Lost in reality!

Posted on May 10, 2010 in Short Stories & Poems

Tanaya Singh:

It is a lust to wander,

A lust to be the only one,

A lust to brood and ponder,

A lust to stare at the setting sun.

I was dazed by your beatific smile,

Wish I had taken less than a while….

You were just purlicue away,

Why didn’t I ask you to stay?

You said I live in my dreams….

I was a lot happier there it seems,

You were gone like an errant breeze…

And I am still here, waiting to freeze.

Your words keep recurring like plangent bells,

Deep within me your memory dwells…

I have been wandering for what seems like yore,

Ever since you said, you don’t want me anymore.

Here I am on this humungous plain,

Yanked out of my dreams, I feel insane.

I was out in the search of clarity,

But now I find myself lost in the world of reality.

It was a lust to wander,

A lust to be the only one,

A lust to brood and ponder,

A lust to stare at the setting sun.
