“Stop staring at me!
Stupid cab, didn’t see the puddle.
Now please, eat baby, don’t fuss,” said June pushing the tray.
Just then Constantine appeared, “Sorry bud, I’m late, I was with your...”
Oskar’s tail wagged briefly before yelping.
The moist eyes searched for his parents, in the empty cage.
Gyanban Thoughts: Flash fiction after a long time. The subtext being promises broken and hope or the lack of it. We often set expectations without knowing the repercussions it may have on others...

and then, just like that,
one day we will fade away,
aging books on empty shelves,
receding memories of ourselves,
sail away leaving the shores of love,
with no fear or pain,
as life empties the shell,
warmth turns cold
tears lost in those palms
those eyes which walk miles,
lost in silence ,
to the noise of it all,
and then, just like that,
one day, we will fade away...
Gyanban Thoughts : a few lines to take a pause and think about all those people we ve lost in time and the realization that someday, we will just like them, fade away.... huh, just like that....

Mothers shrieking, pain singing a ballad,
Gyanban Thoughts: thought of it as a paintbrush, just a streak across the canvas, with the paint trickling down the surface, not trying to make a statement, but just capturing a moment in time

If he dies young,he had a great future,
If he lives long,they hope he dies soon.
If he spends less,he is stingy,
If he spends more,he's obviously showing off.
If he travels less,he's a frog in the well,
If he travels more, he's a nomad.
If he mixes with people, he's a social animal,
If he lives alone, of course he's ostracised.
If he smiles at everyone,he's creepy,
If he frowns, he's grumpy.
If he looks you in the eye, he's gaping,
If he looks away, he's shifty.
If he talks less, he's arrogant,
If he talks more, he's over confident,
If he sits still, he's must be scared,
If he moves around, he's restless.
If he speaks loudly, he's brash,
If he whispers, he's shy.
If he is polite, he has no spine,
If he demands, he's a dictator.
If he dresses as he chooses, he's a rebel,
If he follows norm, he's boring.
If he has a preference, his orientation is wrong,
If he remains in the closet, he's a hypocrite.
If he has morality, he's prude.
If he is liberated, he's certainly promiscuous.
If he chose tradition, he's old,
If he chose modernism, he's an upstart.
If he believes in his God, he is a fanatic.
If he renounces religion, he is a traitor.
If he has no God, he'd rather die,
If this is truth, he'd rather lie.
where do you stay
and where will you explore?

Walk with me, make me sway
Like a dreamy cloud caresses the window
Dream with me, fly with me, nadir or crescendo.
Strolling down with ease
Rests on the button,
and then dives in with passion.
as the heady feelings collide,
a storm builds inside
whips up a hungry tide.
Pine trees sway their leaves,
A warm breath in a cold breeze.
Beautiful houses yet ugly homes Quiet neighborhood and loud music Bright paints and dark insides, High rises and low patience. Transparen...
