It Came

It came like a soft breeze through the window, pushing past the purple curtain. Caressing my back it traced my flesh in a way that drowned me in melancholy. It came as a melody so deep. Imbibing in me an incongruous longing for the past. It came like palpitations as blood dripped from my wristsContinue reading “It Came”

The home away from home

My mother received a call from her friend yesterday. So, we’re at her place today. It isn’t grand but you can’t exactly call it average. Three chandeliers lined across the ceiling are intricate in design. There were other women already present when we got there.

Ruins

He had entered lost territory, a place where no man has dared to venture. The place was in shambles with walls smouldering into blackness where memories bled at night as she closed her eyes. The grey atmosphere filled his lungs with despair and a longing for the warmth of sunshine. Instead of a garden ofContinue reading “Ruins”

The tide

I stood by the shore gazing at a tide from afar. It took ravenous strides in my direction trying to get past the ocean of perseverance and will. With one mighty roar it rose high up, almost tearing apart the sky with its magnificence. But with an insufficient dose of will it lost the fight.Continue reading “The tide”

The forgotten muse

You said that we were like piano keys, indispensable to each other. There was no doubt that without you I could never be complete. But the melodies we were after could never dance along the same tunes. The music that kept us sane was slowly fading with the mist of growing distance between us.

A Mistake

It was like lighting the wrong end of the ciggerate and putting it in my mouth. A tinge of the lit end on the tip of my tongue left your burnt & grey flavor to cherish forever. It was like swimming in an ocean when I barely knew how to balance myself in water. YouContinue reading “A Mistake”

Little Things

A promotion this week, At a job you excel. The success you seek, Lies on your doorstep. A dinner at an outlet, With people you call family. Tonight you welcome all expenses, For money is the remedy.

Down the memory lane

Waiting for my fingers to type all that I remember about you, I find my fingers adamantly questioning your worth. What if you turn out to be another waste of ink, of paper & effort? I have trapped you in mind long enough. It’s time for you to go. You were worth my mind allContinue reading “Down the memory lane”

The pride of universal donors.

“You know, you’re a universal donor” back then I had little to no knowledge of what it meant but I’d brag around my friends & tell them how special my blood was. One fine day in grade 10 we had a chapter in Biology that included a small portion about blood types. It sparked enoughContinue reading “The pride of universal donors.”

Don’t get too close

Don’t get too close, You’ll either end up broken or break a soul. The greatest point of vulnerability for me has always been getting people to know too much about me. I’ve always been happy knowing less and understanding more about them. I want them to be the same way with me. But things don’tContinue reading “Don’t get too close”
