When My Love Bids Adieu...

When my love bids adieu,
My world turns topsy-turvy.
As a joyful excitement it crept in,
As a painful experience it ends up.

Tectonic plates of my heart shake,
Covering crumbles all over me.
My dreamy castles doomed,
Chucked me hopeless and lost.

With crushed heart.

The poison was not strong enough,
To take my life then.
Your love is not sweet enough,

But you jabbed through its slit,
To make it bleed incessantly.

I’m not a rat anymore,
To fall in the love trap.
I’m not a moron anymore,
To leave my heart ajar.

I’m braver and stronger now,
As a learning experience it ends up!
I’m filled with new hopes and dreams now,
As a joyful excitement they creep in!

I’m not a child anymore but at heart I’m still a kid eagerly wanting to do all the naughty things and create nuisance all around me.  I might not be able to do all things tangibly. Anyway, in mind, I can do everything and anything I want and that’s what I’m doing right now: reliving in those fabulous memories in the rain. Our mind is such a beautiful machine, isn’t it?
