Sitting on a tree branch,
Dripping her tears on its leaves,
Looking up with flooding eyes,
There is burning sun up there,
Where her heart lies,
She won’t fly towards him now,
She won’t try to catch him,
Ever again,
Not because he burns her wings, not because…
He is the reason of her pain,
He doesn’t love her and will never do, he said,
And he doesn’t want her to fly and try,
To catch him ever again,
She’s put her identity of being phoenix into a cold bag,
“Don’t open it” pasted the tag,
Though, she can never stop loving him,
She cries and dies every day,
But her real being doesn’t fade away,
She gets back into life every time,
She looks up, cries and dies,
Again and again,
He cried a million tears,
“I don’t love you” when he said,
He can’t say he needs her,
More than anybody he ever wanted,
Because he knows,
If he does,
She’ll continue flying towards him again,
Her wings will burn; she’ll fall back in vain,
no more he can be the reason of her endless pain,
He hates himself for being so warm,
When he can’t hold her in his arms,
His power is the reason of their being apart,
It burns her wings and so his heart,
He said those mean words,
Even when he knew they would hurt her so bad,
He protected her wings from burning,
by setting fire into his own heart,
May she forgets him someday,
The only thing,
He hopelessly prays.

    Ummm… I had to go back and read “I Love You” again, I felt many things similar. It was heart wrenching but a beautiful one – your words just make it even more special!

      yes it is!! See Phoenix has always been known for its endless chase to catch the sun but my Phoenix is broken and in deep deep love.. it still dies but by crying and yet rises again. We say sun is so mighty as it burns all the time but no one knows that it can also have a burning heart. Just saw them from different eyes 🙂

    Oh sakes man…You are to young to know, but no…she will never forget him…Such a gorgeous piece Neeraj.

      Thank you! I actually swapped the characters in it.. In reality Phoenix should be a male and sun female.. but since sun doesn’t feel right to be portrayed as female I swapped the characters.. 🙂

    2. ~Lady Day says:

      Very nice…I thought it was beautiful! Either way actually. Have a great night!
