COME ON~by Jernail S Anand


 

 

COME ON

it is night, dear;
when all the world has lapsed into darkness;
and only these two lamps
lighted with your love remain;

remember me when i am not around;
let these dark nights
studded with stars remind you
of my eyes burning with desire;

you are my only hope
for staying in the hell; and one day
leaving it for good

the earth and all the planets
know how polite i have been to them
even when they had squeezed me
out of life;

you will never forgive yourself
for loving yourself a little more,
and hating me a little less;

what the winds said
with the imagery of tempests;
i whispered it all into your ears in a sigh.
