I've been avoiding you for some time now
Not wanting to confront the twisted emotions tangled in my head
Not wanting my gaze to meet the confliction tugging at my heart
My body is a storm right now
And all I wished for was some peace
But shutting myself behind locked doors, waiting for the thunder to die down, hasn't seemed to help
I still hear the rain pounding on my windows
I still shiver as wind slips through the crack of my door
I still shake as my shelter sways uneasily
I guess I'm afraid to drown
If that makes sense
Waves are cascading from the sky
With a force that would surely knock me to the ground
I would be breathless and helpless
Alone and weak
The storm would drown out my cries
And the storm would eventually drown
first poem in a while. not doing great and I haven't wanted to think about it by writing poetry but I gave in today.

All alone in my room,
Without anyone that cares
So I sit in solemn silence,
Amongst my world of squares.

I feel like I'm in control,
As I spiral further down,
Clenching my pieces tightly,
Begging to be found,
Knowing it's hopeless,
I lay my king on the ground.
Lately I've been staying till late at night just playing chess, it's a nice distraction from the silence. No one is here, admittedly that sounds like a stupid thing to complain about at 1 in the morning but I just mean in general

She had galaxies
In her eyes
And her tears
Were falling stars.

there's happiness
and there's sorrow.

there's life
and there's regret.

there's sin
and there's confession.

there's me
and there's poetry.
poetry is not an escape anymore
it's the way I live now

I am blue and you are pink
we imbue in a puddle and sink
pursuing each other we sync
a bubble of thoughts we think
a connection of dots we link

Sleep now, O sleep now,
O you unquiet heart!
A voice crying "Sleep now"
Is heard in my heart.

The voice of the winter
Is heard at the door.
O sleep, for the winter
Is crying "Sleep no more."

My kiss will give peace now
And quiet to your heart -- -
Sleep on in peace now,
O you unquiet heart!

A word spoken...a moment opportunity not taken
These are things that never return
So think before you speak
Live every moment
Take every opportunity that comes your way

Do not allow someone's negativity to affect your inner peace...filter out the unnecessary stuff.

rain pouring down
rolling on the boulders and stone
dashing through the wind
dripping as drops on the edges of the leaves
some trying so hard to stay as a dew
on the top of the grass
transparent like a glass
chill winds making me freeze
no wonder my furry little guy
is not letting me go away
cuddling with the carpet on the floor
his warm breath hitting my leg is just so cute
but when he licks..oh just like giving me goosebumps due to the cold
it's cold everywhere
wish you were here Bicky.
it' just so cold...and rainy.....and i feel so sleepy...just having an amazing time with Jerrie(my dog)....he feels so cold too...on the beginning days of rain i didn't like it so much because of my runny nose...but now...just trying something to find the beauty in it....
