When you cry!


I have always tried hard to know why I make you cry.....why I feel so helpless sometimes.....why a single touch can change the world around us........why we love each other so much. Why does that drop touching your cheeks make me feel so vulnerable......telling me so many things that my jugglery of words fails to comprehend. If love is meant to be happy, why did I ever make you cry? Your swollen eyes demand for an answer but the questions fail me & I prefer to remain the mute spectator and let the silence speak for my love.
Maybe I could never answer you, but then I can tell you the truth of what goes through me, when you cry!!!

When you cry!

- SAPTADEEP BASU (2011)

Drops of tears trickling down your eyes,
The pain of which I could never surmise;
Your moistened cheeks desolately stare,
For a feeling I could never care.

Droplets of dew hang from your lashes,
Waiting to shed for our afternoon clashes;
& your little nose turns red with fury......
But wasn’t I always left being sorry?

Your damp pillow has its own story,
That your pale lips refuse to reveal;
Your voice cheats your feelings again,
& the chaotic silence is what that remains.

Your heavy breath & your pounding heart,
They quietly crave for my loving touch;
& doleful me, in search of rhymes,
For a twinkle in your eyes, in search of a smile.

Once again I muster up courage to hold your hand,
Promising a world more than a pack of cards;
Wipe your tears for the final time,
& love you till the world aparts.
