The pain of togetherness by Vikas Chandra

Wonder how, now, we see through it allWhims of love, saccharine smiles! Life’s cherished haul?

Don’t recall, where we left, that self of ours

Which was us, once, not these, souls with scars
Was it love, which made us, make this abode?

Then it bemoans why, our lone dream, shadowed

By a chase that spent, our lives to the core

See, how the tide of time, wrecked our ferry, ashore
How we gazed at moon, holding vows, from the roof

Still the moon does rise, finds those lovebirds aloof

Their forlorn nest, dying lovelorn quest

Echoes of that fiesta, and this solemn fest
Do we still possess, do we still belong?

To that tender spirit, that once, made us long

How had we sobbed, our hearts out, that day

At last, we got each other, but, that love lost, on the way
“Ego” was some species, extinct, in our cozy world

How it calls the shots now, a utopia, rendered blurred

Each whiff of space, which once, smelt of trust

Now clogs the breaths, doubt-laden dust
How we spent that time, and this time spends us

Gone those days, we missed the bus, on purpose

To walk as one, lavishly, on the mystic lanes of love

How short on time, now, these parted lives, we shove
So, shall we sleep, one more night, on that wrinkled bed?

Devour mean flesh, now, or mate souls, unwed

This pain, we share, unfeeling yet, why, to our plight?

Shan’t we search, the flare, that once, kindled our delight
What it takes, to stitch that love, threadbare, left by time?

Let’s vow our hearts and souls, once, to that dream, sublime

So many yarns, to fall in place, might miss the same finesse

Better still, soiled angel’s face, than, the pain of togetherness
