Pretense

Just knew your name
we smiled at each other
then exchanged a word or two
it just went further

The silent soul you were
you hid the nice in you
then came a night a-sudden
it painted a different hue

We laughed, we shared
o'boy! sarcastic we could get
everything felt so fine
I treasure every moment

Then came the wave in your life
that I always wished
dint imagine it would bring the storm
'us', all would be finished

Prayers for your happiness
still did not stop
sailed through the menace
reached the shore, anchor I did drop

Us together, having fun
yesterday, it was all so pure
today when I talk after long
is it even right, not sure

Words, gestures, questions all precise
cant even cross the fence
what to say, have to think
I feel sad, it all appears a pretense.

you may call it pretense
but it is no doubt intense
you may drop the anchor
when you feel a moment of anger
you may feel it is not right
when words fail with lips tight
but don't forget eyes still talk
and as you take your life walk
you'll see that someone by your side
be it low or high tide.

@Sumedh: Raat ko akele mein hi yeh sab sujh sakta hai. Pyaar... thats for me to know & u to guess ;)

@meenakshi:

Reason is known, lips not tight
together we see it, then pretense doesnt feel right

Man, I am really impressed by your poetries. I just can't think how someone could compose so much on regular basis.

Hats off to Saloni... :)

He teasured every moment too
As the flame within slowly grew,
Not a soul but the wave knew.

Long after embraced the wave did he
Sailed the wave merrily
Keeping the flame in him steadily
Alas the storm that came
Blew the flame and its name !

Its all now the balance game
To light the flame and sail the wave.
Pretence, Pretence is the balance name.
