The Great Fail

It is a slow climb completed in moments in leaps and bounds up the hill, then comes the fall, crashing down, and in a moment, all is still. Grim realisations resonate, repeating, recurring relentlessly. Escape is a far fetched fantasy, blame corrodes me shamelessly. Every verse that leaves my mind I hope to god this…

HINDUstaan

Let the bugles play loud, the warriors are in town to fight for a land they call their own which is a desolate dystopian dump and those who try to make it better, the patriots, are told to leave the man made borders. Whose imaginary friends are better, shall decide life and death, because if…

Flight and Fall

I am light, light as a feather, I can fly, I can float slowly down to the ground, I don't need a parachute, I can slowly drift down to mother earth, from high up in the sky, beyond the clouds, in a realm science has not yet understood for its magic. And then I plummet,…

Friendship

We are friends, we share our joys and sorrows, and see each other through the worst of times. We are friends, we accept the other for who they are, we listen without judging, and celebrate our differences. We are friends, from the hour long phone calls, to the free counseling sessions whenever our better half…

Turned Away

We were both in the bright sun, the kind that beats down ruthlessly, blinding all those who dare look up. The bright white light piercing my eye rendering me stark naked and grotesque as if all that I had done floats to the surface. You and I were both standing under the same bright sun,…

Trigger Warning

I'm not defined by the triggers, I can handle myself, I am strong, I am.... lying. When a river flows underground, you can deny its existence, but it is still there, just below the surface. Just below the surface. A shadow, a specter, a reality that haunts and stays there, threatening, waiting to be revealed…

Maturity

All that I see around me is changing. The world is turning upside down with every 360, the bright contrast in different colours, the whole rainbow that once streaked across the sky, has now dulled to grey-scale, visible only in black, white, and all the grey in between. What once was a function of magic…

So Long, Farewell….

When the fateful day arrives, when I should breathe my last, and my heart's beats fall out of rhythm, slowly to come to a halt, and all my senses, five, six or a hundred, cease to sense any more than senselessness, don't shed a single tear. When rigor mortis takes control of my physical being…

I Have Seen Love

I am still young, the miles ahead far outnumber the seasons left behind. But I am no stranger to love, I have seen it, I have felt it. I have seen the roll of loaded dice, always in the favour of one over the other. I have seen red in valentines' hearts, as red as…

Lone Wolf

The frozen night sky, all clouded over, a silent forest, save for the breeze mischievously rustling the leaves, as if to say that silence will never be perfect. Coniferous trees, adapted to nature the falling snow does not bury, suffocate and kill. A forest breathes like a beast, rearing its head to strike silently at…
