And then.

And then there was someone,
A friend, an acquaintance,
seeps into the corner of her very soul.

So slowly and surely,
groping in the darkness,
witnessing dark crevices,
longing eyes,
confused mind,
Heart entwined.

She said, screaming into the night,
sending a chill down in that someone’s spine.
Sometimes in the middle of it all,
Sometimes not at all,
Sometimes she reach out,
And at others she need to be found.

Then, that someone made her realize,
I see you made of the same element as I am.
I see you in your reality and mine.
People happen,
People leave,
Let it hurt,
Let it bleed,
Let it heal,
Let it go.
Never to cry for someone,
who doesn’t make you feel.
So hold on…
Without regretting on tears,
Let me distract you for a meanwhile.

Keep looking at the part of room,
where light enters in.
You will be reminded again and again,
no matter,
What happens..
These shadows,
Can never hold you in.

Life is a tough teacher,
We protest like an obstinate child.
But you know what,
This is how life goes by.

So, to her dear friend ever,
Thank you for making her feel better.

  1. Good afternoon Bff♥️
    I hope you doing good!

    I am really late I know.
    It’s been two days we haven’t talked.
    We’ll talk about it later.
    First let me see this-

    Anushka I read this 1 hour after you posted it. But as usual I am very lazy to comment.
    But here I am to tell you how much I loved it.
    I really enjoyed reading it. There is so much inspiration hidden in between the lines.

    The last 2nd stanza is my super favorite, I agree to what’s said!

    Then my favorite lines were
    “People happen,
    People leave,
    Let it hurt,
    Let it bleed,
    Let it heal,
    Let it go.
    Never to cry for someone,
    who doesn’t make you feel.”

    I wish it was easy to accept because we know the reality is harsh and it gets really hard when someone leaves and it’s not possible to hold tears.

    But you my love are strong than any other emotion and that is what is depicted through your words.

    More strength to you my love♥️
    See you around ✨

  2. Appreciation to a friend like the girl you mentioned might never be enough.
    Such pure heart …way past being mean at all…way past being selfish at all… supporting the hell out of us.
    What one might say to express our gratitude to our mother for keeping her child inside her…?
    Answer to this left unanswered even after thousands of years of human existence.

    And guess what appreciation and expressing gratitude to a friend like the one you mentioned can never be enough.

    I got hinged to the line –

    “Keep looking at the part of room,
    where light enters in.
    You will be reminded again and again,
    no matter,
    What happens..
    These shadows,
    Can never hold you in.”

    This is the most creative or can say beautiful line I saw today.

    Simple thing…I mean not that big of an example…but said in the most beautiful way.
    I might as well put this as my phone wallpaper.🙈

    Love your work!

    Keep creating.

  3. Hey there anushka
    You left me ashtonished…I mean simplest of the things left unrecognised and you crafted it in a way it found a way towards heart💙.
    For the inane brain of mine such witty creation clearly put you at a place where you look like the brightest star yet so grounded.
    Your blog day is becoming more like a fan day to me.

  4. Melting lines ✨ That is simply amazing 😍 you are a great poet given a beautiful Life lesson in this poem, “Life is a tough teacher,
    We protest like an obstinate child.
    But you know what,
    This is how life goes by.” Life is indeed a tough teacher, if nothing happens in life then life won’t be much interesting isn’t it 😉✍️ Happy writing!

  5. Hey, Anushka! Hope you’re doing good. Because that’s how I want you to. ✨

    I’ve stopped myself the moment I read these lines:

    “longing eyes,
    confused mind,
    Heart entwined.”

    What an amazing rhymes.

    And then not to forget how you just didn’t write these ones but screamed out loud:

    “People happen,
    People leave,
    Let it hurt,
    Let it bleed,
    Let it heal,
    Let it go.
    Never to cry for someone,
    who doesn’t make you feel.
    So hold on…”

    But here I am to confess, that someone will always care, protect, and love her for everything she is. And for that someone you’re important.
    I loved it.
    Take care, Anushka. ✨
