Hiatus

Hello, or rather goodbye. I must take a break from Hmmm to focus on my studies now. Exams are approaching and I’ll be busy until March, so I won’t be posting for the next three months. Thank you for your support, and I hope you will wait for my poetry!!Yours, Riya🧡

Been busy and tired, this post is unworthy of being titled.

Today was one of the days where everything had to go wrong. Slapping the companies’ best client and deleting all their important files can get you fired on the spot. It doesn’t matter if you did it out of self-defense and rage, respectively, your efforts to explain yourself will be disregarded. Farwell, here’s your severance,…

Glitch

Not a single drill encoded in the ROM,Can compute my nervous energy,My anxieties I cannot discard,The system is rapidly failing.Please don’t harm my screen in condemn,Please just leave me be,My journey might end at a scrape yard,But nothing can ever fix my glitching.

Don’t indulge in their game, They lie, say its safe, You are a prey for them to maim, You are another neck to chafe, You can’t run, you can’t hide, Abused until they are satisfied, With a fist they’ll cover your heart, Then wait for you to completely fall apart, But I suppose they just…

Glance

Someone was looking at you,No, no, don’t just dismiss it!Four counts can’t be a “nothing”. Reading your favorite book,Humming your favorite song,And a fifth glance,Is not a coincidence either. Lol, don’t ask me what you should do,I am as clueless as you,On another note,You should probably ignore what I say,What if I am wrong, huh?…
