Moonchild

Because I am just a moon And among you, Are many stars Shinning far brighter than I ever could In the midst of the brightest one I fall And stay away Until she leaves again Then I creep up with Rest… She even shines her light on me. What I did I do to deserveContinue reading “Moonchild”

Emotion is not meant to feel like war

words deployed during the hardest of times, when butterflies and tongue ties wouldn’t allow me to let you know how I feel… they don’t even bother to last long enough to form a sentence.

Pursuit

Fully aware that you pursue me in only in draped skies- Because I am born of light. When your own darkness consumes you And you don’t have the desire to be devoured anymore You knock on my door And like the fool that I am- I open With arms wide open And a mind filledContinue reading “Pursuit”

A Mile; In Suicidal Shoes

you’re not a bad person for the way you kill your sadness… Each pill dissolving on your tongue, the way you wished your pain would. But pain is not like people, you can’t just talk it away, And people aren’t simple, you cannot force them to stay. 99 pills at once, Like problems shoved down yourContinue reading “A Mile; In Suicidal Shoes”

I am not desperate for love

I am not desperate for love, I just want unconditional love to find me. And until such a time I won’t be in pursuit of lust or infatuation to merely pass time I will give, me All of me And be engulfed in my Lord’s presence, And the presence of the woman he has destinedContinue reading “I am not desperate for love”

For Sale

I consciously placed a sale tag on a non-discountable good. The one timeless peice, People would merely walk in and admire, Was on sale. Aware, But based on pure frustration,  I wanted it to go. Those who walked in To purely admire it, Were in disbelief Those who had never seen it before, knew itContinue reading “For Sale”

Validation

I see girls switching on their cameras, stripping off their morals, in search for validation; in the form of 1000 likes. I’ve seen and heard them say and do things, in spite of what they promised, their 8 year old self. In the wee hours of the morning, you can see teardrops seep from underneathContinue reading “Validation”

Dear Destroyer

You took a huge part of me & ran away, When were you planning on telling me? In your head, I was just a phase. You should have fucking told me.   The only reason I don’t let people in, Is because I hate how they always up and leave. No goodbyes, Just up andContinue reading “Dear Destroyer”

Stranger

I don’t know why I’m writing this, But it kinda feels good… I know you’re somewhere out there  Probably reading this… I’m assuming you’re a Stranger  Who probably knows nothing about me Because for long, those closest to me didnt even know I write poetry.  So any judgments you make of me Will be basedContinue reading “Stranger”

Sober

Soon as the liquor dissolves on my tongue, I am unable to control myself. I only want you. Like you are the only thing buried at the bottom of a bottle. I’m too far from sober to want you in any other way. In the sea of alcohol, It is only you that I remember clearly.Continue reading “Sober”

Skin

He’s a real awful person For bringing her to tears, For how her skin wraps around her soul. She tells me how she thanked you, For never being there. Your absence forced her to find her own way. It’s amazing how unstoppable a woman becomes, After she is comfortable in her own skin.

Pain demands to be felt…

There is nothing worse than being surrounded by people and still feeling extremely lonely. Because nobody hears your demons when they slowly plow at your soul. Everyone is caught up in their own lives, feeding the monster that have engulfed their soul. I’ve been lingering around the city with unmet emotions for the longest time.Continue reading “Pain demands to be felt…”

Leaving this in the past…

I remember when you meant nothing to me. We would talk for hours, but I was barely aware of your existence. I will never forget how passion filled kisses changed all that. You shifted a lot of things inside of me, but my tide remained still. The more I repressed on the surface, the more youContinue reading “Leaving this in the past…”

Mrs Blue Black Purple

She looks at me through blue, black and purple.  Heavy rings around her eyes. No ring on her finger. Mentally enslaved. Temporary bruises beneath her clothing. Permanent scaring underneath her skin.  The colours of her pain have substituted her friends. He left her to choke. She can no longer see his face. She seems toContinue reading “Mrs Blue Black Purple”

Crutch

I loved you, when you were most broken. Prayed every night, that you would be healed as sunrise awakens, But every day, you would awaken, With more and more breathes taken. I see how pain radiates through your smile. Knowing that your feet won’t walk a mile, without a crutch. Eyes oblivious, to what wasContinue reading “Crutch”
