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…

Awaiting her monsoon…

She sat by the window, with a glass of whiskey in hand and a mind blank, watching the rain pour, through the window of her study. The violent downpour, with just enough thunder to lightly rattle the window-sills, kept her from drowning herself in books. As she watched the rain drops dribble along the window…

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…

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…

The good things fade easilyA smile, a laugh,…

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…

Memories

Her smile, bright and infectious The twinkle in her eyes She lost them both And all that was left was loath She did loathe, not him But herself For it was her heart that denied her Her pride Her pride that mattered so much Meant so little to someone Who mattered as much And so…

Storms and Flames

The veil she wore, dark and torn Reveal how many times She’s been re-born The scars she has under Always made her ponder If she will ever be beautiful enough Or someone worthy enough Oh, What is a soul without scars! Oh, What is a soul without some darkness! The darkness in her Brightened the…
