A Fortunate Prisoner

readers blog fortunate prisoner

She is a lover of my mind.
She exactly knew what I am made of.
She makes an art out of my chaos and brings forth order.
She anticipates my every fall and picks me up.
She takes the shattered pieces of me and makes me whole.
She hears the cry of my demons and makes a symphony out of it.
She heals me with her angelic heart and lights me up with a smile that is brighter than a thousand suns.
she imprisoned me forever to be a captive of her never-ending crave for Chaos.

    6 Subtle Signs Your Relationship Is Over, Even If You Still Care For Them

    Subtle Signs Your Relationship Is Over

    Sometimes, love just isn’t enough.

    I know it sounds unfair, but so is life. We have all grown up on the concept of ‘happily ever after’. But the more we face reality, the more we realize there is no such thing when it comes to relationships.

    You can love someone as much as you want, but there is no guarantee that you will be spending the rest of your life with him or her. Love is a crucial ingredient for a lasting and meaningful relationship. However, we tend to forget that it’s not the only ingredient. And that is perhaps our biggest mistake.

    Is Love Blind? Or Do We Just Keep Our Eyes Closed?

    Love can blind us so much that we often fail to see the splinters and hairline cracks that crop up slowly…those subtle signs your relationship is over. This is why love can be dangerous. We often choose to ignore the initial signs that not everything is perfect and convince ourselves that it’s all going to be okay.

    We just need to try a little bit harder. We just need to love them a little bit more. We just need to compromise a bit more than yesterday. We just need to hide what’s bothering us for a few more days. We just need to ignore the pain a little bit more. Everything will work out just fine. You’ll see. They always do. Or do they?

    No. We Don’t Want Our Hearts Broken

    We never want to end a relationship where we have willingly invested our emotions and ourselves. That is perhaps the most unsettling part…a reluctance to letting go. So we ignore the signs the best we can. And then comes the red flags, the glaring warning signs where we feel heartbroken at the realization that we failed to make the relationship work. Now it’s all over. And we are all alone..again.

    But if you can spot the subtle signs your relationship is over, may be, just may be, you can give your relationship a reboot. These signs will help you analyze what might go wrong down the line by taking a deep look at yourself and taking charge. Understand that it is not about finding faults in your partner or pointing fingers. It is about pulling your socks up and re-positioning yourself to make sure your relationship has a better chance at survival.

    So without further ado, here are some subtle signs that your relationship is headed for splitsville.

    1. You Don’t Talk Anymore

    And by talking, I mean about deep conversations about life, about your beliefs, philosophies and your feelings. You don’t have meaningful long talks about how you feel about each other. Realize that the way you communicate can affect your relationship. Ask yourself, do you guys talk about the basics of life? How the day went. What happened at work. How your boss is an A-hole. How you are planning a couple’s vacation this winter. How excited you are to watch that movie you guys are excited about. Simple daily conversations about each other, friends and family, co-workers. But most of all, conversations about your feelings.

    Communication is the very core of a good relationship, including the one with your own self.

    Meaningful and deep conversations allow us to know the person our partner has grown, matured and evolved into.

    Otherwise you are just stuck with the person they used to be. Enough with Netflix and chill. Now it’s time to start talking about what actually matters.

    2. You Don’t Touch Them Like You Used To

    No, I am not talking about sex. We often express our love and affection through subtle physical gestures like holding their hand, putting your hand on the small of their back, stroking their hair, hugging them, a simple kiss on the cheeks, caressing their legs, and holding their face softly while you kiss and pulling them closer. These small things can often mean deeper things in a relationship. Every touch you make creates a connection and transfers energy to your partner.

    It is normal to not have the same passion of being physically close all the time like you used to when your relationship began. As we get more comfortable with each other, life starts to happen. That’s fine. But if you now feel differently when you touch your partner, then it’s one of the signs your relationship is over.

    A loving touch can heal a lot of wounds and nurture a relationship by making us feel loved, safe and warm inside.

