At the middle of the way!

It wasn’t love in your eyes
It was the sympathy only
Oh my, why didn’t I listen?
When you said, “Don’t love me this much!”
You said it so many times
But I kept repeating crimes,

You looked void seeing me loving you
Juggling with yes and no
The waves of your heart
But you never showed
I couldn’t see what was inside
How could I?
You did everything to hide,

If only I had stopped
I would have not carried this far
When you remained where you were always
If only you told me what you were thinking
We could have remained the best friends
Not standing at different ends.

It wasn’t my fault at all
Those were the emotions made me blind
Even when you said “Don’t love me this much!”
You never sounded to mean that way
You wanted me to love you
You loved to see me dying,

You too felt the need of my love
Juggling with yes and no
The desires of your heart
But you never showed
Now you really want me to stop doing it
How can I?
There’s no switch which can be turned off,

If only I had stopped
I would have not carried this far
When you remained where you were always
If only you told me what you were thinking
We could have remained the best friends
Not standing at different ends.

Now, I have carried way too far…
and you remained at your place…
I thought you were walking with me…
I was blind, believing my dreams…
Now there is no turning back…
And you left no trace…
We were best friends so could have remained
But you left me alone
At the middle of the way…

  3. straight from the heart Neeraj! vulnerability of love..

  4. Reblogged this on onlinefunland.

  5. Neeraj…do you want my thoughts as a reader or a writer…they are separate…and one is emotional, and one is analytical…I am capable of giving you one or both dear poet.

  6. Awww…so relieved you are not upset by what I said. Sleep dear one…and really, I love your work, and I learn new things every day too. xo We learn together.

  7. I aspire to be a song writer since I know no musical instruments as of now.. i only write words.. I am planning to learn Guitar and then I’ll start composing these by making necessary editing. 🙂

    • :)Always look ahead…’good writers’ get crappy because they never reach farther, change genre or care what the reader/listener might get…make it 100% about them…musicians and poets need to consider their audience and be true to themselves…it’s a tricky line to walk. xo Seriously, what time is it there..if it is night time…sleep!

    • You said it very right, I’ll keep it in mind.. it’s 2:40 AM here.. I guess I must sleep now.. Good Night! 🙂

    • 🙂 Good night.xo
