Let’s waste time

You know how when you are reading something, you want to take out a highlighter to mark those important points that you want to remember? If I had a highlighter and lyrics to this song in front of me, I’d mark every single line.

This song, my favorite love song, my favorite life song, has all that I want, all that I believe in and all that I am. If someon ever wanted to know who or what I am, they should read this song, in between the lines – it’s all there. I am as lost in this song as I am lost listening to this song. It has all the phases of my life and it has my future.

Thank you Snow Patrol for writing and singing this.

We’ll do it all
Everything
On our own
We don’t need
Anything
Or anyone
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
I don’t quite know
How to say
How I feel
Those three words
Are said too much
They’re not enough
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life
Let’s waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads
I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they’re all I can see
I don’t know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Invalid

You remembered those butterflies in stomach
and those declarations of forever love;
you could still smell the intoxication
and see the smile after those I love yous.
But what you forgot, somewhere down the line
was that unwavering belief that this world,
isn’t as bad as it seems as long as you are together
and that this belief passes on, but does not die,
does not become invalid.

We all love and continue to fall in love. I know lot of our beliefs get trashed when we lose someone we love but where do they go?

They stay right there. Until you are ready to pick them up once again.

That disappointment in your eyes,
I’m all too familiar with it.
I see the same – in the mirror,
the only difference being
that in your piercing stare
I see one more thing –
the increasing will to lose me.

Waking up hastily
to flashing news
of humans failing
to save humanity;
watching from home
men in arms
wanting to protect
from impending revenge;
putting on clothes,
her favorite dress
and unlike her,
some sharp makeup,
thinking to herself
if today’s it,
atleast,
she’d die pretty.

Funny, you’d think I’d struggle
after ending years of togetherness
we liked to call love,
but darling, you failed to realize
that in the midst of games
of blames and fights,
I learned to live, like you didn’t exist.

After long, I thought about the old love. It’s already a distant memory but the learnings are intact, as new as ever 🙂

After all,
in the end,
we’re all just stories,
to be read by many,
understood by some
and hopefully saved
in heart, by one. ❤️

Moving inches closer to myself
wrapped in your arms and legs,
thinking about the frail threads
that hold us together for now
and slowly, as these threads begin
to loosen, move further away
till they can no longer hold it together,
I stay, as a whole, in myself
but now without you, your arms and legs.
