For You

This is a collection of poems i've been writing since the start of my hiatus. Some are sloppy, and some i'm incredibly proud of. These take me from heartbreak, suffering and rock bottom; to healing, brushing off and starting out fresh- in no particular order.

I'm finally at a place where i've started to find peace in these experiences, and i've realised that once you become comfortable with that, you become less shy with sharing them out.

And that's why this collection is titled 'For You'; because to whoever comes by this and decides to read it, if you can relate- to whatever extent, it's for you. I hope you find yourself in these words, get lost in these words, and enjoy these words, just as I did.

Thank you.


20. My Side

You can look at me

and pretend everything is fine.

You can stay in the past

and you can live a lie.

But I can't anymore.


You can say that i've changed,

call me cold,

call me names,

let me feel your rage.

Call me what you like.

But I can't anymore.


We walk past each other like we are strangers.

We were the mantle-piece pictures

that have now faded.

Now, you can't bear to even 

look me in the eye,

and I can't bear to pretend that everything is fine.


You lost a person when 

I lost a friend.

You buried my number when

I mourned the end.

You tell your friends

you think i'm being cold,

while i'm still here,

holding on to letting go.

You have someone new 

to dedicate songs to,

while i'm here picking out 

words to give to you.


You can tell your friends to brand me

a liar, a bitch.

You can go on living that lie and 

pretend that we were nothing alike,

but you'll never know

what it's like

to be on the other side.
