IN OUR LITTLE SMALL VILLAGE

They come into the present

With a past shining like the stars, 

Their records are clean, and they have no scars,

With mouths full of gargantuan exploits, 

The evidence lies in their social media page


They speak like gurus with sugarcoated tongue and a friendly accent 

Hurray! heads nod in agreement

And the soul is elated


We could bury our head to defend them

For their innocence is seen on their face,

Their voice speaks softly, 

So softly, that it can touch a heart of stone 


Their tears falls unexpectedly, in pitiful drizzles or great torrents,

And they attract the empathy and sympathy of kind souls and folks alike 


But the painful part of the story

Is the discovery that...

They're not who we thought they were

And far from what they claim to be!


How distressing is the drama of pretence,

And how dramatic are it's actors and actresses!


Lies could be sweet and impressive

And appearance could be deceptive, 

Pretence isn't just a word 

But the character of folks

With no value for their reputation...


In our little small village

We all knew each other,

And it was difficult for people to fake...

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

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..
