Each raindrop that hits the window glass, it fills up the room with a sudden melancholy. Here I am, silent, trying to hear what the noises are about. People say love strikes you like lightening, a sudden wave rushes down your spine, ecstasy fills the air you breathe and you go singing all day long. Falling in love is like a fairy tale coming true. Each moment you wish that person to be right next to you. She is the first thought in the morning, the smile that persists on your lips and the last kiss of the night. She is a lifetime with a happy ending.Yet I’m trying to figure out the essence of everything, her innocence is what troubles me the most. He first saw her on a moon light. Soon a foreign emotion clouds his eyes…
He ‘was welcomed with her eyes
He gazed at her so much,
Her beauteous brown almond eyes
Made him melt…
He said it will work out,
Though she had her doubts.
He climbed inside her skin
And made all the promises
He made castles beside the sea
Little did she know those castles were of mud.
He didn’t leave till she said yes.
The sands of time slipped by,
She fell in love the day he fell out of it….
All the promises he made
Stood like a double headed sword
Ripping her mind and soul apart
Demons stole her breaths, she survived.
Denials pounded through her mind,
Emptiness echoed through her heart
Moments were filled with pain
She still fell for him every morning.
Time flew,wedding bells ringing.
She kept the vows. She knew what it meant to say “yes”.
When they said ‘Love is what that binds you both’,
She wondered was that ‘love’ that suffocated her?
He bent down to slide the ring in her finger. He smiled.
He was cold as ice,
She couldn’t find love in his eyes.
Darkness covering her like a blanket
Gliding deep in to her thoughts,
Yet she smiled back.
Both carried the weight of the ring forever
With no fairy tale ending…
