My presence couldn't make you fall in love with me.

I hope my memories don't either.

Yes. I have felt it too.

The feeling of getting crushed under a stone,
When my mother denied me that ice cream, claiming
It's cancer to my throats that winter.

The devoid of the poison named oxygen,
When they didn't let me pursue arts as my degree, noting
Statistics of slimmer paychecks for artists.

The feeling of being a nomad,
When I kept contemplating my career plan, giving
Examples of my already successful peers.

The feeling of being the one who submits willingly,
When my boyfriend simply notified me of plans, reflecting
On historical norms and traditions.

The feeling of being unarmed,
When those friendly hands turned filthy. Pacifying,
Calling it a secretive, loving gesture.

I bow to your love for me.
I respect your influence on me.
I long for your kindness.
And I can walk miles for that presence.

Do I worship you?

Well, only my God would know!

and
"You need to tell her how much you love her",

In the crowd, I saw a familiar face.
A face that had strange, blue and distant eyes. Eyes that were glowing in it's sadness and depth. Eyes that at times softened when his lips smiled.
Which reminds me of his smile. I haven't seen a more beautiful faked arc on anyone else's face ever before. Everytime he smiled, I felt his heart cringe. Yet, it didn't take away the beauty in his smile. The mystery of why his smile never reached his eyes intrigued me.
I felt him frown on people patting him at his jokes. Jokes that came spontaneously to him and he cracked them just to give another try at being social. But his face clearly read that he wanted to snap his way out of this place. Yet he kept trying...

They aren't strangers.
They just aren't discovered.

To not let new seeds grow.
Seeds of what you broke in me.

Poetry bound me together.
Haiku healed me.
I made each of those stories my midnight pillows.
While each of those rants awakened me.

Nothing ever had more power on me than words.
Hence, I crave real conversations.

She knocks at my door at odd hours for extremely important reasons like she is bored or she is unable to sleep or maybe because she doesn't like the curtains of her room anymore. Yeah. Sounds cute? Well, let me break it to you. It's not cute. It's annoying....."

While billing at Victoria Secret, the guy took his wallet out to pay for his girlfriend's purchase.

The salesman gave a smirk.
To this the man said,

Each December seems like a paradox.
It is the end of an year. But another one waiting anew.
You tanned yourself and danced in the rain.
Bid adieu to those lovely moments.
As you have new experiences to gain.

Autumn did make the leaves fall.
But strong heart!
You fought, moved on and even crawled.

You might have made mistakes.
Yet, learnings shouldn't make your brain curse.                         Retrospect. Remember. This December, relive your worth.

Yes, December came in a sigh.
Embrace 2018 which is fresh and nigh.
Yes, new challenges await.
This year, let's face it with chin held high.

This is to those self acclaimed aficionados and critiques living in denial.
Let me break this to you.

Yes. The world is cruel.
It has been long that you have dealt with it.

Also...

You are part of this world.
Its high time you introspect and see what you can do about the demon inside of you.

She rushed to his place at 2 A.M.

"All okay?", he asked.
"I miss home.", she said with puppy eyes.

And that tight hug of her best friend

You see that?

You're the only person
Who is able to read her.

And that is because
She wants you to be the only one.

People you claimed
As your 'forever',
Are already
In your past.

Moral- You are stronger than you think you are. Because you never knew...but you always had the ability of moving on.

Blushing like a girl

Even if it means
Tearing off a piece of my soul,
Loosing out on my magic,
End to my unreasonable laughter
And
Cutting the only chord left with felicity.

I'll still let you go.
For my inner peace
And self love.

pretty
boring and nonsensical
if they would have
