Only Green Grass Grows

I’ve been watering the grass,We once bowed in this land of ours.But it floods my cottage every night,While you remain out of sight. And I think we both know,Only green grass grows.The rain has come once again,But everything else has changed. I have waited for the butterflies that never came,The time is past us, this…

If I Were The Sky

If I were the sky,My hues would changeFrom dusk till dawn,And the world would embrace meFor who I was.I wouldn’t have to fit inFor the world would be mine,The stars would come to play with me;I wouldn’t feel lonely in the silent hours of night. If I were the sky,Distance wouldn’t be my enemy.I’d love…

The Season Of Change

Fallen leaves and barren twigs,Death of flowers and homeless bees.With April comes a funeral,Of a spring, too full of love. The trees speak in a wiser breeze,The land is old, the Sun hard to see.And I welcome the season of change,With bright lights and champagne. For now, I’ve found harmony,In the cries of nature trying…

When The Evergreens Dried

I’d see you in the church with a basket in my hands,Always filled with candies or handmade paperbacks.And I’d fix your hair and call you by names,Our giggles echoed through the highest mountains. Our most beautiful craft lies engraved on a terrace,Maybe one of my accord would touch it and feel our whispers.Our lost dreams…

Until I Fall In Love

Let’s laugh together at every ‘The Office’ reference we make,Adore the wildflowers in our backyard and give them a name.We’ll breathe in the colours of our auras, both light and dark,And on days you go colorblind, I promise I’ll show you the stars.Hold me like a cup of wine, fill me with your taste divine;Let’s…

Pick Your Poison

What if I told you that the dream you’re chasingWill consume you like a bottle of cherry wine,But will leave you intoxicated?That the fire burning in your eyes is not of a PhoenixBut of a cigarette?The puffiness in your chest is of smoke and not pride?That your mind is wrapped around an essence of dignity,While…

Decay of Illusion

I fixated my eyes on the clouds above.The road where I drove was an illusion,Where I refuse to be; the noise cuts like a knifeBut to fear death, is to fear life.

Ones With Rusted Chords

Music plucking the chords rusted,My whole piano is in sync.I am free, I am free,When I pass that Lilac tree.“God knows I tried”,Worn out soul, like a leaf dried.Misty mornings of December,I hope you remember, you remember;The nights when we told ourselves,“Party girls don’t get hurt”.All those days the books in my shelves,Waited to be…

Unwoven

Turbulence of thoughts when sets,Causes me to pick up my pen.Weaving my words into a seatbelt,While I am on board with Hell. Calm flights of tranquility greet me,The land below would hate my departure.The birds outside sing of joy and leave,But I can’t render my heart to ink. Happiness sits beside me and I say,Laments…

Wallflower

My eyes have been observant enough to catch you smiling at your friend who lookedgorgeous in that blue dress and they know you got drunk that night, your friendswanted more. How you loved the disco lights and new year nights, that Indian popand regional rock.I know you were trying to get a decent picture of…
