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
I see A voice behind your voice Words beneath your words Waiting to be heard Wanting to be freed
Inside of me Hides an ocean Hardly fierce Seldom serene
You say you're Deep as an ocean Always restless, With waves of thoughts Whirlpools of feelings And secrets buried in trench What do I do, my dear? I'm just another bloke Who can't swim
All you did was smile And every star Shone brighter than The moon Happy Valentine's day to the one that got away.
You know you moved on when you love the memories but not the person; You know you're broken when you hate the memories but love the person. The problem is I neither moved on nor am I broken. It's like a scar that's ever present but doesn't seem to bother me anymore. Memories are scarred … Continue reading Nonsense in the mornings.
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 … Continue reading
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 … Continue reading A state of mind
