    Fireflies

    Curse the powers that be
    The refrain from distain
    The mere mention of your name
    That draws me back to a time
    Young and innocent
    And full of wine

    I remember
    The cold, dark and callous
    Sour lament
    The way you abused my trust
    To your heart's content

    Torn purse strings
    Plucked like so many feathers
    Fallen from the cheap
    Pagentry of old wedding bell rings

    Promises taken back
    Gifts given and unused
    Digital memories hacked
    My mind racing

    From all eternity's infantessimal
    Peculiar moments shared
    Like so many coffee cups
    Poured out in rich display
    As only if to say
    You wounded me
    For good

    You never wanted
    To run away with me
    But yet here we are
    Stuck like so many fireflies
    In a jar

    Our time now flickering away
    In sobriety
    No wishes were ever granted
    Like birds that never landed

    The tragic reservation
    Lost in loveless abandon
    And no will to fight
    The wreck that is our life
    So slow and twisted is the knife
    That hides behind
    What we always thought
    Was right

    Queen of hearts
    ..........................


    Her wandering soul craved closure,
    She was too tired from walking miles.
    Once this gypsy queen walked the blazing sun,
    From where she got her feet burnt.

    Then she walked the crescent moon,
    And felt the moon dust-
    healing her cracked up wounds.
    She used to pluck petals off from her
    Flower tiara and offer it to the king of nights.
    This gypsy queen had walked miles-
    without end on both sides.

    But in the end it didn't matter as both her masters gifted her the same heavy-aching heart.

    BURIED BLOSSOMS

    You once told me our love was the starry night
    And our hearts the vastless milkyway that never died
    In bed of ashes we had laid our love
    In smiles bleeding hope from the darkness we had known
    With curled hands grasping the moon's edge
    Petals of summer drifting towards hearts that were cold to heat
    To rest in scents of bliss carved from barks of breathing trees

    Had our sinking hearts heard the distant sound of the mournful horns
    Would it have clung to the strings of our yearning smiles?
    But cherry blossoms never last the winter's cold grip
    They fall away slowly towards beds of dust that cover the blooming souls with darkness
    Till each last petal is reborn into gloomy horizons
    So we breathed in whispers that graced the air with golden scents of love
    While our end beckoned from the distant whirling wind on edge
    Dancing on precipice of hills that fall towards earth's beckoning hands
    We tempt the fate that rushes towards our entwined hands
    Until the silver moon gave way to the fire of the orange sun
    And we were burnt underneath the now falling blossoms
    Fall slowly, breathe slowly, cry slowly
    Slowly

    Fire works bleed heat into the floating memories in our eyes
    To be free, on wings of an eagle fleeing towards the splashed horizon with fears locked behind bars
    Deaf to the unending tremors in our hearts
    Perhaps the silence will wash the permanent stains of regret
    Tears form hallows of peace on pale cheeks moving towards the shadows
    Will it fall, will it stay
    Forever frozen with regrets locked in its glassy gaze
    Or perhaps our fates were never meant to dance to the same tunes of eternity
    So now go on towards the beckoning hands of blissful rest
    While the blossoms are covered in beds of darkness
    Hands entwined even underneath the roots of the moon
    Eyes close slowly
    Slowly

    Crime

    You carry the sun and moon
    And constellations in the palm
    Of your hand, you have roses,
    And poems and nectars from yonder
    Worlds ticked in the folds of your robe,
    Let my eyes cruise over the eclectic
    Delight of your being, I am longing
    To be washed in your gaze,
    My tongue craving the taste of your
    Name in my mouth.
    Oh merchant of dreams, you knock
    Every door in my neighborhood,
    But I am kept yearning, till you
    Become the moon at whose sight
    The wolf in me begins to howl,
    Oh prince of my wildest dreams,
    Tell me my sin, what is my crime,
    To have your lips caress my parched
    Skin, must I wait till the end of time?

    In the eyes of the morning sun
    I dread of our parting
    Let it be for once a moment of forever in your arms
    That I may not wish more of staying than bidding goodbye
    But if it is in sorrow I must face the future that lies ahead without your warmth
    And spend a lifetime of missing the embrace I once had
    I'd rather bid the world farewell and stay with you in paradise

  • clutterednotes 89w

    Be it overdue to spill my love for you
    And you may have turned your back to what we once knew
    My heart rests unwavered in every passing day
    Silently longing, patiently missing, forevermore held a hostage by your wondrous being

    Chasing the owl

    She was a slow-soft fox but she was still a wild child. He is just but an epic memory to her so she follows the sun hoping to find the moon where her beloved owl hunts the wild flowers.

