Broken Souls

A broken girl once came across a flawed boy
Two old souls, the way universe had written

She broke through him, gave him a purpose
Reborn and ascended; if his past was unwritten

Making all his days, brighter with her smile,
As if the strength of the sun depended upon it

How can imperfection be loved he thought
How can her love fill his emptiness, bit by bit

But it wasn’t just love, he was her obsession
And like all obsessions, hers came to an end

It’s always the broken who try to fix the others
And they leave, when there isn’t more to mend


One soul filled with despair and remorse;
A beautiful girl, with her dreams broken

Another soul, shattered yet lighthearted;
A boy in love, with his outright devotion.

He sang to her soul his song of freedom,
She craved for him, with her demons dancing

Their love was pristine, and unconditional
‘Twas hurting them both, yet complementing.

She was the phoenix and he was the iron,
But he became steel due to her wild flare

And when she rose from her ashes, anew
She was like wind; everywhere and nowhere.


Child of shadows, once born of flesh
Un-winged, amidst fear and agony

‘Fraid of the lurking and yet to come
Oblivious, to the code of chivalry.

Voids in his desire were unveiled, as
Love taught him; death with dignity.

In desire to be and in wanting to live
His wretched soul began to purge,

As he wept at the beauty of night
He commenced to sing his own dirge,

Then born again of fire; ascended,
Like Phoenix must burn to emerge.

Nocturnal Lies

A mind in a nocturnal reverie,
The ominous hour ere sunrise

Perpetual variance in notes
A pleasant melody, full of lies

Wretched soul, sleep deprived
Exhaustion of the rheumy eyes

Disentangling the ambivalence,
Hoping for an utter liberation

Perhaps being accustomed to it,
Spurning the needed salvation

The perks of a conflicted soul,
Living by perennial indecisions.



As his darkest night ended,
He found her in the rays of sun

Cherished the utmost delight
Felt fortunate, survived the stun.

Stared into her darting eyes
Perplexed by her elegancy,

Questioned her charming smile
Lost himself in her delicacy.

She casted a spell on his soul
As the love’s web was spun,

And holds the key to his heart
Oblivious to what she’s done.

Lamentable Soul

The cursed adolescent, godforsaken
Dwelling through the utter desolation

Absence of landscape, flora and fauna
Kindling the sand, the scorching sun

Persistent starvation, dehydrated
Fading life-force, obliterating

Wandering the barrens, little one
Seeking the endless mirages, hoping

Feeding on the pernicious cacti
Searching for a sprightful borehole

Impelling into the waning sunlight
Praying for his unfortunate soul
