Skin Deep Realities

There comes a time when things fall apart, nothing goes as planned, all expectations are shattered, there are obstacles at every nook and corner, every bend of the road goes uphill and there is no end in sight. You feel frustrated, angry, helpless, afraid, sad, alone, stupid and hopeless. You look back and see how…

My Perfect Pair of Jeans

  You taught me to feel again,  in all the ways that I’d forgotten, I was sheltered in a cocoon I considered could never be broken, you proved me wrong when you breached my shields so easily, made me set my guards down so well,  that I never even knew the person who stepped outside. It felt like I was…

Ride A Magic Carpet

take a ride on a magic carpet fly away from the little things chase those whims and thrills conquer dreams in the realm of kings It seems like I’ve been through a revolving door between fantasy and reality. But oh how tempting it is! To stay back in that wonderland – where nothing is too…

You Make No Sense

there was no past to remember, and forget, there is no future, to long for, and wait, there is no present, to consider, and let go, there is nothing to honestly think about anymore. It’s like a buzzing bee that you cannot ignore. And it gets worse when there are others around you that glance…

Be My Vulnerability

Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren’t always comfortable but they are never weakness. It is awkward. We aren’t used to exposing our raw nerves, are always told not to do so. Never shed a tear, or show fear, never get angry, or offend too badly, are lessons taught in…

Ignorance Can Be Bliss

Sometimes it is best to not know. There are levels of hope. There is the first of wishful thinking. Things, aspects, ideals that you hold of how you life should be or span out, and aren’t too attached to the outcome. Sometimes you only have a vague idea of the outcome. It is something that…

Broken Rules

“You dance secretly inside my heart, where no one else can see.”- Rumi They were only fantasies. Whims that I acted in front of the mirror, with an imaginary dance partner, under the shield of my blanket, within the comforting embrace of the night. This was only an notion others confessed about, I silently prayed…

Taking Chances

“Trust your heart if the seas catch fire, live by love though the stars walk backward.” ― E.E. Cummings This is what I was reading a fortnight before I had to make the decision. For many, a weekend away with cousins is something they’d look forward to, something that would evoke excitement and the anticipation…

I’m That Girl

I’m that girl. The one by staring out a moving bus, wistful, while the morning gazes by. The one who eats fast, then slow and then just sits quiet for a while. The one who walks weird. The one who talks too much or too little and observes everything and everybody. The one who frowns more often…

Real World Millennial Problems

Firstly, who are millennials? People born from the late 70’s to early 00’s are termed as Millennials or Gen Y. Born on or after 2005, fall under Gen Z, and the Baby Boomers or Gen X are the folks who’ve been born rough from mid 60’s to mid 70’s. Enough has been said about millennials. A mere…

Travel Back In Time

If you could go back in time, would you change things? I get stuck in conversation. I fight battles in my head and win. I’m a fucking warrior in there. Outside? Not so much. There is an itch I feel on my lower back when I think of the past, and elude calling some experiences…
