“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

Empty Spaces

“Why do people have to be this lonely? What's the point of it all? Millions of people in this world, all of them yearning, looking to others to satisfy them, yet isolating themselves. Why? Was the earth put here just to nourish human loneliness?” –Haruki Murakami















Blood shot eyes and sleepless nights;
am crawling back to loneliness,
in those dark streets of memories;
choosing to dump myself in silence,
where I go numb or feel less;
and figure out this enigmatic sadness.

Yearning resides in the darkest corner;
empty spaces haunt me to the core,
as it yawns in the middle of night;
and echoes loud at my door,
it absorbs me like a demon came alive;
leaves me paralysed yet unsure.

All alone, on my own;
with my shadow walking by my side,
isolated thinking filling up my mind;
I reveal my scars; don’t wanna hide,
yeah they are somewhere still alive;
they are deep, hidden inside.

Yearning resides in the darkest corner;
empty spaces haunt me to the core,
as it yawns in the middle of night;
and echoes loud at my door,
it absorbs me like a demon came alive;
leaves me paralysed yet unsure.
