Look out for me?


Close your eyes and count till ten
Look out for me
In the breeze that carries my scent
I hope you turn around locating me in the crowd then
In the chill of the wind
Turning your nose red
At the shore of your heart
Where a few castles once read
Of our togetherness.

Close your eyes and count till ten
Look out for me
Under the sky of our dreams
In the warmth of the firewood
Where the fervor of our breaths
Colliding with all the vehemence
Ousted the passion
Flickering in those flames.



Close your eyes and count till ten
Look out for me
Tracing the signature of my feet
Washed away by the sea
Which you tickled sometime back
And kissed
Whilst a silver anklet with hearts and stars
You tied around it.



Close your eyes and count till ten
Look out for me
On the canvas of the love that was
With the brightest hues
In the folds of the sheets that lie indifferent now
Where I would duck in and peep through one eye
I wasn’t the naughty one, or was I?!
Concealing the smirk
Oh the smirk, your secret confidant!



Close your eyes and count till ten
Look out for me
In those drowsy days
In those sleepless nights
In a lifeless life, that found abode in you
And now skirts around in oblivion
Of what, they call as life.



Close your eyes and count till ten
Look out for me
I am standing there, still.

Living in a longing, of the day
When you will close your eyes and count till ten
To look out for me, if at all.
Else, denial works for a lovelorn
Who will keep scribbling
Pouring out all the pain
Smiling at everyone, when they take your name.