    You can’t play a guitar without caressing the strings fondly. Can you?

     

    3. You Feel Indifferent

    Does your relationship still feel engaging? Have all disagreements completely disappeared? Does your partner’s behavior and actions matter at all? Co-existing without being engaged can be a relationship killer.

    When both partners are agreeable & indifferent instead of passionately arguing about things they feel strongly about in the relationship, it’s one of the signs your relationship is over.

    Fighting all the time is definitely not a sign of a happy relationship. However, simple arguments helps to develop a deeper bonding among couples. When you are not engaged or present in the relationship, it’s a clear sign that not all is well in your partnership. This is where communication comes in.

    A real open honest conversation about how you both feel about this relationship at this current moment. Ask them how they are, what is bothering them, if they want to share something. Instead of jumping to conclusions, have a heart-to-heart discussion showing that you care. Listen to them and understand what they are going through.Things can change faster than you realize. Start talking.

    Does Your Lover Actually Love You?

    does your lover actually love you

    In spite of your lover telling you the three magical words, have you ever wondered if  your lover truly love you

    Sometimes we become attracted to people and date individuals who treat us poorly. I once dated a woman who would shame me for acting needy. She would tell me I was crazy, and it made me feel humiliated and worthless. It sucked. But as I pointed out in Attachment Theory Explains Why Your Relationships Suck, our attachment needs cause us to be insecure when they are not met. They cause us to behave in crazy ways, because we’re trying to find security.

    Unfortunately, some individuals don’t value our needs. Sometimes they neglect us. If you’re an anxious person, this can cause you to frantically dive into a toxic relationship, unconsciously drowning yourself in a love that can make you hate yourself later on as you invest more and more in the relationships, only to get a little back in return

    Getting our needs met in a relationship is complicated. Due to conflicting emotional blueprints, using vulnerable communication doesn’t always immediately solve a problem.  But there comes a time in every relationship where you will decide if the woman is actually going to help you get your needs met and make you happy, or if you’re going to have to move on

    In order to find a woman who can do that, it’s helpful to learn how to judge an individual’s response to your vulnerable communication. By doing so, you can immediately tell how important your well-being is to the person that you are seeing.

    Ask yourself:

    • Does your significant other address your concerns, or do they shame you for bringing them up? Do they dodge the conversation altogether?
    • Does your significant other find ways to make you feel better, or is she staying on the defensive?
    • Is your partner responding to the facts, or actually getting in tune with your emotional well-being?

     

    The Right Person will:

    • Address your specific concerns. They will not shame you for feeling insecure and they won’t dodge the conversation.
    • Find ways to work with you to make sure you are getting your needs met. They’ll make sure they are getting theirs met as well, rather than being defensive.
    • Let go of the facts and address the underlying issues.

    If the person you are seeing is responsive and genuinely concerned about your happiness and security, then you’ve found an awesome partner.  But if your significant other makes an effort to dodge important topics, shames you for feeling the way you do, or acts defensive then you should take that cue as a warning sign of where the relationship is heading.

    The one trait I look in a partner is vulnerability. Because when push comes to shove, both of us need to show up to the table with our needs, and work with each other in order to get them met.

    I Make This Solemn Promise To You

    I make this solemn promise to you:

    To be your lover when you need to be loved,
    your doctor when you are ill,
    your army when you go to war,
    your umbrella when life rains down on you,

    The Winning Game

    When playing is never enough

    Chasing trophies and glory

    Showing others that you’re the stuff

    Supposedly better than anybody
    Eat, sleep, conquer, repeat

    Is your catchphrase, your living style

    Being first makes you worthwhile

    The competition, instead, is beneath
    An addiction with a certain cost

    Consuming desire from your shadow

    The more you win, the more you’re lost

    After each and every afterglow
    A pattern transforming mankind

    Poison injected again and again

    Thanks to Ego, you’re blind

    Faster goes the voracious train
    Soul, witness of the downfall

    Believer of the second chance

    Always as the indulgence

    To wake you up when it’s nightfall
    Flagellation which can be over

    Flaws are making us whole

    Time to audition for another role

    Starring acceptance as your lover
    Ego, Soul, an internal battle

    Victorious is the one you feed

    Will it be the wolf who dismantle

    Or the wolf engaging the deed?

