Sinking by Anu Shah | Words Can Heal

I am sinking Low, low, and deep I hear her voice and I try to peep But I am sinking  from where I can't come back I wanted to tell her, don't be afraid I will rise again She believes in phoenix but she is scared Our eyes met and we both saw the pain we endured I saw her through  the slits of my eyes and I told her this is just my reverie which I'll wake up from is my promise Now she smiles at me  holding me with a grip, Grip with promise of  not letting me go She found her phoenix her own phoenix

Face of time | Words Can Heal

Accidentally I saw today Through the open balcony door Rain drops trickling from the roof On the shivering faded neem leaves Streams of water, as white as milk Pouring for hours from the grey skies And then I noticed a strange sight A pitch-black crow, sitting alone on rooftop Completely soaked, yet staring in the void As if seeing the face of time
