Shedding tears and laughing in her memories is a movie watched on loop by me.

Story of granny about the deceased shining as a star is the force driving me into asking all stars the reason for her deviation from the path of her promise of never leaving me alone.

Silences are her replies if she really exists in any of the stars.
Silhouttes of dark circles under my eyes is the waiting for her reply.

Her betrayal is a fire and I'm its victim.

an ancient lyric, come to haunt,
no longer a shield, now thinner,
of gossamer consistency,
a tissue-thin papyrus,
“my poetry to protect me”

the poem words always were
a clarinet reed, capable of singing,
a highest pitch voice for turning
blades of clean steel clean away,
now blunting paper bunting, penetrated.

re-formed my shield, re-purposed,
into a stabbing instrument offensive,
my poetry pricking tearings in my worn
thin fabric tapestry, woven from linen
excuses of why I can’t, why couldn’t I.

this is life. moats becoming drowning
pools, castle walls reversed to entrapments,
wrecking machines, boulders hurling,
medieval defenseless against modern rhymes
giving away to free verse horde onslaught.

too late to apologize to myself, alas, my words,
my protectorate, island redoubt, now ruined
by doubts treachery breech birthed from within,
these verses hollow point bullets engineered,
Caesar’s words clarified, you, et tu, are Brutus
too, two, for the price of one, betrayer and betrayed.

If someone, you trusted the most betrays you.
People blame you for trusting him "Blindly"
and also quote "Trust No One".

But have you ever seen anyone pointing their fingers
at the person who betrayed you, looking him in the eye
and asked him why would he do that to you
or how dare he betray you or anyone?

No! right?
I feel, the people, the society encourages this betrayal and the betrayers.
If anything such happens around you,
stop giving free pieces of advice and
stop backing him(the betrayer) up.
You better warn the betrayer not to betray anyone
and also quote "BETRAY NO ONE"

What kinda foolish statement is "Trust no one"?
How can you not trust anyone?
So everything you do is just drama!
Acting like you trust him/her,
that's where these betrayers come from.
They are you, who sit silently when betrayal happens
You got to trust! Nothing works without trust!
Why is it, not trusting anyone even an option?
Let's say let's "BETRAY NO ONE"
Every time I look at your picture, I can't believe you left me.
It breaks more than just my heart that you are gone.
This is more than a heartache

Though to the world you were just a person but to me you have always been the world
I miss you, The biggest void in my soul has been created by you
I loved you with every fluid in my being
Yours Affected

Did she die?

far away to foreign land
off the cross pearl
settle down with the nearest knife by my side
and in the year of the plague
jump back into the heaven
you can’t get it straight
if you double track from hell
to make sure of yourself
in Gomorrah
the medicine man has the cure for your troubles
as we stagger to the next parlor for another
round of joy
but then the air gets thin
with the sweet rise of misery
follow the trail to Sebastian road
pluck out the arrows or suffer at will
in Gomorrah
if i stay here any longer than i should
might as well meet the maker
into the orange house
to where she said to meet
but without a pause
a light arose
falling forward onto the ground
to make a safe bet
i never knew what was to come
in Gomorrah

I saw this damsel in a restaurant sometime last week.
She looks more like a girl I used to know.
She glows in her chocolate skin, and radiant physiognomy.
Elegant, with dazzling eyes, she's pleasing to the eyes.
I was amazed at the closed resemblance, and was stealthily glancing...
But lo!
She caught my eyes.
I smile at her and she smile back with a friendly smile that dazzled me even more.
She had the same smile as the girl I used to know.
I pretended to be minding my business, then squinted her again, only to see her touching her neck in the same manner the other girl used to habitually touch her neck.

There and then I concluded that they would have the same behavior.
I just stood up and walked away after emptying my bowl.
Not Again will I fall

Don't look into my eyes,
if all you do is lies.

don't bother ask how i fare,
when you don't really care.

don't wake my feelings,
for just no reason.

and please don't fake it,
when you really don't mean it.

I gave all i ever had to you,
it is so surprising,
seeing you break it to two.

You stab me at the back,
and then,
you twist it in.

I needed you to survive,
in-turn i got attacked.
when love hurts, and you wish not one
