HANGED TILL DEATH! – Guest Post by Maya Fareed

When she raised the question, She was kept in persecution, Demeaned for her proposition, Tampered for her retaliation. What is that I propose? Is it very difficult to suppose? It’s really not big request, Only asking to solve the mystery of this quest. It is still not adequate? Fruition of every predominate, Constant fear of…

SHIFTS OF TIME – Guest Post by Celeste Clementine

But what do you do when All your hope which was then a thread Lassoes around your neck? The only gold dies with the extinguishing flames. When all the memories woven together Drape the remains of whom you had to surrender? I watch it burning brilliant Only to witness it turn to grey. I guess…

LIFE IN 2020: A COVID-19 POEM

Routines are rioting. Feelings are fighting. Beautiful vast world to explore. And now we are hiding. May we never again take things for granted, Perhaps, social distancing is a reality check we wanted. When we feel too worried by this break, May we remember all those lives at stake. Those who have the luxury of…

Climate Change – Save Mother Earth

While I write, I wander through a beautiful word orchard, Hoping to pick the right flowers. While I write, I witness the words blossom & perish, Only to revive & recarnate in new forms. While I write, I notice the climate wreck havoc into the world, Somewhere freezing & somewhere burning. And, while I write…….

Your eyes……I remember

  The days, we sat side by side, I remember your eyes beckoning me to hold you. The days, we shared a hearty laugh, I remember your eyes conveying to me the closeness of the two. The days, our arms were wrapped around each other, I remember your eyes showing the intimacy of our bond….

I’ll go on with my life, my love

The worst has already passed

When you feel so lonely and can’t sleep at night, because everything gives you a fright. The pain and the sadness takes control, and once again you’re all alone. I love darkness, I am afraid of the light, the only light I love staring at, is the moonlight. I devote myself to acting happy, but…

Beasts that we call human

Like an apple that has fallen from the tree, her soul was rotting. Rotting…Deep in the emotions of the misery, the feelings that never seemed to be setting her free. You could say others have had it worse than her, but until you take a few steps in the worn out path of her misery,…

That’s all I see…..Darkness…..

Like a plague that never goes away, Or a wild animal and its prey, It waits… And waits…. And waits…….. Until you’re ready, Then closes in and devours you… From the inside out. All you see is shadows of the ones you once knew, Happiness no more, Laughter no more, No more love, Like a…

Glimpses of Benevolence

I glanced upon a picture in the newspaper today… a Christian missionary providing water to a Muslim village suffering from water scarcity, ,sharing a plain smile, hand reaching out – and I thought to myself, how gracious. Then..the clouds parted just enough for sunlight to shine down on me , touching my heart & a…
