Valor

Be wary of a certain kind of valor, for it is in the trance of having suppressed the most feral of urges to sin, is when men are most susceptible to fall for the greatest of hitherto benign temptations.Read more …

To Live

To live is to know, and I know I don't know how to live. The protocols, the norms, too much to remember. Where was I when this "Manual" was being handed to, apparently, everyone? People just seem to "know" it, everything. What to do, what to utter, what to think, where to draw the line, how to respond, when to respond, where to hold back, where to drop the guard, when to yell, when to be silent. People are busy living life, knowing everything, being at the right place at the right time.…Read more …

Silently

You have to suffer alone to be able to give your suffering a meaning. Your sacrifices will only be fruitful if you alone traverse through the terrain of pain. Every adversity you face has a barometer that comes with it. Every hardship comes with a maximum reading and then pop it goes like a balloon and you are showered with joy you never thought existed. The pressure rises faster if you keep your pain to yourself and do not endeavor to accumulate sympathizers and worse if you pull into your circle of pain,…Read more …

Like an Idiot

A throbbing hell, as if it were an organic being designed to chastise me only. When all these people with a common lack of sense, common sense is it called? Zombiewalk towards something that some perhaps above average person has brought to light only by figuring out a trend of it being successful in societies that have absolutely no morals at all. Freedom of expression and "all done in good humour" prevails! Everywhere you look on the internet there are people blindly following trends that have been long used, abused and thrown away by…Read more …

Left Brain, Right Brain, No Brain Disorder

I'm calm, composed and yet I feel my internal organs are collapsing one by one. I can’t say how many of them have malfunctioned already and how many are left. So much for worrying about my vital signs.. I think I have been shot, but I don’t know where and who did it, and why.. Through the smiles I feel I’m bleeding. It happens only so briefly that I can’t switch my expressions. It’s like the mechanism has become rusty. I used to be good at this, switching faces. Elegantly, swiftly swapping masks. I…Read more …

Time, Dreams and Empty Bullet Shells

Ever been through a time when you thought you were the only thing in the world, unique and significant. Someone that mattered to everyone and nothing mattered to you. Someone that caused the winds to go the other way. someone who could see in the dark, someone who could count the droplets of rain. When everything had a second chance. You could take all the risks in the world. You had nothing to lose. You thought you could time travel ! When every day you had the same world to go outside to. Every…Read more …

The Other Side of Hope

Behind the garden of hope there are ruins. A palpitating heart, afraid to accept the other side of hope. Barren, fathomless, dead planes. Beneath the silver cloud of hope there is shade, beneath the silver cloud of hope there is darkness! For a wounded soul there is fear, for a believing soul there is survival. For a survived heart, there are smiles, infinite colors and showers in the meadows of submission. Eternity breathes in a state of nothingness. Slow, calm, lungful breaths. You find hope as the other side of hope.   Arqum…Read more …

Jani & The Thin Guy – The Bus

It was past noon, the sun was up, broadcasting its light and heat but nobody had the courage to look up and locate it. It wasn’t necessary, for the sun was playing the role of a flame thrower that day, well that had generally been the everyday story. The thin guy walked towards the bus stop and walked right into the waiting shed without looking up only to realize there was no waiting shed there anymore. A big construction truck of some sort grunted as it appeared out of the corner of the…Read more …
