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

A Tercet

Hardly, I thoughtTo write you a couplet No!I contemplated;Why not a tercet Without hesitation I took a pen,A fresh leaf of paper,Before I realized, I was on line four;A quatrain. But why?Because the feelings wereSo strong yet recklessThat not even four lines could describeSo, I opted for 5; a Cinquain. But there wereThese words IYearned […]

One More Song

Just one more timeI have come with my melodyAnd I’m yearning for your lyricsI know we reached our crossroadsBut I miss the way we used to touchThe spark that lit the worldWhenever we kissedThe heavenly pleasures that flowedWhenever we huggedI miss how you were my musical notesAnd I tried never to miss youI miss how […]

The cold cameAnd so, did lonelinessNot forgetting HeartbreakAlongside anxietyAnd depressionAll knocking at my door…But my room was already occupied…Because She was right thereWith me…And there was no place for them.

Faultless

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 […]
