Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Knock knock. Who’s there? Death.

Fire brigades.

Sirens. Smoke.

They are breaking glass.

Fire. Water. Splash. Life. Death.
Death. Fire. Splash. Water. Life.





‘I don’t want you so near me, death. I lied when I said that I liked you.’
Pass me the juice please.

  1. I guess you wrote this because of the Earthquake Hit today,Indeed sometimes Nature shows us their devastating part and we just have to be mere spectators..

    • “Indeed sometimes nature shows us their devastating part and we just have to be mere spectators..”
      Right. But this wasn’t about the Earthquake. I didn’t feel the quake, it was mainly in the remote areas of Balochistan, and like all others I too relied on the media for info.
      But yesterday night, our building was on fire. Nearly. So I was more of a spectator lately.

      • Oh that is sad to hear..BTW is everything in control now and I hope you guys are absolutely fine..🙂

        September 25, 2013 at 1:54 pm

        • Yes we’re all fine🙂 . It was just a matter of minutes, as in long minutes, but now everything is like it was before!
          (Except the furniture that burnt in a shop down there)

          September 25, 2013 at 2:33 pm

          • Oh Good to hear that and The Furniture Shop owner will also have no worries as The Shop was insured I guess and he will be getting the insured amount..🙂

            September 25, 2013 at 2:45 pm

          • Haha I don’t know about that. I have been seriously wondering about this, but I will be more like an optimist.😉

            September 25, 2013 at 2:52 pm

          • Hmm I will tell you the best way to know..Observe the Shop Owner face pretty closely,the way he is talking now and you will know…😛

            September 25, 2013 at 2:54 pm

          • 😀 Good, so I must go exploring. Or perhaps I will leave that work for those in charge😉

            September 25, 2013 at 2:57 pm

  2. So sorry to know of the fire… And glad to know that you are safe🙂

    September 25, 2013 at 7:21 pm

    • That I am.🙂
      But I failed to feel what I should’ve.

      September 25, 2013 at 9:17 pm

      • Feel what? Death?

        Only the lucky ones feel it and yet are able to tell it to the mortals🙂

        September 25, 2013 at 10:09 pm

        • That’s right. Only those too wicked, or too saintly, just too lucky.
          Ever wished you could achieve that stage?

  6. Now that’s what you call a graphic description. I wonder how you make this work with handful of words.
    Sorry about the fire though. Near death experiences make us cherish life.

    September 26, 2013 at 8:06 am

    • Thankyou so much!
      You wonder how I make it, I wonder how well you see it. Beauty lies in beholder’s eyes for sure.😉
      About the fire, I will never forget that day. Everyone but us had gathered on the roadside, just in case the flames might wrap up the entire place. Guess what I did, I wrote this blog.

    Sorry to know about the fire. Nicely written.
    I love your background. o.o

    September 27, 2013 at 9:50 pm

    • Glad you liked ‘my background’😉 and what I wrote.. Thanks!
      About the accident, I probably exaggerated by saying my building was on fire. There was this shop below which caught flames and the entire place filled up with smoke. A remarkable experience!😀

      September 27, 2013 at 9:59 pm

      • Tayyeba

        I meant your blog’s background. :p
        Oh. I am sorry to hear that. 😦

        September 28, 2013 at 3:10 pm

        • Haha I get that😉

  8. Oh My heart missed a beat reading about fire ! You are fine na ? How did that happen ? And be safe okay meri nanhi philosopher ko kuch nae hona chaye🙂 I love your words here….So less words and yet so vast meanings.

    September 29, 2013 at 11:40 pm

    • Hahah ‘nanhi philospher’: I just so love this khitaab. :p
      Yar hojata tou maza ta, though I know nhi ata shayad, but we people are the kind ke death ko bulaaty rehty haen, aur jab itni nazdeed hoti hae to kaanpne lag jaty haen!
      I am fine, so is everybody else Alhamdulillah🙂 Siwaae that 15 lac ka furniture jo nechay shop me jal gya😦😀

      Glad you liked my words. Getting such meaningful feedbacks on such random words that I use, feels great!😉

      September 29, 2013 at 11:45 pm

      • Haan sahi keh rae ho….we forget death and we don’t even bother remembering it ever…..Aagay jaa k jutay khanay pertay hain tabi aqal thikanay ati ho gi😦
        Aww It must be a huge loss for the shop owner….I am happy there was no human loss of any kind.
        Those words were not random…they had a deep meaning like you have inside you nanhi philosopher🙂 xx

        September 30, 2013 at 4:07 am

        • ‘Agay ja ke jotay khany partay haen tab aqal ati hae.’ ye jumla kaheen suna hae😉
          huge loss, yup i think so too. Aglay din sara jala hua furniture van me load ho ke gaya..
          Thank you again, for interpreting my words.🙂

          September 30, 2013 at 1:16 pm

  9. Loved the poem, it amazing what we can peel from an experience in life. Powerful words creating an image I do not wish to experience in real life. I also love the feel and look of your site.

    September 30, 2013 at 2:12 am

    • Hi! Thanks a billion for your lovely words here, I feel elated to receive such wonderful feedback from such a wonderful blogger as yourself!
      I pray that you never ever do experience such an experience, or even close.

      Glad you liked the ‘feel and look’ of RandomlyAbstract .🙂

      September 30, 2013 at 2:18 am

  10. Sad to hear about the earthquake there. Sorrt for being so late. Been busy with life.Could relate to it totally. Lost a loved one to death recently unexpectedly. It taught me about His power and will.

    October 2, 2013 at 3:11 am

    • Oh I am so sorry to know that Miss M. May Allah bless him Jannah and may his family earn sabar e jamil.
      I didn’t know somebody could relate like that, but I’ve been writing death stuff lately, in my personal blog.
      A lot of duas, and best wishes for you. And hey, you were actually missed! Really!😦

            October 2, 2013 at 2:18 pm

          • Khaer Mubaraaaaaaaaak! Cyber-world me you are the first to know😉 Ab I will post! But what an irony- we are talking of deaths,….. but well, Allah is the Supervisor! Im sorry for that death, but look kesay life me ek taraf dhoop and ek taraf chauun hoti hy…😦
            Ameen Summa ameen and JAZAKILLAH🙂🙂

  11. Reminds of “Because I could not stop for death, He kindly stopped for me; The carriage held but just ourselves and immortality.” EMILY DICKINSON Thanks visit my blog.

    • Oh! wow.
      Thanks for sharing. It will stay in my heart forever!

    this reminded me of something i read in Annie Dillard’s book “For the Time Being’ – ‘The Mahabharata says, “Of all the world’s wonders, which is the most wonderful?
    “That no man, though he sees others dying all around him, believes that he himself believes that he himself will die.”

    i guess it is our job in life to make peace and get comfortable with death.

    October 27, 2013 at 7:59 am

    • Wonderful saying.. Thank you for sharing. I think I’ll love reading that book too.

      October 27, 2013 at 9:30 pm

      • rjl2727

        yes do. it is a very beautiful book. the style of writing is very different, but the thoughts of the eternal and the minimally abstract are profound.
