Be nice

As simple as it seems, it doesn’t really come off naturally to a whole lot of people. While some may be exceptional at faking it and would readily give a blinding smile, others can only manage a stiff jaw. You could call it pretense but at least they tried. Some credit should be given them; […]

The Internet

The internet For knowledge it was birthed To inform, uplift, nourish Not deform, surfeit, brainwash To validate, not relate And promote originality, not mediocrity We were all drawn to her And like Peter’s net A massive catch it fetched But then, it’s fabric soon got broken From misuse and abuse And all who couldn’t swim […]

Perfectly imperfect

We’ll are in a big circle, that connect us together.. The pursuit of happiness. We’ve all made promises we couldn’t keep, deadlines we couldn’t meet and dreams yet to be achieved but in all we’ve survived.

Does he know.. That when he laughed I melt into puddles of marshmallow goo When he smiled.. A swarm of butterflies flutter in my tummy When he cried.. The universe and time stops for a while That when he hugged me.. Whiffs of masculine scent bewitched and still haunts me And when he said bye.. […]

Broken

I yearn to sojourn another’s soul He may have mine if he pleases I crave a feeling of oneness.. Same breaths One heartbeat I’d love him to be broken Like me, not much May he embrace my bruises Scar-y stories And see the stars in my gloomy sky Pierce my pieced heart with golden rays […]

Beautiful poison

Hark it doth lurks! On the borrowed faces of brothers and friendly foes Fear them, that call white black and black white These blazoned beauties, mourners they seem but their eyes are full of treachery With sweet words deadlier than death, They would change their state to suit your taste Beware, for decayed roses are […]
