Cage into your mouth

This rubber band, I mistook it for a


We poured white sugar instead of brown

in coffee already brewed

‘It tastes the same’

It’s like ice blocking fire, tough and strong

Until it gives up to the heat, weeping to bemoan

Another controversy between right and wrong

And the flames, they smile back, cynical

They creeped up and crawled along,

and we failed to decipher the movements of the withdrawn

Could you fit a cage into your mouth?

See what it is?

What is praise but a few exaggerated words?

What is this world but a constant state of hyperbole?

Sympathizing with my shame,

Here, take your consolation prize


It is just fumes laughing

yet crying


and with

smoldered leaves

in a bonfire

we lit a century ago

Mortified, like a skeleton

Wanting to vanish

Because even without life

It was still

labelled as

being a martyr

for flesh

The soul that had veered off course didn’t turn cold and bitter

Then why did you?

Hi. Now that you're here...let's just get this out of the way. I hadn't introduced myself in the past because when I first started this blog, I wanted it to be purely about my writing. This is not, and was never supposed to be, an anonymous blog. However, after almost a year of inactivity, I realize an 'about' section is...necessary? My name's Sadia. I live in Islamabad, Pakistan. Between uni/work/life in general, I try to take time to write. I own all content on this blog. Although, I do NOT own the images posted here, nor do I take credit for them whatsoever. I wanted to thank my visitors, for still being loyal and genuine after this long. In case you want to know more about me for whatever inexplicable reason, ask ahead and I'll get back to you! This right here, keeps me sane. You will find here, sincere thoughts mixed up with a subconscious trying to fuck it all up. I hope you understand. Love, Sadia.
