“I want you to remember me. Will you remember that I existed, and that I stood next to you here like this?” Out of all the fears in the world, this is the biggest fear I’ll ever have. “If I should disappear, will you tell them I was here?“ Memories scare me. Oblivion is scary. … More Today is a memory
If I should fade away, will you speak of my existence? If I should disappear, will you tell them I was here? If I don’t come again, will you miss my presence? If I don’t shed a tear, will you know I still can’t bear? If I won’t write to you, will you … More Oblivion
She would see people around her celebrating their love for a book they had been reading, falling in love with it again and again, since years.

Believe me, I had a hard time believing. The stars stood witness to the fable. They saw words blowing up in the air, … More When Words burst
And we have lost the spark. Can you feel it too? No two smiles flutter together. Have you seen it too? We stand here, beside, yet apart A blanket of void divides us.

I would spend the night with you, In you I’ll find my calm, But In the morning I’ll have to go And leave you in a qualm. I would write for you in the gap of my thighs About the calm of the night, About the storms of mind, About the sham of the … More Virile Valediction
“Was it easier without me?” He asked, “The pain?” She didn’t know what to say. He had left without answers and came expecting no questions. He had gone with the summer, and returned, expecting warm arms in the winter. The day he left, he didn’t turn back, and she knew any amount of query will … More Would it matter, anyway?
