Her Fearful Symmetry 

If you’ve read The Time Traveler’s Wife then you’ve probably heard of Audrey Niffenegger. Her Fearful Symmetry is Audrey’s second book and no, its not like her first. For one thing, it has ghosts. Yes it does. Not the spooky kind that gives you goosebumps but the friendly ones that play scrabble with you on the Ouija.

But Her Fearful Symmetry is not just about ghosts. And that is what makes it different. It is about human relations, about how they are perceived in different points of life, about how you fight to get back what is yours and about love. And it is in this perception of human relations that it is similar to The Time Traveler’s Wife.

I wouldn’t say it is an amazing read. But it is worth your time. And it can make you count the little blessings you have in the form of siblings.

Dear Struggling Actress

Dear struggling actress,

This one is for you.

I know you’ve tried so much,

And its ended up in vain.

Your ethereal reverie is been replaced,

With feelings of suspect and doubt.

You have lost kith and kin for they say,

Acting is not part of a cultured clan.

You are on the verge of giving up,

But don’t, because I know your power.

Dreams don’t yeild so easily,

But I want you to keep trying

And to push your limits so much.

Then have a bit of faith as such;

Mixed with some wishful thinking.

For you are one of a kind, darling,

And you have this in your blood!

Rendezvous

Love always finds a way back!

Let’s meet again,

And pretend it was chance.

On the opposite lane I’ll find you,

While browsing shop windows; 

We’ll look at each other in silence,

Amidst the soaring roar of traffic

Then with some dramatic air,

And a profound urgency,

I shall walk to you;

My eyes, poise still deep.

You shall extend your hand,

And me, shake it;

Deliver a ‘Hey’ or ‘Good Day’.

And keep shaking for a while,

Until the familiar warmth;

Starts bothering our hands.

Then we shall remain silent,

And won’t be bothered anymore;

‘Cause Honey, I’ve realised,

Silence speaks better.
