I was fine #Poetry

I was fine #Poetry

I have been wondering lately,
why my thoughts aren’t serene,
why my mind lacks harmony,
why my words are void of ecstasy.

Then my inner peace whispered,
It is not so soothing in here,
with your heart’s broken pieces
piercing me non stop.
So, lets not pretend like
we are fine.
May be I was not fine.

Broken, Again

Broken, Again

Stranded in darkness
by the hands of warmth

Wounded heart
sank so deep

Colder and colder
Alone and broken

Foolish self
never learned the lesson

Hoping for love
ascended from the hurt

Walked into the garden
where colors mask agony

Sweet little lies
Swooned the vulnerable

Fell for a rose
smiled so beautifully

Anxiety rushed in
held it tight

Stung by its thorns
cried for help

Cried all alone
colder and colder

Scars to the deep
alone and broken, again.

Vicious cycle of hope
Crippled the innocent

Again and again
nightmares and flowers

Again and again
Fancied and abandoned

Again and again
love and despair

Again and again
alone and broken.

Impact

Impact

To know someone

Is to know their poetry.

Your emotions saturate my screen.

My empathy bursts at the seams.

I read your words and feel your pain

Sincere compassion is a strong quality;

A rarity in today’s society.

Broken

Broken

Tearing your heart open again and again just to feel something, anything other than … broken.

Endless Metaphors

Endless Metaphors

I am a bottomless ocean
Keep digging in
See what uncharted breadths I hold
I’m a new species of lonely
A new species of tired
I’m a new species of run down

I’m a brand new car with 300,000 miles on it
A newborn child that doesn’t scream when it cries
A kitten that doesn’t play with string

I’m a pretty broken thing

No expectations

No expectations

I never expected you to hurt me
I thought I was cutting off the lust
And the impractical
To feel something real

But I was never ever good enough to you.

I am broken

I am broken

I am broken, it is left to be scattered,
The few feelings that are left to go,
There are few breaths that are yet to come,
Death asks every day standing at my head
Come brother, what is left to see now.

I will take them off the pages sometime

I will take them off the pages sometime

I think I’ll take them off the pages sometime.
Let me remember all the alphabets that came out of her mouth sometime.
What would be such a compulsion that we do not remember them.
I think I will send a gift and remind myself sometime.
I think I’ll take them off the pages sometime.

Nothing to see here

Nothing to see here

Believing becomes a fairy tale  
Every opinion is up for sale
Hiding memories of a broken home
I only see myself alone
Never knowing if I’ll be alright
Demons calling for me every night

Many sins are buried deep within
Years of sorrow settle in

Manipulating my reality  
Anything is better than what I see  
Severed many ties to good for me
Killed everything I tried to be

I no longer feel a thing
Sadness is the song I sing

Do not try to reach me anymore
Empty eyes forever more
Apathy becomes my new best friend  
Trust is just a means to an end
Heed the words, don’t let me in.

Betrayal Of The Heart

Betrayal Of The Heart

You shattered my hopes and dreams

in mere moments…

This leaving me without

any reason is what you want…

And makes you happy,

You were my one, my only true love.



Because I love you, I will

give up my one chance at happiness for you,

as I would have did anything for you.



You never let me say…Goodbye, or was it that day, I left to go home,

was to be my last memories of you…



My heart is broken and empty

and the best part of me and my soul,

is gone forever with you.

All I have left is questions

as my tears are gone, thus

too a part of my will to live.



I live not to love again,

You will be the only one ever for me.

But, to endure and suffer

through this memory of you, never to forget.



As you forgot your promises to me,

saying you truly loved me.

Yet, doesn’t true love never fail?



I don’t know where I go from here,

how to believe from thinking, our children to be,

now that will never be…



To a discarded piece of trash

that you feel no human decency too.

Only a complete betrayal of the heart.

My Love Story

My Love Story

You were not a weather-fend
Still, I’ve followed your course
Then, we reached a dead-end
Where all feelings got hoarse

Our Love, is done and dusted

Our Love, is done and dusted

I burnt the Memories, U gave Me.
I burnt your Love Letters Too.
Your Tears won’t ever, Cry for Me.
Tell Me…..What else must I Do?
I threw the Souvenirs, U gave Me.
I hardly ever take, your Name.
Our Love is done and Dusted.
As it put us both, to Shame.
Most of the Time, I keep Thinking.
Why not find, somebody New?
A Woman who Glows, like Moonlight
and is fresh, as the Morning Dew.
Once Her Eyes, find Me.
I shall write, My Love Story Again.
In the Arms of My Angel,
U won’t find, My Tears weep Again.

