Do you feel unsatisfied when you go to bed?


33400292_479119205853967_2287398821916835840_n

Help me to hold my thoughts,
These silent stares at the wall
Quiver my thoughts,

Help me to contain this feeling,
So that I don't go to bed with a void inside my heart.

Teach me how to be patient,
Teach me how to shove this emotion off

I have been trying to live a life to its content.
Why does this hollow grow alas?

Do you feel this want,
To do something more on this day?

Teach me how you satisfy your heart
For me, I leave what's left of this day and me
To my dreamy thoughts.
Wake me up when I am satisfied,
As It's just the dreams where I don't hide.

[ We have this feeling inside our heart where we tend to expect some return from a day. We often don't know about the limits and actuality to our desire and wants. And we end up expecting more from a day in return which we are not able to fulfil.
We end up feeling bad about this loss as if there was something which we wanted to attain this very day and we were unable to and we end up feeling bad about it. We go to bed with a heavy heart of not attaining something which we expected from this day.

Here is a catch to this and an answer which I wanted to give my teenage self.

"Take it slow"

There are things we end up expecting from us and we end expecting so much from ourselves we can't really complete in one day. We shouldn't end up with a heavy heart, Instead, we should better plan out our tomorrow to take one step closer to what we want from ourselves. ]

Silent Farewell Sucks, Isn’t it?

33041169_878383665700088_4539765944947310592_n.jpg
If promises were just mean to be broken,
Why you have been waiting for so long to
torment this heart?
To give up on this story which we started long back.
You were free to do that before, Isn't it?
Or maybe you wanted to check.
How much this heart can endure. 

Isn't it true?
We get attracted towards someone and end up doing all kind of promises just to win him/her over and fall in love with us. While we ourself don't really know the depth we can go to keep our words.

It hurts when you can't reason a person before dumping. You got issues, That's fine. In that case, you at least got something to hold against the partner. A grudge, a sense of hate that things were not rolling over the way it was expected.

But what about when one morning you just wake up after having a beautiful conversation with your partner and you realize that's the last conversation which you had. There are no more message on your phone, no social notification and you are in no way able to contact the person henceforth.
What happened?

Were you dumped out of nowhere?

Silent farewell is the worst to bear with. Because you don't really have anything to hold against it.
That brings to the inference of this post. 
  1. Don't really portray yourself in form of promises and lies which you can't keep up while falling in love with someone.
  2. By any chance, if you are planning to dump a person. Have some guts to do that in person if you can. Reason them why it can't work. Why you want a break from a relationship which was going just fine. If you were able to reason your sane mind. Why can't you reason him/her?
  3. Don't do the same stuff with any future relationship of yours.

Say that you love her (Crush Story | Friendship)


Muster up some courage
Say that you love her
She said out of excitement
When I told her about the
girl I had a crush on.
“I was just hoping to save this friendship, to run an extra mile by not disclosing that I had fallen in love with her.”
I smiled!
Maybe I should.
I spoke in a low voice.

I had a difficult time making my teenage self-understand that you have to say that to her. There is always a choice in saying and committing that you have fallen in love with her or just deciding to be friend zoned forever. The friend zone part which was self-implicated upon me by myself because of the fear of losing someone dear from life.
There was a battle inside my brain, a tug of war. Most of the time my fear won over what my heart used to say.
But finally, I mustered up the courage to say that to her.
It was beautiful. My heart felt light as if it was something which I wanted to say for so long.
And Finally, I did.
( Dedicated to all the people out there who are still gathering the courage to commit their love to their crushes. )

How to avoid Instagram Shadow Ban?

How to avoid getting shadowbanned on Instagram?

So you started using Instagram as a social medium to promote your business and found that the #hashtags which you were using before are not working right now. You are experiencing less engagement on your post than before.

Guess what?
Instagram has come up with a new logic which shuts users accounts to surface if they continuously use the same hashtags over and over again. You will not receive any update from Instagram stating that your account is shadowbanned. You can just infer by taking a look at the engagement level on your post and the way it gets degraded.



You can follow 4 steps to avoid getting shadowbanned

  1. Avoid using automated app which is actually not legal to use.
  2. Don't use the same hashtag over and over. 
  3. For a Business account, check the insight and see that whether you are getting any user from hashtags. If you notice that you are not getting any visitor you might want to reconsider changing the hashtags.
  4. Don't use any website to identify the shadowbanned hashtags. Because the hashtags which is shadowbanned for me will not be the same for you.

Are you a victim of Instagram shadowban?

If you have been a victim of a ban, share with everyone in the comments what happened to you and how you think it might have happened. Has the ban been lifted? How did you do it?

Please help each other out if you know any more information.

Set me free from these Shackles ( Erotica Poetry | Romantic Poetry )


Set me free,
From these shackles which are wielding me down
Make me feel home again.
.
While I sit on top of you
Holding onto your chest
Strip me off from this burdens
Which weighs me down
.
Drench me in your love
Burn me down from within
For its mere body at the display.
.
Tread your hands over me
To the extent you can.
.
Calm me down so that
I am worn out to my last breathe.
.
Let's make love in a way that 
It turns people jealous in bed.
.
.
