The City

Did you know this city didn't sleep tonight? It watched through the darkness which enveloped the night sky, The empty terrains waiting for a lover to pass by. It peeped through the ruffles that slip from the window Every time an engine stops near the road. It blinked with the light that impatiently waits for... Continue Reading →

I don’t like Smiling Faces

I don't like smiling faces What I mean is I don't like faces that smile all the time.   They put the obvious under a veil shielding away the demands of their body; they turn a close eye to the fact of the time.   The stretch of their muscles give away a suppressed sigh,... Continue Reading →

The City at Dawn

I could feel myself burning, as if lying on a lake of fire. I could feel sweat gushing down my forehead, I could sense a lump in my throat. I tossed and turned to make myself comfortable, the mattress shrieked, making an irksome noise. It was impossible to sleep under such circumstances, the room made... Continue Reading →
