Please don’t mind me.

I think I could use a pet, Y’know, for petting purposes not because I’m lonely nor do I have other intentions. When I look through the window with the sun splattered all over my dried up face, It feels like a thousand needles piercing through my skin. There are pains that you hate and there…

Beauty

You speak of beauty in imperfections, say the moon has got spots on him; those are craters, nimwit, dents that don’t receive sunlight. I look at the depth hiding in darkness, you search for vandalised surface. Beauty lies not in imperfections but perceptions. The more damage we take, the more depth we have; flaunt your…

A chance.

Why do you love, you ask? Why does anything exist at all? There are things beyond reason, answers that dare not be questioned, and quests that can never end; Something as pointless as existence and unexplainable as the cosmos. Some may call it an illusion, you might even be delusional to call it An essence…

Blind fish.

There’s plenty of fish in the sea, so I heard. I flung the fishing rod into the air, hoping to catch some. Every time I whipped, the hook came back with nothing. Is it the bait? I switch it and try my luck again but everything goes in vain. I’m a poet, you see, It…

Love/Misery

Woman after woman barged in and walked away; They had taught me one thing; that love is fleeting, conditional and devious. I thought I was seeking happiness and fulfilment but now I know, it was suffering that lured me, something that stayed in the shadows, always covered by sugarcoated lies called joy and completeness. It’s…

Your thoughts.

You are what you think you are, you’re not what you think you are and what you don’t think you are is also you. You are everywhere, there’s nowhere without you because wherever you go, you take yourself with you. Are you free? No. Are you bound? No. You’re freely bound and restrictively free. The…

Trivial shit.

*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…

Wrong time

Something written In the wrong time Read it, brethren, It has no rhyme The song of silly crimes Written as the bell chimed A mouse ran from the inside Of the house, escaping the cat's glide The mad dog howling Since the middle of the night A shadow crept in, Avoiding the light It stayed…

What good is the eye When the mind is blind What are words for When everything is a lie What are good intentions worth When all we do is hurt What good are we When we can't even survive a fight What good is your God When prayers go unheard What good am I When…

Mornings like these.

My head aches from all that vodka induced whirry sensation yet my heart desires more. Enough is enough says my mind but something inside me says, "Go on." I hear people talking to me, I know I'm responding but what the hell am I even saying? One thing's for sure, secrets are being revealed, 'cuz…

Where lies the beauty?

"I can be beautiful if I try." She said, shrugging her shoulders, as her eyes met the ground; I see her innocence flooding all over her embarrassed face. "You already are." I murmured as I faced denial. Not everybody is beautiful to everyone. The truth is, beauty doesn't lie in an individual; it's in perception…

Parasite

From the loneliness I flee; An aimless refugee When my mind bleeds Your thoughts with greed All the demons inside Are freed Feeding on my sanity, Do you see? A paranoid clarity Takes over me Night has lost its brevity Emotions shed their gravity Creatures claim victory What's left is an effigy Look deeper, my…

Stagnant and rotting In the corner Lonely and brooding Wiping tears, there's nothing To believe in, All the feathers of my Clipped wings Fly around me with the cold wind I'm the fallen one, oh yes Crashed down to the ground Shattering all the dreams Putting back together, piece by piece Rebuilding myself I could…

A state of mind

There was a time I flew above this illusion Masquerading as a man of all seasons Replacing my face With every mask that I could change The further I went, the better I could see Alas Every face I wore, killed a part of me Bodies of lies, A soul that cries Take over the…
