Incredibly exploring the world within my mind, through thought provoking focus. I am fierce and love to pen down reality. I Am Namrada, pulsing through the penned down words!

Purgatory

Unholy

By Namrata Dev in Poetry | Reads: 66 | Likes: 0

Thighs bleeding with the so called impurity everytime I'm shunned out of my own kitchen to not stench up the holy place of God, hanging my head in shame with every drop of blood, on the maroon bedsheet, that cannot go in the machine, hiding the polythene bag with my dirty identity, behind my back, f  Read More...

And long after I'm gone when you clean out the closet to rid my memories like you rid my ashes  in the bluest of the oceans, to begin falling in love with a new memory, a nice woman, you will find these pages of handwritten poetry each word screaming your name, each verse reminding you of every  Read More...

Rusted Memories

By Namrata Dev in General Literary | Reads: 68 | Likes: 0

The room is enclosed with amethyst walls and matching curtains, an old drum kit rusting in one corner, a mahogany table with sticky notes covering most of its right side, an easy chair with clean and dirty clothes shoved in every possible angle, an unmade bed with the comforter flowing on the floor   Read More...

Dear Stranger, Nice isn't it? It costed me 4000 bucks. I had to cut out two months of Swiggy and Pizza Hut to buy this.
