We are close.

I want to be closer.
Not just physically,
With me running my hands through your hair,
Or with our hands interlocked as we take long walks at nights,
Or our long hugs that makes us feel safe.

I want to be closer.
Where our minds are one and our thoughts are same,
Our heartbeats are synced as an orchestra,
My weakness is your strength and yours is mine,
And I can't hide my pain and sorrow because you see right through me.

I want us to be closer.
That when they see you they see me,
Our synergy becomes like that of the tides,
Where you are in me and I in you.

This is just all I ask of you.
either come closer or stay away
having you in between is very exhausting

Billions of people
All over the world
Are knee deep in fear
It is but the tragedy of death
That threatens to keep
The closest near.
This worldwide pandemic
Not only a punishment,
But a time for self reflection
On all that we have done:
All the bruises we have caused
All the tears we cried.
And as nature slowly heals herself
Amidst humans
Keeping their tails in check,
Sparrow song trills once again
And swans find their home,
And as rare as the golden birds.
The human mayflies
Take in a moment and
Search themselves
Clean themselves
And stay still
For once in their lives
Waiting, watching, listening,
Growing closer hour by hour-
That all those decades running
Couldn't provide,
And retort
Back to being human again.
As nature heals her
Cuts and wounds
We, her children,
Are too birthed anew.
Written based off of the pandemic.
I know you’ve been searching for something
A step forward with a million to go
But it’s alright
You’re closer than ever before

All my life,
All I wanted was attention
So much to be consumed by it
Let my ego soar
At the flow of the light of the uncertain
Towards the end of the universe

In my mind
That’s the only way to happiness
In your eyes
I’m delusional and disconnected
Far away from something genuine

But when I’m alone
I feel so far away
My thoughts become consumed
My heart becomes corrupted
If only you knew how to cure this vanity
I’d spent all my dimes
To be brought back to reality

I pull the tides closer to me
I’m more than a shining light
I play games with gravity

I know you’re sad when I’m completely gone
But just wait for the heavens
To run amok
Light always fades
But the darkness shows my true colors
Watch me go
As I overshadow the cosmos

pacify me
hold me until the sun rises
blood orange over the horizon
tell me i'm the only one
as if i didn't know
bury my fears
as deep as my head on your shoulder
hold me closer
closer, closer

closer closer closer closer
closer closer closer closer
closer closer closer closer
closer closer closer closer
closer closer closer closer
closer closer closer closer
closer closer closer closer
please?

Of all the things you could have done
You chose to walk this route
You chose to hang your head this low
To lie and sigh and pout

Amongst your loved ones you live a lie
And tell the truth you'd rather die
A road of pity, sorrow, and pain
And it's far too late to change your lane
My latest poem for the site. With everything going on right now, I need something to keep me away from the physical plane for awhile. Or at least until it comes creeping back in.

Oh this grey prison of our waking eyes,
It is colder than our long-lived and taciturn tides,
The moon smiles, beaming, upon our wavering way,
Knowing that our fervent sun will soon set fire to our new day.

This stranger pain and that neighbour sorrow,
They are jealous of the colours we are saving for tomorrow,
To blot them with night's ink is their insidious intent,
Let us hold our precious currency of colours, even until our last breath is spent.

The advent of our springtime seems as unlikely as our salvation,
Perhaps our darker clouds will begin to cry for our hydration,
Those tears would greet that arid soil like the dew drops greet the morn,
And from the dearest droplets fall, our spring is here, our spring is born.

I hate them,
'Cause sometimes
They drain me
Of all my
Energy.
Of all my
Loneliness,
Sadness,
Anxiety,
My worries.
I hate them,
'Cause sometimes
They take away
All of my
Friends.
Now that
We're all
Closer than before.
We really are.
It's a part of me.
I don't want people to take away something that's a part of me.
I hate it sometimes, but I also can't live without it.
Closed every door by myself.
Struggling even to stand up.
Burning within, back facing the floor
barely breathing
barely alive.
one thing running through my mind,
What if I knew back then
what I know right now?
What I really was
and now I'm ****** up in between!

Now is no time for whining
no place to complain.
Your aggression, turn it to focus.
Its like the fuel,
burn it to race your raging engine!
Might've been failing
but never stop trying.
After all you've been through
Or all that could've been,
now you've come closer
to what you've been doing!
