To Let It Go

It is melancholic how hilarious the tricks of heart are, It feels wounded, splintered, wrecked. And one fine day, it just lets it go.

You Are Loved

Defeat doesn’t become you, my love; Your eyes- two bleak orbs of despair, “Your life doesn’t need my wretched essence”, you whisper, And I know you’ve forgotten what our love truly does mean.
