Day 321: Love’s Nightmare

Why do I fall asleep when I think of you? Maybe because I know that love is just a remnant dream of you. © Manivillie Kanagasabapathy

Day 318: Fate

I envy the fated ones. Those who are sure of their way and path. Who let their dreams lay brightly in the sun, uncaring of the shadows that pass briefly by. (c) Manivillie Kanagasabapathy

Day 280: My Doubtful Half

Too long, you were the object that blocked my light. I gave you form, held tight with memory and coloured it opaque with stolen intentions. No longer, I refuse to live where the light can't find me. Strip away these layers of dust I let settle over my mind until all my barriers are transparent… Continue reading Day 280: My Doubtful Half

Day 215: Where I’m Meant To Be

On rocky purchases, with bended knees, try to ride the falling Earth. Catch my breath, only to be thrown again, soundless strikes of thunder before me.

Day 133: Blank (Dheepan)

Meet me in the space between reality and dreams. Hold me in that moment, so I can deliciously wait still in your arms. The seconds before I awake to the storms left by yesterday's actions.

Day 71: The Edge

Standing on the edge There are only two choices Hang by the edge Forever remaining On the precipice Between longing and fear Muscles atrophying Until all you do is fall Or Release the edge Let go of the fears Inhibitions ripped out As the body falls Old doubts buried By wings of will​ Until all… Continue reading Day 71: The Edge
