I sat there, my brown eyes wet,
tears trickling down my cheeks,
I sat there, my place set.
I don't know what to do or say,
for I'm spellbound
and that too in a negative way.

An interrogative thought arises,
It says why I chose to go through all this
when I could choose the easy way.
I don't know what to do or say
for I'm spellbound
and that too in a negative way.

She was sad, stressed and betrayed
praying and pleading,
she wanted this eternal pain to go away.
Communicating with God,
now, he was the only answer to her building pain.
Whenever I look at her, I don't know what to do or say
for I'm spellbound
And that too in a negative way.

Even through the painful invisible wounds,
She had a faint smile plastered on her face
reflecting her strong positive aura,
Inspiring me to stay strong.
I don't know what to do or say
for I'm spellbound
But now, in a positive way.

This is my first self composition. Of course I tried to become Shakespeare before this (even though my poem is typical Sylvia Plath) but  I realized, poetry is not just a few lines with rhyming words. Poetry is a combination of feelings and emotions, which cannot be expressed in other ways. I could never complete my poems. This is the first poem I've ever completed.

Hope you liked it. :)

The Paris-Bombay Collection // Karl Lagerfeld

The whole collection was stunning: pearl beaded Nehru jackets were layered over sari-draped dresses and slim leather churidar trousers. I loved how diamonds were hanging from the tikka's/matha patti's (Ornate Headpieces) The jewelry was really paid attention to since it is such an integral part of our culture. Also, I noticed how Lagerfeld played with the footwear. Models were wearing differently styled flats in each foot. It was lovey to see men in Nehru jackets with a "Pagdi" (A long piece of cloth used to drape the head) draped on their heads.
 I saw the video and the pictures -both. I bet you all must have seen the pictures so here is a LIVE sit-at-home kind of Fashion show for you -

A Closer Look : Red Block Heels

I have been swamped with so much work and that is why I haven't been able to post. I bought a beautiful pair of red block heels a while back that I haven't gotten the chance to style... yet. Hopefully I will come up with something good and post it here.

These suede heels are so comfortable that I can literally run a marathon in them. Hah!
