An off day

My heart is extra sensitive today

To the slightest stimuli that shake it to its core

Hearing you say baba in your sleep

Knowing thats just something you’ll have to grow up without

Seeing them crave my stability

Knowing thats just something they’ll have to leave it to time

Ode to my husband

This is the end, my dear

Of you and me together as we

I don’t know if you even felt that about me

I am protesting now, see. Would you have that from me?

I wish you were a better man

I wish you were a better husband

I wish you were a better father

I wish you were all those things

Before it was too late

But even if you couldn’t be all of those

Could you not be a good human being atleast?

They say love can move mountains

Was my love not enough?

Were we ever in love?

Did we even have a marriage?

Maybe it was all an ugly display

That has turned into ruin now

Do I laugh or cry?

At this deliverance and solitude.
