The Tree

The branches of that unusual tree,They haunt everything in the immediate vicinity.This enshrouding forest comprises of just one element,That long-aged tree,The one which should have been axed a long time ago,Yet there it stands,Grotesque,Disfigured,And oh so completely twisted,Sending chills down the spine of the beholder,It's such an ugly sight. Bent over,The frail branches stoop so... Continue Reading →

Expectations…

Being chased by a shadow each night,I can feel its heavy breath on my shoulder,Numbingly cold,And unmistakably similar,It's got me backed into a corner,Against the wall with no escape route,The raspy voice grows in my ear,Piercing right into my brain,'You're not good enough.',It insists,'You'll never be.'. With fingers around my throat,I find myself unable to... Continue Reading →

Silent Plea

Round and round,At a dizzying pace,My world keeps spinning,Going around on this carousel of despair,And it's another night,Where I keep spiraling,Down into the pits of sorrow,Drowning in a familiar loneliness,A wave of lethargy that crashes into me,Bit by bit,Things lose their charm,It's all dull and mundane,My world tarnished by a tar-like grey, I'm always rooted...

The Nile

The sight of this familiar ocean,Far as the eye can see,It haunts me,Every day,From when I wake up,And when I fight for sleep,I find myself stranded in the same place,In the midst of a dark ocean,With nothing to grab hold,The waves that are your memories,They rock me through the night,Leaving me sleepless,They became the cause...

Saviour

Sometimes, When nothing makes sense, On days when it seems it's not worth put up a fight, That you'd much rather just give up and let everything go, Once and for all, The lump in your throat, Refuses to go away, And you feel detached from this world. Through no fault of your own, Despite... Continue Reading →

Solus

The familiarity, And bleakness of it all, Only this dark situation that I've known all my life, I don't say it often, I try to hide it to the best of my ability, I've learnt to live with it, But every so often this feeling comes crashing into me again, So intense that I don't... Continue Reading →

Sentimental

Lately, I've been feeling oddly different, It's a bit difficult to explain, But I didn't tend to overthink things a lot before, Nor was I so easily moved to tears over the littlest of things. I'm not quite sure what it is, But recently, My heart feels heavier, Tears always threaten to flow down, I'm... Continue Reading →

Forgotten Kingdom

Under the foggy air, Piercing through the hazy mist, Diving deep into the troubled, infinite ocean, It's lifeless, Scanty coral reefs and sparse marsh distorting the gaze of the rare visitor, A realm unknown, Mysteries galore, Contrary to what's said, Both time and tide seem to be at a standstill here. Shrouded in different shades... Continue Reading →

Scars

These scars that grow more visible with each passing day, Red and grotesque, Followed by an incessant itch when the night is at its darkest, Like being stabbed repeatedly by a million thorns, This affliction spread in bits, Until it took over all of me. What once was smooth, Is now rough, Battered, ragged and... Continue Reading →
