Degrassé

Entranced and unsettled by the vastness of the universe, experienced in a jolt of recognition that the night sky is not just a wallpaper but a deeply foreign ocean whose currents are steadily carrying off all other castaways, who share our predicament but are already well out of earshot—worlds and stars who would’ve been lost…

Rhythm of the Moon

An empty room with a lonely soul sitting beside the window, with a clear view of the moon. A soft hindi retro playlist in a loop, eyes half-closed with lips murmuring with the tune. Eyes have a language of their own- a lot to say, a lot they know. Somewhere in the middle of thoughts,…

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…

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,…

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…

Astrophe

It’s hard not to look at the ground as you walk. To set your sights low, and keep the world spinning, and try to stay grounded wherever you are. But every so often you remember to look up, and imagine the possibilities. Dreaming of what’s out there. Before long, you find yourself grounded once again….

Astronauts

We all get hurt, we have experienced how it feels to get abandoned, to fail, and to see the coldest sides of the people that were once warm with us. However, I’m a firm believer that the intensity of your pain is controlled by you- you choose to view yourself as the victim, or as…

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…

Moments

Sometimes I space out- all the voices around me turn to misapprehended languages trying to invade the bubble I form around me, but the bubble turns glass thick, and the voices walk away. And in moments like these, I really see what I never knew I was looking for. I see that friend who tries…

Falling Stars

The stars are falling like arrows shot by Cupid, hitting the wishers as they think, each one lets out a scream. And the sky has dimmed to black. Don’t look up, it’s a hopeless sight. But on the ground there are starlights, lighting a way through the pain. Sometimes the solution isn’t up in the…
