I keep relating my loneliness to love
To think that love makes me lonely
I guess... it becomes easier to sleep

To be lonely is to wait for someone
Someone...I don't know
Someone I can talk some thoughts to
which haunt me when I'm alone
Love does make people lonely
But are u in love everytime you're lonely?

not titled
I don't match your abilities
I keep fading away

It's hard to keep going
It's hard to say how I feel

I keep disappearing
from the air u breathe

I've gone too far
avoiding sympathies

I've kept pretending to be strong
that made me more weak

i have sweet tooth for evil
that's what i choose every time
the vicious is a sugar coating
devour the crusts,
can never reach the insides

not like i don't know from the beginning
i just can't listen to my mind
with every bite, i know i'm falling
blacks are a must,
i'm regretful i can't reach the whites

i feel like i must take the comfort
wherever whenever it may suffice
even if i always end up falling
even if there is pain every time but,
my fancy for evil still doesn't die
I'm trying to feel your pain

It's so hard to keep one busy
Even though there's lot to do
I get it done
                     One by one
But there's still time left
Until nighttime comes
And I ignore the fact that I'm still incomplete

Your Whorls
Today i'm playing with flowers
I love how they're delicate
I won't touch the calyx
I won't touch your firm fury
I'd strike the corolla and ruin it
It's your homeless beauty

Shortest desire
Preeti Karnwal Dec 2019
I listen to this song
until I get sick and tired of it,
I will listen to it again
to get myself addicted.

dream AND reality
Preeti Karnwal Dec 2019
they say it all feels like a dream
i can't connect to it
i just know what feels real and what feels like a dream.
when i'm dreaming,
even the most beautiful dream,
I know it's not real.
when it happens to me
something good
or bad,
I have a thought in mind
this is what reality feels like.

Who R U
Preeti Karnwal Dec 2019
The way you turn the world upside down
without the fear of getting hurt, you fall on the ground
when you start a fight just to rest in the nurse's office
it's like you have innocence filled up in pockets
how can just one smile open my heart
maybe it's becoz we're on the same star
but is it something I can't see about you
Are you being you or are you hiding your truth
maybe you don't wanna be hated you're angry with destiny
i wonder if i'll ever be the one to set you free....
Oops!!!! I became cheesy

Vileness in my Beauty
Preeti Karnwal Nov 2019
As I'm forced to feel happy on the outside
I grow sadder and sadder on the inside
I was never black and white
It is now that I feel that colours are only on the surface
I bloomed up as thorns that were sweet to everyone
Haru haru I change myself
Haru haru I put a mask on
Haru haru there's vileness in my beauty

Musical crush
Preeti Karnwal Sep 2019
Strings of my heart
Set a melody I had ignored
But it keeps ringing on in my head
It will be a beautiful song

Notes have been playing hide and seek
But align when you're near
Keys and chords, scales and notes, I don't know em
I'm getting bit by bit the harmony of you presence

Some Roses
Preeti Karnwal Aug 2019
i don't want to turn back and
erase all the thorns we planted
I want to get to the part when
I would be ready
to plant some roses

A longer Slumber
Preeti Karnwal Aug 2019
I want to sleep
For a longer while
A bit longer than it usually is
But shorter than death

Lil' cloud
Preeti Karnwal Jul 2019
'M lil' cloud
drifting away as you see
stuck between
ground n sky
i keep my distance
free to weep
weep to give bliss
bliss to you
you who needed
to hide your tears
Jul 2019 · 169
Preeti Karnwal Jul 2019
I can't give up hating you
that's the only way i am connected to you
hate is an emotion too....

He said,"aren't you afraid of me?"
I said,"I am,
I'm afraid of you,since we met."
he said,"don't show me your weak sides,
I might........"

Preeti Karnwal Jun 2019
He knows too much about me
I don't know how....
he was only a stranger
he knew my wounds,
and he made 'em scars
Is it that I'm grateful?
he was there, with me,
all this while
but I'm afraid, since we met
he looks at me, so sweet his scent
when he's soft, I'm okay
he pulls me closer, I'm afraid....

Forgettable Feelings
Preeti Karnwal Jun 2019
tomorrow, I don't wanna forget today
today's happiness, today's misery
today's essence, today's feelings
today' how i feel i wanna keep it to tomorrow
and remember that it was yesterday that i felt this happiness and sorrow
I wanna remember even if i have new feelings tomorrow
even if i have new happiness, even if i have new sorrow

Lonely Skies
Preeti Karnwal May 2019
skies are so lonely
no one touches those heights
no one finds its end
stays alone with loneliness

even clouds lay beneath
never felt the rainy tears
even tress hold the Earth
never felt its human fears

Sun too stays so far
it only seems to have night and day
moon too, just like the stars
keeps million miles away

glaring at the Earth
it has all its people
to be with it one way or another
no one to be with those lonely skies

