Trepidations

It takes time to erase the tawdriness from the stories

Perceive each anecdotal piece from many other angles

Sometimes, one has to work beyond time and even forgetting about it

To make the stories perceptive for them to appeal to the senses

Coarse edges smoothen from the constant friction with life

There are certain advantages of taking a stand over the wilful coercions

Before constructing the vile narratives and infiltrating reader’s mind

With an undesirable intensity that triggers ceaseless concussions
