The Journey Begins

“Soan, you write well! Write, we’ll get it published.” This used to be Abhay’s statement whenever I read out something new that I’d written. “But what do I write about? There has to be something, I can’t just start writing and what do I write?” used to be my standard reply. “Write a book on…

Blamed of burning, the fire burns too. Fret you, fume you, and fight you. Complain, compare, and clash I do. Hard, harsh and hopeless, but every time i consume, me too.

Her comments were vitriolic, His responses caustic. Between them they shared… great Chemistry!

If only

If only, we could be the opposite poles but not on opposite poles. If only, we could be the opposite charges and not charging at one another. If only, there was a point of intersection and not a point of diversion. If only, we could be different from each other and not indifferent to. A…

The Giving Life?

I bubble and boil and cause turmoil. Thickening hardening as I churn I cause pain, Oh! I burn. Bringing chaos, causing gloom… a sense of only doom. Yes I am this but also that; the one who alone for a fact, is the salve to soothe and calm. Protect, nurture, save from harm. You see…