    Nefelibata

    I have this strange fascination with the moon, not the one seen at night but the one was seen at 6 a.m. just as the sun is about to come up again to wake the world. The rain at early mornings where The drops of water lightly touching the roof makes me feel like I’m drowning in the safest sound.

    The darkness, not the one found inside my room but the one where everyone is too afraid of to explore to even notice the wild things it beholds. The world at 3 a.m. when everybody else is asleep and I feel like I could do anything I thought was impossible before.. like walking down the street naked.

     

    I like things that people aren’t likely to see or even bother to take a second look at.

     

    and maybe that’s why I am drawn to you.

     

    I am enamored with the idea that I get to keep beautiful things for myself… even just for a few minutes.

     

    and if everyone else feels that it’s selfish, then I’m selfish because the world seems to get more of you than I do.

     

    You- the most beautiful thing I have ever known.

     

    You- the person I am totally, utterly, pathetically, and tragically in love with.

     

    You are a lot of things, my darling.

     

    The forest fire waiting to consume everything in its path.

     

    The disruptive storm in my calm,

     

    The disaster waiting to happen.

     

    You’re the cause of all these things.

     

    and surely–

     

    You’re the only one who can cure them.

     

     

    This is the kind of strange I can live with- loving someone who could destroy me infinite time more.

     

    Love does a lot of things to someone. You lose your other senses but it’s pretty much worth it.

     

    You’re worth it.

     

    Again, by the infinite time more.

     

    Wild things are not easy to love but you took out all the complexities with your dashing smile.

     

    Broken things aren’t so easy to handle but if you want, I’d help you to put everything back together- not in the way that they were before but close enough that you’d still have an old piece of you to hold on to.

     

    darling, I’d do just about anything for you.

     

    but I think I’m a fool, for thinking you’d ever feel the same too.

     

    and so I do think that there are stranger things in life than loving someone who’s tainted and flawed and a little broken.

     

    It is the part where you love someone without them knowing about it. It’s the part where you adore everything in silent. It’s the painful part of giving something and not expecting anything in return…..

     

    because you love that person without knowing how or when or why.

     

    you just… do.

    How Each Zodiac Sign Acts Like When They’re Secretly Falling In Love

    How Each Zodiac Sign Acts Like When They’re Secretly Falling In Love

    How your zodiac sign operates when falling in love

    Falling in love is one of the most beautiful feelings that can ever knock on your door. In fact, until and unless you have fallen in love with someone, you will not get to experience the true essence of this life.

    As per astrologers, our zodiac sign determines not just our personality, partner compatibility – but also how we behave in different situations. Talking of which – it definitely determines our love language too.

    Well, it is time to discover the enchantment of orientation the stars have in your love life who make you act the way you do in front of your lover.

    How Each Zodiac Sign Acts Like When They’re Secretly Falling In Love

    ARIES

    (MARCH 21 – APRIL 19):

    The Aries are, surprisingly, quite vocal about their feelings. They are the ones who take an initiative to get to know the person for whom they develop feelings. They love to spend time with the person in the open, to laugh together and to do all the crazy stuff, that you can think of, together.

    Now that you know how different people behave when they are in love, I am sure that you won’t miss the signs next time and live a lovely life with your lover!

     

    TAURUS

    (APRIL 20 – MAY 20):

    The Tauruses are inherently ruled by logic naturally. And when falling in love, they will do with with all added precautions. When attracted to someone, they will do so in a way to safeguard their heart giving them a deep insight into the behavior of the person.

    They are not typically the knight in shining armor straight out of a dreamy romantic novel to woo you right off the cuff. They will go slow with their moves and test you till you give them good reasons to open up.

