Days of the Week

I’m writing you a letter,like I always do,when you fall apart on Sunday afternoons. Monday night,it was raining when I texted you.I couldn’t quite understand how my body was here,but my soul was with you.Little things are like glue,always keeping us together.And no one really knows me better than you do. Tuesday morning came around,left…

ഈറൻ

ഒരുപാട് കാലത്തിനിടയിൽ കണ്ടതിൽവെച്ച് മികച്ചൊരു ഹ്രസ്വചിത്രം. ജീവിതത്തിലെ മറക്കാൻ പറ്റാത്ത ഒരു ഏട് പറിച്ചു നട്ടതു പോലെയുണ്ട്. സാഹചര്യങ്ങളിലും സംസാരത്തിലും എന്തിനു പറയണം കഥാപാത്രങ്ങളുടെ പേരിൽ വരെയുള്ള സാമ്യത. അണിയറപ്രവർത്തകരെക്കുറിച്ച് കൂടുതൽ  അന്വേഷിച്ചപ്പോൾ അത് തികച്ചും യാദൃശ്ചികമാണെന്ന് മനസ്സിലായി. ഇനിയും കണ്ടിട്ടില്ലാത്തവർ ഉണ്ടെങ്കിൽ, യഥാർത്ഥ സൗഹൃദങ്ങളിൽ ഇന്നും വിശ്വസിക്കുന്നവരാണെങ്കിൽ, ഓർമ്മകളുടെ താഴ്വരയിലേക്ക് ഒരു യാത്ര പോകണമെന്നുണ്ടെങ്കിൽ, അതിനപ്പുറം ഒരു മഴ നനയണമെന്നുണ്ടെങ്കിൽ..നിങ്ങൾക്കും നുകരാം ഈ നനവോർമ്മകൾ. നിങ്ങൾക്കും എഴുതാം..ഒരു പക്ഷേ ഇതൊരു തുടക്കമായിരിക്കാം. പണ്ടെപ്പോഴോ പാതിവഴിയിൽ ഉപേക്ഷിച്ച ഒരു…

Frames that Stare at Us

I went to an art museum recently, where I found lots of frames hung on the wall. I could not understand the pictures drawn on them. There were quite a few of them. I thought I will understand at least one of them. But to my disappointment, I could not figure out anything. However, there…

Heartworm

A relationship or friendship that you can’t get out of your head, which you thought had faded long ago but is still somehow alive and unfinished, like an abandoned campsite whose smoldering embers still have the power to start a forest fire. Coined in 2012 by John Koenig in The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, a project, to…

Once in a Lifetime

The best kind of people are the ones that come into your life and make you see sun where you once saw clouds. The people that believe in you so much, you start to believe in you too. The people that love you simply for being you. The once in a lifetime kind of people….

Twin Flames

There was a feeling of inevitability when I met you. The sense that we would be together; that there would be a moment when you would look at me in a certain way, and we would cross the threshold from friendship into something so much more. We spoke once about lovers who kept finding each…