Pieces

Pieces

I spent years trying to pick up
The pieces of a puzzle
That would never feel complete
And when I got close
To her completion
Death was there
To congratulate me

And after her passing
People continued to feel
Like problems and projects
Never getting too close
But somehow loving so much
Only to discard them
Like broken objects

And with you I found solace
In the illusion of completeness
Maybe I wouldn’t need to
Try so hard to bring happiness
To a man with little grievances

But much like my past
I found myself splitting
Apart at the seams
In order to love someone
Who needed me to put together
All of their broken dreams

©VishalDutia

Running Tears

Running Tears

I read all your Poems,
U wrote to Me years Ago.
Reading them……My Tears,
began to Show.
My running Tears,
now have no place to Go.
So I’m holding them as Souvenirs,
for U……each time they Flow.

Loneliness

Loneliness

At Nights, I take My Loneliness
and Add to it, a Tear or Two.
Throw in some Emptiness.
Mix them up, till I’m Blue.
Keep them under Cover.
Near to My Broken Dreams.
Then sail My Boat of Sorrow,
on Waves of the Silver Streams.
I could always feel it happening,
when Loneliness was Around.
My Feet which were once steady,
kept sinking in the Ground.

Poem of Tears

Poem of Tears

I drown My Sorrows,
in My Poem of Tears
and paint Golden Memories,
We had over the Years.
Her Broken Promises,
haunt this Heart of Mine.
But My Love for Her,
can be read on every Line.

A Broken Heart

A Broken Heart

When a Heart in Love gets Broken,
it’s pieces get scattered Around.
Tears keep falling Drop by Drop,
without a Word or Sound.
Diamonds are stones that Sparkle,
When U polish them all the More.
A Broken Heart becomes a bit Stronger,
When Love touches their Feet or Shore.
Black loves, the Sound of Silence.
White shines, when it is Night.
A Heart that’s Broken has Memories.
But their Love, is never in Sight.
As Moonlight shines on their windowsill,
A Broken Heart is brought back to Life.
But then old Memories, begin to creep in
and Dreams, are stabbed by a Knife.

Deep In My Bones

Deep In My Bones

I know you’re there.
Deep in my bones,
I can feel you.

You’re a written scripture,
On the ancient DNA,
Of my body of flesh, bones,
And impermanence.
It permeates,
Into any existence,
Where you and I,
Have hearts,
That beat.

I see now,
That I had to have it all,
Taken away.
Peeled back.
Removed.
So that all that was left,
Was me.

I never needed you.

You have an outdated version
Of me in your head.
And that’s fine.
But I can’t lie,
I’m pretty heartbroken,
That you’d leave me behind,
This time.

I thought you understood.
I guess…
I thought I knew you better.

I don’t want to keep you.
I don’t have a reason to.
Time and time again,
Your the constant,
That I always knew.
That simple kind of love,
That I never had to try to do.

But my trust in this truth…
This time – I handed you.

Of all the things I’ve had to let go,
You were the last.
And when you turned your back,
It was clear –
There really isn’t,
Anyone,
To trust here.

And I don’t mean that,
In some sad, bitter way.
I mean it to say…
I trust no one but me,
And what a beautiful scene.

My crystalline heart is,
No longer in hands that,
Bring me to places,
Too far from myself.

I am the only one that holds me.
This is how I’m meant to be.
More sure than I’ve ever been.
I’ve never felt more free.

But it’s a funny thing,
That even though,
you can’t be seen…

I can still feel you.

Deep in my bones.

Love sickness

Love sickness

Doctor don’t
bother
diagnosing me
because I already
know
that I’ve caught
an acute case
of lovesickness
for a girl
who can’t
be mine,
and the only
medicine
that’ll cure me
is heartbreak.

Shattered

Shattered

Words cannot express the way I feel
So empty and lost in space
My heart shattered in a million pieces
As tears run down my face

The Hurting Lingers

The Hurting Lingers

Above any thoughts of infidelity
Our love I thought was strong
But in your eyes I see your quilt
And I realize that I was wrong

You threw it away like it was trash
A bond that never should have fallen apart
But carelessly and thoughtlessly
You had no regard for my fragile heart

Why is love so hard to find yet so easy to
Lose and cause so much pain
Love’s bliss lives in the warmth Of Sunshine
Yet the heartache lives in the rain

As the tears fall from my eyes
I see the promise of love turn to rust
This heart of mine bleeds and in
Love never again will it trust

Forever when I reminisce I’ll see
Love as it slips through my fingers
Forced to live with a broken heart
As The Hurting Lingers

Edge of the Void

Edge of the Void

White noise.

