Forever awake
Sushant Jan 13
Everytime I close my eyes,
I see my world burning down.
There's this fire behind my eyelids
that the tears can't put out.

She'll burn out and
he'll fade away in the haze.

We're dark inside

wind/rain

A star
Sushant Mar 2019
You and I, we are just crawling;

Had you not held me so close to you,
you could have been shining like a
star.

Lying on the seabed
Sushant Mar 20
At the bottom of the ocean,
my heart feels warm
and my eyes shine.
My lungs fill with water
and the flowers
that you planted
start to bloom.

Long night

Everyday

lost/found

Lost in the wilderness
yet I've never felt so free.
I hide from the moon because

Destiny

Summer love
Sushant Oct 2020
We stayed up for days,
smoked extra packs to stay ablaze.
But the summer mornings
slowly turned into winter haze.
So we laid out our love for the last time
and then let it die in our gaze.

Bruises

the wrong places.

despondent

Your last smoke,
untill you smoke again.
You're drenched in despair,
but what else did you expect?
You fell asleep under the rain.

Incomplete

I had to leave every poem about her
half-written.

Delhi
Sushant Dec 2020

shameplants pretending to be an oak.
The city of broken hearts,
hides under its own smoke.

Warmth
Sushant Aug 2020

You and I

Sad rhymes
Sushant Sep 2020
All those words that you spoke,
they're all tied around my throat.
That's why everything that I ever wrote
sounds like it's part of a suicide note.

Somewhere East

Bury me under the fields of blue orchids,
somewhere in the east; away from the city
and the rest of the deceased.

Smoke

So predictable
Sushant Oct 2020

just a repetition of things that
I wish I could ignore.

City lights
Sushant Aug 2020
Just to catch a glimpse of you,
I stayed up for endless nights
but I couldn't see a single star
because of the city lights.
209 · Oct 2020
Cold
Sushant Oct 2020
The city's so cold;
It doesn't care if I bleed
but I guess I'm just as ignorant
for I keep writing to you,
all this **** that you'll
never read.

You
Sushant Aug 2020
You
Loved myself roughly in free verses
but always loved you in rhymes.
For myself, I chose curses,
to have you never ending times.
-Aditi Bajaj
A friend wrote this 2 years ago. I'm posting it here because I love it too much and also because I'm not able to write anything new

Porcelain lips
Sushant Jun 15
Porcelain lips; she didn't feel a thing.
Didn't even kiss me back,
left me ridden with guilt.
Had to throw up all night
to make room for another drink.

2am realisations

Stolen moments;
I could never call them mine.
I know a thing or two about heartbreak; Oh for ****'s sake I loved you on borrowed time.

lies

leaving me underneath.

Wish

you look at him but he's looking at her.

Shivers
Sushant Jan 7
She looks into my eyes
and sings to me,
the songs that I wrote.
Shivers run down my spine
as she wraps her cold hands
around my throat.
119 · Sep 2020
Talk
Sushant Sep 2020
She doesn't want to talk, just wants me to hear what she has to say. I look into her eyes and she looks away.

Echo
Sushant Feb 9
Your hollow words
echo inside my mind
like the scream of birds
that are born blind.

Holding on to it
Sushant Oct 2020
I hold on to our memories; that's all that I'm
left with, don't you see?
They might be wounds for you but they're
sutures for me.

Tired
Sushant May 27
I grew up on barren lands,
to me, the spring rains bring no hope.
I'm tired of searching for grasslands.
I'm at the end of my rope.
78 · Sep 2020
Eyes
Sushant Sep 2020
She hides all her lies
behind those placid eyes;
melancholic like purple skies.

Starless night
Sushant 5d
All I can see are embers from the dying coal.
I can feel the winter breeze whistling through my soul.
My hair is wet from the midnight mist.
I can't feel my nose or my lips.
Desolate, this place and I. It feels as if no one else exists.
Cerebral rumbling, I can hear the sirens of apocalypse.

— The End —
