Enough

Just like that, you walked into my life without a knock. I tried with every bone in this body, to fight the urge of what could break me. Yet, every time I see you, I fall deeper and deeper. Tell me, how can I make you stay and love me a little bit more? I’ve…

My first few weeks in China

  At the beginning of December, I decided to move to China. I had never been to China before and the first time I was seeing China was the day I moved here. Yup, crazy or brave? You tell me! There are many reasons why I moved to China, but that’s for another day and…

Trip to Attock

Since  graduating this July, I have been meaning to go visit my grandfather and few relatives who live in Attock, Pakistan. The last time I went there was in 2011, so one can imagine I had not seen my grandfather for that long. It is in fact the longest time that I had gone without visiting…

Colour

For some people, the idea of the “American dream”, a big house, the latest car and a decent job, never has been an interest. Some people want to taste the history, hear the beautiful surroundings, get lost in the crowds, the colour, travel dust, lost in translation, lost cities, the ancient sites. Some people are…

Identity

  With all the friends in the world Our nearest and dearest Yet, does anyone truly know us at all? Do we even know who or what we are?    

Rain

When the pitter patter comes calling Uncover from your shelter Let the melody chime against your flesh Feel it in your bones And cleanse your soul.

Will you remember

Summers glory Almost at it’s end. The skies are grey and gloomy And you are set to sail. I wonder if you will ever mail? We stayed up till the AMs Sharing our heartbreaks, And all that we fear, Our dreams and aspirations. Will you remember? We smiled, giggled and laughed Till our bellies ached,…

For I am a fool To feel this burning desire  The heart dancing to its own beat Telling myself to yearn no more  For I am a fool I see you in my minds eye  I wonder of all that could have been  Knowing that it never will be  For I am a fool  To…

Pluviophile

Sitting on your windowsill Watching the raindrops Holding a hot cuppa still Drizzle drizzle nonstop.   Listen to the rain Hitting on your window Blurring out the rush The world suddenly seems so calm No hustle, just hush.   Going into a trance Absorbed by mother nature The sprinkling rain dance The sensory, Petrichor. Wet…

I took a picture of you with my eyes

I took a picture of you with my eyes   For when I wander in lost thoughts   You will be there   To fill the silence in this soul     A.R

Era

This is the era of situationships let me rephrase that for you, it is a pseudo-relationship A placebo masking itself as a formative relation. You’ve got to be careful or you may end on a journey of guilt trip because showing feelings is a sign of weakness being macho and cool and down with it…
