Thereafter

To my dear one, I don’t remember the day I met you, but that day made me remember you thereafter. I don’t remember the first word you spoke to me, but that word made me converse with you thereafter. I don’t remember the first smile you gave me, but that smile asked me to keep…

Eventually

Yes, it’s difficult for me to bloom; the Sun, the winds and the drops, are hurting my costume. But there will be a dawn, and I’m waiting for that opportune, when one of my sepals will win and wave, by a lagoon, after this typhoon! Wanna be a wordmate? Connect with us and transform your thoughts…

But She was a girl

When she found herself in the womb, she wanted to freely bloom. Her heart started beating, as she eagerly waited for the greeting. Soon she stretched her arms, spreading along her charms. She then sucked her thumb, there seemed music- she did hum. She was pretty as a pearl, but they found out she was…

Identity

I wish humans were color blind, so they’d know how to be kind. Irrespective of the colour, class or creed, realize that it’s the same blood we all bleed. Every life matters, when will we all understand? How much more cruelty do we have to withstand? Wanna be a wordmate? Connect with us and transform…

Imperfect Love

Love is not always perfect, it may not be a fairytale, nor a storybook to collect. Love is about overcoming barriers, facing the challenges, which often seem the pain carriers. It’s worth fighting to be together, holding on and vouching for, forever. It’s a short word- easy to spell, difficult to define, and impossible to…

The Voice

My dear, you are so cheerful. As you approach with dancing steps, and speak in happiness- oh my, what a voice that is, turning things up-side-down! Where do you find so many words to say? Laughter-filled whispers in my ear- so playful, I love to hear your voice, every single day! Wanna be a wordmate?…

Reborn

When I close my eyes I’m with you, when I open my eyes I miss you. The feel of your fingers, still linger on my skin. Blissful sin in every form, when you’re with me, I am reborn. Stoke the fire all night, when you’re with me, everything seems bright. Two bodies entwined- pure lust,…

Mine and Mine Alone

“Tickets for three please”, she said to the attendant. All this while she feigned ignorance, putting her best act, as though she hadn’t noticed my presence. “Well played”, I thought to myself with a crooked smile lighting up my face. “She just won’t let anyone know that I am the only one who gets to…

Due Decorum!

She always chose to stay composed and calm until one day she felt it was time she took a stance. She did no wrong, she only wanted to show why she was right, but she was rude and sounded unpleasant. She was angry- it wasn’t exactly her day, she was overwhelmed, she had behaved totally…

Seven Moons

There was a time, I considered myself privileged on this Earth, because in contrast to her single moon, I had seven. Her powerless moon forced a reputation all by the charm of Mother Nature, while mine were the cause of my shine. I had never desired anything better- neither did I have any big wishes,…

A Wild Sheep Chase

As long as I stared at the clock, at least the world remained in motion…. And as long as I knew the world was still in motion, I knew I existed. It begins simply enough: A twenty-something advertising executive receives a postcard from a friend, and casually appropriates the image for an insurance company’s advertisement….

Oblivion

Blood pumping, face gleaming with sweat, spirit soaring and dropping simultaneously. Stars twinkling, lighting the field, winds blowing. Heaving sighs, he stood there, short of breath. With a sword in his untidy hand, his shield glistening, with beads of crimson red hanging loosely in his other hand, he could smell earth, blood, sweat, and ignited…

A Little Longer

Come,let’s get drenched in the season’s first rain.I will grab your arms,and take you to the little garden over my place. Let’s linger in the pour,for a little longer than usual.I’ll show you those tiny beads transfiguringinto silver strings of happiness.Hey, can you see those champak flowers?Those flowers would tell me stories all along the…

Nine

Shivers shoot down my spine, how we lost count of time. Fingers tracing fine lines- stumbling to the edge, I tumble out of bed at nine. Two humans flawed by design, error is indeed divine. I resign myself to the fact that I am destined to lose sleep over you, and never wake up to…
