An Unsent Message (Troubled Water)


Dear best friend,

I've been thinking about you.

Do you remember the times when we used to get so fed up of life? The way we used to take long rides to nowhere, singing Simon and Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water? How we would cry while we laughed at the same time? I would tell you how glad I was that we had each other. You would just make a silly face and tell me to watch the road.

I listened to that song today. Over and over and over, until I cried and cried. But I couldn't laugh. Not without you.

If only I could tell you how much I wish you never left. How much I wish I could still call you up for a cup of coffee or a walk down the park. How much I wish that we didn't have to part so soon because I had imagined so many times how we would grow old together and be silly until the very end.

Now I am here. You are there, somewhere in a different world. I miss you. You have no idea.

But I will be strong for you, and live my life happily for you. I know you would want me to.

Farewell, dear one. Until we meet again on the other end of the bridge.


Forever your best friend,
~ A.K ~

 ~ Bridge Over Troubled Water ~

When you're weary
Feeling small
When tears are in your eyes
I will dry them all

I'm on your side
When times get rough
And friends just can't be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you're down and out
When you're on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you

I'll take your part
When darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on Silver Girl,
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way

See how they shine
If you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

(Simon and Garfunkel)

Refuge

 
 An ardent heart with wings,
seeking love on no man's land
A string of wishful thinking, 
sailing away into darkness

Foolish as fools can be
Blind as blind men can only see
Always a fountain of hopes
Never a mountain of wisdom

So goes the story of one's life

~ A.K ~


Life is a series of stories. So mine seems to be. Along the way, through all of its scenarios, I have stumbled and fallen, only to find myself climbing back to my own two feet. Most of the times. The images you see and words you read here in my personal chamber of thoughts are tokens of my past and present. They are inspired by dreams, unspoken thoughts, long lost messages and meaningful conversations. All the things I keep and seek for in this ever intriguing journey we call life.

Thank you for lingering. Your presence and friendship are gems to my story.

Best,
Amalia oxx

Silence and Nothing More (IF-Ripple)


you gave me hope
then took away everything
you quenched my thirst
then drained my soul empty

stumbling
crawling
lying very still
my eyes see nothing
my skin yearns to feel

no words will cry
though tears may fall
for I will suffer in silence
and nothing more

~A.K~

An Unsent Message (Enclosing Radiance)



My dear friend,

Do you remember the time when I told you how much I love the rain?


The way clouds form and shade the world with their endless shadow, stretching from one point of view to another. The winds humming in my ears with their soft alluring tunes, slowly transforming into a ballad of ardent yearning and longing. How the sound of the first drops falling from the sky mesmerize me and the scent of earth lingering as they touch the ground. The coolness in the air penetrates into every pore of my skin, traveling to my patiently awaiting lungs as I breathe it in. It is a painting of wonders that constantly lives in my mind.

Today, I see a streak of light shining through the stretch of clouds. It dances ever so gently, touching my world with its sheer luminosity, highlighting every valley and mountain that I still yet to conquer. Places that had remained hidden for a long time, before this very day. 


Where did it come from? Where is it traveling to? Questions, and more questions I need to find answers to. But today, I shall be content. I shall stay and marvel at the luminous light that now seems to break into strays of fine golden sparks. Today, I shall be in peace. And leave my world enclosed in their tender caressing radiance.

I hope peace finds you wherever you are, my dear, dear friend.
 


An embrace,

~ A.K. ~

Seven Pages Turned


Pink cotton candy and a bouquet of daisies
A box full of charms and a handful of stars

Twinkles in your eyes
A stand full of poise

One, two, three
Four, five, six
Seven pages turned

A kiss on both cheeks
One more on the nose

My heart and my soul
Forever in yours


~A.K~


Beautiful birthday wishes to you, my darling little princess.

Post Update:


For those of you who have been following my last few posts, I'm sure you already know the 'rush' I'm going through right now. Too much is going on inside my mind, all tapping me on the head begging to come out. So, my deepest gratitude to you for understanding, my friends. :)

And thanks to my ignorance of the world outside, I have actually forgotten (yes, forgotten!) to deliver this award to a few friends. Thank you, Leah Marie Brown, for giving me this token of friendship and please, please, please forgive me for keeping this inside the drawers for far too long!! Now, you should all know that Leah is a wonderful writer whose enchanting blog is filled with magical wonders of 18th century France. Serendipity, as she and I believe in,brought me there to find her written words that took me to an era long gone but definitely not forgotten.




So here I am, continuing the tradition of blog awards, passing one to each of  these lovely friends:



Now, I was asked to share five addictions that I have, but I could only think of one.

I'm addicted to life and all the grandeur that goes along with it.

Every little thing fascinates and intrigues me. I just hope my mind has enough strength and will power to keep on pondering.

Hugs to you!!

Rhythmic Magnetism (North and South)



North to South
South to North
Two hemispheres
One ultimate force

A natural pull
An absolute call
Perfect attraction
Magnetic and strong

No ancient wisdom
Nor common sense
No words to explain
Nor doubts to regain

Just a perfect attraction
One absolute call
An ultimate force
Magnetic and strong

~ A.K ~



Note: This is an afterthought of an older piece.


As you can see, my head is quite busy right now. I don't think I've ever posted so many things in just a matter of days. I sincerely hope I'm not overwhelming any of you. This is the only place where I can spill out all the things that are going on inside this strange head of mine. And believe me, it gets ugly when I don't :). So my deepest gratitude to you, good souls, for bearing with me.

Peace,
Amalia


Post update:

To me, blogging is more than just about sharing my thoughts and feelings. In fact, I find it to be a very satisfying world where I'm rewarded with gracious friends who widen my horizon and teach me more knowledge than before with their comments and inputs. My new friend E.V., bless her, has given me a great tip to compliment this piece, a mesmerizing poem by John Donne, Valediction Forbidding Mourning. You can read the summary here, and believe me, it will sweep you off your feet!  oxx

An Unsent Message (Reminiscence)


My dear friend,

I dream even when I am awake. Have I ever told you this before?

Images fill my head no matter what I do or where I am. They take me away to places I’ve never seen and speak to me in whispers of riddles. It is never easy to contain them. They push and pull, begging for me to open the door. Sometimes they even sing to me in hypnotic serenades, shifting me to higher grounds and more.

Have I ever told you this before?

Then something struck me. I think you already know. It paralyzed my brain and blinded my senses, swiftly taking away all the colors that lingered in my vision and turned every corner of my mind into a sparkling white mist of divinity. Somewhere, a hidden tunnel is now opened. New images have flown out, dancing with great brilliancy. My senses revived, my energy storming in a passionate rush.

Yes, I still dream even when I am awake.

I think you already know.


 ~ A.K ~



A note to my wonderful artist friends...

True inspiration is a blessing. Don't you think? Sometimes it hits you when you least expect it. Sometimes it wakes you up to things you never knew possible. So use it wisely, I say, and embrace it passionately. Be brave and let it show you who you truly are.

But then, I'm sure you already know.


With love,
Amalia

Crystale (IF - Slither)


your words slither
your thoughts provoking

corrupt me, as you may
no shield shall prevent it

still, 
my heart will remain pure
and my innocence intact

my one promise to you
so it shall stay

~ A.K ~




metaphorically, as you wished...
