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 Gift

‘It wasn’t really a question, replied Catherine, a sharp edge in her voice as she pulled out a knife. ‘But, mom I..’ Kyle began but was cut short by a gleam in his mother’s eyes that unduly spoke of finality. He sighed. There was no use in arguing when it was clear that he wasContinue reading “The Gift”

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”

Just Another Day

Age is just a number, the saying goes. But pushing 70, I can feel an overwhelming sense of forgetfulness creeping in as a result of my ageing mind. Why, just yesterday I had lost my glasses and realised that it had just been sitting on the bridge of my nose all the while. Now, that’sContinue reading “Just Another Day”

The night

However hard he tried not to be, Ethan was afraid. Nervous energy thrummed throughout his body as he held the back door to his house open. ‘Now, it’s just a little stroll, Ethan. It’s probably just nothing,’ he told himself, biting his lip. He looked back into his house. It was dead quiet except forContinue reading “The night”

To my sister

You’ve always been with me since my life began, Paving my way with love and care, You’re my pillar of support, a guiding star Brightening my path with your steady light. We’ll always be together wherever we are Because we’re tethered to each other, With a bond knotted so tight, That it can’t be brokenContinue reading “To my sister”

The forest

A small verdant forest rests near my house. It is alive with green things towering high up, like skyscrapers piercing the sky. And it has become a treasured daily retreat of mine. I slam the front door of my house shut, savouring the banging sound for it meant my freedom from my daily humdrum life.Continue reading “The forest”

The girl

Rory’s pale face was framed with dark wind swept hair and studded with a pair of emerald eyes flecked with crystals of grey.  The thin smile that always played her lips was now expanding and relaxing as she kept flashing it to the sea of children swimming across the dark corridor to reach their classes. Continue reading “The girl”

My school story

Cold Monday morning And I’m still snoring  When mom calls out To get up and be about  Soon my bus zooms in But it’s all chaos within  Have I packed everything? Opps! I think forgot a thing! Oh! Now I have to look For that wretched lost book That I haven’t been through  From whichContinue reading “My school story”

The little bird

‘….. The old man uncaged the little bird with a lovely smile wrinkling up his face. The bird, at being released, gave a shrill chirp of joy and flapped his red wings happily. The man watched the little bird, his eyes brimmed with tears. And then bidding a final chirp of goodbye, the little birdContinue reading “The little bird”

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”

Future Predictions

We have come across many sci-fi movies or stories informing us about the dangerous future where humans become devoid of feelings or the same old robots taking over earth or the life brimming with technology. After coming across a similar story which told me about a future where education would be entirely digitalised, complete withContinue reading “Future Predictions”

Bookshelves

Two dark gigantic boxes with a sun touched transparent glass showcases a spectrum of glinting tinctures of colours. And then when you edge nearer, you give heed to the tiny words on the colours. Your eyes skim over them urgently in the act of searching or just in mere exhilaration. Either way it’s breath-taking. YouContinue reading “Bookshelves”

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”

Window

The unfortunate turn of events in the previous year is unimaginable. A dreaded virus, tedious lockdowns and numerous restrictions. Yesterday, my mind was overwhelmed by this unfortunate situation. I felt very gloomy. It felt like years since I physically went to school, and as though I had missed everything because of this lockdown. I feltContinue reading “Window”

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”
