Unforgotten

Never wholly off my mind, you are unspoken in conversations and unravelled in dreams.Interred are the warm embraces and soft kisses, a sedated evanescence. What’s imprinted are the torn fabrics of a web spun out of indifference, lust and careless affection. Etched on the stony surfaces of a scarred heart, a reminder of treasure born…

Casualty

There was not any calm after the storm Only a night following every daylight Each morning dimmed a little more Each night turned a little darker Sleep ended but not the nightmares No more hopes in dreams No more dreams in fantasies Only variants of ghosts Some less scarier than the rest Devised by reality…

Echoes

Happy words, pretty words and Everything cheery Deftly tossed asidePerhaps had the ink dried Before the writing vanished A sliver of hope, here be,To avert their evanescence Now it’s too late, for they areDispersed and dissipated As ash on a riverbank No trace of them anywhere Not a bit of burnt scent left Nor a…

Cross over

I had hoped to make it through Sand blasting into my eyes Wheezing and aching through the storm Across the the smouldering wreck To live past distress when all is done I had hoped to make it through Another day, another night Tossing and turning every wakeful hour Pulling out of the pit of hell…

Dismissal

None of her friends could empathize For none had loved so hard and lost Few had fleeting flings While others had broken strings Meaning little while they lasted and nothing when parted Some had rings on their mates and beginnings of forevers in definite dates While all she had were blurs of memories and hopes…

Time loop

And then I realised we are stuck in a never ending cycle of chasmic infatuation and bitter, cold impassivity. There are fragments of love floating in between, ashes in the wind, gone by before you could get a real glimpse. Shards of hate scrape over our skin, when we are too caught up inside our…

Breathless

Sometimes the words get stuck in my throatThey choke me, cut my air offMake my eyes blur and mouth taste like acidThen my brain kicks into action…My breathing slows down and I count every single one,Grateful, I could still do that. And when I count to ten, my lids shut down. I crave that suffocation…

Pause

The ache that never goes awayThe emptiness that is ever presentThe coldness beneath the surfaceI have the urge to cry, kick and screamYet, I don’t let myself fall too deepI find myself staring at walls and facesPeople who talk, laugh, love and liveI’m watching life move fast in frontAnd I realise, standing still is only…

Variables of regret

There are things, over which we have no control overThe mistakes, the mishaps,The memories of them.Also there are things you have no idea aboutLike the happiness waiting at the next bend,The little things we have in life which we usually take for granted,Almost everything that we overlook. The good things fade easilyA smile, a laugh,…

This time

I wanna fall in love againBeneath the lustrous moonWishing on falling starsTo realize each other’s dreams. I wanna fall in love againNot madly or crazilyBut holding hands throughThe darkest nights of our minds. I wanna fall in love againEvading webs of frailty,And exist for eternitiesWithout waiting for it all to fall apart. I wanna fall…
