There is this uncomfortability that I’m feeling. (Don’t I love making up new words here😄). It just won’t let me be. I’ve tried writing about my day and how it went down, but no, something was missing. I just couldn’t feel me in the drafts i’ve discarded. So I write this thing making me notContinue reading “Couldn’t think of a title.”

What is it?
Surges of tiredness. Bouts of lag. I think that best explains my last two months. Not continuously though. I can wake up some days feeling on top of the world. Literally. When my body goes along with whatever my mood is. While there are days like today, when I wake up with an aching body.Continue reading “What is it?”
The man and fear.
I was watching some YouTube clip of some man today. I wanted to call him a guy, but that didn’t suit him. He was kinda old. But not the veins-and-wrinkles-in-the-neck kind of old. So we’ll just call him The man. So the man was talking about something I had an interest in. And he didn’tContinue reading “The man and fear.”

I see pictures of you. Breath taking as usual. I’m curious about your life. What happened to you? How has your life been? Have you undergone brokenness so deep you felt like dying? In all your pictures you look happy or calm and composed. I’m envious of that. I’m doing good, but I miss beingContinue reading “Stalking.”
I sat next to a man yesterday in a lopha. I wanted to skin him alive for getting the window seat. Not when it was evening and the orange hue of the sun was visible. And as we started moving, the sun in its majesty took a peak from the extremely dark clouds. It wasContinue reading “Soak. “
Just like the sunset.
My home town has the most amazing sunset I’ve ever seen. And being a sunset addict, I’ve seen different types of sunsets to the extent that I now know how to spot one that’s coming from miles away. This one beckons me from the house. And weirdly enough, it’s only last year that I noticedContinue reading “Just like the sunset. “
Today I’ve had one of those introspective days. I would almost say melancholic but my thoughtfulness has not come with sadness. Everything just seemed blurry and unmeaningful but meaningful at the same time. Its not a day I’ll remember, but its a day well lived. I’ve listened to a woman today. A woman I wouldContinue reading “Random”
