I have come a long way

For all the friends who turned strangers and Strangers who remained strangers, I’ve come a long way From the uncertain, innocent, naive girl into The strong, unafraid woman who never gives up, I’ve come a long way From being physically present and mentally elsewhere, To being mentally present and physically elsewhere, I’ve come a long…

Sugar layers

Candy machines are under rated, and our love story began with it. Gummies, sugar jelly, and everything sugarcoated Created piece by piece with The best ingredients The best colors Each of them looked beautiful in the beholder’s eye Until tasted, bitter or sweet It was him and I One in a billion chances and life…

Love yourself

A statement we’ve probably heard right from the moment we hit puberty, until the day we still have time to concretize our personalities. The irony is that while the world is so visually driven, “loving yourself” trickles down to the point of loving all those aspects of yourself that you can¬†see.¬†Unimpressed? That is mostly what…

How pure

“What’s the hardest thing you’ve had to do?” Moving on from what was left “What’s the diificulty in that?” To move on from the bitterness you were left with As hard it is to erase the good times It gets doubly difficult to go back Only to see the world the same again Only to…

Quick sand

Meeting you amidst the chaos Was my perfect timing You prove that there ought Sunshine at the end of every tunnel Rules would just harden My quick sand Never letting you go Cause baby, it hurts to cut through A part of your own We may surpass perfection We may be the best imperfect Even…

Restricted emotion

It’s funny when life restricts you Of things that are innate Of things that can save Of people that can heal Situations are similar We all crave the same But when life restricts you It’s funny how she says karma While you wipe pearls off Saying, life. I may not be the same But I…

Strange Infinity.

He, a stranger Me, my own mystery. Flesh destined to seek Way before souls crossed paths But we knew; Every second that our mortality merged, We had known each other. Not for years, But lifetimes, to be precise. Magic could be short of words And poetry short of tricks. Eyes deep enough, I could watch…

Significance of the anchor

The anchor holds even the toughest, biggest, heaviest ship in place, rooted to its place of halt. Similarly our caregivers, tend to hold us, the fearless, fierce, non-conformist generation of their lineage together, strengthening our roots. It may get as subjective as it comes, but the foundation always remains the same. Love. Nothing great was…

Beautiful chaos

There comes a day When humanity limits to spirit And not flesh When mankind, gets a lot lesser About “man” or “woman”. More about life or corpse When beautiful is no longer Peaceful and calm And ugly, no longer Derrogatory For I once met a soul. Beautiful was his mind Chaos it breathed. Peace it…

Candles

They flickered, they did A spark was all it took. Molten wax, my skin wailed Orange flames, my eyes searched Infinite depths.   Flickers fickle with the way They shine Sometimes a slight, Sometimes, wildfire   They shined, they did Wood held no resistance Cloth, the most fragile And skin, The least protected   Fire…

Make me a blessing

This flesh was granted Not for the satisfactions that reach The depths of the skin But, to shelter the flayed   This blood was given Not for mere transportations of life But to pour some into The dying   This breath was given Not to breathe and let go when done But to reason a…

Quite tears

These sobs of quite hope Nights of invisible hope Create the new soul You deserved since the second The clouds decided to weep Over the ungrateful earth The rainbow painted The dark, selfish sky   The soul you longed for Is in its process of destruction and Growth   But baby, I’d come back Come…
