Late night thought ( 30/11/2019)

My mother is in the hospital. There’s nothing I can do but be next to her. Humans are so fragile! Within a few hours the life as we knew ended. Now it’s just sleepless nights, endless worries and food to survive. For the first few days I didn’t feel much. I was just numb or…

Story 1 (Part-14)

Kate was getting frustrated. She couldn’t help but imagine all the things that could go wrong. She wondered if Ron was okay, if he was even alive. Even though Ron told her to take the car and run away, she couldn’t. With a good view of the entrance she parked the car. Now she was…

When you see your crush

How can you not blush? When you see your crush. And your heart sways a little Like the flower bottlebrush Tell your heart-Hush. So your heart cuss. But slowly, It stays, Hush

Love and hate

I love you. I’ve always loved you. I know you love me. You’ll always love me. But I hate you. Maybe I’ll keep hating you. Maybe I’ll hurt you, And you’ll never know why. Maybe you’ll never understand why. Let me tell you this, What the problem is, Is that you are selfish. Oh how…

Leuenbergeria bleo Leuenbergeria bleo, formerly Pereskia bleo, is a leafy cactus, native to the shady, moist forests of Central America, that grows to a woody, prickly shrub about 2 m tall with large, orange flowers resembling rose blossoms- says Wikipedia. Guess that’s why it’s called rose cactus. I started it from a 6/7 inch cutting…

Trapped

I am slipping. That’s the perfect way to summarise what I’ve been going through. Everyday I stand up and try to walk but I slip and fall instead. I fall face first into the deep dark pit I’ve been In the last years. How many years I’m not sure. Because for the longest time I…

Catharanthus roseus It went through some neglect because of the construction work that was going on in our roof. But it’s thriving since being placed on the roof. She’s full of pink blooms. The white one is also blooming but not as vigorously as the pink one. New seedlings are popping up everywhere. So many…

Late night thoughts (2019)

Like every year, I made a few plans for this year too. And like every year I was unable to finish them. I don’t make unrealistic goals anymore but make realistic goals that I can actually accomplish. Still I fall behind and then eventually give up. This year I made two main goals. 1. I…

Me and you

No matter how much I love you If you hurt me Whether I realise it or not I’ll hurt you Over and over again Until my hearts content. I’ll grab your heart And squeeze it hard. I’ll cause you pain Again and again. Even if I’m willing to die for you, If you hurt me…

You

You were standing next to me. I remember. Don’t know how it came to be, But now you’re facing me, As if I am your enemy. Someone to hunt, Someone to hurt, Only cause you’re hurt. Because you don’t know what to do. You can’t control what’s happening , So you hit the one, Right…

Moving on (or not)

The people we love Lives in our heart. They’re like a piece of us We cannot live apart. But to survive We stay alive Though far far away They stay now a day. It feels like being ripped apart Feels like a piece taken. Being away hurts too much Will forever remain broken. They say…

Life that I lead

What do I have in life other than tea, coffee and kids And basic human needs. The life I lead everyday In every single way Isn’t mine at all. Just hitting my head against a wall. Instead of staying alive, Looking for a way to just survive. Is this living my life? I question sometimes…

Things we do for our kids

We push our kids into adulthood without telling them what it is. We let them walk into the darkness Without any light to guide their way. Sometimes they learn to light a fire. Then they can guide themselves. But sometimes trying to do so they set themselves in fire and burn to death. Still we…

Six on Saturday: Hibiscus, jasmine, clematis and others

Hibiscus This hibiscus cutting was gifted to my father by a Facebook plant group where people loves to share their plants with each other. Don’t know what the flower looks like. Can’t wait to find out. I don’t have much experience with hibiscus. So I just cut the base of the cutting in an angle….

Getting stronger, Unique you are, The only one, There are none – Like you. Each year Getting older Bolder Climbing higher Reaching further Running after your…

Buried things

Sometimes getting stabbed in the heart doesn’t hurt. Sometimes insignificant things, Little, simple, unimportant things Hurt like someone’s stabbing in your heart. The things we bury, Thinking we’ve moved on Surrounds us like a bubble Follows us like a shadow. And after a long time, In a place far far away, It rains on us…

Story 1 (part-13)

Ron was struggling to breathe. The guy was chocking him from behind. Sometimes letting go is easier than fighting back. But now he wasn’t fighting for himself. He was fighting for her. With his blurry vision he looked around trying to find a way out. He could see a raised platform nearby, abandoned after the…

Story-1 (part-12)

“Put the gun down.” He said, “you know you can’t use that. Lets face it, your out of options here. Well, you got one option.” He looked Ron dead in the eye and howled, “Do as I say.” Ron looked at Kate, helplessly sitting on the floor. Tears streaming down her cheeks, shaking her head…

Story-1 (part-11)

Ron lifted the gun and pointed it at his head. He seemed very calm considering the situation. Maybe because he knew he had the upper hand. He was a good looking guy. Like a neighbour next door. Clean and simple, looked nothing like a serial killer. Maybe that’s why nobody suspected him. Even now no…

Story-1(part-10)

Ron’s fingers were running through the keyboard. Line after line of gibberish was appearing in the black monitor. Although it’s gibberish to most people, but not to Ron. He knew exactly what he was doing. He also knew how illegal it was. But desperate times call for desperate measures. And he was desperate. Time was…

Story-1 (part-9)

Ron opened the door and walked out of the room. The officer in charge just stared at him without saying a word . “My god! Your hands are bleeding!” Said the young lieutenant. “That’s not his blood.” Said the officer in charge before Ron could reply. Ron gave her a piece of paper with something…

Depression, suicide and hope.

I’ve been in depression for a long time. It’s not like just feeling sadness or being upset sometimes or all the time. It’s more like a dark cloud above me, following, always. As if there’s a wall dividing me. Living a half life. Never being able to be truly happy. I can show that I…

Story-1 (part-8)

“He escaped? What do you mean.” Ron was furious. “He broke out last night.” The guy said. “And you’re telling us this now? You’re supposed to inform us right away.” “We didn’t think it would be an issue.I mean how far could he have gone on foot?” “ That’s the problem. You didn’t think.” Ron…
