~I Think Space Pilgrims Would Be a Better Name for Astronauts~
As I sit here and wait for the aeons of isolation to pass, I stare into the vast Infinite. It’s dark. Lonely. Yet my eyes water, as if in a stimulus to light. My eyes water, not because of the intensity of light, but because of the intensity of something else. Something huge. Something way beyond my capabilities to comprehend.
I feel infinitesimally small. Almost a drop, compared to an ocean. Here I am, *literally* the loneliest person ever, barely succeeding at survival, in search of a new home for us. I can see the little blue blob from here. A feeling of homesickness starts to flood in. No no no no no NO. Focus. Back to the blue blob. Our planet is on the brink of being invisible from here. It feels....... almost vulnerable. On the scale of the Universe, our planet might literally be nothing. Insignificance. A colony of tiny ants that live in their ant world with other ant beings and not a care in the world. We are a lot like ants, if we change our perspective.
Just like the perception of motion in different ways. I get awestruck as I realise how intricately physics is connected to philosophy. In the end, it’s how we perceive things, how something is good. Or bad. How we’ve formed Calculus and the Almighty All Seeing Being to comprehend the incomprehensible.
I say out loud, “Well, we literally are one helluva philosophical and dramatic species.” I laugh. If we think about it, everything we’ve ever done, every technology we’ve ever created, came from the heart. Science is all about emotions. Instead of lacking humane thoughts, rather it’s based off our need to understand, and function.
As I stand here staring into space, I realise that oblivion, like death is inevitable; that on the larger scale of things we don’t really matter (though we’re made of it); and that we’re a vulnerable and lonely planet, with no other life within a distance of thousands of light years; but what we do have is the ability to think, and create 7.6 billion different infinities of our own.
I wipe a tear off my left eye and smile to myself.
A piece inspired by an incredible art by @divcookie
Do check out her original post and wonderful feed. ———Last night, aphrodite
lifted me up her hips, when I was drowned in my layers and perhaps
she did not care about the
dimple on my cheeks as
I did for the ones on her
she turned to drop the
curtains off the mirror,
which never saw me undone
I said, ‘wait! Let me dress up.
‘Oh darling !’ She said.
That bulge which you
could see there,
Is out of happiness
in the way you made
yourself step out when
your mind said, Stop!
And Oh! that happy
another one ,
Right there between your
thighs, is thanking
you for standing up every
time you fell down.
And look at those marks,
Making estuaries on your
inner arms, smiling their way
down your legs the way you
did, devoid enough reasons.
Do you see? she said,
Laying her head on my laps,
Looking in my eyes as she looks
at the stars,
‘All those places where nature
Finds its home again and again
Is letting you know how it never
gives up on you
Because darling you are my home
I never want to get devoured of.
In you I find grace
In you I find my race
As I stood up on my toes
dancing to the same rythm
which had them trembled——Anshul Dixit .
Certain people enter our lives unexpectedly and we are forever changed by them entering it. Those are the ones we never wanna let go💖

The dying hours, your diminishing face
Forgive me now, my soft glow, my heart
To leave you, is to leave wisps of myself behind.
in the overgrown part of the garden,
in the call of an unwary cat,
our hearts on the porch chairs,
child footprints on the doormat.
an open vista of blue,
that stretches till mehrangarh.
the playground that knew
a brimful of laughter and chit chat.
All mine, but not. Not mine, and yet..
So long, I have kept you safe and warm,
within the omniscient phone's memory bank!

✨18 on The 18th🐒✨
Thank you for all your birthday wishes & To those who are in my life I thank you for all that we’ve experienced. You take of a piece me of wherever you go & I of you. I love you all! ❤️IM 18 now 🙃😛 gods really blessed me🙈❤️😩 —Miyukian A.
You didn’t hurt me,
You treated me so well,
Better than I expected,
It just hurts me it didn’t work out
and didn’t last like those happily ever afters,
I guess it wasn’t in our fate
for our hearts to collide,
But I am glad you will still be
my best friend by my side till the end of time.
Thank you for showing me what love is.
Best Wishes x

You mustn’t put your heart on your sleeve for just anyone,
Not everyone deserves that,
Keep it intact and safe for someone who won’t abuse it,
But will respect and appreciate it,
Keep your heart protected for the meantime.

I won’t let hate take over me,
I loved you then and I love you now,
I could never hate you,
Yes you did a mistake,
but if I use that mistake to hate you,
Erase every memory where you did right by me,
Destroy any sense of love and kindness within me that makes me realise myself,
Then that would be me detatching
from a sense of self,
I’d lose myself forever.
