I should’ve been there. I know. It should’ve been my T shirt, not your pillow that soaks up your tears; should’ve been my ears not the walls that hear. The pavement that I sit on isn’t cozy, Y’know.. my face rests in my palms, I’m restless. The stillness of this moment has me perturbed. I … Continue reading Leave.
Tisha and I wanted to write on “scars” but I was clueless as ever. This is what I finally came up with: Underneath my skin are tissues and blood; they know your touch. My senses have recognised you long before you laid your hands on me; like on a quest for holy grail, you searched … Continue reading Scars – collaboration
A flower blossomed from the cracks of her skin. Only to wither away before she could blink. Desolation echoed her in her voice; life pale, it had endured pain. The eyes have dried. Emotions had died; of abandonment and famine. There are worms now, crawling into her heart, burrowing into her soul. She had waned, … Continue reading Garden.
‘Tis an unfair world, what do you know? Even broken hearts crave perfect melodies.
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.
The usual farmer’s market; people going around, buying vegetables, bargaining and chattering their mouths out. I see men staring at women, I see women exchanging glances. The sky was pale, clouds were scattered and feeble and the sun was about to set. I walked further past children crying for toys, parents covered their eyes, vendors … Continue reading Finding a way back.
It’d have been forever, y’know..... This moment. If only you’d let me.
I don’t care. I won’t bother to venture into the idea of why things came into existence. But I do care about what they’ve become. And I’m aggravated.
Broken crayons still colour. What about the burning ones? Are they still crayons? They’re melting away, lady. Fuck the shade, They’re out of shape.
*Me looking at my crush* Heart: go tell her! Tell her in this flora of life, you're a passionate bee, she's the brightest flower and hers is the sweetest nectar. Mind: don't listen to him. What're you trying to do? Fucking pollinate?? Heart: okay! Fine! Tell her your love for her is like the UV … Continue reading Trivial shit.
There's no beauty in brokenness. Ever seen a broken glass Put together again? Ever seen a broken heart Love somebody the same? Change is inevitable, darling; Nothing stays like it was before; Whatever does is an illness, needing a cure.
I'm a broken glass, baby I've got cracks, Not glitter.
A light leaks Through the cracks Of my broken heart There's blood spilled On the ground I got no scars I see a trail left behind Haven't come far
Falling stars, ungranted wishes Empty words, broken promises All that love unrequited No guilt that's confessed Scars hidden in plain sight Blood camouflaged Tears in the eyes Living our lives Dead inside
I need no rainbow, but the colors You don't have to follow, got my shadow Need no life, darling, Mine's just fine Got a stone cold heart And tears to swallow
I'm drunk on your love. When I cry for you, My tears taste like whiskey.
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
I see A voice behind your voice Words beneath your words Waiting to be heard Wanting to be freed
There's a knife through my back Reaching my bleeding heart Leaving behind a crimson trail There's a sword through my mind Creeping up on my weeping soul Where your sweet laughter hails The scar on my arm Singing our story To the vagabond, numb and frail There's a tear on your cheek Watching the world … Continue reading The cold closure.
There's this trap, you see When you fall, Can't snap out of it, All those comforting words Do nothing but mislead Why do you look elsewhere When I wait for you right here? Why are you blown away By someone who was never there? When the sweetness wears off, my dear I'm scared you'll be … Continue reading Just see
Without you My love, words Are mere scars on paper
Ever wondered why I came back to you Everytime? To take back what's mine Not love, not hope Not you, not us Not doubt, not remorse It lives in all the scars In my eyes, behind your smile When we're up all night Feel it come again? Embrace it, love, the pain Might leave a … Continue reading Reason
She had Heavenly eyes And An abyss inside
There's this place I know Beyond feelings and emotions Between tears and smiles Sealed inside the heart Sprawling into the mind That's where I hide, My friend, In my words that keep me alive Long after I die
If All it takes is a word To break us apart I'd rather be mute And have a place in your heart
You knew I loved you When you realized That a smile on your lips Caused a flood in my eyes And I knew you didn't When those tears Hardened my heart
If you love me Make me fight for it Not beg
"Wake me up" I said "From this sleep, with your love" "Close your eyes" She said Caressing my hair In our bed "Sleep now, dear and wait for me" Little did I know That I'd sleep For eternity
Her love Was like the mystical waters The shallower they got The deeper I sank
I'm a creep Take your happiness away, Make you weep I am fire Burn your dreams Scar you deep I'm a wolf Hiding in plain sight Hunt the sheep Lie to your heart, baby Come to me Chained by my promises, You'll believe that you're free Look into my eyes Stare into my soul Tell … Continue reading Creep
