Late Night Poetry, Part III




City lights under the clear night sky
and the twinkle in your eyes;
tell me,
what more can one ask for?



Restricted words


“Across from me,
she is so beautiful
even in the dimmest of lights.
Her smile,
too precious to be caught
by the lens of the camera,
is a privilege
to be photographed
in my memory.”


– 29/7/2015, “Words that are far too beautiful to be confined in dreams.”


Late Night Poetry, Part II


A hundred ways
was used to say
‘I love you’,
if only you’d realise
and see it like I do.


– 7/7/2015, “It’s more than the three little words.”


Late Night Poetry, Part I


I’ll chase the morning light
in my deep slumber,
as I surrender
into the haunting darkness
at this waking hour.


– 5/7/2015, “You’re always awake at the oddest hours of the day; something must be keeping you up.”


Lost Tracks, part II

(Well whad’ya know? A sequel to Lost Tracks happened. Bam.)


The decision to take a drive
made me leave my pride,
let the vulnerability seep through,
as I was led down the road
that my heart used to call home.

– 27/6/2015, “All it took was abandoned thoughts and pent-up suffocation.”


Starlight Musings 2.0

Late night / early morning musing at its best.

(Okay more studying less excuses ugh)


Fight or Flight

Timing will never be right
and the stars will never align.
Take this chance with me,
for I’d break every clock tonight
and shut every star from its sublime beauty.


– 9/6/2015, “Would you run the risk with me?”.



I let myself stumble back,
into the colossal mess
that I swore to leave behind.
Just this once,
to succumb into the familiar emptiness
as the rays of the sun
peek from the horizon,
reminding me that the void
is still the reason why
I can’t get out of bed
on most mornings.


– 29/5/2015, “I have had better days, and I had worse.”



All I am left to do
is to collect the dust
among the stars,
salvaging whatever
that is left
of this supernova.


Storm Warning

You’re the storm
that the weather forecast
warned about over the news,
but I chose to brave
the thundery skies
and set sail anyway.
