December

It was just going to be a painful continuation of the months prior
Of brimming doubt and self pity
Of endless nights and long days
Of dark shadows and nightmares.

It was five days into December
When things took a turn.
I wont lie, I did resist.
Did it work? Hardly a week, 
May be two?

Someone just walked into my Winter
Slow at first, like the summer rains,
Its probably a dream till date, 
One I never wish to wake up from.

It changed about everything that I thought I knew
About me, about pain, about life.
I saw sunshine and rainbows, would have named
Unicorns too, if I wasn't in my mid twenties.

It burned away reality, redefined it,
Made me stare at sunsets,
Crave for chocolate ice cream?
Days when a yellow leaf amazed me for hours.

I remember every single exchange
For a month every song I heard was about those eyes,
Hoping that what's meant to be, will be.
Realising I didn't need ages to replace what I gave away.

It's a long wait, and its okay.


The Sunflowers

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.

"Nothing is an accident" never did I
Believe in that, and you came by.
Right in front of my eyes..
This 'whatever you would like to call it' between us
US making me turn red.
Two souls don't circle each other either,
By accident. I know..
Its dreamy, its complicated.
But I am going to let it stay
Probably grow old in its memory.
Let it bloom in places its not allowed to.
