Within these pages, you will discover that there is hope for letting go and recovering from abuse, loss, grief, and heartbreak. There is hope for brighter days and new…

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

A couple of years ago I came across one of my favourite poems- ‘Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night’, by Dylan Thomas. The poem goes- Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Though wise…

Silent Hope

Miles away from those I love, feels like I’m much too far away. Where purpose is undefined, wouldn’t time be out to charm you? We all need that person who can be true to us, but we know that hearts can change, coz, nothing lasts forever. So when fears subside, and shadows still remain- never…

Lost & Unsuccessful

We have all failed in ‘something’ in this world, at some time or other. It must be at anything, or at any age, but yes, we have gone through failures. It could be a tween losing a school competition, a teen having a tough time, an adult struggling with the job- we all go through…

Bloom

How familiar we are with darkness can be quite surprising at times. You sit there and wonder how someone that looks so alive can actually be so melancholic. I believe that this darkness is what sets the right contrast for us to see clearly. But our role doesn’t end there, we don’t just survive and…

Carry You- Ruelle ft. Fleurie

‘Carry You’ by Ruelle featuring Fleurie was released in March 2018. The song was written by Lauren (aka Fleurie), MaggieEckford (aka Ruelle), and Matt Broleewe. It is a song encompassing one’s feelings around hard and hurtful times. And we all go through such times, so perhaps we can all relate to ‘Carry You’. When you…

Apologize

Not every human trait is humane. Humans envy, humans destroy, humans deceive, humans hurt, and humans can be possessive; and the mistake each and everyone of us make is accepting our mistake, giving ourselves a pat on the back even if we ruin somebody else’s day as long as that somebody isn’t us. One of…

Advent

After every bad day, there comes a good one too. After every rain, there’s a rainbow too. After every hardship, there comes ease too. After every sorrow, there comes delight too. After every darkness, there comes light too. So don’t you give up, for the worst shall pass too! Wanna be a wordmate? Connect with…

Dear Anxiety

I’ve lost time, opportunities and moments, in my angst of not being good enough. I’ve landed into a state where criticism seems a disapproval, where valuing seems a pity. I feel like standing on frozen water, hearing the cracks deepen with every passing second. I am helpless, for even if I move, it’s in my…

My Life

My life is like a night sky, full of brilliant stars. Below, everything is shadow, but above, light shines- something beautiful, a gleam that will never end. I know, it is through the darkness that I see the light. Even though I can’t see in front of me, I look up, and the light lasts….

Paper Mirrors

The way that I write is the way that I feel, that’s why it changes and that’s how it’s real. Sometimes when I feel like there’s no one around, like no one would hear me if I made a sound; that’s when I write like a loved one just died, that’s when I write like…

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…
