You're On Your Own Now..

This is NOT my work. It's my sister's actually. She doesn't have a blog of her own and she's not a frequent writer or anything.. But this piece of work really hit me! So here it is on my blog!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


            Someone once told me "Don't suffocate in your love." Everytime I think of you these words ring in my head making everything else a blur. These words remind me of the fact that you walked 10 steps away from me everytime I took one towards you.


Breathe I tell myself.


"Find your own calm.." she told me. It's not something you'll find even if you search the entire universe frantically for it. You'll find it for sure but within. Within yourself, within the small heart contained in your body. Inside it you'll find your galaxy, your peace, your calm. You'll find you!


"Move on! Venture out into the unknown." they scare me the most. It feels like I can't move on. It seems impossible to walk away. NO, Not because you're tieing me down or holding me back ,but because I've held on for so long. Too long rather.But I've decided to breathe and let breathe. I'm moving on. I'm letting go. I'm falling into the unknown for an adventure I have absolutely no clue about. For an ADVENTURE in the true sense.


I've accepted it. I'm not going to fight. I'm not angry. I don't hate you. I have loved you and always will. But it's time that i retrace my steps. I'm going back to start over, to move on, and to venture out into the realms that were once strangers. 


And our memories will continue to twirl in my head like the desert sands shift in wind.


Breathe. You're on your own now.

Hmmm, writing well runs in the family, does it? :)

I don't know if this is fiction, but I have experienced something similar too; I suppose everyone does once in his/her lifetime to understand life better.

Your sister writes well, and needless to say but she thinks deep! :)

Thank You Priyanka! :)

And Sourav, it's intense, and it's her. Thank You! :)
Yes, I agree with the first part...

Well, no doubt, your sister writes well... ask her to start a blog of her own!

Anyway, honestly, I am not very much into deep philosophical thinking (Until and unless I am wearing my philo-cap!) - but, at times, yes... certain things, certain events; they make you think, analyze - and help you move on. There are things which help one to understand oneself, and of-course, life in a better and a far superior manner!

Keep writing!

@Arjit, I absolutely agree with what you have to say.

And yeah, my sister will start her own blog soon! :)
