If I feel depleted
Why should I breathe a name
That carves chunks of my heart
At night
And pending mornings
Sticks them
With meager liquid
That flows
In the deep
Of the dark
side of your
Quivering moon…
















Art – Midsummer Night near Vejle Fjord by Harald Slott-Møller.

She is primarily a teacher of English. Also her mind is lured by goodies like finance, economics, interest rates, the stock market, as she has a hankering for how the money is made. Nevertheless she is a dreamer on a cloud...As dreams cost nothing... In ordinary days she is a word-weaver for everything and everything that breathes. In the best of days she just follows the seasons by means of bike, skis, or roller-skates. She is grateful to all colors of the world and to people who read, smile and drop a line here, or on her email.

    In life we do encounter people who deceive us by creating false illusions & ultimately deplete us, making our soul bleed & breaking our heart every now and then, but miss I just want to express that hadn’t it been for such events of depletion then probably we might never embrace the path of our completion. If someone doesn’t leaves us shattered then we probably would never bump into that special someone who doesn’t see the cracks on our broken heart as a disgraceful entity, instead that special someone might see those cracks of our broken heart as spaces through which he/she can fill our depleted self with their unconditional love. I agree with you that one shouldn’t hold on to the feeling of depletion though we all our complete in our own individual self. Thanks for sharing such an emotional and heartwarming post. According to your convenience please do read some of my writings would love to know what you think about them 😊

“Language is not like the sun,
heating and scorching
but like the moon
keeping secrets
and the arcane magic of the night
throwing stars
in the lilacs’ claws
till dawn.” -Iulia Halatz
