Angels that set the world on fire.

I see faces that stare into mirrors everyday, as they die,
I lunge those souls that breathed their last,
of surprise and thoughtfulness on to my shoulders,
and carry them to my abode of sleep.

But this one, I did not.
This one, stared at the mirror as she felt the monsters lurk behind her.
She looked at her face and smiled as though,
the monsters were going to gift her.
The monsters stabbed her with pleasure.
But she smiled on at the mirror.
I picked her cold body off of her blood,
and cried out “Why?”
“These monsters saved me from angels,
that would set me on fire,
And watch me shed my last drop of blood.”

Poetic rants.

Rants are a part of life. There’s nothing you can do about it. There’s actually something extremely intriguing about it. It’s how you do it that matters. Not why you’re doing it. Or even if there are opinions that conflict these.

So I found ways to doing this. And one way that really relieved me is either making poetry or reading. You can also find this on my Instagram.https://www.instagram.com/p/BXz7iuAFf69/

“Broken”

“Broken”- We’re all a little broken,

Broken in our own way,

But the last time I checked,

Broken crayons still color.
We’re all a little alone,

Aloned by people,

But you still have yourself,

To bring some cheer into your way.
We’re all a little hated,

Hated for our real,

But the last person I spoke to,

Told me I am loved.
We’re all a little jealous,

Jealous cause why not me?

But your time will come when you take chances.
We’re all a little joyful,

Joyful cause it’s life,

Live it and experience every emotion.

-Shashvathi S Hariharan

And then, she gave in;

Gave in her strength and stopped holding herself back.

She let those tears roll down her cheeks, those cheeks that had never been wet by tears.

As the water hit her face, she moaned. They collided and hit the floor

Invaluable and precious tears that could’ve shed for something better,

rather than this. – Shashvathi S Hariharan

“Strange”

Her soul was a strange one.

A mixture of the strangest, yet beautiful things.

Strange? What is strange? Strange  is falling in love with the unique things. Unique things that people don’t notice, notice the beauty in them.

She loved the gloom of the rain.

She loved the aftermath of rain- everything about it..

She loved books, the smell, the feel, the way she could escape reality.

She loved the eyes of people, the way each one could convey what it’s been through.

She was special, unique and strange yet beautiful.

She knew that beauty wasn’t on the outside,

It was on the inside, and the inside is what matters.

She was strange, yet beautiful on the inside.- Shashvathi S Hariharan

“Cared”

She just cared so much.

So much, for everything.

It was just part of her,

And that was why she got hurt.

People knew she cared, and they took her for granted.

She would bend down to give a hand and people would tread on her hand.

She knew she’d  have to change, but it’s easier said than done.

And then the day dawned, she’d had enough.

Sh told herself “Enough”.-Shashvathi S Hariharan

“Colors”

Our life is a surge of colors.

We are in ourself, a beautiful rainbow.

Have you seen a rainbow?

It’s beautiful! And, it’s made of a lot of colors.

Colors that depict beauhy of itself.

Sometimes, you’re a bright yellow, to light up someone’s day.

And then, sometimes you’re a pretty pink, just too beautiful to handle.

I’ma red too, too spicy and rude to be human.

But then there’s blue when you feel deep in the dumps.

And the worst feared- black.

I feel black, dark and lonely.

I feel alone.-Shashvathi S Hariharan

Extremes” and another one I didn’t name. Meh.

Have you ever noticed, sometimes in life you’re either gasping for breath either because you’re laughing way too hard or you’re crying way too hard. The extremes always leave you breathless.

*****†***†***********†******

Sometimes I wished life was a lot simpler,

But I have come to understand that,

If life decided to collapse, it would collapse gracefully,

And rebuild itself with utmost strength.

Strength, that will uphold it next time. -Shashvathi S Hariharan

Sometimes life has come to a point, where crying, talking or poetry don’t mean anything more.

She took a deep breath.

It would be the last adventure of her life.

She let her feet slip,

And she soared.

She felt pumped once and for last.- Shashvathi S Hariharan.

***********†***************†

And then silence prevailed.

They got closer and closer. And almost everything had come to order.

