    He was my only salvation, I thought
    Until I found out he was a nightmare
    My worst nightmare that came alive
    I wished to be freedom
    I wished to be free from these shackles
    That he held me in, cackling at my misery
    He loved to torture me, he loved to see me cry
    He kept watching as I kept falling apart
    Unravelling all my weakness for him to see
    One by one,

    He enjoyed it, he loved to tear me apart,
    He loved to watch me unravel my soul,
    Unravel my vulnerability in front of him
    For him to see only the ugliness inside of me,
    There was no beauty in me he spat,
    I had lost my way out,
    I had lost my faith,
    I had lost my senses to recognise beauty,

    I had started to believe his ugly words against me
    Once again,
    Once again I had fallen into his trap and this time
    He made sure to break my wings and keep me
    Locked up,
    He made sure to abuse me so much that I forget how to fly once again,
    He tried his best to ruin me into dust and pieces of trash
    After all that's what he always wanted

    He wanted to see me weak and unable to fly,
    He wanted me crushed down heavy onto the pebble ground,
    Unable to ever move again and limit my freedom to zero
    That's all he wanted - to see me crushed, utterly defeated

    She caught me

    One day my sneaking around
    Had me caught red handed
    I was sure I hid the clues , but
    Not according to how she reacted

    One day I had been thinking
    Eight years is a long time
    Perfect together no doubt
    I think she would be a great wife

    Two months before our anniversary
    I bought a ring on the fourth
    It would be a surprise
    In two months of course

    A month went by and all's fine
    We are sitting in the kitchen
    She said I'll be right back
    I'll get the mail from the den

    She had a smirk on here face
    I didn't quite understand
    She laughed a little bit
    And sat the papers on the stand

    She looked right at me and cried
    A can't believe you spent
    A thousand dollars last month
    That gives our savings a big dent

    I forgot that we shared that account
    The records were there so clear
    I had to come up with a reason
    Or my plan will fail I feared

    She started flailing and wailing
    I thought I was in for it
    But halfway into her lecture
    She became emotional a bit

    She leaned over to my side
    And whispered nice try
    She said yes yes yes yes
    I would love to be your bride

    My plans had been foiled
    But on the positive side
    Though the cat was out of the bag
    I knew she would be forever mine

    Blur Face

    Sleepless eyes weighing heavy with dreams,
    Pushed as an athlete in the race of life
    A mediocre human with a story filled with extremes
    Munching hope for breakfast and paid in strife!

    A knife edged path and a stony road
    Being a predefined track to walk.
    Envied if he’s fast, ridiculed if he slowed.
    Changes the road but he’s still the object of their mock!

    Chained with expectations and told he’s free,
    Afraid of being constantly accused in the societal trials,
    Caught in the perennial web of bills, loans and a barely there salary!
    He’s exhausted and distraught, the eyes flood, while he paddles on and smiles!

    Can't reach up to his aspirations and can't let go and be content,
    Saddled with responsibilities and bottled up with frustration to always comply,
    Lost in a perpetual money hunt without his own consent,
    The mirror reflects a nameless blur but he’s popularly know as the “Indian Middle-Class Guy”!

    My Vice

    You say they made you impuissant,
    And you hated feeling that way.
    Yet you open up to me,
    And say I'm not your friend.

    I listen to every word you say,
    And give you sound advice.
    And in the end you hit me back,
    And call caring, my vice.

    Sometime I feel like a ragged cloth,
    Used to clean the mess,
    And then I'm thrown to the side,
    Replaced by a brand new dress.

    I gave you many chances
    To show me that you care.
    Yet then again, I forget,
    You've caught me in a snare.

    A part of me wants to escape,
    And prove my worth to me.
    But I'm still stuck in an endless loop,
    The other doesn't want me free.
    And tried, I have,
    To free myself and find a better path.
    Where pain won't be the only thing,
    I receive, along with wrath.

    And though I know,
    You are soo good, and loving towards all.
    I still feel like a thousand souls,
    Will reach you before my call.

    So help me understand the reason
    Why every time we talk, I lie?
    Cause to me, you are my bestest friend,
    Yet you often make me cry.

    One day, I caught myself smiling without any reason, then I realized that I was thinking of you...

    Breech Journey

    From God's breath of life in mum's womb,
    An embryo was formed, a peculiar;
    Head up, feet down, why didn't I turn?
    I was conceived, received in wonder.

    Did the thunder beings favor me?
    Did lightning strikes when I was born?
    I didn't choose nor did I plan this;
    Did God thinks it's best for me?

    Breech birth it was but not Caesarean
    For I did come out of mum's birth canal;
    Was I forced to do it or did I finally decide
    To face the world with strange eyes?

    Childhood years were not so pleasant
    With all its drama, pain, and lessons;
    An outcast in this exile, I bore
    The weight of my life's purpose.

    Darkness was fond of me, I adopted
    The void, the depths, the fire, the storms;
    My soul was battered, mind injured
    From fighting foes and my violent demons.

    Innocence torn like broken angel wings,
    My wounds they turned into wisdom;
    Obstacles bumped along the way, I fell;
    Thank God, my Messiah caught me.

