A Poem


Poems are

my only solace

They've been with me

Through and through.


People come.

People go.

Words once penned,

Always stay.


Throw my way

hugs or hurls

It'll find life

in my rhymes.


Mock all you want

hurt me, criticize

As long as I can write, 

I'll be fine.

The Whore

After every splendid time,

You show me where I stand.

When moonlight comes I keep you warm

When daylight comes, you're gone.


I admit, it is my fallacy,

To think I'm more than fantasy. 

Beggars can't be choosers, I understand

Nor can whores, I know.


But, when I see you at my door

I see beyond carnal desires

I take you in, as my lover for life

Forgetting you're here for a night.


Though each time, you leave me broken

I tend to my bleeding wounds

Making sure, I heal in time

Before your next visit is due!

Dont Try

 Don't Try.


Ugly. 

Repulsive.

Undesirable.

Lovers run at your sight.

So don't try.


A bag of worries.

A can of worms.

Bare your soul -

That's all they see.

So don't try.


Walk this earth,

Until your time comes.

For to end it - 

You don't have it in you.

So don't try.

Cry

Cry.
One day
your tears
have to dry.

Maybe,
it might be
on the day,
you die.

So,
until then
just cry. 
But, cry.

Choices make me

Don't pursue me

Let me go

You made your choices

So, let me be.


There's no turning back

Not this time around

I'm choosing myself now

Though I'm bruised and sad.


All wounds don't bleed

And cannot be seen

We were badly broken

Yet each other, we tried to heal.


Let's us both be birds, free

Pursuing faraway heavens,

I pray you find yours

But from mine, please don't keep me.

Incomplete

What are we but stories -

some told, some untold

and some lost in between

chapters, as they unfold.

 

What are we but memories -

some happy, some cold

Some lost in grey zones

in between them both.

 

From chapter to chapter

we move in hope

that the next one will be

different from the old.

 

We chance upon an empty page

To fill in, there's plenty of space

Only to realize, the ink is up

An unfinished work, we'll remain.

Cursed

To be loved

To be missed 

To be noticed

To be wished. 


To be craved

To be shielded

To be saved

To be heeded


To make you feel 

that you belong

And take note,

when you are gone


To walk beside you

Even when you cry

To walk behind you

When it's silence you crave


To hold you closer

Till you want to be held

To tighten the grip

And keep you from hell


To reflect, to mirror,

To calm, to appease

Don't we all deserve

Such love, and such peace?
