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…

Default

It hurts like the first timeThe very first time whenMy messages went unansweredCalls unreturned andThe waiting never endedEvery single timeIt hurts like the very first time. Few days of blissFew nights of loveContinuous as the loops of timeWith impending distress,Desperations and disappointmentsEvery single timeIt hurts like the very first time.

Guilty Pleasure

She was given naught but a taste so sweetOf needs met and cravings filledBitter it changed, which she learned to loveAn unlikely flavour for the love yearned. She dreamt of flowers and heartsSugary treats and joyful laughsLong walks, holding handsDinner from cardboard boxesAction movies and buttery popcornMaking out to Ed Sheeran on that worn-out, old…

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…