    I came out fine, resilient, and able
    With carefree, happy-go-lucky nature;
    I withstood the serious blows and thrived;
    God upheld me in the power of His might.

    With all sobriety I focused on the race
    By the grace of my Lord and Savior;
    He shall finish in me until my last journey
    And I shall dwell in His Presence forever.

    A bird got caught in a net
    Made of heavy rusted chains
    Under the weight of the iron links
    He quietly bore the excruciating pain

    More than the loss of wing and flight
    Was the torment of being captured forever
    No matter how he wriggled and tried
    And how much the bonds he wanted to sever

    Although he managed to free his claws
    All he could think of was how to exist alone
    The burdens of the entrapment wore him down
    When clearly away he could’ve flown

    Caged he continued to keep himself
    Refusing to let go and move on
    Living in a make believe world where his power
    To get away was completely gone

    Some thought he felt guilty of having previously
    Lived a life of liberation and of relief
    That’s why continued to torture himself
    Out of internal guilt and grief

    He remained repentant and feigned frailty
    His life became a complete waste
    When he could’ve easily set himself free
    And gone on with his life in haste

    Often people wondered why he chose
    To perish rather than choosing life instead
    Why the pull of the past was so strong that it
    Tore his will power to complete shreds

    Perish he did under those irons chains
    A passerby would’ve thought he was trapped
    No one understood that the minute he got caught
    His mind, grit and composure simply snapped

    His broken mind couldn’t comprehend
    The reason he should be alive and well
    The guilt of having been free ate him from inside
    His pride, his will power were quelled

    Just like the bird all of us live entrapped
    In the strong bonds of days gone by
    Instead of choosing to live in those memories
    We should choose to live free and fly

    The past is but a cruel joke that life plays
    Forever caging us in guilt and shame
    Don’t be a confined bird that chooses to die
    Rather than to live and be free again

    Settle down
    I'll spell it out
    It's simple enough

    I came around
    I figured it
    By following my gut

    It's not the same anymore
    Since I walked through the door
    And found you
    On top of my soundboard
    Bent over that sad whore

    I know you've got them bars
    But this is not a game you see
    I'm That Brooklyn Bitch
    That's why they gave this
    Fucking verse to me

    Cause EVERYBODY knows
    It's me they're calling
    For their shows
    How you got your
    Only Grammy
    From my angry words

    Brought my friend
    Inside our bed
    So you can go and
    Fuck your privacy
    Spilling all those secrets
    That you probably hoped
    Would die with me

    Keep lining your cheeks
    With strips of fentanyl
    You can call me a lunatic
    Cause they all know
    You'll never change, Hoe

    Shame, the shackles
    heavy on the ankles
    Guilt, the gasoline
    fuelin' in between

    It's a race you're losing
    for time's forever a foe
    who stops for nothing
    No rewind or pause

    You, alone, must flee
    non baggage-free
    You run until you're numb
    from the person you've become

    It's a one-way adventure
    caught in a motion
    Deep seas and desert land
    Will one ever understand:
    that grief is an anchor
    and tears are an ocean?


  • poemsforlater 84w


    You say you are trapped,
    under your own.
    But tell me, isn't everyone?
    in something or someone,
    Caught somewhere.
    trapped in their own?

    Blue lights

    Blue lights approaching
    Analogue caterwaul
    Instincts call to run
    Head down
    Freeze and pray
    Please not for me
    Guilt in my bag
    Adrenaline primed
    Urban soldiers roll on
    Getaway almost sealed
    Blue lights returning.

    Why Women Cheat?

