When you were gone Every single day, a piece of my heart Withered, like the orchids on the table The sunrise seemed dimmer And the horizon seemed too far Rainbows lost their hues And flowers, their perfume I breathed chaos, gulped down pain The love had died, I buried it In the graveyard of my heart And the epitaph says your name I don't sing love jingles anymore, forgot Nor I looked at the mirror I feared, my reflection would show Melancholy, crawling, in the corners of my eyes I couldn't feel the breeze, patter of raindrops Upon my cheeks, numb But now, I realise Nothing is eternal, neither bliss nor pain As I open the blindfold on my eyes I hear the reverberation of my own call I can't let you win I won't let my soul die I will caress the scars, the bruises On my heart, and they'll heal I will sing, not for you, but for me And embrace my own self I feel much better, writing a new story On the same diary And now, I want to thank you, As because of you, I discovered myself again
Every night, I pull out a thread From a dreamy tapestry upon my heart Collecting pieces of an unsolved mystery Floating in your vast tranquil eyes Oh, your smile silhouetted so perfectly Against that dark gloomy soul Whenever I stare at the vicinity I see some stars, fading, lost And they remind me of myself, sometimes Listening to the silent hums Of a scarred heart, bleeding With each passing day, I tear a leaf Of this fake story, withering I watch you, everyday, as you wear a smile On your barren face Let me take some shallow breaths Before I sleep, closing these sunken eyes I still dance on the rhythm of your heartbeat Gulping down fear and sorrow Lost in the labyrinth of your sombre love
O dear, you were just a stranger But why did my heart flutter Whenever you passed by A thousand scented emotions Rushed down my nerves As I inhaled your intoxicating presence Why does your touch feel so serene Creating ripples in my deserted soul Your words, seem so euphonic Like an ambrosia for my soul I don't know, Maybe you are an illusion Maybe you are my mistake Maybe you are just a dream But my heart doesn't care about it now Maybe that's called love
This is my submission for #royal_favorites challenge. My exams are starting from day after tomorrow, so this is my last post before exams. Just somehow managed to write this. I am writing about books. I love reading them and the most favourite one among is Harry Potter.
Whenever I hold you in my arm Ecstasy starts flowing in my veins Every word, triggers a different emotion Dripping bliss and melancholy Love and heartbreak Even while sitting in chaos You smell like a calm lake Cloudy dreams fog up my mind When I read you, page by page Our hearts are tied Not with strings But with syllables and letters O my dear book You are my only friend in loneliness Your words are a solace to my aching heart I love you, to the moon and back
