Family [Short Story (2/2)]

I was left in this skepticism and then suddenly I became conscious of the environment surrounding my wife and it seemed more like a hospital and thats when reality struck me and I noticed the worry filled within my wife’s eyes.

The moment she saw me open my eyes, all the worry from her eyes disappears into an inevitable joy. She says my name and embraces me into a hug. I try hugging her back and asking her what happened and why I am in a hospital but even though the words are just on the tip of my tongue, the immense pain that I feel in my head doesn’t let me do anything.

Family [Short Story (1/2)]

I stand at the entrance of this lonely house as the sinister silence haunts my soul. I see my children laughing, playing and running towards me but they disappear the moment I try to come close to them and stop them from falling. My heart starts pounding loudly and my eyes get filled with worry as I search the house, and turn it upside down, but my children are nowhere to be seen. I hear the sound of my wife calling me out from the backyard and I run to look for her, but when I reach the backyard there is not a soul to be seen. “This can’t be happening. First my children and now my wife too?” I think to myself. I can’t do this anymore, I just can’t. I just hate myself for not being there for them when they needed me and now, it’s just too late… they are all gone. Continue reading

Eternal Darkness

The anger and hatred never ended,
the envy grew stronger.
One knew no sorrow,
and the other knew no joy.

The elder one’s life was like the sun,
radiating brightness and warmth to all those around him.
Whereas, the younger one’s life was like the moon,
spreading darkness and creating an aura of loneliness.

But the younger one didn’t realize his importance,
he didn’t know that the elder one always reflected his light.
No matter how hard he tried to shine bright and show the world his beauty
He failed, for the world was blind or so she thought. Continue reading

Just Another Girl

Love is a joke, it is a game
A game I’ve lost over and over again.

I was afraid,
to love you and to ever trust you.
I was afraid,
thinking that you would dissemble me just like the rest.

But, I fell in love with you
thought that our love was sempiternal.

I was a fool,
to think you were the one.
I was a fool,
because you were just like the rest.

All I would do, was sit and brood
wondering what went wrong.

Wings

If I had wings,
I would fly.
I would smile,
at the beauty this world holds.

If I had wings,
I would raise high above people’s expectations.
I would soar higher and higher,
every passing minute.

If I had wings,
I wouldn’t be afraid.
To express my joy,
or to express my sadness. Continue reading

For You…

For you, I will be the sun
shining bright and protecting you from the cold.

For you, I will be the stars
illuminating through the darkness and guiding you back home.

All you have to do is give me all your love.
For that’s all I’ve ever wanted.

For you, I will be the best
unlike the rest.

For you, I will give my heart
without falling apart. Continue reading

Photograph

It captures away the moments,
which were not too good not too bad.
It captures away the heart of the seeker,
who was not too young not too old.

Memories that flash in your eyes,
feelings that awaken which were once suppressed.
All come together, to witness it again.

A photograph which holds
the joy and the sadness of the youth,
A photograph which holds
the foolishness and the formality of the old. Continue reading

Strangers

They had different destinations.

He wanted to soar high above people’s expectations

She wanted to run away, and go back to the place that yearned for her.

They had their differences,

but they never let that come between them.

They didn’t talk everyday,

and rarely got to meet each other.

They had a label on them,

that kept them apart even when they wanted to be together.

Those days passed and turned to months,

the distance between them grew stronger

tearing them apart,

because he never tried and she gave up trying. Continue reading
