Confused of what the post title means? Don’t worry you’ll get to know what it means at the end.

*Me : Manny, I told you to fix the mike
Manny: But Wazowski always ran away with that cleopatra looking girl
Me: Manny you’re from Ice age , stop using Monster Inc references*
So where were we. Yeah this post. This post is kind of special to me, because its partially a tribute to Chester Bennington, Linkin Park’s frontman, the first band I started following. “Breaking the habit” was their first song and then I happened to get a chance to perform their song “Numb” at a concert and I never looked back. Linkin Park holds a very special place to me. My prayers and love is always with Chester and his family. So, I decided to write a free verse poem using the names of Linkin Park songs.
I’ve been Talking to myself
Voices Crawling From the Inside
But I am Not Alone
The Messenger my companion
Reminding Nobody can save me
I guess he was halfway right
There was a time when I was all By myself
With my Hands held high
The Battle Symphony echo
While I craved for One more light
But I was trapped and Victimized
In a hollow Castle of Glass
My tears Heavy with Forgotten memories
A New divide from my world
Iridescent sins and an Invisible Place for my Secrets
I am sorry for now and forever
I am tired Waiting for the End
Numb, Skin to Bone
Letters from you on Valentine’s Day
All ashes, as I burn it down
I am no more afraid of Sharp edges
It is a Good Goodbye
But In the End, as I Leave Out All The Rest
I will watch A Thousand Suns rise
Chester was more than just a singer to me. He was a role model, an inspiration , someone I looked upto, his voice had that charisma nobody did. Until now I am in a state of shock and disbelief that he’s no more with us but his songs will always live, his voice will be always heard, his stories will be told. A legend always is immortal.
The same poem is also dedicated to Abdelhak Nouri from Ajax Amsterdam whom I wish the speediest of recoveries and I hope him to be back on the pitch once again with his magical feet.
Now to the next part, couple of months ago I started this initiative called “Five Sentence Story Prompt” as a platform to encourage new writers to nourish their talent and skills as a writer and no matter what, I am really proud to be ( have been part ) of it. Yes you heard it right and first from (Not Charlie if you’re imagining the 2012 movie reference is being used) me. Yes, I’ve called it for quit. Not only from the prompt but from the blogging world. The reasons behind the same decision are personal and I wish to not share with you all and I hope my personal space will be respected. I am really proud of my team members from the prompt team and would like to thank:
3 Cheers to the best team anyone could dream of ( Hip Hip Hooraay ……..)
So this leaves us with one position up for grabs and the core team has come to no solid conclusion of who shall be my replacement but you can expect to hear from them about the same real soon. Without their continued efforts and your love and support this wouldn’t have been possible and no matter how much I thank you all for it, it just won’t suffice. (Cinematic tears)
So, Khap Khun Krap (Thank you in Thai)
I shall be up on wordpress for the time I figure out how to save all my works in another external source after which this blogpage shall be effectively taken down forever.
400 followers still seem like a lot I am leaving behind as I leave but I am left with no choice but to come up with this decision. So thank you all again for carving a better writer, a better person out of me.
PS- The title meant Goodbye in Thai in case if you haven’t Google Translate by now.
