"but hey,why don't you
ever look back?" "Because then
I would never Leave."
I want you to remember that even though you never look back, I'm always watching you go.

you were the treasure
   at the end of the rainbow.
      The rainbow dispelling hope after the storm.
            The storm that quenched the drought.
               the drought that birthed the thirst.
                  The thirst that craved a companion.
                     The companion who led the way.
                        The way that never was.

looking right and left
but there is nothing left to write

is light the absence of darkness or
darkness the absence
of light?
empty head.

From -
“you’re a girl, you cant play.”

- To -

- Now -
“you play like a girl”

From orders to insults.
From bonds to bullying.

Did we ever really evolve?
musing over sexism on the basketball court.

love's a distant relative
dropping in uninvited
murmuring condolences for a girl I thought I buried away
eons ago.
love strikes when you least expect it.

If i had to write on this, he said

                                    "I'd write it about you."

As your tapestries collapse and crumble inside

Watch the bloodied paint flake off your heart

Don’t brush away the ink pooling in your eyes

Stand aside as they applaud your art
a million thoughts inside my head
I feel things I'll never show
a thousand things I never said
a thousand things you'll never know.

Stardust in her blood,

A fire burns in her eyes.

Child of the Cosmos,

She's a Ruler of the Skies.

The Rose is under the jar,
A fungus lurks within.
The Beast is corroding slowly,
No magic can help him.

Beauty is locked in prison,
The key to Happiness lost.
The castle lies forgotten,
The memories left to rot.

Yes, no magic will save him.
His destiny writ in stone.
The Beauty lies within him,
Imprisoned and Forlorn.
Inspired from Disney's Beauty and the Beast. Though it's a simple piece of work, I do believe it's quite implicit in a profound way. I hope you like it.

there lives a little white boy across the street,
i swear the chaps' got wings on his feet.
but he grovels around in charcoal and mud,
cos they say he hasn't got athletics in his blood.
he breaks British records, doesnt seem to stop,
but the Jamaican colours flutter from his rooftop.
Olympics the dream,but more than that,
little master Owens just wants to be Black.

there lives a little black girl just next door,
i can hear her tap dance on the linoleum floor.
she sings the opera from dusk to dawn,
she prances and twirls on the family's front lawn.
"your dancings' awkward, your voice baritone,"
it's not in your blood, leave the dreams alone.
she smears fairness creams day and night,
little miss Britney just wants to be White.
racism and stereotyping lives on

I planted a box of lies in the patch yonder,
From upon my porch I watched it grow.
My flourishing heart barren no longer,
As tendrils snake upward,beginning to show.

Mushrooming out,it eclipsed the Sun,
Shadowing my roses under an ebony halo.
Resolving to salvage both essence and Elysium,
I uprooted the ****, nice and slow.

This is the sound of
A thousand breaking hearts and
Each of them is mine.

butterfly flits by
as winds blow; miles away, a
hurricane is born.
Chaos theory is a branch of mathematics focusing on the behavior of dynamical systems that are highly sensitive to initial conditions. 'Chaos' is an interdisciplinary theory stating that within the apparent randomness of chaotic complex systems, there are underlying patterns. The butterfly effect describes how a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state, e.g. a butterfly flapping its wings in China can cause a hurricane in Texas.

childhood was                                                      teenage is
empty schoolbags                                          suitcases full of textbooks
full tummies                                                   empty stomachs
empty heads                                                   overstuffed brains
board games                                                   board exams
hours of tic-tac-toe                                         hours of texting
2 minute fights                                               2 minute friendships
too many questions                                       too many answers
wanting to grow up                                       wanting to go back
look where ive come

you were
a learning curve
I tripped over

you took my roses
and left your thorns
they sting every time
I hear you've moved on.

Your fingers trace my skin

Today was amazing.

ensnared in embrace; a
fear you'll never know; who isnt
afraid of letting go
ive come to realize that the purest form of love is being able to let people go ,though i hope i never have to do it.

poster kisses, an
impossible wish; isn't it
hard being fangirls ?
how is it though, to live in imaginary universes?
Sehar Bajwa Dec 2019
the last time you kissed me
you had a throat allergy
(I caught it)
It pains each time I swallow
and so I can say for sure
every breath I take
whispers your name to me
Sehar Bajwa Jul 2018
You win. She's not fearless.
It's true.

She's scared. Plain terrified.
of losing You.

i won't
let you go.
im clinging on to you
a shipwreck when you're my anchor
meaningless maybe. But you're my oxygen.
youre the sparkle in my eyes and the song
in my head youre my world and like i said
i really love you. i always did always will and i'll
fight . I'll fight you if you leave i'll fight me if i let you go.
what i wouldnt give for you to trust me. love me. want me. need me. what i wouldnt risk if it meant you would stay for good.
youre the one  and there will never be another lover boy
because i know i break promises but this once i have something to live for and i promise i'll love you to eternity
if only you'll have me.
give us another chance.

By forgiving
one begets peace
by forgetting
one gives it .
We all make mistakes

Your eyes are black, tinged with blushes of hazel when the sun falls on your face. I’ve never seen such dark eyes with so much light in them. Your hair is a mess like you got up on the wrong side of the bed but you still manage to pull off adorable every **** time. Your dimple makes special appearances when you laugh on random things I say. Your jawline I know you’re proud of; something I would trace with kisses and warm fingertips, sharp and smooth, so alluring. You’re the perfect kinda tall; our lips collide effortlessly and anyway I would go any limit for you. Our hands intertwine perfectly, you can see we were made for each other. I confess I don’t remember telling your mom in kindergarten you were so cute but I’m glad I did; truer words have never been said. Falling for you was beautiful; you were the stars at the end of my tunnel. You light up my world with fairy lights and gentle kisses and dreams of a future together.  I never knew I could blush before you. You wink like a ******* Prince Charming if there ever was one. ‘I love you’ has never felt inadequate before.
