The Common Sense of Eid
Published on 08-25-2017 09:19 PM
MARIA If I could cast a spell that would turn my best friend, Zachary, into any other species on earth, I would make him into a piranha. He ate like one. He could gobble up food meant for three – in three minutes – and then demanded for more. He had told me with his usual self-deprecatin  Read More...

here's how it happens.
Published on 08-24-2017 08:24 PM
It starts with something in the air. There is no chill, but you feel it in your bones. At first you go about your life, shrugging off that naggy feeling as one of those days. Then the screaming starts, first they are sporadic, you barely even notice. But it gets more urgent and you realize that some  Read More...

Mr. Fabulous
Published on 09-02-2017 04:48 PM
Do you know why morning comes? It is because the sun rises to see me. Duh. I am perfect. I'm smart, athletic, and most importantly handsome (swings hair). Well, I do have terrible eyesight and am awfully dense... Fine, I might not be perfect, but I can assure you I am 100% fabulous.  Feast your  Read More...

12th bead round the neck
Published on 09-03-2017 02:55 PM
The day was cold. The woman in her eighties inched towards the only window in the room. Shivered in the frigid dawn, she breathed the suffocating stale air which she had enough of. She took a glance through the window - judging from the growing flock of clouds, the snowfall would only be heavier. &l  Read More...

Chai.

I hate chai. Chai is an Indian staple beverage. It is tea leaves boiled in water then sugar and milk is added to the dark brown liquid and stirred vigorously in small glasses fit for a child. An average chai drinker in India would consume at least ten glasses of chai every day, night and during all   Read More...

The Agent of the Devil
Published on 09-08-2017 11:58 PM
Normally if I were to plan a murder I would not consider this night. Especially when the demonic auras are dancing wildly. Just staring at it caused my brain to melt like ice. Surely the date could be changed? Maybe tomorrow or next week? But, of course, it has to be today. The beauty of the night w  Read More...

Imagination

Don't be surprised when your mind comes to life. I blinked and winced at the sudden increase in brightness. The morning had arrived and it was time to get out of bed. I looked around, my eyes darting from one corner of the room to the other. Something was missing. I called out for it only to br re  Read More...

Cry
Published on 09-12-2017 10:03 PM
I cry easily these days. I shed tears while I watched a cat nursing its young, dabbing the tears away as they fall more when she licked her kitten with tender care. I cried seeing an old couple walk with their hands linked, holding each other for support.  Tears flowed freely down my cheeks w  Read More...

Please, I beg you. Just leave me alone. That’s all I ask. The streets in this bustling city are crowded with motorbikes, a lot more than where I come from. At the moment, I have other more pressing issues to worry about. Living in fear day by day, for one. How did I end up here? Like everyone  Read More...

People were still sleeping soundly in their cosy bed and roaming around in dr  Read More...

I would do anything to be with you, right now, so I could hold your hands, look at your face, listen to your voice. Just the thought of your laughter gave me the courage and I walked to the window.
