Amorphous

She was almost free, Her form turning hazy. A permanent memory, Slowly fed to normalcy. She was almost there, Residing in his head. Yet now her secret lair, Began to wither instead. She was never confined, With unpredictable ways. And little did he realise, That she had gone away. -Nameera. Sometimes we deliberately cling on […]

Impulse

I often wonder if crazy, Happens only to few. A reality so damn hazy, And the aftermath; anew. As long as the strings, Of sanity are attached. The thoughts that bring, Darkness wouldn’t hatch.

The bliss behind loneliness

For the most part, the walls didn’t close in on me. But the dancing shadows on the ceiling did become my only pals. At times my breath wasn’t enough to keep me alive. My mind almost gave up yet this blood pumping device inside my body helped me through. A soft tap, tap, tap like […]
