Oxygen

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,…

Sunset

I am an absurd introvert. People close to me are the ones I value and the ones who make me feel like an extrovert when I’m around them. But the society in which I live in continues to pull me stronger into its nauseous gravitational field. People scare me nonetheless; I’m forced to be fake…

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…

Wake-up Call

My much-loved surroundings They strip me away from my dear ones Make me go against my will, This the basis I came into being? Ah this isn’t any reason at all! I must find it Till I go back into slumber They keep me pushing away from it These forces are powerful My willpower crumbles…

Black Hole

I’ve lost my dreams Now, Nightmares make me scream The path ahead is blurry You say not to worry I keep on walking nevertheless And, vagueness grows with every step Treading on a forbidden path That’s leading me down into the dark abyss, Sweet Lord, When would I arise? © Soiba

Rotten

Dissuaded by my very own The one whom I called my home,   I struggle with anxiety and panic attacks Ah you’d never cut me a slack,   These are your offerings to me Dear lord, When would you set me free?   Deadness won’t come easy this time Alas you’ve screwed me big-time!  …

Control

These dodgy times when insanity rules over my perception, All of my rational ticks get rebellious at once!   But, When everything’s about you; I feel splinters inside of me, Shards of inanity, Flying away from each other In every possible direction!   Darling, I’m never a step ahead It’s you who controls my mind!…

Imprinted Scars

Palpitations Restoring giddiness Tummy aches Shaky legs The wave returns; The familiar air, Somber weather!   We get poles apart In a jiff, Yesterday; You were me, Today, I don’t know you!   Frustrating, How this poem doesn’t rhyme! Alas, You’ll forget everything, It’s just a matter of time!   And yet My struggle, With…
