DATING MY DISCOMFORTS

I perceived the distress in my mindI saw the emotions that hunted for attentionThen I invited them for tea and a dateSat down with themTo be seen, to be heard, to be feltAnd to be understood… Until then, I was way too lonely ©2022 Voice_of_the_Pen

Trying Hard

Hurdles taller than us; obstacles bigger than usSatans mightier than us; Angels farer than usBattles tougher than us; Enemies powerful than usFear sworn in us; Failure welcoming us With all our blood drained;And hopes shrank,Strangles and suffocated in our own mess;We’re hanging on a cliffTrying again and again and againUntil we otherwise turn to dust

Like Pottery

Like pottery;She was a well fined and caressed clayCarefully and patiently moldedCarefully and perfectly nurtured,She was a ‘wow’Tons of hands stretchedTo have a feel of her luxuriant skin.To win her meant to conquer,To conquer meant to kill.And when all hands pulled a sword,A spare hand to hold her;There was none.And just like pottery:She fell; she […]

Forgotten

Show me your smiles And I’ll show you my scars. Show me your rains And I’ll show you my ashes. The wild flames of life With no mercy; Crawled on me like a serpent. And when the winds came My remains scattered. And then followed the rains. My ashes-remains settled But no one could Remember, […]

Time Counts

We start as fools…And through experience;We become wise You remember when you spent an hour bathing only your stomach?Well, you now know how to shampoo your hair You remember when you put your right foot into the left shoe and vice versa?Well, now you can tie your shoelace I remember when I couldn’t recite the […]

I Love You

Yesternight in the cold freezing hour With my own ears I heard such words As loneliness whispered to me I have tasted the poison of absence And suffered from the venom of aloneness Which pleads me not to relate The day has thousand emotions And the night but one Yet the love of the insecure […]

Awoken From The Ashes

Who pulled the gun? Who triggered the trigger? Under the frowns Of a lonely fading moon Who groped my neck? So tight in the darkness That the echoes of my screams Were as silent as a forgotten melody? Who tied at my back, so tightly my hands; Covered my pleading mouth with stretchy fingers, As […]

Faultless

The Ocean, though too vast;Apologies not for its depth.Neither does the mountainSeek forgiveness for the space it takes.So, shall you not be held accountableFor the beauty you possess. Even when none is listening;The birds chirp with joy.Indifferently, the butterfly dancesEven in a state of perplexity.And so, does your smiles appear pricelessEven if it’s a single […]
