truth hurts


why is it so hard
to squeeze in a word
from time to time

proficiency nullified
when faced with reality
of someone to pine

over, just like that
heartbroken and alone
and fears redefine

what if my lips are shut
suffering alone forever
will you then be mine




it’s been too long to count
the days of my love for you
immovable through stormy life
yet unrequited throughout

my use to you was to be used
for your whims were my commands
only to be discarded after
like stale news of old yester

at least you could’ve hated me
i would’ve cherished the vehemence
all i could see was indifference
unworthy to elicit an emotion

waiting for you


withdrawn from the world
alone for a long quest
inhibited and furled
thriving on my own zest
inundated as solitude hurled
never felt such unrest
geared for a life whirled
fear thumping neath chest
optimistic yet curled
rational, yet with unrest
yearning for love swirled
one day it will attest
until then, my world…



betrayed by my own kith
over faces unknown
and years of love and trust
puff… gone

my existence to you a ghost
or a plane parallel
treatment to me so silent
shivered universe all

the darkness in you i see
i am not a match
walking around you on eggshells
can’t let those chicken hatch


the rampant betrayal of self
is it really worth it
or do you think i’ll take you back
lack of esteem

you should’ve just conveyed
what was in your heart
instead you chose to string mine
till it broke in millions

now i rage not for the hurt
but for the future we could’ve had
if it weren’t for your delusions
thinking it was just a game
