What I realised after all the hurt passed… Was that I was painfully blinded with your accusations. Each day became a denial mainly because of fear. This second winter froze our hearts; the loss had made it stand still. I admit I was lost but I still see tomorrow. It was mainly the reason why I cried. I waited for your words, but you remained mute. I drowned in the pain of watching loneliness rain down on you. It’s not that we didn’t understand, it was actually because we did. I told myself to be [...]

Unthink

2017-04-15T12:54:33+00:00 April 28th, 2017|

Unthink… On this stage, Listen to the sound of the pouring rain; Like wishes falling down from nowhere; Falling in split seconds; Hitting the ground, Hard. Some, disappearing into thin air; Wishes, Hopes, Dreams… Intertwined into nothing but thoughts. Thoughts we held tight onto; For strength, for dear life. But we can’t grasp rain. We can’t hold onto these thoughts. Even if we think we do, It could only ever drench us. At times, it could even drown us… Leave us cold with the coldness of lost ho [...]

Henna Tattoo

The floating petals are breathtaking... Sounds that doesn't even reach the bathtub, Along with the tears, its reality had passed. They sank into the midst of the bubbles; as "goodbye" waver the mixed colours of the water. At night, when the moon sleeps, when there are no stars; when the flower falls into dreams that bring it closer to tomorrow; if it wishes to bloom, I would say, even remaining as a bud is fine. The mirage, where butterflies dance, holds a secret; A secret so distant, almost fai [...]

Waiting

2017-04-15T12:53:31+00:00 April 7th, 2017|

It's like watching the sunset. The beauty lay on the painted clouds in the sky; slowly changing as the velvets wash out the amber coloured scene, as time slowly does its work of changing the day into night. You know what you're there for; waiting for how it all ends. But the fundamental, most oppressive fear is when it all leads to nothing, and you're caught in a timeless apathy. Now let me tell you there's no miracle. Things are meant to be left unsure. Nobody knows his destiny, till he's there [...]

Coffee Shop

2017-08-27T22:26:53+00:00 March 31st, 2017|

I never understood as to how the coffee and papers in front of you, All cluttered on the table could ever be so interesting. What has the world done to you that you had to be this way? You said… Girls just need to sit down and be pretty. Well, I think I am pretty enough. And… I’m sitting here. If it was that easy… Why do I feel so helpless right now? The pouring rain soothes my senses, But no… That didn’t help. I’m drowning in my own tears. I know they never show, but I also know you could see t [...]

Moon Flower

2017-04-15T12:53:09+00:00 March 24th, 2017|

Above all else… And of the celestial bodies in the heavens above; I bloom for you, I wilt for you --- You are the one I LOVE. I never asked for anything; Just for your company. And I stood watch nocturnally Praying for you to see. The cloudless skies don’t woo me, Or the stars that glow so bright… For you are, to me the Brightness, In my darkest nights. I sing to you, wish you could hear, My Sonnet in the air. You barely ever moved… nor talk, As if I wasn’t there. You sat ever so mysteriously; I [...]

Mad about you…

2017-04-15T12:52:48+00:00 March 17th, 2017|

I know how you feel. Don’t think I don’t. I don’t have to see you to know what is going on. You and I, We are trapped... In a world that began in tears, overflowing like a river; and covered with fears. Don’t think I’m not strong… Is there another way to protect you? Don’t think I've lost hope; Because with you… It's all I have. Maybe I am selfish, but maybe I’m already complete. Broken but complete... And with wounds that would never heal; I'll gladly walk on all OUR pains and sorrow. Because w [...]

Tired

2017-04-21T13:26:48+00:00 March 3rd, 2017|

Tired. We've all been there; the kind of fatigue where your body just fails you... But it's not because you are all worked out; Or that you lacked sleep; Or you missed breakfast today. No. It's just the sudden failure of that part of your brain that contributes to motion. You can't move a muscle. Just a couple of winks, one after the other. A different kind of numb, not from pain. There is no more pain. Pain... What is it? It's like it never even existed. After the last few months, you asked you [...]

He’s the One

2017-04-15T12:51:55+00:00 February 24th, 2017|

Sometimes, You feel... The first time You saw his smile; And everything changed, Mattered. At other times, You feel... The first time You went out with him; And things just happened, Mattered. Most of the time, You feel... The first time You and he, kissed; And made love, Mattered. There was no time, You felt... The first time You and him fought; And made up, Mattered. At often times, You felt... The first time You doubted him; And both struggled, Mattered. All of the time, You felt... The first [...]

Insomnia

2017-04-15T12:51:36+00:00 February 17th, 2017|

Always blue. Your shirt matches your eyes. The feeling of it, calming like the skies. In silent awe, I watched as you put on hair-gel. You smiled cause you can tell; Tonight, we won't sleep again. Always fast. We drove the usual winding roads, past cities on the highway, we didn't mind the cold. In silent calm, Warmth enveloped our love's strength While we're sat at arm's length. Tonight, we will be awake for a journey. Always a secret; The woods was our friend. Under the foliage, memories made [...]

Tree Tops

2017-04-15T12:51:21+00:00 February 10th, 2017|

Under the foliage, evergreen... A love story unfolded. A secret marriage, unseen... The future molded. In a royal carriage, The queen... Smiled. Lo' behold! The king's baggage, Had been... One, unforetold. Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah! Three cheers, For love and fairytales. Let's thus, begin.   [...]

Look Ma’, No Booze

2017-04-15T12:51:06+00:00 February 3rd, 2017|

Look Ma', no booze. ... and I don't even know why I try. This pen is no longer bleeding. I have none left of any strong feelings. Sober and content. I'll try to be eloquent... Nothing, and I mean... nothing is storming inside of my head. Look Ma', no booze. ... I swear and no, I'm not gonna lie. The tremors had left me broken. No words had ever left spoken. Bliss in nil. Useless but say I will. Nothing, and I mean... nothing is still beating from this heart. Look Ma', no booze. ... with this wri [...]
