Sad confusion
Nylee 2d
I am in a constant zone of feeling
sad and not so
and I am tired of feeling anything
at all
Nylee 2d
All my friends are faces of people
With no friendly feeling for me.
They are not bad humans,
Just not good friends to me.
When I am in crowd, they don't see me
A smile and nod, they're free
We talk and they talk
I feel out of the flock.
They like to know what happened,
They get the info and gone.
I feel the most lonely
Not when I'm alone
But in my friend's company.

True colour
Nylee 3d
The drapes are old
The blankets are cold
The lies are told
In the darkest hour

The secrets revealed
documents are sealed
The glass is filled
With the money power

An evening in and out
with screams and shout
millions of doubts
No one is sure

Finally the truth comes in
And more people lying
Words are out, start hiding
Everyone sees the true colour

I'll stay
Nylee 6d
Keep me far
And I'll stay right there.

Rusty luck
Nylee 7d
An evening to be,
A reason to envy.
Greener the face,
It is for the better
A few weeks late.
Dismay to display,
every more reason
more cards to play
To lose it at higher,
as stakes go to roof.
Money not wonder
Luck again rusts red
Lonely left in bed.

Not sleeping well
Nylee Nov 4
So this happened
And that too
The mind is alive
Not coming to
It is 3am
On my bed since 11
My eyes are wide open
Not sleeping at all.
Nylee Nov 1
I am out of blue
I am feeling the absence of  .
Red is away too
Anger, love and passion in   .
Not too sunny
Not enough green
The pink even sparser than  .
And there is brown
Every thing I have has  .
There is rainbow somewhere
But the grey clouds pull    .
And there are shades of each
Sepia is what becomes the  .
Game: to fill the incomplete sentences with words
Nylee Nov 1
Everyone have different beliefs
different things to believe in
So who should I believe
When the world is on
a different view

Nylee Oct 31
There is an essence of misery in everything
It is just me or is it the things
But it sticks to my skin
And I find nothing else
My desires pull me in
Leave me completely empty
The hidden sadness flows in waves
In one second, my smile leaves

Lost dreams found me
Nylee Oct 25
My dreams have changed
All I see now when I try and sleep is
To get a dream of good night sleep.
My life is more alive when I am asleep
It is a beautiful feeling
Waking up with a smile

Unwanted companion
Nylee Oct 23
The pain shoots through
lives beneath the surface
touch me not, it will start again
being careful enough is not helpful
Weighs you down, you think only  .

The bright world continues life,
the feeling and thoughts distracted.
The bones feel weak, cracked up
Less pressure to the area
I close my eyes before the pain begins.

There is no right position,
It hurts and hurts more every time
It edges over a fine line.
You get through with the blurred vision
With pain a lasting companion

Nylee Oct 23
I am in constant dilemma
To be them or to be me
Who do I choose
When everyone else is them
And I do not know
Who is me?

Fighting cycle
Nylee Oct 21
Wondering about this
this memory brings up that
that night was so cold
Coldness after the fight
Fought with sharpest words
Words fell like bullets

The day was chilly too
Too silent the next morning
morning light was faded
fading memory but guilt
Guilty feeling blues feel
Felt the silence ****

The evening was short
Short conversation starts
Started random talks
Talked everything but problem
Slowly we forget
Forgotten why we fought

It is a routine
Routine continuing
Continuous cycle running
Run to same beginning
Beginning of another talk
Talk that ends with fight.

I am parched
Following the craze
I am dying with hunger
But walking towards
the wrong direction
I am famished
feeling the thirst increase
dying with unease
cannot find what I need
In the places where I am searching

Cover up
Nylee Oct 20
Burning flame
It doesn't disappear
What we fear
It brings back our shame
I know I hide the flaws
I cover it up nice
But it is inevitable
That it will find its face
and my efforts will go to waste
Oct 20 · 83
Nylee Oct 20
I waited
It is live now
Buzzing with words
It feels nice
After long time
The storm begins

What happened to me?
Nylee Oct 11
I was never this vulnerable before,
with the increasing exposure
I feel it all the time
So coward and not confident at all.
The changes occured in these few years
have boosted up my lingering fears.
The world has changed,
while I'm still the same.

The night is here
Sleep is away.
I count the bats
Fly away.

