Learning to breathe…


Life takes turns on its own and you are always in an ocean. Most of the time, you’re on a ship—a ship of your dreams or a ship of your wishes or something else. But there are times when it breaks and you fall in the water. The waves become walls of water, ready to […]

Sleep…


Close your eyes with me, We’ll be free to dream, Of all the things that you love, Of what the future may seem… Here, hold my hand, I promise I won’t let go, Feel the strength where Our love can grow… Laugh with me, While we sleep, Talk with me and Make memories to keep… […]

I’m sad but I can’t cry


I’m very sad, but I can’t cry, My eyes burn but they remain dry, What is this happening? I wonder… Is my heart dying and so am I? I feel pain, I feel I do… The emptiness in my heart, I feel it too, But how to release this weight, I’m unsure, How can I […]

Echoes in the Rain


My heart will always beat Through all the love and all the pain, But what keeps it really going Are the echoes in the rain! All my love that was Yours, Was so deep and so insane, But what it is becoming Are the echoes in the rain! Memories of smiles that were real, Of […]

Crazy in the Moonlit Night


I dip my feet in the still water Create ripples in my heart, It’s that feeling that you’d be alright Being crazy in the moonlit night! I walk where Darkness crawls and whirls, Hide the flowers in my heart, I want to be hazed out of sight And be crazy in the moonlit night! I […]

Break up? Break up! Break up.


Written in response to a challenge from a friend: “Write a story that will never give a sense of complain or look backs in the past, or death (that’s a no no). However the theme of the story should be on a break up.” “That’s it, then. You’re off to a fresh start!”—exclaimed Ayn as […]

…I touched the stars


Born in the downtrodden slum under the Hodulia Bridge in Jammatnagar, I was neither privileged nor much wanted. But I happened… I was the fifth child of a 37-year-old woman, with no one to look after us. She worked in the rich people’s homes but earned too little to feed her growing brood. We ate […]

Day 243rd


‘Do you think I’m forgetting something?’ she asked. I looked into her eyes, trying my best to say ‘Yes’. ‘I think I am.’, she continued. ‘It’s 10th November… a Tuesday… There is something I cannot remember, Charlie.’ I took out my collected stash of one and two dollar coins that Maxine would either drop or forget […]

Drifting Apart…


Have you ever observed how it feels When two hands holding each other Lets go, slowly? Have you noticed How the fingers untangle themselves; How the palms let air fill up the space in between? I have. I have seen it happen, To me and to many people around… I have seen how tears warm […]

Faded…


Was it your hand, I thought I felt? Was it? Are you here, my dear? I can smell your presence though… Tell me please, if you’re near… Tell me what you see outside — Isn’t there a big window about here? I feel the sunlight gently warm my palms, I can tell the sky is […]

Last night I had a dream


Last night I had a dream- Where a little girl came walking down the lane… In her hand she held flowers And told me that they’re not for sale…   I smiled at her, Thinking that is what she expected to see, But she looked at her flowers and said, “Fake smiles they can never […]

Nature’s Love


The waves kept crashing into the ship. One after another, they broke on the deck and created the highest crests and deepest troughs the Capt’n had even seen in his 25 years at sea… It was as if the captain had to decide to change the usual course. The waves kept coming, relentlessly. The Capt’n […]

For ever and a day


“Mom”, he piped. No one replied… “Mooooooomm”, he called, this time with all the strength he had in his tiny chest. He was feeling so sorry for himself. It was that stupid accident in school that put him in that hospital bed! The monitor on his left, that showed waves of green and kept beeping […]
