  3. wonder why

    You wonder why you’re not happy, You wonder why you have no clue. You wonder why the sky is blue, when oceans deep are darker than you. You wonder if the grass is greener, but you never question the gravel being smoother. You’re sure the wo...

  6. If..then

    If it wasn’t so difficult to let go, would relationships cease to exist? If relationships are tying you too tight, is it not stunting your growth? If it wasn’t necessary to breathe, would anyone threaten to suffocate you? If suffocation did...

  9. All in a minute

    Blood gushed out her wound. Her clothes soaked all it could. The marble floor joined in changing its color too. Her eyes looked dead, they looked at peace. I stood there frozen with an evil smile stuck to my face. The warmth of the life fluid zapped me...

  10. Unwanted change

    Yes, I’ve always longed for a change from this monotonous life. Get up early, wrap up work at home, rush to office, work hard, leave in a hurry, rush home, eat, read, sleep! I mean, seriously, some change! Like a vacation! something, anything! I...

  12. I deserve death

    I was happy. Happier than most men living on this planet. I never feared the dark cloud of unhappiness. I never felt the need to. I drank away to life, I dumped my responsibilities on someone else’s shoulder, I saw him weep and complete my tasks...

  15. Illusion at its best

    ..It was as if I was floating in the direction of the light. The sounds kept getting shriller and I was so scared that my skin may have turned white. I kept saying to myself that I am brave and kept inhaling air and trying not to freak out when suddenl...

  16. Illusion continued

    ..a sudden loud giggle. Neil and I were in deep sleep and neither of us giggled in that fashion. I was shivering not because of the cold but because the shrill giggle sent shivers down my spine. I stay put next to Neil for some time before I heard the ...

  18. A new world

    I am tired every evening, of the same mundane software I churn out every minute. But today, I was sleepy. My head felt so heavy as if I was drunk. I sat in my car that ran on the road and turned the key. I woke up all of a sudden, but I was no more on ...
