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
Tonight, I am bidding goodbye to you
Who has had a special place in my heart
Tonight, your memory will be at peace
As I close this chapter for a new start
Tonight, I’ll let go of all my regrets
As I never lost my chance to express
Tonight, I’ll wake up from this reverie
As I’ve concluded this terrible mess
Tonight, I’ll accept my awful failure
As I have found the grace in my failings
And tonight, I’ll not wince nor cry aloud
Because, tonight, I feel content within
Why is my love for you, dyed in wool?
What is the hindrance in moving on?
Why in love have I been made a fool?
What’s been causing this oblivion?
Why is thought of you, ever-present?
What’s keeping me from forgetting you?
Why is sight of you – magnificent?
What’s it you possess than others few?
A slow fire burns deep within me,
And keeps my curiosity at high
I question these puzzles so direly,
To philosophy, a pleasure – wry
If all life has led me to this point,
To make me but a mere proponent
Then, from this day to my last moment,
Just you and love, are my argument.
Why am I estranged to this darkness?
Maybe I’ve been away for too long,
But shouldn’t home always feel home?
Why am I in dire need to belong?
As if this soul is deprived of life
As if this body is in swift decay
As if this mind screams for peace
As if this heart calls to be lured ‘way
Unwise, to have brought the goddess,
When she is of a different realm
Unfortunate, to have fallen in love,
As she leaves to retain her helm
Perhaps, this home lies deep within
For everything is, but mere illusion
Hence, I’ll reside her in my heart;
To feel her, even in seclusion.
Shall I speak of the consequence,
One, that your attention causes?
Words you utter keep me stunned,
And my heart stops upon your gazes.
I am known to have just one gift;
To feel things with intense passion
Yet it happens to consume me;
A divine fire, I cannot abandon.
In sleepless nights I sing to you
A song, however, incomplete.
On bright days I write you letters;
Ardent proses, yet bittersweet.
I am indeed burned with desire;
The consequence you must construe
If this is the damage of attention
Imagine, what your love will do.
The day I wrote all my confessions to her
I knew she was it, the love of my odd life
There is a certain elegance to herself
In order to contain her in words, I strife
It’s only her smile that can overwhelm me
I’m moved every time she gazes up at me
It’s hard to fathom how I could love again
Even when universe keeps depriving me
They say a mortal can only take enough
But the soul loves, and isn’t soul eternal?
I dearly wish she loses to me her heart
So that my win at love can be immortal.
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.
