there's a folder in my gallery
titled 'home',
which has all of your photographs.
Because no matter stormy the days,
or how dark the nights get,
there's no place safer than home.

My brain is a field
infected by poisonous weeds
that feed on
my darkness and insecurities.

They trick me into believing
that I've cleared them out,
while they find a new fear to cling to
and proliferate unnoticed.
It gets too late
until I snap back from delusion.

And one day she wondered
if the diamonds that he brought for her
to make up for his faults,
were they meant to stay near her heartbeat
as a symbol of his love;
Or were they a disguise
for the noose around her neck
that seemed to tighten its grip
every time she shrugged off the feeling to break free.

Some days
my darkness lives within me like a homeless person who has found shelter.
Quiet. Not making much sound.
As if it is almost insignificant.
The other days,
it is like a parasite.
Feeding on my insecurities.
Sucking out every ounce of life from me.
It wants me to wake up all night
so that it can make a brief appearance under my eyes
to remind me it's still there.
It does not let me eat for days
so that it can find more space to expand and extend its stay.

If independence to you means being locked up in your houses,
because you're afraid that the hatred you had been watering all year long would transform
into a terror attack today,
well, Happy Independence Day then.

light will find a way into your soul.
it's just that on some days,
it would want you
to break apart like the dark clouds,
only to come and overpower the darkness.

Some days,
depression is about
hating your favourite skinny denims
or your body hugging tees,
because the darkness
takes so much of your space.
So you end up falling in love
with oversized clothes,
to let the light enter you.
And what concerns people is
whether you've lost your fashion sense
along with your sanity and smile.

Love
is not always
a picture
seen through
rose-tinted glasses.
Some days,
it is like
seeing the world
through an old,
hazy window.
My eyes hurt
but I still manage
to find
that one beautiful scene
to keep looking at
and stick around.

Some days, I regret staying by.

everyone
must fall in love
once in their life.
to learn
that love
is supposed to lift you up
to the skies.
