Physical health issues have taken a toll on me, most of the times I’m unable to breathe. I feel as if there is something heavy in my chest that’s blocking my airways. Anxiety and depression have also kicked in because my mental health couldn’t stand the desperation caused by my physical health. I can’t breathe,…

Anxious

Man always crushes my hopes but I’ve loopholes. The most important one is me being a human being. Such a petty fragile human! This is self-pity. This is me writing while I face a writer’s block. I’ve gone deep into this nasty abyss called life and this chasm does not let me write. It’s stripping…

Lost

In my own enigma of dreams I got tied to another human being, The beginning of a chain reaction Puts an end to all my actions Peace falls piece by piece Being pulled into A negative field, Poetry used to be my elixir Have lost sense of my own future! Words drifted apart from me,…

Sailed here by life Perks or penalties of being a wife, Fate restructured by no other but me Still I call it destiny, Confusing mental state I took life’s bait, My pen’s constantly drowning Can’t get hold of my surrounding, Time being the child of sand Slips from my grip while I stand, Another day…

Words

I avoid situations because I’m a coward. “Everything’s in control, my heart is throbbing.” ” Fights, boy why am I still alive?” I don’t know maybe it’s my mind, maybe we all are just our minds. I know I’ve started to sound absurd by now but I think I’m  a coward because I’ve got nothing…

Eternal

You were never my destination Just a diversion on the way, Neither had you given it a second thought Nor had I the courage to say, To say goodbye a long time ago But clinging to you was my only hope, I see you going far far away Ah shouldn’t have taken my breath away,…
