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 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,... Continue Reading →
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 →
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 →
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... Continue Reading →
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, 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 →
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 →
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 →
You’re rotting in your homeLike the roadkill on the streetYou’re mourning all aloneWith its last heartbeatThere are maggots in your brainAnd the stench of decayNow your heart you trainTo be impassive from todaySo your inner walls thickenImpermeable to the parasitesAs your heart starts to hardenGetting you through the nightsYou strengthen your frail bonesYour impenetrable rib...

In the end our love was all about the terms and conditions A breech in the imaginary contract I don’t remember signing
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 →
Salt stained pillows and tears of blood Pooling around, they start a flood Drowning people and miseries Deleting all the memories Stored on that sacred hard disk in your mind The one that others shall never find Corrupting all the files within To transcend your spirit, you begin Crashing down into your estranged bed You’re... Continue Reading →
He walked all over the broken glass pieces of her fragile heart, unaware of his bleeding bare skin marking its territory and displaying its pain - ink of blood dispersed across the canvas of stained bedsheets. Soiled sheets like soiled heart like soiled body and soul. Who would accepted a soul so beaten black and... 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. Oh your ratings are off the chart, You forever continue to amaze, I never wish from you to part, You put me in a merry daze. I ought to stop,... Continue Reading →

No one knows I saved some kids from bullying at schoolNo one knows I saved a dog from the downpours and the fliesNo one knows I saved a girl from a speeding carNo one knows I saved a friend from slitting up her wristsNo one knows I saved a boy from jumping off his roofNo... Continue Reading →
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 →
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 →
You cling to your lover You cling to the pain Like a mummified corpse clings to his beloved coffin You cling to the battery Leaking out from your phone Escaping from the various sins you‘re meant to atone You cling to your mother On your most caustic day When the clouds above are not more...

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...

Every night the guitar plays The songs which you wish to convey Without the words you cannot say That you suppress during the days A rattling rhythm through my bones I feel it when I’m all alone They strike my soul, these quivering tones, For a sin I must atone You gently stroke the strings... Continue Reading →
Submit yourself To the stillness of the sea The gentle quietness Surrounding you and me The peaceful azure And relaxing breeze Shall the demons deter And make them freeze Forgetting their mission To devour our minds They choose submission And unwind Into the draft Of the sandy skies Where the angels craft In disguise image...

Sometimes all it takes is a little push - a couple words of encouragement, reflecting the confidence and faith in you that you have the ability to achieve anything, that gives you the boost required to propel you to the top - to where you’re meant to be. Oh you beautiful rocket in distress, Don’t... Continue Reading →
This poem comes as the next part to Attraction. Please give that a read first! I see him, he calls out to me, Satisfaction with every broken shell. I see him, he calls out to me, Deepest secrets to only me he’ll tell. I see him, he calls out to me, His inner turmoil will be... Continue Reading →
I see it, it calls out to me, Something broken that needs to be fixed. I see it, it calls out to me, Spreading feelings and signals mixed. I see it, it calls out to me, The allure of mystery. I see it, it calls out to me, My imagination runs wild with fantasy. I... 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 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. Oh, when will these poor creatures open their eyes? Such state of mind shall lead to their demise, How do we change their disposition? How do we... Continue Reading →
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... Continue Reading →
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 →
I lay in my bed Wide awake at night The demons in my head Give me a fright They haunt me in My cryptic dreams Of decay within And unheard screams That penetrate My very core They permeate Through my pores Exuding fears Of calamity Through my ears Bursting viciously Creating an aura Of necrosis...

