And now, when the cell vibrates, rings, With a century to my score, adding in, My happiness having no bounds again. My... Continue Reading →

After a tiring day at the CIA, I returned home- my heaven. Hardly had I dropped on my couch, when the doorbell rang. Hesitantly I got up and decided to have a look at my visitor through the peephole. All I could see from the peephole was a man in white hoodie, his face- a... Continue Reading →
Beware! I'm not what I seem! These mere shows of dross, All this glow, this fancy facade, Engulfs the deep darkness within. Beware! This glistening body, Pleasing outside it beholds, Shelters a vile, crushing soul, That crouches and weeps within. Beware!

The dark fickle clouds glided in, Completely shading the mighty sun, Eager for striking my dead ground, A perfect setup made to reform, A fierce storm to rage within, The dark purple clouds roared, Inviting the great storms within, A storm of fresh, diverse ideas, A storm of firm grit, determination, A storm of precious...

She went on, "How are we suppose to survive?.", letting out... Continue Reading →
Trotting eagerly towards that direction, Roaring, glistening waves, calling her, And clearly washing her transient feet. Never-ending waves rising, then falling, Straight off, waters ebbing to far lands, Incessant, reinstate to kiss the gold sands. Entering the waters, she took a glimpse of, Neat mirroring yet not steady, fading, Contemplating with pain, life's transience, Even... Continue Reading →
Tossing and turning eternally, In my terrible, thorny bed, Troublesome thoughts tottering, In my timid, untamable mind, Tailing off totally, my temporary, My already tampered slumber, Time ticking tick-tick leisurely, Thwarting my tired eyes to close, And adore the treasure of tranquility, My troubled self totally saturated, My torso trembling under the tangled sheets, The...
