Adrift

To keep myself afloat  I crafted reasons out of thin air, Scrambled together  their splintered foundation, Stacked them side by side  in a precise formation, Salvaging a proof that wouldn’t appear damaged beyond repair. But the impervious Sea remained, as ever, a merciless affair. Nor did the angry winds take a kinder view. Calling for... Continue Reading →

Selfish

Among the very many lessons that are left to learn, The one that I keep failing, ever so willingly, Is how to love you in moderation. Just as a canoe in the clutch of a tempestuous sea is no more at fault than this rabid notion, I wouldn’t know how to judge Or even where to... Continue Reading →

The Lie

Between the things we thought were missed And the ones we never find, lie dreams that pile on bucket lists And a life that’s lived confined. Between the chances we held in fists And the risks that we declined, lie fires dying in ash of what-ifs, And a fate to which we feel resigned. Between... Continue Reading →

Price

I paint them in red, those words that I choose not to voice And the ones that I write come out in black, When they hold inside a silver lie. I mourn the death of things that never came to life And the ones that did, I tied a noose around their neck, Carving rightness... Continue Reading →

Confection

Sweet Betelgeuse, if love could be measured in a cup, I’d give you nine plus a half, put aside seven for the rest and keep nothing for the one I keep failing to forget. But as it stands tonight, like it did yesterday, he, with all his defects - of which, there are countless to... Continue Reading →

Crossroads

Tonight there's no bag of tricks beside me out of which to spin ourselves a tale  of everlasting love or a spurned lover's plea. Heartbreaks seem to have lost their wail, saccharine romance is wearing tediousness under its gossamer negligee & my heart can find no bearings in that same old wearisome detail. These sanguine arms of Horizon... Continue Reading →

Killing

So now that you have found your little corner that’s bustling with ingratiating voices you so dearly adore, dressed in intricately woven tulle and fine muslin Their fawning lips keep screaming, “Encore!” Isn't it everything you wanted and still, so much more? So now that you have killed me, granted, for the umpteenth time Looks like this... Continue Reading →

Conviction

When I say I know you, I don’t mean that I know your favorite colorBe it Black, Grey, Red or Blueor maybe something duller?No such silly checklists, nope, none!And maybe if that's what you want, Then let’s all say “Hallelujah!” that I am not the One.But this feeling still drags me to the old hauntclaiming to innately know youeven if to you it feels an...

Heartstrings

(Image credit: Gossamer by Marcela Bolívar) The beauty that died in her anonymityor the nest that lay broken in the silhouetteof her unnamed streetwas the least of life's tragedies,when they found how she had borrowedmoments of time inconspicuouslyto wield her melancholy with flaming inkand penned numerous poems with prose in between.Tearing herself, she stitched each...

Pharos

Pharos - by yours truly. There are oceans filled to the brim with yawning stretches of gelid emptiness between our lips but you, much like a Pharos, shine through the damning chaos to navigate my each step and i, on a dirigible of Faith, keep sailing through this ether of angst, knowing it's to you, love,...
