Noor.
.
She sits on the edge of a mountain, thinking about all the times when she had her heart broken, when she saw her life falling down into an abyss, and all the times she wanted to end it all in a flash, for sometimes, she says, you lose that will to be alive, to just take that one step forward and see a little bit more of this world, of this life. There are times when this journey isn't as beautiful as you always thought.
.
But she smiled back at all those times, she smiled back at the mountains, wiping that tear drop from her eyes, and looked towards the heavens, thanking them for giving her the courage to take that one step forward, and the next one after it, and then another, for she never realised what was waiting for her beyond the turn. That the mountains would've been so white, and those colourful prayer flags would deck her vision. And she'd be free to walk through these beautiful trails that'd be leading to nowhere, those incredible paths of bliss.
.
And I stand a little away, staring at her, knowing what she'd be thinking about, and at times like these I want to go upto her and hug her tightly. But I let her be.
.
I just watch her smile. Secretly celebrate each of her wins against the battles she kept fighting. And I just tell myself how much I love her.
.
For somedays she needs herself to be the Noor of her own life, and guide herself towards happiness, and then she'd tell me how I happened to be the most unexpectedly beautiful thing that could have happened to her, and I'd just stay silent and smile.
.
It was just half the truth, for she never knew that it was I who found himself stuck at the crossroads. Still chained to the past. Still miserable in the company of nightmares. Still finding a way out, until she arrived as a liberation for every broken piece of my heart. And somewhere in that freedom, I eventually found myself mending the broken parts of me.
.
So in another corner of the mountain, I was to be been found smiling, while thinking of her, of all the battles I was winning. But I wondered if Noor ever saw me smiling as well.
.
"I always stare at you smiling like an idiot," Noor would say to me one day.

Home is that one place where the heart yearns to return. Home is a beautiful, personal comfort where the soul feels free. Yet when I think of home, unlike other people (non natives) who relate Kashmir to paradise, I on the other hand being a native get reminded of the way my wounds remain unhealed, of my childhood spent under the shadow of terror and violence, my school being shut down because of unrests, the terrified eyes of my mother which stared at me with all the love she could gather - praying for my safe return to home. At times, my heart decides to walk on the path of hope, but there are times, like today, when the wounds get worse and I feel tired. Lately, whatever has been happening in Kashmir isn't new, but it is getting worse and that is painful. Frankly, I condemn the excess of security forces in the valley but at the same time I feel stone pelting is no solution either. We all are killing each other here, which hasn't been leading us anywhere, except towards bloodshed and more bloodshed.
Truth is, we Kashmiris want peace but our anger needs to be addressed. Whatever media is portrayed has been successful in false feeding the common people who are unaware of the realities of Kashmir. Yes, there is frustration and anger among Kashmiris but my question is - has anyone tried to find out the reason. Let's stop building walls and rather bridge gaps. Let's talk about it and try to reach measures to solve it. Let's spread love.

“I’m often undone
by your tiniest glances,
your softest touches.”
...
Daily Haiku on Love by Tyler Knott Gregson

So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality, nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit.

Sometimes watching someone else walk the same path you once walked is hard. We so badly want to guide them a different way, so badly we want them to learn from our mistakes.

The face when you've written a paper, a detailed question, and a presentation handout all in one morning... and your anxiety says "but WHAT ABOUT YOUR SERIES, YOU NEED TO WRITE THAT TOO" #done #finalsweek #dying #writersofinstagram #writingproblems

I might have one notebook too many 📓 📚

Look into my eyes
Not the black and white surface
Look deeper
See?
See the fears laying beside the jar of tears on the shelf of perfectionism
Look into my eyes
Search for the holes
Search for the empty spaces
But please love me anyway.
