First Line Friday

Dominic bowed his head to hide his face. He forgot that he did not need to do so, after the plastic surgery which has changed his appearance. It was an instinctive response on seeing the person who trusted him, but was backstabbed. He wondered if she had recognised him. But his body language was enough …

Paradox

It was a client who gave the counsellor the right perspective. “The problem is we cannot have part of a person. We need to accept the whole, though certain parts are so exasperating.” Parineeta thought about her husband who mirrored her father’s value system, and had attracted to him for that reason. He valued family, …

Random words in front of other random words create a random sentence

Random words in front of other random words create a random sentence ….. by Lady Lee

Ladyleemanila

Random words before random words

Create a random sentence cord

No agenda nor deadlines, try

Own voyage of discovery

Depends on my delivery

If it’s not good enough, I sigh

Look up the sky, something will fall

Whatever happens it’s my call

I’m my own author and speaker

I have fallen down once or twice

And it’s like throwing of the dice

Don’t know what’s next, I’m so eager

I’m a seeker of something lost

If I am crossed you’d be weeper*

इबादत

Playing with words

करके इबादत बना दिया मैंने खुदा तुझे
डरता हूँ अब बख़्शेगा क्या मेरा ख़ुदा मुझे

होते थे खुश सुनकर कभी हमसे अपनी तारीफ़
लगती है अब गुस्ताखी सी क्यों ऐ ख़ुदा तुझे

सुनते थे कि प्यार का भूखा होता है ख़ुदा
लगती नहीं क्यों वो पहले सी भूख ख़ुदा तुझे

काश करता कोई हमसे भी मुहब्बत हम सी
सिखला देते कैसा होता है खुदा तुझे

लगता है डर तेरी ऊँचाइयों से “अमित”
कैसे पहुंचूँ तुझ तक बतला दे ख़ुदा मुझे

Visit to the Shrink

Visit to the Shrink …. by thedarknetizen

The Dark Netizen

I come from a tribe of head-hunters, so I will never need a shrink.

It’s a paradox, but I believed it to be the truth. That was until the voices in my head began speaking. Just one in the beginning. But soon, nineteen others joined in. I demurred visiting a shrink even when their constant chattering and bickering began drowning out my own thoughts. On some lonely nights I would feel my entire conscious self shoved to the bottom of my mind, the voices taking over completely. For the very first time I felt that I was no longer in control of my own body. I booked an appointment with the shrink at once.

The shrink heard me out patiently, even heard out some of the statements made by the other voices. She asked me to write down the names of the voices, if I knew them. I knew all…

  • His thought process was on so many levels that he gave himself a phobia of heights.

  • I come from a tribe of head-hunters, so I will never need a shrink.

ENJOY!!

Overthinking was what he did best. His thought process was on so many levels that he gave himself a phobia of heights. Like a high-rise elevator, his mind would pause on every floor.And every time the doors opened, he would come up with a new idea.

Eventually, it would all get jumbled; random words in front of other random words, creating random sentences. By the end of the ride, nothing made sense.

Today, he was going on a first date with a beautiful girl he met online…
