Nylee 6d
My chest is heavy,
The inside is hollow
All the thoughts in my head
I can't keep them all.

In many ways
Little of me losing away
I keep pondering
Why me, why indeed?

Unbearable at times
The misery madness
The reason of existence
unanswered and the end.

Beautiful people
Nylee Mar 8
Some people are beautiful and deep like a well written poetry,
There are books written on them, the ink falls short
Pages after pages, engrossed into them,
Their eyes bold and challenging, the life and beyond
Their courage legendary, they are heroes for generation to come,
They are not just part of history, their kindness still runs
Love, passion and luck, they are miracles in flesh
I wish to see them become, with all compassion, the destiny to strike up again
Amazing individuals, and then in this world exists me
Trying to follow her footsteps
Jumping up and about,
An inspiration, my little feet will keep following

Thanks luxury
Nylee Jan 1
You give me ease
but my list of problems don't end

You give me joy
but my amount of sadness doesn't change

it is crazy, the technology
Everything is super speed,
Still no time to rest or sleep.

Find your next poem
Nylee Dec 2022
Its been ages, I have read a word from you,
Much less a verse,
I am eager to hear more from you, a star in this universe.
I zoom in an out out of your life, time and time again
A window is always open, waiting for you to comeback again.
Our connection disrupted, but we still find links to each other,
All we need to retrace our path to be back together.
Write your thoughts in the pages, nuances intrinsic,
Fresh copies, a touch of the artistic, a kind poetic.

Unnamed legacy
Nylee Dec 2022
endurance and death,
an ordinary life,
time up and gone,
a seasonal kind.

Rotting away,
fallen on ground,
I am at a far stay,
an empty home.

the wardrobe is still full,
with unowned dresses,
the book still had pages
but the story finishes.

Nylee Oct 2022
It's end of the month,
Closer to the end of the year,
Life is all too tragic,
Seemingly normal at times,
And then you hear the horrors
of another place and time
And then you can't help but ponder
what way will you die?

Simply Anxious
Nylee Oct 2022
I am scared of confrontation
I am simply scared of pain
I spent hours thinking
all the what ifs and with who's
before it even commences
and sometimes nothing happens too.

I bottle up my anxiety
I try some denial
Till i simply cannot ignore.

I am anxious to learn
What life has in store.

I come prepared
and sometimes i am not
There are instances where
I simply lose control.

The changes after the big day
At times drastic, at times unnecessary
Can't believe how bad
Life can be.

The High End?
Nylee Oct 2022
I used to climb on window pipes.
Look through the neighbour's side,
Reach around trying to climb high.
I wanted to go into the dark skies
Find the real paradise.

And I am still climbing the staircase
where the happiness begins
but the steps are never ending
my legs are forever bending
the journey, like any, is tiring.

Worth more
Nylee Aug 2022
And as I wait,
I ponder my worth,
and as a single piece in seven billion
I am aware, one less will not hurt
It won't matter, not to you and not to me
It will still be seven billion
and as powerless I feel
individually we are so less
but collectively we are the world.

One more to seven billion
Nylee Jul 2022
What is me?
not even a speck
in this universe sea.
who am I even?
I can't believe in
the being human,
where there are seven billion
just like me,
while I keep my eyes close
to this reality.

What do you do for living
Nylee May 2022
apart from breathing through your nostrils?
Every breath intake,
A second more to live
all we ever did was breathe
through the sorrows and happiness
it has many arcs, the wave
every moment I spent living,
I knew the fate
same as everyone
death will swallow me whole
all I ever had was my fine soul.

Nylee May 2022
I feel like I am a rodent
for you, kind of a pest.
Not welcome but stuck,
Not my home, but make do
with what I want.
You hate the sight of me
don't want to fight me.
You feel I am drinking
the life out of you.
But soon you plan to
get rid of me, permanently
plotting to execute,
the plan to precision
leave me out in the cold
not to be your problem anymore.

Nylee Apr 2022
I am not a craftsman,
nor a craftswoman.
I don't have a skill,
I draw words for thrill.
I don't fit the bill
for a poet-ess,
my hard work is mess
what do they have,
their every word is a sight
a breathtaking light.

