43. indifference

indifference has walked in where love once stayed.
she’s put her suitcase down and taken off her shoes.


she walks around, opens the window and looks out to the blue sky.
the clouds have parted ways, letting the orange rays of the sun shine through.
there’s a gentle breeze blowing, and she turns away.


the door is still standing open, just the way she left it.
love keeps walking away.
love isn’t turning back.

19. Wisps of smoke

At first glance, you appear perfect.
Raindrops of innocence mark your presence.

I take a second look at you and I have to shut my eyes
for more than a second;
I cannot bear to see all that is in front of me.

“Silence,” you whisper,
shattering the silence between us.

My eyes grow accustomed to the darkness within,
I keep them shut.
Nothing can compel me to look upon your countenance once more.

“Forevermore,” you say,
dragging my heart into the dust.

At first glance,
you had appeared perfect.
How did it all change?

I hear footsteps behind me.
And the breath of someone tired.
The moist air engulfs my nostrils,
reminding me that I hurt only myself.
I refuse to look at you
but I know you’re still there.

I hear the words fall off these pages,
I see the clouds move in the sky,
I know we’re not meant to be,
But I don’t need to know why.
The whispers surround me quickly,
The dense scents drift by,
The memories don’t stay by me,
My throat swallows my cry.

The unspoken passages of time wind themselves slowly around my sighs,
The remnants of so long ago tell me to not even try.

I hear the mask fall off your face
and shatter while we die,
I know we’re not meant to be
and I don’t need to now why.
Is this the end as I know it?
When did the beginning even start?
I refuse to look at you,
and my eyes must remain shut.

9. Misery walks beside me

From the moment of my birth, I have longed for so much.

The comfort of my mother’s breast,
The safety of my father’s shoulders,
The warmth of another’s touch to soothe my aching soul.

In my life,
I have experienced the cleansing showers of rain
and the deafening powers of pain.

Where misery has fallen in step beside me,
I have paused to look at his face
and collect my thoughts,
surrendering to the gnawing at my body.
I have fallen,
countless times.
My scars bear homage to my battles;
My tears have let me remain human.

But I have learnt to love him
and accept his presence.

Being human is not without pain.

At my moment of death, will my heart long for anything more?

3. Unanswered

Listen to my heart,

I speak to no one.

No one listens and the wounds run too deep.

You thought all I had to do was to believe.

It wasn’t enough, my love.

Disappointment has been friend.

Sorrow, my bedfellow.

My aching heart has surrendered after an eternity.

You never came back.

My soul’s only wish has died unanswered.