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. This noise, this noise It is troubling me Oh, how I weep! This noise, this noise They’re the verbal deadwood... Continue Reading →
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 →
Rupture my heart With your bow and arrow A flaming dart With aim so narrow Has caused my soul To bleed out for you My peace you stole You altered my every view Disrupting my orderly State of mind Which acutely Had me quarantined For I’ve been infected With your love Cardiac arrested Now I’m... Continue Reading →
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.
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,... Continue Reading →
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 →
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
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 →
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 →
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 →
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 →
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 →
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... Continue Reading →
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 →
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 →
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?
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 →
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 are the writers’ friend, Pouring out thoughts till the very end.
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 →
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 →
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 →
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
You appeared and disappeared with the speed of the wind, But you will forever be remembered and remain within.
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.
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
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 →
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 →
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 →
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
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
Her face flushed as she thought about the day, Slowly, tauntingly, he had finally made his way, She opened her eyes with amusement and desire, And within his she saw mirrored her burning fire, He didn’t need to ask, she was losing substance, All that consumed him was her exotic fragrance, It wasn’t merely about... Continue Reading →
I spent all my time chasing after you, You took me for granted because you knew, But now I’m never coming back to you, So now you don’t know what to do.
I play my music loudly in order to drown out the thoughts in my head, But what do I do when I can’t get them out when I’m lying at night in my bed?
What is true love? Is it unconditional love that knows when to back off in order to allow the other person to live a happier life without them? Or is it the determination to stay and fight to stand by their side? I was in a long-term LDR with my first love. We had a... Continue Reading →
Do you know how powerful you are? I am afraid to be by your side. For if I get too close and then far, I know that it would hurt inside.
The moment of truth had arrived. At last she would finally discover the answers to all of her questions in life, whether or not it had all been for naught. Would she go to heaven? Would she go to hell? Or did neither place even exist? Would she be born anew? Would her past sins... Continue Reading →
It hurts that the one I was the closest to is now the most distant. It hurts that our words and actions were inconsistent. It hurts that the one who knew me in and out says he doesn't know me at all. It hurts that now I really don't know him at all. It hurts... Continue Reading →
You and I had a full stop.
To the winds that carry your name to my heart, I plead with them for that to stop, For right now we are miles apart, One glance from you shall make me drop. They usher whispers to you of my love, To which you flash a smile bright as the sun, But hidden deep within... Continue Reading →
Have you ever been afraid to look out your window at night? A faint rattling you hear when outside there’s no light, A rumbling in the sky above that brings to life your fears, A tumbling in your innards as you grind your mental gears, The darkness that surrounds you just consumes you physically, A... Continue Reading →
“All the respect that I had for someone who I used to hold in very high regard and used to feel is one of the best people I’ve ever met just shattered once I discovered her true colors and that whatever good thing she does is just for show.” - a message I sent my... Continue Reading →
I thought that I would try to rebuild them, But my fractured walls came crumbling down, From their cracks did new wounds stem, The inauguration of a virgin ghost-town. The spirits of the past came to haunt my soul, Which was burdened by their high-pitched screams, Passing in and out through me, my sanity they... Continue Reading →
You never know a person's true colors unless you've observed/interacted with them in a stress-inducing environment.
As my inhibitions are inhibited, I can feel my willpower dissolving. External sources are not even mandated, From my actions I am not absolving. My brain attempts to send signals to stop me, But my hands inch towards my phone. My heart is done waiting for you to call me, My soul is done waiting... Continue Reading →
There I stood, alone Minding my own business Then it came along, Coated with a strongly adherent substance Attaching itself to me, but only on the surface It lured me in with a possibility Only to be extracting things from me An angel, it smiled at me sweetly The devil, it devoured my soul And...

The story of how she lost her voice. A young naive girl. An accident. A chastising. An explanation. A blockage. A desperation. A temper. A blue. Repeat cycle 🔄 A realization. A loss of voice. An expression through writing. Image source
What if... What if we didn't learn history? What if all our memories were erased and reset and we had zero knowledge of the past? What if we listened to the little ones - the unbiased ones? What if they taught us compassion for everyone? Hate is not born; it's learnt, it's taught. What if... Continue Reading →
Thank you for being there for me whenever I felt alone (and even when I didn’t 🙂 ) thank you for lifting me up every time I felt low. Thank you for staying by my side and giving me motivation and the confidence in myself that I could actually do things. Thank you for having... Continue Reading →
I sulk in the shadows, alone on my own, Waiting for someone, For I am alone, Someone to call my own. Someone from the shadows to pull me out, Someone, Who at me would never shout, Someone to call my own. Someone to pull me into the light, Someone, Who in darkness would set things... Continue Reading →
Do you ever ponder upon everything that has made you the person you are today? Do you ever venture to discover the reason for your madness? Is it somewhere rooted deep within your childhood self, waiting to be unlocked? Waiting for your loving hand to come and set it free? Waiting to be told “it’s... Continue Reading →
How do you know if you've had a traumatic event that you've buried down deep within if you can't seem to remember it?
Sometimes we question the existence of God Or whether or not He is a good guy Because Why would we suffer so much in life If God were superhero almighty Who is surmised to save us from all of our troubles? But think about it You're alive All of your worst days, you’ve survived God... Continue Reading →
"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world." - Harriet Tubman My 4th painting - a birthday gift for a friend!
Will you remember him, When he returns to whence he came? When he evaporates into thin air, Reverse raindrops back into the clouds. When his petals blow away into the wind, Like the dandelion seeds do, When they see you? Will you remember that he split his soul, For those who needed more support than... Continue Reading →
Words flow from your mouth so eloquently, You are her sun - as the earth, she feels your gravity. Her giggles make your heart just melt, Emotions that you've never felt. She revolves around you, and your energy of radiance. But her world involves her, and you start to prefer avoidance. Eventually, the heat gets... Continue Reading →
All this time I tried to erase you And now I know that I was wrong For I will always love you You’ll be in my heart, my mind is strong
I took a chance In order to Snap out of my trance, I told you How I really feel About you, So that I could deal Without you.
I do not know, what lies beyond this door, Is it paradise, or is it my foe? When will I grasp what is not meant to be seen? The intangible waves slip through the seams, I stand at the shore, waiting, waiting, For what feels like eternity, my patience testing, The lighthouse flickers, sputtering, gleaming,... Continue Reading →
Why, my dear, do you sway so, away from my command? My mind and body cannot heed to your every demand. I exist perpetually in embarrassment from your foolish deeds, And try as I might I cannot tend to all your fussy needs. Why do you seek what I cannot offer, I remain perplexed, A...

