    Unrequited

    Years have already gone
    But my feelings are not done
    It may be too late or too much

    I failed to recognize it back then
    But now, i see it clearly
    It's too late now

    Your presence makes it deeper
    The heart can't contain all these words
    It's too much now

    Lose you or let myself lose
    It's up for me to choose

    Roses might be blooming
    But they appear wilted to me,
    And I wonder why.

    The vase of roses,
    That have your name etched on them,
    Suddenly seems so foreign.

    A tear accompanies the smile now
    That lit up my eyes
    At the sight of you.

    The sky might be blue
    But it appears grey to me now,
    And I realize why.

    Your presence seems to be fading away
    As if it was just a dream
    When you held my hand in yours.

    Maybe it was just me
    Living in my fantasy world
    Where your smiles were all mine.

    I might be special
    But I'm not special to you,
    And I weep why.

    Tell the tale, Succubus

    I don't know how to talk to him anymore
    I feel as though every word that slips will drive the weapon further in
    I feel as though the song will last but the friendship won't
    I learn to keep myself at arms length
    For not every boy is mine to own

    I despise the way the story repeats itself
    How I fall for the ones wrought with damage
    I hate myself for the sad eyes and empty souls...
    my heart it clenches
    stuck in it's clutches, my new home

    Leaping in bounds to save every fallen soldier
    Lending a heart, temporary
    a crying shoulder
    My light split in fragments for every stray
    I sit in darkness with none...for me

    I sing to myself in melancholy
    The burden of an empath
    Akin to none,
    the lie "I'm fine" in your eyes
    Seen only by a pain interpreter

    The bitter that I've been taking
    They can never belong to me
    So I return every stray
    where I found 'em
    Either in the arms of another or the streets

    The heart is a thing of futility
    I know now
    I wish we had been taught how to care for the most fragile organ in the human body
    Yet somehow the most proud

    Maybe then I wouldn't hurt the ones who seek the flame

    Maybe, just maybe, even one would call my name

    Remnants

    I know it was our last but,
    I can still smell the fragrance of your hair,
    when we sat there on the precipice,
    Your eyes on the horizon, mine on you,
    Breath still ragged from a climb
    so wearing yet elating,
    Heart pounding in my ears like it's the last,
    all the while your irises reflected the moaning valley.

    I know it was our last but,
    I can still feel the first rush of tingle,
    when your hands brushed against mine,
    While you hopped alongside
    without a care in the world.
    I swear time stopped in that fraction of a moment,
    And I promised the heaven
    I would make you mine.

    I know it was our last but,
    I still remember the way
    your fingers pulsated in my palms,
    all the while my mind raced to the first day of fall,
    two decades later,
    The two of us on a walk,
    Autumn leaves caressing your delicate cheeks,
    You ranting while I listen enraptured.

    I know it was our last but,
    I've felt no other high like the one you gave
    when you rested your head on my shoulder,
    and my whole world collapsed beneath your feet,
    Euphoria engraved into my whole existence,
    Memory latched onto my consciousness,
    as stubborn as the lump in my throat,
    that resurfaces with every winter morning.

    I know it was our last but,
    I still crave for a little more of our lasts,
    your disarming smile,
    and the softness of your hands,
    so that I could carry with me the remnants of our lasts.
    I know I could conquer the world with it,
    But what good is the world to me
    without you by my side.

    I bathe in silver waters
    To rid my body of that scent

    I turn my eyes to the golden sun
    Letting the luminance fill this void

    I bury in the womb of this red earth
    A fragile love to be born again

    I scattered upon the green fields
    Blue blossoms of forget-me-nots

    I breath in deep this black night
    To fill my empty chest with stars

    Finally on an altar of alabaster white
    I lay my devotion to be sacrificed

    Unrequited

    Unrequited love doesn’t have
    the grace of being acknowledged..
    No, not even by yourself..
    its an oxymoron of love that
    lives unseen in the losers mind

    Pretend Love

    I never expected you to love me
    until you asked me to love you first

    You manipulated your way into my heart
    but I would've given it to you willingly

    All I wanted in return was for you to be
    the person that you pretended to be

    You know...
    The person that was in love with me

    "Always Gardener, Never Rose"

    Always a gardener, but never the rose;
    As it's sung in songs, penned in purple prose.
    A lyrical lore often written before,
    But those aren’t the volumes I’m looking for!

    Those sad-settling scenes should be ignored;
    Taken from movies, strewn on cutting room floors.
    You can’t open minds by shutting the door;
    hopeful hearts will be reeling from what minds ignored.

