Poem By Gajanan Mishra

I heard a song last night
Alone in my car, in the velvet dark
It epitomised my feelings, my reelings
And I began to understand

'I never lost you, you were never mine'
Those words rang true, stung my heart
Driving at one mile per hour
In the velvet dark

I smiled as the lonely tear fell
A wry, upside-down frown
And the music began to painfully soothe
In the velvet dark

You were never, ever mine
To touch, to feel, just a ghost
Of a promise, whom I would never see
In the velvet dark

Lucky those roads were quiet
No crazed drivers forcing me on
And I pulled into a hidden corner
In the velvet dark

Your heart wasn't mine
To try to hold and to repair
You needed me and I needed you
In the velvet dark

We tried to make it
Through impossible barriers
Of dreams and hopes, spinning uncontrollably
In the velvet dark

Picking up my emotions
I pulled back onto that road
Moving towards my home, my sanity
In the velvet dark

I never lost you, I'll never lose you
I'll just remember, the good times
There were a few heady nights together
In the velvet dark

So, this song I will remember
For bringing home to me
The truth, the bitter-sweet memories
Forever in the velvet dark

Cruel Twist Of Fate

How cruel is fate?
Allowing me to know you
To feel your heart, to cup your pain
To pick you up when you fall down

Tender Hearts

How can our tender hearts
Bear so much pain
Why are we able
To always love again?

Conkers (Or Maybe Bonkers)

Pull on those gloves.
Tug your hat over your ears.
Wrap a scarf of dreams around
Your neck and come join me....

The Love Motel

think I've lost faith...
There is no such thing as love
No such thing as the perfect man
Just a bitter-sweet torture

Smile :)

What makes you smile in this world?
Those things that undeniably
Make your lips curl spontaneously
At their sheer beauty?
