The inkling in my handSeeks refuge,Urging me to jot it down,A revolt rages within. My soul tries to breaks the walls of the dungeon,It craves to be let out;The pen is a prison,Paper is the land far away.Letting go would mean pain,There is no liberty without a price;Writing is evil,Something that I need to survive. … Continue reading A writer’s whisper – collab
Life sometimes gets so hopeless that there’s nothing else one can do but laugh and Tears don’t taste good anymore. Emotions have abandoned me a long time ago, these are the days of apathy. Crises give meaning to existence. My soul encompasses the universe and scars are galaxies with stories hidden in plain sight. There … Continue reading Unrelated.
The walls have nothing to hide. They don’t have anything to show either. I can’t see my hands but I know I’m looking at them. It’s warm in here, unlike the coldness they often attribute it to. Sweat wets my clothes and I lay there motionless on the ground. What’s there to look for here? … Continue reading
The great grief floods my insides; I drown, suffocate, lose my breath and now I know; I’m alive.
It saddens me.You were here looking at me, smiling; I open my eyes to darkness that surrounds me. The same darkness brings you back again when I close my eyes and I’m beguiled. Dreams are prisons and memories are torments; yet we surrender. Wilfully. The only answer I can give to any question that has … Continue reading To my muse.
It’s dark. Pitch black. Looking around, I see darkness moving within itself. I don’t hear a thing. There’s thunder and lightning but I don’t hear a thing. I’m just not paying attention so I don’t hear shit. When you spend enough time in the quiet, you’ll notice the silence speaks. It has a voice of … Continue reading Black.
I rubbed my finger against the wall and it turned black like my shadow, dense and opaque. Whatever I touched, wherever I went, all turned dark; all the light absorbed, nothing emitted gets out. There are no roads, there is no path, not one direction but I walk. The world bled red but why it … Continue reading This darkness
Would you be my compatriot? We shall sing, we shall dance, we shall talk; turn our faces in disquiet. There’s music, there are drinks, there are people we shall meet; there are sorrows, there is pain, tiny moments of joy taking our breath away. I can wipe your tears, you can dry my eyes; we’ll … Continue reading Stay with me.
“The dead shall rise again” cawed he, resting on my shoulders; always preaching. “The roads to hell go through the heaven, the path to heaven is of thorns and blood” His claws dug deeper, every time I looked away, the voice denser, the further we tread, “lift your head up and show your shame” My … Continue reading Crow.
I raised my hand at the sky and closed my fist, pretending to catch the stars. Foolish as it my sound, a weird sense of beatitude crept into my soul, lighting up my insides. A peculiar warmth emboldens the adolescent heart caged inside my dejected adulthood. The unscrupulous skies have a magical way of inspiring … Continue reading I get by.
You tell me I don’t see it But trust me when I tell you, I see light in everyone; each in their own wavelength. The world is brimming with brightness and hope, sometimes a little too much. You’re so blinded by the lights that you need a little darkness to dim your sight; to see … Continue reading Light.
I’m thinking of the blues as flowers grow out of the bruise; the rusty old chair sings songs of you. Eyes have shrunk, tears have dried, wrinkles on my skin have stories that hide. Life was bittersweet, people fell like teeth; I wash my hands with a few good deeds; you know, to live is … Continue reading Come on in.
If I slept yesterday, Wake me up today; If I don’t, put me to sleep tomorrow.
I’ve written about you. What I write are lies but trust me when I tell you; when you’re home, in the darkness, the shadows desert you, the wind carries whispers and the sky ain’t always blue. Would you miss me then? When I don’t have a name anymore, when my body doesn’t walk around, when … Continue reading A Short letter.
You ask me why I lay here all day, staring into nothingness ? ‘Cuz darling, when everything you believed in loses its meaning, your bleeding heart and shattered faith tell you that this is the closest you can get to dying before you go out and the cycle repeats. It’s a beginning and an ending … Continue reading Abyss.
In these perilous times, We don’t look for eternal light; All we need is a lamp Enough to last through the night.
She’s black magic, She’s blue flame; She’s the scary darkness, the wind whispering your name.
You say I'm in darkness And I need light? But my words Are my saviour And pain makes me write.
I think of you everytime My lips bleed My skin yearns for yours Desires, dying to be freed Every inch of my skin Carrying your scars Is a holy Grail made By your fingernails This neck craves for your bite My cave thirsts for your light The sweat reminds me Of our might The bed … Continue reading Us.
There she descends From the skies Defying all the angels The hell shall rise You're the chosen one Oh don't you dare smile Nothing is deadlier Than a woman With changed intentions Winds change directions Skies bleed emotions All your hopes Are now victims to erosion Don't you look at the skies, There ain't no … Continue reading
Spent my life complaining About darkness and cold It's all mine, the blame And conscience that I lack When I shut the windows Locked the doors And painted them black
As the sun sets, All of my monsters come alive Where have you been, love? I'm a prisoner and they reign Where is hope, love? I search for it again I rot alone and quiver Feeling hands all over All there is, is darkness And a crimson red river For I might drown for our … Continue reading Dear love
On this path, I walk With my head down Avoiding looks and talks Hiding the frown A thousand questions haunt The road I've taken For answers, I hunt Unsure and broken The voice That once calmed My demons Is now gone A part of me, that went Searching for you Was lost and never found … Continue reading Search
When all the pain Starts to sink in, A chill surges Through the spine I close my eyes To dying light Nothing but darkness Surrounds me I'm used to these nightmares They can't scare me In this abyss, taking turns Through this madness I run There come the sands of Guilt and pleasure Scorching my … Continue reading Fever dream
Her weary eyes Tell me tales, of Laughter and mourning The tears that dried Revealed, She was indeed, drowning Those lips That once donned a smile Hiding behind the wisps Now carry a frown She had no disguise Whatever was left behind Came back to her And she held on tight Queen was she Of … Continue reading
From the ashes, he rose In the darkness and smoke Scarred by his past Bleeding from the blame Bright shone his eyes A soul set ablaze Strong, his desire Driven by hate Hell was the path, A battle with fate Steps, heavy Breath on fire Mind numb, A walking nightmare Vengeance in his blood, Blood … Continue reading A man.
Life is hard, Said my father God watches over, it's written in the stars You need not bother All those stars, All those skies, Show you way, And test your might People come, people go Come what may, You shan't close the door Open your eyes, Look behind the disguise Beneath all these lies Lies … Continue reading Finding
An aimless soul A melancholic ghoul A game played foul Beware of the howl Always on the prowl When there's darkness around, Don't make a sound Hiding underground, Nowhere to be found Too scary to be true Darker than shadows, Morbid and cruel Wandering without a clue In your mind, It flew, About time you … Continue reading Yourself
With every season that comes and goes Devoid of happiness and sorrows Under the bright sun or dark clouds There's either blinding light Or depressing shadows Familiar are all the roads, Nothing comes and goes But here you are, A raven among the crows A hope amidst helpless souls Enlightening is your call Take me … Continue reading You
