Moonless midnight of my mind.

Don’t just dip your toes

Into the moonless midnight

Of my mind

Plunge headfirst

With abandon

Make your home

Among the dark waters

Swim, until you find

All the secret caves.

Don’t be afraid, darling

For I know

You are no stranger

To the darkness.

Colour me happy with

All the shades

Of your name

And the day the sun

Finally begins to shine

Down on my waters

Will be marked in history

As the day two souls danced

To the whispers

Of a heart

That is broken no more.

Sunday, every day Sunday.

The odour

Of your departure

Lingers in the air

Your broken promises

Float in front

Of my eyes-

I reach out

And curl my fist

Around a few of them

And desperately shove it

Inside my mouth

But they dissolve

To nothingness

On my tongue

And I’m left

With the taste

Of your sweet lies.


Strength comes knocking

Once in a while

But the heartbreak

That always seems to

Linger just behind

The door,

Pushes it away-

I can hear the thud

As my strength

Hits the front porch

Muttering curses

Under its breath

For ever having tried.


I spend my days

Drinking loneliness

Like whiskey,

Singing haunted songs

To the sky,

Eating poetry for lunch-

For me, now,

Sunday mornings

Will always smell

Like your absence.

I see poetry

Everywhere I go-

In your lonely eyes


The haunted songs

The sad trees

In your garden


You can’t

Marry loneliness

And wonder why

Happiness won’t fall

In love with you.

Your absence


Its icy fingers

Around my soul,


The poetry

Out of me.

P.S. Sorry for disappearing. I have too many exams. *sigh* You know how it is, right?

You infiltrated my heart

Found your way in

Through the tiny cracks

Until my heart was

Full of you.

But now that you’re gone

My heart is empty

Loneliness is slowly

Eking its way in

Through the very same

Doors you walked out of.

You left and let

The Lonely in

My whole body is swimming

In loneliness now

Sometimes it slowly comes

Leaking through my eyes

And, other times

My fingers bleed loneliness

Onto pages and pages

Of blank white paper.

Poetry is not written

With words

Its written with feelings

Dipped in heartbreak,

With a pinch of fear

Thrown in, with sorrow

Seeping in through the

Edges, and packaged with

Loneliness, complete with a

Bow of melancholy

On top.
