    Her

    As I watched her walk across the sandy beach

    It struck me that I had always been a step behind

    And as she walked further away with every step,

    I could never catch up, in fact I never truly tried...


    To not seem desperate, I walked nonchalantly

    On and on until she was but a dot on the horizon.

    Distracted by the setting sun, I lost sight of her -

    The girl who made me chase intangible desires...


    As I finally halt, salty oblivion washes my feet

    My smouldering eyes finally face a new dawn...

    The sky drips on to the canvas of my mind and paints it blue...

    Blue

    Rainy memories form an ensemble of words

    Petrichor, umbrellas, lofi and coffee

    Words echoing long lost memories

    Now when the sky turns a darker shade of grey

    And the grey clouds take over the sky

    The blue sky takes refuge on my mind

    And I feel blue as the blue sky seeps into me

    The coffee I brew fails to lift the heaviness I feel

    And the first raindrops fall like shards on my skin

    A place where I can go back to when I need a rewind button.
    A checkpoint to hold my childhood memories safe, under lock and key.
    A place to return to when my roots are all but lost.
    How long till I lose this last connection to my past?

    I wandered around my grandmother's house, reminiscing
    The walls that were the first hurdles I ever conquered,
    The resplendent garden where my childhood bloomed,
    The worn-out furniture I had once vanquished,
    The kitchen where I tasted nothing but delicacies,
    The voice that lulled me into the deepest of slumbers.
    I look at my brother, his eyes too seem lost in the past
    Together we look back, at this collection of childhoods,
    This resilient foothold of our shared memories,
    How long can it withstand the ravages of time?

    You could say you were caught up in other things to pay attention to us. And I would understand... But after a while it just sounds like an excuse. Prioritising what really matters is key.

    Everything you ever said, nothing more than lies
    Should've known when you said you don't make promises
    Should've known when you never carried your goals to fruition
    Should've known when you gave me hope, just to dash it to the ground
    Should've known when you were too weak to hold your own
    Should've known when you left me working alone on all the mundane stuff
    Should've known when you ran away from reality
    But today I stand alone amongst these things I should've known
    And you say you tried but just couldn't get your mind to focus
    Pick up your pieces on your own, 'cos tomorrow I won't be there to do it for you

    Loving a Poet
    I fell in love with a poet
    His poetry reflected our love
    A hundred poems all about us
    I was his light and sweetness
    But then he broke my heart
    And inked me as the heartbreaker
    Loving a poet is a dangerous thing
    He'll inscribe his love in rhymes and verses
    But your love will bleed without proof
    And you'll be left doubting yourself

    *The Colour of Love*
    If our love had a colour, it would be yellow
    Like the sun that never seemed to set, with you
    Our world resembled sunflower fields in full bloom
    Your stolen glances turned my winters into summers
    We were a bright and sweet yellow, till...
    Till it seemed to me like yellow caution signs
    Till it resembled yellow flags signalling disease aboard
    Till our love turned sour like lemons...

    When your scent will no longer cling to me
    When I no longer reach for you in my sleep
    When my utterances are free of your slang
    When the last vestiges of our love slip away
    As imperceptibly as they had once crept into me
    That's when I'll know I've moved on

    We think of a man as a man
    Before we think of him as a father
    Or a brother, or a husband
    But we think of a woman as a mother,
    A sister, a wife or even an arm candy.

    I am an only child, I am no one's sister,
    I am unwed, I am nobody's wife,
    I don't plan on being a mother,
    Nor am I pretty enough to be an arm candy
    Does that make me less of a woman?
    Who am I if not a woman?

    ...
    If this is how our world ends
    I wish I could turn back time
    I'll run back to your outstretched arms
    I'll put myself under the spell of those intense eyes
    I'll kiss you long and hard till I feel the world reeling
    I'll pull out all the stops - the what ifs and the anxiety
    And I'll fall like I've never fallen before

    When I was young my dreams were heavy
    But my little hands held them so lightly
    But now I am an adult and my dreams are fragile
    They shatter at my slightest touch
    All I'm left with are fragments of dreams past