    A few months ago, I wrote an informative poem about "A Man With An Abundance Mindset," of me understanding male nature on why men cheat? I gave several reasons why men cheat and I understand why men cheat on their girlfriends or wives. I understand why women cheat as well because I cheated on my boyfriend a bunch of times in my past. I came from a family background where everyone in my family was cheaters and liers.
    To those that are new to my page, and want to get a better understanding of this of why men cheat? Please read my other informative poem first, "A Man With An Abundance Mindset" to understand how male nature works first. 
    This topic today is about women. Why do women cheat? Women cheat for several reasons. 
    For the men that are reading this may relate to this or have experienced a situation in your past of being with a mysterious woman. The woman starts to lose interest in her boyfriend or husband. That is why it is always good to listen to your intuition of what you feel that is off in your relationship. It is the same with a woman listening to her intuition to leave that abusive boyfriend or spouse. Follow your intuition.
     4 years ago, I was mysterious and did things behind my boyfriend's back all the time. I was a good cover-up for a while, and I thought I was going to get away with it. He told me that he felt that something was off with me. My behavior started to change. If you are a man and you are curious about your woman. Exam her behavior. Exam the way she acts around you and with other people. You would see inconsistencies in her behavior patterns. She starts to pull away from you. She does not do the same things that she used to do around you when you both first met. If your woman is always consistent in her behavior, that is a sign that she is doing the right thing. She is following your lead in the relationship and that would make you not be curious about her. To the men that are very curious about your woman. Observe her behavior patterns. What I mean by behavior patterns, she may not want to make love to you anymore. She would always make up excuses that she is always busy knowing that she is doing something behind your back. No one can not always be too busy with anything because if you are in a relationship, you would take some time with that person. A man may have a job that he works all week, but he can still put in the time for his woman if he really cares about her. My boyfriend works all week, and he does make time for us. We see each other twice a week, and that is good for me because I always value my space. Another reason, that your woman may not engage in any sexual contact with you anymore. Women are always looking for an upgrade in men. Most women today are never satisfied. The main reason why most women today are always looking for a replacement in men, is because that man is acting like a beta male. Some women value different things. It is all about what is a higher value to her. Women have an interest in different things. Some women value looks. If she goes by looks, she will always find someone who looks better than the man she is with. Some women value status. Some women love a man with high status that is either well known in his community, social media known, celebrity or well known at work, etc... That woman will always look for someone who has more high status than you. Some women value charisma. A woman can value a man by his charismatic charm. It can be the way that man talks to that woman, and that he has swagger. Lastly, some women value money. If you are a beta male provider that always buys and gives your woman money. She is not with you because she loves you, she is only with you for your money. A woman will not leave a beta male. She will always have someone on the side that will be more of a beta provider than you are. When my boyfriend was being a beta male in the past, I would always have someone lined up that is better than him. I would have a side guy on the side that would provide much more than he did. 
    Beta males are weak. Beta males fall in love easily, and deeply. If you are a beta male always giving your woman validations, complimenting her all the time. It is good to compliment your woman but not all the time. Complimenting your woman all the time can be a turn off to that woman. You have to have a balance in dealing with some women. You have to correct them if they are out of line, not following your lead. If you are in your beta male state, basically your woman runs your relationship. Trust me, you do not want a woman to run the relationship because if you let her run it, you will become weak. You will no longer have any control over that woman. That woman will boss you around and tell you what to do, and most men do not like that. If you do not correct your woman, she will run all over you. If you continue to always correct your woman, that is how you will remain alpha. Alpha males protect and do not let a woman run over them. I used to run all over my boyfriend, and now if I get out of line. He does correct me. To correct your woman, you do not put your hands or yell at that woman. If you physically abuse your woman, you are a beta male. That is being feminine, and a real man does not hit a woman. You only correct your woman when she says or does something wrong in the relationship. Always express how you feel towards your woman. It is not good to hold your feelings inside.
    That is why a man should never want to ask that woman for a relationship when you first meet her. That is a woman's job to ask a man for a committed relationship or that she wants to get married. That was a big mistake when my boyfriend wanted me to marry him back then. He would always pressure me to marry him, and I told him I was not ready. I am still not ready for marriage today. It is going to be a very long time when I get married. Whenever I decide to want to get married, that would be my call to make, not his. A man or a woman can not pressure or force you to do something that you do not want to do. It is all about your choice. My boyfriend realized now that he does not want to get married either, because it is a big step and a lot to learn. Marriage is not for everyone and I understand that. If you are a married man or a married woman, God bless you both. 
    To keep a woman not from cheating, you have to become unpredictable. Women do not like a predictable man. A woman loves a challenge. Be spontaneous, and unpredictable. Do different things with her, and make her feel feminine inside. Show her that you care through your actions and not telling her that you care. Actions speaks louder than some words.

    Why Women Cheat?

    A woman who takes more than she needs
    Concerning to watch
    Pretending to care
    She breaks the hearts of all she meets.
    Discontent with everything she collects
    Including life forms
    Just pets
    A moment of comfort

    क्यों मान लिया जाता है
    खुशियो में ही हँसते हैं
    और दुःख में सब रोते हैं
    वो चेहरे भी देखे हैं मैंने
    जो ख़ुशी में आँशु गिराते
    और दुःख में भी मुस्कराते हैं
    ये जिंदगी वैसी ही हे जैसे हम जीते हैं
    फूलों से हँसना और काँटो से लड़ना सीखा हैं
    अक्शर गम लेकर तन्हाई में रहते हो
    फलक सा मन हैं क्यों पिंजरे में रहते हो
    स्वप्न हजार रखते हो, रखा होंसला???
    पँखो के बिना भी होती हें उड़ाने
    खुद से जीत जायें वो भी एक जहां हैं

    Caught in love

    Love has found me,
    My heart is beating,
    I want to scream; OMG! I'm smitten,
    I'm laughing, I'm blushing,
    Love has engulfed me,
    It's a beautiful thing,
    Love is a blessing,
    I am feeling butterflies; I think i'm floating,
    Alas! I have fallen,
    Love has caught me.

    alien thoughts

    feelings caught me
    beamed me up
    like foreign flyers.
    they tell me lies
    but since they picked me
    when I fell, i believe them.

    they range from red blue and
    green, they test me poke fun
    i can't run from these hoaxes.
    i am strapped and probed
    yet doing so many laps
    feeling sweat drip down my lobes.

    they want me to freak and spit
    acid, but most of all to see me
    weak and abandon ship.
    do it, jump out into the black
    just know, you will never come back.

    i crack out of the kidnapping
    i go home though i
    never left.
