So today, I fore-see
what tomorrow my world shall be
free from your ignorance
and all of my care,
the feelings can be buried
of which you weren't aware.

Free from the shackles
that would bind us through times of hell,
for the concern I had
were never perceived well.

I shall now let
the shallow painless night end;
forget the love,
you didn't even deserve to be my friend.
You walked
leaving behind the seasons Grey
And I kept sitting below the lone tree
while you partied away.

This is it, I see the end,
of the pretense, the heartless emotionless struggle
To get you back, to be yours
of togetherness, of snuggle..

At the end, I just regret
wishing for the time when we had met
hoping that you would be the one
to wipe my tears
hold me tight
say, "darling, it ll be alright"
stand by me when days were thin
no care about loss or win

Pack your bags, take off,
you've stayed here too long;
I, meanwhile shall dump the memories
that we cherished all along.
I shall no-more
look at the old oak door,
expect the phone to ring
or Gtalk to ping..
I'm happy we chose different ways
before the love deepened or stayed
for if it had been the other way round
I would have lost my soul, my sky, my ground.

Why is it so hard to let go,
If you ask so,
Only thing to be said by me
would be,
We don't give away our heart everyday,
do we?

Liked your lines and interested in taking the reference (first 6 and last 6) on my blog (frankly speaking, am haven't got expertise in expressing my feelings in the words with rhyme as you did).

So if you permit... (pleaseeeeee)...

Express said...

@ Vivek
Tu toh friend of friend hai re, and you taking lines is only my pleasure.
I'm glad you bothered to notify actually.

2 things though,
I would like if you linked my blog-post too; so that anyone who reads gets an idea of the context I was using.

Thanks for the visit :-)

Vivek said...

Thanks Shatabdi...

Also I have passed your ^5 to 'J'...

Keep Blogging...

Vivek said...

Hey Shatabdi,

Recently come across few lines appeared in a novel finished y'day, and those are perfectly attributed to your post:
"That is why it is so important to let certain things go. To release them. To cut loose.
People need to understand that no one is playing with marked cards; sometimes we win and sometimes we lose.
Don’t expect to get anything back, don’t expect recognition for your efforts, don’t expect your genius to be discovered or your love to be understood. Complete the circle. Not out of pride, inability, or arrogance, but simply because whatever it is no longer fits in your life.
Close the door, change the record, clean the house, get rid of the dust. Stop being who you were and become who you are."

Hope you liked them.

Zahir.. hmm

No, did not enjoy; I'm not too supportive of self-help books. Pardon my bluntness, but I think w/e these have gotta tell us, is already known by us.. saying is easy, its the implementation that matters.

I can argue on this for hours, but choose not to.

& Oh, of course I'll keep blogging.. I'm so regular that I'm surprised you even said that!

Its ME who should be saying that, don't u agree? :P
