New Year Dreams
This coming New Year
Brings with it scattered rose petals
Flowing tearfully in the air
And I dream
Of Love, picking them up one by one
To assemble them in some sort
Of unique bouquet,
Handing which to me
He would say,
Here, this is the love that you...Read More

Down the rabbit hole
I wake up every morning
Smile cemented to my face
Yet as always it evaporates
When I realize I am awake

Then I take my pills and brush my teeth
Applying cleanser to my face
Glancing in the mirror
Seeing nothing but vacant space

Eyes perpetually tired from...Read More

Dreams
I have only dreams- you were yesterdays,
how you invade my lonely heart and restless mind,
But, in this world you do not see me,
should i cry for you a river- fill the sea with shed tears?
Yet, I fear you would still...Read More

As the trees' shiver with delight
at the fresh autumn breeze,
The cycle of life has met 
his match with her.

Her cloak now adorned with all
the fallen acorns,
while gently the sun abates
for less to see.

Its sensual warmth no longer felt
by lovers in...Read More

To hurt :: Heroic stanza

It's like swimming against current to go
stopping natural flow of emotions;
Unrequited love hurts so much, we know
difficult to unlove; fully broken.

The pain of rejection pinches heart, grow
over days, can't forget, no more hoping.
Study says, it hurts her too, she mayn't...Read More

I can't wait
I can’t wait…
To no longer have the desire to submerge myself into you
Into those full chocolate lips that once spoke sweet nothings into my ears.
I can’t   wait...
Till I no longer wake mid-dream with tears running down my face
As...Read More

That Blue Dress
That blue dress
That keeps peeking at me
From under the pile of clothes
Amassed in my room
Seems to giggle at the sight of me!

Drenched in sweat,
Breathless out of crying so much,
My nose runny
And my will, dead,
I tell myself I must be looking

Love's Hatred
Was it your hatred that pushed me to run from you
In the very first place?
But then,
If you hated me so much,
Why did you come on Earth too?
If it was with the intention of saving my soul
From the murky swamps of...Read More

Visions Of You
I watch as a vision of you
forms from a warm mist
Echoing of your essence 
perception of reality persists

A torrent of sentiments 
Overwhelms with a heaviness
Outstretched I reach to you
Hands and minds steadiness 

Unknowing left in uncertainty 
Unsure what's real and...Read More

Perfect
Everything about you is perfect,
From your unruly hair,
To your cyan rhinestone eyes,
The way your smile curves,
And the reticent looks you serve.
How you say my name,
How your voice sparks a flame.
How you’re so unknowing,
The way your words keep me going.
The way...Read More

Accumulating Anger: My Love Was Serpentine
My love was serpentine to the touch
I can't quite explain it...the love of mine
Had gone away from my sight and such
I can quiz my mind to say otherwise, my bittersweet sugar wine…

Why am I extremely drunk off of utter fear?...Read More

Resigned
I lay in love
As would be a shoreline
Enjoying the ebb of your tides upon me
I lay in love
Rejoicing the lusty touch of your waves on me
Content, fully aware that you remain here
As each sunset promised the sunrise!

But your hatred surged...Read More

A broken heart I met
I once met a broken heart ,
It said it longed for love.
And it'd been yearning so long !
It said there's no God above.

 It wouldn't have to suffer.
And live a life that had ...Read More

As painful as your transparency is,
I appreciate the integrity you have found
to say this parting of shared habitations
has moved from temporary
to permanent
for you;
for us.

I would have preferred a resurrection
from temporary separation
to permanent mutual admiration,
but I trust you, too,
prefer this shared...Read More

This Love
If I bloom not in this love of ours,

Scarred by the sun during the day
And all icy by night!

Love
The plane sets sail across an ocean of stars..
Like a cat in the dark, you appear out of nowhere.
Just when I think she's through with me, there she is.
Beckoning for me to follow her,
Same as I've always done.

 the haunting melody with rhythmic interludes

So the lies can't get in
Pull pieces of my love
Through the shattered cracks
of my heart
Put them away
in a coffin
secured with locks
and chains.
Find all the pieces.
then maybe,
I can no longer be hurt.
Take all my expectations
and shred them
let the pieces fall 
to the ground.
Take all my disappointment
