This generation belongs more to the night than days. This generation finds relief in the darkness of night and keeps talking about the 3 a.m. conversations. This generation finds people more real in the midnights. This generation asserts that writers are only born out of pain, grief, and perpetual darkness. 

The Midnight Scrawls by Fatema Pocketwala is a collection of poems presented in the monochromatic fashion. Why you'd ask? Have a look at the inside pages of the book and you'll know. The

He didn't have a smartphone to keep checking
his children's pictures on social media
But he had a picture in his wallet which captured
their innocent souls

Her naked body
was a sight to devour,
But the demon himself
was afraid of her soul

He gave her white roses,
Next year, it was a bundle of yellow roses
Each year after that, he gave her
red roses,
Which lay on her grave to wither.

The book starts on a good note with beautiful musings & short poems which touches our hearts poignantly. In every aspect,

When words meet paper, emotions gain new perspectives. 'The Midnight Scrawls' by Fatema Pocketwala is an intricately written collection of poetry on multiple topics. With sorrow, happiness, love and heartbreak - this book inculcates an array of feelings under one umbrella.

War, love, betrayal, brother-sister bonds, the poet has penned down every emotion in lucid and simple verses. The poems spoke to me and they felt so real. I have found a lot of favourites among them and it is a book I would

The Midnight Scrawls was an okay poetry book.
More than that, it was a visual treat. The book is very much like an album and I loved the various shots that accompanied the poetic pieces. they were all in black and white and I think that that really enhanced and helped make the poems more impactful.
As for the topics, the pieces cover a wide range such as innocent love, family, self-discovery, depression, and mental health, gratitude, war, religion, etc. There were also other snippets of works
