I look for you in the hidden dustiest corners of a colorless life. And when I don’t find you there, I die a little more; one breath, one heartbeat at a time… I make my way through life like a blind…

F.K. Jadoon

F.K. Jadoon is a girl who likes to dream and her dream is to become a recognised writer someday. She has recently done her Honours in English Literature. She's an avid reader of literature and is most likely to be found with her nose in one book or another or just writing away in her little diary which is always kept close to her heart. In a society where creative writing is mostly not considered a serious enough field, she has battled her way through a fair amount of grumbling, disappointment and being taken lightly. And yet, she has never let her inner fire die as she keeps on pouring the gasoline of passion and determination on the dying embers of her inner voice. She has succeeded so far and hopes to do so in future.

Natasha Alexander

Writer, always Wife and Mother first. Perfect is overrated, I am flawed and yet loved. Now that I don’t chase perfection, I can chase my dreams. I have completed a "Write a Novel" course in 2015 through S.A. Writers’ College and passed with a distinction. I also completed the Copy-Editing and Proof-reading course through them in March 2016. My first Manuscript of 60 000 words has been written and currently seeking a publisher. I have been writing poetry since I was 14 and the reason/inspiration behind all my writing is a stand against women abuse. It is a cause that I hold close to heart. Something that started as an outlet for feelings too ghastly to speak about has turned into my passion.

Unachievable

Unachievable

so many words remain unspoken, so many desires remain unexpressed, so many prayers remain unanswered, unheard… only regret remains… only tears and sorrow… loss and agony; of the “unachievable”… only emptiness resides inside hollow eyes and soul-less bodies no beating heart,…

My Addiction

My Addiction

You are my addiction, so sweet and tempting, like the aroma of my favorite meal, that I cannot resist, or taste. My path to self-destruction. Like an alcoholic doomed to die, yet, he continues on drinking, knowing that it’s death in…
