So I Will Wait

Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes

I was never the girl to be picked up from a bar. I was silent in school. I didn’t see my dad too often. Now you are reading and thinking it’s going to be one of those stories about daddy issues. I don’t know if it is. I have insecurities. I know I’m fucked up…

Hurricane

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

I waited anxiously. Knew it would come soon. Slowly at first, then with monstrous vigour, The dark clouds that spread, threatened to swallow the hemisphere. The treacherous seagulls fled. I tried desperately to light a candle, To ward off the darkness, that promised to engulf me, But nowhere I could find a lighter. The howling wind was the only music heard in the labyrinth, except for the worried beat of my own heart. I tried to recall the happy tunes, that were played years ago, But no melody lives in the chambers of my head. The force of the gale shattered all the windows. Broken glasses scattered everywhere. I struggled to put them back into their former shape, But the shards of glass dug into my skin. Oozing blood, I winced in pain. I cannot put the shattered pieces back in place. Outside, the trees danced to the violent rhythm of the storm, Creating ghost-like shadows that haunt me. The pitch blackness entertained their wile efforts, No light in the vicinity to chase them off. I prayed hard, for this torment to end, for the pain to disappear, for the fear to ebb, for the darkness to fade, for a light to save. Suddenly I woke up. All around me is quiet. What was that nightmare? I could not fathom, It is only a phantom, I told myself. Image Courtesy:http://67.media.tumblr.com

Heartless

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

“Heartless girl” they called her, you see her sitting with others, smiling, laughing, messing around…have you looked beyond those smiles? To see what she’s feeling inside? To see those lines of stress across her forehead? The dark bags underneath her eyes, how her smile drops all of sudden and her eyes take on a distant…

Let Go

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

You told me, if this doesn’t work out, we will let go of each other, let’s not just stay and be hurt. I agreed. Because I knew, we wouldn’t ever be perfect. But I did try. I tried with all my heart. Against all fiber of my being. I remember that day you held my…

The Missing

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

There will come a day when you will miss her. When you least expect it, There will be an emptiness within that you can’t quite place. You will miss her in parts. Her sleepy smile, And her complete inability to be less of anything. You will miss the way she loves and the way she…

Reminiscence

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

This highlight reel I have saved in my head, Of the fires that burnt bright, now lay dormant and dead, The happiness, the beauty I chose not to waste, Yet all of it gone, vanished without a trace. Where did it go and why did they leave, Absence is something I choose not to grieve, It…

Pictures

These pictures tell stories Of the places I never came to Of the firsts and the lasts I missed Of sleepless nights and hopeful mornings   These pictures, I want to forget, Want to remember, Want to burn, want to frame These pictures, Hold me together, tear me apart   These pictures I now toss…
