Too many entries left 'eternal depression' depressed.

I entered the woof contest again this week. With my poetry the The Eternal Depression.

But this time there were too many entries - much better than mine. This made me realize that - I need to improve more on the way I write and put in some strong feelings in my poetries like the winners did.

The details of the contests and the winners are -

Raised Aspirations

Glimpses of the next era are felt,
We are moving to the next level.
Feelings of dismay are overruled,
I am dancing to the tune of the moon.

Eyes of light have finally opened,
Hopes of joy have just begun.
Feel like the happiest of all in this world,
With no sorrow to follow and bad times decreased to none.

It’s the time when someone raised aspirations of coming in this world,
It’s the time when a new born has shown its first presence.
It’s the time when we both have glittered in smiles,
Now our relation would finally make some sense.

Disturbed and imputed mind would finally be no more disturbed,
Troubled smirks would finally reach giggles and laughs
Life would take a new turn on its own now,
It’s the introduction of that all awaited special one.

A new kin is going to be added to our life,
I would be answerable to, and noticed by someone now,
There will be someone awaiting for me at home in another few months,
Who, along with my better half, would complete my whole world.

Delusionary Departure

Wandering over the thoughts I started receiving,
The good times we had, and the best days we spent together
It made me smile and wanted it to last long,
Till this painful thought pinched me to bother.

Among all the sweet thoughts, was this one which haunted me,
Haunted me till the dawn and the days thereafter,
Didn’t leave me till the time I started to cry,
Wept, regretted and my feeling started to shatter

The thought which disturbed me so much,
Was that you would leave me one day or give me a divorce,
It left chills and vibes all over my body, that
I would have to end my love, when I actually started to want more.

I Love you Sweetheart! And don’t want to end this relationship,
Want to see you and my love, grow old together
Having no end to it, and only unbounded love,
No hatred or any other bad feelings, but just the relationship that would matter.

Finally Poetic Architecture wins the "I love your blog Award"

Yesterday, while scrawling through my comments I noticed a comment from Kavita (My Top & The best commenter) which read –

“Hi Sanjay, I gave your blog an award, come pick it up at my blog.”

To my surprise my blog received the same award - I was craving for from so many days. I used to see this on every other blog, but always thought that my blog wasn’t worth it yet. Kavita did made my day, further she also described my blog in the most amazing words ever. You might want to check it out on her blog - A little of this, and a little of that.

Poetic Architecture. Sanjay an excellent poet, displays his written talent in a well put together poetry blog. Labeling himself as an optimist, his talent shines through his words. Take a peak, you won't leave once you do!

Thanks a million Kavita, you surely made my day.

Not to be mean enough, this award comes with a rule “You submit an award to seven blogs: If you receive an award, you do the same, and send that reward to at least 7 other bloggers. So go ahead, spread the love, and make somebody smile. :)”

Therefore I spread my love and would like to reward the following:

Style Unlimited: One… most extremely catchy blog which would catch your eye the minute you log in. The icing is the posts she writes. Vridhi, a Fashion Designer, details all her designs and the fashion tips. She endorses to have worked with couple of reputed designers. Walk in her store (in the form of her blog) I am sure you would love what she has to sell (though she doesn’t charge anything in exchange, except time).

Craving for Fun: The first time I read the name, it gave me ideas as - do you need fun, come over, the next minute it changed my perception as the author craves fun. The magic of this blog is spread only once you read its posts. Raj, patient and optimistic, loves to talk about his past experiences. He sometimes makes them sound funny and sometimes pitiful. Take a look to know more.

Way to Jobs: One blog which believes in the philosophy “sharing knowledge is comparable to sharing your lighted candle”. Aditya believes in “Help and Get Helped” while he writes about the openings he has come across the company. Take a look who knows you might find a right job match for your career.

Holy Trance: This blog features her personal feelings in the form of poems, posts and what not. I always thought she was a cheerful girl who always took things so jovially. After reading her blog (from the post 1) now I know Asha who is “Always Smiling...” does also have some feelings and is surrounded with some really painful past deeds. Take a peek to have the same consensus.

Ramblings from my wandering mind: Shilpa, one of my old pals, labels herself to be Impulsive, obstinate, opinionated, completely crazy and confused! Her writing basically runs around anything that holds her attention, Yes that surely means ANYTHING. But she always writes her heart out. Go ahead take a look and you’ll agree too.

Cherrie's Blogs: Amrita, a great writer, can describe even the smallest event to mean the world. Her writings contain the magic to grab your attention and to ask for more. Take a look at her writing to know more.

Trying my best, not to Bullshit: Already been part of one of my posts earlier, this blog steals the show by introducing two budding poets (Amir & Pragnya) who are actually breaking up. The conversation and the sad feelings undergone are all seen and felt. It just has a single poetry, but is in itself worth an appreciation.

Let me Love follows the foot steps of Tears...

After "Tears" topped the Sept 29 Woof Contest. I posted "Let me Love" as another entry.

This time I was a little shaky that it may not make it, as there were too many contestants who were competing to make it to the top 5. But Let me Love made it's way up in the Top 5 --- here are the details...

WOOF Contest – Top Picks:

Fiction/Short Story/Serial Fiction/One Act Play

Romeo - “A Boy of Doubt - A short story about a boy trying to come to terms with himself, and love.

Jennifer M Scott - “Goodbye Baby - A young woman tells her boyfriend she is pregnant, is he happy?

Henry Petrie - “Social Networking - A second-person account of killing time by trying to meet people over social networking sites.


Penelope Anne Bartotto - “The Moral - 100 words in haiku format on good versus evil.

Sanjay Chhabria - “Let me Love - Ever fell in love; had a crush or engaged in any kind of infatuation... If yes, then this is a must read.

The Eternal Depression

Sad are the feelings which pop in my heart,
Sad are the days which go by
So sad and gloomy on the situation I’m in,
That there is no person or a thing I can rely

Been bombarded with different thoughts,
Forced to hear and do things which are unethical,
No one understands my feelings these days
Have begun to curse the world and started betraying my life

The world has become the worst place to live in,
Don’t know where the destiny is planning to take me along.
Can’t leave or even think of discouraging the bonding so far acquired
Nor want to live it up and neither sulk in it lifelong.

Passing through the stage of dismay,
Where everything feels so artificial,
Family, friends, relations and the other such associations
Have started to seem as if, they were completely unreal.

I am so sad and distressed in this feeling of love and the game of my heart,
Neither am I able to survive nor commit suicide.
I am so obsessed with this state of depression,
That would die one day of this mental homicide.
