Torn

Walking along that familiar stretch
Times gone by, reflect in my mind
Smiles, whispers, moments shared
And then, regret, for being so blind

Blind for believing in fantasies
Naïve for trusting a lying snake
Crazy enough to fall in love
Foolish to put myself at stake

Locked myself in an illusion
Lived a façade for so long
With your honeyed words and false charm
Couldn’t place right from wrong

Then the bubble burst suddenly
And reality stepped in
But it was already too late
You’d already sunk your teeth in

You clawed at my trust, ripped my heart out
Hacked away my love, and slaughtered my soul
I whimpered, as life ebbed away
Betrayed, I let death take its toll

Days, months, years passed
The pain is still etched within
Still trying to let go of the past
Still trying, to live again...

...oh don't be so bare...why need to be bare?
oak trees haunt...but rains will shudder.
void is before n' void is after..
the storm shall rise n' pass you dear.
nature don't discriminate
the wind shall caress
both the flowers n' the ashes
the windmill moves
the shepherds still wander..
so why get lost in the mystic sea?

i used to roam in a lonely island..
seekin for the truth n' for the freedom.
the stream i used to sit across
showed me calmness as well as the reflection of the clouds.
no matter how hard the ice remains
finally it melts n' flows across.
i say those tears are the proof..that the snow is gettin off
look above you...there is sunshine all around.


p.s. cheer up lady!...you know i don't like when i see you in this kind of mood...or else who will cheer me up...i know i'm bein selfish...but that's how i'm..no point in hidin my real self...now lemme see your smile dumbo!! did you hear that?? **he shouts at her**

Still trying, to live again...

Believe me! It's not that difficult, that you try so hard to do it.

Mirage said...

Pople, people! This is only a poem, that has absolutely nothing to do with me or my life... its all fiction!!

Mirage said...

The Phoenix said...

Well written,that poem.I see a lot of speculation in the comments that people have posted,about what the poem really means.And yet,only you would know what it really means.
Checked out some of your older posts too.Goa is heaven on earth isn't it?

is this the latest hep thing to do? no more prose, writing poems?
waise y such a gloomy poem? is it for real or is it fiction?
aisa pratit ho raha hai ki aapke dil mein bahut dard chipa hai.
BTW the story might be fiction, but there ought to be some reason for u to pen it down...
before i forget I've tagged you

Mirage said...

@ze exaggerator: Sure does. Its easier to hide the pain, but its so damn tough to forget it...
Thnx 4 visiting!

MS said...

nice melancholy ;)
just this came to my mind when I read ur poem,I dont really know y ::))


woke up
opened the window
a tiger was out there
roared
"where are all those cars and noises
I used to see?"
the tiger convulsed with rage
moved around
showed off her bloody teeth
fear got the better of me
the leaves trembled
the silence broke
the tiger sallied
...
