The unknown shadow!

unknown shadow poem by saurabh chawla

Looking in the mirror so close
I see a reflection of the unknown
Leave me wondering always
Whether I am awake or in a doze

Like the moon eclipses the sun
It takes upon me when I am weak
Slowly transforming me to a state
That of a devil or some god in heaven

Losing control is the main factor
That takes away the natural prowess
Within me lives someone I guess
Willing to come up from hideout as a benefactor   

Persevering to this bizarre chain of events
I fear of losing the one I have most important
Sometimes I feel dejected, sometimes depraved
But this unknown shadow of a stranger prevents!

I Have Waited Enough

  Walking away Past the shadows Waiting for my time You suddenly turned up All the times of pleasure Took over the pain Those unforgettable innocent eyes And that cute smile... I have waited enough You don't get it I guess you never will And it was a beautiful night The time when we kissed And stayed together Hand in hand, our love bloomed Oh, I loved every bit of it, I still do! We hit the sidewalk Walking past the insinuations And the implications Only to lose it all... I have waited enough You don't get it I guess you never will And it was a beautiful night...

I wish this night stayed....

Cold breeze grazing my feet Maybe it's an act so folly But my heart skipped a beat Surrounded by sheer melancholy Your whispers echoing in my ears Its difficult to see with Eyes welling up with tears Heart aching in writhe Winds changed the direction again Waiting for this since quite long No more I can abstain Come let's dance to the song Beneath the open sky Beside you I laid Now don't say bye I wish this night stayed...
