It’s one of those nights When I feel like a frazzled rag Spread over my bed Shriveled With a mound of random pieces That form my life Pastels here Laptop there A bag of chocolate chips… But I feel like that dainty rag again Defying the vehement pull of the earth Like any moment It’s...

The Hollow Men – TS Eliot
Listening to The Hollow Men almost on a loop these days. So, I felt like sharing with you too… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSRXinuM-GI&t=3s There’s so much to say about this poem, but my every word fails against listening to it in silence with eyes closed. Try it. P.s. the video is a bit trippy, only listen to it.
Middle of Nothingness
One of those vacuous days When your mind comes to a sharp halt There’s no left or right You are existing in the middle of everything Or middle of nothingness And it’s not the eye of the storm When all the elements and emotions Are flying frantically around you It’s like Being suspended in a...

The sweetest surprise is getting a review on your book. Surprise, because my reviews are scattered across the internet (which sucks, but ok) So sometimes I find one days later.

They say we turn into a star When our soul floats away Unshackled from our form Like dainty feathers of a dandelion Crumbling to the lightest winds But … We both knew Stars belong to the night And get swallowed by heat When I’m being torched In the broad day light So, You flew right...

I lay hereSprawled over Under the cold ashen skyOn the dampness of the shore My broken wings Fanned out in a circleMy heartbeat Fainting in my hollow core Winds numbing and hurting My tips and toesWaiting to be swallowed aliveI can’t fight anymore The giant is galloping nowSeething tyranny in its eyesOur gaze meet for...

The mess life of a writer is…
This is where I start crying... I thought I should resume work on my second book which was in selection and editing phase simultaneously…at least the last time I checked… But now, when I opened it after half of an eternity, I don’t even know what I’m looking at. Is this my manuscript? like…what happened?... Continue Reading →

The email from google map timeline was a reminder that 2021 have actually been quite eventful. Our mind focuses on the negative events and we often forget the positive ones sooner.
