The Doctor

Life is weird! Or am I? The creepiest things happen to me, that’s why! I have tinnitus. Who am I kidding by using a jargon? In simple words, it’s a continuous maddening ringing in ear or ears. Weird, right? It’s rather distressing. I’ve had it for a long time now and at this point in…

Perturbed

The exhausting search for your soul, to fill my void   Every so often, I find a stranger and I sense; the same somber vibes, the related melancholic air, Oh it surrounds me!   My futile attempts to cling to the aura; But, The stranger abhors me! I’m to him; As, You were to me,…

Justice after Death?

This is so depressing. It’s given me a lot of pain and anxiety. This post is about a little girl named Zainab who got abducted last week in Pakistan. She was raped several times and then strangled to death. I just can’t understand how can someone be so brutal. These low lives don’t deserve to…

And regrettably, the statement holds true for other stuff too, for instance, if I really wanna cut some ties instead of calories, that would plainly be toxic for…

Clinging

Oh dearest! How will thou ever fathom?   My eternal love for you; Has traversed all the peripheries,   Ah you’ve gone; Afar, Leaving behind, My forsaken words!   I’m crushed my love, The scar won’t heal You’d never leave…   © 2017 Soiba Tahir Image: Pinterest                …

Yap yap yap

I don’t know what to write, My words have suddenly died! Seconds, minutes and hours of thinking, I tiredly end up unblinking! My sweet Lord! Catch me off guard! Fill me up, With words and stuff! My readers are waiting, This is just frustrating!   © 2017 Soiba Tahir Image: Clipartix        …

The Quest

December’s always been my favourite month.  Sitting by the fireplace, I wonder how time flies and crawls at the same time. I remember hearing somewhere that time passes quickly but moves very slowly. I take a sip of coffee and try to study the glowing fire. I get lost in the orangish yellow flame; it…
