Dear capricious heart,
I’m sorry for leaving you at the door step of my past self.
I know you’re built with wings that can’t take you to the sky,
But I was made of broken bones, my identity split between a continental divide,
And I was yearning for the moment that I’d come to terms with ambiguity.
Now I feel at ease,
knowing you’ve found comfort in the changing of the seasons,
And I have conquered the impossible task of hearing you beat without apprehension
A cloud rests on the surface of the earth
and my heart, like a paperweight,
tethers me to the stormy waters.
I can’t foresee where I’m heading.
But there’s something in the heavy air
compelling my lungs conform to the feeling
of letting go
I eek out meaning
where I want it
twist your tongue into
the shape of words
you didn’t know
you wanted to say.
Then, you ask,
how we got
to the centre of the maze,
our footsteps covered
with pine needles
and no breadcrumbs
to lead us back out
of the dense hedges.
We would not be
in the dark
if you had not
The ribbon of our lives
tied by our emotions.
Eternal, just like
my emotions for you.
Thirsty for more,
but never attainable.
Some of these poems have no titles. Also as per usual, the images have no reference to the poems, any relation is creation of your own design. They're old poems I found from high school - college. They're mostly terrible but I don't like keeping the old papers. So.. here. © 9 minutes ago
Within the seconds between night
In dusk and in dawn,
I dwell in the grey
And balance the moon and the sun.
The sadness and frigidness are there
When there is no clear communication
Ambiguity is present
Along with a cryptic situation
Nothing but darkness
When words are left unspoken
You block your blessings
As things are sadly blown out of proportion
Love is not
Ensuring life full of
'Taste her Mind' anthology compiled by Aarthi Sampath, now available on Amazon where i got the opportunity to co-author and share my world with yours. So If you like you can grab your copies from Amazon.
Regret is not a choice
that you can be sure of
here and now
but never again
shall we be free
I cannot know

A light flickers for five seconds.
A light goes dark.
A light shines for five seconds.
A light goes dark.
All is light, all is dark.
All is scene, all is lost.
In all the light, all I see is you.
In deepest dark, all I seek is you.
When the light blinds my eyes,
You’re what brings me sight.
When darkness steals my eyes,
You’re presence holds me tight.
Through sharpest light, and darkest night.
With love - slyfox
