"Not even travelled through a plane you say?" "Sir no, sir." "This is gonna be fun." Then Kane turned his back & everyone laughed.  ** 'That's where it started?' She asks me. The noise of her pen running against the paper is audible even when she's across the room, sitting in front of me. There's a scar on her index finger, probably a burn. By the look of it, one can wager it is old- Yes, a good decade or so. 'Are you with me, Mr. Heinz?' The name makes me recoil. 'Call me Diablo, please. I hate those 5 letters together. H-E-I-N-Z!' It's rude! No, I should apologize. 'Sorry.' I whisper & chew on the dead skin near my nail. 'It's okay, Diablo. Let this be. I'm bored, you want to play?' She points her gaze towards...

To her, with love.

To her, with love.

How I wonder you were a stranger once, Just another pretty face amidst the rush. But then you became my rumination, To defend me from the demons in my mind. You turned into an ally, And stepped in my fight against the world. Who knew an imagination of sorts could be my macrocosm. Who knew you'd ever be real, real enough that I'd make you my muse. Your soul is mine and mine is yours, The body never matters cause you're my thought.  ©The Honest Fabler ©Cover credits- Google Images...

Purging the past.

Purging the past.

'Come on, Hugo! Can't you swim faster?' I scream over the resting waves splashing on my face. 'I've had supper—an hour ago, Allaire.' He manages to speak spilling water out of his mouth. 'We're almost there.' I state & continue swimming. A little lackadaisically, though, as it has turned quite dark since we've reached within the mountain's shadow. Finally getting out of the river, he collapses on a rock covered with weeds. I still can't believe this is happening for real. 'Are you okay?' I kneel next to his shivering body and start rubbing his palms. 'I'm glad you told me that we're going to leave our boat on its own before jumping off in the water. Oh wait, you didn't tell me, did you?' I laugh and take his sarcasm as a sign of being normal. 'Up on your feet, my love.' Dusting off the weeds from his jeans he stands and looks around. Finally, someone other than me has seen it. My wonderland.  'What is this...

The beggared billionaire.

The beggared billionaire.

"I want that balloon, pappy." I hear her clamorous voice across the garden. I've heard it somewhere before. She's pulling a man, with slothlike pace and an arched back, behind her. With a ragged smile he buys the balloon and gives it to her, bending with great efforts. "Old man." I snigger. Resuming on my way, I glance at my reflection on a car window. Ironically, my face looks much older than her Grandpa. Atleast he has his grandchild. I give a sad nod & sit on the edge of a bench obscured from the bright sunlight due to the untrimmed bushes. My daily spot to spend time with myself. I wasn't always so alone. Even I had a family- family, even the word makes me ache. Let's focus on the brighter part of my life, shall we? I brought up my father's business, turned it into an empire. An empire the world would remember for ages, but will I? I've never had much...

A farewell to 2016.

A farewell to 2016.

Dear Santa, Surprised I'm writing to you, now? After not writing to you last year, like everytime? To be honest, last Christmas my brother told me that you're a figment of imagination, created to make children like me happier. I don't feel bad for the lies honestly, nothing's your fault. But I do have a list of complaints against you. Last year was too much to take in. Overwhelmed with sadness, hurt and a little pinch of happiness! I hate you for taking away the people who I admired and all the dark days whole world witnessed. But I'm grateful, too, cause these events brought the whole world together. It united the farthest corners of the world and gave a common cause to each of us. To value our fellow humans. David Bowie's 'Lazarus' was the first song my brother made me listen to and I instantly fell in love with it. He passed away only after 2 days of his 69th birthday. It...

Ensorcelled by juvenility.

Ensorcelled by juvenility.

I remember the time, The time when I didn't even know what is a rhyme. I cartwheeled in the widespread field, Oblivious to my wounds that were still unhealed. Singing out of tune with birds creating a melody, Who knew then the song will only be a memory. Tying a rope to the branch I made my toy, Warm breeze against my skin made me a happy boy. Pamper me is all what she did, my mamma. From one couch to the other I jumped to escape lava. Reminiscing my childhood seems such a felony, For I've an exam tomorrow and it's all just a memory.🌸 ...

His Last Siesta.

His Last Siesta.

​Ages later we met again. Weathered by the tides of time, Flavoured with experiences wild. Countless memories reminisced, From the days we stole mangoes To the late bleary party nights! Everyone who we knew became a memory,  But you and I were never part of history. You were the one who eased my life, Especially when I had fought my wife. But oh, my bosom bud,  Parting our ways was a tough call, Forsooth, the toughest that I recall. If I knew this would happen I'd never let you go. Decades of our love now lost in vain, For I wasn't there to wake you from your last siesta....

What is a religion?

What is a religion?

Growing up in a religious family as an atheist has always been queer. But as time passed I learnt how to not offend the views of a person to whom religion & God is a source of lifestyle. In our current time the estimated number of religions is known to be 4,300. Each of them have a different history to our beginning and different set of Gods who govern the universe. Though I'm not someone who believes or follows any religion, I'm always intrigued by them. Think about it, the people who started religions were indeed very smart for their times. Religion was born to teach us life lessons, to literate us as to be capable to act in situations we haven't been in but might face them in later stages of our life.  These scholarly men, who started religions, even laid down rules and regulations for their followers to lead a life. To make sense in simple words, they made their fraternities...

What paradise do you believe in?

What paradise do you believe in?

​The world everywhere was sombre, Still the mystical Paradise stood un-affected. Enclosing within it calmness and protection from all the sins. Bits of his vehemence broke with every step he took. He didn't stop, since he knew his only chance lay ahead of him, the Paradise. He didn't stop struggling through the modern desert, the work mountains and the concrete jungle, hiding as a prey from animus, envy, and malice even from the ones he thought were his allies. He didn't stop, since he knew no one in the grim world was selfless enough to provide a helping hand.  He didn't stop, because he knew his world was driven by madmen. A world blinded by avarice. Aeons later when he reached the gateways of the Paradise, it was too late to enter. Too tiresome to take the final step, but he did make it. The moment he entered the Paradise, the mirage blew away, no evil thought could reach his soul, no broken promise could make his heart ache nor could...
