Love and pain
Raj Gomes Jan 2019
Hope for love,
but also expect pain.
Because life is real,
and not an imaginary lane.
Maybe that's the only way
to stay sane,
in a world filled with
hate and disdain.

Absence
Raj Gomes Nov 2018
Standing so close to me
I don't feel your presence.
I guess I'll just push you away,
and embrace the absence.

Numb
Raj Gomes Nov 2018
I'm fine,
I'm just not fine at all.
I'm happy,
I just can't feel it.
How weird my emotions are,
messy and unapologetic.
Maybe that's the beauty of my soul.
It shines like anything,
but is dark as coal.

Stories
Raj Gomes Nov 2018
My stories are sad, I am not.
They are like the most beautiful plots
that tragically ended,
in gunshots.

©rajgomes
Just because I'm going through a tough time does not mean I am sad or that I have given up. I am the author of my stories and even if this story ended on a sad note, the next one won't.

The lover
Raj Gomes Oct 2018
Maybe I'm the moon,
and darkness my lover.
I glow when I'm surrounded by it,
and the scars don't matter.

Love is the most beautiful feeling in the world and those who have found it are the luckiest. It does wonders, for it is the feeling that over shadows all the negativity and helps you evolve.

Eclipse
Raj Gomes Oct 2018
People watch with great anticipation,
the eclipses of moon and sun.
But what about the darkness
that covers me everyday?
The eclipse that eats me alive?

©rajgomes
How often we are covered by the dark shadow of sadness, hurt, pain and depression but no one seems to care. No one pays attention to that. People only care about the beauty of celestial objects being covered but no one seems to notice the eclipse of humans. That's not important.

Like a Phoenix
Raj Gomes Oct 2018
I shall rise.
Like a phoenix rises
from it's own ashes.
Death is not the end,
but only the beginning
of this new journey.

It is incredibly important to never lose ourselves in times of pain. Very crucial. Pain, sadness, hurt will always be there but what is necessary is to always stay strong and believe that you can rise even from your ashes, like a Phoenix does.

Warmth
Raj Gomes Oct 2018
In a world filled with stone cold hearts,
be the warmth that melts the ice
and produces love.

It's true life gets hard sometimes but please do yourself a favor and choose to stay warm and wise and solve every problem with might and be an example to others. You'll be happy.

He cries
Raj Gomes Oct 2018
It's tough when you have no one to share your pain with,
no shoulders to lean on to.
No one to hug.
And that's when he embraces the darkness of his room
which hugs him with the same intensity
as he cries his heart out.

"Men don't cry"
A lie that has been engraved in the very fabric of our society shuns the normal human feelings and puts sentimental men to shame. We are humans and we are emotional beings. It is okay to feel and to express those feelings in smiles and tears irrespective of the gender. Men too feel and should be allowed to express themselves without tags. Men cry too, and its okay.

Escape
Raj Gomes Oct 2018
There's so much I want to say,
but I cannot speak.
So much pain
which I cannot express.
I seek a God,
but do I believe in one?
I look for an escape,
but is there one?

©rajgomes
Often times it happens that we just lose ourselves in whatever pain we are going through. It's as if we cannot express our sadness nor ask for help. We cry in agony over an untold story desperately looking for an escape.

— The End —
