Breathe

Look, I am running again In an endless loop of night and day All of this makes me anxious So I'm running again Chasing a melody That reminds me of places I have only been in my dreams Of nostalgia and imagined peace Again, I go through the motions Follow the pattern Call it a [...]

Fever Dream

She was his fever dream, his ruination, his damnation, his Annalise. He stole her in the night, held her captive in his ivory tower. After all, she was his little star and he wanted to spend all his eternity with her. With her aquamarine eyes, her cheeks glowing a delightful shade of pink, her lips [...]

Mary and Max

In new city, homesick, lost and absolutely closed off and shy, I started spending way too much time in the library. I would read, doze off or just browse internet, to say I was lonely is an understatement, I was hopelessly forlorn. Similar to Mary and Max, I made a very aged yet intellectual friend. [...]

Silly

"Love is what we are born with, Fear is what we have learned" -Marianne Williamson Fear, that is all there is to it. An all encompassing fear. Fear that the mind rules the heart more than it should. Fear of love that makes you cut pieces of yourself to fit their ideal, fear of never [...]

These feelings are hard to find!

We were on cusp of meeting the world, two lonely kids facing the sun with their shadows falling behind them Our different perspective warred with each other but also came together as a beautiful amalgamation of contradictory thoughts co-existing and nurturing each other. Never Imposing, Never cruel! I saw cosmos through his eyes, in its [...]

This Benign Sickness

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 [...]

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 [...]

Those Wilted Blossoms!

Those windswept brown curls falling gently in your eyes, that sweet boyish smile capturing my attention. Unbeknownst to you, I couldn't help but wonder how well you'll complement me. Your self-assured silent calm and my anxious klutziness, Your worldliness and my dream world. Your haphazard curls and my proper straight hair, telling opposite story. I [...]
