झरना बहता रहा। 

पत्ते रंग बदलते रहे। 

हम किताबों में उलझे,

जिंदगी के मायने ढूंढते रहे।

Random 56: Existence

Lying under a thick blanket.

With no movements, I stay still.

Atomic, scattered & unmasked

thoughts gathering in my dreams.

I struggle to connect the dots.

and overstressed me.

I shivered.

My existence proven.
