The Roads

Another day, please - a chance to travel, From my mind, release - as thoughts unravel, To the beat of my heart, sing along, We’ve been apart, for far too long, So with my melody, a wistful smile, As I, share a memory, 'cause it’s been a while, And I, do not know, where I’m... Continue Reading →

When you need help.

When your room is as disorganized as your mind, When motivation to do anything (even your hobbies!) you just cannot find, When to the outside world, you have gone blind, When social interaction is a big no way, When you just cannot figure out the words to say, When they would not understand you anyway,...

Purity

I keep myself busy to hear no sound, To cut myself off from the world around, For the thoughts in my head are no rosy pink, I cannot get in my bed a cozy wink. Try as I might just to see the stars, In my own mind I reside behind bars, Clouded by fear... Continue Reading →

Hollow

Surrounded by people, I never felt more alone. But now I'm all by myself, And I finally feel at home. Sometimes into your life people enter, Who are never meant to be. Those superficial relationships with no center, Are quite unhealthy. We swallow our pride, To impress our peers. We take everything in stride, And... Continue Reading →

Catalyst

Gather ye who wish to hear, The remarkable tale of a missing tear, That slipped so discretely from thy corner, Of each tormented morose mourner, That wails for the absence of thy freedom, For masked is the light of the guiding beacon, By the pillars of thy deceptive society, Whither education has been established on...

Into The Woods

By day, a brisk walk through the park, By night, run from fear of the eerie dark, A meeting with a stranger, a pleasant surprise, But continued forth is lurking your demise, Flee back to the terrifying rotting bark. Take a chance - explore the woods unknown, Ignore the voice within that won’t condone, Be... Continue Reading →

I wonder what I am to you…

I wonder what I am to you, Even you, the one reading this poem, too. Am I to you what you are to me? Through distance and time and warped memory? If I were but a mere shadow, And if we were to dance in the meadow, You would be the bigger person in the... Continue Reading →

Frenzy

Lonely lunches in the corridors Stuffing our faces to save the time To halt your progress to heaven’s door We attempt to restore you to your prime In crowded hospitals the anxious patients Closely observe the seconds tick by Oh these wards, they know no patience Fear resides in every eye I promise that we...

I miss you

He was precious, he was mine He gave me love all the time Cuddles, snuggles oh so sweet Gazing at me for a treat Acrobatics like monkey bars He would always reach for the stars A place by now he would’ve returned to Without him I don’t know what to do Hammy, I will always... Continue Reading →

Distractions

All the roads lead back to Rome And all my thoughts take me back home A place that I’ve defined in you Where I return when feeling blue I love my work ‘cause it keeps me Occupied and quite busy For when I’m left alone and idle My mind tends to race and travel I... Continue Reading →

Daydreams

In your eyes resides an unfathomable depth, That I endeavor to explore. The others don’t enlighten me, the exoteric folk, My infallible interest they fail to invoke. A rarity like you is a diamond to treasure, I would love to know you, would you give me the pleasure? Together we would visit places untraveled, Outdoors... Continue Reading →

like a rose

Beautiful post!

Express the Gabbiness

underneath the delicacy

lies the strength

the power contained

with every blossom

behind the beauty

hides the abuse

the sadness suppressed

after every trim

above it all

comes the love

the happiness yield

from sacrifice

❤ ❤ ❤

Thanks for reading,

Dark Chocolate

The truth hurts but it’s bittersweet For it’s better to know, than to be cheat Imagine all the lies you believed And on the surface the people who agreed While inside they’d be mocking you And you’d never know what’s really true I’ve discovered that those too sweet Would really give you diabetes But dark...

My heart broke today

I don't even know how to start writing this.. well, some of you may know this, but I'm a doctor now. I just started working as an intern less than two weeks ago. Today was my first day at the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). "Neonate" is the term for a newborn baby, who is... Continue Reading →

Forgive, don’t forget.

My motto was “forgive and forget” But Mother told me “forgive, don’t forget” For what’s forgotten shall be repeated, Of happiness you would be cheated, Remember all, remember true, From now on wary shall be you, When you look around at the sight Of the crowds, you get a fright, From now on out, don’t...

What do I write when I feel as if,My reason for writing has disappeared?The community here is truly a gift,They appreciate each other, even if weird.I used to write about my lost love,And the heartbreak that did follow.But I’ve been granted freedom from above,That in that sadness not to wallow.I moved on so finally,My mind...

