The Ballads of a Stranded Soul

"The teller and the tale are very different, never forget that"

Month: February, 2015


Into the mists, colder than our hearts

Where the eyes can’t see much further than us

I’m afraid of what lies beyond

Don’t let go of my trust, I don’t have a silver yarn

To guide me back or I’ll be lost here forever

Closer, to the edge

If you regret the moment that we ever once had

I’ll turn around and never look back

Into the hollow dreams I’ll push myself

Just clear this mist hiding the truth between us

Where the memories fall into the deepened dark

I’ll show you my fall, the way I’m going

But don’t follow me, for it’s a cruel world

Where I wouldn’t know you for who you are

And I’d fall in love with you again!





I don’t remember what I tried to forget

Lost words that were better left unspoken

The days that were gone, that were never to happen again

You were one in a million and I was a thousand to two

Now is the time to forget, for the flames to burn me and you

Until we are, the ashes of our past

I’m crying, with my deepest voice

For my sins, that were once yours and mine

I’m sorry, maybe, we’ll never meet again.

Remember the time, when my eyes would speak to you

The birth of a dream, on your quivering lips

The start of a journey, that knew no end, until now

We all fall prey, to the voice of our glory and pride

Forsaking our fate for the love that once burnt, bright

Do we stand for a reason, our mistakes, a lesson

For the good and evil to learn

Our moments together, to live for, the truth or to die

We were once lovers, but we fight till death

Who would win this war, is it the beginning to an end?



Unspoken Words!

I once had your heart and you reforged mine
A shimmering one with your artisanal hands
Fragile as it was, yet it felt safe in your clasp
Every word I spoke, a reflection of your love
Every song had a tune, that would resonate only to your voice
Without your light, the world fell silent to my ears
Your alluring kiss, irresistible in my thoughts
Vices subdued, left me believing they were gone
Only to be buried deep within me unbeknownst
As one left the other would take its place,
To haunt me of my betrayal to them
Your radiant skin, would once fill the light in my eyes
Now I look at the sun, without having to blink twice
If we loved to let go, why did we put our hearts into it?
What if I were to forget that we ever fought,
That I were to remember only our days together?
That ignorant bliss satisfying my soul.
Would you feel betrayed too,
If I chose to perish in the pensive of your thoughts?
When I couldn’t even look at your face,
Yet I chose to kiss the cold air
That limned our memories, under the borrowed light of the moon.
What has changed between us?
The impatient eyes, and the restless heart still remains
Yet the distance never fades, and happiness still evades me
I seduced your mind and your body was my curse
Your touch, were my unspoken words…
Don’t look back now, on the road to nowhere
The footprints from the dust still remains
For your dreams, are my limbo to fade in!
