The past is filled with stories and the future, fantasies. This is now. Neither do I have a story nor a fantasy. The photograph I hold is dear to me; in it, I see a happy man. A possible story. A certain fantasy. How the tables have turned. I look at it and whisper “I … Continue reading Looking back
Don’t ask me what is wrong,Don’t tell me what is right;Don’t say there will be lightAt the end of the night. Don’t expect me to be strong,Stop looking for a fight;Within me liesA never ending fright. There are blacks,There is white,The Grays you don’t noticeIs what we call life;You give me your timeAnd you will … Continue reading Listen.
Everything has an end. Your favourite music, the book that got you hooked, delicious food, heck! Even life itself. What do we do when we hear of someone’s death? Offer condolences? What good are condolences for? They’re just momentary, fleeting sympathies forgotten with time. The best thing we can do for the dead is to … Continue reading My condolences.
Oh you don’t have to remember my name nor come, pay respects to my decaying mane; Don’t bother, memories shall fade; don’t cry, tears only come in vain; What I am is what shall remain, what I was is a disappearing stain. Life goes on, death lives on.
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.
Everything I let go of is everything I hold on to. How ironic, this feeling of letting go is; You think you let go of things and people, you think. It’s not letting go. You never let go. You live with them. Let go, my ass.
We’re all stars lighting up someone’s sky. We’re all stars, fading away like glimpses of distant light. We’re all stars, only alive for the night.
Carved on trees, is my name; papers carry my words, the life has been shallow, haven’t tasted fame; you will forget my voice, when have we last talked? Come atop the mountain, sit by the little red rock; say my name, you will see me walk To you, I sing this song, Let me die … Continue reading Memory
Sometimes I wish I could remember my dreams; Sometimes I wish You were just a dream.
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.
I walk in the shadows, I dwell in the past Lurking in pain, the night is all I ask People are mirages, smoky, the path Voices are fleeting and aghast Hope starts to decay, ghosts come alive Guilt takes over, raining down the sky I walk further, I bear the pain For this life has … Continue reading Darkness.
Lay me down, put me to rest; The time is now, easy and slow. Under the skies, warm and clear; In the muddy ground, devoid of snow; Six feet under, leave me alone.
I’m done chasing the ghosts of our past,I wish it were a reality,But we both knew it wouldn't last. You broke my wings,I hid my plight,But I never hinderedYour will to fly; There’s no way your words will lead meBack into that path,I set you free, then,For if we're meant to be, we shall meet … Continue reading
The more I understand, The more I don’t understand.
You may die, I may perish; Memories fade and People forget to cry For you, for love; But we live, We stand tall; As long as I'm here, As long as I write; For until my time is done, Everyday is forever, Every minute, A lifetime.
I wish I could write a poem for you, darling; I wish I could sing for you but I laugh at that thought because it'd be as fake as our love. You wanted a pastime and I was lonely. Perfect match eh? Probably not. Oh how I hated your giggles! Remember when you laughed out … Continue reading An old draft 2
How do you even exist, You fragile thing? I could hurt you with a touch And a gentle smile Can make you sing. Why do you like your cage, And the life you're living? When you can fly high Never soil your feet again? My heart had mellowed Feeling your fingers on my chest; My … Continue reading Hey! 🐛
Whatever we said to each other and everything that meant the world to us; the silence, stolen kisses, moments up against the wall, sharing food, staring at stars that fall, words said, promises made, the home we dreamt of, the world we wanted to tour; They don't mean shit now. Remember when you said you'd … Continue reading An old draft.
Six feet under I sleep Bones rotting away Under this heap I lay Buried with me Are my memories Do you regret having no say? Does your pride numb the pain?
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 … Continue reading Oneself.
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 … Continue reading In your memory
Under the dim lights and thick black star ridden sky, we raced to the rendezvous like some giant alien dog with wings was chasing us. A kilometer later, my bike started groaning, warning us to slow down so it doesn't break down. Who listens to machines? In a matter of minutes, we were at the … Continue reading Tips to wake up late please?
