NOWHERE TO GO (A Poem)

NOWHERE TO GO
(a poem)
By AMAN MITTAL

Abandoned the house
I use to live
As loved ones are gone
A long time before,

Abandoned the road
I use to walk
Took me to places
I could never thought,

Abandoned the body
I use to dwell
For the face became unknown
And the body rotted,

Still I wonder
Deeply concerned
Where will I go now?

DARK HOUSE (A Poem)

Dark House

a poem 

by Aman Mittal

A  big dark house

I  made it myself

Brick by brick

From a corner to top

Hollow from inside

Narrow by side

Without an attic

Roof is flat

But a big cellar

At the bottom

Locked and shut

Connected with tunnels

Marrow and shallow

Left incomplete

To banish the escape

Not a soul to dwell

But to consist

Only my dead thoughts.

THE HANGMAN (A poem)

The Hangman

a poem

by Aman Mittal

By the roots of his hair

Some God got hold of him

Abducted by His Strength

Felt like a prophet of a desert.

Nights are like snapshots

Out of sight

Like a lizard’s eyelid.

And the bald white days

Shade away

Behind the oaks.

While being pinned on a tree

The man ask god

If you were me, What would you do?

The god replies

If I were you, I would do what you did.

THE DEVIL’S DISCIPLE: A REVIEW

The Devil’s Disciple

The Devil’s Disciple was written in 1896-97 by G. Bernard Shaw. The play occurs in the town of Websterbridge, New Hampshire, in 1777 during the American Revolution. The play is written in a way in which each act ends in a cliff-hanging affair. The hero acts out of unselfish idealism. Otherwise all other characters are significant and make the play a melodrama with a difference. The court-martial scene is one of the funniest scene of its kind in dramatic literature. It revolves around a General whose witty sarcasm is classy and sophisticatedly pleasing. Shaw never losses an opportunity to attack the needless destruction of war and to make of military pomp and circumstance. As I said earlier, it is a melodrama but with a difference. To know the difference, you have to read it!

BOOK REVIEW: SEEN READING

Seen Reading

Seen Reading by Julie Wilson

Why I read this book? I like the idea it expresses, a bit, but I liked the cover most. It is an exceptional work, exceptional and a great concept. The concept of sightseeing of readers might be creepy to some, but it’s an idea and curiosity of the author to look around and see what others are reading. Imagine yourself, and tell me you would like to do that too. The book is a collection micro-fictions and brief descriptions of people the author has glanced reading in public. Each story in its brevity is able to capture a scene, a character, and her feelings in a remarkably short space. You might be disappointed as it goes on giving the descriptions, but it’s a very good way to indulge yourself in new books. You can try new books by snooping yourself. The range of featured books is large and fascinating. Some of them, you might have read. I picked this neat little book as a random, and I guess I am satisfied with the concept of the book.

BOOK REVIEW: SMOKE

SMOKE

Smoke: A Novella

I finished this book today. There is no doubt that it is a hard read if you’re a sensitive person. I mean to say it features Scottish gangland brutality, often to the young or to women, and there are scenes of dog-fighting. It’s not a fun read. However, it depends on what you want from your reading. It was quite a new way of fiction for me. This book was no delight for me, but it might turn out for you. I have not experienced with the author’s other works and I feel reluctant to judge him by this novella. I won’t be spoiler as it’s a short read. I would still recommend this in case you’re interested in enjoying some new author or in reading this specific genre, please go ahead and give it a try.