Replaced

Blessed I am to be fortunate enough to feel the sunlight on my skin, My stirring emotions come to a halt as I feel calm from within. I lay down on the trimmed-down lawn as I look up at the sky, My muscles tense as I reminisce upon our final goodbye. Along does come the... Continue Reading →

Lost love

He saw past her peppered face, her crooked teeth, and unkempt hair. He looked beyond her four-eyed glare, And deep into her soul. He knew all her flaws by heart and loved her anyway, And he promised to cherish her every single day. That was his goal. Time grew up and so did they, their... Continue Reading →

Ethereal

Open up, please, it’s you I want to see! But you only seem to be fond of speaking of me.. I wish to travel to the inner you, And I desire to know what is really true. You’re a mystery to me, I cannot decipher, The one I crave to know, you are my fire.... Continue Reading →

Apart

The place in my heart that belongs to you, Stayed far too long, I am a fool, And now that you’re gone, I’m feeling blue, But to the outside world, I play it cool. The past years have been a rollercoaster ride, But it was worth it just to see you smile, Now new rules... Continue Reading →

Shallow

In shallow waters, you cannot find, The answers, that shall clear your mind, The depth of an abyss, which cannot be measured, Shall give you bliss, and shall be treasured, Within the darkness, seek the light, Dispel the sadness, end your plight, Be brave in the face, of dear foe fear, Walk a sweet pace,...

Whispers

Whispers crawl into my ears, Break my heart, I must be fierce, For it has been so very long, Things between us’ve gone so very wrong, Now we are strangers, you and I, And you do not look me in the eye, I do not know who you are anymore, And I know I should... Continue Reading →

Flatline

The whirring sound Of my wireless heart Is slowly fading with the night As the battery leaks Like blood stained tears Agonizing over the fight. Since you left me that day The ECG shows a flatline ‘Cause you aren’t here tonight

Chaos

In your story where you Are the protagonist, All along have you Been the antagonist?

Rediscovery

Why is it that the little ones have clearer understandings of themselves? As a child, I knew myself more than I do now. I was creative, I called myself an artist, and I was proud and satisfied.

Together Forever (Never)

He walked by me and I caught a scent, That reminded me of the time we spent, I feel you in the air I breathe, And at night I see you in my dreams. Sometimes I wonder to myself, If you were my imagination, But something so extraordinary as yourself, Could not have been my... Continue Reading →

Nostalgic Tunes

The music brings back memories, Memories of a time when you were with me, When things were not just black/white/grey, But filled with color every day. The melody that would lull me to sleep, Now has me reminiscing, oh, how I weep! And my heart becomes full with much sorrow, And as the night ends,... Continue Reading →

Cocoon

Nobody knows what lies beneath the mask, The facade of accomplished hopes and dreams, While in truth festers a rotting wound that cannot be closed. Nobody knows that beyond that thick exterior, A beautiful butterfly yearns to break free, But she’s trapped in a haunted reality. Nobody knows that if she had the chance, She... Continue Reading →

Unheard

I see the unheard voices,Crying for helpFor their eyes convey moreThan their frail vocal cordsWhose feeble vibrations are insufficient to move youTheir throaty pleas and husky laughsAre casually dismissed by you the nonchalant,The type who’s lived with no lossBut not in want for naughtFor satisfaction is a difficult skillAnd your brain chooses to ignore themTo...

Fragments

A heart filled with too much love Burst An explosion Scattered fragments Home is where the heart is... And it’s everywhere but here

Let us grow up together, Let us travel the world. Our journey on earth let us complete together, Let us together grow old. A new dimension let us discover together, As we explore the skies as departed souls. Image source

Wishful Thinking

The good boy's sweet to me, He's innocent and kind. The good boy favors me, But he's not on my mind. The bad boy looks at me, A gaze that traps me under his spell. With sharp piercing eyes boring into me, That take me straight down to hell. The good boy's perfect in every... Continue Reading →

Sleep Paralysis

All of a sudden, my eyes fluttered open I don't know what I'd been dreaming of all this time but I could see it - A dark shadow looming over me Who was that? What was that?! I tried to scream but my lips were glued shut and no sound would come out I tried... Continue Reading →