She felt complete.-Shashvathi S Hariharan

*******************†*****†**

That’s not all. I’ve written lots of other which I’ve misplaced and will take 84 years to find. So the next blog I’d probably get more.

A tip for over thinkers.

Are you SiCk anD TiReD oF OVerThiNking? Well, here’sthe solution for you…

Just kidding.

Well, yeah I do have a solution, but not for stopping it. For reducing it and being more reasonable about what you think. Or rather, OVerThiNk.

*Drumroll*

Music is the key. 

Put on headphones and start studying, and you will procrastinate. And as you procrastinate, start thinking about how shitty your day has been. Whatever music it may be, it’s gonna make you feel better.

If it’s Happy, it will give you good vibes and you know, get you to the positive things that happened today.

If it’s Sad, well, just cry it out. Make sure you have some tissues and some ice cream and the Air Conditioner switched on for extra effect. And if you’re a writer, take your journal and write poetry, or just write about the day with maximum profanity.

It it’s peppy, turn up the volume to the highest and jump around your room like a lunatic, well, at least till the neighbors complain what a noisy vermin you are. Or, just start laughing as though your crush just told you a joke. Yeah. I mean, just fake it. Laugh till your stomach aches, or until your younger brother comes to check on you if you’re okay.

Or if you want extra extra effect, complete all your work and go to bed like super early. And then, put on headphones and think. Or you could do the following things:

  • Cry silently
  • Scream into the pillow
  • Cry loudly, and wait for everyone to burst into your room, and then when they ask why, tell them “Nothing.” with a dramatic sniff.
  • Orrrrr, best of all. Take your phone and text your friend/ mom aaand …Rant your butt off. 

The last one has a lot of bonus points, especially if it’s your friend. Cause now they know what a cry baby you are.😂😂

Disclaimer: This blog has been written with a lot of humor. But that doesn’t mean it’s a joke. It’s just humor- ised so my readers can have a good time. And also, follow these without any shame.

 Also, to make you feel better, I do all of these. Be rest assured.

26 puns that are kissable.

You know you’ve failed life when you realize that you have failed to write a pun blog. And be rest assured, puns aren’t simple jokes that you just laugh at and move on. They’re beautiful jokes that are modified to make sure, they have two or more sides to them. 

If you know me well, you’d know that I have a spiritual connection with them. And I can relate to them on the highest spirituality level as possible. So, you have the authoritative stamp by the queen of puns. (Yes, that’s me.)

I know that’s a bad pun. I hope you can bear that.😉

“I know ju lying. It ain’t here yet.”


Gloomy days argon. Chemistrical puns are here​.

I energy. Positive energy. OMG. I PROTON.

What happens when you fart in an art gallery? It becomes a fart gallery.😫😂


Ran ran go away. Come again another day.

Can you change your mind, before getting a brain transplant?”

Are you stoned?

Then the dentist advised him to go to Mt. Brushmore.

Sure. Ring ’em up

And I love you a latte.

But they’re also down to earth.

And he’s getting roast.

Justin Bieber be like “What Do You Mean?”

Ice cube be like, I was water before, I just got cooler.

Don’t be shelfish.

Her voice was horse.

The pen said “You have a point.”

DAY- UUUUM.

Eggsactly.

And then the noodle shouted “You IMPASTA, get outta here before you get roasted.”

Dab some soap into your hands and clean ’em up!

“I feel- HIC!- woozy and- HIC!- cheezhy.” said the cheese.

Dumble.

Dumble Door

“Sho(u)cks!”

AANNNND….*drumroll* I love you guys a latte. Have a good daytrogen.

Okay, this is probably ultimate playlist and I know I probably left some of YOUR favorite songs. If I did, just notify me. And, BTW, I didn’t put *all* of my favorite songs in this either. I’ve only put some of my recent favorite most. So I would sure be making edits. Stay tuned.

You’ve changed.

He stared in the mirror. Three years. Three whole years had gone by. She’d gone missing by doing what he was doing now.

She’d stared into the mirror intensely. Thinking of all the hate she’d gotten that day. Her friends, her teachers, bullies, so much to put up with when you’re a teenager. And then, the next moment she’d just gone. Disappeared. She didn’t get sucked in or anything. She’d simply disappeared. 

