Let’s pretend
no one ever broke our hearts
Let’s draw a line under yesterday
and wake up anew
with just me
and you.

I regret the end
I regret the wasted time,
I’ll never regret you & the love we once shared.
Love is strange

I made an album out of confusion
I found a journey worth pursuing
in the rubble of it all, I found myself underneath it all
the stones and bricks, the hero within
to save me from this apocalypse
under the shimmering moon I grew
this is a rebirth, once in a blue moon
"If a man speaks in the wilderness and there's no woman there to hear him
is he still wrong?"

Some people
Just want it to end
And that's enough

what is it to be free
when you'd rather be chained?
no cages to hold me captive.
that cage was a sanctuary.
it kept me safe,warm,and fed.
out here is the real prison,
and if you want my advice,
keep fighting it.
a world isn't free
when we're all hiding our faults.
put me back in my cage, i miss it.

One can't deny the luminosity of his love
He brings forth the light of day with his unforgettable smile
Even the songbirds singeth their welcoming serenade
And he dances upon water as morns' ethereal mist rises
Let me not take thee for granted, please accept my humble salutation
Your warming embrace is the hearts' silent invitation...

I long to gaze at your radiant face but surely I'd go blind
You are the crowning glory sublimely heralding noontide of the day
And the living breathing earth softly whispers---
"My love will orbit thee until your fusion of love consumes me"
The opaline lantern of the night is beautifully aglow due to thy kiss
It's true to say, the truth of thee is the innermost truth of me ~ Divine
Through the fleeting seasons of my souls' sojourn, you will always shine...

Painting the sun using mere words can't touch upon your splendour
Musing upon Gods' creation makes my heart soften & soul grow tender...
I would like to wish you a joyful Christmas
&
A new year filled with peace, health, Love and wishes fulfilled.

We've slaughtered plenty
To eat their own
And time has proven

We all walk the same
stuck in the trance of regrets
anonymous paths
tried to run from it all
hiding wasn't a safe place
till you find your strength
We all walk through the same feeling of pain,
just in different anonymous paths

Own your beautiful battle scars, they are to be cherished not to be shamed off

She keeps songs
locked away in boxes
like secrets.
She will take them out
like postcards
to help her remember
the feeling of
a different time,
a different person
by her side.
She likes the one
that makes her
eyes close
to see the lights.
She smiles at
the one that  
makes her stand
up on tiptoes,
the one that
helps her forget
she doesn’t know
what to do
with her hands.

The tune
will carry her.

Like it did
the times when
voices broke
like a heart.
When instruments’ strings
would snap
and hurt.

I see you all the time
It’s so funny that you aren't mine
I can’t begin to understand
What is going on in your mind
Don’t you see it is me you need
Don’t you see I am your replenishment
I am your intriguingly glistening instrument
You need a real one in your life

You gotta believe I am your prize
When you look into my eyes
You gotta see my authenticity
You gotta feel my love
To know that I am enough for you
You will never find another me in anyone else
What I possess is untouchable
My lips, my breath, my chest, my legs, all of me
There’s no one else that can be your eternity

कुछ क्षण पहले शंकित था मन
ना दृष्टित थी कोई आशा ,    
द्रोणपुत्र के पुरुषार्थ से
हुआ तिरोहित खौफ निराशा।

या मर जाये या मारे  
चित्त में कर के ये दृढ निश्चय,
शत्रु शिविर को हुए अग्रसर  
हार फले कि या हो जय।

याद किये फिर अरिसिंधु में  
मर के जो अशेष रहा,  
वो नर हीं विशेष रहा हाँ  
वो नर हीं विशेष रहा ।

कि शत्रुसलिला में जिस नर के  
हाथों में तलवार रहे ,
या क्षय की हो दृढ प्रतीति
परिलक्षित  संहार बहे।

वो मानव जो झुके नहीं
कतिपय निश्चित एक हार में,
डग योद्धा का डिगे नहीं
अरि के भीषण प्रहार में।

ज्ञात मनुज के चित्त में किंचित
सर्वगर्भा काओज बहे ,
अभिज्ञान रहे निज कृत्यों का
कर्तव्यों की हीं खोज रहे।

क्षण का हीं तो मन है ये
क्षण को हीं टिका हुआ,
और तन का क्या मिट्टी  का  
मिटटी में मिटा हुआ।