A Garden Full of Lies
Preeti Karnwal May 2019
You are a garden
beauty lies deep
but it lies too
you seem beautiful when i see you
you are beautiful in that fragrance
is this fragrance really yours,
is it the real you?
or is it something
you hide your scent in.
Beauty withers with a little touch
and so do lies.....
to be continued.....
Preeti Karnwal Apr 2019
Sorrow filled in happiness
like how u're filled in me
miles away this distance our mistakes
but so close it may seem
keep pretending to be in another universe
honestly, we're still stuck to where the end used to be
Apr 2019 · 176
Preeti Karnwal Apr 2019
I'm so sensitive,
even songs make me feel
I get sad at a sorrowful melody
and dance to a lovely beat

I'm so sensitive,
even nature gets my heart sad
with the crying blues' rainy tears
I'll be happy when on me maple leaves shed

I'm so sensitive,
even poems change my mood,
I don't know why
It's so sorrowful reading about hamlock and crow
and so powerful reading about fire and ice

Still Some Sights
Preeti Karnwal Apr 2019
there are still some sights
that scare me to death
I shiver
until they go away
Sometimes, it's easy to say
I'm brave
but so hard to admit that
I'm scared
still i'm so glad that i can

I'm so lonely
Preeti Karnwal Apr 2019
I'm so lonely
a star shining
like a tear in an eye
surrounded by many if you see
from where you are
but they are
from where i see
million light years away
i can't even dream
in fear of falling
and i really feel like
I'm so lonely

Sing It To Me
Preeti Karnwal Mar 2019
Maybe I can't see your pain
I can't see your happiness
I can't see that u're in vain
maybe my eyes are covered in haze
i can't see what you want me to
but let me hear
let me listen to your pain
your happiness or your guilt
Sing it to me
maybe that's the only way i can understand
let your voice flow into my heart
and not leave regrets
maybe then i can understand
let the melody describe yourself
let the words rest in my brain
maybe then i can understand
so Sing to me your pain

It Ends
Preeti Karnwal Mar 2019
I don't know why i thought we had a chance
when we were already friends
but the truth is i don't wanna blame myself
but still the worst part of everything is that it ends
i miss you at nights i miss those moments
that i had maybe only with you
and even if i don't wanna blame myself
i still think about the worst part of you and me, it ends

I'm in the Dark
Preeti Karnwal Mar 2019
And I realized
even non-living things
have their shadows

The curtain in the corner

The pattern on the curtain

The texture of the pattern

It says a lot about my pains.

No reason to makeup
Preeti Karnwal Mar 2019
Her eyes were down
Sinking to the ground
Searching for the love which
Once, in you, she had found
Her hair untied
Had no reason to align
Them right for somebody
She appears red and wild
Her ears searching that voice
To listen to you, wasn't her choice
It was an addiction of her mind
Something her heart couldn't avoid
Mar 2019 · 71
Preeti Karnwal Mar 2019
thoughts play hide and seek with conclusions in my mind
it's being sleepless
pillow wet with little drops falling off my eyes
it's being sleepless
a silence so that my sister doesn't wake up but screaming inside
it's being sleepless
Mar 2019 · 120
it's pain
Preeti Karnwal Mar 2019
I can't write happiness
coz' there's none inside me
there's only pain
left for my soul to feel......
Mar 2019 · 64
I won't hide my pain
Preeti Karnwal Mar 2019
the flames are all in
and the woods are ablaze
the windows disappear
in the greyish black haze

the fire dictates the air
and the fear sweeps in
life appears to be dead
because of the searing sins

the water's of no help
it'll all be ashes quick
i'll embrace the fiery pain but
the house is on fire, i'll let 'em know, won't hold it in
Mar 2019 · 66
My Heart Is Fair
Preeti Karnwal Mar 2019
you don't deserve
my hate
coz' then u'll live in my heart

Preeti Karnwal Mar 2019
The more I try to act childish
the more I grow,
I grow every second
but still, maturity to me
is like that moon
that the tides can never reach
Feb 2019 · 55
Preeti Karnwal Feb 2019
The time is so cruel,
it is harsh,
yet so powerful
The most powerful
If you could not think
about the time that passed,
you would know, Time is,
so beautiful
I hear the time passing
and as it passes,
I hear all the things
I couldn't see
I know how beautiful the time is
coz' my memories are stuck
in the past
that my present will never be.
Preeti Karnwal Feb 2019
I was so small and he was so big.
As he ran his hand through my hair
it was unfamiliar, like the hand of a devil

then he smiled at me,
the most cruel smile of his
it was feeble, though,
but I heard it

As he came a little closer and
put his hand out from where they were supposed to be
inside me, there was an insecurity

Insecurity that I can't explain
I was a flower that had bloomed beautifully until that day
within his touch, I withered,
and my petals faded away

I could cry so I did, I could scream so I did, but
I couldn't protect myself
coz' he was so big and I was so small and crying didn't help

I've seen so many people with that cruel smile
but he was a different person
as I had grown a little, he left me with so much to bear.
Feb 2019 · 51
Preeti Karnwal Feb 2019
It's perfect coz' it's you
It's original when it's you
Your scent is beautiful
though it can't be seen
I can see the world through your eyes
It is cruel it is rude
It can't be loved neither does it love
It's sad that it made you believe
made you change
made you envy
of something that is normal
and natural.
Couldn't stand the break

