Day 45: When Dad left for his Maker…

It's been a while I've wanted to write and tell you things. Tell you why I've not been around of late. I couldn't gather the courage. For I know, the pain that I feel, you'd feel too. But here I am. Finally. Making a lackadaisical attempt. Exactly, a year ago, this time, I had jotted... Continue Reading →

Trade

"Maa, did the bear take away your other bangle too?" asked the little girl. "Yes, darling" nodded the mother, eyeing the pink dress hidden in the corner. This wasn't the last time when desires were traded for dreams. ~~~~~ Written for the prompt #trade on Instagram. If you are on Instagram, you can find it here. ~~~~~... Continue Reading →

A Pinch of Pine

So December is upon us... Are you thinking of resolutions already? Or are you rushing to fulfil some forgotten dreams? I? I am of a queer mood this month. I want to take leave of the routine and wander off to some place unknown. I wish to dig my nose in dried out roses, feel... Continue Reading →

Year-End Jitters

As the year draws to an end, why is there a heightened sense of urgency? Why is there a yearning to have realized every dream, have every wish fulfilled? Why do my feet ache for a globetrotting escapade, to leave footprints in Rome, Russia, and all the cities on my checklist? Why does the heart... Continue Reading →

When Dad turned 50

As a kid, I loved to celebrate birthdays. The best part about them were - A week prior to the birthday, Dad would ask what I'd loved to do and he would get me a present around that. When I was 8 or so, I’d told him that I loved to read stories. So for my... Continue Reading →

Convalesce

An ethereal shift An enter to exit No backspace Nothing to erase ♥ No feelings No control Free as a dove No more in love ~~~~~~~ Asha Seth

Thoughts

Words escape my mind, but thoughts never leave. Caught in a whirlwind, this is what perplexes me... What happens when you miss someone? Do they miss you too? What happens when your heart misses a beat? Does it get passed on to someone somewhere Needing it to live? What happens when we blink our eyes? The things we miss... Continue Reading →

On Christmas

It’s Christmas and the time of the year when everyone around is celebrating and enjoying is praising and worshiping moms busy making Christmas cookies kids waiting for Santa and gifts ♥ I too want to believe that Santa is for real and travels on sleighs pulled by reindeer that he grants wishes and makes dreams...

Uncertain

The walks I take In the evenings, cold and dreary With the sun setting on the horizon I’m uncertain where I want to go The mornings I spend Wishing this and that Unhappy with what I have I’m uncertain about what I want The notes I make Sitting on the porch Writing and striking words...

If We Ever Meet Again

On restless evenings, filled with utter hopelessness, Lying sprawled under the ceiling, weaving mindless fantasies. I wish for the hundredth time, that we crossed paths, someday. And also curious, that if we ever met again, what would it be like? A thousand memories lie scattered on the floor, From that day, when it all ended.... Continue Reading →

Maybe

maybe it's true, maybe we are not meant for each other maybe how we feel when we are with each other, may not be true maybe we are just fooling ourselves, maybe exploiting each other to get past things we know will never happen but we so desire maybe it’s just me or maybe it’s...

And for once…

…and for once  I want to forget everything that didn't work out I want the sad memories to fade away and be followed by only the happy ones… tonight, can I leave behind? the heartaches caused by the impossible would-bes… can I step aside? and make way for the crippling afflictions to pass… can I look...
