Create a Star


Loving the stars is easy. Anyone can fall for the stars that shine and steal the eyes away. But something that is truly hard-won is loving the night, a night that is dark, mysterious and doleful. The real challenge is in walking into a room full of darkness with your eyes closed and heart open, no rose laden carpet awaits you this way, you’re going to knock at the door and be answered with absolutely no answer, and then you have to keep your pride aside and break the door, feel the walls of the room that are cracked and broken, feel the tears dripping from one end of the ceiling, feel how no one ever bothered to walk that path,  but you have to walk around and run your fingers through the abandoned walls, embrace all its flaws and pour every bit of your love and emotions into the cracks, paint it with the colors of your unconditional love, with all the glitter and shimmer you have. But the long felt pain leaves such a deep  impression onto those walls that it would be hard for it to accept your colors but you have to keep trying one coat after the other and then would come a time when the colors would stay and the walls would hug you back. And it’s going to shine, shine like your star. Yes your star, a star that will be yours with you or without you. You know why? Because it shines in a light that is yours, you created it.

  2. Beautiful thought process,indeed the nights are dark but the one who experienced walking into dark can walk long miles in lights.Even its always a shine after dark nights and you’ll get the stars in night only never in lights.

  3. Aaaaah !! Absolute genius . Nice to see you back after a break.
    I just had to close my eyes and run my fingers through my wall, laden and cold with stories. This is an all new perspective to my love for darkness. How I feel to not see for once, and feel it while i imbibe and get absorbed into the melancholy hidden in those rough, cold- as rough and cold as my own within.

    I can see myself , in hues never imagined before , melting and merging into the dark walls and forging myself as murals of all emotions never expressed, in all shapes and directions …. That, what you wrote is art, like the murals…
    Absolute genius . You are a star !! ❀
