The muted echo

Posted by vas in Poems | 7:50pm

I want to speak without words
I want u here without me reaching out
I am fearfully emotionless
I am painfully numb
Will u understand without an explanation?
But, there's nobody to listen to my silence
I'm sinking in the vacuum
Laughing at myself
How stupid I've been
Looking out for help blindly
Ignoring what I already know
No matter how many people I know
There's nobody who knows me
There's nobody to listen to my silence
Like a friend I've always been
To friend as well as foe
But nobody has seen
The need to help a doe
Lost in herself
Lost under expectations
Lost but not forever
She awaits your light
Dear friend
Kindly find her
Before hope turns to hatred
Fear swallowed by anger
Candor becomes caustic
And bitterness is all that remains
Of something once so pure.
Somebody! Listen to her silence....

Failed to learn again

Posted by vas in Poems | 6:31pm

When you love someone truly
You are so blinded
That you lose sight of the mask.
A small breach in the faćade
And the whole illusion is shattered.
Remember! Never get too close
As when the curtains burn out
And the act falls apart
You may get scalded too...
But Alas! The human heart
The innocent ignorant heart
When will thou learn?!
You heal, only to repel again
Someone you just started to trust
The trust that had spread
And rooted in the mind
Such that when the tree wilted
The soil weeped too...
