Shadow

Posted by Sowmya:) on May 24, 2008

U know what, the guys at Klash of the Konfessioners had put my last entry on their blog contest and I got some pretty nice comments too 🙂 Am trying my luck again. This week’s word is ‘Shadow’ ….check it out

“Can’t believe this Swati! Look at yourself”, Gayatri was fuming.
You have nothing left. Your children, job….why did you give up everything? For Arvind?
Gayathri thought of the enthusiastic and bubbly Swati who charmed everyone around her. People fell in love with her inspite of themselves. Everyone wanted to be with her since laughter & fun were guaranteed. Then she fell for Arvind….
Looking at her pale and spiritless sister, Gayathri could not help screaming, “What have u done to yourself? You were not like this”.
“I loved to talk, Arvind liked silence. I loved my job, he felt threatened. I wanted children, he was not interested. I loved sunshine, he preferred darkness. All I am now is a shadow”.

Life-live it

Posted by Sowmya:) on May 20, 2008

What is life asks one and all
Every spring, summer or fall

When you are weak
and things seem bleak
Then all you do is sigh
and reflect on life’s lows & highs

Life is beautiful, good & nice
If u did’nt think so
you’re in for a surprise

What is life, if u ask
It is not about existing under a thousand masks
Its about making relationships last
about taking things slowly, not running fast
Its about having a contended family
and friends who, in us, believe
Its about getting up each day with a smile
and bringing it everyone’s lips around one mile
Its about being able to light up another’s life
Fill it up with bright colours and warm sunshine

Don’t look at life as a battlefield with endless struggle and war
Live it as a flower spreading fragrance one place and all

Love

Posted by Sowmya:) on May 18, 2008

Its euphoric once and then depression
Its a beautiful way of expression
It makes u laugh sometimes & sometimes cry
It gives u the inspiration for another try

It makes u feel light & lighted
Thats when u r absolutely delighted
It gives u a reason to live
A reason to smile and in good things believe

It gives u hope every morning
And soothes your wounds every night
You can’t classify it as wrong or right
You never know when it might strike

We suddenly seem beautiful to ourselves
And feel the days brighter and flowers bloom by themselves
Nothing seems more important than that secret glance
Thats when your heart writes poetry freelance

Your life begins and ends with his one smile
You could do anything for it, even run ten miles
You cease to be your own master
B’cos of him who makes your heart go flutter
Your heart leaps when you see that someone
Its love, its love that makes the world go round 🙂

Knockout :D

Posted by Sowmya:) on May 17, 2008

Guys Guys…did anyone watch the IPL match yesterday? yeah rite, the blink and miss one. U blinked and Kolkata Knight Riders had lost a wicket!
Was’nt I loving it…..the pure joy of seeing Mumbai win a match ‘oh-so-comprehensively’….not giving the KKR guys the minutest of chance to get back( well…KKR was’nt too keen on tht either..hehe)
Fantastic! Fabulous! Fantabulous! Mind-blowing! Awesome! I am feeling euphoric…Yipeeeeeeee!
Of the total of 67, 43 was scored by 3 guys with extras as the 4 largest contributor…..just imagine! Sure it was a 20-20 match but this match saw a total of 20 overs from both innnings….jayasurya ensured a thumping victory (if it could get any louder:)
Shaun Pollock….U r my man of the match though! What a performance 4-0-12-3 …….hats off to u! Keep it goin …Deccan Chargers, see u guys on Sunday!!!!
