‘Two sides to a coin’
Let me fall asleep to the sound of my heartache.
Brought it upon self,
You still the best mistake.
So here’s my letter to you
Ironically it’s something you will never go through.
If I could, I would
I would turn back the hands of time
I can’t! Even for a dime
I just hurts, undoing every single knitted moment I had with you.
Who am I to just come and uproot such a beautiful pair?
Except, that’s what you did
You loved unconditionally
Made me feel alive, revived, deprived from free will
I had no choice but to love
To love love what wasn’t mine.

About the Artist:
“Art to me is about the only thing left in this world that no one can take away from us. It’s there in sadness, in happiness, in shame, literally in every aspect of our lives. It is the most common language but yet many are still deaf towards it. Art to me is love. Love casts out all fear and the capability of being able to fully express yourself despite what some may think or say is the true essence of self love.
My poetry or spoken word pieces are my ways of expressing the inner man enclosed by the judgement of the one on the outside. My poetry is freedom!”
