Today I bleed, again.

Today I bleed, again.

​I know I've been hurt before. Running after ma, as a toddler, and bruising my knees against the solid ground. Or fighting dada over the smallest things, but he showed he cares when my tooth fell off. It didn't always hurt to bleed, though. Like when I donated blood on turning 18! I still have the yellow smiley brooch they gave me. Numerous times I've cut my poor finger. I had a tough time to learn cooking, Daddy's princess turned a queen, you see. The best of all? It was when I bled to give birth. It seemed like aeons lying on the table, pushing harder by the minute. But oh, her little cry still rings in my mind like a sweet jingle. Every time it was worth the pain. What about now, you wonder? Now when I bleed, it isn't blood that transpires. It's my emotions. Emblazoned in bold on my wrinkled skin. They shine at the brightest now, after being concealed for so many years. They are forgiving, I must say, for I've let them out for my own selfish...

A mother’s lullaby.

A mother’s lullaby.

You've been the greatest gift of mine, Held you close to me for months nine. Your skin is so soft it makes me tickle, I'll take such care, nothing would cause you prickle. In daytime you play around with your dad, At night you cry but, I promise, I won't ever be mad. The first time when I saw your sweetest smile, I knew, to make you happy, I'd even walk a mile. You're my morning sunshine, sugar, You're my apple pie. And I vow, I'll love you till the day I die. ©The Honest Fabler ©Cover credits- Google Images...

Unsaid goodbyes.

Unsaid goodbyes.

As a person who's fond of pets(fishes, in my case), losing even one seems saddening enough. I've took care of fishes since last 4 years. Currently I have 4 gold fishes(two of which are 3 years old and the other two a couple of years old.) and 2 freshwater sharks(both 3 years old.). Prior to this I've had the good fate of taking care of many other fishes but these are the ones who've stayed. The most recent ones are Herbie and Azure, both are Betta fishes. They've been closest to me since they were a birthday gift from a person very close to me. But last night when I returned home I realized, Azure has stepped in the afterlife. I hope his soul finds a solace and rests in peace. You arrived on the day I turned old. In the bright sunlight you gleamed so bold, I adored you every morning as if you were gold. The wings you had were...

The voice is closer, Lonzo sounds breathless. Aaron knows for sure he's running from something. Audra on the other hand is accompanying him with no idea of what's happening. "Aren't we running into trouble?" She asks, but Aaron doesn't hear or at least pretends to. Aaron's mind is occupied by the screams. He's trying to figure out the direction of their origin. Straight. I've to go straight. A distracted mind is all a bad opportunity calls in for. Aaron smashes against a...

One for the 67 years of Republic India.

❛❛India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, & the great-grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most constructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only.❜❜ -Mark Twain Have you ever been to the richest land on earth in terms of religion, culture, historically significant places, amazing food and home to some of the greatest inventors? If you haven't, then you're missing one wild adventure in your travel journal! Or maybe you're as lucky as me to reside here. And if that's the case then you probably know how vast our cultural roots go and how majestic our mother nature's creation on this land is. The sacred river of our country— Holy Ganges that flows from Himalayas and its tributaries where believers go in order to purge their sins and achieve Moksha(liberation from circle of life and death)—is a lifeline to people residing at its banks. The Himalayan range makes a crown on our heads. The...

Jack & Jill(Sensual)

Jack & Jill(Sensual)

When the journey started I wasn't sober, but I still reminisce everything over & over. [¹] I met ten step-brothers, Each wore a bony hat crafted by their mothers. [²] I climbed a tiny hill, Looking around to find my Jill. [³] The smooth bridge that followed wasn't stable, But my Jill awaited me so it had to be worth the trouble. [⁴] As I continued the ground turned wet, "Softer & warmer is my Jill, I bet." [⁵]  Next was a desert with a single well, With my every move it vibrated like a bell. [⁶] Now, I could see the two domes of a temple. My destination was close & I witnessed the hurdles crumple. [⁷] The final slender wall was high, Stopping wasn't an option cause I had no time to cry. [⁸] When my lips met hers, she knew I'm back. Never going to leave her, cause I'm her Jack. Anatomical Metaphors: The first stanza- Refers to the ten toes of the lover. The second stanza- Refers to the medial malleolus.(Ankle for non-biology speakers, like me.👻) The third stanza- Refers to the lower...

What if this were a poem?

What if this were a poem?

What if I were a bird? I'd wander free from the earth's pull. Even rest on the back of a bull. What if I were a bull? I'd graze all day on the fresh grass, But give the warrior ants a way to pass. What if I were an ant? I'd live in peaceful colonies of my kin, Feeding on the marvellous deer's dead skin. What if I were a deer? Beautiful- is what I would be called. I'd be so quick that a lion chasing me would turn bald. What if I were a lion? The king of the jungle and ruler of all. I'd be so powerful that the elephant's might would fall. What if I were an elephant? The biggest and toughest is what I'd be, A man would pay to even get a glimpse of me. But oh, I'm only a poet. One who searches for a muse even when quiet. My imagination is what makes me high. Wings aren't something I need to fly. Hold my hand and step on board, We'll be anything our mind wants to...

Aaron‘s mind is restless. Each little sound is a sign of the undead. Waiting for him to sleep, to drag him under. In the middle of the earth where the demon, Strigoi- as Ioan said, live. Their realm. But why me? After an hour of restless tossing & turning it’s the first time a right question has come to his mind. Why would any Strigoi want to hurt him? Who is he anyway, just another 16 year old betwixt the...
