I was told to not speak, so I stayed silent. I was told that in their ears, my silence was a screech, so I barge into my room. I was told that my absence was like a fog which engulfed the moon I panic and run out trying to find the concealed moon, oh ever… Continue reading Sin
I try to remember our last conversation, I try to remember what the last thing that you said to me was when we were all that we had, I try to trace out the moments when the curve of your lips changed to a frown, When the color of your eyes changed to a slightly… Continue reading Tired
One more day of heartfelt and cold-hearted wishes, gone. One more day of joy yet countless tears, gone. One more day gone without your hug. One more birthday has gone without you here, daddu. But I saw the sky today. For 10 minutes everything turned pink. And it reminded me of you. Your gift this… Continue reading Birthday Excerpt’22
I was staring at the page for so long, the pen that I held made my fingers go numb. But I couldn’t write. I couldn’t come up with anything. All I have is sad thoughts and all I do is pretend that I don’t. But on paper, I always felt like I could write all… Continue reading Maybe, it’s time to go
How is it over there? I wonder. Are you happy? Does laugh come to your face as easily as it did when I would do something stupid. Does it? Is it easier there? I wonder. Are you at peace? Knowing you don’t have to wake up early and work until the dusk sets in. Do… Continue reading I wonder
The nights are getting colder, the cool in the breeze is sweet. For now. It shall in the coming months become sharp enough to pierce through my skin. The nights are getting colder. Do you sometimes, just sometimes, think about holding me in your arms too? -K. © Khushbu M Luhar ’22
Oh to be kind, to be kind even after the havoc caused by this so called life. Oh to suppress what’s within just because you think there’s no one ready to see the weight you have been holding in. But then you come along. You don’t tell me that I don’t have flaws but you… Continue reading Color me blue
I just want you to know that I have placed my trust in palms before that were too fragile to handle the weight of it. My trust was a burning fire but, their hands were made of glass. It was always meant to break. I don’t expect you to understand any of this, but I… Continue reading Afraid
But you feel so familiar… Maybe I have known you for many lifetimes.

As I sleep in my bed at home knowing that it’s going to be a while before I’m wrapped in its comfort again, I feel restless. I turn and look to my side, the peaceful yet mysterious face of my mum is in front of my eyes. I can feel how tired she is of… Continue reading My excerpt pt 13

I painted this because I felt like the play was about life, you know, and life is full of color and we each get to come along and we add our own color to the painting, you know? And even though it’s not very big -the painting- you sort of have to figure that it… Continue reading Remind yourself of the painting
After all, there are things that death cannot touch.
There’s a lot of people who wished me but it feels so incomplete, your void howls at me. Although the sound of your laugh still echoes in my head even amidst all the chaos. In the past years, at midnight when the date changed, I saw this twinkle in your eyes when you wished me… Continue reading Birthday excerpt ’21
Have you ever felt torn between being complete yet totally void?
The night has started to get a little too dark I gaze out of my window, it’s terrifying yet calm The full moon is hidden behind the clouds, it’s light deliquescent “Do you still like the stars?” He asks, standing beside me. “Don’t you?” I smile, not taking my eyes off the sky. “Not anymore.… Continue reading Fiction prose #2
I looked at the sky yesterday Different shades of red, purple and pink The birds were returning back to their nests And slowly, the world started fading away Taking away it’s beautiful melancholy The sky is now changing colors, I give myself away to it’s vastness, piece by piece I stared at it for a… Continue reading My excerpt pt.11

But love isn’t like that. Love doesn’t have to be out of the world. It doesn’t have to be extraordinary. It doesn’t always have to be the most romantic thing ever. Love doesn’t have to be over the top. Love doesn’t always have to be in fairy tales. Because, Love, can be found in most… Continue reading Love.
Sometimes, just a meeting with one person is enough and sometimes, not even hundreds of meetings with someone else can give you that joy, that peace the other one gives you, no matter what. Weird it is, isn’t it?
It’s about time the water returns to the sea, after failing to kiss the shore It’s about time the night gets devoid of the light as along with faint light of the moon- it’s star is ready to intertwine It’s about time the books return to the hands who love to hold them, after having… Continue reading It’s about time

Maybe in two years maybe in five maybe in ten and sometimes, maybe when you have no years left on stakes You realise that, not facing the problem only lets the problem have the audacity to look you in the face. You realise that maybe facing them was a better option and maybe conversating was… Continue reading My excerpt pt.5

The difference between me & her.
If there’s more love in letting go, then why don’t people fancy death?
You run out of everything, eventually.

When the mind wanders so much and before you know it, the dawn has already come.
