In Bruises

Promises made in haste
slow to take an offence;
Thoughts slur through flowing tears,
pain meanders on passing memories;

Somewhere, the best of thoughts thrown,
sum up, few, from dirts thrown,
some words in my frown,
have hurt you I reckon!


If seeds flow with wings,
in spirits to drink this pain
I'ld have sent them to you...!


If nightmares have souls,
I'ld have warned you
to be cautious, 'I'll hurt you'...! !


If faith has no desires
I'ld have never showered
my love on you...! ! !

If you exist there in pain,
its even in my vein
we are no vain
to show this world
pain exists dear...

let, rest in breathing rivals
I stand infront of my mirror...
in bruises!

    The thoughts and memory of what has happen, lie upon the days in which look back, of the pain, of the tears, and of what should have been done but was not done, the central tendency of emotions also takes part of the bruise, and then makes sounds of all the thorn and feared moments, Great Reflection as always
