I’ve had answers; plenty of them. “What do you want to be?” They asked me. I’ve had answers, man. Didn’t even think twice, “I’ll be the king of the world” and it’d sound right. Things changed. I had answers, no reasons yet happy; now there reasons and no answers. Am I happy? I wish I … Continue reading Changes.
The clouds I’ve been staring at this afternoon, all I could catch is a glimpse. Sometimes I look at the clouds and wonder, are they as lost as I am? My thoughts drift across the sky with the clouds up high. Then I realise even losing yourself comes at a price.
From torn sketches to lost books, it has been a tedious ride. I remember the wind in my hair and sunlight on my face as I rode my bicycle to school and the tears that ran down my cheeks because of broken things. I’ve travelled miles of years from dusk till dawn, bound to people … Continue reading Rumination
Thinking is hard: It’s like I can’t think when I try to think because my thinking fails to realise even trying to think is also thinking. What do I think about ? That mirror that makes me look at myself even if I don’t want to ? Or that tap that keeps leaking no matter … Continue reading I think, I don’t.
This is a good place to be; in the middle of this field away from morals, convictions and judgements. I close my eyes and hear whatever is happening around me. It’s quiet. I found solace, I’ve missed this. Lush green farms surround me; trees and grass sway with the wind like they’re dancing. Why should … Continue reading Solace.
The clock is ticking. I look around, look at people and notice the guy beside me is saying something. I nod and laugh. What was the joke? No idea. He blabbered on. Ugh! It’s raining outside; I see rain drops on the window glass. Wind was scarily loud. My phone keeps ringing, fuck that shit. … Continue reading Argh!
I should’ve closed the window. The calendar slaps itself against the wall making too much noise; I check my phone for the clock. When was the last time I looked for date? It’s not that there’s always something important but when was it? I walk to the calendar and try to guess what day it … Continue reading Minutes of midnight.
Life sometimes gets so hopeless that there’s nothing else one can do but laugh and Tears don’t taste good anymore. Emotions have abandoned me a long time ago, these are the days of apathy. Crises give meaning to existence. My soul encompasses the universe and scars are galaxies with stories hidden in plain sight. There … Continue reading Unrelated.
The great grief floods my insides; I drown, suffocate, lose my breath and now I know; I’m alive.
It’s cold. The blanket doesn’t do its job, I shiver a bit but I’m okay. What time is it? What does it matter? The walls that surround me have stories of their own, they listen to people. It’s good that they don’t speak, imagine the horrors we’d face if they did. Silence is serene. So … Continue reading
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 … Continue reading Blind fish.
Hey Patients! I’m having a tough time writing poetry and I wanted to do sumn different. I proposed a collaboration in which I ask a question about …Collab! (nothing too crazy, I swear) So finally! Finally!!! A collab with the one that’s always so aloof and elusive! I’m really glad you came up with this. … Continue reading Collab! (nothing too crazy, I swear)
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.
We live in a complicated world. We’re taught the wrong subjects, we get the wrong answers and we learn the wrong lesson. society is an institution that creates an illusion of unity by dividing people. “It’s a free world” they say, yet govern you by laws, restrictions and sanctions. Have you looked outside your window? … Continue reading Shower thoughts
The more I understand, The more I don’t understand.
Image source: Pinterest We all have a strong desire to have a sense of belonging. Humans are social animals, we live in groups and a place here groups coexist is called a society. Belonging to a society is okay, being a part of community in a society is great too; identifying ourselves as a part … Continue reading 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 … Continue reading Your thoughts.
Time tells me this, This moment, This second, I can exist, I cannot.
If I had a heart, I'd lose it to you; If I had a soul, I know who it'd choose; If I had feelings gushing through, I'd call it love But I wouldn't know what to do. 'Coz darling I'm a fallen feather; Fleeting around, never settling down.
I looked at your picture this morning and said to myself: "If only she loved me like she loved herself" What an irony.
That sad moment when you know That You helped her find herself At the cost of losing yourself.
Isn't it strange When you want to shout aloud In the crowd but you can't And when you're alone, you won't? Isn't it strange When we know what we want And what we want Isn't what wants us? So say Fuck you and move on
I swam to the shore In vain; The waves pulled me back I wasn't alone.
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.
Through the narrow paths and lousy traffic, I raced my way to work. Amidst all that chaos and people giving wrong path indicators, music is my saving grace. The ride to work is always an adventure; rude people, potholes, broken roads, heavy traffic, people coming at you, taking the wrong side, man! It is one … Continue reading My worst enemy.
The tears from my eyes, won't tell you any story; The voice that died, refuses to say sorry; Those nights aren't aware of the dreams downright scary; These lips now hide the burden I carry; Do you hear my silence? Can you read my thoughts? Do I have a choice? I want to be left … Continue reading
I lived with people I loved alone I talked to people I'm still a stone
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?
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
