YOU

The way you loved yourself so biasedly
Wish I could do that to myself a little too…

Having an innocent face, you planned your way in like a sly fox without giving any invitation,
Wish I had a little bit of psychic intuition to predict your cruel intention…

Psychologically situations were drenching me, depression was only around;
Thought you were my true friend, battling in the same ground.

Who knew you were the one, who cunningly laid out blades, identical to grasses…
How did you forget all those kind sacrifices and emotional embraces?!

You tried to convince me that I’m the messed up one, efforts of mine was never good enough according to your observance;
Breaking me was your ultimate goal just to succeed on your mission of dominance.

Wasn’t a fool so you proved your determination in the toughest way possible, in the beginning of our riddle;
Gradually earned my trust only to crush me in the middle?!
Still remember your speech on being ’real’,
Used to admire how authentic you were and ideal!

Alas!

Yes, for you, you succeeded on your ill will!
But wait, that won’t last long….
Yes, go and give yourself a pat on the back, celebrate!
But wait, that didn’t last long….

Air of Melancholy

Why is the air of melancholy isn’t going away?
It’s spring but the flowers in the backyard aren’t indulging as they sway.

What is so tormenting that keeps a vibrant soul in the dark?
When this is the time to sing along with the playful lark.

That brutal ticking clock, keeps on ticking but waits for none;
Is it even worth it to dwell on times that couldn’t withstand the harshness of the sun?

Thoughts: Life is really short within a blink of an eye time slips through and days gradually create decades.
Wouldn’t it be rational to hope for the good, to smile while being kind, to fight towards negativity, to do the part a human supposed to do and leave the rest in Almighty’s hand?
Live more, worry less.
