Dear Darling

Dear darling, I’ve envisioned us I’ve peeked into the future and I’ve jumped far beyond All to catch a glimpse of you as I lay in bed longing for your company Dear darling, I’ve envisioned us I see you hurrying up to me just so you can tell me how exciting that new discovery at…

A rant

You know you’re a child when the horizon is all but a line you can either cross or not cross. What I mean to say is, when I was younger, there weren’t many things I considered before taking any decisions. It was either yes or a no. I either like it or I don’t. Slowly,…

It’s time

Let it go Can’t you see? The ropes have chafed your palms Broken through your otherwise tough skin Bled you dry How much longer do you think you can sustain? Let go, dear child, There will come a time when another palm is all you’ll have to hold Let yourself live to see that day…

How many

How many hours of sheer drudgery does it take Before you halt, take a deep breath and look back at how far you’ve come? How many abuses were hurled your way Before you figured that it might not have been what you deserved But it equipped you with walls that seldom fell. How many wrong…

Well, this is embarassing.

I’ve realised that I’ve missed writing a little too much. Writing helps me figure things out. Iron out the details in my head. I’m a nervous talker in person but when it’s in my head, I know the words that I’m supposed to say, I know the exact emotions I’m supposed to convey. I don’t…

Mess

Alright guys, this blog, it was intended to be my venting space and I think I’m going to use it as that today. I’ve always wondered, is it really possible to “try too hard”? Is it possible to want something really bad? I used to be a girl that walked on plateaus but I’ve been…

Oasis

An oasis, hidden away by massive dunes, Wishing for company other than those familiar grains of sand Life is all but a mirage, A surreal fantasy Just until you’re too close. Poof! Gone in a cloud of dust Leaving me with scars so raw The harshness of the sand is almost imperceptible. Drink me dry…

Rollercoaster

Today, I’m in a creative mood but I also feel really heavy on emotion. That’s a blanket term I know, but in my defence, there isn’t any specific emotion I’m feeling right now. I had a dream a few days ago. As I closed the curtains and switched the lights off in our room, I…

You’re a person. Not a Rubik’s cube.

This post, is brought to you by: 1. My past 2. My stupidity 3. An experience 4. My epiphany I’ve seen a lot of articles doing the rounds on the internet. The famous one being, “36 questions to make two people fall in love”. If you must know, I have no patience whatsoever when it…

Despondent Dancing

My head, it was exploding with thoughts. Not the pleasant kind. None that scared me but none that seemed welcoming either. I was standing in the middle of an endless void. I was surrounded by my own reflection. Wherever I looked, I saw myself. It was as if I was trapped in an endless labyrinth…
