A dark corner of the room
With a bottle of vodka
And Adele on repeat -
Cliché, I know,
But I find it hard
To be innovative
When my heart is broken.
I find myself wishing
That I could trap you
Inside of me
And never let you go
To hold on to you
Through high and low.
I dream of you
And when I'm sober
I realize they're just dreams.
And I find myself wondering
If you ever really loved me
Or if I was just another fish in the sea
Trapped helplessly in your charm.
And sometimes I regret even looking at you
Thinking you'd care for me
Making a fool out of myself.
And sometimes I don't care
I don't care about my broken heart
For once it had been whole
And the memories still linger
Secrets of your mysterious self, an
Obscure allure emanating from you
Urges me to dive into you and see you whole
Lures me in to captivate my soul and bind it to yours.
Alone on the roof,
Missing your warmth beside me .
A comet shoots across the empty sky;
My hand reaches out to grab it
So I can hold it and keep on wishing-
Wishing you were here
So I could wrap my arms around you,
Wishing you were here
To whisper in my ears,
Wishing you were here
So we could stare together
Beyond the dark horizon,
Wishing you were here
So we can gaze into each other's eyes
And say things a million words cannot.
But in a single moment
The comet is gone
Leaving the sky empty again, barren
Just like my heart.
Love is the light flutter in your heart
When you look at them.
It is the smile on your face
When you find them looking at you.
Love is the joy that lifts you up
When you share a minute with them.
Love is the tightness in your chest
When you see them with someone else.
Love is the silence on your lips
To protect their happiness.
Love is your silent tears
As you accept the truth
That they can never be yours.
Love is the comfort you find
In the warmth of that hug
You get for being a good friend.
Love is the care that you provide
Expecting naught in return.
Love is a gallimaufry of all these emotions
An amalgamation of these feelings;
Still, love is a symphony
A mélange of poignant passions;
We were all painters once
Filling away our dreams with bright and vivid colours
Until one day life decided to splash a shade of grey
All over the canvas.
And we all were dancers
Dancing away on the clouds
Higher and higher where nothing could touch us
Until one day life pushed us from cloud nine
And we fell onto the stone hard reality.
And we were lovers too
Falling in love
All over again and again
With everything innocent and beautiful
Until our hearts were ripped open
And we bled out all our emotions.
While others thought it was growing up
We knew we were shrinking
Curling up into tiny balls
A dark side of us that we're afraid to let out
Afraid to disappoint what we resent.
And sometimes w...
Home is where the heart is
But my heart is shattered
And all the pieces scattered
I tried to get on the wings of the wind
And look for it among the clouds
I cried to the ocean to swallow me
Maybe an oyster has hidden my heart inside it
I wanted to hold on to a ray of light
And travel at its infinite speed
Into the unknown dark realms
To see if my heart was there
The clouds heard me and opened up
But my heart wasn't in the downpour
The fish of the sea swam all over for me
Yet they had no clue where my heart was
And the inquisitor of the infinite realms
Couldn't tell where my heart had disappeared
And hence here I remain
Alone and waiting
Heartless and thus homeless.
Hours in the shower
Spent thinking what to write
I want to write a poem about you
A song about us
And I come up with nothing.
Writer's block, they say,
It happens to everyone.
Is that the reason why
I don't have any words to say about you?
Every thought about you was a poem to me
All I see now is a huge void
With you on the other side
Staring back at me.
If this space is love,
Our love might just be
The greatest of all.
You love sex and cigarettes,
I love coke and whiskey.
You've burnt away our love
Like that cigarette in your hand
And I drown myself in drink
Just to keep myself sane -
And all that remains is the lust in our bodies.
Our love is precious,
It's okay if you don't want to hold my gaze
Just look away
I'll understand if you don't want to hold my hand
Just let go
It's okay if you want to ignore my tears
Just leave me alone
It's okay if you don't want to accept me
Just push me away
It's okay if you don't want to remember our love
Just let it go
Darling I'll understand if you want to do any of this
I'll just put on my fallen facade
And say everything's alright
Just like before.
#Skylark Challenge 177
When I think
I can't make it through the night
You are there for me.
Your fresh aroma
The taste of your sweet bitterness
Keeps me going -
Letter by letter,
Word by word.
I pray our story is one
That never will end.
So tell me
Will you be my valentine?
#Skylark challenge 176
As I began walking
Through the green fields -
Peaceful and calm,
I never guessed once
That it would be
The path to my destruction.
I never once thought
My once blank heart
Would become a canvas
Of your cruelty,
A book of fear and sorrow -
Each page bleeding
From the scars you inflicted.
As I now listen
Into the silence of the night
I am reminded
Of my mute and dumb heart
That once used to sing of our love.
And as I look at the tough bark
Of the mighty trees
That covers the soft wood beneath,
I am reminded of
The facade I now put up
To cover my fragile, shattered soul.
Always around you
But still can't hold you in my arms
Afraid of what people would say
Afraid of what you would say
I'm completely hopeless
Yet I keep dreaming about us
Am I so deluded
That I think it's going to work between us?
Am I so arrogant
That I cannot accept that we cannot be together?
Am I so far from reality
That I cannot see the truth that's right in front of me?
What is wrong with me?
Laying limp on my bed
Struggling to fall asleep
Yet I cannot
With questions screaming inside
Tears streaming down
And I pick up my phone
To put down a second sad story for the night
Is it me or is it just life?
Does every feeling of mine have a reason
Or am I just making up reasons fo...
