    Disappear...

    I asked the sky to swallow me inside
    But he refused to do so
    So I asked the river to help me flow along
    She said I weighed too much
    And i better walk away lest I'd drown
    Then l I asked the wind to carry me with her
    She paused fr a while
    And gave me a gruesome look
    "How can I carry you if you already carry so much guilt on your chest?"
    Disheartened and grieved ,
    I requested the earth to bury me inside her
    She too denied , for I would hv to turn to dust to be one with her
    and that
    she can't take me alive.
    Then I pleaded the fire to burn me to ashes
    For I have none to grant me salvation
    Those flames of purity tried to grab me
    But they couldnt.
    Disappointed and exhausted
    I asked them all together
    To help me liberate through my misery
    They wondered why would I ask so
    For I was young
    And brave
    But Then asked me to wait,
    Conspiring against my wishes
    Soon after
    The sky gave me a pair of wings to fly
    To wander alone up and high ,to find my destiny
    The water showered me with her power
    The beauty Of lightness and consistency
    To be persistent and ever flowing in this journey of mine
    The wind asked me to flow along
    but With no strings attached
    Worthy of my every deed,
    And Soar High Always
    as light as a feather
    The earth then nurtured me
    with her buds of faith
    and fruits of patience and temperance
    The fire advised me
    Not to chase her but the darkness in me
    To tame my own demons
    and play with my own fire,
    Fiercely and delicately
    For it's the only thing
    that will keep me alive
    and set me free.

    Insomnia ©anthony_

    I know not what keeps me up at night
    there is no feeling at times only the silence
    even the voice in my head sometimes dissappears in the background of nothing

    As I lay in darkness and silence I can't help but play through all the events in my life, it's then when I realize misery loves company

    MISERY COMPANY

    Misery loves company
    But I don’t do such company.
    I am not saying I don’t feel the pain
    It’s just that the life of God in me would not make me live in such a company.

    I could pass through it but for a fleeting second
    But you won’t find my office in the company.
    I go through things that tempt me to own an office there
    However, The Zoe life of God in me cannot dwell in such a company.

    I am no better than those with large offices there
    Believe me I have my own battles and fight my demons
    I have just chosen to not to dwell on the negativity.
    I have chosen to let The Peace of God take over.
    I have chosen HIS joy over the unhappiness
    HIS promises over the failures
    And HIS assurance over the delays.

    Misery loves company
    But I can’t dwell in such a company.
    I would rather help you cancel your lease at the company.
    Help you find Peace and Joy that only God can give
    Than show solidarity and dwell with you in that bitter company.
    Instead of being miserable together, let’s enjoy God together.

    Misery loves company
    But why not leave such a dark lonely company.

    May

    Summer arrived this year
    With a bang and brought with it the lockdown
    A month that usually cheers me up
    Made my smile turn into a frown
    While sweet lichees and ripe mangoes
    Flooded the markets downtown
    In my books and poesies I was lost
    In them my sorrows I drowned

    Unable to go out and like all the others
    I was stuck inside the confines of my house
    From a roaring lion roaming the streets
    Reduced to being a petty door mouse
    Moping around all day I spent the month
    Unwilling to do anything but grouse
    Folk around me lost dear ones and
    Some even lost their spouse

    One would think that May would lift my spirits
    As it had done for so many years
    Instead I saw death from not so far away
    And came to face to face with my fears
    How could I help, do something of value
    Why life couldn’t simply shift gears ?
    Why is life so fickle and indefinite I wondered
    Sometimes in words, sometimes in tears

    Unable to keep up with the rapid loss
    I went from feeling bad to being depressed
    All that I had feared for years was losing loved ones
    And this brought up fears I had repressed
    I wish Covid was a person I could kill
    With my bare hands it I would’ve suppressed
    And saved so many from heartbreak
    And the burden of being alone and hence stressed

    The month of uncertainty came and went
    I hardly noticed the flowers that grew
    Losing close friends and relatives to disease
    Left me feeling rather sore and blue
    There was no work to be done to distract oneself
    The world felt topsy turvy and askew
    I was glad to see summer go for the first time ever
    So that we could face rainy June anew

    I still remember, her calling that day and asking to bring her out of boredom, and to this day I still use the same excuse to get myself out of misery...

