Nuntius Matris – A Mother’s message

Amidst the pattering of the rain on my window, Remember when we used to race raindrops, will you? Sweating in the sandbox, or rolling about in snow Wish on rainbows when you must, but save just a few. I rummage about my cupboards for promises unkept, ‘Charlie, Your princess’ in crayon it said and wept….

Off The Beaten Track

Before you get shocked halfway through reading this, I’ll just tell you now, this was a mother-daughter trip. Also, before condolences start showering in, the head of the family is completely healthy and lives with us. It’s just that the two of us thought that this would be an amazing experience. We had, however, thought…

Moonlit Muse

As the dying stoke of his cigarette reaches his fingers, void thoughts cripple him. Sitting beside the window on a rocking chair, drenched in moonlight, The outpour of his emotions seems to coagulate, and muffle in his own words. The quest for success runs in his blood. Yet the spirit to fight the battle seems…

Tsuzukeru – To Continue

  I have some magic tricks up my sleeve, I say, as I put on another smile. Humans are so easily distracted, so delusional, it’s almost amusing. Depression is a beast, gnawing my insides.   It lives on the epidermis of my skin, invisible. Not perpetually sad, beyond your grasp. It’s more than a dark…

Rants Of An Ashtray

It’s been 3 days since I last spoke. Not that I count days because the lines of tally would be such a waste for it, but my wall is upset about the 60 crosses which scratch it`s near perfect and impeccable whitewash every hour. As the click of the weight of my thumb falling with…

A Construction Worker At The Seaside

I’m a construction worker by the seaside. My meek weekly wages translate into 11 stories. 1. There’s a luxury hotel to my right. My eyes share a view with a 70 year old business-man In spite of my every-day fight With life, God and fate about how I can’t feed On his plate of gourmet,…

I wish…

  On the edge of the cliff the champion stands; staring down, into the abyss. His breath is steady, his fist clenched. His sword kisses the ground as the blood drips from its edge, his grip losing and his shield fastened to his back. The hustling tree leaves wither down to his knees as they…

Unravelling The Waves

As I sit here beside the sea-shore I think about how I could fall in love here. I see the light from across the street lamp Illuminating the waves in its golden hue As I sit across this majestic view and watch The amazing camaraderie between the sea and rocks As it comes back and…

The Circle Of Life

A wail pierced through and two smiles grew. The eyes glistened while happy tears threatened. What was once two, Became a family new.   Giggles and cries always fill the air, Whilst draining the energy of the ‘mere’. Clapping and squealing in delight, The tiny human crawled through life.   Woken up at the crack…

Logan – one last time

The year is 2029, no mutant births have been recorded in the last 20 years. The once raging Wolverine is now a mere alcoholic. The scene starts off with Logan (Hugh Jackman) getting beaten up by goons; Director James Mangold does not make a delay in setting the dark tone of the film, which is…

Free Lancing

Our generation is all for chaos. Steady jobs and cushy packages, Can never compensate for, wanting to be my own boss. Nobody gets to dictate my life, Nobody. That’s acceptable, no? To free-lance for a job? To never commit to an 8-to-5 living? And yet, To free-lance with my heart, Still brings judgment and prying…

Surrender and Soar

A flickering bulb, A pencil stub. An unfamiliar earring in his car, Or perhaps just a broken string in your guitar. The world screams Almost. Nearly. So close. Everything is your reminder, they’re alarms. You’re searching for fragments, To fill that hollow in your chest. Yet, you’re haunted. Those memories torment. Echoing in your thoughts,…
