Dog eat Dog world

Have you seen that stray dog in front of a bakery or chat stand. You can notice that dog for whole day from the time the shop is open till it closes, the dog never stops wagging its tail and asking for food.
I used to wonder why, I mean doesn’t the food given by so many eaters or even the owner sometimes, fill its stomach? Finally the only logical solution I found is, as it only gets food in tit bits, it gets digested so fast, it is always in the state of half-filled stomach.
After thinking this the first thought in my mind was, isn’t this the same thing we do with life. We are wagging out tails in front of life, for the tit bits it offers us and we are never satisfied, we always want more, there is no end to the wanting.
Likewise think if life gives us all the luxury everything it can give, we are hungry for love, care, attention, time, like domesticated dogs waiting by the door waiting for their masters to come home and play with them.
If life for some lucky persons they get everything in life, love, family, money, success everything, then there are other people who greedy and jealous enough to try to hurt, steal etc. from them. Just like how the dogs fight over food.
It is true when they say “it’s a dog eat dog world out there”. Funny thing is no matter if life gives us anything or nothing we can’t change being a dog in front of it. The only entity to which we are entirely loyal is our life. Let’s make it worth living
(This is my personal thought, not intended to hurt anybody’s feelings by writing this)

"Best Friend"

It was a mild evening with light breeze, the clouds were threatening a rainy night. And as usual Rakshith and Vani were seated at their favourite coffee shop, at their usual timings, having their usual cup of coffee and unwinding after a long day at work.
Neither ever found to fill up all the silence with chattering they were as comfortable with silence as with words. Sometimes they preferred silence more than words. It was jolt from a silent pondering when Rakshith's phone pinged.
He smiled apologetically while he looked at his message. As usual after checking his message he scrolled his facebook timeline and chuckled. Vani as usual knew he would do what he did and asked, "Who said what?"
He set his phone down and said, somebody has asked a question "What do you mean by "best friend"?
She smiled while sipping at her cup, both enjoying the companiable silence and the hot cuppa in hand.
As was their habit, today was her turn to pay for the coffee and his turn to…

Confessions - 10 doors

She stood watching the door he had just closed walking out. For a moment nothing worked, her brain, her body, her mind, her conscience.. even her breath had stopped. Then she took a long breath and everything started at a time. The explosions in her mind, the devastation in heart, the thundering thoughts in her brain. All she could do was stare at the closed door. 
Pain pierced through her soul like a hot knife through a wound. She struggled to breath, all she wanted to do was howl at the fate which made her stand here and feel this horrible feeling. But she couldn't produce a sound, even call his name. To call him back to her. 
She collapsed on the floor as her knees buckled. Held her midriff in a embrace so tight. The coldness of the situation was settling there and spreading everywhere. And finally a tear broke the barriers and rolled down. 
The gush of tears which flowed down her cheeks were unnoticed, as her heart cried out. The edge of the pain dulled to a throbbing ache in her…

Confessions - 11 - seasonal friend

Journal entry - 372
I wonder what power he holds on me. I could never stop his arrival or his departure. He breaks my heart everytime and I swear I will never let him ... Everytime.
He comes when he wants, when he feels lonely. I asked him "Did you miss me?" and he replies "Once someone is yours, you will always  miss them"... I smiled within myself, only to notice later he never answered my question.
He has an alluring charm that I can't escape and to make matters worse when he is here I don't want to escape. And if you think for a moment that he pampers me and spoils me crazy while he is visiting. You can't be more wrong while I rectify you that he never opens his heart enough to show it to me. 
Oh he cares, I know he does, atleast I feel he does. Is that the only thread am holding onto?? 
I wonder how will he respond if he reads this. But then again I know how he will respond, he would say "everything is an illusion, the emotions, the love, the care …
