You sometimes
find it very tiring
to go on
that you tend
to end the
sentence with
punctuations:

!
when you are happy

?
when you seek for answers

...
when everyone left you hanging

and with these
I came to wonder


haven't we forgotten
the essence
of taking a break
in between emotions?

Until I found
comfort in
a semicolon
;

learn to take a rest
when you feel tired;
then go on

there’s
something
comforting
about
the
vacancy
in
­my
heart

There's a girl
Behind the windows
Waiting for the Moon
So she may smell it
As she is blind

It's time for a name
Not to be just another 'name'

To anyone who lost a life
You didn't die in vain

Colour doesn't matter
Inside we're all the same

It's time to stop the suffering
It's time to stop the pain

I’ve
built
a cage
around
my
heart.

Not
to keep
you out,

but
to keep
you in.

Captive

Leaves on branches
break away and blow free.

In search of hale
untrodden ground.

Seemingly sturdy trunk,
bent to a slouch.

Captive roots half-emerged
from its earthly bound.

Someday,
I hope to feel it,

not just hear it,
but actually feel it,

when someone says
they love me.

I spent last night
Crunching numbers

10
Times you led me on

9
Nights we stayed up talking

8
Weeks since you decided I wasn’t worth it

7
Crushed up poems on the floor of my room

6
Outfits thrown aside to make sure I look my best

5
Days I spent trying to get over you

4
Friends that know what we did

3
3 a.m FaceTime calls

2
Coats of mascara

I’m a hopeless romantic masquerading as a heartless cynic.
