My side of the story
Life was perfectly in sync with the melody of my heart
Peace, love and zeal were all combined in one.
Give generously and take nothing in return,
this anthem I would sing again and again.
Battling and conquering all the challenges ahead,
Life began to seem like it was just beginning to bend.
A beautiful me would wake up each day to conquer the world,
but one thing constantly untouched - Love.
Day after day I would think and my heart would swell,
I wish I had someone to nurture and call my own.
I would cry, mourn and hurt,
But oh! what could cure a lonely one's hurt?
And then one day it came,
knocking at my aching heart.
I leaped with joy because I know how I waited.
Time began to fill the cracks with love.
Now that love was found everything seemed so beautiful,
Time and distance had no measure.
But love had its own terms and conditions,
It brought with its own rules.
It challenged and tested all that I had and all that I loved.
I felt like the earth beneath was beginning to crumble.
Family and loved ones, all my relations put at stake,
But my loving heart would not cease holding that one.
Every inch and bit was being taken,
but I watched helplessly and couldn't put an end to it all.
And then when everything seemed like it had slipped away,
love was all that was left with me.
Was it all worth I questioned?
Loved ones all bruised, they too questioned.
I struggled between the future and the past,
my past asked for justice while my future wanted the sacrifice.
After a perilous tussle I chose the future,
but oh how I never imagined what cost I'd have to pay.
One, three and five months down, loves true colors were at play,
I watched and bore silently as I had nothing more to spare.
Gone with the wind everything I knew,
Now life knew nothing but pain.
After everything it was still not over,
As I watched, I let even the little go.
Now I have been defamed after all I have become,
As though they had nothing to do with it all.
Life has become worst then a nightmare,
with me having to sacrifice even my most precious bond.
Love came and stayed,
But oh how I lost everything else.
