pretty, and you can accomplish ANYTHING your heart desires! I know this because I am your mother.”

Always... Never...

To some people, you will never be enough.
To others, you always were.

Accept that...

Accept that people leave, hearts break, friendships end, love vanishes, memories fade away and life goes on with empty feelings, sad smiles and broken souls.

A kiss...

A kiss can be a comma, a question mark or an exclamation point. That's basic spelling that every woman ought to know.

Open the door...

       Perhaps the only reason why you worry in life, tarry your goals and bury your joy is that you are still bearing the untold story of you untouched, which seems to bang on the doors of your heart every time! Go and open the way, and fulfill your destiny!
Israelmore Ayivor, Daily Drive 365

       The law of karma states unequivocally that though we cannot see the connections, we can be sure that everything that happens to us, good and bad, originated once in something we did or thought. We ourselves are responsible for what happens to us, whether or not we can understand how. It follows that we can change what happens to us by changing ourselves; we can take our destiny into our own hands.
Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

Whatever we are waiting for - peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance - it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.
 Sarah Ban Breathnach

Something sacred...

Consciousness expresses itself through creation. This world we live in is the dance of the creator. Dancers come and go in the twinkling of an eye but the dance lives on. On many an occasion when I am dancing, I have felt touched by something sacred. In those moments, I felt my spirit soar and become one with everything that exists.”
Michael Jackson

Never let go...

        Hope is a beautiful and magical thing. Grasp it tight, monsieur, and never let go.
Rachel L. Demeter,

Not my lips...

For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.
Judy Garland


        Then there are my Somewheres. We all need somewhere to say the private things, the vulnerable things, the scary and true things, the victories and the defeats. "I need to say it somewhere," we say. So then the temptation is to say everything, everywhere, or we end up saying nothing, nowhere. There's something between oversharing or undersharing our real lives. I have learned--slowly, painfully--to say these private things to my Somewheres.

Being naked...

It’s easy to take off your clothes and have sex. People do it all the time. But opening up your soul to someone, letting them into your spirit, thoughts, fears, future, hopes, dreams… that is being naked.
Rob Bell

You'll beg...

I'm not a cigarette that you'll smoke and crush.
I am a drug baby...You'll beg for me.

If only...

If only our eyes saw souls instead of bodies, how different our ideals of beauty would be.”

.       Dusk is just an illusion because the sun is either above the horizon or below it. And that means that day and night are linked in a way that few things are there cannot be one without the other yet they cannot exist at the same time. How would it feel I remember wondering to be always together yet forever apart?
Nicholas Sparks

Meeting point...


...and you will hold me with your wondering eyes in the serenity of purest mind at the dreams edge of my quiet golden shores accompanied by the melodies of emerald blue rippling waves where I will always remain voicing harmony in the over the rainbow soothing memories of your heart...
Oksana Rus

        I watch her as she leaves. Everything about her is fluid as a river. Her messy hair, her xylophone voice, the strokes of her paintbrush. Even her camouflage army jacket hangs loose, flowing like ribbons.
Lisa Ann Sandell, A Map of the Known World

Slipping away...

Looking out at the ocean, it's easy to feel small - and to imagine all your troubles, suddenly insignificant, slipping away. Earth's seven oceans seem vast and impenetrable, but a closer look tells another story. 
Ted Danson

Red peppers...

We run crazy after things that are like the red peppers, — pretty outside, but hot as fire when we get to playing with them. Our lesson is right hard. But a punishment sin brings with it is remembered longer than a hundred warnings. God doesn’t push us towards hot peppers — He lets us alone, but we are mighty apt to run to Him after we’ve got a fair taste. 
~Marion Harland (Mary Virginia Terhune), Alone, 1857  [A little altered. –tg]

Painful tears...

“The most painful tears are not the ones that fall from your eyes and cover your face. They're the ones that fall from your heart and cover your soul.”

They broke...

"They broke the wrong parts of me. They broke my wings and forgot I had claws." — Anonymous

Near and far...

He who lives in our mind is near though he may actually be far away; but he who is not in our heart is far though he may really be nearby.

It's the way...

You can be covered and be very sexy. It's not what you show; it's what you have in mind, the way you cross your legs, the way you talk to people.

Chogada Taara....

Chogada taara
I’m your lover
Chabila taara
Your beloved
Rangila taara
I’m the color of your life
Rangbheru juye teri vaat re.... Haan..
All the words you speak are full of shades of love


Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer. 
William S. Burroughs

In the bottom of my heart lies a secret which I have never told a soul in the world. There is an image of this person who is dearest to me and closer than anything else. 
Melanie Rock

Some dance to remember...

Her mind is Tiffany-twisted
She got the Mercedes Benz
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys
She calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard
Sweet summer sweat
Some dance to remember
Some dance to forget...

-Hotel California.

Make them feel...


I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. 
Maya Angelou

   She look’d down to blush, and she look’d up to sigh, 
   With a smile on her lips and a tear in her eye.

Strong women...

Strong women wear their pain like stilettos. No matter how much it hurts, all you see is the beauty of it.

Eyes spoke...

        It was the eyes. The secret of love was in the eyes. The way one person looked at another, the way eyes communicated and spoke when the lips never moved.
V.C. Andrews


Teach your daughters to worry less about fitting into glass slippers and more into shattering glass ceilings...


It's not the feeling of completeness I need, but the feeling of not being empty.      
Jonathan Safran Foer

But it won't...

I write for those women who do not speak, for those who do not have a voice because they were so terrified, because we are taught to respect fear more than ourselves. We've been taught that silence would save us, but it won't. 
Audre Lorde


Absence in love is like water upon fire; a little quickens, but much extinguishes it.
Hanna More

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. 
Lao Tzu


He who gives away shall have real gain. He who subdues himself shall be free; he shall cease to be a slave of passions. The righteous man casts off evil, and by rooting out lust, bitterness, and illusion do we reach Nirvana.

Can you???

I wonder can you see the sadness behind my eyes? When you see my smile, do you know what I hide behind it? When you hear me laugh, do you know what Im really thinking? When you hear me sing, do you really hear the meaning? When I touch you, can you feel my pain?

Listen to her eyes...

When a woman is talking to you, listen to what she says with her eyes. 
Victor Hugo

Endless song...

Nature is ever at work building and pulling down, creating and destroying, keeping everything whirling and flowing, allowing no rest but in rhythmical motion, chasing everything in endless song out of one beautiful form into another. 
John Muir

The power...

Every human has four endowments - self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom... The power to choose, to respond, to change. 
Stephen Covey

       The problem with heartbreak is that nobody can help you when you're heartbroken. Nobody and nothing. Not the films you watch alone desperately searching for a character who feels the way you do, not the glasses or bottles of whisky you keep by your bed and certainly not Instagram.

The balance..

        Somehow, we'll find it. The balance between whom we wish to be and whom we need to be. But for now, we simply have to be satisfied with who we are.
