Back to life.

The suppressed voice didn't dare lash out. The world was getting blurrier, adding to it, the double vision. Is the sky falling down? Why does it feel like the ground is about to cave in? There are people staring but nobody seemed to care. I couldn't feel my arms anymore; my legs gave up on…

Is that you?

I still see you On the swing, laughing hard Moving slow When I look out the window; Could it be untrue? I notice the leaves that fall, Trees covered in snow, The older I grow; This wrinkly skin knows Your touch was that of God, Healing my soul, In the hot summer strolls.

Incomplete.

Down the road, up the hill, Chasing ghosts from memories Reaching out To those tangible melodies Your footprints are in the sand I Fill my feet in from behind Walking the path, being washed away By the waves that came from nowhere There's a voice calling me, "This way leads you into the deep; Wake…

Fears.

This man had a golden ring That guy could dance and sing The pale man held you by your hip The fat guy gestured me to sit Sometimes I waited in that car Other days, I'd just stand afar Won't dare imagine where you were When you come back crying, hiding a scar Took the…

Where are you?

You have a name, I dare not write You have a story, life, an endless night We have memories, can't help but recall Ours is an ending I remember, Everytime I fall Like stones on a mountain, your dreams are scattered The wind blows past my ears, like all our unholy vows uttered My hands…

Everytime

Sometimes I talk to the stars They listen, y'know Sometimes I listen to the wind It sings, soft and slow Sometimes I look into the water And hear it say, "you're in for a show" Sometimes I sit by the fire As it warms my soul Sometimes I lose myself Searching for you

Oh my!

He stood in the end Of the lane, at the bend A group of four "I don't see them" I'd pretend Please don't say my name Don't yell at me I'm ashamed Why me? Is it only 'cuz I'm weak? It's been more than I can take this week Everytime you pass by A part…

Oneself.

How does it feel When you break free from Those chains? What is it like When all your efforts go In vain? Is there pain When you carry all that blame? Tell me, brother, I heard you say "It's all the same" Is your soul now A relic of your past? Do you feel your…

In your memory

Leave me in this abyss Floating around, Eroding Surrounded by darkness Away from sanity I lose the ground Drifting for eternity, Devoid of light and sound Ghastly whispers Voices that mourn Lonely spirits weep as Everything is undone Faceless, they roam In this carnival of souls, I watch them fade away Dreading my turn In…

Letting go

Holding my breath, I gaze upon the ocean That lies beneath The mountain of guilt I stand on Brave enough to dive, Scared enough to live, Reminiscing the days gone. As tears flood my eyes; Tired of my disguise, now I know, It's about time. Looking at the twilight, Almost dead inside I try with…

Burnt papers, Fallen leaves And a heart that grieves; Scars that healed, Tears concealed, Love, the lust and greed; Broken promises Stolen kisses Wasted ink, Everything that disappeared in a blink Blood and scars, Sun and the stars Whisper tales of us Memories, victim to rust.

Memories.

This shouldn't have happened. If it's really that unstoppable, I must take the fall, not the other. My favourite black jeans is now torn at my knee as I skid past the lorry trying to avoid crashing into the car that crossed us. Little did I know the disc brakes were so effective. I could…

Acceptance

Two wrinkled figures face each other in a coffee shop right beside the sidewalk. A mini chessboard with tiny pawns scattered on either sides lay on the table. "My father amassed a fortune when he returned from the war. While it had its own traumatic effects, war made him realise how important family is to…

Souvenirs

Twenty old photographs Letters filled with paragraphs Clothes that look like rags Bracelets without tags All those collectible cards Figurines with broken arms My interest in arts A perfume that smells like farts Everything, neatly packed In this bright designer box Near the wooden blocks, Between the broken clocks Lie there, no better than rocks…

Burning bridges

From the edge it burns Every paper, taking turns All the ink on the paper, dark Gone to the flames Yes, that's my arc Raging smokes block my sight I'm getting rid of this tonight Ashes here, ashes there Is anyone there? Does anybody care? Consumed by fire, You perished, my dear; Here's to a…

Impulse

There he sat on the river bank looking at trees and mountains that the water reflected. Boring job requires more energy than a tiresome one. He had nothing to do. Neither his superior nor his peers told him anything. The trees were dancing in the wind, the water flowed elegantly giving out blissful reflections. The…

I’m here again

You promised me heaven, You threw me in hell; I burned as you watched, I cried as you laughed, I begged as you walked away Wishing me well. Ashes all around, memories to dust: A rot had set in, I'm degenerating, Filled with hatred and distrust. All the belief is lost, Love and lust start…

Chase

Gasping for breath, I stood there, at the end of the street behind a tree. Never have I ever been chased this long. I had no option but to walk back the same way if I were to go home. Fear was not an option. 'you can do this' Bluffing my heart didn't work out.…
