Lament (rough draft)
huwriting Jan 2015
Love me slow and not with haste,
fill my heart with all your grace.
This fickle skin will wither away
with the changing seasons burning astray.

Wrapped up in the cloaks of darkness like a banshee
in the grey, hooded cloth;
I’m wishing on the ashes to remind me of the fire
that started the very flame in my bleeding veins.

Let the wail of the woman replace the moan of the wolf;
when love and hope fly away from my soul -
set me free with the callous winds,
live unbruised and promise me that you will sigh no more.

Then leave me on the ground to rot in this haze,
I will pass just like those yesterdays.
Worry not about the chill in my bones,
I would rather die in the frosty tomb than live
in this loaned body of scattered remains
rearranged by the crescent full moon.

Now, love me slow and not with haste
and fill my heart with all your grace.

It torments me.
Breaks my tattered heart in unrecognizable pieces
Tears my soul and sets each forgotten piece aflame.
This demon of a life;
this black shadow that won’t stop
running after me till I am nothing but dust,
till I am forced to end this ****** charade
with my defenseless hands.

I cannot live like this anymore
I cannot let it consume me and
I would readily trade my erratic self
with anyone who can give me a stable day
without these kaleidoscopic events.

I've been reading a lot of Sylvia Plath's work lately and all I can say is I find a deep connection with her.

Those “pretty” girls in floral skirts
Drink their wine and look at her with judgy eyes.
While she struts around town, smacking her lips & rolling joints,

They would never understand her;
Those “pretty” girls in floral skirts with their lackluster souls.
Their charms would never suffice.
"***** their elegance", she would say
and order a green fairy all the while swearing with the boys.
There was nothing pretty about her,
She was madness.
With her wild hair, stormy eyes, that faraway look and clever mind
She broke millions of hearts to get what she wanted
burst their bubbles with her heels alone
She gave up on love; she gave up on him to survive.

Find me
huwriting Aug 2014
Where your darkness meets mine and
there is no crack in the walls to let in any light,
Where the night is everpresent
and the sun fails to rise,
Where the flowers are scared to bloom
and the birds have no flight,
Where the seasons never change
and it is winter all the time.
Where the colors are not familiar
and all is black and white.
Come find me
I’ll  be waiting with this battered heart in my hand and
a tattered soul longing for your repair.
Come find me,
give it a try..

I wish I could undo the pain,
turn all your nights into days
say the things you want me to say
be yours, remind you my name.
I know I gotta make it right, baby,
show you we will survive
you and I together,
fighting this fight of lust and lies.

But tonight I'll pave the way to your
heart, drowning in liquid heaven
we'll go back to the start.
Tonight, let's fall in love
fall apart and do it all over again.

The moon and him
huwriting Aug 2014
When I looked up at the full moon
shining brightly in the night sky,
I couldn't help but be reminded of
your illuminated presence in my drab life.
And I began searching the alleys and
hoping to find a corner
where your rays couldn't reach;
to find faults in your perfect fullness.
That's when I realized,
I was the girl always trying to run away,
too used to drowning when the
shore was nearby.

Summer Air.
huwriting Aug 2014
She strolled in with
her golden heart in tow;
my saving grace
to whom I would give
everything I own.
Staying away was futile
for I saw love in her eyes
and flowers in her hair,
in that chapel in the corner
her words were my prayer.
The white dress she wore
held a promise of
making me a better man.
We danced till dawn
singing our "I do's"
in the summer air.

Free Falling

I fell for him;
Over the edge of sanity into oblivion,

And he fell right with me

We were free falling
and love was what gave us flight.

If you ask me now,
these are all I can offer you;
my words,
my broken heart
and a frigid soul.
But if you still choose to stay
I promise you
bone-numbing love,
love that breathes fire into your very being,
love that makes you afraid,
that makes it hard for you to understand
how someone could be loved so fiercely,
love that makes you believe you are finally
Till then,
I will write these words,
hoping, one day they would be enough.

I stood there, rooted to the spot,
looking up all I could see was
the blurred silhouette of his form.
Memories of the last time I was here
came flashing like a bolt
of lightning.
I took my first step
and I swear to all that is holy
his eyes glistened,
surrounded by tea lights
in the very same chapel.
I was dumbfounded.
Standing there and not
running away sapped
all my energy.

This time, I won't run
This time, it's different
This time, it's him.

Response Poem
huwriting Jul 2014
They say it is a big bad world out there
you may just rot in pieces,
not knowing how decomposed I already was.
Every scrap of me, rusted, in the
aloof corners that I call broken dreams,
before I woke up owing to your presence of high beams.
Honey, our collision was one of its own
kind of voodoo.

**Every rusted scrap of you,
every broken dream,
I tried to dress with the antiseptics of my love.
Baby, you said our collision was outworldly;
it was all kinds of magic.
But what you failed to see in
the high beams was,
I was scared,
not of the big bad world,
but the demons in you.

Should we let religion or region or color

Instead, let's help each other rise back up,

Letter to everyone here
huwriting Jul 2014
I joined Hello Poetry on 18th June 2014,
it's going to be a month since I did.
I've been writing almost all my life (I'm just 21, so it's not much)
just as a form of a constructive outlet.
I would go insane if I don't, no matter how ***** what I write is.

I started sharing what I used to write with some of my friends who were going through things I went through to show them they're not alone.
They encouraged me to share it with a wider audience which I never had the courage to.
I am a big believer of the Law of Attraction (yes, The Secret et al) and one night I was listening to some meditation audio and I woke up the next morning, googled sites to share what I write and HP came up.
I thought, why not? So i signed up, started posting stuff.
Joe Cole messaged me to tell me he liked my work and he would post it in a group and well, there I was thinking it was really worth it.
I got the motivation I needed.

