I know it takes time

I erased those words I had written for you Watch them dissolve into the whiteness of the paper. I emptied the space you’d rented in my mind Listened to the thunder in my heart beats As your memories began to unwind.   But I know it takes time, to let go, To loosen the grip,…

Hero!

The doctor said ‘she has an hour or two left at the most, you can go see her’. I stood outside the halls of Grande hospital with a lost stare, unable to decide if I had the courage to walk inside the room and watch her take those last breaths. I slowly walked towards the…

How far did we get?

How far did we get? Running and chasing after the voice that didn’t let us stop.. Following the most upbeat sound of our inner calling, Or at least that is what we thought. How far did we get? Walking on the balancing beam of the wall When  all we wanted to do was to fall…..

Words Fail me Tonight

In the quietest corners of my heart

In the quietest corners of my heart I hear your voice say to me aloud “You will always find me there  in the fluttering leaves, and in the swiftest breeze.. In the places we have laughed and in the streets we have passed. In the silly jokes and warm memories we have shared In the…

So one usual evening, I am sitting in front of the mirror, looking at myself, busy applying my mascara and flicking my hair as I comb through it. My dad walks past me, notices me there and then decides to come back into my room. Dad: Did you read the news today? Me: No, haven’t…

The Untold

The silence outside may never speak of the turmoil that outbursts inside. Like those waves that try to run and rush, Only to find itself in no different disguise. Oh the same ocean that would gulp in the waves, Oh the wasted effort that nothing could save. And why do I relate And why do…