He was her only true friend. He was devastated when he found she went missing. He’d tried doing the same thing almost a million times now. He thought he’d at least join her. No. It didn’t happen again. She was gone, probably for her own good. 

He just stood there crying. ‘Why did such stuff happen to people with the truest, kindest, and most beautiful hearts?’ he thought. ‘Probably for the good’ said someone familiar. 

Once he’d turned, something had struck him. He just stood there shook by his visuals. What was he seeing?? He stumbled up and touched the image.

Yes. It was true. She was back. Back, like nothing had happened. No change. She didn’t look any older. Just the same as she left, just more wiser. 

And then, they hugged, like there was no tomorrow. They cried tears, though they were out of joy. “Why? Why did you leave?? Where did you go??” he asked wiping away his tears. “Somewhere new” she said.

“What is new?” he asked. “New is new. Some change.” she replied. “She’s hiding something.” he thought. She raised an eyebrow as though she’d heard that.

“I’m not leaving you until you explain probably.” he said. “I have my restrictions.” she replied and got up to fetch herself a glass of water. “What’d you mean restrictions?? I’m your friend. You have to tell me. You don’t know what’s been going on here.” he replied firmly.

She was different now. She didn’t seem to care what people thought about her, though she knew. “Coming for shopping?”she asked, as though she’d just come back from school. “Yeah. Sure. You just came back from a place you claim as ‘new’. I need explanations.” he said harshly. “Sure. If you wanna become like me too” she said and immediately seemed to regret it. “WHAT DO YOU MEAN LIKE YOU?” 

She came closer. “I went through something for being who I am now. Wanna join too??”she asked threateningly. And then I was standing in front of the mirror and staring at it too. I couldn’t stop myself. And then I’d just disappeared out of that place like she had. This time, she was with me. “I can read minds. I can persuade people to do what I want. Join me. I am boss now.” she whispered into my ear. “No. I ain’t coming with you.” I mustered with difficulty. That was all I could manage. She’d changed. I was going to too. 

The glasses. (Chapter one)

I stood up and brushed the hair out of my face. I stumbled around for my glasses and put them on. I’d rolled off my bed.

‌I showered and dressed and headed down for breakfast. After breakfast, I decided to read a book, so I settled in my bed and started to read, and then, I dozed off, with the book in my hand. 

I woke up and rubbed my eyes. What was the time?? 2:00pm. What?? I’d started to read at 10:00am..I’d slept through for four hours…! No way! I wasn’t much of a sleepyhead! 

I rubbed my eyes and headed down. And then, I saw something​ and stopped dead in my tracks. It was something I’d seen before, no, I’d heard of it. I’d heard of it’s descriptions and it was exactly like how I’d imagined it to be.

It was a monster, from….GREEK MYTHOLOGY!!! It was a gorgon. But wait, this couldn’t be real. After all, it was mythology. And even if it were a gorgon, one of the three sisters, I should have turned to stone now.

I pinched myself. Nope, I wasn’t dreaming. My eyes could probably be deceiving me, I rubbed them and realized​ I wasn’t wearing my glasses. I literally stumbled up the stairs and put my glasses on. 

Nope, my eyes were playing tricks on me. There was nothing. No gorgon. No Greek  Mythology. And then, I forgot all about it, not taking it too seriously.

And then it happened again. I was running home, because I was really excited. And then I fell face down, gashing my chin badly and grazing my knees and hands badly. My glasses shattered and flew across the road. I slowly got myself on my toes and slowly limped home. And then, I saw it again. The gorgon was standing next to my doorway. I was already unstable and collapsed on the spot.

I woke up hours later, and found myself in my bed. My friend had got me back in bed. I slowly got myself up and looked around. There, my friend sat next to my bed squeezing my hands. And then, one more glance, there it was! The gorgon. It was back. It was standing next to my bookshelf and peering at the book I’d been reading the first time I saw it. 

That drove me crazy. I’d seen it twice. I screamed in horror, drenching the room with a shrill sense of excitement and horror. My friend, squeezed my hand so tightly, that I felt no blood running through it.

 “WHAT THE FREAKING HELL IS GOING ON???” she screamed into my ear. “That thing, it’s a gorgon… I see something..” I panted out pointing near the bookshelf. “THERE’S NOTHING OVER THERE.” she screamed back. I fainted, over again. 

