Lily

On a dark night, in the middle of the woods Lily found herself lost. She had no idea how she got there. It was a lifeless forest it seemed as there was absolute silent. No sound. Then suddenly a shrill chirp of a bird rings in her ears. It was a beautiful bird. She had…

02:00 am

I’ve spent way too much time on thinking about doing things rather than doing them. Too much time is wasted on distracting myself and pretending to be fine. “Pain demans to be felt.” Here I am, 2 am in my room feeling the pain. It hurts but the hurting is a part of my life…

Gatekeeper

I have so much to show you,Inside my carousel- like mind.Only way to see through,Lies in my wondering eyes.But I cannot let you in,For there’s a gatekeeper you don’t want to meet.He who controls my dusk and dawn,You’ll never be free.I’ll never be free. (The gatekeeper doesn’t like visitors)

In The Month Of Dying

One night in the month of April, she dreamed of stars coming to life. She played with them and fell asleep- so peaceful it was after a long while. Her heart felt the same uneasiness when she woke up from her dream, the same feeling of emptiness in her chest. How she wished for that…

The Fall

October is a change,Stepping towards a cool breeze;A sweet, calm inception.Like fine winds on a cloudy day,Underneath the shadow of a tree.Warmth of the sun bathing you,From among the leaves fluttering;Making the most peaceful sounds.And then they fall so elegantly;You pick one up and keep,The Fall with you forever.

Be My Poem

Be my poem,I’ll write you in my favourite colours.Tell you the tale of my coldest summer,Visit the marquee of a homesick lover.Relive the darkest tunes of a verse,About the pitch black shades of the world.A tour to my oldest battle fronts,Parts of me waiting to be discovered.The grave I dug with my only shovel,Greet the…

My Favourite Shoes

If I were to say this, you’d probably think that I’m crazy but it’s about a pair of shoes that I miss wearing. I still have them but I don’t wear them. They’re kept in some place where I can’t easily see them. It’s been two years since I last wore them. It’s such a…

Imperfections

Tired eyes,Fraudulent smile; Scarred wrists,Fierce fists; Messy hair,Lungs with no air; Toxic mind,Half blinded sight; Restless heart,Aged stretch marks; Windy shore,A beautiful soul.

Mortal Gold

These summer nights feel so long,Daylighht freezes my insides.If I don’t know where I belong,How can I truly be mine? There was this line of shimmering grey,Strong winds pushed me so close to it.My breath was it’s stimulus, it widened away;Huge waves and fires in it that lit. The other side seems all dark and…

My Only Prayer

Just like a caged birdLooks at the sky,Hoping the chirping she heardWill make her free to fly,I look at the moon sometimesWishing to say my last goodbyes. You’re not flawless, God I know,The wirings in my head are all mental.These faces and smiles are just for show,You can’t expect a square to fit in a…
