All i have to do is take my mind off her...

And all I have to do is take my mind off her..
And all I have to do is forget her…

Sharp words daggered into my heart…left my soul to bleed.
It felt heavy and hard…as it fell on me, my most cherished creed
Love they say is accompanied by madness and is blind..
But my love had eyes, they saw the blade….it left me to the grind..
Every emotion thwarted and smashed against her hate…
She stood tall as ever…and I lay down and dead…stretched straight..

Her thoughts questioned the will that stood for long..
guarding her presence with a love so strong..
refusal was the retort to every endeavor..
mock the serene water..after its stirred..

pulled the moments out of my soul…
Examined, analyzed and dropped them on the floor..
Black was the reward to the rainbow of my love..
The cost was counted and it left me feeling like a whore…

The echoes were quite…the lull prevailed..
The storm had struck…my care was nailed..
And I felt the pain…down to my heart..
She came.. and finished me up… while I was looking for a start..
Fights.. had gone worse…taste of the bitter began to sprawl..
the walls that guarded the love…began to fall…
the damage was maximum this time..
it left no traces of trembling hopes..
which held us back after every nightmare…
no more were those ropes..

the world counseled me to move on….
My silence counseled me to move on…
My brain counseled me to move on…
But the journey has already come to an end…
Fate, luck, charm….nothing on no more I depend..
The lines seem to vanish away real fast…
The numbered breathes…preparing for the last..
Sleepless eyes… chasing away the night from the window of the room…
The day begins to mourn…my unspoken doom….

It has been days now…life is slowly crawling towards death…
I can feel them getting tired…I can feel my exasperated breaths..
And still… they try to wake me up from my past..
And still they try to make me believe I should last…
And I still remember they speak the same words as ever before…

all I have to do is take my mind off her..
And all I have to do is forget her…
