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 IContinue reading “Weakening”

Moon & Dreams

The moon is a beautiful shade tonight, do you see it fall over that distant darkness? It’s like she’s offering her shoulders in prayer- A prayer that becomes our long lost wish An admixture of paperweight dreams, My mind and my thoughts keep me running I’m always on my feet, looking for answers that paintContinue reading “Moon & Dreams”

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 elixirContinue reading “Curtains”

Staircase to Earth

Hell. All this time, he spoke to me in varied hues of oranges and reds. He whispered in flames that burned my head, he moved about in a curfew that swept my need for fresh air. I am a tree, with a broken heart carved on my stomach. The knots of insomnia tighten around myContinue reading “Staircase to Earth”

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.

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 momentContinue reading “Inertia”

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,Continue reading “The Mirror”

Apprehensions Regarding Bharat.

Hey y’all! About 2 months ago I mentioned in one of my posts that I was going to talk about my apprehensions on moving to India. So, here it goes. 1. Nostalgia. I don’t think there’s a way to avoid this. Every minute I breathe, eat, or talk there’s going to be an inevitable waveContinue reading “Apprehensions Regarding Bharat.”

In My Mind

Compliments -I’ve always loathed them, I mean, can’t we just keep quiet? Even Pablo Neruda would agree, After all ‘Keeping Quiet’ was his dream. Or was it just wordplay to soothe the senses and brighten perspectives? It’s funny how I sugarcoat depression, Making it taste like candy just so I can forget what self-hate doesContinue reading “In My Mind”
