    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?

    - 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.

    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...