Lifesaver

Mask

Beautiful girl with an angelic face, Voice sweet as honey, walk and poise full of grace. Her laugh the sound of bells, Makes you want to join in. But she'll take you down the rails, And much trouble, you'll be in. Her perfect smile won't make you doubt her impure intentions, Until you're hanging down... Continue Reading →

Nostalgia

Today, I saw a boy who looked just like you, He and all his friends stared right back at me too, Embarrassed, I turned my gaze away, They giggled and continued to look my way, And as I walked by memory lane, I thought of all the things I did gain, I had been filled... Continue Reading →

No Longer

He's no longer the one I dream of at night. He's no longer the one I wake up with thoughts of in the morning. He's no longer the one in my consciousness, Even if he still slightly lingers in my subconsciousness. He's no longer the one who brightens my day, No longer the one who... Continue Reading →

Would she be proud?

If my younger self were to see me now, Do you think that she would be proud?

Do you think she would be happy, With the way that things have been for... Continue Reading →

The Tunnel

Enter with apprehension, Into a dark scary world. With unknown dangers ahead in retention, That you just can't ignore. Inside the tunnel, With just a small torchlight, Stumbling through, trying not to pummel, While seeking daylight. Zig-zag through a confusing black maze, Sometimes you feel as if you're in a daze. Scuttling through an anxiety-inducing... Continue Reading →

Cozy Silence

Whisper softly, for the angels are sleeping, And the demons in my head are stirring, stirring, Can you hear my racing heart beat, Against you, who in it have taken a seat? This body I possess has been occupied by, A strange sensation that is no longer shy, Creeping over, consuming me, A new persona,... Continue Reading →

Closure

Introductions to new interests and activities, Explorations to un-ventured parts of me. You showed me new possibilities, And I was flooded with dreams of what could be. A thing of the past, A mere figment of my dream-like memory. I see it was not meant to last, But you had an important role to play... Continue Reading →

Immortalized

In the meadows on That fated day, Till the dawn When you did say, That tiny fragments Of our hearts, Would stay stagnant In the fine art, Of the landscapes Of our souls, Where we escape To become whole, I realized That part of me, Crystallized In your sea, Where I swim In your eyes,...

How?

What do I do,When the thoughts in my headHave come to a standstill?How can I copeWhen my seductive bedOnly wards off the chillI feel in my peripheryBut not the one at my core?My reflections in disharmonyDaily life feels like a chore How do I sleepWith my eyes pried openBy the monsters underneath?How do I speakWhen...

Stepping stone

I do not desire to use the past, As a barricade - Thwarting my attempts at moving on, Moving forward with my life, No! I use each experience as a stepping stone, A learning curve which only ascends, And up I glide and soar, Oh, I may slip sometimes, But that does only aid my... Continue Reading →

Final boss battle

Life Currently it’s like the final boss battle of the hardest game I’ve ever played I keep making the same moves and mistakes Hoping that this time something would change Knowing full well that it won’t despite my best efforts Because I went in headstrong, too fast Thought I was smarter than I really was...

Expectations

What if what I want to be, is something other than what you want me to be? What if your perception of me, is different from the actual me? What if what I want to do, clashes with what you want me to do? Will you give me the freedom to be, the person I... Continue Reading →

Change

So..this kind of post is unusual for me but anyway, I got my hair cut today, and I have all these thoughts swimming around in my head. My hair used to fall at my waist and now it's just a couple inches below my shoulders. I feel awkward, and self conscious. People always used to... Continue Reading →

Blackout

The harsh rain hammers at your bare skin like icy glass shards of the mirror you broke as you gawked at a reflection that no longer resembles you. You wince in pain, biting your lip and holding back your tears with your dam-like eyelids that could burst any moment now, flooding the passerby’s. Soon your... Continue Reading →

Horcruxes

If horcruxes were real (and nobody had to die for it of course) If horcruxes were real, You would find me in My favorite book, It takes you to a realm, Explore every cranny, every nook, It leaves you overwhelmed.

Spirit

The sky is darkening, And the night is cold, The way your soul is blackening, No one could have foretold. On this stormy chilly night, That sends shivers up my spine, I hope and pray with all my might, That despite the chaos we will shine. Take my hand and come with me, I shall... Continue Reading →

Your Eyes

Do not look at me with those eyes, Which pierce right through my very soul, If I am correct, they shall be my demise, And in my essence they shall burn a hole. But fire itself cannot be burned, You shall merely fuel the flame, I wish towards you, I remain unturned, But alas! I... Continue Reading →

She prefers not the spotlight, In the shadows she awaits, Peeping, lurking, at the rests’ fates. She does not act on her own accord - That’s what she’ll have you think, As she smirks in the background, watching you sink. You’ll know then as it hits you, Where you went so horribly wrong, Realizations reach... Continue Reading →

A lightning bolt piercing through my heart, Is nothing compared to your electric gaze, A fiery glance, a flaming dart, Setting my very soul ablaze.

