I know I know I know
Human emotions are simply complex
I understand but can’t control them
Every second is different
I’m in the middle of polar opposite
thoughts and emotions
I’m happy
I want to be dead.
Bipolar milliseconds
are draining my core.

Invent the money
Blood for the down

I need some air
That’s gonna cost you a pretty fare

Water I can’t live without
Costs you to drink from the spout

Do you want my life I say?
No- not really
it’s not worth much
these days
I can’t believe the things we have to pay for

You died that day.
No, your heart beat on--
But you died that day.
I watched your soul break
And I broke too.
I don't fear the death of me,
I fear the death of you.

Running down the road
Hands intertwined
Locking eyes with you
Made my really shy
Cupid's bow in place
Getting deeper in my skin
With every experience shared
By only you and me
The sweetest death of all
To get struck by love
A pretty picture indeed
That does no longer exist

our love is a joke

for you
I can be a fool

blinded
I can't hear it

you're full of tricks
I'm entertained

I'm convinced the sky is green
if you tell me

I'm a little off
loving you is surreal

Quiet with others
A loud mind when triggered
Controlled reactions
The script gets flipped
Moved onto more
Not going back to that
Not moved by chaos
From being provoked
Silence over giving into nonsense
Getting all the backlash
Not needed or wanted
Falling for it anymore

lift my droopy hair,
peer at a gentleman's green eyes

I LIKE TO SAY YOUR NAME

I like to say
your name

when you're
not here

turn you
into sound

conjure you out of
thin air

so that you appear
before me

dressed in sound
only

memory sketching in
the rest of you

as if sound
was just an outline

and love
colours you in

adding the voice last
so I can hear you say.

"Hello you..!"
and there you are

as present
as present

can be.

I like to say
your name

when you're
not there.

testing the waters,
I let him every time.

I don’t know why...
it’s like I have no control over my own mind.

weak sense of self, so he takes advantage

it’s like i know i shouldnt,
yet i don’t want to leave him stranded.

water floor

water flood
water pours

water blood

we're skin tight

though after a while
we seem to die
we seem to laugh
and then cry

we seem to love
and then hate

we're always white
but in the black
i don't want to go back

we're skin tight
and it hurts

And the thing is, I know.
I know why the ground beneath me gives way,
why the hole in my chest creaks bigger.

It is a love I could not cultivate,
that I begged for in its inferior synthesised form,
that I steal from the eyes of others.

A fire I could not kindle,
and so,
I long for your spark,
knowing all the same that it is not the same.

It always blows out sooner than I think.

Look at the clouds
Black and grey
White and a blue sky
Look at the clouds
Where the sun is melting
Look at the clouds
Their shapes and sizes
Look at the clouds
They’re nearly
as beautiful as you.

All out of tears
Just wanna lay here
With no one near
I have so much fears
Crippling up in jeers

My own thoughts I fear

the deeper the roots,
the stronger the tree.
the stronger the tree,
the more weight it can bear.
roots cling to others,
making them almost unbreakable.
but the tree planted alone,
has nothing else to cling to.

dear quinn,

can you please
listen?
just for a
second.

i know you want
to brush it all off.
and pretend
that you aren't
hurting.

but you have to
listen to me.
you can hurt.
you do hurt.

give yourself time.
but more
importantly.

give yourself the
truth.

love,
quinn
can't keep pretending.

to bring back time
is my only dream in this crazy world
to separate the simple pieces
of my odd castle
to attach them with hopes
obliterate the blemishes
i miss a ray of light
and petals appear
- memories are here

she is a happy ending,
not everyone can wait for.
I find beauty in dark places
Love in mysterious ways
Comfort in unbelievable happenings
I'm not weird
I just pay attention to things others neglect.
Life isn't worth living if it's viewed in one perspective

Dear HP,

This is not a poem
But a question
The answer to which
I do hope you have

Why does my lover claim to love me
But still looks for every opportunity
To let me go?

Is it that she loves me so much
But doesn't think she's worthy of me

Or she doesn't love me enough
To think I'm worthy of her?

Shreya Ghosh
I love you
Doesn't mean I love you

It means your eyes
Are deep enough
For me to dive in
And trust the waters
To keep my secrets

It means your lips
Are never harsh upon me
And they make me happy
Every single time they open

It means your hands
Are with you always
Except when I call them
To hug me and leave traces on me

It means your ears
Never get tired of
What my lips convey
And never will , they respond

It means your heart
Has touched my heart
And they'll never get apart
Like they are in a hug for eternity

It means you are special
It means you are mine
So I can be possessive
And you'll say nothing
I can be jealous too
And you'll never see
My hand leave yours
Or our hearts leave the hug

You are mine
And you will remain mine
