The Saga: Part 1 - A Perfect Decade

You carry away with you a part of me,

a reflection of me…

If I loved you, it must be because at some time,

We both shared same feelings, same emotions, same stage…

It was September, autumn of ’97,

The breeze was easy, cool and nice,

She was standing on her porch,

Eyes glittering bright,

I was drowning in the most blissful of sights,

She was truly an angel from the paradise.

A mere glimpse of her’ could take my breath away,

I waited ages for her glimpse everyday,

So that by any fate, I could find the nerves,

And say to her, what I ever wanted to say,

I don’t know why I waited so long,

For one moment, that never came,

Instead came the moment, when I have to leave,

Leaving behind those ever cherishing memories, those moments of bliss,

I wish you could know, how it feels, having been denied your sweetest plea.

All these years, my feelings, my thoughts,

Just amplified the pain,

And all those heartbeats passed away in vain,

Fighting within, trying to get the best of the beast,

I kept my faith going, even in the most thunderous of sleets,

My friends, they told me,

“Look bro! These distant relationships,

Usually don’t work out”,

I felt my face smirking,

I wished they could know how deep is this urge, this sprout.

They say love is eternal, a special bond, poetry of senses,

Then why couldn’t she listen to the melody of dissonance;

coming straight from my heart, from its broken pieces,

I always wished she could know, how much I loved her,

How strong is her softest whisper….

I thank her, for being there in my dreams, every night,

Probably it’s the only thing I’m left with, that ounce of delight,

I was crushed at every doorstep, to say the least,

I fought hard, down to my last breath,

But I couldn’t kill the beast,

To pick the ultimate stairway was tough,

But I went for it,

To total the wasted time of utter guff,

Or may be I’m not blessed enough.

Ah! It’s September again, but this is 2007,

And here I’m,

Remembering her shimmering eyes, her wholesome grace,

I’m trying hard but couldn’t forget that pretty face,

She’ll never know, what I ever wanted to say,

I have this desire burning deep inside, since we separated,

I heard something in my heart, sound of a bell,

I’m thinking to myself, this can’t be heaven but can surely be hell,

The breeze is as pleasant as ever under the velvet sky,

Autumn is at its paramount, no traces of sigh,

Here I’m recalling the memories from the past,

Trying to find my long lost facet,

With a broken heart, wrapping up, a perfect decade.

22 turns in this roller coaster, yet...:

Nice to know that you are a cricket fan too :D.
Which team are you supporting anyways?
Don't ask for my fav. team. I'm too confused to pick one. :P

PS: Throw some light on that Siddhu-BMS-Dictionary thing :s

Creation said...

Dunno who I'm supporting. Chennai played well, certainly.... but let's see who wins the match.. then I'll let you know I was pitching for.
