maybe people are meant
to fall in love
but not meant
to be together.

i was coming to terms with this
only to find out
we werent in love.
i was.
you never loved me
you didnt feel anything for me
you tried to,
but loving someone isnt something
you can make happen.

we always said we were meant to be, right?
soulmates
perfect for each other
you said our love was pure
and real
and unbreakable.
look at it now,
its shattered.

falling in love with you
was the easiest thing
ive ever done.
falling out of love
will be the hardest.
i guess the [lovers] code has been cracked.

The moment someone knows me
The moment someone sees
I exist
I am present
I am back to being me

And so I go where noone knows me
To where I'm openly not seen
To not exist for a few hours
Is such a blessing
Not to be
The January Lasts

It's not about non-existence. It's about getting away from the self without reset. It's about being... Refreshed. And we all do that differently.
Today
Is the day,
That the light
Will bright
Over it might.

A day
like today,
A baby as cute as a doll
Was seeing light
For the first time in the night
In the arms of Mrs Samira

A day
like today,
The only popular words
In the house of Mrs Samira
Was”barkamu da daadin Kai ”

A day
like today
A baby was identified
In the family as Zeeya.

A day
like today,
A celebration was made
On her existence

And today,
A celebration is made
On her maturity.

You look...
Amazing...

Why do I see you
In this lustrous way?

Why do I lie
To myself and others
About my feelings,
Urges, and tension?

All I can do
Is sit.
Breathe in and out.

As I look across
The path that separates us,
I feel a spark.
Maybe it was sent
From above.

When our eyes meet,
I gaze deeply into yours.
I can’t even speak.

You are gorgeous.
Let me digest
Your delicious features,
And handsome looks.

You look at me,
And blush.
You understand
My expression.

Maybe...
You feel...
Something, too?

We gaze at each other,
Falling into a
Gray haze
Of friendly intention.

A sort of...
Heat,
Not to mention.

I can feel your fire,
Burning inside your heart,
Mind, and soul.

At least,
That is what
My heart
Has told
Me.

You look away,
As that flame flickers,
Giving you
Some curious jitters.

Why do we have
To play this game?
A game of interesting looks,
Dealt with cards
In the suit of hearts.

I want to look
At you, and in your
Eyes...

As I recite a poetic phrase.
One that may convey
My message.

I can’t tell you this, though.
I wish that wasn’t so.

I am only human.
So I will imagine.
I will think of you,
And in my mind,
Silently gaze.

Let me gaze.
Let me look.

Seeing you
Is all it took.

That one night,
Where we both
Took a chance,
Was fantastic.

We literally danced
In the ******* rain.

That one night,
You said you cared,
But wouldn’t dare
Get too close to me.

I felt nervous,
But I stayed flirtatious.

You took me
In your strong arms,
And found your way
Inside my body.

You literally parted
My mouth with your lips.

You said,
“Let me teach you
How to kiss.”
We laid down
In a content bliss.

We literally
Cried out in ecstasy.

Now, you tell me
You don’t think I can
Handle being just friends.
This is where our story ends.

Now, this is where
My whole world spins,
And nobody here
Truly wins.

Well, to be
Completely honest,
You broke my heart.

You said your
Cutting remark,
And now I am left alone
To walk that trail in the dark.

I thought we could be friends.
Why does our friendship
Need to end
Like this?

And why the ****
Am I always the one
Whose heart is left to bleed out
Through the cuts
Done by that friendly blade?

I want to cry,
Maybe even die.

Maybe leaving this world
Would be best for everyone.

If that is what you want,
I will say a final goodbye.

My heart is left alone
To be in a lonely,
Broken, hurt
State.

My heart is broken
For the very last time.
I won’t let it happen again.

This action
I have planned.
Premeditated.
Will make sure of it.

I have a condition
Where I put
All my heart
Into everything
And everyone.

I talk to you.
Saying things
I should not,
And expressing
My feelings.

I have a need
To show
All my heart
And compassion
To the people I meet.

When I lay in bed,
Late at night,
My heart feels an energy
And passion
Only for you.

I have a feeling
In all of my heart.
It is one of lust.
Lust and trust.
Help me, now.

Some people
Hide their emotions,
And feelings.
I’m the opposite.
I wear them on my sleeves.

I have a condition
Where I put
All my heart
Into everything
And everyone.

Something doesn’t
Feel right.
I thought there were
People here.
I can’t stop
This feeling of fear.

I walk down
The long
Deserted pathways.
“You’re never alone,”
He always says.

I feel off.
I wish there
Was a sign.
A whistle,
Or a slight cough.

I feel all alone
In this building.
I want to scream.
The noise would
Echo up
To the ceiling.

Where did they go?
I really don’t know.
They have abandoned
This place.
I need to see
A familiar face.

Just one person
Would do.
Their presence
Would help me
See it through.

One thing
Is for sure.
I am all alone.
I feel ice cold,
Like a stone.
All alone...
