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…

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,…

Nighthawk

A recurring thought that only seems to strike you late at night—an overdue task, a nagging guilt, a looming and shapeless future—that circles high overhead during the day, that pecks at the back of your mind while you try to sleep, that you can successfully ignore for weeks, only to feel its presence hovering outside…

Routine

I missed the days when I went to bed feeling like I’ve accomplished something, now every night I stare at the ceiling and think of the great plan that will miraculously pull me out of this routine, then I fall asleep thinking, then I wake up and repeat it all again. The End Just some…

The Moon

The Moon is melting down, giving the stars her crown. The blanket of sleepy sky, is receiving heaven’s blessings, above high. They are not mere stars, they are the twinkling dreams that the Almighty scatters. The Moon is melting down, pouring her silver shine in my somnolent town. She is eluding and dwindling away, with…

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…

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….

The Magic of Sleep

We have spent decades optimizing our waking hours, but what about the precious hours after we doze off (or try to)? The Magic of Sleep tells you everything you’ve ever wanted to know about sleep but were too tired to ask. As the most active time for our brains and the most important element to…

Dead Reckoning

To find yourself bothered by someone’s death more than you would have expected. As if you assumed they would always be part of the landscape, like a lighthouse you could pass by for years until the night it suddenly goes dark, leaving you with one less landmark to navigate by, still able to find your…

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,…

The Hardest Thing About Grief

Life is so mercilessly relentless, and that’s what makes grieving hard. The World keeps on spinning and after every sleepless night, the sun still rises. The show must go on. There is no timeout for you to step off the merry-go-round, catch your breath and process your pain. There are people in your life to…

Compromise

I’ll be more gentle, to the thorns that want to hurt me. And I’ll be kinder, to the waves that want to drown me. I’ll keep filling the void forming in between. And I’ll keep being strong, despite the odds to let this knot stay put. I’ll be the sun, helping you grow like a…
