Lament

I find myself falling in your thoughts again, Under the starry sky which I look upon, In the middle of the night, It's got me wondering, Do you still think about me too? Are you looking up at the same sky, Every single night, Like I still do? The sad songs I've plugged in, They... 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 →

Deceit or Deserved?

A nightmare which inevitably turned into my reality, It haunts me every single night, Before I go to sleep, I lay there, While that picture flashes again, One that I've been trying to shake off for an eternity now, But it remains as vivid as ever. In just a few moments, When my world came... Continue Reading →

Writer’s Block

Some days, it's easier to burn through pages, Set them alight with this ink, Transcribing thoughts seamlessly without having to erase every other letter, The blueprint is already laid out in my mind as I jot it down, Connecting the dots, Or the boxes I keep locked and stashed away in my mind, An ammunition...

Insecurities

All my life I was constantly told, That I wasn't anything special, To the point I even hear these cruel words whispered to me by my reflection in the mirror each morning, And screamed at by my mind every night before I fall asleep, No matter what I do, It's never good enough, Something is...

One Last Time

In the middle of an aura of sentimentality, A room that is rich with memories, yours and mine, Ours, Time seems to slip seamlessly, We know it's all coming to an end. Hours roll by like seconds as we struggle to come to terms with what's happening, You look rueful, a tear staining that pretty... Continue Reading →

For a Day…

It's been quite some time, Yet you still are the way you were when I last saw you, Downcast and downtrodden, Caged away in your depression, I know it gnawed away at you slowly, In the shadows, It chipped away until you were one with the darkness, It's pointless now, Devoid of any meaning, But...

Elusive Closure

When I reached out my hand to pick up a carton of milk off the department shelf, I thought I was the only one in this aisle, But I felt something warm and familiar briefly graze my skin, A pallid wrist with sleeves pulled up halfway to reveal a few bracelets hanging loosely off it,...
