With Love.

To my future daughter : Dear little one, I know you’re lying there on the bed crying because of the boy who means the world to you. He must’ve said or done something stupid or maybe it was you . Well, regardless of whosoever it was, learn to forgive. Forgive yourself and him for whatever…

Ode to the Sea

Gasping and quivering I sprint to the seas, Floating up and down the alleys. Breakdowns at one , Mendings by three. The waves roll up rocking me to sleep. “Too much has happened and I cannot breathe, With eyes out there shooting with rejection I cannot see! “ I weep. “So O! water if I…

Stay ( ? )

“I must leave now”, I whispered under my breath , not taking my head off his chest. I liked how it fit right there, like a tiny piece in a solved jigsaw puzzle and how his heartbeats echoed in my ears, swam slowly into my head. “Can’t you stay?” he asked, obliviously playing with the…

There are days when it becomes necessary for each one of us to understand that despite of how naturally it may come to you to give your all to each person you come across, the bitter truth is that not everyone is going to replicate the same. You may do thousands of things for them…

affliction.

You pen down all those demons swirling inside your brain , anonymously scribble your dingy pain. You spill out ink off your sinking heart, You blot pages with your profound scars.
