The Guarded and the Displayed

--short story   I'm posting a short story here for the first time. I'm not exactly a story-writing person, I'm more into poetry. And so I was so damn shocked (still am) when I won the first prize for the writing competition at my uni's YouthFest 2018. So, here it is.. It's based on the... Continue Reading →

Roots and Derivations

-- poetry   The squeak of the floorboards made it quiver, The little chap that was staining pages. There ain’t no monsters that make him shiver, Rather it’s his haven from all the real rages. That deep safe corner under his bed. But even the safest lasts for only a flicker. Before his fear rockets... Continue Reading →
