scared
Humble Jun 2019
this silence between us,
is like an egg,
the answers we seek is inside,
but we're just too scared to break it.

Almost
Humble Apr 2019
I almost didn't
survive you leaving me

but,
I think I would
have died anyway
if you stayed.

Return
Humble Apr 2019
I didn't think
you'd return back to me
but you did.

You shouldn't have,
because now, you're
just a familiar stranger.

I neither hate nor love you.

Wardrobe
Humble Apr 2019
As a kid,
I thought wardrobes
really led people to Narnia

As a tenager,
it became a place
that held all the secrets
of seven minutes in heaven.

Now, it's just another
chaotic part of my life

Memories
yet to be sorted out,
Secrets still hidden deep in
like your shirts.

That leaves me believing
that wardrobe is
just a fancy name
for cemetery,
for memories and secrets.

Strangers
Humble Apr 2019
Two days of
silence,
turned to years,
and
just like that
we became strangers.

Poetry
Humble Mar 2019
Poetry is like painting,
the way artists gives life to a blank canvas,
beautifying the world with colours.
Is the same way writers give life to a blank page,
making the world beautiful with words.
It's international day of poetry, What does poetry mean to you?

Heartbreak
Humble Mar 2019
Heartbreak,
is watching your phone
fall and then your screen cracks
looking like Spider-Man's web.

Until then,
you haven't experienced heartbreak.
Ughhhh

Women
Humble Mar 2019
We need
A world where women
are not objectified
but are instead dignified

Because a world without women
would be a wasteland
Women should be appreciated and respected.

Peace

If there was no war,
I don't think "peace" would have been a word.

Room
Humble Feb 2019
My room is like my mind
In order now,
Chaotic next,  
A continuous cycle of beauty and mess

Ecstasy
Humble Feb 2019
Shower me with some reckless love
Let me drown in endless ecstasy.

Dreams are fire
Humble Feb 2019
From sparks
to flames
and flares
Then to a blazing fire
That's how dreams are
You tame it
lest it becomes an inferno
and consumes everything

I still wait
Humble Feb 2019
I still make two cups of tea every morning
I still help you to run the bath
I still pick out a tie for you
I still ask Charlie to make breakfast for two
I still change the channel to your favorite sport channel every morning
I still receive your daily paper and I still think it's weird that you read those
I still go out to the Dunes hoping to meet you waiting
I still turn on the night light by your side of the bed just the way you do
I still make room for you on the bed hoping you'd get in when you get back from work late

Your sister came by the other day
She drank the second tea
She thanked me for running her a bath
She asked me to donate your stuffs to charity
She ate the breakfast I asked Charlie to make just how you like
She changed the sports channels to watch the morning news
She cancelled your paper subscription
She made us eat at another restaurant
She slept on your side of the bed with me and switched off the light on her side

Your sister says they care about me
and needed me to move on

I don't think life and love ends in death...well mine didn't
I wait each day for you to walk in, say you missed your flight and took a different one
that there was no network that's why you haven't called
or that you were kidnapped or something
Just so you can end my grief
This grief is the only thing stronger than my love for you.

Clouds
Humble Jan 2019
Sometimes, when it rains
I wonder,
"do clouds,
feel broken too?"

Mad World
Humble Jan 2019
The world has gone crazy,
everyone in the society
questions my spirituality,
They want to know about my financial ability,
my ethnicity and nationality,
my physical capability,
my intellectual capacity,
and my sexuality,
but never about my mental and emotional stability .

Switch
Humble Jan 2019
The light I
seek is here
within me, if
only I see the switch.
One time, I had a mental breakdown and a friend said to me "you keep searching for light outside, you have to understand that this light and happiness you look for is inside of you, if only you can find your way in this darkness and see the switch"
It never made sense then, until I discovered that I hold the power to liberate myself from misery and hopelessness.

Mirage

Hope is a mirage,
to those lost,
in this desert

Undeserved Love
Humble Jan 2019
In my haze,
I watched love walk away
never saying goodbye.

"Please come back",
I wanted to call out to it
but I couldn't find my voice

In my numbness,
I couldn't bring myself to go after it.
I just laid helpless,
as it left without looking back.

I didn't even deserve it anyway.

Letter to self
Humble Jan 2019
Dear me,
Don't just sit
Rise, and pursue greatness.

Don't just watch
Go after what you want.

Don't just exist
Strive and start living.

Don't just dream
Work hard and aim for success.

Don't get tired
Keep hiking until you get to the peak.

Hope
Humble Jan 2019
Hope is what keeps us alive,
the tinniest ray can save.
A life without hope,
Is like being in a dark room.
You lose balance,
And sense of directions
Even your steps are slow.
So, Hope is light
Endeavor to keep it burning.

God

God
My life is nothing
Without God,
In it.
He is everything to me
I'm hopeless and helpless if not for God

With words.
That's why I write.

Roses
Humble Dec 2018
I've always hated roses
Maybe because they're
So flawless compared to my messed up life
Very beautiful compared to my scared skin
It's amazing scent compared to my rotten soul
But a part of me loves roses
Because it has thorns just like me
We both hurt unsuspecting people

Spread love
Humble Dec 2018
Love is the only thing that can quench this blazing fire of hatred in the world.
Merry Christmas

Life

As beautiful as a rose is,
it has lots of thorns
So is life,
Very beautiful but it also gets rough

No Hope
Humble Dec 2018
They told me hope's  an entity
So, I went after that vanity
That I lost my sanity
Fraught became my specialty
Now I lack originality
And every sense of humanity

— The End —
