Losing every creative bone by the minute, I come tantalizingly close to existentialism. I don’t know if its bravery to stare right into it or to chide at it by giving it the name of boredom. I keep writing in my own head but everything seems to disappear behind a cloudy memory. What are daydreams but self-guided hallucinations? My fingertips move too often, a Parkinsonian tragedy for the pen that I never even hold anymore. The sun tells me to calm down and I oblige and the world seems still, even if it is for a fleeting moment. Peace feels like it’s on the run, a prisoner of its own device. I try to find meaning in this bizarre bulky world and in my foolishly charming attempts, all that happens is spectacular failure. Every forgettable indie song becomes an anthem for my coming of age, an event that surely has surpassed me by now but I keep waiting for it to happen, I cling to it like it’s the only thing I know and seek and need. Where exactly am I stuck in the age continuum? Somewhere between being a teenager for the first time and being an adult for the last time. It’s not a crisis for the early 20s, there aren’t enough wine bottles around to call it that. Yet. To feel just doesn’t seem like it’s enough anymore. How is one to feel without experiencing anything? Everything I feel seems to be an out of body sensation that I observe as an outsider. Am I really feeling it? Or am I just thinking that I am feeling it? Either way, it is overwhelming. I feel like I’m not emotionally equipped to handle the kind of emotions that I face. What amazes me though, is how empty my spirit feels despite facing all these overflowing emotions. Is there a way out of this? I really don’t know. But perhaps, picking up the pen is a start.
Hi there! Such a warm, breezy day it is outside as I am slowly gliding my hands from word to word to create a symphony among the randomly-arranged alphabets swept across the keyboard. okay no. This is who I am. Details,basically. Details overwhelm me. Gleaming motifs suffused with color. Dark shadows in narrow alleys. Subtle sunlight through the canopies. Air redolent with mist. I love anything and everything capable of enticing me into a deep thought process. Soft drizzles. Pine woods. Streaks of freshly mown grass. I love music and literature and books and photography and travel. Yes. perception and perspective. love and laughs. rocks and rivers. And this is what I intend to do. Write for my love for writing. The sheer pleasure. Let it be eccentric, unconventional, beautiful, what have you. This is me. Welcome to the world of a whimsical and wandering soul. P.S.- don't forget to gaze through the window panes. x]

What a wonderful read. I felt like reading something on WordPress and when your post comes in the reader, I know I got something poetic to read. But you write everything poetic. Keep writing.
