Solitude

It comesIn parts,DrowingMe whollyWithin itsAbsence. -Nameera.

Innocence

It was but a flame, A tiny speck of dust. But once untamed, You ran out of luck. It knew no control, It’d perish for sure. It wasn’t a mere stroll, Against it you were lured. It began with a revolt, That dawns with age. You were a thunderbolt, Satiating youthful rage. As years went […]

Under the Crimson Moon

“So, why do you work here?” She hung her head & stared hard at the plate, with the burger sitting still upon it. He followed her gaze & realised that she hasn’t even touched her food yet. How long have we been talking, he wondered. “I had no other option” she broke the silence in […]

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 […]

My Umbrella

A very short story about religion, hate & differences ft. one of my favorite blogs.

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. Yet I constantly imagine, Letting sanity slip away. And giving in to a legion, Of underlying craze; if I may. I […]

A Conversation

It had a slow beginning, Struggling for time to pass. But the clock began ticking, And silence couldn’t last. Your hobbies and your job, Found a mention after long. For once, don’t be a snob, It’s alright if you’re wrong. Curious eyes open wide, As you narrate some tale. It was an impressive ride, Down […]

The Dark Side

I succumb to the walls, Retiring all my beliefs. My fears standing tall, Dance upon my relief. The ceiling is tainted, As shadows pirouette. Their tunes are painted, Along hues of contempt. This conjunction joining, Two different parts of me. Is a neat & willful catering, To a darker side you never see. -Nameera.

Fade

Where have you been, For such a long time? I’ve longed to be seen, All through our life. Time comes to a pause, As you mirror my ways. All your societal laws, Cringe & cease to stay. I’m not a reflection, You see in the mirror. I’m your hesitation, An inborn error. But you only […]

Oculus

Circling this holy tomb, We sharpen our spears. The rising blood moon, Is destined to appear. The night is stretched, Across these shadows. Demons so wretched, Stoke rage with bellows. The hole you’re left with, Engraved upon the heart. Is the window; too stiff, To let life take a start. Tear the curtains apart, Smash […]
