Undone

In her leaving,
I saw the death of a hundred moments
of hopes and love
crumble onto earth.

In her dismay,
I saw the love in my heart
grow wilder, desperate in longing
her touch of solace.

In her smiles,
I saw the forgotten heartaches
we traded through fragrant air
in the death of the night.

In the twinkle of her eyes,
I saw a new love settle down
on veneers of dust-clad memories
of holding hands and wiping tears.

In a jiffy,
I saw her
love me and leave me
And all at once, came undone

Death Comes Closer

When the passion in my veins
becomes the poison in my blood
and death comes closer by a step
I will not shrivel in sudden fear
or dissolve into a mist of a pitiable plight
For even when I die
My words will illuminate lives with it's
perennial light.

A Nobody

The way your eyes smirk at my existence
and heavy breaths sublime under hallucinating lights
The rifts of your wet lips, abhorrent and unawaiting
On mine sometimes, sometimes gone
A lover's sigh, and poet's respite,

You.

The splash of aquamarine to my gloomy canvases.


Freckle

I was a virgin canvas
your lips couldn't stain

I had waterfalls inside my chest
your eyes couldn't contain

I ached in places
your hands couldn't touch

I spoke of autumns
words couldn't adorn much

So what you loved that beauty spot
on the edge of my waist,
Alongside thrived a freckle
you had already abandoned in haste.
