The north
Nylee Nov 16
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 10
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 8
Everything is a lie,
What I see as reality
is just my side of story
A pretty point of view
Live it, believe it,
illusion is beautiful

Nature is silent
Nylee Sep 25
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.

How did my self worth
day to day
change to how useful I am
To you.

Looking Back
Nylee Sep 8
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.

I've looked at your photograph
so many times now,
I can now carve your every curve,
imperfections to perfection
make a replica of you
on this stone
but it wouldn't be you.

Plant me in your heart
Nylee Aug 9
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 26
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.

Little by little
every shard of my work
will disappear from this world
and the time will erase
my existence
yet this year I celebrated my birthday

Made to ignore
Nylee Jul 2
Read it and ignore
Move ahead and forget
For three seconds
I reached your mind
and that is enough
for me for now
Notice me not.

sun and windy weather
Nylee Jun 17
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 11
My time has stopped
I see no difference
in January to June
But the days are speeding away
A blink of an eye
and we'll reach 2022
hoping for better view
but isn't it none the same,
all the same
May 29 · 985
Nylee May 29
Why does the moon keep on hiding their dark side,
Am I turning into just like you,
reflecting the bright and hiding in the dark night.

Nylee May 26
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

Nylee May 1

You are free from all the strings
I am not moving in years
But you've been flying ever since.

A brief meet

And I am not going to lie,

Fare Well
Nylee Apr 14
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 4
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 30
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

Truth is subjective
Nylee Mar 28
I have scribbled across thousands of drafts
I couldn't write a sentence of absolute truth.
Is this the one?
Mar 25 · 512
still waiting.
Nylee Mar 25
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 18
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.
Mar 12 · 429
well, she died and,
Nylee Mar 12
I can write it better or I can try cursive
well life goes whiff and I go passive
my attempts are honest, well true enough
what more should I say,
don't skim to my last page first
You have missed all the funny part
so many falls and then a flatline.

Do I belong to the place
That screams,
I do not.
Nylee Feb 28
Your gravity hit me hard and fast
But mine didn't even touch you
It just repelled out of your axis
And you still keep pulling my strings
I keep falling over my feet
The physic's law won't work for me
The biology and chemistry both
are working against me
affecting just me.
Feb 23 · 475
Nylee Feb 23
No one catch up to me
I am far too gone

There is no map to place I go
There are no lingering footsteps to where I am

You'd miss me
for a day or two
but then, time fixes it
and I'd be a distant memory
Feb 13 · 262

My end is near
My departure is here
I could write hundred more words

however I might take

Jet set
Let's leave
Leaving no trace behind
Like we never existed.

Let's escape to another world
It is not strange
If we stayed any longer
We'd bleed out
sweat, dreams and blood,
eventually like all others do.

You were the sun
Lately, all you do is
my skin.
Nylee Jan 8
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.

This new year
Nylee Dec 2020
Three hundred and sixty
the days blurred away
I have had so many thoughts
I have lost them in time and places
no memories come to mind
only insecurities in the face
all my connections hard to find
It has been a surreal time.

The lush green picturesque view framed in mind
It is the year twenty twenty
No sunshine touched my face
up and lost like every other day
nobody new came in my way
same struggles and my prayers
My hair four inches longer
the only thing grown this year

Twenty fifth year of mine,
slowly approaching
The previous decade had me
losing hope with time
I am just curiously watching
what new problems
would headline this new year
A new decade to remember.
The last poetry of the year.

Disastrous year
Nylee Dec 2020
We fought nature and lost
time and time again
What it was the year
of flash floods and heavy rains
cyclones with many names
the earth shaking,
my feet on the cracks,
was that fire still burning,
the forest all gone
the animals lost in it
oh it could not be any worse
but there comes the locusts
volcano turning up
out of blue brimming up,
the storm is coming,
it is inevitable
where to escape,
the disasters striking every corner
which direction to follow,
Towards the sky
I look for help, I try
To search for you hidden behind
all the dark clouds.

these days, I have become
Nylee Dec 2020
it is complicated
Not enough on my plate
the sea of sadness
making a mess
I've seen it grow,
Like a beloved plant
to a monstrous size
my ego falling tight.

it was a delight,
the silver losing its shine
I see it happen
many moments in my time

well, I thought I was before
jaded, but more so as
everyday it rolls,
the lustre of the big
is miniscule
I've gone through
every rule
I'll follow,
but it remains hollow.

I've not seen yet enough
but it is already enough
For me,
I'll stop, I'll be,
I'll cease if it is not to be
I'd just care
not, like I've done before.

