*Lover’s Lane*

I’m all alone,
On the Lover’s Lane,
Waiting for you.
And I knew,
You’d never come,
After all we’ve been through.

I still remember,
The day,
I said,
I don’t need you.
But, hey, hey,
Deep within,
I just wished,
You’d say
I will never leave you.

You just walked away,
Silently,
Even before I knew.
Without saying a word,
Or fighting with me,
Or asking
What did I do?

And I’m still here,
Waiting for you.
Where you left me,
Baby can’t you see?
Like I always did,
I still love you.

I’m weeping now.
All alone.
Under the moonlit sky,
As the night grew.
Gazing the stars
Oblivious as the fire files flew
And I don’t know what to do
Baby I just don’t wanna lose you.

Counting Stars

I don’t need you,
Or your smile,
Or your words,
To fool me again.

The time we spent,
Fooling around,
Counting stars,
Spending hours.

All seems now,
Just a waste,
You’ve made a mess,
Of everything thing.

You broke my heart
Every time.
And every time,
I thought it’s me.

You’re cold to me,
Since so long.
It was crystal clear,
It was all long gone.

But I was too scared,
To let you go,
To lose something,
That I never owned.

I’ve got strong now.
I pinched myself,
And woke me up.
So you can go.

I’ll spend my nights,
Counting stars,
Wiping love,
In my heart.

I’ll spend my days,
Breaking out the cage,
Chasing ghosts,
That haunt my mind.

Those three words,
I don’t want to hear,
I don’t want to say.
I’ve beaten all my fear.

I’m way too good
Without you.
Without your
Deceitful view.

I’ll cross the sea,
On a paper boat.
And won’t look back,
When I reach the shore.

Let’s split up,
And part our ways.
Burn those notes,
Forget those days.

I don’t need you,
Or your smile,
Or your words,
To fool me again.

The Next Day

I pass
Each day
Hoping to find
A little more love
From you
The next day.
And,
By the end
Of each day,
With a heavy heart,
And misty eyes,
I sob myself to sleep,
Evey night,
Waiting for
The next day.

The Chemical Brothers

You’re my friend,
You’re my brother,
You’re my guide,
You’re my teacher.

Yash, it’s just been two weeks,
That you sent me a friend request.
Seeing me somewhere,
Liking my comments.

And as I wondered,
Who is this guy.
No one sends me friend request.
But you sent, why?
I wanted to ask you,
I was shy.

Just then a message popped up.
You said ‘Hi!’
‘Oxidize me Potassium’.
I smiled
And just replied back, ‘Hi’.

And from the very first day,
It was clear
That we’re the chemical brothers
Long lost somewhere.

Our ideas ,our views
All react so well.
Our words ,our thoughts
Are 100% compatible.

I’m a sentimental fool,
Like you’re kid.
And finally I’ve oxidized you.
I think I did.

*The Moonlight Seek*

The moonlight-
What does it seek ?
The autumn breeze-
What does it sing ?
You..
You..
Yes you..
Just you..
You..
You..
Oh you..
Just you..
The moonlight-
What does it seek …?

Early morning,
As the cuckoo cries…
A pang comes by,
And wets my eyes…
A pang comes by,
And wets my eyes…
The clouds swallow,
My dreams today,
The wind robbed me
And flew them away.
The moonlight-
What does it seek …?

In a moonlit night,
The twinkling stars…
Unleash a new magic,
Into my eyes…
Unleash a new magic,
Into my eyes…
My heart,
Flies by,
To a far away land…
To reach my village,
My village courtyard…
The autumn breeze-
What does it sing …?
You…
You…
Yes you…
Just you…
The moonlight-
What does it seek …?
The moonlight-
What does it seek …?
