Lust or Love

Let me witness that blushing face, you try so hard to hide. Unraveling the mysteries of your oceanic heart, which is swelled with pride. Slithering my fingers through your dark hair, I tame the untameable. Tightening my cold grip around your hip, like a contracting steel cable. ~~~ Open your eyes to gaze at mine,…

The Fall

As I leaned over the balcony, all abandoned with no company, my heart slumped deeper in agony, my soul walking a goalless journey. ~~~ Dark clouds concealing the sky, strong winds of the natural July. Though the emanating petrichor did satisfy, my mind was adamant to die. ~~~ With sweaty hands and cold feet, I…

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?

Never Before

The heart was heavier like it was never before. The head was clouded like it was never before. The legs were trembling like it did never before. The chest was aching like it did never before. The stomach was churning like it did never before. The time was halted like it did never before. The nightmares…

Never Force Her

An argument, in the morning, An accusation by him on her. Denial, done beautifully, she Reverse blamed him with stronger words. Hurt and surprised, he questioned His own self-doubted heart. Was it the truth that she changed forever, Or her old self still lingered in there somewhere? He fought this battle for many times than he could…

Heartbeat

It had been a rather unusual day, My heart behaved like it did never before. The agitation was more than I could imagine, I was completely shaken to the core. Everything was normal and as usual, As another non-eventful day began. But out of nowhere and with no warning, I felt like a completely defeated…

Successful Failure

After years of searching, I finally realized I was completely lost. After years of fighting, I finally laid down my weapon called hope. After years of waiting, I finally ran out of my patience. After years of running, I finally gave up and stopped. After years of involving, I finally didn’t care anymore for anything….
