I betrayed a Friend
I betrayed a Friend
Today I am not going to write about an intended subject and hit the publish button. Generally, it would have given me satisfaction and assured me that I am active. I cannot deny the fact that my priorities with this blog have changed. It is like I have betrayed an old friend. Sometimes, I think I am alone in this writing journey, but then, all writers in the history of writing were lonely,…

Scary stories to tell over Chai(tea)!
Scary stories to tell over Chai(tea)!
The story of Jinnistan is exactly what the title indicates. There are short, creepy tales that are eerie, yet fascinating at the same time. If there’s something Pakistanis love more than December weddings and desi food, it’s jinn stories. Additionally, if you are told that it is based on true events, then it definitely perks your excitement. The stories get scarier the deeper we drift in the…

It is mend with Gold!
It is mend with Gold!
I am stunned by my heart, How it can break multiple times, You don't care, it's hard to mend. Yet, as if it is made of gold, It's rare and comes from the Earth's core. Made from all the fusions and decay, Oh, look how my heart needs energy, When the star will collide in a supernova, I will be out of my coma. You think my time is finished, Baby, don't be surprised by my worth, I will gleam at the…

Unknown World
By Jamila Murtaza I stand on the crumbling balcony,The sunlight blinding me.I take a glimpse of the sea,Yet I feel no glee.I wonder why this void thrives,It made the jovial moments deprive.I wish I knew what it was,That made my heart so desolate.Birds sang and the sun danced,The sea roared and winds swayed,The world seemed […]Unknown World So, I won the Picture Inspired Poetry Contest on…

Emotions
Being sensitive isn’t a weakness. Crying is not something to be ashamed of. There is nothing apologetic about feeling things and expressing them. It’s humanly, and a gift. The world prohibits us, humiliate us because they are heartless, weak and scared of themselves. Being a human is a courageous commitment in a world where the world wants you to be a machine. It takes courage to express…

What does feminism mean to you?
Recently, I was scrolling through my Instagram stories and I saw the word ‘Feminism’ used in the wrong context. After that, I was forced to write this. I don’t know if that person said it mockingly. However, there are still people out there who don’t comprehend the meaning of Feminism. They think it’s wrong or it’s a platform that women use for their benefits (which at some point true.) But it’s…

A Woman is No Man by Etaf Rum

Review: Regretting You by Colleen Hoover
Review: Regretting You by Colleen Hoover
Regretting You is another book by Colleen Hoover, published in 2019. I remember Confess was the first book I read by Colleen, and I fell in love with her writing. That book still tops my list. Since then, she became my favourite author. I went into this book blindly, which I love to do with Colleen Hoover books because her stories are surprising. Also, the cover seemed alluring. It was a mix of…

Guiding Reflections.
I walk surrounded by trees the gale teases me. I am captivated, it’s so green. I am the queen of my dreams. But when I open my eyes, She sees me as she recognizes. Her face is wise that it seems a lie. I stand inches away from her. But often, my vision gets blur. In the lonely silence with many questions, Her eyes seem calm ready with a couple of suggestions. Whispers I hear quietly, my body…
