What it takes for a poem to trend
I fail to understand
When you expect the least
It trends and trends
When I am serious and deep
The poem flops like a fish on the deck
May be I "No Poet" category poet!

Arching to touch the ground.
A flexible object,
The tension fixing on the centering point.
A flexible object,
Pulled down at both ends.
A flexible object,
Waiting to stretch out.
A flexible object,
Snaps into two.

the world suffers with and without me
all things take shape in the way it was meant to be
my attachment to it could affect only me
it breaks me when I am apart from it
when I am not part of bigger things
and they surround me.

not included in movements
missing out on various moments
loss being heavy on me
and tasting the feeling of envy
I like and dislike this and that
but no one ask me of what I think
every one has thoughts of their own
and things are working out just fine.

a disconnected environment
in a deeply wired mess
nothing works as expected
more or less.

I adore you from afar
not expecting anything
Admiring you
is the sweetest inspiration

But a chance came,
you started to notice me
And one day
you message me out of nowhere

I feel butterflies in my stomach
and started to scream under my pillow
I can't suppress my emotions
and start telling it to my friends

But I've noticed
a lot of red flags
all over you
But still I like you

I still continue talking with you
even though I knew
that you will not like me
I still take the risk

And gave you my body
without any hesitation
And now I'm Just laughing at myself
Because I knew that it's it the only thing you will like about me.

And now you're gone.

I hate how people can change their minds
When you changed yours it changed both of our lives
Even though I had not changed mine

I never changed, and that's what hurts
Looking back now realizing you had hoped I would
Maybe you thought that I was unsure
Even though I told you exactly what I was looking for
Maybe you expected me to one day want a plan like yours

But I didn't
What a shame you put us in this position

a sunrise never promised you a sunset,
but you expected it anyway
as my skies turned gray immediately
in your disappointed eyes

Verse 1:
Our eyes meet
Feel the heat
Have to take a seat
For a beat
I can't speak
Can't even breathe
You sweetly sweep me
Off my feet completely
Weak in the knees
Can't help but stare at your back
Hoping you'll look up and stare at me back
I would approach you but I lack the tact
Fuckboys all that I attract
Does not take a genius to see that
Out of my league and that's a fact
Working up nerve to make some sort of sound
That exact instant you turn around
I tell by your smile you feel the butterflies flutter
In your gut
Get up
Put one foot in front of the other
Strut towards me
I am struck
Muscles melting like butter
Ask for a light
My voice is stuck
But I stutter
A muttered reply
****** up
Not even drunk or high
You ignite not just your cigarette
But a fire inside
Exciting sides of me I thought had died
I can't hide

Hook:
I'm a spacebound rocketship and your heart's the moon
And I'm aiming right at you
Right at you
250,000 miles on a clear night in June
And I'm so lost without you
Without you

Verse 2:
I finally feel like I have reason to live
Maybe an angel like you could forgive
For the things I couldn't give
For all of the dumb things I did
****
No joke
I tripped over you and fell
Too deep of water to swim so I flail
For a moment forget where I am and can't tell
Apart from copycats imitating well
Be exactly like us
They want to excel
In a phony heaven but life is really hell
Scream my color but the world is black and white
And backdrops move but you remain in my sight
But you found me alright
The truth in dead of night
Like a screenplay I might write
And for once get it right
Sitting there in front of me like I got my happy ending tonight
I felt simple for the first time in my over-complicated life

(Hook)

Verse 3:
Processing in your head what the **** I just said
Marriage is a concept way over your head
So you reject my proposal with a shake of your head
and break my heart as easily as you break communion bread
Walk all your good intentions out the door instead
If you don't want to spend your life with me you might as well be dead
Alas the long awaited impending end has arrived with dread
I grasp at missed chances but every last one has fled
My mind keeps on warping
How much more can it bend?
Till it finally is broken?
Hoping for days tears will end and peace will be awoken
I toss and leave my fears with you to keep as a token
Use silence because this time goodnight is better left unspoken

Bridge:
I should have never expected you to feel the same
I shall embrace the misery and face the constant pain
Escape from day to day sorrow and give in to the stress
While body sleeps my brain will fly away and reminisce

(Hook)
I tried to write my own lyrics to Spacebound by Eminem but I feel like I failed

you said you'd never leave,
but even I know that sometimes
it rains when it's not supposed to

Stranger, Stranger
Save me today
Please come to me, my love
okay
Stranger, Stranger
For once just stay
It's not fair I'll never get to say

At once some time I've not known you
Yet now we share a bond that's new
A crystallized informality
You've been ingrained into my memory

I saw the somber in your eyes
I could have made you feel alright
I sat silent, composed and shy
You'll never know me, to that I
sigh...
In every stranger...there is one that'll attract a ghost...