So far,

The path ahead have dead ends
Let's go off road

Owl Luck!!
Nylee Oct 8
It is the night time
Owl's eyes look right at mine
the eerie silence fills in
But I look away first, coyly look back,
Keep gazing eye to eye
I'm hoping to grow wise overnight

Wet paint!
Well it is.
Obviously I'll try
The sign was right
stuck to my hand
the colour green
I facepalm!

Nylee Oct 5
You know what
I am sad.
You know what
That isn't least bit surprising.
You know what
You'll learn that if you have read
more pieces of my work.
You know what
I guess I should stop.
You know what
But I can't.
You know I feel like telling you
all the things that happened to me.

You know what
I hope you are ready to listen.

Sun light
Nylee Oct 4
Punching the numbers
I get the feeling of being lost
In the sequence of the memories
I feel my feet touch the ground
So when I open my bag
There is emotional side of me
Flickering in the dark.

Down in the pitch black
I look for the tiny spark
In the stories of old age
I look forward to happy times
And then I pull up myself
Found that I can stand
for a while more for a start.

The dark clouds clear and move
The sun makes the way
When mountains stand in path
From a valley it shines
And I know in truth
Darkness guides to
The road of eternal light
When no other lamps make you sway

Breathing Problem
Nylee Oct 3
Whilst the world wilts,
Sunshine dims,
River stills in between,
Winds are hurrying
The seasons are changing.

And we throw another plastic bag
We suffocate our lifestyle
Killing our species in style
Make it harder to breathe.

Living artist canvas
Nylee Sep 27
Art speaks words unheard,
   The feelings paints pictures unseen.
       It is beauty
and drastic ideas combined
      A mix of pleasure and pain
      All experiences add a different taste
        Rough edges and smoothness entwined.
Touch it and fall into a dream
The artist lived and lives within

Revealed out
Nylee Sep 26
It was just yesterday I revealed little of myself to you. Then again I changed within hours and discovered a little more of myself.

Standing in the mirror, the reflection and the light flicker. The candle flame added another warm shade as part of me fade away.

A plunge ahead comes with fall to follow, it is easy when we walk slow. The pace of my thoughts is lost, ahead of me in its exploration.

Someday there will be ease, hopefully with more of the inner peace. The sweater will keep me warm, my armour will save me from harm.

So open to the world and vulnerable for a second and more, shields up in moments later. Trust escapes and gets captured in a matter of time.

It is dizzy and not, words in world and too many thoughts. Aging but learning, drowning but burning, the ironies are shining bright.

Give and Get back
Nylee Sep 25
In the immense serene life
The world is unreachable
The fullest is a small me
For numbers bigger than infinity
I give so little, less than my capacity
I get the same back, why I complain
Waste more time in disdain
Cribbing about unfairness
Comparing me to them.

Blurry Reality
Nylee Sep 25
A**** real and reality
I follow the blurred real pictures
Which spiral away from divinity

Game of vice
Nylee Sep 24
The more we know, the less we say
All the words spoken have consequences
The more is told in silences
The words omitted but heard clearly
What we listen, the crafted words
They deceive the ears that surrounds
Every other agenda works on
What favours whose manipulation
The smile contains no smile
The efforts put to take another mile
Snooping and buttering on sides
Friends and foe, no one decides
Act so nice, what is inside
Dress so good, please all eyes
Help when it is noticed
Out of sight then vanished
Deceptive tricks up the sleeve
It matters not whom we believe
All playing game with roll of dice
Keeping friends close, enemies closer

How to swim?
Nylee Sep 17
When I was young
I always thought I'll fly
Fly away from this land
to the sun.

As I grew taller
I realised there is more sea
it is too deep
for me to see.

Still on my foot
not going higher or far
Sitting in the comfort
I keep an eye on the shore.

The waves are taking away
all things I want to achieve
Because I haven't learned yet
how to swim.

No grey
Nylee Sep 15
A clear sky
No grey sight
With fist full of desires
green dreamy eyes
I fly away

A new day
Nylee Sep 8
Out doing regular business
going around with the natural finesse,
forgetting all the achievements and less
starting this morning a fresh.

Me version 2
Nylee Sep 4
Everyone's allowed to be themself
Why do i care what they think about myself
I can never trust, it is just
So hard to be me when I am with them
Because they define what I ought to be
And I can't control myself to be me
The version they expect of me from me

The image I made, they painted
The original is lost beneath the skin
All the words that I speak and mean
I mean it different than what I say
There is another depth in me I can't display
It is kind, all well defined
Role I need to take, for their sake

Another page turn
There is a full stop
A new chapter begins
With fresh black ink.

