Spring came too soon

The aromas rose And rode the wind North The warm winds Bloomed every flower.   Slowly dying yet The winds of winter Were still brewing Behind those bushes.   Dampness Was replaced By the sun At noon.   Your palms Were warm again And the chameli In your hair was infectious.   You ride the […]

July and June

Caffeinated

Its been 3 days  Living in my own head  Thinking whether  I have lived a minute  In yours.  Unloving you is hard  When you smell that good.  Its hard to learn  About love  From you because  You never loved me.  You, an ocean of tears  I, a sinking ship You wept   As I drowned.  I […]

We had the names of every planet on our […]

Him

“Him” The first time was blurry, The image of people lying beside me, My mother tells me, My eyes were glassy, I was too small, Memories and words spoken I cannot recall, But I must have sensed him, And he must have sensed me.   The second time is more recent, I was afraid and […]

Days after goodbye 

Convulsions of lungs For monotonous breathing Seems unnecessary At best   Blinking slowly. Chewing skin at the Torn ends of lips That are drying   Not because they haven’t Seen your lips. But because I couldn’t Bother to hydrate them.   I carress myself These stains of Holi Pink and red are Almost permenant.   […]

I was a different man, a person who was probably blaming himself for everything, crashing relationships, it was like my soul was being ripped apart into pieces. It felt like my dark cold side was taking over, as if the only way to escape this trap was to let the dark side take over my […]
