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. The sun was peeking by the horizon, I looked up and caught its carefully spilled glimmer about the russet skies, contouring the clouds with slight redness. […]

Solitary Loop (Finale)

The alarms blared in the control room, one of the lab men shouted, “This American is trying to overload our systems.” A coffee drop was formed from the last filtration process. 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. […]

The wrenching pain that both of them had to endure was immense, almost idiotic, but what is love when it could be explained? Beep… K was an inherited cancer patient, he was at death’s door as he was at her […]

3.14159…

Happy PI day! For those who are Math-lovers or have a special preference for numbers, this is a day worth celebrating. However on this gracious day, we also lost one of the most prominent figures in the Science world (Physics)- Stephen Hawking. He was and is one of my inspirations, although I have barely read […]

HESITANT #finale

Why did I not use the death ray? Why did I not dodge the attack? Why am I so weak? Why can’t I keep my promise? Why can’t I protect her? Why? Just why? Why am I… My thoughts were blame-filled to the brim, the past had happened, I needed to capitalise on the remnants of the […]