Thank you Joe and all of you here who read, comment, like, share, follow, message; ALL of you are making a difference and
I thank you from the bottom of my stitched-up heart.
I don't really know much about poetry
or the various forms (I am a law student)
but I am learning them on my own and will continue to.

Lately, seeing so much hate on this site just shatters me a little more.
Please don't let what others do bother you (read Cravo)
Let them be.
We're here because we love words, we find solace in them and
something or the other that has wounded or made our hearts happy
motivated us to post our work here.
Let's not forget it.
Keep writing and doing what you do best
because each one of you has taught me something or the other
and I'm sure to many others.
You are all doing a great job, giving each other hope.
Let's build each other up with love and words.
Continue to shine your light beautiful humans.

Love, Regards & Respect,
I am too young and I don't really have any right to do this or give anyone advice but please listen to me.
This site gave me a lot and I can't see people hurting.
Please. Thank you and I apologize if any of what I said hurt you.

He wrote poetry,
with the pads of his fingers on my skin
leaving a trail of goose bumps.
He wrote poetry,
on the valleys of my heart
his words rhyming with every beat.
He wrote poetry
on my soul
words warming me and my entire being.

People thought he was crazy
but that is what made him so special,
he never needed paper to write poetry
he used the entire Universe as his canvas
writing words in the stars, stringing them together
and presenting them to me with a childlike gleam in his eyes
and in that moment,
I could forsake it all
to be a fragment of his canvas.

huwriting Jul 2014
Sometimes when I look in the mirror,
I swear I can see you standing behind me kissing my hair.
I can't believe I still blush when you do that
it's been 6 years, Al.

I am woken up by the smell of cigarettes,
the ones you smoked whenever you were nervous
about a meeting the next day.
I loathe those nasty cancerous sticks.
I throw the half-empty packet at you to make you stop.

When I brush my teeth
I can still smell your cologne in the bathroom,
Always up and ready before me.
I could just swoon looking at you in a suit.

I still see the mess you make
when you step out of the shower
with wet feet right on the carpet.
You make me so mad.

When I'm running late for work,
you help me by making your amazing 10-minute breakfast,
listening to music you wouldn't admit listening to in public.
Oh! The view I have from here is delicious,
you swaying to romantic music, singing along.
How lucky am I?
I forget all about work.

At times when I can't sleep at night,
the scent from your holey t-shirt is so comforting,
I don't really need a dreamcatcher.
I could spend forever in your strong, warm arms,
on this bed, kissing you with the moon and sun as our witnesses
and our heartbeats as the soundtracks to our lives.

Now, I'm here, clinging your favorite bottle of Jack.
Sitting by your grave talking to a stone, for hours.
Your half-empty cigarette packet is by my side.
I wish I could throw it at you.

It's been 12 days
I don't know how you do it or what you do
But whatever it is you're doing
to make all this happen
Please don't stop.
I'll keep it a secret for you,
Tuck me into bed
and curl up beside me,
Just like you did
last night.

Take my hand, pull me in,
push me against the wall, kiss my chin.
Pull me closer, kiss my cheek, grab my hair, bruise my lips.
Remind me of love, of those days
we would never sleep.

Trace circles on my back with calloused fingers,
caress my body with swollen lips.
Memorize every curve,
the dimples on my back and the tiny scars on my skin.
Remind me what it means to feel something
other than this numbness.

Map out my freckles
kiss my eyes
whisper in my ear.
Let the warmth of your skin spread through mine.
Show me what we used to be.
Set my soul on fire one more time.
Remind me what it means to feel alive.

Remind me of us
Remind me of love.

Words my soul whispers when i think of you,
words my heart screams when i am with you,
words trying desperately to slip out of my mouth
but they get stuck in my throat
when you smile that crooked smile.
All I can tell you is,
I am lost, lost in you
and this is it for me.

that whoever is at work pulling the strings

No humanity
huwriting Jun 2014
I was at dinner with my entire family,
Everyone laughing, talking, doing what they do, nagging each other, gossiping.
But I just couldn't feel the love.
The love that I thought would be there when everyone is together.
There were people hiding behind masks,
pretending to love each other,
I can't belong here,
I never belonged here.
There are people here who taunt me, question my life choices,
try to make decisions for me,
call me names behind my back and laugh at me.
All I do is smile and
shatter a little more inside,
I have to look the other way to hide my tears.

All I have to ask them is, is this what you call love?
How do you sleep at night?
You make me lose all faith in humanity.
That is why I am kind to everyone I meet,
And I don't need any more hate in my life,
I get all of it here.
Can't wait to get away from here
Can't wait to be Home.

No humanity here.

The best advice I ever got was, write
Just write it down.
When you're happy or sad or don't know what you're feeling
When you're angry or calm,
Write it down.
It doesn't have to be big words,
It doesn't even have to rhyme,
It just has to be true.
Let it be a part of the written world and maybe it won't change what's happening currently
but it will surely be worth it

I knew better than to think all the good things happening since the past few months would remain that way forever.
I was a fool to think he would let me be happy.

Even when we are not together,
Even when he is not a part of my life anymore,
Even when it's been 2 years,
He still holds my strings,
He still tries to eclipse my happiness at every chance he gets.

Why can't he leave me alone?
Why can't he let me be happy?
Why is he back?
Why now when I am finally happy?
He got his freedom,
why does he still try to tie me to the ground?

I am not strong enough for it now.
I can not go on like this.
I give up.
