my shadow is annoying
follows me everywhere I go
that is if the sun is shining
late evening my shadow gets elongated
and makes me look thin
at noon, my shadow becomes portly
the only shadow that delights me
is when I see your shadow enter my room
and float across my bed until the sun goes down.
I hold it until morning

the lonely man at the window
the old man sits by the window
she left him here yesterday
said she would be back soon
he went to bed but could not sleep
has she stayed away on purpose?
next morning he arises again
to sit and wait even if it takes an eternity
he said he would wait
and that he did until his dying day
this morning at daybreak

Broken sensations flood the brain,
attempting analysis would be in vain,
a relentless emotional maelstrom,
wreaking havoc in the mind’s kingdom.
The weather has settled,
a calm both before and after a storm,
stuck in a time loop,
ashen nimbi gather around with scorn.
A shattered refraction pierces the veil,
unveiling islands in various shades of gray,

woman in a starbuck’s window
woman sits in a starbuck’s window
looking, searching, waiting, watching
is it the thing that watchers
in an Edward Hopper painting
wait, search, look, watch for
does she know
who she is looking for
who she is searching for
who she is waiting for
who she is watching for
I wonder if the subjects in

a Hopper in the making
three lonely men drinking coffee
in a coffee shop
how did I know they were lonely
they were straight out of an
Edward Hopper painting
like the people in “Night Hawks”
the light coming in the windows
reminded me of several of his paintings
of women looking out to bright light
that flowed in but brought no relief...

Locked away emotions
I won't let no-one inside
Behind a masked perfection
Is the place I run and hide
Alone I’m always thinking
My mind just fills with dread
Unknotting the confusion
That’s tied up inside my head
Trying to escape thoughts
But I can't find no way out
My eyes are slowly welling
My cries are silenced shouts
I'm looking for the answers
But they just never seem to come
Saturday 13th February 2021 5:31 pm
I don't want to hurt no more
I don’t want to cry
Don’t want to curse no more
Don't want to live this lie
Inside I feel I’m dying
The pain it hurts so bad
I feel I’m losing control
Every day I feel so sad
I’ve felt this way for a lifetime
Thought I’d mastered how to cope
But the pressures getting heavy
Feel I’m living with false hope
Thought talking would help to free me
But I feel I’v...

As a child
Friends knocked the door
You were waiting for
To hear the question
As it left their mouth
Asking your parents
If you were coming out
As a child
We’d run around
No care in the world
And acting the clown
And playing in mud
Making as many adventures
As we possibly could
As a child
I was building a wall
To keep me safe
Saturday 1st August 2020 1:08 pm
I’m sorry I couldn’t be there for you
I didn’t notice I was still running from the past
had blurry vision cause my pace was fast
unable to build anything that lasts
bonding never occurred to me
I was so desperate to be free
running I did, away from the past
now I’m alone
the first will be last
afraid to let you close
cause I might get attached
like with t...

Hello, can anyone hear me?
Hello, are you still there listening to my cries?
Listening to me as I fall on my knees, feeling so empty as this world falls apart
Hello, God! I need you! We all need you!
Our world slowly falls and we all begin to feel empty wanting human contact, human touch
God silently watches us and our empty lonely hearts
Waiting, quietly, for us all to call his ...

You’ve found yourself in a lonely place
With nothing left to lose but face
That you try to save but fail
To see the never ending trail
Of destruction from your hate
At an exponential rate
Trust has fallen, love is lost
You didn’t think what it would cost
You at the start when you began
And now I wonder if you can
Ever find a way to heal
The hurt that all but you ca...

an old man sitting alone at a diner
a child alone at recess because no one wants to play
an addict who sits at home inebreated because shes lonely
all of their minds have gone astray
feeling not good enough, feeling like no one cares
the feeling of loneliness is sometimes too much to bare
laying alone while your significant other sleeps
watching the ball drop on your own on ne...

