I smoked you out of my system. Your ashes are the only remains. I choke on them when I breathe your air, I choke on them when I dance in the rains. I smoked you out of every memory, A whole white cloud, it gracefully disappears, The flames burnt in me for long, But with … Continue reading Smoked You Out
My mind clogged with memories My heart weighed down by emotions Lips twitching from smiles to trembling tears, So much had changed, so much lost, so much gained. New starts are always bright. Things always start happy. The day always starts when the sun shines on us. Everything ends with darkness though. Friendships, love, … Continue reading Cruising the Sea Of Nostalgia!
That different girl I used to be, The dead corpse inside of me, That past lost in the blood, The moments in my eyes, a flood. I still go back to those days, I still tread in the darks of that place, I still see a glint of faint light, But never see it enough, … Continue reading Slaughtered Past
What is so enticing about darkness? Why do we run into the shadows? Are we swept off our feet by the melancholy? Or do we crave the still and silent misery? Is it true, with our hearts, the pain ends? Or is there a magic spell to stop our sorrows? Will we get out … Continue reading A Questionnaire For The Sad
This post is a generalized one. It is fair for all to have an opinion about it, although, it would help if they were not conveyed, except if they empowering or optimistic. otherwise, they might defeat the purpose of the post itself. Tread with caution. Yeah, I am depressed. And I am not ashamed! … Continue reading Stigma!
She was as pale as a blank page, Waiting for words to be written, She was waiting to be colored, She was an empty glass of magic. She was all drained and dry. Her skin, peeled off white, fell away, Her colors left her a shade lighter, Every morning. She woke up every day, Like … Continue reading Warriors Need Rescuing Too!
It’s all in your head! So what exactly is in my head? A complete analysis-cum-confession that I am crazy. Yes, self-diagnosed with a mental illness that probably no one else gives a damn about! I cry more. I get very angry. Uncontrollably and monstrously. I roar in anger, I get tremors in my body and … Continue reading It’s all in your head!
I’m proud to be one of us!❤
Happy to present you another collaboration we created and this time the topic was Zigyasa’s choice: very excited our art-sister could rejoin us. Sarah stepped in for John again, thanks dear! and last but definitely not least: the lovely Jyotee, our guest-artist at this collab.
In the Netherlands we have a quote “Spreken is zilver, zwijgen is goud”, translated it is: “Speaking is silver, silence is golden”. Yes, there are times you should think twice before you speak and the way you talk to someone, is also something to think about. However,
I strongly believe – and I am certain The Strix does too – your voices are worthy to be heard!
One of the best ways to speak up, to communicate, to connect is via art: Poetry, Music, Stories, Thoughts, Paints, Sketches, et cetera.
Enjoy the voices of The Strix through our art…

Their legs hung over the edge of the cliff, teasing each other, giggling and throwing back their heads in laughter, the air cleansing their souls, and the echoes ringing in their ears, it was all so pure. The birds were about to fly back to their nests, the air had become cooler, and the clouds … Continue reading Silence
