absence in presence
Paras Bajaj Sep 9
She gave everything;
to the one who lives miles away.
She took everything;
from the one who lives near.

She is light;
to the one who likes the darkness.
She is dark;
to the one who likes her spark.

She played along;
with the one who always wins.
She won;
against the one who can't see her lose.

She fell in love;
with the one that never tried.
She fell in hate;
with the one that never lied.

Her heart is warm;
for the one who don't care.
Her heart is cold;
for the one who is always there.

waste of time
Paras Bajaj Jul 25
no one is ready to come close,
everyone is afraid of getting hurt.
deep down, no one knows what they want
yet everyone is trying to wash away the dirt.

no one is ready to climb your walls,
everyone is afraid of falling down.
deep down, no one knows how to reach
yet everyone is trying to win the crown.

no one is ready to accept who you are,
everyone is afraid of what might they see.
deep down, no one knows what to show
yet everyone is trying to perceive what they believe.

sometimes
Paras Bajaj Jul 20
sometimes you want to stay
and love them till they feel it.
sometimes you want to leave
and hurt them till they feel it.

sometimes you want to lie
so they won’t say goodbye.
sometimes you want to die
so they don’t have to try.

sometimes you want to wait
even though they won’t reach.
sometimes you want to run away,
afraid of the lessons they would teach.

around you
Paras Bajaj Jul 17
around you I feel so different
like I am in another dimension,
but nowhere to look and go,
just lost and waiting to be loved.

around you I feel so high
like I am on several drugs,
but not hallucinating,
only dreaming of you.

around you I have tangled thoughts
like if I would speak and won’t stop,
but cannot say it to you cause’
nothing is going to change, you know?

makes you the one in power
then you are so wrong cause'
you are just another piece

if you think leaving you
makes me constantly sad,
then you are so wrong cause'
you are just another story
that I left unsaid.

unreachable
Paras Bajaj Jul 8
will you hold on to me
even if I won't be around?
will you listen to my voice  
even if I won't make a sound?

will you still love me
when I won't be so lovable?
will you still reach out
when I won't be reachable?

will you even miss me
if I won't ever call?
will you try to find me
when I won't like to be found?

will you still save me
when I won't like to be saved?
will you still fix my pieces
if I won't be that brave?

you've been trying too hard to fall in love,
but when love comes to you in pieces;
you walk away thinking it isn't enough.

you've been trying to find someone mature,
but when stability comes in your life;
you find it boring in the first place.

you've been trying to fill your voids,
but when warmth tries to touch you;
you refuse it because you are cold.

you've been trying to find perfection,
but no one is perfect and no one will be
yet you don't care who is there cause'
what's available to you isn't worthy.

the smile on your face,
it doesn't look so real.
your heart looks like
an empty space;
do you remember
how to feel?

the small lies in your big eyes,
I don't believe what they say.
do you even have any friends
or you pushed them all away?

the softness in your voice,
it sounds heavy to my ears.
how long do I have
before you disappear?

rest in peace
Paras Bajaj Jun 26
a few days ago you were doing just fine
and all of a sudden you became a star.
I couldn't bid goodbye
cause' I didn't know
you were going that far.

Wherever you are, I hope
you are resting in peace.
Wherever you are, know that
my love for you will never cease.

I will move on from one to another
or maybe will stay alone till we meet
and up there if you are wondering
how will I find you with my frozen feet,
then don't forget that I still remember your heartbeat.

power of love
Paras Bajaj Jun 16
his head is a complicated place
where the thoughts of her never leave,
but only the thought of her;
reminds him to breathe.

his soul is empty and dark
or all alone will he ever be
but only the light in her eyes;
reminds him that he is free.

his heart is as black as night,
yet he always fails to act blind
cause' only the warmth of her;
reminds him to be kind.

friends no more
Paras Bajaj Jun 6
now that we are not friends anymore,
I hope you would keep my secrets secure.
now that we won't ever meet again,
I hope it would only keep us sane.

all the new places we won't ever explore,
I wish to walk away wasn't my only cure.
all the best food we won't ever eat together,
but I am sure you would find someone better.

I am sorry for all the times
I've asked you to love me back
and I don't blame you at all
because compassion is all we lack.

and if you are worried about
me going behind your back.
rest assured my friend
I won't ever dare to do that.

I don’t want to see,
whatever you post.
I don’t want to know,
in whose arms you’re lost.

I don’t even care,
if you’re behind or ahead.
I don’t even care,
if you’re alive or dead.

I don’t want to hear,
only lies you would tell.
I don’t want to be there,
but I do wish you well.

I don’t even care,
if you’re behind or ahead.
I don’t even care,
if you’re alive or dead.

you have turned my life upside down

Our conversations are getting shorter,
our phone calls are disappearing.  
goodbyes are turning into silence.
Forever is turning into a lot shorter.
Faith is getting smaller,
love is getting weaker.
Heart is lost,
friendship is dying.

I hope it will not hurt your ego cause'

That's love too.
Paras Bajaj Apr 27
When you have to
stay away from them
and always just be quiet.

When you are in the darkness,
but forever wishing them light.

When you have to get
over them and move on.
When you are the weakest,
but always trying to be strong.

When you have to forgive
them for  not giving you
what you deserved.

When you have to understand
that sometimes you are
just never enough.

When you have to pretend
that you are fine without
them and act cold.

When you have to pretend
that you are nothing,
but brave and bold.

When you have to pretend
that you are always happy and high,
but deep down, only you know,
it's a lie.

All the pain
that you go through.
Believe me,
that's love too.

