Day 365: Unbreakable Ties

We are together in every moment, by my side, you may not stay, the heart does not see any distance, nor any debts to repay. Bound not rules of obligation, but strands formed from love and memories, and then further fortified by passion, a rope built with shared stories. Pull the cord as far as… Continue reading Day 365: Unbreakable Ties

Day 338: Multiplicative

They say it takes you 7 times as long as you knew someone to completely forget them. I still know you in memories and moments, though you are not beside me. So 700 years after I pass, I shall finally forget all about you. © Manivillie Kanagasabapathy

Day 248: The Undefinable (Sandra)

When silence held my tongue, you undid the stitches that woven across my lips. As I tried to crack open, windows in trapped rooms, I had built around myself, you reminded me that I was already outside. I imagine you like the wind, catching us up in your current, but you quickly become the sun,… Continue reading Day 248: The Undefinable (Sandra)

Day 161: Friendship in Rhyme (Wendy)

She loves prose in rhyme, my best partner in crime. A world traveller, an intellectual wanderer, she challenges every notion questioning your blind devotion. An unexpected friendship did arise, in gilded halls meant to make us wise. Thirteen years later, still going strong, even though we can both be a bit, headstrong. Through the perils… Continue reading Day 161: Friendship in Rhyme (Wendy)

Day 105: Ode to Friendship

My dear friend, When did I last see you, A year, a month, a week, a day, a moment ago, Or are you still by my side. When was the last time I told you, You make laugh, think, fight and sometimes cry. But when you put your hands around me, Or when you call… Continue reading Day 105: Ode to Friendship

Day 52: Night With The Squad

Open bottles and Karaoke bars, Showing our mantle as rock stars, Singing for the right to gloat While trying to hit that high C note, Missing the pained looks from afar. © Manivillie Kanagasabapathy
