Torn we are.

Torn we are between here and there,

But it is with you I want to be everywhere.

The pain of separation with you I can share,

Other’s don’t bother and neither do they care.

The distance is not really what I fear,

But it is the thought of you not being near.

So often it’s your picture I stare,

Trying to reach you climbing some imaginary stairs.

Not an excuse.

You say I don’t express my love anymore,

I didn’t know that we were keeping a score.

I might not say it a lot,

But in my head I repeat it non-stop.

So doesn’t matter I say it or not,

Remember you are all I have got.

I am not here to make any excuse,

Even from billion it’s you I’ll choose.

How blessed I am.

Being away might make you feel frustrated,

But I promise you will never feel deserted.

Hardly now we get to talk,

So stuffs I have to say I keep in stock.

Don’t think that I don’t think about you,

I miss you at times more than few.

This distance sure can make one feel helpless,

It’s worth it as on your love has it’s bless.

Stars and Moon.

Since I can’t meet you soon,

I compare your beauty to stars and the moon.

Love is not something to be tied to a chain,

But staying away from you is full of pain.

Like daily comes and goes the tide,

You thought stays always by my side.

Like a shadow that to stay with you tries,

I am always around you in disguise.

Memories that came.

20170628_185833

 

The splattering rains today rekindled memories few,

Like on leaves winter leaves the morning dew.

I wonder now if it’s rain there,

Hiding from me you are where.

Does rainbow there forms on ground,

And even flowers there make a giggling sound.

Are clouds there made of cotton candy,

So does eating them comes really handy.

Birds there must be of various colours,

Paint the sky does they with their valour.

Houses there must be of flower brick,

How they hold together then must be the real trick.

I wonder if about me you ever think,

Or am I now lost count of countless blink.

I wonder if it rains there,

And if that makes you remember of I am where.

The rain today brought along memories of you,

After ages also which seems new.

Always free.

Like an idle useless old tree,

I am for you always free.

Confused I am about the time,

Like in darkness one is counting dimes.

Unless autumn when a leaf from tree fall,

You don’t need any reason to call.

So make me hear your beautiful voice,

Whenever you want it’s your choice.
