The memories that now seem lovelier than you
And the smile your thoughts trigger are what I hold on to
We are successful, lonely, strangers today as we walk past each other
We counter efficiently, breaking ourselves inwardly further and further.
The integral parts of our lives that each of us had become
Denials persisted, but in your absence, the way I would be mum..
Today, a single word seems so tough to be spoken
Inspite of the infinite confessions on the nights we had broken
We pretend to laugh without abandon, we pretend to glorify our achievements
We fight endless wars, we fly high with unmatched confidence…
Yet how we break down in solitude, on the verge of reaching the peak
The phone rings a thousand times, yet it’s never the one we seek.
Yes, I do know you feel the same, you do feel the lack
That you too tear into greater pieces, the moment you try to sew yourself back
A thousand accomplishments , yet the heart I just can’t tame
I know, that for you too, without me, it’s never the same.
