It's interesting how The universe looks from the floor Because the world is different at noon Everyone is awake yet asleep Listen to the world in the middle of the day It's trying to say something but it's faint Kinda opposite of midnight when my Evolutionary inner ear drowns in screams "Tanu why are you… Continue reading Truth Bombs
It's a beautiful morning today. The sky is blue with just a hint of sunshine. Birds are chirping and cool winds are blowing. It objectively great. Feels like something out of an R L Stevenson poem. My only wish is that my writers block would budge and let me write about it eloquently. I guess… Continue reading Thought Vomit
"Hey I'm winter I have arrived, fear me." Scared of you? Bitch please spare me. Your aesthetic's shit "let's embody depression!" And people's obsession with you? Cue my vomit emoji expression. Why have you hogged All the best holidays? I don't want to see my breath "Winter is pointless" Confucius says. You are a stone… Continue reading Winter: A Diss Track
Violet, was the baby chick's face Cold, vulnerable, in the dark Hungry, her mother flew out for food Nestling her baby in the bark. Indigo was the colour of the car That hit her, she fell on the ground Heaving with a limp wing Trying to run away from the hound. Blue was the sky… Continue reading Rainbow
A poem from back when I used to actually study.
Hey, you hear that, that distant cluck-cluck? No? Listen closely. Maybe put your ear on your phone? Better? Yeah, yeah you're getting it. Yes it's the sound of horses running.

"Where’s the milk?” I thought aloud. It was a Monday, early evening. Parents were out, sister was quietly studying in our room, and the air was finally cool enough for me to stand in the kitchen for more than 60 seconds. It was not bright enough outside that I should switch the lights off, but… Continue reading About Evenings and Cupcakes
As I am stuffed between two large men In the backseat of this uber pool ride I pull out my phone, pop in my earphones To drown the edm blaring from the headphones on my side. It's 8:30pm and I'm hungry Enough to eat someone's head off Not that I don't usually, but this time… Continue reading An Eventful Evening
"Jai!" cried Tanu, as she found herself, for the fourth time this week, staring at her mirror. "Come here right now or I'll frickin' kill you." She was really angry this time. Jai aparrated into the room like a ghost, as he was one. "You can't kill me if I'm already dead." he said casually.… Continue reading Boo!
The air is content The trees dance indifferently The sun is ever so boastful I lay on my back peacefully. The birds like me I think They sing something nice to me They make me almost forget That I have characters to be. The sun is more mighty than I thought I turn on my… Continue reading An Autumn Afternoon
"Hey Siri, will I ever be good enough?" "I'm not sure-" "Ah forget it." "-why you would ask me that. But you know what, I get it. I get that feeling Because it's hard to know for sure If you can ever be good enough. From what I've learnt, no success is ever pure. I… Continue reading A Conversation With My Phone

I don't know what to say about this year. Maybe it's one of those years which can't be summed up in a funny one-liner.
