    The "Charmer"

    Corrupted hearts are never satisfied.
    Leaches and leashed they are and become.
    Drowned by their own discontent, they reek of malevolence.
    Shrouded in veils of self delusions, of adoration
    Looking to the mirror for validation... Some form of love to come.
    Never enough to quench that burning ache in their bones, that voice which sings to them insecure thoughts. Seeking adoration that they could find within; if they only tried.Too scared or scarred to look inside, all that's there is Self Loathing, Death, and Pride. Nothing graceful or sweet resides beneath that mask they wear. When they look upon themselves the reflection is but a cold black stare. Lifeless, loveless, much left to be desired. They don't even realize they fashion their own death pyre.

    There's no water above me
    But what am I drowning in?

    There's no smoke in the air
    Yet why am I suffocating?

    There is a reason for everything
    But where are the answers now?

    There is truth in even the smallest lies
    Yet they only see my smiles

    Your Facade

    Sometimes when you call someone "too good to be true"
    It is actually a reflection of your own facade!

    Not everyone is faking it to win favours.
    Not everyone is nice to be always liked.
    Not everyone is you!

    Fool's feelings

    The Fool keeps falling for the Fake!
    The Fool believes the facade,
    Ends up with heartache!

    Oh Fool! Oh Fool!
    Why do you keep dreaming up?
    Oh Fool!
    Why do you wait for their love?
    Oh Fool! Oh Fool!
    You know it's not true!
    Oh Fool!
    They're never coming back to you!

    Oh Fool! My foolish Friend!
    You keep saying "Never again"
    Yet you let them back in so easily
    And in the end
    You're the one in pain!

    Oh Fool! Oh Fool!
    You need to stop.
    Oh Fool!
    You know you're not their Love!
    Oh Fool! Oh Fool!
    You know they're gone!
    Oh Fool!
    It's time to move on!

    Bird in a gilded cage

    Oh bird trapped in a gilded cage,
    No one understands your pain,
    your helpless rage,

    Trapped in a facade, you look at peace
    Inside you rages
    a sea of unease

    Your melancholic despair
    As you gaze into the blue yonder
    Seeing birds fly, do you too ponder?

    Suffering in silence behind bars of gold
    What a good life you have, you're always told

    Yet you are sold.

    Did she love him under a facade of loathe
    Or
    Did she loathe him under a facade of love?

    Mysterious Facade

    She presents herself mysteriously
    In the way she conversates,
    In the way she steps her legs,
    In the way she bites her lip,
    In the way she dresses her frame,
    So no person truly knows who
    She is underneath her facade

    My Safe Space

    Have you ever had that feeling of being so lost and alone that you didn't know whom to trust and whom to talk to anymore?
    You were so overwhelmed with emotions and the thought of sharing those emotions with someone else made you feel too vulnerable?
    All you did then was cut yourself off from the people whom you loved and cared about most to built a wall around yourself to protect you and others from being hurt.
    You realised too late that with each step you took, you lost the real "YOU" from within.

    Mask

    Tucked behind eyes, so shy,
    And a smile, ever sly,
    Is a palm tied up, entwined, with lies.
    I caught a glimpse of aces, five,
    The high-ranking hand you attempt to hide.

    If it's Poker you wish to play,
    A fellow competitor you won't find in I,
    Especially if "Poker" means "Make her cry."
    People proclaim, "Hate the game,"
    But it needs a player to survive.

    I am that kind of person
    Who acts tough and invincible in front of everyone..
    And then cries silently in the shower,when everone's asleep.. The pillow silencing my sobs..
    So that i can wake up and go back to being a facade..

    Is it bad to imagine?

    Imagine a promising life ahead,
    Or is it not my right?

