Have you ever travelled at night?
In a train maybe...
Or on a bike, car or maybe even a,
If u did... What do you see?
On long lost highways...
A street light, of hope?
In deserted cities...
A mirage of a person?
There's the coolest of breezes,
Skimming past your ears.
There's the silent chirping of birds,
Unusual though, yet,
And of course, if you are worthy,
There's the stars!
All hundreds and thousands of them,
Spread on the black canvas,
As if spilt glitter.
But why should you care about this?
Cuz you were the street light, of?
Love, I fear.
Which I may pass and then maybe never ever see again!
So I want to cling on to you,
And not go...
But as the day arrives, U go off,
And I? Must go!
And in deserted lives, around thousands we meet,
You were the one person,
I want to come to, hoping,
You, are not a mirage,
But an oasis.
Your words were the soothing breezes,
My ears die to be pierced by!
And your silences...
Just like chirping birds,
I roam around just to catch hold of 'em.
Searching where they come from,
Where they lead!
And then if I am worthy,
Then we get the stars,
And not the faults...
But maybe and just maybe,
Maybe that's what we are actually longing for u know,
The faults in our stars...
Longing, to prove the faults wrong!
I wonder if I will be forgiven,
For comparing you,
To something as simple as a night!
And as I pluck another petal off a flower,
Seated on a bench,
Alone, dreaming of being together...
'Do u love me? Love me not!'
And the last petal falls with the latter
And I think...
Stars are too simple to be proven faulty,
Let the flowers join them!