I woke up the next day. I was alone. I stumbled around for my glasses. I always wondered why I had to wear glasses. I could see perfectly, even without them. 

I couldn’t find my glasses. And then, I remembered. My glasses, they’d fallen off, the other day and they were shattered. “Great. Simply great.” I thought. And then I stood up and collapsed. I slowly got back on to bed.

 I looked around literally swearing to myself, that one more time I saw a gorgon, I’d jump off the balcony. There you go. I did see it.

 Guess what?  This time it was sitting right next to me. It stared me in the eye. I just froze. Well, I don’t know if it was because she was staring , that I’d become stoned, or I was simply stunned and stoned.

The gorgon caressed my hair. I sat there gaping. I’d just fallen and bruised every part of my body,  and then my friend had fled thinking I was a mad woman, and then there was this gorgon here caressing my hair. 

I didn’t know what to do. Should I caress her hair too?? But what if the snakes lunged back..? I mean, her hair was just a bunch of snakes. “So, how are you my li’l sissy??” she hissed. “I’m as fine as possible. Though, I’m still weak.” I hissed back, but it wasn’t me. I wasn’t talking. Someone else was in there, in me, I wasn’t talking. 

“When you leaving this girl? I’ve had enough of her. Always screaming or over- reacting.” said Stheno​. I didn’t know how I figured her name, but I just knew it at the moment. “Gimme sometime. This girl has something up. She can see you when I ain’t awake in her soul.” I said back. 

“ENOUGH LOITERING AROUND MEDUSA. COME BACK AND JOIN US IN THE HUNT.” Stheno hissed at my face. “I KNOW WHAT I’M DOING, GIMME SOME TIME! I’M EXPLORING THIS GIRL. SHE IS DIFFERENT. SHE CAN SEE YOU, RIGHT IN THE EYE. I’LL FIGURE OUT EVERYTHING. I’LL SEE WHAT I CAN GET DONE FROM HER.” Medusa hissed back. And then, I had a blackout.

 I could see without my glasses. I could see a whole new world, and I could stare Stheno​ in the eye without turning to stone. That wasn’t all. I probably had Medusa using me for something.

To be Contd.

“T. W. L”

She came closer and stretched out her arms, and then she hugged me. Tightly. Then, she squeezed my hand, and they felt sweaty. I felt something drop in my hand.

 Before I could look, everything blacked out.

I woke up with a start. I found myself breathing heavily. I looked down upon my bed. A crumpled piece of paper was lying next to my hand. I picked it up and smoothed it out. “T. W. L” it said. I placed it on the table next to my wristwatch. It was my favorite wristwatch, and I felt confident and assertive when I wore it.
I pushed away my sheets and stood up and headed to the restroom. I picked up my toothbrush, washed it and smeared toothpaste on it. I put it in my mouth and brushed. Then, I stopped abruptly. Something was missing. I whipped out my toothbrush and checked if I’d smeared toothpaste. Yup, been there, done that. There have been times when I’ve forgotten to smear toothpaste. But no, today I’d done that. What was missing? I opened my mouth and stood there gaping in horror. 
My tooth. It was missing. My front tooth was missing. I gargled my mouth and whipped out the sheets of my bed. No tooth. I collapsed on the floor. And then, I saw it. The crumpled piece of paper. There was something new written on it. “Tooth.” I checked on my tooth. Nope, it was gone. 
I showered thinking of what a horrible day it was and how it could possibly become worse. I’d woken up with a start, had a nightmare and lost a tooth with no traces of it. How could my day possibly get worse..? 

After dressing up, I grabbed my wristwatch. THUD! A part of it fell. My heart skipped a beat. It was broken. Into two clean pieces. 

I broke out into a sweat and went for the crumpled piece of paper. There you go! “Wristwatch” was written below “Tooth”. I’d had enough. I called up my friend and explained to her I won’t be coming to school today. 

I decided to nap for the day. I was done. I crashed into my sheets and closed my eyes.

I heard laughter. It was cold and clear and dripped with consciousness of what was happening. I found the girl who’d hugged me sitting in the corner. She clutched the piece of paper I’d had all morning. Something else was written on it. “Life”

” T. W. L”

I woke up with a start. I was alive. The paper was gone.

