Liberty to be Free

I saw you today, in one of my dreams. And for the first time, my heart didn’t ache, like it always used to. I should have been an emotional wreck, but it barely affected me at all. And I guess, I’ll now take the liberty to declare myself, as officially free from the overwhelming feelings,…

The Breakdown

The day before yesterday, I had a breakdown. I thought I was better now. I thought I was over it all. Everything was going well. I was exceptionally happy and content with everything in my life. But then, it hit me like BAM! I couldn’t speak, couldn’t even comprehend what others were saying to me….

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…

A Promise I couldn’t keep

“Promises are made to be broken,” this is what you tell yourself, only to put yourself in a good light. “I’ll always be there for you.” Well, where are you now? “You’re the only one for me.” Like hell! “I love you.” A terrible, terrible lie. “I’ll never let anyone hurt you.” Well this one’s…

Your Name

Your name is still my favorite. Hearing your name still brings a smile on my face and yet, it also terrifies me. Hearing your name awakens the dormant chaos that resides deep within me, which sometimes seems big enough to consume me, to destroy me, and all I can do in that moment, is to…

One of Those Nights

Tonight is one of those nights when I just can’t get you out of my head. There’s only one thing that I want to ask you. How does it feel knowing that you destroyed the one thing that I had? Tonight is one of those nights when I just lie awake on my bed, and…

Let’s just stay together

Let’s get high and never come back down. Let’s go climb that mountain which I can see from my window, and carve our names out, on the bark of the tallest tree, with a heart around it. Let’s go out on a walk on roads with canopy, and take the long way back, and talk…

All black, no white

You were supposed to tell me that I’m worth it. But instead, you made me question my existence. You were supposed to teach me how to believe in myself. But instead, you made me hate myself. You were supposed to show me how beautiful life can be. But instead, you made me want to end…

Why this hatred, love?

Why is it that you hate me so much? Is it because I’m not pure, or is it because I’m not perfect like your other one? I’ve always longed for your love, like a stranded sailor in the cruel sea. But I always found myself returning empty handed, with a wounded heart. I am your…

You’re never there

A lot has happened… is still happening. And I wish that I could confide in you, but I can’t. ‘Cause you’re never there when I need you the most. P.S.- What did you think of this poem? Did you relate to it? Share your thoughts below!
