Zombie


Yesterday he murdered her, Today she killed herself... He exists in her dreams...She exists in his nightmares...They no longer know each other; They no longer pretend to be in love...They aren't happy, they aren't sad...they have drifted apart and so has time...

I think she is dying, I know she is...I think I know her, I know her very well...She does not feel anything anymore.She is numb to all endearments...She died the day they raped her...She can see them everywhere...They are hollow men, faceless and empty...They have a body but possess no soul...Her body is ragged, her mind weary, but yes she still possesses what they do not...She has a soul...They are blind to folly, deaf to justice, mute to goodness...They made a zombie out of her and yet, she gets up each time they try vanquishing her...

The silver lining, yes all her life she looked for it...Perhaps she found it...Yes she found it...but she found it that midnight when it rained so heavily that it drenched all her desires...That night the whole world slept in peace...Yet, she did not sleep...She tried crying with happiness but she could not, she tried crying with sorrow and again she failed.
..In him she found the silver lining but even he murdered her, brutally, mercilessly...She keeps failing and yet she has faith...Faith in her dreams, even though she does not sleep...

i love the way, you narrate...
The paradoxical description like "They aren't happy, they aren't sad...they have drifted apart and so has time..." lifts reader in a poetic
ambiance... i like the title Zombie
..a robot(emotionless), machine, sleepwalker....

hey anukriti, there is an award for you on my blog

The Zombie reminded me of a Manto story.Your narration is abstract but it starts making sense to the soul if not so much to the mind so I keep reading your posts until I realize they have ended.

You write in twilight...
There is angst... and there is fear...
There is hope... and there is dread...

I guess that's life...

I never imagined that I would be able to find you in this blogging world. But somehow I managed to do that.

Good to see your blog which has improved a whopping long way..

In one breath, one word for your blog " Excellent"

Anonymous said...

blogs are ok,but i need to keep a dictionary with me everytime I read your blogs(simple english rox!!) !! the pics u use are supposedly being modified on photoshop .. they look nice.. but i think most of your pictures lose their originality this way.. m sure if you try to be more simple and subtle , you would go a long way!!
