Long As I live

There is a rumour that
You have abandoned me
Gone to a greener pasture
And do not, even, remember me
I have no control so to say
My love over your loyalty
I am a simple, poor girl
You know I’m no royalty
But I feel very much wounded
By your callous indifference
I never imagined you would have
The money as your preference
For me love is like worship
I’ve put you on a pedestal
Day and night thinking of you
Is akin to pure religious ritual
Whatever other people may say
I will always go on loving you
Whether you love me or not, that
Does not matter in my view
My love would last forever
Beloved I’ll never forget you
I hope that you come back to me
And fill my life with myriad hues.

 

Fallen Angel

I am an ambitious person
On highest goal is my eye
I want to fly and soar high
I want to reach the sky
You came into my world
And put me on cloud nine
It was a serendipity
You said that you are mine
But then you turned away
I’ve no clue what went wrong,
My life got obliterated
I thought that I was strong
But I have got week knees
I’m crying out my heart
This is a tough situation
My world has fallen apart
I know that in the beginning
It was an infatuation
He seemed perfect to me,
Life was a celebration
But now I know that he is
A fallible guy with faults
Still I really love him
From the bottom of my heart
Love does not put conditions
It never becomes judgmental
There’s no reason, no logic,
It’s only sentimental
