Awake

I saw a woman happily walking home, alone, at 12 AM. And then I woke up. The society is a marketplace, everyone is a customer; everyone, is a marketer. We’re so good at branding: any woman who shows up with a guy at a public place is ‘branded’ a slut. I wonder why the guy…

Between

In a world where happiness is frowned upon, not celebrated; where sorrow is celebrated and not taken care of, In the cities ruled by tyrants, tyrants backed by cowards and cowards, fed by the greedy Where rebellion is suppressed, every voice, oppressed and freedom is for sale Those that live die Those who try, live…

Wear

They walked the guttersIn leather bootsThey skinned menTo make more bootsThey polished them in sweatColoured them with bloodSold them to other menTwice the priceHalf the size

Wastage

A tap leaks. The droplets make a puddle and in the middle, form the ripples. The constant leak drains all the water inside. The puddle dried up. There were no ripples anymore. Nobody cares. And yeah, don’t waste water, shut the taps tight.

Tears

Cowards cry in rain, they’re afraid of pain. What is sorrow that’s not felt when tears crawl down your eyes like razors cutting through skin? I’m not afraid; to face, to embrace, to fade. Again. I refuse to comply to their subjective morals, those flawed beliefs and pointless faith with a distorted sense of self…

Sheep

Few sheep had run from the herd, vexed; for the seekers they were. Lost, confused and wandering, each in a different path; when were two thoughts alike? Wolves, they were to the pack, outlaws that reneged. And perish they shall of loneliness and despair, for the herd is all there is.

Of cakes and death.

I ate cake today. I tell my friend that. His face lightens up and lips part, revealing incisors. He’s happy or at least he pretends to be. He thinks I’m happy. I see no point. Someone I know had died. I was quiet just like I was when I ate the cake. I see frown…

Slave.

We graduate, find a job and work for someone who is chasing their dreams. Why the hell are we dreaming of a job? Why can’t we a life instead? Don’t lecture me about young entrepreneurs and how they employ people and pay taxes but tell me this, why are the roads ALWAYS so terrible? Everything…

Let’s talk

Television is dangerous. The other day I was surfing through the channels and a romantic scene was on, two people, passionately kissing each other and the camera zoomed into their lips. I don’t really imagine myself in that guy’s place but say that to my dad giving me awkward stare from across the room. “Dude!…

“The stars shine for us”, we’ve been told, “there’s someone watching over”, and we’re sold. Then we grow up, realise these lies are centuries old. They say there’s an eternal fire burning within, is it the same fire that burns through your soul? Why is it too late by the time we realise hopes are…

!

For every time I said I don’t believe, Let me tell you, there was a time when I had nothing but that. You can only lose what you always had. What you don’t is what you won’t.

Ironies.

Truth when questioned enough becomes a lie; Lie that’s believed turns into the truth. Questions are answered yet No answers are questioned; Freedom is not fundamental, Rights aren’t right when used. I’ve lost belief in faith, There’s no faith in what I believe.

The rule.

If there’s a rule that makes you wanna follow, You better make new ones. (Because what makes you act without thinking isn’t worth acting upon)

Voids.

I thought I had wings and dreamt of flight, only to realise they were hands. Could barely crawl, yet life had me running after people and things. Everything was quiet and it was too late before I found my voice. I searched for myself through the eyes of people and ways of the world; now…

I am.

I am a liar. A liar who seeks truth in a world of marionettes wired to societal archetypes. A masked crusader hiding behind his face, transcending masquerades. I am stubborn. A man vocal about his opinions, standing his ground against stereotypical perspectives and religious conservatism. I am a coward. Agitated by judgemental eyes and voices,…

Angel.

“Enough is enough” said she and ripped off her wings; Walked out the door, her back now bleeding, lighted her cigarette, sipping on whiskey. “I have senses, I feel, I have a voice that speaks, I have eyes that see and a mind that thinks Oh, it’s a lost cause, this divinity, So screw you…

Ahem!

The cracked open lips that bleed tell you no tales of the coldness that dried them up. The dirt in my nails decorate fingers with the untidiness of life. Why do you bother yourself with how tasteless I am with the clothes I wear? Don’t they speak for themselves? The shoes don’t match, man, the…

Shower thoughts

We live in a complicated world. We’re taught the wrong subjects, we get the wrong answers and we learn the wrong lesson. society is an institution that creates an illusion of unity by dividing people. “It’s a free world” they say, yet govern you by laws, restrictions and sanctions. Have you looked outside your window?…

Lies.

“Whatever I did, I did, for you.” She told him. “Whatever I did, I did, for him.” She told them “Whatever they did, they did, for themselves.” they whispered. “I hate them all” he said to himself.

It’s a joke.

The world is an arena.; society is a circus. Your time is money, your interest, an investment. Please be seated according the social classes mentioned on your tickets and buckle up. I’m gonna tell you a joke, it’s called life. Who am I? I’m the fucking comedian.

Lifeless.

Her eyes rained tears; As her dreams bled to death.

Issues.

The bag flew right into the tubelight spawning sparks as the glass frame shattered all over. There were students trying to bring the black board down and partially succeeded as it was too heavy and tightly fixed. Within seconds, all of the lights were broken and shattered, fans had their wings bent towards the ceiling,…