Still feels like yesterday
When I was head over heels
in love with you
Still feels like yesterday
Those nights we spent
cuddled up against each other
warm and content
Still feels like yesterday
How my heart was broken
when you found someone new
and left me here alone
I longed for you
I wanted you to fly
back to me
But you didn't want to
I stopped remembering you
I stopped picturing you
in everything I saw
I stopped loving you
You came back to me
saying you wanted me
that you still love me.
Yesterday is gone
So turn around my friend
Go your own way
For I no longer need you
So long old friend
For I'm never seeing you again.
Will you jump into the ocean with me
Knowing that I will drown you?
Will you walk into the flames with me
Knowing you will burn?
Will you fly to the other end with me
Knowing you'll have nothing but misery?
Will you embrace darkness for me
Knowing you may never see the light again?
Will fall into the abyss with me
Knowing you may never rise again?
Will you look right into my eyes
And tell me you love me?
"Close your eyes! I've got a surprise for you. Walk with me," her mother said. She took her daughters hand and together they walked outside. "Now open them," she said.
And when she opened her eyes, she gave a stifled cry and tears started streaming down her face. She ran forward and hugged her girlfriend who was standing there with a ring in her hands (now fiancé). When she turned back worried, her mother said "I'm sorry my dear for not understanding early that love is love. You are free to love."
I love the strong winds
Blowing everything away
Because it reminds me
how you threw me off my feet.
I love the rain
Running against my skin
Because it reminds me of your gentle touch.
I love the sea and its violent spray
Because it reminds of your passion.
I love the bolts of lightning
They remind me how I feel
when you press your lips to mine.
I love the sound of distant thunder
It reminds me how you sound
when you whisper in my ear.
Altogether I love the storm
It reminds me of my heart -
how it leaps and swirls and dances
It reminds me of your presence -
how it unsettles my calm soul.
And how the air after
a touch of the storm
becomes tenfold beautiful -
your touch washes my soul
You're the setting sun
And I the rising moon
Sharing a short moment
Of evening twilight
With the silent sea
A sad witness
Of our forbidden love.
Sitting side by side
Yet we are miles apart.
I put my hand in yours
And you don't feel a thing.
I look into your eyes
All I find is a vast emptiness.
I put my lips to your cheek
And all I feel is a bitter coldness.
It's like our love has left us
And we are oceans apart.
In place of a blazing fire
All we have left is ashes and ice.
Collapsing into bed
Because the the heart is too heavy to let me stand.
Eyes closed, eyelids quivering
The dams I built long ago
Can no longer hold back this flood of tears.
Maybe the veins in my head will burst
If I try to stop myself any longer.
Maybe I should just let go
Maybe I should open my floodgates.
I look around for a shoulder to support me-
I find many -
Those that held me during my past hard times.
But now, will they still be there
After this confession I have to make?
Will they be able to face the truth?
WILL I be able to face the truth?
Or have I fallen for my own lies just like they have,
Am I living in a lie I desperately want to believe?
Is there someone who I can really tru...
"Go where your dreams take you"
What if I don't want to dream?
What if I choose to stay numb,
Lost in the darkness?
What if I say my dreams can take me
But I choose not to follow?
And that my path will end up in a sad disaster?
"Go where your dreams take you" they say.
But how many did really dream
In this sad, sad world?
How many did feed on the dreams of others,
Without a dream of their own?
And how many chose to willingly paralyse their minds
Because they didn't dare to dream?
And how many among those few who did dream
Were too afraid and let their dreams rot?
Yes, I'm afraid to dream,
I'm afraid to fly,
I'm afraid to be free.
And so I submit myself to bondage-
Throat strangled and wings c...
How come I dream of you in the night and receive your call the next morning? Is it just a coincidence or is it because our hearts are beating on to the same rhythm?
"She hurt me. She broke my heart"
"Yeah. But now she's asking my forgiveness. She's realised her mistake"
So... What did you say?
"I didn't say anything. I don't want her to get away from this that easily. I want revenge."
So you want to break her heart now?
But don't you love her?
"I do. But..."
There are no buts in love. Love is all about forgiveness and reconciliation. If you can't forgive her, who will? Isn't it natural that she made a mistake? Isn't she just human? How many times had you hurt her and had been forgiven? Love is not a competition where you try to be ahead of one another, it is being together- for one another, to hold one another from falling, to me...
*SHOWER YOUR LOVE*
My heart was a garden full of bloom
Your love was the stream
When I was sinking into the night's gloom
Your face was my fairy dream.
You were the ocean
I was the shore
You were my daily portion
We were lovers from an untold lore.
I never dreamt of that fateful day
The day when the stream ran dry
I in hopeless mourning lay
When you bade me good bye.
Would the ocean ebb away from the shore?
Would the story of our love be left untold?
Would you leave me stranded at your door?
Would you let my heart die in the cold?
When I see the raindrops kissing the ground
The sweet petrichor filling my senses
Your sweet memories my thoughts surround
And I can't h...
As she walked through the centre of New York she noticed a man playing his guitar. She walked past him. But when he looked up, their eyes met and she stopped walking. She couldn't move. "It can't be!" she thought "he had died long ago". And her memories came back to her in flashes. She could recall only a few things about that night- the fire and the terror and the both of them trying to escape. But then she didn't know what happened. The next thing she knew was that she was alone, at a distance from the house. She could see the flames rising and the thick black smoke. She decided it couldn't be him. But then he started singing. "That song! Impossible!" They wrote the song together and no one...