They play with the universe,
show me the bluest stars,
everything in their right.
While I try my best to get a sound,
To my unending thoughts,
show you the ugliness of my mind
the bitterness in me writes
the entitled life of mine.

The sugary sweet words,
I have never discovered.
I've been deprived of
the silkiness and smoothness
of the in depth verses.
It is all brittle and rough
the scratches of my work,
when it is done,
it will never be enough.

I want to reach mountains
with the ink of my pen,
I want to go in
the depth of the ocean
but even on my tiptoes
barely I reach
little over my height.
I am not a poet,
Just an imposter
Trying to be what you are

Being Moony
Nylee Mar 2022

I am a moonchild
Turning colder every night,
Hiding my face,
little more these days

Outer space explained
Nylee Mar 2022
A rockets soars,
high up in the skies
what lies below
is miniature size of me,
and a world, far brighter than we
divided we may be,
but from above the lines unseen

The dark space
and so many million lights
Light years away
a lonesome voyage
Are there aliens around
them too fleeing
selfish as we
ruining their mother planet
to explore new places to destroy
Just like we have been
looking at different places

We'd be neighbours
In the new planet of doom
We'd go in another war
Like we tend to do
We will repeat
the history
The riches will exploit
the poor yet again
the same rain of pain
Nowhere peace attained.

I am still awake.
Nylee Jan 2022
I don't get nights sleep
I hear your words repeat
in my mind's reach
I need a break,
Please don't speak.

People like to preach
Assure their life is perfect
Have their hands on mine to dissect
Maybe I am nature's freak

Don't need your poke of stick
But a part of your speech
Found a place in my heart to creep
Makes it harder for me to breathe
Your sharp edge cut this deep

I need a break.
I am still awake.

Times now
Nylee Jan 2022
In a matter of time
I've been losing my mind
the heat rises, and the ice melts

we've suffered enough
or was the last year, just a trailer
to what is to come more

escaping it ain't easy
it is driving me dizzy
thinking about it

Simply, there are no answers
To the times unknown
and the life that are gone

do we refuse to look up still
Or are we so used to the drill
this is no more surreal.

The north
Nylee Nov 2021
I'd like to show you the direction
But I am the unguided wind
always in the motion
Carried away with the storm
I have lost my identity
too many times now
By the shore, by the night
I'd be gone with havoc
With nothing on me.

Breath Taking View
Nylee Nov 2021
The cliff side view
the beauty chills
the thumping heart
with waves turning
so gripping
taking a step towards
edging to the end
siren calling
the light whispers
so breathtaking
and breathing stopped

Beautiful illusions
Nylee Nov 2021

Nature is silent
Nylee Sep 2021
It is inevitable, the destruction,
By design, we are takers,
We have created endless mistakes
along the way, we can see
the nature fighting back
to our manmade intervention
the changing sceneries
and the unforgiving blue sea
hiding submerged histories
and centuries inside.
Nature won't be silent long.

Looking Back
Nylee Sep 2021
The sheer lack of lustre in life
nothing outside windows, to keep my eyes on
it is a wholesome feeling,
I haven't seen much lately, time has been frozen
I'd piece nothing of my past, no memories to live last
There is bleakness in the road ahead too,
The wheels of life are in mud
I have skipped time in many folds,
dug deeper, found no gold.

Plant me in your heart
Nylee Aug 2021
It's       a   desperate          plea
Do    not                ignore    me

I­'d act out
I don't know
what it is about
Take a notice of me
I've been waiting patiently
for not much but all I need is
an attention for a second or three
for without I'll wilt without your sunshine
Please water me with all the love you'd do your plants

Don't pluck me apart

Grey identity
Nylee Jul 2021
It is all turning grey, it is
Losing its colour
Losing the semblance,
The identity
Turning out to be
Something else entirely
Every inch transforming
A change so rapid
If not seen, won't believe it
It is as if nothing is real
We have been seeing the masks
The truth is, is very dark.

Move ahead and forget

sun and windy weather
Nylee Jun 2021
All there was
was the winds
more winds coming
winds coming in between
with us standing
feeling it in my hair
like eyes forced to close
there was nothing but the wind
And steps were taken to move
winds followed me
accompanied me to my lonesome road
All the way to the waves of sea
inviting me in to give in
While I look in my morose mood
And the Sun stood submerged
like everything, it was leaving me
And maybe it will be back
But for this moment after,
I'll have nobody there
on this moonless night.

