Unrequited love ..

I was browsing the net for some good songs about unrequited love (Yeah, I enjoy those weepy lyrics .. :) )
Seems people have focused mainly on the "classic" ones.

So, I've decided to list some of the relatively recent songs on this evergreen topic. So pull out your tissues, ladies and gentlemen, here I begin:

1. Gotta be somebody -Nickelback
I'll not waste my time with band introductions.
Let me just say that this is one of those rare songs that feel both melancholic and hopeful at the same time.
These lyrics say it all:

" 'Cuz nobody wants to be the last one there
And everyone wants to feel like someone cares
Someone to love with my life in their hands
There's gotta be somebody for me like that "



2. Grenade -Bruno Mars
Just heard this song recently and fell in love with it.
Kinda depressing and negative but I like it. ;)



3. Boulevard of Broken Dreams -Green Day
I guess most people must've heard this one. Those who haven't, should.
Doesn't speak of love per se, but loneliness is a prominent theme ..



4. Never took the time -Akon
This one takes the cake with its neediness.
Akon practically cried his heart out with this one.



Love ..

Whatever I have seen in life doesn't really let me believe in love, just like I don't believe in religion. (Trust me, I'd love to be a believer. Being a skeptic is a highly unrewarding and hollow job.)

All the same I do respect true believers, be it Love or Religion.
Was browsing the net at random and came across this awesome post. Do  have a look. :)

Do you wear your heart on your sleeve? ..

Kids, let me give you a piece of advice which, if taken, might spare you a world of pain later.
Never trust anyone blindly.

No matter how much you share, no matter how close you come, never give someone your everything. Cuz the moment you do that, you give him/her the power to destroy you utterly and completely.
And you never know, he/she just might ..

Then, no matter what you say, no matter what you do, things will never be the same again ..

Remember, these are not words written in the throes of emotion. They are the outcome of cool, collected thinking.
If these words seem negative/defeatist to you today, just keep them  in your heart. A day will come when you will remember them.

In this world of thieves and liars, I pity the fool who puts his trust in another man ..

Love is spelled S-A-C-R-I-F-I-C-E ..

Another poem I wrote a long time back. Hope it strikes a chord with you. :-)

The songbird named Love, oh how sweetly it sings
Longing to feel, the wind beneath its wings
But alas, your desire, you rarely ever gain
Sometimes, for someone, you have to smile through your pain

After all, Love and Loss, they go hand in hand
Brothers they are, like waves and sand
The thing that you love, go set it free
Your loss, your pain will make it last for all of Eternity ..

Our Story ..

On the first page of this story,
Our future seemed so bright.
Then this thing turned so evil,
Was too surprised to even fight.

Angels have their wicked schemes,
And you take them to new extremes.
But you'll always be my loveliest find,
Even though you've lost your mind.

You're just gonna stand there and watch me burn.
But that alright coz I love the way it hurts ..

P.S. This is not an original. It was heavily inspired from "Love The Way You Lie" by Rihanna and Eminem. Just changed the point of view and some lines.
Kudos to Eminem and Rihanna for such an awesome song.

A BIG Thank-you and a small request . .

Blogger has introduced all these delightful tools now which enable you to see which posts are popular with the readers and which are not. If not for these, I would never have figured out the likes and dislikes of you, my beloved reader.

So, I would like to make a humble request. When you people read any kind of a post (be it blog or news articles, whatever), please do try to leave a comment. It helps the writer understand that people are actually finding these articles interesting (or vice-versa).
Needless to say that it is also a really huge morale-booster. :-)

And thank you for taking the time to read my articles, my thoughts. It has given me no small pleasure to know that people find them interesting and are willing to listen to what I have been saying.
You people are my inspiration, my reason to keep writing.

My heartfelt thanks to each and every visitor to this lil' blog-o'-mine. :-)

One Winged Angel

This is a poem I wrote some time ago. Just felt like posting it here since I've been missing for a while now. Hope you people like it. :-)

The one-winged angel aspires to fly
And reach the heavens high in the sky
Alas, he would but for one thing
He was cursed to have but one wing

So he stands, tall and proud
Watching his brothers ascend the clouds
'Tis his cross to carry on and on
Till all of eternity has come and gone

He holds to his faith
That he can change his fate
With sheer strength of desire
He can swim the fiery oceans of fire

The one-winged angel looks to the sky
And sees all his loved ones waving goodbye
Tears spring to his eyes, but still he smiles
Waves back and says, "See you after a while"
