Haze

His eyes were liquid honey Blazing and brimming awake; ‘Twas twilight reflected on his gaze. She stares away, in a daze Instincts clouded and lips locked away, Memories clouded and muddled. This familiar haze…. But, there it stays, The raging storm From a time before dawn. Yet again, the familiar emotions Grips the saint; so silence, Please, let me tame the devil. Let the ugliness … Continue reading Haze

Discovery

Fill my heart with this feeling That encaptures the broken pieces. I saw the clash of contraries, A melding not mixing Of the light and dark; A powerful symphony. Hollow and content, Wandering till twilight Hoping the answers will suffice. Beautiful, as it wrecks the cynic; What am I to make of existence? Poet’s Note: Have you ever been stuck in crossroads due to simple … Continue reading Discovery

Fable

I see you smiling, Looking up, It’s like your mind is wandering With mine; at the very moment Unleash the fairyland On which we travel, Embracing monsters And facing the dreams. I’m next to you, … Continue reading Fable

Yet, she is unbreakable, No, let … Continue reading Long poem: Unbridled Spirit

Within

Freestyle: Within Gasping, Every second with the ever present Choices and confusion. Pundits of perfection, Fumbling under flailing pretense; Gasping – Without any direction, Surrender, To the shackles and be free. But. The haste within Sometimes diminishes; Yet, a single instance, When the soul wanders past The chains of the past. The unknown awaits Gasping, Every second with the ever present Choices and confusion, Rising … Continue reading Within

Soulmate

This poem was inspired by the song なんでもないや by Radwimps from the movie Your name (君の名は). Tears dripping from your eyes, Yearning for each lasting moment To grow A little longer, I wish we were wound together; Hearts, ever so closer- A little piece of soul Lost. We wander. I’ve been searching for you Forever. We stand here, In opposite directions, Tell me its true, … Continue reading Soulmate
