sawing through the threads suspended
overneath the deep departure.
the maw of the void fulfills me,
but still the words of god looms larger.

It feels like something has been ripped apart out of my chest everytime I think about you.
Hiding my pain during the day is easy. I have mastered my act quite well. If you look from the surface, it appears Im still living but truth is Im merely existing. I am numb. I am broken. I am lost.
Our song plays on the radio and suddenly life becomes a blur, my eyes swell with tears and I struggle to breathe.
I lay awake in an empty bed reminiscing about my life. Pain has been rooted in my soul for far too long. What did I ever do so wrong that happiness and love have been always beyond my reach?
Some wounds never heal, the lay dormant in the back of your mind waiting for a trigger to come back to life and haunt you once again.
Emotional and physical abuse started early on. There's no merry go round or sweet lullabies charading my childhoold memories. There's dark rooms, broken glass, fear and pain.
A mom that never loved me. A man that raped me when I was a child. The look of dissapointment in my mother's face. The pressure to become the perfect woman. I always did what I was told but I was never good enough.
When you have experienced more physical damage than you can remember, you become numb. Exhausted. You realize however that the emotional pain hurts even more. It haunts you. The stung of your skin eventually fades, the doubt of your worth remains with you.
I close my eyes and I see your smile like you never left. Even God has been cruel. I found the love of my life and it wasnt meant to stay. Please God, just stop the bleeding.
I have tried to run away from love to no avail. I have tried to run away from the pain but love is in my soul, running through my veins. This love I have for you, this love will die with my last breath.

Proud I am out of my own head
Moving on and not giving in
Cordial but not falling
Thankful you are staying away
As I am only human

Dark black clouds have descended,
All around is a storm
Determined to leave not a person unscathed.
When the eyes view
All they see is misery.
The ears now only listen
To grim affairs.
Thoughts are now tainted
With gloom and sombre.
It indeed is a long tunnel;
Don’t know when the grave clouds
Would become a clear sky.
Don’t know when the storms
Would become pleasant rains.
Till then the wait would go on,
With eager eyes and longing hearts.
All to see that one day,
When the light would gladly take us
In its caress.
(POV-: I wrote this one inspired by the negative COVID situation where I live-India)

What he creates
Is chaos
His love could set fire
To the rain
A love not meant for
Earth or Heaven
The kind of love
That bleeds in hell

He said
If you leave me
You will end up
In your mother's basement
And somehow that was a more terrifying thought
Than being abused

The night knows nothing of the darkness in me
If it's black met my black
It would be scared to leave

The ghosts inside him do not haunt, nor do they disturb
Rather they keep a silent vigil
Bear witness to a weak heart and invisible frailty
Protectors when he tries to escape, never getting very far, never far at all
They still await his arrival and he hopes for worthiness
Hoping he did his best

Look through my eyes,
Don't be scared of what you see.
Feel the torment compressing my head,
And the pain deep inside of me.
Carry the heaviness in my heart.
Keep up with my spinning brain.
Try to contain all my demons,
All while trying to escape the rain.
Control the war inside my head,
Watch their kindness come to a halt.
Run far away from their glowing eyes,
Your panic isn't your fault.
Watch them keep you in a box,
Or a cookie cutter shape.
They can't look past your flaws,
Don't justify their mistake.
We are more than they say,
We are more than they choose.
Don't back into their corner,
We have just as much to lose.
So pull yourself up,
Hold your head as you stand.
There is hope behind the clouds,
Your happiness is a fair demand.
Keep your feet straight,
Use your voice to be heard.
Tell them about your past,
Teach them what you've learned.
Our voices maybe small,
But there are many in our crowd.
One day there will be victory,
And our message will be loud.
The burden may be heavy,
But your truth will set you free.
And one day they will realize,
They are just like you and me.

Three words echo within the four walls that hold me,
growing tired of me whispering love stories.
This heart of mine just won’t stop hoping
That one day you’ll hold me.
Maybe if I say it long enough, the universe will hear
my cries, maybe then we’ll never have to say
I Love You

Your arms are the safest place on earth
But I've always been one for a thrill

Lost my will
Lost my passion
Lost my strength
I’ve mulled this all over at length
And I’m sorry
I don’t mean to be frank
But every gun I put to my head
Shoots a blank
Even all the poison I drank
I cannot be bothered to thank
Because I’m still here
Trapped in my fear
For too many godforsaken years
I don’t know how to
Make it any more clear
That I’m just a corpse puppeteer
Because I died long ago
When he raped my soul
So now I’m a phantom
That’s been taken for ransom
So please save me
I think I might die
Help me keep my head above
The ocean of tears that I’ve cried

but don’t worry
your time
i’ll burn the tie as quickly as i knotted it
she’ll bury
my rhymes
i’ll rise out of love as quickly as i fell into it
I’ll carry
your lies
and braid my hair with the strands of veins that sleep under your wrist
because your merry
your chime
is all i’d ever want
even if it costs a loss of my place in your heart to see it
