Best friends

Best friends, they call themselves –

All of the same feather;

Delving deep

Into the bottom

Of the insides

Where happiness lingers,

Care blossoms,

And pain vanishes,

Planting lies

Into the soil

Of trust.

Life is full of smiles,

Love, care, hope.

Life is a celebration,

With the like-mindedness

Of people around.

Until one point, when

The truth is finally let out

In the open

To let know

That the most sacred place

Within the heart

Has been tainted

With betrayal,

With the untold truth;

The way things turned out

That has damaged

The capacity

To trust any person

Ever again.

Trust built upon time

Again and again

The little spider 

Keeps trust

And builds its web

Thinking it would,

This time,

Be safe,

Because the walls 

Are now stronger —

But alas,

It never knew

That the wind

Had always been

And will always be

Stronger than the web,

And that there is no way

The spider can live

In peace.


— 

Trust – there’s no way one can live in peace unless one doesn’t trust ANYONE in this world. Even those who we think are close with, eventually show you who’s wrong.

Run away from me

​As bright as lightning

You now get to see.. 

The truth bared out 

From underneath.

For, I’m an unwanted scar

On the jabberwocky’s flawless skin;

I’m the scorching heat

That the fire emanates from within.

I’m only a tiny black patch;

Sucking up all of the light left.

I now rule; the sun is now conquerable;

Mountains are uprooted and blown adrift.

I’m the chunk of cigarette you just smoked;

Waiting to see your last chronic cough.

I’m the abandoned venomous needle in the dunes of Sahara.

Waiting to prick you dead and make off.

I’m the edge of a sword;

I crave blood.

I’m buried in the pit of hell;

To swallow you up into a world of dread.

I’m like a white snow flake;

Beautiful, yet bringing the deadly chill of the Arctic.

I now rule; the sun is now conquerable;

Mountains are uprooted and blown adrift.

As clear as crystal,

Did I reveal myself to you.

All you need to do now is run far away,

Or until the end, remain true.

And now, sunlight is all you will see.

And the world is finally left to be.

Faith: the K-Drama

The Daily Post asked me about the last time I really had faith in something. Whether I had faith in anything, I myself do not know. I however, have written this post to discuss with you people about something my best friend strongly loves… having faith. And there’s this K-Drama, which, according to her, had portrayed the meaning of ‘faith’ really well.

Faith… In this drama, the Korean star Lee Min Ho is a General who’s supposed to take care of the King, putting his own life on the line. But, he also happens to make promises with his own life. And when he fails to keep his promise to the female MC, he’ll make her stab himself to death!

The story is all about one thing… faith. Blind faith. Something that cannot be found in real life. We all (K-Drama fans in our college) did see the drama. Most of us had labelled it ‘boring’ by then, and went on with our works… until my friend unearthed the Drama from the depths of her laptop’s folders and finally thought of watching it. Okay, maybe people still consider it boring, but she still finds a great deal of hidden meaning in it. She says she wants to meet someone as trustworthy as the General ‘Choi Young’ in this serial. She likes things like keeping promises with one’s life. She always tries to fulfil the promises she makes.

The Drama is mostly packed with action, but the whole blood-lust and vengeance shown in this drama will be compensated with the unending love between the two main characters. A love so pure. A love so gentle. A love full of… faith.

In the drama (it’s a fictional time-travel thingy), the female lead character is from the present, who is kidnapped by the male lead character to the past to tend to their queen’s wound and make her live. Since medicines of today are unmatchable, she finally cures their queen and would be about to go back to her own era, when the King issues an order that she shouldn’t be allowed to go back. He would’ve realized her value by then.

And because our warrior here, who had captured the doctor and who couldn’t return her back, he’d promise her he’d somehow assist her in going back whenever the gate to their era opened. After this, the series shows us olden-day Korea – Goryeo.

And twenty two chapters or so later, in the end, the doctor (female MC) would’ve made up her mind to not go because she loved this warrior guy, but she needed a few doctor-ish tools to cure him. He’d be badly injured. So, when the gate opens, she’d leave her love dying, and run to the present era to grab her tools. But when she returns, the gate would lead her not to the era in which her love had been dying, but to an era even earlier… perhaps a century before where her love lived. Or rather… had been dying.

And what does she do? She waits till the gate opens again. After it does, after many years, she walks right in… and to the era where she was craving to be. And this is where the faith part comes in. Her love would be waiting for her… even after she had run away at his time of need… and this is why the story is named that way. Faith, indeed.

And if my friend gets to know that I wrote this, she’s going to kill me. Because this series is her most favourite one, and I have written it with just the teeny bit of enthusiasm that I could muster while thinking of this drama. She would’ve preferred something better, I know. She would want me to add a few sentences from that drama… she would’ve wanted me to write with extra passion… that’s how much she loves it.