Static wasteland.

Barren desert.

Soulless emptiness.

Broken loneliness.

Endless nothingness.

Black hole.

Aimless wandering.

Just another day in my head.

Just because I still
dream about you, that does not

Dead and Gone #Poetry

Dead and Gone #Poetry

A tear falls from her eye
Thoughts racing in her mind
Pleading to the sky for mercy
Her lovers now passed on
He taught her to be strong
Now she only drinks her wine
when she is thirsty
This helps to ease her pain
For the feelings that remain
A broken heart is still worthy of a mending

So strange
before i was meant to be your life partner
and now you flip the emotions
and I existed only in your poems
like some content to experment
with metaphors and emotions.

Forever not mine

Forever not mine

I will keep you close
but never say a word
I will lose myself
to find you in this world

You won’t reach me
not even search for me
You won’t teach me
how happy I should be

I lost you once
I’m losing you again.

a pitiful eternity.

Damaged

Damaged

I want to tell you
What’s in my head
This entire other world
The constant droning of voices
The screaming and thrashing within

But if I did
If I did…

You’d never look at me the same
I’d be broken to you
Damaged

I know that I am…
But I just…
I can’t let you see me like that

I’m at a loss

I’m at a loss

As I lay awake last night
Contemplating my life
I felt it in my heart
It hit me as sharply as a knife

I love you

And I know you already know
But I’ve only come to realize how much I truly do
I love you so much, That I don’t know what to do
Don’t know what to do with this love for you

It’s burning my soul
With its sheer amount and intensity
I am legitimately at a loss
at what to do with this density

Do I wrap it up and tuck it away?
Or do I allow it to have its way
Would I scare you off if I told you this?
Or would you give a gentle kiss

Would you want to escape from it?
Take your chance to split
Or would you be filled with happiness?
Feel the pure and raw tenderness

It scares me but I know
My self-awareness is rather slow
But now that I know what I know
It’s hard not to show

I love you
I love you so much

Though what to do with this overflowing heart
I haven’t the slightest clue.

Have you seen me?

Have you seen me?

You might’ve seen me walking along the road
Long golden curls, headed for home

Soft blue dress, with little orange flowers
Hopping in puddles from April’s rain showers

Or you might’ve seen my face plastered all over town
Missing child posters “NOT BEEN FOUND”

Amber alerts, sirens blare
No one really knew me, but suddenly they all care

Maybe I’m locked in a basement, or wrapped up in a sheet
But you came to your conclusion when you found a retainer full of teeth

Flowers growing in the cracks in the ground
No one heard my screams, because I didn’t make a sound

Where is she? Where is she? Is there any more? I’m just right above you, under this dirt floor

Have you seen me? Can you hear me? I’ve been scratching for days
He told me that he loved me, but I didn’t want to play

My dress is buried in the mud, as are my locks of hair
And if you look a little closer, you’ll find some child bones growing there

He tasted my pigtails every day, suckled all the sweetness
Told me they tasted just like cotton candy peaches

I tried to get away, I tried and tried but to no avail
He knew I was a liar, when I said I wasn’t a tattle tale

I dreamt of mommy’s kisses when she would tuck me in my bed
It’s always the big girl thing to do, instead of cry and beg

I saw little stars dancing around my head
As his grip squeezed tighter around my little neck

He buried me fairly softly, gave me a kiss goodnight
Wrapped me up in plastic bags and turned out all the lights

The earth is my pillow and my room is the sky
Don’t ask any questions because he won’t say why

Have you seen me? I think it was too late
You did not get to see me, until I met my fate.

TRIGGER WARNING: this was inspired by a very tragic kidnapping case that I saw on the news.
Broken Reflection

Broken Reflection

Dont give me your hope
Dont give me your name
Give me your love
Then drown me in shame
Dont give me a smile
Dont give me a wink
Give me your mind
To insult how I think
Dont give me the truth
If the truth is a lie
Dont give me your heart
If youre meant to die
All this time in broken reflection
All this time a lonely rejection
Broken

Broken

Nothing mends a broken soul
The feeling of giving up
and losing all goals
The constant fear of f*ckingup
and a heart with a gaping hole.

Words about regret
Words about hatred
Words about us
Words about wiping out our past
Words about your new love

It’s not only sticks & stones that break me!

Love Lost

Sometimes I wonder
who is the loser in love.

The one breaking away
or the one left broken.

Quote

Broken and Formed #Poetry

The thing that shapes us
Is the thing that breaks us

The pain of the past
Brings joy that will last

From a fire
That can incinerate
Comes metal
With strength as a trait

Just remember it may hurt now, but it will pay off later.
