Captive

I leave my suffering behind to find peace
I leave the bondage behind to be at ease
I ponder in the day and night
My foot that walk leads me aright


I want to shout from within
I was told my happiness lies therein
With that which I use to wander
Was held in what I call captive
I fought and struggled but rather
My actions, dos, and don'ts were inactive


It was in a place where no one knows
Even if you find and seek answers
All it is was just the holes
That we thought was ours


It was like a mere fantasy
but somehow it seems real
It was but all I could feel and see
I was really tired and felt so ill
I was about giving up
But something kept me on
It kept me going and moving on
That this struggle isn't for one
But to be for all
That together this can be won.


This is supposed to be the last note
But this is the beginning of the previous said
We are faithful than taking an oath
We aren't two but one instead
We aren't of hate but of love
We aren't to fight but of a dove
That we were erred
And we feel irked.


If peace could reign
It would be preferred to showers of rain.
And this be noted that-
Captivity isn't peaceful, it's troubling!!

Love held in hands,
Opens eyes to  hope in the skies;
Now I see light.

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Val' as you are,

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
