How much more proof

Did I need

To finally accept

That we

Were never meant to be?

She was my pillar

My everything,

But locking lips

With another,

That wasn’t me

Stopped

What was in motion

… What was supposed to be

Never became.

I succumbed to my vices,

My way

Of escaping reality.

Usually

She’d try to stop me, you know

Saying it was “harmful”

Made sense,

She was my angel after-all,

But now she’s gone

And I never found out why.

Its been years since then

And i’m still

Knee-deep

In immorality.

“Don’t judge me”

I always tell them

“Its who I am”

But they never listen,

All of them,

Except one.

I’ve only met her

A couple of times

– Not much, but enough –

For me to see

That there’s something.

Its not that she’s pretty,

Or other-worldly,

Its real simple,

She accepts me

5 Day Photo/ Story Challenge Day 4

The Chaser Of Dreams nominated me for the 5 Day Photo/ Story Challenge. You can check out her blog here.

 

The Guidelines:

Post a picture each day for five consecutive days. Attach a story to accompany
*can be fiction / non-fiction
*poem / short paragraph
*each day nominate another blogger

 

Missed a post yesterday because of some personal but not really serious issues; but we’re back on track again with another slightly dark tale (well, I hope its not THAT dark). In more ways than one this part of the series has ties with (part 1); so its a spiritual successor of sorts (I will neither confirm nor deny that the woman in part 1 is either one of the women mentioned in this poem 😛 ). Please let me know what you think of the series so far in the comments section 🙂 would love to hear your thoughts and opinions.

Oh, and the lesson here is that…uhh…um…well…Black and white pictures really feed the theme of the series don’t they? 😀

 

For my Day 4 nomination I choose Kasim’s Korner. You can visit the blog here.

 

Later people! 🙂

Kisses that wake

Hidden senses

That you never even

Knew existed.

5 Day Photo/ Story Challenge Day 1

I would like to thank The Chaser Of Dreams for nominating me for the 5 Day Photo/ Story Challenge,  You can check out her blog here.

The Guidelines:

Post a picture each day for five consecutive days. Attach a story to accompany
*can be fiction / non-fiction
*poem / short paragraph
*each day nominate another blogger

I’ve decided to use my Untold Chronicles series for this challenge; a series of micro-poems telling stories from a vast set of perspectives. Some might be a bit dark, i’m trying to play on reality as opposed to fantasy. To balance things out some of the poems won’t have dark tones, like this one 🙂 I hope you enjoy.

For my Day 1 nomination I choose Pearly, one of the sweetest souls I’ve met on WordPress. You can visit her blog at Designing Life

Checkpoint.

That finish line,

Looks nice doesn’t it?

Such a shame,

How others don’t see

How it could make

For an even better

Checkpoint.

Diamonds.

I’d like to

Smother you

With blissful kisses

Well-crafted pieces.

Placing diamonds,

Upon diamonds

Emblazoned

On your heart,

Your four dimensional style,

A pattern reminiscent,

Of argyle.

“Us” and “Them”,

A collective

Of implications

And demarcations,

What builds distinction

Besides Human condition.

Questions.

Is it,

Necessarily pessimism,

To consider taking

Sky-diving gear

To Cloud 9?

Glimmering.

She smiles

Teeth glimmering

Reflecting the sun.

 

Nature has many ways

Of bringing about

Brighter days.

Perception.

Far beyond,

Reading between the lines

With you,

I read between the lies.

Humanity.

Emotions in excess,

Unyielding feelings

That I need to express,

Its what makes me human

That I sometimes detest.

My Words.

Through my words,

I sometimes wonder

If you feel

What I want you

To see,

Or does it all

Pull us asunder?
