still life

You and i


I can’t reach you

The doubts in your head

The sadness in your eyes

Dragging you

Away from me

The wounds in my heart

The tears in my eyes

Pulling me under

I can’t breathe

I can’t taste the salt on my face anymore

I can’t see the light

I can’t tell if that’s your hand

Looking for mine

If it’s just an illusion

As my lungs burst

And my heart


It’s true. You learn it the hard way, through tears before you sleep, through tears when you wake up, through tears when you stop to breathe, that sometimes love just aint enough.

I am going through a heartbreak, but I cannot write about happiness or joy..

You are not going through heartbreak but then how do you envisage the brittle heartache so well, as if you are drowning in it..

Take another shot of courage
Wonder why the right words never come
You just get numb
It's another tequila sunrise, this old world
Still looks the same,
Another frame...

You know where to find me? Anytime... day or night (sounds shady na? damn right it does!)
Love you.

And I loved the apt to your post..

AGG, i've been following your blog for some time now and you never fail to stir my emotions. Sometimes your words cheer me up, sometimes they leave me sad, but what they always do is make my heart feel alive again. I have a lot to thank you for.
Beautiful as these words are, am really hoping they are not heartfelt.

take care.

@ashley: thank you

@cloudcutter: i love you too. you should know that. some things are easy and have no explanation. : )

@anon: its cool. i hope you feel better soon. i hate saying those words, because they sound just like words when you're heartbroken. but i mean it.

@s: nobody has ever said something so nice to me. and i love the fact that i don't even know you. all i can say is thank you so much. it made me so happy: )

and ya, the words are heartfelt. but i'm ok. everything is magnified for me - love, pain, everything. i try and keep it balanced. but i think that's my nature.

thank you again : )

Nice. But tough. I'm sorry you had to feel this way to even write this (especially since you're infintelly more fond of writing about bodily functions instead :D )

Divya said...

Geez. Glaring typo there. Pliss to excuse.
