Innate Calling

It’s been a while
Since I lost my sanity
Over your insanity to immerse
Myself, to feel more alive
To breathe the scents of paper
To selfishly indulge myself
For the call I always have been waiting
For the time, I always wanted to come to you.
It’s been a while since I felt you in my every breath
And beating of my heart,
It’s been a while, enough to surface
My fear of losing you, completely
In the scandal of so called ‘growing up’.
Yes, it’s been a while
Since I forgot to feel what it feels like
Having nothing but you.
It’s been a while since I wanted nothing
But you and only you.

Hideous

She had a scar that runs deep
Ugly as it looked, the uglier story behind it.
She wanted to hide and world didn’t wish to see
Gross, scary and partly burnt face
The reason she was afraid to look at mirror
Hideous, hideous, hideous
“A thing of beautiful is a joy forever”
As John Keats echoed through the classic.
She looked last time at mirror
And made another scar on the wrist
A final scar, she needn’t be hideous anymore.
