fake smile

“Your smile is your asset” Someone once told me. My smile Now a thing of past That grin that i sport Is a painted one I donned this mask To potray the world outside That they can never hurt me How much ever they want Every morning Painstakingly but without fail I wield my brush…

The ghosts of our friendship

Ghost “You are such a big asshole” And the sound of our laughter Tuned out the other noises At that small diner Our once fave hangout spot, remember? The ghosts Of our good times Now haunts me, torments me And a dull ache blossoms Each time  I remember How you betrayed our trust.. Breaking that…

Tsunami

Unstoppable “You, puny little humans, think you can control me? I am unstoppable.  You cant restrain me!! ”  growled the gigantic wall of water. And as mother earth unleashed her magnanimous power,  us humans watched on in stupor.

under the gaze of world

STOP My mind screams, but the oblivious world keeps on stretching me out. My patience. My composure. Several pair of eyes, Looking , searching But what?  A sign of weakness, maybe.. Funny , I would rather hide Than enjoy the limelight. Stop scrutinizing my actions. Stop will you? Stop examining me. Under the lens  Of…

Music

Her slender fingers moved expertly on the cello, Sometimes gliding and sometimes plucking the delicate threads . As the world around her stepped into the trance created by her music, she stepped into an abyss of solace and passion. Eyes closed, her fingers wove magic into the air through its movement.The melody touched souls, playing…

Scarred in Love

The pink jarred lines, Adorned her slender wrists. A pool of liquid, satiny red; Gathered below, from her slits. Her face looked peaceful, though pale. Red lush lips curled up; As if mocking her fate. Her body lay; lifeless, Cocooned up like a fetus. As if it were shielding her, Away from suffering and pain….

Forbidden to forget

Knock knock knock “KNOCK, KNOCK” “KNOCK KNOCK!!!!” “Who`s there?, “I ask , inhaling sharply. I could hear the moaning of the floorboard like someone is rocking back and forth on his heels on the other side of the door. And all of a sudden, everything fell quiet, like the eerie calm before a storm. ….

Amidst the layers

Defeated, exhausted Standing in the middle Of the battlefield I gazed up at the sky Back arching  lifting up my body. I strip the armor which adorns every part of me And as the layers fall  Now you see the naked me The Blemished, scarred, scorned ME. And you hear me whispering, “Dear world, this…

My crush

SCREECHHH!! I heard a chair being dragged, Turned to see you sitting next to me Smiling playfully at me. My heart thumped a little faster. Sucking a breath in, “Don`t give a hint”, I schooled myself as usual. “Hi” , I finally whisper, smiling bright, But not too brightly. You always speak in that ever so charming manner…

Are you listening , little one?

Little kitty. That was a hot sweltering summer day, I was walking back home with my friend when I saw you all huddled up in the dirt mewling.Desperately trying to stand up but despite all  your efforts you landed on all of your four. So small you were. And immensely cute. My friend picked you up…

The making of ‘ME’

My story isn’t sweet or cute I would say, though I wish it were. Well most of my childhood I was trying to live by the policy- One day at a time. Every day was a struggle, every moment spent in forgetting and turning a blind eye to everything that happened around me, to me. Now…

Ofcourse, we enjoy autonomy..

Close your legs, whispered her mother.. Smile demurely and act feminine, dictated the society Bitch , how many times ? How many times would I have to put it into your thick skull that you are not to smile at the bastards in your class, her beau hollered as his fist rained blows on her…
