Lost & Gone
Under the strips of sliding clouds,
in the shades of burning lights,
with spilling eyes,
I breathed in suppressed agonies,
curling up in her maledictions.
the menance I am ,snuff in her love,
to inflict her with immense pain.
Stubborn to chase my likes,
Stone hearted to ignore her needs,
I bleed her heart with my word swords.
once my words made her day,
And now she says they tramples her to earth.
once she existed for me
And now she blames herself for my existence.
And then everday we walked the same lane
hand in hand towards the same sea.
As the minutes and seconds stumbled,
in the whirlwind of discords and dislikes,
somewhere we lost our hands.
I tried snatching her back,
but by then she had become
a different self unknown to me,
and we never again saw the same sunset.
I sobbed and whimpered,
muttered in anger,
showered myself in curse,
and my pillow
collected them all in silence
warmed me up ,
soothing me off to sleep,
away from all the worldly sorrows.
And like the rest in the town
the next day I am to rise with
bloated eyes and bruised smile
to fake the world out there,
“we live happily in unison”.
With many smiling faces around,
with many held out hands around,
I am still a lost child in the crowd.
