Poetry

Your heart was my home For a very long time It exuded a sense of belonging Like nothing else ever before I stayed there for as long as I could Till that home started falling apart Its foundation, exhibiting its crooked parts It tested my patience, strength, and love Till I became so numb The walls started crumbling in Finally, I couldn't help but succumb. I thought it’d be the only place I’d ever live I thought it’d be that sublime But then I busted my cupid’s bubble By realizing that people change places All the fudging time The more…


…but I can

I can’t walk with you in this life
But darling, don’t fear
I can fly with you tonight
I can’t hold your hands right now
But I can feel your touch, so tight

I can’t hear your words today
But they are echoing in my head
It remembers your voice & what you say
I can’t look at you this morning
Or many mornings till we meet again
On the other side of this plain
But why is that
Every person I meet
Or every face I see
Reminds me of how you used to be?

There is so much…


A poem

There was a time I told you
I’d love you at all times
unconditionally — with all my breaths
but maybe then, I loved myself a little less…

I said I’d love you even if you didn’t
but isn’t love supposed to be heaven and not a sin?
I said I’d stick by even if you scream
and I cry
I do not know if I was stupid or naive
or maybe I too needed you to survive
but if I loved you because I needed you
wasn’t it conditional after all?

what is love, anyway? does love mean loving…


A poem

Back when we were kids
We saw each other as if
We were the only ones
In the whole wide world

Now we look around
Our eyes keep searching
For one another
We cannot find our
Little lost world

There was a time
I thought I didn’t know how to
Breathe without you
Here I am
Inhaling .. exhaling .. just fine
Breathe? I don’t know
Let’s just close it before it blows

Finding us is now like
Finding salt from sugar
We know our world still exists
But it’s so hard to figure

It’s closer in our dreams now…
