If we spoke how we used to,
And thought how we used to,
This distance wouldn’t be so big.
If only we weren’t so close,
This distance wouldn’t be so big.
There goes my head swimming away
Into the light waves of shining yellow,
Calm tranquility descends upon earth
Enveloping all worries in fuzzy mellow.
The breeze caresses my warm cheeks
And takes along a whirlwind of leaves;
Exasperated, I run and chase after
The elusive beauty like wretched thieves.
But the devious thing waltzes higher
Above to unveil a sight more majestic
– Sultry round moon lazes idly amid
Dark clouds like empress of ecliptic.
My weightless body now glides through,
Drawing in closer to the sound of music,
The ripples of happiness ignite my being
With some mysterious magical trick.
Oh I swear Divine Providence knows!
For He sends forth a stellar downpour,
Unleashing His wonder on fiery souls
And leaving all asking for nothing more.
The beaming faces flock together to
Dance and drench in rain of euphoria,
Turning themselves in to the charge
Of pulsating beats of electronic genre.
Off we sail away into the ocean of unity
– A distant sea with no bounds or ends,
This world is a beautiful place wherein
Friends are friends and foes are friends.
A gal with beauty and fine veneer
Visage serene, manner sincere
Smile so warm, and speech so clear
A shot of mirth, a dose of cheer
Look closer, what you see here?
A wretched soul with mighty fear.
Fear? Is it so what you say?
Oh yes, you’d see her rock and sway
Now near and now away
Getting rigid, giving leeway
Wanting to have it all her way
Yet mellowing down anyway.
What’s the fear? Tell me more
It lies within, at the very core
Locked inside, in safe store.
Only at times, she lets it pour,
Fiercely hunting for the cure
In the ocean, on the shore.
Oh I wonder what’s the reason…
Well you see, she tasted treason;
Onslaught of the bitter season
Gave her dark and deep lesion
Clouded matters and decision,
Blurring all her lucid vision.
Is there more or is that all?
More my dear, out there’s a wall
Rough and barbed, and jagged and tall
What lies ahead is many a fall
Stakes are high and margins small
It was always tough, now I recall.
Oh don’t you riddle! What made her mope?
Her love left when she lit her hope
Broken, she could just not cope
So she stretched her arm to grope
For things that were once in her scope
At last, she won and caught the rope.
Is it so? Then why the jitters?
She knows that he is yet not hers
Trust is weak and doubt just stirs
Negotiations follow every verse
Hopes do gather, but then disperse
She frets all day and drums her fingers.
I see… The concern seems legit
You see, his love has a limit
He will not go beyond to fit
In the frame, and submit.
He’d rather choose to stop and quit
Than lose his pride and his wit.
Does she have any such bar?
Oh yes, though it may sound bizarre
The door of prospect stands ajar.
Bound by laws, whatever they are,
It could just shut on fate star
Dousing her fire, planting a scar.
Well, what about a compromise?
It can be reached if one tries
Both of them weigh the price
– there the lows, here the highs.
What a pity if their love dies!
Mourning will fill the crimson skies.
Oh sweet love of mine!
My joy, my hope, my sunshine
Tell me what’s holding you back
Come, cross over the border line.
Reach out when you feel low,
Shout out and let me know
I’ll be patient, I’ll be kind
I’ll stand by if you let me though.
I may not heal but I will understand
So let me in to the forbidden land
What is it that pulls you down?
Don’t you worry, I’ll have your hand.
The fear creeps up on me too
And the dread turns me blue
Then I look around
And in a crowd of many, I see you.
Some things just don’t go away
I know, I feel the same way
We can fix a few of them
For others, lets just hope and pray.
The thing to remember here
Is that you have me, oh dear!
I’ll wait for you to make me
A part of your ache and cheer.
Sometimes I can’t help but wonder
How does all the storm and thunder
Cloud our love
And split us asunder.
Then at other times I think
That divine must be our link
Hence we’ve come so far
Miles ahead in a flash and blink!
