Fever Dream

She was his fever dream, his ruination, his damnation, his Annalise. He stole her in the night, held her captive in his ivory tower. After all, she was his little star and he wanted to spend all his eternity with her. With her aquamarine eyes, her cheeks glowing a delightful shade of pink, her lips [...]

Mary and Max

In new city, homesick, lost and absolutely closed off and shy, I started spending way too much time in the library. I would read, doze off or just browse internet, to say I was lonely is an understatement, I was hopelessly forlorn. Similar to Mary and Max, I made a very aged yet intellectual friend. [...]

These feelings are hard to find!

We were on cusp of meeting the world, two lonely kids facing the sun with their shadows falling behind them Our different perspective warred with each other but also came together as a beautiful amalgamation of contradictory thoughts co-existing and nurturing each other. Never Imposing, Never cruel! I saw cosmos through his eyes, in its [...]

This Benign Sickness

I stumbled upon the sickness inside my head, Far from perfect, My flaws were ugly, They weren't physical but went deeper and marred my soul. Tendency to hurt break and leave came easy My inability to feel remorse My inability to hold on My inability to bond Got me worried sick Some part of me [...]

A Winter Fall-out

Nuclear ash. As far as my eyes can see, it is dawn of perpetual nuclear winter. I close the window before the cold gust of wind could bring the abominable particles inside. My bones feel weary and brittle, it was nothing but a miracle of sort to have lived this long. To be able to [...]

Anathema

Believed in all the cliched stories Dreamed a stale version of you Made you out of my calm and peace Painted you with colors of my dreams Dressed you in fancy of my lies That conformed to all my vice Yet, Fate didn't listen to these wishes That I put forth in the dark of [...]

Echoes Of Vanity

His was beauty ethereal Reflected to him in calm waters All he admired All he cared was beauty of his own reflection With a love not lost yet cursed with a voice that repeats She was a nymph mortal Immortalized by her own reiterations The fates erred played a cruel jest And her heart was [...]

Semper Fidelis

We are flesh and bone disintegrating into each other, Passing time or finding one another, I had lie and say that your eyes is the only thing I see, But this elastic heart has no interest in holding you to me. I'd lie and say that You are the only one I want, I'd lie [...]

Temple of Sin

  Those beady black eyes peered at me and my heart was gripped by the clammy hands of dread. Those blue-black wings reflected off an ethereal sheen but it wasn't enough to conceal the malice that was part of this place. This place and this bird, following my every movement with keenness that belied the [...]
