AUTUMN IS RED !!! ______________________________________________
When the clouds burned with fall's flame And beneath the same sky I unknowingly gave birth to poetries "A poet" they called me then Now my amateur poems are ready To live their flamboyant death Their shadows have left their domicile Which once resided In the willows of dangling sunshine And at present they breathe Snowflakes of winter's homecoming The red blaze by the road-side Speak of yesterday's embers Those fallen leaves narrate different rhymes But all of them murmur the same recovery Of the summer's heartbreak
And I know the red scarf on that bench Has stories to recite about jump and then regret 'Cause 'tis the season of drawing broken hearts On the misty glass fascia And of taking in the musky sweet smell Of the piled raked leaves The charm after the monsoon rain Is all about untangling the hair And allowing the cool breeze to caress one's freckles Letting the wildflower seed find Their home in between the wool of a cardigan It's the month of rustling of dry notes A time of the year when the squirrels hide My frozen ink with their nuts "A poet" I never called myself Rather an Autumn-phile Who spent 99 Springs dying... To rise from fall
There's a crowd in the room Enclosed with random thoughts That's when I feel left out So I try to smile and eventually I rest my sight on her Always there's a girl who finds Something common with everyone Laughs all day with a happier piece of heart And knows how to pep talk But do they ever learn she grows Miserable deeply inside Everyone thinks she's smart Then again some turn it against her Maybe she sleeps under her bed at midnight Where flows the river of tears still unknown If there's lot to hold there's lot to lose too They say, "look into their eyes to see the truth" But her shimmering ones are too good to fool a passer by Hugs after party she walks down the aisle alone Should I say something or maybe just steal a glance Just one and then I would divert my way Eventually after Few steps she turns around My gaze shifts to the street light flickering Mind whispers "Gather courage ask her name and tell yours" It's already time she heads straight toward me I wish my grey pupils look calm and soothing And try to perfectly hide the mischievousness inside There's always a girl who keeps Lil secrets and feelings buried Then again will she keep this meeting one? Mine?
