A Beautiful Piece of Art

When asked, she smiles and says, “I’m okay, thank you, good day”. Half moon circles adorn her wrist, hidden under the long sleeves of her tees. Dark circles under her eyes, concealed by a lavish amount of make up. Pain in her smile disguised into beautiful words. Emptiness in her heart veiled through a beautiful…

Good for nothing

Easy for you to say that I am good for nothing. Just because I’m of no use to you, just because I don’t like the things that you do, just because I am not aware of something that you’re interested in, you label me as ‘good for nothing’. Now let me tell you what I…

A Soul stronger than ever before

We were a wretched mess, hanging on by a wafer thin thread, clinging onto little moments of happiness. And when that thread broke, we fell apart and I was left alone, constantly thinking of where it all went wrong. Then I hit my lowest last year, suffocating beneath all that pain, kept fighting for fresh…

Blur and Chaos

Colors blur and I can’t make one out from other, images pass through my mind of moments past, words mix and all I can hear is madness. I’m trying to think straight, to see through all these blurry images, to focus on one word, on one voice. Hands shaking, head pounding, heart beating faster than…

Tell me how

How am I supposed to look at you and not smile? How can I ever see you being so oblivious of my love for you and not be amused by your foolishness? How can I ever be around you and not feel that ache of longing for your acceptance? How can I ever see you…

Can’t we?

Can’t we just be and still agree to be in peace? P.S.- Why are humans so prone to anger and violence? Why can’t we all just live and let others live in peace? How hard can it be after all, to not pass our unsolicited opinions onto everyone else? Always commenting on someone else’s body,…

Quote #16

So many thoughts go through my mind at a rate even faster than my mind is capable of handling, Colors blur into each other and I can’t make one out from another. It’s time to let go, to let this chaos take over. P.S.- Do you relate with this? What did this quote make you…

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…

Please just stay

There are people who love me, whom I am so grateful to have, and yet, even they can’t get through to me, I can’t let even them in. It’s so hot, and so dark even though the light’s on, I’m sweating and crying and shaking, and I can’t find an escape. I splash water on…

Why was I never enough for you?

Why was I never enough for you? I try to keep myself busy and to not think about you, but I can’t help it. I can’t stop thinking about the last time that I saw you. I still remember how it felt standing on that platform all alone, watching your train slowly go away, while…
