Mair

I lay here still, As the dawn breaks, Thinking over my past... all the things I regret, Not sure if I want to look forward to another day, What is so great, I cannot say, There are real people conquering their quests, Achieving their one dream, I do not even have one, Mine concur of...

Ablaze

There she stood in front of the mirror, She could see her bed neatly done in the reflection, That night phased in and out of terror, Taking refuge in her parents room - the floor felt warmer, How could she be so broken? Was it all in her head? The former? Shame is something people... Continue Reading →

Invisible for good

Mountains or the beach? Well here we go again.. the same set of questions. Favourite food, favourite music, the same shit with a different person. If all goes well, you would probably ask me for a ride. I am wearing my favourite black laced underwear. Not for you, but because I wanted to feel special... Continue Reading →

Holding onto a string of hope

It was just about sunset. She loved to sit in her balcony with her cup of tea, watching the people taking a stroll, kids playing, the vegetable man selling on a cart.

The Incessant Rant [Vol. 1]

I happened to be watching a Netflix psychological thriller the other night and found a character I could relate with who happened to say these lines to which I majorly resonated to. The key to happiness is Active Denial. They would be lying if they said they had no regrets. That they were not hurting... Continue Reading →

The midnight song!

There is no need to deck up, As there is no one to show. Remorse is constant, And, I feel terribly low. With no longer the urge to impress, I lay down all day - Music is my final distress! 🎼-Oishwaria

The unwithered smile.

On a sunny afternoon, I accompanied my sister for her performance at Nandan for Rabindranath Tagore's birthday celebrations. Nandan has always been a super favorite place for me as it is the hub of different forms of cultural exhibits. I was basically accompanying my sister to capture a video of her performance. I secured the... Continue Reading →

Taxi… Yellow taxi 🚖

Lost in her own city of Joy!

Its been four years in the city already. I feel tired and very mentally exhausted. Everything around me feels the same. Mundane and tasteless. I feel entrapped within myself. My own body has started to wear out on me. I look atleast five years older than my age. It’s true what people say, a smile... Continue Reading →

Once upon a soulmate

It was a short-lived time. We spent days together inseparable. Anything that happened had to be immediately pinged to each other. Work, cribbing about the sales target, or how much I hate my colleagues. He even knew about Milons - the chai-tapri I usually called him as a ritual before getting in or out of... Continue Reading →

At the stroke of midnight…

You hold the glass upside-down and try to lick off the last of whatever spirit it is that you are drinking. Your head is heavy, the music around you is fading. Almost like you're brain is shutting down. But not so fast. The party has just started. There's almost about 30 other people with you... Continue Reading →
