Like a sigh 


Like a sigh escaping my lips, I release words for you to see. Like sunshine and wind, I hope you feel their touch on your skin.

This thirst in me
For your touch
You kiss me
My cheeks, my eyes
I put my fingers in your hair
Ever so slowly, direct you to my lips
And we kiss, for the very first time
Soft lips meet, your top to my bottom
My top to your bottom
Again, again
Tongues seek each other
Teeth clash as I taste
You, passion, me
Briefly I open my eyes
To see you staring into me
In a way no one has
Closing them again,
I pull you closer still
Until I am on your lap
My thighs around your lean hips
Your hands on my backside
We start moving to a rhythm
Our rhythm
Kisses are not smooth anymore
But a bit sloppy, messy
And I’m loving it
Every minute
Every second
Of this dream.

These silences have killed words on my tongue. I gulp down a bloodbath each time I’m left alone.

Yet, I crave these moments of honesty.

In my mind, I relive my life. A truth, a lie. Outside, I share this world. But inside, I am alone.

And it is in this state, we all live. Floating in an unending darkness, looking for some meaning, looking for hope.

Life is a lovely chaos


Enclosed within these four walls

I’d forgotten what it felt like

To feel the sun warm on my skin

To talk to the winds

To remember old and not so old moments

To meet people who’ve known you since you were a kid

To get so lost in a minute, you can’t listen to your thoughts

To just breathe, in and out

To leave behind people who are toxic in their manners

To consume poison with the cold stars, away from the chatter

To sit and see nature be itself

To immerse in salt water, a quiet dark place

To let yourself feel, flow with the breeze

To leave behind tension and worries

To dream of light instead of dark

To think of your creation, your art.

The world is still the same

I’m back, within these four walls

But now, I know

There’s a reason why I am here

My experiences, perspectives, feelings and thoughts

Limited by my skin, away from all

In death, I will be free

A part of this energy that is in you and me

Till then, I’ll tangle myself in people and ghosts

Indeed, life is a lovely chaos.

There are people all around

People in throngs and crowds

People fighting for space in my memories

People with whom I talk

Yet I sit, writing this

Hoping someone will read it

And make me realise

I’m not the only person alive tonight.

It is so easy to get lost
In a crowd of known, unknown faces
Strange touches on my skin
Eyes on me, inside out
New places, old feelings
Of detachment, darkness, lingering sunshine
Bright blue sky that hovers right above us
Everywhere, everywhere
Brown eyes, brown hair, fair skin
A little madness, a little anxiousness
I get from this side of my family
Stories, people and warmth
A little spice, a little bitterness
Same old faces, same old complains
Of 20-25-50 years
I wonder, ten thousand miles away
A couple of centuries later
Who will remember us?
Who will remember these moments of right now?
Who will remember these stories, these people
These crinkles in the eyes and bright smiles
Sour words and ugly truths
That have made me, me.
Who will remember me?
There are no answers
Just a growing understanding
Of what it feels, to be human
To live in a time where time is everywhere
Yet with no one, no one at all.
