A broken girl once came across a flawed boy
Two old souls, the way universe had written
She broke through him, gave him a purpose
Reborn and ascended; if his past was unwritten
Making all his days, brighter with her smile,
As if the strength of the sun depended upon it
How can imperfection be loved he thought
How can her love fill his emptiness, bit by bit
But it wasn’t just love, he was her obsession
And like all obsessions, hers came to an end
It’s always the broken who try to fix the others
And they leave, when there isn’t more to mend
One soul filled with despair and remorse;
A beautiful girl, with her dreams broken
Another soul, shattered yet lighthearted;
A boy in love, with his outright devotion.
He sang to her soul his song of freedom,
She craved for him, with her demons dancing
Their love was pristine, and unconditional
‘Twas hurting them both, yet complementing.
She was the phoenix and he was the iron,
But he became steel due to her wild flare
And when she rose from her ashes, anew
She was like wind; everywhere and nowhere.
Child of shadows, once born of flesh
Un-winged, amidst fear and agony
‘Fraid of the lurking and yet to come
Oblivious, to the code of chivalry.
Voids in his desire were unveiled, as
Love taught him; death with dignity.
In desire to be and in wanting to live
His wretched soul began to purge,
As he wept at the beauty of night
He commenced to sing his own dirge,
Then born again of fire; ascended,
Like Phoenix must burn to emerge.
A mind in a nocturnal reverie,
The ominous hour ere sunrise
Perpetual variance in notes
A pleasant melody, full of lies
Wretched soul, sleep deprived
Exhaustion of the rheumy eyes
Disentangling the ambivalence,
Hoping for an utter liberation
Perhaps being accustomed to it,
Spurning the needed salvation
The perks of a conflicted soul,
Living by perennial indecisions.
Frail heart, now fragmented
Divested of complacency
Myriad endeavors, thus futile
Subjected to sheer vagrancy.
Replete with utter remorse
But deprived of lamentation
Seeking a heart to reside in
Delving for profound affection.
Despair in this waning light,
Flames of soul no longer ignite
Pushing into another night
Sleepless, helpless, starry night.
As his darkest night ended,
He found her in the rays of sun
Cherished the utmost delight
Felt fortunate, survived the stun.
Stared into her darting eyes
Perplexed by her elegancy,
Questioned her charming smile
Lost himself in her delicacy.
She casted a spell on his soul
As the love’s web was spun,
And holds the key to his heart
Oblivious to what she’s done.
The cursed adolescent, godforsaken
Dwelling through the utter desolation
Absence of landscape, flora and fauna
Kindling the sand, the scorching sun
Persistent starvation, dehydrated
Fading life-force, obliterating
Wandering the barrens, little one
Seeking the endless mirages, hoping
Feeding on the pernicious cacti
Searching for a sprightful borehole
Impelling into the waning sunlight
Praying for his unfortunate soul
