am i loyal, brave and true?

21 indeed is a weird age. I wander and wonder, why are things the way they are, what is it going to be in the future, when am I going to meet someone special, how to keep my principles in check from the dread of life, who are the people that I can really depend […]

a grain of salt

Vast is the sea that roams across the planet Earth, covering almost 70 percent of it, splashing lively with life. The skies above me are the beautiful paintings that paints my view with ever-changing yet not mundane patterns, aurora beams are my favourite, they are wavy like me, but they are have more splendor than […]

Edge

My breath was catching with the wind, erratic and breezy. I climbed up, stone by stone, crevices by crevices, finding firm foot-holds to prevent myself falling to my death.

Kafka on The Shore by Haruki Murakami (Book Review)

Another masterpiece by Murakami, this time he flawlessly tied two completely unrelated stories into one. His style in writing is nonchalant and yet his skill really shows in this novel. Two parallel stories ran at the same time, one with Kafka Tamura and another with Nakata. They simply laced together in the end, merging two […]

The chief took a sip from the steamy cup and replied, “Ignore it.” “But chief, our systems will crash permanently if he cont…” “Fuck […]

Solitary Loop (Part 4)

I was back in the void of nothingness again. This time welcomed with a cry of defeat. I sat there, back at my initial spot, crying myself out, balling my eyes to the void beneath me. The sadness was impending, a premonition, almost. I could not imagine what my head would be like after this. […]

Solitary Loop (Part 3)

Tap. Tap. Tap. “It is only ten seconds sir.” one of the lab men reported. “And so?” the chief commander seemed not bothered as he heaved a deep one from his cigarette. “His train of thoughts is back to normal.” The chief gently flicked off the ashes onto an aluminium tray, “Nothing special?” “No information from […]

Solitary Loop (Part 2)

I woke up in a pitch black place, cloaked in a patient robe, shone by a spotlight, boundless. I got up almost immediately from my spot. My body was perfectly alright. An image of me sprang in front of me like a giant screen glaring down on my puny existence. The image was static. Nothing […]
