The Escapade

A lone owl perched on a the branch of a birch tree, was wide-eyed, looking out at the noises emanating from the ground. Moonlight streamed in through the canopy, letting the owl discern some little figures that were slowly trudging through the forest floor. Rachel tossed the wet tissue into a bin, having dabbed herContinue reading “The Escapade”

The sights

Everything is dotted with a whirl of colour bursts like blooming flowers. At least that’s what I think it is when suddenly someone switches it all off. I scramble to my feet and blink rapidly, trying to catch a shadow for clues. But all I see is the dark, the swirly nothingness of the dark.Continue reading “The sights”

The evening

The clouds glisten like water as the sun sinks into it. It strikes me how small it looks, like an orange ink blot in the sky. The other colours- the rosy pink blush, bright blue and the soft lavender look like smudged streaks of paint. God is a good artist. Excellent, even. And very speedyContinue reading “The evening”

Open your eyes, sally. Open your eyes.,’ whispered Mrs Telhall softly.Sally did. A few people were walking on the pavement.‘OpenContinue reading “The Puppeteer”

Gratitude

Aakesh rubbed the sleep out of his eyes as he walked to the park. Late nights made his morning walks quite a chore now but he wasn’t ready to give them up yet. As he entered, he took his hands away and blinked at the greens unfurling about him: tall trees with red and yellowContinue reading “Gratitude”

The Dreams

I ventured into lands unknownWeaving some dreams of goldI believed its light shoneIn the darkest paths of lone I entwined the thin threadsNot leaving a strand astrayBut I tore my life to shredsLeading me to lie and betray I played a game with fireWon dark smouldering holesI had ashen threads to rewire Into a shadow ofContinue reading “The Dreams”

The eternal night

“After darkness comes the light” – Cornelius Nepos For centuries, the sky had been dressed in a sheet of stars, moon and ink. A nightfall, in years erstwhile, had washed away the streaks of light in one great sweep and had been ruling the world ever since. It was believed to have been a cosmic curseContinue reading “The eternal night”

Memories

Memories upending over my soulBurning like acid as they touch the floorBlinking away like camera flashes While capturing my heart’s core Held prisoner in a wave of sadnessAs moments flow and caressThe shore of eternity Only to fade and flee Vanishing into an abyssReturning to taunt with a glimpseGrasping emotions in a blink of an eyeStranding millionsContinue reading “Memories”

The holiday spirit

‘Twas the night before Christmas. Snow wafted from above, like raining clouds and floated down to the city, dripping off the fine glittery buildings. The whole city was bejewelled with twinkling filaments of light like coloured stars. Perhaps the brightest source of it was the gigantic Christmas tree that adorned the plaza or maybe justContinue reading “The holiday spirit”

You and me forever

God may have bound me to you for eternity But he had devastatingly chosen wrongly For I knew from the first our rope would be cut You feel so alien, so foreign under my skinBut I have to try and understand your termsFor we both know the truth that can’t be shut ‘Cause it’s you andContinue reading “You and me forever”

The world goes

Salty scents brim the air Cold wind seeps in everywhere  But cold to warm, the world goes Melting emotions once froze  Frothy waves dance on the shore To the music inside the heart’s core But music to noise, the world goes Seagulls screech out all my foes Pretty shells colour the lands Holding on toContinue reading “The world goes”

Prison and waters

Lately I find it difficult to pay attention to the world. It’s like I’m sinking in the waters of my life, deeper and deeper until I’m chocked. Everything is a haze of blinding blue. The slow muffled gurgling of water is like bleeding to a slow painless death. And I try, I try to reachContinue reading “Prison and waters”

Gratitude

Your voice resonates deep in my hazy heart, Ceasing my worries, curing my thoughts. Your smile sets up a wave of rapture, Escalating throughout in a vague gather. Your words evoke an expanse of warmth, Penetrating through my faded form. Your profound presence fulfils me, Filling the emptiness residing in me. So tell me, howContinue reading “Gratitude”

Rainstorm

When a heavy rainstorm brews within  Threatening to release, burst and win Unleash it all for it’ll eventually cease To again restore an abode of peace When the rain of tears hits the ground  Drenching the tranquil mind with sound  Don’t you forget that It’ll unfailingly dry  Becoming an echo of time elapsed by WhenContinue reading “Rainstorm”

Change in lives

The year 2020 has caused a lot of changes in our lives.  A whole year of our lives had been somewhat fruitless because of Covid. And now, 2021 seems to be going the same way too. The vaccines had given us a ray of hope. But just as we sighed in relief that it was allContinue reading “Change in lives”

Spreading the light

Happiness is the same for everyone. Whether we work hard to get one meal a day or we sit back and have ample food three times a day, happiness is the same. What I mean is whether we’re rich or poor, it’s very similar in execution. A cry of mirth, sudden shine of eyes orContinue reading “Spreading the light”
