Over and over again

Over and over again
I have patiently heard people talk their hearts out.
Over and over again
they have failed to listen to mine.


Deserve what you love, love what you deserve

When you decide to not settle for something less than what you deserve, be ready for life throwing tantrums at you. You will be shown every now and then that what you are expecting is more than what you deserve; that it is far beyond your reach. You will often end up crying at your inability to prove that you do deserve what you want. You will break to such an extent that you will give up more times than you can imagine. Hold on. Be patient. When you know what your worth is, when you know what you deserve, love it hard and move towards achieving it no matter what. One day you will not just deserve it, you will show the world that you were meant for it. Life has an amazing way of giving you what you deserve, you just don’t have to give up untill you achieve it.

Deserve what you love, love what you deserve.


I am missing my own self today.
The me in me is lost somewhere between the dark woods of the past.
I still see a ray of light out there
but I am too afraid to follow the lead.
The shackles of my own deeds have made my feet heavy and numb
and I can no longer move out in the sun.
I seem to have made peace with my
own darkness and these demons have taken over my true self.
The self that I had loved for a long
and the self that I so badly adored.

From my debut book ‘…and you say you know her?’

๐Ÿ”Š Sound ON
Don’t meet me at the horizon.
It’s too far.
Instead, walk into my life tip-toeing
and meet me somewhere under a banyan tree; talking to the wind, playing with the grass and humming your favorite song.
I promise to sing along the same melody
until it resides within us
like the blood in the arteries.

Be on your own

Be on your own,
ask someone else for nothing.
For when you get you complain;
when you do it yourself,
there is no one else to be blamed.

Fantasist is 200 posts old and I haven’t formally introduced myself till today. So here we go.๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ[Long post alertโš ๏ธ]

Behind Fantasist is Shweta Tale, a girl who believes in the power of dreams and aspirations. I am a software engineer by profession and a poetess by passion.

I am often asked how do I find time for writing ๐Ÿ“ or painting๐ŸŽจ. The answer is quite simple. If you are really passionate about some thing, you will make every possible attempt to find time for it ๐Ÿคนโ€โ™€๏ธ because that brings you happiness, content, peace ๐Ÿ•Š๏ธ. When I discovered my passion for writing, I reduced the amount of time spent on unproductive things ๐Ÿ“บ; I began to plan out my day ๐Ÿ—’๏ธ. I do not post frequently because I do not want my content to be some irrelevant words presented before you. I would rather want it to be few lines that make you resonate with them.All my work that you read, like and share is the result of hours of brainstorming, minute observations, serious experiments, acute learning, days of practice, and many failed attempts. ๐Ÿ™…

Sometimes it makes me feel bad that we still live in an era where art is struggling to find respect ๐ŸŽญ. I get appreciated less and criticised more for being an artist and I know others out there are going through the same. But I have those who have been with me right from the start and those who have joined me recently for another good march and I am here because of you all. ๐Ÿ˜‡

Few years back I never thought I would be able to share my work or be liked for it. Today, here I am writing to you in this 200th post. โ˜บ๏ธ I have come a long way and I still have miles to go. It is all possible because of the support I have gained from you all and I will forever be grateful for it. Taking one step at a time towards a dream of publishing another book before you, this is me, Fantasist, signing off for the day.โœŒ๏ธ Thank you again. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ
