Behind The Mask. Poem by shreya nair


Somewhere beyond the horizon a bluebird wails
I know that feeling; I know that heart that ails.
It’s not the right time to say to you this,
I know it’s too late to think,
But you still walk through my way,
Even though, you are miles away.
Walking through the path you left behind,
Searching for the heart you took away.
The spin of love and hatred is only a coin’s flip away
But what if it’s conquered by shadow of betrayal?
The pieces of my heart which you broke
Stares at me like I am not left with any last resort,
You betrayed me in every walk of life,
But I trusted you still,
Is that my default or your perfection?
Your soft calm smile doesn’t assure me anymore,
I am awake now, and I untangle you from me.
You’re loving hands and lips that appeared tender
As I bleed, I swear I won’t anymore surrender.
With a sigh, I remember those memories,
Which now taunt me?
As these lovely memories die,
I bid you goodbye
i part my way...
