horizon

FREE WRITING

i thought you were the horizon
a healthy balance;
the fine line
between opposites.

but no,
you were the sea
deep and wide,
i couldn't see the end
no matter how much i tried.

you were the sky,
stretching up so high,
so limitless
so fleeting,
i couldn't feel myself breathing.

i thought
it was safe
but i drowned in
all of you.

your touch
bruised me
these blue-black splotches
i thought
would never go away

his touch
didn't draw blood
from my weakened skin
it took the nectar
i never knew i had
from deep within me

and taught me
to heal myself

chained down to my weaknesses
my fears
my lies

the taste of blood

my heart covered in scars
my eyes dried of tears
i fall weak to my sins

i'm trapped

it feels like

it hurts

i hear voices
laughter

banging against the walls

and succumb to my fate

where no one
lends a hand,
only the darkness

she loved his passion

his will of never giving up.

and the calm loved the storm.
he loved her imperfections

such were the two

his window

He stared out of the window in his room,
watching the heavy rain smack against the glass panels.
It was a Sunday morning,
he was free to relax.
He leaned his head on the cold glass,
and to the sound of rain,
he slowly fell into deep slumber.

"Mommy, where are you?" A much younger boy furrowed his brows, feeling restless. "There there, there's no need to cry! Mommy just went to the car to grab an umbrella anyway, I'll be right there!" The woman hastily shouted as she clutched the foldable unbrella in one hand. The young boy, finally feeling at ease, dashed towards the woman, who was separated by a stretch of road. The rain was still pouring heavily and the boy was no longer sheltered by the roof over his head. "Hey that's dangerous, get back!" The woman exclaimed with terror in her voice.

too late

Drip, drop.The boy woke up to the sound he fell...

rocket

my heart is a rocket
blasting into your endless space
trying to search for
something of worth
but you're just too vast
to comprehend

your space
cries out darkness
and loneliness
and sorrow
and somehow
i am drawn to
your quiet abyss,
sinking deeper into you

sometimes
i see gleams of light
shining from somewhere else
wanting to break open
but the darkness of
your neverending space
shuts out everything

i don't know why
but i want to be the
beacon of light
to shine in your dreary space
of solitude

let me be your strength

plastic and flesh

i looked at myself in the mirror today
tracing the outline of my face
grazing the rough texture of my face
my imperfections
my insecurities

but everything washed away
when i read my poetry

the strength of my words
the harsh reality i fought
the softness of the smile
hidden behind alphabets on a screen

graceful strength

we're plastic on the outside
scars, wounds;
we're flesh on the inside
hurt, lies

we're one and the same
yet so different
the story told in our veins
can never be weaker
than the words bled on paper

gym clothes

used

i feel used
like gym clothes
worn on a sweltering hot day

maybe if i wait
maybe i won't see
the mess i am
covering my eyes
shielded from the truth that laid bare
in front of me

if the truth is hard to handle
then everything easy must be a lie

because
like his washed gym clothes
dripping with youth and vigour

he hung me out to dry
 

Lacuna

With her feet given to the heavens,
her heart spilled all the colours,
the rain flew up towards the sky.
When she could no longer feel
the cold and dampness of
the pebble stones in the lake,
she was devoid.

Kairos

it was the right time,
they were in the right time,
to gaze into each other's eyes,
and feel an unexplainable
freedom

the tea gone cold

i'm sippin' cold tea
waiting patiently for him
he who never came

to the world

the light in our hearts
illuminates where we are
only if we
choose
to flip the switch

of love

i think
there's a hole in my heart
i'm falling
in
and
out

roasted chestnuts

you were
roasted chestnuts
aroma tingling my nostrils
like a child running in the park
embracing
my insecurities
coated with warmth

longing

how foolish i was
longing for something that was
in my grasp all along

thinking (colours)

i've ever wondered
why there was a spectrum of colours
looking back now i've realised
how subtle yet beautiful
the colours were in my life

great

she wasn't scared of who she wasn't
she was scared of who she was
because she could do greater things
than she could ever imagine

wallflower

she chose that living
where her beauty, seen by all
But oh so distant

Don't Deceive Yourself

what makes you think
you're not valuable
when you're the oxygen
others breathe
