Mess
Anmol Mago Jun 30
It's all lying in a mess o'beloved
Our love, our lives,
Our promises, our lies
It's all too intertwined
Like vines climbing over
a sun drenched window sill
like most growing over
an unhabited house

It's all just too complicated
Those nights when pain
engulfs us - dwarfs us
much akin to how cruel darkness
subdues the worn out candles
And here surrounded by
the spectre of our hollowness
we live for all eternity
some what overwhelmed
by the burdensome scars
love has left   us with

Horizons
Anmol Mago Jun 16
like a sea,
reaching out to
an infinite horizon

we seemingly
coexisted for all eternity
and yet never truly
met

bro
don't bro me
he said growling
from his insides
tears spliting his
nerves apart
A concoction of
mixed emotions
reeling inside his head

A snapped string
it was perhaps
or A shattered memory
And somewhere in the
ruins of a friendship
lost to anguish
I lay

It doesn't help

that these gloomy prisons of

Dear Passerby,
Anmol Mago Apr 23
I wish you to know
the things that hurt you
haunt me too
the sorrows that you conceal
behind your unassuming smiles
I wish you just knew somehow,
I have dealt with those demons too

And so I assure you my mate,
you are not all alone in this pain

you never were ...
To the countless friends I found at He Po,
Thanks for being with me, when I needed you all.

musing
Anmol Mago Apr 12
You separated me
From my beloved,
Like a small fly perched
Gently over a spritely flower
on a warm lousy afternoon

You swatted me away
Like an Unwanted spectator
To the outpouring of nature's
Grace

And so we parted,
with a broken prayer,
half spoken - half lost in despair
and a wall of prejudice, yet unsurrmountable
built between two hearts
                                               -- mutiliated

stay
Anmol Mago Apr 4
stay with me beloved
as if this embrace will last forever
stay with me as if our hands
are woven into each other

stay with me as if the clouds
will never stop pouring
stay with me as if the winds
will caress the thunder  forever

Stay by me darling
I need you more than ever
because
for once just once
I long for the forever kind of love
the night reminds me of (you).

keys
Anmol Mago Apr 2
The day,
my grandpa left me,
I decided to lock all my love
in a safe
to save it from the ravages of
this pitiless time

I think sometimes nowadays
I must have lost the keys somewhere
while I was busy getting older
Tbh this one is hypothetical, but still it is really close to home.

(lack of) Empathy
Anmol Mago Mar 23
AND,

as the sun FORCES its way
through the dark,

WIPE away all your tears
and HIDE away that
remorseful diary of yours,

learn to gently PLASTER
your sorrow with a
good old pretentious smile,

for it doesn't help to cry
in a world, that has
no time to empathize

( neither with your repentance,
  nor with that poet inside )

supper
Anmol Mago Feb 24
As a family,
we always
had our supper
in perfect silence
for
the luid language
of cuttlery, clanking
helped us to convey
what words
could never
have said
To my dear family,

Howso ever obnoxious
may I otherwise seem,
but I really love all of you
dearer than me

scribbling
Anmol Mago Feb 24
I scribbled away my heart
to you
I scribbled away all my
pain
And now that I am left
with
nothing much to say
So,
I mumble all day
about
how grim all this scribbling business
can get
Anmol Mago Feb 24
"I don't understand your poems"
she told me so often

[and yet
in each
of my verses
there was
so much
more of her
and so
little of me]
Dedicated to (you)

sometimes the ones you try and forget, are the ones that matter the most

sordid concoction
Anmol Mago Feb 20
your love was always
like a sordid concoction

each gulp left me
with a resentment
rather
UNBEARABLE
just musing around
Anmol Mago Feb 20
one day
(        almost
            like
              a
          flower
        struggling
           in the
muddied brown waters)

I will grow
over all my
agony and
regrets
the day never comes though.

bedsheets
Anmol Mago Feb 19
I haven't changed
the bedsheets of my room yet

each contour on its
wrinkled surface
reminds me
(rather painfully,)
of your absence

the blankets --
still somehow smell
of your mellow breath
for it seems
they haven't forgotten yet
what love once felt like

and often like surprises
so carefully laid,
I still find sometimes
your hair scattered about
here and there
I so wish to tresure them,
as if they were
the last remanants
of that something special
two souls had between them

and then sometimes
on sundays like guests
totally uninvited
I feel all these memories
coming back
choking my throat with tears
gloating me to death
and somehow
I feel like playing all those
games all over again
which we once used to play
"together"
but somehow that voice
inside of my head just knows
how badly will I lose again

And yet however
certainly may I know
what's passed can never return
and trust isn't so easy to gain
I just can't bring my tormented self
to clear away this mess
(we once so lovingly made)
based on my cousins experience.

looks
Anmol Mago Feb 12
Casting a long shadow
over his face
she said in a tone
that was rather plain

"I would have loved you my dear
hadn't your wretched looks intertwined"
They might judgeyou for your looks, your clothes , your ideas , your words and so on. But my friend always stand tall, be comfortable as you, for they haven't yet seen all the good you have within you.

Spring
Anmol Mago Feb 2
It is only after
all the branches
have withered
and fallen off
(leaving the
trees sulking
at the injustices of life)
that spring can finally arrive

and so must it be beloved
For it is only after
these winds of hatered
have ploughed our souls
(leaving our hearts
barren and gasping for
just a little more)

that love can eventually
blossom
it is a little late till then, I often feel.

It was the 15 th
"I can't live with you anymore"
that he was glancing at

Probably the 100 th
"I don't love you anymore"

and the 1000 th time somebody
had just walked away from him
leaving him alone
in the rubble of his
heart once more
*
and yet all he saw before him
was the same old dilapidated room
the same old darkness
which embellished it
and the same old shadows
dancing about the walls
a macabre dance of sorrowful glee --

Everything to him just stood so still
and yet the clock -- the dammned clock
just kept ticking in the silence
---
the distant howling of the wind --

I really thought

(was your love
a dream too ?)
I don't know why (you) continue to haunt me
But my love, if our past really was nothing but a nightmare
then you were probably the most adorable ghost ever.