    The darkness came with the wind
    As it whistled past, past us,
    Past the mountains, past the fluttering flags, Past the bushes of fern.
    We have come too far
    The trail ahead is too narrow for two.
    The dusk was upon us_
    And it felt like your smile melt_
    In the crimson rays of the setting sun.
    The winter has reached us.
    A cold mist has settled in these heights_
    Of insecurities, of latent confessions,
    But I feel like it has always been there, Hiding, waiting,
    Otherwise invisible, but, omnipresent,
    Arrested in the illuminated obscurities_
    Of the isolated streetlights.
    Spectres of memories, of fractures,
    Of a bygone winter haunts the deserted roads,
    Their shapes occassionally caught,
    In the gaseous ochre of burning helium.
    The town has wrapped the blanket over its head,
    The minarets and the bell towers are engulfed in darkness,
    Even the stray dogs have deserted the market tonight,
    The lake breathes fumes in its icy silence,
    As I walk alone through these familiar alleys
    In this obfuscated night of haunted memories.
    Tonight_
    The past appears close, too tangible,
    Recreateable.
    Am I being allured to illusions?
    The dead calls me
    Through the memories of yesterday.
    And I find the pull irresistible.
    I feel alive in death,
    As I walk alone through these familiar alleys
    In this obfuscated night of haunted memories.

    Pain

    Words can never be enough to define the misery
    My heart aches and feel
    Its all about learning to deal
    with the harshness and cruelty.

    गरीबी

    गाड़ियों के शीशे का ही तो फासला है,
    कोई उस तरफ हाथ फैलाता है,
    तो कोई इस तरफ हाथ दिखाता है।
    कोई भूखे पेट सो जाता है,
    तो किसी को खाना पसंद नहीं आता है।
    कोई जाता है स्कूल, पढ़ने और बढ़ने,
    तो कोई नंगे पांव सड़कों पे जूजता है धूप से,
    तुम पीते हो गाड़ियों में बैठ के शरबत,
    वो प्यास बुझाता है अपनी ही थूक से।
    पर कसूर ना उसका है ना ही तुम्हारा,
    बस किस्मत का ही तो खेल है सारा।
    गलत....
    किस्मत का नहीं है खेल ये,
    इंसानों ने बनाई है रेल ये।
    बांटा गया है यूं डिब्बों में सबको
    और अब मिलने का नहीं है कोई गेटवे।
    भेड़िए बने हैं सब जिसकी भूख ही नई मिटती,
    जितनी भी दौलत हो, कम ही है दिखती।
    किस बात का गुरूर करूं मिट्टी पर अपनी,
    यहां रोटी के लिए बेटियां भी हैं बिकती।

    SORROW'S SUM

    --------------------------------------------

    There was a boy,
    So jolly and pure.
    His words so soothing,
    It was a pleasing cure.
    Everyone loved him,
    His charm was such a lure.
    But little did he know,
    Bad days would come for sure

    He lost his mother,
    He lost his smile.
    He went to a trauma,
    Couldn't recover for a while.
    His tears were flowing,
    Like the wide river Nile.
    Then he came to know,
    His life was such a vile.

    Hated by his family,
    He endured till the end.
    Life sure was cruel,
    Happiness has truly bend.
    He wished to share this,
    To those who understand.
    He really needed someone,
    To give him a helping hand.

    He sure is living,
    But a life without any aim.
    Each day he would hear,
    "To our family, you're such a shame".
    Every night he would question,
    "This cruel world, why have I came?"
    He had no choice,
    But to accept all the blame

    Life can be good,
    But the worst is yet to come.
    It can make you helpless,
    It can make you numb,
    At times you feel worthless,
    At times you feel dumb,
    Yes this boy is me,
    This is my sorrow's sum.

    I never made any poem about you, because your presence was too beautiful to put into words, and your goodbye are too painful to write about.

    Misery's Trap

    When the music dies
    hollowness begins to fill the eyes,
    awaits for miracles or a surprise
    to give contained rhythms a reprise.

    The day her ship sank
    difficult it was to find a plank,
    as if fate tried to pull a prank
    places for hope are all now blank.

    When the leaves turn brown
    luck chose to frown,
    letting dreams of tomorrow drown
    to enter the silent lifeless’ town.

    I wrote a fairytale
    to grant myself a brief bail,
    pushing away the sorrow's scale
    stealing chances with a cheap inhale.

    As I hold onto the crumbling thoughts,
    I step into the ever gloomy shadows.

    As if a reminder,
    As if an obligation,
    Misery awaits!!

    By twilight,

    when dawn is far enough and the darkness calls and cupid takes charge of your life...

    for one split second; and you dare to dream of a different existence. A life that is the opposite of the one you've known.

    Then you remember the world ain't give a fuck about you when it passed these burdens for you to hold.

    So you lay awake every twilight and imagine the happiness you'll never have.

    Well isn't that a sight to behold.

    Sometimes I sit by myself and think that humans are weird either they want to win the race or else run the race. No one wants to walk allied segregate unity.
