The Vow

I write, in the name of my beloved
The one who I found on an open knoll

Whose attention caused dire consequences
Reigniting asleep flames of my soul

I speak of what saves, yet has destroyed me
I speak of my unparalleled devotion

I speak of the sole purpose of this life
I speak of a misunderstood notion

I have much recognized your decision
And hold it in deference to my rue

You pursue the unrequited for one
And I pursue the unrequited for you

Lest you become weary along the way
Just know that I will forever seek you

So I make a promise to be your home;
Vow, to which I shall ever remain true

Rediscovery

We all find someone to lose ourselves in
And thus we lose fragments of us in them

Then they leave us and take our pieces too
So we search for lost parts, our lives; glum

And I’d lost so many bits over time,
I didn’t remember who I used to be

I had lost too much to lose anymore
Even cosmos wanted me to find me

Hence, you came to make me rediscover
As, in you, somehow, I couldn’t lose me

I only saw a perfect me in you, and
The more I loved you the more I found me

Burned with Desire

Ever since I became a proponent,
I have but lost my only argument

There is something new I now long for
A desire, however, impertinent

To ask you, if my efforts weren’t enough?
Or was my love overwhelming for you?

Or was I erroneous to stare with my soul?
Or was it darkness I bore that scared you?

But the answers to these will be futile
As I’d have to forget you, regardless

I’ve adjourned a case in your name ere
And I close another to end this mess

My love for you enriches day by day
It is but a truth of this life, and thus;

Sadly, we love the people the most,
Especially when they do not want us

The Resignation

Argument of you and love has progressed
A reason for this case has been devised

The cause is your mystical, warm aura
The effect is so compelling yet disguised

I feel as if I’m home in your presence
If this world is not all cruel and selfish

I feel as if the time has held its breath
If this inner chasm is being replenished

And I have seen my sadness in your eyes
The windows to darkness you’ve held inside

Our driven souls still long for something
Striving to not yield our crowning pride

I’ve only had a few moments with you
But it feels like I’ve known you forever

Reckon it’s true what’s said about old souls
They can, indeed, recognize each other

Now if you realise this too, do not come
For I dwell in a place; there’s no return

I wish you to be content and at peace
As time’s come for this case to be adjourned

The Pacifist

Why does the inner-self feel sated?
Why is there no void anymore?

The ambivalence is untangled,
I have no time for love anymore

The work has won all my attention
Even when it costs me happiness

Life can either be happy or full;
And work ensures a certain fullness

Unrequited love made me happy;
So perhaps, I’m a mere masochist

Love before, now work as punishment
Though in dire need of a pacifist.

The Epiphany

Why shall I speak of the damage of love?
When it rejuvenates me just as much

In love, people happen to say too much,
But for me, words do not work as my crutch

I reminisce the time I fell in love,
As my remaining days go passing by

I’ve realised the only love I now feel
The unrequited as the end draws nigh

But what was so unusual about you?
An epiphany unveiled at one sunrise:

In darkness ere, I had craved for light
Yet stars were situated in your eyes

It was in the moment I gazed upon
A face fashioned by the hands of nature

There isn’t much left to my regret now,
As lost moments cannot be recaptured

 

Talk of the Town

Do you remember how the sun, set
On the occasion, we last conversed?

First, it hid behind some lousy clouds
As I was uttering my dying words

Then, out it came with a shiny glare
As I grasped the truth of your beauty

‘Twas nothing but my own reflection
To my surprise and curiosity.

Now the sun’s told our tale to this town
And I heard how it had made you smile

So if the thought of me drew a smile
Then, I have mastered true lover’s guile
