The Mirror

They weren’t eyes, They were Windows to you; A glimpse of my Secrets. No matter how hard I tried, Pain had a way of making Itself evident through the Brown hues fading into The morbid blackness Hovering upon my Existence. They’re tainted pink & purple, But exhaustion is always Crystal clear. Didn’t you ever feel, […]

Apprehensions Regarding Bharat.

Hey y’all! About 2 months ago I mentioned in one of my posts that I was going to talk about my apprehensions on moving to India. So, here it goes. 1. Nostalgia. I don’t think there’s a way to avoid this. Every minute I breathe, eat, or talk there’s going to be an inevitable wave […]
