The reason of being

I tried to pour out the meaning of life from a vessel of brewing age And all that I got was a cupful of broth garnished with twigs of insiped sage. The meaning of life was differently felt by those whose lips it touch Some found it sweet while others sour and nothing really upto…

Refuse if you must.

When evil triumphs and faith dwindles to the scums of despair  and hopelessness.  When every narcissist seems blessed with enablers that thrive at the cost of your kindness. When you can’t believe  what your eyes show you and hearing is strained for no fault of your ears. When your flesh is tired and your soul…

Besmirched.

Shed not a single tear for me when I am gone I won’t be there to plead before  to forgive you for your wrong. Mourn not in slightest repentance for all that you have done it wasn’t something accidental or light enough just for fun. You knew what you were doing when you singed my…

His SHE

Part – 2 It’s kind of strange how no one in the office is grumbling or even mentioning her name. How come they are leaving the golden chance to criticise Zelda? How come they are breaking their own ritual of targeting for once? This is very unlike of them, my gut feelings warned me. They…

His SHE.

Varied thoughts were flooding her mind, she felt her heart beating much, much slower than the usual, slow enough to reduce the suction of her lungs to deep meaningful breaths of pure determination. Her eyes refusing to coordinate with her brain, developed blurred images, that flashed on the walls of her cortex returning back unrecognised….

Drop the mental blocks.

“When hatred judges, the verdict is just guilty.”  ― Toba Beta, How do we know when we are correct? What references do we use to come up with such a conclusion? Is it the preconditioned mind that becomes our inner voice in the form of a sixth sense? Or the set rules of moral infused by…

The Qualm of Silence.

Never before did I encounter my own identity.  Never before did my reflection look me back in the eye,  with a look so powerful that could penetrate my soul and chill my blood to a pale blue.  Never before did I realise how miserable I could be in my own company.  I had a strange…

The culprit within.

What are emotions and why are we so vulnerable when it comes to the matter of our hearts being miserable.  Little weaklings in carcasses of huge creatures we transform in one-fourth of a second to cold blooded from warm. Swelling our meek image to larger than life with red fangs of cruelty, we snarl and strife. …

The last cry .

How I long, to wash away the blood off my hands now that I stand at the edge of my rope I dip them deep in the ocean of my deeds  rubbing them well in the waters of my grief the more I rub, the redder they get  cold-blooded stains of my past I don’t…

The Unspoken

On one rainy evening I happened to bump into an old friend at a coffee cafe after a tiring days work. Excited, we held out our arms and hugged like never before. It was nice to see that we still felt the same for each other, although we didn’t look the same anymore. Grey hair,…

If

If the shades of a radiant rainbow changed to a steely grey would it still be as admired or its popularity wither away. If the white cliffs of Dover lost their pearly majestic view would they still be so fascinating  or be known for the moss they grew. If the tiny soft blades of grass…

WHY NOT ME!

All my life I struggled to materialise a faint dream. A dream to be able to identify myself among the crowd and not another lost soul in the sea of heads popping up and down in unison. Prisoners of mediocre thought and life. Could it all seep through my fingers so easily like water running…

Starve the doubt

We always want to rise above and soar the skies like a flying dove. But can we really reach that high when chains of sin within us lie. So let us abstain from gruesome grime it’s never too late for our souls to shine. It’s only through fasting from vices that we are freed   to…

Enigma of love.

Between dreams and reality in a subconscious state half asleep and half awake I heard her distinct voice. Not able to understand  what she was saying or was she just praying in sharp yet forceful whispers.  I struggled to grasp and make sense of it all sweet or bitter words of gall she mattered the…

Beyond the barriers of Prejudice.

Don’t give me a smile  if you can’t stop being the reason behind my tears. Yes, I am a woman. Gentle and sedate on the outer layers  but on the inside, there lies tremendous strength in all my weaknesses, which may take you a lifetime to fathom. Don’t give me a rose on make believe…

Yearnings of change.

Over the hills in a far away land where daffodils bloom beside soft golden sand. Where melodious robins  flutter and sing in glee  and dew filled buttercups tell tales of an odyssey. Where tuffs of velvet cover the cherry blossom trees and distant swarms of lavender send fragrance in the breeze. Where the gentle rays…

Reinstating life.

There comes a time in life when we earnestly desire to quit whatever we have been habitually doing over the years. That which has eventually drained us of are very being.  A time when looking into the mirror becomes a tedious task of trying hard to find the person we once were but each time…
