Life

Isn’t it strange how we don’t even notice the moon go down on her knees and the sun coming up with its golden stories that the birds chirp across trees and windows and balconies? Isn’t it strange how some flowers bloom today and some wither away simply because it’s not their season? Maybe this strangeness […]

Weakening

Teal skies peeling off their skin Their mouth is dripping with diamonds They smell like paradise under the yellow sun The chair is paper, it crumbles beneath my weight My hair tastes of wood Orange juice splattered across the counter A broken hand caressing the flower vase The floor is water and I slip I […]

Curtains

A perennial shower of peace spreads across my chest Joy crawls over my body like sticky ants Their sweet blood infuses with mine I hear a song these curtains muse~ They’ve been watching me curl up and inside, They’ve been learning my silent wish; A lily settles upon my lashes My fingers extract the elixir […]

The Doomed Hero

Harmachis The name that spells doom Men bowing their heads low To a woman’s whims Forgetting the everlasting fruit Mother Isis promises Upon the cursed tongues Her name appears in times of Despair Harmachis The name that speaks of hell And a deathless punishment From the curves of she, who Neither grieves nor loves, Harmachis […]

Open Up

When they say, ‘Open up!’ what I see is the picture of my heart running like a wild goose in a jungle of confusion. It often steps in a puddle of familiarity but slowly, that very puddle begins to wet its feathers in droplets of shame. How could I’ve been so reckless? Did they really […]

This time, it was different and different is not always good however this year has to be one of those exceptional ones where nothing great happens but you still […]

The Cure

Gold like honey dripping from The tip of your tongue Willfully made a way Down my throat Through the Chipped lips That never Seemed to Bother you. Your enigmatic daisies still Sit intact, crowning my Strands like precious Gems favored upon An ocean of Black. The fragility encompassing Each beat of my heart is Afresh […]

Exposed

In its internment, My heart was on Its knees, ever- Ready to serve The master’s Command. Be it burying myself under A mountain of responsibility Or diving in an ocean that Was never enough to Satiate your thirst for Perfection, I had my mind set On fulfilling your Wishes before They had to Travel up […]

Inertia

Purple curtains drape Windows that are shut So tight not even air Gets through, Aphixiated Anticipated Assimilated I stare at a wall For hours on end. I’m laughing now, Like a child he says Because I bob my head Back and fourth as fits Of laughter distort my Vision. I’m happy, Drowning in this moment […]

The Mirror

They weren’t eyes, They were Windows to you; A glimpse of my Secrets. No matter how hard I tried, Pain had a way of making Itself evident through the Brown hues fading into The morbid blackness Hovering upon my Existence. They’re tainted pink & purple, But exhaustion is always Crystal clear. Didn’t you ever feel, […]
