The Phoenix
Vish Sep 2019
these eyes have cried an ocean of tears,
this heart has endured hurt in the form of daggers and swords,
this mouth has kept an eternity of words unspoken,
these ears have heard things that can’t be forgotten,
this body has fought wars that are yet to be won
-
but this phoenix will rise from the ashes,
unshaken and unbroken,
like the heat of the sun that’s ever burning,
warming everything it touches,
the phoenix will be unrestrained,
insuppressible,
and effervescent
whatever you’re going through, you will get through it
i love you

The Fool
Vish Sep 2019
i was a ray of sunshine in your life but you chose to board up your windows
-
was my light too bright for you?
did you get burned?
the shadows lurking in the dark aren’t half as nice as i am but i suppose birds of a feather flock together

Beloved
Vish Jul 2019
To my sweetest bae,
Our love shines brighter than the sun’s ray,
Never a dull moment when your message comes my way,
Because you’re on my mind every night and day

You’re my sunshine in the rain,
A fit of laughter when I’m in pain,
A shot of oxytocin in my brain,
Something from which I cannot refrain

I see you in my dream,
Where happiness is flowing in a stream,
And luminous light shines through a beam,
You and I,
We make a great team

I love you more than you know,
Like flowers blooming in the snow,
Together we help each other grow,
Without you where do I even go?

My darkest days have turned into sand,
With you holding my hand,
Our journey may twist and bend,
But I promise I’ll be with you till the end
I love you

Infinite Possibilities
Vish Jan 2019
i could be in love with you
if you were down for it
i’m not in love with you
not even close
but i could be
if you gave me the chance

Luna
Vish Dec 2018
You know my name but not my story

You see my face but not my soul

You feel my skin but not my scars

You hear my voice but not my pleas

You only want the untainted parts of me.

But my dear,
haven’t you heard ?

The moon only glows so bright because she lives in the dark

Gone
Vish Dec 2018
You shouldn’t have come if leaving was all you had in mind

Stay
Vish Sep 2018
You are a piece of my past which is still in the present
Why did you have to come back ?
Or rather
Why did I have to let you in ?
I guess I’ll never find out
But now that you’re back
I’m hoping this is your final abode
I’m hoping that you’ll stay
                                                 stay
                                                         stay

Silent Scream
Vish Sep 2018
I dreamt again last night
Of that same old treacherous place
From my childhood of course
That torments me way too often
In my sleep
In my waking
The constant feeling
Of fear
Of disappointment
Of loneliness?
I suppose.
There’s no escape even in slumber
I’d say it’s much worse
For it’s then that I hear the silent scream
That I keep buried in the light of day
dreams are a curse wake up you’re alive

Bandaid Heart
Vish Sep 2018
I keep looking for permanent homes in temporary hearts
Probably the reason why my heart has way too many scars
I never learn
Because hope silently creeps its way back to me
But still i yearn
For the day when love comes without a fee
i just don’t wanna get hurt anymore

Inner Demons
Vish Sep 2018
Twisted faces and grotesque features
Encapsulated in prominent darkness
They emerge at night
Sights settled on the idle mind
They break and burn and bruise
I’m starting to think they are my muse
i have some ugly looking friends living in my mind

Solitude
Vish Sep 2018
Her heart was cold as ice
Provoked by love’s demise
Reminded of a long lost advice
To keep her affection in disguise

Her mind was dark as night
Effected by hope’s dying light
Forlornly pondering over her plight
To feel deserted in a heavily populated world is truly a blight
still finding my place in the world

Black Bird
Vish Sep 2018
Black bird flapping it’s delicate wings under a stormy sky

Dark clouds overhead promise of a thunderous cry

Black bird screeching a wail that sounds like a muted song

Filling the air with smoke of despair that is certain to last long

Black bird shedding it’s inky feathers after the downpour has settled

Only to be reminded of the loss that will soon leave its bones rattled
we all have a dark side
Vish Sep 2018
You shouldn’t have come if leaving was all you had in mind

You do not deserve these words of mine and yet here I am writing line after line of heartache that you caused me

Because it is these words that help me cope with your unpleasant and unwelcoming departure

Thank you for leaving for it showed me that I am so much better off without someone who chooses not to appreciate the beauty that lies within me
to all the people who broke my heart

— The End —
