Woes of Adolescence

One moment I’m smiling,

The next I run and hide.

For a while now,

It’s been a roller coaster ride.

Trust comes easily,

And so does affection.

Followed by betrayal,

And a wounded heart.

I feel the weight of the world,

As it comes crashing down.

On my feeble shoulders,

Made heavy by bitter words.

Love and Pain 

You can break my heart,

Time and again.

Let it shatter to pieces,

And shower like the pouring rain.

Take the half,

That belonged to you then,

Scribe on it a scarlet letter-

My love for you that died unspoken.

Whether it’s love or pain,

They’re both a throb to the heart.

Whether you knew or not,

It still would have broken me apart.

A Poet’s Tale

A poet’s soul,

Is neither kind nor forgiving.

We have been hardened by life,

And moulded by its strife.

These are things we are not born with, but acquire:

Eyes that reek of judgement,

Tongue bitter from the taste of truth,

And an imagination that defies gravity.

These are things we do not dread, but desire:

Nights devoid of sleep,

Passion that burns a hole through your heart,

And a mind that obeys no one.

The Feude

It comes from deep within,

This rage you trigger.

The way you get under my skin.

Like nothing else is bigger.

Every time I pull, you push

I am shunned for living as I wish

The more I walk away,

The more horrible things you say.

I am done letting you throw stones at my castle.

There is only one survivor in a battle.

It could be you or me,

The end is all I’d like to see.

Shopaholic

The thin line between want and need,

Wavers at the brink of greed.

Horde until you’re no longer empty.

Buy enough to keep yourself busy.

Little bit of that,

Some more of this.

Anything you set your sights on,

You wouldn’t dare miss.

Those nature lovers never understood your plot.

Who said happiness cannot be bought?

The Dream

Every night, we meet in a recurring dream.

Making new promises, to redeem.

Your eyes locked on mine,

Our fingers entwine;

Two hearts beat as one,

All the masks are undone. 

I couldn’t walk, but with you I fly. 

Amongst the stars setting fire to the sky.

Writing

Not knowing what to say,

Not knowing what to write.

It has never been the issue.

Having too much to pour out,

That endless train of musing,

It goes on a journey

From too much truth to heartache.

Putting pen to paper is like,

A vacuum to the heart.

In the end there’s a dirty bag of poetry,

And a soul drained of all emotions.

Gravity

I am pushed and pulled

Left to suffocate in silence,

A voiceless fool.

I am taut and teased

Stripped of my pride,

A spineless tool.

Made to feel so silly,

By a heartless bully.

You bring me down like gravity.
