Say You Love Me

For convincing myself has been harder lately,
Without you near,
Distant from me lately
I need reassurance
To get myself by.

For the shadows of the past linger on,
While you’re away
I miss your embrace
The confidence it gives
To risk another try.

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.

The Guy of Sixteen

Its been three years since I wrote this poem. Actually, I decided to post it here in my WordPress site, because I started compiling my old poems from my Multiply Site, which I plan to deactivate next year.

Here goes:

I learned a lot, from the guy of sixteen
from the moment he entered my life’s silverscreen
His stories, nice, both from here and afar
While mine were daydreams and wishing upon a star

He taught me to calm, this playful heart of mine
With his corny jokes ev’rything turned out fine
Whenever I’m down, he would share his smile
And i find my afternoons seemingly worthwhile

But then there were times, I felt he was ‘cold’
Simply telling me– emotions must not hold
Because he’s not mine, yes, not mine alone
And I say this, my friends, in a contented tone.

Time would come, that he must too, go away
Like the summer sun, it must shine another day
I do not know when, I do not know how
But i am very sure to say
That this guy of sixteen became a close one to me.. today.

Confused inside, uncertain true.
At times like these, I’m but a fool
Lost his way and with no clue
I get so pissed and lose my cool.

Because you’re yes and then you’re no.
But, which was do we really go?
Here we are, gon’ back and fro
Yet why can’t I just leave you so?
Crazy like never before>
But there’s nothing I could do
Got me thinking more and more
>And now I’m falling fast for you.
