(Every morning I check my phone the first thing I see is news and it’s never a good one. It’s always about murder or assault, of my feelings, my hopes and of me. Meet me, I am a kashmiri) That worn out, hapless, petrified being, that turned down soul you see, that’s me. I can’t speak the word I know, I can’t seek the answer … Continue reading Untitled!
How are you? How have you been? In the past few days or months or let’s say years. Do you think you’ve been really enjoying life to the fullest? If yes, you can skip this post. If otherwise, I’d suggest to give it a quick read. Well, I’m writing this post for a reason. Through this I intend to share a personal experience that many … Continue reading That One Person…
(From the diary of a Kashmiri student living outside of Kashmir) It is 3 a.m. and I am not able to sleep. I have been trying for the past 3 hours but to no avail. And this isn’t happening for the first time, I have been through exactly twenty eight nights of sleeplessness since 5th of August, the fateful day when they decided to cut … Continue reading TRAPPED
Holding a glim of hope I looked for you far and wide I hunted for you in the deepest of chasms And the soaring heights alike O happiness! I’ve beared a lot To make you my part And be your abode forever Incessant times of agony, Restless nights and the aching heart All could pass hoping, That may be someday… you’d give me a call … Continue reading Not Anymore
You aren’t just walls and furniture, There is more to you Not just the faded old paints, there are my pencil scratches too Not just the broken windowpanes, behind them lies a saga, An array of tales laden with mischief and delight Not just a shelter, you’re a warm hug in the coldest of winters Not just a cover, you’re an escape from the scorching … Continue reading Home
Few months back I wrote a poem titled My Fight Song, inspired by Rachel Platten’s The Fight Song. The song has never failed to pick me up and has secured an eternal place on the list of my all time favourites. Today I felt like creating a follow up to my previous poem. I hope it inspires you too! Read and Relate I’m not listening … Continue reading My Fight Song (Part 2)
The nine month long wait ends here as she delivers a part of her Gambling her life she brings forth another! Biting her lips and eating the pain, She gives it all to make the way For the pearl to come out of the oyster! Drops of sweat decorating her face, blood covering her all up, there she lies with longing eyes To hold the … Continue reading Like a Warrior (A Mother’s Day Special)
Yet another feminine post, not feminist though! At first I thought it might be a dicey business to write one more women-oriented post that has chances of encouraging a bit of criticism too, mostly because it shares a similitude with one of my previous posts and I swear I resisted posting it, but as you can see I failed. But it’s not my fault fully, … Continue reading To Those of My Kind…
