It’s time dedicated to visiting other bloggers/Instagrammers/BookTubers, leaving a comment or two, making new friends and fostering positivity among the members of our amazing community.

Hello everybody! I woke up so early this morning to cope with the other #LoveAThon mini challenge.

I haven’t done this before. I’m so excited to share my self composed poems.

Hope you will like it.

This is a love story.

A little something different –

It’s a kind of a funny story.

Like a flowing river,

Everything leads to You.

 Every day

Since you’ve been gone – 

The distance between us &

All the bright places,



Shatter me.

P.S. I still love you.

The one and only – 

A thousand pieces of You.

Happy reading!
