“At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers—shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader.” –Alberto Manguel

Paranoid Humanoids

I know Cassius is around me;
planning me to back-stab till it digs my heart,
I wish I could unfold the conspiracy;
and again get back to the start.

I will fight till the last drop of my blood;
so am gonna roll up my sleeves and pull up my socks,
to give the best of whatever I can; 
to leave no stone unturned and unlock the life box.

But temme how to escape these paranoid humanoids?
who are fair weather cocks and unfaithful guides.

All I can do is to redeem myself;
to mend my shattered heart if I can,
I donno how will I make all this happen?
but imma work out for this plan.

So am gonna burn midnight oil;
when the rest of the world sleeps; then work I,
to winnow the overwhelming odds out;
and make most of the time that passes by.

But temme how to escape these paranoid humanoids?
who stab my heart till into two it divides.

P.S. My creation, please do not copy!!
P.P.S Cassius was an unfaithful character in Julius Caesar by Shakespeare.


  1. Shreya,

    We all have to be careful as there are so many Cassiuses in today's world. One needs to understand a person well before opening heart to him or her. I learnt it the hard way during my time but once I learnt it paid well. Keep your thoughts to yourself till you are absolutely sure of person with whom you share anything. Certain thoughts are still best kept to self.

    Take care

  2. Each word speaking a profound meaning here. Very well written Shreya! :D
