Happily Ever After

Happily Ever After

I love vicariously through lovers on the streets,
basking in their smiles and borrowing their blushes.
Reminiscing the days when we were once a thing,
without a worry of the world and destiny at our feet.

Rollickingly exuberant – freshly fallen in love.
The world was just us and we were all of the world.
“Never one without the other”, said our immature hearts,
till fate played a spoilsport and drew us apart.

My joy is fleeting and my rapture bites the dust.
Reality catches my bluff, tarnishing my dreams to rust.
I look at my fingers and your clasp is missing.
I try to feel you around, but your warmth is missing.

Through the day, all your promises have had my heart pierced.
By the night, I have had all your memories recalled and rehearsed.
Moving on seems like a distant dream – a self denied bliss,
for forgetting you even for a while seems like Judas’ kiss.

I smile incessantly, knowing no better way of hiding my pain.
But my eyes blemish the masquerade – revealing all that I feign.
If I could equate a world of happiness with just a word,
it’s the sound of your name that I would be drawn toward.

In a different dimension somewhere, we will again be united.
Frolicking madly with love and laughter…
being the same crazy ones, who once lived and loved,
And dreamed of having a “Happily ever after”…

you can love someone so much but you can never love as much you can miss them.
