Let me listen to a few more of your untuned songs
Songs so offbeat, so much out of tune
Yet words i can trust and relate in your voice.
Tell me more about the dreams and ambitions
That you carry in this beautiful heart of yours.
And talk about books, music, love and life!
Let a few more days be gone and Watch with me the spring flowers bloom
Let a few more nights fall into the madness of our love
As we lay under the stars and the moon…
Let my mind take in the moments spent with you, slowly,
And store them safe in its deepest corners…
Let my heart slow down and calm itself before you go away.
Let me embrace you till I breath again into a new life
Let me leave memories as intense as you left me with
Memories that left me craving for more.
***for every person who pushed her limits to love someone who never deserved her love***
I realise now that
The world knew it better
When it told me
Not to fall in love with you.
But may be what it didn’t know
I had already fallen for you…
The world saw it better
How you used to
Leave me crying every night
And out, in the biting cold
Stretching me in and out
As if from a black hole…
The world heard it better
The curses and sarcasms that
You used to shoot at me
My cries and pleadings
Which never sufficed to
Melt your tough heart
But what it didn’t hear were
My silent cries
In dark rooms of my heart;
The louder wailings
In deepest corners of my mind.
The world understood it better
The pain I used to be in
After each one of your beatings.
How the sadist part of you
Used to love whipping and ripping.
But what it never understood was
My mental pain was much greater.
And why and how I used to bear it all
All in the name of love.
The world saw it better
Yes, it surely did
The wounds that you left me
After each fight we had.
But what it didn’t see was
The greater war I used to fight
Everyday inside my heart.
No, it wasn’t the world that saw it better
It was me who was blind…

“You have something I get attracted to.
I can see a light in you!
A light so magical, so full of life
Fills me with joy and pleasure…
Pleasure of an essence, joy of a narcotic!”
“Stay away from me!
For that blazing thing is an Inferno you see.
It burns inside me day and night
Blinding naive eyes like yours”
“I want to be burnt in that Inferno
For what you are is what I want to know
It’s worth knowing
Why and how that Inferno exists in you;
Your fire is pure and pious
I want to stay in the light you contain
For I know I’ll find my nirvana there
As does a moth
Circling around the light it wants
For its life
Knowing it’ll be burnt one day!”
“My dear, you seek a dangerous light
Don’t be a moth, don’t you fight
For something so dicey
Or you will burn yourself to death
Chasing the light that can never be yours
Rather be a firefly,
To twinkle like stars on wet grasses
To decorate the garden of a monsoon wedding…
To be the sparkles of joy for a mid night lullaby
To be light of wisdom for an angelic being
Or to illuminate the path of lost travellers…
Do not seek a light because it’ll only hurt
Be the light that you seek”

Not a long time it has been
That I woke up to your face
For the first time.
When I was but a teen.
Inside me was a soul so new,
Not new from birth but from rebirth,
Baptised by the morning dew
So as to know it’s worldly worth!
I looked outside, at the lush lawn
Instead saw myself on the window
Sky looked different that dawn
And so did I in a beautiful way…
You started playing and there i went
Dancing all over my room,
Enthralled by, the notes it blent.
The melody being my magic broom.
This is the way it has been
Since our very first love day
Yet ennui has no place to live.
Please be here,
Please stay this way!
