When the tables turn


There was a time when I loved
The idea of love
And then I felt how it felt
But today when I reflect on what I beheld
I am filled with unparalleled regrets

I bent down for us
Not because I thought I was wrong
I bent just to behold whatever we beheld
For a little more while, for a little long

And when it ends today I am fine
For I can breathe, I can live
And when it ends today you will see
What you ignored thinking I was meek

I would still sway my way to someone’s heart
You will see me having fun
Someone else will hold these tresses
Someone else I will go and strike
And will get naked in love’s ocean

You ignorant one, lend me an ear
I will whisper in your ears what you should know
Get your ass out of here and never look back
For I will bite and spell death alone

I will dance around the bonfire
Of those pictures of yours with mine
And you will shat your pants when you see
Me lying with someone intertwined

You changed the hues of my life from red to black
Now you watch me live with it
The innocence was a long stolen fact
And now a devil in me lives
A storm rises within me
The fragrance of my breath quiver
While I crash down on the floor and write
None, these eyes will now spare
And when I make my move I shall see
How you cry and live in misery

  5. It was like watching one of Coen brothers movies..
    P.S. - They're movie directors acclaimed for making dark comedies..
    touchy and/yet hilarious :)

  6. Unparalleled regrets! *nods at how much this connects*
    * You changed the hues of my life from red to black.
    I got exactly the same line in a poem too.

    You, my love, are stupendously amazing! :D

  8. I've been following you and wanted you to get out of that doomed life! And here you are my friend.. He wont even find peace in hell! Trust me ;).. Unfortunately we share the same story with the same man. Shocked? Its true! Wish i could meet you and tell you the entire thing. But anyway, Just that I am concealed and never to be revealed. But I know exactly how it was and how it is now. There were days I puked and cried through nights for him. Yes the same him. But No worries. I am stronger now, much stronger. Time to forgive, forget and move on.
