Deep mind

Head is blurred. Mind is knotty. Thought is tangled. Missed words? Never mind. Just prompts. Depth of thought. Meanders in your mind. Paths inside your head. Better now? Should be. May be. Just thoughts. Now I think better. Now I feel sober. Now I know. Any other grief? Not at all, chap. Just plots.  …

Third world

We tell our girls to be free, but not from society. We raise them to be ambitious, but not too much. We say we believe in their power in a house made of four walls. We ask them to follow their dreams then call them bad mothers. We tell them your bodies are temples when…

My love for tragedies.

If you didn’t know this about me, I sort of live for tragedy. I love a good sad story. All those sad war movies, the star-crossed lovers who can’t be together stories, or basically any sad story, obsess me. Sort of like when twelve year old me loved The Fault In Our Stars and the…

Love at first sight.

I could write a book

Concordance.

Shackles

This cage was unbreakable. This one’s inescapable. No matter how hard one tries, he can’t let himself out. He cried and screamed yet was never heard. A smile always covered his sorrows. He was surrounded by water yet cannot quench his thirst. His eyes watered but lips never said a word. How could a man…
