Yes I see them. Those clouds floating away abandoning my skies, making way to sunlight. The rains have gone and the days shall now be long; air carries the season’s warmth. I miss the cold, that chill down my spine; I shed the skin that I once called mine. A strange feeling of comfort creeps … Continue reading
Maybe the worst thing we can do to ourselves is to be unhappy and being content with it. There are a million things bothering me and another million to be happy about but when was it ever about numbers? We have our preferences, don’t we? That’s all that matters. I long for something I don’t … Continue reading Mundane.
In this garden I walk; where the birds sing, fragrant flowers blossom and gargantuan trees dance in perfect synchrony. And butterflies added to the symphony. The birds were crows and I hate crows that sing; Floral fragrances are suffocating. I then realise, to feel butterflies in my stomach, I don’t have to swallow them.
“And when you notice the serendipities when you’re in love....” she added and I was like “serendi what??” Okay why do you have to use fancy words when you’re in love? Doesn’t “I’m happy” suffice?? I’m not a native English speaker and my vocabulary is abysmal. So, I was talking to someone I know about … Continue reading Love, o love. Love!
My father had a dream, so did his. When you stop dreaming, it’s life that you’ll see. I dare you to dream, A dream with legitimacy. Now ‘wake up’ makes more sense to me because our generation is as hopeless as it can be.
I thought I had wings and dreamt of flight, only to realise they were hands. Could barely crawl, yet life had me running after people and things. Everything was quiet and it was too late before I found my voice. I searched for myself through the eyes of people and ways of the world; now … Continue reading Voids.
There I was on the terrace last night, looking into the sky, staring at the moon. Well, that’s about it. I was just looking. It’s okay to do something that has no purpose; it just has to make you happy. Stop expecting meaningful shit all the time. Life itself lacks meaning. Enough said.
Do not be the moon Hiding parts of you In the dark; Don't be the sun, Shining bright, I can never see you With a naked eye; Don't be a star Fading with the night; Don't be the clouds Changing shapes Always fleeting by; Just be here, Still and serene like The yellow skies.
I'm a broken glass, baby I've got cracks, Not glitter.
Your presence Was like a candle In my life That burned in broad daylight There's no point anyway.
I looked at your picture this morning and said to myself: "If only she loved me like she loved herself" What an irony.
Happiness, you see Is like a wanderer It goes away, gets lost But wherever it is Eventually finds home.
Can I just walk away and not come back? In a world where there's no right or wrong, from a place where people laugh, singing a sad, sad song, where I'm unaware of myself but conscious of others; may I not ask, just leave? Don't you think it's too much to ask? To not look … Continue reading Random Thoughts.
It's like when you shout from the top of a mountain; You get your voice back in echoes and that's it. You're empty again. Nobody heard you and those who did didn't care.
"I want a watch like yours" she whined, swaying her hands. "What's the use of having a watch when you can't read the time?" I said. "It's 11:30." She muttered. "It's the same time all day for you." I burst out in laughter. "Okay 2:30. Now get me my watch." And she walked away in … Continue reading Her majesty.
Let's take a walk in this mad, mad world; you better hold my hand 'cuz it's gonna get cold. Lavender winds caress your hair, the entirety envies your flair, girl, you're a sight for my sore eyes and a beauty to behold. Let's have a talk in this lonely, crowded shack. Would you like some … Continue reading Let’s.
In life's monsoon, It's the rain that persists; Not thunder. Not lightning.
Your feet on this path Your words in this moment And Your silence in the other Your ink on my paper Your song in my voice Your thoughts in my mind My dreams in your eyes It's a wonderful Life.
Every cry a Melody Every sadness, a symphony Happiness, melancholy And smiles hide tragedies
Suffering, you see, is inevitable. Some suffer for happiness And others, from it.
I hid an ocean in my eyes, Cyclone in my mind Fire in my words And wilderness in my heart
To lands far away, I walk To heal my heart, I walk To make you smile I break my heart I move away I walk
You're my drug You're my therapy You're the escape From my darkest side You're my illness You're the cure You're my suffering And the happiness I hide
The jar is full of pills I take one a day So it slowly kills I slit my wrist tonight There's no death In the blood that spills So I run, my friend Follow the bleeding trail Find me, Find me in the end
My eyes were forcibly exposed to sunlight from the windows telling me it's morning already and I'm late. Eyelids, lazy as hell refused to open up, well, they have no choice anyway. My hands searched all over the bed to find my phone but couldn't. Time for eye and hand coordination has come but they … Continue reading Sunday morning. Where’s the motivation??
Your voice is Music to my ears When I see you sing, I'm blind to my fears
Leave my hand Wave at me Say goodbye and Smile with a wink Fly away, Spread your wings I'll find my way And a new beginning My part ends here, you see Keep me alive In your memories Remember this, just let it be Don't you fret Over what we are And what we could … Continue reading Listen
My level of friendship: You can tell me the same thing over and over again on different occasions and I'll still listen like it's the first time, everytime.
Where your love and hate Coincide Where your soul feels weightless And lights up inside Where you can be angry But not used to it and cry Where you don't need wings But can fly Where you can be with me And just be mine I'll meet you there Believe me, girl Everything Will work … Continue reading
You search for butterflies Yet live a life of misery and lies You play a game, Everytime you change the name You want to be remembered But all you do is ignore You want what you want But never care for someone who wants you Nothing is never enough When you don't know What you … Continue reading People.
