Unknown traveler

Though we have never met
And don’t think we ever will
I don’t even know you yet
You will never come to know, I exist.

Though we have not spoken
We have exchanged voices
I have called you out and heard you whisper
waking me, every morning

Though we have never taken a stroll
But I have lost and found you, everyday
You have been my crowd
I was on the train, you missed.

Though this message will never reach you
Or may be it will; may be it has
You may not take the train anymore
I wait for you, though.

"Protected Feelings"

Anyone I meet, I look for you
Whoever I talk to, I want to know what you would have said
I hear the words you never said
I agree with you.

I confess to myself I need you
And then I console myself for it
I promise not to ask the same question over and over again, to myself.
I confess again.

You have become the reason for my existence
Your smile is my sunshine, your voice is my compass of life
The words you speak weave my thoughts together
Your eyes tell me what I should believe
The flow of your hair changes the rhythm of my heart
Your fragrance lingers, never to leave me alone

And I watch you from a distance
As a stranger in a new town
You have always lived with me, but
I don’t exist for you.

Secrets are not kept, they should be protected
I will protect you from the world
And keep you away from me
I always knew, we were never meant to be.

And yet I hope for a day
When you will know
There was someone who walked by
Asked you for an address, to live forever in oblivion

Impossible Hope

I have to learn to avoid asking questions, answers to which are known and may hurt
I have to steer clear of dilemma, which I know will only entangle me more

I start speaking and then I halt
I start listening and then stop hearing you even, suddenly
I keep looking back as if waiting for something to come by
I desire for things, of no use to me anymore

I want to be in a crowd when I am desperately alone
And among swarm of people, I try to find my identity
I need to speak out
I need to listen to you
I need to hear my voice and know that you are listening to me

Unfulfilled desires, for how long will they remain so?
Is it possible to yearn for the impossible and yet hope I will return to you?

We just haven’t met yet, so what?

All my desires seem fulfilled by one look of yours
All I desire is you, when I think of you
We just haven’t met yet, so what?

If the only way to meet you is to dream of you, so be it
If the only way to have you near me is in my dreams, so be it
You are my dream; I shall meet you every night

You are my thirst and you are the quench
You are my thoughts, and my talk
Who else do I speak to about you, but myself?

You are my reason for all seasons of the heart
I skip a beat when you look at me
I breathe only because you are in my life
You are the journey, you are the destination
We shall meet one day.
We just haven’t met yet, so what?
