Stop! Stop where you are. Move not your mouse. Click not another link. Deny your brain of any escape-thought. For now, for this moment, forget the rest and enter this quest. For, this, I swear, shall bring out your best. Sir or madam, whoever you are, come here and contemplate. …

Thy Unfortunate

Hundred years you wish to live! How many for your greed? How many for your soul? To become a slave – the first twenty To get accustomed the next To realize the undesired- one moment Only to get going again Unwillingly we do the doing Risk is not a choice …

Ode to Art

When the warm still night just echoed some mechanical noises of air conditioners fluttering through the muggy air from the neighboring boxed apartments, the geometrical sky screeched out its bosom for unveiling  some heart wrenching facts about some pseudo urban existence.   when still, girls just think about being domestic …

Kohl and Mascara

it was a night, a mediocre one. where i felt like nobody. i just felt like a swinging shadow, flying and fluttering in the air. it was a night, a mediocre one. where i felt low and shallow. where i needed to solidify my existence. i needed to deck myself …
