Dark Blue 4

Every time I went away from you, it did rain,
Tears long gone came back to me with disdain!
I wanted to walk back to you to the place,
Where hearts beat and footsteps fell together with grace!
Where there was eternal sunshine and inherited bliss,
Where raindrops were pearls and life a chocolate kiss!

Every time I came back to you, it was a walk so pure!

Every time I thought I could have loved you more,

Reality conspired and heart breaks made me sore!

I wanted to walk back to you to the time,
When emotions were crystals and two hearts rhyme!
When skies were shrinking and stars flickered in our hands,
When sea shells were love charms and time trapped in the sands!

Every time I realized your love, I wanted a lifetime back!

Every time I dream of you, I see my sprawling innocence,
Eyes closed I walk light years into my road to reminiscence!
I wanted to walk with you all the distance I still have to go,
How do I turn the nightmares to dreams and highs to low?
How do I stop the setting sun and swan songs to lullabies?
How do I hush up the chaos and stretch mortality to eternities?

Every time I take the poison, I come close to my valentine!



The rains have stopped,  the tears have dried

The walk seems too long.

The hearts don’t breathe,

the footsteps mismatch

Its inherited loss and death kisses.

Emotions are broken glass,

the skies are too distant

The stars fell like morning dews.

Sea shells are empty,

and sands no more hold on to time

The innocence is lost.

The walk strewn with thorns,

dreams love-struck

Goodbye reminiscence

The sun sets in the east,

where it should have risen

No one sings the lullabies.

Mortality is humane,

eternities are divine

Poisons are no more valentines!

About Dream Peddler

The author finds too many similarities with himself and the boy Calvin. Although a cold blooded techie, working with an Indian software MNC, the finer things of love and life fascinates him. Major portions of his work are about the things that inspires and pacifies. Politics and society too get a chance.
