I’ve been too scared to articulate my pain, I realized that I’ve literally scratched various surfaces in the hopes of finding solace, only to drown my thoughts in confusion.
“There are plenty more fish in the sea” is a good thing to say to a child whose goldfish just died. Not to someone who thinks they just lost the love of their life.
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”
Because a shoulder to lean is so much better than a chaotic tongue; eager to fix things, rather than hold a person who’s breaking with every breath, just praying to be held together.
As you feed it apologies which are not meant to be said and lust to men who are not worthy; men who do not require refuge but seek it for the sake of curiosity; seeking asylum in sacred parts of your body.
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”
I don’t want to be constantly reminded that my skin is your least favourite colour
I came across this piece just now and I was completely unaware that I wrote it, until I was half way through. In those seconds, it dawned on me how unbelievablely easy it was for me to write about topics I had absolutely no idea of. Now, that I’m learning to be aware ofContinue reading “Throwback “
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 want you to wrap me in your arms, But I’m scared that I’m too broken for you to hold. – Kamogelo Mopai
I love how it gives you a break from certain pain But others still find a way to creep up in your nightmares.
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”
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”
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”
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”
“the first lullaby some kids ever hear are the drops of blood that urge your mother to sing to your father’s fist because he hits the notes out of her lungs all too well.” — m.m.
I’m a passionate being. Without passion, You’ll find my lifeless body roaming the earth, Carrying out mandatory tasks To merely keep me alive.
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”
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.
He was a lonely man. I could tell by the way he wanted me all to himself. He held me, Like he held hope. But his eyes were wondering somewhere else. He is stuck. And I am unable to move. Both entangled in false hope. I need him to be somebody. He is too stuckContinue reading “Lonely Man”
The year has barely began But I already have secrets I’m planning on keeping Secrets about people who have never been a part of my everyday life But have a huge part of me The type of secrets that do not allow me to make homes of people For my sanity and safety The sunContinue reading “Secrets”
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…”
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…”
“I have grown to understand that I’m difficult to love, not because I’m broken, but because I’m whole. I don’t give guys the luxury of loving me in parts. I love all of me whole heartedly, so it becomes difficult for a guy to squeeze through my insecurities to fill a void he might thinkContinue reading
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”
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”

You beg and plead. I even have you on your knees But that won’t change my mind. She needs to know EVERYTHING!! You get angry. A volcano of emotions explode all over your body. Trying to scare me with your Hulk like anger. Baby you wouldn’t even harm a fly. What…
