Life never gave me lemons When I needed them I was never gently handed lemons They were hurled at my face Like life was an unruly child Bored, and I was a stray dog. I was bombarded with lemons When I asked for tangerines So I never understood what to do When life gives you… Continue reading Lemonade
Why can't can't I just breathe? Why does it have to remind me Of my mortality, my transience Why can't I just be? The sky is the proof of my insignificance Against the universe's infinity Why can't it just be blue? Why can't it just be pretty? A rose can be beautiful Not because of… Continue reading Miracle
It's midnight. Nothing right ever happens post 12. It's chilly outside, on the floor Not colder than life, I suppose. Late october breeze wakes me up Enough to sit up and see.

I was drinking juice today Orange, specifically And what happens next, I pray Happens to all my enemies A seed got stuck in the pipe As I was enjoying my beverage The juice of oranges so delightfully ripe Being denied to me, like I'm a savage As I focused on the culprit Massaged it out… Continue reading An Ode to the most Inspirational Glass of Orange Juice
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.

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. More specifically, my readers' horses, who just can't wait for another post by me. Hold your horses people! (I'm sorry I'll just let myself out.)… Continue reading The Sunshine Blogger Award (lolol)
"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

"How can you read so much Harry Potter Doesn't that make you sick?" I looked up, wearing my hufflepuff scarf To an idiot, who disturbed me while reading fanfic. I first wanted to strangle her How dare she insult ths best thing humans could ever create But the angel on my shoulder told me to… Continue reading I Could Explain
Every night without fail My mother will ask me to do something I hate I'll groan, throw my pen down Get up, grab the keys to go lock the gate Outside in the verandah I'll walk upto the gate as fast as I can I'll look around, into the deep dark night I'll watch the… Continue reading Poetree
