The Last Goodbye

The cherry blossoms beamed in all their glory,The pleasant winds caressed her face.A familiar voice echoed in the distance,Time stood still as their eyes met yet again. There was no past and no future,No thoughts and no words-Whenever his magical gaze rested on her,Everything dissolved in perfect union…Bowing down to the depth of his love. […]

Being human…

Joy and Misery. Pleasure and Pain. Love and Fear. Being human is indeed a kaleidoscope of ever-evolving emotions. If all these polarities are a part of the human experience, what makes a person think of themselves as either ‘good’ or ‘bad’, so conclusively? Sometimes, people can be too harsh on themselves because of their past […]

Morning Magic

The leaves swaying to the tune of the breeze,Fill my heart with the utmost elation,The playful colours of nature,Painted artistically on the canvas of creation! Be it the crimson blending with verdant huesOr the flowers coyly smiling,As they feel the dew drops’ gentle caress.The sky is a mysterious azureHolding the tender rays of the sun,In […]

Be it our raillery or your raw, unfiltered viewsRuffling your […]

A letter I will never send

Hey, I remember the last time I was sitting beside you, laughing with wild abandon at one of your wisecracks. I never knew it would be the last, though. How would I? Countless such instances drift through the canvas of my mind, splashing bittersweet emotions of elation and anguish. My heart may not have healed […]

Just another scar…

Little games don’t bother me anymore,Or maybe they do…And I cry myself a river,But then I see right throughPicking myself togetherWithout as much as a quiver.You think you can hurt me?Satisfied with the power you wield?Well, think again, for life taught me how to build an invisible shield…It’s a pity, your tricks won’t make me […]

The Divine Mission

In a galaxy far, far away a beautiful angel, Li sauntered around amidst beams of multicoloured exuberance that were her surroundings. Even from her place of balance and serenity, she felt like she could hear a distant cry from somewhere, a cry of distress…Being the pure soul that she was, she couldn’t bear chaos and […]