Worst thing about New Year’s Eve,
being a romantic
but no one to love you the way you need
I’m holding back the urge to walk away
I’m holding onto responsibilities,
accepting my fate
Oh, will you please think of me
when you’re kissing your lover
send your positive vibes,
your good thoughts,
your shout outs,
send me a love I’d not want to live without
Wednesday 1st January 2020 2:53 am
When the Sky is dark blue
And the Dawn becomes true
Just pray, same as I do
May my wish touches you
When sun rises in the Sky
And the birds ready to fly
Just remember what I say
We'll meet, surely, in Mumbai
When you stay lonely at night
And you wear your lovely white
Just be sure I'm always right
You're lovely dream on sight

Is it a Curse .. or God's Grace
To live alone heart and place
Suffering what I always face
Hopeless to be myself again
Are these changes good for me
To be lonely always or not to be
To live away of what I see
I lost my hope and brain
Sadly to wake up and sleep
Painful to feel yourself cheap
Living alone hurts in deep
I wish to know why, but i...

Please, do the lost
and lonely among us
a favor of great
so we can

Hey there lonely girl,
what are you doing wandering around
these dark places?
Don’t you know that
evil lurks about?
The void is littered
with those who will use you,
scar your soul for eternity.
Listen to my pleas,
I’m begging on bended knees,
towards the light,
no matter how tempting
shadows may be.

Poetry is a
a lonely life
a frigid night
tonic for thirsty sailors
drowning in an ocean
from which we cannot drink
To our deserted island we go
while the world
casts us loners,
Let them judge
as they wine and dine
in crowded rooms
on cell patrol

Harry died in his bed, sad
But nobody knew.
Someone knocked on his door
After a week or two.
When there wasn’t an answer
Someone went away,
Just thought he was deaf
Or, gone out for the day.
Then a week or two later
The mail’s in the hall
But the postman’s too busy
To give him a call,
And the milkman stopped coming
A long time ago;
When there isn’t a sign...

I used to be happy
I used to smile
But I am broken
It's been this way for awhile
I used to dream big
I used to be strong
Life got in the way
And it didn't take long
Lying in bed
My heart is racing
My mind won't shut off
These thoughts that I'm facing
Maybe they're better off
Without the burden of me
I feel so lost and alone
I can sense th...

Why you do me so wrong
Why you shit on me all day long
U do me dirty like a damn tampon
Haven’t heard from you all day long
Look at the shit u be on
U do me like a damn peon
What type of love is this
Why you gotta put me thru this
Thursday 31st May 2018 1:53 pm
What if I fail
What if everything that I hope to accomplish
What if I really be on mtv
Would that change a “U don’t mean shit to me”
To you mean the most to me
Let me stop
Let me pause
I never did good
So I never got a round of applause
Always found myself behind bars
For not following the laws
It seems crazy I always wanted...
Thursday 31st May 2018 3:12 am
I wandered lonely in a crowd
Brushing up against shoulders
Colliding with legs
but feeling distant and alone
hearing no words of apology
only mutterings of annoyance.
I wondered lonely in a crowd
do we notice each other
or are too caught up in ourselves?
Minds a tangled mess of thoughts
A maze leading to who knows where
Losing our way again and again.
Saturday 26th May 2018 11:47 am
He made our argument physical again tonight
Every time I think it's the last
Leaving him isn't an option
Plus, where would I go?
My heart can't take the cruel words or pain
Eventually, I'll learn how to cope.
Thursday 1st March 2018 5:24 am
I Never said I was sad
Am just trying to be real
This reality is nothing mundane
I hide my problems well
What I feel is better than what have had
They say loneliness is pain
I say loneliness comes from being alone
After all it can be comforting
My reality is unhealthy but soft
Your reality is dramatic and boxed
I prefer a state of non-existence with lemon than constru...

Tere janey ke baad hawayein beyqaraar
Khushk aabshar , fizayein sogwaar
To suno meri udaas aankhon ka raaz
Kisi ki yadun me meri aahein girftaar
Ye itna parayapan achanak na guzrey
Tere paas aate hi bahein sharamsaar
Rotey kuch mei ne bhi mangha hai rab se
Pyase labu se meri duayein ashkbaar

Solitude is mysterious
Solitude is strange
It can feel bliss'd, but it can render
Every time, it can always range.
It's when time smites me wrong
Or I'm feeling depressed
I'd join a lonely room for company
And tell it how I was stressed.
But what if you can't stand it,
What if you're pining for just anyone?
Keep seeking; in a world founded on those who care,...

