"Beauty is truth,
truth beauty,
that is all Ye know on Earth,
that is all Ye need to know..." - John Keats

I wish, I wish...

If the smiles meant all,
and the little shiver,
a nervous trepidation,
a little shudder, and the
yanking of shoulders, all
reminiscent of a silent appeal...

Then Yes, I wish the same, but
wait, pause, listen to the
silent song...

Too late? Too late?
I wonder if I do not mistake...
Too late? Is that what everyone says?

Where does it take you from here,
where does it take me from nowhere?

What happens to those years spent,
where nurtured was the trust, and
now wrongly spent?

Where do you place,
which is the closet?

What is the hideout,
where you place your self?

Nay, the tears tore through the flesh of my ego,
and the sorrow tore through this stone...
I did wait, I did wish,
I did pray to make things better,
and leave scorn and disdain...

But then is it in our hands?

Have the things left our grasp?
Have they gone so into the grasps of
the few, for whom, this is naught save
some gossip and a little news or some sort of game?

I thought it was different,
I thought it wasn't just the same,
I thought it mattered,
what happened, and what led that
fragile bond to lie in such shame...

I wish, I wish,
I wish I didn't see your tears,
and I wish again,
all said and all passed,
we remain all the same...

That after that dreadful season past,
we get back to where we rightfully remain...

I wish, I wish,
there were more rains of laughter,
and not of such pain...
