The Rhapsody of The Blues

An archaic tune playes over the dusty radio,Reminds me of a dwindling duet I almost forgot a second back,Every cosmic binder of the universe,Wants me to never forget the rhapsody of our love. Our rhapsody was melodious,The tune was full of life,And the lyrics of this rhapsody,Were the loving letters I wrote you. This rhapsody … Continue reading The Rhapsody of The Blues

An Ode to Examinations

The ink of scratching pens spilling onto the crisp parchment, A hurried agony of mulled up words, Embedded in your brain during the cicada’s screech in the previous pitched night, Showered with caffeine shots to last the term.