I don't feel worthy of this earth.
It's a bright and happy day today.
I feel a fraud amongst it all.
As kids and parents play.
Sandcastles, colourful buckets and plastic spades,
Happy laughter fills the air.
Desperate darkness clouds it.
There is no point, no joy, no end,
I am hollow and so void.
I smile and wave and look the part,
Each photo frames the day.
Behind the mask the c...

The more I go
The darker it gets
Doesn't matter what is my choice
It's always the wrong one
I missed all the tracks
But there is no survivor left in me
I wish I was the never ending story
That at least came to end.

Four-wall safe-box secure.
Heart beating duldrum to duldrum.
The World - Beyond my door: Danger.
Other-folk. Living other-life.
Of glee. Fun. Friends. Sociality.
One screen. Glitch. One portal-opening reality twist.
Unchecked at the door.
Unpermission-beg desperation-need self-denialled.
To Closest. Furthest.

Silenus In The Brewery Tap
light fights its way
across a peeling window frame
and crashes lazily
upon a dark wooden table
where a man sits
stooped by work and alcohol
so that he seems
to stare for guidance in a pint pot
that stands half consumed
while froth slides down its sides
street noise scrabbles
to overcome the slow whumpwhump of a ceiling fan...

I'm lying awake at 3am
Why am I never intoxicated with positivity?
Why aren't I a fountain of enthusiasm?
Why can't I see the euphemistic light in this unilluminated darkness?
I'm lying awake at 3am
All of my uncertainties are overwhelming
The formidable anxiety I've become acclimated with seeps in through open wounds
And yet I've learned to find tranquility in this res...

My greatest decision was to give my heart to nobody, but it resulted in an amazing loneliness. I created a safe haven. A comfortable place in my head, where words couldn't reach and prying eyes could never see. But with the gain of comfort, there came a sudden, unexpected loss of understanding.
I began to look for answers in places I had never dreamed existed, places that only exist in t...

I was not aware how weak I was,
Till I felt your voice,
The reaction I had to you
As my new favorite song.
I had no choice
After you I was going
To bad if where I was headed
How the minute my soul awakened
from a pit so far down
it be considered a ghost,
God need not help me then
for he knew I was long gone
already down on my knee's

He nods to one side
Gives in to a few minutes
Maybe half an hour’s worth of tiredness.
In his bungalow
Time is stood still
Mid afternoon melts in through the curtains
Through the half open window.
Outside impatient young mums
Scold their primary school children for wanting to go on the swings
When they just want to get back home
And plant them in front of the tv
Sunday 22nd May 2016 9:31 pm
Feelings that once were hidden
Are now expressed to you.
Days that once were stormy
Are now the brightest blue.
Times that once were lonely
Are now filled with pleasure.
All that once was mine alone
Are now things we both treasure.
Nights that once were cold
Are now comforting and warm.
Fears that once were very real
Are now gone with the storm.
A heart that once was broken
Tuesday 17th November 2015 12:40 pm
The crack of dawn, yet absent of light
Darker than the hours preceding
Only one could dread a new day
But it's a constant battle and endless fight
To rise from this dungeon
To enter this isolated Hell
The morning is slow, yet all too short
Lead weights on all limbs and eyes
No routine, but a mission
To begin each day, Only to distort
The true soul trapped inside
Tuesday 18th August 2015 4:09 am
In the calm of darkness
I find great peace
The whirring of my head begins to cease
For in my everyday
I so struggle with just being me
Speaking my wants doesn’t come easily
There is conflict
In every decision I make
Trying to act for everyone’s sake
Often I forget myself
In that moment I’m not important
As old beliefs still h...

There was a man who understood,
everything he thought he could,
so sure was he that all was clear,
he didn't make time for someone dear.
And when at last she'd packed her case,
he realized he was losing more than face,
but change was then much too late it seems.
for her heart was broken by shattered dreams.
Years then passed by in such long procession,
his own life floun...

'The Art of Being Lonely'
Loneliness is Ugly...
Loneliness is a world full of people
Yet still being alone
Loneliness is a room full of people
But never could be further away
Loneliness is finding it hard to say
“I am lonely”
Loneliness is not to be shared
Loneliness is the sharing of it...
But to still be lonely
Loneliness is in an over populated world
