She felt left behind, fainted, empty.
Slowly, the things she loved- she saw them lose their colours.
Daily but slowly, the cheerful voice that once ricocheted through her mind- she felt it turn into faded whispers.
Everyday but slowly, the life she once adored- she saw it racing against her existence.
Slowly and gradually, her once warm, porcelain, flawless skin seemed to have gone cold and pale. And her blood- stale.
Slowly and all at once- she started to fade.
Slowly, everything seemed to be lacking- everything felt messing- everything felt and seemed empty yet.. everything too much.
Slowly, but she knew- it was not the beloved things that lost their colours.
Slowly, she observed- it was not the lovely voice that turned into a whisper.
Slowly but ever on time- She saw it was not the world racing against her existence.
Slowly and too late- she realised; it was not anything but her. Her own self turning into nothingness.
Slowly- she tried to hasten and pick it all up – to collect it all back- to put everything back into place.
But little did she know- very slowly she had faded- from translucent to completely and utterly transparent.
Slowly, she fell and she wept. Slowly, the ground let itself soak in her crystal clear tears.
Slowly, but surely – she realised it was too late.
Calmly yet slowly, the winds spoke to her- the light shone on her.
Slowly, the ground told her in.
Slowly, very reluctantly- she took her first steps in.
Slowly but certainly- she knew there was no going back.
And slowly they realised she was never coming back ever.
Someday, sometime when you feel as if things are not going your way, you're so not feeling peaceful rather devastated. Sick of daily hustle-bustle- you can't seem to take control of life. As if life is accelerating faster than you can keep up with, like life is leaving you behind! If you feel left behind or you feel ugly, tired or even sick.
Go out. Look at the sky. Adore the color it beholds—the clouds and the beauty of Sun which manifests it.
Breathe it in. Breathe in the beauty of this sky, the miraculous rays of light falling on you and the heavenly aura it boasts.
Breathe in all of it!
Your negativity, tiredness, sickness, tension, feelings of devastation, loneliness, fed up-ness and all the bad stuff you have filled yourself with– Replace all of that with the beauty and the peace you're breathing in.
Exhale the former and inhale the latter.
Go to the rooftop.
Get a pen and paper.
Write. All of it. Write it down. EVERYTHING!
It doesn't matter if you are creative enough or not - WRITE! Just write it down.
Explore— yourself, the things around you. Adore the nature- the beauty of which you're bestowed with.
Feel beautiful. Fall in love again—With everything around you.
Just do whatever makes you happy. Do anything it takes to feel happy.
Just be okay, okay? Okay!
And I knew it was then—the moment you stood there; below the moonlight- It shining on you like it's just meant to, adding more beauty to that already-so-perfect face. Your eyes that reflected to the light- sparkling and glittering.
I knew it the moment you made my heart race and it was only you who tamed it.
I closed my eyes and I breathed it all in.
It was then I realised that I was in love with your eyes. In love with your hair, your lips, your face. I was in love with you. Completely and utterly.
And also did I know - there was no way out.
