I CAN'T LET GO - A SAD LOVE POEM


There are times when I can't breathe,
missing you so much
that living hurts.

I don't question why I had to lose 
this game called love for the upteenth time.
You really were the only one for me.

Cause you made me see the beauty 
in this cruel world and that I could survive 
even when darkness surrounded me.

Oh! What would I give
to hear your magical voice calling my name
or when you laughed on my pj loud.

I want to rest my head on your chest, 
close my eyes,
and fall asleep without a care or fear.

Come back if only in my dreams.  
Come back.

WHEN WE FIGHT WITH EACH OTHER


I waited n waited,
for my man to forgive.
But he seemed angry and hurt.
And I was being a freaking pain too,
But what he didn't understand 
was that I was hurt as well.
We were in the middle of
a nasty fight, accusing each other.

I don't know what he is afraid of,
this man with a beautiful smile.
I have my insecurities too,
but we have to put that aside.
And I know it isn't easy,
But no one said love was.


HE IS MOVING ON - A SAD POEM


I wasn't supposed to look,
but I cheated and did.
Soon seeing images of him
laughing, posing, enjoying himself.

He was surrounded by friends
and a few unknown faces.
My ex had clearly moved on
while I remained stuck.

Thousands of thoughts passing
my mind, I wanted to cry.
There was something missing in the pics,
Me.

All the plans, past, present and future,
went for a toss.
I found myself
alone and unloved.

Nothing anyone says seems to help.
This emptiness hurting me as it penetrates.

I WILL - AN INSPIRING POEM FOR WOMEN TO HEAL


I was tired and lonely,
wanting to quit.
But no one could see
the pain in me.

Then you came along, 
promising me love.
I gave in too quick
for my weary soul.

I fell so badly,
seeing nothing.
You were my oyster,
my world, my joy.

I made so many plans.
But didn't know
how things worked.
For too long I have waited alone.

My happiness was short-lived.
A flood came in
and with it took away
all your lies.

Days go by
when I question everything,
it hurts to breathe
and yet I soldier on.

Soon the pain will subside
and my scars will heal.
I don't know how long I will lead.
But I will.

YOU ARE STILL ALIVE IN MY HEART


You think just because we don't talk,
I won't remember you.
But nothing is further from the truth.
You still haunt me in my thoughts.

There are days when I think I should move on,
but then I see the folder 
with all your images in it
and tears begin to roll.

I can delete or hide them,
but what do I do of all the memories.
The ones that remind me of Us.
Of all the sad and the happy times.

I ask life for a second chance with you,
Cause you are still alive in my heart.

WHAT KIND OF LIVES DO WE LIVE?


What kind of lives do we live,
when I hate the work I do?
And yet, day and night,
devote my time to it.

My wife's beside me.
Don't remember the time
we last romanced each other.
Our love has empty meanings.

My child's around somewhere.
He made a plea
for us to play.
I have to pick between him and work.

My parents stay afar.
I wish I could visit often.
They are old and frail,
they need me besides them.

My city doesn't sleep,
always on the run.
Tempers loud, sympathy unspoken for.
You can be lost and found here.

Relatives, friends,
I see them occasionally.
A respite to my nostalgic heart.
I wonder where the good times have gone.

What kind of lives do we live,
I keep asking my soul this?
The one that's dying a slow death
and I keep fighting to revive it.

DONT GIVE UP ON ME TOO SOON


Easy to put the blame
and run.
But relations require
constant efforts.

I have the habit of
worrying.
And generally, he sees,
the worst in me.

My anxiety gets worse,
I drive him crazy.
We end up in a fight,
my condition gets
worse.

But in all the noise,
I never tell him,
how much
he means to me.

Or what I feel for him.
Don't know how to tell.
Or how I am secure when I am with him
Or that he is the light in my life.

I get caught up in fear
and it refuses to let me go.
I just wish, he doesn't
give up on me too soon.

LOST MY LOVE LETTERS


I was on my way
to the post office
with a packet full of
love letters.

I don't know how or
when,
but I lost them
on my way.

I had written them over
a few years
to a guy
I loved secretly.

On this particular day,
I had gathered my courage
and finally decided
to confess my love.

But alas,
it was not to be.

I DON'T NEED TO BE RESCUED


I fell in the water
and knew not how to swim or drown.
And society had taught that a Princess
had to be rescued to meet her Prince.
So I waited patiently for him.

Tired of waiting, I thought of seeking help.
First came a bird.
He promised to fly me away.
But as he gave a leg to save me
we realised he was not so strong.

So he said he will go, eat and
when his strength had regained,
he would come and save me.
He didn't come.
But I saw him fly with another of his type.

Next came a crocodile, but he appeared to be nice.
So I thought why not.
Oh! But was he wicked, he just tried to bite.
At first I thought it happened accidentally,
but then he continued and I had to escape.

But the scars are my lessons learnt.
Experienced and wise, next I stopped a fish.
Asked him if he would teach me how to swim.
Then came a tortoise, followed by a frog.
They each taught me something.

I could easily just leap out of the water.
I thanked my new friends and bid them goodbye.
But society wasn't happy.
You are a Princess, they tried to remind me,
I had to act a certain way.

I asked them where they were
when I was drowning.
They said, it was a lesson I had to learn.
I called them two faced bastards.
And they seemed shocked.

However, it had dawned on me,
That I really didn't care.
My life is my life.
My choices define me.

Why then must I behave
the way someone else wants me to be?
I am just a girl, trying to be a lady
in whichever capacity I want to mould myself to be.
