You have done as you had promised
No two days have looked the same
I’ve never known the peace of sanity
Since the day I took your name

I can feel my nerves are fraying
And my patience wearing thin
I can feel my hair is graying
From the torment I am in

You never told me what you’d offer
Is the home I never knew
Is the deepness of a heartache
And the wholeness I’d feel too

Many lessons I’ve uncovered
Since the day we said “I do”
And I never will recover
From what binds me here to you

Neither one of us deserves it
Lord knows that we have tried
Both a burden and a blessing
But this fire I cannot hide

You will ever burn within me
When we’re lost there we are found
I will follow this horizon
I will chase you round and round

Feel the earth give way beneath me
Let the waves crash overhead
Breathe the air of sweet surrender
Hear the words we’ve left unsaid

I am yours now and forever
Please be mine hereafter true
Take this hand and run beside me
All that matters is it’s you

Don’t believe coincidences
Only broken are we free
In this life there are no constants
Will you please be that for me?

All the phrases in the world
Can’t recount just what you mean
When in the air that e’er surrounds
Resonate the silly things

When your eye catches mine
Home within your arms, I dream
That you’re mine and I am yours
And that is all that we’ll ever need

It’s beyond all the lies
When we were told that we were sinning
There is truth that I found
And it’s been there from the beginning

We could chase anything
But we know it cannot mean
More than these words cannot describe
Forevermore my everything
Recounting what it’s like to be married to the love of your life, best friend, and greatest challenger.
I'm still shy,
And it's not a lie.
They ask me, why?
But I don't have a proper reply!

This fact, I can't deny!
That, I'm an unsocial guy.
They ask me to give it a try,
But I can't talk to them eye to eye.

I'm a person with no social ally,
Because I know, they all are a sly.
Yet sometimes, I look for them nearby,
Mostly then, when my pain leads me to cry!

Now, it's time to identify,
In actual, who am I?
Am I born to be a societal fly?
Or, I'm destined to chase the sky?
A flow of rhymes....

I think
my time is near
this time
the end,
I do not fear
the whispers
that i hear,
I am calm,
my breathing,
it is breaking.

I still care
If you'd care
I exist no more
I am that vain
even in pain,
I'd seek more
as my mind
connects back to you.

The rain has stopped
my heart will too,
it is all part of nature,
the destiny,
we met,
but so unclear
we'd go
as destined to.

So here it is,
my last
it will be
a fragment of you.
And here it is,
it is the final goodbye,
fare well, you

Loving you is like burning with desire every second ,
Unable to utter anything .
Your love is so strong yet so quiet .
You can never get over me i know .
We are destined to lead a different life .
And maybe we're destined to feel our love was impossible over and over again .
We both crave each other , but
Refuse to fight for each other .
A love never lived ,
Nor it will die !
The most confused you will ever get is when you try to convince your heart and spirit of something your mind knows is a lie.”

Let's just say
we were destined
to stand out,
and yell on top of our lungs
till the world notices us.

Ambition, I need to embrace.
Perplexed by the facts of bountiful banes.
Remember to love myself first and foremost.
I shouldn't have to accept but must have.
Love, will you still feel though ain't alright?
Be true to myself 🙂

I miss days we knew before
Both of us were free
Blissfully naive
Our lives were so easy

I took it for granted
Then it went to hell
Would give up everything
To again be under that magic spell

Back when each day was happy
Along with each night
A simple conversation
Occurred without a fight

I miss not carrying weight of the world
Weightless when we'd kiss
Those people we used to be
Would be shocked it's come to this

How did we let potential slip away?
Is this what we're destined to be?
Is it possible to attain
The future young hearts used to see?
Its true that you dont realize how blessed you are until those blessings are taken away

i wonder if you still have the memory
of how it felt to possess me
or how sweet i tasted,
our bodies pushing against each other
screaming in your brain
burns of the third degree,
just like mine
a ghost in the background
taunting, yearning for ecstasy
bathing in endless torments
a martyr for your love.

To love for the sake of love,
To care because you do,
To repeat that choice,
That choice is you.
It needs no words,
It is patient and kind.
It works on self-sacrifice.
It is pure and unreasonable.
Will it keep on going forever?
When will love ever end?
What motivates you?
Where does it lead?
Being alone again,
Begets a heavy heart.
Belief does not mend wounds.
Because my heart is not enough.
Randomly composed. I'm in pain. Let me bleed.
