The Wrong Train

The Wrong Train

lost in his thoughts, he couldn’t think much that morning

lost in his thoughts, he caught the wrong train

still lost in his thoughts, he took a vacant seat

lost in his thoughts, he didn’t see people around

lost in his thoughts, he didn’t know where to get down

lost in his thoughts, didn’t hear the baby crying next to him

lost in his thoughts, he didn’t notice something ticking under his seat

in a moment, a severe explosion hit the train

the man suddenly, woke up from his thoughts

but

 is now lost

in the ashes of the bomb blast

remember? he caught the wrong train

while being lost in his thoughts

When my Loneliness came to Me

When my Loneliness came to Me

as I called for my loneliness

it came to me

I was speechless

stunned

not knowing how to react

I simply embraced it

we both shed a few tears

together we felt lonely again

Loneliness in the Sky

Loneliness in the Sky

A million stars

twinkling together

spreading merry

showing delight

still

how lonely

could the sky become

how gloomy

the grey could ever be

it’s a secret

too deep

only

the Moon

can reveal

together, we were never to sing

together, we were never to sing

a song I meant to sing

I needed him to sing along

shyly indicated my intentions to him

we waited for the music to assist

we waited and kept waiting

were we deaf not to listen to the tune

screaming over and over to us both

assuring the possibility of the impossible

we were not meant to be what we thought

together, we couldn’t write a song

together, we were never to sing

when my loneliness came to me

as i called for it

my loneliness came to me

i was speechless

stunned

hugged it

together we both cried

felt lonely again

o my loneliness – come to me!

o my loneliness – come to me!

o my loneliness

come to me

i shall caress

i shall hold

will never let you

be lonely

anymore

that moment

that moment

the way he looked into her eyes

i knew he made his choice

to choose her over me

that moment

when he let me loose

i knew he will hold her close

he was going to set me free

that moment

in all those moments to come

i saw them dancing

laughing together

and i silently whispered

to my wounded heart

to forgive him

to stop bleeding

 

 

 

 

A Caress so Smooth

A Caress so Smooth

the glitter of lights all day long

flashing cameras all around her 

her fans, screaming in praise

singing along her performance

the fabric of her gown

smooth against her skin

beautifying her looks glorious

flawless face, shining eyes

surrounded by a million followers

towards the end as the show concludes

turning the bright to dull and dark

getting shivers to think of going home

she takes a ride with her loneliness

her hands trembled to unlock the door

no one no more waiting inside

the house is now disturbingly silent

she sinks into the couch, her eyes not blinking

holding a smiling picture of her Mother 

she gave it a caress so smooth

holding it tight against her chest

imagining mother’s gentle kiss on her forehead

she readys to cry for the rest of the night

Loneliness in the Sky

Loneliness in the Sky

A million stars twinkling together

spreading merry, showing delight

still

how lonely could the sky become

how gloomy the grey could ever be

it’s a secret too deep

only

the Moon can reveal

o my loneliness – come to me

o my loneliness – come to me

o my loneliness

come to me

I shall caress

I shall hold

Calling for my loneliness

Calling for my loneliness

in a jungle deep and dense

by the bank of an overflowing  river

under the tree with thousand shadows

surrounded by disturbingly noiseless woods

lost in my own emptiness

i call for my lonliness, to come, see me

for they shall never be able to find us here

 here we shall both rest in peace

O my loneliness, come to me

O my loneliness, come to me

o my loneliness

come to me

i shall caress

i shall hold

will never let you

be lonely

Deafening Sound of the Silence

Deafening Sound of the Silence

deafening sound of the silence

on the other side of the phone

only to confirm

the departure of laughter

mugs of coffee with chocolate muffins

hand holdings and long walks

kisses in movie theaters

deafening sound of the silence

announcing loudly of the loneliness to follow

ONLY HIM lying on the bed

her soft body vanishing

escaping his touch

refusing to be caressed

 

his senses loosing capacity

to hear any kind of music

for he is deafened now

by the deafening sound of the silence

Along came with Fame

Along came with Fame

with fame, along came much more

the glitter of pennies, a thousand followers

a house so big, tough to discover its boundaries

fancy outings, finest wine in those barrels

sexy feminine long dresses with flairs

such heavenly bags and shoes with all heels

this life i thought was worth living

didn’t i crave for it all the time

yet another dark reality that was realized

with fame, came such deep pain

it brought loneliness along with the crowd

it was killing sometimes, the applause

the glorious glory, was it worth my character?

only when i have it now, i am desperate

to be a common girl whom no one recognizes

a girl sipping her coffee in the coffee shop and no one stares

guess now i need a time machine

someone help me, i wanna travel back in time
