Guitar strings strumming a tune
Song of life or love ,
Swaying with the hearts rhythm
Fighting to stay true.
A rectangular paper defining success
Talent a mear addition ,
Saving grace only the passion.
To keep pursuing or not,
Solving the confusion.
For to survive in this harsh world
You need the rectangular paper
And in attaining that you reach your goal.
They know nothing about me. I want to talk about it but I can’t. Loving you was a sin. Pretending not to love you was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Making me love you was the sin you made. I can’t forgive you for this. When you love someone, it’s worth fighting for no matter what the odds are. But this is one battle I don’t want to fight. I surrender to you as in this sin I will find my happiness.
Singing in your ears everyday
Warmth from you is the only comfort
Which lures me to stay.
Alive or dead ,
It matters to me.
For in your presence ,
I find the little joy left in me to see.
Tattered and torn you may be
From the loneliness of this world,
You set me free.
But all that was seen was my face
Scars and pain etched on it
A flinch seen everytime I enter
Folds of cloth covering the secrets
To save my breathe for explanations,
To protect me from sympathies.
All I wanted was respect
Now I just wish , I could forgive
The man I had never met.
Pulled to you i stayed put
Hand cuffed yet free
Each night a torment yet a pleasure
Pain yet heaven
Day by day it went on
War between body and soul
Darkness tempting my light
Tied yet struggling to take flight
A fine day i wake up with a scream
Walking away thinking all to be just a dream.
Following patterns i walk the first path
Eerie surroundings make my heart pound
‘Am digging my own grave’, i think to myself
Hesitant and curious steps pull my body forward
Ghostly figures zoom by
My face drained of blood , looking Ashen
Final pattern halts my progress
‘X’ marks the spot
As nervous nerves hit my veins
A sound makes me look up
A burst , flowers and my boyfriend fall from a tree
He on a rope holding a flower
Flaunting the fact he is a mountain climber
A mini heart attack later
I find my voice
A proposal and surprise
A day that ended with double delights.
Backpack on my shoulders
My travel list gets taller
Sunrise here and a sunset there
Each a special occasion
Without a moment to spare
Hitch hiking i sit to rest
Out of nowhere he jumps out
Putting my courage to test
Sparks ignite immediately
We ravage each other fiercely
Satiated we cuddle for a bit
Excitement are aplenty with my bearded bandit.
It was a premediated plan
Using the telescope the only option
For the date he would have will happen only once
Opportunity missed , never to be seen again for a very long time
Waiting for his date had never been more pleasurable
A gentle fire warming his body outwardly and a wine glass warming him from inside
Scheduled time to meet fast approaching
Heart pounding with anticipation
There she went in lightening speed
Even a moment of distraction acting as a lost opportunity
His eyes ravished her to his heart’s content
For it was his dream to get even a glimpse of her
He knew he might never see her again in this lifetime
But his heart and mind were at peace for his date had not disappointed him.
Floating on the river of time
Drowning under mountanious work
Coming to my senses a herculean task
Deadlines nearing ,
Surrounded by coffee flasks
The only entertainment is watching the time ticking by
Continuously to the work am tied
End point just a few months away
After which its just get sun kissed and whole day play.
It was a bright sunny Sunday morning and I just had pancakes for breakfast. It was my birthday today. I had to go out to meet my boyfriend and it was already getting late. Just as i finished eating i heard the doorbell ring and i went to see who it was. When i opened the door noone was there. With my face all scrunched up with annoyance i was about to shut the door when i noticed the lumpy parcel with balloons along side it. Getting all excited i opened the parcel with enthusiasm of a two year old getting presents. Tears were flowing from my eyes as i had got the favourite picture of me and dad together on our backyard swing with a cute little teddy bear. I mouthed out loud the words, ” I miss you dad.” Instantly i heard a reply in my dad’s voice, “I miss you too my angel.” Shocked i turned around to see my boyfriend emerging from behind a tree. I rushed to hug him. He said, ” Happy bday my love!! I cannot give you back your dad but me being a ventriloquist, I can just give you his voice. Hope you are happy with that love!! ” All i could manage was a sob and a hug and feel loved and content in the arms of my loved one.