What to learn from Greek mythology…? Also some ‘no- offence’ advise to the Gods..

After reading Percy Jackson with all those wonderful and intriguing prophecies and secretly admiring Athena and her daughter Annabeth, it’s simply hard to resist completely reading the Greek mythology…and there you go! I read Percy Jackson and the Greek gods and DUH being mythology, you are likely to be ridiculed by the story though if you ever manage to meet the twelve Olympians (hopefully not all at once, they would zap you off…you see they don’t like us mortals very much..) these would come in use..or you never know even in you practical life…these gods could just come disguised…either to spy or could be they’re just stunned by your beauty…

IMG_0315

Zeus, King 👑 of Olympus

⚫️ Just don’t chop your dads will ya..?
I mean, I started to get a little grossed out and sick seeing all these gods and titans zapping and chopping themselves. First, Gaia simply just gets pissed off with her hubby Ouranos and orders her son, Kronos to chop him up with the (first ever one, possibly)scythe she made, and there ya go..all chopped up, though his golden blood ichor did give rise to a bajillion other creatures. And sadly, that isn’t the end of it… Zeus decides to get back at his father for gobbling up his siblings(we’ll get back to that later)and there’s another chopped up dad..into a thousand pieces and cast into the deep pits of Tartarus.

– ⚫️ Stop gobbling up your kids, for heaven’s sake! Oh sorry, forgot the queen of heavens is in your belly..🙁
Oh gosh, Kronos, you just can’t keep gobbling up your kids, just because your dad cursed you..I mean, you deserved that..! Vlacas!! (LOL..feeling smug, 😏😏learnt some swear words in Greek…BTW, that means idiot) Well, at least in the end you barfed them out, I’m happy! Though I still think you need some personal hygiene..!

⚫️ Just stop tossing away your kids, just because they’re ugly!
Ugh.. I feel bad for the Cyclopes and the Hundred- handed ones, I mean Ouranos shouldn’t have just tossed them off into Tartarus because they were ugly! They would’ve made you some wonderful weapons..And Hephaestus, certainly, being tossed off Mount Olympus twice, by each parent…for being ugly and for helping your mum…uuughh

⚫️ Zeus, seriously? It’s time to keep track….
OF YOUR WIVES!! Seriously, being head of Olympus, you should be an example…Just, at least keep track of the number of wives you have..and ohh your kids too!

⚫️ Ummm, revenging has limits…
Hera, I completely understand your husband is a jerk, having so many girlfriends, breaking his promise and stuff, though I’d say you shouldn’t be so hard on his girlfriends though, just get a little easy, will ya?

⚫️ It’s best not to get back at the gods..!
Seriously, I mean it, anyone of the gods…they could just zap you off if they wanted to. And.. you know, these gods do tend to hold grudges a LITTLE too much..

⚫️Don’t get on the bad side of your grandmother
I mean, who wouldn’t get pissed off when you just chop off her favourite sons and throw them off into Tartarus..she would obviously avenge their “chopping” by sending giants and stuff, though you know, she should rest, after all, it’s just her grandsons and great- grandsons ruling, isn’t it?

 

IMG_0316

Ahh, I love Fan art….and btw, if I were a demigod I’d be child of apollo!!

⚫️We are never ever ever…
Doing a bad dress up! (I would put it this way, if I were Taylor Swift..LOL) Yes, the next fancy dress competition, if they tell you to dress up as Greek god say NO. (Like Meghan Trainor..oh gosh, lots of pop stars popping up…LMAO..SO MANY PUNS)
Yeah, the gods wouldn’t consider it an honour and  think Mortals have cute shrieks when they step on them, which I think is GROSS! You wouldn’t want to end up like that dude Salmoneus..he thought the people should honour kings first rather than gods, so he decided to trick them, he did a very LAME dress up as Zeus and went out and well, you guessed it! A jagged lightning split the sky and yeah, POOF!