     

    GEMINI

    (MAY 21 – JUNE 20):

    The Geminis are very sweet. They are very shy in front of their lovers and that is exactly what gives their feelings away. Their behavior itself is indicative of what might be hidden in their heart and their eyes do the talking on behalf of their hearts.

    Geminis are very clear cut, straightforward when it comes to romance. If they like you, it will show in their eyes, in their words and will be exuded in every sense of their being. Your part? Just signal an affirmation and you’ll know for sure.

     

    CANCER

    (JUNE 21 – JULY 22):

    The Cancers are really ‘happy go lucky’ type of people who can hold their reserve and yet be lively. They would woo you with sarcasm that you make you crave for them even more during their absence and intensify your feelings for them.

    Cancerian’s emotions are super powerful. Their actions speak louder than their words. While they might seem composed on the surface but they are actually beaming with love and adoration for you. Every single time they care for you, their intentions of spending a lifetime with you get more intensified.

     

    LEO

    (JULY 23 – AUGUST 22):

    The Leos are protective of the person with whom they are in love. They make it point to let their lover know that they are committed to the love of their life and do not hesitate at owning up their feelings even at a public place.

    Leos are also very possessive about the person they are infatuated about. They will show subtle signs that they are trying to flaunt you as ‘their’s’ even when aren’t yet in a relationship. Sexy? Ain’t it? Those strong arms around you will spin magic.

     

    VIRGO

    (AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 23):

    Ah! These people are masters at playing ‘hard to get’. The more chill the Virgo gives, the higher is the chances of him/her being so deeply and hopelessly into you.

    They pretend to be least bothered about the person who is actually the apple of their eye. It is their ignorance that draws their lover towards them and this binds them together eventually as a happy couple.

     

    LIBRA

    (SEPTEMBER 24 – OCTOBER 22):

    Libras have a great difficulty initially in accommodating a person whom they love their lives. They fear that things might not turn out as expected and this is what makes them analyze a lot before inviting a special person in their lives. However, they cannot ignore the fate of nature and eventually become a happy couple.

    Thank You For Letting Me Walked Around Being Starved For The Smallest Crumb Of Your Attention

    And She Said…

    You know what you always do that is driving me crazy? It’s when you don’t respond and each time I bring up something you don’t want to discuss, you shut up or just say one or two words then ignore! You are so evasive with my questions. You don’t want to discuss what’s bothering you. You draw yourself back. You seem like undergoing a rapid combustion then you are being emotionally detached and not responsive or just get distant! And that seems to appear I nagged so often because I feel so bad for not having the words out and the actions I needed…to lessen the resentment I feel. You have never tried working with me for the solutions we both can live with.

    You see…

    Each time you don’t respond- I feel unloved and not being cared for. I want you know that when a woman like me may appear to nag, please remind yourself that the intention of just wanting to talk to you is not to control you… I want to communicate and have the cord connected to you for emotional closeness.

    That each time you hold back from showing your love, I feel sad. And again, I want you to know that I feel so damned rebellious and it brings out the worst in me. I want you to understand that this is not a pressure and please don’t feel being annoyed, it’s just that I don’t want the passion to disappear.

    Each time you are evasive and distant, I feel you don’t love me enough to be there for you. And I’m so scared that every time…I see and can even touch you but I can’t feel you because, emotionally, you vanished. Each time you draw an emotional wall and try to have a gap between us, I am trying to built a bridge for that to feel close to you again and I wish you know that. Try to communicate with me, don’t just to go numb. Don’t just slammed the door shut on my face. I don’t want to become chronically depressed and living in constant fear for not bringing out the best in me.

    Well, you can’t just be a jerk thinking I’m such a doormat. It’s true, I have allowed you to do everything you wanted. I allowed you to take me for granted. I allowed you to keep pushing my limits. You never did try to feed my heart with the attention I needed and it dried up! I’ve tried to communicate but you were just never there to listen. If it’s just a matter of breaking the relationship that would be one thing, but why can’t you communicate with me? What’s taking you so long to admit it?

