Scribblings and scrawls of a hopeless romantic soul

Fake Smiles

Written for Mind and Life Matters’ Limerick Challenge Week 5: Pain


And her eyes were like the clouds shedding tears

A cumulus of heartaches, pains, and fears

Tears rolled down like droplets of rain

Hiding beneath the smile she feigns

A silent scream, deep down, nobody hears

It is painful enough to have a silent scream but to have to put up a smile to hide it, is even more agonizing. Some people fake a smile because they have no one to turn to, some people fear that they’ll be misunderstood, while some would rather keep the suffering to themselves than be a burden to anyone else. Oftentimes, it’s a tug-of-war between breaking down and faking smile.

So, today, I hope we find time to let it go. Let it all go, even just for a minute. Don’t try to hold it in. Cry, scream, drop the fake smile. And then breathe, take a deep one. 🙂


Written for Mind and Life Matters’ Limerick Challenge Week 3: Magic


In life there is no greater mystery

Than a true love devoid of trickery

Two souls stood the test of time

With trust and faith intertwined

And the magic of love they hold key

Yesterday, I posted a six word story about an old couple dancing sweetly under the sun. I couldn’t help but think how amazing that couple must be and wonder what could be their secret to a lasting love. It’s surprising how the world has defined love in so may ways yet it still remained a mystery at the end of the day. 🙂

Immortal Love

Written for Mind and Life Matters’ Limerick Challenge Week 2: Immortal


There was a man and a woman in love

A promise made to the heavens above

Though life seemed so vicious

Ruthless, harsh, and malicious

An immortal love they’ll forever have

Have a happy morning everyone! 🙂
