Ecstatic Failure

Think it over

10 Things I Have Learned

rock_26iin | 21 January, 2007 12:41

1. Everybody, every single person wears a mask

2. There is no such thing as a genuine person

3. People believe that circumstances define them. With the power of human will, circumstances can be defined by the people

4. Scarred hearts heal too slowly. Scarred egos don't heal at all.

5. You can be double-crossed by anyone, even your closest friends...or so you think they are.

6. A 'yes' can be easily converted into a 'no', given a plausible (not necessarily accurate) explanation

7. Memory is your only true possession, relish it for as long as you have it. Don't forget the bad times either, they will help you along your way

8. Hope is a wonderful abstract.

9. Wrath, rage and anger are to be expressed, and expressed only towards whom they are directed.

10. Life always comes back to you full circle.

I am an introvert and a loner. More so than anyone else who claims to be one. I push people away from me, I never get close to anyone, even the friends I have now are only because of circumstances or because they made an effort to become my friend. I would not say I am unsociable, but I enjoy solitude. I would not say I don't feel anything for anyone, but I do end up feeling too much for certain people and the heartbreak I've suffered when they go away has been too much to take. I would not say that I don't like anyone, its just that people I like, end up not liking me. But one thing I will say, I will not change. I will remain the same person for the entirety of my life. I will still be who I am, the same sarcastic fool who doesn't know a thing about anything. I am happy all the time, but sometimes I feel its a face for everything I do, for everything I feel, I don't want to let anyone into my enclosed space, into everything that is bottled up inside of me. I am too afraid of being betrayed. Too afraid of what other people might think. That they might judge me for what I am. I claim to not be bothered by what other people say, and most of the time, I am not, its only when someone I care about tells me something like that, is when I feel bad, bad being a very soft term for what I am implying. And thats why I never let anyone into my own space. Even my "best" friends don't know the half of what I am, the one fourth of what I comprise of. I have a lot of emotion in me that no one but me gets to see. Sometimes its reflected in these blogs that I write on an irregular basis. But more often that not, many feelings are never portrayed, because I never let them come out into the open. These blogs are my emotional valve, they let me be who I am, without being judged, without people thinking about what I am, then again I ask myself, why make them public if you don't want anyone to know, and the reply is that I do want people to know, I just don't want the people close to me to know. I don't want them knowing everything about me. I know it is weird, but that is the way I am, and the way I will be. The written word will always be stronger than anything else in my book.

A few lyrics that encapsulate the way I feel right now :

"I am nothing more than a little boy inside
That cries out for attention,
Yet I always try to hide
'Cos I talk to you like children,
tho I don't know how I feel
But I know I'll do the right thing
If the right thing is revealed
'Cos it's always raining in my head
Forget all the things I should have said"

The Rhapsodist Returneth

rock_26iin | 28 September, 2006 12:28

The Fire Of Life

The fire of life
Burning silently inside of me
Raging now
From all the hurt and misery

Desperate tries
Failed attempts
Sinister lies
Grey events

Sharpened edges
Of the swords I yield
Angry now
The fire inside of me

Massacre of egos
Destruction of vanity
Vanquishment of veto
Regaining my sanity

Clearer vision
Misguided emotions aplenty
Redemption sought
But their eyes are empty

Softened corners
Of the words I speak
Softening now
The fire inside of me

Dances of joy
Smiles of happiness
And a hint
Of remorseful sadness

The love of life
Urging me to go on
The thread of hope
Giving rise to a new dawn

Silent now
Is the fire inside of me

I am happy.

rock_26iin | 23 September, 2006 08:07

I am happy. Very happy. Thats all I need to say. Its such a pure emotion this time. I am actually happy, in the right sense of the word. Theres a purity I never felt before. Life is lovely.

The Kite That Doesnt Want To Let Go

rock_26iin | 24 July, 2006 00:12

Why must I return every time I leave? Why must I always come back in spite of saying "goodbye"? Is it denial of the facts? Or is it something more? Is there a bond that holds me? Or is it my own inability to let go?

Funny, how life is. Funny, how the brain works too. Thought processes, problem solving, can achieve such logical tasks but it also dreams, and sometimes dreams up some totally illogical things. Imagines some things, which are unimaginable in your conscious state. And imagines them with such clarity! As if it weren't a dream, but a memory. A memory of something deeply cherished. Something I may never own...never even see again.

And yet I must dream every night. Dream up memories…or at least that is what I’d like them to be. Why must I be like this? Why must it be so difficult to let go? Again and again, I have tried to let go, and have always returned. Like the kite, which is let go so high, it feels it is free, until it is reeled back in. Why must I always be reeled back in like that? Can’t that string snap and let me soar, as I should?

Or maybe that is something I don’t want. Maybe I am afraid of being free. Maybe I am afraid of letting go. Or maybe I simply don’t want to let go of the person who holds the string. Maybe the memories are too many to forget. The bonds that have formed over time are too strong to be cut. And maybe I really don’t want them cut.

All I really can do then is stay attached to that string. Perhaps, someday someone else will come and take over that string. Though I doubt it will be very easy. Perhaps, no one will come to take over that string. Perhaps, I will never let go.

I have but one recourse : Hope.

