So, I recently read the book, The Fault in Our Stars. I know many of you may say, “whoa! She hadn’t read it till now?” Yeah, I haven’t, because I avoid books filled with deep emotion, I don’t like books that force me to come face to face with these. I usually read books fullContinue reading “The Fault in Our Stars book review.”

My best friend and I,We gossip and talk.When we’re super bored,We take long walks.We stalk random people,And creep them out.Our walks are not normal, trust me.We take photos,Then gossip again.In the blink of an eye,Our topics change.I’m the weird one in our friendship,We go amazing together,We’re as similar as truth and fibs,Yeah, we’re actually totallyContinue reading “My best friend and I”
Tell the wind to wait,Its blowing too fast.Carrying you away,Not sure you’ll last.Tell time to stop,Everything’s knocking you off your feet,All you’re left with is memories.When you feel,Everything going swiftly by.In the blowing storm,Nobody can hear you cry.You need to carry yourself onward,With great strength moving forward.Tears streaming down your face,Nobody around,You have to carryContinue reading “Carry on…”
I sat outside staring at the stars,They looked right back at me,Twinkling from afar.The moon shining bright,Gazed lovingly at me.The night was cold,But I felt warm.As I existed in the darkness,Bedazzled by all the charm.While everybody’s asleep,The whole world inside my head is wide awake.I processed all the beauty,As falls the heavy veil of moonlightContinue reading “The stars, the moon and the lonely girl…”
Have you ever felt like the elephant in the room?The people in that corner, silently referring to you.The way they cast their looks,You understand it’s bad,You don’t know what they’re talking about,And it drives you mad.Your brain starts making all kinds of conclusions,Until you start feeling highly delusional.Is it my mind or are they reallyContinue reading “The elephant in the room”
I trip and fall around,Most of the times its my fault.Its because of those random things I drop on the ground.And when I do,Nobody is surprised.They just casually roll their eyes.I’m used to it though,It doesnt matter much to me.But when I show my mom the bruised knee,Her face starts to contort,As she aids me,Continue reading “The perks of being clumsy…”

imagination Hope I look forward to waking up each day,I look forward to come back here.This blissful place that I’ve created,This mindful space devoid of fear.Only happy thoughts can enter,The ones I’ve barely got.This is my centre,It is my core.This is my safe space,Where contentedness pours.Its where, the love I’m full of is stored.When lifeContinue reading “Day-67, Lockdown”
