Who lied to you!

Who told you? You have to smile even if you don’t feel like for the world to be convinced of your happiness? Who told you, you must dance to the rhythm of earth’s dwindling drum to belong? Who told you, you must be beautiful before can be loved? Who ever deceived you to drink, bitter […]

Suck those tears

You’re sitting.. On your bed alone. The events of the day play all over in your head. His maliciously handsome eyes glaring at you, his stern voice echoes in your head, loud. “You’re not even worth it”, ” you’re not smart” or “you’re just too dull for this..” It goes on and on. You’ve ran […]

Gratitude

Lately I’ve been happy a lot, I find I smile more and easier, I greet almost everyone when I’m out and I compliment excessively. Often times I catch myself smiling for no reason and trust me the feeling is sublime. I’m tempted to think myself already successful because if you’d ask me what success meant […]

Bellows of a maimed fellow

Hark! Bellows of a maimed fellow Haunted, taunted with stunted knees Poised with my cursed stick, my blessings Stoop not but to give alm to that poor fellow Bitter is the pill of hope I swallow every morn Sweet as nectar my tongues taste at dawn Broken is my heart when it sees a maiden […]
