My thoughts!

My thoughts!

An urge to hide hurts, In the silence of monument valley! Secret openings had been bricked up within, That’s the ancient pride ever in race. Dissected by the pebbles, the flow gets torn here and there, A puddle of disappointment! between the breakfast and dinner time, mirthless smiles still slithered away, as the pride approached, Few drops of water naked in sunshine, a milky thread falls from the mountain. Breaths die mechanically in a vacuum,

I used to do all this as a matter of habit, without understanding the real purpose. One day, I visited a dear friend of mine who introduced me to the

Fighting Forgiving

Fighting Forgiving

My wife and I fought a lot post a few months in our marriage. We’d have a high decibel match almost every day about something. Argumentatively I’d switch off my emotions. She’d wait for me to do something not to her liking and I’d wait for her to say something that was irrational in my thoughts, and we’d go against each other like the battering ram. Towards the end with no outcome out of it
