Fallen Nails


home sketch

Sittin’ on a bench.

People goin’ by.

Abandoned inside.

An empty smile

on my lips.

Pain hiding

behind fake quiet.

Memories muddled

in misery.

Miserable silence

suffocating me.

Distress And Suffering

A muffled scream



People goin’ by.

Blind the lot of ’em.

Blind to lonely tears.

My tears!





Raining tears

Useless emotion

shoved aside.

How did I get here?

Here, lost beside you.

Where do I go?

Can someone

answer me –


Can’t you hear me?

Can’t you see me

between the tears?

I’m right here.

Sittin’ on a bench

as you go by.

Abandoned inside.

Women eye, close-up

This is the second poem inspired by a beautiful woman whose strength and courage inspire me daily ๐Ÿ’œ