The Bond Of Love
Preeti Karnwal Feb 2019
When his body lay
With no soul and no motion
She crept close to him
To his heart that was not beating

Then tomorrow, his body,
Taken away
She’s still sitting there
That was her only way

Day after tomorrow, she cried
Thinking about him
And the way he used to be
How he used to live

Now it has been a year
His soul went to live another life
And his body disappeared
In the cave of days and nights

But she’s still sitting there
where he breathed his last breath
to make her heart believe
that he's still there
takin' a break for a while....
Feb 2019 · 72
I'm Mad
Preeti Karnwal Feb 2019
I thought I was sad
because of your deeds
I cried,
which made it obvious to me
But fortunately,
those tears were my rage
Flowing out through the eyes
to keep my heart sane
Feb 2019 · 201
Fake Another Smile
Preeti Karnwal Feb 2019
I can't fake another smile
it's hard to put my lips
in that position
they're stretched and
my wrinkles are hidden
not for sympathy,
not for attention
but i just can't fake another smile.
Feb 2019 · 276
I'm Afraid....
Preeti Karnwal Feb 2019
If I ask the silence to talk to me
Would it still be with me

If I ask my shadow to stay in light
Would it still stick by my side

If I ask the tears to be happy
To cry, would it still be that easy
Feb 2019 · 47
Did it hurt?
Preeti Karnwal Feb 2019
did it hurt
when i put you through my weapons
they sure weren't so edged, as i remember
did it hurt
when i didn't hear your reasons
when my pain flew out in fury, i don't regret it though
did it hurt
honestly, my feelings were all burnt in the flames of your deeds
i couldn't care less now, even if you are greatly resentful
Feb 2019 · 167
I Don't Understand
Preeti Karnwal Feb 2019
I don't understand
Why pain is hard to understand
I want to feel your pain
And I know that I can

I look into your eyes
And it seems like a starry night
With tears so deep as an ocean and
That shine so calming as moonlight

I can hear the sound of your pain
And see it flowing inside you
Even though your lips don't utter anything
It's heart wrenching but this pain is the truth
Feb 2019 · 60
What a Misery!
Preeti Karnwal Feb 2019
through my heart, a stake of silence
a silence I can't hear a sound of
I've been obsessed,
I am obsessed with this music
that's what I've realized in this stillness
oh what a misery!
such a separation can break me
down to pieces
and I can't pick those up
without music....

Will I Fall?

Something is missing!
Preeti Karnwal Jan 2019
When I'm the happiest
Or the saddest
Something is missing
In my emotions

When I see the crying skies
It's beautiful and perfect
But I feel,
Something is missing.

When I see the reflection of moon
In the lake that I stopped by
My heart knows
Something is missing

Not that I'm never satisfied
Not that I'm always insecure
It's just that somehow
Inside me
Something is missing
You are missing!

The True Love
Preeti Karnwal Jan 2019
Her heart was so warm
when she held me in her arms
her love was undefined
her care, infinite
she had no questions
she had no disbelief
I had no fear when she was next to me
the world seems colder
than when i was within her
for her love is a blooming flower
that never withers
she didn't leave me
when i was at my worst
she kept the faded me
and gave me new colors
her soul a deep ocean
to come through her,
I don't know if i deserve
no matter how many lines i write to her glory
it's never enough

Preeti Karnwal Jan 2019
I'm happy today
when i close my eyes
I'm surrounded by darkness
but i'm happy despite that

I'm happy today
when i touch my skin
I can feel the presence of scars
but i'm happy that they aren't hidden

I'm happy today
I can look up at the weeping skies
but i can find happiness in the raindrops
as they fall down through my hair

I'm happy today
as i look down on the Earth
there are some unturned stones beneath my feet
but i'm paused for this moment

I'm happy today
as I think about the star that i cherish
it seems far away
but i'm happy that i can see it and i'll reach there one day

I'm happy today
Even if it gets painful
I'll be happy like I'm happy today
I'm happy that I'm happy again
Jan 2019 · 166
That Rain
Preeti Karnwal Jan 2019
that rain I wept kept my attention
so I couldn't see your tears
"it was never my fault" that's what i thought
and that's where I went wrong

"To hurt you, I didn't have an intention"
it created a blur
I think that i was sure, that it rained, the fault was yours
and that's where i went wrong

now it's an end to my delusion
as the skies are clear
now I want to lift the weight, say it's alright if it rained,
I beg forgiveness for my distrust.

When I Look In The Mirror
Preeti Karnwal Jan 2019
No matter how much
I cry,
It never laughs
But it seems so
to me.
Coz' I see the reflections
of their words
instead of myself
And my naked skin.
It's a cover, my skin,
to my blood
that's been lately said
to be *****
It's not so,
but it still feels that
the dirt is flowing inside me.
Saw the quote," mirror is my best friend , when I cry, it never laughs".
