Nothing and Everything

beach-cliff-coast-164229

 

You learn to swim,
Then you swim so hard to get across the ocean
And you get far, so far, but not all the way across
And you can’t it seems.
You can’t reach the shore
Unless you give up and drown,
Drowning is the final step to that shore.
Humbling and rewarding in one breath,
Such is life.

I Wander

Sometimes there is no choice but to explore the world
For it helps you explore yourself.
No, I am not wandering to find myself,
I know who I am.
I am an explorer.
I wander like you breathe.

Not A Happy Women’s Day Kinda Woman

c56f06d99127262c3c9b06feef3a0724

 

Don’t wish me a happy women’s day,
I don’t need it or care for it.
I don’t deserve it neither should I have to.
I am not a woman who has given up her dreams
To fit in a man’s dream
Or sacrificed her joy for everyone else’s,
Continue reading “Not A Happy Women’s Day Kinda Woman”

Mysteriously Brooding

So why does it burn,
And sting in the darkness of night?
In my bed, I twist and turn
Reciting my regrets and fears
Like a sadistic poetry.

You Are Who You Want To Be

Greatness simmers in my blood and then goes away. There are moments of clarity when I see things clearly and then everything becomes out of focus, messy. There are flashes of profound awareness and then vague cluelessness returns. An uncontrolable drive, a passion flickers and then dissapears.

I Am The Train

Like life, like a knife
Like air, like water,
Like snow, Like fire, like time,
I am not good neither bad,
I am just what I am.
I could be loved or hated,
Welcomed or fought,
It’s all ok with me,
It’s all the same.

She Is Wonderful

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.

A New Story

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”

To Greatness & Back – A Full Circle

8de4eda3dc9cc61ba5a2bf48782c9613

 

You do a full circle when you see
How little are the objects of your worry
And you look at the bigger things
Life and its meaning and meaninglessness,
Love and all that it should be
And all that it can’t.
