A Battle Within

“Strained eyes, cramped neck,Don’t make excuses,You’ve got deadlines to meet,You’ve goals to reach,Push a little harder,You gotta be stronger,There’s no time to rest,You gotta give your best.” “Take a long deep breath,Don’t be hard on yourself,You do what you can,With a smile on your face,It’s okay to take a break,Relax, refresh, and hit reset,Never give…

Dubiety of a Chaotic Mind

I’ve got this way with words,Is it a blessing or is it a curse?To feel everything so deeply,To be shattered so gravely,Ah, a curse it must be, I say. But then I fly so high,Feel euphoric in the smallest joy,Hope never leaves my side,Even when despair takes over my life,Ah, it’s a blessing, I admit….

A Fulfilling Choice

A dilemma I faced in the days of yore,Between a path laid out for me,And chasing my heart,I took a step with my trembling feet,As I crushed, what set me apart. Long I walked, with my head held high,As my soul withered like the autumn leaves,Soon there was nothing left,I survived on pills,Marching towards my…

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…

Strangers vs Friends

When you have something to celebrate,Or face something that you hate,When you are bored out of your mind,Or there are tasks and you’re lagging behind,You know you never have to do it alone,Just blast your friends’ phone. They are the ones who cheer you up,Stand by you when times get rough.They are the ones you…

The men who feel

To all the supercool badass men,Who don’t believe the masculinity crap,And choose to be who you truly are,Brave, is what you are! When society told you not to feel,And anger is the only way to heal,I salute the men who chose to express,You stole my heart, I’m impressed. You didn’t confine yourself to a box,And…

Deleted

If I close my eyes tomorrow,Will you wallow in sorrow?Or will you just forget me,My absence unnoticed?Sometimes I wish you cared,Sometimes I wish you were near,But you were never mine,I have no right to pine.And as I wonder,Will you even shed a tear,If I close my eyes?I realizeā€¦I’m already deleted,Your life perfected.

The Mirror of my Memories

Her eyes, wide and gleaming,Filled with love, hope, and curiosity,Such a sharp awakening,From a deary loop of mundanity. Such high expectations from life,So many dreams to be fulfilled,In such a hurry to grow up,To be independent, move out. Little does she know,What’s yet to come,Life kills hopes and dreams,And sucks one into a routine. In…

The Waves

I was skinny dipping by the beach,Building sandcastles, collecting shells,Making crowns out of seaweed,Watching the paper boats sail. The deep blue called me in,The serenity, tempting me,Step by step, I walked in,Until the waves swallowed me. I woke up in the middle of an ocean,Gasping for breath, rapidly sinking,Cursing my stupid decision,Wracking my mind for…
