If you win, enjoy it as if it's your first time. If you lose, like it sometimes is, enjoy it... as if for a change. History has been made for tennis history this weekend. Matches we have been waiting for, and they certainly did not disappoint! Saturday, featured a sisterhood rivalry between Serena (No.2) Williams… Continue reading Grace in Losing… and Winning
Amidst it all, just smile. Smile. It'll pass. Trust me. Pain is never gone. But after a time, it becomes tolerable. You need YOUR pain. It makes you WHO YOU ARE.
Man from ManVsLoneliness actually had 10 questions for each of his followers yesterday. In response, here are my answers. It would have been easier to place them in the comment box but I decided otherwise. So, while the roudy people in the living room are making my life miserable, let me share away. Man's Q&A: 1. If your… Continue reading Man’s Q&A
When the cows go off on their own, the grass grow tall. And when the stranger came back to, no one was pleased enough to offer him a chair. But he sat down anyway, because that's just how the stranger is. Respect begets respect - and education taught the man to better let things run… Continue reading The Stranger
Not that done with sports related stuff just yet. Currently writing this in my room; away from the television and I'm just watching the live results via Google. I really want to watch the game, Nadal vs Dimitrov, but the people watching in our living room are so roudy. I don't get it. The match… Continue reading I Am Not Watching
Sports. Some watch it for the action. Others for the story. I watch it for the thrill of making history! Watching players battle it out in court is exhilirating. The tension, the pressure, the heat, the crowd, the opponent. I have always been a sports fan for as long as I can remember. Whoever said… Continue reading Tennis. Comebacks. Life Lessons.
As dark as the morning sky, that's how it felt when you said goodbye. It was a normal Tuesday, you left with no note, car gone, vanished. A dark as nimbus, the clouds were, as if they knew I'd cry that day, they were preparing. For when the storm in me starts, they'd pour it… Continue reading Dark Goodbye
Players hitting that green ball, every rally filled with tension. Smash! Hit! Rally! Linemen and referee, there to oversee. Five sets for the men's category, three for women. Fault. Double-faults. Some of the terms, Errors. Forced and unforced, add it to the jargon. Singles. Doubles. Forehand. Backhand. Still don't know what I'm talking about? Hah!… Continue reading A Poem for the Green Ball Players
Straight to the semis! I hope Nadal wins tomorrow too.
Rafael Nadal (Spain) wins his last match yesterday to the Gael Monfils (France). Three sets to one, in a four set battle for a spot at the quarterfinals. He is now in the quarterfinals for the 2017 Australian Open. A very tight and gripping match. Both athletes' athleticism clearly showing as both of them struggle… Continue reading Nadal, also in the Quarterfinals!
So, this is it guys. I finally have my first piece for my year-long conversations. I have dedicated a separate category for this for ease of access. Your critiques are very much welcome. Thank you! Enjoy the chocolates! Hers: I don't really know if you're healed... because broken things never mend entirely. But if you're… Continue reading I Don’t Know

Nothing says action like sports action. After watching yet another devastating and shocking defeat of both the current first and second ranked tennis players in the Men's Division, I was set on preparing myself for another defeat from the only dude left I would love to win this year's Australian Open. Good news! For fans… Continue reading The Legend is in the Quarter Finals!
I don't really know if you're healed... because broken things never mend entirely. But if you're holding back tears, just know I've been there too. I don't really know if you're lying... because we rarely talk now. And it's not like I'm complaining, but yes, I'm sad. And maybe glad. In the many ways you… Continue reading For A Clown
1: It's red. As dark as blood that drips through our veins. 2: It's blue. Like the sky and the oceans. It's appropriate too. Even the color is used to describe sadness. 3: It's black. The absence of light that kills all joy. Like death. 4: It's white. Everything colliding all at once. The overwhelming… Continue reading The Color of Loneliness
