You didn’t let go of me

You kept telling me to go back, that I shouldn’t be out here, in this wilderness, that it wasn’t safe. And yet, contradictory to your words, you didn’t let go of my hand, you didn’t let go of me. You held onto me as if I was the very gravity that pulled you to the…

I wish we had more time

The inevitability of what’s to come, makes me feel so helpless. I know that I can’t and that I shouldn’t, and that I have no right, to stop you from going. A part of me wants you to go back, far away from all this cynicism. However, the other part of me, the part that…

These little moments of us

There are days when I go on happily, only because I know that miles away, there’s someone who loves me so faithfully. And yet, there are some days, when being aware of this fact just doesn’t feel enough. These are the days when this distance mocks me, and laughs at me. Today is one of…

I know I shouldn’t

I know that we’re just delaying the inevitable, and that you’ll have to leave soon. I know that I should be ready and prepared and used to it, by now. But I still feel like the air has been sucked out of my lungs at the very mention of you going away. I know that…

A forever with you

Your hand in mine, my head on your shoulder, your other arm on my waist, holding me close to you. The light just enough to light up your face, at this beautiful break of dawn, that’s bearing the witness to something so special between us. No amount of time feels enough, when spent with you….

From Suffocation to Contentment

Suffocating it was, to not be able to say what I really wanted you to know. Maddening it was, to keep pretending to be okay with everything. Relieved I am, when on the second day, I told you that I need time. Content I am, now that you know, exactly what I want and need….

What if?

What if I open my heart up to you? Would you embrace it, or would you demolish the leftover pieces, just like everyone else did? Would you accept its faults and insecurities, along with its kindness and compassion, or would you take advantage of its innocence, and then leave me to fend for myself? Would…

Dear Stranger

Dear Stranger, our meeting was a pure coincidence. Started with emails, continued with texts. Then, the calls started, and the late night video calls followed. From my first relationship to my first ever heartbreak, you’ve been with me, through them all. You’re annoying sometimes, but you never let my smile falter. Even though we’ve never…

Silver Lining to My Dark Cloud

Falling… but I don’t want to fall. Waiting… I don’t know how long I can wait. Praying… All my prayers have you. Trying… To be worthy of you. Silver lining… I hope I am to your dark cloud, as you are to mine. P.S.- What did you think of this poem? Share your thoughts below!

Say that you don’t love me

Please don’t pretend. I can’t handle anymore pretension. Just be real, even if it is bound to hurt me like hell. Please don’t say that you love me when you don’t. Please don’t comfort me, only to make yourself feel a bit good about yourself. Please don’t feel guilty for what you feel. ‘Cause I…
