Who were you before they broke your heart?

Zaahid had an icy exterior, calm like an ocean; the demons within him were soaring icebergs with mighty strength and grandeur.
Maira was the beautiful love song on a bright summer day, who could always waltz with the ugliest of his demons.
Zaahid was the north star of Maira's moonless nights.
Time and destiny were never in their favour and despite the passionate love that blossomed between them they parted, time and again.
May fate turns in their favour for one last time and may they create a love story foretold by one and all.

I would like to extend my thanks to the sources on the internet that have helped me shape the book in its present form. The writers of Instagram, Pinterest's literature pins, Tumblr's book blogs and Facebook's feeds have helped me immensely. In the end, I would like to thank poets on Instagram that have moved me completely and whose work I have used to add more meaning to mine.

This is a first draft and might include many errors, please try to overlook all those. I will try to edit as much as possible as time allows.
Lastly, thank you for choosing to read Delicious Ambiguity. I have poured my heart and soul in this book and I hope it keeps you (or is keeping you) warm and safe, something to immerse into when the nights get too dark and the world gets too loud. I hope it gives you something that you keep with yourself forever.

My mummy and papa, who taught me about dreams and how to catch them.
Unhealed wounds get wounded with time again and again and the cut gets deeper and deeper.
