In the Cold Light of Day !

 

Oh how we loved !

With every breath, we fought for love.

With every second, we grew to become one.

With every thought, we devoured each other.

With every touch, we ignited yet another star in the firmament !

Alas !

What happened ?

In the cold light of day ?


The softness,

The urgency,

The love,

The joy,

The desire

and

The desperation.

Where is it all now ?

In the cold light of Day !?!


Thought a thousand things,

Conquered a thousand fears,

Built a thousand empires,

Loved a thousand times.

Alas !

Tiz all but vapour,

In the cold light of Day !

 


Yester night !

My every breath was sweet perfume for thee.

My every word was nectar to thine ears.

My every pore, poured forth a heady wine of love for thee.

My every embrace was silken soft.

 

Thou said it so !

Alas !

In the cold light of Day,

Why dost thou discards me like a skunk ?

Why dost thou discard me like a rice husk ?

Why dost thou discard me like an empty wine cask ?

Why dost thou discard me like a used rag ?

What happened ?

in the cold light of day !?!

 


In excitement,

I clutch at stars,

countless stars in the velvety sky.

In excitement,

I bring my closed fist to my face.

I open it slowly,

Least they should spill.

 

Alas, on opening,

tis empty !

In the cold light of Day !