Truth in truth

In truth, there is no blame
Truth exist just as is

It just remains

Mirroring Smiles
Nylee Aug 8
It is your smile which mirror's mine
I have made the boundaries
To build my own confines
Your footsteps behind mine
They make a rhythm and the rhyme.

The desire will not completely die
but a little more distance
can make a lot of difference
But all efforts are waste
When I gaze into your eyes.

It is just the rush of all feelings
all of a sudden ready to burst
I keep my breathe even
and let out few words to part
Sometimes the resisting is hard.

It is better to just dream at night
design the things getting perfect
Then to face you daily
embarrass myself incredibly
To see your smile mirroring mine.

Ain't no difference
Nylee Jul 5
I am more tired for tomorrow
and it is still morning at the moment
the roses are blooming now
And the home is three hours away
The trains have not been patient
the rush was pushing anyway.

The late hours were not on time
Delayed more minutes
news had updates on all the crimes
And the gossip was juicier today
The work had piled up in the corner
More the files in dark grey.

The formals have been slightly tucked out
The shine of shoes a twinge faded
The future it is all about
Stretching the day to the night
The sofa, the safe haven
A few bites with family.

The exhaustion catches up
and the midnight hunger grumbles
The notifications don't let the sleep top
The yawns are stretched wider
The life of fatigue and endless routine
Tomorrow is ain't gonna be any different.

I am lost

Isolating me
Nylee Jun 14
They left me alone
I asked them to leave
They didn't want me
so they did better to forget me.

Nobody returned
to ease my loneliness
I played with my shadows
with dim lights.

Three empty chairs
next to mine
the obvious silence
getting to me.

I wait by the window
Door is slightly opened
but I won't go out.

Understand me
Nylee Jun 9
I need to speak
       you have to understand
               my unspoken desire
   I will vent
patiently wait.

Sometimes I cry
not knowing why
but please try
        I will be the best for you
                        when you will feel the worst
things will be fine
and at times
our some time will last forever.

Faded Red

Watching the roses fade
another one escapes
the life has been lived
and has gone with the wind.

Nylee May 28
All the five hundred drafts and counting
I am so bad at finishing
Each line lyric rhyme
Hoping for a masterpiece
Or a mirror to my mind
Nothing is certain till it ends
And it twists all the thought.

A surprise for few lines
An emotion to hide
Many people to confide
Some memories to write
A few to ignite
Each word to choose
and another to bind.

Inert satisfaction
a final completion
First to last transition
Inking blues
And curves in precision
An unknown outcome
Likesome to troublesome
to be posted on a wall

Big Burden
Nylee May 23
The perfect has
more than million years to come
Till then let us learn
from all the mistakes we have become
We are far from done
And we already carry this big burden
May 22 · 298
Has anything changed
Nylee May 22
I see no difference.

All the feelings beat the same rhythm
Heartbeats caught well on machine.

Time has prospered
everything is different
I feel all the same.

New avenues
World is at reach
Our stories all sneak
With touch and flick.

advancement in nooks and corner
But problems are growing
ever increasing
the time does not feel any longer.

Every stitch at nine
Life not working as design
It is getting harder to breathe
All the pollution at its peak
Everything is toxic.

Verses of time
Nylee May 18
Back then in the time
an another lifetime
Everyone was poet
Writing deeper meanings
with every line
Everything they wrote
all inked with gold
Letters and pages
Better at stages
all still strikes the chord
Time has not been that lost

Lost poetry
Nylee May 8
Some poems I just cannot see
I feel it little light and empty
But I know they are there
Where are they lost
Missing the thought
Seems like it is my loss

Cause I only play in the darkness

Love the Earth
Nylee Apr 23
My life started on it
I have run over a million times
my little legs to huge feet
got enough space to walk on.

the beauty in water and landscapes
I have thought a million times over
accepting all kinds of sizes and shapes
The tree spread over gives me the shade

The oxygen and life spreaded all over
The bounty of love given to us
A sleep in between the blue and green cover
home to lives of the minutest

The one sided love has stressed the earth
It's aging twice to thrice extra every second
Our toxic nature has done enough hurt
A day of remembrance is just not enough