Jaded, it is so ingrained
now in my DNA
I've felt it all
multiple times
I've soared through
caught up to
with the kindled hope
being jaded is the scope
of my life.

Nylee Dec 2020
How insecure am I
It comes out in waves
as I call out the names
it's been ever the same
as far, since I was five.

I see them
looking at me,
they can sense my nervous energy,
I can see the anxiety building up
Overflowing the cup
as I grow old.

I am okay
without anybody
But I change immediately
as I sense someone
around me.

It's just me
I feel everyone judging me,
I want high scores
but I can't act right,
I know it is impossible
to please everyone
but at those times
I just forget even to try,
it's how I am.

I do know,
I am getting negatives
because of my inactions
but I cannot calm my nerves.
It is the heart hammering
On the walls loudly,
It is hard.

My eyes
vulnerable to all eyes,
Can't you see that I
am afraid?

I am an open book
with empty lines,
with doodles at sides,
this is my mind
with more scribbles.

I can't grow like this,
I've to get over this
the world is merciless,
won't give another chance
this is it, miss the hit
you go back home.

I am nervous, I am unsure,
I am a mess, looking for cure,
my best attempt of smile
is like another big failure,
I try to speak up, more words
they flow with stammer.
Dec 2020 · 338
is it happening or
Nylee Dec 2020
Maybe I have it
It is showing its sign
Maybe it is all
inside my mind
dreaming, sleeping
all I think about

I should wrap it all up
this month's seventeenth
it will be the umpteenth
time I'd think about
should I prepare
or let it happen
the natural way.

Should I mend fences
should I grow tulips
should I throw olive branches
Or let this pass.

it is going cold
my hands are turning pale,
my eyes are burning up
the vision disappearing
I am seeing white washed walls
the chemical smell
It is happening, I am turning
It has seeped in.

My essay
Nylee Dec 2020
In this life there is
hidden misery in every sentences.
But by the end of the sentence
there is full stop,
the only sign of peace,
But more words come,
to fill my life sentence,
To write the essay I've become.

Nothing is same
Nylee Nov 2020
Day by day

Nov 2020 · 774
Nylee Nov 2020
I've been sitting on the top of the ladder
looking at the world from the high I can reach
every once in a while someone glances my way
I look back straight in the eye till they look away.

There is peace which I can attain here
no one looks down on me even if they want to
But there is nothing straight up to my height
Everything is placed below my sight.

cold touch
Nylee Oct 2020
in the winters,
the marble floors
they feel cold
my bare feet
they are frozen
i cannot move
they are stuck.

in these twenties,
the only warmth
fabric of cardigan
I pull these
sleeves till seems
cover my fingers
touch the knitted
threads to feel
beyond the numbness
of my palm.

the cool sensation
touching my face
the melancholic air
disturbing my stare
tree without leaves
the somber look
the bone chilling
stare back from
a girl sitting
on the marble
floor by the
mirror looking dead.

still awake
Nylee Oct 2020
My inability to stop my self, it is showing
It is a compulsive disorder, nothing can stop me now
I cannot control my self, I've tried million times
Resisting this urge, it is increasingly difficult
Mind won't listen, and hands don't too
I've searched your name in every space of internet
Learn new things is an accomplishment,
Look through the same old, to understand you
I am obsessed, I admit
Find me cure of this addiction now
I cannot go on like this forever, or can I?
Let me know.

the purpose of my living
Nylee Oct 2020
After all this.
I was only meant to die.

not even a speck of dust,
in this entire universe,
I am an indistinct part of the dark night sky
Oct 2020 · 343
Me, well!
Nylee Oct 2020
I am so restricted to me
That I don't see the world around me
The universal sea
I am caccooned to a well
My well-being at that

I don't see the obvious
It does concern us
It is all dubious
Too hard to understand the truth
Till it is too late

Wait, I should do that
Hey, I can't help that
Well there is no end to my rant
Wait it is happening fast
Isn't it just great!

You know, you know
I know but I don't
It just doesn't show
Too caught up in me
I lose moments of my sanity
Losing on my vanity.

a glimpse and I see
Nylee Oct 2020
all that is beloved
all that I see
it is explicitly made without me
it is no agony
just a tearful reminder
in the scapes of life
how much it matters
what really
on to the sights
gripping future
when I close my eyes
I hear the whispers
I ignore it
the best way possible
so when it is
it is like this
and a peek
through the balcony
I have taken the glimpse
in the dreams that I flee
don't bury me
