SHORT STORY | Yes, I do!

Image credit: ebidenikstotzone Am I really doing this? I still can’t believe myself on this matter. Like girl, you’re so scared to even call the phone hotline to ask for directions but now, you’re up to this huge plan and you don’t even know if it will work. Beep beep! My phone vibrated and Matt’s face flashed on the screen. “Hey, I’m about half an hour away from his place now.” “Awesome! He’s away for some meeting at his office. Probably will be back about 4pm ish.” “Okay, thanks a lot Matt. For everything.” I started choking and my voice...

POETRY | The Silent Plea

Image credit: deconstructingyourself The harder the rain poured, The louder she screamed. The wind accelerated with force, Reigniting the once-forgotten reminiscence And it sent her hair flying in various directions. Memories as sharp as a sword bled her heart. The tears burnt through her eye sockets, Weakening her with each squeeze, And of reliving the happier days.

Poetry | Penchant of Sunrise

Image credit: The sun is entirely devoid of darkness It overpowers the universe with its intense flare Feels like an enormous volcanic wind scratching the surface of earth It prides on the mere fact that there can only be ‘one’ who radiates the gleam Temperamental by nature It can be mildly soothing or menacingly fierce Rules with an iron fist and is afraid of none No room for emotional attachment, As blaze is constantly fuelled We aim to be that To transcend all the limits that has been long established To emerge as the imperium that would always...

SHORT STORY | Birthday Gifts

Image credit: It was bound to happen any minute now. I took a peek at the old, brown grandfather’s clock sitting behind me; us alone in the dining room under a light as glorious as a mountain’s sunset, as old as the age I was about to turn into. It happens once every year, once the clock reaches twelve and I become a year wiser (yet closer to my unpreventable death), I would hear a fickle of the faintest footsteps at my door, like that belonging to the feet of a little girl no older than five, but as I slip into my warm robes...
