Her

I wanted to undress her thoughts,
undress her flaws,
strip her of her weaknesses,
until perfection was left.
Yet she was perfect in her imperfections;
her flaws were her highlights,
her presence was cathartic.
She was a sweet poison.
And I was addicted.

Lost Love [7DTH]

As she whispered sweet nothings in my ear, I realised that’s exactly what it was. Nothing. There was no love, no commit, no lust. Just a couple, lost in transition.

From loneliness to false romance, her insecurities were wrapped in empty promises and pain-filled yesterday’s. Anxiety being her only friend, and depression her father; there was no messiah for this fallen angel.

As we had a discussion on a past she no longer remembered, where overthinking was a way to pass time, till time passed us, and soon it was too late – too late for the future she dreamt of as a child, she realised she was living in the shadow of her wishes.

I wish we didn’t live in should’ve beens and could’ve beens. Alas, those lost words fell on deaf ears. But maybe these words can save you. Pick up the rose young child, and keep dreaming. It’s not over.

Love and Death [7DTH]

Fallen angels and fallen petals

nothing left to save us 

except our faithless ways

for we are merely sinners,

Merely mortals, merely 

lifeless bodies and fleeting souls.

Love no longer lives here,

only death resides

in our brittle bones 

and bloodless veins.

Yet we remain vain 

When there is nothing to see

Except for an empty shell

An empty me.

Just another day 

In this lifeless body

And characterless soul.

As fallen angels 

we have a duty 

to save ourselves 

and those who pity 

The dead and the broken.

The tears from the fallen

Swimming across pale

Blood-drained faces

Praying love will prevail 

Yet only time will tell…

Birds of A FeatherĀ 

Birds of a feather

let’s fly away together

please. Before daylight falls 

And dark clouds lamenting 

Release tears of thunder 

Upon us all.

Birds of a feather

Let’s fly away together,

find a way to get

Far from here. Where we

fear our shadows and 

there is nothing to live for.

Birds of a feather

Let’s fly away together,

flap our wings into 

The distance. Escape our 

past. And rise higher,

Higher than Icarus

Birds of a feather

Let’s fly away together 

Oh how beautiful it is

To feel the wind. 

Oh how beautiful it is 

To be free.

Birds of a feather

Let’s fly away together,

on our last journey.

My wings grow tired, 

Let me rest under the 

Tree of life.
