    - 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

    Withered Love

    I laid my sonnets in between pages of pain and doubts
    To bookmark a chapter I wrote dearly in the past
    About you and your smiles

    Time went by
    And they withered beautifully and still
    I held them for so long
    With a speck of hope 
    You'll flip to the right page and see.


    ***


    But at the time you finally found them
    I already moved on
    With a new flower bud
    At the tip of my soul
    This time not to be pressed and die
    But to bloom outside dusty pages
    Not for you or anyone
    But for myself alone.

    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?

    - Tickles -

    Weirdly, never thought
    we’d feel the same for each other,
    I’d only ever perceived it as one of
    my many unrequited infatuations...

    And yet weirdly, again,
    I felt the very same
    butterflies tickle my insides
    having known that it was mutual
    from the very beginning...

    When She Looks Back

    And when she looks back
    I know it’s not me she sees, it’s him
    Who played on that team in the gym
    Who she fell for so long ago
    And when she looks back
    I can’t help but look back too
    And see the hell he put her through
    There’s so much I want her to know
    Cause when she looks back,
    It’s not a place that she should go

    This one is about how unfair human sexuality can sometimes be. About how you can love someone so deeply and know that they love you back, but not in the same way. All because of this piece of human biology that we cannot control or change. It's the hardest thing ever to know that there's only one thing keeping you from what you wish.

    To fight biology

    I wish I could fight biology.
    To unload some of the cells and molecules within you
    To rid you of certain hormones and genes
    To mold your DNA into something fitting for us both
    You love me, but this innate nemesis said: “No more.”
    No more to our history, to our future, to my dreams
    And I crave so hard to erase it.
    To wage war in your body and alter it
    And change you.
    And make you mine.
    But there is no fighting biology.
    You will always be as you are.
    And I will never have what my body so desperately desires.

    You've taught me many things. The most important one being - I don't need your love and attention as much as my mind believes it does.
    Oh, how I wish I could tell you, your attention does make my heart flutter though.

    This is the incessant war between my heart and my head.

    Your Regret

    I could have loved you,
    More than they ever loved you.
    You sad/mad? Too bad.

    Butterflies in This Cage

    "I feel butterflies inside my stomach,"
    There's always this phrase,
    every time I read a romance novel,
    or watching a romance movie.
    As confused as I am at that time,
    I never knew it would happen to me,
    every time you flick my forehead,
    softly with your finger tips.
    But...
    I lock my butterflies forever,
    so you won't know these feelings,
    and we could forever be friend.

    Certain

    Your loving me back
    is as dicey as birth
    but my loving you
    is as certain as death.

    She

    O' She love herself & do smile
    & bear her pains; her life's low
    She is dreaming of many mile
    and she always flow and flow.

    And her sweet looks & lovely nature
    Makes me happy everyday
    She's herself clone of whole nature
    Her beauty made of holy clay.

    She wipes her tears and smile always
    To me, her heart's a burning glow,
    & she's with me in my sorrowful days
    Yay,- she helps me in my life's show.

    "Try to keep them, poet, those erotic visions of yours, however few of them there are that can be stilled. Put them, half-hidden, in your lines."
    - Constantine P. Cavafy


    I end up writing things like this, when I read Cavafy while having breakfast. ����




    Also, on a less melancholic and more celebratory note...
    Happy Birthday, Rahul! ����������
    @hiesenberg
    You're a wonderful writer and an amazing soul.

    When I found you, you appeared somewhat fragile. And all I've ever wanted is to be there with you. You opened up and spoke to me all about her.

    Amidst your own chaos, you helped me make sense of mine. I adore what we have built together. I have never valued a friendship to the same extent as ours. Every interaction is bliss, every moment is precious, every date - a treasure.

    Today, you gazed towards the floor as you sat opposite me. I sipped my coffee while you wiped the lens of the glasses you usually wear. You begin talking about how you're fixing things with her, slowly. You tell me it will never be the same, that you resent her for whatever she has done. However, your words and my gut instinct are asynchronous. For I wonder, how long is it going to be before you decide to leave me for a future with your past.

    FOR UNREQUITED LOVE


    Once, long ago I dreamt of you by my side
    Alight in our own world, treading a fine line
    Gazing at stars, watching how times ride
    Moving together towards life's finish line

    I conjured us a future, beautiful and bright
    Where I was yours and you were mine
    I loved you with all my young heart's might
    If you'd done the same, it would be so divine

    Of course you never knew, never heard my sighs
    You missed my fevered glances passing by
    I thought of you amidst my lows and highs
    I was simply another star in your dazzling sky

    At night to my dreams you silently crept
    Showered me with kisses, cradled my head
    You murmured adoration, my heart was swept
    But, come the morning, I was alone in bed

    I see you with your lover once in a while
    When you hold her hand, I wish it was mine
    My heart aches hard, but I manage a smile
    Till you turn away, and I pretend I'm fine

    The strange thing is, I don't hate her anymore
    This lover of yours, who blew my dearest hopes
    You seem happy with her, I couldn't ask for more
    It's time to bid adieu to my disillusioned tropes

    Years from now, it won’t hurt to look at you
    Think of you fondly, but it'll never be the same
    I'll burn the love letters and the portraits I drew
    So you may live without ever knowing my name

    Maybe I'm the sun and you're the elusive moon
    Who light the world, but never meet as one
    Or perhaps I'm the sunflowers who always swoon
    Delicate petals straining to touch the distant sun