Stuck in the time
Nylee Jun 2021
My time has stopped

But the days are speeding away
A blink of an eye

but isn't it none the same,
all the same

Nylee May 2021
The entire world is suffering
and most of us
are trying our best
to not fall apart
at minutes interval.

Most of us are dealing with our losses
by remembering the times
when we had it all
and yearned for more
Now our balances are minus again.

We are trying our best to
survive in the harshest weather
of the new decade
many trees been uprooted
By the shore.

How do I not fall apart,
I am left with nothing
On the cart,
Keep these fat tears on bay,
till it flows over.

At minutes interval,
Bad news arrival,
I switch the channels,
It is worse than before,
Than ever before

Fare Well
Nylee Apr 2021
I think
my time is near
this time
the end,
I do not fear
the whispers
that i hear,
I am calm,
my breathing,
it is breaking.

I still care
If you'd care
I exist no more
I am that vain
even in pain,
I'd seek more
as my mind
connects back to you.

The rain has stopped
my heart will too,
it is all part of nature,
the destiny,
we met,
but so unclear
we'd go
as destined to.

So here it is,
my last
it will be
a fragment of you.
And here it is,
it is the final goodbye,
fare well, you

choices makes you
Nylee Apr 2021
You know she is waiting.
You know she is
on her feet to
be seen by you.
her life goes
where you be,
her thoughts are
in your favour

You notice, don't you
You feel you
deserve it, don't you
You like your control
make it your choice
while you pursue
Your goals,
She'll wait
In your trap
Convenient, isn't it.

She may wait for now
She may wish you well
tomorrow too
But luck runs out
not to doubt
And then, there'll be
a sense of regret
You chose this
Choices breaks you

a walk into
Nylee Mar 2021
My lonely field
no one to accompany,
there are weeds growing
high up till my chin.
I am barefoot,
walking around aimlessly
my feet are bleeding
many pebbles beneath my feet
I am searching for the sun
hiding behind the clouds
the colours are sepia
black, brown, yellow
soon there is rain
pouring over my face
the scene goes muddy
then moon follows
and the night conquers
and till when it is dawn
I am long gone.

a walk in my field,
a walk into my life
it is how it is
stay where you are
scenery is not pretty

still waiting.
Nylee Mar 2021
Is it me, is it you, is it us, or is it my head
I can't recall well how it had begun
but has it been always like this
Always losing at both ends
Replaced so easily, you don't look at me
Least bothered, left at my own device
My own bone to pick, you have no time to give
Restless, relentless, you would drown me in deep waters
I keep waiting for you to save me
The pool of tears is crystal clear
Displaced, delude, I have been reduced
My value to me rose to all time low
Where in the world you would find me
I am in the jungle of my own vice
Don't seek the worst in me
I would fall on my knees yet again
But my destiny has always been it.
Dying, well not surprising,
Drought, and the last drop.

Jinxed me
Nylee Mar 2021
I need to understand what I do need
I need to realise what do I want
I blame others for their choice
For they never choose me.
I keep the remaining hope aside
It has become my downside
What makes me, me
Me, doesn't even make me happy!
It doesn't even work when I hide
I got nothing in my pocket.
My changes disappear too,
always the rocky beginnings.
Simply told I may be jinxed,
I finish before the start line starts
Whatever I try to touch is simply gone.

Your gravity hit me hard and fast
But mine didn't even touch you

are working against me
affecting just me.

Listen to the quiet sea
Nylee Jan 2021
what happened,
it was the reflective sea
it was one time thing
is it really though,
am I good enough,
who knows?

One spark flew,
it is a journey
what have I purchased
what do I own?
who do I owe,
whom do I owe indeed?

I have never been tried to
all I have ever strive to
is it just the same
but all it transforms to blame
when all goes south
and north is light years away.

it was a black ink spot
on a white blank page
it was so seeking
I couldn't look away
I have burned holes into it
but it just stays
the circle goes on.

I have been quiet for long
in my distraction
I look towards the sky
the birds flying away
I have nothing wise to say
new, old, gold
you have probably heard it all.
