Valentine Day ...



As it has been for the last 23 years, I am alone on this special day. The day due to which, Archie's etc. has a fields day despite the economic recession. I thought lets write an ode to this day, a sad one though.

The song on my lip
Has no meaning or drift
If I get on, back on the road
My lonely soul
Aches for its goal
Come fill me with, love and adore

She never realized
Might never realize
But I will remain for my valentine
I have weathered the wind
I will weather the storm
In the hope that, the end will be mine

It has started to rain
Are my prayers in vain
I am in love, with my pain
This is the story
Of every broken heart
Clich├ęd might be, but never stops

This Valentine, every valentine
I promise to wait for divine
Staying for the one, with my back on the wall
I am sitting and humming my song

very plain n simple.. yet one of ur best.. conveys the pain in ur heart.. but my friend why do u feel lonely on valentine.. when u always have ur "tanhai" by ur side.. anyways.. valentine is just another day for me atleast.. bcoz.. one day can't become special if u treat every day to be special..

while reading the post i had latika's theme song (the instrumental from slumdog) playing on my media player...the song's melancholic undertone fitted your words like a glove..anyways it is melancholic but beautiful as usual...the sadness and pain showed through your words..

ps: don't worry bro you'll get a nice girl soon...hopefully... :)

Som said...

Latika's theme and Valentine day ... deadly combo ..
