Guest post: Two poems by Vulnerable Veil

1. A broken heart

I know you have held me tight from the moment I needed the most
But I shall crash if you take those hands off

There is a hole in my heart which is filled by your love
If you take it out then I may not survive

How lucky I feel to have you in my life
But a fear keeps haunting me that we may fall apart

No reasons I shall have to continue this life
And I may just give up if you walk away from me

A depressing poem that pours its heart out

A Rainy Day

A familiar fragrance surrounds Sneha's home. She doesn't want to get up from her bed and go to school but a sudden thundering awakes her.

Poem: There was a time

There was a time When you sought true questions Not the right answers As you do now
There was a time When your feet kissed untamed grass Not the glazing tiles As they do now
There was a time When we talked to each other Not through this intelligent sand As we do now
There was a time When the words you are reading Were not just a poem As it is now
