Decline

Decline. The world is running short of words and before I could even try keeping one safe beneath my tongue, you squeezed more silence in my mouth. The world is a handful of lost dreams and I place each one of them in my eyes. Sometimes when I cry, they fall down and hence are…

Does it count?

Love, I saw you in my dream last night. You were standing right beside the lake we spent our nights when we were together. Your skin was bathing in the moonlight and I was in my room adoring you from distance. Why do you keep a distance from me? Am I too fragile to get…

The way we love

I love the way we lie to each other by saying that the future will be ours. I love the way we whisper promises in the silent night as if we both will be able to nurture them under our shade of urgency. Is it selfish to keep someone with you even after knowing that…

Pause, maybe.

For once and for all, I want things to stop. Let the things end and never begin. Not necessarily death but perhaps a momentarily pause or a deep sleep. I want memories breathing under the shade of your arms to die for I have filled the caverns of my heart with unburnt ashes. Today I…

Another odd dark night

The world around me is collapsing, like the old plastered roof of an ancient house, slowly shredding layers of human touch and efforts. I think and I think, and then I go numb. I sit between those cemented red bricks while my mind pursues to make heart my home again. I hear my home falling….

Autumn And Fall

“It’s Autumn, things are falling, maybe in place.” I sometimes wonder what made you fall in love with me because I am a web of thoughts people always wanted to get rid off. I have no idea of why and when you made a place in my heart, but I feel I know you from…

Love personified (Fictional Prose)

‘Something inside me tells me to hold on to this moment, let my breaths palpitate in the motion of your words. Let me hold on to these stars, the ever shining moon, the simple grey clouds, nothing seems to be poetic there, even though it contains every detail of inspiration I carved in my poetry….

The Faults in Our Love

We sugarcoat love so that it doesn’t sound awful and unworthy and hence we fail. Some love never deserves an ending or a beginning. They just happen in an instant and last till another instant. Who knows where it will end or it will end or not. There’s nothing as miserable and as beautiful as…

Marriage Demands (Insane prose)

Journal Entry: 5 or 6 Date: 25 July 2018 Time: Running like a snail Venue: All in my head Reason: Sh! Depress… It’s a crime. I wish I could poison my mind so that it doesn’t think of anything that matter and sink into boredom that already exists. I wish I could poison my heart…

Voids and Paradoxes

They promise to complete us on the whole but leave us hollow. You know the thing about pain, it leaves you with void no one can attempt to feel. The void with ice and fire together, burning and soothing, dying and living, the void of paradoxes. I am made of crisply crumbled paper containing words…
