She was strong when he was. She was weak when he was. Locked in a cage by choice, They found their freedom in captivity. Their love began with a metaphor... His killer smile, Her vulnerable drug!
Has innocence lost its meaning at present times? We live in a world where even children are deprived of innocence. As young adults, most want to give the illusion that they are older than they actually are. Doesn’t this thought make one consciously lose a valuable virtue?
Facing the fact, it’s really hard to keep the inner child alive as we grow. But, is it not mostly because we want to look mature in the eyes of society? Let’s try recalling an incident when one of our peers would have behaved with innocence, maybe jump in the stairs or walk like a toddler used to. We’d have certainly heard voices about he/she acting weird, naive, or behaving so to grab attention. Why can’t it be considered simply as an act of joy and enjoyment?Continue reading
❝They say I'm an adamant child. What else would I do? I wish I wasn't born. I know it's too late. I'm 14 now. There's another wish. I've locked it in out of fear, of being labeled a monster. I wish to see "Her" in the coffin. Don't judge.Continue reading

Reluctance to participate
in a fancy dress competition,
not wanting to remove
that favourite dress of yours!
Sing a mad song with wrong lyrics
in the company of neighbours,
which you now wouldn’t
even dare to mutter a line!
Wake up from deep sleep

on hearing that favourite music
playing between ads on TV! Continue reading
It’s a theme park run only for adults, by a lady with supernatural powers, and the caution board indicating “Mind Your Head” doesn’t mean anything physical but is more surreal.
Only brave ones come here because the person entering the door forgets all memories of the outside world that’s dumped in their heads and gets inside only with memories of a 5-year-old.
