Haunted

You? You’re like a gust of cool wind, that kisses my cheek on a warm, sunny day.  You’re like the birdsong I love waking up to. Like that tune I’ve got stuck in my head, for more than a week now. That won’t go away even after I’ve heard a million more.  You. You’re like … More Haunted

Hooked up with Pain! 

This feels all too familiar. I’ve been through this before. The way you creeped into my heart slowly Tearing down the brick walls around it with your bare hands. Peeling every complex layer that I’d added over the years. Tears stinging the eyes, no one seems to mind. The sound of something being unlocked. My heart … More Hooked up with Pain!

The Other One!

I don’t usually use this word for people, but this one’s an exception. I hate her. There I said it. Why do I hate her? cos she’s so dumb. Yet she thinks she’s so smart. Psuedo-intellectual. That’s what I’d like to call her. I can’t hold a conversation with her before I start mentally making … More The Other One!

BF: do we have to pick between best friend or boyfriend?

I didn’t think there was any truth in the belief that ‘a girl and a guy can never be JUST friends’. We were inseparable. We always had something to talk about. The incessant chatter, the never ending gossip sessions… that zoned out the entire group. Only we understood each other jokes, completed each other’s sentences. … More BF: do we have to pick between best friend or boyfriend?

An ounce of innocence!

It was Sunday. He wanted to cook his favourite Chicken Lonvas (an East Indian preparation). There, in the sweltering heat, he stood shirtless in his favourite nylon shorts, sweat trickling down his huge belly. Crushed garlic turning brown, onions turning translucent. His senses were indulging in the sights and scents of his culinary skills, it … More An ounce of innocence!

Trusting can scar!

School friends turned into college classmates, who shared a bench. The proximity surpassed boundaries. I was hopelessly falling for his charm. I did think he liked someone else though. And he suspected that I liked him too. It was in the way I looked at him. A dead giveaway. He asked her to confirm it … More Trusting can scar!

Trusting can hurt!

He said he loved me. He loved his mother even more, which was expected. His mother couldn’t stand to lose him. She caught us together, one day. And dismissed our teenage romance. He tried telling her how he loved me. How perfect we were. He made one mistake. He lied about my ethnicity. The real … More Trusting can hurt!

Crazy, Love?

I find relief in your crazy mood swings. They reassure me that you’re still thinking of me, even when you don’t want to talk to me. And when you finally break that silence, I know those words have been rehearsed over a million times in your head. And that you couldn’t wait to tell me all the … More Crazy, Love?

Goodbye & Hello

Blood is not thicker than water.  She was not related to us, but she related to everything connected with our lives. She was not a family member, thrust upon us by default. She was someone my dad worked with, and someone we chose to get close to. She was much more than a family friend, … More Goodbye & Hello

“I Love Him Too!”

She’s probably the only one who knows the entire story. She knows how you’ll met, where you’ll met and probably even remembers the date. She must’ve even told you how to handle the first date, and the ones that followed. She knows about your first fight, and hated the fact that he could reduce you to … More “I Love Him Too!”