We will heal

We will heal

Contractions
Paras Bajaj Apr 21
I don’t know how to fix it.
I don’t know how to end it.
There are so many things that I do not like
and our friendship seems a distant strike.
Lately it has brought me stress and tears.
Completely fake? That’s all what I fear.
We’re all busy and I always understand,
but I am stuck within and cannot pretend.
I don’t know how to react over it.
I don’t know if I should stay or go.
There are so many things I want to discuss,
but I cannot tell what you already know.
I don’t know why you have become different.
I thought you were not like the rest.
I don’t know why you have become ignorant.
I thought you were one of the best.
Am I cursed
or am I blessed?
Are we still friends
Or this is the end?
Did your memories fade?

At the end
Paras Bajaj Apr 18
At the end of the day,
I was meant to fall apart.
I cared for the one
who kept breaking my heart.

At the end of the night
I was meant to be awake.
I only cared for the one,
that was my only mistake.

At the end of the day
I was meant to be alone.
I cried for the one
whose heart was a stone.

At the end of the night
I was meant to die.
I believed in the truth
but the truth was a lie.

Wondering what should I say, cause’
it feels like, there’s nothing to see through.
Wondering what should I write, cause’
it feels like, the words have left me too.

Wondering where to begin from, cause’
it feels like, in the end there’s nothing new.
Wondering whom to look up to, cause’
it feels like, I am leaving everyone I knew.

Wondering if I should stay or leave, cause’
it feels like, nothing would make me wise.
Wondering whom to trust now, cause’
it feels like, eyes are only filled with lies.

wish you were still mine.

It’s really been so awful.
Can you heal my wounds?
I’m tired of being alone.

It Scares Me
Paras Bajaj Jan 19
The emptiness in my eyes,
The truth behind my lies,
The fall before my rise,
And the goodbyes;

It scares me.

The dark beneath my skin,
The light within my sins,
The voice that loudly sings,
And my broken wings;

It scares me.

The scars I can't heal,
The pain I can't feel,
The loss I can't deal,
And when I am real;

It scares me.

The silence in my little talks,
The stillness in my moonlit walks,
The thought of separate ways,
And my numbered days;

It scares me.

The demons under my bed,
The words spinning in my head,
The blood in my sweat,
And my cold breath;

It scares me.

Best-Friend
Paras Bajaj Jan 18
You stood by my side
when I couldn't sleep
on cold and lonely nights.

You stood by my side
when I was losing
everyone in my sight.

You stood by my side
when I kept over thinking,
felt scared and terrified.

You stood by my side
when I wanted to quit
and commit suicide.

You stood by my side
when I wanted to hide.
You became my best-friend
and that's how I feel inside.

I think of you in the running showers.
I think of you in the scent of flowers.
I think of you when I am asleep.
I think of you in the memories I keep.

I think of you when I am low and high.
I think of you when I fail and try.
I think of you in summer and snow
I think of you in dark and glow.

I think of you in wrong and right.
I think of you in black and white.
I think of you in scars and screams.
I think of you in hopes and dreams.

Past Midnight
Paras Bajaj Jan 16
A dark room and sharp blades,
where the light of hope always fades.
And when it is the pain I need to feed;
the more I cut, the more it bleeds.

A lonely room and no ears,
where no one ever hears.
And when someone I need by my side;
emptiness seek and everyone hides.

A long way and no right road,
where my heart always explodes.
And when my secrets echo through time;
I remember when you used to be mine.

the secrets that I hide.

I cannot ask from you,
to be there all along.

I cannot expect from you,
to look for me and find.
I wish you only knew,
all that goes through my mind.

Someone pulled me closer,
when you pushed me away.
When you told me to get lost,
someone asked me to stay.

Tell me what I did wrong?
Tell me what I did right?
One threw me into the dark,
and the other, into the light.

While you counted my flaws,
someone loved me anyway.
While you ruined my nights,
someone saved my day.

Tell me what I did good?
Tell me what I did bad?
One made me the happiest
and the other, only sad.

You shouldn’t settle for someone

You shouldn’t settle for someone
who treats you like a second choice.
You really deserve more than better

I am starting afresh, starting new,
not with the many, only with a few.
I left behind what did not grow,
held the door open, asked them to go.

For this year, my head is very clear,
who doesn't uplift you, really ain't your dear.
For this year, my heart is very aligned,
who is not kind, really ain't worth your time.

Strangers Again
Paras Bajaj Dec 2018
I took the high road
while you were catching a plane.
We didn't put efforts to decode
instead we became strangers again.

I took the yellow pills
while you were dancing in the rain.
We never climbed uphill
instead we became strangers again.

I took the therapy
while you were inside my brain.
We never resolved our issues
instead we became strangers again.

I disappeared into the thin air
cause' you never felt my pain.
We were never meant for each other,
that's why we became strangers again.

The Cycle
Paras Bajaj Dec 2018
First your expectations get hurt
and then you just try to blend in.
You pretend everything is splendid
and then there comes your ending.

Second you try to stay away
so you won't get into the bubble.
You forget what you had to say
and then there comes the trouble.

Third when you want to call
so you don't want to be forgotten.
You try and get up knowing you'd fall
and there comes your rock bottom.

I am alone.
With just some people I'm moving on.
Some talk less, some talk a lot.
I don't know if they are friends or not.

I am alone.
With some fears I'm moving on.
Some are scary, some are not.
I don't know if they are real or not.

I am alone.
With some deep wounds I'm moving on.
Some hurt more, some hurt less.
I don't know if they will heal or not

I am alone.
With a fake smile I'm moving on.
Sometimes looks good, sometimes not.
I don't know if it works or not.

I am alone.
With some burdens I'm moving on.
Some are huge, some are little.
I don't know if I will repay or not.

I am alone
With some secrets I'm moving on.
Some can save me, some can lead me to death.
I don't even know my remaining breaths.
