Goodbye 2016

I remember not much, the start of this year. But I am sure, I’ll remember the end of it. With such a depressing year, I never expected, All I wanted to do, was quit. Many had it worse than me, Many had it better, I guess. But my thinking only caused discomfort And halted my progress….

“Arise, Awake and Stop Not”

There I was, drowned in hopelessness, Pulled in by negativity, into the ineludible quicksand. The more I thought about the past, The quicker, sadness engulfed me. *** Sipping coffee, unmoved from my place, My eyes, fixed on the wall opposite, My mind traversed the windy seas, With no destination to conclude with. *** Suddenly, my…

Walking Corpse

Consumed, not completely, by anger and rage, he felt like ditching her with utter disdain. Of all the things, she could do to him, turning him into an empty shell; her best achievement. The more he gave, the more she took; blind, to his painful visage and deaf, to the muffled screams. He waited and…

War of the Monsters

Confused and discouraged, he walked his way home with bloodied face and torn shirt, abandoned by his guys, he called friends. No one stepped up to save him. None to stop him either. The fight ensued as planned by the seniors, which saw a monster emerge from his slumber. The result was quite the opposite…

Retreat

‘Twas happening again, Was in a lot of pain. Mother’s words felt like nagging, Advice of my father kept dragging. *** Cold and grey, seemed world to me, Drowned, in despair called sea. All interests faded, Just boredom invaded. *** Didn’t care about anything, one moment, Was branded, too arrogant. Sometimes, I cared too much, Overreacted, I…

A Warrior’s Leave

Many days it’s been, and so many nights, Constantly, I had fought many fights. The battle to win always goes on, In this war, I am just a pawn. *** I was lucky, relieved I was, For now, from my duty and death’s jaws. Many didn’t get to go home, even if wanted, Their bodies buried,…

Holidays

Waiting for her text, Scrolled through the old messages. Her words, a knife like, wounded, He had no bandages. *** “Hey there.”, popped up on his screen, Vibrating phone, jumped up to sit. Replied with a, “Heyaaa”  His spirit, a little bit lit. *** “When are you coming home?”, Eagerly he questioned. “I am not.”,…

Django – The Bounty Hunter

Riding off the sunset, together with his love, On his horse, brown and white, she was his dove. His job accomplished, not as easy as it seemed, But this moment was always what he dreamed. *** A slave he was for a while ago, so did his wife, But not anymore, both were free for…

Know Thyself

Suffering from pain, the heart and mind in both, I realized the halt in my growth. Forward in their path when the world moved, Carrying on my journey, my own mind disapproved. Days to weeks, did I not sleep properly, Months to years, I behaved awkwardly. “What’s going on?” asked I, to myself repeatedly, Prayed…

Calmly Life

Lightening, then suddenly a thunder struck, Impulsively ran under a table to duck, Slowly, he grabbed my hand gently, “Hey, it’s ok.” and said profoundly. “Aren’t you scared?” I asked him confused, He smiled at me slightly amused. “Oh yes, I am.” he uttered, not at all unnerved, Not a drop of fear on his…
