Oxygen

Physical health issues have taken a toll on me, most of the times I’m unable to breathe. I feel as if there is something heavy in my chest that’s blocking my airways. Anxiety and depression have also kicked in because my mental health couldn’t stand the desperation caused by my physical health. I can’t breathe,…

Anxious

Man always crushes my hopes but I’ve loopholes. The most important one is me being a human being. Such a petty fragile human! This is self-pity. This is me writing while I face a writer’s block. I’ve gone deep into this nasty abyss called life and this chasm does not let me write. It’s stripping…

Sunset

I am an absurd introvert. People close to me are the ones I value and the ones who make me feel like an extrovert when I’m around them. But the society in which I live in continues to pull me stronger into its nauseous gravitational field. People scare me nonetheless; I’m forced to be fake…

Words

I avoid situations because I’m a coward. “Everything’s in control, my heart is throbbing.” ” Fights, boy why am I still alive?” I don’t know maybe it’s my mind, maybe we all are just our minds. I know I’ve started to sound absurd by now but I think I’m  a coward because I’ve got nothing…

Wake-up Call

My much-loved surroundings They strip me away from my dear ones Make me go against my will, This the basis I came into being? Ah this isn’t any reason at all! I must find it Till I go back into slumber They keep me pushing away from it These forces are powerful My willpower crumbles…

Black Hole

I’ve lost my dreams Now, Nightmares make me scream The path ahead is blurry You say not to worry I keep on walking nevertheless And, vagueness grows with every step Treading on a forbidden path That’s leading me down into the dark abyss, Sweet Lord, When would I arise? © Soiba

Fractured

Capturing what’s inside of me since I’ve been born has not only made me a hushed moron but also a pathetic writer. I always try to hide my sentiments from the world because I can’t show how weak I am to them. To the world, I am the strongest and a cold person who doesn’t…

Recovery

Fall brings newness with itself. Strange how weathers keep on changing but fall has its own charm. Can’t always relate the charm with warmth or ruthlessness, it’s somewhat mystifying. I remember how my heart was throbbing so badly this time when fall suddenly fell upon me. I wouldn’t say suddenly, I was ready for it…

A Tiny Token of Gratitude

I am not good at expressing myself. Maybe that’s the reason I write. I never developed the habit of sharing my thoughts. Maybe I didn’t have true friends or I was/am designed this way. I guess I’ll never know. So when my thought sharing door was completely closed, I embraced two ways, One-Sobbing Alone-I know…

Reality Hurts

I woke up from my fantasy week, Now things just seem bleak!   I believe fairy tales don’t exist, As reality hits me with a fist!   No matter how hard I try to avoid, These dreams always make me Paranoid!   How skillfully I lie to myself, But actually I know Fantasy is beautiful…
