A Brighter Dawn
The Mirror does not lie.
I have seen it penetrating,against all might,
With the profound gaze, jeering the soul inside.
It asks, "O Sakhi! Are you scared?"
"Are you scared to let go of the most precious,"
" that you hide from the world?"
"that you claim to be yours?"
Bewildered, I ask, "what is Love?"
"Is it to keep acquiesce with a glittering smile,
shrouding a bosom drenched in Crimson ?"
"Or is it to retort back against all odds,
all merciless strings that chokes you to your throat?"
"Is it humbly of you or, to appease your want? "
"O Radheya, does love make you stronger "
"Or it snatches all your courage to suffer?"
"Does it make you blind to not see the pang
that slowly devours both?"
“You watch your precious shatter,
right before you with a reassuring smile,
hiding imperishable lesions,
that only widens each day.”
“How can this heartless gesture be called love ?”
“Then why do I dread the thought of parting the most ?” I sighed
“Is it the fear that we will not meet again
Or, the thought that with you I will lose the reminiscence of us ?”
“those that I have been hiding with guile ?”
“O Vasusena! Do you fear
that the silence would not be meaningful again?
Do you fear that the bravest man underlying the golden guard
Be stripped of the shade, over again?
Or, do you dread that the endless enigma,
finally come to an end ?”
" Or would you rather be selfish
to still hold onto it ?"
“to watch us devastate together,
comforting with the sweetest lie ?
"Or, would you let go?"
“Let go of the hold blaming the curse, yet again ?”
"With that all unjustness
that together we vowed to suffer,"
I found him smiling, so blissful in its charm.
"I know who I am,so do you, Dear"
“This parting is the beginning of glee”
“When the night falls, does not mean the Sun dies.”
“You wait for the dawn to come”
“You wait for the curse to drop”
“Meanwhile you wait, wait for the longing to end”
“Love make you stronger to bear the pain,
For the longing would not go in vain”
So, the weakness shelters in my greed ?
But that will gradually melt,
with the warmth that the tears bring.
The tear of joy, of a new dawn.
It teaches you to let go.
So I let it go, with the pride of his Queen.
