Hi, Guys . It’s been a while since I have found time to write something. So I thought I should share the sequel to my earlier poem “Those Good Byes”. In fact, this one was written on October 14,1998, much before the earlier poem.This was the tragic day when my friends had done their research on this guy I had a huge crush on, and the report said something like: “HE IS DATING ONE OF MY SCHOOL CAPTAIN!!” All hell broke loose. It was pure agony that I was going through. Heartbroken, I had become miserable like a wretch.
This imaginary betrayal that I had cooked up in my mind was killing me (not technically, but you know what I mean. The mushy, true love stuff!!). I was walking around with this imaginary pain and the weight of the heartbreak that this poor fellow did not even know about. What more, I secretly harbored a strong dislike for the captain whom he was dating. Years later when I read this poem I was laughing my guts out and thinking to myself, how someone can be so pathetic, but I guess that is why it’s called crush and puppy love. I am sure many of you would relate to this phase in life.
Do let me know your story if you have some.Happy reading 🙂
Oh! Can’t You !
When all is clear, when all is bright
I think of you and tears come streaming down
The feeling I feel is so strong
Oh! Can’t you feel the same?
Oh! Can’t you see we were meant to be?
On silent nights when all are asleep
I in my bed, with my pillow, I weep.
I pray to god for a moment or two to see you near
Oh! Can’t you hear the whispers of my prayer?
My eyes that search only for you
Are filled with nothing but tears.
And when I retire to my bed, with an aching heart crying for you
Oh! Can’t you hear the soft sobbing sound of my voice?
When days just pass by
And when my heart knows only to cry
Oh! Can’t you just come to me?
Oh! Can’t you say you belong to me?
