Echoing Silences

If I lose you, my love
I'm scared, not of
Years wasted
And neither shall I
Find myself unable to live without you

[I'll be strong and move on
And all that, you know!]

What does scare me, love
Is the thought of
My dreams, trashed -
Rendered pointless
Of pain excruciating,
But meaningless
Of a pain that will
Fade away with time -
Like a fading rag in the sun

There are things you're not supposed to
Talk objectively about
And I dread being talked of
Objectively - as your past
Like a long-forgotten taste of
Vanilla flavored coffee

And, sunshine, don't let my memory
Come as a lump of guilt
Or a pang of heartache
Or a moment of sundown
Let it play in the twitch of your smile

And promise me,
That a part of me will continue to live in you
And I swear, that
A part of you shall forever be in my soul.

Kanupriya said...

permanent sanyas lene ka to koi iraada nahin hai :)

jj said...

hum bhi aisi hi aasha karte hain ki likhna chalu hoga phir se kabhi

काश लम्हों की पेर्छियाँ होती, एक तुम रखती एक मेरे पास होतीं.
कुछ दिल के पास होती ,कुछ रूखे पतझड़ की तेरह बेजान होती.

आप की बरी ..
