#AtoZChallenge : Empty

#AtoZChallenge : Empty

From the always enthusiastic Alana, I’ve now become a lost Alana!   Our lives mostly flow on a fixed course. Yes, there are little diversions that we need to take occasionally but even then it usually follows the same old path. Birth, Education, Job, Marriage, Old Age and then Death. The stages are the same.  We have our dreams, our hopes and our aspirations. But […]

#AtoZChallenge :Dear Future Husband

#AtoZChallenge :Dear Future Husband

I looked at myself in the mirror and I liked the way I looked. In fact, for a moment I couldn’t believe that it was my reflection in the mirror. The gown was a beautiful one and it suited me well.  I got into the nicely decorated car and we drove to the church.   “Congratulations!”   That is what you want to say right? […]

#AtoZChallenge : Cheap Thrills

#AtoZChallenge : Cheap Thrills

I look at my bank balance and worry lines begin to form on my forehead. It is just the 15th of the month and there is barely any money left. Bank balance reads Rs. 1000. I search or rather hunt in the pockets of all my old jeans, open all bags and purses with the hope of finding some money. But what do I find […]

#AtoZChallenge : Breathe

“Take a deep breath. Breathe in, breathe out!” “It is going to be okay”   No, that isn’t any of my friends or a family member consoling me. Its me, Alana talking to myself like I always do! I’ve a job interview and I’m freaking out.   I stayed up all night to prepare for the interview and I felt pretty confident or so I […]

#AtoZChallenge : Anything but Ordinary

#AtoZChallenge : Anything but Ordinary

I feel that I’m on top of the world. The dazzling lights, the beautiful floral arrangements, the stage and not to forget the large number of people who are here today. They are all here for me. I hear my name being called out and I stand up to walk towards the stage. I’m wearing a beautiful designer dress. A diamond necklace and matching earrings […]

#AtoZChallenge : Theme Reveal

After the wonderful experience that I had participating in the A to Z challenge last year, this year I didn’t even thinking a second time before deciding to sign up for the challenge. Last year was the first time I took up the challenge. I was really worried if I’d be able to complete the challenge. I not only completed the challenge, but I got […]

Blackout poetry: Do you?

Blackout poetry: Do you?

Not a piece of art but my first attempt at Blackout poetry. Here is the text of the poem.   The only time, That I deeply loved, She assumed that I don’t. I couldn’t cope alone, All was difficult. One day, A call had been given. From the way she stares, Something told me, How wonderful something about us, Something that I started to focus, […]

Will you be my sunshine?

Will you be my sunshine?

He liked the outdoors. I preferred staying indoors with a book in my hand. But we were good together. “Meet me at 8 am near the Gardens” he’d said. We’d never met that early! It was a lovely day, with the sun shining and a gentle breeze. He walked into the garden with that never fading smile. Before I could even say “Hi” he was kneeling […]

Wish you were here

Wish you were here

“We’ll make a snowman” “And I’ll hit you with a snowball” “Can we go out in the snow? It’ll be cold!” “Its a dream, silly. We may never see the snow” I recalled the conversation that we had as kids. Looking at it snow, I wished you were here. Time had passed. The distance and misunderstandings had grown. We’d fought. Would you still remember me? […]

A whiff of nostalgia

A whiff of nostalgia

I look outside my window. It is a bright and beautiful day with the lovely blue sky and the giant white fluffy clouds, the trees all green and the beautiful blooming flowers. I want to keep staring outside or better still I am tempted to go for a walk. But I look around me and reality strikes me. Ten huge cardboard boxes stare at me. […]