    he said "let's just enjoy it while we can
    if you don't want to I'll understand"
    that's much easier said than done
    when it feels like you're the one
    you're out of my reach, although I try
    begin to preach to myself and I
    tell her "get real, you need to be smart
    you're carelessly betting with your heart
    and your current hand is so damn weak
    you'll never get off this losing streak"
    but she keeps her heart on the table
    knowing what they have isn't stable
    and she's not blind, she can see
    she understands their reality
    she knows it has an expiration date
    whether or not they are soul mates
    she see's their hearts getting shattered
    she looks away, it doesn't matter
    although they both know how this ends
    neither can stop playing pretend
    patiently they wait for the day
    when they're forced to break away
    they grab as much happiness as they can
    on their way down, before they land
    cause at the bottom they know it's over
    where fate begins a hostile takeover
    and pulls apart what should be
    no matter how hard they plea
    life taught them something, although rough
    it taught them that love's not enough
    because you love, doesn't mean it'll be
    neither understood that more clearly
    but they continued on just the same
    running full force into the flames
    not looking back or caring what's ahead
    holding on tightly to their deathbed
    feeding their addiction, giving out hits
    strung out until life makes them quit
    each hit a risk of being left alone
    caressing gently their war zone
    selfishly feeding what they crave
    fulfiling their appetite in their grave

    The Last letter of the Lost Egyptian Queen

    I am with you. I saw you fought in battles, dreached in sweat and blood, with you fiery eyes, with the sword you father has given you. I heard your wails and cries when he died. I was there. You did not see me, nor knew my presence, but I was there. I saw you bow down your step mother who took your throne that was rightfully yours. I saw you blindly follow her evry command for the good of the kingdom you would lay you life for. I saw your troubled mind as you began to see what was wrong. I saw betrayal on your eyes when she turned her back on you. I saw your hatred for throwing you out, for reducing you from a prince into an accessory to the throne. I felt the fire in your heart as you vowed to come back and take what was forcefully stripped from you, your honor, your title, your kingdom, your innocence, your smile, and all that is good. My heart broke with yours. I wept with you. I rejoiced with you when you succeeded.


    Then you finally met me, in the most impossible way. We fell in love and it was good. Those days were our paradise. With every touch, every kiss, every embrace, whispers of sweet nothings— oh how I treasured them! Even amidst the war, amidst the hatred your people whom you love, spit to you, amist heartbreaks, I loved you. All of you. 


    Even though I know how this will end, still I loved you. Even it is against the laws of heaven, still I loved you. Oh God knows I did. Even though I knew your fingers explored another, even when your skin's fragrance was mixed with countless bodies, I still did. I forgave you again and again and again. 


    But my child began to look strangely at his father. He looked at you with fear and anger, my love. You became your worst nightmare. You forgot all your promises and visions as you got consumed with the power you hold. It crept into you, slowly but surely. 


    You broke our hearts love. And I saw it. I watched but I cannot save myself from it.


    You were no longer a husband to me but a king whom I should obey. I was your queen but no longer you treat me as your most beloved woman, as you countlessly promised me.


    And now, with nothing left of me, I will leave your side, back to where I truly belong. 


    As our queen, as the mother of your children, I beg of you, be a father to them. This is my last request, my king.


    Bidding my goodbye,

    Your forgotten queen

    Two different worlds

    You and I
    We aren't perfect set of teacups
    You are so different
    Lost in your own dreams
    Your world completely different
    Aloof from mine
    I am here clueless in life
    And you are there with
    Thousand different dreams
    With aims so high

    You and I
    Are we on the same voyage?
    Your journey seems heading in
    Different direction than mine
    Your perfect world
    Can't accommodate my so little
    World full of imperfections
    You are born gold clad
    And I'm here all in rags

    You and I
    We aren't on the same page
    Your story is different than mine
    Your story seems interesting
    With happy ending
    And I am just incomplete pages
    Of sad story
    With never ending
    Miseries in life

    I know I'm your first thought when you wake up in the morning,
    And I know it is me in your mind when you fall asleep in the night.
    I know that you think about me every now and then,
    And I know that you want to be with me.
    And maybe, you've even started to fall in love with me.
    But is that enough?
    Is that enough for us to be together when you don't even want to admit it infront!
    When you say your hurts from the past changed you,
    Now you're not the 'You' you used to be once,
    You say you can't feel, you say you can't love anymore..
    Yet I was willing to be with you, and help you heal.
    But every time you choose to show that you care, and then you'd just distant yourself from me.
    Not holding on tight enough, but neither you want to let go me..
    Tell me what should I do?
    Because this surely is hurting me more than you realise.

    Toxicity

    Those cigarette butts that he calls his own are just ashes of him flying away with the wind. He's withering away with each puff just like she's losing her grip on reality with every sip. It was said that they were toxic together. It seems like their toxicity followed them in separation.

    Future

    He kissed my damp eyelids and said, " Don't worry, we'll have our forever." I smiled sadly at him. "What's our forever when this world has no tomorrow?", I replied and kissed his dry, cracked lips.

