For long...

For long, she wasn't sure
As her tears clouded her thoughts
While her heart ached for him
She felt she was the one at fault

For long, she waited for him
To remove the mask and reveal himself
But he was playing a game to win
With tricks to disappear, up his sleeve

For long, she buried her myriad emotions
Yet vulnerabilities made her weak
But how would he even know
As he was detached and never in love

For long, she wanted him back
To take her hand and make her believe
Yet, he was happy in his own world
Failing to realize that he played with someone's heart

For long, she hoped he was real
Not just a fantasy or a midnight dream
Longing for him to take a step forward
But now she knows he just didn't care

The incomplete one!

I sit here in silence and think...
What all did you take when you left?
'Cause everything's changed in a blink...
And nothing is where I kept...

My palm still feels very numb...
Maybe it's still looking for your hand...
Oh! Where did I spill all the feelings dumb?
Without them it's all very empty in my mind

I had buried my tears deep inside...
You seem to have dug up the well...
I had hid my heart and parked it aside...
Now that place is empty as well...

After thought: this one is incomplete and it's been stuck like that for a while.. so going ahead and posting it with a hope to revise it sometime soon

I Live

When your eyes find me, I burn
When your silence reaches me, I breathe
When you hold my hand, I survive
When you think about me, I dream
When you talk to me, I smile
When you smile at me, I glow
When you come back to me, I love
When you touch my heart, I live


When the love was gone!

Hold my hand lady.. because you are lost
This is not the path you should be treading
And its gone all dark and eerie
Let me help you go back in time

The arms that held you are long gone
As they had to keep the warmth elsewhere
Oh! do not stand there and shiver in the cold
Your heart once frozen, will die a silent death

I can see the darkness in your eyes
Must be the despair of looking for someone
Bring back the sparkle to light our trail
As we have to go back a long way

Let go of your silence and screech a bit
At least it would scare away the demons
The beasts are following us close behind
They wait to gobble you the moment you fall

Do not wait for someone who left you
They have moved on and gone much ahead
beyond the time and space where your words can reach
Let's dig a quick hole to bury your burden of love

Once you are safe, let's send a prayer up
Its not for us to judge if the journey was worth it
But remember that you had the strength to walk back again
When the love was gone and you stood there alone
