Day 366: The End

A journey started with trepidation, the weight of so much expectation. How could I have said yes to this year, was I drunk?! It's a bit unclear! Three hundred and sixty-six days to complete, a challenge that is a bit too bittersweet. For finding my voice and words once more, means accepting I had thrown… Continue reading Day 366: The End

Day 365: Unbreakable Ties

We are together in every moment, by my side, you may not stay, the heart does not see any distance, nor any debts to repay. Bound not rules of obligation, but strands formed from love and memories, and then further fortified by passion, a rope built with shared stories. Pull the cord as far as… Continue reading Day 365: Unbreakable Ties

Day 362: Therapy

I am weighed down by the words unsaid between us and the expectations of accommodations we are afraid to ask. Knowing that in the asking is the admittance that we were not as we once believed ourselves to be, and time had not been the friend, we imagined forever knowing. © Manivillie Kanagasabapathy

Day 360: Joyful Sounds

A day of respite, from the troubles of yesterday, a moment with loved ones, to show how they brighten your way. It's the silence, that follows a thoughtful meal, the looks of contentment, that need no words of hurray. A warm laugh, followed by a loving touch, for jokes heard too often but that sound… Continue reading Day 360: Joyful Sounds

Day 358: The Moon’s Awakening

Cast in the silvery glow of the moon, I see the truths I kept hidden, the lies I took comfort in believing and the people who found joy in my pain. Cast in the silvery ray of the moon, I see the silver threads of power in my skin, the light of the universe reflected… Continue reading Day 358: The Moon’s Awakening

Day 356: The Reason I am Probably Still Single

I don't get it, no matter the angle from which I consider the question, that blind faith by which you connect the future to an unknown element, another heart. © Manivillie Kanagasabapathy AN: The Cynic... So just two poems came to me, one right after the other - Yesterday's post on love (romantic view) and… Continue reading Day 356: The Reason I am Probably Still Single

Day 355: When He Asks me if I Would Leave…

"I don't know the future," I gently tell him, his face cradled between the hands, he had just warmed from his touch. "But the me, that exist in this here and now, cannot envision a life where you are not holding me at night." © Manivillie Kanagasabapathy AN: My Romantic side....

Day 354: The Reasons Why We Are No Longer Friends 

**AN: Apologies for the repost - For some reason WordPress moved this post from yesterday, December 19, 2016, to published on December 3, 2016** You willfully linger in the empty dark doubting both, the beauty of the night and fearful of embracing the light.

Day 353: Serendipity

My home is a luminous pearl in the Indian Ocean I am told. An iridescent drop of Buddha's tears, haunting and beautiful. This home I collect, through historical memory. People, places, and spices, teasing the edges of my senses, like the ebbs and flows of waves on the beaches of Colombo - or is it… Continue reading Day 353: Serendipity
