No Name

You were like

Chinese porcelain

Those eyes of blue heaven

You were sanctity

 

I had you

Wrapped around my soul

I loved you

I loved you too much

 

Did I die

When you ripped me apart?

Was I mawkishly sentimental

Or was I numbed to the core

 

And there I was

Like a dog chasing cars!

Stripped off my vanity

Stripped off my sanity

Memories of Farewell Songs

Memories of farewell songs

Pour down like gentle rain.

Wash off our sins and wrongs

And make us what we were again!

**

Be a bit more than frivolous nostalgia

Stuck in this vicissitude of life: –

We don’t have our visions clear

Gasping for breath in this hopeless strife!

**

Those days when we sang with no fear,

The iron resolves we wore as crowns-

Now like fallen kings in disarray so sheer,

We’re going down in leaps and bounds !

**

In the sea of broken glass

We stand bloodied to the core.

Doomed in the abyss of hell,

We’re so very far from shore.

**

And tears trickle down our eyes

As the songs hit our senses

The ones we sang while we bid goodbye

Hoping to make it big immense!

**

In the race to the pinnacle

We so lost our way!

What we set out to achieve

Never saw the light of the day!

**

And as we walk down the memory lane

We brush the dust from our suits so grey …

Still we raise a toast to our glory days again,

We live to fight another day!

If Only …

If only I could tell you

How much I have lost!

If only I could tell you

What has been the dear cost

Of all the battles that I’ve fought

As I stand alone bereft

Of all the niceties that had once defined me:-

Would you take me for real?

 

If only I could tell you

The joy I feel when you’re near!

If only I could tell you

How much I hold you dear!

Words cannot define my feelings

That I have for you so sheer

The love bursting out of my fragile senses:-

Would you let me in just for once?

 

Alas! I cannot express and I don’t know why …

With all my earnest endeavors, I try and I try …

Cut me open and I bet you shall see:-

The one who loves you, the real me!

Give me your love, sweetheart, let it rain,

As I make my way to the final walk down the lane …

 

If only I could tell you

That I’m there only for few days;

If only I could tell you

The hole in my heart has got me swayed;

No matter how much money I pay

It can’t get fixed as I wait for the obvious …

Would you take me to your arms and kiss me once?

 

If only I could tell you

That every moment I crave to be with you!

If only I could tell you

My love’s as pure as a nascent drop of dew!

I want to share with you my deepest darkest fears;

I want to share with you my struggles through the years;

Life is short and I laugh at my predicament:-

Would you be by my side and let me live again?

 

Alas! I cannot express and I don’t know why …

With all my earnest endeavors, I try and I try …

Cut me open and I bet you shall see:-

The one who loves you, the real me!

Give me your love, sweetheart, let it rain,

As I make my way to the final walk down the lane …

The Gesture …

I try, I try and I keep on trying …

The words get stuck in my mouth!

Wish I could gather myself

And let it all out …

 

All out in one go.

Shed this burden off my chest.

It’s killing me softly from inside:-

I’m captive at despair’s behest!

 

That I’m sorry, I really am,

No, not a cliche, neither a hopeless rant!

I regret from my heart’s core the day

When I let go of your hand!

 

But I couldn’t tell you that all awhile;

I am but a captive of my obnoxious pride.

The evil egoist messes my mind:-

Alas, I couldn’t but take the stride!

 

To tell you that it was my fault!

Distraction got me swayed!

You wanted to build a house

And I brought it down before it was made!

 

Bathed in my chauvinism

I was hopeless as you cried;

I couldn’t fathom that with

Every teardrop a part of you died …

 

I do now and I curse myself

As I helplessly stand alone

Wish you could take me back

But then you’ve already moved on …

 

I know it’s too late and you care less

But still I want to look into your eyes

And let go of my emotions as I

Hold your hand and apologize!
