Melts my flesh

I want to save you
from your darkness.
I will set myself on fire
to light your way.
Even if it melts my flesh and cracks my bones
I will be okay by keeping you warm.

Flower blooms

If you ever question me,
“what kind of flower blooms inside your chest?”

I can say that I’m made up of seeds that never sprouted.
I can say that I’m a drought that never stops leeching.
I can say that I’m the rainstorms that drown my own saplings.
I can say that I’m growing nothing beautiful things here.
Because I only destroy it.

Bags of good things

“We all have a bag. We all pack differently. Some of us are travelling light. Some of us are secret hoarders who’ve never parted with a memory in our lives. I think we all are called to figure out how to carry our bag to the best of our ability, how to unpack it, how to face the mess. I think part of growing up is learning how to sit down the floor with all your things and figuring out what to take with you and what to leave behind.”

Nights Touch

At night your touch talks to me.
It plays with my heart and draws tenderly on my back.
It appreciates my love handles and
tells me that I am perfect.
It cares my wounds and talks to my soul.

It is way beyond petty things, missed chances and ugly pasts.
It gives me everything I would ever want.
It talks to me about unsaid words and long lost memories.
It loves every bit of me making me breathless
And love,
It’s because of your touch I long for,
that makes me fall for you, all over everytime.

Ohhh darkness!
You wrap me up making clueless about myself
You seep into me, making me feel breathless
You have the audacity to ruin me and break me
You won’t stay long
You’ll be gone
I’ll embrace myself and start appreciating you.
For making me better person,
Even you made me breathless .
Those beautiful colours which you left,
They will help me to breath freely.
By accepting the reality and understanding different layers of darkness I had within myself
I’m going to win over you.
Some dark and painful nights end as soon as the light conquers the world.

If this is not happiness than what is?

If this is not happiness
Than what is?
When we begin to enjoy solitude,
Human interaction becomes painful.
Happiness remains in reading books And,
Spending time alone with melancholic coffee.
Trees infront of me are humming the song,
There’s sudden outbursts of clouds,
The wild peaking of the thunders,
Deep breaths of the universe,
Blessing us with its gift.
I bow my head down to mother earth
And pray for the peace.

[There’s nothing more beautiful than rainfall.]
