That disappointment in your eyes,
I’m all too familiar with it.
I see the same – in the mirror,
the only difference being
that in your piercing stare
I see one more thing –
the increasing will to lose me.

Waking up hastily
to flashing news
of humans failing
to save humanity;
watching from home
men in arms
wanting to protect
from impending revenge;
putting on clothes,
her favorite dress
and unlike her,
some sharp makeup,
thinking to herself
if today’s it,
atleast,
she’d die pretty.

Funny, you’d think I’d struggle
after ending years of togetherness
we liked to call love,
but darling, you failed to realize
that in the midst of games
of blames and fights,
I learned to live, like you didn’t exist.

After long, I thought about the old love. It’s already a distant memory but the learnings are intact, as new as ever 🙂

After all,
in the end,
we’re all just stories,
to be read by many,
understood by some
and hopefully saved
in heart, by one. ❤️

Moving inches closer to myself
wrapped in your arms and legs,
thinking about the frail threads
that hold us together for now
and slowly, as these threads begin
to loosen, move further away
till they can no longer hold it together,
I stay, as a whole, in myself
but now without you, your arms and legs.

Waiting by the hour,
phone in hand,
hope in heart,
I lose more of me
to lesser and lesser of you.
No amount of waves
can calm the fire
that stirs inside me
waiting
to have more of you
in equal parts of me.

Nothing wrong

My child,
there is nothing wrong with you,
you are not a manufacturing defect.
It could be an unresolved issue
or a calling,
or a disease,
difficult to diagnose
maybe unknown yet to humanity.
Whatever it is,
it’s a reason,
and it is there,
but it doesn’t define you.
You’re not it.
You’re the one with it,
and you will embrace it
and learn to be with it.
But my child,
before all of that,
take my hand and say –
“There is nothing wrong with me”
because there isn’t
and there never will be.
