Dreaded "D"

I didn't want to give away my life to drugs. I had seen how marijuana had consumed the love of my life. There was a choke in my throat when I thought of Faraz now. His sharp yet tender brown eyes that ended up as darkened and laden with heavy eyelids, always covered in tiredness.
I remember the cigarette burns he gave me. I remember all the times he violently made love with me, leaving me with scars all over. It was as if my body was his source of revenge. I still loved him then. Painful, however it may be.
"You'll always be my hero, even though you've lost your mind." Sigh.
Not all love stories are happy. I ended up losing Faraz. My Faraz now had beer in veins, smoke in his eyes and puked disgust. He in fact, was not mine at all.
I stood next to the window that was once our spot of cuddling and long conversations. There wasn't any Faraz to cuddle up or converse with him any more.
There wasn't much purpose left. I had no where to 'belong' and I only bit my lip and shed a tear.


  1. OK This is not related to the article.

    But for some reason when you added the name Faraz I thought "Becharay Faraz ko pehle SMS ke zariye badnaam kiya jaata tha aur yahan bhi..."

    And the background is awesome @_@

    And The Article: very well written . Well done.

    Keep writing.

  2. P.S: I suggest that you Stretch The Banner In Width - NEarly Double the Width. It'll look better. I think Blogger uses 900Px or 1000Px in width.

  3. You should get an award for making the funniest comments, Mangiyal !
    And that was superfast.
    And I don't know about this Faraz who got insulted through SMSs. Kaun bechaara hai? And yea vaala Faraz bahut special tha yaar. Its just a story. :)
    Yes, have to work on the header.

  4. you should get an award for extreme awesomeness love.. once when ithink m done with the awesomeness more comes up to beat it! uf remember the proposal right? hahah..ok i wont irritate u like i always do..bas, i dont want this to be about who i think it is abt..even if it is..drugs are unfortunate.. most addictions suck..but well, its abt addictions u know..they grip u so fucking tightly tht its too fucking tough to get out.. ultimately leads to ur own loss ! and u put it up brilliantly!
    this picture of urs however compels me to say WHHHYY SO SERIOUSSS :P
    and ur awesome fraaand :D

  5. If You Called Me Mangiyal one more time I'll Roll on the floor and jump from the 5th floor - even though my house has only4 floor but I will just jump from whichever floor came first.

    And Ahmad Faraz is a Poet. One of the greatest modern Urdu poets.


  6. Also The Unclicked links in this layout are in black and the background of widgets is also Black so You can't see the links. The |Burst| one looks like there are numbers bursting from the bottom :P

  7. hahaahahaha! why so serious indeed. ^this guy makes funny comments.:D

  8. Okay stop flooding my comments, you two or Mangiyal I will start calling you Mangiyal again and Tariq you're going to have it in person very soon. And I changed the link colors. Now LET SOMEONE ELSE COMMENT!

  9. "Daniyal's Special Emotional Atyachar Start =

    OK :[ I hate you. I am going to cry in a corner may be eat some Pizza and drink some coke :[

  10. This is good stuff...left me wanting for more :)

  11. This was beautifully poignant.

  12. Posts like these should come with screaming headers that they are nothing but fiction......It felt so damn real,I almost wished if I could tear into this reality through my laptop screen,go back into time,and prevent Faraz from giving into drugs in the first place....... U're good!!!!!!Damn soooooper goood....

  13. @ Daniyal,
    Hahahahaha. Chill bro. I love you bro. I won't call that-guy-Mangiyal Mangiyal anymore. :D
    and I want some peeeza. I'm having chicken sandwich right now though. Bliss.

    @ Aliza,
    Hello and welcome here. :)
    Thank you.

    @ Siddhartha,
    Eh .. I wish! This is just one sad-dead-end. Next story is after Faraz and I reincarnate. -.-

  14. @ Soumya,
    Hey. Thanks and welcome here.
    I just left a comment on your blog. Its good an amazing template.

    @ Rahul,
    Your comment made me ecstatic! That is JUST the kind of pounding feeling I want a reader to feel, buddy ! And its a reality-inspired fiction if i can call it that. Be glad its not fiction, I'd hate to be in the place of the protagonist. Won't anyone else? :(
    And WELCOME HERE! and thanks for the comment and follow-up.
