Faltering

Internal inclinations push against

walls slowly cracking

amidst faltering

endurance.

Calling it

:

patience.

Nightfall

Nightfall has a funny way

of bringing the things

we try to put away

to light

You

shttefan-280960.jpg

You let yourself in.

You

walked through doors

and floors

covered by a myriad of flaws

we never bothered to look at

,

You

placed your self

on internal shelves

I never wanted

to reach

,

You

barricaded your self

on levels which

were never warranted

,

You

collected dust

in bursts

dispersed

across the worst

outbursts

never previously rehearsed

,

You

went through phases

we called faces

in vases

always held

until they fell apart

;

But

you

Were never let in.

You

Never bothered to look at.

You

Never wanted to reach,

You

Were never warranted,

You

Never previously rehearsed,

You

Were always held.

Until

You fell apart.

Solitary

the-how-photographer-37973.jpg

nightfall settles

into crevices

of blue

sky.

solitary

shadows

bleed. into

backdrops of

lightbulbs and

fleeting existence

  • how many times do we stay when we don’t need to?

Choking II

Koushik Das.jpg

It transcends into empty skies.

As we watch

the same birds

that flew

in the tranquility

of their emptiness

Sink

into

the same

spaces

that used to hold them

Sink

into

a canvas

that was never painted

Sink

into

oceans

that didn’t mind holding them

 

As we try

to hold onto

everything

that began letting

us go.
