Should I Or Not I..How Could I.. ?

Updated on January 5, 2013

Should I keep my mouth shut

about how I got swept off

and beaten hollow in the end by a dime

who never loved me,

Only warmed my cold blankets,fitting her soft hips?


Should I stop an avalanche of feelings

spilling over the top

whenever I see her on the display

In her dress of lace

trying to catch losers..scammers

and what the tables gather.


Should I wear a mask of solid steel

to hide my cracks,my vulnerability

whenever her eyes unintentionally park on my sphere.


Should I close my eyes

and bury my head in soft clouds

Whenever her fragrance perfumes the air that I breath.


Should I or not I

Who am I to resist a dangling bait before my eyes ?

A holy saint ?

A humble servant down in knees on the meditation's mat?

An everlasting green tree in the Arabian desert?

Who am I ,then ?

A dot on the 'l'?

Or unknown soldier of the old times

in an known barren field

dragging feet

shield and head down

'What a disgrace!' ?.

My quivering bones are straining under the weigh

of the footsteps I made on ice-glittered path.

Boldly,oddly enough,each step resonates a harmony.


Should I or not I...

How could I defy my heart and say :I am no longer in love with you.

Tears passed,

inequities got weary

But my heart always stays the same.

Loyal,in captivity of the first beat skip .

      You should. What is so bad about accepting a love story that has ended after all? Everything that begins must end...

      Sometimes you think you are recovered and no longer stuck,but just a small thing or thought passed across you mind could rekindle the old flames and makes you wishing those days never had ended.