Late Night Thoughts 🌙 💭

When darkness comes knocking at my door, I turn on the lights, it won’t trouble me no more. But when the Grim Reaper comes for me, Prepared to accept him, I shall be. And into the night I will soar. For I have experienced everything I can, And when it’s my time, do not say... Continue Reading →

Goodbye, Logic

There comes a point in a girl's life where she meets a guy who drives her crazy, She knows he's no good but he makes her want to be racy. She knows there's no future but she no longer cares, All she wants to do is follow him everywhere. She knows what she's doing and... Continue Reading →

My heart is locked and I’ve thrown away the key, Oh, it’s somewhere buried deep inside of me, Layers and layers you must peel, To start comprehending what I feel, But my heart is guarded, you cannot get in, Till you break down the doors, you shall not win, You huff and you puff but...

The Innocent

The unscarred walking through the night, Blissfully and without a fright, Naive little angels they truly are, Only able to see the light, Despite having come so far.

The Orphan

Her worn out clothes reek of poverty Rat-nibbled holes present here and there Your baggy jeans are a luxury You eye her greasy unkempt hair And her antsy gait lacking energy The stench of indigence fills the air Soot stained cheeks smile apologetically But she offers you a daunting dare You listen to her curiously...

Acceptance

I run, I run, From time I feel catching up with me. It’s fun, it’s fun, Till their watchful eyes grab hold of me. A gun, a gun, Pointed at my freedom, threatening me. A ton, a ton, Of pressure on my head, there’ll be. Undone, I’m done, My crippling mind and wobbly knee. I... Continue Reading →

the ringing in my ears

This noise, this noise Like a broken radio Or static from a TV. This noise, this noise I cannot hear myself Think clearly. This noise, this noise Make it go away Or I cannot sleep.

Fallen Angel

To wish for a time machine, is but futile, To erase a memory, that is just so vile, When looked back on, to the throat bring bile, Those acts frowned upon, never again to smile. Oh how she does ruminate, on her most horrid mistake, It is but unfortunate, that she did make, Brought to... Continue Reading →

Your arrow

There are stars

Underneath a twinkling sky, Where we both lay, sipping wine, Feeling free as our souls fly, Fireworks burst when we entwine. The stars reflected in your eyes, Shine brighter than any light, Oh, this must be paradise, Creating memories tonight.

Lost

There is a fine thin line, Between right and wrong, Two faces would shine, At sound of their souls’ song, A delicate dance, Into the heart, A deadly trance, Once torn apart. Upon recollection of, The once happy memories, Which were filled with love, And are now mere sad stories, A wave of guilt washed... Continue Reading →

Electric

I love the sound of my name As it escapes your buttery lips When you say I drive you insane Your love deep into my soul rips My every fiber craving you An electric tingling in my spine I arch my back and lean into you Devouring everything that’s mine

Deception

When I look in the mirror, I often wonder, If everyone else is aware of my every blunder. A cool, composed, and confident me, Is apparently what they seem to see. But all the things they think they see, I think do not really exist in me. Do people think I do as I may,... Continue Reading →

Your smile

The salt in the air doesn’t bother me, Nor does the bittersweet aftertaste of his kiss, No, it’s your sugary smile that petrifies me, Something I fear that I would miss. The venom of the snake penetrates my skin, But all it takes is a look in your eyes, To forget every moment, every sin,... Continue Reading →

I let you go

Attempting to hold you is like trying to catch the sea, I’d only get drenched but you’d never be with me, If I tried to contain you in an enclosed jar, There’d still be a barrier, from me you would be far, So I let you go, I set you free, Away you go, away... Continue Reading →

The First Fall

When your feathers start to fall, and you think it’s the end of it all, I want you to recall, upon the First Fall. Chirping in your little nest, you had no clue what to do, But you decided to try your best, you started with what you knew. You were little then, do you... Continue Reading →

Loneliness

I pray for the heavens to hear my plea, To show me much more than what I can see, I wish to unlock the secrets held high above, And drown out the miseries of a lost love. Raised as a princess with independence, I don’t need anyone to finish my sentence, I just wish for... Continue Reading →

Small

I reside in a puddle, Around me you huddle, My small frame you long to cuddle, As your soul begins yearning to protect, Our surroundings you inspect, Past experiences you recollect, For I am a delicate little flower, Unscarred by any evil power, Forfending me to cower, Through my blind naive belief, Which provides you...

