The world around me keeps changing,
Like change alone keeps working hard.
No matter how long the wait is,
Or how strong the longing,
I am never forgiven,
Nor treated with kindness.
The bleeding never seems to end, trust me
I've been through the darkest alleys
To come across you
And this better be right.
"The wind never lies" they said
"May be, Not to my cold heart."
It might take a million sunsets for you
To look into my soul,
It would never make a difference.
You may not mend the leaks,
Or heal the scars, or
See right through my heart,
All I want is for you to see
How my insides glow
Every time I think of you.
I feel it getting serious,
Every time your voice blesses my ears,
Stirring depths never explored before.
Like cold winds and the smell of rain,
Endless nights on empty balconies.
How many days did we waste?
How many crowds did my eyes search?
How many valleys did I stare into?
To find your Soul, Oh the pain was sweet too.
Pushed to hold on, betrayal is always cruel.
Forced to leave the door open, Oh wasn't it
The best thing I ever did to myself?
Staying up every night
Fire in my chest blurring my vision
"Where am I headed?"
"Clueless" she warned.
"I would wait a lifetime" I whispered.
Too good to even exist, my mind turns to stone
And my heart takes lead. I bet it knows nothing
About the things that really matter.
But I do know words,
To put them on a string,
To paint my world on paper.
Where sunflowers and stars exist together.
A million years may go by,
I would still stare at you, those eyebrows
And the scar in between.
May be dream of it later.
And grow fond of it.
Let you flow through my veins,
Where wild flowers grow,
Unseen and uncontrolled.
If life has other plans for us
Like it always does,
Know that I am totally at peace with it.
Everything I do brings me to you somehow.
Though we have hardly touched each other's lives
But we did explore the wild lands, that
Never even existed before.
Where there is a stillness to things
Where nothing needs to be said,
Where memories last forever.
They don't need to be defined or understood,
