embers of the night

I have locked my actual self, In the realms of the night sky; Upon the distant stars, Burning' bright through the coal clouds, Distant yet scintillating, Fairy dust in my eyes, at times, Sparking my darkest nights Sometimes they fall like angels, Burn into my skin and scar; Beautifully macabre in their form, Marking their...

Eyes: Yours and Mine

I saw a mirror in your eyes Stumbling in was paradise A belief of love; capsuled with forever Beckoned me and I got carried away And there it was the hidden chest Forbidden from all the rest Opening it was crashing down In a deep stumbling mess, I drowned Like a moth is to flame...

Denying Waves

I feel the waves call out to me The dark and blue oblivion Made of hues colourless Perfect for blackened souls Maybe being submerged won't be too bad Yet a dive was all I dared Controlling the numbing urge to let go Resemble the wild water lillies And yet look grotesque I hold my breath,... Continue Reading →

The Mirror

I peer through my glassy haze, At the identical girls, Trapped in the smoke of incertitude, Closed to being choked. One peers through with poignant eyes, With no more tears left to cry, Yet a willingness to change the mind, Of her divided self. I watch the other hurt herself, Believing she deserves no better.... Continue Reading →

~just between us~

Can we ever go back to what we, Used to be? Or are we done there? Never to return, watching memories burn Whitewashed photographs Reminding me our past And all the sunshine we emanated, When together, Growing the arcane meadows, Of our bond; Now they scorn, for I visit alone You’re lost; away from home... Continue Reading →

Her and Me

The night sky is arcanely deep An indelible grief it weaves Unimaginable, unconquerable, palpable The darkness creeps around her Forever swirls the broken melody Of cries, tears and screams All her dreams stand out of reach Out of sight is gaeity Standing before the mirror She glances beyond, past me Through my scars, my fears,... Continue Reading →

I’ll Be There

You walk past me Smiling as if nothing's wrong A weeping star Caught in the midst of storm And they don't realise That your cheeks are tired From wiping tears and faking smiles Tying yourself with a laugh That's threatening to come undone But you don't have to try so hard Don't need to put...

Death to Life

The pyre was set and ready As the sunflowers withered and died Making a way for me to tread Leading the way to raging flames That will burn my flesh, Consume me from within Endowing me with the desideratum Of living in this new world Guiding me to death And thus to vigor and life...

A Pledge On A Dream

I pledge fealty to a dream, That was seen along this flag A cloth imbibed with hope And tarnished with fear Bloodied by necessity Sworn to bravery Countless men, women Have grieved, fought, bled and died To keep our tattered dreams alive Not to glorify a symbol But defend an idea, an ideal Helping us...

Hi! I am back *sheepish waving*

Soooo, i disappeared again, didn't I? Um well, I had too much going on with academics and other stuff and blogging felt like something forced then. And blogging should be fun, right?

Flowers Speak

Blooming midst the salty breeze Every flower speaks to me Like maple leaves from the autumn tree Swaying swiftly, gaily free Moving in it's melody Dewy petals, and nectar sweet Pollen dispersed in the wind of sea Wildly growing under the maple tree The flowers dance with my feet And we speak and speak till...

Summer Haiku

So yeah, the title's pretty self-explanatory? This time I'm not following the usual meter for haikus. Hope you like it! With Sandy gleaming shells And the breeze in my hair I get lost in the sun Have a good day!!

Meet Me Whilst The Sun Sets

Meet me, my heart whilst the sun sets, And the cold night's still away; For soon the yellow-orange hues, To dismal dark, will give way; The warmth stolen from the sky, The small balls of fire arise; Yet not enough to thaw us both, And set our souls alight; Then, the clouds will trap the...

Notes From Me, To Me

Alone at the edge of the universe, Humming a tune unlearnt, unheard A melody of my own Stretches far, seeking home A soul to affect, a voice to compliment The notes sway and pray for a human shell Renounced, they bounce back off surfaces Not allowed to penetrate Still the wind carries them in whispers... Continue Reading →

Whispering Wind

I speak to you, the wind wafting in The one so paradoxical Cooling me down Yet you watch the city burn With rage, hate and envy Carrying the whispers of the devil Hearing the unheard And passing it as lies Or half-truths; even worse And there you still blow In the midst of blazes Meant...

The Face That Shone

Deep under the water Submerged but I never drown Suspended in a timely frown Yous and mes, all far away The moonlight stays up The halo far above A stairway of love awaits Alone and afraid, I can't climb it I am still searching for a face That shines through the blue Colours all my...

The Bird’s Swan Song

Stars Outshined and Parts Found

Under the moon, as she gazed at stars She found eyes gazing at her Unwaveringly, deeply, with pools of memories She raised her eyebrows at his trance He moved closer; eyes unflinching “I am gazing at your soul, At all the infinities you hold within Amongst the forced laughter I find a love so powerful...

A Lifetime Of Comets

Just a nerdy girl, with a sporty oneCatching comets and storing them in a stack of memoriesTheir minds synergised and melodies resonatedWalking along the path of growing upScared to lose, Scared to gainNot ready yet to accept the changePromising to always co-ordinate their feetEven if they lead to different destinationsA promise upon a comet, enough...

Then and Now

A taste of freedom To live and love the world A song I harboured That sand of dreamy lands and words A place with no expectations A place with no restrictions A place with just fixations A place which was my dramatisation A fantasy shattered Broken expectations One taste of reality Took all, it seemed...

Chasing Stars

The night sky is dark and deep Its tiny hearts glow as the world sleeps "Those are fairy dust", the little girl said "Lets collect them", said Bill "They are right there, on the hill" Just after dinner, the climbed up the mound And leapt for the moon, off the ground Their fingers touched just...

My Battleground

There is no war greater than The one going on in my own mindThe spear of my fears piercingMy own flesh and yet Forcing the blood to stay in my veinsThe swords of insecurities areCutting down the dreams perched on wingsThe shield of acceptance lies Shamefully aside, not even trying to protectI look in the...

She still remembered his last words to call as soon as the flight lands. She remembered his warm hug, how his arms felt against her small frame.

Roads to Me

I was walking forward in the quaint highway As I thought of the roads left back A sudden thought gripped me, To experience what I had experienced; to look back There was I again, in the old corridoor Shy, timid, without a sense of dignity Smiling at everyone, bawling when bullied Palpable without without capability...

I sit there, Staring off into the distance.

Everyone says, don’t care People always and come and go But, how can I stop thinking about someone Who has been inside me, forever, who left me alone? How can I forget someone, Who has been with me since I know of? What can I do to forget my own past? How can I forget... Continue Reading →

A Forbidden Room

Photo by Kristina Paukshtite on How nice it would be to have, A room inside our minds Where I could stash my thoughts, my memories That I don't want to rewind The swirl of consecutive broken melodies That my brain somehow relives Stay with me, out of control A refused gift they give If...

Poem for Myself

Our Beloved Classroom

Alone or Lonely?

I tried explaining them why I am sad. Nothing came out. Perhaps I didn't understand it myself. And that's when they all start talking, saying I am not alone.

Bullet Tears

To Be Vulnerable

The First Step
