Eve

October 4, 2012 § Leave a comment

And so Adam called her Eve
because before her, daylights were nights
and in his heart was an unfathomable question
with a faint tinge of emptiness.

And so Adam called her Eve
because she was the prelude necessary
for the dawn that marks bright days ahead
for the “now”s that never end.

And so Adam called her Eve
because she was the line so thin
between the past and what lasts.

I’d catch a grenade for you
but you say, then what’s the use, if you’re gonna be left alone anyway.

I’d strive to be the most
but you say, it’s not a superhero that you’re looking for.

I’d stay as long as I could wait
but you say, what seems too good to be true might truly be so.

Of You And Me

Just as the night blankets the day
embracing the light with its blackness
foolish dreams start to invade
feeble faith comes into mind, amidst
ruthless fact of you and me:
everlastingly together
yet never in a way I’d like it to be.

Perfect circle marks the sky
reminding me of my heart, halved away
Again and again I cry out your name
signaling a wish never fulfilled
Even the gods, they laugh at me
tortured silently by tantalizing fantasies
yet I stayed, for
only your name ever make this heart beats fast.

Where Am I?
