This Benign Sickness

I stumbled upon the sickness inside my head, Far from perfect, My flaws were ugly, They weren't physical but went deeper and marred my soul. Tendency to hurt break and leave came easy My inability to feel remorse My inability to hold on My inability to bond Got me worried sick Some part of me [...]

A Winter Fall-out

Nuclear ash. As far as my eyes can see, it is dawn of perpetual nuclear winter. I close the window before the cold gust of wind could bring the abominable particles inside. My bones feel weary and brittle, it was nothing but a miracle of sort to have lived this long. To be able to [...]

That Thing Called Hope

It was one of those winter days when sun is blindingly bright and the air has that crisp quality to it signifying change of yet another season. I was back home early from the school and my fifteen year old self was locked out of the house. My restless self couldn't sit on the porch [...]

Anathema

Believed in all the cliched stories Dreamed a stale version of you Made you out of my calm and peace Painted you with colors of my dreams Dressed you in fancy of my lies That conformed to all my vice Yet, Fate didn't listen to these wishes That I put forth in the dark of [...]

Of Ink and Death

Night brought dreams and with these fever dreams came endless possibilities painted in the muted colors of silence and melancholy. While the world was draped in the heavy cloak of darkness, he wasn't dreaming.

Echoes Of Vanity

His was beauty ethereal Reflected to him in calm waters All he admired All he cared was beauty of his own reflection With a love not lost yet cursed with a voice that repeats She was a nymph mortal Immortalized by her own reiterations The fates erred played a cruel jest And her heart was [...]

Succubus

I searched for him in this labyrinthine dungeon. The walls were slick with moisture that seeped through the granite walls. The darkness was heavy and cloaked the whole corridor. Despite the heavy darkness, I could feel his heart pulsing and it served as a beacon that drew me towards him. I smiled, transforming into the [...]

Semper Fidelis

We are flesh and bone disintegrating into each other, Passing time or finding one another, I had lie and say that your eyes is the only thing I see, But this elastic heart has no interest in holding you to me. I'd lie and say that You are the only one I want, I'd lie [...]

Masquerade

Masquerade of broken dreams, Reflecting all those rejections and missed opportunities, Heavy heart and listless soul Solemn eyes and suspicious glares Hidden regrets and yearnings of days long gone by Masquerade of relentless time and charade of endless possibilities your solitude hiding you from world's eye While the devil inside you wants to be let [...]