जो रहा अवशेष है,
जिस वीर के वीरत्व का
जन में  स्मृति शेष है।

मर के भी अशेष है,
जीवन वही विशेष है  
मानव वही विशेष है।

I used to read your poems
but lately you don't write
you're silent and aloof
you know that isn't right.
You can't close a door once opened
you can't abolish all your dreams
you're a poet of the heart
mustn't fall apart at the seams.
Say what you can in words
they speak the message true
spoken from the heart
the poems will see you through.
A hermit's not your style
a recluse, you are not
never give up writing
of things that you've been taught.
I used to read your poems
I'd read them once again
if you would send them out
(this one's from a poet friend)
And someday
You’ll know
That you never knew

And someday
You will do
That you never did

And someday
You will say
That you never said before

And someday you have
To let it all go
That you always held close

And someday
You have to leave for forever
But today, you live, as you should

And someday
Someone will believe
As you did
And someday
Bad gateway
Will vanish
As it should

i spent my life trying to please
someone with a twisted disease
i broke myself down
and tucked my feelings away
to become the person
they wanted me to be
i let myself be watched
through the glass of a two sided mirror
of a sociopath
i wallowed my spirit away
and begged for acceptance
but there’s nothing in the world
that i could do
to let the narcissist know
that i am human too
the only thing that can please a narcissist is being miserable

drops the key down the drain
scrubs the afterglow off until my skin is raw

Always.

Chase The Moment
In early Winters morn

Shimmering, floating , becoming

Purely Fey

Moon guarding night sky

Cresting Winters Pale crown

Glowing outward light

Shimmering, floating , becoming

A soliloquy of snow

Bells of winter’s breath

Awakening our world

Glowing Ethereal,

Radiating Warmth

Warmth of new day

Shimmering, floating, becoming

First Snow

Things wont be the same after this.
I know that they weren't for me.

It takes time for these things to heal,
and it leaves a nasty scar.

But it's a scar you wear with your family,
It's a scar that keeps you strong.

Know that the sadness is okay,
know that I am never far.
This one is for you. I hope you are doing okay... I really, really hope that you are holding on.

You were born near the warm ocean,
grew up around there,
With your clear acrylic smile
and sun-kissed blonde hair

I, the winter cold
More north than I can remember,
We met that day you visited,
a brisk chill, that December

We drank and danced,
while the years passed over
Argued and grew apart,
our greatest fears, now sober

My memories of you, once treasured
Now, faded
as sun deprived lands complain,
Forever, jaded

Illness persists
Through spit and violence
An apex predator
A fraction of a molecule
Here's the equation:
Size has no correlation
To power or strength
For even the tiniest of specks
Punch in bunches
Evolving their very existence
To remove someone elses
Quite familiar, how similar...
The law of life states:
As long as life exists, it will seek to break and take
Harmony is a 7 letter word
On a fractured line
Suggestions to stop it
Fall out of range
From the moment of birth
We are proof of life, eternal strife
Beyond the clouds
Is there heaven for breakers of paradise?

I love him
I tell myself
I know that
We will be together forever
I don’t believe that
We could be separated
My thoughts tell me that
He’s the love of my life
Sometimes my heart lies and says
I could live an eternity
Without him
Like my friends say
“We’re perfect for each other”
And you can’t tell me
He’s not the one.

Now read from bottom to top.

They said,
"The most beautiful art is
looking into someone's eyes
when they talk about the
things they love.
"
And I said,
"Or looking at someone you love.
Or maybe, just maybe,
by looking at the mirror
is the most beautiful art
anyone should appreciate."
Appreciation post for myself; for you and for everyone as well. You deserve more than the world has to offer.

i find that i write the best
just after a fight
just after i've cried
just after the tears have fallen

doesn't matter what story it is
happy, sad, mysterious
funny, tragic, ridiculous
i will always write it well

because any story i write
after a fight, after i've cried
is a story that gives me the most comfort
because any fiction

is better than this.
They wrote me off
so I wrote myself in

The poet lives two lives.
One on the outside,
And one in their mind.

When you look in their eyes
You could see an abyss.

If you looked long enough
You could sink into it.

But most people don’t see it.

Take the time to read the words, though,
And you would know for sure.

The poet lives in two different worlds.
A little escape from the madness.
Or maybe, into.
