Daydream


I’m stranded

Walking the thin line between memories and regret. The land I tread upon, frail like a leaf that has dried; caving in, the subsidence is evident.

Every step I take pushes me nearer to death; every flimsy breath fills me with hope, to wander further ahead. The sun has mellowed down, the dunes wallowed with the chilling winds, I know I’m frowned upon.

This curse eats me away, inch by inch, day by day, and hope by hope. oases turn into mirages as stars paint the canvasses; this might be a dream. Have I closed my eyes?

    1. Everything is cursed and isn’t. Depends on how you look at it.

              Acha keep that aside.
              I’ll tell you one thing.

              I am obsessed with your posts.
              The older ones.
              January, December, November and I still am to read a lot of them.
              I am so into them that I forget to hit a like or drop a comment. I just keep shifting from one to another and keep saving them to read again.
              I so love them.
              Nowadays as soon as I find some time I open your blog and start reading..
              In case you see stats booming, know that I am reading you.

            5. I’m surprised someone actually likes my posts and older ones? Astonishing. Older posts aren’t that good, I’m warning you.
              Thank you for giving me your time though.
