Life After Death.

Okay. Let’s get personal. I attempted suicide on October 22, 2011 at the age of 13. It was the middle of fall. Spots of orange, red, yellow, and green cover cracks in pavement. The sky is a distasteful grey, one that forces you to feel nothing. My cousins are over; they watch movies in the basement…

Combined.

Surges of light Radiate from her skin. For his eyes, saw past the hidden pain. Too soon realize She was a part of him. Two people,   in one skin.   Thank you for stopping by! I haven’t been posting a lot of poems on my blog recently as most of them have been going…

Gratitude.

What is the first thing you do when you wake up? Do you scroll through your phone? Hit the snooze button? Dash to the washroom? Or maybe you just glare at the ceiling for a couple of minutes. I do the same. But there is a crucial thing that many forget to do. From the…

People.

People. They surround us. They influence us. They love us. Sometimes, they even break us. But people, are unavoidable. It doesn’t matter how much you claim to be an introvert.  You can never live without people. We need people. People need us. I am sitting in a cafe and there aren’t much people here. However,…

Seeing is Believing.

What is your ultimate dream? Now close your eyes, and invasion it. Imagine yourself living your dream. Feel it. Smell it.

Hostage.

Dimmed light bulbs, Blood stains drip On off-white walls Shocked by your grip   That holds me hostage Unable to escape Tied in bondage Lips covered in tape   You suffocate me Beneath unclear water Immersed completely As if this heart, does not matter. I once heard a break up, is like getting out of…

Mistrust.

I was hurt Now I feel alive skin moulded by dirt  I am a goddess in disguise   Hear my voice Watch  my  stride You   had  a   choice  But   still,  you    hide   Beneath your lies Unforgivable   trust My  tears  have  dried  Kiss  these  lips  goodbye   For this relationship,…

City.

Bright lights, concrete jungle This is what I live for Fast paced, unending hustle I couldn’t ask for more   Take me away Into the ever changing city  For where I’d stay Content completely. “I want to wake up in a city that never sleeps.” – Frank Sinatra     Pinterest Photo ©aishaadamspoetry

Naked In Winter.

Blankets of snow cover green pastures just so we know time moves faster, when we roam in deep slumber oblivious of whom can watch us in wonder.   Yet,   Time moves slow like sharp winter winds with painful blows that twist and spins, as if bearing no clothes except our bare skin and bodies…
