“The urge to create is not a rational feeling. It knows no boundaries and it follows no timetables. It is often unreasonable.”
I am mostly a poet but I sometimes delve into long-form writing as well. Below is a selection of my most popular and favourite writings. If you’d like to discuss any of these, you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Of Friends Forever Lost” at Medium. Featured on the homepage. Selected for audio recording by Medium editors.
“I can’t recall his voice or how tall he was or what his face looked like. The only thing I do remember is the gaping hole left in the pit of my stomach when I realised he wasn’t coming.”
“Hating and Loving the IPL” at ESPN Cricinfo.
I am a cricket fan have spent countless hours following matches on the ESPN Cricinfo website. To have this story published on the website is a massive tick on my bucket list!
“A Box of Sweets” at The Junction.
This is a short story that always gets a bit of attention around Halloween. I don’t want to give it away, so have a read and find out what happens.
“Giving Money to Strangers” at Medium. Selected by the editors to be featured in the curated Self topic.
“He showed me his train ticket with tears in his eyes, his voice breaking. Could I lend him some money, he asked. Just enough to get to the train station and perhaps to buy some dinner?”
“Tequila” at Medium. Selected by the editors to be featured in the curated Lit topic.
“It was a line in that novel she kept reading. Love is never saying you’re sorry. Something like that. Isn’t that the stupidest thing you’ve ever heard? And nasty. If I love someone, when I love someone, I say sorry all the time. Every minute, every hour, every second. Everyone would, wouldn’t they? Any sane person would.”
“Home” at Medium. Selected by the editors to be featured in the curated Lit topic.
One of my many writings that have taken birth in that feeling of nostalgia living inside the heart of everyone who leaves one home to find another.