    I am sorry because you have turned me into everything you hate. An irritable. A cranky. An impatient. A hypersensitive! I sacrifice too much of myself in the name of love and, still, I ended up love-starved and resentful.

    I really am so sorry to say this so bluntly: You shoved me away with your indifference. You never hold on me real tight. You let me walked around being starved for the smallest crumb of your attention. My love was taken for granted. You instilled in my mind that my presence was never valued and appreciated. I knew, I am just another ad-hoc lover for you and this time around, I decided to stop chasing a dangerous kind of bullshits. Let’s not prolong this masquerade because it depreciates me while you get away with murder!

    The first time we set our eyes to each other and finally kissed, we called it a coming together of like temperaments in an unlikely world. And today, let’s call it quits!

    Open Letter to my Abuser/Lover - Mind Talk

    My Love

    If you could give me a thousand reasons to smile, would you still choose the one reason that trumps them all and makes me cry anyway? I do not play the victim well, but you leave me no choice. It is part of my healing that I paint you, the most wonderful person I have met, as the oppressor. You gave me the brush.

    These tears are for you, so take them. Bathe yourself in them to cleanse your soul of the darkness inside. Take the salt and make it one with the earth, then split the atoms to create something undeniably powerful. And once all the drops have found their target, like pollen grains between plants, I want you to be happy. I want you to be satisfied, fulfilled and content with yourself, as one of us needs to be.

    This pain is for you, so make it to into strength and keep it. They say that abusers relish in the screams of their victims. I cannot scream anymore, my vocal cords will not allow it, so I give you my pain to enjoy instead. Doubtless, it will be difficult to take upon yourself, and possibly kill you inside as it has done me, but I am sure you are more than capable of taking what you dealt out.

    My heart beats for you, so feel it. It’s a good feeling; a feeling of life and I am fearful it is my last sign of life too. I want you to become one with the rhythm of the beat so that your heart may beat once again too. I know your heart has suffered and possibly stopped, so I am doing this so that you may again be filled with the love I have. The love that fills me and allows me to forgive you each day, and even more so when you beat me.

    My knees buckle for you, so accept my greeting. I am not one with the submissive, but your timid dominance depletes my power every time I see you. I kneel for you to show my respect, awaiting another verbal blow to my crumbling self-esteem. Even when your words are kind, they make my muscles tense, bounce around my head and eventually find a way to bruise me inside. Your words of hate make me bleed internally and have caused oedemas of irreparable damage. I take this flooding and find another reason to breathe, for tomorrow may bring change.

    And finally, I bow my head in your direction to show I have given up. Take my reluctance to fight back as something of an act of strength. Your hold over me is greater than any other and I am bound and bloodied from your love. It’s enough to make me leave, but that can never happen. Every time I have tried, you have chased me down and taken me for ransom again. Siphon my energy, love and power to make yourself stronger so I am not tempted to run again. It’ll be easier this way.

    I hope that my words sink in and you may see what your actions have done to me, both inside and out. It isn’t enough though. You see what you do to me and find it a joke, laughing in my face as you hack away at my soul. You never used to be like this; you were heartfelt and wonderful. But knowing that you managed to catch me, your ego has run away from you and I am afraid of you. Of what you can do to me. And that isn’t love, not anymore.

    With love,

    Your Love

    Date A Man Who Loves You More – MIND TALK

     

    Date a man who loves you more. Meet him young, at a time when you’re not old enough to realize how precious he is. Fall in love carelessly. Start to think he must be the one, begin building a life with him. Become entangled with his family and him with yours, believe he will be the father of your children in later years. Date a man who loves you more because he will love everything you hate about yourself. The man who loves you more will rub your feet when you’re tired and take your cousins out for ice cream because he is simply that kind of man. He will abandon his plans to come rub your back when you’re sick without you ever having to ask. The man who loves you more will allow you to grow as a person without taking space. He will be patient, kind; he will know when to apologize and when to be quiet. He will never yell. He will laugh at your jokes and find you beautiful, even at your worst. The man who loves you more will love you entirely, unconditionally; he will follow you anywhere and do anything for you.

