Foolish you

You are getting nervous, do you know that?
Your gaze is at her but you’re trying hard to look away
Your heart beats are skipping the regular count
It’s not normal, can it be gainsaid?

Your side of garden is full of roses in the times of drought
There are butterflies fluttering spiralling the red hearts in the peak summers
Your days and nights are in direct proportion
to the number of times in your mind she appears
Your wishes are different shades of the same colour
Nod your head if it’s not a usual behaviour

You are telling yourself that telling her won’t do any good
May be you’re right but the truth will still goon
You’re running in circles around your own mind
In your head, your words are hunting you, and they simply never die
You are chasing the squirrel of solution around the tree,
the roots of which simply do not exist
underneath the grounds that you’re standing upon..

The memory of the facts seem to grind your skull
Your heart aches, suffocates, forgets and jumps into the deep dark waters
But soon you heartless feel the empty space within you, in the core
You miss the childlike crazy heart that you wore
The heart that made you a demon, bird and human
You are teased by the lost innocence that you just threw away
And you’re left alone staring blankly into the space

You’re getting pale, do you know that?
You disowned nonchalantly your true colour
as if you have the ability to weave another
Your artificial colour painted on your skin will leave in coming seasons
Your so called love by then, will have deprived you of everything
Foolish you, you gave up your heart just for nothing..

So listen to me, and pay some heed
Whistle the tune of joy, of simple innocence and not greed
Desert the bloody roses of grim soils of the superficial gardens
Unhinge your mind off her; the knot of the troubles will be untied
Rediscover clear skies, and soar your kite of destiny high
The dry cutting pain of the emptied space of your heart
Will be made fertile once again for your lovely heart
And promise it you’ll never give it away just like that..!!

Also, I came across a beautiful song. You may like to listen to it here.
