The bill

First Date

“You already paid the bill?” he exclaimed
Same clothes. Same date. Same restaurant.

 She hadn’t imagined that one year down the line she’d have something money couldn’t buy.

Vodka coffee wheel

In this generation of vodka and coffee, how do I find love? In this life of human pyramids where everyone races to be on top, how do I find ambition? In this world of swipes, likes and fake profiles how do I trust? In an existence of dope laughs and filtered smiles, how do I find happiness? In a place where everyone is deluded and depressed, how do I find meaning? 

In a world where impact is important, but change is unwelcome. Where nights are spent with Vodka induced smiles and mornings spent drowning our dreams in coffee, working towards places we aren’t sure we want to reach, holding hands of people we aren’t sure we’ll see the next time the vodka coffee wheel spins.

Dear Diary,

Dear Diary,

We over think, over imagine and perceive our difficulties as catastrophic!

“We perceive our past as sweeter than it was, our present worse than it is, and our future more uncertain than it would be. 

I realize we pay too much attention to people and things that are irrelevant! We fail to see that in the end everything works out, everything turns out well.. and if it doesn’t then it’s not the end.. the best is yet to come!

So what can you do right now?

Karam! Do your work to the best of your abilities. Take a deep breath and believe that god has certain plans for you. Have faith that those plans are good!”

~ Sincerely

The old me.

Meri tareefon ke pul bandhne walon,

Mere husn ke kaseede padhne walon,

Kabhi meri rooh ko bhi jhank kar deko,

Iss chand si soorat main zakham bhi hain.
(English Meaning)

You who praises me,

You who sees me as beautiful,

See the depth of my soul sometimes,

This moon like pretty face has wounds on it.

Zakham (Wounds)

Noor (Love yourself)

Kudrat ke ae hasin noor,

Teri paheliyan ajab hain.

Afsos! Jisne inhen pehchana nahin,

Voh tere kabil nahin.        

(English meaning)

You’re a gift of nature,

Your mysteries are mesmerising.

Oh! The fools who don’t see them,

Aren’t worth your beauty.

Tere ishq ki qadar hai mujhe,

Ae mere ashiq,

Tu mujhe beparwah mat thehra.

Meri masroofiyat ke bahane,

Tu mujhe zalima mat kehla.

(English meaning)

I value your love,

Oh my darling,

It’s not that I don’t care.

Don’t let my lack of time,

Make you see me as the devil.

Masroofiyat (Being Busy)

Stars🌟 & sparkles 🌌

​I never thought,

I’ll know someone like you,

I never thought,

We’d ever click.

You were like this breath of fresh air,

that twinkle in your eyes,

that hope and innocence,

that cute little smile.

You made me feel young again,

the childish flutters felt again,

your stories, like an adventure;

your heart, like a snowflake;

bright , pure, simple & gentle.

You took me in and held me close,

cracked open my inner doors,

Said all those sweet lies,

That made me feel beautiful and nice.

Then there were times,

I saw your wantonness,

You opened your heart,  so vulnerable;

if only I could trust someone.

As I felt your fire enclosing,

I couldn’t take it anymore,

without a word or a final bye,

with disregard to your open confessions,

I let in my demons.

Convinced myself this wasn’t right,

thought it was an idea real bright,

to leave before it hurts,

Maybe I was mistaken,

maybe it does.

But that hurt is bitter-sweet,

You were like that wishing star,

you had to go away,

but you lit up my world.

Made me realize there was more to me,

made me fall in love with myself,

for that you will always be special,

finally found a nickname for you,

my star it’s ‘Twinkle’.

Conditional Friendship

Oh okay sure you don’t want to talk,
Oh okay sure you are busy,
Oh okay sure you are anti social,
Oh okay sure I’ll just let you be.

Yes I am always available,
Yes I have no one else,
Yes your sweet lies sting my soul,
Yes you’re too good.


Yes I got a golden opportunity,
Yes I worked hard for it,
Yes I found new passions,
Yes I befriended better souls.


Oh okay sure you wanna talk,
Oh okay you are at my beck and call,
Oh okay you want some favours,
Oh okay that’s all.
