Regret Rendition

dusty roads, scattered lives
memories captured in forever smiles
looking back, just a little peek
realise what I’ve lost, thinking its a win

i reach out, but too late, i can’t go back even though i try

i’m walking down a line
where there’s no turning back
a teardrop in my eye
but no one by my side, to pat my tears dry

broken windows, during play
i play it back now, all i can say
all those things that i tried to hide
i want them back now, in my life

i went back, but the doors closed, i can’t bring back even though i try

i’m walking down a line
where there’s no turning back
a teardrop in my eye
but no one by my side, to pat my tears dry

there came a time, i thought i got back
some of it that had went away
when u smiled, but, then it all changed
when i saw that ring on your finger
guess twas silly of me, to think that
you would wait for a long lost stranger

oh why I’ve walked down a line
where there’s no turning back
a teardrop in my eye
but no one by my side, to pat my tears dry

TWELVE MONTHS

It all started in January

You passed me by

I heaved a sigh

You stole my breath

I can’t deny

With February came the epic day

You stood by with a piercing gaze

My heart stopped and skipped a beat

you came and ask ‘”will you go out with me ?”

 Image

Days passed by and before we knew

March had come with all its dew

One fine morning you called me up

Proposed to me your undying love

 

April breezed in, unnoticed

in seventh heaven we both lived

Hugs and kisses, holding hands

Slowly and surely brewed romance

 

In May things heated up

Fighting shouting crying enough

You told me stuff you had not meant

Heck, even I did the same

 Image

Things were the same even in June

By now we knew this was love’s rule

Ignoring the hurt buried the ego

With just faith we went with the flow

 

With July came playful rain

Washed away the sinful pain

It was April all over again

Love triumphed with some help from rain

 Image

September was a messy month

Some of your “secrets” were unearthed

My friends told me you were seeing her

The girl you’d dumped last summer

 

Streaks of doubt in the heart

October had a morbid start

Confrontations did take place

The truth made my heart to break

 Image

November and its chilly winds

Loosened all the bonding strings

It was hard to hold on

Big fat tears were rolling down

 

December brought the epic end

We parted ways my dear friends

He with her and me alone

Life moved on but very slow

 

Twelve months of fruitless love

Twelve months of pointless pain

Moments lost in a dreamworld

Only to find them washed away