⚫️You are never better at doing anything than the gods!
You never know, you could be,but you know, just stay grounded, all of us know Gods have egos bigger than mount Olympus, you don’t want turned into a spider or having your skin flayed, do you? You don’t want to end up like Arachne, a cutesy spider or like that satyr dude Marsyas, having been flayed alive..hmm you just end up with a sad ending just because you dared to make music as good as Apollo or weave as skilled as Athena..

⚫️ You won’t be needing any patrons..
Yeah, if you have two gods wanting to patronise your city, well, just don’t say no to both, they would combine to get your city to ashes, maybe, you should just run away, because that city and the people are GONERS. Yes, like the city Attica or Athens. Athena and Poseidon compete, Athen being wiser wins, she gave them olive trees and they loved it, and renamed the city Athens in honour of their patron. But hey! What about Poseidon? He gave them horses and they went for olives, obviously, though he destroyed the lower part of the city with a flood.

⚫️ Just stay away from Ares
I bet you’re like “DUH!” IF you knew his identity! Oh oh, it’s the god of war! I guessed you figured the rest, he is obviously mercilessly ,rudely, warly ,cunningly and perhaps accidentally ,godly. Yeah, he’s immortal and YOU’RE NOT!

⚫️Don’t watch any god turn to their real form
You’d DISINTEGRATE. Though, not likely you’d meet one tomorrow, just saying!

⚫️Fire, we’re lucky!
We struck two stones and then fire appeared, didn’t it? Well, sadly Prometheus doesn’t think so…he gave it to us, though Zeus forbid him to..! So currently he’s been chained to a rock and has a re-forming liver which would re- form everyday for an eagle to tear and eat..! Hmmm…GROSS

⚫️Gods don’t like human meat (though Zeus didn’t mind gobbling up his pregnant wife)
Yes, no messing around!! No cannibalism with the gods, duh! They’re gonna leave you with a curse for eternal hunger and thirst beneath a tree with delicious apples…like that dude, Tantalus. Well, you see he didn’t like his son very much, so he chopped him up for dinner, and the gods weren’t pleased, especially after resting a while in their dad’s belly!

⚫️Don’t escape death..
Yeah, don’t you think you can knock out death (actually, Thanatos, Hades’ lieutenant showed up.) and stuff him under the bed. Well, this dude, Sisyphus didn’t stop with only getting away once. After he got escorted to the Underworld after Ares rescued Thanatos as none would die in war, Sisyphus lied again and got away from Hades, and at last, Hermes, dragging him back to the Underworld, he got his punishment. He had to push this rich to the top of a hill, but the problem was, it kept rolling back again, ummmmm practically it was impossible. Nah, he couldn’t stop either, the Furies would keep checking on him.
Ugggh, that was sure, some super- GROSS and hopefully some useful learning about Greek mythology, and yeah just don’t try these stuff out…

I solemnly swear I am up to no good… ’cause I read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child!!🎆 🎉

1ecf78c05c16b0f564ada738a8dcd903Albus Severus Potter, who is destined to be a Slytherin, finds his cup of tea is NOT Quidditch, and is unlike his famous father, the Boy Who Lived, Harry Potter. He befriends Malfoy’s son, Scorpius who is rumoured to be Voldemort’s son himself. One day as Albus overhears a conversation between Harry and Amos Diggory he decides to get himself into some adventure with his BFF ,( that reminds me, Happy Friendship Day!) Scorpius. He wants to be like his dad, always into some fun and adventure, little realising that his dad was forced into adventure, not one who went looking for it.
‌They jump off the Hogwarts train and set out for an adventure with Delphi, Amos’ niece and steal a Time – Turner from the Minister of Magic, Hermione Granger’s office (guessed it right, she hid it in a bookshelf)
‌Anyone who messes with time, is certainly into trouble. They mix up things, make people disappear, change people’s character and worse of all ,bring Voldemort back to power because of humiliating  a wizard. They meet Snape, who is proud to find that Harry’s son wears his name.At last, the matters are put to rest, but the shocking revealing of Delphi’s parentage, puts the boys dumb founded. It’s up to the boys to save the wizarding world from falling into the powerful hands of Voldemort .
‌ I loved it. A must- read for the upcoming wizards of Hogwarts and the Muggles. Yet, I felt it didn’t have Rowling’s touch of those juicy words. It showed a little obviously that the book wasn’t her work wholly.
