    The crippled heart shall always beat,

    and ache, and beat, and ache; retreat to the lands of longings, fantasy. Can you feel when your soul speaks? The walking dead with living grief lose peace when love and pain compete in battles filled with casualty. Can you hear when your soul speaks? The...

    Think You Can Guess It?

      Whitened wind-cracks, spreading the seam Salted with sea-spray, Granted no gleam…   Wear-beaten tea-stains, flapping with glee Unweaving what’s woven Now! What can be seen?

    No Way Out

    Sadness fills my soul, I don’t know why, alone in the darkness I’m finally free to cry. I need some excitement back in my life. It’s not enough just to be a mother and wife. Is there anyone who has found their true love, spending the life you've always dreamed of? Is what...

    Lust

    I feel it first in the shocking coldness of your fingertips against my bare stomach Suddenly consciousness, awareness Breathing I inhale moist salty air Colors explodingly vivid but still Planes hang like stars in the sky Life pauses as it waits for me to breathe again

    Orgasmic Hue

    "Nutella for two" In my shelf sits a spoon,

    Cold to the touch. Alone the spoon sits, Not more, and not much. It sits all day motionless, Still and unmoved. Dead as those, Who are uncared for and unloved. But it sits all day, patiently, It waits, it is lost. Hoping for one, just one, Warm touch, so soft. A hand so soft...

    An Image

    I can take hold the knife and gash open my soul And there's still things about me you'll never know You'll only know of the things I let slip To shape and to mold the perception you get With bias and limited access for now Your image of me is the one I allow

    SOLITARY Confinement

    Sitting by my study's window sill, Looking at the paper I'm going to fill, I realize the thing I'm writing about, May be hell to some but heaven to me, no doubt. Solitary confinement as I talk of it, Is surely the place I'd like to sit, The best place to discover...

    Dust is the sign of sadness.

      A candle on the table, lighting up the whole room, is the sign of hope. Food on the table is the sign of hard work. Listening to your favourite music is the sign of the feeling you hear through musical notes inside you; all you want to do is dance. Holding your hand in mine is...

    This hope didn't last. You broke me too, I collapsed. I can't trust you dear and I never will. I was nothing but your little thrill. I've said my goodbyes before to you So this time I'm leaving the goodbyes up to you.

    because you were careless or maybe because I was a puzzle you didn't want to solve

    My Valentine!!

    Pushing myself to the corner of my room, Prayed for long before I sleep everyday for filling the void I felt, For the days were not complete and happiness was not full, Felt darkness under the hot sun, For the need for something I felt in my heart, For I had everything yet I felt...

    Can We Return

    Such a sweet silence that I’ve found here. There’s no one here to hurt me anymore. The pain has become nonexistent. The agony is over. This sweet silence has taken over me. You can’t take this away from me. Here I can be me. Here I feel as if I’m free. Your torturing...

    To my only guy? I'd rather see my heart untie before my eyes. I love your smile, My heart beats like I've run a mile. You've been my rock, And I look for love in your eyes like Sherlock. My dear you hold my heart, Is it bad that I might be looking for a restart?
