The lie that changed their lives

The lie that changed their lives

Their relationship

had already broken up

the day he had lied.

 

While he did try to

apologize, she didn’t budge

one bit as “Actions speak louder than words”.

 

She just continued

staying on for the sake of

her family.

Survival of the fittest

Survival of the fittest

‘But man is not made for defeat,’ he said. ‘A man can be destroyed but not defeated.’
– The Old Man and the Sea (1952) by Ernest Hemingway

A struggle to live

amidst the horror of death

without oxygen

 

A struggle to live

amidst loss of livelihood

and hopelessness

 

But also a chance

to readapt and rethink our

way of life ahead

 

But also a chance

for survival of the fittest

in more ways than one

First day of summer

First day of summer

It had been a long hard winter with coronavirus wreaking havoc day after day. It was heartbreaking to see people struggling for their lives as the medical community began to buckle under the constant stream of patients. The dark clouds of uncertainty hung over everyone’s life.

But the vaccinations provided a silver lining amidst these dark clouds. And as the first day of summer began, these vaccinations were speeding ahead and began to show that there was light at the end of the tunnel. As the sun shone bright, the brightness in people’s lives also began to take shape.

the beautiful sky

Journey of life

Journey of life

The train chugged along

identical tracks, but the

surroundings kept changing

 

The journey of life

and death is the same for all

but people encountered are different

The day she was waiting for..

The day she was waiting for..

She was waiting for

this day but now that it was

here, she got nervous

 

This wedding was what

she had always wanted and

her parents agreed

 

Though it went well,

she became teary eyed leaving home

and had to avoid smudging her makeup

Left at the altar

Left at the altar

We loved each other

to the moon and back but you

left me at the altar

 

We promised to be

by each other’s side but you

left me at the altar

 

We had some lovely

times together but you

left me at the altar

 

What started as joy

turned into depression as you

left me at the altar

Story of a Dragon Fruit

Story of a Dragon Fruit

Flashy and rigid

on the outside, soft and calm

on the insides

 

As I cut it, I

visualize the power and

strength it symbolizes

Curiosity

Curiosity

As they lay watching

the stars, they felt pure bliss not

having to stress out

 

But in the dead of

night, a shape-shifter had

other plans up its sleeve

 

While they got curious,

it went berserk posing a danger

to anything in its path
