Undying

His fear is evident;

we’ve been waiting so long,

many times unable to hold on.

Our paths, crossed and crossed but never seemed to align,

no matter how much we searched,

we could never each other find.

Now we’re here face to face,

but no one knows what choice to make or if we should just let it all fade.

But the memories are buried deep inside,

begging that we don’t let them die.

We’ve survived too much to give up now,

but the question always remains and that is how?

How do we let go of all the scars traced across our hearts?

Those scars that at night tear us apart. He’s the one I’ve been searching for all this time,

not knowing he’s been here all along,

tied to the notion that we belong.

If only we could let go of all the hurt and all the pain,

maybe we could erase our mistakes

and finally mend all the heartbreaks.

But his fear is evident

and theres not much I can do,

except maybe say,

I’ve always loved you.

Tortured Love

Broken-old-house.jpgImage:compassionatekozhikode.in

Somehow you always seem to find a way to leave me behind broken and alone, waiting for you to come home.

I rock myself to sleep with the feeling that I’m cheap.

Never good enough for you to turn your ways, never fight and stay, always walk away.

So once again I’m left picking up the pieces, of all the boys who broke my soul.

Yet for some reason, I’m still waiting for you to come home.

Hoping that somewhere deep inside your heart, you truly don’t want to be apart.

Making a silent prayer for you to come back and tell me you’re sorry you lost your track.

But my hope is always in vain, because your heart, I can not tame.

I’m starting to go insane, I don’t like this game.

You revive me just to kill me again.

I’m lost between what is now and what was then.

Maybe I should just let you go, it’s clear; you are not coming home.
