Oh Dear Man..tell me..
I shed tears engraved with your name
I find pieces of me seething in pain,
The pieces you touch heave and sigh in your remembrance,
And the parts in oblivion to your soul.. lay still waiting to be asked…
”Would you like a ride to the dawn with me?…Where is it that you belong and what say is your story?”
They shrink in the drought of the long summer haul, blind creatures with a pitiful stature, feeding on pain that trickles down their layers…
But you walk away, back turned, darkening my heart in your shade,
Marked by memories in the scorching shape of your form,
I stand waiting to run, run far away from your scorn,
But stranded I am.. limp , no caves to hide……………..As all are lined along hills of the grieving town..
The town where paths lead astray to the homes of dead hopes, drunken wishes, follies of wants..
You are but a mad man, a wolf.. Fighting like the brave life and death for his pride..
For deeper dreams and friends that that fill your soul..
And I am but the prey of the calls you sound in the moonlight..
I find myself twisting away to seek the fork that finds me at my sun kissed doorstep,
Where I might find you to be a thought of another distant self,
Where light of love might remain a haze without a tryst with its dark shades..
Let me stroll back, do not call me back in time,
Let me forget that I met you on the lone walk one very eerie night,
I was straddled by a sudden bliss..but now the bliss churned with a deadly essence..
The callous reckless wanderlust of unrequited passions…Brimming the chalice of tonight’s spirit..
I find my mind sinks into yours with a penchant to read thee like a manuscript about all that is life…
Oh dear man, tell me… where shall I seek your heart..
Else show me the route to that moment before..years ago..then I shall escape to find mine in whole..
