    Writer's block!

    Read More

    Again I slept,
    to be awake in my dreams
    to be away from the nightmares,
    nightmares of the days that I've been living!
    The clock ticks through my head,
    but my hours don't pass
    the day goes around
    goes around just to hang me dry
    full of silent sobs and forbidden cry.
    I think and stare at the pen
    only to be able to hold it,
    just to hold it against the paper
    indicating my words and I are still together.
    But, I fail and I fall hard
    I still can't put the hold,
    the iteration goes on and on
    and I'm trapped under the shadow of the sun.
    so I slept again,
    with handicapped thoughts
    with a hope to write like before
    After I wake up tomorrow.

    Someone stole my phone.

    Read More

    One smoggy night,
    After 3 years 8 months and 15 days approx
    Someone stole you away;
    And I lost us.
    I believe that I will move on,
    like I did in the past
    As it wasn't my first time;
    and this ain't definitely my last.
    They sympathised me saying,
    The grieve will be less in some days
    When I'll have the new one;
    And start loving in different ways.
    I know I'll get over
    But what about the half written,
    Half written poetry on your notes?
    And what about the archive convos?
    I guess with the new one, I'll feel better
    But all of this won't be the same;
    Not like before!
    Cause this isn't known that
    all the moving on happened,
    Because before,  it stopped working;
    not because it was stolen.
    Now they say I'm overreacting,
    Saying, "chill! It was just an old phone."

    The months pass to make it a year
    But, you December!
    You're like a roller coaster
    You taught me,
    The worst drills a hole
    While, the best is forgotten;
    I sob out being lost
    And being loved is something I ignore.
    You've seen
    My tears inking the words
    to how I've love and what I've lost
    How happy I was being his apostrophe,
    Cause I never became his full stop.
    The buried secrets cry for help,
    As I dig in deep
    This year, I had great times
    Yet, all I remember standing on the cliff.
    On this very last day
    I don't know what I'll be writing
    Next year, next term!
    But hope to see you again
    With some smile and self love.

    I crushed my feelings hard
    Rolled with my dairy's paper
    Lighted it,
    With the last poetry I wrote.
    Took the first drag,
    To smother it inside
    I sipped some of our old talks.
    The next puffs went out
    Right through my lungs,
    Does it make me high?
    Oh, you wish!
    It made just made you vanish.

    Today, I met a stranger
    Who wore flip-flops over socks.
    At first I was crumbled inside
    Then we talked and started to vibe.
    I don't know when the frequency matched!
    The momos or the tea stall
    May be the walk in the aisle worked.
    One word led to other
    As He shared some of his stories
    While I told some from my territory
    I giggled he laughed,
    And in the end
    we got back where I'm staying at.
    It felt so good after a while
    Cause I met a stranger today
    Who's eyes got cover by his smile.

    My head makes up to your nose
    You look down while I keep my chin up
    I'm five three and you're five nine
    I love how our eyes meet in between.
    We met through screen and talked
    Strangers to love interests,
    When you held my hand on the movie date
    My heart was ready to jump out of my chest
    I felt the current of your tinge
    Honestly, I went weak in my knees.
    I'll always remember
    The game night,laying side by side
    We talked a lil less, we just vibed
    And the peck that I call our first
    How you whispered "I love you"
    And I didn't say it back.
    It'll always be my favourite
    How the whole night we just roamed
    Hand in hand, step to step along.
    How your shoulders jump with music
    How our t-shirts match in sync.
    How our weird selfies make your eyes light up
    How you just listen to my tantrums.
    How your phone lights up my phone
    How we just keep looking in the video calls.
    I don't know what the future holds
    But with you, I love the way it unfolds

    You said "hold me!",
    As if I matter to You
    Like there's still something left,
    Some thing left to give in too.
    You acted so real,
    As if I was your need
    Like I was the medicine,
    The medicine in your pain indeed.
    You worked up,
    As if you fear losing us
    Like we were ever a thing,
    A thing that never existed in time being.
    You wanted me out of lust
    chose me cause you felt alone,
    Talked to me cause I was delusional
    Missed me cause you were dumped
    And every once in awhile
    I gave in to call it love.

    Lust is transparent.

  • amaranthus 12w

    Have you ever heard
    the sound of breaking faith?
    Have you ever felt
    The hope walking in to absence?
    The moment when the waver is born
    Feasting on your heart and soul along,
    Making people in to memory
    Smirking into your misery;
    With a heavy heart when you cry
    Sometimes you name it jealousy
    And the other times you don't even try.
    Now I don't complain on breaking
    Or the sound of the faith or hope,
    For me they are long gone, kinda lost.
