i’m a rocking boat ⛵️

~Neha Lekhak

So I'm this sailboat
that departed from the port
shoving away in its own stifle
no one to pull it towards the shore
no one having to drive the force
so i'm this rocking boat
that would wave away to unknown lands
go uninvited to places
coz now I finally believe
a random
moment feels
more like home
than days of an
unempathetic kinship.

Yours

~Aishani

You saw only the smile, not the storm hidden in my eyes
Because you needed happiness, not turbulent skies.

You heard only the laughter, not the cries of pain
Because you wanted perfection, you tightened the chain.

You felt only the cold skin, not the relief at last;
Because you had finally lost the control you'd amassed...
