She trusted you
You were her hero
You are the reason.
That she exists.
The first word she
Was for your attention.
She wanted to be just like you.
But you took her whole being.
You left her feeling confused,
Her little body and soul
raked in shame.
And guilt and blame.
Her whole world came crashing down around her.
Was it worth the pain she still carries around
In her big eyes,
Eyes so similar to yours?
Does it ever occur
To you
That you destroyed
The life you helped create?
And yet she wants
To come home to you.

Dear Sadness,
Our love affair must end
Granted you are passionate
But I have things to do
And you are too demanding.
I can't be at your beck & call,
I can't let you possess me
You are stifling me
With your constant
Absent presence.
Goodbye, I am-
Breaking up with you xx
The best love stories
Have no exclamations
No shout - outs.
They have quiet little
Hyphens, linking two
Souls in infinity.
No question marks
or what ifs.
No apostrophes
Or possessives.
Just acceptance
And thriving in-
Adversity and hence,
The best love stories
Have no full stops.

The silent sounds of midnight
brought you to me
I stayed wrapped in hope
your lips, your warmth
your nonexistence.

Mercilessly impatient
are these silent grains
of Hope-
Grating away
on my sanity,
that someday
you will happen to me.
Like dark poetry.

You are reason and passion’s love child.
You are everything that is right about-
Everything that is wrong about me.
You are death’s soft kiss on my clavicle,
You are life’s reply to my inner tempest.
Your marrow warms my lonely bones,
Your blood cools my uncontrollable fear.
I fear the madness you invoke in me-
The bloody desire your hands provoke.

I should retreat into my own silences,
But like the irresistible sinful rustle of silk-
Your silences beckon me, giving me voice.
