I am drawn to the sea
and its salty spray,
my thoughts preserved,
far beyond the shore.
I am lost,
I am found,
with every wave,
the tide,
its pull,
I break,
I bleed,
from the sea I was born,
and to the sea,
I will return,
when I leave.

I long for you.
If you are the fire,
I am a forest of hope,
eagerly awaiting your flame.
Rage like the wind,
let it carry you to me,
so that we may burn together.

~There is something about old books,
more than stories they hold memories,
memories of those fingers which gently turned every page making it a
soulful place.

Those pale yellow pages carry
the secrets of their grapples,
grapple in making every line
read and felt by heart.

The biblichor itself craves for the
fragrance of all those sites it has been,
and the taste it felt by those filled mugs.

The dusty torn cover somehow
knows the journey,
journey from big book shelves to those
catastrophic desks, and then maybe
again to plesurable surroundings,
                Perhaps, they know the revolving, of endings being the
new beginnings.

#582 - ‘Lost’
 
I walk, without fear, towards the
promise of you. Following every
flower, in bloom, that still carries
your scent.
You always exist in all the places I
cannot reach; they hold on to your
beauty in ways I have only dreamt of
because all that I own are dreams.
Dreams of you.
Dreams of us.
I often find myself overwhelmed by
dreams, hoping one day I will wake,
and you’ll no longer be a dream to me.

Be you.
You have got nothing to prove to the world,
the fires that burn will always burn,
respect is not given,
it is taught,
those that take the time to listen,
will earn something that cannot be bought.

But the desert never changes. Thats the way it will be with our love for each other.

The things we fear,
keep us hidden.
It is easy to become lost
when the shadows offer shelter
from the storm,
but you must never forget
that you are a force of nature too
and you deserve to be seen.

You know this is just my personal opinion, but I think I'm all honesty that men are better in books, in all seriousness though, their kinder, nicer, they are there for you when you need them.

I should not hurt
when I am without you
and yet,
in your absence,
I find myself nursing every bruise.

Do not be fooled into believing
that you belong to the shadows,
just because you are having
negative thoughts.
It is important you understand
that what you are feeling
is temporary.
Clouds often cover the sun,
but they pass,
what you are feeling
will pass too.

The more I deal with my heart break the more I understand her desire to rip the bandaid off and feel the tinge.
As I go through your folder in my gallary, and walk through our memories, I understand the need of feeling that pain.
I understand the worth of it.
I dig deeper into our chats to see old versions of us, just like her finger nail digging in her wounds. And  as she sanitizes her hand, I wipe my tears off and try to feel a little better, I cover it with empty words, she puts a bandaid on it.
I get it, I get how she is scared that something so small, so many within her, are conspiring to kill her,
I am scared something inside me , about me killed everything between us.
And as she garg...

The fires we start,
live longer than the seeds we sow
in an attempt to replace
what we have already lost.

I am drawn to the sky.
As I am stood alone,
I often daydream about being as free
as the clouds that pass
and letting go of the love
I have for you that I know
you’ll never embrace.

I have devoured endless seas,
in search of you,
and fought persistent tides,
that refused to let go.
As I now stand,
abandoned,
at the water’s edge,
counting victories,
keeping score,
I do so,
unaware,
that the sea is you.

     My book
     Is filling up
     With pages about you
     But
     Each blank page
     Says so much more
     Than those
     That are written.

If the world were a book,
I'd never run out of stories,
The fantasies,
The imagination,
And a world where
There are a lot less worries.

If the world were a book
I'd flip through page after page,
Live them,
Feel them,
Like the perfect ensemble
On the stage.

I never thought it possible to have every single colour exist at the same time,
until I saw you. I now live for sun-filled days that come with the promise of rain,
just so I can see you shine. I have traced your curves, your endless lines.
They stay with me, long after you fade.
It’s no wonder that love is hard to fathom
– my soul remains tortured and full of hope at the same time.
I exist in a constant state of confusion.
My heart breaks like the dawn of a new day, one full of promise, one full of you
but as every new day begins, I am always envious of the sky
– it gets to hold you in ways that I cannot.
I always end up becoming every darkened cloud that passes, ...
