I was running to catch the last train from the platform
I had magical things in my bag, you see
They had to be kept at home. I was running.
Unexpectedly leaped out the hammering box
It’s a strange one that has hammers for arms
It chased me down with an echo -
“Don’t succumb into unpleasant dreams
Swing with the rhythm of consciousness
Life is but one.”
As soon as it melted
Came the two-year old child
He had glowing pair of rubies for his eyes
And diamonds for teeth when he laughed.
In rhymes he spoke but made little sense
His beloved stones jammed his mouth
He started to cry
Finally whimpered and said,
“I wasn’t happy with much
So I cheated death and ate your share.
Now I am stuck in this world
where reality and hideousness fused into one
I despair for beauty, dignity and enlightenment.”
Twice the oyster clanked its mouth open
It sings the same lullaby all the time
It bit my finger as I ran harder, I yelled louder
But the evil followed me like a tempest
Belched out the same tune:
“Don’t let me lull you but let me overcome you
I will give you guidance but finally discard you
You’re the common cattle - jail your thoughts
Go go go and blend with the flow
Lose the autonomous self but don’t be left behind
Catch that train! I want to see you vexed.”
As I dragged and ran
the bag got heavy - it was ready to explode
I couldn’t keep up with the train
Because of all that load
It magnified the burden and was hard to confine
I threw it on the ground as I caught the train
my tribulations lessened - I was finally going home
I cried out like mad “sacrifice myself? Never again!”
The magic bag of fabricated sovereignty was no longer my world.

I probably laughed for a good 5-10 minutes..non-stop
I’m so saying this from now on
- Me: So remember Mush, money is love! Will $10 buy me happiness?
- Mush: hahah -- yah man oh wow yah
- Purna: I'm hungry
- Me: Remember Purna, food is not love.
So I have decided to write my Word of The Day specials from now on. It’s what makes sense to me in my little “Trina World” (that’s my other name btw). The word of the day today is: CHEESE.
Randomly go around telling people this and see what reaction they have to it. I do it all the time! It’s fun being cuckoo =) Also you can have a CHEESE party! Whatever you decide to do today, make sure you say CHEESE at least once. It doesn’t matter how or when you say it. Just do it! Cheers!
A new but familiar breath fogged up the glass. It was a blurry vision of something warm, protective and loving. It was you. I felt it stronger than ever before. The pull was compelling. It made me want to cry. I never felt anything quite like this. It felt like being somewhere where I have always longed to be. It was a feeling that I knew that existed somewhere else where no one was looking. No one was searching for. It was waiting for me. And you. A creation that resulted into the splendor of delirium and happiness: US.
Please hold me…and never let go. Never ever let go of this bliss. The fear is never ending, the nights always darker than what they seem to be. But I know that here my heart is safe and sound. Please hold on…even if you are my warm little side-pillow, I know it’s only you I can count on. Please hold on.
