Someone oblivious of her worth

The epitome of innocence and thoughtfulness she is, so kind even to those who don’t deserve her at all, so considerate of others’ feelings and opinions, so irritating that I hate her sometimes, so annoying that I wish murder wasn’t a crime. Not so confident, always doubtful of herself, never really sure, always changing her…

Put me right back to sleep

Middle of the night, I wake up, from a nightmare I don’t even recall. Miles away, you’re awake too, busy in your work like always. You’re so far away from me, when I want you here beside me, to hold me and comfort me, to put me right back to sleep. Even when you’re so…

My Safe Zone

I’ve been waiting for a long time for you to come back to me, I’ve been thinking a lot about where it all went wrong. You had my heart ever since I first saw you when we were 12, until you won it all over overwhelmingly and completely. You were always there when I used…

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…

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…

Unresolved mess

These past few months, I haven’t been myself. I met some people, who made me aware of parts of me which I myself wasn’t aware of. But being the person that I am, I messed up, again, even with them. I’m sorry, for how I left things, unresolved, between us. I want to talk and…

The Angels of My Life

When all my insecurities come crashing down on me, it’s you two who make me feel safe. When nothing’s going right and everything’s a mess, it’s you two who stand by me. When tears fill my eyes and guilt consumes my heart, it’s you two who support me. When the whole world goes against me,…

Three Swans

We’re the three Swans, each beautiful in our own way. We don’t need no one as long as we stand together; We’re all we need. We live in each other, for each other; We’re alive when we’re together. Our lives intertwined with each other to the extent that we feel each other’s ups and downs….

Morning Dew

  Today is one of those days when I feel  like it’s better to not exist. With tearful eyes and a heavy heart, I call you. Your caller tune itself gives my heart some peace. Desperate to hear your voice, I wait for you to pick up the phone. Your voice is like a soothing…

I’m all yours

  “I don’t love him,” I kept saying to everyone, even to myself. “We’re just friends,” I kept repeating but, no one believed me, not even me.   That day when nothing was going right, when we were miles apart. I was in my home, you on your rooftop. The moon smiled upon us knowing…
