Each Footsteps! - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar

Each footsteps I heard
Thought you were at doorsteps.
My curiosity made my
Feet's moves towards the entrance door
My hands in no time opened the doors
I dressed up beautifully
With a pleasant smile
To welcome you my dear.
My Eyes were searching
Only for you dear
Waiting to see you.
Just to have a glance.

Many days passed by
We were staying under one roof
But so aloof we stayed.
With Just a bye you left me
Everyday,
And each footsteps, I heard
I thought it was you.
I was excited to see you
I wanted to talk to you something
To whisper something in your ears
My eyes were looking only for you.
But
You never heard my whispers dear
You never saw my smile
You never looked at me at least once.
You came in, I opened the door only for you dear
But
All my enthusiasm drained away
All my love faded away
As each days went on this way.
Each time
When you came inside just saying hi
Without even having a glance at me dear

Why are you so aloof from me
Don't you feel the same love for me dear
Don't you remember how we cherished
Each moments
How could you ever forget that
Its not just the moments we shared

Did I flirt with anyone?
Did I ever opened the door for anyone.?
My heart opened the door only for you dear
Only and only for you dear!
As I loved you, only you, so much Dear!

    One day we realise how our lives are travelling without those footsteps. To give so much of yourself with no love received.... time to change the key. X (Report) Reply

    Kisi Urdu shayer ka ek sheyr hay
    Andaz hobahoo teri awaze pa ka tha
    Nazrein utha ke dekha to jhonka hawa ka tha.

    Your love has turned into the shadow that was once a visible sight to hold.
    What was once a rock of the foundation has rubbled into sand.
    But take heart if you have sand make cement and build a new castle instead
    One with a magic prince of love sure to spin your head. (Report) Reply
