The straight face you wear
trying to hide that ache,
The casual smile that appear
I know it’s only a fake.
You walk with a gait
like everything is jolly,
The ‘too much’ effort you put
reveals the painful folly.
How much you try to hide
so much you try to control,
Just a look in your eyes
reveals the pain in your soul.
I know how it feels in your heart
when you lose the one you yearn,
Every sense, feeling and body part
screams and curses your longing.
What Ill fate -that you lost the one
the one who was so faithful?
Or may be the ill fate that you loved
which makes this pain so brutal.
I know I will keep moving on
as time heals every wound,
but time and again your memories
would make a tear trickle down.
