What have you done?
What have you done to me?
Why do my eyes long for a glance at you?
Why do my ears starve when they don't hear your voice?
Why does my tongue crave to speak with you?
Why do my hands desire to hold you?
Why does my heart skip a beat when you look at me?
I've heard people calling it a crush,
But do you know that you've crushed me underneath the weight of your presence?
That you've had me prisoner in the dungeon of your thoughts?
That you've had me spellbound by the things you do?
That you've pierced through me with those eyes of yours?
That you've melted me with your words?
You've annihilated every defence I have
You've conquered my fortress
And you have my heart for a hosta...
Every door to you is closed
Every hope of reaching you is lost
I know you won't hear me
I know you shut me out.
Yet I will sing,
I will sing of my love for you.
I'll ask the stars
If they had measured my love for you.
I'll ask the sky
If it had seen my love's boundaries.
I'll ask the sea
If it could fathom the depth of my love.
I'll ask the Everest
I'll ask him if he could see the peak of my love.
Yet you couldn't see my love for you
What did it lack?
I'll ask the sun
If my passion was any colder.
I'll ask the moon
If my care was any less.
I'll ask the cosmos
If the space you've made in my heart
When you left me was any smaller;
If the pain you've put me through
Was not enough to make the ea...
It's 2 a.m.
Bestie's just dozed off to sleep
I lay wide awake on my bed
Thinking of you
Or rather, thinking of US
I imagine us in love
Lost in a world of dreams
Where everything lasts forever
The life we'd spend together
The laughs we'd have
The trips we'd make
Where our love will grow on and on
Where time cannot restrain it
Where there's none but you and me
Where you will be my world
And I will be yours.
I sigh loudly
Suddenly thrown back into reality
Will that dream ever become true?
Will you love me back?
Will I love you unconditionally?
Or will you just remain another crush?
The playful little stream
Becomes an ocean and rises
To devour me
The fluffy white clouds
Turn heavy and black
Cover the sun
Strike me with lightning
The refreshing breeze turns into a gale
Blows me away
The hands that held me with love
Suddenly let go
I fall from the cliff
Deep down into the abyss
Endless and dark
None to hold me
None to keep me from falling
I let out a cry but there is no one to hear
No one to reach out and hold me
Who will take me near?
Hold me dear?
Wipe my tears?
Calm my fears?
Who can I look to?
Who can I look to?
Sandwich thou art mighty
Thou art my stomach's deity
Thou satisfieth my hunger
Thou pacifieth my anger
Thou art very yummy
Thou enlargeth my tummy
Thou art my stomach's king
To you will I always cling.

See the infant smile in his cradle
Watch him open his tiny eyes
Eyes unbiased and innocent
He's surrounded by a transparency
That makes him see the world as it is
But wait until he grows up
As soon as he starts thinking
The world begins to cover his eyes
With lies woven thick that mask his sight
A blanket of prejudice laid on him
And alas! Another fresh soul is lost
Into the abyss of self justification
Like all the millions before him.

Up above this world I rise, carried by my dreams,
Beautiful like colourful butterflies with fluttering wings.
I bathe in the soft moonlight
The stars are shining in the clear sky
Like freckles on a damsel's nose
Vibrant like the feathers of the peacock
A subtle turquoise glow lights my path
I find myself racing against reality into a depth I never have been before
I wish I could soar here forever
Away from the world so hollow and banal.
I can see the love floating in the air....
The wind of friendship beating on my face..
Blowing away loneliness and filling my lungs with joy and love....
The sweet smell reviving my heart...
Oh tell me something more beautiful than the symphony of friendship... The melody of two hearts so in love...
I love it when I'm asked to login somewhere
It gives me a reason to write your beautiful name
And remember the day you opened those lovely eyes.
I believe future is not something that happens on its own. Every second of future is nothing but a projection of the present. The next word I type depends the word I'm typing now. So future is nothing but a result of what we do now. It is a long way to 2050. But in today's world time is not a matter of consideration or so it seems. Many people like to see the bright things. But darkness is equally important. So I'd like to talk about some things that might happen in the future that worry me. The first thing, books. Most people do not have a habit of reading and I'm afraid reading is going to become something alien in the near future. Then follows writing. And here I mean writing...
Who was I? Who were you?
Connected in the blink of an eye,
Sharing our hearts,
Pouring out our souls,
A bond stronger than anything we know
Once isolated notes now making a beautiful melody,
You are a blessing I never saw coming
Maybe you're a blessing I don't deserve
But the strength I gain when I know you are there for me,
The security I feel when you say you love me,
It is incomparable, beyond expression
So let me try to express this in a language we know, the language of love
Let me tell you with all of myself that
I LOVE YOU
Just tell me you'll be my friend forever
And that you'll never leave me.
There it shines high above
Like a mysterious star
In a night clouded with despair,
The hope of reaching you.
And I set sail into the unknown
Pushing into depths unseen
Master of hope, my vessel
Battered by storms of doubt.
The roaring ocean daunts me
Tossing at me waves of despair
The sky is shrouded in a melancholy veil
But the star shines with a sibylline light.
Like a blossom in the midst of autumn
Like a bud in the biting winter
Like a fresh spring in an endless desert
Is the hope of gaining you for me.
In this cruel war of love
I am a knight clad in yearning hope
I know not rejoice nor mirth
Until I win or die a valiant death.
So will this story be told
Like a lore f...
He walked until his legs gave in and could walk no more
And he cried that night like he never did before
How he craved to win her heart
Though life was tearing him apart
He felt he was hit by a boulder
When she gave him a cold shoulder
He tried to walk away from this cold hearted world
While tears in his eyes like rivers swirled.
And that night when fate won over love
He cried like he never did before
He walked until his legs gave in
And could walk no more.
The clouds gather
A spark lits up the sky for a moment
A thunder rumbles
Drops of water touch the soil
And I close my eyes and go back
Back to those days
The day when my eyes saw you
Like a princess in scarlet
And a spark that's ignited in me
I wanted to be your prince
But it was not to be
When you chose my dearest brother
I swore I'd be a knight
I thought I'd protect you both
But you were wrecking each other's hearts
Tearing yourselves apart
And there I stood helpless and in tears
When I was pushed away
Was I in oblivion?
Was I dreaming?
You were like a rose and yet like a thorn
I couldn't let you harm me anymore
So I've decided to pull away
After my queen asked me to do so.
And I be...
The most beautiful girl.
You lit up my life with your ever glowing love.
You lifted up my spirit with that never ending care.
Well, how can I say how much I love you?
You know any sentence will be a common one if it has only one of us. So why don't we be together and make the line of our love an unbelievable surprise.
What is friendship if it isn't you and me?
And where is loneliness if there is you and me?
