• Onslaught
    The letdowns come one after another
    And at times together
    As if one will not hurt enough.
    And the tears
    The tears keep falling
    Like they are your silent screams.
    The one who set this in motion
    You trusted him
    You know you’ll never forgive. 
  • Surrender
    It was a promise
    You pinned your hopes on
    It was a future
    You knew you owned.
    But it doesn’t happen
    Like it’s supposed to
    It came crashing down
    Like a brick on you.
    So for self-respect
    You refuse to just take it
    And for self-preservation
    You choose to quit.
  • Chance Encounter

    The surge of feelings
    At the sight of you
    Swirled around me
    Like a personal tornado.

    We are long over
    Our past buried deep
    But when our eyes meet
    They remember to weep.
  • Fickle
    Don’t you dare come near me
    When all you are is a tease 
    You play with my emotions
    When your love is a lease. 
    Why must you chase my affection
    Then promptly leave me out cold
    You raise glass walls between us
    Now that my heart to you is sold. 
  • Doctor
    I see you look at them
    From a distance
    For this is a time
    When love means
    Staying away
    Letting the eyes speak
    And the hands touch
    Through the wind.
    You heal the wounded
    Yet the universe
    Thinks its you
    Who owes it
    Making you pay
    With hugs of loved ones
    And at its most cruel
    Your life.

    Dedicated to a neonatologist who recently passed away from the virus, leaving a family with young kids behind. I didn’t personally know her but she left an indelible mark of courage, sacrifice, love.
