I’ve driven through the mountains in search of you; I’ve crossed boundaries – on land and sea – in pursuit of you.

I’ve seen what you can do to people – build them into more than humans and then cause them to crumble. You’re as dangerous as fire, a threat graver than death but you’re salvation, a fate better than heaven.

I remember the first and the only time we brushed shoulders – in a crowded train, in my crowded brain, you entered and left a lasting impression. I remember the moment our eyes met and I’d realised how inept I was at hiding my feelings.

That day, that time, that moment, I was no longer safe – from feeling incapable at life, having lived so many years in your absence. At the same time, your sheer presence in my life, in my brain and in my heart – harmonized all my thoughts, my dreams and my future and merged them with yours.

Three Line Tales – Bridge of Love


I was very lucky that I stumbled upon Sonya’s Three Line Tales the moment I got onto WordPress. I had this odd feeling I wasn’t going to get any writing done today until I saw this photo prompt attached to a tiny little update post. Suddenly, in a matter of seconds, the entire scene played itself in my head. I could see the characters on that bridge in a made-up town in a made-up country living their entire lives, giving me the responsibility to write their story. This is why I love writing!

The Bridge of Love



It was here that we first met; it was here that our eyes, our minds, our souls – everything –  merged into one.

It wasn’t here.

The moment your breath filled my lungs and my heart pumped your blood, it wasn’t here; we weren’t here; we weren’t anywhere and we were everywhere.

A very late Tuesday Short: Love and Nothing

Now that 99% of Instagram users have shifted to Snapchat, it feels like the right time to get back onto the previously popular photo app. To celebrate this momentous occasion, I decided to write a ‘Tuesday Short’ on Friday. Hope you guys like it!

Love and Nothing


Love has the power to bind us together.

And yet, to some, to too many, it means nothing.

50 Word Stories – The Beauty of Love

Couple Walking

He knew he was nothing – No job, no prospects, no future.

Her life was planned for her – graduation next year, three months of internship, two more years of work, meet Prince Charming, marriage, kids. She wasn’t happy.

Then, their eyes met. They met.

She was his future; he, her happiness.

“Speak now or …”

She wasn’t invited.

This is slowly becoming one of my favourite challenges – Ben at A Hopelessly Wandering Mind gives us only one word as a prompt every week, and the participants have only six words to write their own story. This week’s theme is Purgatory.

You can find the other entries here.

Hope you enjoy 🙂

Six Word Stories Challenge: Passion

Ben at A Hopelessly Wandering Mind is back with another challenge.

If you missed last week’s challenge, I (and 60+ others, which is a phenomenal response for week #1) wrote on the theme of loss. I recommend that you visit Ben’s blog and check out the other entries, especially last week’s winners – those were some fantastic six word stories. This week, the theme is passion. Hope you like my entry; please feel free to post your thoughts in the comment section below.
