When I sit alone,
The lights dim out
Memories float by
The mist still makes me cry.
It has been so long
Your flight left
A new world called
I kept waiting.
Have you ever thought
I am still,
In the pain of separation.
Last wish to see
Baby, forever goodbye
You chose the right thing
At the cost of one last kiss.
Move far away after love, so forlorn
Gone, still the heart says no to it,
The vessel of wishes would keep on searching
Still I cannot make the ends meet.
Whenever I stand in front of you
Oh, I cannot speak my dreams
When I am away, I only wish for you.
Torn were all the accessories
Of my feelings hidden behind the futility
Time flowed countless, fairytales wiped away.
Still to get back again I pray.
Dreams are tied by kite strings
Turning musically some things said
Submissive this fancy
Not some pages from a story,
Still in dreams I wish, an entreaty.
What has sailed away should be forgiven
This lovely hellish enchant; but myself, I lose in her.
I feel so powerless, lost within myself
No, I cannot change a thing,
Even what I feel is left unexpressed.
You have been in touch
With your soul and so much more
But you don’t see a simple truth
That without you I am nothing else.
The moonlight catches on all the lies
We said we could live apart!
But I stare outside for a sign,
You look at your phone for a message to arrive.
Were we so different from each other when we met?
Or did we distance ourselves then
In fear of losing ourselves
And confusing what we left.
The burrows were empty there.
The winds blew all the time
Howled at any passers-by who tried to cross the field.
The dog sat blind under the pole.
And the sun burning everything for revenge.
What happens when this day ends?
The world for them will not change,
They will age and rot when time slips away.
The young girl looked steadily away
From her windows to the vast endlessness,
Her dog did not return.
The leaves never turned green again, the tree dried.
The winds carried sand into her eyes and made her cry. Her two teeth that had come up now were the only sign of aging,
Yet she was so spotless.
She did not know what time did. She did not care.
She had a song to sing.
She waited for the time when she could,
She needed to grow up.
Only thing she did not realise was time demanded a lot. It took away everything in the end.
She would sing but at the cost of being alone.
The road has been too old, the view still new
It is here that I sit patiently and await your footsteps.
Falling leaves, passing cars, a few eager glances thrown my way
They do not know why I would sit alone while others choose to move ahead.
All the ambitions are gone and everything finished,
I just have one question in my mind
Would you be coming over at this time,
Or do I have to come again another day?
The story should have ended long back.
It never started when we sat together for a cup of tea.
It did not even when we fought over the phone every day,
It did when you decided to move away and leave me.
Time did change the feeling, it made things bleak.
Without use why bother about a person who’s gone, my friends said,
I thought gone she might be, I still at the bus stop wait!
If only you had the heart to know,
The song that I did not sing tonight
Was the one I wrote for you.
In the end it was just a walk away
To start from here is all I could not do,
All you could do is stand and wait.
Even the sun faded and smoke hid
The circle of thoughts vanished
Playing games with relationship.
The phone call came a bit too late,
It was a day of forgiveness, of memories
This time you cannot come back to me.
* * * * * * * * * * * * *
She sent one line,
Never to write another time
The feeling departed
The story never started.
Why would it end now
When Spring was about to reach us.
I had thought it would not happen again
But in love that is the only real thing.
Pain, pain, and more pain to live
To bear through all that had to be.
She went far away South,
She had cut all the tying ropes.
That didn’t sever all the hopes,
Talks lasted even in the evening
Before the night could finally come.
What they didn’t know how the other felt,
One boy and a girl, we sadly lived.
Far away, and apart since,
The feeling that never died, left.
