Breaking point

“One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.” ― Shannon L. Alder A thousand sweet praises I can listen sweetly and keep forgetting them the next day I rise Only one insult from you hurled at me from your sullen mouth breaks and shakes … Continue reading Breaking point

Do you know how it feels?

I have slashed my wrists and cut open my throat and sliced my heart in half enough times to feel how it feels the loneliness when it screams and scratches the inside of my throat and and pain forces its way out from the entrails ripping  apart my body and leading me to shreds and pieces to know … Continue reading Do you know how it feels?

A golden touch

I was waiting waiting eternally for that Midas touch a touch so divine which will turn my pitiful existence into gold and will leave mesmerized and enamored But your pride and your ego and all that insults dripping from your sullen mouth bloated your manly ego turned my ephemeral self to dust.   Photo by Sharon McCutcheon on Unsplash

Whisper and the Roar

can you hold your ground

Have you ever been scarred by the moonlight?

Have you ever been scared to death,

by your big dreams?

Have you ever been scratched

and clawed by the angels?

Ripping your soul apart

as your hope dangles.

Have you ever get burned by the holy water,

left writhing and seething in pain?

Have you ever been torched by love,

left burning and crushing your hopes in vain?

Have you ever been blinded by a rainbow,

and left in the dark to wander?

Have you ever been duped by the trust

of the people you encountered?

Have you ever been succumbed

by the fragrance of the rose?

Does the proximity of  someone

recursively

like a bad movie

stuck on the reels

I want to scrape the

memory of yours

want to mask it with the

empty memories of

my life

the stench of your

sickening presence

has suffocated me

for so long

has left an abyss in my soul

even if I’m blinded

by the goodness

of the light surrounding me

you still can manage

to cast a shadow

and eclipse my heart

with all the pain

I have been

hiding all along

the shivering, trembling

and those seizures of

incessant pain

never seems to slow down

the gut-wrenching

feel of your touch

which scarred my soul

has left a deep impression

which I so want to ignore

Not a single day passes

when I wish your

existence should

be a…
