Trivial

Like a speck of dust in the big world, I am insignificant in the greater scheme of things. The universe is huge and it doesn’t revolve around me. Who would think a fact as clear as that will have to be stated? But we’ve created extravagant scenarios in our little heads where everything affects us…

In Search Of Light

There is light at the end of this tunnel that has long since been drowned. So what if I have to float to get to the other end? The light never dims… it still shows me the path. So what if I have to hold a lamp to guide me even during the day? The…

The Balance In Breeze

There’s nothing like the cool breeze that blows right before the first rays of sun emerge from behind the dark sky. Like a reminder of balance. The sun won’t shine on us forever, the clouds will loom. The harsh cold will take over this warmth only to be pushed back again every morning. Just like…

From Dusk Till Dawn

This is the morning after a night of thinking. Just a few hours ago I was floating in thoughts of death and despair. I lay motionless for the entire night, pondering over the meaning of life. Am I any wiser this morning? The answer lies in the wrinkles of the sheets and the wetness of…

One Sheet At A Time

There is hollowness in my existence. My soul is crumbling like a worn down house in a storm. I am alive… my flesh is not decaying…yet.On a blank sheet of paper, I pen down. I pour over my heart in a book with words tainted in ink. Words that tell my story, words that hide…

Beauty In Destruction

It is serene and quaint, like the calmness before a storm. I can sense it build behind me. Slowly it is growing, taking control. It growls at me as if telling me who is in charge here. But I am relaxed as if I am unaware of its existence. I know it is there, I…

The Happy Me

Do you know when I felt the happiest? It was a few moments before I said “I do” to you. Those last moments of blissful unawareness…The time I didn’t know what was awaiting me. The time when I was dreaming of a life full of love. The time I lived a few years ago…Those moments…

Hell Hath No Fury

“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” something about this proverb unsettles me. Does it depict the stereotype that women are very emotional and can get vindictive in the moment of heartbreak? Or does it simply advocates the strength women have and can use when provoked?

Am I A Writer?

With a pen in hand and thoughts in mind, I plan to make sense of these dancing words. I try to string them together into a masterpiece but I fail. I want to pen my thoughts but I can’t. I want to shout them aloud but my voice falters. I want to write and write…

Do I Own It?

Locked inside the four walls of my house To ensure my ‘safety’ in the bad world My monotonous routine suffocates me I die every day in bits, succumbing to morals No vacations with friends, no sleepovers Clubs and bars are not where a ‘decent’ girl enters Late nights are out of question for me When…

The Dream To Fly

Just a look at them and I am left craving… Flying to the moon and back has always been an unfulfilled dream!

Savage

Choosing between two options when your boyfriend has a ‘temporary’ side chick… Practically convince him that getting tattoos of each other’s name is romantic, make him go first and then you go home! Tada Wait till your wedding day and while he has his eyes on the aisle looking for you, send him an airport…
