Ok, so this is a long post I am going to be delivering after some time. And I know you are all wondering what happened to my long-forgotten novel updates, and I am thoroughly sorry to say I have been so busy that I have not been able to attend to my novel.
I know, I know. I could have completed it in April when I was not so busy, but the usual procrastination held in… Anyways, I did write Chapter 1 though… but that is not what this post is about.
Rather, this post is about an award I received from a wonderful blogger, a short story that I conjured up in my sleep (I wish I had really done that…), and a poem. So, buckle up, because this is going to be a long post, a rarity on my blog!

A single light illuminated the dark interior of the room. A shadow flitted across the glazed, black walls of the bank. It was barely conceivable that the figure was human, but my sharp eyesight did well to support me. The figure walked a few steps and then stopped in front of me. Then a candlelight flickered as the figure came in full sight. Our eyes bore into each other as we faced each other. For a moment, time stopped as we bore into each other, glaring like red-eyed lions. Then, drawing me out of my trance, action took place. I drew my arrow. He drew his arrow. I knocked my arrow. He knocked his arrow. I aimed. He aimed. And, then, as we both attempted to release our missiles, a piercing scream resounded in our ears. I was toppled back, down on the cold, hard tiles of the room. But, now, my eyes bore not into a rival’s stone-hard, red-scarred eyes; but, instead, into a battle-hardened, lemon-coloured eyes of a panther.
The screams in the wilderness,
The rushing of the wind in the lone ear,
The waiting of an intense
The searching for something
A skill unknown to others,
And at times,
The power that unleashes
Itself in the dreary moments.
The feeling that overtakes the mind,
Rendering it powerless.
The emotions capable of,
Killing the heart,
Making it ice-cold,
Removing the fire,
Along with it the feelings, grief, and joy.
The knowledge that saves you
In the eleventh hour.
Wondering what it is,
I wait for it to be unleashed from me.
Thanks for reading guys! Hope you enjoyed this post. Have a great day! 🙂
