A reply from Autumn for the autumn lover.

Dear autumn lover
I arrived like the autumn and left like the spring,
I filled your voilent charm with my silence of fall.
I arrived as a hope,
But you stood like the Pinus tree.
You don’t change but you change the seasons.
I tried to fill you with my darkness,
But you are the moon.
I filled you with my fire and I became cold.
I led you towards the fall so that you rise and break again.

Oh my autumn lover!

Miss me so that I can leave you again

A letter to Autumn

Dear autumn
You arrived like the spring
Filling my silence with your voilent charm,
You arrived as a false hope, like everytime
I hope you fill me with your darkness
So that I can find my moon,
Fill me with your fire
So that I can be cold,
Lead me towards the fall
So that I can rise again
Oh my Autumn
Leave me,
So that I can miss you again.
_Autumn lover

PS: hope you write me back soon.

Silence Echoes

The silence echoes around her face,

So loud the he could hear her.

A desert which held a sea in the past and tides hit love on the shores.

Her eyes searching and scratching the beauty in deception.

Masked in pretence the she ignores,

Is she lost in something?

Or she conceives what you want to conceive.

____BY  Forestwood

Happy endings without the beginnings.

Not sure if he should begin,
frightened about the endings.
He dipped his brush in the air filled with melancholy,
painting his chaos on her heart.
She followed the chaos.
its a labyrinth
that is what she thought
only frightened about the beginnings,
but they both were stuck in a maze
at different dead ends.

_Tafazul Mattoo

Post script: Difference between maze and labyrinth

A maze is a complex branching (multicursal) puzzle that includes choices of path and direction, may have multiple entrances and exits, and dead ends.

A labyrinth is unicursal i.e. has only a single, non-branching path, which leads to the center then back out the same way, with only one entry/exit point.

Nail in the coffin__ A poem.

“do you hate me? No , i just hate a relationship”

a sacrifice she made for her family and her career, that is what i thought.

how i couldn’t understand,

I wasn’t the one she would fight for.

maybe i understood but still i would live in the illusions,

comforting yourself like its a nightmare and soon you’re going to wake up.
you see, we just like to get blinded by these emotions.
we like to comfort ourselves with lies its like comforting yourself with cigarettes .

“she just hates the relationships, she cannot replace me”
“oh you poor soul, just watch me”
“a world, full of lies and hypocrites, i am so fed up of this world”

why are you sad and angry? you are free!”

“am i ? or am i like that old man from shawshank,
who killed himself after getting released from the prison?”
“we want to be free but we are addicted to the cage”

curse her if you want to set yourself free
a curse that is forever , a curse of being immortal in your poems.

do you hate me? No, i just hate a relationship, with you.
