shruti modi

(31-01-1990 / kolkata)

no tears to cry


You were the spirit in my life
Like a flame burning bright
You showed me who I was
You showed me what we could be

I cried all the time
But not a tear in your eyes..
leaving everything, you went away
Leaving me behind alone
You weren’t yourself that night
And with you leaving in the middle of the night
I thought I wouldn’t survive

Now that you’ve come
I can’t take you back
It was you who cheated
And I thought something was my fault.
No tears are left to cry again
I have no will to see you again
I have no guarantee to trust you again
I have no place for you in my life
You are a lie
For you, I have no wish to cry

    To love God
    To love mom
    To love dad
    To love bloods
    To love body
    To love soul
    Love has many colours like nature. A poet or a painter has limitations to compose or paint it. Thanks Shruti for your emotions. (Report) Reply

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
