She was soaring high, up and above  in the sky.  Just then, the bitter failure, envious of her glitter, of her sparkle and shine, tip-toed in her life.  Stealing away the light, darkness conquered her bright days, breaking her into smithereens and shattering the dreams she had to chase.
The time was no less than a nerve-racking nightmare. Thousands of quandaries flitted through  the labyrinth of her mind.  And the world, unfortunately was blind to see the chaos she had turned into. With misted eyes and heart clad in abysmal despair she had nowhere to go, since the path to victory seemed to disappear.
For people around, she was the talk of the town. Behind their concerns, opinions and help was a hidden taunt.  They laughed and mocked her, they kicked and pushed her, draining every drop of composure, merely left in her.
Confinement embraced her and solitude gifted her the love  of words, which strengthened overtime.  Books and writing became bliss to her. Broken she was, now mended she…


Screaming and squirming, he was born to the couple. Couple, they were for the world. Foes, they were to each other. Every other day, they slipped into a scuffle which sometimes lasted for whole day while the new born slept peacefully, incognizant of his mother's weeping. 
Some years passed and at the age of nine, the child's world was bliss to him with ecstasy all around. But, his parents flummoxed him because there relationship was still a blend of arguments and misunderstandings. While they fought, he just stood there, observing his father berating his mother, who just wailed all night. The reason of their contempt was beyond his understanding. But, a broad smile on his mother's face back in the morning would make him believe that everything was normal. 
The family waded through another ten years. Nothing changed except their ages. Their son touched maturity and understood what he did not as an immature. But, surprisingly, he was not bothered at all. To see his father s…


I smile widely and my eyes gleam,  every time I see you, lying on my shelf.
You will stay with me forever, holding my hand it seems,
Unlike humans.
 Deceitful they are, clever they are.
They come and go,
like a flickering light
breaking hearts and promises once made.
But, I know, you are here to keep up my might.
As I skim through your pages,
I embrace you tightly to never let you go.
You are a pot teeming with words.
Wise and beautiful words
that flow within me and are engraved in my heart.
But, so different are humans from you.
Their words so hideous, so harsh.
Every time my watch points towards painful hours,
you lift me up with exemplary ideas.
My happiness doubles and my sorrows are halved around you.
Through all the vicissitudes of my life,
I find your shadow lingering behind.
But, my failures are success to humans
and my ecstasy, enviable to them.
So different are humans from you, dear books
and that is why, I will keep on loving you
till the end,
my dearest best frie…
