Catching Fear

Catching fear in my palms, I knew I was devoid of hope, yet I still pushed on with the gossamer silver cord of life. Bang! BanG! BANG! Three knocks, in precise, it was the third consecutive three knocks, I was locked in a janitor’s storeroom, no exits, no space for life, no escape, at all. The thingContinue reading “Catching Fear”

Clouds

What a queer sight to witness! A dark, murky, yet elegant spectrum of colours frolicking with the sunset, as if they playing hide-and-seek. I was imagining myself as the strutting peacock formed by the sporadic clouds, seeking pride from all places, quizzaciously belittling my surroundings, reckoning that I, only I reigned supreme over all creations.Continue reading “Clouds”

Broken Silver Cord

The petrichor was promulgated, there was no rainbow, nor a clear sky, it was greeted with another wave of eerie sombre clouds wafted above us, mantling the day with a unwelcoming shadow of death itself.

Buried Rose

The muddy ground slapped across my face, my consciousness was back, I was being dragged by an overwhelming force, my body was devoid of energy, I could not react, but to succumb to this force. I pried open my eyes, darkness, moonlight were the resplendent glow that caught my eyes. A gigantic figure was pullingContinue reading “Buried Rose”

Blue, Blue Sky.

The polished jet black grand piano stood signularly across the room, the strings were beating in a melodious tone, the keys were capering gracefully, dancing in the rhythm of the heart, and moulding the shape of you. I postured myself in a comfortable position, the grand piano was placed in a vicinity where sunlight orContinue reading “Blue, Blue Sky.”

Close, But Not Close Enough

Suit and tie in place, cologne not too overwhelming, a little tinge of courage was what I needed. I made sure every inch of my outfit was ironed properly, no creases were allowed in this attempt in meeting the one that I furtively loved for years. this is my chance, don’t screw things up.  I marchedContinue reading “Close, But Not Close Enough”
