I pull her back,
I push her away,
She surfaces slowly
When I am looking away.
I push her up
Then drag her down
leave her hurting
On the ground.
My hands were trembling as they trembled
The night you kissed me for the first time
My heart was thumping just like it did then.
I counted my steps, one, two, three, four
I counted the steps it took to reach where
You were sanding and when I reached there
I knew you were counting my steps too
I knew for I could hear your heart thump Continue reading “A New Story”
You do a full circle when you see
How little are the objects of your worry

But it’s not all in the air, you feel it in your body
There is a vacuum in your gut, in your chest
Trying to swallow you inside out,
It hurts physically, at the back of your eyes
In your throat, in your chest
And somewhere else
Somewhere inside you
Or maybe outside you
But the pain is so real
Yet you can’t point to a part of your body
And say “There, that’s where it hurts.“ Continue reading “So You Smile”