    As you grow with the man who loves you more, ignore the creeping sense of boredom. Ignore it because it is selfish, it is unbecoming, and you know you should be satisfied with this perfect man. Ignore it because you watch the women around you, your friends, your sisters, your co-workers, and you know they all long for the man you have. Ignore the melancholia and the longing you feel every time you watch a couple fight with passion, with anger, with fire. Count on your fingers the number of fights you’ve had over the years, and consider yourself lucky without really believing it. Ignore the nostalgia you feel for moments that have never existed. Ignore it because you know passion is fleeting, passion is mercurial; passion is not something you build a life on. Passion will not raise your kids, it will not pay your mortgage. When passion fades, you tell yourself, you are left with nothing but regret. Ignore the slow leak of emptiness filling your gut when you kiss him, because it does not belong in your life. It does not belong with this perfect man who loves you more. He is dependable and with him, you know you will lead a lifetime of contentment. You will travel with him, you will push him towards his goals. You will have wonderful memories and photo albums. You will celebrate milestones with pride, you will grow old holding his hand and raise balanced children with him. When your children fall in love, you will smile and hope they find someone who loves them more, because it will guarantee them the satisfied life you have led.

    Do not date the other man because the other man will never give you the stability you know you need. Stay away from the other man because with him, you are unreliable. The other man will never be there for you with the same dependability you have come to expect. He will challenge you and push you to question everything you think you know about yourself. The other man will love you, he will love you in ways that make you abandon every certainty you have ever had, but he will not help you keep your balance. Just when you think you have figured that man out, he will disorient you, you will be winded, you will not be able to breathe. Date the man who loves you more because the other man will never need you. He will miss you when you’re gone, he will secretly be broken, but he will go on without you because he does not depend on anyone. This man is treacherous, you cannot trust yourself with him.

    When things are good with this man, you will be euphoric. You will be the best version of yourself. You will look in the mirror and find you are beautiful. You will be the luckiest woman in the world, and you will believe it. You will tell him you love him and the words will explode out of your heart because it will be the first time you have ever encountered such irrevocable truth. He will say it back and mean it, and you will feel like you can never be close enough to him. You will lose yourself in him, and he will lose himself in you. Stay away from this man because your happiness will be fleeting. When things are bad with him, he will fight back. He will not be patient, he will not soothe you. The other man will be infuriating. He will be selfish, careless with his words and at times even cruel. He will try to inflict as much pain on you as he himself is feeling. He will not apologize and he will push you to your limits. With this man, you can expect the dizzying agony of passion, the blurred oblivion of apathy, the delicious comfort of despair, the addictive misery of loneliness. You will tell yourself that it is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all, but in that moment of utter hopelessness, you will not believe it with absolute conviction.

    Who’s waiting out there for me

    I paint her lips and then her face
    And then I see her smile
    The smile I see all night and day
    And not just once in a while

    I quickly paint her brows and nose
    And then slowly paint her eyes
    Deep and silent place of love
    The one where heaven lies

    All black and long I paint her hair
    And lose myself just there
    Her face is painted subtle and divine
    Just like a simple prayer

    I said myself I’ll love her like
    No one has ever before
    I’ll Keep her happy and make her smile
    And then maybe some more

    I rest my brush and wipe my smile
    And open my eyes to see
    There’s no picture there’s no girl
    I’m just talking to me

    I can’t paint her like I want
    And then simply compare
    I’ll have to know and talk to her
    To be honest and fair

    For I’m no Prince to choose and say
    That’s how she should be
    I’m just a guy with a simple heart
    And that’s how I’m going to be

    So I let her choose and give her space
    To see if I’m any good
    If that’s the way she finds me nice
    Then that’s the way she should

    I drop my brush and wipe the paint
    And open my eyes to see
    I simply have to love the girl
    Who’s waiting out there for me
