My love for you

ends with my fall.

Because my love is true

and that never ends at all

future ex-lovers

sit across from each other


that what makes their hearts flutter

will one day

deplete their tissue boxes

and happiness

captured in their camera rolls

will someday

be wasting space

in their deleted items


one of their dates

will be

an expiry date.

When I'm scared
And could not feel more fear
This is where I run to
My home is a rats' nest,
That I share with you
My home is a rats' nest
Parity. Ambivalence.
Stolen at once -- mistake
Our better days pass far behind
Is a lie my heart betrays
My home is a rats' nest
That I share with you I
Invite your adverse conditions,
Your brittle healing hands
We stole parity
by mistake
Stole ambivalence
by mistake
We have detritus decor for days.
by mistake?
On the shores of her lunacy,
the lake before the sea
hidden well
before the ugly human ocean.
We own a rats' nest.
Rats' nest.

What's love?

Maybe one day when the days are fine,
Maybe some years after nine.
Maybe then we come across each other or maybe we don't.
Maybe we ignore or maybe we don't,
Maybe we smile or maybe we don't.
Maybe we crave for that one hug or maybe we don't.
Maybe then you notice the love in my eyes or maybe you don't,
Maybe you can hear the poem my eyes recite or maybe you don't.
Maybe you still pull my cheeks or maybe you don't.
Maybe you still laugh on my jokes or maybe you don't.
Maybe we exchange contacts or maybe we don't.
Maybe then you leave saying goodbye once again or maybe you don't.
Maybe you call me later or maybe you don't
Maybe i say hello and you reply or maybe you don't.
Maybe we start once again or maybe we don't.
Maybe we fall in love once again or maybe we don't.
Maybe you too wish the same to happen or maybe you don't.
Maybe you too miss me or maybe you don't.
Maybe you too write the same or maybe you don't.

Its been one of those days
when i feel like
with all those cheering and
words of encouragement.
I cannot seem to break
this feeling of numbness
addiction of staying arrested
arrested by this blunt feeling.
It doesn't give an instant dead
but slowly graze upon my soul
till i feel nothing at all
that numbness
is my final resort
which tells me
your ultimate wake up call!

when you spoke
i choked
because the words you were saying
were already broken at the back of my throat

the next morning, i tried to eat
but couldn’t swallow

in a dream, you grabbed me
but nothing hurt

i will miss you
when something hurts
when i stub my toe or come down with a fever
like the one that haunted me last week
or the one you tried to calm on my birthday
the next time i try to take buckley’s,
you will be reflected in the liquid that taunts me, telling me
this is the right thing to do

i will miss you
every time i do the wrong thing
when i stay up too late
or drink one too many bitter coffees
or pretend to forget i might run into you
at the corner i’ve been visiting too often

i will miss you
too often for it not to be a pattern
too much for me to ever feel comfortable alone
too many times for me to count

i will miss you
when i’m not dressed for the weather
when the fresh air stings the marks on my skin
with reminders
of other, warmer winters

i will miss you
when i travel
remembering every little last wave at the airport
wanting to tell you each time i land
so you know i am safe

nothing feels safe
not even the words we called our own
or the new ones you taught me
words i no longer say
for fear of choking

Quite punctual, one might say:
His loss of interest.
We would've been a scandal,
A scarlet letter;
And I imagine
He began to wake up
In a sweat,
Unable to handle
How he felt;
Unable to handle
The consequences.
So, is this it?
If I fight hard enough,
If I show up,
And make him laugh
Will he come back around?
Before now,
I was unaware of how much
I cared,
As he left,
I shrugged him off, saying:
“Suit yourself.”
But a depth opened up
In the pit of my stomach:
Something I couldn’t patch up;
Something that caused me pain
As I bragged about him
To my friends.
I know he’s gone
For good,
And I won’t bother him
Any longer,
In that comfortable peace
He refused to sacrifice.
But I can’t help
Every night
(And I doubt he’d blame me)
To check my phone
For the thoughts
He used to send me.
But they come no longer,
And that I must accept;
Just like I’ve grown accustomed
To the sore pit
He left in my life.

willows wilt,
daisies die.

when they say forever,
it's all a lie.

Some things have to end
And these endings
Could be the second chance
To make things better
To make things right

MINT. All good things come to an end.

Its a funny kind of weird seeing you with someone else
There are painted fingers now where my palm used to rest,
beautiful curls where this head used to lie
Its a funny kind of awkward walking past you now
Always thought it would be me there...right beside you
Its a funny kind of awkward living without you now
You're just another person moving on without me
