Expectations evil?

The wise says that expectations in a relationship is the recipe for disappointment, but I earnestly believe mutual reckoning is the bedrock that help flourish love. At the end it is not the expectation that is wrong, but the lackluster display of emotions that diminishes love.

Her Myopic Thoughts

The irony of my love is hard to fathom, 
for you assumed silence
when I was weaving dreams for you,
keeping you in my prayers,
holding in the fold of my heart,
and showing you with copious ornate
of my earnest love.

But the day I confronted you
on your pretentious quietude
you spoke.
Alas! You turned rogue,
discarding all my yearnings
suddenly at once,
putting words on my mouth
that I never said,
and misconstruing my feelings
with the convenience of
your myopic thoughts.

Pretentious Silence

I couldn’t understand her silence 
the flurry of emotions earnestly needed an explanation

the love laced words,
the poetries depicting her as an ethereal bliss,
and display of such undeterred belief
seek an anchor to rest

Silence couldn’t be an answer to true love

And when I confronted her for once
she spoke copiously
Sadly, the pretentious silence was suddenly gone

Love only in fairy Tales

The traumas from the past,
the calisthenics played by the dogmatic societal norms,
the charade she putatively need to display,
the ostensible voguish of pesky pretentious love
alas the insignia of pure love is now available only in fairy tales

Video on learnings from Bomber Mafia

This video is culmination of my learnings from the Book Bomber Mafia. I am summarizing it below 
- Experiments in labs vs. reality
- Dogma beliefs often blinds us
- leadership trumps all
- What is misery for one could be a boon to others
- Time changes everything
- History never credits the people who abated major devastation
