Every now and then, we as a whole need indications of how muddled love can be. It’s not generally that simple, sweet feeling and it’s not generally cheerful. In any case, we’ve gotten so used to the thought of ‘idealize’ love, we pass up a great opportunity for its different shades and tones. From becoming more acquainted with somebody to holding their hand, from doing combating your first set of issues together to knowing affection does not generally expect to stay, Komal Kapoor’s words take us back to what cherishing somebody genuinely involves.

°Cups of Sadness° . Walking through the door, the cups are inescapable they are on the counter, on the table, on the floor some half-full of water, dust floating atop coffee mugs with a white and green fuzz tumblers with rings of red, <the wine was always drunk> this was the only sign that something was wrong unless someone looked past the smile at shifty eyes, ready for home plans canceled last minute <because there are moments where it seems like a good idea to leave but when the time comes, it is unbearable, or so I understand, hidden in the excuses you offer> It passes, it returns I no longer ask, why are you sad I know, I know you do not know why but I look for the cups so I know, when not to leave you alone for too long. . . Dedicated to a friend, sharing for #mentalhealthawarenessmonth I do not claim to know much about depression, it wears different masks and plays many tricks. Sending lots of love to anyone fighting depression. I have seen how difficult it is and your battle is commendable. . . #mentalhealth #poems #prose #lifelessons #poets #poetry #inspirationalquotes #lifelesson #lifequotes #creativewriting #wordstoliveby #artistic #wordsporn #positivepsychology #artistic #depression #poem #advice #positivequotes #psychology #artists #creatives #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #wrinkles

The last few times I saw you, I hadn't been able to look into your eyes they pulled me in, pulled out the emotion in me leaving me drowning in feeling: knowing you didn't love me knowing I still loved you . I look into your eyes now, were they always this dark a shade of brown? I swear I remember speckles of gold and green a glimmer, a sheen it's gone, or maybe I dreamt it up. . Here we sit you talk on and on (About you, of course) I stare into your eyes, uninteruppted by emotions and my heart settles into quiet indifference. This, I realize, is moving on. . .

I realize, I love you, and it frightens me <if I am being honest,  I'd known it for a while but it is far easier to bury some truths than think them aloud> I had avoided it for so long this falling in love bit hand out, shoes on ready to run always ready to run. Because I believe in one great love a love that spans  years and dimensions and universes a love so great I would no longer be my own, I feel it, it is you it has always been you it will always be you and it weakens me to know you may not feel the same too. . .

Each rejection is a sign that you are growing; in business and in love. I have faced rejection on both fronts recently and it is easy to fall in the trap of feeling dejected. But I remind myself how far I have come, the chances I have taken: talking about my feelings is monumental for me and trying a new career path is overwhelming. But both are also exhilirating and I am not going to let my recent rejections stop me. Rather, they are a reminder that I have been brave enough to try. I hope we all have the courage to continue trying. Happy Monday loves ❤ have a killer week. . . Follow @komalesque for more poetry, musings, and goofiness. .

There is a battle raging every time I sit with you a fog of doubts shrouds me, {can you even see me through this?} I refuse to admit I love you yet my heart beats your name just the same If I look close enough the battle is clear on your face too your eyes betray feeling your voice shakes under the burden of words unsaid yet, it is just not the right time, {right?} so we sit, together battlefields apart you smile as if everything is fine I laugh as if I am not drowning inside. . .

°Those Who Stay° [c a p t i o n] What I have learned is the people who complain about your walls are the flighty ones that never intended to stay. The ones who love you dearly, understand there is a whole life to get to know one another,  brick by brick, memory by memory.  They open their arms and say, take all the time you need  because I am not going anywhere I know enough and I love you. . // . I have often been told that I have walls up and sometimes I worry it holds me back in relationships (friends or otherwise). But I recently had a great conversation with my brother who reminded me that not everyone deserves to know everything about you all at once. His advice inspired this lesson learned piece. . .
