I stopped living
I’m merely existing
For the sake of life
Life with no meaning

I find myself dreaming
Always and everywhere
Of a happy age
Of no sadness

All I want is peace
This need is killing me
Stabbing my heart
Every single second

I don’t fear the great unknown
Not anymore, you see
For I have seen it all here
Life has won over me

I abandoned hope down there
Along with my love
My heart can’t take it anymore
This pain is hard to ignore

My sudden breaths save me
For I believe it will help me
To discover what’s beyond
This living nightmare

Think twice when I’m there
For I’m not here forever more
My love is your love
And we’ll never be alone


What is a life with no satisfaction?
What is your happiness? There might not be answers to such questions but do what your heart tells in the right moment with no regrets.

‘Suddenly’ was written under the supervision of my introspective thoughts. Thinking of peace in all honesty. It tells you directly the thoughts of an irritated troubadour, the protagonist. All he wants is peace. Nothing more.

I hope it is everything you wanted and more.

Thank you,

Words are only words. 

They say that the pen is mightier than the sword. 
They believe that words have changed destinies. 
They agree that words have settled the many. 
They resolve that the written holds superior. 

A word can hold for a long time. 
It can root itself deep into the grounds of your reveries. 
The amazing mind never forgets it. 
It remains latent. 

Words can hurt and can flatter. 
Their bane existence is questioned. 
A life with no words is a life with no meaning. 
The confusion prevailing would disrupt society for we know. 

History has been witness to the rise and fall. 
For which words were held merely responsible. 
Opinions have varied and have changed. 
But, the words… they remain the same.



‘Words’ is a universal truth. 

The idea behind the poem is very vague to me but a conversation with a friend fueled it. The blatant idea is that words cannot be taken back. This free-verse was written very openly by me and very quickly. I hope you enjoy!


Thank you,
