Nice to everybody

The more you see how temporary everything is, the more you want to be extremely nice to everybody. Reminders, from today To the war veteran on the wheelchair, sitting outside on a warm day The young woman alone with a child To the young man huddled in the comfort of his cheap phone The beggarContinue reading “Nice to everybody”

How do you handle yourself?

How do you handle yourself? As an easterner as a westerner, as a man as a woman, as an artist; an analyst, emotional; emotionless, careful; careless, sensual; asexual, young; old, rich; poor, as a fighter, as a hopeless, as a leader, a follower; a rebel, a friend; a foe; a lover; a hater, beautiful; hideous,Continue reading “How do you handle yourself?”

Late 90s crushes

Between the ages of fourteen and sixteen, I was desperately in love with college guys. From the dirty window of my prison school bus, I could see them freely walking around the nearby campus with plaid shirt and loose jeans on, nonchalantly listening to music in their headphones while carrying a low hanging worn backpack. I heldContinue reading “Late 90s crushes”

“Life is but a Dream” – Lewis Carroll

A boat, beneath a sunny sky Lingering onward dreamily In an evening of July Children three that nestle near, Eager eye and willing ear, Pleased a simple tale to hear Long has paled that sunny sky; Echoes fade and memories die; Autumn frosts have slain July. Still she haunts me, phantomwise, Alice moving under skiesContinue reading ““Life is but a Dream” – Lewis Carroll”

Just keep swimming

Hot air nags and tugs the burning skin. Just cut through all the nonsense and dive in. Power swim across this deceivingly peaceful shark tank. Plunge away from every little thing. Rinse away the pain and the anxiety. Motor your way through life. Just keep swimming. Swim for survival. Swim to breathe. Swim to finallyContinue reading “Just keep swimming”

The unromantic deal with romance

“Forever romance” with solely one person is really hard to live up to forever, although this type of exclusiveness is highly prized and romanticized in the arts and in modern societies. Due to our intelligent and curious nature, humans are instinctively promiscuous, polygamous, and serially monogamous. The peak of infatuation/attraction, where it sickens you toContinue reading “The unromantic deal with romance”

No reason to explain why

There’s a concrete parking lot, cracked and with weed forming on the sides. There’s a first floor classroom, crowded, cold and unfamiliar; the people in it untrustworthy, suspicious, and dangerous. Sounds of machine carpentry on a summer day, mechanical, penetrating, uncomfortable. The smell of roadkill, toxicity, and cancer. A feeling of repetition, limbo, unwanted lonelinessContinue reading “No reason to explain why”

Lucky from the top

How lucky am I to see the world from this vantage point right now? Birds chasing boats, boats probably chasing fish… Three pigeon friends walking in line and circle dancing once in a while The precise rise and dives of the birds Majestic man made towers Probably fresh scent of pizza, simmering with buzzing downtown lights acrossContinue reading “Lucky from the top”

हिजो बार बजे (Last night at 12 o’clock)

हिजो बार बजे सूतन गयेको, अनि एक बजे तिर निंद्र लाग्यो… झ्याल मा ठुलो चंद्रमा थियो, अनि 4:50 मा ऊठेको… तेस पछि घुम्या घुमै Last night at 12 o’clock went to bed, then around 1am sleep came… on the window there was full moon, and at 4:50 got up… afterwards… endless run. 20100728

Trying to figure out thoughts and the meaning of life

Me… when i’m not in my bed, writing thoughts– if i’m in my bed blandly writing thoughts, but when I’m not in my bed writing because something happened that made me feel inspired to write thoughts, then, it appears– almost everything else is meaningless.

My source of inspiration

How far should I travel, to find you, my source of inspiration? How much longer should I wait, until I see your face again from another dimension? Until I converse about life and all things that I’m battling with, and for you to give me some tips on living? How long can I sustain theContinue reading “My source of inspiration”