Take me out on an adventure, Oh take me to a place, Where the flowers venture, Towards the sun they face. Take me beyond the confines, Of my 4 empty walls, My mind the range refines, Woes washed by waterfalls. Take me where the land is green, And water crystal clear, Take me where I... Continue Reading →
Why are we alive?
To work, to play, to feel?
To love, to hate, to heal?
The question of all ages,
Unanswered through time
But isn’t it also so simple?
Why are we alive
One may ask,
And I will say,
To be good.
To look at it another way
For we live for the ones who love
We work for those who live with us
In order to make life more bearable for all.
Why are we alive you say?
To do good and be good,
Spread the love and joy of ever energy.
The world we live in
Flawed by itself, beautiful through nature
To be nurtured by us, love care and all.
So life life, do good
And in the end, have no regrets,
For you lived how you wanted to.
I gave my heart to you, and you gladly accepted. You treated it well but then had it arrested. You returned it back to me, battered and bruised, a bandaid on top - I wasn’t abused. I forced it back to you but you wouldn’t budge, we both continued to hold a grudge. Then you... Continue Reading →
Darling when our eyes meet, Your face beams up like the rising sun. Though you attempt to be discrete, I know that your heart I have won. During our time spent together, The morning glories bloom, We wish we could remain forever, Basking in their heavenly perfume. But it’s time to leave when dusk arrives,... Continue Reading →
Nobody is perfect. Think about the best person that you’ve ever met - even they would have some imperfections. Becoming perfect is an unattainable goal. However, I aspire to be flawless. What is the difference you might ask? To me, to be flawless is to not commit any error. That means to do everything to... Continue Reading →
I can’t help it, I can’t stop this feeling, I’m afraid of falling deeper into you. Do you feel the same way, darling? Do you never want to let go too? When I first saw you I never would’ve guessed, That I could ever feel this way, And now my thoughts are mixed and messed,... Continue Reading →
Mysterious stranger of the night, Did you drop down from the sky? Is it that the heavens might Have heard my feeble desperate cry? Your eyes seem to hold the stars, Sparkling with their bold designs, Like fireflies that are trapped in jars, Burning through obscure confines. Do they sense my bewilderment? At the sound...

Dance to the rhythm of my heart Like a rapid beating drum We’ll never be apart In harmony we’ll hum With you by my side I’d seldom wish for more No longer would I hide For with you I would soar But high up in the sky Loving feeling free I finally realized I Don’t... Continue Reading →
A bright sunny day A peaceful stroll through the park When the sky started to gray And all of a sudden, my world grew dark I increased my pace No one could see my face The shadows loomed over me I could feel them start consuming me My walk turned to a sprint As the black... Continue Reading →
The sunshine scares me, the wrath of tomorrow, The horrors of a brand new day, old sorrow, I wish to hide in my blanket all night long, But to face my challenges I must be strong. The silence of the night is peaceful and comforting, Trust me, no one would wish to wake to my... Continue Reading →
Your sweet deceptive smile on a bright day fools those none the wiser of your scheming dance twirling around them while having them soundly convinced that they are the leads. But I have seen you. I - who seem to be the lone witness of your dry smirk as you watched us in our darkest... Continue Reading →
I can go through life Blissfully unaware, Of all the strife That makes people stop and stare, Aghast at the state In which our world lies, Is this to be our fate Despite all of our tries? No! If only I did not know Of the horrors as such, About my day I could go... Continue Reading →