    You toil with rake to get the bouquet,
    But fragrant fall flowers will wilt anyway
    They promise you blooms, leave only leaves the next day
    Finding you faltering, and stumbling to stay.

    Love is when you wait for someone unconditionally even without any assurance that he will come back.

    That frozen morning,
    That crimson love,
    That eternal longing.

    UNREQUITED LOVE

    Being in love, she saw none but her boy,
    Less did she knew, she wasn't more than a silicon toy,
    When every inch of her body he tasted,
    With nectar of her dignity when he got saturated,
    While she preserved the memories, each fibre of that broken thread,
    He set a price for each moment she spent on his bed.

    Friends?

    Why did I have to be an all or nothing kinda gal?

    I wish I could be your friend.
    But I cant

    I know I could fall for you..
    Someday..
    Maybe..
    What if?

    I dont want to be your friend
    Because Im scared I want more
    Im scared of letting you see it
    Im scared that I want to let you in

    I wish I could be your friend
    But i cant..

    Her

    To her, I'm but a faint silhouette
    Breathe life onto only by sunset
    Cries of love to her a whisper
    Destined to fade away and disappear
    Never did it instill on her memory
    An image of melancholy and reverie

    Oh, but I shall love her till the end
    Isn't that what true love should withstand?

    - Moving On -

    So I’ve decided to set myself free,
    Free from the chains of infatuation,
    Infatuations that I had
    about you & I, becoming us one day…
    Much like anyone else this was
    beyond difficult to bring myself to believe,
    But then only to learn I was the only one in
    this relationship to begin with…

    As it was me who couldn’t make my peace with,
    And I apologise for my oblivious behaviour…
    I was probably drowning in the pool of misconceptions…

    But then better late than never,
    I believe, if we’re meant to be
    then so shall be,
    But now I draw the line, for my sanity and peace,
    I’ll find myself ‘the one’ in time, I know,
    I won’t rush, I won’t race time…

    And so I’ve decided to move on
    from this chapter in my book,
    And so I’ve decided to end this chapter,
    Right here, and that’s it,
    If time permits we’ll meet again,
    But I know I’ll accept whatever will be,
    For now, I’m moving on…

    तेरे वह सारे चांदनी रातें, उसके।
    और ये बीरान तप्ती दोपहर, मेरे।
    तेरे वह सारे वसन्त के सुबह, उसके।
    और ये बेदर्द सर्द के रातें, मेरे।
    तेरे इन्द्रधनुष के वह सारे रंगे, उसके।
    और ये काले बेरंग बादल, मेरे।
    तेरे सारे फूल, कलिया सबकुछ; उसका।
    और ये जहरीले, दर्दीले कांटे; मेरे।

    तेरे वह इश्क का पहला लाल रंग,
    तेरे वह नये नवीले मुस्कराहट के हजारों ढंग,
    तेरे वह नया नया सा अलग एक लाज शर्म,
    तेरे वह नयी नयी नइ सी मासूमियत,
    तेरे वह अलग सा धडकता हुआ दिल,
    सब उसके ।

    और मेरा ये टूटा फूटा दिल, मेरा ।
    बस ये टूटा फूटा दिल ही मेरा ।

    Heartfelt
    Broken words
    went forever
    unheard

    Stuttered
    declaration of love
    falling on deaf ears

    He Isn't Mine

    His arms are around me
    But he isn't mine
    We spend hours at dawn talking about our futures
    Sharing our darkest secrets with eachother
    But he isn't mine
    At night I lie on his chest
    Comforted by the sound of his heartbeat
    But he isn't mine
    I wake up and see him next to me
    Feeling safe in his presence
    But he isn't mine

    I knew what I was getting into
    I knew deep down that I wasn't ready
    To be only his when he wants me to
    To cast my feelings aside
    To focus only on the moment
    And to not end up wishing

    That he was mine

    Are you really there?

    It was just now that we met.
    Conversation effortless
    Rapid texts back and forth
    Paragraphs suddenly proceeded by single lines.
    Time less
    My mind a MESS
    I don't want to be a pest.

    A big day came,
    You were there
    But were you really there?
    Online
    Few words
    back and forth
    You missed it
    I craved your attention
    Reconsideration
    Is there's any conciliation?


    Maybe
    I tell myself...
    "When the sun sets I'll have his time"
    Is this fair?
    My heart bare
    Are you truly there?

    Unrequited love

    Loving you wasn't my plan,
    Although I'm happy I did.
    Though you don't love me back..
    I don't hold any grudge against you,
    I just want to let you know
    What I feel for you..
    And that was the best feeling ever...
