A Familiar Stranger

A familiar silence in the room. A familiar chillness in the air. I couldn’t hear anything except for the clock ticking. My hands and feet sweating cold. A presence of someone or something I did feel, in the darkest lonely corner of my room. All I could see was two small marble spheres, shining and…

Meaningless Act

Years and years of knowing, Knowing one another as thick friends. Friends, for me, was a very complicated word. Word, a word that I didn’t cherish very much. Much of the conversation with her was funny. Funny thing was, I was dumb enough to make the same mistakes. Mistakes repeated, always caused disappointments and pain….

Accept yourself

For years, I searched for it. For years, I fought for it. For years, I worked for it. For years, I wanted to be accepted. ….. Expected a lot, from my so called friends. Expected a lot, from many of my relatives. Expected a lot, from my family and strangers alike. Expected I, only to…

Who is the Beggar?

I come to the temple by walking with my bare foot. You come to the temple in your costly bike or car and then go inside barefoot. I am wearing a dirty shirt and a torn shorts, covering my forehead with one hand to escape the sun. You are wearing a muddy colored t-shirt and…

Lost Tempest

I saw her alongside the beach. With her hair glistening in the evening sun and water dripping from her brows. She embraced the sea like a mermaid. Her fins and tail was missing and yet she looked ready to dive deep into the ocean; She looked at me and I stood there, transfixed by her gaze….

Secret Treasure

Looking deep into her eyes, He saw an oceanic soul behind them. Diving into the deep abyss, Searched for the most valuable gem. A girl’s heart is an ocean of secrets, How true the saying was. An explorer, he turned himself into, And dug the secrets with his claws. Her anger and fury swallowed him,…

The Wall

It’s been days, several days I think; I had been in a maze. The walls were sky high And all I could do was stand by. The moonlight peeped curiously, From in between the walls mysteriously. I walked and walked the distance, despite my legs cramped in resistance. Even with my sharp eyesight, I did…

Deathly Hallows

It was a very thrilling adventure, the one I could never forget. Meeting Death unexpectedly on that bridge; with my brothers, we magically net. It granted us, three brothers,  one single promised wish for each. It wanted to play a game  of its liking and a lesson to teach. My eldest brother asked for  a wand;…
