A Fortnight and a Day

A love that was all too soon
I guess, as early as it is.
Our hopes, in candlewax wings
Melted way before it could’ve soared high.

But the same heat of Summer’s day
Would’ve set a clay pot dry
Cemented what could have been
The perfect “You and I”

But alas, a fortnight and a day
The dream has fallen, and truth be taken
The dream lies splendid in good sleep
And all of these in tears I weep

Caffeine Veins

Keep me awake, just one more sip
Repressing things I hide too deep
The downside has been way to steep
The nightmares I get in my sleep.

My eyes dilate, my heart beats fast
And I flip through the pages past –
The hauntings that left me aghast
And memories I wished would last.

Should I settle for just one more?
This addiction rooted to the core
Has left me longing, like before
Though biiter tastes have left me sore.

Keep me awake, just one more sip
I stop the tears I try to keep
This has dragged us way too deep
And I should grab myself some sleep.

Why Do I Love You?

Why do I love you?
When I’m here and you’re away?
For our love fears no boundaries
Every single day.

Why anticipation?
When you’re just some feet away?
For seeing you is magical
I lose my words to say.

Why this painful heartache
When petty quarrels rise?
For when you’re sad, you sweep away
The sparkling in my eyes.

But, why do I still love you?
Why, what’s the question for?!
For when you came into my life
It’s never much like before.
