Love's only weakness
Is also its greatest strength:
It defies reason

Oxygen must envy you
Earning the title was such an easy task, you tried Chaining my airways, only to unlock to your sight
And you did, now decide

Mysterious force invading my territory, I cried
Saving my particles from depending on you, for breath
And I failed, now feel
The void that engulfs me since you left your wreath

Lately for some time I imagined....
There was someone beside me before I closed my eyes to sleep...
There was someone beside me when I woke up and opened my eyes...

How cute I am....?!?!
Make me laugh...

I AM GOING THROUGH THE STAGES OF GRIEF
FOR THE LITTLE GIRL THAT I WAS
AND WHEN I SEE HER IN MY CHEST
I WANT TO HOLD HER TIGHT
BUT I KNOW WHAT THAT HOLDING WOULD DO TO HER
BECAUSE I KNOW WHAT HOLDING MEANS TO HER
AND WHO SHE WOULD THINK OF
AND I AM SORRY
i know how she would struggle and cry and say CAN WE NOT GO TONIGHT, PAPA? CAN WE SKIP TONIGHT AND JUST GO TOMORROW, PAPA? PLEASE? PLEASE? PLEASE?

Now I try to cope through poetry
Yet the things I vent out in cleverly crafted lines
Still get to me
It's like floating underwater,
It's like waiting to be saved.

I come here to vent
Take out my anger
My sadness
The very vulnerable parts of me
That I wish would just go away.

I am quiet
I am ignored
My pleas weak
My heart breaks
And I
Can no longer see
What I used to see -
The pride
Of letting it out
Yet its no longer interesting
And it's no longer valid
If I say my nightmares come true

And I love
Being loved
By people who don't truly know me.
A blurb.

little bubbles escaping
floating
liberated
from my voice
my breath
sound does not travel right
not here
no one is listening
barely even hearing
me
drowning
slipping
being dragged
down
i try to scream
i have been screaming
but all it does
is take away what i need
to stay alive
i try to call for help
but all it does
is keep me
drowning

your name is
forbidden in
my mouth
or in my heart
because when
i think about
you;

i'll cry a little more,
hurt a little stronger
love a little softer
because you no longer
make me feel sober

i'm drunk on the
memory of you
if only i could chase you with pizza but shots don't work like that

It rang into my head like a Jingle
Sending a message through my heart
Leaving a foot print of love
And found out it was just a dream.
It was never real

don't leave me alone

even if I begged you so

trying so hard to let go

I'll hold on tighter

don't leave me alone

even if I said so

I'm desperately screaming inside my head

no I'm not okay

the voices say I'm a burden

so I shut my mouth and forget I'm broken

I can feel it

every inch of my skin

I'm sorry I can't say it

please just leave me alone

Nothing mends a broken soul
The feeling of giving up
and losing all goals
The constant fear of f*ckingup
and a heart with a gaping hole.

Success is never easy to achieve,
success is what you fight to achieve.
life will never give you anything good at your comfort, life will only give you what you'll fight for.

This disease struck me
Like a brick on pavement
Hard

Everything was
Perfect
Then that brick came along
And with the slightest movement
Destroyed everything

“Count it
Perfect it
Measure it
Clean it”
The voices say

Why can’t I let them go?
They keep repeating:

“Count it
Perfect it
Measure it
Clean it”
Why won’t they stop

“Count it
Perfect it
Measure it
Clean it”
I don’t understand

“Count it
Perfect it
Measure it
Clean it”
Someone just HELP me understand

This disease is about
Perfection
But it's the biggest
Imperfection about me

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.

Okay I m into you
I can't deny it anymore
Your silence is like a sword
Going straight through my chest
Devasting what has been left
I cant prétend furthermore
I have to confess
I m into you, nothing less.

the more i give
the less you take
if you don’t want me
just say it there.

my heart got tired
beating for you
wishing it would stop
crying for you.

i’m watching you leave
your steps forever my nightmare
for i loved you
with all my chest
could ever bare.
goodbye

I accept, I'm in denial,
head over heels, madly in love
with living each day in the dark
The bite of truth is so much harder
then the occasional sudden bark
It's easier this way
It hurts less, makes the truth
seem so much less important;
until it's not
Denial felt safe
but never truly real,
and now the bite
I can finally feel;
the ripping of flesh
bit by bit with subtle nips
of truth
Dark was good, but grey ...
this frightens me
I have too many questions
that I'm too scared
to find answers to,
too many clues
that leaves me asking,
What do I do?
So yes, I'm living in no
Let fate question the answers ...


~ Priya 🕉️ Feb 19, 2020
Hiding from the truth makes being found, that much harder to accept.   Denial is just a temporary fix.

I want to write you
I want to put your smile into epics
Your eyes into ballads
Your kisses into rhymes
I want your hands as a free verse
Your smell a pastoral poem
Every word you speak is like a love song
And I want it
“Tattooed on my soul”
Forever
I want to write everything about you
And fill a thousand books with you
My muse
My love
I want it to well up in my ink
To overflow
Spill off every page
Like I feel your love spill
Onto me
I want to write your every detail
As only a lovesick poet could
My boyfriend makes music, and one of my friends heard his song and said she wanted it "tattooed on her soul". I wrote this poem for him

My notebooks are filled with all the drafts of the poems i’ve never completed because our love is indescribable like only the language of love can be.

I really like looking at you
Your face makes me
blushing and smiling like
a fool
Maybe I am a fool,
fool for you
Your eyes...
Oh my lord
Beautiful greeny colour of your eyes
makes me melted
and your stare kills me
Because it might never notice me

Love is love here
But in some parallel universe
Hate is love
For instance 2+1=3
4-1=3
And then 4-1=2+1
Similarly if
love is love here
And hate is also love there
Hate=love in some parallel universe
Love=love here
Then Hate is love
So maybe the answer is yeah
Hate is love
And love is hate

Poverty breeds poetry.
good night may never come
i'm awake and shaking
in the quiet of dark
my fragile heart is breaking
at the memory of us together
uncontrollably laughing
to a stranger's eyes
we might've seemed happy
but i know we were not
just a house of cards
a breeze of doubt came over us
and we blew right apart

i wish it was a good night
that sleep would silence my mind
but i don't wanna close my eyes
when i do the saga rewinds

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?
