Maybe.

I’d pour all my hopes into a jar and store them in the attic, if you promise you’ll come back, tell me you’d stay. I put myself to sleep drinking a glass of water and dreams but tonight, it’s just emptiness and me. The door is half open, windows are half shut and I rummage…

Loneliness.

I swallowed stars to water my dreams, I shrunk the skies & fit them in my eyes with hopes buried underneath. Grass and trees grow on my fertile skin and the sun burns within (me). I inhale and exhale storm winds; the climate, sometimes calm, sometimes pouring. Thoughts run wild and free, clouds are fleeting;…

Waiting.

She sat facing the window. The door’s locked tight, so were windows; Light barely crept in. Her body grew defiant and feeble with each passing day; decay has set in. She waited for rain.

And I know.

Why don’t you tell me it’s okay? Why can’t you tell me I’m okay? What makes me a fool? Writing for you? Or expecting a response? Where have all my apologies gone? Why hasn’t your forgiveness reached my door? Why are we quiet When there’s blood on the floor?? If I’m bad, why won’t you…

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…

As I stand In this rain, Getting wet With all the pain Feeling numb It’s all the same There go my feelings Down the drain Walking down The memory lane, I realize Everything has gone In vain

I’m just gonna lay here tonight Searching for you From star to star Connecting the dots Constellations apart

I see you walk

The sand sneaks in between My toes, trying to stop me The castle awaits my return Winds sing me a Melody Waves go back and forth Asking me to stay, Watch the sun sink For what it’s worth Far across the beach, I see you walk Like a mirage that you are Now I realize,…
