i thought i would move on...
I thought I would move on
but the same hallucination
the same ringing voice
I thought it would leave me.
My first love, starting from the days
The first days when the realization
dawned upon me…
The realization of love, romanticized
to the extreme;
You were the one who came out
straight out of the pages of some novel.
Ruffled hair, shabby kurta, high
sounding words, a cigarette in hand
Yet dreamy eyes, artistic fingers.
U were careless yet very caring
A love I worshipped, looked up to
N then the real world dawned upon me
U became blurred, yet never
I loved n lost, loved n lost
Never felt alone, coz u were there
Always with me, when I was happy
I forgot u, when hurt, I wanted u,
U were there.
A witness to all those lonely nights
N wet pillow
U heard those silent screams
That calm madness, u saw it.
You were, u are , n u will b
Every dream I see, I wish it were u.
You are a lie
But a truth greater than any truth.
A stranger, yet my closest confidant
N now I never want u to leave me.
I hear your voice again,
But never can I see u.
Still, I am happy u r there.
