Deserted

On my face

There is a smile

That rivals

The content of my heart


In my eyes

You will never see pain

But there is a rain

Of tears in them


I walk 

Eating fruits

While my legs hold nothing

But a body full of sorrow


We met

Befriended each other

Like moon 

And the twinkling stars


But today

A line of dichotomy

Has been drawn in between us

Drawn by you


I know

If one would dig 

Deeper in my heart

Would see nothing


I know

If one would fly

Above the blue skies

Would see nothing


What I know

Like a filtered liquid

Only your love would be seen

In the stream of my heart


I did nothing 

But you burnt the bridge 

Of our love

To the ground 


Here I am, today

Deserted

Stained with pain

Not knowing the bane

My Endocardium

Fishes pray for the rain
But my tongue
Prays for your love

People die
And so their hearts
But mine will be there always for you

When I die
Bury me in your heart
For in it, there's a cemetery of love
