The Lost Cause

His eyes were pleading, searching for someone to understand, to voice out what his imagination couldn’t even grasp. But they all looked at him passively, making him feel hopelessly numb. He was looking for an anchor, but he couldn’t find one. So he crashed inside, his muscles rippled. A range of expressions masked his face;…

The Escape Plan

The sky kept changing its colors, indecisive of what shade it was going to display- akin to his varying feelings, for he couldn’t quite determine what to do. His carefully composed equanimity was slipping, troubling his handsome face. He was barely holding on to his conscience. He kept finding himself lost in a trance. It…

Miles Away!

I soared high and above, towards the night sky, it felt so calm and serene, away from the noise. I mingled with owl hoots, and flittermouse echoes bathing in the silver moonlight, and playful winking of that innocent shining star. I mingled with the cold, fresh and clean air, my lungs heaved a sigh of…

Just a Kiss

I saw him shiver at my sight. I watched as fear ignited his eyes. I felt a rush of emotions striking him- memories tugged at the corner of his conscience, feelings buried deep down inside him resurfacing, the sense of right and wrong vivid now, a silent plea for one last chance. I wonder why…

The Hoax

Screeching and screaming, I don’t see no end to this frustration. The never-ending drama, that people call life- stress, anxiety, caring about what people think, trying different things just to reach the same result. Wanting to do so much, but doing so little. Love bursting inside, but can’t let it out. Fear chewing my insides,…

Hope

Clocked my hopes, sheltered my dreams. Masked my face, became devil’s advocate, played the role staggeringly well. Lost myself in the crowd; I didn’t leave a trail, burned all bridges without a second thought. Imprisoned my brain in self-doubts. I wanted to rise above my demons, but ended up dancing with them into a trance….

The Meaning

Confusion comprehended, agitation ignored, frustration acknowledged, anxiety at its peak. Why am I falling? falling into an abyss, happiness gliding around me, touching and teasing but not staying. Fear- an overwhelm, of some unknown loss waiting just around the corner; abiding its time, building its strength, weaking my resolve, holding me hostage once again. I…

Her Escape

Music- her escape, from the nerve-racking screeches in her head. From questions unanswered, and ideas spinning wildly in her chaotic brain. From the agony of love wasted, to the scars of a broken heart. From the illusion of knowing herself, to feeling the nothingness in self. She endures it all, every night and every day,…

Seamless Thoughts

Your thought comes seamlessly, like a cold breeze after rain. It lingers there, enveloping me in a cold embrace, I always work tirelessly to make it go away. Your thought is becoming an addiction, something that I long for, even knowing what it entails. And yet the momentary inclination- of what could have been were…

Disgrace

Hiding his insecurities, behind the mask of indifference, he treads through his life every day. He carefully built his life around bitter realities, even as rebellion shined bright in those eyes. He wasn’t meant to live an ordinary life; for he knew no boundaries, for he knew nothing about giving up, for he sought something…

A Journey through darkness

The moon embraced the darkness of the night, enveloping it in its silvery glow and shined brightly. I tiptoed around waiting for an answer, wondering what on earth has happened, that everything fell apart out of the blue, with no coherent thought in my mind. I heard a binge and turned around, practically ran towards…
