Such Is Life
By Aayush Gugnani
In the breezy summer
With the golden sun,
Shimmering at the horizon
I stood there in oblivion.
Standing at the worlds end
Waiting for you to come back,
I clinged on to my memories with you
Cherishing our moments as a pack.
What once was a dream for me,
Became a reality.
Once I was an ill fitted piece
Soon we became family.
We held each other in times of despair
And had each other’s back here & there.
Never had the world,
Seen such a ravishing pair.
We were unbreakable,
Like a covalent bond.
At least that’s what people said,
To which we replied it was a miracle of the gods’ wand.
Alas ! Now you’ve gone too far
Away from the gusty winds
Away from being what you were
Or who you are.
I’m not complaining for the woes
Happy you finally got what’s yours.
I’ll be there if and when you return
To fill your saddened pores.
Life without you in the beginning was tough,
Nights were endless and rough.
Though I learned to cope with them,
Yet, I wonder how can I pacify my sinking soul.
O how do I break myself from these shackled chains?
To go back to being what I really was.
Don’t ever think I’m not with you.
I’m an undercurrent,
You might not be able to see me
But in all your times of both happiness and despair,
I will be omnipresent.
Life’s a chaos without a pattern
One moment we’re here,
The other we’re not.
Yet, I try to maintain positivity in life.
Try to look up and find the northern light,
Look down to see the sea shimmering bright.
The haze maybe temporary,
But the maze is permanent.
Our laugh maybe fading,
But our love for each other,
Our love is effervescent.