    Tragic love

    The magic of her beauty was traced on every inch of his soul and body.
    His body was embraced by her touch,
    Her feelings and her presence.
    Everything she felt was his.

    after few years,

    she had a yard where,
    flowers bloomed and groomed themselves for the sunlight,
    Dancing with the tunes of winds.
    Yet,
    They never knew how did the happy love story ended as such a tragedy.
    Where her death marked the blood stains on his body.

    Alotta Trouble

    Whiskey and cigarettes
    Your deep mind
    My quick sass

    We were Johnny Walker Black
    Dripping from
    A Xanax rimmed shot glass

    Let's find a little trouble
    You know I don't mind the pain
    Let's cause a little trouble
    Bc I know that you feel the same
    Let's be a little trouble
    Let them think that we're insane
    Bc we're a lot of trouble
    And we don't owe them a fucking thing

    Your blue eyes got so bright
    When you seen my silk thigh highs
    We rolled in bed all night
    Your hands seeking my new sites

    Let's find a little trouble
    You know I don't mind the pain
    Let's cause a little trouble
    Bc I know that you feel the same
    Let's be a little trouble
    Let them think that we're insane
    Bc we're a lot of trouble
    And we don't owe them a fucking thing

    Mickey and Mallory
    2013
    Driving fast
    Firing at everything
    Swigging from the bottle
    Don't give a fuck about nada
    We're gonna burn it all down
    Destroy everything

    Let's be a lot of trouble
    Let them think that we're insane
    Bc we were a lot of trouble
    And we never owed them a fucking thing

    Adored

    I close my eyes
    The blue ones
    You adored

    The ones
    That were filled
    With love

    Whom
    You'd write
    Poems for

    I close my eyes
    As a tear creeps
    Down my cheek

    There are
    No more poems
    We can't even
    Speak

    I close my eyes
    And I think of your words
    I first imagine your mouth
    The shape
    The curve

    How the lyrics
    Would tumble out
    As I watch you take
    A drag

    I feel my lips
    Curling up
    I always smiled
    When you sang

    My eyes are closed
    As I remember your touch
    The way you smelled
    The pause
    Your voice saying
    I love you so much

    My eyes are still closed
    Tears flowing down
    Breaking inside
    Knowing I'll never again
    Hear these words
    From your sound

    I open my eyes
    The blue ones
    You adored

    But will never again
    Write a poem for

    Religion Is Dead

    I fell in love with an angel one night
    With his crooked smile and deep eyes

    He showed me God
    While looking up
    from between my thighs

    It's the only religion
    I'll ever formally recognize

    Desire
    Ten High
    Friendship
    Pabst

    His beautiful mind
    My desire to collapse
    Into something
    Secure and profound
    Like Moses parting the Red Sea
    My passage had been found

    Intensity
    Spades
    Love
    Hand slap

    Just waiting behind that Madison door
    We're not only each other's salvation
    But also the redemption we did't know
    The other had been searching for

    Secrets
    Vodka
    Stubborn
    Too much Pabst

    We imagined a life in the Garden of Eden
    But before it could begin
    It already started to collapse

    Passion
    More whiskey
    Chess
    Tears

    You built a cross
    Made out of my bones
    To martyr yourself, my dear

    Hotels
    Aching
    Different states
    Lies

    I fell in love with an angel one night
    With his crooked smile and deep eyes

    My soul
    Still clenched in his teeth
    Long after his demise

    The night he showed me The Devil
    He still had my heart in his hands
    When he left me behind here
    To give into those wicked demands

    My God is gone
    Our apocalypse has reared its ugly head
    My angel has fallen
    My religion is dead

    Take Me Too

    You took back
    my soul
    The night
    your body went cold

    I felt it
    slip out of me
    As if it belonged to you
    And had only
    been given to me on loan

    I woke
    feeling an agonizing hole
    Calling you constantly
    Terrified
    of the truth to be told

    I banged and
    Screamed and
    Cried and called

    You didn't answer the door
    you couldn't get up at all

    I found you
    lying there
    Eyes open
    With their beautiful
    confused stare

    Your body
    Still and stiff
    Broken
    Beyond repair

    You were dead
    the last time I laid on you

    Both of us soulless

    Me begging
    for The Universe to
    Take me too

    Without The Boom

    No one gets me like you do
    No matter how hard they try
    Or I want them to

    It was so effortless for us
    We just fell into place
    Could tell how the other was feeling
    From a simple look on their face

    We should've been allowed to be happy
    We really did nothing wrong
    It shouldn't hurt this badly
    Truly loving someone

    You were supposed to be my Johnny
    I, your June
    Follow behind one another
    Our love still in bloom

    Only, now I'm a dirty Courtney
    Missing the spoon
    While you're a martyred Kurt
    Without the Boom
