Unless

Loving someone was easy.
Being passionate was easier.
But, making the same mistakes over and over
Was the easiest one, probably.
And I realised,
Each time I failed to reach my goal,
I could hear the sound of humiliation.
Each time I slept with a new person,
I lost another chance of my redemption.
Each night I clutched my pillow,
I longed for someone warm.
Every second I wasted for my long lost past,
I knew that the time won’t run back.
And now I guess that,
Unless you know the pain,
Pleasure can never find you.
Unless you feel the void,
Yearning can never embrace you.
Unless you face the fear,
Courage can never lift you.
Unless you drop the tears,
Joy can never come to you.

Out of sight, out of mind

You said, “It’s out of my mind,
As soon as it is out of my sight.”
Keeping my head on your lap
I sighed, “Same”, I replied.

The evening was dark as well,
Like the nature of our relationship.
The sky poured the same that night,
As my tears would drip.

The day you smelled the same; euphoric,
As Sweet as the musk of Moschus,
And your touch was the same erotic
As the carvings of Khajuraho temples.
That evening your breath was addictive,
Like the intoxicating smell of dendrite.
And I could not stop you from kissing,
Though I knew the relationship was a toxin.

And the venom still runs through my veins,
Making my every night blurry as hell.
You were always honest about yourself.
But I kept lying to myself.
As I know, forever
You will be out of my sight.
But I Know,
You are still not out of my mind.
