OPS

So much of my heart is in this book! All that was sad and sublime, beautiful and breaking…
If you want to dive into another’s mind to better explore your own, this is the book for you.

Our Particular Shadows is a book of micro-fiction containing 7 stories told from close first person, which explore a gamut of emotions and situations.

To learn more, read the blurb below:

What is it that haunts you? What is your most intransigent fear? What is your stubborn trigger?
These are shadows. Your particular shadows.
The protagonists of Our Particular Shadows wrestle with their shadows, which could very well be your very shadow. There is no race, no gender, no nationality, no caste to distract you in this reading experience. Just the pure human experience of being and feeling and hurting and seeking…
The seven stories (micro-fiction) of Our Particular Shadows, for all their poetry, evoke devastatingly intense raw emotions and leave you with a spirit that has in some measure cried out its lingering shadows. Your longing for connection, your promise of joy to yourself, your ever-evolving relationship with your ‘magician’, your absolute obsession with The One, even if they are your poison, the questions you ask each other after weathering devastation, the way you would nearly shoot yourself to keep yourself and your loved ones safe, your quest for quiet and satisfaction. You’ll find it all here.

Behind The Light, Beyond The Dark

What Secrets Does Radiance Hide By Radhika Mukherjee

What Secrets Does Radiance Hide By Radhika Mukherjee

Today I have no words but those arranged before.

Today darkness crawls into the crevasses of me,

Today I wish for a different me,

One not so wounded, one not me!

 

What right has the light to entice?

What broken vision of perfection it peddles so unashamed?

What utter lie will ‘normal’ next tell?

Your healing, it fails—

 

Your promises, they fail.

Your bond frays.

Your words are charred wool.

There is no sense left in our electricity.

 

When you slip into the void,

When you rip open to the dark,

When blood pools in your hollows,

Is it not an inevitable relief?

 

I wander in waste,

I shout out in haste,

I cry when I could laugh!

And reach out, still I reach out—

When….


When we hurtle through life so—

Unsoft.

Unsound.

Joy Beckoning.

Despoiled – sometimes.

And away a feather.

Tender bright.

On the sunset that never was.


—  I resound without meaning.

Lost in shade.

Through all the flickering lights

The blaze glories.

The red and yellow streaks of fire

—  My last present.

Me, do I bequeath to you?

The night-time beckons.

When are we truly alive you and I?

Where?

But still it calls.

Still.

Writing Thought – 21/08/2010


You can’t be a writer by only being boxed-up in a room. Though solitude is important for the process of fruition. You need to be in the world as well — experience the world. This adds flavour, turns thoughts in interesting directions and even plants the seeds of ideas in the mind. Positive Inception!
