Long Ago

Rating: 4.9

in your light I learnt how to love
in your beauty how to make poems
you danced inside my chest
where no one saw you
but sometimes I did
and that sight became this art
- Rumi

long ago I was free
today I am free but chained to your thoughts
long ago I was a normal being
today I am but slowly going insane
long ago I was happy in sunrise of my tomorrows
today I am happy but in the yesterday of my happiness
long ago I breathed in happiness
today I breathe but in the heartbeat of our memories
long ago I nurtured a dream
today I nurture but the flowers around the tomb of our dreams
long ago I was blinded in love
today I am blinded but only by tears
long ago I feared I would die if I didn't had you
today half of me is dead and death seems inferior
long ago I missed you as a person
today I miss that person I thought you were...
long ago only sticks, stones and words did hurt
today your silence is tearing me apart
long ago you were the light of my life
today the light of my life is fading with your light
long ago I encountered love, the moment I found your love
today love is but just a meaningless word
long ago my heart was a prairie teeming with life
today it is but a ghost town haunted by your memories
long ago you told me a beautiful lie
today I am content in all those beautiful lies
long ago you were the dancing letters of my page
today you are but a beautiful page of my past
long ago I sank myself in your jokes and laughter
today I am drowning but in the shrieks of your silence
long ago I wanted to live forever
today I exist but feel cursed with longevity

Huh! A long sigh I heaved. really, love in past, now and what will be in future nobody knows.But, love does not lose its way ever. Sometimes it has to hide its flow.Love does n't have speed like fast or slow.Great!

Love changes just like the weather. From hot to cold, calm to windy and water to ice. We have to adjust to it and not it to us. I have a poem titled Love Seesaw and If We Ever Meet Again. Please take a look when you get a chance. Nice.
