    Alibi…never really used the word. Reminds me of the word “scapegoat”. Ding!

  • Nishat commented on the post, desk 6 years, 11 months ago

    a pile of papers on my desk that haven’t been touched. A big mug of coffee, as dark as night. I want to go to sleep; curl up under my blanket and die. Damn these exams!

  • Nishat commented on the post, blaze 6 years, 11 months ago

    I miss the blaze of your eyes at the sight of me. The light of our candle is down to a mere flicker. And I sit here and despair over the loss of my love.

  • Nishat commented on the post, temper 6 years, 12 months ago

    You need to control your temper; don’t back away when I tell you to; don’t take all my criticism; don’t let me upset you; don’t let me hurt you; I need to control my temper.

  • Nishat commented on the post, exquisite 6 years, 12 months ago

    Your eyes are exquisite. Sharp, and beautifully shaped liked a precious gem. Also the reason why I can’t have you.

  • Nishat commented on the post, belief 7 years ago

    Belief is a beautiful little word; I believe in ghosts and fairies and demons and monsters and nature and science; and my beliefs are not making sense anymore; and I turn my beliefs into disbelief; and out springs […]

  • Nishat commented on the post, town 7 years ago

    This town is not my home. It grinds away at my being like an endlessly rolling wheel. I need you here. I need you with me.

    My residence building smells like buttery popcorn. I love coming home at night.

  • Nishat commented on the post, camera 7 years, 1 month ago

    I had to snap one last picture of you, one last memory etched in frozen time, one last twinkle, one last spark. But alas, my battery flashed low power and I was running out of time. I clicked frantically, hoping […]

    Funny now alternating the c and a can make the word sacred, mutate into scared.

  • Nishat commented on the post, chief 7 years, 1 month ago

    The chief looked at all of us, stern as steel, walking with an air of confidence. As he walked past me, though, I noticed slight twinkle in his eyes flared up ever so delicately.
    He can never be professional […]

    “It’s going to be EPIC!”
    I’m running out of catchy ways to advertise for fundraisers. So I have to make false promises.

  • Nishat commented on the post, wagon 7 years, 1 month ago

    The wagon dragged along, down the hill, down the bumpy track, stumbling occasionally. But it must carry its loads to the lake. Finally, to drown by its own weight.

  • Nishat commented on the post, festival 7 years, 1 month ago

    These festivities are meant to fill that hole in your heart left by those troughs in life, when you fall, and just want to pretend it’s alright.

  • Nishat commented on the post, glimmer 7 years, 2 months ago

    A glimmer of hope in the eyes of darkness. Just a spark of light to know we’re alright. That’s all I needed. Just a sign that you still cared. You still loved me.

  • Nishat commented on the post, deer 7 years, 7 months ago

    I wasn’t thinking, just running. Trotting down the dusty, broken, land, I thought of life and death. Alongside the running river, I ran, and wondered when the hungry tigress would catch up. I didn’t know if I was strong enough to survive, but I had to try.

  • Nishat commented on the post, succeed 7 years, 7 months ago

    Success is a vast spectrum of opportunities made most of. To Lipi, in Bangladesh, success is putting food on the table. Come to think of it, success is very simple, you just need some perspective.

  • Nishat commented on the post, repeat 7 years, 7 months ago

    “I’m sorry, can you repeat that?”
    And the answer changed my life.

  • Nishat commented on the post, thread 7 years, 7 months ago

    There is an invisible thread that connects me to you. It’s thin, fragile and delicate. And it is prone decay. If time allows, our bond will last, otherwise, it will break.

  • Nishat commented on the post, punishment 7 years, 7 months ago

    Negative feedback has been, and still is, a vital factor in adaptation. In other words, punishment is how we evolved. Punishment can be the end, or a brand new beginning. On the smaller scale, it makes you realize what you’re doing wrong. And helps you grow. It’s nothing to be afraid of.
