Suicide Note by the Princess

Read the last blog post to understand this one better! :)

"While I keep asking my self
Of why I let go
Of the love that was knocking
Right outside my door

It isn’t a fairy tale
He though nearing a prince charming
Life well we know is a bitch
And I gave in to its wicked schemes

Now that he is gone
Life did not cease to grow
And when I thought I had renounced love
The rain wrote his name on my window

Eyes flooded, lips quivered
Those long conversations appeared hanging in thin air
I shut my eyes to clog all ways
But his love shouted of promises
In my ears

I was scared of the blows that rained on me
When once I returned empty handed
From the threshold of love
And now that I have lost my way
Some far-away distances I must cover
In the quest of his love
To explore it within me
Something says I shouldn’t give up
That I should be a fighter
Look for the face that make the stars in the sky
To shine a little brighter

Even if I give up the quest to life
The heart I believe will continue
Reaching out to his ends in glee
While I die, set me ablaze
But keep safe these eyes of mine
That are turned towards him, expectantly."

Of a Guarded Heart.

A guarded princess lay in her castle
Protected she remained
From the storm of emotions
That might wither her, she thought
For love didn’t quite lay by her side
Left her abode once
So now she fought
Against every sentiment that even tried
To create a space in her heart

One fine winter noon
While she stood by the porch
A bangle seller came across
She descended down the castle
Heads turned
Her beauty was beyond any admiration

She posed her hand
The bangle seller looked
Stupefied by her charm
Arrested in love he stood
As he touched her hand
It nearly slipped
From the white glistening skin
As smooth as silk

She smiled at him
And ran back to the castle
His touch inflicted the chords
She had long sheltered

This became mundane
They would steal glances when he walked by
While every winter noon
At the porch, her hair she would dry

She stood before the mirror
Caressed her hair
Tears rolled down her eyes
For she was now scared
Of the brewing love
That she ignored
Of the passion that made its way
Through the walls of her heart
Through all the choked ways

She couldn’t have been in love again
Doesn’t it befall once?
With questions in her heart she tussled
Though every time she saw him,
Her heart never ceased to pounce

As she walked by the garden one night
He stood before her with all delight
She turned her back for she fumbled
She couldn’t hide the love
Apparent from her eyes

He asked for her hand
Announced his heart

She still couldn’t buy
She was in love
For they say, once smitten, twice shy
She ran away saying
“You must go, for I don’t want this from life”
He went ahead with his head down
Lamented for he couldn’t be her knight

She stood behind another wall
Walls all again
Looked down to see him walk away
With tsunamis tussling in her eyes
A silent tear made its way
She realized love it was
But was unsure whether she could cater anymore
To the sting of love
So she nudged it away

Another noon when the bangle seller came by
He didn’t look towards the porch
She still stood by the side
Stealing glances at the other woman
Who now was buying the bangles
She had denied
Envious she ran down and called him out
He left with the woman
SORRY alone he said in reply

Once love left her, now she let it go
Pangs of pain though were there to stay
A heavy heart is like a heavy cloud
Both when let lose, do better, they say

She would then remain at the porch
Even afraid of love
She had denied all the red in her life
But in no time red took the better of her
When out of resentment she let herself lose
In the wind, as she stood above the porch
And finally ousted her battle with love and life
The red blood still wasn’t as red
As her soft effervescent cheeks
And they announced, the princess died.