    Is it bad to imagine?
    Imagine a life where I am finally free,

    I'd Rather Be Myself

    I'm feeling incongruous already,when I see you there
    Your perfect posture,your poised air
    You clink your glass for a toast
    Right as I spill wine all over my clothes.
    "Oh shit"I hiss,and am met with sympathetic smiles
    But yeah,I don't miss you rolling your eyes.
    I am used to such disapproving looks and exasperated sighs
    But I am learning how to conduct myself better-trust me,I'm trying.
    The back handed remarks don't help,especially when you just put up a facade of being wise.
    You may call me embarrassing,but atleast my personality isn't built on lies
    I would much rather be a dancing misfit than the Belle of the ball
    I am not afraid of owning up to my mistakes- I'll get back up every time I trip and fall.
    So what if I am a bit of beginner to social cues
    I don't ever put people down if they have contrasting views.
    I might be a weirdo-and someday I'll grow out of it
    But you will always be mean-I have no doubt of it.
    I'd rather laugh too loudly with my friends than suppress my feelings just to look polished
    Shoot me all the looks you want,my joyful spirit won't ever be demolished.

    Smile

    It's not easy to be Strong in the time when nothing is right,
    Wait for the moment for the sun to shine bright.
    Keep that Smile on your face,
    For it's the only facade that'll be a go-to place.

    Unspoken words,
    Undescribed feelings,
    Immense Silence.

    We bury them deep inside and yet look for a ray of light who can unleash the facade and look within!

    You

    A perfect being yet so complicated
    A mulish being yet so fragile
    Piling up the doubts
    And locking up the grudges on the inside
    Fighting the insecurities alone
    And telling yourself it will get better in time
    The 'You' behind your flawless facade
    That person, i see You
    It's alright, I understand You
    You don't have to say a word
    We are human after all.

    KINDLY REPOST THIS. ��

    You might not know what another person is going through, so kindly stop assuming details regarding their lives, let it be your spouse, sibling, friend or even child.
    If you feel like there is something off, coax the words out gently and diplomatically rather than jumping into conclusions or prying in an indecent manner.
    Empathise with them and sympathise. If they aren't willing to let their hearts out, let them know that you will be there for them, no matter what.
    Also, treat them with love, care and affection.
    If you know the reason for their misery or if you are the cause of it, think twice and work your way around. Don't be aggressive rather be compassionate. You aren't perfect neither are they, so stop seeking for perfection in them when you yourself aren't perfect.

    Heart Bleeds Words

    Sitting back relaxed but agitated,
    She poured her heart out,
    Not by speech but by written words,
    Lifting the burden off her chest

    To the world, she smiled,
    Happy and delightful,
    But nobody could see through her facade,
    Not that they cared anyways,

    The words simply flowed,
    No effort was made to make it rhyme,
    Coz the words made a rhythm on its own,
    Like the words that oozed to relieve her shattered heart.

    (if u can't read it)

    The fear of getting despised
    The fear of having all eyes
    The fear of being alone
    The fear of having you thrown

    My hands are trembling with all this fears
    My eyes are covered with all this tears
    I feel my anxieties welling up
    I feel my mind getting corrupted
    By all this negativity I tried to conceal
    I made this persona so that I could heal
    I tried so hard to be positive and bright
    But it didn't took long to turn off that light
    I've been traumatized by my past history
    I got bullied for simply just being me
    So I changed myself to be liked by all
    But little did I know it would become my down fall

    I find it easy to put up a facade of happiness rather than expressing myself.

    When I first met you, I could sense something off about you.

    I could see the tattered threads of the mask that you had put on.

    Holding on to the deception you called the truth.

    Oh, what secrets did you hide?


    Today, as I stand in front of you.

    Teasing you with the pieces of the mask,

    Clutched in my hands.

    Why are you so afraid?


    Did you not think that I would love you for who you truly are?

    Are you waiting for me to run away from you in disgust?

    As I inch closer to you, taking in your vulnerable self.

    Why are you taking a step back?


    Let me soothe away your pain...

    Is it that you are ashamed?

    For what you did and failed to do....

    Do not feel trapped by the follies of the past.


    Hold my hand and come out of your mental prison.

    Dark times are over...

    Let me be your light....

    I need you as much as you need me to be free...
