A Trippy Trip

You huff and puff,Then, gulp, gulp, gulp,Cigarettes and whiskey,Taking you up, up, up,You trip and you fall,Then, you slur, slur, slur,Tripping high, falling low,Everything’s slow, slow, slow,You think you rule,But world’s cruel, cruel, cruel,So, you huff and puff,Then, gulp, gulp, gulp,Cigarettes and whiskey,Taking you up, up, up.

April fool’s day? Life plays a prank on me every single day!

I’ve lost count of the number of times life has played a prank on me. But can I blame life or am I to be blamed? After all, I’m a last-moment person who likes doing stuff and making an important decision in the heat of a moment. I use emotions or intuition rather than logic…

Batteling loneliness to finding life long romance

When nobody held my hand, poetry held my heart. Amid the depth of pain and hoping for a change, words became my forever friend. I don’t even remember the exact year but what I know is that I wrote every time I felt a strong emotion and had nobody to express it to. I used…

Get well soon, kiddo!

I hear his scream,And I rush to his room,And I see him,Trying to move.  I offer him a hand,He shakes his head,As he tries to stand,And get out of the bed.  He winces at every step,And my heart just breaks,He lets out a yelp,And my insides crack.  I wish I could help,Take away all his…

Not worth loving

Free-spirited soul, happy & glee,What a beautiful lie she weaves!Ambitions she has, that she chases,But that’s just one of her phases.Every moment, her colour changes,She pretends to be perfect,But in reality, she’s deranged,Her insecurities run deep within,She trusts no one, not even herself,Her mind is a pool of negativity,She’s filled with toxic insecurities,So, she cuts…

Lost.

I’ve had my heartbroken,And I’ve shattered a few,I don’t know what life has for me,I’m lost without a clue,As fickle-minded as I am,I change my direction every time,Going round and round in circles,I’m dizzy, life seems like a circus,I have no idea what I am doing,Nor do I know where I am going,But I want…

The rollercoaster of… Love?

I saw your eyes, so filled with grief,I took you in my arms, forgot my pain,Poured onto you all of my love,Gave you my heart, body, and soul,I knew I would never be put first,But madly in love, I settled being second. You told me how much she meant to you,Oh, how she broke you,…

If my ribcage were a wishbone…

If my ribcage were a wishbone,To give a second chance,To my battle scarred heart,Or I had some magic potion,To heal all my bleeding wounds,I would be tempted to use them all,To once again, feel new and whole. But I would fight past my temptations,And wear my battle scars with pride,As blood drips down my battered…

Hello October!

Oh, my beloved, October,You’re a little too late this year.You see, I’m already in December,Withered, fallen, and icy cold.A tiny spark ignited in me,When you were about to begin,But well, that gave me a wildfire,Incinerating, my soul and my spirit.Now I lay in my icy coffin,With no sign of life within,As I observe you from…

Pills

One pill, two pill, three pill, four pill,For broken hearts, there are no pillsYet I keep popping them in,Hoping that they somehow heal,Painkiller for broken hearts,There should be something like that,But as it hasn’t been invented,I take the stuff that has been marketed,Ibruprofen, morphine, codeine,Do some magic, please heal me.Five pill, six pill, seven pill,…
