Minutes of midnight.


I should’ve closed the window. The calendar slaps itself against the wall making too much noise; I check my phone for the clock. When was the last time I looked for date? It’s not that there’s always something important but when was it?

I walk to the calendar and try to guess what day it is. No idea. My phone lay in the bed; not walking back to it. Why does it matter anyway? Expecting too much from life. I’m a fool perhaps. Days and nights are like blips to me now. Everything happens within the blink of an eye and I keep blinking. The more I wait, the slower time moves.

Monotony seems to be the essence of life. I feel like I can predict the future. Like I know exactly what will happen 24 hours from now. Life has become more of a chore.

I wish I could go back to sleep. Fuck this.

    I too don’t like the monotony and predictability. I try to change things a little.

  4. Sometimes you leave me speechless.
    Look at the sentences here
    “Calendar slaps itself against the wall
    Monotony as essence
    I keep blinking”

    You have your own way to present your thoughts and they aren’t monotonous. Everyday you come up with something different and it becomes a new masterpiece.

    Well done Bharath!

      1. I love those extra I’s in my name, shows your excitement.
        Flattery wasn’t the thing.
        I honestly enjoyed it.

        You know Bharath I could actually visualise calendar slapping wall and you blinking or looking at your watch.
        It’s actually a deal to make readers visualise your thoughts.
        I am impressed haa!
