SHORT STORY | The Walk With A Lover by CA Yin

She stepped into the dark with a smile. The smell of jasmine lured her further into the park. Her footsteps were steady as she walked barefoot on the grass. As a child, she had never been afraid of the dark. In fact, she had enjoyed its embrace as twilight darkened the skies and nightfall beckoned her. The dark was so much kinder to her than the taunts of children at school, than the scolding of teachers when homework was left undone, than the anger of adults who were supposed to care for her. Now, herself an adult, she felt...

Inside the house, The flame is bright, In the sooty kitchen, The air is painted with scented herbs, The dancing onions on the sparkling oil, Of the sweet curry with the...

POETRY | The Road, The Riddle by Aad

I have the mist of the dawn in my mind The things I see are few With my fingers, Through grey darkness I feel my long way through No clue about the route But the lighthouse which my conscience follows It burns right, a welcoming sun, a forever-telling sign I keep from the world my clumsiness Well hidden, just like me With that secret, My mask created, I came exactly to be What others want to see But the moonlight which pierces through my facade It justly paints my gracelessness To the world, it’s my worst I listen to...
