Solitude

In a hyperconnected world it’s a disorder,
For few a blessing, so nothing to bother,
Society renames it as illness,
Fails to see the beauty in stillness,
Switching roles within different relation,
I forgot, who am I ? in this chelation,
Being aloof is not what I need,
Want to be me, away from heed,
Melody in chirping birds, music in flutter,
Revive my mind & remind to declutter,
Winds of dawn coated in peace,
Brings whirling thoughts to ease
Those early hours of solitude seem real jewels,
When I witness pure beauty, nobody dwells,
World asleep, with numerous thoughts buried in head,
Nobody knows this feeling, when grey sky turns to radiant red,
Peace within & that magnificent sunrise,
Empowers this soul & Free it from wordly lies,
Sitting on stairs & fragrance of tea, I silently stare the scene,
My thoughts comes to rest & I am lost, so not to be seen.

I am Dr. Ekta, extremely simple being, a soul continuing journey of this life as a healer, whose sole motto is to spread love and compassion. I am one of the luckiest who have been programmed to see beauty in everyone and everything. Dentist by profession & Amateur writer driven by passion, I love pouring my emotions in words. I believe writing or reading something which caresses soul, purifies mind, ignites emotions is as good as medicines, because you become, what you feed your mind. A Bibliophile-cum-Musicophile, who write to express hidden emotions of souls,  about meaning of every emotion, which have been entirely convoluted by media and world.

People interested in knowing more about human emotions in its pure form can visit my blog for wider perspective and insights.

A Reminder

Hey you, with the broken heart.
Don’t you think it’s time for a fresh start?
You thought pushing ‘em away was smart.
But you’ve already started to fall apart.

Stop thinking that you’re a damaged product.
That you can’t get out of your demon’s clutch.
Don’t give an outsider the right to judge.
Those ‘normal ones’ live in their heads just as much.

No need to wish that you had never been born.
Just ‘cause you’re a little too concerned.
Even the pretty rose has it’s thorns.
But you got to speak up for them to listen.

I know how it feels to be hopeless.
But it’s not just you. Everyone is a mess.
Go easy on yourself and maybe confess.
All you need is some love and caress.

You’re only afraid of drowning cause you can’t swim.
But it’s okay to be scared. You’re allowed to scream.
No need to try so hard with a smile so grim.
Know that you don’t have to be like the rest of them.

You don’t have to be alone. You can find a companion.
Someone who gets you can be your salvation.
If someone ever questions your strive for perfection,
You got to remember it’s just their opinion.

Your fear to trust again is not gonna last.
Just take your time. No need to go fast.
You know the reason. You’re still too attached.
But soon you’ll be able to let go of your sad past.

Normal is overrated. It’s fun to be crazy.
No need to be worthy. Just try to be happy.
Is it the world or you, that’s your enemy?
You don’t have to be alone. You don’t have to feel lonely.

Are you so selfish that you never noticed?
Or are you just blind or have you been jinxed?
Open your eyes. See the love that still exists.
After all, no one is too broken to be fixed.

I’m Lost

Filled with all these questions,
Now I’m wondering.
In search of answers,
I’ve been wandering.

Every clue I thought I found,
To solve the mystery,
Just got me more involved,
And added to my misery.

The path that I’ve been walking,
Seems to lead nowhere.
I feel like I’ve lost everything,
And given in to my fears.

I’m stuck in the middle now. Should I proceed or go back?
All the signs of happiness, it seems that I lack.
Lights have faded away, and future looks so dark.
These walls of compulsions, I wish I could crack.

I’m not sure where I’m heading to.
Not sure either what I’m gonna do.
‘Cause my words are as worthless as a moo.
And me, compelled to walk on someone else’s shoe.

In this cold, dark path, I’ve been covered with frost.
I need to find my way soon, ’cause surviving is must.
But then again I’m not sure, whom I can trust.
In this journey of life, I’m stranded and I’m lost.

Futile

To dust
I shall return
From limbo of lifeness

If time is so fragile
And life untouchable

What am I here for?

A speck of eternity
A gift for a moment
Between you and me

Remember me
In the sprinkle
That blesses
You each morning

By a dot along the skyline
I will be waiting for you on the other side
Certainly

Esmeralda Balita is a living paradox.

My log cabin in the woods

There’s a place I like to go
A safe place where all is well
Alone and far away from it all
Serene, unspoiled, carefree
It’s my log cabin in the woods

It’s a refuge from life’s chaos
Free from sure distractions
To breathe fresh, clean air
At peace with my thoughts
And be alone with myself

Surrounded by tall pine trees
Pristine streams and creeks
Mountains in the distance
Wide open skies all around
And where it’s perpetually fall

Mornings spent writing and reading
Serenaded by my favorite music
I’m already tea-drunk by midday
Evenings spent hiking in the woods
Becoming one with nature’s glory

Orange and red sunsets each day
Leading to a nightly performance
Starring rain, thunder, and lightning
Orchestrated by a talented conductor
With a blanket of stars as the finale

The day ends inside by a warm fire
Smoke curls out the stone chimney
Soft light glows from the windows
As picturesque as an old postcard
From a faded scrapbook of long ago…

Oh, a greater fantasy never existed
It’s not a memory — it’s a daydream
I don’t have a log cabin in the woods
But I visit that place as often as I can
It’s always there whenever I need it.

Something Inside!

I feel something
Deep inside of me
I can express it when I sing
But can’t explain literally

You came before
And then, you left
What did you come for?
Was it a bet?

I’m glad I forgot about you
Because all that comes to my mind
When I think of you is ‘Eww!’
Now I relax and feel the wind.
