Dearest Dad (An Open Letter to My Healer – My Father!)

Dearest Dad, I don't believe I could ever have enough, or the right, words to present as a tribute to you. After all, how could I give a form to all the unconditional love we carry for each other. While it would never be entirely possible to write about what I feel for you, let's [...]

Last Vacation Ever With Mom – Murree, 2010 (Pictures)

These pictures were taken during that trip, from a camera she had gifted me. Partly because photography seemed to take my mind away from the impending doom and partly because a part of me was still hopeful she'd live and we'd look back to these pictures and smile together.

Snippets From My Diary; China-dish

That is the funny thing about people. They are always obsessed with the idea of you, your apparent perfection, what you are in their heads; smooth, glistening and without a fault. But as soon as the see the breach, a slit, a tear, a wound - they start taking backward steps.  Like a customer really [...]

New Series – Fragments From My Past 

Back in 2010, when my mother passed away due to cancer, I decided to start posting my poems and pieces online. Barely 5 percent of anything I wrote made it online, but that's still a lot.  Read more about my Mom here.. I made a Facebook page, specifically for sharing what I wrote but then changed [...]
