Carved in Darkness

Picture Credits: ideogram I fell into another hole The others still stomp above my soul Their shouting deafens my ears Blinded by the darkness that follows Only this dying little flame guides the shadow Showing the art on the walls carved by me The others tremble this unknown path They think I'm thriving in the dearth It's the cold mud beneath that keeps me warm There's an unsettling smoke I smell The others are setting a fire in hell Harder to breathe, maybe it's for the best Hush, there's an unusual silence Ironically I ought to miss their presence WHOOPS! I fell into another hole ..read more

Picture Credits: Stability Made a mistake trusting you, Was it so hard to be true? Even holding a blade, Made you hide in the shade, Yet only mirrors show you through. (PS: The above poem is a limerick (AABBA rhyme scheme). It is about me confronting the version of myself I despise ..read more

When the Souls Connected

A straight ray of sunshine falls on his eyes, a subtle, comforting burn lights his eyelids, slow grin floats across the sweet face, until a cold, dark shadow appears unexpectedly. Opening his eyes, he sees a blackbird, that glares through its orange-black eyes, senses the loneliness, waiting to be filled, the bird then sits on his head and relishes the point of view. Having not talked to anyone in years, the perplexed man whispers to the bird, awkward silence slowly turns into a melodic echoing room, where the bird and the man pour out their hearts. She suddenly flutters away into the clear b ..read more

Picture Credits:- Dall-E She woke me from my sleep, Bright room, fairy lights Am I in heaven? I wonder. An angel appeared, In a sparkly white gown, I'm definitely in heaven. "Why am I in heaven?" I ask A loving smile appeared on her face, "It was time", she said. I frown, "How are the others?" A diary appeared over her hand, "Here, it has everything you need to know." I open the first page, It's my parents, who seemed worried, "How can I make them happy?" She gave me a feather to draw with, My confused face made her laugh, "Go ahead, you know it." I painted a picture of them happy, Left a let ..read more

Picture credits:- Dall-E This long hallway Never-ending, cabinets on both sides. I enter the right one, I'm made to look pretty, elegant, a white dress, a tiara, a little make up I enter the left one, no make-up, a bold dress, be the worst of me they ask. Back to the right one, bring out the innocence, show me that you're sweet and caring. The left one's impatient, doesn't want any weaknesses, fight everything, fight yourself. Right to left, and again, and again I'm made a puppet, a fool, just that the audience is also me. ENOUGH! Black boots, leather jacket, all that fury, my power, and my s ..read more

Picture credits:- Dall-E The lights turn off, curtains are pulled apart, the white spotlight switched on, It's showtime. She's ready, her hair tied up in a bun the midnight blue gown, the little bow on her head and the innocence on her face. She's sitting down, head down, legs curled up, The audible silence, everyone is awaiting this exact moment The music starts with a fade she gets up, a naive dance, her as a child, as the happiest, the most optimistic anyone could be Slowly the tone slows down, she's dancing out her struggles, her life playing out in front of her, she sees the pain. The fi ..read more

The Unspoken Journey

The day she got the news, she had never been more happier. Awaited this exact moment for so long, that she burst into tears immediately. "A small part of me" she admired, adoring her little one all day long. A boy or a girl didn't matter, a half version of her and the one she loved, excited her the most. It was a long journey, nine months wasn't a short period of time, but she knew, for it was worth the wait. All along her smile never faded. Her happiness lied in buying tiny clothes, imagining those little feet and hands, So soft, so weak, so fragile, wrapped up like a caterpillar. Sometimes ..read more

The confusion in dreams.... A free and joyful movie time with three dimensional effects, where running becomes harder with each step. Stopping the movie cause you got too afraid, and seeing mommy next to you sleep, becomes the happiest moment ever. The worst is when it ends, just after the climax, oh, how sad! We'll never know who won. Can't forget those beautiful moments, visiting our close ones, whom we haven't met in years, or maybe never will. So important to take some time off, and have conversations with your mind, In the end, it's just a good laugh ..read more

Happy Pride Month to all!! Just another day at paradise, hot milk steaming, coffee beans being roasted at sunrise, aroma filling in the room. Two beautiful girls, hand in hand, giggling, come in ordering their usual, 'Coffee with Pearls' along with a rainbow cake. I ask, "Who's the cake for?" "It's for us!", they said. "What do I write on the colour?" "Happy Pride Month!", they exclaimed. Off they went, sat in the corner, Their hearts filled with hues of purple, blue, and pink, in love, smiling at each other. with the colours of the bisexual flag ..read more

Why You Should Fail

A world where nobody failed... A world where failure never existed, where everyone became who they wanted to be. As appealing it sounds, It’s not quite it. They couldn’t be the best, as everyone was in the lead, their life became pointless. Imagine each day being monotonous, No celebrating, no pride, No motivation, no new ideas. Everyone is a winner, except you don’t know when you won, Because you never learnt the difference between A ripe fruit from a raw one ..read more
