Unfulfilled Dreams

Far away on the horizon
As the day tapers off
And the dusk like a coy bride,
Envelops the sky
My invigorating thoughts envisage someone,
Lighting up a lamp of my dreams

On an odd occasion, when
Unwieldy felt the gasp
Impulsively brimming with tears
were my eyes,
Someone with a flutter walks up
Furtively, tugging at the heart

At times the union of hearts,
Never comes through
While ties spanning generations
Sometimes emerge out of the blue
Caught in this dilemma profound, my hostile heart
Bears the brunt of others agony, despite being mine,

Privy to all the deep secrets, my heart
Knows how the dreams turned propitious
These dreams so exclusively mine,
Never shall their shadows be ever taken apart.