The Elysian Queen

rock_26iin | 18 June, 2006 01:03

Star-gazing nights
Days lost in the wild
The bumblebee dances
The dragon plays with the child

A starry spotlight
A winter sheen
And shining bright
The Elysian queen

Innocent walks
Down the lanes of yore
Night long talks
Still we longed for much more

A velvet gown
A muslin grace
A blinding crown
An aristocratic face

Sweet smells
In the gardens of old
Long playful stories
Many a days back told

Freedom, Ecstacy, Rejoice

rock_26iin | 12 June, 2006 23:45

Its all in the expression. Freedom, Ecstacy and a look of rejoicement.

A Small Doubt

rock_26iin | 19 May, 2006 01:14

Why do dreams come true so seldom?

And if you know that something is impossible, should you stop dreaming about it?

My Life...The Story Today

rock_26iin | 15 May, 2006 02:06

Over the years (if you include my previous blog), my blog has become a place for me to let off steam, share joy, share sorrow, look at life from a different angle. Sometimes I go over my previous posts and just ponder how naive I was to feel so strongly about such trivial issues.

Life has been good to me. I feel I can say that. But there is just one thing missing for it to become perfect. And I have received confirmation that it will never be perfect. So I try to salvage what I have left and still amounts to a fairly nice picture...the only thing missing is the only thing that mattered all the time...other issues were small...this one stayed with me for four years and probably will never go away.

Well, life is like that. Takes away what you want most, gives you things you feel you could do without.

Tum Pukar Lo...

rock_26iin | 03 May, 2006 23:16

The sky was a perfect mix of gold and bluish-white. It looked like something out of an artist’s dream. The wind was playing with my hair, while I took in the view, which looked like the artist had imagined the entire world in paint. Fields of green stretched out as far as the eye could see, at the end of the horizon stood a hill, filled with all the colors, as if the epitome of the surroundings itself. There was not a single person in sight. As awed as I was by the sheer beauty around me, I could not help wondering where I was. My zeal to discover more about this place pushed that thought to the recess of my mind temporarily.

As it was the only objective in sight, I headed towards the hill. There was a feeling that I was going to find something there though I had no clue what it might be. This sensation started pumping adrenalin in me and I suddenly realized that I was running towards the hill. Panting I reached the foot of the hill, looking up I saw the most varied range of flowers this inexperienced pair of eyes had ever laid eyes on. Roses, marigolds, daffodils and many, many more I did not know the names of. And to my surprise, there was a path leading upwards.

I started walking up the path for it seemed the logical thing to do and all the time, I just stared at the flowers around me. Finally, I reached the top and saw something very strange…She was there, lying on a bed of roses. Amazed at what I was seeing, my mouth dropped open. Then, as if to needle me more, the landscape or the force behind it decided to make the moment even stranger…I saw myself come up to her, a red rose in hand and place it in the pile on which she lay. She got up and took me (the other me, i.e.) in her arms. Dumbfounded, flabbergasted and all the synonyms of these words were the thoughts running in my head. Things just kept getting stranger, they – or was it us? – parted, and there was the “look” in their eyes. Then strangeness knocked again, and they (we) jumped off the hill. That act jolted me out of my trance and I ran towards them with arms stretched forward. Only to see that they were flying, her dress and his (mine) coat billowing behind them. They soared away into the gold of the sky, leaving me at the peak alone.

Then I woke up and went on my way.

Life Left, I Stayed

rock_26iin | 24 April, 2006 02:12

How do you let go of something you held dear for n number of years?

How does everything shatter with a sentence?

Why does a dream almost never turn into reality?

When the hell did life get this complicated???

How the hell did life get so complicated??

One day, we are just laughing and talking about what happened at school or what stupid game we were to play and then all of a sudden everything changed.

Don't give me all that adolescence and puberty bullshit. I know about all that. But then again, life jumped. It jumped and left me on the wrong side of the canyon and I'm still afraid to take that jump...maybe I took it and am looking longingly at the other end. And the strangest thing is, all the people in my life just took the jump and walked away, no one waited, no one even gave that canyon a second one but me.
I wonder what happened. Many a times I wonder. How the hell did life manage this? How did the people manage this?? It was as if everyone just shed their innocence like old snake skin, which just had to be rubbed off. I don't understand it. Did we grow up? Is part of growing up giving up things which make your heart happy? Where did the sunshine go? Where did that little park of our imagination disappear to? Or does that only happen in cartoons?? Where time moves, but life does not. Where characters stay the same age forever.

Where did the purity go? The time when you did something, you did it for the mere joy of doing it. Not because it was smart, not because other people would talk about it, just because you wanted to do it.

When did we become old, mature? Where did those midsummer walks and talks go? Little games, stupid though they were, we'd laugh our heads off at them.

Everything forgotten so quickly? And then, why can't I forget all that? Why am I still left standing here? I still don't understand it.

Then there are some nights. Talking till 3 in the morning, laughing when the person who'd come to check on you left without realizing you were awake the entire night. Sharing stories about stupid professors and lecturers. How did it slip away?

I don't know what happened. All I know is that those days are gone and are probably never going to come back. All I know is that life left while I stayed.

Flowchart Of Life

Life is unbelievably simple. I even made a flow chart to explain it


Meaning Of Love : The Truth

rock_26iin | 05 April, 2006 00:26

"Whats it like to fall in love?"

"Well..say the object of you affection walks by..first, your heart falls into your stomach and splashes your innards. All the moisture makes you sweat profusely. This condensation shorts the circuits in your brain and then you get all woozy. Then your brain burns out altogether, your mouth disengages and you babble like a cretin until she leaves"

"THAT's love?"

But we still love to do it!! I mean, how nuts are we?!

I am happy :D
