From the 3rd of this month

And my muscles ache and the void that exists is nowhere close to being covered.The days go by and I find myself lost out there. The distractions lose their effect and reality scratches and exposes itself. I accept today that I am bad when it comes to keep moving. It is not my strength.

When the shitstorm passes over?

I left a month ago and by this time I was in a different place, breathing different air and completely unaware of what was to come in the next month.

A window

My mom loves cleaning. On Sundays I'd be home, we would listen to some old Hindi songs and have our breakfast. I will find myself on my pc to either pay bills or check my email (personal) and mom would get to cleaning things. Today, my sister opened the window saying it is not that… Continue reading A window
