bleeding (a collaboration)

written with the wondrous Nandita (in italics). an incredible pleasure to have her on this. 

 

there are nights

filled with crescent

moons that cut

at the tips

of stubborn hearts.

with stars

that dim

and veins

that pour

on sheets

of skies.

and angels

that cry.

and goodbyes

that linger.

and on such nights

of heartbeats sullen

from remembering 

waned dreams,

breaths reek

of nostalgia 

piercing through 

pallid veins

to burst open

tears of poetry 

waxes paths 

dimly illuminated 

by fallen stars 

and some 

still silent scars