Too late

Where were you all the while, When I was chasing after you? I hardly ever saw you smile, You always assumed I knew, Of your feelings for me, Rooted deep within your heart, You thought that I could see, That it killed you to be apart. But how, when it never was Displayed on the... Continue Reading →

Betrayal

Erase the memory - Erase the pain. Erase the worry, There’s nothing to gain. Erase the thoughts of, Losing everything, Everything you love, For it all means nothing. All that you once, Thought you knew, You feel like a dunce, They weren’t true. You’ve been cheat, All this time, Your heart beat, For the wrong... Continue Reading →

Lethargic

The sun has long since wandered, Tirelessly without complaint. Not once has it ever squandered, Throughout its life it’s been a saint. If a powerful being as such daily, Could be so disciplined and dutiful, Why is it when it comes to me, I am lethargic and sorrowful?

Must I Rhyme?

My cynosure is the rhyme, So often that I transgress the write, If every beat must match in time, Am I aiming to confine the light?

Lonely Nights

Lonely nights are the writers’ friend, Pouring out thoughts till the very end.

My Strength

Dear loves, I’m sorry I don’t reveal, I just don’t want you to worry, And I’m sorry I don’t tell you how I feel, When everything seems so blurry. I am as open as can be, But not when something’s very wrong. Then I do not speak so freely, I try to show that I... Continue Reading →

Kind Souls

Quality, not quantity. Who, not how many. But I am fortunate enough to have the right who and many. The ones who genuinely care about me, The ones who put a smile on me, The ones who lend a shoulder to cry on, The ones who never would let me down, In my life they... Continue Reading →

Running out

It’s late at night. I can hear every second pass by from my bedside alarm clock like a ticking time bomb, serving as a constant reminder of the imminent implosion that is to come if I were to not effectively utilize these passing moments that easily slip through my fingers as if they were attempting... Continue Reading →

Dark

You Shrouded by darkness A veil around you Impermeable to light Me Full of light But your darkness Oh, it radiates, And it strikes through my soul But I am still Full of light And I shall dispel That which is not bright

The Wind

You appeared and disappeared with the speed of the wind, But you will forever be remembered and remain within.

Doors

The doors are closed, Locked and latched, The only key vanished, Into thin air, Where the secrets reside, The truth, The hurt, But the outside, The door outside is beautiful, Perfectly carved, or so it seems, Perfectly painted, that’s what you see, No one will know the inner me.

Drowning

Darling I’m drowning In your love But you’re the very air In my lungs Allowing me to safely float On the surface Won’t sink, I’ll swim or take a boat Just to see your face

Home

I Love the Sound of the Raindrops falling Softly on the glass Windows of my country Home as I sleep late at night Because they remind me of how Far I have come in my journey back To finding myself and mending my soul found something I wrote months ago and hadn’t posted; I’d changed... Continue Reading →

Adieu

What could I write? When the time has stood still and my heart has gone numb? How can I fight, When my ears are deaf and I am dumb? What should I do, When I am blind to my surroundings? Can I call upon you, To help me spread my wings? Like a creature of... Continue Reading →

Warrior

Forever lurking in the dark, When light arrives I’m far apart, A constant seeking for a spark, To warm up your hardened heart, Which to conquer is my goal, Mysterious, you aren’t a bore, I learned that once somebody stole, When it on your sleeve you wore. A warrior I am, in love, I’ll fight... Continue Reading →

Split

I watch as my shadows split into two, And reflect me from within. As I advance towards the light, To merge into one, my shadows begin. The singular ray of shining hope, Summons me at its integral chime. The shadows follow and disappear ...but only until the next time. Image source

Mend

Oh, my lord! ‘‘Tis my desire, As with my sword, I’ve jumped the pyre, For your followers, With eyes of gold, Who are borrowers, From the old, Of wisdom which, They love to lend, I ask the rich, My heart to mend. Image source
