Streetlights

I’m dragging my fatigued body up the street

a rotten heart, motionless face, I am in a maze I cannot seem to find a way out;

all I have are those streetlights-

that stand so tall and unreachable, but I found the dim lights comforting

as if the light waves can reach my face, I looked up and thought to myself:

Can you guide me home?


Connected

That rainy night we were on the phone

Talking for hours about ourselves-

we just went on and on, and we never seemed to get tired of it.

Then we went to the balcony for a smoke break

we are miles apart; but connected

we lit our cigarette at the same time

and in that very moment when I look upon the stars

I saw you in the flickering light.


Nonchalant

When midnight talks turned into silence

When hugging and giggling turned into hiding in our own beds

When dinner dates became responsibilities

When spending a day with you turned into a burden

When you acted so nonchalant after a fight

When everything turned silent- that’s when you know.


Paranoias

It comes at night, knocking on my door

First it started with slow knocks

Then, it started to knock repeatedly;

Knock, knock, knock, knock

The knocking sounds invaded my mind

The sounds that thrust through my brain

So repetitive and repulsive

 

I walked out of my bed to that door

Trying to figure out who’s knocking-

And all I found out

Is my shadow all along.


Sidenote: It’s been a while since I have updated this blog, but I think it’s about time for me to update and write again, writing is my passion and will always be.
