The Last Cigarette- A Diary

The Last Cigarette- A Diary

THE LAST CIGARETTE I felt like a bad ass rebel, when I smoked a puff of cigarette for the first time when I was 17. You know how when you are forbidden to do something, you become more eager to dare the consequences and feel adventurous about it, especially when not caught in the act. And talking about adolescence? The spirits of adventures and experiments just seeps through the blood urging you to try all deeds that cause excitement. And in my case, I was lured by a smoking fetish: aroused by the sight of my other colleagues smoking, which kind of turned out to be a social cheat code to get noticed and make new friends. I hesitated smoking at first, apprehensive to digest the reality of creating a bad image of myself and being pertained to my non-smoking family background. But thanks to my asshole friends that I could never resist successfully. I finally decided to take the bull by the...

Unpaid Loan

Unpaid Loan

An unpaid-loan is the most stressful thing in the world. But of course, to those who care to repay. A loan, left unpaid, leaves us with a feeling on uneasiness. A mindset, which constantly forces our attention to the incomplete thing. More or less, it is like a unfulfilled responsibility. Loan is a mere borrow-return agreement. But the care is to be taken that the borrowed commodity is not exploited by you. Perhaps we have forgotten the same. The world we live in is not an ancestral gift, but a loan approved and sanctioned by our future generations. We do not own this, but have borrowed it and are bound to revert it in the good condition that we got it in, if not better than that. It is our responsibility to care for this beautiful gift but not forget it being an unpaid-loan, which we must return. Every single element of it, should be intact and should remain so. We have lost...

Death, take me.

Death, take me.

Ever been in a place where you have nothing to say, but a lot to tell. Where all you feel is empty, but inside, you are on the verge of puking out all the crap that you hold inside. Where your mind screams, "Death, take me." What do you do then? Do you walk and hope that it will go down like the extra fat on your tummy? Or do you run, for it to come off like the sweat?   Ever did you try hiding, where it won't be able to see you? Or perhaps jumping down from the 14th floor?   Do you ever talk it out? Or sing it, like all those sad and depressing songs, which tend to suck out all the energy inside you?   Throw it off, like you throw a pebble in a steady lake, disturbing its peace and then drowning it to death? Or simply standing in a thunderstorm, and let the current burn it down to ashes?   Did you ever let it flow like...

Situation

Situation

With the passing time and so he was realizing that he wasn't made for the thing in which he was falling into. For he wasn’t meant to stay at a single place and spend his whole life in it. He wasn’t meant to stay there forever. It was not his cup of tea. Fascinations were all around him since a long time then. And he had known all the ways he can go with. The options were of no short as well. Everything he had a passion for, was in front of him and yet he was there. Stationary. Unfortunstely he had no other choice but to do what he was forced into. There was pure helplessness that he was feeling. Helpless to pull himself out of the thing he was up with. Sometimes, it is just that you have to do it. For, either it’s the only way and you have no other option. His was the same situation. Passion would serve great and he will be happy, he...

THE BLACK CAPE

THE BLACK CAPE

THE BLACK CAPE   In the past few days... "Told you, I don't know.", Shiraz spat angrily. His face was a mixture of rage and arrogance. He had been called for inquiry several times during the past few days. The police had three main suspects - Shiraz, hooded man, and Charlie. Although, it was unlikely that Charlie would've killed Rick because even after analyzing that hypothetical situation, they couldn't find a reason wherein Charlie would benefit from Rick's death. But they hadn't ruled off Charlie yet. The police had no leads on the man in the black cape. This was the first instance in the peaceful town of Cambridge that someone was murdered. There were a lot of questions raised by the people. The Mayor, Mr. Adler, had handled the situation well by holding a community gathering and addressing the issue there, by assuring the people that the security in the town would be increased. But the media had obviously raised Adler's chances of being...

History of the Future

History of the Future George Orwell has been my favorite author ever since I found a signed copy of 'Down and Out in Paris & London' in a secondhand store. I got it after Christmas with the money mom & dad gifted me, however, Poppy didn't let me read until the spring break. He said he'll be back from the war soon & if he's not back by the spring break, I can read it myself. (more…)...

Love, Rose

Love, Rose

With the heart beating out excitement, as I walk along her side, I realize that our togetherness was destined. After all our compatibility with each other was beyond expression. From being mere classmates to friends to best friends and finally to being at a point of loving each other forever, we had reach. This was our first outing off her city and planning it well was must. Then there we were, in middle of the day. The sun setting over the horizon and we walking hand in hand by the mighty Arabian. The sea always made her happy. Happy beyond limits. She always said that her favourite terrain being the beach. And so the walk by the sea, was on the itinerary of the day. Everything was going as planned, but then life is unpredictable, isn't it? She stopped in between and I turned around to see why. Holding a red rose in her hand, she got on her knee. With both her...

Demented

PART - 1 From: aria.techmanager@shopkart.com To: lishazaman@pmail.com Date: January 2, 2017 at 3:53:34 PM GMT Topic: S.O.S. A million thoughts were running through my head but I couldn't focus on one. The memories that I had cherished the most until now were tarnished by what I had just discovered. Being in my mid-twenties, I have lots of things to achieve and do on my bucket list. This is nowhere close to how I had planned my life to go. My ambitions and dreams had always been my priority so much so that I had never given myself a chance at a committed relationship. Poor Jace, he hasn't given up on me yet. He still feels that we have a chance at something that I don't believe in. I don't know how will he react to this news. Maybe now he'll truly understand why I don't like to get involved with someone. They just create complications. (more…)...
