May be I haven’t seen much But life is too precious for wasting in rush. So I'll take it slow and easy ‘til the clock of my universe ticks again, Letting the hatred sink in. My times would rule and that's when the game begins The veins would pulsate again With the black beating of the...

  The burning sensation of chagrin, Those thoughts weaved in a chain. Having close resemblance to asbestous Desperate to be blown out in the flames, No scars come without percepts.

Being a woman myself, Is an honour I feel, Every soul in which is a truth, And not a character amidst the reels.

His face dropped with a frown, Forlorn and alone, he looked, The stony blue eyes were raging a storm, Confusion laced with grief and pain, As he racked his heavy and drooping brain, he couldn’t remember anything, His mind groped for a sliver of a memory, Of your enchanting face or a stolen kiss, But your mind...
Blue-green eyes of a forlorn man, distraught with grief and far beyond, Aching tears welled in his eyes, fell on his boots without a second thought, brown and (slightly) speckled were they, an alarming expression clouded his face, death shrouded his beautiful and endearing creature its lifeless form lay on his lap, shredding his sanity bit...

I stay silent, amongst my twinkling peers, As I watch the eight year old, who fears, Compelling his mother to move his toys inside, Lest they get lonely and scared in this night sight. I'm in a shape, yet shapeless, I'm surrounded by many, yet alone, I provide the...
The night is same, Dark and vast, And lifted with gloom, Like any other night.
