Lip balm.

Unlikely title? Yeah. But I just had to share my obsession for lip balms. The worst part is that they have so many different shapes, forms, flavors (candy, fruity, soft drinks…) and colors that you can never have them all. Especially the ones that are limited edition, that are made only for Christmas or any…

Lost

The warm sand tickled the soles of my feet. In the distance, I could hear gulls cawing. I ran over the scorching warm sand towards the azure sea. The gentle waves lashing towards me had been luring me towards them; I had to give in to the siren’s call… I waded through the knee-deep water…

Aren’t we all shadows?

Shadows Aren’t we all shadows? Shadows – hazy images of a person; a person you want to be. Aren’t we all replicas of the ‘cool kids’, the queens, jocks and cheerleaders? Aren’t we shadows of them? We were ourselves, as children when we were confident and proud to be who were; unique,rare and special… Today…

Goodbye

Goodbye… You can never leave after you say goodbye. I’m still standing here, in the inky gloom, holding onto your last words. Tiny pinpricks of light- stars you had called them, light up the dark of the sky; but no one can light up the darkness in my heart. Goodbye… Isn’t this the last farewell;…

Bulletproof

Stone hard, machine gun, Fire at the ones who run, Stone hard as bulletproof glass – Sia, Titanium She never falters. Confident. Flawless. The epitome of perfection. She is a star, in the night sky; a rare gift. She stands a little taller; her smile- brighter than the rest. You could try to shoot her…

War

What war means to me War is nothing more than a stray word, a mere argument, that claims billions of lives, destroys everything you have ever known. It scars you, changes you. It tears you away from the ones you love, shatters dreams, hopes; blots away live like a pen on a paper. The feeling…

Us

You were the rhythm to my heartbeat, the smile to my tears, the yes to my every no. You were the sun, I was the moon; we were perfect. We were hope and trust, bound together by faith and destiny. We were opposites, but that only brought us closer, held together by an unbreakable bond;…

Misfit

They shine like stars, I’m the forgotten night sky. They are diamonds, I’m the piece of coal. I know I’m a misfit, here. Cliches, cheerleaders and jocks; parties and queen bees- I never understood it all. I’m an anomaly here. I’ve always been different, a wallflower. The kind of person you would never notice. Nothing…

Remember Me

You have no idea, how much I’ll miss you. I just saw the sun; and now the clouds are back again… will you miss me too? I’ll miss your smile, your comforting laugh, the warmth in your eyes, the way you were just there- I guess I took your presence for granted. There is so…
